Socialite Efia Odo believes pastors and preachers, in general, do not have any supernatural power as people perceive to heal the sick and restore their health.
According to her, these pastors are just as natural mortal human beings like any other person thus they must not be seen as doctors who are tasked to heal people of their ailments.
Efia Odo in a Twitter post bemoaned the quantum of trust some people have reposed in pastors with the baseless belief that they have the power of God to save the sick from dying.
Her comment comes on the back of a woman she claims died in her neighbourhood due to negligence and her decision to entrust her health into the hands of a pastor.
“If you or someone in your family falls sick, DO NOT TAKE THEM TO A PASTOR BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE THE CAPACITY TO “HEAL”. Pastors can not heal because they are humans with no super natural powers. A woman in my hood just died due to negligence”
However, comments she has received as far as this view is concerned do not seem to entirely agree with her point of view. Many still believe God has the power to heal the sick and has deposited that power in pastors.
