Shane Idleman on A Solution for COVID Fear and Overcrowded Hospitals

No matter what your view of COVID, we can agree that it is impacting all our lives. Since June I’ve been saying that when the cold, flu and pneumonia season gets here, it’s going to get worse, but I also have a solution. I recently talked to nurses at each hospital in our area as well as in other cities, and they all said the same thing: Many of the people crowding the hospitals don’t need to be there.

So why are the hospitals so crowded? One word: fear.

Yes, the virus is real, and I am not suggesting that sick people should not seek medical assistance, but you will not find a cure for fear at the hospital. The media and most politicians are fueling fear rather than offering hope.

There is zero mention of God and a lot of dire, dreadful and grim talk. Given the nature of politics in our day, this is not surprising. But it’s also as if many Christians, some in political offices, are too embarrassed to mention the true source of hope—God.

Is this perhaps because they themselves lack a vibrant relationship with Him?

What if instead of telling America that our situation is dire and hopeless and that we are all doomed, we instead say there is no hindrance too great, no battle too hard and no power too strong for God? What if we completely turn to Him? What if we remind people of Jeremiah 17:7, “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord”?

We must offset fear with hope—hope in God.

Many are scared because they don’t know God. That’s the painful truth.

When you fear God, you don’t fear death. Romans 12:12 reminds us to “rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.” Again, we must spread hope, not fear.

Why Aren’t We Building Immunity God’s Way?

Let’s shift gears to natural immunity. Yes, wash your hands, distance yourself if you need to and take commonsense precautions. But why aren’t many doctors helping people build their own immunity? Why are they silent on this?

A vaccine is not the answer. I’m not against vaccines per se; I’m against what doesn’t work. If the immune system is already taxed because of poor health and bad eating habits, COVID will escalate problems, and no vaccine can balance out poor lifestyle choices.

We need more physicians who understand how the body works to help the patient from the inside out. They need us, and we need them. But I cringe at the number of Type 2 diabetes patients who are sent home from their doctor’s office with even more medication, or the countless overweight individuals who leave with high blood pressure drugs instead of real solutions.
