Before leaving for AFrica this last time my doctor prescribed an oral vaccine for me to take in advance to avoid a disease.
A vaccine gives you enough of a diseaase in a small dose to build up your immunities, but not enough to catch the full-fledged disease. So, what if the majority of people in American churches have been given a vaccine against Christianity.
