When the Church Aligns Itself with the State to Discriminate Against the Unvaccinated
Every day, a precedent is being set for disposing of both individuals and their freedoms, which is growing more open, formal, and widespread, and in which all denominational hierarchy participate. We refer to the exclusion of those who refuse to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. One of the most serious cases that we have seen in a Western nation is that of Austria. As of February 2022, Austria is forcing its entire adult population to be vaccinated and all conscientious objectors face fines of $3,600 euros ($4,080 US), followed by a fine of $7,200 euros ($8,160 US), and/or 4 months in prison.
Beginning in 2022, the “Great Reset” (purging) will commence. Freedom-loving people will begin going to prison for state-sponsored and church-supported vaccine mandates. This is wrong on many levels. Regardless of your position on vaccines, we must all speak out against this oppressive vaccine enforcement mechanism that will put people in prison and destroy families. But instead, religious organizations have aligned themselves with the state to promote the ideology of the Beast of Revelation, citing Pope Francis, who said that taking the vaccine is an “act of love” to promote the “common good.” If this is not a precursor to the mark of the beast, where church and state work together to violate the freedom of conscience, then what is?
True Christian love and morals are devoted to the protection of human life and liberty. Real people are being vilified and punished as a result of these forced vaccinations. This is a violation of people’s humanity and fundamental rights. The religions claim to preach “love,” but their vision of love is one that welcomes oppression and persecution as part of the “Great Reset.” It is amazing how the modern church has become so blind as to change the biblical love of God for something that will justify seeing their members fined and imprisoned, and not say anything.
This is not the first time that so-called “believers” were on the wrong side of history, and I say this to their eternal shame. Most Christians largely ignored the evils of slavery. The majority of Christians in Germany and Europe kept silent about the Nazis’ atrocities. Sadly, most Christians today, including Seventh-day Adventists, are turning a blind eye to the deliberate, wholesale targeting and persecution of the unvaccinated.
We become complicit in this current crisis if we remain silent when unvaccinated men, women, and children are harassed and their lives and fortunes are jeopardized. Our Christian brothers and sisters are being persecuted, and the rest of the church has a responsibility to speak up for them and support them. If we don’t, we’ll be among the persecuted in no time. It’s only a matter of time before it happens. But I believe that our religious liberty leaders are going to continue to ignore this particular problem until it sneaks up and bites them on the behind. It’s only a matter of time before the lions come for you if we don’t speak up now. #sda #adventist #adventista
