I have been called an “anti-vaxxer”, but that label is inaccurate. I’m against all chemical drug-based medicines, with very few exceptions. I believe that some medically-applied chemicals have palliative value, mostly as pain-killers, but even those should be rarely used, and only at nominal levels that do not impede the ability of the person taking them to make informed free will decisions. I do not believe that people should be forcefully medicated or prescribed medicine that will make them do things they would otherwise not do.
God is my physician. I go to God for healing, and he heals me through the power of his Holy Spirit. Healing that comes through the power of God’s Holy Spirit is miraculous, not earthly. There are no chemicals involved. This option to be freely healed by the power of God’s Holy Spirit is the God-given right and inheritance of all God’s children, who today are known as born-again followers of Jesus.
So, no, I am not an anti-vaxxer. I’m a born-again follower of Jesus. If you need to put a medically-related worldly label on me, then call me an anti-drugger. I’m also anti-coercion, including when it comes to forcing medical advice or interventions on people. I do not force others to go to God for healing, so I do not expect them to force me to go to a state-sanctioned drug-pusher for healing.
This is what I believe, and I express my beliefs as my opinion. I do not expect you to share my opinion or even to respect my opinion. However, I do expect you to respect my right to hold an opinion, just as I respect your right to hold an opinion. These rights – both yours and mine – are inviolable, as they’re God-given. No law is above God’s law. This is what I believe.
I will not be coerced into taking drugs. That doesn’t make me an anti-vaxxer; if anything, it makes me an anti-drugger. The root of my opposition to taking drugs is that God is my physician. God heals exclusively by the power of his Holy Spirit, not by drugs.
God is my physician. He is also my Father. He advises me against taking drugs, and I abide by his advice. This doesn’t make me an anti-vaxxer. I am not an anti-vaxxer: I am a child of God and a born-again follower of Jesus.
Amen and yours truly,
