Laurie Idahosa Supports FG Guideline For Church Reopening Says “God Is Not Limited By A Mask”.
Pastor and wife of Bishop FEB Idahosa, Reverend Laurie Idahosa has shared her opinion on the new guideline put in placed by the federal government for the proposed reopening of church.
As part of measures put in place to check mate the spread of Coronavirus, several state governments have come up with new guidelines for religious organizations to follow before they can be allowed to conduct services. Among the guidelines is that all members of a church or mosque must wash their hands before coming into a religious center, they must wear face masks during service and observe social distancing.
The release of the guideline has since been met by opposition from some believers who feel the guidelines ”ridicules” their faith in God and that they are not meant to come before God in fear of any disease as he is the healer.
Reverend Laurie Idahosa has taken to her social media account to share her opinion on the issue and also openly support the instructions put in place by the FG while arguing that the use of face mask and other preventive measures does not limit or affects one’s faith and connection with God.
“Wearing your face mask in church does not affect your connection to God in any way. His presence cannot be limited by social distancing and by honoring the governmental health and safety measures.
“If you say that God is not honored and Christians are not sincere with their faith because they obey the law and seek to protect themselves and others, than your Gospel is not the Gospel of the Kingdom, the Power of God.
“God is not limited by a mask. We are still experiencing miracles, signs and wonders. We are still seeing people give their lives to Christ, we are still equipping the saints to do the work of the ministry…. and yes, we are doing it in a way that respects the health and safety of our community of faith.
“We welcome you back to church. From our experiences, the level of deep conviction and unshakable faith has risen during this pandemic. Come home to church and experience the presence of God together with the brethren. We miss you.
HELPFUL HINT: Be sure to practice good dental hygiene. When you wear your mask properly, you are forced to smell your own breath. Taking breath mints along is not a bad idea.” She shared
