Bishop Oyedepo refuses to take COVID-19 vaccine, gives reason
The founder of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo has made it clear that he will not take the COVID-19 vaccine.
Bishop Oyedepo, who spoke during the church’s Covenant Hour of Prayer programme, said he is not a guinea pig, hence would not take the vaccine.
He accused the world of being confused over COVID-19 and insisted that the church has the answer.
Speaking further, he said: “I have never seen a generation where you force people to take vaccines. It is inhuman; it is immoral sir. I’m not a lawyer but I don’t think it is legal. You can’t come to my house and want to give me injections.
“On what? Did I invite you? They are confused. But the church has the answer. Did you see any outbreak of virus here? How will it enter the gate? Will it come through the air? How?
“One woman just got down after that injection in Kaduna. What kind of life? Are human beings now turned to guinea pigs? The world is confused but the church is triumphing.
“So, the triumph of the church will humble the pride of the world. They don’t know what to do, sir. In the last days, the church will be reigning in power and glory. That is God’s agenda.
“No apologies. There is a big, big bird in our land, saying, ‘don’t take it, they are deceivers’. Let me see someone who will come and inject me.
“Are you going to tie my hands? How? Did I invite you? I know you are quiet, you will hear more of it. My job is to expose the devil and tell his agents, ‘get off, we are not guinea pigs.”
There has been a lot of conspiracy theory concerning COVID-19 and some of the pastors have been indicted for promoting such things that could affect the people negatively.
Recall that the government of United Kingdom fined Loveworld Channel, founded by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, £125,000 for unsubstantiated conspiracy theories about COVID-19.
