Call for Opening of Churches: Oyedepo Under Fire
The Presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide alias Winners’ Chapel International, David Oyedepo, has come under fire for kicking against the continuous closure of churches over the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alleging ulterior motives, the senior pastor lamented why markets were allowed to open and churches remained closed.

Oyedepo during the Covenant Hour of Prayer Programme, argued that if markets could be opened for six hours, there was no reason churches should not be opened for two hours.
He also alleged that there is a gang-up against the growth of the church in the country.

If Pastor Bishop Oyedepo is richer than the people he serves. You should wonder if he’s here to help us or are we here to help him?

Just like Oyahkilome, Bishop Oyedepo is just pained that his scam business, called church, is under locks and keys.
Hence, the talk about imaginary God that spoke to him and gave him shrew rats to smell ?? pic.twitter.com/my6KUDPxiM

BISHOP OYEDEPO IS LIVING PROOF THAT EDUCATED ILLITERATE STILL EXIST AMONG US
HOW CAN YOU COMPARE CHURCH TO MARKETS
WHO DOES THAT?
HAVE YOU HEARD SOMEONE DIES FOR NOT GOING TO CHURCH OR MOSQUE?
ISN’T IT WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE THAT WE MUST OBEY THE GOVERNMENT?

Friends note, no one can serve anybody in their own convenience, so tell me, if God does not bless you in kingdom stewardship, how then can you get money to buy the food stuff you all are so adamant about. Don’t forget, seek ye first the kingdom of God, not cloth or food, and every other thing which involves food and clothes, even your sound health will be added into you. So friends, it’s your choice..
God have Mercy… How can some so called Christians make such comments.
