Televangelist Who Said Jesus Protects Christians From COVID Has 22 Cases Linked To Illegal Bible Conference

Colorado Springs’ ABC News affiliate reports:

Woodland Park-based Andrew Wommack Ministries held a multi-day conference that included over 1,000 attendees from July 30th through July 3rd. Now the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has traced a COVID-19 outbreak to the event, with seven staff members and fifteen attendees testing positive. During the conference, a cease and desist letter from the Colorado Attorney Generals Office was sent to the local ministry for violating state health orders.

The letter said the conference was in violation of state law and Teller county variance of having well above the 175 person limit at an indoor event. The letter was sent on July 2. The next day Liberty Counsel on behalf Wommack Ministries sent a response letter to state officials saying they followed all the guidelines but acknowledged there were more people than what was allowed.

In April, Wommack appeared on JMG for his declaration that Jesus would turn off the COVID virus “receptors” for Christians. He later claimed that any Christians who do get COVID aren’t true believers in the first place. As the Friendly Atheist notes, Wommack has twice claimed that he has raised infants from the dead. The Liberty Counsel has issued at least seven money begs for their defense of Wommack since early July.
