David Oyedepo, the Bishop of the Living Faith Church popularly known as Winners’ Chapel, says the devil is using the COVID19 pandemic to attack the church.
Oyedepo said this while delivering his new year’s sermon in his church in Ota Ofun State, as he states there’s nothing in the novel Coronavirus.
Bishop Oyedepo condemned the protocols put in place to contain the spread of COVID19 while preaching on New Year’s Eve. He said;
“When the church goes against a man, his destiny is finished. When the church goes against a system, that system will crash.
Men and brethren, there is nothing in Covid-19. One of the governors was making some statements recently and said, ‘We have only had five cases since the noise began. So, where is Covid-19?
One governor was also quoted as saying, ‘I saw people at National Identification Card area, no distancing, no nothing and how much more the church of God where there is order’.
There is no Covid-19 in National Population Card Centre. There is no social distancing in the market. There is nowhere to wash hands or wash nose and even the officials who are in charge are also buying things there.
What I think they don’t know is that the church has changed level. When the church launches an attack against anyone or system, that system crashes. Thank God we have prevailed.”
Oyedepo said this in amidst the second wave of the virus which has led to the closure of religious centres to curb the rising number of Covid infections recorded daily in Nigeria.
