President buhari who had earlier announced the relaxation of lockdown in Lagos,Ogun and Abuja amid Coronavirus. Despite the relaxation of the lockdown, churches, mosques and schools are however prohibited from opening to avoid the spread of the virus.

Reacting to this, Bishop Oyedepo, who spoke during the Covenant Hour of Prayer Programme on Wednesday, said if markets could be opened for six hours, there was no reason churches should not be opened for two hours.Oyedepo Oyedepo Reproves President Buhari Decision Over Closing Churches, Suspects Ulterior Motives - images 2020 05 07T064824 - Oyedepo Reproves President Buhari Decision Over Closing Churches, Suspects Ulterior Motives

Oyedepo said, “There is something wrong; for people to be allowed to be in the market for six hours and can’t be in church for two hours, it is an upside-down way of looking at things.
“I can smell a rat. The Lord spoke to me on it so strong yesterday. I can smell a rat. Behind all this, how do we stop the church from exploding? The people involved don’t know it.

“The voice of darkness is influencing people at various levels, targeting the church because the growth and expansion of the church is the greatest headache of the devil.

“But the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. The devil and all his agents shall surely pay for this.

“I don’t know what hospital that records the kind of healings that the church of God records. And now hospitals, where people die every day, are open, but the church is closed because the oppression of the devil has no medical cure.”

The COVID-19 pandemic( Novel Coronavirus) has impacted religion in various ways, including the cancellation of the worship services of various faiths, the closure of Sunday Schools, as well as the cancellation of pilgrimages surrounding observances and festivals among traditional believers.
There is no gain saying, Oyedepo needs to stop grumbling, the church needs to follow the rules of the land. It is a fact that we need food to survive (physically) and we need God to survive ( spiritually). We can definitely worship our God in our different homes, but we can produce what we would eat in our home, we need to buy to survive.
Furthermore, the President of Love World Incorporated, Chris Oyakhilome, had earlier slammed the leaders of churches who agree to the Lockdown of churches without praying nor consulting with other pastors.
Is this a revolution against the government on religion matters?
Or a way to show their grievance on monetization ( tithes and offerings)?
Or,
A way to call the lost sheep unto the Lord?
Let us pray, it is what we needed.
What’s your opinion on this?
