Founder of Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, in a new message shared on his church’s YouTube channel, has lashed out at his fellow pastors who are telling their church members to go ahead and take a jab of the COVID-19 vaccine.
According to him, pastors should channel the belief they have in the vaccine to 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 realize 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.”
The clergyman 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 recommendation to God’s people?
“For God’s 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?” he asked.
