I hear people say we are “being the church” because we can not meet. This is hogwash. You can’t “be missional” hiding in your closet in fear of anyone that gets within six feet of you might have a virus. The early church went from house to house but they did leave their own. Just saying.
Evangelism right now is more critical than ever. However, most are living in fear. They won’t dare go out and hug a homeless man or share a meal with a prostitute. They might get this “super flu.”
You can’t “be the church” living in fear from your couch. It requires you go where the people are and enter into their world. Ministries and believers won’t do that out of fear of this virus.
Don’t say you are “being the church” living in demonic fear and pretending it is “wisdom.” Want wisdom? Try Proverbs 11:30
