During this virus epidemic we can use all the help that we can get from wherever we can get it. There is a Bible passage that speaks directly to the order concerning social distancing.

Here it is as found in Romans chapter 13:

“1. Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.” Romans 13:1-2
