Increasing numbers of parents are finding plenty of arguments against vaccination, including the reality that vaccines go against what the Bible says and what God wants for His creation. In this article, Danielle sheds some light on why Christians may want to rethink vaccines, and why it is essential to protect our religious freedoms.
Most parents don’t even think about questioning the modern medical care system. You have a baby; you get vaccines and whatever treatments your doctor says he needs.
But how about investigating the arguments against vaccination? Is society’s current paradigm what Christians are called to follow? Does the Bible even talk about vaccines?
I would argue that yes, the Bible talks about pharmaceuticals, trusting in man, the holiness of our bodies, keeping our hearts and hands clean, and what happens when God’s creation is altered in depth.
And that, my friends, touches on the issue of vaccines.
How did vaccines get on the scene?
The very basic premise that began the notion of needing vaccines is called “the germ theory.”
In the mid-1800’s, Louis Pasteur developed the “germ theory,” the idea that germs are the cause of all disease. He then developed pasteurization, a way to heat food and kill microbes that may cause illness or disease. But, pasteurization also kills beneficial bacteria and enzymes.
His contemporary, Antione Beauchamp, came out with an opposite theory called the “terrain theory.” This theory highlights that healthy food, hygiene, and lifestyle affect a person’s terrain or immune system.
Interestingly, it’s widely accepted that Pasteur said on his deathbed that Beauchamp was right, “it’s all about the terrain.” However, the germ theory flourished and is still accepted today. It is what our modern medical system, and vaccines, are based on.
What does the Bible say about vaccines? Biblical arguments against vaccination
Aren’t vaccines saving lives? We are only using the wisdom God has given us, right?
The Bible contains stories showing how God’s people relied on their own wisdom to do what was good in their own eyes, only to find out they hadn’t asked their Heavenly Father what He thought.
The golden calf (Exodus 32-34), King David (1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings), and King Solomon (1 Kings) come to mind. But vaccines? Where does it talk about that?
Let’s explore some verses that may bolster the arguments against vaccination for Christians.
God doesn’t make mistakes
“And God saw that it was good.” [Not one but four times] Genesis 1:10, 1:12, 1:18, 1:25
Let’s start at the beginning, when God created the Heavens and the earth, and then he created Adam and Eve.
Did God create Adam and then realize He made a mistake? Did He miss something in the immune system? Do we really think we can improve on His creation?
That sounds more like pride rather than wisdom to me. God stated that His creation was “good” four times, not just one.
His good is just that – entirely good, without blemish.
Human nature is to want to improve on things. We think that we can make things easier and better for ourselves (remember how the tower of Babel turned out?). But the Bible is clear that God has it down – and doesn’t need our help.
Abortion is an integral part of the vaccine industry
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Psalm 139:13
The Bible makes clear that life begins at conception. It says that every child is a gift from God (Psalm 127:3). If Jesus were here today, I am not sure if He would be carrying a sign, but we can agree He would be pro-life.
Many are surprised to find that in fact, vaccines do contain aborted fetal tissue, including lung and kidney tissue.
This is because scientists grow live vaccines in living tissue. You can find aborted fetal tissue in 23 total vaccines, including:
- Hep A and B
Today, many pro-vaccine Christians will convince themselves that aborted fetal cells in vaccines is just a sad part of the history of vaccine creation, as these “designer cell lines” (one of the names given to make them sound innocuous) were derived from elective abortions in the 60s. However, there is evidence that this is an ongoing practice.
Even more concerning are the implications of using cells from fetuses, as DNA fragments in vaccines have been implicated in autism spectrum disorders, as well as increasing gender identity disorders.
Vaccines contain DNA from animals too
“For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life.” Leviticus 17:11
Consider that God forbade His holy people to drink blood, eat blood, or even mix it with certain other sacrifices.
He explains in Leviticus 17 that the life of the animal is in its blood, and thus is what atones them from their sacrifice, pointing to the ultimate Atonement, Jesus.
Yet, we find that there are animal by-products in vaccines. Not only are vaccines contaminated with DNA fragments from aborted fetuses, but also from animals, as they are grown in things like monkey and dog kidneys.
Vaccines contain ingredients that assault the body God created
“Don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit?” 1 Corinthians 6:19
These ingredients include carcinogens, neurotoxins, animal viruses, animal blood, allergens, and heavy metals. These ingredients can cause serious harm and even death to the body.
But the vaccine industry gets a free pass to include them in vaccines in the name of “health.”
Vaccines are man-made
“Stop trusting in mere humans, who have but a breath in their nostrils. Why hold them in esteem?” Isaiah 2:22
We all know and have our own stories about how hard it is to trust in God in difficult times.
But, we have to trust Him. As Christians, we believe He is sovereign. He knows all. He sees all.
We have to believe that He has our best in mind (Jeremiah 29:11) because He does. We are called to be in this world, but not of it. And that often means going against the grain, walking the narrow path, and seeking His will alone. This applies to our relationships, our words, our work, our actions, and yes, our health decisions.
We should never make decisions out of fear
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
The fear created by overzealous vaccine campaigns is real. Those advertisements are designed to provoke an emotional response, to make you fear your child becoming sick.
However, when we make decisions due to fear, we miss out on hearing from God about what He wants for our lives. When we instead trust His perfect design, we can make decisions from a place of education, with a sound mind, and empower ourselves to make healthy choices for our kids.
It is essential to protect religious vaccine exemptions
As Christians, there are plenty of arguments against vaccinations that are supported by biblical truth. Sadly, some states have already removed religious exemptions from vaccines, and still others have also removed vaccine exemptions based on philosophical beliefs, leaving parents to rely on doctors willing to support a medical exemption, which are hard to come by.
That means that parental freedoms and choices are limited, and children may not be able to attend public school without receiving vaccines that may violate a parent’s religious beliefs.
Vote your conscience and learn what your representatives believe about parental rights when it comes to vaccines.
Sadly, exemption for religious reasons is not an option in MS. We homeschool our children, but they will eventually need to attend college.
There aren’t any doctors here that will sign off for medical exemptions either. I’ve been asking for years. They all “believe” the pharmaceutical & vaccinaton companies’ hype.
I had all natural births, don’t use any meds, nor cleaners, personal care products, or even makeup that contain carcinogenic, synthetic, or toxic products.
Do you have any suggestions on how to avoid the vaccine requirement in MS once our children reach college age?
Maybe attend college out of state? Pray things change before your children reach that age? Vote in such a way as to create that change. And consider alternative schooling options- apprenticing, online schooling, etc.
Richard Dolesh says
Amen!! There are a ton of things that ANY one of us can do to stop and even reverse our rights as Americans. If you ask God, he will give you direction. Consider:
Do what you can, to influence those in your life.
Making a meeting with whoever will listen at your school or board, Educate them the irrefutable facts of vaccine dangers but more importantly, Nutrition alone will do more offensively than vaccines will do defensively.
– Watch and give out copies of the movie ‘Vaxxed’ by Andrew Wakefield.
– Try to comprehend, freedom of choice, freedom from vacinnes… In fact just watching Vaxxed is perhaps the best way to quickly ramp up on what one can do to help bring about change!
This link is a videotaped deposition on YouTube of Stanley Plotkin admitting to using aborted fetal cells in vaccines. I think another poster also provided a link
Explaining that they also experimented on orphans. If you attack someone who is sharing the truth without
Doing research then it just makes you appear ignorant.
This is in reference to the woman calling her a liar! We all have to stand before God some day and give an account for our actions. How do you think God feels about injecting elective aborted fetus tissue into our bodies or forcing our children who do not have a choice to do this? It grieves my heart that other Christians believe everything the medical establishment tells them, doesn’t do their own research and can’t see that there is an agenda that is being used in the media and other levels of government. Calling another Christian a liar for speaking the truth. Can we say “triggered”? The truth will set you free.
Sherry Foth says
Your comments are on target, Misty. It saddens and even disgusts me at times how Christians seem to think that the medical profession is (mostly) above reproach. Whatever their doctors and the government tells them about health and medicine is easily believed and trusted, without most people ever doing their own research. Too often we idolize those with more education, realizing that it doesn’t necessarily translate into true wisdom. Meanwhile these same trusting people frequently bemoan their health problems, especially the worsening health of American children, and think it is just normal. It might be the new normal, but it doesn’t have to be that way. I also have come to the conclusion that most of the time when people don’t want to know anything else, it can be attributed to laziness. It takes effort to learn and to change eating habits, etc., that affect our health.
The video is “unavailable.” Taken down.
Find a holistic dr.. a naturopath. They will sign off on a medical exemption.. if that doesn’t work.. get a lawyer to write you a religious or medical exemption. It’s going to cost you but the cost is worth the life of your child.
Tara Gill says
Just an FYI they have to be an MD OR DO
Christie G says
So many colleges do online courses now. He can also Clep most freshman and sophomore level classes.
Online college. That’s what our vcikfren will be doing if there are no exemptions at that time. I will not vaccinate them for college and undo everything we have worked so hard to protect them against. Although, I pray that things have changed by them.
There is an online accredited college now for homeschooled kids. I dont remember the name but it’s a big one
Tara Gill says
There are tons of online accredited schools for everyone, not limited to homeschooled kids 🙂
T. Hollenbeck says
Accreditation has its own problem and is yet another man-made system we Christians must not idolize. Don’t seek that out in regards to post-secondary training. If a program a child has interest in is “accredited,” so be it. But don’t seek it out. Instead, pursue what will be necessary for the child to fulfill God’s call and trust that God – not some “accreditation” – will guide his/her steps.
Thank goodness there is now online education for college degrees! Not only are they not being influenced by peers in sinful manners but they can get a full education and stay true to their spiritual and physical values! If out of state college isn’t an option online education is and there are Christian colleges such as Moody Bible Institute that are free to students that will grant an education while valuing your convictions.
I am attending Colorado State Technical University online and I absolutely love it. It’s so much easier to NOT say things you shouldn’t when being taught /indoctrinated with & to just do your own extra research on subjects. No peer pressure nor the normal temptations that just come with college life. Its homeschool with degrees . Lol It has truly been a amazing experience. My bible studies are in perfect alignment with my school studies so that I am not believing the indoctrination that is just unavoidable. I Thank God everyday that I didn’t go to college until I was 42 years old and God had opened my eyes first. I am not saying anyone should wait that long but everyone does need God and the bible (what it actually says, not what we were taught) first. Sounds like you’re already doing what’s right. Just keep praying. I’m still in the process of learning what to avoid due to all the garbage almost everything contains. I hear a lot of people say ” your already in such bad health, its probably too late anyway”. I don’t believe that !
How to we respond to courts in regards to vaccinations when asked if we would do blood transfusions, antibiotics, organ transplants if need be?
I believe the 2 are not comparable. Vaccinations are given to healthy people other are given to unhealthy people.
But curious if there is biblical support.
We live in NY state where religion exemption was taken away as well, but it’s only for grade schools and colleges still accept religious exemption. Most people who attend colleges at adults and there’s still religious exemption in place.
There used to be a Titer test (blood test) that you could take in place of having to get vaccines. My Chiropractor has it done for his children and used it as a form of exemption. I had one day about 8 years ago. This is a very general explanation but; if your immune system shows a natural immunity to the viruses that they vaccinate for then it basically proves natural immunity and you don’t have to be required to get vaccinated. Hope this helps!
Rebecca Still says
I believe this to be true. What would our state I’d health be if we first trusted Gods plan…he said he gave us plants for healing… Not human or animal parts. Also, of we work on building the immune system naturally.
Exactly. I am so glad to find this article. There are several nurses in my church who think they are doing such a great thing giving flu shots and Gardasil. I also have thought that the aborted baby DNA is contributing to the gender identity issue.
I totally agree with you on this.
Robert Mueller says
I have a dilemma. Our daughter gave birth to a baby girl that has been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. She is adamant about us getting a flu shot in order to be around the baby. I would add that all of us are saved believers but, despite my biblical insights, she is firmly set on us having the flu shot, despite the fact that there are only 3 strains that it has any affect on.
Would I be disobedient to God by getting it or should I not go around my granddaughter?
I’m so sorry Robert. I think whether or not you’re disobeying God is between you and Him, but I wouldn’t get a vaccination to please anyone else ever, knowing what I know about their toxicity and the damage they do to the body. Her daughter is more at risk for getting sick from a recently vaccinated individual than she’ll ever be around those who haven’t been vaccinated. Praying your daughter sees truth.
J Barton says
I agree, pray that your daughter would gain wisdom over the situation. Maybe do a little research on the effects of the flu shot. Many people don’t know that you can still get the flu even after receiving the shot.
Or get the flu BECAUSE of the shot! Please encourage anyone who insists such things to not base their decisions on medical hear-say but do the research! Most docs don’t do the research and just parrot what others tell . them! Love not the world nor the things of this world! “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever. 1 John 2:15-17
Robert, what a heart-wrenching predicament! I agree, though, that I would not vaccinate myself to please anyone else because I would be the one suffering the consequences. Of course, that would mean not being around your sweet grandchild…physically anyway. You can send cards, or books, and pictures to the baby, call often, deliver meals for the new Mom, or maybe diapers (and see the sweetie through a window) to show there is no hard feelings, but that you love your daughter and granddaughter. Your resolve to trust God will speak more than words will. I pray that The Lord will ease this situation for everyone involved.
Have you asked your daughter to read the package insert for the flu shot , the side effects, etc? Does she know that if you get the flu shot you actually are putting yourself and her daughter at greater risk? You would shed the virus you are injected with, possibly affecting those close to you. If she is requiring you to put your health at risk, then she should be willing to look at all the facts and research. This is not something one human should be deciding/demanding of another human. It is very much like playing Russian Roulette.
Becca in MI says
In hospitals, nurses who refuse the flu shot are asked to wear a surgical mask. Would this be an acceptable substitute to the vaccine when you are around your granddaughter?
A person who gets the flu shot is 6x more contagious than a person who doesn’t get the flu shot. That’s facts. So by getting the flu shot you are more of a danger to the child.
Do you have scientific proof of this ? The intranasal vaccine is the only live vaccine of the flu “shot”. The flu shot is a dead virus and thus cannot give someone’s the actual virus nor give it to someone else via the shot.
Krystal R Samuel says
Where did you find that information?
How about a mask?
Vaccines have a “shedding” period that varies from individual to individual, but could be months long for some. Shedding is when the virus you’ve been vaccinated with (“from”) makes you a carrier for a time, and you are contagious during that period. If she knows more about that, and maybe imposes a strict rule of “no one sick bear baby, no kisses to baby’s face, and alcohol-based hand sanitizer before touching baby”, maybe it would let her ease up on her enforcement of what you do to your own body re: flu shots.
I just have one thought to add, especially should any other believers find themselves in this situation. GOD IS GRACIOUS. Whatever actions you took for the well being of your child, especially in ignorance, God is gracious. Whatever vaccines, antibiotics or prescription drugs you may have administered to your child while being told it was in their best interest, God is gracious. Yes, your past actions may have far-reaching consequences, but God is gracious and He can and will sustain you and your child. Wisdom gained often brings with it an intense guilt from the past, but that isn’t God’s desire for you. GOD IS GRACIOUS. His greatest desire is for you to move forward in freedom with the wisdom you have been given. God bless you brother or sister in Christ!
I so agree! We have to forgive ourselves and know that He forgives us too- and His grace is sufficient!
Chelle G. says
I’m one of the people who got a 3-day flu right after receiving the shot. That was after 11 years without the flu.
After the research I’ve done & finding out about what God says about them, I will never vaccinate again by choice. If it were my granddaughter, I’d skip seeing her until her parents saw sense & truth, praying for them and the baby.
I wholeheartedly agree. Thank you for posting about the Biblical perspective of vaccinations!
This has been eating me up ALIVE that I’m TRYING to not let the fear of vaccinating my child get to me but every time her appointment is near, the fear comes back. I understand everything about the vaccinating but what I don’t understand is what if you don’t vacc. yur child and he/she starts to react to one of any type of sickness. Would she be okay? Would her body fight it? Like what if we don’t vaccinate our child, and this world gets to bad that the government on purpose spreads this air born sickness in air An our child gets sick. (That can be possible) would my daughter get worse for not being vaccinated? See there’s so much to say. Please pray for me an my daughter.
Jesie from all I’ve seen and heard from families who have children that are unvaccinated and vaccinated the children who are not vaccinated are healthier. The unvaxxed have immune systems that are not loaded down with heavy metals, who haven’t had their kidneys and liver dealing with the toxins in the vaccines, the vaxxed on the other hand have been exposed to vaccines which constantly trigger the immune system into a hyper state possibly leaving them more prone to illness (eg ear infections) as it is overburdened and are definitely having to detox these toxins. Plus there is a very new study from Italy that shockingly showed that hexa infanrix didn’t even have ANY of the antigens for the diseases – meaning it’s just toxic placebo!!!
Pray over this matter and God will give you peace about it. There’s lots of information out there about the diseases that these vaccines allegedly protect from. Most are benign, many can be treated with high doses of vitamins (which you can do via juicing/blending fruit.) Educate yourself about these diseases and you may find suddenly they are not even a fear factor. Blessings
I’ve worked in healthcare 42yrs. We raised seven children, starting 46yrs ago. First 2.5 were vaxxed. Severe reaction on last. Their immune systems were compromised. The rest were never vaxxed. Healthy, vibrant adults now. The BEST thing i have found to do is feed our children CLEAN sourced REAL foods. Chemically processed ‘foods’, sugar, plastics etc are killing us! Made a garden and grow in non-toxic soils. PREVENTION IS KEY. We had chicken pox, pertussis x2 and all kinds of virus’. Healthier than ever. I can go on.
Vaccines don’t improve immunity. If anything they deplete it. They rob the body of the ability to perform as God intended.
My daughter has multiple disabilities, and a lot of reasons why getting sick is dangerous for her. But she is not vaccinated, and she is getting healthier and healthier as time goes on. She has been exposed to whooping cough without any problems. And she has been much healthier since we started boosting her immune system with healthy foods, essential oils, and supplements made to improve her general health.
On the other hand, my two oldest, who were vaccinated were always sick. Ear infections, asthma etc. not to mention our second almost died of SIDS after her shots. Never again! 7 children. 5 never vaccinated. 6 oldest are now adults, and youngest is 10 and doing well despite her disabilities.
Vaccinating is far scarier than trusting in God and applying his principles to health.
Hi I partly vaccinated my children before I knew the truth. My children had reactions and got sick with every injection. That got to me. My grand daughter is unvaccinated. She was two years before she ever had a fever. The fever was mild and lasted 1 day. My oldest son ended up hospitalized because of vaccines. He was later diagnosed with asthma. When my children got sick, it was not mild and they stayed sick for days. Ear infection, eczema and frequent dr visits were the norm for many years . You only get one time to get it right. If I could go back I would not let them get any. Research look up the vaccine inserts on the CDC website. Also make the adjustment to natural vitamin A, D and C. They are much more effective than vaccines. Vaccines actually are designed to make you sick.
If you build your child’s immune system with breast milk then healthy foods, the immune system will take care of her. Keep toxins, sugars and gmos from the diet and stay away from pesticides etc. If you fear going to the pediatric visits stop them. They are primarily for vaccine appointments under the guise of health care. Find a family doctor and only go when there is a medical need. The level of intelligence in unvaccinated children is amazing. Go online and read the vaccine inserts. The information there should make you know that you are not willing to risk your child’s natural health with the toxic contents.
Brenda Horner says
Some of those illnesses actually give your child a lifelong immunity and build the immune system when exposed naturally. When you vaccinate it artificially hyper stimulates the immune system and causes autoimmune diseases. Vaccines have never been apart of the decline in illnesses. What did cause the decline was better sanitation, hygiene and nutrition. Please look on YouTube for “The Truth About Vaccines” and Dr Suzanne Humphries Disolving Illusions. Also Dr. Toni Bark, Dr Nancy Banks and Dr Sherry Tenpenny. And you will have the confidence to say NO to the bullying of you and your child.
Krystal Samuel says
There are risks for both vaccinating and not vaccinating. When a child is vaccinated they could have a reaction to the vaccine, there are no studies that prove a link with autism no matter how many times people try to say the two are connected. There seems to be a genetic link to autism that is currently being investigated. If a reaction occurs they are in a medical office and will get immediate treatment and the nurses send you with information on what to look for so you can bring the child in if there is a late reaction to the vaccine. If the child does not get vaccinated and catches the disease the outcome may vary. They could fight it and get the immunity as a result, they could end up with short term or long term effects or possibly death. For example, with measles (the recent concern) if a non vaccinated person comes in contact with the virus they have a 95% chance of getting it. Measles can lead to hearing loss, pneumonia (infection of the lungs), or encephalitis (swelling of the brain). You can look up the statistics on each vaccine and decide whether the benefits outweigh the risks or not. It is important for each person to do their research. I know that God will protect me, and I know that God gave me the ability to learn and grow. It is important we use what information we can when we decide what cleaning products to use, what toys to buy.
The analogy I like to use is: I could close my eyes and walk across the road every day and trust in God alone to protect me, but if he gave me eyes to see with it would be foolish not to use them. The bible speaks of the foolish man. I trust God will protect my family, but I also feel it is necessary to take certain measures to protect my children myself too. I have a fire alarm, locks on my doors, a baby monitor over my crib, covers over my outlets, and more. It is up to each individual to decide what safety measures to use for your children, I pray that all individuals do their research so informed decisions can be made. Trust in God but do not be foolish or let your guard down with your children either. Weigh the risks vs the benefits of each vaccine. I will pray for guidance. God Bless
I read through all of the comments and yours is literally the only one I agree with. I feel like vaccines are such a controversial issue… and I have my problems with them as well. But here’s my overall opinion. The “research” out there… what’s true and what’s not? Who can we believe? We live in a culture where we are constantly being lied to. The only truth is God’s Word. And I can’t say I feel like the passages above were being used correctly. Unclean animals? Those were from the old covenant. As believers were are a part of the new covenant. The laws in Leviticus no longer apply to us due to the saving blood of Jesus Christ. And I agree with what you said – should we never wear seatbelts because we’re trusting God to save us? And certainly he can! But we need to use wisdom. And wisdom says “wear your seatbelt when you’re driving 60 mph down the highway.” God is all powerful. God deserves our unfailing trust and faith. And each of us need to pray for wisdom in this issue and the go where the Lord leads us.
I wish I would have read this before Oct. 1st. I am a fairly new believer, or at least a finally seeing the truth, and it was against every cell of my body that I got the flu vaccine to keep my job! If I had seen this sooner I would have had an argument to give and maybe could have been exempted on religious beliefs! Thank you! Next year I will be more prepared when this subject comes up again!
Faith Hope Mummy says
Thanks God i found your writing related to vaccination. Me myself was one among the mother who had my twin injected during their 6 months vaccine schedule. Few days after, both my twin developed red rash on their cheeks that developed into eczema. They are almost 1 year 4 months now and still dealing with eczema & food allergies. My instinct strongly say this were all due to vaccination and will never let my only babies become the victim anymore. I feel guilty towards my two daughter because previously i never educate myself as a mother before getting them vaccinated without knowing the vaccine ingredients. I thank God i found someone who agree that God never made mistakes with our immune system. I do believe that both my daughter was a blessing from Him after 4 years marriage and they were our first born. When you reject vaccination, you need to become tough because the people around you be the family member or relative will push you to get shot. Fret not, it your baby future health matter, not theirs. Take heart & God bless!
Look up betaine HCI +. Add it to your children’s diet also eliminate wheat and corn. You will find the eczema will clear up over time that way. It took 4 months for my daughter’s skin to start clearing up.
Faith Hope Mummy says
Hello Jewel! thanks for the sharing..may i know what brand is suitable for toddler under 2 years? Maybe you can give some suggestion on what brand to look for.Praise God your daughter have healed from eczema.
Check out the hydrochloric acid that is sold at dr.fitt.com you can make it in jello squares. It is called Robynzymes. Not cheap but it lasts a while. That is the only was I know to get it into a toddler.
Shelby lusk says
This is so beautiful ❤️
And I agree we often overlook what God puts out there for us because it’s easier to do, then go against the grain, he says Christians will be persecuted for there beliefs this is just another eye opener ❤️
I worked in the ER as a nurse and asked for a religious exemption, and was told that I would loose my job if I didn’t comply. I was fired once I was found to be in non compliance. But, filed a discrimination case with Dept of Labor Equal Opportunity, and they accepted my case. Do you think it’s against God’s will if I filed a claim against them for discrimination because they refused to offer me accommodation? Should I have just turned the other cheek? Because, I feel that If I don’t stand up for our God given right to choose what we put into our body, then that right will be taken. I had a Christian question if God would want me to file a case against my employer, wondering if it was Goodly? If they rule in my favor, the hospital will be required to pay me a sum of money for damages, which I believe they should, because I lost my job, and the loss of time spent in that job has effected my ability to get employment also. What to you think?
The Bible does not say anything against taking someone to court. It talks about not taking a brother to court, but rather settling things between you.
If we do not fight for our rights in this area, we are not fighting for the rights of our fellow human beings. I believe if anything we have a duty to fight this injustice. God is a God of justice.
While I can understand concern about your decision could you not also see this as an opportunity to help further fight for religious rights? I can’t imagine that being anything but christ like!
scientism is a very powerful religion…
God opposes all idolatry.
saving faith will always get us through this life.
@Lisa… Our Lord refers to not bringing another Christian to court, but rather to resolve the matter with the help of other Christians. (This in I Corinthians 6). Your employer was certainly not a chritian, so this does not apply to your situation.
The ‘turning the other cheek’ is Jesus speaking in the beattitudes in Matthew 5… Jesus is speaking about revenge. The Jewish law (I think)at the time held that the punishment should be essentially equivalent to the crime “eye for an eye, tooth for tooth”. But Jesus was trying to teach forgiveness instead of seeking revenge. What is in your heart is of prime importance. Pray about your situation…if you are seeking revenge on your employer, perhaps your heart is not right with the Lord. But it you see an opportunity to have a case that sets a precedent for liberty and justice, that may be worthy calling, as our God is a God of justice! (Remember, you can forgive someone and still call the police to protect yourself and pursue justice and safety for them and your neighbors!)
The concept of turning the other cheek came from Jesus in his sermon on the mount. He was speaking against the eye for an eye philosophy of personal retaliation. He was not relieving us of our duty to stand for truth. If you sue the company because their (ungodly) policy has resulted in your lost wages, then you are only asking that they hold up their end of your employment agreement.
David was not wrong for going after Goliath.
Lisa, I turn to the Book of Esther as my example that God gives us the right to self-preservation. The Jews were given the right to fight back against extermination, and this priciple still stands today. We are not required to be martyrs, especially to the pagan practices that surround us. Vaccinations are clearly practicing paganism, as it is not putting our faith in God our healer, nor in our belief that it is by and through Christ’s stripes that we are healed. Vaccinations furthermore attack our bodies’ natural immune system and weaken and/or destroy our health, “the temple of our holy spirit.” Ergo, vaccinations attack us at both a spiritual and physical level! It weakens our bodies AND our relationship with Father in heaven. We have a RIGHT to self preservation, aka self-defense, and that includes attacks from our employers. Fight back, even as the ancient Israelites did. We have the God-given right!
Exellent, well thought out post. Thank you so much for being courageous and sharing these truths!

Healthy People 2020 has an agenda to force all adults to be vaccinated on a vaccine schedule or you can’t get a driver’s license, can’t work with the public, can’t attend public events like football games. How would a football game know you’ve been vaccinated? would they scan your microchip to verify you are up-to-date on vaccinations? If they can forcibly vaccinate you, they can forcibly microchip you.
I love this. Thank you so much. I have been so upset about the new vaccine mandates. Really sick over it all. We have decided to start homeschooling. My kids are vaccinated because I didn’t do my research and I put my trust in a doctor and not God. Now my oldest is starting middle school and that opens doors to new mandatory vaccines like hpv which has very scary side effects. I feel as a parent I should have a choice. Thank you God bless you!
“Today, many pro-vaccine Christians will convince themselves that aborted fetal cells in vaccines is just a sad part of the history of vaccine creation, as these “designer cell lines” (one of the names given to make them sound innocuous) were derived from elective abortions in the 60s. However, there is evidence that this is an ongoing practice.”
Can you provide elaboration and some links, references, resources on the last quoted statement that there is evidence that this is an ongoing practice.. I assume “this” to mean using new aborted fetal cells in current/updated vaccines?
Thank you in advance.
To be honest, the links that I found before seem to be gone. I will add some if I can track them down.
I do my best to avoid biblically unclean foods. Therefore, consuming or injecting anything from dog, monkey, pig (porcine gelatin), etc. would be against my biblical beliefs.
Thanks for this!!

What is sickening is that you’re using God’s word to justify your position on vaccines, and NO scripture you provided is being used in its correct context. Vaccines ARE NOT made out of fetal tissue. The government is required to provide all ingredients listed in all vaccines which are publicly available on the CDC website. There’s one thing to be a Christian and trust in God to keep you healthy, but it’s another thing LYING and misleading other Christians. Shame on you.
Sorry Christina, but you are wrong. Please see the following link: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/B/excipient-table-2.pdf
Just a few to note: the adenovirus vaccine contains human-diploid fibroblast cell cultures (strain WI-38); the Dtap contains MRC-5 cells and normal human diploid cells; the Hep A contains MRC-5 diploid fibroblasts; the MMR contains WI-38 human diploid lung fibroblasts. Should I keep going? HUMAN DIPLOID cells ARE TAKEN FROM ABORTED BABIES. You can even read about how those cells were harvested from specific babies if you look them up.
Please do your homework before calling me a liar. I wish this wasn’t the truth, but it is.

Nice article. The Messiah would never have gotten these vaccinations with unclean animals in them. Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14 discuss which animals are clean (food) and unclean (non-food) and to touch the dead carcass of an unclean animal is forbidden and called an abomination to eat. How much more injecting unclean animal cells into the body?
“Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.”
Leviticus 11:8 KJV
“They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.”
Leviticus 11:11 KJV

So does that mean that taking homeopathics is going against Gods wishes? Nosodes and Sarcodes (part of homeopathy) come from animal cells.
Not to mention that the animal cells used to make the vaccines are animals that the Lord declared unclean.
Dear Danielle and Jaclyn,
Thanks so much for the info on aborted human fetal cells as an origin for vaccines. It has helped me finally make up my mind with no further uncertainty as I had already decided that I didn’t want to use them based on animal derivatives and query unsafe chemicals but I was left with a slight niggling doubt until I read about the human element.
I have 3 children , but my last son born in September 2018 is 10 years after the other 2. Both my older son and daughter had every vaccine up to 12 months old and both my children between ages 1 and 3 had extremely frequent bouts of high temp 39.4 degrees and they had every vomiting bug and one caught pneumonia and nearly died, gladly he lived but has developed autism . I have no clue what part vaccines played in my sons autism. My baby son was born at 28 weeks gestation and was on oxygen for weeks after birth and I am naturally more cautious. I came to faith a few years before my third child was born and can clearly see that Bible does not appear to support vaccines. The following Scripture helps me.
James 5:14 , 15 New International Version (NIV)
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.
Since coming to faith the amount of sickness my children suffer is less.
May God ever be praised for the truth.

You are absolutely right about this. I was having my 3 eldest children attend a local “Christian” school because I thought it aligned with my family’s beliefs, but I was wrong. They threatened to expel my children from the school if I didn’t give them vaccines, and I said “Are you all insane? Do you want to fill YOUR children with toxins and heavy metals and aborted babies? I refuse to do that to my children.” So I took my children out of that school, and I now homeschool them.
I used to be pro-vaccine, a long time ago, until my first 2 children got eczema and allergies after getting their MMR shots. After my second child had the same reaction, I knew it wasn’t just a coincidence. Now, my two youngest children, Jenny who is 7 and Christopher who is 3, are completely unvaccinated and are so much healthier than my oldest two. They have no allergies, no eczema, no autism, no heavy metals in their body, nothing else like that at all.
I vaccinated my two oldest children because the pediatrician I was going to pressured me into doing it — I ignored the package insert because the doctor told me that I didn’t have anything to worry about, but clearly she was wrong. Now, I have stopped seeing that pediatrician and now take my 4 children to a naturopathic healer nearby. They are all doing so much better than they were before, and I will keep it up. Praise the Lord and his forgiveness and healing!

Just want to add that I believe the same applies to animals. We’re not to do harm to any living creature and vaccinating any of God’s creatures is against Holy Scripture. My family no longer vaccinates our animals and we own pets that came from Christian natural rearing breeders who don’t vaccinate, give pharma drugs or anything toxic to their animals, and feed a natural species correct diet. It’s made a tremendous difference in their health and their lifespan. We also use natural, homeopathic vets. Thank God for these good people who are saving their species and breeds.

Thank you for your thoughtful and carefully researched article. Unfortunately California just took away our Religious Exemption. Ouch. Please pray for all of us who live here.
Definitely praying for you in California!
Very well said, and I would agree. Although I’d change/clarify a bit the man-made point. “Man-made” in itself isn’t bad (cars are man-made). The issue with vaccines is that man is trying to create life out of death and bring health out of death. They are going against God’s design. You’re points are good, but a bit weak.
