Christians & Covid Vaccines: a Bible case for it & against it

Christianity is not a one size fits all religion. There are many denominations, interpretations and personal convictions. What is sin for one person is not always sin for another.

For example if a person has been taught and truly believes that it is wrong to raise their hands or use musical instruments in worship, and they do it anyway, then it is sin for them. If later they go back to the Bible and have a change of heart, believing that it is OK to do these things in God’s eyes, it will be no longer be sin to them when they raise their hands or use instruments.

The Bible says, it would have been better for them to have not heard my words, than to have heard them and turned away from them. It also says that a servant who sins in ignorance will not be punished as harshly as one who knows right from wrong and does wrong anyway. it says that we are accountable for what we know. We don’t all know the same things.

Taking this into consideration, I don’t think it’s the right way to act judging other Christians on how they are responding to the Covid vaccinations. The Bible is thousands of pages long and we all have different understandings of it.

That said, let’s look at both sides of this argument:


In WW2, some Germans hid Jews to save their lives. They had to lie to nazi’s about it. Yes, lieing is a sin, but God can see the condition of your heart. He knows when you are doing something that you don’t want to do, in order to fulfill other commands He has given us. This is why God gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit called discernment to help us discern right from wrong. These people were in the crosshairs of their own sin and other peoples sin, having to choose between lying or doing nothing thus allowing the genocide of God’s people to continue. The Bible says there is no greater love than to lay down your life for someone else. These Germans knew that they would be killed if they were found helping Jews.

In 2 Kings 5, Naaman, an enemy army commander, was healed by God and vowed never to serve any other God. But he said, ‘may the Lord forgive me for this one thing: When I help the king bow down in the temple of Rimmon’. The prophet Elisha, who God healed him through replied, “Go in peace”. God gave Naaman the green light to continue his job despite having to do something that was against God’s will, and that he didn’t want to do.

In Daniel chapter 1, Daniel didn’t want to eat things that God had told him not to eat. He asked the guard to let him eat vegetables instead. The guard said if you look unhealthy the king will kill me, but allowed a 10 day test. It worked in Daniels favor, but Daniel was willing to lay down what God had told him if it didn’t work, so that he could fulfill another one of God’s commands to serve his master well.

If the company you work for is on the chopping block by the government, like the guard was by the king, then maybe as a good servant you should make an appeal and if it doesn’t work out, then lay down your desires. God sees your heart.

Ps. 139 says, ‘you knit me together in my mother’s womb. You saw my unformed body; you planned all my days before one came to be.’

A fetus is a human and killing it is murder. If we know aborted cells are used in the vaccine then we are accountable for it. If it bothers you then you need to avoid nearly all vaccines for yourself and your kids and give up plenty of food and drinks that use them for testing as well.

Rom. 8:28 says, “God works all things for good.” Clearly He didn’t want an unborn baby to be murdered, but he has allowed good to come from it by creating medicine to protect future babies… (if you think vaccines and medicine are good)

If I was a fetus and knew my life could save others, then I would willingly give it. Who knows if God asked the child if it was willing to sacrifice its life for others. This could be likened to Jesus who was murdered, but willingly allowed it for our salvation. We partake of Jesus’s blood and flesh to this day.

Think of it in another way: If your ancestor made millions of dollars illegally, should the person who inherits it throw that money away? What if the inheritor uses the money for good? We acknowledge that the means of the financial gain was sinful and then we use the money for good. Murdering babies is bad. It happened decades ago. People using the replicates cells are trying to do good things with them.


The Bible’s Greek translation of ‘sorcery’ is ‘pharmakeia’ which is where we get our modern word ‘pharmacy’. The idea of medicine being sorcery is becoming a lot more apparent these days, as Fauci has been found funding research on how to amplify the emotion of fear, and also gain of function a.k.a. transforming a coronavirus originating in bats to more effectively attack humans. Earlier in the 1900s a polio vaccine was created which used monkey cell lines, which were later found to have a carcinogen virus, which can now be found in human cancer. The verses about God being our healer seem a lot more important as we see how man’s attempt to heal is at times causing long-term deadly side effects. Modified RNA and recombinant DNA often use cell lines from multiple sources, such as animals or aborted babies, to create things that don’t exist naturally in the God created genome. Some of these cell lines are very old or even immortalized, yet parts of the Bible say to not go near anything dead and that our years would be limited to 120. Even though the cell lines used from the aborted children have been duplicated for decades, how else will it stop unless people stand against it. It is proven that PlannedParenthood has sold aborted children in the recent past. Since the polio monkey virus incident, scientists have tried to make more pure cell lines to use however mankind is not all knowing. The second most used cell line in America is from a fetus aborted for ‘psychiatric reasons’, and surprise, we have a rise in mental illness in our country. Maybe we should go back to holistic, natural, God created medicine, instead of passing down side effects of generational illness?

Who is to say that the Mark of the beast is not a genetic marker? One of the signs of the Mark of the beast is that we will not be able to buy or sell without it, and right now in some places you cannot hold a job, go out in public, shop or travel without getting the vaccine. Agreeing to be forced to get a vaccine is like rolling over to usher in an age where everyone is conditioned to be ok with future medical mandates, preparing the way for the future mark of the beast.

While the Bible says to look out for the interests of others, that can be done through wearing a mask and isolating when sick, instead of being forced to get an experimental vaccine.

While the Bible says to obey the government as long as it’s not sin, our rightful leader is the constitution, not a president going against the constitution. I truly doubt God would want us to give up the freedoms that our forefathers fought for, and that he blessed us with, to bring us out from under tyranny.

Lastly, the first words God ever said to man was ‘go forth and multiply’ a.k.a. have children. He also gives us the gift of wisdom, with which some people have decided they would rather wait to see the side effects of the vaccine since there are many claims to fertility issues, while the survival rate of Covid is over 98%. The vaccine does not prevent people from getting or spreading the virus, which makes the vaxxed and unvaxxed no different as far as how their choice affects others.


So there is your argument for and against it upon Biblical principles. Pray about it, research it for yourself, and see what God says to you as an individual. If you are facing mandatory vaccination under threat of losing your job, I am so sorry and pray God’s provision and direction for you in whichever way he has to go.

Domestic Abuse

I’ve watched several friends stay in abusive marriages, and several divorce because of abuse. There are many reasons why people choose to stay in these relationships, though it’s hard to image why. I’ve listed some reasons at the bottom of this post, but lets attack the topic of boundaries for a moment:

We need boundaries. Without boundaries we will become victims of abuse and adopt a powerless mindset. We should have a standard set for ourselves of how we will allow others to treat us. If people do not treat us as we have designated, then we should not listen or continue in relationship. Here are some things that we should require, and reject, in relationships and conversations. These actions will encourage hope and self-control (empowerment), and help us escape abusive relationships. Boundaries cause the abuser to face the consequences of their own decisions while empowering us with the choice to leave if they don’t treat us with respect.

– 2 Chron. 7:14 – IF my people, my God-defined people, respond by (1)humbling themselves, (2)praying, (3)seeking my presence, and (4)turning their backs on their wicked lives, I’ll be there ready for you: I’ll listen from heaven, forgive their sins, and restore their land to health.

What we should require & reject:

  1. Humility instead of pride & arrogance 
    Verbal abuse, or other means of belittling you, should not be tolerated.

  2. Requests (prayer) instead of demands
    Use of fear tactics, physical abuse, or other means of control, should not be tolerated.

    God gave us dominion over everything but people. We need to respect others and protect their ability to make their own choices. If their choice is to abuse you, then you need to make the choice to leave.
  3. Seeking presence instead of things
    If someone wants something from you, without wanting a relationship with you, then its un unhealthy relationship. This should not be tolerated.

    If you are married and your spouse habitually has sex with you without trying to connect on an emotional level, it’s abuse.

  4. Turn away from wrongdoing instead of continuing to wrong you
    Refusing to change, though you respectfully ask and show them how they are hurting you, should not be tolerated.

Notice also that God waited for these 4 things from His safe place, Heaven.

– Heb. 10:26 – For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins

If you are in an abusive marriage, you need boundaries. Consider a temporary separation if you do not want a divorce. Once faced with the consequences of their choices, if they repent then go back to them:

– 1 John 1:9 – If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins

If they do not repent then divorce them:

– Rom. 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death

There are many reasons why people stay in abusive relationships. Here are a few:

– My partner will kidnap the children and disappear.
– My partner will spread horrible rumors about me.
– I’m nothing. I don’t deserve better.
– I was brainwashed to believe that I couldn’t cope without my partner.
– I’m more comfortable with what I know, than the unknown out in the world.
– My children will blame me and resent me.
– My partner will turn the children against me.
– My partner doesn’t let me out of the house.
– I have no friends or family to call for help anymore.
– I believe my partner when he or she says that it will never happen again.
– My marriage vows.
– My religion.
– I love her or him.
– My partner has all the money.
– My partner charges up all my credit cards.
– My partner will lose her or his job if I report this.

Other reasons why women stay in abusive relationships

Make a list of your reasons and confront them. Get out of the situation. There are churches, programs, and safe houses designed specifically to help you. It’s scary facing these reasons, but its wisdom to escape the cause of these abuses. Say no to the abuser and leave them today.

– Prov. 3:5-6 – Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight

– Ps. 18:6-19 – In my distress I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears. The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry. Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under his feet. He mounted the cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind. He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him— the dark rain clouds of the sky. Out of the brightness of his presence clouds advanced, with hailstones and bolts of lightning. The Lord thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded. He shot his arrows and scattered the enemy, with great bolts of lightning he routed them. The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at your rebuke, Lord, at the blast of breath from your nostrils. He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.

– Ps. 28:7 – The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.

– Jer. 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
