Re: Why Would God Create Coronavirus?
According to Gen 2:1-2, God completed the current cosmos with all of its forms of life, matter, and energy in six days and then took a break on the seventh day.
All the other days of creation were bounded by an evening and a morning; but the seventh day wasn't bounded, it's open-ended; which tells me that God has been on sabbatical ever since then and hasn't created anything new for the current cosmos in all this time, so all of nature's virus species, in one form or another, have always been here.
● Ecc 1:10 . . Is there anything of which one can say: "Look! This is something new." It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time.
Anyway, we could ask the OP's question about lots of other things in nature too like toad stools, poison ivy, lightening, rattlesnakes, scorpions, avalanches, thorns, swamp water, quicksand, tornadoes, typhoons, hurricanes, cactus needles, tsunamis, Carrington events, UV light, gamma rays, rip tides, the vacuum of space, earthquakes, fire, lava, lead, cadmium, and arsenic and hemlock.
Those things can be hazardous, yes, but they were all created to fit into the natural scheme of things; and God pronounced them all just as much "very good" as He pronounced everything else.
The problem isn't coronavirus nor any other virus for that matter. The real problem is humanity's mortality. Once that's remedied, then all those hazards will become curiosities instead of threats to public health and safety.
