      I read this article. I am speechless.

      John Piper Urges Christians: ‘Get Vaccinated’ and Resist Right-Wing Pressure

      excerpts:

      “The people I have especially in view are those who are not vaccinated because of fear of being out of step with people they respect, and in step with people they don’t admire,” he writes. “My message to them is simple: You are free”

      Many Christians, he says, have resisted the vaccination due to fear of being considered out of step with their political allies. Such fear, he says, is unbiblical.

      “‘The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe’ (Proverbs 29:25). The fear of man lays a freedom-snatching snare. Why? Because the fearing soul is already snared. Already caught. Already bound, enslaved. I call you to something better. ‘For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery’ (Galatians 5:1). Not a government yoke, not an anti-government yoke. Not a left-wing yoke, not a right-wing yoke.

      “You are free to say with integrity, ‘My decision to be vaccinated is not a political decision. It is not right-wing or left-wing. It is a biblically informed act of love.’”

      I  will comment on this  later. Right now, like I said, I am speechless.

      Calvinists like John Piper don’t believe in free will. How could there be a choice in the first place? ;-)

      Joking aside, he is wrong.

      I stay away from John Mc Arthur, Piper, etc! No Holy Spirit allowed in their faith! No thank you! And than on top of it manipulative, wrong advice! Jesus come quickly!

      How myopic to think the decision is based on politics. I don’t know a single person who is unvaccinated because of political reasons.

      How about coining a new word: “Vaxolitical.”  That describes most governments at every level and some religious institutions.  It’s usage could go viral. :unsure: :yes: :whistle:

        Well better to take a jab at the government than the reverse. ;-)

            Wiser than Pfizer. ;-)

            A Moderna spurner can’t be an earner. Can you discern, uh?

            Hark! A Mark!
