The engagement of the Pastor in the free for all fight was all about tithes and offerings that Covid-19 have stopped coming as members are not paying online, he wasn't fighting to save souls.

[/s]Will you shut up? that is how you will be misquoting the Bible to support your fetish claims. Give what is Caesar's back to Caesar, the inscription of Caesar is on the money you are spending, give it back to Caesar as tax.

Disobedience is a sin before God....

If pastors themselves cannot obey simple instructions, will he go to heaven?

Nonsense. The taskforce should go for enforcement in the market place and leave the Church alone.

Okay
But can we see evidence of brutalized officials?
Some of this Covid-19 task force team are somehow crazy and try to overdo.

There is no way that you will walk into church premises without harassing worshippers, that you will get attacked.

But if you go there to harass people because of Covid-19, they will beat you up before Buhari comes to your aid.

Allow people to worship their God and feel joy since this useless government locked them indoors without food.

If the Pastor can't obey simple instruction then what is he teaching his members. Christianity came to Africa as a business venture.
