Kenyan pastor bans females from wearing underwear to church

Kenyan pastor, Rev. Njoh reportedly asked his female congregants to attend church services without panties or bras so "God can enter their bodies easily".

According to The Kenyan Daily Post,  the pastor's reasoning was that the undergarments are "ungodly" and people need to be "free in 'body' and 'spirit' to receive Christ".

The pastor added that women who continue to wear undergarments to church will suffer "dire consequences," and encouraged mothers attending his services to check their daughters to make sure they had obeyed the new rule.

The says one eyewitness who attends Njohi’s church reported that many of the women who were in attendance did obey the rule of their pastor and showed up without any undergarments on whatsoever.

Many people are questioning why the women in worship need to be “free” in their body and spirit when coming to church while the men are not required to do the same.

The church is located in an eastern suburb of Nairobi.

If your religious leader asks you to do this, would you accept and do so or would you tell them to 'go to hell'?
