Trump Cabinet Bible leader blames coronavirus on God's 'wrath'
World Net Daily ^ | 3/25/2020 | WND Staff

Posted on 03/25/2020 9:33:14 PM PDT by stars & stripes forever

A minister who has been leading a weekly Bible-study group for members of President Trump's Cabinet has posted online his belief that amid the coronavirus, America is not experiencing God's "forsaking wrath" but, rather, his "consequential wrath."

"Some leading evangelicals believe and teach that America is now experiencing God's judgment," wrote Ralph Drollinger, a former NBA player and the founder of Capitol Ministries, which provides Bible studies, evangelism and discipleship to political leaders.

"If that is the case, as a public servant who is sacrificing so much in your attempt to turn our nation around, it would stand to reason – if those evangelical leaders are correct – that you are wasting your time. Are you laboring against a foregone conclusion? I think not. But let me qualify that: I do not believe America is experiencing the forsaking wrath of God, but yes, America is experiencing the consequential wrath of God," he wrote March 21 in a preface to his Bible study on the subject.

Do the nay-sayers have any better explanation?

Ralph Drollinger isn't just a former NBA player.

He earned two NCAA championships under Coach Wooden, in 1973 and 1975, and went to four Final Fours.

Agree with him or not, he's got some legitimate hoop chops.

Pope Francis said that Gaia is angry for mankind polluting her.

I just posted this on another thread. It bears repeating:

“Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” is a sermon written by British Colonial Christian theologian Jonathan Edwards, preached to his own congregation in Northampton, Massachusetts, to unknown effect, and again on July 8, 1741 in Enfield, Connecticut.

What is Jonathan Edwards’s purpose in delivering this sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”? Source: Michael Ugulini eNotes.com

Jonathan Edwards’s purpose in delivering the sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” is to warn his congregation in particular, and presumably, by extension, his nation as a whole, that they must repent of their sinful ways and turn to God for forgiveness before it is too late - so that they can escape death by hell fire. In essence, Jonathan Edward’s is saying that the opportunity is now to embrace and accept Jesus Christ, his message, his teachings, and his sacrifice as atonement for sins. The choice must be made by those God is calling, through Jesus Christ, to either accept the call to repentance and a new life, or reject it. Rejection will result in death by hell fire. Edwards indicates that God is extending mercy by calling out to sinners - He is giving them an opportunity to accept Jesus’ sacrifice and start a new life of obedience to Christ - to become slaves of Christ - subject to his mastery over them. Edwards’ purpose with this sermon is to awaken people to the seriousness of their situation because of sin - and that Christ is their only way to true redemption and a real eternal life. Edwards is encouraging his congregation to flee,run, from the wrath that is to come upon the unrepentant and unbelieving. He trumpets the necessity of accepting Christ and his atoning death. This is indicated in the Scriptures as well in this verse: “that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,” (Philippians 2:10 - New International Version (NIV)

Sounds plausible to me.

Isn’t all sickness a result of a fallen world because of sin? It is if you hold the biblical world view, just like centuries of civilization has.

Isaiah 26:20-21
20
Go, my people, enter your rooms
and shut the doors behind you;
hide yourselves for a little while
until His wrath has passed by.
21
See, the Lord is coming out of His dwelling
to punish the people of the earth for their sins.
The earth will disclose the blood shed on it;
the earth will conceal its slain no longer.

At least Drollinger is referring to God and not the imaginary Gaia. You’d think their pope would refer to God or Jesus once in awhile.

When this is all over, I’ll predict that this plague will disproportionately affect and kill specific populations which hold the most contempt for God and His people. It was such with AIDS (and still is) and it will be with this judgement.

If you research “pestilence” and “plague” in the Bible you will find they are always from God to punish a wicked nation that has rejected Him. For the U.S. you need look no further than this:

Well, we are overdue for the Sodom and Gomorrah treatment - so this ‘flu outbreak’ should just be taken as a fairly gentle warning. We’ve earned a lot worse.

I can’t disagree with the minister.

All bad comes from sin.

I am so tired of the unending Corona Virus articles. Can we declare a one week Corona Virus Sabbatical? If we stopped talking about it we might figure out how overhyped it really is.

I was trying to remember where that was.

Thanks for posting it again.

Pretty deep and thought provoking. Very politically incorrect, seems Bible based. I need to process it more and test to Scripture. You could be very well correct. Lots of contempt for Christ who is God, and in areas hardest hit, that’s for sure. Both domestically and internationally.

Successful therapy against Covid-19 virus from New York State:

Dr. Vladimir (Zev) Zelenko

Board Certified Family Practitioner

501 Rt 208, Monroe, NY 10950

845-238-0000

March 23, 2020

To all medical professionals around the world:

My name is Dr. Zev Zelenko and I practice medicine in Monroe, NY. For the last 16 years, I have cared for approximately 75% of the adult population of Kiryas Joel, which is a very close knit community of approximately 35,000 people in which the infection spread rapidly and unchecked prior to the imposition of social distancing.

As of today my team has tested approximately 200 people from this community for Covid-19, and 65% of the results have been positive. If extrapolated to the entire community, that means more than 20,000 people are infected at the present time. Of this group, I estimate that there are 1500 patients who are in the high-risk category (i.e. >60, immunocompromised, comorbidities, etc).

Given the urgency of the situation, I developed the following treatment protocol in the pre-hospital setting and have seen only positive results:

1. Any patient with shortness of breath regardless of age is treated.

2. Any patient in the high-risk category even with just mild symptoms is treated.

3. Young, healthy and low risk patients even with symptoms are not treated (unless their circumstances change and they fall into category 1 or 2).

My out-patient treatment regimen is as follows:

1. Hydroxychloroquine 200mg twice a day for 5 days

2. Azithromycin 500mg once a day for 5 days

3. Zinc sulfate 220mg once a day for 5 days

The rationale for my treatment plan is as follows. I combined the data available from China and South Korea with the recent study published from France (sites available on request). We know that hydroxychloroquine helps Zinc enter the cell. We know that Zinc slows viral replication within the cell. Regarding the use of azithromycin, I postulate it prevents secondary bacterial infections. These three drugs are well known and usually well tolerated, hence the risk to the patient is low.

Since last Thursday, my team has treated approximately 350 patients in Kiryas Joel and another 150 patients in other areas of New York with the above regimen.

Of this group and the information provided to me by affiliated medical teams, we have had ZERO deaths, ZERO hospitalizations, and ZERO intubations. In addition, I have not heard of any negative side effects other than approximately 10% of patients with temporary nausea and diarrhea.

In sum, my urgent recommendation is to initiate treatment in the outpatient setting as soon as possible in accordance with the above. Based on my direct experience, it prevents acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), prevents the need for hospitalization and saves lives.

With much respect,

Dr. Zev Zelenko

Definitely a Spiritual Battle going on in our Country right now. One can almost imagine the angels and demons at war at every WH Briefing. We get a moment’s peace, then the MSM stirs the Evil Pot again
