The Liberian Observer reported back in July that more than 100 bishops, pastors, evangelists and ministers under the Liberia Council of Churches convened in Monrovia and concluded that God inflicted Liberia with Ebola because of the sin of homosexuality.
The men of God signed a resolution stating: “God is angry with Liberia and Ebola is a plague, ” according to the Washington Times.
They concluded: “Liberians have to pray and seek God’s forgiveness over the corruption and immoral acts such as homosexuality that continue to penetrate our society. As Christians, we must repent and seek God’s forgiveness.”
The resolution called on the government of Liberia to “be locked up for three days of fast and prayer.”
The UN World Health Organization has reported that the Ebola virus took at least 4, 900 lives in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. More than half the deaths have been in Liberia, where the government declared a shortage of body bags, according to CNN.
At the same time, the WHO reported Thursday that the number of Ebola deaths in Liberia have been on the decline, even though medical experts are cautioning against too much optimism.
According to the WHO report, the numbers have been declining for about a week, but only in Liberia and not in Sierra Leone or Guinea.
Could we suggest prayers and a fast?
