Holding church services online is unscriptural - Chris Okotie

The Nigerian Pastor of the Household of God Church International Ministries, Rev. Chris Okotie, has said What we call the online church is totally unscriptural.

Holding church services online due to the ban on social gathering as a precautionary measure against the spread of Coronavirus is not Biblical.

According to him, church service is supposed to be a physical interaction among believers and anything aside this isn’t based on the Bible.

He added that "We are dealing with one of the most sinister conspiracies in human history. For you to be in church, you have to be ecclesia, which is translated from the Greek word, ec, which is out, and the word caleo, called out.

“You cannot gather unto God until you are called out. That’s why Israel was called out of the world.

This phenomenon that we are talking about, the Internet and cyber churches, is totally unscriptural.

God knows where you are; if He was not interested in the assembly, you don’t need to come to church; you can pray and praise God in your house. He can see all of us. He doesn’t need computers.

But that does not denies Him(God)  who He is; that’s why the bible puts that verse as an imperative – you must not forsake the assembly of yourselves together.
