The notion that science has determined that masks are going to save us from Chinese Coronavirus (or any other disease) is utter tosh. Anyone telling you science is settled on any issue should raise a red flag. On masks, science isn't close to settled.
The British Journal of Medicine says cloth masks are 97% useless. A cluster randomised trial of cloth masks compared with medical masks in healthcare workers
A study of the more serious 1918 flu pandemic showed masks useless. The American Journal of Public Health (AJPH) from the American Public Health Association (APHA) publications

Often times me and my wife will view media on the TV or on our Spotify that I know we shouldn’t be listening or watching. Sometimes I’ll be the rebellious son that I am and try to justify us listening to it or watching it but the Holy Spirit always in that moment convicts me of it. Whenever I make an interjection and ask my wife if we can watch or listen to something else because I don’t feel that this is glorifying God she becomes angry and hot headed calling me a legalists, hypocrite, Bible thumper, dud, etc. This completely deters me from trying to lead her in thing like this in the future because every time I do I know it results in a blow up. I feel that this is steering her further away from God and I don’t know what to do....
I am finding my head is full of theological ideas and I am struggling a lot to know how to filter it all, and to avoid ideas that are erroneous or deficient. I suppose my reading of theology is part of my own search for truth and to be able to function and live it out.
My experience is that I have often found much that I think is of value in theologians that theological prejudices of others would have cautioned me against looking into. Finding someone who can truely understand where I am at and guide me in my reading is so rare, when people suggest anything they just suggest what they are benefiting from reading - which might well be completely irrelevant to me.
In any case please share or describe if you will your own...
