So Christ Embassy worshippers are mad that they paid N1k for their New Year crossover service?

Like he's been doing for the last few years, since 2010 I think, pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy made his followers pay N1,000 each as gate fee to attend the Church's New Year Crossover service which held at their Ikeja church HQ on Dec. 31st, 2014. The ones who could afford to buy the gate pass were allowed in, the ones who couldn't were asked to go back. Now, some of them are mad.

In 2013, the church said the reason they did this was to reduce the number of people who come for the annual service, because the venue couldn't handle the thousands that showed up, many or whom were not even members of the church. So, it was their own way of controlling the crowd.

So the HQ sitting capacity is about 20k, and let's say half of the crowd paid N1k each, that would be about N10m for the church from just gate fee. Some say it's extortion, that no church should ever ask for money for members to attend, some say they understand why the church would insist on this. What do you think? Is crowd control a reasonable excuse to collect gate fee at a church?

I don't understand why people would pay GATE FEE to go and worship God under d most dubious excuse. Well, l sincerely blame them, that's the level of faith we Christians now have but God cant be mocked for long............l also wonder if they had paid d supposed fee and the venue was still filled what would have happened then..........................smmh.

Hell no....... salvation is a free gift... if only we could understand...buh we all go to to the church nowadays to c d pastor nd his miracles not to connect with God.

Fake church. Let them keep deceiving themselves. Their pastor is getting divorced. Come on. All the signs are there to see how fake it is. If they wanted to control the crowd. They could have used first come first serve basis. DECEPTION

Personally I think crowd control shouldn't be a reason for collecting a gate fee. These days churches are more about money than God

They should have done pre registration before the day. So it would be on first to register basis. If they truly wanted to control crowd. And give exclusive passes to the registered people. They will register only people that will contain the church seating capacity. But they chose to fine people. Smh. God isn't asleep

For now we are fools to religion because of hardship and hunger and the pastors exploit this, making whoever does not do their bidding feel bad by using other members to work on the consciences of the strong headed. But when things get to a very bad stage, just know that things are about to take a turn for the better. Today, we are their fools: Tomorrow , we won't even bother to go to church even if we are faced with hunger and hardship. I won't call them outright thieves because they need money to run their institution(church), but to deceive, lie, sin to make that money......... Na so. I NOR GET USING HEAD 1K FOR ANYBODY.

Some of these Men Of God (MOG) do not believe in the existence of God! That is the reason why they do nonsense because they believe there is nothing like the judgement day deep down in their hearts. Money is all they need. And there is no issue on earth that doesn't bring forth opposing opinions from people. So, like some will say here, it was one of 2 options and no one was forced. After all, humans with wide open eyes ate grass when their prophet told them to do so.

All these Pentecostals are foolish! You work hard and your so called pastor who has succeeded in brainwashing them eats into their hard earned money.

Shut up there! When you arecontributed o needs to pray for forgiveness for being so gullible that you have no discerning spirit which is a free gift from God. All you gullible miracle seeking..oops! Magic seeking Christians! That's why you get extorted yet don't see it!
My Church (This Present House) held its cross over service at Eko Hotel so it could accommodate more than the regular church members, nobody was compelled to pay gate fees despite the cut throat price of the cost of the hall. Rather A few well meaning members volunteered to cover the cost.
LIRS TAKE NOTE! YOU NEED TO VISIT THAT CHURCH TO DEMAND TAX SINCE THEY EARNED AN INCOME ON DEC 31.

In my church, we were told before the day that people will always be many so we should come early! It should be like that, tell dem to come early, if they come late and miss it, FINE! So meaning the church members will also have to pay 1K to enter? LMAO! God is just too quiet Mehn! What a wonderful God we serve!

Unknown said...

This is my take... Christ Embassy could have aired it live which they have the capacity to do and ask members to attend their local/zonal/area center, were they will hookup n watch live, than everyone coming to Ikeja. And then give gate pass to a sizeable number through their cell/fellowship system for free. But to tell everyone to come n then charge them, say you discouraging crowd is suspicious. Church this days everything na money...

Anonymous said...

Fair enough reason Christ Embassy Church. However, if the gate fee was a genuine crowd control measure,1: has the church paid back or does the church intend to pay back the gate fee collected from attendees? 2: Was any prayer offered for those who couldn't afford to pay the gate fee? 3: Was there any other alternative broadcast considered to enable those who couldn't attend take part of the attending congregations on this particular day/event? I judge nobody but I feel I should remind our dear pastors supposedly preaching the gospel that, Jesus Christ was the most humble man on earth during his time. He gave to the people and took nothin g in return. In addition, he fed multitudes. Thousands of people and asked for nothing in return.

AdaM said...

Ds one too is Jonathan abi? Jesus preached n fed 5000 ppl as was recorded in the bible. Did He collect toll fees or ticket money? Has d church becom an event center dt pple would need a ticket bcos we need to reduce attendance or crowd? We all knw dt cross over services r usually jam packed with ppl. Couldnt they hv planned earlier for the unexpected crowd? Pls where are these pastors getting som of these things they r doing frm? Befor u know it now, som other pastors would emulate it. Its high time ppl open up their eyes. Jesus would never collect money frm ppl as a measure to control the crowd, knwing the gospel is "freely have u received, freely shall u give' pastors should pls in watever strstegy they r usin, stop selling the gospel.

So when did a church become an embassy that collects administration fees? Did you ever find anywhere in the Bible where Jesus Christ asked people for money to listen to Him? Even when He found traders in the temple extorting money from others He was so angry that He overturned their tables! So which Jesus Christ are you & your Pastor following? The one that offered salvation freely to all, to the extent of sacrificing His own life, or the another one? Please read the Bible & follow the way of Christ. May God grant you His wisdom & understanding.

@The good wife...I agree with you a million times over, if the whole of lagos state had paid the 1k each wouldn't they have allowed them all in?Only God knows those that are true and those who are false,.God please open each and everyone of our eyes so that we can know the real men YOU have called and the ones who got a missed call from unknown sources...its well

The venue was filled to capacity n nobody forced, wots ur freaking bxn, n moreover it was aired live in most Christ embassy churches, AIT, NTA networks, Superscreen, Loveworld Plus, loveworld sat n many oda television radio stations in Nigeria and all over the world. we reached alot souls live that very night n just for the records it was for crowd control. if u couldnt get in cos of 1k, u still cld have watched it live and v listened to the word of God. moreover always sound professional, cos u cannot close a mouth that God said that must be heard.

Lol! these ppl sef! So na thru charging and taxing of their church members them wan take reduce crowd trouble.? In other words, u are inviting the rich but discouraging the poor from the place of worship. If they really want to control crowd, make it a first-come-first-serve OR better still , they could have made it a delegate thing.

iF ITS REALLY ABOUT CROWD CONTROL, ONCE THE VENUE IS AT CAPACITY THEY CAN TURN BACK THE REST WITHOUT COLLECTING A DIME. SIMPLE. THIS REASON DOESNT SOUND HONEST.
