He recently had his say during his latest sermon in church, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the only reason why he’ll get the vaccine is for the sake of preaching the gospel globally, not for anything personal.
Pastor Adeboye added that the truth is he has never told anyone not to get the vaccine because there are lots of people living in fear and doubt.
His words, “I never said to you ‘don’t be vaccinated’, you have never heard that from me. Rather than living in fear or doubt, get vaccinated. If you believe that getting vaccinated would put your mind at rest, then go ahead.”
“If there are nations in the world that say I can not come to preach the gospel there because of vaccination, I will do anything for Jesus Christ. If vaccination is going to hinder me from doing the work that God has called me to do, if they ask me to get vaccinated 10 times, I would be vaccinated.”
