Names of pastors in nigeria who are members of church of satan
Prominent pastors in the country and readers of P.M.NEWS have slammed Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his Christ Embassy Church for imposing a N1,000 toll fee on worshippers who attended New Year?s Eve service at the Christ Embassy Headquarters in Lagos, [ South-West Nigeria.
P.M.NEWS had reported in its 5 January 2011 edition how Christ Embassy pastors sold tickets valued at N1,000 each to
worshippers who wanted to attend the crossover service in their church.
Indigent worshippers who could not afford the money were denied access and sent back by security men at the gate. The church explained that it collected gate fees from worshippers to control the huge crowd that always besieges Christ Embassy on New Year?s Eve service.
This development has outraged many Nigerians, including prominent pastors, at home and abroad.
The pastors who spoke with P.M.NEWS yesterday and readers, who reacted on described the imposition of toll fee by Christ Embassy as a sacrilege.
The Prelate, Methodist Church Nigeria, Dr. Ola Makinde, described Oyakhilome?s action as anathema and abuse of Christianity.
?It is a sacrilege and commercialisation of religion. It is an abuse of Christianity,? he lamented.
Founder, Soul Winning Chapel, Rev. Moses Illoh, said that such an act ?is sacrilegious,? adding that the gospel of Christ is supposed to be free and not to be paid for.
?There is no excuse for this. The church of God is for everybody, both for the poor and the rich. The church where they collect money before you can go in to worship is not a church.?
According to Primate Elijah Ayodele of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, such pastors who collect money from worshippers should be stoned to death or be crucified.
?Is this possible? Such church should be destroyed and such pastors should be stoned to death. Pay N1,000 to enter a church? Is the church in heaven? It is never done.
?If it is possible, let the government intervene. These pastors are for Satan and such pastors should be crucified. It is embarrassing,? he lamented ]
