• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    i have to answer 3 questions
    1. Please identify your religious beliefs, practices, or observances which conflict with the company's Covid-19 vaccination requirement.
    2. Please describe how your religious beliefs, practices, or observances conflict with receiving a Covid-19 vaccination.
    3. Please fully describe the facts, circumstances and reasons you feel an accommodation should be made in this circumstance.

    I've plan to explain my feelings on the development of the vaccine and how i would feel like i am sanctioning the further development of drugs using fetal cells and that i cannot condone that due to how we have been wonderfully made, referring to Ps. 139 and that i believe abortion is murder.
    I am further going to assert that anything not done in faith is sin, referring to the verse at the end of Romans 14, to take i shot knowing what i know is a betrayal of my own conscience because i am a new creation in Christ i cannot do what i believe would not be pleasing to God.

    Can you my dear brothers and sister in Christ help me drive this home? Pleeeaaaaasee?
    i do not desire to fire up a debate just looking for a little help. Thank you.
    Hope this is in the right place.
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    1. The mRNA vaccines such as pFizer and Moderna do not use fetal cell artifacts.
    2. All other vaccines use replicated cells from one person in the 1950's so no new people are involved other than that one person over 70 years ago. No additional babies contribute to that technology other than the one that died 70 years ago. And the physical cells taken then have also long since died. We only have cells replicated from that left for us today.
    3. So are you going to say that neither you nor any of your family has ever had any vaccine at all as a result of that conviction?
    4. No matter how many people get vaccinated with the Johnson&Johnson standard vaccine technology - (whether that number is zero or a billion) no babies will be affected and even the cells from the one that died 70 years ago no longer exist - what does exist is replicated cells.

    Huh. Thanks for posting. I am vaxxed, but going to do a deep dive into what St. Paithos said

    In one of his books, entitled “Spiritual Counsels II:Spiritual Awakening,”Saint Paisios displays his gift of foresight by predicting that a new vaccine

    I've seen too much on the internet lately completely misrepresenting or outright lying about what good men have said in order to further their own political purposes. When I followed the reference link in the document, I arrived here

    36. Saint Paisios Warns Against the Vaccine
    A Vaccine: Those Taking it will be Marked

    Which is way too conspiracy related in it's interpretation of the quote it uses for me to take seriously. However, I do feel like the document as a whole is a good and relevant reason to practice religious exemption if one chooses. So, I'm going to order St. Paisios actual book, which I'm sure will do me good on balance to read as a whole. If I find anything different I will post an exerpt from a cell phone photo of the page. And if I find something completely beautiful and unrelated inside, I'll probably do that too :)

    While I probably could not help you with the first point, I feel like the document Ezana posted does make several strong arguments for that, which I was not aware of and now understand a little better. I have not checked the validity of any of it's referencing sources other than what I described above, but on the surface the seem like they may be legitimate, not sure. I probably could help someone write something on the Romans 14 point, and I feel like it alone would be valid reason for claiming religious exemption, if you are led in this direction. I'll give it a little thought and may post again later.

    Blessings to all who seek Truth, and may we always be counted among them.

    7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

    Seek Truth, find Truth
    Seek Fear, find Fear
    Seek Christ, find Christ

    May we all choose wisely

    $44. Ouch! Truth seeking is expensive lol. But, on it's way. I think it probably contains the quote as posted on the site, which talks about fish and lasers, btw. But hopefully something beautiful for me as well.

    Oh and congratulations on converting to Orthodoxy ;)
