Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of the Christ Embassy Church in Nigeria and one of the most recognized evangelists in the world is known as a godly man. Allegations of a divorce of his wife has Oyakhilome speaking out and denying any such thing. During a recent Sunday sermon, Pastor Oyakhilome made his first statements about the divorce and in his words says that the news of a divorce is ‘crazy and stupid’.
Oyakhilome is well known throughout the world for his Christ Embassy Church which is headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria. He was also the founder of Believers’ Loveworld Incorporated and is also the head of three Christian based television stations throughout the world. Oyakhilome states that divorce is against what is written in the bible and as being a Christian man and a deliverer of God’s word that divorce is not an option that he would be able to take. Oyakhilome has stated that the only way that he would consider a divorce from his wife is if she insisted on it and according to Oyakhilome the rumors of his wife wanting a divorce are simply not true.
‘Christians must not and they certainly should not have a divorce. It should not be but you also have to see that a Christian does not have to take that option. They may do it but it certainly does not mean that it is right’ said Pastor Oyakhilome. The pastor went on to state that being married to a preacher or someone who goes out and does God’s work does not exactly make the woman one who is of God. Oyakhilome explained this point by stating that not all men of God who are spoke of in the Holy Bible do not always have wives.
