Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s Theory of Masturbation, Smoking and Alcoholism

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is the owner of Believers Love World Fellowship which metamorphosed into Christ Embassy International Ministries.

This Church has a regular membership of over 3 million in Nigeria alone and fans of over ten million people who belong to other denominations but see Pastor Chris as their alternative pastor.

Inadvertently Pastor Chris Oyakhilome controls over twelve million people in Nigeria especially the youth and middle aged.

His telecast is still the most viewed among Nigerian Christians including Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Methodists and Pentecostal brethren.

This Pastor recently stirred the hornets nest in the month of February 2012 when answering a question on how to overcome masturbation said thus masturbation in itself is not a sin against God.

Satan uses it in oppressing the mind and make them feel ineffective and inefficient in the sight of God. But once you understand that it got nothing to do with God, its about you and your own body¦ When people thought that his position was a slip of tongue, He defended it in another telecast weeks later and called it a habit which has nothing to do with God.

The same pastor weeks later added that alcoholism and smoking is not a sin, rather it is just a habit.

This theory of masturbation not being a sin is not biblical. Masturbation is a besetting sin. A besetting sin is a habit that sticks to someone as though it is normal.

A sin that has become a habit is called a besetting sin. Some people call it entangling sin because it entangles a person, thereby making escape difficult.

In Hebrew Chapter 12 verse 1-2 the scripture says that wherefore seeing we are also compassed with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and sin which easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith In Nigeria now, corruption has become a besetting sin, our religious leaders encourage it and release anointing for the corrupt Congregationalist to escape the arms of the law.

However, this does not remove the fact that corruption is evil in the sight of God.

Smoking of Cigarettes, Indian Hemps, Cocaine, Marijuana or whatever are besetting sins. They are normalised anomalies. Masturbation is one of them. In Nigeria today, fornication has become so rampant that it has a besetting sin.

People now discuss their sexual escapades with different people as a status symbol.

The Bible has a standard. In Matthew Chapter 5 verse 8 Jesus Christ said that but I tell you that whosoever looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

This implies that sin starts from the heart. Masturbation definitely involves constant lustful imaginations which the victim indulges in as a means of vitiating sexual pressures.

Students of demonology have discovered that those sexual images which follow masturbation are actually pictures from the marine world juxtaposed on the persons sub-conscious and he begins to imagine some sexy looking man or woman.

Some persons get initiated into the company of a spirit husband or wife after orgies of masturbation. In addition, a masturbator will definitely get tired of the self indulgence and would want to experiment with actual sex, leading to fornication or adultery.

Smoking of cigarettes has become a fanciful habit which a lot of persons want to break away from without success.

The late minister of health Professor Olukoye Ransome Kuti said that he quit decades of smoking the day he was appointed as Minister of Health by Ibrahim Babangida in 1985. All his previous attempts to quit the bad habit failed until he made a resolution that as the chief health officer of Nigeria he cannot be a bad example, which was how he secured his freedom.

If those referred to as unbelievers want to quit smoking, how can a Born Again Christian justify feeding on what pagans, atheists and animists are struggling to quit.

The producers and hawkers of cigarettes warn that the substance is dangerous to health.

Alcoholism is an intoxicant which persons use to feel good and fight depression.

A lot of sicknesses are directly related to it and the manufacturers will always warn that it is not for those below the age of eighteen. A lot of family breadwinners have expended all their live savings on alcohol while the wife and children are left unattended to.

Therefore for a pastor who directly influences over three million persons in Nigeria and indirectly influences another twelve million fans that belong to other churches to encourage these habits, the end has really come.

The implications of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s open cheque is that many young men and women running into millions will join the league of masturbators, fornicators, adulterers, smokers of cigarettes, Indian hemp, cocaine and consumers of different brands of alcohol; Whisky, Schnapps, Sapele Water,Kaik ai, Akpuru-achai etc. In these trying seasons for Nigeria and Africa, this pastor has led his congregation and that of others astray.

Apostle Paul said in Galatians Chapter 1 verse 8-9 says but even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! As we have already said now I say again: if anyone is preaching a gospel other than the one you have accepted, let that one be under God’s curse Influential pastors are now blessing masturbation, drunkenness and smoking. Soon others will bless watching pornographic materials, same-sex marriage and marriage to pythons, cobras, dogs, baboons and horses.

Later they will begin to sanction occultism, human sacrifice, flying in the night and astral projections in the church.

In the height of it they will remove Christ as the centre piece and replace him with the man of sin, the Antichrist, who will exalt himself as God in the temple of God as illustrated in 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2, Verse 3-8. This appearance of the man of sin will precede the second coming of Jesus Christ.

The level of hero worship that Christian faithful give their leaders is a dress rehearsal of the level of worship the antichrist will receive in the church when he finally arrives.

Replacing the views of God as outlined in the scripture with the views of the Senior Pastor or Archbishop who is prone to mistakes and fallibility could lead a sincere faithful to hell fire while the errant pastor might repent at the last moment and escape to heaven.

This constant replacement of scriptural truth with the doctrines of men is as old as Christianity but somehow the Church have always found its way back to the path. The early church was moving in the right direction, preserving the faith the Apostles until Emperor Constantine and Co-Emperor Lucinius passed the Edict of Milan in 313 which proclaimed religious tolerance for all religions in Roman Empire, signaling the end of the era of brutal persecution of the church.

Constantine the Great became a Christian and his conversion made Christianity fashionable and a lot of pagan converts clung to all manners of practices and theories which formed part of their former religion.

These paganistic practices quenched the fire of the early church, leading to a lot of schisms, heresies and apostasies and eventually ushered in the period known as the dark ages of the Church.

The situation so much deteriorated that the church had to suppress the growing schisms with ecclesiastical proscriptions, anathema, imprisonment and in few cases execution. This schism was so intense that in 1378 a group of Italian Cardinals elected Urban VI as Pope while later in the same year another group of French Cardinals elected Clement VII as Pope who established his seat of papacy in Avigon, France. The two groups were excommunicating each other from the church.

The Papacy in the aftermath of the Protestant Reformation restored the rights of the laity to possess, read and translate the Bible.

Therefore the views of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome are a modern day replica of the gradual introduction of strange ideas in the early church which nearly suffocated the spiritual efficacy of the church.

The silence of the mainstream Pentecostal leadership towards this theory is dangerous. Our Christian leaders have suddenly lost their voices while a false doctrine is circulating among the church. Other matters are currently occupying their attention. Whether these ecclesiastical authorities condemned it or not is immaterial, what matters is the word of God.

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians Chapter 6 Verse 19-20 do you not know that your body is the temple of the holy spirit who is in you whom you have received from God, you are not your own: you were bought with a price, therefore honour God with your body.

1 Corinthians Chapter 6 Verse 18 say flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whosoever sins sexually, sins against their own body while Isaiah Chapter 5 Verse 11 says woe unto them that rise up early in the morning that they may follow strong drink, that continues until night that wine inflames them and verse 22 says woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink Therefore it is obvious that a Christian has a duty to honour God with his body and not to resign himself to habits injurious to the health of man and the laws of God.
These habits and besetting sins are part of why Jesus Christ came, to take away sins and give us power to overcome all these desires.

Power over self and sinful habits is more important to the Christian than acquisition of all manners of fame, female and finance but modern days Christianity have elevated prosperity to heights inconsistent with the scriptures.

If religious faithful cry unto God for deliverance from bad habits the way they fast and pray for political appointments, marital breakthrough and the death of all their enemies, these besetting sins and habits will leave them and get back to where it came from.

    Pst chris these ur gosple about masturbation,smoking and drinking of alcohol should b preach inside a quiet room 4 just u alone bc it is a one man show. Pls stop deceiving and encouraging congregation abt this sinful act. To b renown Pastor does not mean to preach false things 2 people.

  6. Deede Uche says:

    Well spoken, and thanks for standing out so objectively. I believe that the issue at hand is simply one of the cases of re-definition & re-interpretation of the Scriptures & orthodox doctrines into conventional gospels. This is one of the major strategies employed by PRIVATE CHURCH ENTREPRENEURS to appeal to the sentiments of the new age that seems to have gotten tired of the traditional faith & morality, thereby harvesting them as customers & followers of their private church firms. This one sounds this way bcs it appeared so publicly. But more weird & bizarre messages are preached everyday by these acclaimed ‘men of god’. With the freedom of worship & freedom of running private church enterprises, not much can be done beyond mere words to tackle the menace. But we shall keep talking for those who have ears to hear, while we leave the rest to God in whose name they claim to be preaching.

  7. tolu says:

    Either pst chris is d G.O of love-world or not is n’t d issue,d issue is dat many wolves have invaded d flock in sheep’s clothing…dis type of topic shldnt even be discus in our midst…let d gud shepherd come to our rescue o…Jesus pls intervene now o…

  13. obedibaba says:

    because he said these acts were not sin in the pure sense, did he encourage u to practice them? Because Jesus turned water to wine didn’t mean he encouraged people to go on a drinking spree. Pls don’t use a sentence to judge a man… U betta paste the fullness of what he said before criticizing…that’s how unbiased p’ple make their arguments.

  17. Bibi says:

    You have not said anything so special, wat Pst Chris is saying is dat ur mind is actually where dis sins start, maturation in itself is not a sin it’s d impure tots dat are d sins. However masturbating without impure tots is next to impossible, the problem is dat we have the same attitude dat d pharisees had (holier than thou)masturbating without impure tots is equivalent to eating ur favourite food in dat it brings you pleasure.

    • precious says:

      B4 an act is carried out, it mst hv bn conceived in d prsn’s mind, n as u rightly said, d thot of it(masturbatn) is a sin. Dis implies dat d act is also a sin, bcos b4 d act, comes d thot(which is a sin).

    • tomi says:

      Some ppl jst need to go bck to school, xpclly U.. Bibi. U lck Undrstndn and Ur skul housez a dead brain buddy. …So U mean, the Act is nt sin bt d Tot is.

  20. Ese Abamba says:

    This is absurd! Very bizarre!
    From wat Pst Chris said up der, he never said masturbation, alcoholism or smoking was encouraged. Go back and read again that God may give you understanding.

    All those vices are bad habits that millions of christians exhibit.
    He’s right,they may not have been mentioned or termed as sins in the bible, but a continuous indulgence in them could blind one from seeing the real thing(purity of heart and mind).

    • Otunba Sette says:

      Gudday. I dont knw what pple wants 2 turn internet 2? Why shld any serious minded person go on Net 2 conderm or castigate his fellow man? They av hidden agenda. Gudday.

  21. Gift says:

    Woa! This is clear enough 4all. A sin is a sin, no matter d justification. Thanks 4 ds exposure!

  22. John Christ says:

    Whosoever posted this here statement here is a confusionist because everything you are saying are contrary to his statement. I don’t have anything to tell you because what God did not call a sin. You human can not call it sin. If we want to be realitic about life. The wearing of clothes began because of sin. Adam sin make us wear clothes now and will you say we are committing sin because we are wearing the clothes. I can see that the reason alot of christains are suffering is because they are too concious of their sin. When we were still sinners, he came to die for us and how much more when he have come and die for our sin. Please read 1 john 2:1 (My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense–Jesus Christ, the Righteous One), If smoking can take someone to heal, there is no reason for jesus to die for us. If you watched the video clip of pastor chris regarding masturbation, He said what lead to the masturbation, that is what is sin, He said the person committed sin by his thought and his thought was were the sin was committed in masturbation. because sin is first committing in the heart before it is showed in the outward. Please broda and sister. Don’t be fool by hyprocrite who are trying to persecute men of God. It is written that persecution is one of the things every believer must face in this world.

  23. Evangelist Abel says:

    @ Wale, you too is also a member of the antichrist church. Whether he is the G.O or not that isn’t the issue at stake now. If I were you I would be considering on how to know the truth and run from such preacher who defend masturbation as not a sin. That it’s only an habit. This man is angel of the devil who has come in wolf in sheep clothing to distract people away from the truth. Read through very well you will find out that the publisher of this post have spoken like a man of God with biblically facts and proof. Stop worshipping human worship God only and learn to read your bible ask for the Spirit of God to give you understanding to discern the truth of God’s Word. Pastor Chris is no different from Charly boy and other guys who practise this act. Pastor I respect you well, pls, if you are having the problem of masturbation and do not know how to overcome it speak out to other Men of God for deliverance rather than changing God’s Word because you can’t be free if you die today with such sin. REPENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Otunba Sette says:

    Huuummm! What are we learn frm ds now? Its just lyk what I was reading on my fb wall “MADNESS” d story of a girl dat sends her nude pix 2 one Don Jazzzy…. My question now is why shld pple write or go on Net 2 conderm or castigate fellow humanbeing, I think there are beta options 2 rather than going on Net. 1- if U feel what d person has done or said is bad, U can luk 4 a way 2 get his or her attention 2 it, 2- if U must let pple knw of it, then d identity of such person shld b protected. Hweva ds idea shld b discouraged in all forms, riligiously n morally is bad. What do U want 2 get frm ds. May GOD help us.IJMN. Amen.

  25. adewumi says:

    the book of Galatians told us why we shouldn’t take alcohol because it a sin,many things,ok lets say pastor Chris now applauds masturbation,is it morally ok?societal wise,is it all right,even if they are driving us astray,let us think before we accept any strange doctrine

  26. jose says:

    writer one question i have for u is this,
    Do u live without sin??
    Before u start pointing fingers at me make sure ur hands are clean
    What u dont know dont criticize….b4 u guys came up with girls wearing trouser nd leaving their hair untied with scarf…yet he nutured u guys on d real concept of sin nd how God wants up to think,u guys quote him wrong using scriptional verses u guys dont understand.some later beleived because they saw wonderful miracles he performs nd d congregation he control nd his powerfull sermons that has changed lives and many more…some still dont…one thing i knw is that that is a message from God..dnt be dumb in the spirit cous if u are there is no way u can quote God…be activated!
    The phariees ,saducees and the high priest never beleived whatever jesus said or did because they dont have the grace,they taught they were doin the right thing but never knew they where in the wrong direction….beleive what u beleive the TRUTH will always stand out for it self!

  29. Abiye says:

    Cunning diatribe. The author is no different from the characters he describes. The idea of a sacrosanct mix between spirituality and morality confuses the statement, its premise and the arguments. I am no follower of Pastor Chris and if anything I have a personal aversion to his character but the veracity of his propositions cannot be ignored. You are quick to judge, suggesting that Alcoholism is a sin, Smoking is a sin, Masturbation is a sin and you base your argument on the idea of them being habits undermining control. Is Obesity then a sin? How about love? they are extremes in peculiar occurrences where one is unable to control their desire for food or to empathise and care for others. You can see that your premise and concluding statements are illogical.
    The fact is people like you institute fear, emotionalism and sensationalism into faith circles. The idea of ‘flying at night’; it is a crappy display of vision. Angels are supposedly flight capable beings, don’t they operate at night? does that make them demonic? please and please, I implore you to control your quasi-literacy impulses and open your mind to accept the truth. Smoking is not a sin, besetting or not. It is simply a bad habit that is harmful to human health. Alcohol has its merits, forget the lies about Jesus and non-alcoholic wine; research indicates that in those days, wine [low alcohol vol.] was the most common drink because it was readily accessible and cheaper compared to water. Paul admonished the addressee in one of his epistles to ‘take a little wine for his stomach sake’. Yes this may not amount to an addiction but importantly not every addiction is a sin. If I am addicted to waking up at 6am every morning, even against a doctor’s advice, does that make me a sinner/ or one who commits a sin? You argue against masturbation and claim that it leads to bla, bla, bla!!! Again, I ask, if the object of my masturbation is my wife, is that a sin? would you term that lust? The act remains the same but the [opportune] object may be different. And there are increasing research being put forward to explore the implications of masturbation both physically and emotionally. So I ask you, if your doctor told you that masturbating once a day, will help increase your sperm count and increase your chances of impregnating your wife after 15 years of marriage would you or would you not do it? I guess the overt response would be a no [supported by some rhetorical discourse] but I am very certain that the covert practice would be otherwise. MAN MUST REALISE THAT MORALITY IS A CREATION OF SOCIETY; IT’S CONTENT ARE NOT ABSOLUTE, NOT EVEN THE TAKING OF LIFE, An act to which the state lays claim, although the bible says “Thou shalt not kill”. Think before you share your opinion and when you do, remember, “We know in part” and nothing known to man is absolute.

  39. stanley clever says:

    This writer is one of the people the devil has used over the years to accuse brethren and distance them from God.at the end of it all he still quoted scriptures to support what Pastor Chris said. 1 Corinthians Chapter 6 Verse 18 say flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whosoever sins sexually, SINS AGAINST THIER OWN BODY while Isaiah Chapter 5 Verse 11 says woe unto them that rise up early in the morning that they may follow strong drink, that continues until night THAT WINE INFLAMES THEM.We all know that masturbation fornication etc are sins, a lot of people find themselves indulging in it, that includes this MR SIN FINDER: Matthew Chapter 5 verse 8 Jesus Christ said that but I tell you that whosoever looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Satan uses it in oppressing the mind and make them feel ineffective and inefficient in the sight of God. But once you understand that it got nothing to do with God, its about you and your own body¦In Hebrew Chapter 12 verse 1-2 the scripture says that wherefore seeing we are also compassed with so great a cloud of witnesses (THE WRITER INCLUSIVE),let us lay aside every weight, and sin which easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith

Do also!a man focused in the things of God kindness compassion, meekness and in being fisher of men will God honor!so when was d last time u preached Christ?

    by ur words, u shall be justified and by ur words, u shall be condemned. hw many souls have d words of ur mouth led 2 Christ and hw many have they led away frm Him? evryone must give acct of evry word he speaks-private or public. let’s be very careful nt 2 add to or remove frm d words of dis PERFECT BOOK of prophecy bcos d consequences as outlined are grave. dnt let anyone deceive u. if u r nt sure of d veracity of wat someone says, then go 2 God; He’s d Author of d Book. as His child, u have access 2 Him. dnt always live up to anoda person’s interpretatn. let’s watch wat we say. talk is cheap. Respect Men of God even wen they are truly wrong.

    These Issues should be based individual justification

    Please lets try and be practical ..!I think He(pastor) was technically right in his judgement on these issues about Alcholism,Smoking and Masturbation; but morally wrong in that moral justification proves that excessive engagement(abnormalies) would be detrimental: health- wise, since they use to say that too much of everything is bad! .I am totally against anybody that says that drinking or smoking is a sin.. It’s not justifiable… If you do… Then, anything one does in excess is a sin..! For instance: a habit of eating excess junk foods could b detrimental and could cause cancer or leads to obesity… and invariably wil reduced one’s life span. Technically its not a sin but morally it is. Being seen as a sin or not should be based on individual justification.

    The problem of this writer is that the person lacks understanding. The person should pray for understanding. Pastor Chris never said any of those things which this foolish writer has written. Pastor never encouraged anyone to get involve in any of those acts. Where the sin is committed is in what goes on the heart before the act, and what goes on in your heart after the act. People should go back and listen properly again to what Pastor Chris said, and stop all this wrong interpretations.

    Now i see, a lot of pipl lk Karl n d othrs ar completely out of mnds! Hw can pipl b dis confuzd, wen d truth is vry glarin! I see, dey’ve turnd into d devil’s advocates n no doubt ar out to brainwash common mnds into believin dis heresies. Hw wud any right-thnkin persn opn his mouth n say ‘masturbatn’, whc in any sense is a sin, is nw nt a sin until d motive or objekt of d act is defiling. Aprt fr sm medikl conditns dat a man wud b requird to cm wit a sampl of his semen to possibly run a semen’s analysis, at any oda tm, evr man on d act does it to primarily serve as a propensity to reducin his sexual pressures or fr d mere fun of it which in any case is a sin! Well, whl sm of diz devilish inspired thoughts might b soundin soothin to our selfish-seksual gratificatns, i can stil mak bold to say, though nt a perfikt man dat dis act of masturbatin in particular n in extntn to d odas, are purely sin eithr in their acts or in themselves, watevr! D wrd of God has nt changd n fr any rizn mere mortals perhaps fr their wealth or knwledge… sud nt frgt whre dey belong- d dust! N so, dey sud nt try to make cunnin wat’s nt God’s teachin n thnkin. U heresists repnt else u end ur eternity in d hades! God wil certainly judge evry blamphemy n or care-free statemnt frm all His accussers if nt repnt to turn to Him since His stil nign.

    Hmmmm….do not misinterpret d man of God or better still stick τ̅☺ ΰя̩̥̊ belief.

  53. Maybe we should go to the definition of a sin. What is a sin according to God, not according to human beings ?
