Wearing a mask during services in church is unacceptable - Chris Okotie

The Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu indication that houses of worship will be allowed to conduct services only if they adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocols which includes wearing of face masks during service has being opposed.

Pastor Chris Okotie of the Household of God Church, has opposed the usage of face mask in his church during service.

In a statement released on Thursday, August 6, Okotie who’s church is based in Lagos, revealed it will not reopen for services.

The clergy said, for Christians to wear any type 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 is no longer separation between God and his people.

According to him, wearing a mask in church is unacceptable during services as it denies the finished work of the cross on the cross of Calvary.
