“I form light and create darkness; I make well-being and create calamity; I am the LORD, who does all these things” (Isaiah 45:7). Certainly God is in total control of everything in this universe and He has allowed this coronavirus situation for His purposes.
I do believe it’s a warning to a nation that puts to death nearly 1 million children a year, has told God He’s not welcome in schools, rejects nativity scenes and crosses in public places and has allowed the religion of atheism to be imposed.
It’s a warning to a nation with a lot of churches but majority of which are lukewarm and compromise God’s Word in Genesis with man’s pagan religion of evolution and millions of years.
It’s a warning to a nation that is at war against the family and promotes sexual perversion through Drag Queens, LGBTQ movement, etc.
It’s a warning to a nation that is at war against children as they permeate their minds with wickedness through education and media.
It’s a warning to nation that views the elderly and infirmed as needing to be eliminated.
It’s a warning to a culture where politicians and others say we need to pray about this coronavirus situation but are not repentant about blatant sin that permeates the nation.
Be warned America and all Western nations–be warned world.
— Ken Ham, via Clyde Herrin: Here Are Some Things I Have Learned From Studying the Bible, April 6, 2020
I find it interesting that Ham didn’t use the KJV for his quote of Isaiah 45:7:
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.
Hmm . . . God created evil. I can see why Ham would prefer the word calamity to evil. Regardless, Isaiah 45:7 clearly teaches that God is sovereign and in control of everything. That would include, by the way. the very things Ham is complaining about. You can’t have it both ways. Either God is in control, or we are. Based on the available evidence, it is humans who are in control. So to Ham’s warnings, I say, “who cares?” Ham sounds like a droning ceiling fan on a hot, lazy August day. Of course, if God really is in control, I only say and do what God wants me to. 🙂

Yeah, there you have it, everyone has been warmed including those Christians who, unlike this properly righteous man, are not dong the god thing correctly.
I wonder if Jesus ever had concerns about properly righteous believers vs other believers?
Poor Kenny thinks his deity got its widdle fee fees hurt and made a virus to make its point instead of, you know, actually coming here and having a conversation with us. Funny that Kenny frames it as a US specific issue – that the deity is specifically mad at the US. I believe the virus was worldwide.
First some all-powerful deity communicates through “divinely inspired” writings, and allows some writings to be lost or mistranslated over time. Then it “communicates its will” through viruses that kill ministers and believers, as well as non-followers? Doesn’t sound like an all powerful, all knowing, godlike being.
Take out the “god talk,” and science is better (but not perfect!) at explaining who got sick and who died from this and other problems.
