Founder and General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Dr. Mensa Otabil rejects the idea of reopening or easing the restrictions on churches during this times.
according to the ghanian pastor, churches should concerntrate on ensuring public safety and not stress on reopenning.In a virtual church service to his congregation, Mensa Otabil said until COVID-19 is over, opening churches now is a bad decision.
“This is not the time for churches to consider gathering together in assemblies because the crisis before us is not going down,” he urged.
he also added that: “Just when we thought in Ghana we were having control over the situation, we are beginning to realize the virus has a mind of its own. It doesn’t seem to correspond to some of the efforts we are making,”
Dr. Otabil urged for patience during the current phase while waiting for the time when churches can safely re-open for fellowship.
“It may not seem suitable to us but that is the price we pay to make the world a better place,” he said.
