Christian Doctor Urges Vaccination after Personally Experiencing Side Effects

A doctor who experienced immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) after receiving several vaccinations for a mission trip says that he supports immunizations despite the risks. Matthew Loftus, a family doctor in Baltimore, said that Christians especially should opt for vaccines.

In an article published in Christianity Today, Loftus wrote, “I know the risks of vaccines quite intimately. Even so, I continue to take vaccinations, I ensure that my children get them, and I recommend them to all my patients… Like all parents—including, of course, those who refuse vaccines—I want what’s best for my children. As I have thought about my own story and studied vaccines, I’ve grown confident in this: The benefits of vaccines are far too great for us to refuse, and the risk of refusing them extends far beyond our own families. This is not just a medical issue, but an issue that touches on our faith and our public ...

[QUOTE]Are we going to believe the reports of people being injected with the syphilis virus, aids virus (taken to Haiti in the 80s by two US chemists), and the latest report of Ebola being a man-made disease or not?
The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe (Prov. 29:25) Non-believers scare me. God hath made man upright. God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions (Ecc. 7:29).

Guinea pigs are afraid to die. Believers have already passed from death into life.

Frank, completely agree, especially the soon coming of our Lord and Savior. I pray you and yours are well!

Mike, I think Jim has actually said before he thinks vacc's should be mandatory. I think parents should have the choice and not be penalized either way. Those who do vacc shouldn't be worried about my non-vacc'ed kids because they're "safe"... right...?

Thanks, Jim. But I perceive your argument isn't about what parents in third world countries do, who hold their kids in high regard. Peel away the layer of concern, and we find you promoting the vaccs to be mandatory. Different story.

ps, ours isn't a third world country, why take actions that pretend it is?

Jim, the vaccinations in these third world countries are sterilizing their girls. Over 90% of the vaccinations are given to girls only - and birth control hormones and outright sterilization compounds are present in the tetanus and MMR's they receive as documented by WHO and three independent labs. These people being forced by their governments to vacc their children - the crews show up in the village, the families bring out their kids, get their shots, are given a cocktail of medications to help deal with the 24-hr side effects and they're done. There is forced sterilization going on - has nothing to do with stopping measles...
Thanks sister for that information. I remember reading a few years ago that Bill Gates and others of his financial status were heavily involved in this sterilization through vaccinations in these 3rd world countries. I think they would probably say they were simply controlling the population, or to be more exact, the populations they don't think will be productive. What a sick and evil world we live in. Come quickly Lord Jesus, come quickly, amen.

civilized society? when children are maimed it is done in the dark, the doctors distance themselves from it and families are sent home to deal with it out of the sight of society alone. deeply tragic. then "behavioral" services are conjured up on taxpayer money which does nothing to pull the heavy metals or solve the autoimmune disease when the human body has been invaded with human dna and starts to attack itself, let alone whatever organisms have been introduced (such as the polio shot in the East results in a 12 time increase of acute flaccid paralysis). be it diabetes or whatever other reaction occurs, anaphlyatic shock, which came out of this industry. but people making billions on their cancer treatments as well, certainly wouldn't want to limit commerce by making non patented cures available to us? this society is in the dark ages.

Mike of NY, if you're going to live in a civilized urban society, having children vaccinated is called for. little germies are a hazard to themselves and others when they are not vaccinated.
I should very much like to visit a civilized urban place. Know of one? And "society" is one of those generalized abstract terms, used by those who reduce people to being part of a herd. You know, in effect similar to the way "public" is used to promote all kinds of bad things.

No, they should not have the liberty to opt in, for in doing so they are putting others at risk, and that is not good stewardship.

I suppose if the uneducated have the desire to go against God, science, competent physicians, and common sense, then they can all be quarantined on some far away island and live happily together with the filth running through their blood.

"However, should people want vaccs, they surely have the liberty to opt in."

Dr. Loftus AUTHOR...health means stewarding all the resources God has given us to bring about human flourishing and full image-bearing among our families and neighbors. Preventing the most deaths for the lowest cost with the simplest interventions is a core part of stewardship.

from the article. finally a comment that doesn't sound like it's from a Christian Scientist or a Jehovah Witness!

You may be revealing more than you hoped, Jim. You approve of the doctor's comment about "Preventing the most deaths for the lowest cost..." This is so classic. As someone wrote in response, the doc misapplies Scripture, and is parroting government-run economics. He is treating each child like part of a herd of cattle, not the person God created.

However, should people want vaccs, they surely have the liberty to opt in.

I used to be anti vaccine. Now I would consider that we should research it. If Ebola was in my village and there was a vaccine- I know exactly what I would do.

Jim,the article that you post may not sound like it's from a CS or a JW but "...Dr. Loftus[ /AUTHOR]..."
is "lofty" in his approach.
...much like Lincoln "links";Loftus is "lofty".
Just as an aside,I think that the body is amazingly resilient.Generally speaking,the medical community pushes a lot of drugs which are unnecessary.
The leading cause of death is sin. Thanks be to God who gives us eternal life through Christ,the ultimate Physician.

Whoa! Whoa!
All of this VACCINATION hype is getting the best of our senses. I am not trying to appear hyper spiritual. I want to provoke the Body of Christ to consider this:
We are going to die, and not before our time.
Have we already passed from death into life?
Are we succumbing to the bad reports of pestilences, adverse weather, rising cancer rates, inflation, etc. just like the ungodly? I think so. Just because a Christian doctor says we should be vaccinated, does not make it so. Where is our faith being directed?
When death comes to us, the lost can hear a message of redemption and know why we were not afraid to die. This is not our home. The world’s influence is causing us to think like the masses; like a herd of cattle. What are we doing anymore? Why is it we are not refraining even from these medical hoaxes? More and more we are trusting charlatans. We need to encourage one another about letting this world go. But instead we are preserving our lives.
I believe the Lord is looking for the man who will trust him with his entire essence and show the world Who heals.
Can we say with the apostle Paul “For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: (Phil 1:23)?

The blindness and hard hearts amongst those who continually push their sorceries and their satanic vaccines is becoming so much more obvious that God has given them over to their wickedness. I hope not. I hope they will repent.

Matthew 7:17-18 "In the same way, every good tree produces good fruit, but a bad tree produces bad fruit. 18 A good tree can't produce bad fruit; neither can a bad tree produce good fruit."

The fact remains that there is human DNA lines in two of the most popular vacc's in the U.S. from aborted babies. I find it a very credible concern, morally speaking.
