Kenyan preacher Wilfred Lai of Jesus Celebration Centre (JCC) has ignited controversy after claiming Sunday is not God's Sabbath but a day for worship initiated by the devil. The pastor condemned those who embrace this day as a holy time.
In a viral video, the man of God affirmed that the faithfuls of Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) will be happy with his sermon. Following these words, he went on to blast his congregants for embracing the Sunday worship saying their action was not only satanic but also a direct affront to the gospel.
Even though Lai is a protestant who worships on Sunday, he stated that the idea of embracing the day as one for worship was a scheme by the devil to "weaken the church" and neutralise Christianity.
According to the JCC founder, the Bible identifies Saturday as the seventh day of the week which all worshipers should observe and keep holy and not Sunday which has widely become an accepted routine among Christians.

It is noteworthy to remember that his church in Mombasa, Kenya, conducts services on Sunday and not Saturday as he advises.
"Sunday worship is of the devil if you did not know. I am not a prophet of doom, I'm a prophet of God. This thing about Sunday is what has weakened the church. Sunday worship is the greatest witchcraft of the church. Never was it started by God," he claimed during one of his prayer sessions.
The nationally revered cleric categorically stated that a section of his congregation would be irritated by his message about the exact time of the Sabbath Day but that would not bar him from speaking the truth.
"The Lord said remember the Sabbath and keep it holy. The Sabbath is not Sunday. You don't like it, you don't just like the truth," Lai said in the sermon that left the multitude in attendance noticeably silent.
Recently, a human rights activist named Patrick Eholor expressly lamented over the way Nigerians fall victim to fake pastors. He advised CAN, PFN to urgently do something about this.
