Ghana-based Nigerian singer, Mr. Eazi, has also shared his view on what ‘church’ means against US-based Ghanaian gospel musician Sonnie Badu’s view that it is wrong for the ‘altar’ (referring to the church) to be closed down per the President of Ghana’s directives.
The government of Ghana has placed a ban on all social gatherings and church services for Four (4) weeks to help contain the spread of COVID-19.
Using a bible verse in 2 Chronicles 20:9 to back his claim, Sonnie Badu said God will listen to our prayers if the altar is ‘activated’.
“'Should evil come upon us, the sword, or judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we will stand before this house and before You (for Your name is in this house) and cry to You in our distress, and You will hear and deliver us.
“On Sunday I took the time to explain what is going on, what presidents must do and what men of God should do ... While our members are home, it is time to run to the altar of God alone and plead mercy ... The altar carries power ... Let us activate it ... God will hear us .. let the church unite and fight together,” he posted on Instagram.
But Nigerian afrobeats musician Mr. Eazi has told him that God is omnipresent, adding that ‘let us stand in faith whilst obeying the laws of our land and the wisdom God has given to us Via our scientists.’
“Sir I think the presence of God is not limited to the church building, also altars can be in your Bedroom! There was no internet in Solomon’s time! Now via TV, Radio, Books, Live Feed the spirit of God stays moving beyond physical contact! Let us stand in Faith whilst obeying the laws of our land & the wisdom God has given to us Via our scientists!” Mr. Eazi replied.
Sonnie has not made any further comment yet, at the time of filing this report.
