Popular pastor, Ituah Ighodalo has come out to say that churches should be closed if it becomes necessary amid the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
Ituah Ighodalo recently revealed this when he appeared on Arise TV, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, there is nothing special about a religious house, as it is just a building where children of God gather to worship their heavenly father.
He added that Zoom services and meetings might not be as intimate as church services, but men of God have managed to reduce things to house fellowships because life must go on.
His words, “If we need to. There is nothing sacrosanct about a religious house; a religious house is a gathering of people wanting to worship God. If that gathering and that intimacy in the gathering will lead to the spread of germs or disease, God, because you want to worship Him, would not say that the physical things that you need to do should not be done.
So, if we need to shut down the churches, why not? Churches were shut down several months ago. We didn’t die, we survived. The churches learnt to go online, on Zoom. Christianity benefited from it because we now began to use more technology to offer our evangelism and our worship of God and we quite enjoyed it.
The Zoom meetings are not as intimate but we have managed to reduce things to house fellowships and life must go on.”
