The COVID-19 Vaccines and the Christian

THE COVID19 Vaccines and the Christian, PDF format


  For a detailed analysis of vaccines in general, see my pamphlet, Vaccines and the Christian.[1]  The present pamphlet is concerned solely with the issue of COVID-19 vaccines.

Biologist and creation scientist Dr Robert Carter, in his article, RNA Vaccines and COVID-19, wrote:  “Due to a massive amount of misunderstanding flying around today, on many different subjects, we feel the need to openly discuss the COVID-19 vaccines that are currently in production.  We understand this is a passionate subject for some people.  From experience, we find that a significant proportion of antivax information does not come from well-informed sources.  This is not to say that all of the information is bad, but misleading arguments are constantly doing the rounds.  This greatly concerns us, particularly when considering how common such arguments are in Christian circles.  Even people who are generally not influenced by conspiratorial thinking have lots of questions about the new vaccines, us included.  But we also know that questions and objections can often be answered by simply stating facts that are properly researched.  After everything has been considered, people can then make up their own minds as to how they want to act upon the given information.”[2]

Whether a Christian decides to have a vaccine or not is, biblically, an indifferent matter.  No Christian sins if he gets vaccinated, and no Christian sins if he does not.  However, all over the world governments, businesses, etc., now insist that people must be vaccinated against COVID-19 if they wish to lead normal lives.  The vaccines have become, or are becoming, mandatory in many places.  And although there is no sin committed if one submits to a COVID-19 vaccine, Christians are concerned about health problems arising from it, as well as the threat to their liberties.  This pamphlet will address these issues.

What is vital is that the Lord’s people obtain their information about this issue (as with any other) from reliable, trustworthy sources, and always act in accordance with the Scriptures.  From the moment COVID-19 vaccines were announced, the internet buzzed with conspiracy theories, some so bizarre as to leave us shaking our heads in wonder that professing Christians could fall for such nonsense.  But they did – and they continue to do so.  Quite frankly it is shocking, and more than that it is shameful, that so many who profess to be the Lord’s people spend hours trawling the net, with little or no discernment as to what is true or false, falling for sensationalist claims and theories about the supposed deadly dangers of being vaccinated, advanced by one “expert” after another.

They constantly promote their favourite “experts”, insisting that these men or women know the truth; but fail to see, or simply ignore the fact, that there are just as many, who would also be considered experts, on the opposite side of the issue.  Which camp is telling the truth?  And how can we tell?  If a believer is not a medical expert himself, how does he know for certain that a particular physician, pharmacist or scientist is telling the truth?  The only way to discover where the truth lies is by carefully comparing all the claims with known medical facts.  But unfortunately, many professing Christians approach the issue with a previous bias (not founded on real evidence[3]) against vaccines, and then proceed to find scientists, doctors, etc., who say what they want to hear.  In other words, their minds are made up before they even come to examine the evidence, and they only listen to those who agree with them.

Let us seek to separate fact from fiction.  In truth, getting vaccinated is not the problem; making use of the vaccines to implement people-control measures and “vaccine passports” is where the real danger lies.

COVID Vaccines are Not Needed to Save the Lives of the Vast Majority

  As shown in my pamphlet, Vaccines and the Christian, vaccines in general have been wonderful inventions in preventing serious, life-threatening diseases.[4] But with a recovery rate without being vaccinated of just under 100%, the Coronavirus is not one of those serious, life-threatening diseases for the vast majority of the human race, and it is certainly not a deadly plague.  I deal with this extensively in my book, The Year They Shut Down the World.[5]  This leads to only one conclusion: other than for people in very high-risk categories, a COVID vaccine is not needed to save the lives of the vast majority.  For almost 100% of people who contract COVID-19 recover anyway, without vaccines.  It is just not a deadly plague.  Not with such an excellent recovery rate!

COVID Vaccines May Prevent Serious Health Issues Arising from COVID-19

If there were no health issues for people after contracting COVID-19, there would be no point in having the vaccine at all.  The virus is simply no threat to the lives of almost 100% of those who contract it.  However, although it will not kill the vast majority, it certainly leaves many who have had it with various unpleasant and often severe and long-term health problems afterwards; and therefore a vaccine which prevents such adverse effects is not a bad thing, in and of itself.  After all, who wants to lose their sense of taste, their sense of smell, have very painful headaches or experience chronic fatigue?  The vaccine is not necessary to prevent death from COVID-19, but it may prevent these health issues.  COVID-19 is not a plague, in the sense that it is killing great numbers of people; but it is a virus, and viruses do damage to the health of the body, such as the lungs, heart, etc.  “It is up to vaccine-opponents to explain how a non-multiplying RNA vax in the shoulder, away from major blood vessels, can be more dangerous than a fast-multiplying RNA virus in the lungs, near heart and major blood vessels…. Therefore, it should not be surprising that everything they complain that the vax can do, the virus can do both far more often and far more severely.”[6]

COVID Vaccines Pose No Immediate Risk to the Health, or the Lives, of the Vast Majority

  Are the COVID-19 vaccines dangerous to one’s health?

Please carefully note the point being made here: all the evidence points to the fact that these vaccines pose no immediate health risk to the overwhelming majority of those who receive them.  This is not the same as saying they are 100% perfectly safe.  They may possibly carry some risk to health in the long term (although this is far from certain and extremely unlikely).  More about this further on.  But the minuscule number of serious adverse reactions to them, after literally billions worldwide have been vaccinated, is proof positive that they are not dangerous to the overwhelming majority in the short term.  The plain truth of the matter is that the anti-vaxers’ claims are simply not supported by the evidence.  Please read what follows very carefully and apply common sense and real facts to the issue, not knee-jerk emotionalism.

It is true that these vaccines were produced quickly; and many believe their production was too rushed, without adequate safety tests being conducted over a period of years.  In answer to this concern, Dr Jonathan Sarfati, chemist and creation scientist, writes: “However, it’s important to note that the main purpose of trials is to determine the most effective dosage levels required to train the immune system effectively.  But trials also track safety.  Another point is that many of the proposed C19 vaccines won’t be totally new technology, but will be made by the extensively tested technology used to make other safe and effective vaccines…. The C19 vaccine trials are an ethical form of the ‘double blind, placebo controlled’ method, which is the most rigorous, also called double-blind randomized clinical trials (RCTs).  Some people get the full vaccine.  Some get the vaccine with the adjuvant (something that stimulates the immune system) but without the antigen (a protein that antibodies target).  Some get the vaccine without either. This latter is not a ‘saline’ injection, but the idea is similar.  Randomized, placebo-controlled experiments were also used with the recombinant vaccine, Shingrix, very effective at preventing shingles.  Such trials are becoming standard in the industry.”[7]

It is also true that during the vaccine trials some volunteer participants fell ill.  Anti-vaxers were immediately up in arms.  But there is nothing at all unusual about this!  As Dr Carter explains: “Events like this happen in all medical trials.  And, as larger and larger numbers of people are included in the later-stage trials, it is expected that some people will get sick for reasons that have nothing to do with the vaccination.  People may even die of disease or other natural causes.  This is expected to happen when tens of thousands of people are involved.  It is then up to the statisticians to determine if the number of sick people has anything to do with the vaccine.”[8]  When the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines were in Stage 3 trials, there were about 60,000 people in each trial, with about half of them getting the placebo.  It was correctly reported at that time: “No problems (statistically) have been reported so far.  We say ‘statistically’ because in any given cohort of that size some people are going to die, get cancer, or become otherwise ill over the course of several months.”[9]

It is also true that in the early stages of the rollout, due to people experiencing blood clots after receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine, several European countries halted the vaccinations temporarily.  Reuters reported that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) “repeatedly said the benefits of the AstraZeneca shot outweigh the risks as it investigates 44 reports of an extremely rare brain clotting ailment known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST)”.[10]  Then in late March 2021 Germany’s health department reported that an additional 21 people who received the AstraZeneca vaccine suffered blood clots, and seven of them died.  The chairman of the EMA team evaluating the vaccine, Marco Cavaleri, stated that in his opinion, “we can now say it, it is clear that there is an association (of the brain blood clots) with the vaccine.”[11]

Right on cue, anti-vaxers immediately began to claim that the vaccine was a terrible killer, an immediate health danger to multitudes.  But was this true?

No, it was not.  In giving the figures above, I deliberately did not give the entire quotation, to show how people exaggerate or manipulate the facts.  The full quotation is as follows: the EMA “repeatedly said the benefits of the AstraZeneca shot outweigh the risks as it investigates 44 reports of an extremely rare brain clotting ailment known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) out of 9.2 million people in the European Economic Area who have received the vaccine” (emphasis added).  44 out of 9.2 million!  And as for the seven people who died in Germany, this was after about 2.27 million AstraZeneca doses had been administered!  Therefore, even if it was positively established that those people suffered clots as a result of receiving the vaccine, an incredibly tiny percentage of deaths were as a result of this vaccine.  Seven out of 2.27 million!  Based on statistics like that, no person can honestly claim the vaccine is a great killer.

Likewise, in April 2021 the EMA began a review to assess blood clots in people who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, after four cases of unusual blood clots in the U.S., one of which was fatal, emerged after immunisation with the shot.  But again we must take note of the figures: in the U.S. the vaccine had by then been given to almost 5 million people.[12]  Thus one out of 5 million died.  No reasonable person could claim that this was a huge health risk.  People do things every single day of their lives which are far riskier than this!  And when the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) urged that the J&J vaccine be put on hold, this was triggered by the fact that by that time six people had suffered from the “rare and severe” type of blood clot.  But this was after over 6 million people had been vaccinated.[13]  Six out of 6 million equates to one in a million.  To put this in perspective, the risk of one in a million equates to being struck by lightning – twice![14]

It is also true that by the end of 2021, many adverse reactions to the vaccines had been reported, including deaths; and anti-vaxers were claiming that as only 1% of adverse reactions are reported, there were really far more such reactions than people were aware of.  But here is what so many either ignore, or do not understand: they focus on the fact that some people die in the days or weeks following their vaccinations, and then they angrily claim that “the vaccines are killing people!”  However, when hundreds of millions, indeed billions, of people get vaccinated in a comparatively short period of time, it is a simple matter of statistics that some are going to fall ill from various diseases, and some are going to die in the days after their vaccinations.  It cannot be automatically assumed that these illnesses and deaths are caused by the COVID vaccines, just because they occur after receiving one!  This is a foolish and false assumption.  If a person goes to a hospital for surgery, and then dies a few days later, are we to automatically assume that he died as a result of the surgery?  Certainly not.  It is the same with deaths which occur after being vaccinated.  There were always those who were going to fall ill, and those who were going to die anyway, with or without being vaccinated.

It was to be expected that many adverse reactions would have been reported – for billions of people had been vaccinated by then!  Sarfati again: “With so many more people reporting, it should not be surprising that there are many more adverse reports than for other vaccines.  It certainly seems odd that if there were a conspiracy to hide ill effects of the vaccine, the CDC would go out of its way to encourage reporting them!  It is thus unfair to cite a 2009 Harvard study claiming that only 1% of vaccine adverse reactions are reported.  That is irrelevant for today, and in any case, this applies to all adverse reactions from the very minor pain in the injection site to severe….

“But to put it in perspective, whatever the numbers of VAERS-reported (not verified!) vaccine-caused deaths, they are a minuscule percentage of the total number of people vaccinated.  Suppose (arguendo) that it’s the highest number so far, 14,506 (as of 2 Nov 2021).  That is 0.0065% of the 223M people [in the U.S.] fully vaccinated at the time…. Even the proponents of hydroxychloroquine have said that it reduces the mortality rate of corona patients to 0.7% or perhaps 0.5%.  So… the vax is still about 40x safer than catching the Rona and treating with HCQ, or Ivermectin for that matter.

“In reality, even officially reported deaths are an even lower percentage out of the hundreds of millions of vaccinated people, and confirmed deaths far lower still… ‘Reports of death after COVID-19 vaccination are rare.  More than 459 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through November 29, 2021.  During this time, VAERS received 10,128 reports of death (0.0022%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine.  FDA requires healthcare providers to report any death after COVID-19 vaccination to VAERS, even if it’s unclear whether the vaccine was the cause.  Reports of adverse events to VAERS following vaccination, including deaths, do not necessarily mean that a vaccine caused a health problem.’”[15]

Christians must be completely honest in all that they say or write, which means we must not exaggerate or distort the true facts.  It’s all very well for someone to write, “Many are having terrible reactions to these injections, and many are dying”[16] – but how many is “many”?  If one out of 5 million dies, this is simply not “many”.  To say that it is “many” is a massive exaggeration, which is the same as a lie.  Especially when we cannot even be certain that the vaccines are responsible in every case.

What about so-called “breakthrough cases”?  “At time of writing [late June 2021], 2.75 billion people have been vaccinated – including many of the developers of the vaccine, who are thus ‘eating their own cooking’.  So we have an enormous sample size…. Some have been concerned with a CDC report in mid-April 2021 that more than 5,800 out of more than 75M fully vaccinated people in the U.S. have caught C19 anyway.  These are called ‘breakthrough cases’.  Of these, 396 were hospitalized and 74 people died.  But let’s work out the effectiveness.  For a 95%-effective vaccine, we would expect 5% of the 75M to catch it, i.e. 3.75M.  But only 5,800 caught it, i.e. only 0.0075%.  That is, the vaccine is really 99.9925% effective!”[17]

By 11 October 2021, almost half the world had received at least one dose of a COVID vaccine.  That’s well over three billion people.  So the evidence could no longer be denied: the immediate threat to health, or to life, posed by the COVID vaccines was virtually zero, which meant that the panic over the health dangers of the vaccines was unfounded.  With billions vaccinated, hundreds of thousands should have died if the vaccines were so deadly.  But this simply did not happen.  Anti-vaxers are literally denying the overwhelming evidence staring them in the face.  And that evidence increases with every passing day.

All this is in no way meant to negate the pain and suffering of those comparative few who may have been harmed in some way by these vaccines (in many cases it is far from certain, but in some cases it is true).  But the reality is that every day, people have adverse reactions to, and even die from, all kinds of things which are deemed risky to some extent – yet they still take those risks.  People have adverse reactions to all kinds of medications every single day, and at times these result in death.  Sometimes people go into hospital for what are considered minor, low-risk operations – and die.  Others have adverse reactions to certain foods – and die.  Life is uncertain.  It is full of risks, and we take risks every day of our lives without batting an eyelid.  People get into their cars every day of their lives – they know there is a risk of dying in a car accident, but they do it anyway, and some die.  So quite frankly, the indignant reaction of many professing Christians to being vaccinated is rather hypocritical, to say the least, considering all the other far greater risks they take all the time.  The short-term risks of taking these vaccines are just incredibly small.

To panic because an extremely small number of deaths have been reported – and not all verified, it is important to note! – after billions have received the vaccine is, quite simply, foolish.  As a very, very tiny percentage of people (compared with the world population) have died from the Coronavirus itself, those professing Christians who state that it is not a plague are correct, for it is not life-threatening to the overwhelming majority of people.  Why then do many of those same professing Christians not apply the same standard to the vaccines?  If there was no need to panic when such a tiny percentage of the world’s population died from the virus, there is also no need to panic when an even tinier percentage may possibly (it is far from verified in a great many cases) have died from the vaccine!

It is a great pity that so many who correctly saw there was no threat to life from the virus itself for the vast majority are so up in arms over the vaccines, when the risk of death from the vaccines is even lower than it was from  the virus (which was incredibly low itself)![18]

COVID Vaccines May Possibly Pose Some Risk to Health in the Long Term (But This is Far from Certain and Extremely Unlikely)

  A lot has been said and written about possible long-term side effects from these vaccines.  Carter writes, “Nobody can say that there is a zero percent probability that the RNA in the transfected cells cannot jump to other somatic cells, in which case this might lead to more serious autoimmune complications.  On the other hand, we cannot say with 100% confidence that this will not happen naturally when a person is exposed to any virus in the wild.”  “This is an unknown technology.  We will not know what will really happen until we release it into the public arena [as has now been done, with billions of people now vaccinated].  However, this is always true with everything we do.  Using common sense and past experience, most potential problems can be avoided.”[19]

And Sarfati makes a very important point: “long-term effects of medication are an issue only for long-term usage of drugs taken daily.  For example, the body can develop tolerance, become dependent, or the tiny side-effects can accumulate.  But this is not the case for vaccines, which are a single or sometimes a double dose.  After a month or two, there is nothing left of the vaccine in the body except antibodies and immune memory.  Conversely, a virus can linger, e.g. chickenpox virus flaring up as shingles decades later.”[20]

If you, the reader, take any kind of daily chronic medication, you risk certain possible side effects.  But you continue to take such medication every day of your life.  You cannot apply a double standard here.  Why are you prepared to risk possible side effects in the one case, but not the other?  This is inconsistent and illogical.

COVID Vaccines and Genetic Engineering: Is This a Possibility?

  The internet is awash with the most bizarre theories.  It is incredible that so many professing Christians actually fall for these nonsensical, sensationalist claims.  But such is indeed the case: everything from the vaccines “making us less human” to “making others sick when they come into contact with vaccinated people”.  It is truly sad when those who profess to be the Lord’s people fall for such absurdities.

One such theory is that a vaccine which uses a virus to deliver RNA into the cell has the potential for genetic engineering – to actually change our DNA.  However, “viruses already deliver RNA or DNA to our cells on their own and we don’t call this ‘genetic engineering’.”[21]

Let us examine this theory more closely.  The following from Dr Robert Carter is a very good answer:

“Is it possible that the vaccine could change our DNA?…. here is a list of reasons why the probability is vanishingly small:

“1. Viruses already inject DNA and RNA into our cells.  With rare exceptions, this material does not make it into our genome.  The HIV virus is notorious for making copies of itself that then get incorporated into our DNA, but they have specific mechanisms and genetic sequences for doing so.  The RNA in the new vaccines has none of those features.  Even though the wild version of the virus used in the AstraZeneca vaccine can also do this, it is not known to cause any diseases.  Even so, the RNA contains but one or two protein-coding genes.  This is not enough information to do anything in the cell.

“2. Our cells produce massive amounts of RNA already…

“3. The amount of RNA being used is minimal.

“4. Any cell that takes up the foreign protein gene will be killed by the immune system.  At least, this is what is supposed to happen and indeed is what does happen in nearly all cases.  A person whose body fails to respond in this way is at high risk of death from any infection, and the RNA vaccine is not an infectious agent.  The immune system is exceptionally complex, and we cannot say that every single person will respond in the same way.  But if this is a concern, it should be a concern for all viral infections as well.

“5. The arm muscles are far from the gonads.  So even if some cells incorporate the RNA (in the form of DNA) into their genomes, it will be difficult to pass this to the next generation.  Again, nobody can say it is impossible, but there is little reason for considering it to be probable.  Then again, we have sometimes been surprised by biology.”

Then comes his summary, which if read carefully makes sound sense – and common sense as well, for it is a balanced approach (sadly lacking in the conspiracy theories doing the rounds):

“Considering all these points together, as a scientist with a strong background in genetics, I believe the risk of the ‘genetic engineering’ of people is extremely small…. We can always be surprised, but everything we do know tells us that the new technology should be safe.  And that is an important consideration.  Even when acting out of an abundance of caution, we have to make final decisions based on positive knowledge, not the fear of potential unknowns.  This is something that applies to daily life.  If we cannot make decisions based on what we know, we would be paralyzed with fear and unable to do anything.  We could not eat for fear of food poisoning.  We could not drive for fear of drunk drivers.”

And a good conclusion to this section, from Dr Sarfati:

“The concerns about ‘genetically modified humans’ or ‘gene therapy’ are simply nonsense.  The RNA doesn’t even get into the cell nucleus, because translation occurs outside it.  So reject misinformed pronouncements like ‘this is not a vaccine but gene therapy,’ because it doesn’t touch our genes!  Also, the cell that has been injected is destroyed by the immune system.  Finally, we are not Lamarckians: acquired characteristics are NOT passed on.  The RNA vaccine is nowhere near the reproductive cells.

“When it comes to AAV vector and RNA vaccines, a person has far more foreign human DNA and RNA in his system if he has received an organ transplant, or even a ‘probiotic’ live culture yoghurt…. So please reject conspiratorial nonsense about generating transhumans especially alarmist claims that they would no longer be Adam’s descendants (so presumably could not be saved by the Last Adam and Kinsman-Redeemer, Jesus Christ).”[22]

COVID Vaccines and Population Reduction: Is This a Plausible Threat?

  What about the concern over population reduction by vaccines?  Could the COVID vaccines be used to reduce the population, in accordance with the desires of eugenicists, by secretly infecting people with life-threatening substances, for example?

There are some scientists who are very concerned about this possibility.  Dr Michael Yeadon, Pfizer’s former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy and Respiratory, who spent 32 years in the industry, holding the most senior research position in his field, is just one of many scientists who believe it could be done [note: “could”, not “is being” – an important distinction]:[23]

“[I]f you wanted to introduce a characteristic [to the vaccines] which could be harmful and could even be lethal, and you can even tune it to say ‘let’s put it in some gene that will cause liver injury over a nine-month period,’ or, cause your kidneys to fail but not until you encounter this kind of organism [that would be quite possible],” he said.  “Biotechnology provides you with limitless ways, frankly, to injure or kill billions of people…. I’m very worried… that pathway will be used for mass depopulation, because I can’t think of any benign explanation….

“The eugenicists have got hold of the levers of power and this is a really artful way of getting you to line up and receive some unspecified thing that will damage you…. it won’t kill you on the end of the needle because you would spot that [i.e. not an immediate risk to health].  It could be something that will produce normal pathology, it will be at various times between vaccination and the event, it will be plausibly deniable because there will be something else going on in the world at that time, in the context of which your demise, or that of your children will look normal.  That’s what I would do if I wanted to get rid of 90 or 95% of the world’s population.  And I think that’s what they’re doing.”

Others have made similar claims.  But it is important to bear in mind that they are just claims.  Note Yeadon’s words: “that would be quite possible”; “it could be”; and, “I think that’s what they’re doing.”  The most that may be said with any degree of certainty is that it is a possibility.  It is possible they would like to use such vaccines as a means of population reduction.  It is a documented fact that one-worlders want to drastically reduce the earth’s population, even by murder if necessary.  As Yeadon pointed out, the only way to do it would be to enable whatever is injected into one to work slowly, so as not to arouse suspicion and cause people to blame the vaccines.  If large numbers of people suddenly dropped dead or fell very ill soon after being vaccinated, there would be an enraged outcry and the plot would be exposed.

However, let us look at this sensibly, with cool heads.  “Possible” is not the same as “probable”, and it is a very long way from “definite”.  There are some serious obstacles to this, which make it a very remote possibility indeed.

Firstly, it would be very risky for the globalists.  It was always going to take some time for the entire world to be vaccinated, and if people began to start weakening and then dying in large numbers as the months went by, this would make multiplied millions suspicious long before the worldwide vaccination campaign was complete.

Secondly, so many multiplied thousands, even millions, of people would have to be in on the plot, from scientists working in the labs to hundreds of thousands of doctors.  It would be astonishingly difficult to ensure the complicity, and the silence, of all these medical professionals concerning the sinister objectives of the globalists.  All it would take is for a handful of honest, caring medical practitioners to blow the whistle.  And there are plenty of them in the world, with just as much medical expertise as the plotters.  Are they all going to be sworn to silence?  Multiplied thousands of them?  Are they all going to be threatened if they speak up?  It would be utterly impossible.  It would be a conspiracy so vast and logistically complex as to boggle the mind.

Thirdly, pharmaceutical companies want to make profits, and they want to keep making them.  Killing off large numbers of your customers is hardly the way to ensure this.  Yes, they might make billions from vaccinating the world; but it would be a once-off windfall.  When vast numbers are dead, they will never make such profits again.

Fourthly, if the one-worlders were going to use vaccines to reduce the world’s population on a huge scale, why haven’t they done it before?  They did not need to wait for the introduction of the COVID vaccines.  They could have achieved this outcome long ago, and with far less risk of their plot being exposed, via normal vaccines!  After all, multiplied millions all over the world willingly have their children vaccinated every year against smallpox, measles, mumps, etc.  There was no need to wait for the manufactured COVID “crisis” and its vaccines.  For decades, anti-vaxers have been wrong about the supposed terrible dangers of all these other vaccines; so why should we trust their theories now?

The Real Danger: COVID Vaccines are the Excuse for Implementing Global People Control!

  This is the real danger!  This is what believers should be concerned about – that the vaccines are being used as instruments to usher in global population control.  This is what the entire Coronavirus insanity is all about.  It always has been.  The vaccines are just an excuse.  The real objective is to ultimately get all the world’s population into an interlinked database, with a digital ID containing all their personal information: medical, financial, marital, domestic, employment, religious, etc.

To this end, as the vaccine rollout got under way, countries began developing so-called “vaccine passports:” an official document to prove that the person has had the vaccine, but which in time could be developed into a digital tracking device and personal information repository, immediately accessible to any official requiring it.

Even a prominent liberal and feminist, Naomi Wolf, spoke out against these vaccines, saying: “I cannot say this forcefully enough: This is literally the end of human liberty in the West if this plan unfolds as planned.”[24]  She is correct.  The developed world will be a gigantic slave plantation.

“‘Vaccine passport’ sounds like a fine thing if you don’t understand what these platforms can do,” she said.  “I’m the CEO of a tech company.  I understand what this platform does.  It is not about the vaccine or the virus, it is about your data.  What people need to understand is that any other functionality can be loaded onto that platform with no problem at all.”  “Microsoft is talking about merging it with payment plans, your networks can be sucked up, it geolocates you wherever you go.  All of your medical history can be included – this has already happened in Israel.”  “Six months later, we’re hearing from [anti-COVID vaccine] activists that it [Israel] is [now] a two-tiered society and basically activists are ostracized and surveilled continuously.”

“It is the end of civil society and they are trying to roll it out around the world,” she said.  “It is absolutely so much more than a vaccine pass, it is – I cannot stress enough that it has the power to turn off your life, or to turn on your life, to let you engage in society or be marginalized.”

Yes, the great danger of the COVID vaccines is people control.  As Wolf said, It is not about the vaccine or the virus, it is about your data.  Herein lies the real threat.  It is nothing less than a plot to enslave the world’s people, placing them under the control of their one-world masters.  The vaccine is just the excuse to get the people of the world to accept the “necessity” for possessing a digital tracking device.  It is not about the virus or the vaccine.  It is about global people control.

How are they getting around the fact that this is a massive intrusion into the private lives and liberties of citizens?  Easy: various governments have stated that they will not do anything themselves, but will simply co-ordinate with business corporations to force it on the people.  In the U.S., White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that the vaccine passport “will be driven by the private sector.  Ours [i.e. the government] will more be focused on guidelines that can be used as a basis.”[25]  In other words, in many cases it may not be government-mandated, but businesses will insist on it and then refuse to deal with unvaccinated people – enabling governments to claim their hands are clean.

Clever.  In a diabolical way.  And it is in the process of being implemented, all over the world.

What’s more, the powers-that-be can potentially keep this going forever.  All they have to say is that there is a new variant, a new strain – or a completely new virus – and everyone has to be vaccinated again.  It is entirely possible that governments could start demanding that citizens receive an annual vaccination, like a flu shot.  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu put forward the idea of a six-monthly vaccine schedule, saying, “The vaccines we have, no one knows how long they last…. We need to prepare for the worst scenario.  The worst scenario is that we have to vaccinate every half year.”[26]  No, Sir, the worst scenario is that we will be forced into this big fat lie every half year.

A few, at least, have seen through this nonsense, but whether their opposition will be enough to roll back this juggernaut remains to be seen.  The World Health Organisation itself has admitted to “uncertainty” over whether or not COVID vaccines actually prevent transmission of the virus – and at one point declared that it did not recommend implementing “vaccine passports”.  A WHO spokeswoman, Margaret Harris, said: “We as WHO are saying at this stage we would not like to see the vaccination passport as a requirement for entry or exit because we are not certain at this stage that the vaccine prevents transmission.  There are [also] all those other questions, apart from the question of discrimination against the people who are not able to have the vaccine for one reason or another.”   And the CEO of the World Travel and Trade Council, Gloria Guevara, said, “We should never require the vaccination to get a job or to travel.  If you require the vaccination before travel, that takes us to discrimination.”

Of course, having tasted the power over people’s lives that a mandatory vaccine would give them, many governments simply chose to ignore warnings like these, even when emanating from their beloved WHO.

The development of the technology to control all human beings on the planet – whether via a “vaccine passport”, a microchip implant, or whatever form it takes in the end – is extremely sinister and dangerous.  It would not be the mark of the Beast (Rev. 13:16-18), as I explain in detail in Plans for a Coronavirus Vaccine and Digital ID Spark “Mark of the Beast” Hysteria.[27]  But it is 100% correct to say that it would mean the end of human liberty.  All true freedom would be gone.  The one-worlders would know people’s whereabouts at any given time, their occupations and incomes, how they use their money, their religious affiliations – everything.  Such information in the hands of the United Nations, the governments of countries, and the Vatican and its Jesuits would be truly mind-boggling.

And it is definitely in the pipeline.  The Coronavirus was just the beginning, of this we may be certain.  It has enabled the globalists to see how the world would react to vastly increased governmental people-control measures.  The powers that be now know that it worked spectacularly well.  And even if they don’t fully succeed in their plans this time (and they might – it’s too early to tell), just wait: down the line – perhaps a year, perhaps two, perhaps more – there will be another worldwide “crisis”.  Only by this time, the people of the world would have already been conditioned into accepting greater and greater State control over every aspect of their lives.

Conclusion: What Does the Lord Require of Us?

  In 2021 the “vaccine issue” came to dominate the conversations of Christians to the point where they spoke about little else.  This was very unscriptural.  There are far more important matters.  Yes, of course believers need to understand this issue, and expose it. But not solely!  Not to the neglect of sound doctrine, or living for Christ!  Brother, sister, when last did you meditate upon the mercy of God to sinners in the Gospel?  The beauties of the Lord Jesus Christ?  Or the doctrine of divine sovereignty?  Electing love?  Justification?  The glorious things spoken about Zion in God’s Word?  The world to come?  Professing believers are arguing about the vaccines, misreading prophecy, scaring themselves silly, latching onto wild and unbiblical conspiracy theories.  If you are guilty, ask yourself this: Is this what my life is going to be all about from now on – resisting the vaccine?  Is this really what the Lord wants me to be focused on?  If so, where is the scriptural authority for such a position?

You say – rightly – that you hate this “new normal” in the world.  So do I.  It is terrible.  But it is here, and we have to live with it.  Don’t you see that while you are getting so worked up about the evils of the “new normal” in the world, you haven’t noticed that you’ve accepted a “new normal” in the Church, and in your own spiritual life?  For you have made it “normal” to spend your precious time talking about the vaccines, resisting the vaccines, crusading against the vaccines, looking askance at those believers who get the vaccines.  This is not the mission of the Church of Jesus Christ!  No Christian sins in being vaccinated.  Many professing Christians, even when they say they know the vaccine is not the mark of the Beast, act as if it is!

I pose this question to you: did the Great Commission come to a grinding halt the day the COVID vaccines were released?  I hope you will answer, No, of course it did not.  But if or when “vaccine passports” become mandatory, how will a man who is called by the Lord to be a missionary fulfil that high calling, and go to the foreign country he is called to evangelise, unless he is vaccinated?  It will be impossible.  The stark reality is that the vaccines are becoming mandatory.  They may not become so in every single country, but in many countries they will be.  We may hate the fact (I certainly do) that this is enabling vast people-control measures across the entire world; but hating it is not going to change a thing.  This is the reality now. The world is becoming a gigantic slave colony.  Even though this is true, however, the Great Commission remains in force until the Lord Jesus returns.  So then, as the world powers increasingly demand that people be vaccinated before being able to travel, there is only one way men will be able to leave their home countries and go to other lands to preach the Gospel, and this is by being vaccinated!

Now this means, on the one hand, that if a believer insists it is somehow sinful to be vaccinated, he is saying in effect that the Great Commission is over.  On the other hand, if he says that it’s all right for a missionary to be vaccinated, then it must be all right for any Christian to be vaccinated.  It cannot be sinful for one but not for another!

It may be relatively easy for Christians in some places to say firmly, “I will never be vaccinated!”  It is easy to say this if you are never going to travel internationally.  But do you also plan to never leave your province or state – or perhaps your town?  For it may come down to this – travel bans even between towns.  In addition, do you want to be barred from most shops, parks, and other venues, not to mention most jobs?  If you want to live the rest of your life like that, that is your choice.  But I and many others certainly don’t.  And many others can’t – for they will lose their jobs if they are not vaccinated; and no one has to suffer that for the sake of refusing a vaccine!  Not biblically.  The Lord commands no such thing.

Please brethren, enough with the vaccine hysterics!  Return to what’s really important in the Christian life.  May the Lord enable His people to view this entire matter biblically!

As was stated in the Introduction, getting vaccinated is not the problem, in and of itself: although the virus is not a deadly plague, and the vaccines are not needed to save the vast majority of lives, many who contract it do suffer long-term health issues, and the vaccines can prevent these.  The real problem is that the COVID-19 vaccines are being used as the excuse, by one-worlders, to implement massive people-control measures and to eliminate freedoms; and the believer is right to be very concerned about this aspect of it, and to do what he can (if there is anything he is able to do without resorting to sinful methods) to oppose it.

However, very few believers will be in any position to do much to oppose it, and it may indeed be the Lord’s will to permit such people-control to come into being.  And it is at this point that the Christian must be wise, and very careful not to adopt an anti-biblical stance.  For the fact is that there have been many times in the history of the Christian Church when believers have had to carry ID documents, work permits, etc.  And as dictatorial as such laws were, they complied with them, for to rebel against them would have no biblical support (Rom. 13:1-7), and thus would not have the Lord’s blessing.  Throughout history untold numbers of Christians have been slaves.  Modern westerners have become used to demanding their “rights”, but these are a comparatively recent invention when measured against the long history of the world.  Slaves, including Christian slaves, had no rights and no liberties.  And this would be the state of all Christians in modern times if global people-control measures are implemented.

But what does God’s Word say?  Never once does it command slaves (“servants” as the word is rendered) to rise up and rebel.  Instead it says, “Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.  Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather” (1 Cor. 7:20,21).  The Christian who is a slave is to be content to serve God as such.  Yes, if there is a legitimate way for him to gain his freedom he may use it; but if not, he is not to care for the fact that he is a slave, but to serve the Lord in that position.
