Masking God

It was brought to my attention that some satanic rituals involve wearing a mask and standing six feet apart (source at 43:55). It was also brought to my attention that there isn’t any scientific evidence that standing six feet apart reduces the spread of small viruses like SarsCov2. These are a just a few of the poorly linked “facts” that formed the basis for the policies that began to control our lives in 2020.

I have already written about the fact that universal masking is wrong. Since then, it was brought to my attention that mask mandates also do another thing. They cover the face of a creature that was made in the image of God Himself. Doing a thing like this may have ramifications that we can’t fully know. Even though there are times that God allows the sick to be masked, as I mentioned in the other article, only the outwardly sick with specific kinds of disease are to be masked and only below the nose.

You might argue that it isn’t the physical face that God finds most important, but that’s not the point. Even if the physical is only a symbol of the spiritual, it must remain symbolic. In other words, if it is a symbol of what is good spiritually, it is wrong to harm the symbol just as it is wrong to harm the real thing. Jesus’ face is mentioned as being connected to the glory of God and He is our example. (See: 2 Corinthians 4:6)

When you study the Bible, you quickly come to the conclusion that doing things that God doesn’t like have consequences. Some of those consequences are immediate and some of them don’t happen until after you die, but under no condition will any man get away with anything that goes against God. (see Numbers 32:23)

The Bible also tells us that God has an enemy. Satan has been trying to mess God up since God exposed Satan for his attempt to take over. As Christians, we know that this is the real battle on earth today. It may look political, but it’s much more than that. It makes sense that Satan would cause those under his control, like Biden, the CDC and Dr. Fauci, to create an environment that condemns mankind. Satan has used this method before to destroy men. Man may have another purpose, but is he often used by Satan to do what God hates.

It is a Christian’s responsibility to promote God and His image. We are to teach our children the same. Besides the fact that the masks are a symbol of servitude to other men, which is wrong for a Christian (see 1 Corinthians 7:23), it also represents something that covers the face of God. This is evil and must be stopped before our culture faces the inevitable consequences.

Experts Disagree with Covid-19 Guidelines

You may have seen the signs that say: “Masks save lives.” Have you ever considered which lives they are talking about? Some mask experts actually say that they don’t save Covid-19 lives. The same is true with Covid-19 vaccines. High-level experts are clearly saying that the vaccines are not only ineffective, they are saying that they are actually dangerous.

Challenging the Mask Mandates

In this video The Highwire’s Del Bigtree interviews two masking experts. They say that not only is mask wearing ineffective in stopping the spread of Covid-19, long-term mask wearing is bad for your health and can actually prolong your illness.

One of the many alarming things that this video reveals, is the attempt by our institutions to lie to the people about what their own eyes can clearly see. Notice that when you do your own carbon dioxide test, you discover that you have a very harmful level when wearing a mask for just a short time. Our institutions and media have attempted to get people to ignore their own science.

The Value of your Own Experience

On top of the fact that efforts have been made to encourage us to ignore our own eyes, they are also making it appear that experts agree that masks are not only beneficial, but necessary to keep people safe from Covid-19.

When I use my own eyes, I keep discovering more real evidence that masks simply don’t work for viruses like Covid-19. Here’s a formal study that documents long lists of health issues that can be caused by wearing a mask as well as explaining why masks don’t really work for Covid-19, that’s only a recent one. In my article: Questioning Mask Mandates, I provide a link to a list of over 50 studies that challenge the use of masks for diseases like this Covid-19. That’s a lot of experts and it isn’t what we are being lead to believe by those who claim to have our best interests in mind.

The Complete Treatment Blackout

Dr. Peter McCullough is the most published writer in his medical field. He asserts that when a person contracted Covid-19, they were given no other option than to sit at home and wait to get worse. He believes that this was an improper way to deal with the disease.

Dr. McCullough also addresses the government’s ineffectiveness in regard to determining what kinds of treatments were being used and distributed. He also mentions that his YouTube video was censored making it even harder for doctors to get information about what to do.

Dr. McCullough is an expert, but he mentions that he worked with others who agree with him as well. He notes that the testing protocols clearly lack a scientifically rational basis.

Challenging the Push for Vaccination

Mask wearing is a serious issue to many experts, but the problems with Covid-19 vaccines is an even bigger issue among those who know how they work.

Right about the time that the first Covid-19 vaccines were being released in the U.K. and the United States, I discovered two prominent health experts, one from Germany and one from the U.K. that were expressing so much concern about the vaccines that they formally asked European countries to stop both the human testing and the distribution of them. Here’s a video that includes one of these experts explaining how the vaccine could potentially cause problems with having children.

It’s good to highlight that in my video, the expert explains that our body functions are actually dependent on certain viruses. In other words, not all viruses are bad. This is kind of important for people to understand don’t you think? Especially when you choose to take a vaccine that teaches your body to eliminate a class of viruses. What if you teach your body to eliminate a virus that you will need later?

The other expert that helped develop the warning to European countries mentioned earlier, also used to be the lead scientist for the vaccine making company: Pfizer. His name is Dr. Mike Yeadon. He and many other experts, believe that the Covid-19 pandemic has actually been over for a long time.

Notice that Dr. Yeadon also believes that the test procedure being used to test for Covid-19 is ineffective. Now you might be thinking that he’s wrong. Too many experts disagree with Dr. Yeadon. Well, that’s not a good argument logically. It doesn’t matter how many experts disagree with the truth. The truth is still the truth, but if you are thinking that it makes his argument’s weaker, then it’s important to understand that a very large number of experts have been kept from public view by the institutions that have made the rules.

Challenging the Lack of Options

I’d also like to mention Dr. Ben Carson. As far as I know, Dr. Carson is usually in favor of vaccines. I believe he may have even argued against Trump on the issue during the primary campaign before the 2016 election. Even so, Dr. Carson also disagrees with how Covid-19 and the push for vaccination is going. He even appeared to have trouble talking to Neil Cavuto who seemed to keep trying to push the vaccination initiative without considering other treatments.

The Huge Number of Experts that Disagree

You may not even know about it, but there is a group of over 60,000 medical and scientific experts that disagree with how Covid-19 is being handled and were willing to sign their names to it. You can find The Great Barrington Declaration here.

Dr. Roger Hodkinson from Canada is well aware of The Great Barrington Declaration. He’s an expert on his own right and also speaks out strongly against what the government has been doing in regard to Covid-19. He calls for an immediate end to the government’s involvement and explains in detail in this video.

It’s important for all of us to remember that expert opinion does not equal truth. What it does do is inform us when we make our own decisions.

Since only God has perfect knowledge of disease and since it is wrong to forcefully change someone’s body based on your own ideas, the only moral option is to allow individuals to choose whether or not they should wear masks or take vaccines. We should also know that many experts disagree with the requirements and recommendations that our institutions and governments are making.

Clear Evidence that Universal Masking Isn’t Necessary
Much more evidence has been put forward since the time I wrote this article but it exposed a real problem very early on. In this article, I describe a logical inconsistency in the advice given by the CDC regarding who should be masked and who should be tested that suggests that they don’t really think that masking is necessary for everyone.

Clear Evidence that Universal Masking Isn’t Necessary

After carefully considering COVID-19 recommendations, I came to a very strong conclusion that mask mandates have nothing to do with the danger of being infected with COVID-19. The CDC has this recommendation regarding masks: “CDC recommends that you wear masks in public…

How Should Christians Respond to Mask Mandates?

**revised on 10/23/2020 *** This document is intended to provide a specific response to government mask mandates based on God’s written law. It’s intended to answer these questions: Is it wrong for governments to issue mask mandates? If it is, should Christians obey the mandates anyway? If Christians shouldn’t obey, how are we to live?

The biblical role of government is given to us in a combination of Old and New Testament teaching. The laws that God gave to Moses, tell us what God expects of individuals. They tell us when an individual has violated God’s law and what the punishments for disobedience are. The New Testament provides more about what government’s role is today in relation to God’s previously defined laws. God spoke through Paul in Romans 13:1-7 and Peter in 1 Peter 2:11-17 and in these passages we learn that God gives civil government the right to discover which individuals have done wrong and to punish them for crimes with the punishments specified in the laws given to Moses. It’s important to remember that God provides a process to make sure that the crime was actually committed. Wrongfully punishing an innocent person is also treated as a crime. Crimes without a specific punishment are left for God alone to punish. For more on this, listen to Dr. Jason Lisle’s message on The Law of God.

Since God only tasks government with the job of punishing crimes with specified punishments, we are limited to determining if the law of Moses has a mask mandate or something like it, and if so, see if it has a punishment specified for breaking it. Surprisingly, there is a law that specifies a face covering:

““The leper in whom the plague is shall wear torn clothes, and the hair of his head shall hang loose. He shall cover his upper lip, and shall cry, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’  All the days in which the plague is in him he shall be unclean. He is unclean. He shall dwell alone. His dwelling shall be outside of the camp.”

Leviticus 13:45-46 (emphasis mine)

It’s interesting that the face covering requirement here only permits the covering of the mouth and not the nose. Future discussions could clarify the form of covering and the disease specified, but the most important thing to realize here is that that God’s mandate only specifies that a sick person be “masked.” The passage also specifies the process by which certain diseases are detected, none of which are asymptomatic. The process by which a person was determined to be sick was objective. It couldn’t have a “false positive” as many obscure tests have today. Once again, a false positive could end up putting a well person in isolation and that would be a violation of the law in regard to punishing the innocent. Read the first 44 verses of Leviticus 13 to get a more complete picture.

What we learn here is that there is no biblical mask mandate for a person who is not sick. Forcing people who are well to wear a mask is not only not biblical, it is in violation of biblical law. A well person is not to be put in jail for not wearing a mask. Also, there was no further requirements for the sick other than to be in isolation until their symptoms were clearly gone. It is quite clear that it is wrong for a government to mandate that masks be worn by well people based on this passage.

This answers the first question and we can move on to the next. Assuming the mask mandates are illegal, the question now is: Should we offend our leaders by refusing to comply? This is where the law gets more complicated.

Thankfully, it appears that God anticipated that we would encounter problems like these. When Paul was giving instructions to Christian converts, he had to deal with the fact that many of them were slaves. I am told that about 50% of the people living in the Roman empire were under some form of slavery. The Bible teaches us that all slavery is wrong for Christians. Here’s what it says:

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Galatians 3:28

Paul was tasked by God to tell the slaves what to do when they became Christians while under human bondage. Since God didn’t see them as being any less than their masters, should they offend their masters and demand release? Should they run away? What should they do? I bring this to our attention, because the same principle appears to apply to us regarding mask mandates. When our leadership decides to require us to do something God doesn’t, we are being forced into slavery. When we, as Christians, find ourselves enslaved to a government, we are in a similar situation. So let’s look at what Paul told slaves like us to do:

“Let each man stay in that calling in which he was called.  Were you called being a bondservant? Don’t let that bother you, but if you get an opportunity to become free, use it.  For he who was called in the Lord being a bondservant is the Lord’s free man. Likewise he who was called being free is Christ’s bondservant.  You were bought with a price. Don’t become bondservants of men.  Brothers, let each man, in whatever condition he was called, stay in that condition with God.”

1 Corinthians 7:20-24

God tells us that if we find ourselves enslaved to a man as a Christian that we take any opportunity to be free available. If we apply this to mask wearing, it would appear to be saying that if we find ourselves forced by the government to wear a mask, even though they shouldn’t be mandating it, we should go ahead and comply until we can find a way to be free legally. At this point, It may appear that we have answered the second question, but there are more complications to consider.

One of the many amazing things about God’s law is that He applied His laws directly to individuals. It would appear that it is upon this fact that human liberty is founded. The Bible teaches that when a government or a master tells an individual to do something that goes against God’s law, that the individual is to obey God instead of man.

“When they had brought them, they set them before the council. The high priest questioned them, saying, “Didn’t we strictly command you not to teach in this name? Behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and intend to bring this man’s blood on us.”  But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.”

Acts 5:27-29

The Jewish leadership of Peter’s time had requested that they stop spreading the word about Jesus, but God had already told them to do the opposite. Even though they were obligated to follow the Jewish leadership by God’s law, they had to disobey and suffer for it in order to be obedient to the law of God as an individual. This behavior was also clearly demonstrated by the Old Testament prophets.

So the next question we must answer is: “Does God tell us to not wear a mask?”

There isn’t a specific law in the Bible that tells a person that he can’t wear a mask. So, if we base our decision on this, it would appear that we are required to obey our governmental masters and wear masks, but once again, there’s more complication in the law that we must consider.

There is a condition, specified in the New Testament, in which it is wrong to do something that we would otherwise be free to do. It’s a significant doctrine of New Testament Christianity and has to do with meat sacrificed to idols. During the Roman rule, pagans would take their best meat and offer it up to the gods like Zeus and Hermes. The temple workers would then take this meat and sell it in the market as the meat that was sacrificed to the gods. Everyone knew that this was the best of the best. Christians and Jews had qualms with this. This was sacrificed to an idol so some thought that eating this meat was like participating in idol worship. Paul said that it wasn’t wrong, individually, as long the individual had enough knowledge to realize that Zeus wasn’t a real god. Even so, there was a wrong way for this individual to use this freedom. Here’s the problem:

“For though there are things that are called “gods”, whether in the heavens or on earth; as there are many “gods” and many “lords”; yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we live through him. However, that knowledge isn’t in all men. But some, with consciousness of the idol until now, eat as of a thing sacrificed to an idol, and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.”

1 Corinthians 8:5-7

Paul warns the knowledgeable that they must pay attention to what their actions portray to those around them. I believe that the term used today is: “signaling.” Back then, if you were caught eating at the the temple to Zeus, a “weak” Christian might see you and decide that it’s actually O.K. to worship Jesus and Zeus. The knowledgeable Christian would be signaling the wrong thing to the ignorant person, effectively destroying his weak faith. Even though we are free to eat anywhere, it becomes wrong again when what we are signalling destroys someone else, causing them to sin.

So, before we conclude that it’s O.K. to wear face masks under our current conditions, we must ask ourselves: “Would our mask wearing signal something inappropriate to those around us?”

I believe that this is where we all must make our own personal assessment. If you don’t believe that we are in a public health emergency, and you indicate the opposite to those around you, you are lying and that is a violation of the 9th commandment. In fact, you might be misleading those who have less knowledge than you and causing them to act irrationally. This issue can have very serious consequences in society as a whole. As Churches are being sued and pastors going to jail, it’s pretty obvious that the government can’t be trusted with too much power. Would we, by wearing a mask, make people believe that the government needs to continue to control our lives as they take away more and more liberty?

The Coronavirus is no longer a public health emergency in most places in the United States and it may have never been. Statewide mask mandates may create a false signal that there actually is a public health emergency when there actually isn’t one anymore. I don’t know why our leaders would force us to do this. Perhaps its because they don’t believe in God and His power to help us, but here’s what God’s law says to us:

“You shall not spread a false report. Don’t join your hand with the wicked to be a malicious witness.”

Exodus 23:1

In my earlier version of this document, I asserted that I thought wearing a mask would almost always be signalling to others that we believe that there is a health emergency. I have since come to believe that most people are aware that we are under a mandate and because of that, we are merely “signalling” to each other that we are obeying the authorities.

That being said, you may be forced to wear a mask in order to buy groceries or to do your job. It doesn’t really matter what you are signalling at that point. Everyone knows that they have been forced to do something against their will by the authorities. That places us back under slavery only this is slavery by forces outside of ourselves. We shouldn’t willingly place ourselves under the mandate, but it has become clear that the mandates have been imposed upon us against our will.

I don’t think it is good for us to just go along with mask mandates, however. One loss of freedom will likely lead to another. Instead, I believe that we should do everything in our power to stop them. On thing we can do is to ask our pastors, police and sheriff to disregard these wrongful mandates. We can call on “lesser magistrates” to help protect us by seeking them out and rallying around them when they take their stand against the illegal laws of the higher authorities.

If you are one of those lesser magistrates, or if you are simply one under authority and want to know more, here’s a link to The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates. A lesser magistrate can be a local sheriff, a city council member, a governor, a district attorney and others. When someone is willing to take a stand, we need to let them know we are right behind them. Amazing freedom has returned to people when lesser magistrates have taken a stand.

Finally, as with any injustice of man, it is our duty as believers to remember who we are fighting. Although it is true that those who oppress us are human, the Bible tells us that the real enemy cannot be seen. Let’s stay focused on what God wants us to focus on.

“Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

Ephesians 6:10-13
