Bishop David Oyedepo, the final overseer of Dwelling Religion Worldwide, has berated the federal authorities for refusing to open church buildings amid the lethal coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Talking on Sunday, Oyedepo questioned why church buildings remained closed regardless of the gradual easing of motion and the lockdown order.
The outspoken clergyman said that Lagos and Ogun states at the moment are combating an anti-church virus.
Oyedepo revealed that about 114 members of his church testified to have been healed of coronavirus but locations of worship have remained shut, whereas markets have been opened.
“What they need us to consider is that there’s the evil of corona within the church. It’s the best lie ever instructed on the earth. The Church is God’s therapeutic clinic, not the place you collect illness,” Oyedepo mentioned.
“He healed me of Tuberculosis. Too many internationally delivered by the ability of God. Is that the place to close down? That is not coronavirus, at the least in two states, Lagos and Ogun. It’s now the anti-church virus.
“The gods of this world are behind it however there are human devices that they have interaction. Can anyone silence the church? No! I’ve by no means heard of anyone God healed available in the market. However we get therapeutic within the church.
“We’ve recorded 114 coronavirus healings. We received 10 this week. However that’s the place being declared susceptible, not the market. Zero social distancing available in the market locations. Below the identical ambiance, you’ll be able to’t go to church.
“It’s a grand want of the satan globally to silence the church. What they name coronavirus has all of a sudden turn out to be an anti-church virus, clear and clear, the market place is rocking, individuals are working over themselves.
“Nigeria’s coronavirus by no means goes to the market, it solely goes to the church.”
