Okotie described wearing of face mask in the church as a shield between man and God.

“When a man is standing before God in church wearing a shield or mask, he is denying the finished work of the cross,” he said.

“Before we offer our sacrifices and lift up holy hands before God, we must make sure that everything is decent and in order.
