COVID-19: Social distancing won’t prevent me from laying hands on the sick – Adeboye

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, has said social distancing is not enough to make him stay from laying hands on the sick.

He spoke on Sunday at the church’s National Headquarters in the Ebute-Meta area of Lagos State.

Adeboye, who preached on the topic, Divine Lifting, however, urged members of his church and Nigerians to obey all COVID-19 protocols outlined by the government to prevent the spread of the virus.

The 78-year-old cleric, who donned a face shield, advised members of his church not to be afraid of the virus but implored them to play their role by obeying all health guidelines.

He said, “I want you to relax but don’t be careless. When I say relax, I do not say be careless. I hope you know the difference between the two. When they say wear your mask, wear your mask. When they say wash your hands, wash your hands. You know we are very particular about hygiene. Even when corona is gone, keep on washing your hands.”

A viral photo of the cleric wearing a face shield while he laid hands on a bedridden person had attracted criticisms last week but speaking on Sunday, the cleric said social distancing won’t prevent him from laying hands on the sick.

“When they talk about social distancing, do that as much as possible. Obey the government.

“But I can’t distance myself from wife and I am not going to allow social distancing prevent me from laying hands on the sick so that they can recover – that is my duty and I will do it,” Adeboye said.

Recall that Adeboye cancelled the church’s physical crossover service last Thursday and opted for the virtual experience in submission to the government and the Christian Association of Nigeria.
