The General Overseer of the LoveWorld Incorporated, aka Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has slammed the Government for dictating to the church the number of hours their service should hold due to the raging corona-virus pandemic.

Dr. Oyakhilome who berated some church leaders recently for complying with the government order banning public gatherings including religious gatherings without negotiating with the church for time to pray and consult with their congregation, said that he is greatly dismayed that some people have the audacity to tell the church how many hours to spend on services.

He wrote:
”I am appalled some people have the audacity to tell the church how many hours to spend on services.”
”How dare you”

“You cant not tell God people how long they can be in the church. If you build a building for the people, then you gonna tell them how many hours to use the building, but if you didn’t you have no right to tell God’s people how many hours to worship their God.”

He also again admonished some church leaders and criticised them for complying with the government order restricting religious gatherings without consulting and involving the church in the decision making process. He said that the leaders should have demanded for a time to pray and consult with their congregations other than straightway accepting government’s order.

He said such leaders were not true Christians and it was the reason the country was yet to “see the hand of God.”
