The founder of one of worldwide leading churches, Living Faith, popularly called Winners Chapel, Pastor David Oyedepo, has slammed the rules of church total closure since Covid-19 pandemic became alarming.
Following the total restrictions to curb the spread of the virus, the closure of schools, churches, and other social places. Oyedepo, out of spiritual upset poured out that for Church to be closed totally is an upside-down of looking at things.
“For the market to open for 6hours and church not open for 2hours is an upside-down of looking at it. Which is more important, the church or market?”, he lamented.
Pastor Oyedepo made the statement recently as lockdown has been relaxed in many states in the country.
In his statements, he made references to the Bible and said that how can the church be stopped from exploding as no civilization endures without foundation in Christ.
“The church activities and growth of the church is the greatest headache of the devil, however, the gate of hell shall not prevail against it”, Oyedepo submitted.
In reactions to the statements, much broke the silence that Bishop Oyedepo is more concerned about the impact of covid-19 on churches (tithes and offerings) than its impact on the economy and he believes it is being used as an attack on the church, more so, Pastor Chris shares similar sentiments with his 5G conspiracy theory.
While on the other hand, many supported the statements as churches worldwide have been totally closed ti further notice.
