Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we start by discussing some of the problems with “Big Eva,” the large industry at work within evangelicalism. While the people at the top of these institutions remain true to some biblical beliefs, like the biblical definition of gender, they have strayed into the trap of social justice on other issues like systemic racism. This was demonstrated after Francis Collins resigned from his position as head of the NIH. Although Collins identifies as a Christian, he oversaw horrific experiments involving stem cells from babies from terminated pregnancies, something no Christian should support. Despite this, many figures in Big Eva praised Collins and his work, including David French, Tim Keller, and Russell Moore. Then, we talk about a new article from John Piper about vaccines. Piper eventually comes to the correct conclusion that the COVID vaccine is a matter of Christian liberty, but along the way he seems to reveal his true thoughts that everyone should be vaccinated.
