Founder of Believers Love World Ministry aka Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has finally spoken on the divorce suit filed against him by his wife after days of silence on the issue.

According to the Daily Post, Oyakhilome
described the allegations levelled against him as
“crazy” and “stupid” and urged his church
members to pray for his estranged wife while
speaking on Sunday evening during the monthly
global communion service of the church.
Oyakhilome, who appeared visibly disturbed
during his first few minutes on stage,
acknowledged that divorce is un-Biblical but
suggested he could consider the option should
his wife insist on it.
“I heard that some media houses– especially in
Nigeria, are writing some things against me. All
sorts of frivolous charges, that’s crazy.
“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 thing 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’.

“That is the only kind of thing you find about a
man of God when he misses the message of
God or he acts beyond what God said. But a man
of God settles himself in the fight against the
world… like those writing those stupid things
about me, that I did this and I did that.

“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”.

He recalled that Jesus passed through similar
travails and eventually overcame.
He said that although so many people were
making mockery of him, he would remain
steadfast and not lose focus.
“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” , he added.
At this point, one of the female pastors sought to
know why the names of wives of the men of God
were not found in the Bible.

Oyakhilome’s response was that she should ask
God whenever she finds him.
‘“Why? You ask God when you find him. Ask God
when you find him”, he exclaimed.
“So, they are little things; don’t try to make
something big out of them. So when journeying,
doing the things that God called us to do,
Christians should not have a divorce; it shouldn’t
be, but you see, that doesn’t mean a Christian
may not take the step.

“They may do it but they have to make things
right and we shouldn’t take one another to court.
But when it happens, not that we don’t just want
to go, it means someone is taking us there.

“That’s a problem, but be wise and stay focused
in the word of God and don’t let those who want
to feast on things like this, including Christians…
“There are Christians who like things like this;
they want to make something big out of this:

‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, we said it’. You said what?
Judge nothing before the time. Be wise. Glory to

“So we are not working in sin and living in sin
and hoping that we can mix sin and
righteousness together. We are the
manifestation of his righteousness. We walk in
that light only, and that’s the way it’s gonna be”.

In April 2014, Anita Oyakhilome filed for divorce
at Central Family Court, High Holborn, London,
UK, citing her husband’s “unreasonable
behaviour” and inappropriate relationships with
members of staff, a euphemism for “adultery”.

The couple have meanwhile decided to share
custody of their children. Sharon, the eldest,
prefers Pastor Chris, while Charlene is presently
with Anita.
