Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church International, also known as Winners’ Chapel, David Oyedepo, has again attacked governments of Ogun and Lagos for insisting on having worship centres closed over the coronavirus pandemic.
In his sermon on Sunday, Oyedepo said it was ironic that people in marketplaces no longer observe coronavirus protocols but remain open while the church is being suppressed.
“No hand washing, no nothing, everyone is in the market running over each other every day of the week and there is no outbreak from the market but there is now outbreak, perceived outbreak from the church. Prophets are God’s voices to the nations. Caution!” he said.
“Now, freedom of worship is no longer a constitutional right but now determined to buy some individuals. It is a hard thing to kick against the priest. This is no longer coronavirus in Lagos and Ogun. It is now anti-church virus clean and clear.”
According to Oyedepo, 10 persons had in the past week testified to have been healed of the disease.
He said: “Can anybody silence the church? Never! I have never heard of anybody that God healed in the market but people get healed in every church day and night, real tangible healing. We have recorded 114 coronavirus healing testimonies. We got 10 this week.
“And that is the place that is vulnerable, not the market.”
