As Christian leaders continue to debate Covid, and we are seeing a world of vaxxers vs anti-vaxxers, Beth Moore has called on Christians to wear a mask in public.
The new world we are entering is clearly showing a distinction between those happy to be vaccinated, and those who won’t. From a Christian perspective, there is also the ministry leaders weighing in on what Christians should do.
Beth Moore, who is a known straight shooter, has called on Christians to, at worst, wear a mask in public.
“If we are in Christ, it is unconscionable for us to in any way politicize this virus. What on earth are we doing??? Our sides are not more important than lives. We are Jesus people called to serve sacrificially. For the love of God, we gotta love our neighbors. Even our enemies!
“For all our Jesus-talk, where on the ever loving earth is our Jesus-walk? If you are not a Christian, I’m not talking to you. But if you are, Jesus wasn’t playing when he called us to a whole different ethic from the world. We’re not loud mouth boasters. We’re servants. We SERVE.
“Stare in the face what some of you are saying: MY RIGHTS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR LIFE. SORRY, NOT SORRY. If you’re not going to get vaccinated, for the love of God, PUT ON A MASK IN PUBLIC PLACES WITH VULNERABLE PEOPLE.”

MY RIGHTS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR LIFE. SORRY, NOT SORRY.

Go ahead & unfollow me. I don’t care. FOLLOW JESUS.
No afraid of the social media backlash she is naturally expecting, she continued, “Go ahead & unfollow me. I don’t care. FOLLOW JESUS.”
Earlier this year, Moore quit the Southern Baptist Convention, stating that she could no longer identify with the group.
In an interview with Religion News Service today, Moore broke the news, and given she is a lifelong Baptist, it was not a decision made lightly.
“I am still a Baptist, but I can no longer identify with Southern Baptists,” she told RNS. “I love so many Southern Baptist people, so many Southern Baptist churches, but I don’t identify with some of the things in our heritage that haven’t remained in the past.”
Moore, who has opened up on the fact that she was sexually abused as a child, was also told by Californian pastor John MacArthur to “go home” in reference to the fact he believed women shouldn’t be preaching. “There is no Biblical case that can be made for a woman preaching; period,” he stated.
