Wearing A Face Shield/Mask In Church Is Unbiblical – Pastor Chris Okotie

2 Min Read

Pastor Chris Okotie of the Household of God Church is of the opinion that wearing a face mask or face shield in church is unbiblical.

While citing various bible passages, the televangelist said wearing a mask or a face shield to church means separation from God because it is like reintroducing the veil which was torn the moment Jesus died on the cross.

Chris Okotie said: “When a man is standing before God in church wearing a shield or mask, he is denying the finished work of the cross.

“Before we offer our sacrifices and lift up holy hands before God, we must make sure that everything is decent and in order.

“We must only follow the protocols outlined in the Bible, not any directive that violates the basic tenets of our faith.”

Pastor Okotie’s statement comes few days after Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Citadel Global Community Church (CGCC) advised churches to ignore the Lagos State Government’s directive to reopen on Sunday, August 9.

Bakare, during an online sermon on Sunday, queried the decision to reopen the worship centres when the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) said that the COVID-19 pandemic would peak in Nigeria in August.

The cleric advised worshippers not to allow any religious leader or government official to lead them like sheep to the slaughter house.
