I get a lot of questions when it comes to vaccination and Christianity.
Some people claim that Christians should not be vaccinated and should not vaccinate their kids.
Some Christians believe that vaccines are a gift from God to save humanity of infectious diseases.
It is an extremely, cognitively dissonant fact that at least half of Americans polled consider themselves to be against abortion (i.e. “pro-life”), yet the vast majority of Americans support a vaccine schedule that requires the induced abortion of a fetus (and the subsequent harvesting of aborted fetal cells) for the production of vaccines injected into their loved ones
First, they are making a utilitarian decision on some level. Practically speaking, they are willing to disregard one of their religion’s most fundamental moral precepts because they believe by doing so these abortion-derived vaccines will protect themselves and their children from life-threatening diseases. Clearly, here, the health of the body is being prioritized over the health of the soul.
Second, it reflects a lack of authentic religious faith. Clearly, for this population, the religion of Modern Medicine and its supposedly Science-Based scriptures trumps that of religious tenets that forbid support of abortion and/or complicity with it.
Where the American public places their faith, not in theory but as actually practiced, is at the heart of the issue. Most Americans believe it a foregone conclusion that the “science on vaccine safety and efficacy is settled,” when, in fact, nothing could be further from the truth when the actual, non-industry funded published literature is taken into account. Given the uncritical and unquestioning faith the general populace has in the media and government on vaccine issues (The CDC’s authority, for instance, being eminence-based and not evidence-based), their assumption that their children’s lives will be in dire peril if they don’t vaccinate clearly overrides supposedly God-ordained moral precepts that must be obeyed to ensure their souls won’t be in dire peril. What does this say about modern religious beliefs and their waning strength?
Y’all know that I am a Christian and today we will debunk this question because it is at the heart of this pro vs anti-vax debate and therefore is very important to address.
This essay is pretty long because I wanted to cover as much as possible. I spent months studying the question, so be patient 😊.
The main issue that Christians have is that about half of the vaccines are derived from or contains human embryonic cells.
Those cells are harvested from aborted fetuses.
And Christians are supposed to be against abortion. I say “supposed” because I have met “Christians” who justified abortion as being okay in certain circumstances.
Some others claim that because those human embryonic cell lines were generated in the 60s, it is acceptable to use them to make vaccines for the greater good.
In other words, it’s been 60 years so who cares babies were killed back then?
This is called justification and is the primary enemy of our mind.
The definition of justifying is: “to show a satisfactory reason or excuse for something done.”
In other words, you make up excuses for your personal beliefs in order to be right.
“The mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind of the flesh is hostile to God: It does not submit to God’s Law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the flesh cannot please God.”
“And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith”
“Where then is boasting? It is excluded by what kind of law? Of works? No, but by a law of faith. For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law. Or is God the God of Jews only? Is He not the God of Gentiles also? “
“But they, our fathers, acted arrogantly; They became stubborn and would not listen to Your commandments.”
“Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, were listening to all these things and were scoffing at Him. And He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves in the sight of men, but God knows your hearts; for that which is highly esteemed among men is detestable in the sight of God.”
“In His teaching He was saying: “Beware of the scribes who like to walk around in long robes, and like respectful greetings in the marketplaces, and chief seats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets”
“You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.”
“A man who hardens his neck after much reproof Will suddenly be broken beyond remedy.”
When you subject your mind to the flesh, you justify your actions. From these verses and others, it is clear that we need to submit our mind to God, to His Holy Spirit, not to our flesh.
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.”
In other words, a sin committed yesterday is still a sin today.
Adam and Eve sinned more than 6000 years ago, and we still have to deal with the repercussions of it today. So, time does not matter. What matters is the act itself.
Let’s be a little bit humorous here.
Let’s say that you and Jesus go to Starbucks to have some coffee (even though I would never have coffee there lol).
You start talking and at some point, you say:
“I have a great idea that could save millions of kids, but I need your approval.”
“OK I am listing.”
“I am thinking to make vaccines to prevent infectious diseases, but this would require me to kill babies, to harvest their body parts, to make cell lines and then to make vaccines. I just need to kill a few hundred babies to accomplish this. Is that ok with you?”
I can imagine Jesus looking at you all confused, maybe mad, and saying something like this:
“For I am the Lord who heals you.”
“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
“I will give you back your health and heal your wounds,”
“The Lord nurses them when they are sick and restores them to health.”
“Jesus said to the woman, “You are now well because of your faith. May God give you peace! You are healed, and you will no longer be in pain.”
“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”.
It is absurd to believe that it is okay to kill babies to make vaccines in order to save lives and believing you are a Christian. Complete nonsense!
Let’s do a short history of human fetal cells and vaccines (excerpts from Dr. Jessica Farnsworth).
In the 1960s, Dr. Leonard Hayflick at the Wistar Institute located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania began working with aborted babies in an attempt to obtain human cell strains that would provide a culture medium for the growth of viruses.
These viruses, grown in the human cell culture, could then be used to make vaccines to protect against various illnesses such as polio and rubella.
Hayflick stated, “The isolation and characterization of human diploid cell strains from fetal tissue make this type of cell available as a substrate for the production of live virus vaccines.”
Back then, abortion was illegal in the United States at the time Dr. Hayflick was conducting his research, so Sweden provided a source for legal abortions.
Healthy babies were sought for this research project by screening the aborting parents for familial diseases or cancer.
A research assistant was on duty at the time of the abortion to quickly collect organs from the baby and prepare them for rapid and sterile transport to Pennsylvania.
Erling Norrby, the intern, working under Dr. Sven Gard who supplied the babies, reported, “One of my duties as a young student in the laboratory in Stockholm was to dissect human fetuses from legal abortions and send organs to the Wistar Institute. Such material was the source of many important studies of cell lines at the Institute, such as Leonard Hayflick’s study of WI-38 cells… When we collected the organs, this was done immediately after the legal abortion. We were on duty to immediately perform the sampling and to arrange for an as rapid transport as possible over the Atlantic Ocean. The fetal material arrived by car from the nearby hospital to our laboratory enwrapped in a green surgical cloth. Maximal sterility was critical to allow an outgrowth of fetal cells without any contamination after the transport”.
It is important to understand the close connection between the abortionist and the researcher obtaining the fetal organs for research.
The intent of the researcher was to use the aborted babies for the development of vaccines. The aborting parents were screened for health and their baby chosen for research material.
The need for fresh fetal tissue dictated that the abortion be pre-arranged between abortionist and researcher. The opportunity for the mother of the aborted baby to be influenced toward abortion is obvious.
Studies have shown that a significant percentage of mothers who are considering abortion would be more likely to follow through with it if they knew they could donate their baby for research.
Investigations into the fetal tissue market have revealed that abortion facilities providing aborted babies to researchers are offered a fee by research facilities so that fetal organs can be harvested on-site.
Opportunity abounds for the abortion industry to be encouraged and funded by human fetal tissue research.
You can see how evil the whole thing was. Those women did it for the money.
Dr. Stanley Plotkin, who worked on the rubella vaccine at Wistar Institute, said:
“This fetus was chosen by Dr. Sven Gard, specifically for this purpose. Both parents are known… the abortion was done because they felt they had too many children. There were no familial diseases in the history of either parent and no history of cancer specifically in the families.”
This cell line was named WI-38, for Wistar Institute and the 38th fetal sample used in this research. WI-38 cells are used extensively to this day by several pharmaceutical companies in vaccine production.
In order words, this cell line was made from the 38th aborted baby.
When the rubella epidemic struck in 1964, the Wistar Institute worked with American abortionists to collect and dissect aborted babies to obtain the rubella virus for vaccine development, involving almost 70 abortions.
The 27th baby in the rubella project provided the live virus that was used in the vaccine.
Thus, the rubella virus was named RA 27/3 (Rubella, Abortus, 27th fetus, 3rd tissue explant). The virus was then grown in WI-38 cells for vaccine production.
The cell lines MRC-5 and WI-38, propagated from lung tissue of mature aborted fetuses, are used in the current manufacture of a number of routine vaccines, including those for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMRV), diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, and polio, (DTaP-IPV), Hepatitis A and chickenpox.
PER C6 cell line was obtained from an 18- week old fetus aborted in 1985, developed by Dutch pharmaceutical Crucell in 1995, and has been licensed by many pharmaceutical companies who desire to develop new vaccines.
Other cell lines have been developed from other aborted babies. Yes, this is the dirty secret of the vaccine companies, new cell lines are still currently being generated from human aborted babies.
Although most Christian ethicists would agree that abortion is evil, some seem to feel that passive participation via use of a product attained from aborted babies is acceptable because the abortion was performed long ago or because the abortionists or researchers are to blame for the evil of the abortion.
However, a common misperception among the public as well as
ethicists and theologians are the assumption that the abortions were not done
with the intent of developing vaccines.
As discussed above in the history of viral vaccine development, it is clear that the researchers intended to use the aborted babies for vaccine development and were directly involved in choosing which babies to use.
It was an act of genocide. They carefully selected who to choose.
As I said, human aborted fetuses are still being used today in the production and research on new vaccines.
Below are some of the latest examples, from 2018, not from the 60s like some pro-vaccines would like us to believe.
Numerous current studies describe how humanized mice injected with fetal tissue are used to study vaccine immunological reactions to HIV virus, ebola, influenza virus, West Nile virus, dengue virus and more.
In their 2018 paper, University of Colorado scientists describe Hu-BLT mice as a “human surrogate model for future testing of the vaccine and antiviral therapeutic candidates” for Zika virus.
In another paper, A collaborative team from Princeton University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard Medical School and the University of Pennsylvania describe “human-like vaccine responses” to yellow-fever virus vaccine in humanized mice in their study published in the journal Nature earlier this year. The research was funded with a taxpayer grant from the National Institutes of Health and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, among other funders.
The title is
“Selective expansion of myeloid and NK cells in humanized mice yields human-like vaccine responses”.
Here’s what the authors say:
Human fetal livers (16–22 weeks of gestational age) were procured from Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), Inc. (Alameda, CA). Fetal liver was homogenized and incubated in digestion medium (HBSS) with 0.1% collagenase IV (Sigma-Aldrich, Darmstadt, Germany), 40 mM HEPES, 2 M CaCl2, and 2 U/ml DNAse I (Roche, Basel, Switzerland) for 30 min at 37 °C. Human CD34+ HSC were isolated using a CD34+ HSC isolation kit (Stem Cell Technologies, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) according to the manufacturer’ protocol.
1–5 days old xenorecipient mice were irradiated with 300 cGy and 1.5–2 × 105 human CD34+ HSC were injected intrahepatically 4–6 h after irradiation. Male and female mice transplanted with CD34+ HSC derived from various human donors were used in this study.
In order words, they harvested human fetal cells from 16-22 weeks old fetuses are injected them into mice to create “humanized mice”.
This a methodology that has been used several times across the world and it is the new way to study vaccines.
You see, human aborted fetuses are still being used today as you read these words for the research of new vaccines.
This is very upsetting! As Christians, we should be very concerned with the killing of babies for the sake of vaccine research.
The evil performed when these babies were killed decades ago is sufficient to make these tainted vaccines morally unacceptable.
Even worse, babies are still being aborted today for the same purpose.
The passage of time does not diminish a sinful act. The close working relationship between abortionists and researchers introduces even more reason to abstain from participation in the fetal tissue market, and we have discussed how the practice of developing new cell lines continues.
Now fetal cells are used in the development of food products and facial care products as the use of human fetal cells for vaccines has proven so successful and profitable, with so little public outcry.
In 2005, the Vatican stated, “…the aspect of passive cooperation is that which stands out most. It is up to the faithful and citizens of upright conscience (fathers of families, doctors) to oppose, even by making an objection of conscience, the ever more widespread attacks against life and the “culture of death” which underlies them. From this point of view, the use of vaccines whose production is connected with procured abortion constitutes at least a mediate remote passive material cooperation to the abortion, and an immediate passive material cooperation with regard to their marketing. Furthermore, on a cultural level, the use of such vaccines contributes to the creation of a generalized social consensus to the operation of the pharmaceutical industries which produce them in an immoral way.”
The Vatican clearly said stated that it was unacceptable to support this industry.
Dr. Jessica Farnsworth stated:
“It seems that people are able to justify these tainted vaccines through various means, sometimes arguing that it is comparable to the good obtained from organs donated from someone who dies from a tragic death.
However, an aborted child does not give his consent to be killed and dissected, whereas all organ donors must give consent regarding organ donation prior to their death.
I wonder what our societal response would be if we discovered these vaccines had been developed from Jews killed in a Nazi concentration camp? Would there be more outrage because a Holocaust crime seems more evil because they involve humans living outside the womb rather than in the womb?
The Holocaust took the lives of six million people; in the United States, each year more than one million babies are killed by abortion. How can we say that the pharmaceutical industry is not contributing to this evil? And how can we participate in this evil?
No matter what “good” may be engineered from evil, the evil act remains evil, and any participation in that evil is immoral. We cannot justify the evil of abortion by saying it provided the “good” of vaccines that protect our children and society.
I do not find anywhere in Scripture that says we have a moral obligation or justification to protect ourselves at the expense of another human being. Promoting the greatest good for the greatest number of people at the expense of an innocent person is utilitarianism and violates the sanctity of human life.”
In a paper published by the Catholic Medical Association entitled Use of Aborted Fetal Tissue in Vaccines and Medical Research Obscures the Value of All Human Life, Dr. Kyle Christopher McKenna stated:
“Each medical benefit or scientific advance from the use of fetal tissue from elective abortions desensitizes beneficiaries, scientists, and doctors to the original evil act that produced these cells. Aborted fetal tissues used in laboratories are minimized to merely human cells, and the human beings whose lives were taken to provide those cells become irrelevant and with time forgotten. Of greatest concern is that desensitization ultimately leads to scandal by erroneously validating elective abortions for a greater good. Without careful oversight, the fetus could become, like fetal tissue cell lines, merely cells, cultured within the uterus for scientific exploration. All people of good conscience have the responsibility to voice opposition to the use of fetal tissue from elective abortions in order to promote the development of alternatives, affirm the value of all human life, and limit scandal.”
In addition, the use of aborted fetuses is linked to the increase of autism!
Researchers from the Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute recently published a study showing a correlation with the introduction of human fetal cell lines used as contaminants in childhood vaccines, and the rapid rise of autism.
The study was published in the Journal of Public Health and Epidemiology, an open access Academic Journal entitled: “Impact of environmental factors on the prevalence of autistic disorder after 1979.”
The researchers tracked not only the introduction of aborted fetal cell lines introduced into vaccines used in the childhood vaccination scheduled in the United States, but they also tracked standards for autism diagnoses as published in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual.
This manual is used in the field of psychology and has undergone several revisions. One of the claims made for the rising rate of autism in America today is that it is primarily related to changes in diagnosis. This study used sophisticated software to account for these changes in autism diagnosis and found:
“Autistic disorder change points years are coincident with the introduction of vaccines manufactured using human fetal cell lines, containing fetal and retroviral contaminants, into childhood vaccine regimens. This pattern was repeated in the US, UK, Western Australia, and Denmark. Thus, rising autistic disorder prevalence is directly related to vaccines manufactured utilizing human fetal cells. Increased paternal age and DSM revisions were not related to rising autistic disorder prevalence.”
This scary thing is that many parents are probably not even aware that many childhood vaccines have these ingredients developed from aborted fetal cells.
“Thou shalt not kill”
God was clear and direct. He gave us a commandment: do not kill.
Therefore, it becomes straightforward. The only recourse I have and would argue any Christian should have is to boycott vaccines.
Still today, the vaccine industry uses human aborted fetuses for the research and the production of new vaccines.
“And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.”
This verse refers to Satan, the prince of the air, of this world.
It is clear that vaccination is a satanic act, there is nothing “Christ-like” in this medical procedure. In other words, supporting vaccination means supporting the prince of this world, the devil.
I know it is bold and might upset some, but that is the truth.
No Christians should be okay with abortion and the use of aborted babies for the research of vaccines
Nowhere in the Bible we can find that God supports abortion, nowhere! Actually, several verses clearly state that abortion is a sin supported by the devil.
As Christians, we need to wake up and fight this monstrosity.
“And the LORD said to Satan: “The LORD rebukes you, Satan! Indeed, the LORD, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebukes you! Is not this man a firebrand snatched from the fire?”
I pray in the name of Jesus that people will start seeing the truth and stand up together to fight the evil in this world. Amen!
God bless y’all 😊
