Why I Will Not Take The Jab

BY Herschel Smith
2 years, 11 months ago

Interesting take here (via WRSA).

This is an easy decision for me.  I am a Calvinist.  I’ve said it before, and I will persist until the end.  As philosopher Alvin Plantinga observed about beliefs, mine are incorrigible (and he was a Calvinist philosopher so he understood me).  I will not perish one second sooner than ordained, nor live one second longer than ordained.  My very seconds are numbered.  Isaiah 46:9-10, Ephesians 1:11.  I will wisely avoid it if possible because I have responsibilities and God forbids me to tempt Him, but I do not fear death.

See here for historical context on how ill-tempered and disorderly Calvinists can be.

I will not submit to a ghoulish plan to modify my RNA worthy of Josef Mengele.  See the Greek word “pharmakeia,” which doesn’t mean the administration of drugs (of which I am not against), but rather, “witchcraft, magic, the use of spells and potions of magic, often involving drugs–a magic spell,” see Galatians 5:20 Greek original, “witchcraft.”

For me, case closed.

    Herschel: Your Calvinist worldview – and its deliberate impact on your commentary – is the principal reason I read your posts.

    “I will not submit to a ghoulish plan to modify my RNA worthy of Josef Mengele.” – is probably the most succinct description of the not-vaccines that I have encountered. Good show.

    Yes. That modify the RNA thing. That just does not sound good to me.
    Not interested in the jab!!

    I’ve said before that the jab sounds like a high risk for autoimmune diseases. It seems that it at least agitates rheumatoid arthritis. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8009616/

    October 2020 – This Means That No Vaccine Can Be Found: “An analysis of more than 50,000 real-life SARS-CoV-2 genomes isolated from patient samples further showed that most of these virus mutations were already circulating, albeit at very low levels in the infected human populations. These results show that SARS-CoV-2 can mutate its spike proteins to evade antibodies, and that these mutations are already present in some virus mutants circulating in the human population.”  https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33112236/
    It doesn’t matter if you’re vaccinated or not, if you don’t have natural T-cell immunity, you’re vulnerable. So what happens is that the vaccinated filter out those viruses for which they have immunity, leaving the rest alone to replicate – so they get sick and maybe die, from the variant virus to which they are *not* immune. And they’re a pool of contagion for those who do not have natural immunity

    If you *do* have natural T-cell immunity – you got sick and recovered – you’re immune to the Fauci Flu *and* variants, for life: https://www.biznews.com/health/2021/06/28/covid-19-vaccine-immunity

    Until now I didn’t know what a Calvinist was. Sounds like I am one. After both so called political parties failed to represent me, I spent time considering what I really thought was right. After a few years of complaining to people that nobody in DC said anything like what I would, someone said
    Check out Ron Paul. Yeah,, I’m one of those, too.

    I am a Latin Mass, Orthodox and Ultramontane Catholic. I am 68 years old. I am not getting this “vaccination”. If the door to door “vaccinators” get close enough to me they might physically force me to get it.

    If they get close enough to me.

    God is Sovereign and has always been in control. Everything happens for his reasons and like you I neither fear this faux covid thing or death.

    For those interested in reading/reviewing actual scientific data/results regarding studies on the chink-pox remedies go here: https://ivmmeta.com

    This site has numerous studies research on all the drugs that are being used to treat the pox and the results. The most interesting to me is the drug ivermectin, as I knew it was being used successfully in poor countries that could not get or afford the pox-vaxx. The results seemed to be very positive. And according the studies on this website, they seem to support that conclusion, especially if given early upon diagnosis.

    Of course the government, the media and big pharma will not allow this information to be seen or distributed. Because if a low cost effective remedy was available, then their EUA (emergency use authorization) for the pox-vaxx would be illegal/invalid. And of course that would mean that all the corrupt politicians, their minions, big pharma & the rest of the cabal would not be making a sh*t-ton of money selling the pox-vaxx. Always follow the money!

    Here’s one anecdotal story supporting this. Michael Capuzzo (NY Times best selling author) was able to save his elderly grandmother from chink-pox death by hospital/doctors as he was able to basically force them to treat her with ivermectin once she was close to death.

    Of course he could not publish his story in the NYT’s. God bless the small Mountain Home magazine where it was finally published on 5/1/2021. I am surprised the website hasn’t been shutdown?

    Here’s the link: https://www.mountainhomemag.com/2021/05/01/356270/the-drug-that-cracked-covid

    God Bless & ya’ll take care.

    This topic is of huge concern to me, particularly because of Bidens recent call for employers to force their employees into vaccination. The largest healthcare network in my area has announced its employees will be forced to vaccinate. Other hospitals in the area made the same announcement, making it clear that the vaccine hold outs would not be employable elsewhere. I am willing to lose my job on principle, but feel like this should be drawing us together in protest and action, instead of waiting for everyone else to lose their job first. (Retirees, I’m asking you to think about those of us still trying to raise families here!). “First they came for the …. Then they came for me.”

    Even if you’re preterist and postmill,it’s rather obvious that the new order is working very hard to bring in a global total control grid, tower of Babel 2.0. For certain this work is not of God. The work of revelation 7:9 continues as Holy God is calling a people unto His throne of every kindred, tongue, and nation. The point: we will only ever be united in Christ. Taking the jab and slapping a coexist sticker on your car won’t get it done. It happens ONLY in Christ.

    You want to fight in god’s army against this wickedness? Then go tell somebody about Jesus!

    And please don’t @ me about the fake and corporate “christians” as the global system intends to encompass all three ; religious, government, and commerce functioning as a single entity. (Application made from rev 18) I’m painfully aware.

    I also like Romans 8:28-30 and Fred said it best, go and tell others the Gospel of Jesus.

    I like his reasons. Mine are slightly different.

    I’m in an age group where catching the coof probably ups my odds of dying. Except I’m not obese or insulin resistant and I’m in good physical condition. I’ve already had the virus, basically took the Zelenko protocol and ivermectin and the CCP coof was barely an inconvenience. My wife did the same when I had the symptoms and didn’t get ill at all.

    A friend at the gym several days ago asked me to pray for his brother – who was vaccinated and is in the hospital with the CCP virus variant du juor.

    I’m seriously amazed at the number of people who now trust government and paid government experts. Experts from the same agency that conducted the Tuskegee syphilis study. “It’s for your own good.”

    Never forget this one fact about the communists: They do not believe that an individual human being owns his own body; they believe that he belongs to the party and the state. And if you say that man was created in God’s image, they’ll just laugh. Communism and atheism go hand-and-hand, and they recognize no authority higher than their own.

    I am a Chrismated member of the Greek Orthodox parish in Greenville, SC. I converted to my faith when my Southern Baptists fell away from Christianity, like most so-called Protestants. Neither John Hagee nor Joel Osteen are Christians.

    I am a registered nurse with BSN from a major university in North Carolina. I specialized in perioperatve nursing, both in a civilian hospital setting and in the army reserve. I’m fully retired from both now. My wife is retired from both as well.

    I don’t get flu shots of any kind.

    My wife has gotten the annual flu shots for years, she took the J&J Kung flu shot, which is an actual vaccine, not a chemical that modifies human RNA.

    No one knows what the future effects of the mRNA chemistry will be, my opinion is that it will not be good for most people. None of the three anti-Kung flu shots are FDA approved, they won’t be for at least another year.

    I do not care about FDA approval. In fact, as I sit here I cannot think of anything that matters less to me, except maybe the price of eggs in Bangladesh.

  18. On August 1, 2021 at 8:59 pm, BRVTVS said:


    The J&J shot uses a virus to deliver the code for making the spike protein rather than wrapping the mRNA in a lipid. I don’t consider either to be conventional, as both commandeer the cellular machinery to produce spike proteins.

    FYI, there is quite a body of evidence that tetanus and pertussis share enough similarity to the viral proteins that standard (and thus much better safety tested) Tdap vaccines actually confer a substantial amount of protection.


    A while back the issue of possible DNA modification from the vaccine came up on captainsjournal. At the time, I stated it seemed unlikely this could happen. There now seems reason to believe that this could happen. https://science.sciencemag.org/content/372/6543/674

    If this happens, and the injection was correctly given in muscle tissue instead of the bloodstream (unfortunately not always the case and suspected to be the cause of some of the more horrific side effects):
    1. A small minority of muscle tissue cells would be affected.
    2. I’m not expert enough to say if the cells so affected would go on churning out spike proteins, simply die, or become a tumor cell, but I intend to keep an eye out for elevated reports of tumors in people’s arms for the next few years.

    Regarding that FDA approval: I don’t have a cable TV connection. But anytime I travel or actually see a television program, within a few minutes, I see a commercial where lawyers are hawking the chance to sue on your behalf for injuries and death caused by a plethora of FDA approve drugs. Meanwhile, Pfizer (as an example) has paid out billions in lawsuits over some of its FDA approved meds. Meanwhile, Pfizer/Moderna/J&J are off the hook for injury and death caused by their vax – FDA approval or not.
