Conservative Pastor Who Said 'I'm Not Going To Get The Coronavirus' Gets The Coronavirus

Conservative pastor and radio host E.W. Jackson has revealed that he and his wife have contracted COVID-19 after declaring in a sermon that he was impervious to the virus.

The pastor revealed his diagnosis during a Facebook Live, where Jackson said: "I want to say that I've been out for the last several weeks, probably... because I was speaking somewhere else. And last week, I was out because I was tested positive for COVID-19."

"So... but I'm back, I'm healthy, I'm sound, I'm whole, praise God. I'm feeling good."

"And my wife, of course, she got it from me... but she's doing fine too. And she's gonna be back to work tomorrow."

On his radio show back in March, Jackson downplayed the severity of the deadly pandemic, as well as asserting that God had 'protected' Donald Trump and Mike Pence from the coronavirus.

"I'm not gonna get the coronavirus," he said. "I'm not gonna give anybody the coronavirus, cause I can't get it, cause I've talked to God about it, and I've taken my vaccine, and my vaccine is Psalm 91! I am free from that mess," he shouted in the video.

In the Bible, Psalm 91 speaks about God protecting those who believe in him.

At another point in his sermon, Jackson commented on the critics who said he 'acts like Christians can't get the coronavirus.'

He said: "I never said [Christians can't get the coronavirus], because of course they can, but here's what I'm saying: You don't have to. If you know how to believe God, you don't have to. Hallelujah. And if you don't have to, then don't."
