Christians Should Use Fake COVID-19 Vaccine Certificates

It is certainly tempting to simply make the case by saying that a fake pandemic should have fake papers to accompany it, but that would be too easy, far too glib. I already have severe critics who struggle with their tendency to be censorious, and that would frankly not help. So I won’t start there[…]

So I am going to sketch where I believe we are in all this, and then I will conclude with seven principles to govern your possible use of fake IDs […]

Fourth, the ethics of the thing are clear enough, meaning that you can be right with God and use a fake vaccine ID. But that doesn’t mean you should risk going to the federal penitentiary in order to take your family to Disneyland. There are wisdom issues involved also, and so you should do a reasonable cost/benefit analysis with regard to whatever it is you are doing. But if nobody at the ball game cares about whether your ID is genuine or not, and they are just going through a formality at the gate, go ahead. You probably could use the practice.
