You have things backwards, Jim. The devil is trying to force his world on us. One of his primary ways is legal abortion. Resisting him is not trying to force God's kingdom on others. You may continue to repeat it, though, if it makes you feel better.
James 4:7 "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."

Ebola was going to end all things as we know it. MUCH higher fatality rate than Covid-19. Remember? How about SARS? (Also a coronavirus, also from China, interestingly traced back to animal markets) Ever heard of Asian flu? Hong Kong flu? They killed lots of people. Swine flu? Legionnaire's disease? Plenty of choices to run around in circles and yell about.
I would at this point suggest panic is a more serious threat to the west than the disease. And the shame of it is how the looney tunes are manufacturing panic, then trying to blame Trump for it. I guess they needed something, what with nothing else working for them. As Neil pointed out, Trump is blamed both for doing too much, and doing too little. But then Democrats aren't known for their brightness of thought.

I like that, John. God chooses imperfect servants, that he himself may readily be seen at work through them.

If only we could get Medicare to accept the bill. I don't see too many posters or commenters here defending the Roman Catholic Church; even someone as 'wholesome' as Franklin Graham gets over 200 negative comments posted.
True. And as many times as Billy Graham has been criticized here, one might think he's still walking the planet. I wonder if all the talk will affect his eternity at this point?

All the governments want to be seen as doing something. Corona virus is the latest buzz disease. Too bad they aren't as interested in showing such concern for the flu, which is responsible for far more deaths, every year. 16000 minimum in the US alone this year. 300000-600000 worldwide. But flu is not new news, and can't be used to create panic. New diseases with foreign or exotic names works better.
"And so, he (Brooks)praises networks of shared parenting in such places as African-American neighborhoods with low rates of fatherhood, same-sex and polyamorous arrangements in LGBTQ communities, and even groups of friends living together to support one another.
What Brooks misses is that all of these things are attempts to mitigate the situations caused when families break. They are not replacements. As noble as some of these attempts are, the outcomes for those involved in â€śchosen families,â€ť especially outcomes related to the long-term health and well-being of children, are consistently worse than they are for those in nuclear families."
"The Lord enjoins us to do good to all without exception, though the greater part, if estimated by their own merit, are most unworthy of it. But Scripture subjoins a most excellent reason, when it tells us that we are not to look to what men in themselves deserve, but to attend to the image of God, which exists in all, and to which we owe all honor and love." Calvin, Institutes, 3.7
