Christian singer Danny Gokey posted a lengthy Twitter thread at the end of August explaining not only why he’s opposed to vaccination mandates but also voicing his concerns the “mark of the beast,” as it’s described in the book of Revelation, could be on the horizon.
The “Jesus People” singer — who is vaccinated against COVID-19 — said people shouldn’t be forced to get inoculated against the virus if they don’t want to, calling out many in the government and news media who tout it as “a cure” when it’s not.
He also lamented the fact that people no longer have conversations because “the only topic discussed is COVID and the only acceptable thought is vaccination,” a phenomenon he described as “very dangerous.”
“The fact that I’m even talking about this comes at a great cost to me,” Gokey wrote. “I could be identified as an extremist and my music get pulled down from radio and other platforms because of this. People are threatening my livelihood, saying they won’t buy my music and won’t stream it. Some want to cancel me for asking questions and are even calling out my Christianity because I post these questions.”
“They tell me, ‘Jesus would get the vaccine,’ which is manipulative,” he continued. “Scripture says that He healed everyone that came in contact with him. Jesus did not run away from people who had diseases but ran to them to heal them. He didn’t divide and demonize anyone. Although he did rebuke those in power who were controlling people and those who forced burdens on them. He was confident in God’s love and never walked in fear of anything.”
