Popular Nigerian clergyman, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome in a new preaching currently making the rounds on the internet, has slammed fellow pastors for being afraid to lay their hands on Covid-19 patients.
In the audiovisual clip that’s now trending on social media, the pastor is heard saying that it’s crazy for a man of God to wear gloves before touching people who have the dreaded virus.
He made biblical reference to how Jesus Christ touched the lepers and healed them. He went on to say he’s disappointed at some church leaders who have advised government to seal churches and “persecute” defaulters.
Speaking further, he also frowned at how church leaders recommended that Holy Communion be suspended in churches.
“If you are afraid of a virus you have no gospel.”
“We have to pray for these ministers who are afraid of this virus.”
Oyakhilome said Covid-19 guidelines are means of persecuting Christians who have decided to follow Jesus Christ with all their heart.
Chris Oyakhilome is the founder and president of Love World Incorporated also known as Christ Embassy, based in Lagos, Nigeria.
