Divine legislation

The Bible commands Christians to vaccinate:

Romans 13:1&2 — “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.

2. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves” (NIV).

According to the Bible, the governing authorities, in this instance Gov. Jerry Brown, have been established by God, and Gov. Brown has signed into law — to which everyone is subject — the requirements for vaccination. Apparently, God decided a law was the only way to ensure that his children are protected.

Make that appointment with your pediatrician to avoid bringing judgment upon yourself.
