Chris Oyakhilome also known as Pastor Chris the founder and president of LoveWorld Incorporated, also known as Christ Embassy has allegedly slammed the Nigeria government for attempting to reduce the time spent in Sunday services.
According to the Clergyman, the government has no right to regulate churches and determine how long services will take.
Oyakhilome who made this disclosure while speaking in a church live broadcast, said Christians should be allowed to serve God the way they want with government regulations and restrictions.
He added that the number of hours they were imposing on churches was what they had left in the world.
In his words ” We can serve God as he wants us to, not as somebody says we should.
“I am appalled that some people have the audacity to tell us how many hours we can spend in church. How dare you?
“What in the world do you think you are? Your time is short. You cannot tell God’s people how long they can spend in church. If you built the building for them and you are saying you are not going to let them enter the building, maybe because you built it.
“But if you didn’t, you have no right to tell God’s people you’re going to spend one hour or two hours in church. I tell you, the number of hours you tell them they have in the church is the number of hours you have left.”
