Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, the general overseer of Christ Embassy, has reacted to the guidelines rolled out by the government for the gradual reopening of churches.
In a video that has been trending online, the pastor said that one cannot say they believe in Jesus Christ and be afraid of viruses, adding that Jesus healed the sick by touching them in the Bible.
The clergyman condemned many ministers of God who have been supporting government control of religious houses.
"These people who are afraid are pretending to be representing the Christians to the government, it's a shame. I think the government leaders are laughing at them.
"If 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," he said.
He said pastors who are scared of the disease need prayers. Pastor Chris added that the reason churches are still shut down is not because of government but men of God who convinced the government not to allow them open.
He said they told the government that churches must follow "wicked guidelines" before they can reopen.
