As a man of God, he should know better than disrespecting constitutes authorities. God wasn't confused when He inspired the writers of the Bible.

This act is punishable, release the 'sheepie' let them rest, must you extort them all the time!

If you must worship God, form a cell, at least of 2-10 people and worship God in your homes, who is deceiving all these gullible minds?

I even heard a church after locking up the building for worship still sends the church account number for the payment of tithes and offering... Thieves...

A time will come, men will leave the institutional church in search for Jesus, and the time is now...

You think a church service is more important than public health safety? Where did you leave your brain? When the western world with all their advancement are shutting down and advising social distancing
