First off, I would like to say I do not discriminate against anyone who has received the COVID-19 vaccine. It is an individual choice and one that must be respected.
Now, that being said, I am getting pretty annoyed with the MSM, celebrities, politicians, Christians, and complete strangers telling me I’m selfish, horrifying, and, my personal favorite, ungodly for not getting it.
I shouldn’t have to defend my reasoning for not receiving the shot.
I shouldn’t have to tell people- no, I do not want children to die, because, according to multiple studies, the reality of a child dying from COVID is “incredibly rare”.
I shouldn’t have to tell people who have already gotten the vaccine that- no, I am not endangering their life, or the life of their grandmother, especially since they got the vaccine that’s supposed to protect them from “threats” like me, right?
I shouldn’t have to say any of these things. I am an American, I live in a free world, I have rights, my body my choice, right?
But, most importantly, I am a Christian who believes the Word of God is true.
No, I am not conveying that Christians who got the vaccine don’t believe in God, simmer down.
But, I believe the Bible when it promises:
- I have not been given a spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7)
- No “plague” will come near my house (Psalm 91:10)
- If I cry out to the Lord, He will heal me (Psalm 30:2)
- Whatever I ask for, in faith, I will receive (Matthew 21:22)
- Whatever I ask for in Jesus’ name, He will do (John 14:12)
- By Jesus’ stripes I am healed (Isaiah 53:3)
- God is with me ALWAYS (Matthew 28:20)
- God’s Word, and promises, will last forever (Matthew 24:35)
- I have been given authority over the enemy (including viruses) and nothing is allowed to hurt me (Luke 10:19)
You get my point.
Yes, the Bible says “love thy neighbor”, but since when does “love they neighbor” mean getting a shot I know I don’t need?
Does “love thy neighbor” now mean guilt tripping the nonvaccinated into doing something God has convicted them not to do?
If God has told me He is my Healer, my Provider, my Protector, which He has, then why does anyone feel they have a right to tell me otherwise?
Why do people believe it is their duty to demand I look to man to protect me rather than God?
I do not need a vaccine to be safe from a virus.
I have the blood of Jesus, that is all I will ever need.
“With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
