Matthew Ashimolowo, Senior Pastor of Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC), has slammed Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s teaching about the alleged dangers and conspiracies behind 5G.
Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy had, also in an online sermon, said the vaccine purportedly being developed to tackle coronavirus is actually a chip, requiring 5G to function, which will have access to humans’ information.
He described it as a digital identity or computerized identity. According to him, the number would replace every documents of identification including passports. He added that countries had enforced lockdowns not to tackle coronavirus but to secretly lay 5G cables around the world.
However, in an online church sermon, Ashimolowo said Oyakhilome was misleading the body of Christ through his teachings on the topic.
The 67-year-old cleric said 5G cannot be responsible for coronavirus deaths, saying people in his village, where there is no 5G, had died of the virus.
He added that talks of conspiracy theories and the coming of an antichrist with the 5G and coronavirus are mere lies and theories to bring fear to the church.
“I’m not a scientist, I’m a pastor. But all these 5G theory, it’s not biblical, it’s not practical. There is a virus out there killing people, stay locked down. Don’t think it is some 5G that is killing. How come it got to my village where there is no 5G? A sickness is out there killing people and I’m very disappointed at pastors who have hastily shown graphs to show that there is a conspiracy theory to take over the world and put some chip in peoples’ bodies.
“We know the antichrist is going to play all those pranks and do all those things. This is not it! This is s pandemic! Jesus spoke about this in Mathew 24:8. This is a disease and doesn’t make any sense…carry the Dettol in your bathroom and you’ll find coronavirus written on it. There has been coronavirus before now it is just that this particular strand or strain, whatever they say in science, is mutated to become what we have today that we have no cure for and that is what we are looking for cure for.
“America will not destroy its economy to the tune of almost $20 trillion in order to put a chip in your body. And Britain will not destroy its economy to the tune of 2-3 trillion just to put a chip in your body.
“I’m ashamed and embarrassed by the pastors who are ill-informed, partly-informed, take videos patch it together and mislead the body of Christ. It has to stop.
“God will expose the antichrist when that time comes. But let’s not put people in fear. This thing is a disease killing people and we as believers will come out and testify,” he said.
Ashimolowo added that lockdown is biblical, urging his listeners to abide by it. He urged them to shun listening to ‘foolish theory’ but rather use the period to evangelise to people and populate the kingdom of God.
