Coronavirus and the Practicality of Theology
Does theology have anything practical to say, especially facing a global health crisis?
Does biblical theology offer us anything practical in the face of such an enemy?
The book of Psalms tells us God is Sovereign: “The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all” (Psalm 103:19).
This means God is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent.
He is not a distant, unengaged deity but is both the transcendent Almighty God of the Universe and our immanent Heavenly Father.
God is powerful, personal, and practical.
“Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases…
As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him” (Psalm 103:1-3, 13).
God is with you in all things.
