The former General Evangelist of Christ Apostolic Church, Worldwide, Prophet Samuel K. Abiara, has urged Ministers of God in Lagos State to abide by the guidelines of the state as each of the guidelines was in the interest of the people.


Prophet Abiara made this known to Saturday PUNCH on Friday while reacting to the news of the reopening of religious centres in the state.


The cleric said the church does not have the right to dictate to authorities as the Bible clearly instructs that the people in government should be honoured as they have been appointed by God.


Prophet Abiara said, “We thank God for the life of our governor, he has been working very hard and we pray that God will continue to help him. It is good that he opened the churches as the house of God is the house of prayer and people should gather to pray.


“But on the issue of restricting members of a certain age, we will talk to the governor to revisit the issue as we believe that there is nothing God cannot do.”


Prophet Abiara added that churches should devise means within their power to hold services in line with the government’s guidelines and whatever objections they had should be humbly presented to the government as a piece of advice.


He added, “According to the Bible, we must not disobey those in government. We can only advise and devise means to cooperate with the directives of the government.
