Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy has come under attack over a message on submission in marriages.
In a viral sermon by the acclaimed man of God, Pastor Chris said a husband should be regarded as a ‘Master’. Therefore women should not oppose their husbands.
The Cleric further warned women against acting as a mother to their husbands, adding that a woman that dictates to her husband creates division.
Pastor Chris stressed that women were not in God’s original plan of creation but were just created for men.
Pastor Chris said: “No husband wants another mother, he has had one all his life, a husband does not mean the male partner in marriage but your master and should be respected. When you marry a man, you come under his authority.
“God made the Woman because of the Man. Your secret in marriage is your obedience, listening to your husband and doing those things that please him not opposing him.
“When you take the role of his mother, sister, what happens is he starts seeing you differently. A man loves the one he serves [God] and the one that helps him, he fights the one that is at the level with him.
“If most women had their fathers talk to them in their marriage, they would be very successful in their marriages, that’s their biggest problem they don’t know who a man is they think he is another woman.
“Women not in God’s original idea, he made women because of man.”
"No husband wants another mother. Get it now!"

However, some Nigerians took to their social media pages criticising the Pastor’s message.
Y’all should stop being vile towards Pastor Chris and read your bible. Personally, I don’t think feminism and the Bible can work hand in hand. If I’m ever to pick, it’s the word of God all the way.
