What does the Bible say about wearing a mask?

Mask wearing in 2020 has been quite a topic of discussion.  President-elect Joe Biden says “Wear a mask.”  Dr. Anthony Fauci says, “Wear a mask.”  Did you know that the Bible addresses the subject of mask-wearing?

You might be interested in knowing that Jesus condemned the Pharisees for wearing a mask.

Now before anyone gets all “up in the air” about what I just said, maybe you should keep on reading this article.  Please don’t go away and tell folks the preacher at Rinehart is saying something that I’m really not saying at all.

Fifteen times in the book of Matthew Jesus addresses the subject of “mask-wearing.”  He addressed it once in Mark’s gospel, and four times in Luke’s gospel.  Add all that up and you have 20 scripture references that address mask-wearing, and everyone of them is cautioning us against wearing a mask.

Did you know the word “hypocrite” in the NT means “stage-actor?”  Let me quote to you from Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Greek Words as it defines the word “hypocrite”:  “Pretender; it was a custom for Greek and Roman actors to speak in large masks with mechanical devices for augmenting the force of the voice.”  Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance defines “hypocrite” this way:  “an actor; stage-player; pretender; a dissembler.”

Jesus took this word from the Greek and Roman theater and used it in such a way that people understood perfectly what He was getting at.   A hypocrite was someone pretending to be what they were not.  They were “stage-acting” in a spiritual sense.  In the case of the Pharisees, they were portraying themselves as spiritual-minded men, when really they were not spiritual at all.   They were just putting on a show.  They sounded spiritual on the outside, and maybe they “dressed like they were spiritual,” but in reality, they were not spiritual at all. They were wearing a mask.

Jesus had strong words of condemnation for those who were hypocritical “mask-wearers.”   Check out some of these scriptures:  Matthew 6:;2,5,16; 7:5; 22:18; 23:15,23,25,27,29; 24:51; Mark 7:6; Luke 12:56; 13:15.  It appears that those who act like they’re a Christian, but really they are not, are in for a terrible awakening.

Jesus wants us to be sincere in our faith, and real.  He wants us to be true.  Don’t be that person who is a “Sunday Christian,” but has nothing to do with Him through the week.  Don’t be that person who sings praises on Sunday morning and curses your neighbor on Tuesday evening.  “My brethren, these things ought not to be this way” (James 3:10).

May we all take off the masks and be what He wants us to be.

Now the other masks that you see people wearing in 2020 to protect them from the coronavirus, feel free to wear them if you want.

  1. your twisting the words of the Bible to fit your belief. The mask they speak of in the Bible has nothing to do with a world wide pandemic and more about people hiding their true selves from others. Christians in my opinion should set the example and it is preachers that are suppose to protect their congregations from harm. This idea that we don’t need to wear a mask in service is driven by nothing more than money. Ministers are afraid that if they promote mask wearing, people won’t go to church. I say then those people need to re-evaluate their hearts because not wearing a mask during a pandemic is the least Christian like action and it tells would be new comers to Christ that the church don’t care about their well being or if they get sick and die. VERY un Jesus like in my opinion but as I’m finding out it’s not other peoples opinions that most ministers care about….it’s their budget or lack there of.

    1. Those that wear a mask show what little faith they have. If one lives in fear, then they are not living the life God intended.

      1. If you take some medicine that might impede your ability to drive safely, you are asked not to drive. Claiming that you don’t want to live in fear and driving anyway isn’t just taking a risk on yourself. You are selfishly increasing the risk for every other person on the road.

        Refusing to wear a mask that could help protect someone else if you happened to have COVID in situations where you have been asked to do so is the same thing. Now you may not care, but saying that you aren’t going to live in fear by increasing the risk to those around you is pretty silly.

        1. the science behind masks doesn’t exist still doesn’t exist. To wear it is to deny yourself of your God given immune system. To live your life thinking you’re a sick person who can possibly kill another makes you a hypocondriac. There’s no science behind asymptomatic spread being a thing.

          1. There is a ton of science behind it. The fact that you choose not to listen to it, or you are just blinded by all of the misinformation and lies floating around is a problem with so many people. I don’t care about your “freedom” to NOT wear a mask. I care about my freedom to live. It is time to suck it up and wear it in public. Get over yourself and your self-righteous “freedoms”.

        2. This page didn’t age well. Bob, you are on the money. I hope the covidiots didn’t get you sick since you posted. Mask wearing to PROTECT OTHERS is the most Christian thing you can do.

          1. You don’t trust the Lord. And you say your a Christian. If your that afraid stay in your home.
            If you want to wear your mask , do it, but do not impose your BS on anyone that doesn’t agree with you! Mind your own business!

        1. Actually if you want to go that route, everybody I know to date that has been in a severe traffic accident were told specifically if they had been wearing a seat belt at the time of the incident they wouldn’t have survived. Seat belts save a lot of people, but they also rely on specific circumstances.

          Insurance doesn’t fit this argument here. Health insurance is the only one even remotely related as it directly involves healthcare, but healthcare is not the topic of conversation so it is still an invalid point.

      2. That’s weird because I remember Jesus approves of medicinal treatments and doctors. So you really think Jesus told the sick to get better on their own and trust in God? Please do your research on what the Bible has to say about medicine and science. Thank you.

          1. and he said, “you shall do these things and more.” Who have you healed recently?? His disciples were sent to heal people, and work together, . . . .

          2. Read 2 King 20 When King Hezekiah was told to go get figs and place on his wounds and he would be healed. Bottom line – God can use whatever He wants to protect us or heal us – even spit!!

          1. aND Jesus never drove a car or a pickup.
            and Jesus never dined at a restaurant.
            Jesus never went to a job 9-5, and received a paycheck.
            Jesus never owned a property.
            He never bought a lawn mower, and mowed a huge yard. Jesus never did a lot of things you do every day, every week. And he certainly never went to church in a huge brick building which spends thousands on upkeep and salaries. He said sell it and give the money to the poor.

      3. Leviticus 13: 45-46 specifically requires facemasks to prevent the spread of plagues. It also mandates quarantines and social distancing.

        1. Thank you. I missed this comment the first time I went through these. People need to stop tempting the Lord their God and to obey the authority placed over them by God.

          1. Whose authority? Then you should become a Catholic because that is the authority placed over us by Jesus Christ himself when he made Peter the first Pope.
            You and other churches who left the church are actually disobeying Jesus by your rebellion.

        2. LOL, a poor argument for facemasks!!! Leviticus also says to wear torn clothes and have your hair unkept ! And last don’t forget if you get the “disease” you have to live apart and when you go out you must call out to everyone, “unclean, unclean”.

          45 “Anyone with such a defiling disease must wear torn clothes, let their hair be unkempt,[a] cover the lower part of their face and cry out, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’ 46 As long as they have the disease they remain unclean. They must live alone; they must live outside the camp.

          1. So what you are saying is that people should wear a mask and if they have COVID Isolate. Isn’t this exactly what all the scientists have been saying?

        3. Only the diseased are required to wear a mask so they don’t spread it. It clearly states that in Leviticus. Also they are to identify themselves as “unclean” while they have the disease. Not only that they are to isolate themselves.

      4. So you are saying wearing a mask is wrong – does that mean I can walk in the middle of a busy highway? Or not wear a seat belt? Like the poster James states – using Scripture to support your view is great – just as long as the Scripture is not taken out of context.

        1. it is not taken out of context. AND no one should be told they can’t. Just not told they must. Our very freedoms and rights to life were given to us by GOD ALmighty. And a right to life for many of us do not involve a face muzzle. Who can properly breathe with a face muzzle on. You are making yourselves sick doing it. But if that is what you want to do – God did give you free will. Just don’t push your nonsense on people that have Common sense and HIGH Christian values.

      5. A diseased person must wear torn clothes and let his hair hang loose, and he must cover his mouth and cry out, ‘Unclean, unclean!’ Leviticus 13:45

        1. And what about those who have a concealed carry license and carry a firearm? Are they not living in fear? I’m going to wear my mask and hopefully save you and me!

          1. No, we are not living in fear. Its our right. And I wear mine to protect my home, car, family, from some one that mat try to do harm. I am not afraid of anything, except the wrath of God. As far as the masks go, if they work so well in protecting from this deadly virus, why did the mask wearing lady sitting 4 chairs away from me panic when I sneezed..in the emergency room..while wearing the EXACT same mask she was….If that flimsy piece of unfilterd material will keep out that deadly virus, shouldn’t have to worry about a simple sneeze….And I wasn’t there because I was running a fever, or loss of taste,….I cut myself and needed 6 stitches….so….

      6. Wearing a mask shows how MUCH faith and trust they have in God who gives us the knowledge and tools to protect ourselves and others. Wearing a mask shows you understand what Jesus’s teachings are all about. NOT WEARING A MASK shows how selfish and self centered you are and how little you understand what Jesus is all about. Just like the story of the preacher and the flood. The preacher was standing on his roof as the flood waters were rising and along came a boat and told him to jump in. He replied, no thanks, I’m waiting for God to save me. Then along came a helicopter that lowered down a rope, but again he said no thanks I’m waiting for God to save me. So it went on. Then when the man drown and was before God, he asked God, Why didn’t you save me? And God replied, I sent you a boat and I sent you a helicopter. No one who wears a mask is living in fear, they are doing what they should to help and protect not only OTHERS, but themselves too. And getting vaccinated showing their faith in God’s provision to man of knowledge and science. Not wearing a mask and refusing to do so only screams I DON’T CARE ABOUT ANYONE BUT MYSELF and you do not understand what Jesus is all about.

        1. That is not true. Only the diseased are required to wear a mask so they don’t spread it. It clearly states that in Leviticus. The only part of your story about the man waiting for God to send him help, and the guy was to blind to see. But God has warned us about many things, mainly false teachings. If anyone can not clearly see how the Government is trying to control us, is just as blind as the story you told of the man on the roof waiting for God to save him. Since Covid I’ve been cautious but at the same time living not in fear. God has taught me many things in my life. If you really think God is OK with all the mandates and the Government and others following along trying to force us on the vaccines, which is new technology (not actual vaccines. Vaccines cure you) you are mistaking. This is the Government and World Leaders that are against God. They are evil. We are in the time of Good is Evil and Evil is Good (Isaiah 5:20). With everything that is going on in the World, I don’t understand how you can’t see it. Everything that is going on, is against the law. Even God’s laws. There is nothing selfish or unselfish on the masks. I’m pretty sure God rather me be able to breath, rather then feeling suffocated. I do comply if it’s reasonable. But getting these shots, nope, it’s all about money and it doesn’t save you from Covid.

          1. FYI, vaccines do not cure you!
            What Is a Vaccine?

            In case you haven’t guessed it already, vaccines and cures are, in fact, two very different things. “Unlike most medicines, which are often used to treat a disease or infection, vaccines are developed to prevent them,” explains Dr. Mona Kennedy, a doctor at Forward’s San Francisco location. “A vaccine is a weakened, or non-viable version of the infection that stimulates your immune system to produce antibodies, exactly like your body would begin to do if you were actually exposed to the full-strength infection in the wild. The hope is, these antibodies provide immunity to that infection and prevent you from contracting it.”

      7. Satan wants to destroy
        Gods creation. By not protecting other by masking or vaccines were spitting in gods face, and serving satan ultimate wish. Destroy man who he fell to the earth by his jealously and hate.

    2. Would Christ wear a mask? Of ye of little faith.

      It’s like wearing a seatbelt as if if it’s totally going to keep you from harm or death. You people talk from yourselves, but clearly don’t read the word which is the truth.

      1. Leviticus 13:45-46
        New International Version
        45 “Anyone with such a defiling disease must wear torn clothes, let their hair be unkempt,[a] cover the lower part of their face and cry out, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’ 46 As long as they have the disease they remain unclean. They must live alone; they must live outside the camp.

    3. Stepping aside from the virus, I think many maybe post have no idea of the correlation of donning a mask and the biblical implications. Absolutely amazing that Jesus warns Christain of this exact scenario. Wow!

      1. Dana, perhaps you might share your insight instead of playing carrot and stick. Seriously. Not everyone has insight nor do immature Chtistians know to exegete.

    4. God’s words say to have faith in him and to trust in him, his words are telling you that he brought down this pandemic to show people he is still in CHARGE and we should all turn from the wicked ways of this world, God is not HAPPY with us right now, remember if we had preacher’s that would go see the sick people would be comfort, JESUS went to heal the sick,the mask just shows us alot of people are living in the world and not for CHRIST. It plainly saids it in God’s words I will not argue over God’s words, since March of 2020 I have not changed nothing in my life, I still go out of town, I still go see my grandbabies and my daughter and guess what No Face mask, it’s called trusting God’s words and having faith in God not the WICKED World.

      1. Your position is not entirely scriptural, Johnny. You would be hard put to backup your postion.
        Remember 1Corinthian 13, descriptive of God’s Love for us.
        He sent Jesus whom we crucified.
        What we are observing is the work of the evil one, our enemy.
        My God rejoices over me in Joy…He is “Happy” with me inspite of my mistakes.

    5. Absolutely spot on. Jesus in this context is talking about the mask of identity and not the mask of protection against illness. How much worse is it that the author of this is twisting Jesus’s word to suit their rhetoric.

    6. It is about scientific data! Why was no one wearing them for the flu virus that prior to covid killed so many healthy young kids, adults AND elderly? I am a former nurse and nurse practitioner and would be mocked prior to covid when I wore one on a plane but keep in mind I would wear a N95 that had been properly fit tested for my face in order to protect others and myself in order to continue to serve the Lord and others. Do it in the name of the Glory of God and understand the science better. Do not participate in this form of oppression which the Lord condemns. My prayers are with all those led astray and distracted while our freedoms are at risk and compliance will lead to death in your unvaccinated or unmasked neighbors. See the CDC shielding process and read the Bible for your own higher understanding.

      1. Many people in the world actual do wear them during flu out breaks, and they have been recommend in the US for bad flu outbreaks. You only underline the fact we should have been wearing them during the flu like other countries.
        Leviticus 13:45-46
        New International Version
        45 “Anyone with such a defiling disease must wear torn clothes, let their hair be unkempt,[a] cover the lower part of their face and cry out, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’ 46 As long as they have the disease they remain unclean. They must live alone; they must live outside the camp.

    7. I went into.a.church this morning , I was greeted by a temperature gauge on my forehead, then my wrist .alot of people wore masks. I don’t know if it was me? I didn’t feel the spirit of the Lord there.

    8. BUT… the mask is a way to block yourself from others. It creates a barrier… like a laptop during an interview. You can only see the eyes. It sucks, and it’s still hiding yourself. I’m going to submit a religious exemption to masks at school…. or at least I’ll try to.

    9. Agreed. Mask is being used as a metaphor for presenting a false face to the world. That has nothing to do with wearing a mask to protect others from Covid-19. To quote Philippians 2: 4 “Instead of each person watching out for their own good, watch out for what is better for others.”

    1. You wear your mask for you! we didn’t ask nor need your protection my God given immune system protects me!

    2. That is propaganda, John. You are parroting. Check yourself. But if you decide to wear one do not condemn others who decide otherwise. That is called ,”virtue signaling”. Be discerning.

      1. Thank you pastor Paul you are correct. The churches of today are too much about “feel good” messages to make profits and we need a revival asap to share the true word of God!

  2. The Bible condemned masked wearing not in the sense of health issue but in the sense of hypocrisy. The Bible also tells us to remove the masks from our hearts so that we can receive the word God. Hypocrisy was one of the many areas of Christianity that our Lord Jesus addressed most during his ministry. HE called one group of people “white washed tombs, dry bones” Masked wearing was condemned because the hiding of face was away of not revealing your true feelings and hypocrisy.

  3. Kevin!! What a terrible,egocentric, dangerous, disingenuous message for people!!!!
    This is a pandemic! That is it effects the whole world. Not everyone in the world is a christian and should not follow the ways of christianity but science that knows not religion but facts to keep people safe!

  4. Mask wearing revealed many things about people:

    1)That masses of people can still be controlled, manipulated, brainwashed, and steered with propaganda.

    2) Many people have so little faith in anything and so much fear of everything that they are now vaccinated, AND they still wear their masks!

    3) These are people who likely believed every single bit of fear mongering there has been about global warming.

    4) A huge number of people also believed Al Gore in 2006 when on the Today Show he told Katie Couric New York would be under water right about now. Ref: “When co-anchor Katie Couric asked Al Gore on the May 24, 2006 Today show “What do you see happening in 15 to 20 years if nothing changes?…Even Manhattan would be in deep water”, he replied: “Yes, in fact the World Trade Center Memorial site would be underwater.”

    In my opinion, when people have spiritual faith in nothing, they end up fearing everything.

    1. Well said Daniel Doherty!

      What is the best way to control a population? Through fear! That is exactly what we are living in here. you can tell exactly who on here is glued to MSM, just from the lack of common sense answers. The best one I’ve heard was… ” I wear this mask for you” what a crock, don’t push your psychosis on me. You go ahead and wear your mask, I will go and not wear your mask. “My body my choice” Right MSM watchers? God would have made me with a mask if he wanted me to wear a mask.

      1. So, I suppose if God wanted you to drive a car he’d have made you with wheels. Or if God wanted you to hear what someone you love has to say, you’d hear it, you wouldn’t need a telephone, or if you needed clothing or food, God would provide it for you like he does the flowers of the field, or the birds of the air.
        Your argument is a joke!

    2. If I have the flu, I’ll try not to cough or sneeze on anyone. If I touch something that might have bacteria on it, I’ll wash my hands before touching my food or others food. COVID is unlikely to hurt me. I might even have it and not know it. But if I’m around someone who might be more at risk, it seems trivial to wear a mask to lower the chance I might pass on something that could hurt them.

      A older relative of mine died because they got COVID from someone like you who didn’t care if they infected someone else.

  5. Read the whole article. This has nothing to do with the pandemic or wearing a mask for health reasons. At least read the last sentence in the article.

  6. It all boils down to this. The devil is the “father of lies” the great deceiver, who do we side with? Satan darkness, evil, (science), or,
    God, light&truth. The Bible is clear that we should pray that we not be deceived in the last days, and even the elect will be deceived, I.E. televangelist preachers pushing science/vaccination over faith and healing, or, supporting science over teaching people how not to live in fear, by faith in Jesus. Choose your master. As for Me and my house we choose Jesus Christ, and God our father the great I AM, Alpha&Omega. To God be the glory.

  7. Jesus used the word ‘hypocrite’ (originally known as ‘stage actor) as a metaphor for those who would do things just to act as they do. He never meant to directly call those Greek and Roman actors hypocrite, but rather use it as a METAPHOR. The metaphorical use of ‘hypocrite’ has no correlation with mask-wearing itself, except for the origins of the word.

    Mask-wearers are not hypocrites in any way, and fundamentally, they are attempting to protect themselves and others as much as possible.

    I adore your attempt to argue against mask use with biblical verses, but at least you tried!

    1. Apparently you missed some of what the author wrote, so I will quote it for you because he did mention the origins of the word Hypocrite. Here is what he wrote, ” Did you know the word “hypocrite” in the NT means “stage-actor?” Let me quote to you from Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Greek Words as it defines the word “hypocrite”: “Pretender; it was a custom for Greek and Roman actors to speak in large masks with mechanical devices for augmenting the force of the voice.” Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance defines “hypocrite” this way: “an actor; stage-player; pretender; a dissembler.”
      Pastor Moyers also wrote this,
      “Jesus took this word from the Greek and Roman theater and used it in such a way that people understood perfectly what He was getting at. A hypocrite was someone pretending to be what they were not.”
      The last two sentences of the article refutes your accusation that he was arguing against mask use for health safety, and in fact reaffirms that his original message was in fact using masks as a metaphor for not being a hypocrite in the practicing of your Christian faith.
      Perhaps you should go back and read his article all over again.

  8. Faith level differs from people to people. Be practical in your living. If anyone can do a dust full, smelly, painting and poisionus gas work without wearing a mask as a protective gear, then they can go around without a mask during this pandemic period. God bless you all.

  9. Yeah…that really isn’t an accurate comparison, Bob.
    Matt.9:27-29. As reference.
    Each man’s faith is their own experience w/YHVH and His Word as He reveals it to the man. He is responsible for re-newing his mind with truth ie;Gods way.
    As for masks, Ecclesiastes8:1, Acts16:15. A mans face reflects hi heart proverbs27:19.
    Then CONSIDER, take into the account the principles of Law that govern this country which invests power and government by CONSENT. Each man should consider wisely his course.

  10. Pastor, I respectfully rebuke your conclusion, which is Biblically errant, and I urge you to consider a time of fasting and prayer to discern God’s will in all of this and to lead you in His ways, everlasting.

    Regarding wearing a mask for Covid 19 “protection,” the verses you quote are apt, but not complete. By wearing a mask for “protection” from Covid-19 or any other illness, we put on a facade of virtue signaling that we “care about others,” when the opposite is quite true. If we truly cared about others, we would show them our face, and God’s mercy and grace through our loving actions and interactions with them. The masks scientifically do not work to prevent the spread of viruses, and any article to the contrary is deceptive. On the contrary, they cause harm to those who are wearing them (loss of O2 content, excess CO2, plus bacterial and viral accumulation that can actually lead to the increase of disease for self and others. Perhaps most importantly, they deny human connection. So you see, there isn’t any clearer example of putting up airs, as Jesus condemns, than wearing a mask.

    “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7

    Are we not exhibiting worldly fear and care about what others will think about us (brash egotism) by wearing a mask? Should we not fear God alone and not Man? What can Man do to us? Are we not attempting to placate deluded fear in others by wearing a mask when in fact we should be doing the opposite by teaching people to love one another, as Jesus has loved us?

    God commands us, “Be not afraid,” perhaps more than any other commandment. Jesus repeated this same command repeatedly. He said to trust him with all of our heart. He commanded us to visit the sick and to bring healing; not just physical healing either, but also spiritual healing and emotional healing. This can only be done when we are exhibiting the image of God that He gave to us, which is on our whole face. Can we have true human connection when the image of God that helps connect us is covered? The clear answer is no. God designed us the way we are to interact with one another and have human connection with one another in a way that uplifts one another. A mask on the face does nothing other than elevate worldly fear and encourage the delusions caused by the great deception of our time to continue.

    Take off the mask and be encouraged by the love of God. Fear God alone. And bring the love of Jesus Christ into the lives of everyone you encounter by showing the beautiful smile that He gave you. If you are sick, stay home. If you are well, go out and spread the Gospel and baptise in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, without a mask. God will protect those who have faith in Him.

    1. Then why, pray-tell, do you wear clothing (hats, shirts, pants…)? Mostly for protection, which is practical, I assume. If it’s for fashion you may be a sinner. I hope you have never worn make-up! You speak as if wearing glasses would be a sin because it alters your facial image. When I am treating patients with Covid – I’ve worked on a Covid unit since May 2020 – I must protect myself and others by wearing a mask and other PPE. The science IS there (plus just use critical thinking) and I have successfully avoided catching or passing Covid to others. I have been with dozens of people on their death beds and have tried to comfort them as best I could as they passed. If you truly care for people they will feel it with their very being and will see your sincerity through your gaze (smile with your eyes!) and warmth. I was created with a brain and use it to protect myself and others. How can science be evil when it used by people to save lives? The answer is: Science is not evil, people can be though. It is the way we use the tools we have been blessed with wether it be our brains, braun or the love we have for each other. Go now and spread love. There is only one who will judge us all in our time so remember that and live your life using the gifts you have been given; do not blindly follow those who will mislead us, including supposed “church leaders” and “men of God” who spread mistrust and hate for the sciences. They are not Him.

    2. You are wrong like a lot pharisee conservative christians God calls us to love others which by wearing a mask we will protect those that do not know God putting others before ourself.

  11. “wear them if you want” Can you imagine Jesus saying something like this: “help the needy if you want”.

    What does scripture say:

    Romans 13:10
    Love does not harm others.

    Philippians 2:4
    Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

    Psalm 82:4 ESV
    Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

    I dont wear a mask because Im afraid. I wear it to protect others. anything else is selfish and disregard for the above scriptures God gives us.

  12. Can’t any of you see how the devil is winning through this conversation? You are all arguing against each other and hating on one another. Would you say that by arguing and bickering with one another that God is pleased? The devil is having a wonderful time with this division. Have you all forgotten the most important command by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ? Love God above all things and Love others as you love yourself. I’m only 16 years old and I can see that many of you are missing the faith. Remember brothers and sisters we are the wise builders, our house is built on the rock Jesus and the wind and rain will beat against us and we will not fall. But evidently some of you have built your house on the sand and when a plague hit your house fell and bent it’s knee. To quote John Ramirez “The Pharaoh was hit with 10 plagues and he finally bent his knee and gave the Israelites back, the Church gets hit with one plague and we’re doing Church online. The rock foundation is a foundation of Faith and Strength in Jesus Christ, and there are only 3 reasons someone would get the vaccine. 1 in fear of covid themselves. 2 in fear of giving covid to someone else. or 3 in fear of the government. All three reasons are based off of fear. And if you have fear than your house is not built on the rock, it’s built on the sand. Losing your Faith in Jesus Christ will damn you to the Lake of Fire. As Jesus said in the last days even the elect will lose their firmness. Realise that if the government can see that you’ll bow and take the vaccine, wait until they bring the Mark of the Beast, and anyone who took the vaccine without a thought will also take the Mark without a thought. I say this because I love you all and I SEE the passion for choosing what is right in Jesus Christ and I love that! But be careful who you are listening too, for many will come in His name and there will be many false prophets. Don’t lose your Faith brothers and sisters! ❤️

    1. Ironically, you are spreading fear just the same… know your words and be mindful of their intent. You cannot pick and choose what fear is bad and what fear is good. You show no love in attempting to chastise people through fear of damnation; it is such a hateful thing to do. Hypocrisy is a mask worm by many who use religion as a weapon to control those through fear. Fire and brimstone baby! Shame on those who use such hateful rhetoric as “justifications” for their faith.

  13. Bs, the Bible says to wear a mask.

    Leviticus 13:45-46
    New International Version
    45 “Anyone with such a defiling disease must wear torn clothes,(A) let their hair be unkempt,[a] cover the lower part of their face(B) and cry out, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’(C) 46 As long as they have the disease they remain unclean. They must live alone; they must live outside the camp.(D)

  14. Sigh. This conversation is disgusting. Pastor Moyers took advantage of a great oppportunity while literal mask wearing is on everyone’s minds and used it to discuss a spiritual and psychological issue.

    His article had nothing to do with whether you should wear a mask for Coivd purposes.

    He’s writing about how many of us are afraid to let others see our true selves, afraid of rejection if we let anyone see our flaws.

    I can get it–many in this town know my family was kind of weird. What most don’t know is that we have the generational cycle of abuse, that has resulted in one “black sheep” member being subject to such abuse that there has been one suicide or one suicide attempt per generation for at least four generations.

    I know all about what Kevin is saying here.

    My family has been unable to help itself precisely because of that “Mask Wearing” and maintaining a social image.

    It has caused me much hurt.

  15. Romans is clear on this “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” Nor masks or vaccines, so wear a mask and get vaccinated
