Is wearing a Mask a precursor to the Mark of the Beast?

On Wednesday Night, July 15th, at 6:30 pm, we will discuss the wearing of face masks and other face coverings. I have received several requests to discuss this topic. Americans have been enduring a variety of COVID-19 restrictions since about March 15th. Most people had hoped that the pandemic would be over by now. Currently, there are 20 states that have imposed mandatory face mask regulations.  In the other states, Governors and Public Health officials, while not mandating, are encouraging people to wear masks. 

 Wearing masks has been a controversial issue. It began with confusing messages from the government. The U S Surgeon General Jerome Adams tweeted on Feb 29th “Seriously people- STOP BUYING MASKS! They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!” At the same time, Dr. Anthony Fauci (leading expert for the White House Coronavirus Task Force) told the public that masks wouldn’t be effective in stopping the spread of the virus. By June, Dr. Fauci was briefing the media that masks really do work, but he said they said those things in February because masks were in short supply and they needed them reserved for healthcare workers.

This has led to conflict across the country with some people believing that masks are highly effective in our war against COVID-19 and others believing that masks are just another government threat to our liberty.

Even in the churches, there is conflict. I’ve received messages from people being bullied by their Christian friends who say “loving like Jesus means wearing masks.”  Others are saying that wearing a mask is preparing the way for receiving the “Mark of the Beast.”
