Gospel singer, Donnie McClurkin says CHURCHES shouldn't dare to REOPEN

American famous gospel singer, Donnie McClurkin has countered Donald Trump's order to all state governors to reopen churches with immediate effect. He voiced his opinion on the issue on his Facebook page few hours ago, refers it as a political ploy by the president. He also informed all his members and followers that his church would not join other churches to reopen.

In his words, "Wisdom is the PRINCIPAL thing..."

"As pastor of PFC, I announce to all members...our ministry will NOT be involved in any political ploy of such a dangerous decision play to our religious sensibilities for political leverage! To suggest and instruct churches to reopen without meeting specific metrics given by the scientific medical experts is highly irresponsible, fool-hearty and potentially dangerous to our wellbeing! ESPECIALLY TO THOSE IN HEAVILY AFFECTED AREAS!"

"We will continue to lean towards and adhere to REASONABLE medical science and the CREDIBLE doctors and medical experts...along with our GOVERNOR and the wisdom of the Holy Spirit and my responsibility as pastor of thousands! THERE WILL BE NO REOPENING OF OUR CHURCH EDIFICE UNTIL IT IS SAFE TO GATHER IN THE HOUSE OF WORSHIP!"

"This political ploy to gain favor and votes from the faith-based community is blatant ...and will not be considered over my (our) pastoral duties to CARE for the members of the body of Christ! Our digital live-streams will ADEQUATELY serve the ppl LOCAL AND GLOBALLY until such time IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE when we can gather again!"

He concluded that he respects the decision of people who support the reopening.

His comment was met with heavy criticism from some Christians around the world, some saying that they have lost respect for him and would never listen to his ministrations again.

What do you think? Almost the same situation could be applicable in Nigeria. Do you think it is wise to reopen the church even when the COVID-19 is still potent?
