Re: Reasons to Believe Biochemist on Covid-19 Vaccines' Safety

Stu, Thanks for posting that! I’m troubled, but not surprised that I’ve never heard of ADE. If our government and vaccine makers were being open and honest, we should’ve heard about this. Here’s another article that may be on more Layman terms. https://blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline/archives/2020/12/...

Re: Once Saved, Always Saved - Not According to This Lady Who Went to Hell

I think it makes more sense to say, if truly saved always saved, and only God knows who is truly saved from the foundation of the world. However there are also many examples of Christians apostatizing. There is the free will aspect, where a person can kill themselves if they wish. When I say kill t...

Re: Reasons to Believe Biochemist on Covid-19 Vaccines' Safety

Rick, all I can say is, you better hope and pray that you are wrong, and that these vaccines are a important step into greatly diminishing this. Wrong? I haven’t made any claims! I said that there’s no long term safety data, so I don’t know if the vaccine is going to be safe. Million of Christians ...

Re: Reasons to Believe Biochemist on Covid-19 Vaccines' Safety

Does it shock you that people over 80 with serious conditions might be pushed over the edge with a vaccine? Why would it shock me? I’m not the one claiming vaccines are safe. Just about ANY serious virus or flu could do the same thing to such people. And this is not happening widespread. Not widesp...

I guess not. The same post was posted by at least two members. Both of which never came back to engage in conversation.

Seems like a typical hit and run post.
