Episode 89

COVID Vaccines and Christian Conscience

My wife Chelsea returns to Truthspresso to discuss COVID vaccines and related political and Biblical issues.

Rather than taking a hard-line approach, we try to present some information we could gather. We encourage weighing all factors according to the Bible and Christian conscience.

Questions we address include

  1. To what degree do the various COVID vaccines rely on fetal cell lines?
  2. How are the new mRNA vaccines different from traditional vaccines?
  3. Are there concerns with rushing the new vaccines?
  4. What are possible side-effects of the COVID vaccines?
  5. Should Christians favor making vaccines mandatory?

Chelsea has worked as a Registered Nurse (R.N.) in Pediatrics and in labor and delivery. She also holds a post-Master's certificate in Certified Nurse Midwifery (C.N.M.) and has delivered about 100 babies.
