When a person is standing before God in church wearing a shield or mask, he's denying the finished work of the cross- Pastor Chris Okotie

Pastor Chirs Okotie of the Household of God Church, has said his church won't reopen for service on Sunday, August 9, because they can't wear a mask during service.

Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu last week announced that religious centres within the state can reopen for worship beginning from August 7. While mosques are expected to resume service on Friday, August 7, churches are to resume theirs on Sunday, August 9. The governor indicated that both houses of worship are going to be allowed to conduct services as long as they adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocols which incorporates wearing of face masks during service.


However, during a statement released today, Thursday, August 6, Okotie said his church which is predicated in Lagos, wouldn't reopen for services. consistent with him, the wearing of masks or face shields is unacceptable during worship services because it defeats the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary.

“Citing various Bible references, the clergy said, for Christians to wear any sort of mask or face shield to church, is to reintroduce the veil which was torn the moment Jesus died on the cross. With the tearing of the veil, there's not separation between God and his people.

When a person is standing before God in church wearing a shield or mask, he's denying the finished work of the cross.” he said
