COVID-19: Cleric calls on Christians to be ready for end time
The Anglican Bishop of the Diocese of Calabar and Archbishop of the Niger Delta Province, Bishop Tunde Adeleye, has called on Christians to be prepared for the end time, noting that the COVID-19 is a sign that the world will end soon.
Bishop Adeleye who disclosed this on Sunday, however, expressed sadness that the coronavirus broke out around Easter, when the death and resurrection of Christ is observed.
“As Christians, we should get ourselves ready because the circumstances faced today indicate that the end is near. We should get ready, for the end of the world is in sight.
“We are concerned and worried because the case is probably worse in the continent. In Africa, we are not used to distancing and we fall on ourselves and hold ourselves while greeting. It will take a long time to follow these things.
“All my life, I have never seen a situation like this. It is threatening, frightening and restless. We are fervently praying that this time should pass over so that our people can go back to live their normal lives,” the Bishop said.
