Christianity is not a “religion” of “values” it is a relationship and is based on truth not values. Feel free to disagree. 

Are the Ten Commandments not values? We’re Christ’s teachings not of values to hold yourself to? I’m confused now lol

Do not choose to be common but uncommon.  Seek opportunity not security.  Do not wish to be kept a citizen and have the state look after you.  You should take a calculated risk.  Dreams result in building.  You may fail once but you will always succeed.  Never cower to a master or bend to a threat.”
 

Here’s a mask quote for you!!

Excerpt from Common Sense, written in 1776 by Thomas Paine

I do not choose to be a common man.
It is my right to be uncommon … if I can.
I seek opportunity … not security.
I do not wish to be a kept citizen,
Humbled and dulled by having the State look after me.
I want to take the calculated risk,
To dream and to build. To fail and to succeed.
I refuse to barter incentive for a dole;
I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence;
The thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of Utopia.
I will not trade freedom for beneficence
Nor my dignity for a handout
I will never cower before any master
Nor bend to any threat.
It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid;
To think and act for myself,
To enjoy the benefit of my creations
And to face the world boldly and say:
This, with God’s help, I have done.
All this is what it means to be an Entrepreneur.

I get your point, but masks are not mentioned, only the freedom to be free from Government security.(Masks, if you will)

Well documented version? Are you really that blind to believe what a history book tells you. You should really research. For example, funny you mentioned the constitution. Other than the year of Lord, can you fine ONE mention of God, Jesus and/or Christianity.

You should also fact check this quote

The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.”
—John Adams

Or go back to believing obvious propaganda about our founding fathers. 

And I ask you where I said it was founded on the Christian religion?  There are Christian principles in the constitution.  I merely defended the principles of Christianity.  You were saying the founders weren’t Christlike, I just said that Christians can make stupid decisions and aren’t perfect.  But history does tell you the biggest portion of the framers believed in higher power, mostly God.

Could you tell me which section of Common Sense that excerpt is from? I do have my own copy of that pamphlet and can’t seem to locate it -  Just give me the title of the section. That excerpt sounds more like something from Dean Alfrange’s poem, but he could have taken it from Paine.

Values? Maybe more like virtues. they were given to the Jews not only to Christians, Jesus actually raised the bar in His teachings (Sermon on the Mount) ie: hate = murder 

Hold ourselves to? If one could hold themselves to them, what need would we have for a savior?

They are Commandments

A mask is not going to prevent anyone from dying.  You can still catch the Wuhan even while wearing a mask.  The Wuhan is not going to kill everybody, otherwise it would be a much higher percentage now of deaths they would be in the 10's of millions.  I only properly wear a mask when I'm at work for only about 25% of the time that I am there.  If I'm not around someone or I'm 6 feet away from them in the BOH I don't properly wear it.  I would say I've worn a mask maybe 1% or less since this started.  I have yet to contract the virus.  If masks were so effective why were they not required from the beginning instead of 3 months into it ?  If you feel a mask is going to protect you, then you have a false sense of security with their effectiveness, just as gloves are not foolproof.

It’s Dean’s, I was to lazy to cut the top off. But I’m sure you already knew that.

I’m just saying that if he’s only wearing his mask 25% of the time then I don’t think I’d want to eat there. There’s no telling what he and his coworkers are contaminating.

They are Commandments 

Some of them are values and some are virtues. So because we can’t hold ourselves completely to it we shouldn’t try?? What good is being commanded “virtues” if there is no way to uphold it?  You are purposely being a contrarian for no reason.

#### for you and flu season. 
 

side question, if masks work for influenza type viruses like covid then why don’t we all wear one every flu season?
