Is taking medicine considered sorcery? And how a believer should approach vaccines?

The answer is no. But as always, "medicine" can be abused and linked to the occult in the same way that watching the sun, moon, and stars can be used for both good and bad purposes. (See Ezekiel 47:12; Isaiah 38:21; Matthew 9:12; and many other verses.)

Medicines are a gift from YHWH for He permits our healing by them. On the other hand, even useful medicines can be abused, but that is our fault, not YHWH's."Sorcery" is evil and we are commanded to stay away from it (Leviticus 19:31; 20:6; Galatians 5:19-21; and many other verses).

Look at it this way: the blue dye [techelet] that was used in the the blue thread of the tzitzit (Numbers 15:38) came from an unclean animal, a snail. Yet the tzitzit was and is holy, and not unclean at all!

But, here’s a dilemma: if the dye for the tzitzit can come from an unclean snail, then that also has implications for vaccines that use fetal tissue, right? 

Well … yes, it does have "implications."  My example of the source of the blue dye is intended to show only that even in the world of Orthodox Judaism they understand that a chemical or compound extracted from something "unclean" is itself NOT unclean.

Yes, animal byproducts are in vaccines. But YHWH said that ALL He created was "good" (Genesis 1:10, 1:12, 1:18, 1:25); and that would certainly include compounds and byproducts found in the things He created….

Surely, Louis Pasteur had no hidden agenda in his work when he made his discoveries. In fact, Pasteur was a Catholic. His son-in-law wrote: "[He had] absolute faith in God and in Eternity, and a conviction that the power for good given to us in this world will be continued beyond it, were feelings which pervaded his whole life; the virtues of the gospel had ever been present to him."

This man used his God-given brain to advance our knowledge, and he created life-saving techniques and vaccines!

Many people may object to vaccines that are made from human tissue. This was the case with the Rubella Virus vaccine, as the original vaccine came from aborted fetus tissue, created to avoid the risk of major birth defects. Since the vaccine was developed in the lab, there was no need for further human tissue. The Rubella vaccine has prevented thousands of abortions by protecting women from infection.

Today, the Rubella vaccine is made only from a chemical reproduced in labs, and not from "fresh" fetal tissue. YHWH said, on the 6th day after creating humans "God saw everything that he had made, and indeed it was very good (Genesis 1:31). If that is true, then how can a chemical found in the human tissue which is exploited for such good, be considered "bad"?

Sure, it is repulsive to think of human fetuses being harvested for research. But if we are going to be honest, the barbarity of that thought need not exist. While the early research was forced to use actual fetuses, opportunistically, science now knows how to reproduce the necessary chemicals and compounds without using what is widely accepted today as an unethical procedure.

Here’s a question:  If we are to strongly object to vaccines, then why do we eat? We eat meat, which is the dead muscle of animals including their DNA; and we eat plants, which is nothing but the dead matter from non-breathing organisms, including all their DNA. And, let’s not forget, we breathe constantly, inhaling both bad things and good things with each breath.

As a matter of fact, we ingest millions of spores of yeast when we breathe, 365 days a year; yet, at Passover, we are expected to "rid" our homes of it! (Actually, the word is LEAVEN, not yeast, as mentioned in many Bibles.  So, IF we were to rid our homes of yeast at Passover, then we shouldn't breathe...)

If we are going to be so sure that OUR perspective on vaccines is the only correct one, then what have we become? Do we have faith in YHWH or not?
