Nigerian broadcaster and radio talk show host, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, has shaken his head and concluded the recent testimony shared by a man who came in contact with the Italian man who tested positive for coronavirus in Nigeria can only be heard and condoned in Africa.
WuzupNigeria reports that a video of a Salvation Ministries member, who testified about testing negative for coronavirus after coming in contact with the Italian man, had gone viral recently.
The testifier claimed he and others tested negative for coronavirus after the General Overseer of the Church, Pastor David Ibiyeomie, prayed for them and also made him take Holy Communion.
Daddy Freeze, in his reaction, stated that Africans believe that religion which is a ”more lethal virus than Coronavirus,” can be used to destroy the latter.
The media personality averred that saying religion can destroy coronavirus, is the equivalent of saying contracting HIV will cure syphilis. He added that Christianity, as practised in Nigeria, is a full-fledged religion that bears no semblance to what Christ taught.
Only in Africa can people believe that religion, a more potent and lethal virus than Corona, can be used to destroy Corona virus.
Saying religion can destroy Corona virus is the equivalent of saying contracting HIV will cure syphilis.
Which virus is worse, religion or Covid19? Religion and poverty go hand in hand. According to statistics, the more religious a nation; the poorer that nation.
Hunger, resulting from poverty kills more people daily than Covid19 has globally. I’m amazed that anyone can make religion a hero in this equation.
And don’t even start with the ‘Christianity is not a religion’ BS. In my opinion, as guided by the scriptures, the Christianity practiced in most parts of Nigeria is a full fledged religion that bears no semblance to what Christ taught! ~FRZ
