Police should not try me, unless they want trouble – Bishop Chukwuma holds church service amid Coronavirus

6

Archbishop of the Enugu Province and Bishop of Enugu Anglican Diocese, Most Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma, holds church service amid coronavirus, says’ police should not try me, unless they want trouble.

According to SUN, Chukwuma who faulted the order of government for churches and places of worship not to open, said it was unfortunate and wrong to categorise church and worship centres with drinking palours, night clubs, markets and companies.

READ BELOW:

“I have told them (Police) not to try it again unless they want more trouble for themselves and their families. There is no way you can ask the church of God to stop when we need prayers to bring healing upon the land, especially when we are faced with a problem as serious as coronavirus that has defied every human solution.

“It is wrong on the government to send police after worshippers. I think if they are serious, what they should do is to ensure that the hygiene protocol is kept, that the social distancing order is also kept, while encouraging those at the altar to pray the country out (of the pandemic). What can man do under this circumstance without God? What can even the President or our scientists do in this trying time without God? It is wrong for people to think that we will not find answers to what has befallen us through prayers. So, I want to warn that whoever is behind the disruption should stop in his own interest.

“The last thing I will do at this time is to close the doors of my church building. In my Cathedral, we worshipped today and we will observe all the Palm Sunday and Easter activities. I will worship on Monaday, Thursday as well as the Easter Sunday. It will be sad on anybody who tried to stop us because. We’re doing what we are supposed to do.

Enugu state should do the needful by charging this criminal masquerading as a man of God to court. It is only by so doing can sanctity of law be maintained. He should not be bigger than the state.

Is the Bishop holier than Pope? Tithes are no longer coming in and his coffers is getting dried. He should be made an example to other would-be violators of the law of the land in the name of the church. He doesn’t love God more than the rest of us. He won’t be able the save his members if they’re infested with the virus. He abandon them and leave them to their fate.

This is totally absurd, How can a whole Anglican bishop reason from his anus, so chukwuma is now wiser than government & other churches that suspended palm Sunday and Easter activities bc of this virus issues, y can’t he resolve to online service like his fellow colleagues did, a whole pope shutdown Vatican city bc of coronavirus, bt in Nigeria a local bishop that seek attention does what ppl to hear something. Practice what u preach……..this is disobedience to the government hope u know
