The senior pastor of Trinity House, Ituah Ighodalo, has sent a message to some Nigerian Christian clerics who have refused to take the COVID-19 vaccine and are preaching to their congregations to follow suit.
Ighodalo admonished that what such religious leaders should understand is that God has provided a solution and remedy for the deadly pandemic, which is the vaccine, The Punch reports.
The pastor, therefore, noted that it will be foolishness on the part of anyone who preaches that taking the jab is an act of unbelief in the supreme and miraculous power of the Almighty.
“It is foolishness to keep having faith that God will protect you from an infection he has made provision for vaccines that can provide a high percentage of protection.”
PM News reports that the vibrant pastor warned his colleagues "to stop misinforming and improperly educating people on guesswork, instincts and mere suppositions.”
Ighodalo said he has taken the vaccine after getting a clear direction from God to go ahead with the jab.
Meanwhile, for endorsing the COVID-19 vaccine, a well-known pastor in Nigeria, Chris Oyakhilome, had slammed his colleagues.
He disclosed this in a sermon in which he asked his colleagues, "Where is your faith"?
