A Nigerian Pastor, Glory Papaglo Igho, has warned Christians against employing the use of a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to bypass the federal government’s suspension of Twitter in Nigeria.
According to the clergy man, any Christian who uses VPN to access Twitter in defiance of government, has sinned against God.
Igho made this known on Facebook, saying that going against constituted authority is a sin before God.
He further buttressed his point by quoting a portion of the scriptures, Romans 13: 1-2 which says ‘anyone who rebels against the authority is rebelling against God”
He wrote; “As a Christian, if u use VPN to access ur Twitter acct. after govt. ban on it… Just know u have sinned against God.
Romans 13:1-2 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted. and they will be punished”.
