Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, who has been outspoken since the outbreak of COVID-19, has once again condemned fellow pastors refusing to open Churches.

Following the lift of the ban on Church gathering in the country, Pastor Chris tagged some pastors as fake, stating that they have never been a believer for taking extra precaution by refusing to reopen.

Notable Nigerian pastors like Tunde Bakare, Pastor Sam Adeyemi, have refused to reopen their worship centres, despite the government lifting the ban.

Reacting to such developments, Oyakhilome who is the Founder of Christ Embassy during a service said ”if you refuse to open church for fear of being infected, you were never a believer.

“This is a great concern because there were churches that were thought to be churches until recently. We find a lot of ministers who were thought to be advocates of the gospel advocating for shutting down the churches. (Because they cannot guarantee safety).

“It is pressure like this that reveals what is a church and what is not. Do they really believe in God, the same God of the patriarchs in the Bible?

“I have laid hands on some of the most infectious people on earth and had no fear of being infected. The Word of God guarantees life in Christ.

“When you get to that point where you are afraid of opening churches for fear of being infected, you have denied the faith. You never believed,” he said.

The cleric also spoke on testing for the COVID-19 virus, tagging it the biggest fraud. He said; “From different countries we have heard complaints of this fraud of a test. Those who are doing the test are behind the fraud.

“Every government needs to wake up now and question the fraud! Paid Journalists had better be sincere to themselves, their country and to God. I have done my research. You do yours! Get the right information.”
