Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, founder and President of Believers Love World, better known as Christ Embassy, has said that the Nigerian Government has no right to reduce the time of Sunday services.
Eye9ja reports that Pastor Chirs made this known in one of his regular live broadcasts, where he condemned the government for attempting to regulate churches and determine how long services take.
He said Christians should be allowed to serve God the way they want.
While reacting to the regulation placed on Churches, the regulation that became imperative to curb the spread of COVID-19 in Nigeria, the Nigerian Cleric said that Christians in Nigeria cannot wait for President Muhammadu Buhari or anyone else’s instruction to serve their God.
“I am appalled that some people have the audacity to tell us how many hours we can spend in church. How dare you?” He said.
“What in the world do you think you are? Your time is short. You cannot tell God’s people how long they can spend in church,” he added.
This reliable online news platform learned that Pastor Chris Oyakhilome went on to say that the President can only stop Christians from entering their worship centres only if he erected the building for them.
“But if you didn’t, you have no right to tell God’s people you’re going to spend one hour or two hours in church.
“I tell you, the number of hours you tell them they have in the church is the number of hours you have left,” he warned.
