‘This virus ain’t that serious’: The fallacy of relativism and urgency of truth

Young people are becoming seriously ill from coronavirus. According
to a new federal study, up to 20 percent of people hospitalized with the
disease in the US are between the ages of twenty and forty-four.

This is especially urgent news given that many young adults seem not to be as concerned about the disease as they should be.

One young man who is partying in Miami for spring break told a reporter, “If I get corona, I get corona.

Great Depression, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” He

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
