Spiritual Blindness

John 9:1–41

John’s Gospel Reading is not really about physical blindness, but spiritual blindness. We are spiritually or morally blind and not until Jesus heals our blindness can we see life the way God wants us to see life. We are all in the dark as if blind until we allow our faith in God to heal our transgressions. God wants us to seek Him, seek forgiveness and see the truth. The only way we can see the truth and be true disciples of Jesus Christ is to study God’s Word and allow the Holy Spirit to work within us. When we are healed of our blindness we see the world and people through God’s eyes. We no longer judge others, we no longer think sin in one is greater than another, we love our neighbors, no matter what color, race or religion, we see animals, plants and nature as special gifts bestowed to us to enjoy, we live life in the present, we give glory to God for our blessings and even during our trials, we walk with eyes wide open and no longer in the dark. God bless each one of us!

Jesus Heals a Man Born Blind
9 As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. 2 His disciples asked him, “Rabbi,p who sinned,q this man or his parents,s that he was born blind?”3 “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.t 4 As long as it is day,u we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. 5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” 6 After saying this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes. 7 “Go,” he told him, “wash in the Pool of Siloam”x (this word means “Sent”). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing. 8 His neighbors and those who had formerly seen him begging asked, “Isn’t this the same man who used to sit and beg?”z 9 Some claimed that he was. Others said, “No, he only looks like him.” But he himself insisted, “I am the man.” 10 “How then were your eyes opened?” they asked.11 He replied, “The man they call Jesus made some mud and put it on my eyes. He told me to go to Siloam and wash. So I went and washed, and then I could see.” 12 “Where is this man?” they asked him. “I don’t know,” he said.

The Pharisees Investigate the Healing
13 They brought to the Pharisees the man who had been blind. 14 Now the day on which Jesus had made the mud and opened the man’s eyes was a Sabbath. 15 Therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. “He put mud on my eyes,” the man replied, “and I washed, and now I see.” 16 Some of the Pharisees said, “This man is not from God, for he does not keep the Sabbath.”But others asked, “How can a sinner perform such signs?”e So they were divided.17 Then they turned again to the blind man, “What have you to say about him? It was your eyes he opened.” The man replied, “He is a prophet.”18 They still did not believe that he had been blind and had received his sight until they sent for the man’s parents. 19 “Is this your son?” they asked. “Is this the one you say was born blind? How is it that now he can see?”20 “We know he is our son,” the parents answered, “and we know he was born blind. 21 But how he can see now, or who opened his eyes, we don’t know. Ask him. He is of age; he will speak for himself.” 22 His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders,i who already had decided that anyone who acknowledged that Jesus was the Messiah would be put out of the synagogue.k 23 That was why his parents said, “He is of age; ask him.”24 A second time they summoned the man who had been blind. “Give glory to God by telling the truth,”m they said. “We know this man is a sinner.”25 He replied, “Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” 26 Then they asked him, “What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?”27 He answered, “I have told you already and you did not listen. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you want to become his disciples too?”28 Then they hurled insults at him and said, “You are this fellow’s disciple! We are disciples of Moses!p 29 We know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this fellow, we don’t even know where he comes from.”30 The man answered, “Now that is remarkable! You don’t know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes. 31 We know that God does not listen to sinners. He listens to the godly person who does his will.32 Nobody has ever heard of opening the eyes of a man born blind. 33 If this man were not from God,s he could do nothing.” 34 To this they replied, “You were steeped in sin at birth; how dare you lecture us!” And they threw him out.

Spiritual Blindness
35 Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” 36 “Who is he, sir?” the man asked. “Tell me so that I may believe in him.”37 Jesus said, “You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you.”38 Then the man said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him.39 Jesus said “For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”40 Some Pharisees who were with him heard him say this and asked, “What? Are we blind too?”41 Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains.

 

Should I Vaccinate Or Not?

 

As a parent or guardian, you want to protect your child from harm. Prior to making the decision to vaccinate your child, you should know about the following:

  • how vaccines work
  • how vaccines effect your child’s immune system
  • vaccine risks and side-effects
  • vaccine ingredients
  • vaccine safety

Do Vaccines Prevent Diseases?

The purpose of vaccines is to prepare the immune system to protect the individual from a theoretical future exposure to the pathogen. The problem; however, is that this preparation of the immune system is grossly insufficient/incomplete. Vaccines are tested for “efficacy” in clinical trials by measuring an antibody response in the recipients (an antibody is a protein in the body that responds to and attacks the antigen – in other words, the pathogen). So, if vaccines are able to elicit an antibody response in laboratory, the assumption is that these vaccines are efficacious. The most important leap in logic, and flaw in this reasoning is the presumption that an antibody response equates to immunity, which is incorrect.

Unfortunately, vaccines have not been tested for effectiveness. In other words, there is no observational data actually proving that vaccines can protect you or your child from getting infected with, and spreading, the pathogens against which you are vaccinated. There is proof that vaccines can produce antibodies in your body. However, the current consensus in immunology is that immunity is a highly complex, multifaceted, individual response that requires much, much more than a mere antibody response. Evidence of this can be seen in various infectious disease outbreaks in vaccinated people, globally.

Vaccination does not mean you will be protected from the illnesses against which you are vaccinated. In fact, you will be more likely to succumb to other illnesses.

Vaccines and Your Child’s Immune System

Vaccines affect the immune system by revving it up, like pressing the gas pedal in your car. When your body naturally encounters a pathogen/germ, its engine revs up. But after you have naturally recovered from that illness, your body calms down (returns to normal/homeostasis). One of the main problems with vaccines is that they rev your immune system up perpetually, akin to flooring the gas pedal in your vehicle (and not letting up). This is dangerous. A hyper-active immune system has been shown to cause damage to many organs and organ systems internally, including brain damage. Your body does not easily calm down following vaccines, especially after numerous vaccines.

Vaccine Side Effects/Risks

Like any pharmaceutical drug, vaccines can cause side effects. But unlike all other pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines do not receive gold standard testing. As a result, side effects are much more numerous and severe than any other pharmaceutical product. Side effects can include but are not limited to the following: swelling at injection site, rash, fatigue, syncope/fainting, headache, nausea, chills, sudden infant death syndrome, fever, seizures, autism, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, brain swelling, shock, anaphylaxis, cardiac arrest, ataxia, drowsiness, insomnia, narcolepsy, myalgia, arthralgia, urticarial, edema, upper respiratory tract infection, diarrhea, paralysis, allergies, asthma, eczema, autoimmune disease, infertility, and death. Vaccines have also never been tested for potential to produce cancer, and there is evidence supporting the hypothesis that vaccines do initiate cancer.

Vaccine Ingredients

Type of Ingredient Examples Example of Damaging Effect
Preservatives Thimerosal (only in multi-dose vials of flu vaccine) Brain damage, paralysis, disruption of proper immune functioning
Adjuvants Aluminum salts Brain damage, paralysis, disruption of proper immune functioning
Residual cell culture materials Egg protein Autoimmunity
Residual inactivating ingredients Formaldehyde Inflammation near injection site
Residual antibiotics Neomycin Destruction of good bacteria in the gut

Vaccine Safety

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a passive surveillance system to receive vaccine injury reports. However, it’s voluntary, and most doctors do not know how to recognize adverse reactions, so the data in it is underreported by a factor of at least 100. If you experience a reaction after a vaccine, you or your doctor can submit a report. The US government has awarded about $4 billion to vaccine victims over the past 30 years.

Why Claims of Unvaccinated Flu Deaths Are Highly Deceptive

“A statement was made in January by the CDC chief: “85% of children who died from the flu this season were unvaccinated.”

Upon superficial glance, this claim might appear quite frightening to those who have not investigated the scientific literature on vaccines. The CDC has a propensity to omit important information, and the above claim implies that the flu deaths are attributed to a lack of vaccination.

It’s important to understand why the deaths are NOT because they avoided the flu vaccine.”  Read more here: https://vactruth.com/2018/03/04/unvaccinated-flu-deaths-are-deceptive/
