Whether someone should get vaccinated. That is a personal decision, and individuals should weigh the potential benefits against the risks.
However, we are committed to helping families make educated decisions about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. That is why late last year, Focus President Jim Daly interviewed two doctors about the COVID-19 vaccine to address practical concerns the many may have as well as whether the vaccines were ethically developed. You can watch or listen to the interview here.
Over the past year, millions of Christians have been concerned and outraged by some governmental authorities who have placed severe, and sometimes seemingly unnecessary, restrictions on worship. With vaccine passports on the way, many may feel even more at odds with a government that is supposed to exist to serve them. But this struggle is nothing new.
Over the course of the 2,000-year history of the church, Christians have grappled with how or whether to obey governments that turn hostile to their beliefs.
Focus on the Family believes in the importance of social responsibility, and that God has ordained the family, church, and government for our good. But the conflict that can occur between Christians and government is a good remind that for believers, this world is not our permanent home. “The world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:17, ESV) From The Daily Citizen.
