Senior Pastor of Trinity Church, Ituah Ighodalo, says it is foolish to reject the COVID-19 vaccine.
Pastor Ighodalo urged pastors to encourage their congregation to invest their time in getting scientifically proven information from professionals on the COVID-19 vaccine rather than spread conspiracy theories and unverified information.
He said the argument for and against the vaccine is a problem of knowledge.
Ighodalo called on pastors to do their research and get knowledge instead of misinforming and improperly educating people on guesswork, instincts and mere suppositions.
He said he had already taken a jab of the vaccine as directed by God after prayer.
“It is foolishness to keep having faith that God will protect you from an infection, when he has made provision for vaccines that can provide a high percentage of protection.
“I have taken the jab. I prayed about it, and I got a clear direction from God to go and receive it, and I have explained to my people in church that God provides knowledge.
“I will like to appeal to my brother pastors to do their research, get the knowledge and stop misinforming and improperly educating people on guesswork, instincts and mere suppositions. Coronavirus is real, and you need the vaccination,” he said.
The cleric touched on the need for the government to compel churches to get the necessary knowledge and answer important questions on COVID-19 vaccine.
He said, “Some people think the COVID-19 vaccine is a deliberate effort to wipe out the human population.
“We need to address the fears and prove it is not so. Other persons think it is the sign of the Antichrist (666) and we need to prove this is not also true.
“Other people believe the vaccines have long-term effects and if you take it today, in 20 years’ time, it will affect them. We also need to address such fears and prove scientifically this is not so.”
