A longer sermon will be preached on this topic, looking at (A) Biblical examples of “Holy Misdirection” God blessed or commanded and (B) examples from Christian history showing Holy Misdirection as an accepted norm, but the following is JD’s “hot-take,” taken from his Facebook page and used as an op-ed (read more about that upcoming sermon here).

On Biden’s mandatory vaccine/testing mandates for “large” employers (covering 80 million Americans)…To be clear, this covers all federal employees, state employees, school districts, military personnel, and over half of employed Americans. Here are thoughts off the top:
1. It *will be* overturned by the Supreme Court, 100% odds. Requiring drug usage is not a power enumerated to the government in the U.S. Constitution. Biden is hoping the corporatocracy acts *before* the mandate reaches the court. Chances are (LISTEN TO ME) your employer will MOVE QUICkLY to implement his order.
2. It will be too late. Companies will begin to enforce this *before* the court rules.
3. Three ethical and godly options are available if you’re in this 80 million.
A) Be fired (DO NOT QUIT) so you can get in on class action lawsuits filed against your employer after the Supreme Court rules, for violating your civil rights.
B ) Use fake vaccination papers. As Doug Wilson says, “only use genuine fake vaccine papers.” These are available online. For more info, read this.
C) Get a fake vaccine by physicians willing to protect you from untested drugs. There are LOTS of doctors who will give you a “vaccine” to uphold their oath to “do no harm.”Both ( B) and (C) are acceptable under the biblical Christian ethic, of which I’ve said much and there is more to be said. Many biblical examples exist of righteous misdirection, including the Egyptian Midwives, Ehud’s “present,” Jael’s “hospitality,” and Rahab’s deceptions (mirroring that of people lying to Nazis while harboring Jews in their closets).
(4) We – the “conspiracy theorists” – warned you forced vaccinations was coming from DAY ONE. We were called “crazy, unhinged, tinfoil hatted,” etc for suggesting this was the left’s goal. There’s a lot of people who owe a lot of apologies.5) It is apparent the rushed (if not illegal) redefinition of Emergency Use Authorizations, it’s unconventional (if not illegal) designation of UAEs as “approved” by the FDA, and the CDC’s refusal to endorse any “treatments” used by frontline doctors (so as to allow the UAE’s to continue) show these organizations are not independent of the Biden Cabal. It’s collusion. Biden recently calling this a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” made the order predictable. Finally, *there is no sin in disobeying an unconstitutional order.* Not only is forced drugging unconstitutional, ***this is a violation of the 14th Amendment Equal Protection Clause by exempting “small” businesses but not large ones.***Meanwhile, several things:
A) ALL Christians/Patriots should be looking toward entrepreneurship, contracting, and self-employment for themselves and your kids. If you’re pushing your kids towards employment in the system (the “machine”) and not employment independence, you are not foreword thinking.
B ) Those federal mandate runs afoul of state law (like MT HB702). States now need to flex their power of federal nullification NOW. States must NOT submit to the feds on this or any other issue, except in our *actual* adherence to the U.S. Constitution. We are now back to 1840; state laws are supreme over federal laws.
C) Unions are pro-government, not pro-labor. Stop funding them with your paychecks and fight for right-to-work laws (looking at you, Montana).
And if you’re a Montanan, wait and see what Governor Gianforte will do and how he will protect us.
