it’s {not} just a mask

As a Christ follower and minister’s wife, I cringe every time I hear anyone use scripture to preach wearing a mask as a means to “love our neighbor.” Please. Stop. cherry picking scripture. I say this with all love. Preaching a 1 degree off doctrine to fit this grand script of deception does not advance the kingdom.

There is an agenda at work – we are called to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. Matt. 10:16 …so that we may not be taken advantage of by Satan. For we are not ignorant of his schemes. 2 Cor. 2:11 Wake up, church!

It’s just a mask? ✖️It’s just two weeks. ✖️It’s just non-essential businesses. ✖️It’s just to keep from overwhelming the hospitals. ✖️It’s just until cases go down more. ✖️It’s just to keep others from being scared. ✖️It’s just for a few more weeks. ✖️It’s just communion or singing. ✖️It’s just until we get a vaccine. ✖️It’s just a few side effects. ✖️It’s just a bracelet. ✖️It’s just to let people know you’re safe to be around. ✖️It’s just for the coronavirus vaccine. ✖️It’s just an app. ✖️It’s just to let others know who you’ve been in contact with. ✖️It’s just a few more months. ✖️It’s just a video. ✖️It’s just an email account. ✖️It’s just for protecting others from hate speech. ✖️It’s just a few people. ✖️It’s just a few places that don’t take cash. ✖️It’s just a little chip. ✖️It’s just for medical information and paying for things. ✖️It’s just so you can travel. ✖️It’s just so you can get your driver’s license. ✖️It’s just so you can vote. ✖️It’s just for a few more years. ✖️It’s just a statue. ✖️It’s just a building. ✖️It’s just a song. ✖️It’s just a piece of paper. ✖️It’s just a flag. ✖️It’s just a piece of cloth. ✖️It’s {NOT} just a piece of cloth. ✖️It’s {NOT} just a mask.  -Forrest Maready

Love your neighbor by: hugging (plastic-free), smiling, making a meal, celebrating a birthday together, meeting a financial need, cleaning their home, and listening. Share the gospel & message of hope in Christ.
