As it has been amply demonstrated over the past week or so with people losing their tempers and insults being thrown every which way over the COVID19 vaccines.

It has become necessary that we put a STOP on all COVID19 vaccine threads until further notice. The admin team feels that the forums needs a "cooling down" period.

If you are you are concerned about anything to do with COVID19 including issues with masks, social distancing, etc. PLEASE consult your local medical professional for guidance and advice. Internet forums are not the place to get it.

We are Rapture Forums. We are Not the COVID19 forums.

We are not into fear, gloom, and doom. If you are into that sort of stuff I'm sure you can find some other prophecy sites that will be right up your alley to go post on. But this is not one of them.

Our focus is on Jesus Christ! We are not focused on AC, the FP, etc. Our eternal hope is in Jesus Christ. Not the AC, the FP, or anyone else.

I will not allow the Rapture Forums to be turned into a conspiracy theory central. If you want to perpetuate conspiracy theories that the COVID19 vaccines are going to alter your DNA, that Bill Gates and others want to kill everyone on earth, etc. PLEASE go somewhere else to do it.

We need sanity, reason, and clear thinking on the forums.

REMINDER, for the time being please do not post any more NEW COVID19 vaccine threads or posts for any reason.

We will be going through the existing ones and reviewing them.

Thank you for your attention to this issue.

Adrian wrote up this as I was writing my post and I just happened to post first. He goes into a little more detail than I do, so I am going to include his message here as well so you can see where we are coming from:


Folks, it's time to put a halt to the Covid-19 threads and posts. At least for the time being. Should this change we will announce it here.

There is a lot of misinformation floating around, and not just from the conspiracy sites. There is contradictory information coming from medical sources, too. And many governments seem to say whatever serves their interests at the moment. It seems clear that there is no 100% consensus across all medical experts. Certainly there appears to be a consensus across many experts that the vaccines in general are safe. And so they may be. Those of us who feel safer with a vaccine than without, have (or soon will have) taken it. Those who think the scattered reports of issues arising in some people who have received one of the vaccines warrants not getting a Covid shot should probably wait until the evidence can convince them. Nobody should be forced to do --or not do-- anything. Especially medical.

Because there is such division among pro-Covid vaxxers and anti-Covid vaxxers --not just in general society but among brothers and sisters in Christ-- disagreements based on personal beliefs about this vaccine have often resulted in Christians hurting --or being hurt by-- other Christians. This is wrong. We can have opinions, but they are our own and should not cause us to act in hurtful ways towards ours brothers and sisters in Christ who may hold different opinions. We are to love, comfort, and encourage one another; not cause them pain. Even if we mean well.

Therefore, for the time being at least, there will be no more member postings on the topic of the Covid vaccine. I think we can all agree that compulsory vaccinations, restrictions on citizens who refuse to be vaccinated, or the possible requirement for people to carry a "Covid passport" are all precursors to the "mark" that will one day be required of all people under the Antichrist. And they are part of the preparation for that eventuality that will occur once we, the Church, are gone. And that, actually, is all we need to know here. After all, this is Rapture Forums ... not Covid Forums. Let's stick to prophecy, the Gospel, prayer, praise and all those scriptural things that build up.

We have actually been talking a little bit about relaxing the Covid19 ban here as long as people keep the conspiracy stuff (vaccines change your DNA, Bill Gates wants to kill everyone, the vaccine is the MoB, vaccines are used to depopulate earth, vaccines to allow people to be track people because they have nano-particles in them, etc.) out of the conversations and don't argue with each other about whether it is right or wrong to get the vaccines. Everyone needs to do what they think is best for their own unique health situation in regards of Covid19 vaccines. Consult with your doctor or medical professionals and not people on the Internet about your health. Your doctor or medical professional knows your health situation the best. We are not to use the forums for providing medical advice. Get that from information from your doctor or medical provider.

If you want to talk about how Covid19 vaccines can lead to control issues, government interference, vaccine mandates, etc. then we can do that. Just please keep the nutty stuff off the forums. Thank you.

If people do not follow these directions for these topics then we will go back to not discussing it here. It has been real nice not having the arguments that we had before and people stomping off and leaving the forums. So, please, be responsible and don;t go down the rabbit holes. :)
