Coronavirus: Face Masks or Bandanas



https://www.billkochman.com/Blog/coronavirus-face-masks-or-bandanas/

Let me start out by saying right up front that I am not a health expert, medical professional, or anything of that nature. Just like most of you who will be reading this blog commentary, I am just a regular guy who tries to use a little bit of common sense, practicality and pragmatism as I survive the current COVID-19 pandemic. So, because I don’t have any credentials to support my position, you can either accept or reject the comments which follow, as you feel led. It is entirely up to you.

Having said that, I don’t mean to alarm anyone, but as I mentioned in a previous blog post a number of days ago, quite frankly, a number of people — myself included — were quite flabbergasted when President Donald Trump and various health officials began suggesting that regular people — meaning not the elitists — should resort to using scarves and bandanas to protect themselves from the coronavirus pathogens, instead of using more robust face masks and respirators.

Now, it seems to me that with all of the information they now have in their possession regarding SARS-CoV-2 — which is the actual virus which causes the COVID-19 disease — they know perfectly well that such clothing items are really just about useless, and provide very minimal protection against COVID-19, due to the small size of the droplets which are expelled when one coughs, sneezes or talks. And there are other factors to consider as well, which I mention in some of my other BBB Blog posts, such as in “Helpful Tips Regarding Using Face Masks and Respirators”, which you will find listed below.

In fact, I view it as being both irresponsible and deceptive for the president and others to have even suggested that we resort to using such items, because it will give people a false sense of security. In other words, they will think that they are safe because they have a scarf or a bandana wrapped around their face, and this is just not so. Aside from the fact that such items are probably too porous to stop the tiny droplets and the virus which clings to them, what also failed to be mentioned is the fact that if one does not remove such items properly, they could end up getting the virus on their fingertips, and their fingers could then wind up in their mouth, nose or eyes before they have been properly washed.

Equally mind-boggling is the fact that President Trump would make the announcement regarding the American public now being advised to use face masks, and then turn right around and in the same breath, basically contradict himself, and go against the advice of his own medical team, by repeatedly stressing that wearing a mask is voluntary, and stating that he does not intend to wear one himself. Wow! How confusing is that? What an example! He expects us to follow advice which even he is not willing to follow? What kind of confusing message is that sending? Well, at least Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx had the wisdom and the decency to tell folks that wearing a face mask or respirator is NOT a substitute for social distancing. In other words, BOTH should be implemented simultaneously for maximum protection.

While the USA got off to a slow start in its fight against the coronavirus — no, I won’t delve into that issue again — as many of my American friends will already know, millions of face masks are now being manufactured in the USA. I suspect that it is for this reason that the Trump administration is now saying that the American public should be using them. But let me reiterate again: Do NOT listen to President Trump regarding this issue. He is out of his league regarding this issue and speaking nonsense. As I mention in another blog post, the people we SHOULD be listening to right now are the health officials, doctors, nurses, scientists, etc., who have the proper backgrounds for dealing with this plague. We should NOT be taking the medical advice that comes from politicians. This fight needs to be led by the health experts who are in the know.

Before leaving behind the previous points, let me make one more important point which I believe validates my argument. Even though health professionals are using N95 and FFP3 face masks, not to mention other protective equipment including plastic shields, protective suits, shoes, gloves, etc., as you probably already know, some of them are STILL becoming infected, and even dying. Now, tell me something. In light of that troubling fact, how can we the public possibly expect or believe that a scarf or bandana loosely wrapped around our face is really going to protect us from this deadly pathogen which is very aggressive, and which spreads so quickly? Are our leaders taking us for fools? Apparently so. Have I made my point?

Having stated all of the above, I do understand that at this late date, some of my readers may be in a situation where they do not have any face masks. If that is the case, and if scarves and bandanas are all you have available, well then, as they say, you have simply got to make do with what you’ve got. But let me say this: Everyone who is reading this BBB Blog post has a computer, tablet or cellphone, right? So my recommendation is that you go to Amazon, or to some other reputable website, and immediately order yourself some N95 or FFP3 respirators. As I have mentioned before, N95 is an American rating which means that a face mask offers 95% protection from certain airborne particles, including the coronavirus. On the other hand, I believe that FFP3 is a class that is used by European nations. FFP3 face masks offer up to 99% protection from such airborne particles.

Now please understand that it won’t be easy. Many sellers will already be out of stock, and you will probably have to search for a while before you find one which not only still has masks, but who is willing to ship them to your region of the world. Additionally, and sad to say, you may encounter unscrupulous online sellers who charge an arm and a leg for the masks. So please be very careful, and keep searching until you find some. In my case, a brother-in-the-Lord ordered a 5-pack of FFP3 respirators for me in March. They arrived from Israel on March 18th. It was $170.00 for the five-pack. Yes, rather expensive, right? But I am told that Israel makes very good products.

I think it is also important to advise you to NOT purchase face masks — or anything else for that matter — from any sellers you see on Facebook. If there is one thing you need to know, it is that scammers are out in full force right now because of this pandemic. These people will profit from your fear if you let them. In some cases, you will either never receive your purchased product, or else you will receive an inferior product which does not match what was advertised. Many of these bogus sellers disappear overnight. My friends, I speak from experience. As I mention in my BBB Blog post called “Beware of the Vector Robot Scam”, I was scammed by a Facebook seller a number of months ago.

This leads me to my next point. Thankfully, I was able to recover my money from the Vector Robot scam, and I will now tell you why I was able to do this. If you have to purchase your face masks from a seller other than Amazon or some other reputable website, then try to find one that accepts PayPal. That way, you are protected, and PayPal will reimburse you if something goes wrong. If your item does not arrive within a specified amount of time, or never arrives at all, or arrives damaged, or does not meet your specifications, or if you sense that something else is not right regarding the seller, PayPal will investigate once you submit a claim. They will give the seller a specified amount of time to respond to the claim, and then they will reimburse you if the issue is not satisfactorily resolved. As I said, that is exactly what happened to me with my Vector Robot purchase.

But returning to the face masks, sadly, the one drawback with many of these masks is that they are not reusable. That is in fact why health professionals require so many of them. Once they become damp, and permeated with particles, it is time to discard them. From what I have read, this usually means in a matter of a few hours. Now, while this is just my personal opinion, in a tight situation, it may be possible to sterilize a used mask by setting it out in the Sun for a while; or by soaking it in a light bleach-water solution; and maybe even by microwaving it for a very brief amount of time. If you try the latter, please be very careful, particularly if the mask contains elastic. As a matter of record, when I saw my personal physician in March, he informed me that he tried the microwave solution, and his mask ended up catching on fire. I have no idea how long he microwaved it for.

Before concluding this commentary, let me say the following: In my opinion, we ALL have the right to full protection against COVID-19, regardless of our social status, and regardless of whether or not we are health professionals. Yes, I fully understand that health professionals should take priority. After all, they are our front line soldiers in this battle against SARS-CoV-2. Furthermore, I highly respect them, and I appreciate the great sacrifice which they are all making, even placing their own lives at risk, for the benefit of us all. And for the record, both my daughter and son-in-law work in medical facilities, which have become ground zero all around the world at this present time.

Yet, at the same time, as I have mentioned before, I also believe — as the Holy Scriptures teach us — that it is a national government’s responsibility to take proper care of its people; particularly its elderly, sick, poor and disadvantaged. When ancient Israel failed to do this, God rebuked them time and time again, as I point out in some of my articles, such as “What About the Poor?”. In this case, it means manufacturing enough high-quality face masks so that every single citizen is adequately protected against this viral threat. If, for example, the American government can spend trillions of dollars on its war machine, and billions of dollars on supporting foreign governments, surely it can take care of its own people, who should come first. As the Apostle Paul wrote:

“But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.”
1 Timothy 5:8, KJV

Finally, and most important of all, whatever you do, do not allow fear to overcome you. Continue to TRUST the Lord to see you through this current scourge, and He will. Don’t allow the fear-mongers and conspiracy theorists to rob you of the Lord’s peace. Cling to Scriptural promises such as the following:

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

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
Isaiah 26:3, KJV

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
Isaiah 41:10, KJV

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
John 14:27, KJV

Coronavirus: How to Respond to the Pandemic



https://www.billkochman.com/Blog/coronavirus-how to respond to the pandemic/

For those of you who may be interested, following is my current position regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, and how I believe we should respond to it as Christians:

It goes without saying that you should trust God for your protection and not fear or worry, despite how much you may be tempted to do so. Considering how much fear-mongering is going on right now — particularly all across the Internet — isolating yourself from that fear may be a little difficult at times. However, by God’s Grace, you will make it through the current trial. One thing which will obviously help you is to dwell in God’s Word. Read it daily, as your time permits. Many of my readers will be familiar with verses such as the following ones. You will find similar verses in the “Fear and Peace” KJV Bible Verse List which is listed at the end of this commentary:

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
Isaiah 26:3, KJV

“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
1 Corinthians 10:13, KJV

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

While we most definitely need to trust in the Lord for our well-being and protection, yet at the same time, we also need to be practical, and we need to use a little common sense and exercise wisdom as well. For example, make sure that you are following the government’s guidelines regarding social distancing and other recommended safety practices which have often been repeated in your country’s announcements and press releases.

Aside from washing your hands for twenty seconds with a good hand soap frequently, among other recommended practices, this also means making sure that you wear a high quality respirator — or face mask — such as an N95 or an FFP3, if you must go outside for some reason and venture into your town or city. This is particularly true if you are sick, elderly or have any other underlying medical condition(s) which makes you more vulnerable to the coronavirus, or COVID-19. Please note that I said only if you must go out. Don’t venture out for something frivolous which can wait until later.

Whatever you do, please don’t tempt the Lord as some foolish Christians appear to be doing at this present time. I can’t believe some of the defiant attitudes which some of them are displaying right now. Some of these people are even refusing to wear face masks, and have publicly stated that they will defy any curfews or lockdowns which are imposed in their area. Even the Scriptures inform us that we should prepare ourselves and protect ourselves when we are aware of a coming calamity. Consider the following verse:

“A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.”
Proverbs 22:3, KJV

Do you see that? If you are so foolish that you refuse to prepare, then you have no one to blame but yourself if you suffer when the calamity strikes. Please remember that while God indeed protected the Israelites during the plague of death in the land of Egypt, they were still required to do THEIR part as well by placing the lamb’s blood on their door posts and lintels, and then remaining inside their homes until the Angel of Death had passed. So, you see, they had to have faith and trust that God would spare them that night, but they also had to make physical preparations as well.

As many Christians already know, we are supposed to obey the higher powers — or government authorities — as long as they don’t contradict God’s Word. After all, the Scriptures plainly inform us that it is God who places them in that position of authority for whatever His reasons and purposes. So please don’t defy whatever pandemic-related guidelines have been put into place in your area by the authorities. As the Apostle Peter wrote in his first Epistle:

“Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.”
1 Peter 2:13-17, KJV

You will find additional Bible verses related to this topic in the “Obey the Powers That Be” KJV Bible Verse List which is listed below. So remember; the pandemic guidelines they put in place are meant to protect you, and the ones you love. So don’t be selfish or foolish! Follow the guidelines, remain inside when ordered to do so, and wear a face mask when necessary. The truth of the matter is that getting someone else sick because of your negligence or defiance in following the guidelines is NOT demonstrating Christian love, is it? Exactly.

Following are four KJV Bible Verse Lists which support what I have just stated. By clicking on the links, you will be taken to the actual verse lists in the “KJV Bible Verse Lists” section of the Bill’s Bible Basics website. You will find over 620 additional topical Bible verse lists there as well:

What Do You Think of the Above Post?

The Doctor Anthony Fauci Debate: My View



https://www.billkochman.com/Blog/the-doctor-anthony-fauci-debate-my-view/

According to what I have read online from a few different sources, not too long ago, a concerted campaign was initiated by certain sectors of the Conservative side of the political isle against Dr. Anthony Fauci, who heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and who is likewise a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. This campaign began due to a particular email which Dr. Fauci sent about seven years ago in which he complimented Hillary Clinton. Upon learning about this email, certain conservatives interpreted Dr. Fauci’s praise for Hillary Clinton as a sign that he is a snake in the grass, and is not truly loyal to President Trump. Since then, this negative campaign has snowballed, thanks to the rapidity with which things — whether true or false — propagate on the Internet.

Now, while like most people I have a certain level of distrust towards the American government — as we all should, regardless of which party is in control — at the same time, after watching a number of the White House press conferences in which Dr. Fauci spoke, as well as a few other online interviews with Dr. Fauci, I am left with a very different impression regarding the man, than what some of my Christian brethren have been expressing as of late. While some of my online friends may disagree with my position, to me, Dr. Fauci comes across as being an honest, forthright, matter-of-fact, no-nonsense type of guy when it comes to his areas of expertise, which obviously are NOT Donald Trump’s areas of expertise by a long shot.

From watching him speak, and seeing how he carries himself, and expresses himself and his views with a clear passion, I am left with the impression that Dr. Fauci is only interested in the scientific and medical facts, and that he is fully engaged in, concentrated on, and dedicated to bringing the pandemic in the United States to a halt as quickly as possible. I do not believe that he has any nefarious motivations or secret political agenda — such as a supposed desire to purposely embarrass or bring down President Trump — in any of his current actions, as is purported by those people who have been attacking Dr. Fauci’s character from the shadows.

In contrast, if we are honest with ourselves, and are willing to set aside our personal political affiliations and our religious views, we also have to be willing to admit that while the president has the same primary goal as Dr. Fauci in wanting to bring the pandemic to an end, nevertheless, he is also affected by — and in fact hampered by, in my view — other things. This includes maintaining a high rating in the polls as the November election draws near; quelling panic and maintaining as much peace in the country as he possibly can by being a positive beacon of hope; and protecting the economy and Big Business interests. President Trump is also hampered by his own vanity in always wanting to be right, and wanting to be the center of attention.

Because of the aforementioned factors, my suspicion is that Dr. Fauci may be purposely being kept in check by the Trump administration, and is only being allowed to say so much in front of the cameras, regarding the severity of the current coronavirus pandemic. To reiterate, they don’t want him spooking the American public any more than they are already spooked, and much less Big Business which is already in a tailspin.

Look; the man is said to be an expert in his field who has earned the respect of many people in a variety of related fields. The simple fact is that due to his long background in immunology and his well-known battles against viral diseases such as HIV, SARS, the 2009 swine flu pandemic, MERS, and Ebola, Dr. Fauci understands the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic situation a lot better than many other people. He has seen the models. He knows the real numbers. In short, he knows how much worse this can and probably will get, if more stringent measures are not adopted very soon. In fact, we are already getting a glimpse of the future of other American cities, just by looking at New York City where many people have already died from the COVID-19 disease.

So as I said, that is why I sense that his comments may be being tamped down by the Trump administration. To say it again, if the whole truth were told to the American public, the economy would tank even more than it already has, and people would freak out more than they already have. But make no mistake. Dr. Fauci has tried to convey the seriousness of the current situation in a number of his discussions. Time and time again he has stressed the importance of adhering to the government-issued pandemic guidelines, and he has warned us of what will happen if we don’t. Consider his dilemma. There is a fine line between telling the whole truth, and being compelled to hold back certain unsavory information which could lead to more panic and other negative consequences.

Let me conclude this blog post by saying the following. Personally, it is my view that if President Trump makes a factual error regarding the pandemic; or if he contradicts scientific or medical opinion regarding the pandemic; then I feel that Dr. Fauci has the right, as well as the obligation, to set the record straight; even if it contradicts President Trump, or embarrasses President Trump, or makes him look like a fool, or wounds the president’s pride and vanity. If the truth be told, it is my opinion that right now we need to be listening more carefully to what is being said by individuals who are in the scientific, medical and health fields, and less to biased politicians whose goal is to gain points with their constituents, or with their party, or who simply want to stroke their own ego.

To reiterate one more time, I know nothing about the personal life of Dr. Anthony Fauci. I don’t know what political party he belongs to. I don’t know if he is a man of faith, and if he is, what religion he may belong to. I don’t know his views regarding abortion or any of the other hot-button issues which are important to Christians. My current opinion of him is based solely on how I see him responding to the current coronavirus pandemic. He is serious, he means business, he wants to see it end, and that is enough for me.

For those of you who may have possibly missed some of my previous coronavirus-related writings, following is a list of everything I have written to date regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. I believe that you will find a lot of useful, factual, instructive and Scriptural information in this material. Please feel free to share this list on your own timelines, pages, in your Facebook groups, and on any other social networks where you happen to participate. Thank you so very much, and God bless you!

Coronavirus: More Useful Information



https://www.billkochman.com/Blog/coronavirus-more-useful-information/

Dear friends, I found the following information on a Facebook friend’s timeline. In fact, I think this person may have likewise copied it from the timeline of one of their own friends. According to my friend’s personal comment on their timeline, this information is attributed to an unnamed Swiss chemist. I know neither who they are, where they work, or what their professional credentials are.

Personally, I learned a few things from this information. For example, I was totally unaware of the fact that viruses are NOT living organisms. Or more correctly stated, there is divided scientific/medical opinion regarding their nature. Some people view them as being in a somewhat gray area between living and nonliving. I was also previously not aware of the actual structure of a virus, or how and why certain agents can destroy them. Anyway, I found this information useful and interesting, to say the least.

DISCLAIMER: As I did in another post here on the BBB Blog, let me state that while the information below sounds solid, please understand that being as I am NOT a medical doctor or a health official of any kind, and therefore have no background in virology, I cannot guarantee that this information is completely accurate in every regard. As such, you accept it, believe it, and act upon it, at your own risk.

• a virus is not a living organism, but only a molecule of protein (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipids (fats), that upon being absorbed by ocular, nasal and mouth mucosa cells changes the genetic code of the cells and converts them into aggressor and multiplier cells.

• Since the virus is not a living organism but rather a molecule of protein, it doesn’t die but rather disintegrates on its own. The length of time it takes to disintegrate depends on temperature, humidity and the type of material where is sits.

• The virus is very fragile, the only thing that protects it is a thin external layer of fat. That’s why any soap or detergent is the best remedy because suds break down grease/fats (that’s why you have to suds up for 20 seconds or more in order to make a lot of suds). Once the layer of fat is dissolved, the molecule of protein falls apart and disintegrates on its own.

• HEAT melts grease, that is why it is best to use water that is at least 25 degrees centigrade (you can do your math here or just use pretty warm water) to wash your hands, clothes, etc. Besides, hot water makes more suds and that is good.

• Alcohol or any mixture of alcohol at more than 65% will dissolve any grease/fats, especially the outer fat layer of the virus.

• Any mixture of 1 part clorox and 5 parts water dissolve directly the protein, which kills it from the inside.

• Oxidized water can be used besides soap, alcohol, and clorox because peroxide dissolves the protein of the virus, but you have to use it alone and it damages the skin.

• NO BACTERIACIDE WORKS. Since the virus is not a living organism, you can’t kill anything that is not alive with antibiotics, except to rapidly disintegrate its structure with everything mentioned above.

• NEVER shake clothes you have worn (or not worn) nor sheets or anything made of cloth. As long as it is stuck to a porous surface, it is inert and will disintegrate in 3 hours (cloth and porous surfaces) 4 hours (copper which is naturally antiseptic and wood because it pulls away all of the humidity and it stays stuck and disintegrates), 24 hours (cardboard), 42 hours (metal) and 72 hours (plastic). Don’t dust or use a duster as the molecules of the virus will float in the air for up to 3 hours and can lodge in the nose.

• The molecules of the virus are very stable in outdoor cold, air conditioning in houses and cars. It needs humidity to be stable and also darkness. Therefore, in environments that are dehumidified, dry, and with a lot of light will disintegrate it more rapidly.

• ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT on any object where it can land will disintegrate the protein of the virus. For example, it is perfect to disinfect and be able to reuse a mask. Careful as it also disintegrates the protein in the skin (collagen) and can cause big wrinkles and skin cancer.

• No virus can go through healthy skin.

• Vinegar does not work because it doesn’t dissolve the protective layer of grease.

• NO FIREWATER OR VODKA work. The strongest vodka is 40% alcohol and you need at least 65%.

• LISTERINE DOES WORK! It is 65% alcohol.

• The more confined space the virus is in, the more concentrated it becomes. Open air and natural ventilation are the best.

• It is imperative to wash your hands before and after touching mucous areas, food, knobs, light switches, remote controls, cell phones, watches, computers, desks, TVs etc. And when after using the toilet.

• You need to use lotion on your dry hands, because the molecules can hide in tiny cracks. The thicker the cream, the better. Also keep your fingernails short! so the virus can’t hide in there either.

For those of you who may have possibly missed some of my previous coronavirus-related writings, following is a list of everything I have written to date regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. I believe that you will find a lot of useful, factual, instructive and Scriptural information in this material. Please feel free to share this list on your own timelines, pages, in your Facebook groups, and on any other social networks where you happen to participate.

Coronavirus: Where is Your Common Sense?



https://www.billkochman.com/Blog/coronavirus-where-is-your-common-sense/

Yes, folks, here I go again. I don’t know what is going on, but this pandemic is really affecting some of my Christian brethren in a very strange way. I have seen so many posts and comments in my news feed, and on different Facebook pages in recent weeks, where instead of pointing their readers and visitors to God’s Word to find the answers, some of these brethren — quite a few of them, in fact — are spouting off nonsensical conspiracy theories regarding 5G, Bill Gates, George Soros, the NWO and the Globalists, Agenda 21 and global depopulation, and other ridiculous stuff for which they can offer absolutely no solid proof. Of course, in their foolishness and delusion, they consider YouTube videos and information that they find on questionable conspiracy theory websites to be valid proof. SMH.

If that is not enough, they are instilling fear in people with talk of martial law coming any day now, forced vaccinations with a microchip secretly embedded in it, and other fringe ideas. I find it all quite ridiculous, and sad. After all, aren’t we supposed to be promoting God’s Word? Isn’t that why God called us into His Kingdom? That is, to be His emissaries? Isn’t the Good News supposed to be found in God’s Word? So why then are all of these misguided brethren delving into all of this worldly conspiracy theory nonsense? Is that going to win anyone to Jesus Christ? I seriously doubt it. It will just trap more people in the conspiracy theory net. As I said, it just fills people with fear and paranoia and deceives them.

If you are wondering what set me off this time, well, I just saw a post in my news feed where a particular Christian friend — who I have considered to be a bit strange and “out there” for a while now — was berating other Christians simply because they are wearing face masks when they go out in public. According to this misguided individual, those of us who wear face masks don’t truly believe in Jesus, because if we did, we would trust Him to protect us by not wearing face masks. At least that is what this person claims.

To make matters worse, this same person twists the meaning of Roman 12:2, and claims that by wearing face masks, we are conforming to the world, and are full of fear. My gosh. Anyone with even an ounce of understanding and Spiritual Discernment knows that that is NOT what Romans 12:2 is talking about in the least. For those of you who are not familiar with the verse, here it is:

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
Romans 12:2, KJV

If you really want to know what that verse means, then please consider studying the following four KJV Bible Verse Lists on the Bill’s Bible Basics website. Trust me when I say that the true meaning of Romans 12:2 will become very clear to you:

“Battle of the Mind” KJV Bible Verse List:

https://www.billkochman.com/VerseLists/verse217.html

“Washed and Renewed Mind” KJV Bible Verse List:

https://www.billkochman.com/VerseLists/verse071.html

“Old Man Versus New Man” KJV Bible Verse List:

https://www.billkochman.com/VerseLists/verse165.html

“Worldliness” KJV Bible Verse List:

https://www.billkochman.com/VerseLists/verse078.html

This same person also made a slight reference to Psalm 91, and mentioned how if we drink poison, God will protect us. They also mentioned twice in their comments how if Jesus were here today, He would most certainly not be wearing a face mask. Well, yeah. I mean, after all, He IS the Son of God. In other words, in this person’s mind, we should have the same level of faith as Jesus Christ. Yes, that would be nice. But quite frankly, I don’t have that degree of faith. Do you? Can you move mountains or raise people from the dead? Can you even perform a simple miracle of healing? I can’t. So, no, I don’t have faith like Jesus, and I am not afraid to admit it. So I will wear a face mask.

I must tell you; I was floored by what I read. This person was basically condemning other Christians who don’t have the same degree of faith as they supposedly have. I just couldn’t believe that someone would be advising other Christians to not wear face masks when they go out. In recent weeks I have likewise seen multiple comments where different Christians on Facebook have openly stated that they will defy any curfews, lockdowns and other government-issued guidelines. What is wrong with these people?

Well, I knew ahead of time exactly how this person would react, because I have dealt with such people before regarding this pandemic. Sadly, some of them have removed my comments, or unfriended me, or even blocked me completely, when I have tried to set them straight regarding their misguided ideas. At any rate, despite knowing this, I still felt compelled to try to get through to this person. So, I left them the following comment:

—– Begin Quote —–

I’ll tell you what. Why don’t you drink a bottle of bleach and let me know what happens. I’ll be waiting. Seriously. You know full well that you are not going to drink a bottle of bleach, because not only do you not really have the faith for it, but you know that it will kill you.

Not conforming to the world does NOT mean not wearing a respirator when people are getting infected by the hundreds of thousands around the world by the coronavirus, and dozens of thousands are dying from it as well. If you don’t care about your own life, then please at least think of the others you might infect if you yourself become infected unknowingly. So be smart and wear a mask! That’s called loving your neighbor as yourself, and preferring others. If they get sick because of you, is that love?

You say we don’t truly believe in Jesus because we follow the government’s guidelines and take safety precautions? That is just a ridiculous comment to make. What you are telling people is both foolish, stupid and dangerous. Furthermore, the Bible says to NOT tempt the Lord. That is another reason why you should not drink that bottle of bleach. It is also why you should wear a face mask if you have to go out in a heavily infected area.

I just can’t believe all of the foolish, stupid, dangerous, crazy things some of my brethren are saying, as a result of this pandemic. Where is your common sense, people?

—– End Quote —–

Upon reading my comment, this person said that they were sorry that I was walking in fear — which is the furthest thing from the truth — and then they rambled on again about Jesus not wearing a mask, and something about people who fear will “enter fire and brimstone in the second death.” Then there was something about “So-called Believers walking around with diapers” and “Christians walking around in diapers.” I still have no idea what this person was referring to. Perhaps spiritual immaturity. I am not really certain. To be honest, their comments are rather disjointed, and they don’t connect all of their thoughts very well. They concluded by telling me to stop saying that God’s Word will not keep them safe, which I never ever said even once. In response, I then told this person the following:

—– Begin Quote —–

I am NOT in fear in the least. However, I DO know how to exercise wisdom and caution, while you obviously do not. Worse yet, you are leading others down your suicidal path with your nonsensical talk. Yes, we need to trust in the Lord, but we also need to give Him some COOPERATION, and exercise a little COMMON SENSE. Let me leave you with a verse for your consideration. It in fact talks about protecting ourselves from harm, lest we suffer the consequences for our foolishness and lack of action:

“A prudent ‭man‭ foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.”
Proverbs 22:3, KJV

—– End Quote —–

As I said earlier, this is not the only person who is making outlandish comments during this pandemic which are potentially harmful and dangerous to others. The following day, another person came along and added their two cents to the discussion. Here is how they responded to the aforementioned person, and then to me as well. To protect the privacy of the original poster mentioned above, I have replaced their name:

—– Begin Quote —–

You need to stay in center of road on this. Christians who are carnal and not filled to overflowing with Holy Spirit need to protect themselves with masks. Christians filled with the Holy Spirit don’t need masks . . . Would Jesus need to wear a mask? Would Peter and Paul need one? . . . [This person] is partially right and partially wrong. They assume all Christians are walking in that high place in God and filled to overflowing with God’s Spirit. Only a small remnant walk in that power and anointing which Peter walked in where even his shadow brought healing to people who came near. However, [they] should not tell average carnal Christians not to protect themselves against Covid-19.”

—– End Quote —–

Can you believe it? So according to this person, any Christian who gets the coronavirus must be a carnal Christian who lacks faith. Well, sorry, but personally, I am no Jesus, Peter or Paul. Are you?

So friends, that is just another example of the nonsense I have seen coming from my Christian brethren since this whole COVID-19 pandemic began. I am tired of seeing all of this conspiracy theory talk coming from my brethren. I am tired of seeing all of the defiance they are exhibiting. And I am also tired of the bad advice they are giving to others. Sadly, short of snoozing their comments, or unfriending them, there isn’t much else that I can to in order to stop seeing their ridiculous posts in my news feed.

For those of you who may have possibly missed some of my previous coronavirus-related writings, following is a list of everything I have written to date regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. I believe that you will find a lot of useful, factual, instructive and Scriptural information in this material. Please feel free to share this list on your own timelines, pages, in your Facebook groups, and on any other social networks where you happen to participate. Thank you so very much, and God bless you!

Coronavirus: 40 Bible Verse Lists Regarding God’s Love, Patience, Wrath, Judgments and Repentance



https://www.billkochman.com/Blog/coronavirus-40-bible-verse-lists-regarding-gods-love-patience-wrath-judgments-and-repentance/

As the world endures the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many people — including many Christians — are looking to YouTube videos, unsubstantiated conspiracy theories and other question sources, in order to understand and explain what is going on, as well as why it is occurring. In my view, many of these things are red herrings and sideshows which distract us from the one true source which actually explains to us what is going on in the world right now. Of course, I am referring to the Bible. But because they look to these other secular sources to understand and explain things, some people are not only missing the Big Picture, they are also emphasizing the wrong things when they discuss this issue with their friends.

The fact of the matter is that as Bible-believing Christians who know the Lord, we have a duty, an obligation and a responsibility to look to God’s Word for the answers, and not to the wisdom of the world, which can quite often be rather deceiving. While many people today — again, including many Christians — like to emphasize a God of love and a lovey-dovey Jesus, as I explain in articles such as “Do You Want Love and Light, or Rod and Wrath?“, the Holy Scriptures inform us that our Heavenly Father is both a God of Love, as well as a God of Wrath. Likewise, Jesus can bleat like a Lamb, or else He can roar like a Lion. Exactly which side we each see of their character depends a lot on us.

One mistake which I have repeatedly seen some Christians make, is to use verses such as John 10:10 to justify and convey the one-sided image of God the Father and Jesus which I just mentioned to you. In that verse, Jesus states the following:

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have ‭it‭ more abundantly.”
John 10:10, KJV

Personally, I wholeheartedly agree with the above verse. In fact, I am quite familiar with it, as well as with a number of other related verses, which you will find in the “God’s Desire for Healing and Repentance” KJV Bible Verse List which is listed below. But as I said, we need to look at the entire equation. In other words, we can’t just look at those verses which create an image of God the Father and Jesus Christ which we like, which is pleasing to us, and which we can easily accept. We need to examine ALL of the related verses.

As I have said so many times before, we need to compare and balance Scripture with Scripture, in order to better understand whatever subject we happen to be researching in the Bible. If we fail to do this, then we may end up with a lopsided understanding of the issue. Worse yet, we may erroneously convey that lopsided understanding to others as well.

This very same rule applies to understanding the full nature of God the Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ. When we do compare Scripture with Scripture, we get a very different picture. We get a more balanced picture. For example, while in Matthew 18:11 Jesus said “For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost”, and in Luke 9:56 He also said “For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them”, at the same time, the Lord also clearly said such things as the following in the Gospels:

“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Matthew 10:28, KJV

“And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: ‭‭Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”
Mark 9:45-46, KJV

“I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
Luke 13:2, KJV

“Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: SIN NO MORE, LEST A WORSE THING COME UNTO THEE.”
John 5:14, KJV

And let us not forget that this is the same Jesus who overturned the tables of the moneychangers in the temple compound, and who repeatedly referred to the unbelieving Jews as liars, hypocrites, oppressors of the poor, murderers, and the children of the Devil. So, do you see my point?

To continue, as I mentioned earlier, if we truly want to understand what the COVID-19 pandemic is all about, and why it has wrecked the global economy, and pretty much brought the entire world to a standstill, then we must look to God’s Word, and not to the fallible words or wisdom of mere men. With that in mind, below you will find a list of 40 of the current 625 topical KJV Bible Verse Lists which I have compiled to date. If you invest some serious time in really studying each one of them, it is my hope that you will arrive at a much better, clearer understanding regarding why the coronavirus has struck the world at this current time. May God bless you and enlighten you as you delve deeply into His wonderful Word.

Coronavirus: Wake Up, Already!



https://www.billkochman.com/Blog/coronavirus-wake-up-already/

This message is directed to anyone who has nothing better to do than to complain about the current situation regarding the pandemic, and to use the pandemic as a vehicle to propagate fear and baseless conspiracies, and to criticize the government. I was motivated to write this commentary after reading a post on a certain person’s Facebook timeline where they complained about how negatively affected some businesses have been due to the quarantines, shutdowns and social distancing which is currently in effect in countries all around the world. It might interest you to know that after reading my response — which is all that you read below — and after making a few false accusations against me, unbelievably, this person then said “this is not a pandemic. Not even close and doesn’t even fit the definition.” Wow! Can you believe that someone is still that deceived after everything that is going on around the world with this virus right now? SMH. At any rate, if you agree with what I have stated here, please feel free to share this post on whatever social networks you happen to participate in. By doing so, maybe it will help to wake up other people who have fallen under such deception, and who likewise believe that the pandemic is not real. I wrote to this person as follows:

—– Begin Quote —–

“If you honestly cant understand the medical and health reasons behind the current social distancing, shutdowns and quarantines, then you obviously haven’t been paying attention to what has been said by those who are in a position to know. Either that, or you have been so taken in by conspiracy theories, that you have lost touch with reality.

Let me tell you about my reality, okay?

My daughter, son-in -law and little granddaughter are currently in quarantine until early next month.

Why?

Because my son-in-law works at the Naval Hospital, which is one of the ground zeros here. My son-in-law was unknowingly exposed to a work companion who later tested positive for COVID-19. This person passed the virus to my son-in-law, who has displayed symptoms for the past three days, including fever and sore throat.

It gets worse. My daughter is very high risk, because she is a Type 1 diabetic. If she gets it, it will be even worse, even life-threatening because her immune system is already compromised.

My little granddaughter also developed a fever a few days ago, but appears to be okay thus far.

They are all stuck together in their apartment with nowhere to go due to doctors orders. The virus is probably all over that place by now.

Five days ago before he realized that he was infected, my son-in-law paid me a brief visit to deliver something to me. So now I have to wait another ten days to see if I develop any symptoms. On top of that, I have been fighting a chest cough for the past four weeks.

And BTW, due to my age and underlying health issues such as developing Deep Vein Thrombosis and Acute Bilateral Pulmonary Emboli, for which I am now on anticoagulant for life I am also high risk.

That is my reality. So before you complain about what the government has been forced to do for your OWN protection, and display your ignorance, please stop and think before you speak!

A lot of people are facing financial hardship right now, as well as medical tragedies, stress and a host of other issues. We are all in this together, and dealing with it the best we each can. It is a sacrifice for everyone in some way. Furthermore, health and medical professionals, and many others, are putting their lives on the line for us, spending long hours away from their families. Everyone is hurting, and everyone is suffering, or afraid and wondering how much worse it will get. And most assuredly, we haven’t seen the worst of it yet.

The real heroes are those who take all of this in without complaining, and without criticizing the very government and individuals who are doing the best they can to bring this pandemic to an end as quickly as possible. It is sad to see that like some others, you have politicized this global tragedy, and used it as a vehicle to criticize the government.

No government is perfect. They all make mistakes. And, yes, President Trump is far from perfect. At times he even makes a fool out of himself, and displays his vanity. But I am sure that he and the team who are working with him are doing the best they can, given the current circumstances. So why don’t you be a little more understanding and give them a break?

Thanks!”

—– End Quote —–

In conclusion, my friends, I believe that it is extremely important, and in fact that we have an obligation, to our friends, and to anyone else who may read our posts, to make certain that we are disseminating accurate and factual information regarding the current coronavirus — COVID-19 — pandemic.

If you are one who has taken the time to read my original three-part series “Coronavirus: Just the Facts, Ma’am”, or any of the coronavirus-related BBB Blog posts which I have made since that time, or viewed any of my coronavirus-related graphics, then you will know that this is exactly what I have strived to do. I have presented actual, often up-to-date facts and figures to keep my readers abreast regarding where we currently stand with this pandemic. In addition, where possible, I have backed up my position with Scriptures, so that you can see directly from God’s Word, why I believe as I do.

Furthermore, in some of the aforementioned pieces — including this one — I have likewise exposed some of the misguided attitudes, misplaced beliefs and ridiculous theories which I have seen posted on the social networks in which I participate. Sadly, they are not a few. It seems that no matter what I do, and what I say, or write, some people still choose to hold to their delusions and their wild conspiracy theories. The tragedy is that in the words of the Apostle Paul, not only are they deceived themselves, but they are deceiving an undetermined number of other people as well with their fantasies. If you are one of such people, it is time for you to wake up, and to get your head out of the sand.

For those of you who may have possibly missed some of my previous coronavirus-related writings, following is a list of everything I have written to date regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. I believe that you will find a lot of useful, factual, instructive and Scriptural information in this material. Please feel free to share this list on your own timelines, pages, in your Facebook groups, and on any other social networks where you happen to participate. Thank you so very much, and God bless you!

Coronavirus: Latest Statistics – Bill’s Bible Basics Blog



https://www.billkochman.com/Blog/coronavirus-latest-statistics-bills-bible-basics-blog/


NOTE: Be advised that due to the ongoing situation regarding the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, this blog post will be updated daily, as my time permits, until world health officials determine that the virus has peaked, and is on a steady downward trend worldwide.

CORONAVIRUS LATEST STATISTICS
Saturday, April 4, 2020
05:36 PM ChST (Chamorro Standard Time)

Please note that the accuracy of the figures which are shared in this BBB Blog post is based on two things:

1. The honesty and accuracy of the governments and health institutions which are reporting these statistics.

2. The level of testing which is being conducted by each nation which contributes statistics to this list.

Having said that, because some nations have been very slow to conduct tests, and/or have a very limited number of test kits in their possession, it is most probable that the figures listed below are far below reality. In short, the more tests each nation conducts, the more accurate these statistics will become over time. However, they will never be completely accurate due to a variety of reasons, which I explain in my series”Coronavirus: Just the Facts, Ma’am”, as well as in other BBB Blog posts.

Global Statistics:

181 countries affected to date
