Did you know the Bible prohibits getting vaccinated? Me neither. Where would people even get that idea?
Pastor Kent Christmas (his actual name) of Regeneration Nashville, who recently commanded the “spirit of homosexuality” leave children, says it’s a logical conclusion given that the Bible overrides all man-made laws.
Therefore, if there are mask or vaccine mandates, the Bible somehow gets you out of those.

I love my president, Donald Trump. I love the Constitution." pic.twitter.com/R9TQXFiMvj

… God needs some men and women in this hour that’ll quit laying down and copping out and saying, “Well, we’re citizens so we’re just supposed to yield to every law that’s passed.”
No, you’re not! You’re held accountable to this book. The law of God supersedes the law of men, just as the federal law is higher than the state law. So is the law of this book higher than the law that men passed in the halls of Congress. And so we have all of this argument about, “Do we conform? Do we not conform?” It’s really not that hard to figure out.
I love my country. I love my president, Donald Trump. I love the Constitution of the United States of America. I feel it’s an honor to be in this country. I thank God for our policemen. I thank God for our armed forces. But my first allegiance will always be to the Lord Jesus Christ…
Nothing he said explains why you shouldn’t get vaccinated, but that’s definitely his implication. I’m also not sure what Christmas’ love of the former president — or, in his mind, the current one — has to do with anything. Though if he really loved this country and the people in it, he’d get the vaccine and urge others to do the same.
Keep in mind: There are no federal laws mandating vaccinations. That choice remains a personal one. But we are rightly moving in a direction where the unvaccinated won’t be able to have access to certain jobs, schools, businesses, flights, etc. It’s the only way to protect the responsible members of society. But even then, social exclusion is the worst penalty anti-vaxxers will ever face. Other than their own mortality.
