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.

And it comes from God. It's not a Jewish thing per se. It's a Judeo-Christian, biblical thing ... in every place in the Bible where it talks about the festivals, or the feasts of the Lord, it says, 'These are the feasts of the Lord.'
This article is not meant to attack young people struggling with deep-seated gender confusion. To the contrary, it is meant to expose the attack on these young people.
To be totally candid, it's as if a spirit of madness has descended on our society targeting the youth in particular. It's as if reality has been turned upside down and truth no longer matters—or even exists. And it is downright heartbreaking to witness.
I have been warning against the trajectory of LGBTQ activism since 2004, and over these years, I have talked with countless parents and spouses and siblings, many of them weeping as they shared their stories. But recently, after speaking to several thousand Christians in Franklin, Tennessee, the accumulation of stories I heard was overwhelming.
