Divorced Pastor, Chris Oyakhilome says Christians should not divorce


Founding president of Believers’ Loveworld Incorporated, also known as Christ Embassy, Chris Oyakhilome who is separated from his wife, has said that divorce is not for Christians. He made the case against divorce in a short video clip.

Oyakhilome also said that the charges levelled against him by some media houses in Nigeria and South Africa are stupid and frivolous.

He said, “I understand that some media houses, particularly in Nigeria, and may be in South Africa, have been writing some real stupid things with frivolous charges. That’s crazy. I wasn’t accused of those things you said, nor did I commit those stupid things that you said…”

“…I’m not a preacher, I’m a man of God”.

“When it comes to Rev. Anita, pray for her. If you are married to a man of God, it doesn’t make you automatically mature, you can make mistakes..”

“Christians should not have a divorce, it shouldn’t be. But that doesn’t mean a Christian should not take this step, they may, but that doesn’t make it right, and we shouldn’t take one another to court. But when it happens, we are not the one going there, someone is taking us there. That’s the problem…”

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and Anita’s divorce was finalized on February 8, 2016.
