‘But Christians have died too’ — Nigerians attack Adeboye sparks debate with coronavirus comment
The cleric, however, shared a video where he stated that the virus won’t come close to those “who serve God wholeheartedly”.
Adeboye’s statement has since sparked a heated debate on social media platforms especially Twitter, where users are presently registering their differing opinions.
“Perverse knowledge is the coronavirus Nigerians are suffering from. Pastor Adeboye simply balanced prayer of hope, calling you to Jesus, strengthening your faith and personal hygiene but as always y’all turn a blind eye to the latter. Carry on,” a Twitter user said.
“People abuse Buhari daily but no videos and hot takes on that. Y’all just have problem in this country. How does the video Pastor Adeboye released make sense? Aren’t there Christians who have died from this virus Christianity sometimes sickens me,” another user said.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
I want to assure you that so far you are in the secret place of the most high, no Virus can come near your dwelling. Remember being able to abide under his shadow involves you living a life of cleanliness. the basic things like washing your hands, keeping your environment clean..
People abuse Buhari daily but no videos and hot takes on that.
Y’all just have problem in this country.
How does the video Pastor Adeboye released make sense? Aren’t there Christians who have died from this virus?
Christianity sometimes sickens me. https://
William spoke all of my mind. 1/2
Elders that messed up our country. They don’t deserve any respect! The corruption this country is experiencing today was orchestrated by the so called elders. Just cuz you were born before me doesn’t mean you’ve earned respect. Foolish people also grow old.
So which part of this Pastor Adeboye’s Video is making you angry?
He said Corona Virus will not come near you and people are legit angry about that?
Do you want Corona virus to come near you?
I dont agree wit wat pastor Adeboye said but I’m nt goin 2 abuse him cos its pointless lol
I believe some Christians might die 4rm corona & dat doesn’t mean dey werent gud Christians
You guys should see this..if he dies from it, does it mean he’s been a fake pastor all dis while?
According to Pastor Adeboye the Coronavirus Pandemic is a punishment from God for those who don’t serve him wholeheartedly! Sometimes these religious leaders make God look like a very wicked man.
Pastor Adeboye said what he said…
You either take or move on…..we need to learn to respect people’s belief.
Why insult him?….Forget Pastor…
That man na Elder..if e swear for you for this African land soo….nah die you dey ooo…
Pastors’ slave. But you can equally object to other elders opinion but when the elder has pastor attached to his name we shouldn’t say nothing.
Your height of hypocrisy is taller than what you can ever imagine.
As a Christian, I find it very difficult to believe that the #coronavirus is a deliberate God’s punishment for the world.
How can a loving Father bring pain, anguish and death to His children?
As for what Pastor Adeboye said, I don’t expect less,He literally quoted the Bible.
