Pastors Who are Yet to Reopen Churches are Fake- Oyakhilome
Dr. Chris Oyakhilome who is the head pastor of Christ Embassy has hit out on some clerics who have refused to reopen churches for fear of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pastors TB Joshua, Tunde Bakare and Samuel Adeyemi are some of the clerics who still feel it is unsafe to reopen churches.

Reacting to the decision of these men of God, Dr. Oyakhilome said: “This is a great concern because there were churches that were thought to be churches until recently,” Oyakhilome said while addressing his followers.
“We find a lot of ministers who were thought to be advocates of the gospel advocating for shutting down the churches. It is pressure like this that reveals what is a church and what is not. Do they really believe in God, the same God of the patriarchs in the Bible?”
TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations.
“I have laid hands on some of the most infectious people on earth and had no fear of being infected. The word of God guarantees life in Christ. 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.”
Pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, Samuel Adeyemi.
“You could be a preacher, but your fear and unbelief have put you in bondage. If Jesus is real and you have Him inside you, shouldn’t you be a healer of diseases? Should you be afraid?.”
Churches and other places of worship have been under lock and key since March due to the pandemic. However, president Muhammadu Buhari had recently lifted the ban.
