Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy Church has said that the COVID-19 guidelines given to churches qualifies fully as persecution of Christians.
Oyakhilome stated this during a live sermon delivered on July 1, 2020.
The clergyman stated that people are allowed to flout the guidelines in other places while churches are the only places monitored.
He said, “What is happening to Christians and Churches qualifies fully as persecution because in many countries, many states and many cities, people are allowed to go to the shops, market places, crowded places for hours without wearing a mask. Nobody cares about social distancing…and yet we have those who have the audacity and the foolishness to go into churches and say they are monitoring churches because the virus only attacks people who go to church”.
