SERBIAN TRUE ORTHODOX CHURCH
To the Clergy, Monastics, and Faithful
Concerning the Covid-19 Vaccine
“Come out of her, my people,
That ye be not partakers of her sins,
And that ye receive not of her plagues…
Current events oblige us hierarchs, in the name of a part of our fatherland’s Church which we represent, to take a stance concerning the vaccines which are being forced on all of mankind as the only salvation from the “deadly pandemic,” an infection of the respiratory tract which has been named the Corona virus/Covid-19. Our stance is based on the patristic, Orthodox perspective of current events, events that resemble an especially dangerous period of the approach of the end of the world. When making such an analysis, one should be cautious, and wary of a paranoid perception of various events, lightmindedly qualifying them as apocalyptic. On the other hand, one should not go to the other extreme of dismissing as superstition or conspiracy theories obvious apocalyptic similarities as important indicators as to what stance we should take. Such a dismissal could deceive us into going with the flow of apostasy.
