Nigerian gospel singer better known as Sinach, and Joseph Egbu, her husband, say it’s a shame the churches known for divine healing are now being avoided due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has altered the way several things have been done across the globe including the religion landscape.
The pandemic has seen the closure of several churches and Christians are now forced to worship from homes due to government’s directive prohibiting large social and religious gatherings.
Reacting to the development, Egbu, in a post which was corroborated by his wife, claimed the COVID-19 outbreak has made men of God to rely on science and relegated their faith in divine healing.
“It’s a shame that faith in God and wisdom of God have been relegated in our society. People of God rely more on science (inventions) than God (inventor),” the post read.
“Some men of God now seek counsels from the people of the world (I thought reverse was the case). They have relinquished their authorities and churches have become gathering of convenience.
“They have become sheep like their congregation, cowardly waiting for any shepherd to proffer solution. It’s a shame that Church, known for healing, is now regarded as a place to avoid. It’s a shame.”
This further stretches the list of prominent people who think divine solution is also essential in battling the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
Meanwhile, Mike Bamiloye, founder of Mount Zion Faith Ministries International, had earlier claimed the initial low spread of the coronavirus in Africa was due to fasting and prayers in the continent.
