At what point?

‘A Rant’


At what point do we say that enough is enough?

At what point do we decide that the line has been crossed?

Is it when we are told cover our faces?

Is it when we are ordered to stay in our houses?

Is it when we are told we can not fellowship?

Is it when we are told that we must comply in order to eat?

Is it when we are no longer at liberty to live?


At what point will we discern what is dangerous, what is tyrannical, what is unethical, and manipulative?

At what point will we realize that there are powers at work beyond what we see, and are told?

Even Daniel disobeyed when the orders defied God.

“Now when Daniel learned that the document had been signed, he went into his house, where the windows of his upper room opened toward Jerusalem, and three times a day he got down on his knees, prayed, and gave thanks to his God, just as he had done before.”

Daniel 6:10

Even Jesus and the disciples continued to preach when the authorities ordered them to stop.

“Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John replied, “Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to listen to you rather than God.”

Acts 4:18-19

So while we are to submit to governing authorities, there is a time when enough is enough.

So I ask you, when is it enough?

Is it here yet?

  1. I’m glad I didn’t overlook this post; well said! You stated the concerns and vented the frustrations of many, but without malice. These are all excellent questions. My only answer so far is, I believe that this ‘point’ is different for each individual!
    For me it was the masks. My opinion: Do Not force people to do this, America is a free country! I feel like it’s a negative step toward government control, though at the same time, I do think that our president has done what he thought was for the best during this time. So I have some mixed feelings there.
    As soon as the mask mandate started here in Ohio, I refused to go anywhere. I started utilizing online shopping, and my husband and I have dined out I believe three times in 2020. So, to be fair, I abhor wearing a mask- but I also try to avoid situations where I have to. I would never get belligerent with a customer service worker who was just doing their job; I just hate it.
    That being said, I do have to wear one occasionally bc errands have to be run. And like everyone else, I do what I have to do!

    1. I agree. What bothers me most is the lack of choice we were given in the matter. To hand out fines, or refuse to let people get groceries without a mask is insane. The government is definitely getting to a point of overstepping, not just with this, but with things to come as well. Although, I do believe if enough people believed in liberty in America, this wouldn’t have happened. I wouldn’t take it out on the workers either, though I have been tempted, I have to remember they are just trying to make a living. Like you said, we’re all doing what we have to do.

      Thanks for the read, have a blessed day!

      Also, did you figure out how to link your blog? I was thinking about it, and I wonder, are you adding tags to your posts?

      1. Oh, good! Tagging is simple once you find it, but I really think it’ll be beneficial for helping people find you! I would recommend looking up how to do it on google, as I would make it sound more complicated than it is hah!
