Immunizations and Fetal Cells
Within Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International members and leadership are free of will to adhere to the religious reasons to abstain from immunization, all within their personal responsibilities and relationship with G_d Almighty.
And with that we are providing you with the religious context and views supporting the request for religious exemption for vaccination.
Christian/Messianic objections against immunization are made on conviction and are inferred from the teachings of the Holy Bible, both the Tanakh (old testament) and Brit Chadashah (new testament).
Eagle Wings Charismatic Ministries International (EWCMI) does not tell its members ‘not’ to accept any immunization but is not in favor of it, and the final choice is kept with its members.
Thus the reservations a Christian/Messianic man might have to immunization arise from several doctrinal precepts.
Self-preservation under the 6th commandment.
The sixth commandment against unlawful killing requires an interest in the preservation of the lives of others, and of our own lives. It is clear that a person with a religious commitment to G_d’s law might reasonably understand that it is G_d’s will for him to abstain from immunizations.
Both the use of dangerous preservatives such as mercury, rest traces of formaldehyde, and the recombinant genetic technology used to create vaccines are reasonably understood to pose a health hazard.
The Christian/Messianic family has every reason to be free to make their own decisions about vaccines as part of their religious duty as Christian/Messianic believers.
Kashrut Law/Kosher living
Deut. 12:20, 12:23-24 (TLV)
20 “When Adonai your G_d enlarges your territory as He has promised you, and you say, ‘I want to eat meat,’ because your soul craves meat, then you may eat meat—all your soul’s desire.
23 Only be sure that you do not eat the blood—for the blood is the life, and you are not to eat the life with the meat.
24 You are not to eat it—you are to pour it out on the ground like water.
Lev. 17:10-11 (TLV)
10 “Anyone from the house of Israel, or from the outsiders dwelling among them, who eats any kind of blood, I will set my face against that soul—the one who eats blood—and will cut him off from among his people.
11 For the life of the creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your lives—for it is the blood that makes atonement because of the life.
Sanctity of Life
Going this far in taking care of our food and what we place in our bodies, it is the sanctity of life that we must guard. Abortions and fetal stem cell research is a topic that goes further than partaking of the blood it is partaking of life itself and thus any vaccination that uses, or has used fetal stem cells is an abomination against G_d’s law.
We believe that it is definitely inadmissible to use the methods of so-called fetal therapy, in which the human fetus on various stages of its development is aborted and used in attempts to treat various diseases and to "rejuvenate" an organism. Denouncing abortion as a sin, and even if someone may possibly benefit from the destruction of a conceived human life, abortion cannot be justified.
Fetal use contributes inevitably to ever wider spread and commercialization of abortion, this practice (even if its still hypothetical effectiveness could be proved scientifically) presents an example of glaring immorality and is criminal.”
Concerning the Current mandate
To demand from employers to have their employees divulge their personal medical information invades their protected right to privacy, and discriminates against them based on their perceived medical status, in contradiction to the Americans with Disabilities Act. (42 USC §12112(a).)
Indeed, the ADA prohibits employers from invasive inquiries about their medical status, and that includes questions about diseases and treatments for those diseases, such as vaccines.
The right to refuse forced inoculations implements the internationally agreed legal requirement of Informed Consent established in the Nuremberg Code of 1947. (http://www.cirp.org/library/ethics/nuremberg/).
As the Nuremberg Code established, every person must "be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or another ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision" for any medical drug.
