Bitterness From The Pulpit As Chris Okotie Goes Ballistic On Ex-Wife During Church Service

He is supposed to be a good example to members of his congregation especially the married ones but on two separate occasions, he has failed to show leadership by example; a classic example of do what I say but don’t do what I do.

So it came as a surprise to many on Sunday August 12, 2012 inside the House Hold of God Church Lagos, when during a sermon cerebral pastor and former presidential candidate Chris Okotie, threw caution to the wind and launched into a tirade against his estranged wife, Stephanie Henshaw.

According to members of his congregation who sat and listened to the sermon during that service, they’d never seen or heard Pastor Okotie talk about his wife in that manner before as he sounded like a wounded Lion; comparing his wife (at least they’re not yet legally divorced as far as we know) to the bibilical Jezebel.

When The Going Was Good… Pastor Chris Okotie and Stephanie

Justifying his verbal onslaught, he reportedly said due to what he suffered in her hands, he was free to pass judgement on her. Going further, he foreclosed taking her back and gave her the go-ahead to speak to international news channels about him; he was past caring.

In related developments, Pastor Okotie is also reported to have retrieved the two (a Mercedes Benz S Class & BMW X6) exotic cars he bought for his estranged wife for the period of their marriage which lasted just four years and without an issue.
Is this how a marriage is supposed to end? What happened to the marital vows of “for better, for worse till death do us part”?

  1. The fact that some1 is good with English doesn’t make him a worthy speaker for God. This self made man of God (God forbid) has two failed marriages *smh*. He also failed twice contesting to be president of Nigeria, saying he heard from God. Are Nigerians so brainwashed with religion that they can’t tell right from wrong. Pick up the bible and read please and figure out who a man of God is. God have mercy on us all but Chris Okotie is an adulterer, liar and a failure.

  4. The word of God will surely come to past,that judgement will start. From church of God, sycophants are still running after this type of self acclaimed man of God looking miracles.

  8. True Christians shouldnt be suprised to see such things taking place in the churches of christendom. The lifestyle of these so-called men of God isnt it enough to convince decerning people that these are false religion and the anti-christ that our Lord Jesus Christ prophecied for the last days? Not until honest hearted people get out from false religion, they too will be swept away when the almighty will bring a final destruction on them. A word is enough for the wise.

  9. Was in Church on the 1st of August, 2012 and the man did not utter a word about Sister Stephanie. Infact, since the separation, he has not said a word about her in Church.

  10. Phillip can u briefly share wt us wot the attraction is wt worshiping in his church out of all the churches in Lagos …..have u given a second tot to where your tithe is channelled and the souls it would have saved, the Jezebel issue is just one of his many exhibits of an unchristlike behaviour …so uttering a word or not uttering a word does not change the fact that something is fundamentally wrong….the signs are clearly stated in the Bible.

  11. Wots most pathetic is dat he is just so blinded to see beyond his nose,wot are the roles of the Pentecostal union? tot one of them was to regulate and check ethics of the pentecostal body including their respective leaders.Please people post on the household website our comments may contribute to his deliverance. God bless u all

  12. Phillip get your facts right! It happened August 12 not August 1! now you understand what we mean when we say only ignorant people attend his church….it all starts with processing and assimilating info correctly ….the reason you’re stock there in his church…ignorance! You were obviously not in church August 12…. Roaming from one church to another! God help us! You’re spot on Chinonso n Chika

  13. it is unbelievable but if that is true why collecting those cars he bought for her again. Pastor chris okotie, please, be serious with your God because a lot of people are following you.

  14. Chris okotie I’ve always seen you as a fake/businessman pastor,now your opening your dirty smelling mouth to speak about your ex wife in your fake congregation,I pity the remaining members that are still listening to all your lies,if you can not run your two past marriages before,then you’re not fit to stand on that alter anymore.I learnt you’ve collected the two cars you bought for her from the money you collected from the offerings and tithe,what a shame,you deceived your members twice that God said you will be president of nigeria,we are still waitin for dat to happen,now that you’ve collected the cars,how do you return all the random sex you had with her,wayo pastor.

  15. no wonda sm one told my pastor dat he is no longer attendin church dat he has startd his church in his house.time ill com,dat people ill decid to stay at home instld of going to places were issues dat ill make one to dout if truely there is heaven or hell.God hv mercy on those who said u call them to lead us.
