President Trump did the right thing by going to St. Johns’ Episcopal Church with a Bible. Terrance Floyd told people not to riot and destroy their communities, yet protests and riots continue. What is behind this chaos?
It was announced on October 28, 2019 that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a part of the NIH would receive $100 million in grants for HIV and sickle cell research from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Each day 21,000 children die from starvation and disease.
Each day some 25,000 people die of starvation
3,000,000 children die of hunger in India every year
Vikram Patel writes:
But what do the hundreds of millions of Indians who face penury as a consequence of these lock-downs think about these policies? Is the risk of contracting a flu-like illness worth your family going hungry for weeks or longer? Why is it so much worse than other deadly infectious diseases, from TB to Japanese Encephalitis, which have been killing millions each year for decades? How do people who live jammed cheek to jowl in squalid slums with no water to drink and no money to buy food “socially distance”, “wash hands thoroughly with soap” and “use sanitisers frequently”? Why did the people who queued up with me on the street outside a half-shuttered grocery store, minutes after the PM’s speech, to stock up on essentials, get lathi-charged by imperious police? This, in Goa, where the COVID-19 case count is an impressive zero.
We are in need of a great spiritual re-awakening. The core of this awakening needs to be living for the sake of others. We see this spirit in the movement of the first Great Awakening in the United States in the period around 1740 to 1750. Daryl Bryant writes in an essay in The Coming Kingdom; Essays in American Millennialism & Eschatology
Rather than seeing the millennial kingdom unfolding in the events subsequent to the Awakening, Edwards believed that the Devil had succeeded in turning the movement away from its divine ground. Consequently, Edwards turned to the development of an account of the Christian life centered on the overcoming of a parochial spirit, on rooting out the demons of self-centeredness in the Christian, the church and the wider culture.

Countries that respect God-given rights, and states that respect God-given constitutional rights are not doing any worse than other places that have instituted draconian restrictions.
Rev Sun Myung Moon states:
..Your conscience knows and perceives not only every action you have performed but
also every thought you have entertained. Your conscience is aware of these things before your
teachers, parents or even God are. Hence, if you were to live in absolute obedience to the
commands of your conscience, which is your teacher for eternity, you would be absolutely
guaranteed to have eternal life.
The Declaration of Independence states:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed
On the Daily Show with Trevor Noah on April 2, 2020, Bill Gates said:
Sadly, at some level of wealth, there’ll be countries that no matter how hard they try, they will have a widespread epidemic, and so again, sadly, the richer countries that do contain the epidemic will not allow people from those countries to come in unless they are quarantined, or tested or prove they are immune. And so this is gonna stop people going across borders, very dramatically these next few years, till we get to that full vaccination. Within the United States is different because we’re not gonna partition the country, and so therefore, we are all in it together, we can’t do what we’re gonna do with foreign nationals, which is reduce the numbers a lot and have very strict screening there. We’re not gonna have it at every state border, some complex quarantine center, and so the whole country needs, even when you have small numbers, because those can exponentiate to big numbers so quickly, the doubling time is like three days when you’re still behaving in the pre-epidemic way. So each country has to get the entire populous, even some who initially resisted, maybe for very good reasons, because the economic effect on them is strong. So this is powerful medicine, but if you take a big dose of it earlier, you don’t have to take it for nearly as long.
