Here is another short take Christian worldview with David. We what is the point of getting the vaccine.

If it doesn't fully protect you from getting the virus or variance of the virus, or allow you to live normally I think was disappointing is that some prominent evangelical leaders have come out in favor of this worldview of getting the vaccine and therefore you're going to be safe. Franklin Graham Senna, Billy Graham, the head of Samaritans purse Road in a Facebook post on which there were 26,000 comments. He wrote something about this. The vaccine encouraging people to get the vaccine. He said the Internet is full of articles series data and opinions concerning the Cova 19 vaccines, both positive and negative, and by the last cut of the topic were doing today. This only different articles theory dated opinions on everything in life today yeah how do you know what the truth is he goes out is going to say there's a lot out there for you to read. I have been asked my opinion about the vaccine by the media and others I have even been asked of Jesus were physically walking on earth. Now, would he be an advocate for vaccines. My answer was that based on the parable of the good Samaritan in the Bible.

I would have to say yes.

I think Jesus would advocate for people using vaccines and medicines to treat suffering and save lives. Now notice how the is a little sleight-of-hand here went from talking about the covert vaccine to to equating that with other vaccines and medicines that's not really the question here. I think most everyone believes in certain vaccines and and medicines to to help people who are suffering and save lives is that this covert vaccines a little different than that it's not really truly a vaccine. It's a a gene technology is a gene therapy never had a quote unquote vaccine like this. No one really knows how this is going to impact people on on a widespread basis. He goes on to say in this Scripture passage about the good Samaritan. Jesus told about a man beaten and wounded, lying on the road side as religious leaders passed by, and didn't help, but a Samaritan considered a social outcast of the day becomes the hero of the story when he stops and cares for the injured man pouring oil and wine which were the top medicines of the day on the man's wounds. We also know that Jesus went from town to town healing every disease and sickness. He came to save life to offer us eternal life to Jesus need to vaccine himself, of course not. He is God's. And one more paragraph year from Franklin Graham.

So my personal opinion is that from what we know. A vaccine can help save lives and prevent suffering and I would say that we don't know that we we don't know how much the vaccine is saving lives according to the Dr. Peter McCullough we had last week. The vaccine doesn't really help that much.

It doesn't even necessarily guarantee you're not going to get covert nets with the CDC is saying about going to Canada Samaritans purse. He goes on to say, is operated Cova 19 emergency field hospitals and we have seen the suffering firsthand.

I also have staff and their family members who contracted the virus and spent weeks on a ventilator in months hospitalized as a result I don't want anyone to have to go through that. Now let me just interject again. This is why early treatment is so key you do not want to get to the point of having to go to a hospital and getting on a ventilator for months on end vaccines have worked for polio, smallpox, measles of the flu and so many other deadly diseases, why not for this virus and again I would insert because this is not the same kind of vaccines as those other vaccines is a completely different one. It's a vaccine that doesn't make you inoculated from the virus of Cova 19 since there are different vaccines available. My recommendation is that people do their research.

Talk to their doctor and pray about it to determine which vaccine, if any, is right for them. My wife and I have both had the vaccine at 68 years old. I want to get as many more miles out of these old bones as possible. Again, that's Franklin Graham. He makes the point of the end to do your research. Talk here's the thing is that people do not know where to find truth on these issues of the day. Even if you're a believer and you think you have good discernment. People don't know which sources to go to to try to determine what to think about things or what to do in life that I think Franklin Graham is a good man.

I'm not trying to disparage him his character. Anyways, rainbow for the gospel and in many other ways.

But this poster think is very representative of people. This not knowing what to do in the case adding to the confusion.
