  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  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 15:12 -> “A scorner does not love one who corrects him, nor will he go to the wise.”.

    The scorner won’t go to the wise because they love more murkiness than light (John 3:18-21) so that nobody descries their evil doings. Hence, they strain to keep Jesus and His people at bay:

    Job 21:14 -> “And they say to God, Depart from us; for we do not desire the knowledge of Your ways;”.
    • Joh 7:7 -> “The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it, that its works are evil.”.
    • 2Ti 4:3,4 -> “For a time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap up teachers to themselves according to their own lusts, tickling the ear. And they will turn away their ears from the truth and will be turned to myths.”.

    Literally, they hate him who rebukes, and they despise him who speaks uprightly (Amo 5:10). In virtue of this:

    • Pro 9:7,8 -> “One rebuking a scorner gets shame to himself; and one rebuking a wicked one gets himself a blemish. Do not reprove a scorner, lest he hate you; give to a wise man, and he will love you.”.

    Understand: the correction is grievous to him who forsakes the Way. Nevertheless, considering that he who hates reproof shall die (Pro 15:10), we need to seek out in Christ our role so that He can manifest through us without that we take the blemish of the scorners.

    So, have a splendid day loving the rebuke (which, in the end, comes from Jesus – Prov 3:11,12) so that you can be partaker of Jesus’ holiness (Heb 12:11).
