The Pastor and general overseer of the Royal Family Life Ministry Incorporated in District # 15, Montserrado County, the Rev. Dr. David G.W. Badio, is calling on Liberians to build their faith in God in the face of the Ebola’s threat facing the nation.
“We as citizens, don’t believe in God and for that reason things that don’t have the power to kill, or harm us will always do because of the lack of faith in Christ [Jesus], who made us all”, said Rev. Badio
According to him, some Liberians take the fear of the Ebola virus to be a joke, but warned that the disease is very dangerous and needs quick intervention of religious leaders through prayers to seek God’s attention.
The Clergyman said since there is no cure for the virus and the government was putting in place some measures to protect people from coming in contact with the deadly virus, “It is our full responsibility to seek the face of God in order for him to deliver us from this disease.” Pastor Badio stressed the need for Christians to fight the Ebola disease, saying “The help we need to fight this virus must come from God.”
He made the call at the Church’s edifice in Logan Town on Bushrod Island at a worship service when he preached on the theme, “What God can still do” with text II Chronicles Chapter 13.
He said those who call themselves Christian, but doesn’t have God in their lives are like kids going to school with making any achievements, noting that people are in leadership positions and do not know that they are on serious assignment for God.
“You have to get closer to God to perform your leadership ability, because it is not just being a pastor, but what you can contribute spiritually to help solve problems confronting the nation”, he added.
Pastor Badio noted that Christians make serious mistakes that sometimes go beyond their expectations because of things they engaged themselves into, saying the battle is not about who the best soldiers are but it also requires experiences of those that have fought many battles.
