ON THE SPIRITUAL DANGERS OF THE SPUTNIK V VACCINE

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. (1 Thess. 5: 21-22)

If you have pity for others, you will not condemn anyone. (St. Anatoly of Optina)


CONTENTS

Introduction

Thesis One: “There are no spiritual problems, you can and should be vaccinated”.

Thesis Two: “There is no evidence of the presence of elements of aborted infants in the vaccine”.

Thesis Three: “Creating vaccines in a medium of cells originating from abortion has been approved by the Church".

Thesis Four: “If abortions were performed for the direct purpose of producing medicines, then this would be a grave crime, a sin. But it has nothing to do with the present case.”

Thesis Five: It is downright blasphemous, for it equates the consequences of killing a baby as a result of an abortion with the Sacrifice of Christ".

Thesis Six: “Let us take advantage of the consequences of the murdered baby’s death”.
