People who like avoiding contact with other people will see the covid-19 crisis as a blessing. People who thrive on contact with their peers (including strangers!) will see the viral outbreak as a blessing in disguise. The exposure of our natural attitudes and practices are challenges we cannot ignore and yet the truth about our communities and love of nature will still not lead to change. Not much of a change will be noticeable to people whose lives in addition to employment are simply eat, drink, and play.
How do I know that people are not going to change? The point is repeated in the movie about how our world comes to an end. There is the decline of love and faith and (Mat. 24:12, Luke 18:8). What is another government edict going to do to convict a person about his access to a life that is abundant? God is not a terrorist!
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.Matthew 24:12
I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man comes, shall he find faith on the earth?Luke 18:8
1 Corinthians 2:14
But the natural man does not receive the things of God’s Spirit: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

How good can the world be without all its parts? Do we really believe that there is excellence in all the earth?
We have long ago discarded our respect for nature. We like our fruits and vegetables seedless, and artificial flavours and colours do not disturb us. We could have a world with fewer cans and bottles. Our governments have outlawed cannabis and legalised alcohol, legalized theft and outlaw enterprise. We can love a car but there is no relationship. We prefer the world with people who are spitting images of ourselves. That is xenophobia in disguise.
How much smaller and ridiculous can the pride of the nations and any of the globe’s clans get? NOT MUCH!
THE COMPONENTS OF LIFE1 John 2:16
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
