23. They deny their God, those who reject the means made by men made in the

They deny their God, those who reject the means made by men made in the image and likeness of their God.
They fail to see the healing grace of wisdom and knowledge in vaccines.

They claim the creation is a gift of the creator and yet reject the cures made available by the minds, hands and resources within that gift.

The same people who will donate their mortal remains to the benefit of others, reject the donations made available to them by the other.

Serious failures of fact, logic and morality lead to seeing and fearing the snake in the grass.
Rational embrace of fact, logic and morality reveals the mistake of projecting a snake upon the reality of the lanyard on the lawn.
