This article will not be about the argument of safety or issues related to vaccines, or other exemptions under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms here in Canada it will deal only with the Word of God and what He has to say about vaccines and our responsibility as a Christian.
‘Know yet not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.’ 1 Corinthians 3:16-17. I have heard the claims from the pro-vaxxers that ‘anti-vaxxers’ as they like to refer to us, that this is a made-up argument that stemmed from the USA. The reality is that God’s Word was around long before the USA was even created. When you read this verse in the Word of God you must pause for a moment as they are rather strong words from God and cannot be overlooked or dismissed. Vaccines were not created when this was written either, however it covers that very point. Not only are we not to take vaccines but it comes with a warning that if you destroy your temple God will destroy you. Anything that could lead to destroying your body, such as questionable ingredients in the vaccine or the way in which they were produced or harvested. Were aborted babies used in the process? Which is forbidden in the word of God. Was stem cell research used? Or was animals used? Also, forbidden to be injected into your body? Often part of the vaccine may contain some of the virus or disease being injected into the body, that is clearly forbidden in this verse. The new RNA vaccine untested for the most part on humans and carries genetic codes, not allowed by God’s word. There are many other things that can defile the temple however all vaccines are a form of defiling the temple. The Lord gave us an immune system for a reason.
This may come as a surprise to even many Christians but you no longer own your body, Jesus does. You no longer have an opinion about what you do with that body or your life for that matter, you are now led by God and His Word. ‘What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.’ 1 Corinthians 6:19-20. It is none of your business when you live or when you die that is completely up to the Lord Jesus, it is our responsibility to do what He wants and understand His will for us here on earth. ‘I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live is the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who love me, and gave himself for me.’ Galatians 2: 20.
A few years back I had to go to the hospital and one of the nurses asked me about vaccines at first I didn’t want to say much as she was talking the other nurse started to talk about them as well. I was kind of watching just to see how far they would take it, after about a minute. I told them I do not take them for religious reasons. All conversations came to a screeching halt and the subject was changed.
As Christians we have a responsibility to God but we also have a responsibility to our children. Perhaps you should ask the Lord Jesus how He wants you to proceed. Should you allow your children to take vaccines? Today is a good day to start reading the bible.
Christians need to start using their religious exemptions for a lot of things, we have the legal right too here in Canada. They also need to be more concerned about what Jesus wants for them, rather than what the world wants for them. It is hard to notice any difference these days from a professing christian and non believers, this should not be so.
