Charismatic faith healer Andrew Wommack told GospelTruth.tv in an interview earlier this week that he had to cancel an event due to the coronavirus. But it wasn’t because he was afraid of the virus, it was because he claimed that some people in the crowd don’t have enough faith to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
“We had five government agencies contact us and strongly suggest or request that we cancel because of the coronavirus, and personally I’m not afraid of that and it’s not gonna bother me. I actually heard that there’s more people that die from just the normal flu. But, you know, we have to observe this, and even though I’m operating in faith and many of the people are, we will have some people come that, I can’t say what their faith level is, and if they bring this virus here, and people get infected and start an epidemic in the Woodland Park area and God forbid somebody died, they would blame me, so really, I didn’t see much of an option.”
Take a look at his remarks below:
