Pastor Chris claims any pastor that supports church closure due to COVID-19 is fake
Leader and founder of Christ Embassy Church, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has set the record straight, saying any pastor who’s in support of church closure is fake.
Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, churches and social other social meetings have been suspended as part of measures to curb the deadly virus.
During a recent church service, the livid pastor said clergymen should have convinced the government when a meeting was held to decide if churches should be closed.
He went ahead to accuse the pastors of allowing the closure of churches in order to receive compensation from the government.
He posited:: “In different cities, countries, states, before the government went ahead with the lockdown, they held meetings with pastors, leaders of churches. Why did the pastors and leaders not say give us a few days to go and pray? Because they were not prayerful before.
Hearing such a thing as Ministers of God and you are called for such a meeting, you couldn’t say give us a few days and you would call the Ministers and say this is what we just heard from the government authorities and we need to pray. We have asked them to give us three days. Then you would have seen the hand of God.
But you weren’t thinking about the father’s house. Do you know what it is for you to shut down the congregations of the lord? Do you know what that means? It never meant anything to you, that is why. And there were pastors and Ministers that were sending strong warnings to others not to venture entering the church because of the virus. This is because Christ has never truly been your lord. You have been the master of your life. You have never truly known him”.
