A house divided against itself by vaccinations

One of Jesus' primary messages to humanity is that of one-ness: That we can be one with him, just as he was/is one with the Father. Indeed, the doctrine of the Atonement (at-one-ment) is a core concept in Christianity.

The role of the church is to help facilitate one-ness (with God) and preach the gospel of the atonement (at-one-ment). Leaders, especially those at the local level, are charged with ensuring that we meet TOGETHER oft. [1] As Pres. Nelson stated, "The long-standing objective of the Church is to assist all members to increase their faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and in His Atonement, to assist them in making and keeping their covenants with God, and to strengthen and seal their families." [2] 

In my May 1, 2021 post "How not wearing a mask will eternally damn you (and other worthiness criteria mysteries)," I detailed a simple equation which now exists in the worldwide church:

No mask = no ordinance = no exaltation.

The ultimate aim is for members to be considered "good global citizens" [3] 

Now comes notification that at least one ward -- the Beaverton, Oregon Ward -- has developed a policy that easily informs other ward members of who has or hasn't been COVID-19 vaccinated:

Here's a comment from someone else:

Another member in the Eastern United States also wrote,

"Yes, we had our first frustrating moment today. Youth in our stake have to be vaccinated to go on our Nauvoo Youth trip. I'm so upset at the way this is being handled."

What we are witnessing here is the emergence of local policies which dictate members should get vaccinated in order to enjoy full fellowship in the church. The unvaxxed are now the 21st century versions of their leprous brothers and sisters from 2,000 years ago, and can likely expect to be treated as such.

Jesus taught, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand." [4]  We now have a situation where our houses (of worship) are effectively divided between vaxxed and unvaxxed, jabbed and unjabbed. 

Would God inspire his church's leaders to effectively divide his houses? Is that what our church does - divide the unvaxxed from the vaxxed, gay from straight, the poor (who can't afford to pay tithing) from the rich, the tea drinker from the non-tea drinker, the black from the white?

"I say unto you, be one; and if ye are not one ye are not mine." [5] 

(The next thing you know, people will be able to log in to a computer database and read up on the real-time medical status and geographic coordinates of anybody who's gotten the jab. Oh, wait - they already can! Hmmmm, I wonder how...[NOTE: The video shown on this link is unverified; all the other images on this post *are* verified])

I wish I had a way of verifying this. It isn't that I don't believe it. I do. But I would love to share this with family and I'm not sure they would believe it on the surface.

Whose opinion decides what beliefs and actions make a person a "good global citizen?"

If my reading is correct, just one person of many in the courts of king Noah thought Abinadi was a "good citizen".

Samuel,the Lamanite also failed the "good citizen" test.

So did Jesus.

Of course the church wants everyone to get the non-vaccine. Its stock portfolios count on it.

At least the church (unlike the Catholics) isn't cordoning off the unvaccinated to their own section of the chapel...yet.

The church has already lost its hold on my mind. I won't submit my body to their will in order to, what? Participate in dead ordinances? Worship their modern living idols? Consume a magical morsel of bread and a sip of water?

I vowed I wouldn't return until they dropped this mask garbage. However, if the rest of the church is going to follow this mandatory gene therapy precedent then I'll likely never return. There's simply no reason to.

I suppose my only option at this point is to look forward to enjoying my time in Hell with the rest of the critical thinkers.
