The senior pastor of Christ Embassy, Reverend Chris Oyakhilome has once again protested against the COVID-19 guidelines issued by the federal government for religious gatherings.
According to the clergyman while giving a live sermon on Wednesday, July 1, he said the recent challenges that churches face regarding the guidelines qualifies as persecution.
In his words, he said;
”What is happening to Christians and Churches qualifies fully as persecution because in many countries, many states and many cities, people are allowed to go to the shops, market places, crowded places for hours without wearing a mask. Nobody cares about social distancing…and yet we have those who have the audacity and the foolishness to go into churches and say they are monitoring churches because the virus only attacks people who go to church”
He also added that the regulation is just for a short period of time as the Church would not tolerate it for too long.
