Covid Exemption Forms

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
 
As Christians, we at Central Baptist Church believe that we are not our own. We are bought with a price. Our spirit and our bodies belong to Christ. Our bodies are ours to steward for His honor and glory. Ultimately, we will all answer to God at the final judgment for our stewardship of His resources. As such, each individual must determine for themselves what to eat, what to drink, and what kind of care their bodies need. This includes preventative health care, like vaccinations.
 
A litany of factors go into personal decision making with regard to getting a vaccination, including but not limited to age, risk tolerance, health status, how the vaccine was formulated, vaccine efficacy, side effects, long term data, natural antibodies, vaccine allergies, previous vaccine injuries or adverse events, pre-existing conditions, co-morbidities, conscience towards God, etc.  The government demanding a one-size-fits all approach seeks to take the place of individual reasoning and stewardship, and usurps God’s role over our lives. Government is not God, and doesn’t deserve your worship.
 
Some in our own congregation have chosen to get the vaccine, determining that it was right for them as stewards of their bodies. Others have come to opposite conclusions. Only busybodies meddle in other people’s personal decisions such as this. Who are you to judge another man’s servant? And who is the gov’t to insert itself between God and man? For these, and other reasons, we were compelled to create and make available these covid immunization exemption forms so that Christians may remain faithful to God. 
 
If you are a born-again Christian, and you share the convictions as expressed on the form, we would invite you to use the form, unaltered, as you see fit. No one should have to choose between the jab and keeping their job. No one should have to choose between allegiance to government over allegiance to God. If you are not born again, but would like more information about how to be saved and have your sins forgiven, click here. Your most pressing need is the disease called sin, and the only cure is the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
 
If you are not saved, but share some of the same convictions as expressed here and on the form, there is another generic covid letter document that you may download and alter to your liking. You can use elements of either form to create something unique that fits your convictions. Just please don’t use our church’s or pastor’s information for something you create. Likewise, if you are another church or pastor who shares these convictions, feel free to copy and paste elements that work for you and affix your church’s logo. Let’s minister to our countrymen, and make known the supremacy of Christ in our lives. If we can be of any assistance to you, please reach out to us here. Blessings!
