Our Statement of Faith regarding The Mandatory Administration of COVID-19 Vaccines
Malakh comprises of a group of people who believe that God (YHVH) is Sovereign in our world, and that He sent His Son (Yeshua) to be our Saviour and Redeemer. Like many others, we have deep concerns about the direction in which things are heading regarding COVID-19, and because our aim is to live a lifestyle pleasing to the Father and reflecting the truth of the Scriptures, we are presenting this document in the hope that it might enable other Bible believers to make an informed choice on the use of the current COVID-19 treatments which are administered via injection.
Whereas we acknowledge each individual’s autonomy, and right to decide what choices to make concerning their bodies, this is our position, bearing in mind the fundamental scriptural principles upon which our faith rests. To disregard or act in defiance of these foundational principles would erode the very fibre of our faith; and to be forced to comply with rules which result in the above, for us, constitutes a significant breach of our human rights, and a serious threat to our freedom of choice.
After months of extensive research, discussion and prayer, we have come to the following conclusions as it relates to the subject at hand:
The Nature of the ‘Vaccines’
Most Bible believers are not anti-vaccinations – generally speaking. The majority have complied over the years with the vaccination of our children in the traditional methods where the vaccines were created from de-commissioned viruses and provided immunity as our bodies identified the foreign matters and created antibodies for future threats. As at September 4, 2021, the Oxford Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology offers the following definition for “Vaccine”: Any preparation of immunogenic material suitable for the stimulation of active immunity in animals without inducing disease. Vaccines may be based on dead or attenuated microorganisms; altered toxins (toxoids); or viruses.
From our studies, we have concluded that the substances currently being pushed, unlike traditional vaccines, do not provide immunity to the original Covid-19 disease, and the findings are even worse for the subsequent variants, some of which are totally vaccine-resistant. We therefore question these substances being considered true vaccines. Nonetheless, for the purpose of this document we will at times use the term.
Free Moral Agency
The Bible indicates in no uncertain terms that our Creator has made us free moral agents, with the power of choice – though encouraging us to make right choices. It is our belief that the State should not have greater power than the individual in determining what substances should be taken into their bodies. Any ensuing medical complication, health issues, physical, mental, psychological or financial repercussions will not and/or cannot be absorbed by the State, and as such, we should be allowed the freedom to decide whether or not we wish to take any substance into our bodies.
Our Position on the Sanctity of Life
It is our sincere religious conviction that human life ibegins at conception, that the sanctity of life is precious to YHVH, and that it is morally wrong to willfully destroy innocent human life. See for example the following Scripture references:
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you..
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward.
You shall not murder
The experimental COVID-19 injections manufactured by Moderna and Pfizer both used aborted foetal tissue in the testing process, and those manufactured by AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson used aborted foetal tissue in every step of the process – development, production and lab testing. Having come to understand the nature, composition, and manufacturing process of these current Covid19 vaccines, we seriously object to the use of these products.
Our position is based primarily on the long-standing teachings of the Scriptures and the Judea- Christian faith on the sanctity of life, and considering that the vaccines have been cultured with the aid of cell lines originating from aborted foetuses, as stated above, we currently have a strong objection to the manufactured products being injected into our bodies. Due to the Scriptural mandate for each of us to guard and protect our body which is the temple of God, (see 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 and Romans 12:1 below), we cannot be associated with using for health benefit, a substance that has been generated from the death of another human being, albeit, one(s) so young.
I Corinthians 6:19-20:
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
The Command to Avoid Anything Unclean
We have long held a tradition of not consuming or ingesting anything considered unclean according to the scriptures. This includes topical use as well as injections. This is a fundamental principle of our faith. In light of the fact that at least one vaccine has been created/cultured with the aid of an Adeno virus extracted from chimpanzees; and all being manufactured as stated previously, we find the injecting of these tainted substances into our bodies morally unjust, sacrilegious and unclean.
The Use of mRNA Technology
At least two of the substances being promoted as vaccines have been developed with the use of mRNA technology where the artificially-generated synthetic proteins could potentially have a DNA-altering effect on the recipients. This presents a serious challenge to our faith as the Scriptures command us not to do any act which will deliberately alter the genetic make-up of naturally occurring animals and plants – let alone mankind:
You shall keep my statutes. You shall not let your cattle breed with a different kind. You shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor shall you wear a garment of cloth made of two kinds of material.
The chemical components of the vaccine are not fully known to us, but from our research on what has been disclosed to the public, there are too many unanswered questions as it relates to the current and future effects in the areas of fertility, cancer, multiple organ damage, pathogenic priming, and other phenomena currently under study. We posit that in addition to the known health risks, there are many unknown risks due to the lack of standard testing and long-term study of these substances. Two of the present ‘vaccines’ include synthetic mRNA and lipid nanoparticles. Very little is scientifically known about the effects of these substances in humans including their short term or long-term effects on the body. We note also, that the trial period of the “vaccines” is still underway, hence, the current recipients are only subjects of a scientific trial. We do not wish to be forced into becoming subjects of a scientific or clinical trial.
The Nature of our Immune System
We believe that our Creator has made us in such a remarkable way, as to provide for natural immunity which is developed after we have been exposed to any viral infection that has not overwhelmed our systems. We can live a lifestyle which encourages having a robust immune system capable of preventing severe disease, and expect that if we become exposed to viruses and other pathogens, our bodies will create natural immunity after exposure. Recent studies in Israel, which has achieved a vaccine rate of over 85%, and is currently experiencing a serious wave of new cases, have shown that persons who develop natural immunity have a significantly stronger immune response against the virus as well as its many variants. We therefore encourage
people to engage in a number of natural immune-boosting lifestyle practices, as well as a number of prevention measures, and early-onset home-based treatment to guard ourselves from serious disease or from becoming a burden to the state.
Additionally, our research has proven that there are other known, safe, and effective alternatives both to treat and prevent COVID-19 disease, including well-known natural substances and holistic methods to eradicate the virus and to nurture and boost our natural immune systems.
Implications for not Taking Vaccines
There has been talk of unvaccinated persons being threats to the vaccinated. It is our belief that, as the ‘vaccines’ do not truly provide immunity, we offer no greater threat to the ‘vaccinated’ than they offer to us, and as such, denounce any act which tries to alienate unvaccinated people from schools, workplaces, social gatherings or any other place involving human interaction solely on the basis of their Covid19 vaccine status.
As Bible believers with a foundational faith in the truth of the Scriptures, we remain open to new knowledge as it relates to the treatment therapies being offered to the public for the current and future health crises. We are open to considering medical interventions that do not stand in direct contravention to long held, biblically-based religious traditions and beliefs. As it relates to the current Covid-19 treatments administered via injection, we categorically cannot participate in these measures without breaching the fundamental principles of our faith, and violating our conscience. We therefore ask that we be exempted from forced or mandatory compliance.
This document was adopted and agreed upon by representatives of several Bible believing communities both in the UK and overseas on September 5th, 2021 and may be used to share our official position with any group or organisation requiring this.
