Founder and Leader of Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has declared that true Christians who believe in Jesus Christ are not afraid of viruses.
according to him, you can not call yourself a Christian and be afraid of getting close or touching people suffering from Coronavirus. he added that Jesus touched people who were with leprosy and all sorts of diseases and as followers of him, we should be able to do the same.
“You cannot believe in Jesus Christ and be afraid of viruses. Jesus touched the lepers… he touched the lepers and healed them because the Bible is clear. These people who are afraid of pretending to represent Christians to the Government it’s a shame. I think the Government leaders are laughing at them because you are a Christian and you say you’re a minister of the Gospel, what Gospel? You have no Gospel. If you’re afraid of the virus, you have no Gospel. Your Gospel has ended.” said Pastor Chris
“The moment you began to give such guidelines to people in the Church, you repudiated your faith in Christ. It’s as simple as that. Once you started telling the churches that they should listen to Science and telling them to listen to these kinds of things. The moment you started that you backslid. So I tell you many of these ministers need prayers. We have to pray for many Pastors and leaders who are scared of the disease.“
