Founder and president of LoveWorld Incorporated aka Christ Embassy Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has criticised fellow preachers promoting the COVID-19 vaccine.
Oyakhilome, in a sermon shared on his church’s YouTube channel, called on pastors to place their belief in the word of God which made them healers.
He 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 of 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.”
Oyakhilome lamented how pastors have now forgotten about the God they serve to the point of leading God’s people into a belief in vaccines.
“What is wrong? What has happened to you? When did we start making that kind of recommendations 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?” he asked.
Oyakhilome had in the past falsely linked the coronavirus pandemic to 5G network and the Antichrist.
Bishop David Oyedepo of Winners Chapel, on his part, believes COVID-19 is a scam that the world has been fooled into believing.
