Albert Mohler: Humanity Humbled by a Virus

The global pandemic of the coronavirus has us all looking at a new normal that doesn’t feel that normal at all. We’re learning a new vocabulary, a new set of habits, a new set of rules and a new set of expectations.

There are so many deeply humbling aspects of the COVID-19 crisis.

Among them is the timing: A couple short weeks ago it would not have seemed plausible that we’d be facing a shutdown of travel between the United States and Europe; a 40 percent fall in airline travel coast to coast, and a suspension of athletic events.

School children are not in class, college and seminary students are not in classrooms and—campus by campus, school by school—the populations have been evacuated.

We should all be hoping—and praying—that social distancing will slow the spread of the virus and, soon, that we’d see an effective vaccine as well.

All of this reminds Christians that our only hope is found in Christ. Our ultimate refuge is only in the one true and living God.

We knew that, but we need to remind ourselves of that—we need to share that with our neighbors—even if we share it with our neighbors at some distance.

Owen Strachan: Opportunity Amidst Distancing

The Coronavirus pandemic has fundamentally altered American—and global—life. Right now, we don’t know if this season of distancing will last for weeks or months.

Here is something we do know: for families, this can be a time of quietness and togetherness. We are used to a super-heated, super-busy lifestyle. Many families barely see each other and rarely share a meal together during a normal week. We dash from activity to activity, missing many opportunities for closeness, love and training.

No one wants a global pandemic. We’re working and praying for its end. But fathers and mothers should not miss the real chance we have here.

Amidst many difficulties, we can prioritize the family.

We can plug back in with our children: Read good books, play board games, laugh and pray together, hope together.

This is a tough season—but if we seize the moment, we can redeem the time.

David Davenport: Democrats Don’t Want A Revolution After All

In the twinkling of an electoral eye, frontrunner Bernie Sanders’ campaign is near death and Joe Biden’s has been resurrected. How could this happen?

Bernie said the American system needed a “political revolution,” and his revolution was “for all”: Medicare for all, free college for all, housing for all and jobs for all. The price tag was tens of trillions of dollars and a revolution in how America operates.

Even Democrats were not ready for that.

Perhaps it was about stopping the Trump revolution: a CNN Poll shows that 66 percent of Democratic voters thought Biden could best oppose Trump, 26 percent for Sanders. Or maybe concern over the coronavirus revolution changed things: the same poll showed Biden could best handle a major crisis by 65 percent over Sanders–at 23 percent.

It turns out 2020 is not the year for a revolution.

Medved: The Power of Familiarity and the Race for the Presidency

After Super Tuesday, the choice for president narrowed to three well-known—and very elderly—candidates.

By time of November’s election, Donald Trump, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders will range in age from 74 to 79; whoever wins will qualify as the oldest president ever inaugurated.

The decisive advantage for Trump, Bernie and Biden involves their name recognition.

Even before he ran the first time, Trump’s decades of celebrity status gave him decisive advantages since most citizens pay scant attention to politics, and instinctively prefer a familiar figure to names you don’t recognize. That’s particularly true at a time when most voters perceive the country’s doing well, or at least holding its own.

In that context, familiarity reliably trumps advanced age.
