Where’s Your Faith? Pst Chris Oyakhilome Queries Christian Receiving COVID-19 Jabs

The founder and pastor of the LoveWorld Incorporated, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has called into question the faith of Nigerian Christians taking the AstraZeneca Vaccine against COVID-19.

The clergy urged Christians to trust more in the word of God rather than the vaccine, stressing that they are healers.

He chided the Nigerian Government for asking pastors to convince their members to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

Oyakhilome in a video released on Monday said, “What happened to you? Where is the word of God in your mouth? Do you realise if you believe in the word of God the way you believe in this vaccine, there will be power in your mouth? He made us healers. What’s wrong? What happened to you? When did we start making such recommendations to God’s people? For God’s sake, think again!

“How can they send to the churches, go tell them to take the vaccines. Listen, if I say to someone, you shall live but not die, that’s it to him. Isn’t that the Bible that you read? Isn’t that the scripture that you read? Where is your God of Elijah, your God of Moses, your God of Peter, James and John? What’s the matter with you?”

Recall that the Federal Government had earlier this month received the first batch of 4 million doses of AstraZeneca COVAX. President Muhammadu Buhari and his deputy, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo received the vaccine publicly to convince Nigerians to also take jabs.

However, a lot of controversies have trailed the importation and use of the AstraZeneca vaccine in Nigeria as several European countries, including Germany, Sweden, Latvia, Luxemburg, France, Italy, Spain, Cyprus have suspended the administration of the drug over fears of having adverse side effects.
