My middle son, who is a researcher, and I exchange updates about COVID-19, conspiracy theories and misinformation. He sent me another interview of Francis Collins in which he shared the same hopeful information and counsel as contained in his interview with Russell Moore.
Churches that turn COVID-19 restrictions into a “freedom of worship issue” will not be forgiven easily by a culture having lost 290,000 from COVID, which breaks down to 23,727 in Texas.
With a continuing downward trend away from the Christian faith in America—1 in 4 now identify as active in their church—making COVID a political issue will only drive folks further away from the gospel.
We need to listen with our head and our heart to Francis Collins as he shares the hope and the need to continue restrictions that can save lives.
