In a REPUBLIC is having any sincere, deep-rooted religious, moral, or ethical objections to the odd quite fashionable notion of compelling neighbors to take any experimental drugs known as COVID-19 VACCINES still ETHICAL? Perhaps or possibility they still remember that the very definition of "vaccine" had to be changed last year for them to qualify as such, would that also be considered ETHICAL? I would also point out, that any RELIGION includes not just observance and practice, but also BELIEF. Beliefs that are sincerely held about what is right or wrong are intrinsic to the individual, not to any organized religion, mainstream or otherwise. I have come to understand these "vaccines" are false gods. They have been proven not to be safe or even effective. The fear induced rationale for taking them has been revealed to be FALSE. Rendering the notion that there is some public health rationale for their continued forced administration to be absurd. Even the CDC now admits that they don't stop infection or transmission, so they even don't work. Yet the dogma continues that the vaccines must be taken. Because the vaccines have come to represent good and this is faith, not ethical reason. Considering that only the bureaucratic elect from the NIH, CDC, and FDA are permitted to tell us what SCIENCE says. And noticing their continued ethical contradictions while moving the goalposts is never to be questioned. Truthful free thinking scientists are cast out and canceled as demonized heretics, for questioning their ever changing narrative. Anyone who goes against the vaccine cult's dogma is by definition a quack, even if months later what they have been pointing out breaks through due to its self-evident truth. Secular public officials have become cult high priests pronouncing that God wants you to get vaccinated, and there can be no religious objection to vaccination because some fearful recognized religious leaders have said it's OKAY. This religious leadership commands their flock to humbly submit to the supreme god of the COVID cult are deemed legitimate. Bottom line a house divided cannot stand: One America is a major insurance company with total assets of $74 BILLION, holding data and actuarial tables going back 145 years. Their CEO, Scott Davison, made this startling announcement: working age Americans in the 18–64 age bracket are dying in unprecedented numbers? As more Americans are now dying SINCE the vaccine than ever BEFORE? Their business edge or life blood is ACCURATE DATA about deaths, now their odds have shifted. An aberration? Prudential insurance had a 87% increase in death benefits paid comparing the third quarter 2020 to the third quarter 2021. Pacific Life and Annuity had claims rise by over 80%. Normally in the three card monte of the insurance game, the house always wins. Do we submit to the noble truths of the new BIO SECURITY STATE that promises us bubble wrap safety, while censoring all dissenters? Finally we are either in solidarity with medical political authoritarian tyranny or we stand for the freedoms derived by our God sanctioned ethical morality. In the Lord's freedom always...warrior on
Taking into consideration that I’m writing on a Bible-based Christian site, and out of respect for its patrons, I will refrain from any political opinions or undertones. There are many other sites where it would be more appropriate to express my political views on this subject. Having spent the last 28 years in the healthcare field, I can unequivocally say that vaccines are safe and save lives by stopping the spread of disease, by preventing illness and health complications among the most vulnerable among us. I can not find anything in the Bible (explicit or implicit) saying that vaccines (or any other medical interventions) should not be used by a follower of Christ. While on Earth, Jesus spent most of His time healing the sick. He healed a blind man using mud mixed with saliva and sent him to wash his eyes to receive his sight (John 9:1, 6, 7). In the case of King Hezekiah, God chose to heal him through a fig mixture (2 Kings 20:5-7; Isa 38:21). Naaman was healed of leprosy by washing seven times in the River Jordan (2 Kings 5:10-14). In all these instances, God asked for man’s participation in the act of healing while using available remedies. In my humble opinion, vaccines are no different. The Bible teaches that our bodies are not our own, and we are accountable to God for how we care for them. Taking advantage of the modern medical miracles in maintaining a healthy body that God can use to His glory is a responsibility that every Christian should take seriously (1 Cor 10:31; 3 John 1:2). Getting plenty of rest, drinking lots of water, eating healthy foods, seeking medical care when unwell, and getting vaccinated will give glory to God and help us live a happier and more fulfilling life.
I love what a retired M.D. and Medical Educator, Dr. Terrill Wade, who gives presentations to Christian groups, writes articles, and sporadically maintains 2 blogs, 1 of which is newmedinfo.com (currently concerning Covid-19 vaccines) said: Bringing the pandemic to a quicker end: Finally, making use of vaccination is the fastest way to shut down the production of the new variants which prolong, or worsen, an epidemic. It is important to understand that the number of new mutations which arise in a disease virus is directly related to the number of times that the virus can infect a new body and make new copies of itself. A virus makes millions of copies of itself within every single infected body, and as part of each new copy, it will make some mistakes called mutations. Think of these mutations as the unintended text words you sometimes send on your phone because the autocorrect has played tricks. "The more people who become infected by the spread of the disease, the more chances the virus has to make new copies with new errors, and the more mutations will inevitably arise in these copies. Many of these mutations will not matter but some of them, totally by chance, may cause the virus to have a higher rate of spread, more disease severity, or increased resistance to the current vaccine." Think of the variants, Delta, and especially OMICRON here. If we can get more people vaccinated fully, the spread will stop! NOW they are just starting to get more deaths from Omicron patients that have been hospitalized. IF you are NOT vaccinated, the chances are SEVENTEEN TIMES HIGHER that you end up in the hospital!* Even "mild" asymptomatic cases have had long-term complications like brain fog, migraine, and fatigue! --Again, even "mild" cases of Omicron can result in long covid; which can include cognitive impairment, chronic fatigue, etc. I know most of us by far are sick of this long-lasting pandemic, so here is our chance of doing something about it!
