Nigerian Pastor Abel Damina of Power City International has directed Christians to stop clapping for Jesus in church.
According to the Man of God, clapping is for mockery in the Bible and was never meant for Jesus.
Pastor Damina shared this during a lecture where he taught the congregation to unlearn and re-learn the Bible teachings.
The Man of God explained that the only way Christians should worship the Lord is by lifting their hands.
“You don’t clap for Jesus. You wave in his honour”
The clergyman further clarified that while it is acceptable to clap as a form of celebration for other individuals in the congregation, the Lord should be celebrated according to the doctrine by lifting their hands.
Reactions have since followed the video of the Pastor’s teaching. While many argued that the Man of God was misinterpreting the scriptures, others believed the Bible should be self-learned.
