I’m so disappointed with our local churches. I finally worked up the courage to email the pastor of the church I’ve been attending since January (a Baptist church belonging to the Southern Baptist Convention). I wanted to inquire about his opinion on the vaccine and whether he ever intended to encourage his congregation to take it. I told him I was concerned because Franklin Graham has promoted it. Also, the Southern Baptist Convention president, JD Greear, posted a photo of himself receiving the shot, and has stated “These vaccines are cause for evangelicals to celebrate and give thanks to God.” The man favored to be the next SBC president, Albert Mohler, wrote an article presenting seven “points for consideration” regarding (ie: arguments in favor of) the COVID jab. In praising the warp-speed development of this jab, he even went so far as compare it to the miraculous moon landing of 1969. And lastly, SBC Life published a glowing article about a church which volunteered to serve as a vaccine site for local childcare workers, an event the pastor stated was “one more step towards a new normal.”
In my email to this pastor, I poured out my heart. I confided that I’ve suffered many sleepless nights, agonizing over this shot and its disastrous effects, and attempted to summarize it for him:
"It’s come to light that the virus is not the root cause of all the troublesome symptoms associated with COVID. It’s the spike protein. The spike protein has been shown to cause disease even when researchers removed the virus. And although it’s commonly thought of as a respiratory virus, it’s been found that it actually targets the vascular system.
So when someone is injected with the shot, what happens? The recipient’s body begins manufacturing these spike proteins. Dr. Byram Bridle explains what can then occur: “When it [the spike protein] gets into circulation, the protein can bind to the receptors that are on our platelets and the cells that line our blood vessels. When that happens it can do one of two things: it can either cause platelets to clump, and that can lead to clotting. That’s why we’ve been seeing clotting disorders associated with these vaccines. It can also lead to bleeding. And, of course, the heart’s involved. That’s why we’re seeing heart problems. It can also cross the blood-brain barrier and cause neurological problems… [ie: stroke, aneurysm]. In short, the conclusion is, we made a big mistake. We didn’t realize it till now. We thought the spike protein was a great target antigen. We never knew the spike protein itself was a toxin, and was a pathogenic protein. So by vaccinating people we are inadvertently inoculating them with a toxin.”
I have done hours upon hours of research. I am not a doctor, but I am a troubled Christian, a frustrated wife, a concerned mother, daughter, neighbor, and friend. I have connected with women across the country through an app called Telegram. There are countless mothers, teachers, and healthcare workers speaking out about what they’re seeing. We don’t have many outlets anymore with the current censorship campaign, but Telegram is one of the few which remain.
Teachers have reported that children are having nosebleeds and getting sick after a majority of the teachers got the shot. Women are experiencing abnormal menstrual cycles. There’s been an alarming increase in miscarriages and stillbirths, and a noticeable uptick in a pregnancy condition called IUGR, (Intrauterine Growth Restriction), a condition which causes babies to be born small. One doctor reported that a stillbirth happens “once in a blue moon.” She’s witnessed five in the last month. Umbilical cords filled with blood clots, stating she’s never seen anything like it.
5,165 deaths have been reported to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) so far, but historically vaccine adverse events are drastically underreported. Family members are reporting that most doctors deny any link between the vaccine and adverse events or deaths, so this number is probably exponentially smaller than the real one.

This was his reply:
“Thank you for you note and inquiry regarding the COVID vaccine. For time sake, let me answer simply… I have no plans to promote or encourage people here to take the vaccine. Neither I or my family have taken it and I told my doctor that I was not ready to take it. I may have to later this year just to get into Israel for a planned group trip since they require it… if I do take it, I personally will be taking it begrudgingly. Like you, I and my wife I done a great deal of reading and research about the matter. That being said however, as to others who do take it, or feel that they need to take it, I leave that up to them, just like the mask matter.”
This pastor, I feel, is towing the line so to speak so as not to offend or alienate any potential congregants. His sermons seem to be fueled by his own personal agenda (ie: a month-long sermon series on tithing prior to him announcing the church will be starting its own Christian school. He attends a Pastor’s Conference on the “problem” of church attendance, and a month-long series on the importance of attending/being involved in church follows.)
I’ve been so torn about attending this church, so I started looking for another church, only to be sorely disappointed by it as well. Turns out, it’s also affiliated with the SBC.
Here’s a quote from that church’s most recent sermon:
“Average attendance now across the United States is once a month. Once a month. We’ve had people that, because of COVID, haven’t come back to church. I’ve been vaccinated. And they tell me once you get vaccinated, I don’t need a mask. Praise Jesus. Amen? And so what COVID has done is not kept people out of church. It’s revealed people’s hearts. I heard Adrian Rogers say this-- ‘If you don’t have enough faith to take you to church every Sunday, then you probably don’t have faith that’s going to get you to heaven.’ Yeah, that’s a doozy. Jesus didn’t create this whole entity just so you could have an option of whether to go or not to go, and if you choose not to go, still claim that you’re a Christian.”
Another SBC pastor harping on the importance of attending church. Only THIS pastor goes so far as to imply you are NOT a Christian if you don’t go to church. Isn’t that a faith-by-works philosophy he’s peddling here? Please excuse my cyncism but I don’t think it’s a far stretch of the imagination to say that he probably attended the same Pastor’s Conference about the “problem” of church attendance that my pastor attended.
And I find it ironic that the same pastors and Christians who praise the Christians in China for defying government orders to attend church… are the same Christians and pastors who SHAMED pastors and Christians in the US for defying government orders a year ago. And now that it’s “safe” to return to church because “praise Jesus! We have a vaccine!” these pastors are metaphorically thumping Christians over the head for not getting their butts back in the pew. The hypocrisy is astounding.
And also, it’s NOT necessarily safe to return to church because these brainwashed churches are now filled with jabbed individuals who are transmitting these dangerous spike proteins to those around them. My children have been sick three times in the last three months and I have suffered side effects as well after being in close contact with jabbed individuals.
So… my prayer request. My prayer request is that God would help me to overcome the anger and bitterness that anyone who’s read this far has probaby sensed in this post. I’m so angry at our churches, our church leaders. Please pray for the wisdom to decide whether to continue going to this church, in spite of my better judgement. I don’t trust my pastor. Not one bit. But I do have young children and I don’t want to isolate them from others. Please pray for discernment. I know others are in my shoes too… please pray for them also!
Thank you to everyone on this forum. Even if you don’t read this or read all the way through it, it helps to get it out. Thank you, Pastor JD, if you read this too. Thank you for being the brave beacon of light and hope, a true spiritual leader. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
