With the rollout of Covid vaccine by leading pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer and Moderna, Senior Pastor of Trinity House, Ituah Ighodalo, has said there was nothing wrong with Christians taking the Covid vaccine..
The pastor of the Lagos-based church said those saying Christians should not take the Covid vaccine were misinformed, noting that the vaccine was not a “sign of the beast”.
The cleric spoke on Monday while featuring on Arise TV’s The Morning Show monitored by Edujandon.com .
Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire, had last week said Nigeria should be taking delivery of Covid vaccine by January 2021.
Some persons have, however, expressed fears about the vaccine being tied to the 666 phenomenon mentioned in the Bible.
But speaking today, Ighodalo said the vaccine has nothing to do with the “sign of the beast”.
He said, “Let us deal with facts. Fact number one is that there is virus out there. Where it came and how it came, we are not so sure but there is a virus and the virus is medically proven to be affecting people. The second thing is what is the solution? A vaccine is not the sign of the beast.
“The vaccine itself is just taking some of the virus, culturing it and putting it into somebody’s body so that he can build up resistance to the disease. There is nothing wrong with that.
“People saying that we shouldn’t take the vaccine are a little misinformed. They are just trying to frighten people, and prey on people’s ignorance. We need a cure to this ailment. We need a prevention thereof and we must work assiduously towards it thereof.
“Yes, there is a portion of the Bible that talks about the mark of the beast -666, nobody fully understands it but the reference is to the microchips that it seems as though people will be getting – nobody can buy or sell unless they have that have it. That is technology and there is nothing you can do about it. What the Bible has done is to forewarn you about it such that you don’t get under the yoke thereof.
“I think their problem is that they are thinking that very soon, they are going to insist that people will have microchips in their hands to prove that they have been vaccinated.”
The cleric, however, urged Christians to pray together and resist any form of evil control over human beings.
He also advised Christians and Nigerians, in general, to trust in God to overcome the situation while observing all preventive guidelines by health authorities.
