Corona Virus Response

A Christian response to Corona Virus and other diseases. (updated 1/18/2021)

A lot has changed since I first put this page together. We know much more about SARS-CoV-2 and recognize that the panic, paranoia and draconian government restrictions have been unnecessary and extremely destructive. The second wave of infections has not unexpected given the nature of any contagious disease and the fact that government restrictions have aggravated the situation. Our response to this particular disease, as with all diseases, is to take proper and reasonable precautions, trust God and live for His glory. This includes assisting those who may become sick or quarantined.

I am extremely disturbed by how much the major news media, social media and search engines block any contrary evidence to the politically (socialist) correct view. They claim they are following “science,” but they are not, for science is not afraid of contrary evidence. True science goes forward as all the evidence is brought to bear. Below I have been posting links to contrary evidence. I recognize some of it will be confusing because information available is incomplete and therefore is subject to continuing change (so note the dates of reports). However, the contrary evidence does prove that the data used for the models upon which government restrictions have been set were flawed from the start. If they were following science, that would be admitted and protocols would be changed accordingly.

My own back ground is biology including classes covering epidemiology and experimental design, and I am married to a public health nurse. I must be direct. The virus is not nearly as deadly as government incompetence and over reaction due to media hype. Gov. Cuomo’s directive in early 2020 putting COVID-19 positive patients into nursing facilities caring for the elderly and those already medical compromised was unconscionable. Government incompetence in New York, around our nation, and internationally about what is or is not “essential” destroyed much more than economies. That incompetence, whether well intended or malicious, is directly linked to lives lost due to drug abuse, alcoholism, depression, suicide, and postponed “elective” surgeries that would have otherwise extended life. Even worse has been the blockage in many States of the very medications that were either already known or were quickly demonstrated to alleviate COVID-19 symptoms and prevent death if administered early. They have been following modeling that was disproved by late Spring 2020. Their claims of following “science” have been blatantly false. Mainstream news reports block counter evidence to the politically correct line while hyping and faking the stories they do report. These reasons in and of themselves are enough to give serious pause to trusting these governments and media about anything related to the vaccines, and indeed, research into them raises serious medical questions as shown in this link to Public Information Regarding the Vaccines for Covid 19.

Pray for those who are being so severely impacted by all of this not only locally but around the globe where similar actions are now leading directly to starvation. Pray for those in authority that they will repent and turn to truth to end the unnecessary oppression.  The power of the Lord Jesus Christ gives hope to people in any situation, so pray that God’s people will continue to find ways to proclaim the gospel even when oppressed.

The following four sermons and two papers are helpful to regain and keep a godly perspective . Links to sermons & papers related to the virus crises: *Godly Wisdom During a Medical Threat,   *Foundations of Wisdom, *Finding Peace in a Time of Fear, *Authority & Submission  *Remaining Calm in a Time of Panic,  *Ideas Concerning being Stuck at Home due to Virus Regulations   These are our Medical Restriction protocols and ministry plans

Below are links to papers, news articles and resources concerning  the SARS-CoV-2 virus crises (COVID-19); Mask usage, government policies, and treatments.  (Note: the google search engine is politically correct and nearly worthless in research on this topic and many others. Use other internet search engines such as https://duckduckgo.com/)

Simply a slave of the Lord Jesus Christ,
Pastor Scott L. Harris

Infection RatesChicago– higher than expected.  Worldometers, world-stat.info, Dutchess County,  (Remember, many who have had the symptoms were rejected for testing  – and there is a high rate of false negative in some of the tests (another report here) Also, anyone dying for any reason will be included in the COVID-19 count if they had symptoms or tested positive, even if the death was caused by something else).

A few (early) studies related to infection rates (The higher rate of infection vs rate of illness / death, the less dangerous / lethal the disease)  (See the overview links above for current rates)
