Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Denies Adultery Allegations Amidst Divorce Controversy

Pastor-Chris-and-Anita-OyakhilomeLast month, BN brought you the news that Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy Church, and his wife, Anita Odegwa Oyakhilome, are reportedly undergoing divorce proceedings.

Anita is said to be filing for divorce on grounds of “adultery and unreasonable behaviour.” According to reports, the divorce case with Suit No FD14D01650, was filed on April 9, 2014 at Divorce Section A, Central Family Court, First Avenue House, High Holborn, London, UK.

For a long while, Pastor Chris remained mum on the issue. But now, he is breaking his silence, and has described the divorce allegations as “frivolous charges,” Punch reports.

Oyakhilome is said to have stated the following during a sermon he gave at his church on Sunday:

“You don’t know who a man of God is. I don’t go in that direction. I wasn’t accused of the things you said, nor did I commit those stupid things that you said and I don’t need to go into that level in such discussions. Jesus Christ was accused by many – a lot of frivolous charges. There will always be those who would like for it to be true. But you know, in spite of the accusations against Jesus, it didn’t change who he was. It didn’t change him.

There are preachers and there are men of God. I am not a preacher; I am a man of God and I go in the way I’m asked to go. It may cause some troubles with individuals but that’s not because I have done something wrong and when it comes to Reverend Anita, what I will say to you is ‘pray for her’…

Don’t act like those people. If you are married to a man of God, it doesn’t make you automatically mature. You can make mistakes; you can do something that is wrong. But some people expect the wife of a minister to definitely be at the level of that minister and so they may be looked upon and the expectation may be like that, but it’s a positional thing.

If a man of God is married, it doesn’t automatically mean that the wife of a man of God is therefore a woman of God. That’s not the way it is in the Bible. That’s why you don’t really find the wives of men of God mentioned in the Bible. How many of them? Who was Peter’s wife, did you ever know her name? You never find that out. Who was John’s wife? Did you ever read the name? What about all the other Apostles? How many of their names are written in the Bible. You never find their names.”

You have to understand something about a man of God. A man of God is not just someone who worships God or preaches God. A man of God is handpicked by God, set on course by God. If you study the scriptures, you will not find one man of God go against God, sinning against God.

The only things you might find will be a man of God, maybe in two different kinds of ways. Moses, for example; when he struck the rock twice, [he] was provoked by the anger of the people. [It was] not because he wanted to do something against the Lord.

No man of God does something against the Lord. Are you hearing me? A man of God is set on a course; there is a type of life that he is given. Then you have a young man, a young prophet; he wasn’t named; he was deceived by another man of God and so he went in a direction that God said ‘don’t go’.”

    From that statement this man comes off as being very arrogant and thinks lowly of his wife. I hope the divorce goes through as quickly as possible for her sake.

      Hello Bella,

      He also spoke against divorce, going to court and sin in that video. Why would you choose to publish some parts which you think are interesting to you and your readers, and leave the rest?

      Kindly upload the video here so people can watch and hear from the horse’s mouth. All I can ever say is for us to condemn evil, but do it in a way that we are not being judgmental. All we need to do in this situation is to pray for them and also pray for the entire house of God, ie if you wish. All churches in the world are one body in Christ, no Christ Embassy, Catholic nor Redeem in heaven, and no Bishop, Pope, Pastor, nor choir member in heaven.

      This journey sef is not an easy one, sometimes one gets tired and confused, but we are not meant to give up. May God help and strengthen us till the end.

      Kindly note: I am not a Christ Embassy member.

      God bless you.

      I am not a fan of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome neither am i a member of his church but i wouldn’t wish him bad in any way, bcos of what ever he is going through to an extend of wishing for the divorce filed against him to push through but rather i will pray that God gives him strength to pass through all the trials and temptations he is facing.But to u BABOUSHKA who wish for the divorce to push through i pray that the problem u will face in ur life will not only be that of divorce but some thing worse that u will go some day to Pastor Chris Oyakhilome to seek prayer and forgiveness in Jesus name Amen.

      You need to be in his shoes to know where he is coming from. Calling him arrogant because of what he is saying means you don’t get it. Your hope that the divorce goes through is unfortunate. To be a Woman or Man of God is a call. You don’t automatically become one because your spouse is,

    God really sees everyone’s heart and will judge them accordingly…………….this sermon was not not appropriate in my own opinion before there can be a divorce the 2 parties would have done something wrong….This blame game will not work at this point in time, what you guys need is to seek the face of God. If you can’t stay married again for whatever reasons preaching publicly against the mother of your children is going to set your whole ministry against her, That is not fair at all…….

      Incredibly inappropriate mud-slinging from the altar when dude really needs to be making any arguments that are needed in front of the divorce judge. I had nothing to say about this impending divorce and the rumoured allegations before now but he struck some very low blows. Why couldn’t he just have said something non-committal like “We’re going through a trying time in our marriage and I humbly ask that if at all possible, you keep my wife and I in your prayers. We’re not perfect human beings but trying to find perfection in God’s Hands and want to still be available for use in His Ministry, no matter what happens”?

      Mr. Oyakhilome, you are addressing an impressionable congregation and should have had the presence of mind to rise above the temptation to make yourself look like some sort of Christ-like rock star. Now you’ve come across instead as a bit of a douche.

This kind of statement would be a disaster from anyone….and here he is trying to cower behind a supposed calling, twisting words and logic to suit himself….. How did he stay married to her all these years with this kind of resentment…. no be winsh be dat?? Biko let me waka b4 I sin against man of God!.

      September 9, 2014 at 11:41 pm

      the man says he cannot sin
      “No man of God does something against the Lord. ”
      this is a lie lie lie. when moses struck the rock instead of speaking to it, that was disobedience and that is a sin. Saul was anointed and burned the offering instead of waiting for samuel. david slept with his worker’s wife and killed him, God made it clear to david that it was a sin. Peter denied Jesus. Jesus forgave him. a man of God is first a man and can sin

      MSA chop knuckle abeg. I remember when another scandal rocked the BLW this was years ago and it was about a picture and video that surfaced about Chris Oyakhilome who went to TB Joshua’s church the synagogue and hands where laid on him by TBJ himself . The Christian community in Nigeria cried foul at that time and there was robust reply that was broadcasted life to only his church members. I remember living the auditorium that day feeling used and brain washed that was when I decided enough was enough. He has gotten so big now and he thinks he is beyond reproach. If you talk now they will quote “touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm” . Any one that believes in the holy trinity and professing the word of God is his anointed . He should have just kept quiet like COZA pastor . Our political leaders are untouchable ,our spiritual fathers are untouchable I don tire sef I dey go back to my village.

      Please for those of us criticizing! inputing blames on Pastor Christ or Reverend Anita,I strongly advise we put a stop to it. This is a trying moment for both couples and we should not forget the fact that they are humans. Like the teeth clashes against the tongue so are marriages liken to be. Reverend Anita, filing for a divorce on the account of Unreasonable behavior and in appropriate relationship with members of staff is totally not acceptable. She knew that pastor Christ was a man of God before she got married to him and that every man of God is free to interact with his members privately as to keeping some secrets that they don’t want him to disclose to anyone other than God. She should also know that as a born again we learn to forgive as Christ has also forgiven us. Any hurt feelings making room for corrections and show understanding other selling her esteemed marriage that every woman out there wishes to have. Has there not been time she hurt the mans feeling before? He never filed for a divorce because he valued his marriage. Even the bible frowns @ divorce! why should she go for a divorce when she knows there is this secret place where she can touch the mans heart and any hurt would be apologized for other than separation. Lets pray for both couples! as Pastor Christ is human he can still err and the wife too is not perfect. Show me a perfect man I will show you some one buried in the grave without a sin. Marriage is two imperfect beings coming together and trying to walk together towards an unending journey of perfection.Dear Lord I pray for this couples, that you rebuke the devil for their sake who has decided to sift them as wheat to destroy this great calling and ministry you have placed in their hands. Satan, the Lord rebuke you, stay-off this marriage for good IJN ,Amen.

      September 11, 2014 at 5:24 pm

      It’s not even about the allegations any more but the sheer arrogance that he portrayed in his response; the belittling of his wife in public, his implying that because he is a man of God he cannot sin or do ‘stupid things’ as he put it. When anybody acts like this, they deserve to be criticised. It doesn’t mean we are judging them; but we want them to understand that we do not condone with their deeds.
      If it were someone else with no ordination, people will criticise and rebuke now. However, you want people to just sit quietly and say nothing because a ‘man of God’ is concerned??

    • Bibi

      September 19, 2014 at 8:11 pm

      Wait till you are in the same position as Pastor Anita and go through the same pain she is going through before preaching about how “accepting she should have been because she is married to a pastor bullshit”… a wise man once said “He that wears the shoe knows where it pinches”… It’s so easy for you to be holy and self righteous; quoting the Bible since its’ not you going through it

    • michaels

      September 21, 2014 at 1:29 pm

      I am in sympathy with the couple, but those who think that it’s an opportunity to vituperate the man of God they should be prepared to answer before God. It is one thing to insult a man of God before a matter it is another for God to take it up with the people remember Miriam of Moses so it is not a matter of not touching my anointed. Just becareful how ur mouth runs

Even Jesus Christ was tempted… Why don’t we channel the very amount of energy used in criticising the both couple into praying for them.

    “If a man of God is married, it doesn’t automatically mean that the wife of a man of God is therefore a woman of God” – so you have been deceiving people! You knew she wasn’t a woman of God yet she ran the UK branch, and contributed to rhapsody. The man’s arrogance is quite entertaining

      Is people like you that turn the word God upside down Jeeze I cant stand the hypocrisy so because he is a man of GOD he should not be criticized openly .The bishop who was caught on video physical abusing his wife in a parking lot had the guts to defend his actions with frivolous accusations against his wife please to day where is he. He should have done what his mentor did when he was faced with similar dilemma and that is to keep quiet and seek the face of GOD and work towards a reconciliation with his wife if he turely believes in the sanctity of marriage

      Be careful what you say about men of GOD. Do not bring GOD”s wrath upon you. Focus on your life. The best you can do is to pray for them. Marriage is not an easy thing. If we had our own way, marriage will not be an option. Rather, we will focus on GOD’s word everyday. However, marriage is necessary hence the need for all to being praying for the married and yet to be married. GOD touch your hearts with empathy. GOD BLESS YOU.

      Osato, the fact that pastor chris spoke is not what is wrong, but many may have issues with the content of his speech. At this point those that love him and his ministry should go on their knees for both of them. There is nothing that God cannot change. Thank you.

      Please watch your words against any man of GOD. How will you feel if someone puts information about you out there, let alone a false one. Let’s show some decorum in the way we talk and criticize people. Pastor Anita did not ask for your comments on her decision. The bible says should judge not and touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm. You all have failed because you could not even show the simplest act of love for a fellow human being in crisis let alone a man of GOD. How then dare you point fingers at people who are making positive impact into the lives of many. Judge not and show mercy. If you want the FATHER to show you mercy, then exhibit it. You have all failed in speaking this way about a man of GOD. No matter your convictions, keep them to yourself and pray for them. Don’t forget the kingdom of GOD is under heavy attack. Watch it. He who thinks is standing should be careful lest he falls. A word to the wise is enough. Love you all and GOD BLESS YOU.

    His egotism is offensive, and his response is predictable. Granted, only he and Anita know what really happened. But history has showed us that pastors, men of God, prophets etc, when accused or caught in error RARELY EVER admit they are wrong. They hide and lie. I’m sure in time the truth will come out.

    But this letter is a damn shame. He should have kept quiet. Abi is that what Jesus did when he was accused? hiss

They want to associate themselves with God but will never be ready to lead the kind of life those who really are close to the Almighty lead. Of course there will always be frustrated and desperate people with 3rd world’s mentalities to follow them blindly. What a pity!

You didn’t see this coming, did you?. Even the bible said it. DO NOT BE DECEIVED FOR GOD CANNOT BE MOCKED WHATEVER A MAN SOWETH THAT HE SHALL REAP. God knows the truth and very soon the world will know also.

    The truth is even clear from the way and manner he spoke… If u want to know someone who speaks according to the bible, read the scriptures… Pastor Chris, Reverend Anita and other pastors even the so-called Fathers who claim are from God or sent by God are simply fake…. Dont stick your ears to just what someone tells u or what u think is right let your life be guided by the scriptures and let your thought be in line with the scriptures…. God is not an Arthur of confusion! …the Churches of Christ greets You..(Rom 16:16) He who has ears to hear, let him hear.(Matt 11:15)

      Why the heck didn’t he say that, then – i.e. “both of us are human and capable of mistakes, only God knows the truth, please allow us to work through this and pray for us” – instead of adding fuel to the speculation?? Why would he choose to say this when he understands how much damage it can cause???

      Well, I am sorry but whether the accusations are true or not, this statement speaks for itself. I would be more respectful of him if he came out and said something along the lines of ‘ my wife and I are going through a trying and difficult time. I am aware of what is being said and published in the press but all I ask of you at this time is for you to pray for us’..

      His pride is coming through in this statement and as a man thinketh in his heart, so he is. In my opinion, this is not the statement I would expect from a servant of God. Note that I said servant because that is what a minister should be. All this ‘man of God’ ‘man of God’ biz- Mscheew!

      Yup, all of these folks casting stones… just like the so called “Man of God” did in his ‘Soap Box’ monologue up there. My friend, in this situation your guy not only cast stones at his estranged wife, he pelted her with rocks, huge rocks at that. How can a man who has been the husband and father in a family for over 20 years reduce his wife’s ministry over the same period of time to such denigrating comments like, immature, not at the level of a minister and less than a woman of God? Who say’s that to another Christian? And to cap it off he employs his guile to perform the typical Biblical wizardry so that as usual his congregants in their hypnotized states of gullibility will take his words and further castigate not only Reverend Anita, but also the wives of the multitude of male pastors who have been ordained by that Church. …profound wiliness from a so called “Man of God”.

    I see the devil right there trying to destroy a beautiful family that has held strongly unto over the years. Admittedly we all have our challenges so do men of God also but that doesn’t also rule out the fact that they are humans and are bound to make mistakes. Whether this whole rumor is true or not you and I are not in any capacity to backlash or make mockery of them. The one who has the power to judge them is God and not even u and I cuz he is the all knowing and all seeing God. I don’t know what has becom of we Christians today, it seems we get so excited and take the pleasure in fuming what has happened rather than to intercede on their behalf. As for me I will not condemn whoevever is involved in this but as the bible says be careful those of you who claim are up and standing least ye fall. No one is beyond the devils vices and schemes even Jesus in the garden of gestemane was tempted by the devil my prayer is that The Lord will shame and defeat the devil once again in this matter so that the world will not mock us!

    Do you also know that the book of 1 Timothy 2: 8-15 “1 Timothy 2:8-15New King James Version (NKJV)

    Men and Women in the Church
    8 I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; 9 in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, 10 but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works. 11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. 12 And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. 15 Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control.”
    also makes us understand that a woman should be indeed silent, that’s actually why no woman was given d authority to become a preacher (to the church), an apostle (to lead the church), a deaconess, Pastors (same as an Elders, Overseers, Shepherds). He might know that an wanted to point it out but knows he would be known to be a hypocrite which he is. He calls her Rev. Anita, she is a pastor in a church in the UK, all this points out to the fact that he is simply FAKE!!! as well as all those who practice this in their and call themselves MEN OF GOD!

And it is only in Nigeria you hear these things in the UK here who has time? Won’t you focus on your own race as a Christian than airing wrong and misconstrued comments about a man of God.

      I am a christian and I believe that leaders in the church (men and women) have to be accorded some level of respect. But, it irks me to see how quick christians are to pull out the “touch not my anointed card” or related verses when anything that isn’t positive is said about church leaders! These people are men and women of God and not God so know that they are not infallible and when they err, people have a right to point that out. Because of some direct and indirect teachings most christians are misguided and have learnt to look upon these leaders as though they were God himself and revere them in an unhealthy way even more than God! Stop twisting the scriptures to accommodate shenanigans. The Jesus you call upon will not stand for double standards. Righteousness must start from His own house.

      I do not care for whatever it is that’s going on between them. Every household has its fair share of battles to fight. Dissecting another person’s life is not a hobby but I will say that this statement from him is in poor taste. All I can see is a man trying to exonerate himself and indirectly shift all wandering gazes to his wife. What the heck does “pray for her” mean? Let’s assume that she is indeed to be blamed for everything, wouldn’t it be better to put it in a more appropriate way? How about pray for US? His statement has arrogance, delusions of grandeur and chauvinism all over it. The wife of a man of God is positional right? At what point exactly? When it’s all rosy or when life’s issues come up? Listing disciples and emphasising the absence of their wives in the pages of the bible and even going further to imply their irrelevance? How derogatory!

      Being a man (or woman, for women who think like him) of God is not a ticket to permanent purity and grace. We all sin. We all fall in and out of grace. No matter how close to God you are, you can never be God- faultless and blameless and it takes a wise leader to know that and make his followers know that.

    Please children of God,let’s all pray for this family. They need our support. Let us not forget that, the devil is always looking for means to attack the church so that the sheep can be scattered. At a time like this,all we can do is pray for the fallen. We truly don’t know what is truth about this, but the almighty God who sees the deepest parts of our hearts knows it all. And no matter what He is able and willing to forgive our darkest sin. So please let’s use wisdom and ask God for mercy and possibly help this marriage and keep this family together, as well as God’s people all over the world. It is not good for us to rejoice over people’s misfortune. They never envisaged anything like this. Nobody knows tomorrow. We can all make mistakes, but with support from others we will rise up again and even stronger. Let’s leave everything in God’s hand and God bless us all

Pastor Chris and his wife should never have lived apart at all for whatever reason! This is what the devil has used now to cause a split. Look at Baba Adeboye or Papa Oyedepo or Bishop Idahosa and other men of God. Their spouses are always by their sides. With all types of mammy water spirits in the church today ministers are always very careful and make sure their wives are around them. God help this couple with these 2 very beautiful children. They have been a source of blessing to many, I have never been to their church but I feel sad about all what I am reading about them.

It’s better for worse Rev Mrs , i am sure you know that but Why now after 23years ma’am of your nurturing, sacrifices and so much more you know best , it’s not 23 min !

If u must pray , pray about that not for a man who doesn’t know that If you don’t have a reasonable defence say nothing at all . The ones that need the prayers more are the children caught inbetween.

If your wife is divorcing you ‘MOG, that indicates to me that something is terribly wrong. You should be asking us to pray for you both for God’s intervention.

    Nigerians… THIS IS RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM. IF PASTOR CHRIS WAKES UP AND TELLS THESE PEOPLE TO KILL HIS NAME, THEY WILL.

    Can pple for once stop saying the devil wants to break up this happy family. I swear devil dey for club somewhere now dey try carry olosho and pop champagne. Una come dey call the poor man name for oyakhilome family matter. What i will say is simple, chris is the reason for all that is happening to him. You all typing rubbish saying judge not a man of God… What will you call what chris just did by the above statement? He judged his wife, saying she’s not a man of God or whatever he was trying so hard to feed his congregation. IF UNA SAY MAKE WE NO JUDGE, THEN I WONDER WETIN MAKE AM THINK SAY HIM GET THE RIGHT TO JUDGE HIM WIFE. Nigerians are beginning to make these pastors feel like they are God. Uncle jerry coil hair, no matter what you say, no matter pple or rather mumu pple wey still decide follow you, notin do you at all.. Na your mugu them be, chop, na when you deal with them finish them eyes go open. No one knows this man better than his wife, yet this woman don tire and won pack her load go. Make una leave her in peace and give her with is her’s make she dey go (if my assumptions are right, court fit use uk branh of that church compensate her ooo).lololololol

    If God calls you and says your friend ‘X’ should be your deputy no 1 and your friend ‘Y’ should be the deputy no 2, then you marry and your wife wants to be deputy no 1 because she4 your wife, but God didn’t tell you to change the hierarchy and make her deputy no 1, then because of pressure you disobey God and make her deputy no 1, what do you think God will do to you for making that kind of big mistake? Do you remember what Eve did to Adam that billions of people are suffering because? Also remember, a husband will face God independently of his wiffe and d wife also independently of the husband. I will never obey my wife to disobey God because behind me are given lives of millions of people to protect which just a disobedience could lead them all astray. Pastor Chris loves His wife and She also loves her husband- the current issues are just issues of Posiion or no position and not of adultery (what is the name of the 2nd person involved in d aultery? No name! And there was no adultery in d first place.

      “Do you remember what Eve did to Adam that billions of people are suffering because?”

      Eve didn’t do anything to Adam, Adam was standing right next to Eve and kept quiet through out her conversation with the devil AND even went ahead to eat the forbidden fruit when she offered it to him right after her conversation with the devil. Creation didn’t fall because of Eve, It fell because of Adam who chose to eat the forbidden fruit when he knew better. Eve was deceived by the devil., Adam wasn’t.

    If a woman wants to LOVE she can love, if she want to kill she can kill and if she want to destroy she can destroy no matter who you are as long as you have hurt her feelings. (A heart of a woman is a deep SEA) Pst Anita are sure there are no Men and Women of GOD who could have helped you sorting out this mess than what you did airing this. That’s the problem wen you have no mentor to look to. Those who are advising you to divorce check them, are they still with their husbands or they divorced and they want you to join them. u you may not know what they go through in their marriages sum it is worse than yours, only that they have kept the secrets and they want to behave as if they are OK. Am repeating this check the marriages of your advisors welloo welloo. In my country one prophetess also divorced the husband, their story was all over the news papers whenever they went in court, she even chased the husband saying she was the founder of the church, Ask me today they are together again. Mama nothing is hard for GOD to do if your husband is adulterous please just tell Papa GOD to Change Him. don’t let the Devil Destroy what GOD has put together. The Devil is not happy to see YOU and YOUR husband depopulating his kingdom. you have come along way Mama don’t, don’t and don’t give the devil a chance in your marriage. And to Papa Chris if its true You need deliverance also cause that’s a demon in you, how can you do such a thing truly above all sins. That is betraying your wife, do what DAVID did when he released that he had sinned he confessed and GOD forgave Him. The Bible says when you divorce you have to wait until the other person dies that’s when you can marry again are you sure you will wait. . . To error is human but to forgive is divine. No Man is righteous. Only Jesus Christ the son of the living GOD

    Pastor chris, as the head of the home, it lies on you to make it work out. Apologize to your wife, take a leave from the ministry, woo her back if u really ever loved her,since u know she needs prayer and not both of you. Do deliverance for her by given her the greatest sex ever, make her ur number priority after d holy spirit. Let her handle your itinerary for the year. You will be amazed at what great sex and communication can do in restoring a marriage. 2 wrongs dnt make a right.

    People tend to forget that Pastors are men, mere mortals. It is only the anointing that makes the difference. Relationships can get very complicated (married people can attest to this)
    especially when you are in the public eye the pressure on the marriage becomes even harder make una leave the man for God. Shuo!!!

    Bella, You published half truth and left other parts of what he said out. You are making peopke to make comments based on half information. You are therefore making people to err and sin with their write up. You will reap what you have sown. Pastor chris said in the part you ommitted tha he doesnt believe in divorce, neither is it write for a christian to go to court. Also, that its wrong to mix righteousness with sin. He was never accued of adultery, its people like bella who have included that in the suit. Continue, you will reap in the future looking for who will help you everywhere.
    Its up to you to listen and change your selfish and malicious journalism.

    Double standards and hypocrisy. Many people (whom I suspect are members of Christ’s embassy), are coming to quote bible verses about judgement and the famous ‘touch not my annointed and do my prophet no harm’. I am very sorry. but when giving opinions or making statements, we should always try to be fair and objective.

    This is a man who constantly refers to himself as a” man of God”, yet there is nothing Godly about the statement above. The issue is not even whether he is guilty or not of the allegations made against him. The matter at hand, and what most people are commenting on are his comments. From these comments, he implies that he is without sin, which to me is blasphemy. Secondly, the way he talks about his wife is just sickening. Reducing her to a fallen being who needs the prayers of his church members; belittling her role in their ministry/business now that all is not rosy.

    We may not have the right to judge others but we should criticise them if they act or behave in a manner that leaves a lot to be desired. If a so-called man of God were to commit murder(hypothetically speaking), should we not criticise and expect him to face the law? Or would we just stay quiet and say ”Oh the devil is trying to destroy the church; judge not; touch not my annointed;etc.? This habit of always elevating preachers and ministers above all other men and the law is the reason why there’s so many paedophiles in the Catholic church.

    What i see here are people speaking as mere fanatics. We are now worshipping men and not giving to God what is God’s. We will pray for our ”men of God” and for everybody else who falters; but we will also criticise them and make them know that their actions or omissions were incorrect. Not all criticism is Judgement.

    BE TRUE WHEN IT’S HARD
    Mar 8:27-38
    Jesus was true to us when he was down here. Yet it wasn’t easy. Being true was never harder. It drove him clear to Calvary’s shame. But he went. He never flinched. And he never fails us now. No matter how we have been untrue, or neglectful, or ashamed, or have ignored him, when we come, sorry, for help, he always gives it. Surely we’ll be true to him in speech and life, no matter how hard!…,

    Pastor Chris, by his choice of words, is not only admitting guilt, he is full of bull crap. To say such demeaning and obnoxious things about His wife in a public domain, after living an adulterous and hypocritical life for so long, yet claiming to be a man “of” god” makes him a douche-bag, a blatant liar and damn right deceptive. Most importantly, in my view this whole saga should serve as a wake up call for the many Christ Embassy Church congregants who have lapped up Pastor Chris’s every word for many years ! He can only lead you where he is headed – the eternal abode of all unrepentant adulterers and liars! Redeem the time, my brethren!

    Pastor Chris response only reveals the deception in religion as practised in Nigeria. The GO’s equates themselves with GOD and perpetuate all kinds of things with the phrase ‘Man of God’. His arrogance, contempt and condemnation of his wife speaks volume and clearly justifies the wifes’s ground for divorce. I pity all women in Christ Embassy bcos their pastor has just revealed how lowly he thinks of them and their spiritual end, just sparetyres not worthy of mentioning. Ref. Do u know the name of the wife of the chosen one named Pastor Chris? Pastor Anita just saved him. Now, no name will mentioned and he will be equal to the other saints triumphant like Peter, Paul etc. Gullable Nigerians make una shine una eyes ooh.

    greetings to you all in the name of our lord Jesus christ who out of mercies and grace have been keeping us alive uptil date.i want to talk here as a pastor,a brother and a son,indeed i felt so bad when i see a Man who have been so loaded with so much that millions of people comes to listen to him be little to this level.indeed sir i done know if you have benn reading all this comment but i pray yu read this one.we are all servant of the most high and if you can take this it shall be better for you and the family as a whole.actually your wife taking you to the court is so wrong for her to do that,even if it was what she wont have done that,but looking at your message on sunday i feel so bad,that you could be little your own wife,a woman who have stood by you for this years,the mother of your children,and the one who have taking christ Embassy in UK,canada and in Europe in general to the level where its today.and you came out to say if you are a man of God that does not mean that your wife is authomatically a woman of God,that if you are marry to a man of God that does not mean that you are mactured,and that there should pray for your wife,sir i feel so bad about this,we all study philosophy and Shychology,and we do understand all what you meant by that,equally saying that no man of God can sin against God,sir we do study the scripture,and i belive you do know as we equally do.we are humanbeings and we can never take the place of God.all i will say is that both of ou and your wife have gone wrong,but i will plead with you to humble yourself as benin hinn did,he forgot who he was and humble himself and went to the public and told his wife on tv that he love her and the children love her too,and just because of that singular act so many souls were worn into the kingdom,because only this act of sunday have cause so many young convert to live the church,and even some of the old christain.sir and this alone equally will be what the devil will used to preach against you and the ministry.and remember that a single so that will go to hell shall be accountable for by us men of God if we are responsible for that.so im pleading to you as the head of the family to go and bring back your wife,try to listen to her as well.and led the devil be put to shame.better still you can even came on cable and tell her you love her and that you want her home,that will not reduce anytin from you and instead it shall show the level of macturity you have attend.and that will give the woman the responsibilty to see were she have falling and came and seek for forgivness.all i will say here to conclude is that done allow the devil to take control over your human nature,and remember that if the divorce is sign sir others things will begin to came in like the sharing of properties,the will have to access the property and the churches you have,you know that can take you out of focus,i done want to go so far about what will happen if the divorce is accepted.so sir i will end by saying that go and bring back yur wife,because we love you so much and we done want to loose the respect we have for you,stay bless and focus and settle things right as we shall be willing in hearing from you,yours pastor alem chris

    is the allegation put before God? It is put before the court of human judges, so every one is right to his own human judgement. or is God the one to give verdict on the divorce? We should know that they were on contract to live together, any of them can call for a termination.

Anita was patient,supportive in expanding your ministry and still is an unbeatable mother that gave you two beautiful daughters. Show her respect and learn from bennyhill. Pastor you need serious prayers not anita because you did not love her as christ love the church.We all love you pastor christ our mentor and spiritual father please practice what you preach

      He doesn’t need to prove anyone wrong or right. That battle isnt worth fighting. Time tells the truth. If Anita leaves today, Pastor Chris wouldn’t lose a peny . If she divorces him, what next? Would she marry someone else or just remain single at her age? She has tried to endure from day 1 in her marriage to 22years or more of her marriage so should continue enduring. She doesn’t live with him so there is still freedom to what ever she wants to do because she isn’t caged unless she is planning to go astray. She should focus on the work of God over there and her kids for now till her kids gets married and start having their own kids which she would become a grandma ( greater responsibilities) so no time for her to think of the negativity of her husband. Only a woman can hold her home so she should continue the journey of endurance. Pastor Chris is a busy man and also a traveller. If is into all that has been said about him, she should try and come closer to find out why. If he refuses, create other means to be happy and busy. I understand the emotional aspect of Anita, but she should also understand that since she didn’t leave after 5-10years of marriage when all things were a little bit tough, why now she is more than 20years in the marriage. At least she should be used to something by now.
