Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is the founder and president of Christ Embassy, has stated that one can’t believe in Jesus and be afraid of touching COVID-19 patients.
COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment.
The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air, and quickly fall on floors or surfaces.
This is why many people have been advised to observe social distancing, so as to curb the spread of the virus.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome in a new audio making the round on internet slammed fellow pastors for being afraid to lay heads on Covid-19 patients, stating that it is crazy for a man of God to wear gloves before touching people who have the virus.
He made biblical reference to how Jesus Christ touched the lepers and healed them, as he further expressed disappointed at some church leaders who have advised government to seal churches and “persecute” defaulters. He said;
“If you are afraid of a virus you have no gospel.”
“We have to pray for these ministers who are afraid of this virus.”
He said that Covid-19 guidelines are means of persecuting Christians who have decided to follow Jesus Christ with all their heart.
