‘Where’s Your Faith?’ – Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Slams Church Leaders Endorsing COVID-19 Vaccine (Video)
Nigeria received 3.92 million doses of Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccines on March 2 and have since begun the vaccination of Nigerians. Many clergymen both in the Christian and Muslim faith have been encouraging their members to take the vaccine.
Oyakhilome, who has in time past made controversial statements about the COVID-19 pandemic, has come out to attack Christian leaders who endorse the vaccine.
While preaching in his church recently, Oyakhilome said;
I can’t understand how a minister of the gospel would be waiting for some vaccine to be the solution for the world. Where is your faith? What happened to you? We cannot make such recommendations, it is not our calling to make such recommendations. We cannot be used for that. As a minister of the gospel, you should not be used for that.
How can you become a minister of vaccines? What happened to you? Where is the word of God in your mouth? Do you realise that if you would believe in Christ and in the word of God the way you believe in this vaccine, there will be power in your mouth? He (God) made us healers.
What is wrong? What has happened to you? When did we start making that kind of recommendation to God’s people? For God sake, think again. How can they send us to the churches to tell them to go take the vaccine?
Listen, if I say to someone, you shall live and not die, that’s it for him. Isn’t that the Bible that you read? Where is your God of Elijah, your God of Moses? Where is your God of Peter, James and John? What is the matter with you?.
It would be recalled that Oyakhilome came under public backlash last April for saying COVID-19 was caused by the fifth-generation (5G) network. In a video that went viral, the cleric said President Muhammadu Buhari was forced to lock down Abuja and Lagos so that the 5G could be installed.
However, few days after the video went viral, Oyakhilome retracted his claims, stating that he was only opposed to the initiative because of its perceived health risks and the seeming silence of authorized regulators on its advantages and disadvantages.
