Medical Face Masks - Pt. 2
- I Corinthians 6:20 “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
- I Corinthians 7:23 “Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.”
Dear believer in Christ, you are not your own (I Cor. 6:19). You are God’s. Jesus paid for you on Calvary with His blood and with His life. When you accept Jesus’ sacrifice for your sins, you are agreeing to be Christ’s. As the text repeatedly decrees, “ye are bought with a price”. This is crucial to remember with mandatory masks or mandatory anything that affects our bodies. Only God, the believer’s owner, has say in what happens with your body. And what God says is laid out throughout His Word. (See “Medical Face Masks – Pt. 1” to see what God said about medical face coverings.) (Also read: “Love Your Neighbor” in the “They Say” Series which deals with a misconception of those who want you to release your rights for the good of others.)
Believers are not “the servants of men” as the text also decrees. Citizens are not servants of the state or government: the socialist’s battle cry. The government has no say over the believer’s body which is God’s. In America, our founding fathers realized God’s truth on this matter when they promised in the 4th Amendment “the right of the people to be secure in their persons”. America’s Constitution promised each American personal boundaries around themselves and their body (“their persons”) which the government must not breach. Mandating masks requires the government to breach your personal space/freedom. Your person/your body’s rights have been violated. Only God Who bought you has authority over your body.
