Hulk Hogan compares coronavirus to biblical ‘plagues of Egypt’
Hogan: a vaccine may not be needed
Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan is facing criticism after sharing his view on the coronavirus pandemic, describing it as punishment of God and as similar to biblical ‘plagues of Egypt’.
Hogan has said in a post on Instagram that the world may not need a vaccination for coronavirus, claiming that the outbreak is an act of God.
He compared the global health crisis, which is affecting more than 1,365,004 people worldwide as of April 7, to the “plagues of Egypt”.
The retired American professional wrestler start shared a picture of himself on the social media platform that showed him leaning against a wall on which was written: “I AM THAT I AM”. It seemed like Hogan was praying.
“Word up, can you handle the truth my brother only love HH. In three short months, just like He did with the plagues of Egypt, God has taken away everything we worship.” Hogan said.
“God said, ‘you want to worship athletes, I will shut down the stadiums’,”
“‘You want to worship musicians, I will shut down Civic Centers. You want to worship actors, I will shut down theaters. You want to worship money, I will shut down the economy and collapse the stock market. You don’t want to go to church and worship Me, I will make it where you can’t go to church.
“‘If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land’.”
He concluded by saying: “Maybe we don’t need a vaccine, Maybe we need to take this time of isolation from the distractions of the world and have a personal revival where we focus on the ONLY thing in the world that really matters. Jesus,”
This was not the first time, Hogan has made bizarre suggestions amid the pandemic. He recently became religious over the coronavirus on social media.
A few days ago, the wrestling icon shared a highlighted passage of the Bible on Instagram as he captioned it, “This is one of the most powerful gifts to our human race, it’s as powerful as it gets here on earth, thank you, God. Only love HH 2 Chronicles 7:13&14.”
While the highlighted passage read: “Whenever I hold back the rain or send locusts to eat up the crops or send an epidemic on my people if they pray to me and repent and turn away from the evil they have been doing, then I will hear them in heaven, forgive their sins, and make their land prosperous again.”
However, Hogan was not the only one who has shared Bible passages during the current health crisis. Kourtney Kardashian has also shared the same passage from the holy book, saying the coronavirus is God’s way of punishing humankind for “evil” behaviour.
