Skip to comments.Too many religious institutions failed the COVID test
Posted on 11/25/2021 2:25:13 AM PST by lowbuck
Maybe as a vaguely religious Jew, I’ve got the wrong end of the stick when I look at Christianity, but I’ve long understood Christianity to be a faith that gives comfort and relief to the afflicted. SNIP. . .
The Archdiocese of Berlin will effectively segregate vaccinated and unvaccinated faithful during Advent and Christmastime.
The archdiocese issued the harsh restrictions in a communiqué published Friday on its official website, announcing that from November 27 onward, the so-called 2G rule will apply to most Masses and church services of the diocese throughout Advent and Christmastime.
The 2G rule allows only people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or who have recently recovered from the disease to attend all church services. The faithful will have to show proof of vaccination or immunization upon entry.

Of course, they have the government collecting their 'church tax' so they know whom they serve and it ain't the people.
I thought committing suicide was antithetical to Christian belief
This bogus virus has EXPOSED the church and it’s pastors. It has shown me the the majority of pastors are MORE CONCERNED about their jobs as a Pastor, then preaching the Word of God...........IT IS QUITE OBVIOUS!
Man says you will forsake assembling together
The Word of God says you will NOT forsake assembling together (Hebrews 10:25)
Man say we are to fear this virus and wear masks
The Word of God says I have not given you a Spirit of Fear (2 Tim 1:7)
And greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4)
Man says this virus can kill you
The Word of God says “No weapon formed against you shall prosper” (Isa 54:17)
Man says we are to social distance
The Word of God says “we are to lay hands on the sick and they shall recover” (Mark 16:18)
14¶“And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceansfn write, ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16“So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot,fn I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17“Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18“I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. 22¶“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’ ”
Notice that christ is outside the church and knocking on the door and that his promise is not to the church but to the individual that "overcomes".
The 2G rule allows only people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or who have recently recovered from the disease to attend all church services“
Utterly un Christian. Christ-less. If anyone thinks Christ got a little angry with the money changers…
#4: no more timely words, and DIRECTLY from the mouth of Jesus to John. Each person is working out his own salvation based on Jesus. First and foremost, each person must take literally what Jesus says.
Our church has no silly rules or instructions. If people wish to come they come, but they made sure to always broadcast the services live. If they wish to wear a mask you can but you don’t have to. Most of us do not. A few do. But everybody’s choice is respected. We are not there to be divided but to worship God.
I left my much-loved church I’d attended in CA for a quarter century (and went on a trip to Israel with in 2019) in summer 2020. Not only did they refuse to even reopen (very recently they finally did, but still with masking), but they also abruptly went woke—became BLM supporters and anti Jan 6th ralliers.
I joined a new church that re-opened early on in the pandemic, doesn’t require masking or vaxxing, and is not woke.
Life doesn’t stay the same. . .
