John MacArthur of Grace Community Church has said that he does not believe there is a pandemic based on CDC numbers, observing that only 6% of people die from the novel coronavirus absent comorbidities, and revealing that no one from Grace Church has been sick with it so far despite being open for over a month.
“A rather telling report came out this week and for the first time we heard the truth. The CDC, the center for disease control, which is a national organization- government organization that is, to report to us truth about disease, said that.
In truth, 6% of the deaths that have occurred can be directly attributable to COVID. 94% cannot. Of the 160,000 people that have died, 9210 actually died from COVID. There is no pandemic.

Clip from August 30 Sermon
And that’s what you’ve been thinking. We have the responsibility I think as spiritual leaders, to be patient until the truth emerges. We’ve all been suspicious of the fact that we’ve been meeting together now for weeks and weeks and weeks and we don’t know anyone who’s ill. Nobody in our congregation has ever been to the hospital with this.
It’s clear to us the fabrication of numbers, because they’re including people who have had 2 or 3 co-morbidities, we know all of that. We know there are reasons for this that have nothing to do with the virus.
MacArthur turns his attention to the real provocateurs of these lies.
There’ another virus loose in the world and it’s the virus of deception and the one who’s behind the virus of deception is the arch-deceiver Satan himself.
And it’s not a surprise to me that in the midst of all his deception, the great effort that is going on is to shut down churches that preach the gospel. So this is not a political speech by the way. But it does not surprise me that they want to shut dowb those who preach the gospel, cause the architects of this level of deception are not a part of the kingdom of heaven, they are apart of the kingdom of darkness.
Deception is Satan’s stock and trade, and he is the god of this world and he uses deception every possible way he can.
