There are two type of people who wear face masks: Those who submit to their governing authorities and those who wear them out of fear. When I go to a grocery store, I can tell who wear them out of submission. They are the ones who as soon as they leave the premises, remove their masks. They are the ones who don't wear them in their car. People don't like being told what they should wear and those in authority like to lord it over us. It relives me to see people because I am just like that. I can identify with them. To me, mask wearing is social control. Think of it this way: Picture a hand over the mouth. Could you speak if your mouth was cover? How about when a kidnapper covers your mouth? The purpose of that is that you don't scream.
I'm not saying that the virus isn't real. I know people have gotten sick or died over it, but it is how you react to the virus. The reason I don't fear the virus is because Jesus's blood protects me and I am in his protection. I have friends who are the same way. They don't fear the virus. The ones who do will make sure you stay 6 feet apart, wear the mask at all times, except when eating or sleeping. (I even seen them wear them in their cars or when they are outside..
Do you fall in any of these categories? Do you wear mask to submit to the authorities or are you afraid, you might get the virus if you don't?
