It's disgraceful to the image of the church - Celestial Church member speaks

Mr Dayo Uriel, a proud Celestial Church member and worker, spoke with Legit.ng on the trending issue. According to him, inviting Pasuma and Portable to perform portrays a disgraceful image.

"I’m Celestialian and I will forever be proud to be. “Very soon harvester will come and on that day the the weeed will be separated from the wheat.
The weeed will be gathered and burned while the wheat will be gathered into his barn” Mathew 13vs30
I want you all to know that this is not true celestialism, it’s really far from it, this is really disgraceful to the image of the church in all manner. For those who know the truth, it will set them free, he’s not one of us and this is a false image of true celestialism. But again it has been written in the book of “Mathew 7 vs 15-20 “warning is against false prophets."

Speaking further, Dayo stated a things of the flesh cannot be mixed with things of the spirit because it's a mockery of God.

He said:

"You can never mix the things of the spirit with the flesh, that’s him mocking God through the church identity forgetting what Galatians 6 vs 7-8 said:
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”
“Very soon harvester will come and on that day the the weeed will be separated from the wheat.
The weeed will be gathered and burned while the wheat will be gathered into his barn” .
