      Isaiah 8:

      19 When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?

      20 Consult God’s instruction and the testimony of warning. If anyone does not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn.

      21 Distressed and hungry, they will roam through the land; when they are famished, they will become enraged and, looking upward, will curse their king and their God.

      22 Then they will look toward the earth and see only distress and darkness and fearful gloom, and they will be thrust into utter darkness.

      Leviticus 19: 31 Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.

      Leviticus 20:6 I will set my face against anyone who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute themselves by following them, and I will cut them off from their people.

        Those scriptures sounded appropriate for Covid 19.

        If this is true- why did our wise forefathers and politicians continue to consult mediums with much success?

          Acts 8:9-13 9 Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great, 10 and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, “This man is rightly called the Great Power of God.” 11 They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his sorcery. 12 But when they believed Philip as he proclaimed the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. 13 Simon himself believed and was baptized. And he followed Philip everywhere, astonished by the great signs and miracles he saw.

          Deuteronomy 18:10-14 10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD; because of these same detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. 13 You must be blameless before the LORD your God. 14 The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so.

        If you are going to refer to your bible as a source of information please read leviticus 15 . 29-30 regarding a womans body and leviticus 25. 44-46 regarding ownership and treatment of your slaves.Sick and tired of christians picking quotes that suit them and ignoring the rest.

    Please put back a curfew for scooters from 10:00pm to 5:00am to protect the riders against themselves and more so allow us a few hours sleep before we have to go to work. Thanks

      curfew has nothing to do with the man being irresponsible, even if not his fault.
      what the heck was he doing at 1 am riding a bike.
      everyone knows how dangerous these are.
      can't stop fate when time is done.

    He was found on the road bleeding. So what is it that he hit or what or whom ran into him.If he was hit by a vehicle, the vehicle would sustain some type of damage.
