Christians “working” for any government are suspect: after all, Leviathan pays them with stolen money. But they’re especially culpable when they serve a state as corrupt, cruel, and oppressive as the USSA’s.
Exhibit A: Dr. Francis Collins of the National Institutes of Health. Each time this bureaucrat touts himself as an “evangelical Christian,” my jaw not only drops, my gorge rises. How can anyone affiliated with the NIH claim to follow Jesus Christ? Especially after these last two years and the lies this agency has constantly spewed: “During the coronavirus pandemic, Collins has been on the front lines urging Americans to wear masks and get vaccinated. … the Biden administration has increasingly put Collins on network shows to urge vaccinations and defend the booster strategy.”
Endorsing and spreading falsehoods invalidates anyone’s “Christianity.” But that isn’t the extent of Collins’ evil. Long before COVIDCon, his agency promoted transgenderism, sodomy, and abortion. Collins has directed the NIH since 2009, so he’s had plenty of time to clean house—but somehow hasn’t. Indeed, “[d]uring his tenure [at the NIH], Collins had drawn the ire of anti-abortion groups that opposed his support of using fetal tissue in medical research, …” Can a “Christian” lead an organization that flouts numerous Biblical commands while housing articles that mock Scripture in its digital library?
You probably won’t be surprised to learn that Collins has sponged off taxpayers since 1984, when he joined the faculty at the University of Michigan. Stints at the National Human Genome Research Institute and the NIH followed. If our shyster harbors any scruples against theft, he easily subjugates them: “During Collins’ 12-year tenure, the NIH budget grew by 38 percent, from $30 billion in 2009 to $41.3 billion in 2021. Collins proposed a series of ambitious initiatives,” all on our dime.
Despite such wickedness, Collins “has spoken at length about his conversion from atheism to Christianity…”
One wonders why he bothered to convert, let alone speak about it (though perhaps he’s a plant. We know Our Rulers have had the plandemic on the drawing board for years; did they groom Collins as their envoy to the faithful?). Jesus Christ isn’t Lord of his life; rather, Collins shoe-horns his version of “Christianity” into his version of “science.” When the two conflict (and they will in this fallen world. Our sin beclouds our perceptions and measurements of Nature as well as our understanding of God’s designs and purposes therein), “science” always wins.
That goes double for the book he published in 2006, The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief.
Actually, what Collins presents are his doubts about the veracity of Holy Scripture.
The “editorial reviews” alone proclaim that the author is no Christian. Since when has the New York Slimes praised anything offering “proof” of God? Yet that commie rag gushes, “Collins’s argument that science and faith are compatible deserves a wide hearing. It lets non-churchgoers consider spiritual questions without feeling awkward.” The other critics include “Kenneth Miller, Brown University, author of Finding Darwin’s God” (hey, if Collins is a Christian, why not Darwin?) and “Archbishop Desmond Tutu”—yes, the Marxist who champions perverts and euthanasia.
Unlike the Slimes, Miller, and Poopoo, readers resent Collins’ betrayal of his alleged Lord: “The writer is openly a believer in evolution. At [sic] great part of the book is about his strong believe [sic] in evolution, and the ugly part is that he ‘drags’ God into the theory. …It is clear that he is an admirer of Charles Darwin.” Another remarked, “I was disappointed as I read on [sic] his dissertation that the Bible should not be taken literally. If you are going to pick apart the believability of the Bible, who decides what is truth and what is not?? He is taking what he knows of science and using that as his data base for what can be true in the bible. If you believe in God, as he states he does, then it would seem to follow that God’s word would be taken true over what he, a mere human, thinks is true……”
Amen! Meanwhile, remember that evolutionary theory cannot meet the definition of “science”: “systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation.” Since no one has observed animals mutating into distinct creatures, found any evidence thereof, or reproduced such results via experimentation, evolution is not nor ever will be scientific. It is instead a philosophy, even a religion, if you will, which has borne such poisonous fruit as eugenics and Nazism.
Unfortunately, a book didn’t exhaust Collins’ fanaticism. He also established “The BioLogos Foundation, a group that aims to reconcile religion and science and argues that God created the world through evolution.” If that’s the intention, BioLogos fails miserably. It doesn’t “reconcile” anything, preferring instead to denigrate the Bible. It hints at Scripture’s “limitations” and implies that sophisticates approach it with a “nuanced” reading that recognizes the Author’s benightedness on “science”: “If we just open the Bible … , we find lots of passages that contradict our beliefs and practice today: like the earth being set on pillars and the command not to wear clothing with two kinds of fabric.” Talk about taking chapters out of context! “And even in the New Testament we reinterpret … passages like the mustard seed being the smallest seed on earth and the frequent command to greet each other with a kiss.” Ditto.
“The Bible is a collection of sixty-six different books, written across a span of more than 1000 years by lots of different people in many different cultural settings.” Believers usually cite that as evidence of its divine origin, not a reason to discount it. “So understanding the meaning of the text is more complex than opening the latest English translation and reading the words. …
“God didn’t use Scripture to reveal scientific truths. We think a serious and faithful reading of the Bible doesn’t even address the science of evolution.”
This from a charlatan who confuses gene-therapy with “vaccines” and insists that a mask’s loose weave can capture an infinitesimally tiny virus.
I could continue, almost indefinitely: Collins is nothing if not voluble. And he’s been ubiquitous during COVIDCon, spouting one nauseating whopper after another: “…for somebody who’s a believer, [the Jab] is what you could call an answer to prayer. If we’ve all been praying to God to somehow deliver us from this terrible pandemic, and what happens is these vaccines get developed that are safe and effective, well, why wouldn’t you want to say, “Thank you, God” and roll up your sleeve?”
Then there’s his blasphemy in conflating the Gospel w/ the clot-shot: “But I think what we share as believers is this commitment as followers of Jesus that we want to share that good news with other people. And here’s a chance to share the good news in a different way.”
Nor does he hesitate to lie outright: “And [the Jab]’s been approved now by the FDA in full approval.” Or am I too harsh? Perhaps he really believes that. If so, he’s as ignorant as he is incompetent.
Finally, he urges wielding the State’s sword against those who disagree with him, directly contradicting the Prince of Peace he supposedly worships: “I think those who are intentionally spreading this kind of information [regarding COVIDCon] that they know to be false for some political or personal reasons, I really think they are the ones that we ought to be trying to track down and figure out, why are you doing this? And isn’t there some kind of justice for this kind of action? Isn’t this like yelling fire in a crowded theater? Are you really allowed to do that without some consequences?”
Why not, Frank? You certainly do.
