Is the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine Unethical?

"The question assumes a foundational biblical truth that is often pushed aside in these times: namely, that a Christian may not do evil that good may come out of it (Rom. 12:21). In a day when 'lesser of two evils' ethics and 'whataboutism' have upended Christian witness, with Christians affirming much that they previously denied in order to justify remaining loyal to their temporal tribes, we should be thankful, at least, when the right questions are asked." - Russel Moore

In an article about cell lines in vaccines he has to take a shot at any Christian stupid enough to have voted for that scumbag Donald Trump... get over it Russel.

I appreciate Russell Moore and the way he communicates. 

Tyler is a pastor in Olympia, WA and works in State government. He's the author of the book What's It Mean to Be a Baptist?

"The intuitions behind this question are good and sound. The question assumes a foundational biblical truth that is often pushed aside in these times: namely, that a Christian may not do evil that good may come out of it (Rom. 12:21). In a day when “lesser of two evils” ethics and “whataboutism” have upended Christian witness, with Christians affirming much that they previously denied in order to justify remaining loyal to their temporal tribes, we should be thankful, at least, when the right questions are asked. "

I put a bit of a spin on it to reflect what Russel Moore really means given the sum total of all the comments he has made over the years about Christians supporting Trump.
