Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we are both required and capable of living by truth but never by lies irrespective of the circumstances we are in.
Regrettably, during the height of the pandemic, Evangelical leaders, Russell Moore, Timothy Keller and Rick Warren just to name a few, collaborated with the former National Institutes of Health Director, Francis Collins, to push the government mRNA vaccine agenda. They told us that if we obey God’s command to love our neighbors as the Good Samaritan, we must wear masks, close our churches and take the jab. Failing to do so was not a political or scientific matter, but a deliberate rebellion against God Himself.
Giving them the benefit of the doubt that they simply were conned, we can forgive them. But now that the truth has come out, where are they?
… Those who are given more knowledge and enlightenment from God can knowingly forfeit the grace given to them and misuse their responsibilities. Like the priest and Levi in the parable of the Good Samaritan, today those Evangelical leaders walk by us silently, pretending nothing has befallen us. They told us to be Good Samaritans, but they lack both the integrity and courage to dress our wounds. More than that, those leaders actually share the liability for our falling into the hands of evil men. Shouldn’t they be held more accountable than the priest and Levi for their lack of action?
… I believe the only way for us to redeem the terrible situation we are in is to break our silence, to expose the lies and to resist. This crisis is also a window of opportunity for us to rise above the limitation defined by our culture and do the right thing.
