Alexander Rucker,

The honor and respect deserved, is conditional upon those leaders meeting the qualifications of "For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil." Too many leaders, regardless of whether in the church or government, embrace evil. And while the office they hold by the power of men deserves respect, all respect deserved and power over believers is dependent on what their character shows us. God defines for us those he has empowered to rule our affairs. Believers are not to yield to evil, but instead, resist even unto death of the body.

Your concern is real, but you & others facing this dilemma should proceed carefully. Give it time to see what the effects (in the short & long term) are. I know there's a lot of misinformation out there & this can increase worry to some folk. But I don't see anything sinister about this vaccine; I feel it is a genuine attempt to curb the virus' spread, without any DNA altering chemicals, etc.

However, like other new vaccines, only time will reveal its effectiveness, its durability, & any side effects. If you, or your family, by some chance get the Covid, then taking the vaccine & other medical help would be the prudent thing to do. Yet in this, as all things, we have to trust God for His protection, help & our recovery. Though nothing beats common sense & taking the necessary precautions when near others - the virus won't chase you or target you - one needs to go to it. Stay strong - trust the Lord.
