In case you’re unaware, at Pulpit & Pen we are trying desperately to keep up with notating all the crazy claims made by charismatic prophets in relation to coronavirus. We’re losing in that struggle.
For the record, Bethel’s affiliated pastor, Shawn Bolz, declared a prophecy that God had ended the virus. Perhaps Bethel didn’t get the memo. Rodney Howard Browne promised to bind coronavirus from the United States (again, it’s growing), Jim Bakker claimed his venereal disease ointment also heals coronavirus, and Rick Wiles claimed Christians are immune altogether. Pat Robertson claimed his gut-health booklet will make you immune. A charismatic prophet from New Zealand claimed that all Christians were immune. Another prophet declared that Republican states were immune. Perry Noble says coronavirus is a Satanic scheme to help socialism. Kenneth Copeland said that touching his oily hand through the television would heal coronavirus. Lou Engle has told his followers that a three-day fast can cure coronavirus (health experts say that lowers the immune system).
And now Charisma Magazine contributor and doomsday prophet, Tom Horn, says that a potential coronavirus vaccine could be taken from the blood of the antichrist (who will be immune to coronavirus), thus inadvertently getting people take sort of a antichrist communion that would sucker them into following the Beast.
If it seems far-fetched, the woman in the video says “It’s absolutely scientifically possible.” Just for fun, we sent a friend who works in a health department that link. This was their response.
Now, charismatics are going to be afraid to take a potential vaccine. Great. Charismatics are going to get somebody killed.
