(ChurchLeaders) Albert Mohler says he is comfortable taking the COVID vaccine when it becomes available. But he also understands why some, especially Christians, may hesitate to roll up their sleeves when the time comes. In an article that is part praise for the vaccine and part admonishing caution in its distribution, Mohler argues the vaccine should not present a moral dilemma to Christians. In fact, taking the vaccine falls under the category of loving one’s neighbor.
“I will take this vaccine as soon as it is available to me,” Mohler writes in “Vaccines and the Christian Worldview: Principles for Christian Thinking in the Context of COVID,” posted yesterday to his website. “I will take it not only for what I hope will be the good of my own health, but for others as well.”
