The general Oveerseer of Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has asserted that church leaders are answerable for the decisions put on churches.

Oyakhilome emphasized that some leaders have stood that government should make sure that churches to be shutdown due to the pandemic COVID-19 in the country.

The founder of Christ Embassy reveal this while reacting to the laid down issued by government for the state steady reopening of the worship centers.

While discussing to his members, Oyakhilome also said pastors who fear corona virus don’t have faith in God.

Oyakhilome statement read in parts: “You can’t believe in Jesus Christ and be afraid of virus. Jesus touched people with leprosy and healed them.

“But these people who are afraid are pretending to be representing the Christians. It’s a shame. I think the leaders are laughing at them.

“If you are a Christian and minister of the gospel and you are afraid of the virus, you have no gospel. Your gospel has ended. The moment you start giving such guidelines to people in the church, you’ve repudiated your faith in Christ.

“We have to pray for our leaders and pastors who are scared of the virus.

“You may not know this but the reason many churches are still shut down is not just government but church leaders who insisted that government should not let the churches open, except the churches follow these wicked guidelines.

“Some of those guidelines like wearing of gloves before laying hands on the sick, suspending holy communion, holy communion that Jesus Christ told us to take, now we are told to suspend them because of a pandemic, this is crazy.”

President Muhammadu Buhari suspended religious gathering in the country, following the COVID-19 outburst some months ago
