I've been Tweeting about the CCP Virus and the indirect effects of the lack of solid Biblical Christianity over the past 50 years. I figure I would make an official blog post about it, since I don't have to worry character limits on my blog compared to Twitter.
Here is my assessment of why we have to deal with the CCP Virus. The indirect reason why we have to deal with the CCP Virus is because we as a Western Culture have replaced Jesus with various idols. The reason why we have replaced Jesus with various idols is because it is the lack of Biblical preaching over the past 50 years. There is a saying "So goes the Pulpit, there goes the culture." Our American / Western Culture has been on the decline for the past 50 years because of the compromises that was made to the Word of God. I can trace that compromise really clearly in the 19th century of the issue of Darwinism. The church as a whole said it was fine with believing in Jesus and Darwinism. It is fine on a Salvation issue, but the compromise is already done. If we start believing that it took eons for the earth and universe to form not 6 days but millions and billions of years then the damage is already done. The next generations will take that thought further and further. We are where we are today because of the issue of compromising on the Word of God. If the 19th century was marked by non-compromising on the Word of God instead of compromising on the Word of God, this would have made a drastic change in our society today. Instead of having to deal with the many atrocities of the 20th century like the World Wars and many other smaller wars. And instead the government were relatively peaceful (not perfect, but peaceful). We would have a much different outcome.
In terms of the past 50 years, if we had solid Biblical preaching of the Word of God in Biblically minded Churches, we might not even had to deal with the issue of the CCP Virus. If there was way more Biblically minded Churches, which in turn, pump out Biblically minded missionaries, which in turn produce more Biblically minded cultures. Which then turns more cultures a more capitalistic society. Capitalistic societies brings a much higher work ethic, depending on what actually happen in China could be an underlining work ethic issue. Or if there was a genuine mistake then the likelihood of a cover-up is way less likely because the culture of China would be a more truth oriented culture not one that is of secrecy.
In short, a society that is closer to Biblical principles the less likely bad things happen to this level. So one can logically indirectly blame the seeker sensitive Christianity and/or a less Biblical Christianity compared to a more Biblical Christianity.
Pulpits Preaching the Word of God as the Word of God which in turns
Produces Biblically sound Churches which in turns
Produces Biblically sound Cultures which in turns
Produces Biblically sound Missionaries (either direct or indirect missionaries) which in turns
Produces more capitalistic societies which in turns
Prevents major destruction of lives, such as the pandemic that the globe is dealing with.
