Franklin Graham Says Jesus Would Advocate Vaccine: Is Not The Biblical Jesus

Sheep to the slaughter

In a March 24, 2021 post on his Facebook page, Franklin Graham, Son of the late Billy Graham, spoke in favor of Christian leaders urging church members to get the Covid-19 shot saying this is what Jesus would also advocate if he was walking the earth now.

In part Franklin said,

"The internet is full of articles, theories, data, and opinions concerning the COVID-19 vaccines—both positive and negative. There’s a lot out there for you to read. I have been asked my opinion about the vaccine by the media and others. I have even been asked if Jesus were physically walking on earth now, would He be an advocate for vaccines. My answer was that based on the parable of the Good Samaritan in the Bible, I would have to say—yes, I think Jesus Christ would advocate for people using vaccines and medicines to treat suffering and save lives. In this Scripture passage, Jesus told about a man beaten and wounded, lying on the roadside as religious leaders passed by and didn’t help. But a Samaritan, considered a social outcast of the day, becomes the hero of the story when he stops and cares for the injured man—pouring oil and wine, which were the top medicines of the day, on the man’s wounds. We also know that Jesus went from town to town healing “every disease and sickness.” He came to save life—to offer us eternal life. Did Jesus need a vaccine Himself? Of course not. He is God."

Is this true? Would the Jesus of the Bible really advocate using an untried, unknown long term effects system of man?  Would Jesus advocate an injection that may, or may not cause allergic reactions, medical problems and even death, as this shot does?  If we know the Jesus of the Bible, we must say, "No!".  Jesus is perfect, therefore his ways are perfect.

Proverbs 10:22 says,

22 The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

Now Franklin Graham appears to be a nice man, a sincere man.  Looking at things on the outside, he appears to be engaged in these things that seemingly are a help to people in the form of his Samaritan's Purse, and the medical side of trying to help in this Covid-19 thing.  He is a "celebrity pastor" and is looked upon by many to be an expert in Biblical teachings; one to believe and follow.  But being a nice man, being sincere and having a "Samaritan" medical ministry does not make one's Biblical knowledge infallible or even true.

Paul honored the Bereans who even tested his own teachings.  In Acts 17 Paul said,

10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.

11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few."

Most Christians do not appear to have this trait in them.  We just seem to listen to the popular celebrity pastors and agree with them in our laziness.  But, we are told to not only search the scriptures to see if what we are being taught is true, but were also warned to

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. ..." 1 John 4

Paul also warned that another Jesus would be preached, one contrary to the true one in the Bible.  First he said in 2 Corinthians 11:4,

"For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him."

 He even gave a stern and ominous warning about this saying in Galatians 1:8(9),

"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."

My sheep know my voice and they follow me

Jesus himself warned

"3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers...."


Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.  John 10:7-14

Searching The Scriptures

Now in order to distinguish the voice of Jesus from the falsehoods, we first have to know the voice of Jesus.  This can only come from learning the voice of Jesus by studying and searching his Word; testing the spirits.  The words of Paul and Jesus as seen above are a good foundation from where to start.

Now we see from Franklin's post that he is basing his vaccine advocating Jesus on the parable of the "good Samaritan".  Now since Franklin's family comes from a medical background family via his grandfather, and is pro pharmaceutical companies and their drugs, it is no wonder he uses this parable.

Franklin may use this parable to justify his medical ministry from a secular standpoint, but it cannot be done from a Biblical one.  The context of this parable does not have anything to do with man's medicine, nor is a a justification for it has Franklin asserts.  I am not going to go into a study of this only to say that Jesus is showing the Jews their hypocrisy in loving people compared to a gentile Samaritan that the Jews hated.  In this parable, Jesus speaks of "oil and wine".  Franklin uses this as a justification for medicine.  But in the Word of God, Jesus is the oil and wine", the true healer.

Having spent a number of years researching to see if our medical system is of God or some other spirit, I could not find anywhere in the Word of God, Old or New Testaments, where Jesus advocated any of man's wisdom or medical practices.  On the contrary, Jesus opposed and tore it down just like he did all the gods (including the gods of healing) of Egypt in the 10 plagues (Exodus 12:12)

In fact we see in the gospels that the practice of medicine was put down, not recommended.  A good example of this is seen in the gospel of Luke where the woman with the issue of blood seeks Jesus to be healed.  This is the most interesting and revealing of the accounts of this because of who many scholars claim Luke was; a medical doctor.  Sorry this is all assumption based upon Paul referring to Luke as "the beloved physician" as referring to a medical doctor.  But in Luke 8, Luke has nothing good to say about the medical field.  He says,

"43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,

44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched."  Luke 8:43-44

Mark says,

"26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse" Mark 5:26

This same scenario continues today, does it not?

Now let us also consider that Franklin noted in his Facebook post that Jesus is God and does not need a vaccine.  This is also not applicable.  First, what Jesus had, he passed on to his disciples to be used by them and us today.  What is it? His power to heal, to cast out demons, to demonstrate and show his power over the world and over man and his gods (see Luke 10:19, Luke 10:9, Matthew 10:8, John 17:esp 21-22).  But the vast majority of the church has forgotten this and chose the thieves and robbers (healing gods) that Jesus spoke about that came before him.  I am not going into detail on this because I have a lengthy and detailed study on it you need to read called "Is Our Health System of God, Or Something Else?"

Covid Shot Leading Toward Worship Of The Anti-Christ

First we need to understand that this virus was initiated by Satan, and allowed by God as a warning because of a world that has turned away from the true God into following  the insidious things of Satan in these last days.  It is moving us quickly to God's allowing this prophesied one world system. If this is so, and it is; no vaccine, or mask, or other mandates will stop it.  Revelation 6, 7 and other place concerning unstoppable pestilence states this.

If you are paying attention and know what scripture says concerning the signs of the end times, you must understand that when the anti-Christ comes with his mouthpiece, the false prophet who will be pushing these things, he makes mandates that the world cannot buy or sell unless they worship the Beast and his image, or his likeness.  In as much as we are supposed to conform to the image of Christ, this false prophet sets up a system for "us" to make an image to the Beast so as to conform to his system.  As having the mark of Christ on us as Christians, the system that shows who follows the Beast will require a "mark" on the forehead or hand.  One cannot engage in commerce unless one complies (Revelation 13 , Revelation 14:9-11)

Now we have seen over the past year that unless one wears a mask, we cannot go into stores to buy, nor can one sell unless they are wearing a mask.  So the conditioning starts.  Oh yeah, it's patriotic and for the "common good", they say.  You are an outcast, "canceled" by the culture unless you comply.  Then came the cure-all back to normal vaccine.  Get the vaccine; it's your patriotic duty in order to make this judgment go away.  BUT, you still have to wear a mask, no, two masks anyway.  Also for the "common good."

This is not just an American thought, it is being produced by the demon influenced globalist World Economic Forum which is attempting to usher in this New World Order socialist, communist, Marxist, style false utopia of the anti-Christ.  So these demonic led world medical, business, religious, and government leaders have a plan to make it happen.  You must submit to it on a global submission mandate.

The WEF has come up with what they call "The Covid Passport" or "The Common Pass".  A CNN article says in part,

"It's not just for health care purposes that you will need this health data," Paul Meyer, CEO of nonprofit The Commons Project, told CNN Business. The Commons Project created an app called Common Pass, where people can store digital records of their Covid-19 test results and, eventually, their Covid-19 vaccination record.

"Now you are going to need either your lab results or vaccination data to get on an airplane, to go to school, go to work — real life, non-health-care use cases"

I will try to have more information on this in another article

By the way, if you are not aware of it, by their own admission, all these vaccines have either in them, or were used during research, aborted fetuses.  And we want to put sacrificed children into our bodies?  Does this sound like something Jesus would advocate?  They call it an ok thing if it for the "common good" of the population.  They call it for the "common good" if a few people die but more are saved.  This is the FDA / CDC view on pharmaceuticals in general. Sick.  Herein lies another nonsensical  thing.  While against abortion, Franklin and others, such as Robert Jeffress, have no problem with these babies being used in these vaccines.  Jeffress actually called this vaccine a "present from God". What knowledge do they have?

In addition I find it interesting it says in Revelation 16:1-2

"Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out the [a]bowls of the wrath of God on the earth.”

So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a [b]foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image."

Seems that this "mark" has something in it that makes people deathly ill.

Jesus rightly said the thief comes to kill, steal and destroy.  That is what this system does.  It kills babies, destroys lives, makes one submit to a medical system and not God,  and will eventually steal our freedom and take away our freedoms as we see in the "Common Pass"; unless we submit.  Right now "Common Pass" is on a phone app and printed.  But they are working on ways to actually put this information in your body to scan it.  The ability to do this is almost here as prophecied according to scripture.

And unfortunately Franklin Graham and Robert Jeffress are leading the unwitting sheep to the slaughter and eventual submission to the religion /science of the anti-Christ.   These men need to be prayed for because their responsibility is large.

We need to learn to trust and follow God and not man.

If you are not a born again believer and follower of Jesus, then it is now time for you to take this seriously.  The time is short.  The Word tells us that in the prophetical timeline of things in the last days, the taking of the believers up to Christ (the Rapture) will be the next sudden unannounced event that will happen.  This will be followed by the Tribulation Period that we do not wish to be upon anyone.

Here is a place to start.  I obtained this from another site, but it gives a place to start

The ABCs of Salvation

Some people think a personal relationship with God is something only theologians can comprehend. Actually, God’s plan of salvation is simple enough for everyone to understand. Here are the ABCs of salvation.


Admit to God that you are a sinner. All persons need salvation. Each of us has a problem the Bible calls sin. Sin is a refusal to acknowledge God’s authority over our lives. Everyone who does not live a life of perfect obedience to the Lord is guilty of sin. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23). Since none of us is perfect, all of us are sinners (Rom. 3:10-18).The result of sin is spiritual death (Rom. 6:23). Spiritual death means eternal separation from God. By God’s perfect standard we are guilty of sin and therefore subject to the punishment for sin, which is separation from God. Admitting that you are a sinner and separated from God is the first step of repentance, which is turning from sin and self and turning toward God.


Believe in Jesus Christ as God’s Son and receive Jesus’ gift of forgiveness from sin. God loves each of us. God offers us salvation. Although we have done nothing to deserve His love and salvation, God wants to save us. In the death of Jesus on the cross, God provided salvation for all who would repent of their sins and believe in Jesus. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).


Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to others. After you have received Jesus

Christ into your life, share your decision with another person. Tell your pastor or a Christian friend about your decision. Following Christ’s example, ask for baptism by immersion in your local church as a public expression of your faith. “If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved” (Rom. 10:9-10).
