Apologetics from an Anabaptist perspective

COVID confusion

The people who are opposed to the COVID vaccines point to the fact that vaccinated people are getting COVID anyway. That’s true, but it doesn’t tell the whole story.

The statistics here in Saskatchewan show that if you’re not vaccinated you are five times as apt to get the disease and 20 times as apt to need hospital care. In other words, if vaccinated people get COVID, it’s usually a mild case.

The really scary statistic is that only 10% of people over the age of 60 in Saskatchewan are not vaccinated. But that small segment of the population accounts for 75% of the people hospitalized with COVID.

Now this is just a personal observation, I don’t know what the statistics are. But there is a possibility of getting myocarditis from the vaccine. I don’t know anyone who has, but I know at least two people who have suffered life-threatening cases of myocarditis as a result of having the disease.

    Two classes… the clean and the unclean… this is unfortunate… why can’t we all just get vaccinated, right? Then we could “have church” like normal. But maybe that is not in God’s plan.. Just maybe, how can we know? Could be an opportunity for the Church of Jesus Christ to change format. We have been quite comfortable.. and pristine.. for quite a long time..
    So, it appears like we can view this as a medical or a health issue, or we can view this as a social or even ethical issue.
    Question…has our personal health and wellbeing become too important to us? This even includes looking at that very question and calling the unvaccinated person asking this selfish for this line of thought..
    Finally, do we truly long for Heaven… Like Sir Francis Drake said once “..in our efforts to build a new earth, we have allowed our vision of the new Heaven to dim”.

    Personally, I am quite thankful for public health efforts that have eliminated, smallpox, diphtheria and polio.

    I am as well. I think that many of the covid vaccine hesitant are not anti-vaxxers at all (fully vaxxed otherwise).. the covid vax is another issue entirely (of course, there are the ‘hard core’ anti-vaxxers out there in every community, but that is another topic).

I'd love to hear what you think about this. Please leave a comment.
