Beth Moore tells those unwilling to get vaccinated 'For the love of God, put on a mask'

by Premier Journalist

With vaccines continuing to act as a significant point of political tension among Evangelicals, Bible teacher Beth Moore has encouraged those unwilling to get a vaccine to at least continue wearing a mask.

Beth Moore has become a more vocal proponent of political and cultural dialogues in recent years. The Christian author and Bible teacher created some waves in White Evangelical circles. In March 2021, Moore's decision to leave the Southern Baptist Convention was surprising for many conservative Evangelicals. 

Moore has been consistently vocal on race, sexual assault and anti-Trump politics, putting her in contention with much of the SBC's leadership.

Now the author is urging her 975,000 followers to respect those at risk. "If we are in Christ, it is unconscionable for us to in any way politicize this virus. What on earth are we doing???" she tweeted. "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!" 

"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."

And for Beth, that means being willing to wear a mask if you are not willing to get the vaccine.

Vaccine skepticism among White Evangelicals continues to be a regular trend. A PRRI study in July found that 24 per cent of White Evangelicals are still expressing skepticism about the acceptability of the vaccine.
