Mark Dever and Jonathan Leeman of 9 Marks discussed the COVID-19 virus in a podcast and disused should churches meet? This is a brief post reporting on what was said by the writer of 9 Marks. 

“Investigating rare diseases gives researchers more clues about how the healthy immune system functions.”

Anthony Fauci

I thank God, whom I serve, as my ancestors did, with a clear conscience, as night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers. Recalling your tears, I long to see you, so that I may be filled with joy.

2 Timothy 2:3-4 NIV

Two Sundays ago at Capitol Hill Baptist Mark Dever discussed the COVID-19 virus. He told people that during this medical crisis it was okay to not go to church. In a podcast with Jonathan Leeman the creator of 9 Marks explained his thoughts on the COVID-19 pandemic. Dever looked for guidance from the  1918 Spanish flu and leaned upon that for a way forward. He advised Christians to follow the government and asked people to email the leadership of Capitol Hill Baptist Church and let them know that they will stay home. 9 Marks released this four minute clip early and sent it out with their 9 Marks update. You can listen to the discussion between Dever and Leeman in, “Quick Take: What Should Churches Do About Coronavirus?”
