Megachurch's pastor, TD Jakes, urges people to get corona virus testing because it is "widespread" in the United States.

The pastor of Potter & # 39; s House also encourages people to wear a mask to minimize the spread of the infection.

In the message posted on Facebook by the Herbert Henderson Office of Minority Affairs, he asked people to "stay there" but also "be smart".

"They need to be tested on COVID-19. It's common. It hurts a lot of people. It kills them," said Jakes, whose mega-church is located in Dallas, Texas.

"Wear a mask. It's so much easier to wear a mask than a ventilator. Wear a mask. Social distance even to people you know and love. If they don't live with you, keep your distance."

The Potter & # 39; s House has offered online services throughout the pandemic.

In an earlier Facebook message in May, at a time when some churches were struggling to stay open, Jakes said it was "stupid" to ignore official instructions.

"When the Bible said that Jesus was tempted in the desert for 40 days and Satan said: & # 39; If you are the Son of God, throw yourself from this mountain because it is written that the angels will carry you & # 39 Jesus didn’t throw himself away from the mountain just to see if angels would catch him. It’s not belief, it’s stupidity, ”he said.

"To put yourself in a situation where you disregard common sense, just ignore it to see if God has you, please don't do that. I am here today and speak to you because I am concerned and I'm worried and I love you and I'm afraid for you. "

In the United States, nearly 4 million cases of coronavirus have been confirmed, with 144,000 deaths.
