arcus Lamb, a popular televangelist who discouraged vaccinations has died after being hospitalized for Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports Lamb is the founder of popular Christian television network, Daystar Television Network.
His wife, Joni announced the televangelist’s death on Daystar’s program streamed to Facebook.
She said her husband had diabetes but was healthy and was hospitalized after being diagnosed with Covid-19.
She said: “He never talked about that, but he had diabetes, but he kept it in check. He was very healthy, he ate healthy, he kept his weight down, and always kept his sugar at a good level.
“But with trying to treat Covid and the pneumonia, the different protocols that are used, including many of the protocols we talked about here on Daystar, and we used those, and I used them and breezed through Covid.
“It caused his blood sugar to spike and just a decrease in his oxygen and that’s why he went to the hospital, so he could have oxygen.
“He 100% believed in everything that we’ve talked about here on Daystar and helping so many people around the world with early protocol treatments for Covid. We still stand by that, obviously”.
Joni Lamb said her husband’s “heart just gave out”.
Meanwhile, Lamb’s son, Jonathan has described his father’s Covid-19 diagnosis as a “spiritual attack from the enemy”.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that this is a spiritual attack from the enemy. As much as my parents have gone on here to kind of inform everyone about everything going on in the pandemic and some of the ways to treat Covid, there’s no doubt that the enemy is not happy about that, and he’s doing everything he can to take down my dad,” he said.
A statement from Daystar Television Network said in part, “The family asks at this time that their privacy be respected as they grieve this difficult loss, and they wish to express their deep love and gratitude for all those who prayed during Marcus’s health battle. Continue to lift them up in prayer in the days ahead”.
