Many people have been forced to make a decision about what to do with the vaccine mandates. They’ve either been forced to take it or to refuse it. They’ve also been forced with losing their jobs over it.
Thankfully, I haven’t had to face this mandate, but I know people personally who have. Some of them caved to the mandate and are now “fully vaccinated” if two doses is still considered full.
Some of my friends did not. It’s a personal choice that every individual must make on their own.
I’ve actually helped some people craft a religious exemption for their employer because they do have religious convictions as to why they do not want to take this.
Many others have taken this route as well. Some have actually had their religious exemptions denied while many others have been severely challenged on theirs. People are even being trained on how to challenge them.
One Catholic priest have a message recently and spoke to the mandate and have some very powerful words and honesty, what is probably the best reason to reject the jab. It’s really all the explanation that you need, though it’s likely not enough to appease the powers that be.
Father Ed Meeks who is the founding pastor of Christ the King Church in Towson, Maryland said, “There are certain realities about the candidates and their parties that directly impact our Catholic faith, and we must be aware of these realities before we cast our vote.”
When we say that Jesus is our Lord and King—what we’re saying is that we owe our allegiance and our loyalty first and foremost to Him and to His kingdom.
So, then, how does this principle work itself out in our daily life?
Our King tells us in his written word that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:19 – Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you which you have from God. You are not your own; you are bought with a price, so glorify God in your body.
Do you believe that?
Do you believe your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit?
If you take it seriously, is this…That no earthly king, or president or public health official or billionaire technocrat gets to dictate what we MUST put into our bodies…into these temples of the Holy Spirit.
Take a look at this powerful message.

Thankfully, these mandates have begun losing their power as federal judges and civil magistrates have stepped in to stop them. I just hope it continues. Get it or don’t get it, that’s you’re choice. But nobody has the right to force it on anybody else.
