A Proclamation on Vaccinations
WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: BE IT KNOWN, BASED UPON THE TEACHINGS OF THE
BIBLE, IT IS OUR RELIGIOUS CONVICTION NOT TO HAVE OUR CHILDREN
Law 97-280, passed by the 97th Congress of the United States of
America, declares the Bible to Be the "Word of God" and
directs citizens to "study and apply the teachings of the Holy
Scriptures. "The Bible teaches that the truthfulness of an issue
is to be sought and should stand on no less than two or more witnesses
(Deuteronomy 19:15). A diligent search for truth on the safety and
effectiveness of vaccinations reveals there are many studied, informed
and qualified witnesses who have found and teach that there are
serious health risks involved with vaccinations. Even Senate Bill 732
before the 103rd Congress of the United States known as the
"Comprehensive Child Health Immunization Act of 1993", made
known the fact that there are risks to vaccines. The following words
are from that bill: Vaccine information materials should be simplified
to ensure that parents can understand the benefits and risks of
vaccines (emphasis added).
BE IT KNOWN THAT WE HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO SUBJECT OUR CHILDREN TO THE
RISKS OF VACCINATION. TO DO ANYTHING LESS WOULD BE IRRESPONSIBLE AND
SINFUL AS CHRISTIAN PARENTS.
Bible teaches that there are clean and unclean animals and that God's
people are not to put the unclean into their bodies (Deuteronomy 14).
Furthermore, the Bible teaches that Ye shall not eat of anything that
dieth of itself; (Deuteronomy 14:21) and hut flesh with the life
thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. (Genesis 9:4)
Vaccines are often made of, or in bodies, fetuses or eggs of said
unclean creatures. The process of creating the vaccine often causes
said creatures to die in the process (i.e., dieth of itself). Many
vaccines are made in or of the blood of diseased animals. What? know
ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you,
which ye have of God, and ye are not your own. For ye are bought with
a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which
are God's. (I Corinthians 6:19,20)
BE IT KNOWN THAT WE HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO HAVE OUR CHILDREN VACCINATED.
TO DO SO WOULD BE TO VIOLATE THESE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE.
Bible teaches that we are not to harm or wrong our neighbor (Romans
13:10: James 2:8). Our decision to decline vaccinations does not wrong
or threaten our neighbor. If vaccinations are truly effective then
vaccinated neighbors would be in no danger from someone who is not
BE IT KNOWN OUR DECISION TO NOT HAVE OUR CHILDREN VACCINATED DOES NOT
ENDANGER OR HARM OUR NEIGHBOR AND THUS OUR NEIGHBOR HAS NO JUST CAUSE
TO EVER TRY TO FORCE VACCINATIONS UPON OUR CHILDREN.
Bible teaches children are a gift from God to the parents (Psalm
127:3) and further teaches the parents (not the state) are entrusted
with the care and welfare of the child (I Timothy 5:8). The Bible also
teaches there have been times in history when evil government and
government employees have attempted through force, intimidation color
of law to harm and destroy the children of God's people (Exodus I and
2 and Matthew 2).
BE IT KNOWN THAT WE HAVE CHOSEN TO DO OUR GOD GIVEN DUTY AND
RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT AND DEFEND OUR CHILDREN FROM ANY SUCH FORCE
OR INDIVIDUALS BENT UPON SUBJECTING OUR CHILDREN TO THE RISKS OF
Bible teaches that when man's law contradicts God's Law, His people
must obey God over men. But Peter and the apostles answered and said,
'"We must obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:29) There is
much Bible Case Law in support of this position such as Daniel Vs
Darius (Daniel 6) and Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego vs.
Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 3:13). Concerning the safety of children, both
the Hebrew midwives (Exodus 1) and the parents of Moses (Exodus 2)
refused to obey the law of man that put the children in peril. By
faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his
parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not
afraid of the king's edict. (Hebrew 11:23)
BE IT KNOWN SHOULD ANY POLICY, EDICT, OR LEGISLATION OF MAN DECREE OUR
CHILDREN MUST BE VACCINATED, WE MUST AND WILL OBEY GOD RATHER THAN MAN
AND AS MOSES' PARENTS OF OLD AND WE WILL DO SO WITHOUT FEAR.
Bible teaches that God's people are to be humble, peaceful and
desirous of a tranquil and quiet life (I Timothy 2:2) and to do all
they can to be at peace with others. If possible, so far as it depends
on you, be a peace with all men. (Romans 12:18) However, the Bible
also teaches that if and when anyone (be it Indians in the 1800's or
government bureaucrats in the 1900's ) attempts to harm or to take
one's children or family members, one must respond appropriately. In
the case of the Bible story of Abraham's nephew Lot being taken by
kings men, there were very severe consequences incurred by them.
(Genesis 14 and Romans 15:4)
BE IT KNOWN THAT WE DESIRE TO BE AT PEACE WITH THOSE WHO MAY FEEL OR
THINK DIFFERENTLY THAN WE ON THIS ISSUE OF VACCINATIONS AND THAT IS
WHY WE HUMBLY EXPLAIN THE CHOICE WE HAVE MADE. BUT, BE IT KNOWN,
SHOULD ANYONE EITHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ATTEMPT TO FORCE
VACCINATIONS UPON OUR CHILDREN OR ATTEMPT TO TAKE THEM OR ANY FAMILY
MEMBER WHO DEFENDS THEM, AWAY, THEN WE WILL DEFEND OURSELVES AND OUR
FAMILY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF GODíS LAWS.
