  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    · Pro 14:6 -> “A scorner seeks wisdom, and it is not found, but knowledge is easy to him who understands.”.

    Note that the wisdom isn’t found by the scorner. Why?

    · Mat 7:13,14 -> “Go in through the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there are who go in through it. Because narrow is the gate and constricted is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

    For the same reason for which the narrow gate and the constricted way is found by few people: because Jesus is the Wisdom of the Creator (Job 28:28; Prov 9:10; Col 2:3) and He is with those who have a contrite and broken heart (Isa 57:15), which fear Him and tremble before His Word (Isa 66:2).

    As we can see below, the Creator’s Word is plain:

    · Pro 8:8,9 -> “All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; nothing twisted or perverse is in them. They are all plain to him who understands, and right to those who find knowledge.”.

    Unfortunately, people start His journey in this world contemplating the high things (neglecting Luke 16:15; Rom 12:16), walking more and more upward and, thereby, going increasingly far away from everything that Jesus is.

    How can someone find the true wisdom and the right gate and way, once they look and walk in the wrong sense? We are born without anything and, therefore, very, very close whereto we ought to go.

    How much effort we do only to displace whence we should find everything that is good for our life. We fight, strain, wear out, only for finding out, in the end, that all peace, love, joy and eternal life that we so much long for was always so close and opened to us.

    So, have a good day resting and biding in Christ (Ps 37:7) and you will discover that the Word for your salvation always was near to you:

    · Rom 10:8 -> “But what does it say? "The Word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart"; that is, the Word of Faith which we proclaim;”.
