Popular clergyman, Abel Damina, has stated that clapping is a mockery, hence it is wrong for churches to do so for God as a way of worship.
The Power City International Church clergyman, during a recent sermon, insisted that clapping as a form of worship to God was unbiblical.
Explaining the accepted pattern of exhalation in God’s doctrine,
Damina noted the lifting of hands in worship.

“How can you clap for Jesus? You clap for yourself, clap for your uncle, clap for your president, then you clap for Jesus, are they mate? In the bible when he says clap, it actually saying mock the people, clapping is for mockery. That’s why in the new testament there’s no teaching on clapping…
“When it comes to God who exalt an worship him according to the scripture we lift up holy hands. We relate to God doctrinally, when you’re not taught you will still be clapping.
“The only way we celebrate God’s goodness is by lifting up our hands. We don’t clap for Jesus we wave in honor. You don’t worship God on your terms you worship God on his terms.”
