RELIGIOUS CONVICTIONS against vaccinantions
Public Law 97-280, passed by the 97th Congress of the United States of America, declares the Bible to Be the "Word of God" and directs citizens to "study and apply the teachings of the Holy Scriptures. "The Bible teaches that the truthfulness of an issue is to be sought and should stand on no less than two or more witnesses" (Deuteronomy 19:15).
A diligent search for truth on the safety and effectiveness of vaccinations reveals there are many studied, informed and qualified witnesses who have found and teach that there are serious health risks involved with vaccinations. Even Senate Bill 732 before the 103rd Congress of the United States known as the "Comprehensive Child Health Immunization Act of 1993", made known the fact that there are risks to vaccines. The following words are from that bill: "Vaccine information materials should be simplified to ensure that parents can understand the benefits and risks of vaccines" (emphasis added).
The Bible teaches that there are clean and unclean animals and that God's people are not to put the unclean into their bodies (Deuteronomy 14). Furthermore, the Bible teaches that "Ye shall not eat of anything that dieth of itself"; (Deuteronomy 14:21) and "that flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat". (Genesis 9:4) Vaccines are often made of, or embodies, fetuses or eggs of said unclean creatures. The process of creating the vaccine often causes said creatures to die in the process (i.e., dieth of itself). Many vaccines are made in or of the blood of diseased animals.
"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". (I Corinthians 6:19,20)
The Bible teaches that we are not to harm or wrong our neighbor (Romans 13:10: James 2:8). Our decision to decline vaccinations does not wrong or threaten our neighbor. If vaccinations are truly effective, then vaccinated neighbors would be in no danger from someone who is not vaccinated. Also, statistics show that those NOT vaccinated are less likely to expose their neighbor to harmful pathogens (that are contained in the vaccinations).
The Bible teaches children are a gift from God to the parents (Psalm 127:3) and further teaches the parents (not the state) are entrusted with the care and welfare of the child (I Timothy 5:8). The Bible also teaches there have been times in history when evil government and government employees have attempted through force, intimidation, or color of law to harm and destroy the children of God's people (Exodus I and 2 and Matthew 2). When a child's life is not in immediate, eminent danger, or there is no medical emergency, the rights of the parents to refuse vaccinations for their child should be observed and protected.
"We believe in God, and that God has created us in his image. In being created in God's image, we are given his perfect immune system. We are bestowed with His gift, the immune system. We believe it is sacrilegious and a violation of our sacred religious beliefs to violate what God has given us by showing a lack of faith in God. Immunizations are a lack of faith in God and His protection, the immune system." We are to be responsible in taking care of the body, following good health practices and hygiene. We are not to abuse "the temple of the Holy Ghost".
"We believe in Jesus' many promises of protection for us, and that He loves us, and will take care of us if we place our trust in Him. Belief in immunizations for "health" show no faith in God's promises of protection for us, saying to God that you trust man more than His holy Words of protection for us."
"God desires us to love Him and our neighbors first and foremost. This is His first command. By loving Him, we are to fully trust on Him for all things. He is our Lord Father. He is our Rock, our fortress and our Savior."
"Our faith is in God and in the Holy Word, being the Holy Bible which is authored by God. This is the instruction book for living that He has left us and in it He tells us He is our protector and we stand firm on His promise. Our faith is in Him!"
"And hearing this, Jesus said to them, 'It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.'"
"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?"
(1st COR 6:19)
"That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God."
(1st COR 2:5)
"You must know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is within the spirit you have received from God. You are not your own."
(1st COR 6:19)
"As a consequence, your faith rests not on the wisdom of men but on the power of God."
(1st COR 2:5)
"I know with certainly on the authority of Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself: it is only when a man thinks something unclean that it becomes so for him."
"If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, and you are that temple."(1st COR: 3:17)
"For to his angels he has given command about you, that they guard you in all your ways."
"Follow God your Lord, remain in awe of him, keep His commandments, obey and serve Him and you will then be able to cling to Him."
Recent court decisions have upheld the rights of individuals seeking exemptions from immunizations based upon "personal" religious convictions.
