COVID-19: Pastors Yet To Open Their Churches Have Denied The Faith– Oyakhilome



Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, Founder, Christ Embassy Church

The founder of Believers Love World, popularly known as Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has described pastors who have refused to reopen their churches due to the COVID-19 pandemic as unbelievers.

According to the popular cleric, such pastors have denied the faith, and are no longer believers.

Despite the approval of the Federal and State Governments for worship centers to reopen after months of lock-down, some church leaders have decided they won’t reopen yet, for safety reasons.

Speaking to his congregation, Oyakhilome 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 pressures like this that reveal what is a church and what is not. Do they really believe in God, the same God of the patriarchs in the Bible?”

“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.
