Founder and leader of Kharis Church in the United Kingdom, Pastor David Antwi has stated that anyone who plays instruments in church and collects money is a thief.
Pastor David Antwi stated this during a church service, adding that such a person is satan’s cousin.
Antwi called all the instrumentalists in his church to the front of the congregation and gave them serious words of advice. He said;
“If you play the instruments in church and you collect money, you are a thief”.
Pastor David Antwi’s assertion has garnered several reactions on the internet, majorly negative comments, with some questioning where this was stated in the Bible and a few also questioning his calling.
Many are of the opinion that instrumentalists or musicians working in the church should be paid for their skills.
