WWJD? He Would Get the Damn Vaccine

“In the Book of Matthew, Jesus is asked: ‘Master, which is the great commandment in the law?’ He answers: ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.’ But the second admonition, Jesus adds, ‘is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.’

Think about that. ‘All the law,’ Jesus says. All his teachings flow from two simple ideals: Loving your Lord and loving your neighbor.”

WWJD? If he were alive today, unlike most evangelicals who claim to follow him, he would set a good example by getting the COVID vaccine.

The core of the teachings of the Gospels, and indeed the entire Bible, can be distilled into two all-encompassing commandments: Love God and love your neighbor.

Evangelicals believe that Jesus was 100% man and 100% God, and thus he was susceptible to viruses and bacteria that bedevil humankind, if vaccines were available during his time, he would have been first in line to get a jab. The Lord would scoff at the “Jesus is my vaccine” mentality of modern-day evangelicals.

If evangelicals respected the teaching of the Gospels, they would demonstrate that they love the Lord and their neighbors by getting the COVID vaccine.

But evangelicals have contempt for the truth of the Bible and enmity for their neighbors, and they exhibit this evil spirit by putting their community at risk of illness and death by refusing to get vaccinated.  

Evangelical ministers are too afraid of alienating their congregations and refuse to preach that being a good Christian and a solid citizen requires their followers to get vaccinated.

Evangelicals are proof positive that sin will never be vanquished, but viruses can be overcome with vaccines.

Do the right thing, and get vaccinated!
