This is a very intriguing conversation. It is a bit long but worthwhile if you are concerned about governmental overreach. Dr. Atlas makes the case that the Coronavirus shutdown was never needed and that its side effects are far worst than the cure. We also included a link to his article in The Hill. Dr. Atlas discusses his article, its message, and the unintended catastrophic consequences of the pandemic shutdown. The case he advocates is chilling and should have everyone second-guessing the power and role of government in our lives.
Although we, as Christians, are charged to live set-apart from the world (1 John 4:4-5), this does not mean we are to stay impervious to its perils and windfalls. Our motto is: do not be naive in what you believe. The COVID-19 shutdown will have negative health, fiscal, and fellowship ripple effects that will last for years. R-Rated Religion warned that this would happen and the sad but true reality of it is that the Church universal bought into it; hook, line, and sinker.
