COVID-19 Vaccines & Fetal Cell Lines

Why should we be knowledgeable about COVID-19 Vaccines?

  • The process reveals the glory of God and should stir our gratitude
  • We "need to be prepared for the coming debates that will affect your churches and communities...Discussions ..should be rooted in neighborly love (Mark 12:31) and wisdom (Prov 4:7)

To do this well requires that we seek out the most accurate information possible and base our judgment on God-given reason and guidance rather than on falsehood and conspiracy theories.

Join Dr. John Chae this Friday at 4 pm ET as we learn and discuss the ethical and moral implications of the COVID-19 vaccine and fetal cell lines as we discuss:

  • Herd immunity, public health and vaccines.
  • Viruses: what are they and how do they propagate?
  • Our immune system and vaccines.
  • Development and production of COVID-19 vaccines:
    • Use of fetal cell lines: “Most accurate information” vs incomplete information, misinformation or conspiracy theories
    • DNA vaccines: AstraZeneca
    • mRNA vaccines: Pfizer and Moderna
  • Ethical arguments for and against the use of fetal cell lines.
  • Positions of various Christian societies and organizations.
  • Going forward
