Most doctors agree that children who catch Covid-19 rarely become seriously ill. How broadly they can spread the virusâ€”and whether they are less susceptible to infections than adultsâ€”are still contested issues among scientists. ...
The above is from the article.
But, even though these children might not get symptomatic, their grandparents will. And in some of our communities it is the grandparents that are raising their grandchildren.

Good comment brother. Statistics clearly show that women get abortions because the baby is an inconvenience. Jim adheres to black liberation theology and everything he believes is through that lens. Having universal healthcare would simply mean that women would have more access to murdering their children.
The bible says:
We should not have sex outside of marriage.
We should be fruitful and multiply.
That men are supposed to support their families.
That women are to stay at home and take care of their children.

Just in case anyone gets confused here. Watchmanremo is not our old friend Dave from Oz.
I know Christians that have been extremely persecuted. The joy they exhibited is something I will never forget. Their children were spit upon by others; the men were often transferred to other locations to work; they were often arrested and sent to special prisons; and sometimes they were actually killed.
In order to escape the above, they had to be completely obedient to their government and that went so far as to demand their sermons be government approved.
The above is obviously still happening in so many countries, like China, et al.
The Lord blesses those who are being persecuted in ways that most of us canâ€™t imagine. It separates the wheat from the tares. Does this mean I want to be persecuted or see others persecuted? Of course not.
I am a post-tribulation person, so I believe if the Lord tarries we will all experience the above and worse.
Frank, let me entreat you as to an elder brother in the faith. You know I don't show much interest in politics, but I can't help picking up a few things from time to time. Our PM has voiced that he wants to achieve 100,000 tests each day. I'm talking UK now, and the USA may be different. It is only by testing, that someone without symptoms of Covid 19 can be identified. Those with classic symptoms are already identified and are either isolating or in hospital. The danger to the country is those who carry the disease and pass it on, without realising it. I believe the same is true for STD's; women can be carriers and pass it on to men without ever knowing it. Without testing, the only way to safely carry on life, is to quarantine everyone, to ensure the virus is not passed on unwittingly. But if everyone in the country is tested, those in the clear can return to work, etc. I think that is what the PM said, or words to that effect.
My brother, pilgrim and fellow saint in the Lord. We will agree to disagree.
John UK wrote: I am John Lee, and I am a professor!
Pilgrim, I just listened to our PM and testing is a bit more complex than that, as it involves tracing contacts quickly.
I can't believe you would believe your PM over me. But, let me change my comment slightly. The "Main" purpose is to decide how to treat someone. Or in the case of you youngsters, to make you self quarantine
John UK wrote: People can pass on the coronavirus unwittingly, because they can have the virus without having any symptoms. This makes it extremely dangerous, and obviously the end result without measures in place, is that it would cause a catastrophic pandemic, never before known in the history of the world. If people can't see that, it amazes me, but I'm not going to argue with you. When you catch it, and can't breath, and die of asphixiation, asfixiation, asterixiation, fixation, no, that's not it, um, er, now then, now then, I got it, when you cease breathing, you will die, it's a certainty, yes sir. It's like when you are happily driving your car, and all is well, until suddenly, another car looms up right in front of you, and you just know that there's no avoiding an accident. A momentary lapse in concentration, and life is never the same again. And people are catching coronavirus in just the same way, they are suddenly in hospital, they are on a ventilator, they can't breath, they are dead, dead, dead.
You and I agree on this issue brother. I was thinking this morning that someone can test negative and then 5 minutes later get the virus. So the only purpose testing has is to decide how to treat someone who is sick.
Matthew 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
All politicians in the U.S. have to run for office under the premise of pluralism.
Here is what pluralism really means. If someone says that faith in Christ is essential for their individual salvation but not necessarily for someone elseâ€™s then they have logically said it wasnâ€™t essential for them, but was simply a matter of personal choice. The world has told us to think this way in all spiritual matters. So it is not uncommon for someone to apply a moral standard to their own lives, but not to the lives of others. That is moral hypocrisy of the highest order and simply deludes the lost into reducing Godâ€™s moral standards and requirements to personal choices, and if a personal choice then they canâ€™t be binding on anyone. This personal choice fallacy is one of the characteristics that separate the true church of Christ from all others. Pluralism is simply spiritual polygamy. There are lots of worthy husbands and Christ just happens to be the one I chose. But, Iâ€™ll sleep with whomever I want!
For any naysayers; how many politicians will say that all those not in Christ will suffer His wrath.
Mike wrote: Warning: sarcasm. We may need to rewrite some scripture, so as to fit it in with the new, safe Christianity. Otherwise how to reconcile culture with faith? Hebrews 10:25 could be an appropriate place to start: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, (unless the magistrate or the governor says to forsake) as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more as we see the authorities approaching.
Yes Mike, I agree with you. If anyone in society says we shouldnâ€™t worship according to our understanding of scripture, we should tell them why and then ignore them. Serving our Lord and Savior is not a negotiable concept.
Acts 5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
Romans 14:23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

One of my prayers for myself is that the Lord would give me grace to die, unafraid, unashamed and not entangled in the affairs of this world. IOW, as a Christian soldier.
Iâ€™m glad you saw my point and I just prayed that you and your loved ones will endure to the end, but at the same time I know with certainty that you will.
I have actually been amazed at the ability of the government to restrict what we do. Businesses that wanted to close where told no and businesses that wanted to open were told no. Businesses were ordered to make medical equipment and attending church was a crime and punished. And of course, this control list could go on and on.
In the end times, the antichrist will demand that everyone must have a mark and pledge allegiance to him. I have often pondered how it would be possible to control the world. This pandemic makes me understand how that could happen. Those who do not have the mark of the beast will be unable to buy and sell and will be hunted down and killed.
All it takes would be a global cause to unite the world against our heavenly Father. Most people will do anything necessary to survive.
China is in a position where it can completely ruin our economy. Therefore whatever truths these politicians note will go nowhere. Generally speaking as long as a politician says something they are deemed successful.
A communist country as we all know doesnâ€™t care about the lives of their citizens. Their leader is now a dictator, so he has nothing to lose.
The below is from the article:
â€śThe Chinese government is the worldâ€™s largest drug dealer,â€ť says Senator Tom Cotton. â€śChina has allowed fentanyl and other synthetic opioids to pour into the United States for years, killing tens of thousands of Americans.â€ť Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer agrees, saying, â€śWe must hold China, currently the worldâ€™s largest producer of illicit fentanyl, accountable for its role in the trade of this deadly drug.â€ť Their Fentanyl Sanctions Act was included in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2020.

I trust you are being extremely sarcastic Jim. Shirley you would not seriously call a pro-murder, pro-socialist politician an excellent public servant! Isaiah 5:20 says, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
If I am right, Jim grew up in a matriarchal culture. That means that women leading is something that he naturally accepts. And, the more liberal a person is the more Jim promotes them. When Hillary ran, he once said she was a paragon of virtue compared to all the other candidates. Just think about that!

Yes brother you are so correct!
On the other hand, itâ€™s also the perfect vehicle for Planned Parenthood to promote social change by utilizing its well-meaning prevention education to proselytize youth toward sexual promiscuity and abortion.
The above is from the article.
I will simply say that Planned Parenthood does nothing with â€śwell-meaningâ€ť as it goal. Yes, they do want youths to be more promiscuous because that means they make more money.
Isaiah 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
Scripture clearly teaches that God created man to lead and for women to be their helpmates. Some may find an exception to that, but there is no reason for â€śpossibleâ€ť exceptions to become the rules. If we just look at relationships as they were when the scriptures were written and for hundreds of years following that, this should become clear to us.
What this means to me is even if a woman is the smartest, wisest and most capable person in society, they should not be leaders. A governor by anyoneâ€™s standards is a leader. It is simply a matter of godly roles that have been given mankind.
Can this movement be undone? It is impossible to undo this in any society, but it still should be understood for what it is.
