Mask vs. No-Mask, A Spiritual Perspective

Mask vs. No-Mask, A Spiritual Perspective

What started as a simple public health recommendation to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus has morphed into a public display of the country’s partisan divide: Do we wear a mask or not? Every other day, a new report goes viral showing mask-less patrons visibly upset after being denied access or services at certain businesses that mandate their use.

Discussions of face-mask usage have included stories of “mask shaming”: people ridiculing others in public for either wearing or not wearing masks. It has also gone well beyond ridiculing others, it has gone as far as killing those who don’t share the other’s belief or stand. Killing security officers and store personnel for asking their patrons to wear a mask. Ladies and gentlemen, we’re talking about a mask, an innocuous, inanimate, piece of cloth, a partial face-covering. People have lost their lives and people have lost their freedom over a mask debate: to wear or not to wear, to be told to wear or told not to wear.

How the devil is laughing! You see, the devil has spread not only unbelief throughout the world, he is spreading his unfiltered, undiluted evil, and people are soaking it in like a sponge. They are not discerning the time. They are not discerning that the time for Christ’s return is getting nearer and nearer. But instead of giving attention to their one hell-bound soul, they give attention to foolishness such as a piece of cloth and their “right” to wear one or not.

It is no wonder that in the bible, I Corinthians 1:27 says, “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise…”

People have turned so far from God that he has confounded their so-called intellect, their “wisdom”, all while they think they are representing the smart, moral, intellectual side of the debate, whatever side that might be.

In verse 19 of the same chapter, God says, “For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.” Jesus said that in the end perilous times shall come. Ladies and gentlemen, there has never been more perilous days than the days we are living in today.

Repent of your sins today and turn back to God. Stop (sinning), Drop (unbelief), and Turn (to Jesus). Remember God and his sacrifice of his only begotten son for the forgiveness of sin. Psalms 9:17 says, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations (people) that forget God.”

The question should not be, mask vs. no-mask because that’s a foolish question. The question should be Heaven vs. Hell because that’s a serious, eternal, question.

The mask issue doesn’t need debate, it just needs common sense. Man needs God!
