This Florida Megachurch pastor is very popular in the Christian church community. He has been very vocal about his support of Trump. Trump as visited his church during his presidential term, yet this pastor is not a supporter of these new vaccines that are on the way. He warns they are a part of a plan to prepare the, “structure for the antichrist”.
Guillermo Maldonado, a Trump-supporting pastor and a self-declared apostle, also said that the coronavirus vaccine will “alter your DNA”.
“People, I want you to look at me that is exactly what is happening with Covid-19. They’re preparing the structure for the Antichrist. How? The vaccine. They’re gonna demand for you to have the vaccine in your passport, otherwise, you will not be able to travel. Because they are preparing the way.”
“The vaccines, they are made to alter your DNA. They are made to track you down. Do not [take] the vaccine. Believe in the blood of Jesus. Believe in divine immunity.”
This is not the first time that Mr Maldonado has asked followers to not pay heed to coronavirus related official guidelines. In March, he laughed pastors who skipped Sunday services, saying that they were caving into fear of the pandemic while suggesting that those who came to services were true and faithful believers.
“I just want to tell you, I’m so proud of you, that you don’t let the devil and fear cripple you,” Mr Maldonado told congregants gathered at King Jesus International Ministry. “Do you believe God would bring his people to his house to be contagious with the virus? Of course not… in the presence of God, no virus can stand.”
Mr Maldonado’s sermons carry weight because he is a televangelist and the lead pastor of a 7,000-seat megachurch.
