“Wearing a face shield/mask in church means denying the finished work of the cross”, Pastor Okotie says

Revd Chris Okotie of the Household of God Church, Oregun, Lagos, has kicked against the use of face masks in the church by members, noting that service will not resume on Sunday, August 9, 2020.

According to him, putting on any type of face mask or face shield to the church means reintroducing the veil which was torn the moment Jesus Christ died on the Cross because with the tearing of the veil, there is no longer separation between God and His people and that wearing of face masks would reverse the order, which is unacceptable.

“When a man is standing before God in church wearing a shield or mask, he is denying the finished work of the cross,” he added.

Okotie stated that he decided to speak out on the issue because the face mask is now graduating into a face shield, which is a veil.

Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, last week announced that religious centres in the state can reopen for worship beginning from August 7, if they adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocols which includes wearing of face masks during service.
