Truly, His Ways are Mysterious. He can think an entire universe into existence, flinging trillions of large and small objects into orbits which allow them to transit dark space for billions of years without incident — but Our Invisible Friend is foiled by a virus so teensy that it can’t even be seen!
At Lourdes, for instance, where He sends healing waters to cure His People of sundry maladies, the Pious have determined He cannot protect His Friends from a … virus!
As the number of people testing positive for the coronavirus in Europe continued to grow, the French Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes announced that pilgrims were still welcome, but the pools the sick bathe in hoping for healing would be closed temporarily.
“Our first concern will always be the safety and health of the pilgrims and the shrine’s working community,” said a note posted Feb. 28 on the shrine’s website. “As a precaution, the pools have been closed until further notice.”
Neither is Kentucky’s Ark Encounter secure against the CoronaVirus, though you would certainly think a rational Invisible Friend would exploit an opportunity to instruct innocent minds instead of allowing them to be killed.
The leadership of Answers in Genesis and its biblical attractions, the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter, has been and continues to be actively meeting and communicating nearly around the clock concerning the ever-changing situation regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus).
After communicating with our staff yesterday to prepare them for the strong likelihood that our attractions would be closing to the public, we made the decision today and informed our staff earlier that we would be closing the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter to guests effective Tuesday, March 17.
We have taken this action after considering numerous factors, including foremost the health and safety of our staff and our visiting guests.
We project that we will reopen the attractions to the public on Thursday, April 2.
There is only one possible explanation: Viruses are tougher than You-Know-Who — and that’s the judgment of the people who know Him best!
I think you can see, now, what Representative Tlaib is so upset about.
So there you go: Even as Godly people from France to Kentucky agree that He isn’t going to protect them from a teensy li’l virus, poor Rep. Tlaib is getting bashed for saying so frankly.
Truly, His Ways are Mysterious. And the Ways of His Friends are downright Baffling. But maybe my perplexity is merely a sign of my acute wickedness.
