Divorce Saga: Pastor Chris Oyakhilome tells church members to pray for his wife

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and wife

Founder of the Believers' Love World Incorporated, popularly known as Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has urged members of his congregation to pray for his estranged wife, Anita.

Pastor Oyakhilome has also denied allegations of adultery reportedly levelled against him by her, he described them as "frivolous charges" lamenting that the media had been writing all sorts of "stupid things" about him and his marriage.

Noting that Jesus Christ was also accused of different allegations during his lifetime, He asked Nigerians to refrain from unfairly criticising him.

Oyakhilome who appeared visibly disturbed during his first few minutes on stage while giving a sermon in his church on Sunday, acknowledged that divorce was unbiblical but suggested he could consider the option should his wife insist on it.

"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 said.
