    I am a believer in God and read from the king's Jame bible. I would like to no do you think God dosen't want us to take the convid19 vaccination. I'm 73 & i took it but I have a friend who has all kinds of sickness but will not take it because she believe God wants her to trust his power to heal her

    My question is there any where in the bible I can tell her to read to insure her that by taking the vaccine dosen't weaken her belief in God

    I would respect your friend's belief and faith in our Lord. I feel the same way. If your friend has faith the size of a mustard seed and doesn't doubt God will protect her/him, nothing is impossible.

    Hello Nellie,

    I hope that my reply will in some way help to answer your question. I can relate to your friend's belief system, as I too was once erroneously taught the same doctrine as a child. We were taught that going to the doctor for any reason showed a lack of faith and would ultimately result in being punished by God for our disobedience. I give thanks to God for opening my eyes years later and for giving me discernment to recognize false teachings.

    To answer your question regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, and/or receiving any other medical treatment is against God's Will, I would go to scripture (KJV). Matthew 9:12 says "But when Jesus heard that, He said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick." In other words, Jesus was saying that those who are in good have no reason to go and see a physician. Another point that could be illustrated is the fact that the apostle Luke was a physician. We as Christians should always maintain our faith in God, whether it be to give us strength during times of weakness, or healing during times of sickness. God gave man the wisdom to become a doctor in order to help those who are sick. Maintaining our faith is always essential to our Christian journey. When we go to the doctor for medical advice or treatment, we put not our trust solely in their knowledge, but rather put our trust in the Lord that He will give the doctor wisdom and guidance to treat us in a manner that will result in better health.

    Hope this helps!

    God Bless,

    Andrew
