Presiding Bishop of the Perez Chapel International Church says there’s no link between Christianity and laziness.

According to him, the Christian religion does not encourage laziness on the part of its members.

Speaking on ‘A Walk With Jesus’ on Sunday, he said the keys of success “are the same whether you are in the business world or any field.”

“You can’t be a pastor of a big church if you are lazy because how can you keep coming out with sermons that will keep Doctors, Lawyers, a variety of people,” he said.

His comment was directed at a thought shared on the show that “Africans are a very interesting people, they can afford to close down a factory, turn it into a church and then go there and pray for jobs.”

Addressing such perception shared during the show, Bishop Agyinasre said such views are “misplaced”.

“In the first place, I haven’t seen any church in West Africa, and I have gone around the world, I have not seen any church in Africa that bought a factory, closed it down and turned it into a church,” he clarified.

According to him, on the other hand, churches have instead done the vice versa of what has been claimed.

“Every pastor wants to see his people work because when you work because when your people work, they will tithe because God blesses the work of our hands,” he added.

“Christianity doesn’t encourage laziness. You can’t put your hands between your legs and be singing…,” he pointed out.

He noted that people pass such comments about the church is “because the church preaches and their conscience is pricked.”

“A lot of them are sugar daddies, and they have a problem with the church preaching and saying you must be born again, and these young girls in the universities are getting born again … and because of that when the church is inviting these young people to come to church, you have a problem with that,” he stated.
