Title

Letter from a Christian doctor: God gave us this vaccine. Let's use it

Description

Dr. Peter Mack, an Evangelical Christian doctor, wrote an article praising the COVID-19 vaccines, asking for the Evangelical community to view them as blessings from God. “God provided a tool to protect us,” Mack compares the vaccines to the Biblical stories of Egypt and its famine. He claims God used “human talent and hard work” through Joseph, and the David and Goliath, as God chose David to defeat Goliath rather than striking him down Himself. Dr. Mack also highlights skepticism of vaccines, explaining how fear has led to violence, including his experience of a small bomb having been thrown through his window after he expressed the need for the vaccines.
