Pastor Adeboye Gives Reason He would take COVID-19 Vaccine


The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has stated that the reason he would take the COVID-19 vaccine is for the purpose of the gospel. He made this statement last Friday during the monthly Holy Ghost Service held at the Redemption Camp.

The 79-year-old cleric spoke about God's mercies and how it has sustained many people. He also advised his congregation that they can take the COVID-19 vaccine if they desire to. However, he said that he would only take the vaccine if the nations he wants to preach in makes it mandatory.

In his words: “I have never said to you, ‘Don’t be vaccinated.’ You’ve never heard that from me. Rather than live in fear or doubt, get vaccinated. If you believe that getting vaccinated will put your mind at rest, then go ahead.

“Daddy, are you saying that you too could be vaccinated? If there are nations in the world that say that I cannot come to preach the gospel there because of vaccination, I will do anything for Jesus Christ.

“If vaccination or no vaccination is going to hinder me from doing the work God has called me to do, even if they ask me to be vaccinated 100 times, I will be vaccinated. So, don’t ever say that you heard from me that I said that you should not be vaccinated.”
Besides, Adeboye spoke about the decision of some governors to make the vaccination compulsory before individuals can attend church gatherings. He said that the jabs for the vaccine are not adequate for the population in the country. Hence, the decision of the governors is not possible.

Some preachers have given different views about the vaccine. Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church worldwide has stated that he won't take the vaccine. He feels the anointing oil is enough to protect him from sicknesses and diseases. More so, he said that he is not a guinea pig.

In order to protect oneself from the deadly virus, health practitioners have advised people to wash their hands regularly, use a face mask, and maintain social distancing.
