Speaking with a daily newspaper reporter recently, Catholic Archbishop Emeritus of Lagos, Anthony Cardinal Okogie, said the drama going on between Pastors Chris and Anita Oyakhilome is disturbing. He said when pastors refuse to honour the vows they took at the altar of God, what do they expect from the ordinary members of their congregation?

“When the going was good, they took vows on the altar of God to stay together in sickness and in health, until death do them part. They promise to make one another faithful partner in the presence of God, their family and friends and vow to be each other’s faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as well as in sorrow. (with their separation ) It shows that they cannot live by what they preach. The Bible says: ‘What God has joined together, let no man put asunder.’ So why are they putting asunder what the good Lord has joined together if they are men of God as they claim?”
Okojie said

Asked what the development portrays for the Church of God, the cardinal replied with a question

“What Church are you talking about?. It is not good. Are they true pastors? Good shepherds of the Lord are expected to do everything to shepherd their flock including their spouses even when they err. If God forgave us in spite of our filth, why can any man who is truly called pastor not forgive any malfeasance?”

Okogie blamed the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC, which registers every organization which goes about deceiving people in the name of church, noting that there are several “useless” institutions that have been registered churches which are currently painting the Church of God in bad light.

Hmmm! Absolutely correct.  So people will still attend his church? A divorcee pastor. Humans worship men/women of God now more than God.

 once i am a pastor my wife has to be ordained a pastor as well,,,if to say the wife were not a pastor , the case could have been treated as a believer and an unbeliever  but now that the wife is also a pastor what do we do?  many are called but few are chosen
