Unbiblical: Masks for COVID

TL;DR: It is not Biblical for anybody except a specific kind of leper to wear a face covering. God isn’t dumb and knows COVID would happen.

The Claim

“Wearing masks is Biblical because of the sickness laws in Leviticus.”

Leviticus 13:45

And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and his head bare, and he shall put a covering upon his upper lip, and shall cry, Unclean, unclean. 

What the passage says

The entire chapter of Leviticus 13 is about laws regarding leprosy, a disfiguring and mildly contagious infection. It is self-defining and reads plainly.

Leviticus 13:42-46 describes the procedure for handling the most severe leper, which is a leper with an infection causing baldness in the face or head. If someone is bald and gets leprosy, described earlier in the chapter, they’re fine. If they go bald because of the disease, then only are they to do what Leviticus 13:45 commands.

Nowhere is there a bridge statement that expands the rules in Leviticus 13 to other people than described in 42-46.

The leper in Matthew

In Matthew 8:2-4 Jesus heals a leper.

2And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

3And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

4And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

In Matthew 8:4, Jesus commands the leper to do what Moses said to do in Leviticus 14, the rules for the leper after his cleansing. That involves some animal sacrifice and ritual, but it’s important to note that Jesus didn’t say that the sacrifice will make him clean, but only to do the cleansing ritual for a testimony to the priests. Jesus made him clean in Matthew 8:3.

Jesus also heals other lepers.

Nowhere in the NT does the law in Leviticus 13:45 expand to everyone.

Final Argument

It is not Biblical for anybody except a specific kind of leper to wear a face covering.

Healthy people have no business wearing a mask in a normal setting.

COVID is fake and gay, as pushed by the Jewish media. “What is their goal?” was my question in early 2020. Now late in the year: probably the Great Reset, whatever that is. Globohomo for everyone, at the end of a gun or as the Jews prefer: starvation through denial of access to foodstuffs.
