Earlier this month, Christian preacher Andrew Wommack said God would cure COVID-19 by turning off the virus receptors in our body.
That didn’t work. The disease is still spreading and the death toll is rising. It’s almost like God can’t manipulate our genes. Who knew.
But Wommack has a response to that!
If you catch the virus, it’s only because you’re not really a devout Christian. Wait, you say, what about devout Christians who are getting sick?
They’re not real Christians, he suggested in a livestream on Tuesday night.
… many Christians — I’m talking specifically here to Christians who believe that God can heal — many Christians believe God can heal, but they they wait until they’re infected, until they’re sick, and then they start seeking for healing. And that’s better than not seeking for healing at all, but I think there’s something even better than that, and that is walking in divine health, to where, you know — this is kind of a, I guess, a Star Trek or science fiction kind of way of saying it — but it’s like you have a force field around you and no sickness can penetrate that and get to you.…
… What about the people who are Christians and they love God and yet they’re sick? Even Christian leaders and stuff? And I said, “Well, I’m not condemning anybody, but I can guarantee you God has provided healing. And if we get sick, it’s not God who failed, it’s me that failed.”
God gives grace to the humble and if you will humble yourself and say, “God, You’re faithful, Your word is true, and if it’s not working in my life, it’s not You that’s a problem, it’s me that somehow or another hasn’t learned how to receive.”
… It’s one thing to pray and believe God for a healing when you’re sick, but it’s even better to believe God not to get sick. To walk in divine health.
This may come as a surprise to Christian preachers who share Wommack’s outlook on life, including John Kilpatrick, a strong believer in supernatural acts of God, whose wife is in the hospital for the disease.
According to Wommack, she’s just not religious enough. Those who are apparently never get sick.
