Nollywood actress, Uche Elendu has blasted Hilda Dokubo for suggesting that pastors should prove their spirituality now by healing coronavirus patients.
Hilda had written, “Can all the pastors who are convinced that they have supernatural powers to heal go to the hospitals and lay hands on those infected? So this virus can go back to where it came from and we can return to our normal lives.”
Responding to the statement, Elendu revealed that her request is cringe-worthy because Jesus Christ never went from hospital to hospital to heal people.
She added that people should refrain from mocking the scriptures and the body of Christ all in the name of the fear of coronavirus.
Reacting, Uche wrote, “With all due respect I cringe at this post. My Jesus never went from hospital to hospital, or from one home to the other with the intention to heal people so under what authority will these pastors you challenge do that?? My bible tells me that 100% of the healing Jesus performed was done by the Faith of the afflicted. James 5: 14-15 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in FAITH will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.” The bible did not ask pastors to flex muscles by going from hospital to hospital to touch infected people, let us not in the scare of this pandemic make a caricature of the scriptures and the Body of Christ. Hold on to the promises of God over your life and Family, Pray, take precautionary measures and Be safe. This will surely Pass #coronavirusisreal #stayathome #pray”
