Christian preacher Lou Engle of Lou Engle Ministries has a solution to the COVID-19 pandemic: He wants everyone to fast for three days because something something Bible.
After three days, things will shift.
Silly governments, focusing on self-quarantining and vaccines. Just don’t eat. It’s what God wants.
He says the fast will focus on humbling ourselves and confessing our sins, crying out to God for mercy to stop the coronavirus outbreak.
Religious leaders started reaching out to Engle, prompting him to start a 3-day fast.
“Evangelist Jean-Luc Trachsel said, ‘Don’t miss this moment. Call a three-day fast across the world and shatter this coronavirus‘,” Engle said.
In a message, Andy Byrd of The Send wrote, “Lou, would you call a three-day fast in the midst of this 40-day fast and call the Church to stand against and rebuke this coronavirus? It is threatening the global advance of evangelism and missions and is determined to stop stadium Christianity.”
Because that’s the problem with the coronavirus. It hasn’t been rebuked enough. The virus didn’t set out to “stop stadium Christianity” and more than it was seeking revenge on the NCAA basketball tournament. It’s a virus. It’s a pandemic, not Satanic.
But I look forward to Engle releasing a video four days from now explaining why the pandemic is only getting worse even though he’s starving.
