Church Votes to Not Re-open Until 70% of Congregation is Vaccinated

A church in Kentucky has voted to keep their church shuttered for in-person services until at least 70 percent of the population is vaccinated from COVID-19 and its variants, with members being told to inform church leaders once they have received the shot in order to reach the proper threshold tally.

“Pastor” Linda Kurtz of First Presbyterian Church in Lexington, Kentucky, a progressive body within the thoroughly reprobate PCUSA denomination, made the announcement on Twitter, explaining:

Tonight, my church leaders decided to not resume in-person worship until 70 percent of our city has been vaccinated. Also tonight, my spouses’ church leaders are bullying him into resuming in-person worship ASAP. Our incidence rates remain sky-high. I’m worried for our safety.

Kurtz further explains that attainintg 70 percent levels of vaccinations will enable the congregation to reach herd immunity, at which is the only point they’ll feel remotely safe attending.

The church has only had online services since they closed in March, and has no intentions of opening up until at least March 28th, assuming enough members are given the shot.

Members who have been vaccinated are to report it to church staff who will be keeping a tally. Though the Church says that it will not share with other members the list of congregants, they say disclosing that information is vital if they want to gather again.

In response to Kurtz’ post, several people chimed in that their churches likewise are not reopening until enough people have been vaccinated, even as they disclosed fears that new variants they are not vaccinated from may shut them down all over again.

  1. We had an elder propose that our church not reopen until a certain time after a vaccination is available. Long story short, he resigned and is looking for another church.

    One does not have to deny that COVID is real in order to still meet together as the Bible calls us to do. There are enough precautions that can be taken to be safe together.

  2. Are you all under a spell !!!! ??????? When are you going to realize that “drugs” -” pharmakeia” are sorceries according to the Holy Scriptures and that you are and have been deceived ! Read this and repent you who have believed the lie, that the Light that lights every man which is Christ JESUS might open your eyes to see.
    ” And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.” Rev18:23.
    .The Greek word for “sorceries” in verse 23 is “pharmakeia” [far-mak-i’-ah]. According to the Thayer Greek Dictionary “pharmakeia” is “the use or administering of drugs; poisoning; and sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it.” If you put the original Greek word “pharmakeia” in place of the English word “sorceries” the end of verse 23 would say, “For by thy pharmakeia were ALL nations deceived”! “Pharmakeia” is where we get our English word “pharmacy”! Pharmacy is a well organized and professionalized system that administers poisonous drugs. WAKE UP ! REPENT ! and get out of those harlot churches before its too late, for you have learned nothing ! Seek out a man of GOD who loves the truth and knows the truth and who can teach the truth, for that Truth is Christ JESUS the Lord, and if you abide faithful in Him, you will not walk in darkness, but walk in the Light as He is in the Light ! 1Jn1:7

    1. Thank you GOD. FINALLY someone here who sees this like I see it. I lived a VERY CHALLENGING life story and when my health failed so did the church’s teachings on healing. After 18 months and almost a dozen doctors I was WORSE, much worse. So, I canceled all my medical tests/appts and began chasing GOD for answers. HE SHOWED UP and took me on quite a journey showing me the many things we do to make ourselves sick. If you’re healed by a miracle and return to the same diet, lifestyle, environment and relationships you’ll only get sick again. Most people have no clue about the corruption and pure evil lurking in the medical industry and they believe their willful ignorance protects them from GOD’s judgment. NOPE it doesn’t. Anyway, GOD INSISTED that I write a book that has now dropped several grown men to their knees in tears. “You’re right.” One woman had a 2 hour healing encounter with GOD while reading it and many more have called it “life-changing”. In this book you’ll see towards the end, the section on vaccines. You should read it and be horrified. Did you know that these drug mfg’s have zero legal liability? Did you know that the US gov’t was supposed to do independent testing on these as a condition of that legal immunity? That testing hasn’t been done in 32+ years. NOBODY IS WATCHING OVER THIS!!! Every single vax mfg has been fined heavily for one of more of the following… fraud, deception, bribery, tampering with test samples…Does this sound like someone you want to trust? PLEASE GET INFORMED AS YOU ARE MAKING A MOCKERY OUT OF CHRISTIANITY!!!! is where you’ll find reader comments on the book and more. PLEASE PEOPLE….

  3. The Bible clearly links FASTING to HEALTH.

    On another note, King Asa was cursed for turning to doctors before GOD.

    Finally, just wondering what kind of man submits to a woman “pastor”? Do we need to start testing their testosterone?

  4. Tine to leave a church w/ a woman pastor ( or even an LGBT condoning pastor) 501c3 churches are a gov. corp church anyway, home church or meet / friends in private setting. Do not run local ads, stay low key and keep group small.

  5. This makes me so sad, these people are under a spell. Please repent and turn away from this. The vaccine is evil and an abomination.
