Church members barred from discussing Okotie’s failed marriage

If you're a member of House Hold of God, you know this piece of information is correct. Members of Chris Okotie's church have been barred from discussing his failed marriage, either in secret or in the open. The members were warned advised that it is in the best interest of the church not to discuss Chris Okotie, Stephanie Henshaw or their failed marriage...saying something about 'getting rid of the finger that could lead them to hell.”

The warning came after some church members were approached by members of the press to talk about what could have led to the disintegration of the four year old marriage.

Some people are still talking sha! *cough*

they r just plain stupid! why wont people talk???
a supposed MOG in a failed marriage like twice? n u expect people to keep silence?
ds okotie has guts! d man is not a man of God and am not afraid to say it. how im de preach e own bible? or is it not the same bible that condemns divorce?
tmrw he wil say it was God that askt him to divorce em wives just as he said it was God that askt him to run for presidency and buy a white bmw x6.
i pity his gullible members. is it by speaking grammer??? mschewww!

I op okotie is not coming out 4 president ambition again bcos if u can't handle ur bedroom affair there is no way u can govern a state not to talk of d all country.
Wat amaze me is dat ppl still go there 2 worship..

The problem with Nigerians is that, they worship Pators more than they worship God. If not, what rubbish? Who are those that still attend this Church btw?
Personally, if I feel either Okotie can perform in bed or he is into rituals and occultic activities that the wives cant be part of.

Good we can discuss it on here. What example is he setting for his members. I remember the bible says you can only divorce a woman if she commits adultery. Let's hope pastor has read his bible up to that point. I judge not.

clearly the problem is with her

I pity the people who still attend this church . Clearly they dont read their bible and follow the bible prinicples. If they do they for don comot this church since

The pastor is a poor example of a leader , Then the new Mama of the church Stephanie left her second husband to marry Pastor Chris (husband no 3). What kind of message are they sending out . The bible doesnt support divorce and with that why did their marriage of two divorce people take place in 2008

Anonymous said...

****cough cough *** in 2008
Pastor Okotie = Divorced once
Stephanie Henshaw = Divorced twice

Now they both want to upgrade their divorce status by one additional ............. na wah oo

How can the church have married them , isnt the first wife recorgnised so technically he doesnt have a failed marriage as it should not have been a marriage in the first place.

Pastor = Divorced twice
Stephanie Henshaw = Divorced three times . *** Case Closed *** my Lips are now sealed

It is rather sad, I was so sure these two with both make it .
They were both married to other people before and I was sure they both have experience behind them and have maturity to handle marriage and its challenges.

I am surprised it has come to this , I hope this ends like Benny Hinns Marriage that came back to reconciliation . I trust we will hear happy ending with Pastor Kris and Stephanie ………

Anonymous said...

hmmmmm, something was definitely wrong here . My question is Was The foundation based on God’s teaching ???? . I believe the Bible clearly states that a spouse is NOT to re-marry if the other is still alive only when the person as passed away is ONLY then, one is free to remarry...

when they both married in 2008, both of the couple ex-spouses are still alive and kicking...Pastor isn’t that making mockery of Christianity. I hope the church members ask him that question or they need to find another church FAST

A Man, irregardless of your 'pre', 'in' or 'post' marital status considering marrying a beauti-bomb who has 3 kids from two previous marriages is some kind of suicide hugging activity. Why is this so, well, from my own understanding, the 3 kids; no matter how old or how young they are can at anytime barge into your house and spoil your fun, that is if the kids are not even leaving and eating your food. Also those two other blokes/jokers? they won't let you rest, 'i want to see my kid' 'is my daughter inside your house? ''hey madman! don't you ever touch my daughter' 'hey, I here you snicked into my son's room? 'hope you are enjoying my rubbish' Inside your own house you will be facing all sort of restrictions, its madness! so guys, a true widow? hmm, yes! that's ok! atlest there will be no strange man knocking on your door and the kids must quickly decide to have you as their father or else! divocee with kids is madness and in all fareness the same goes for men, a divoced man with kids from one or more women can yield the same results. fbl

Who the hell is this chris okotie that he feels that he can tell other adults what to talk about. He can go and jump into the Niger river with his ex-wife. What a big dummy! Next time, he decides to take a wife, he will focus on the total package of what makes a suitable wife instead of just focusing on light skin and long-weave. As for her, she will focus on the total package as well instead of focusing on wealth and position. Two idiots if you ask me.

@woman of virtue and anyone who supports their pastors blindly and talks the "judge not" nonsense... usually most of u do not know ur bible, how can you accept such nonsense that is contrary to scripture and all u can say is judge not?! ... even the bible says in 1 John 4:1 "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world" ... in simple terms, question everything u see or hear, to see whether it is of God... following ur pastor will not lead you to heaven, bcos one claims to be a pastor doesnt mean ones actions are right... nowadays pastors are the ones committing the biggest sins and getting away with it cos no one wants to question them, its a bit like politicians who think they have a right over the nations wealth and power, only that in this case God will surely bring order to His house and will judge in righteousness.

The flamboyant preacher and three times presidential candidate of FRESH Democratic Party was alleged to have announced during last Sunday Church service, “Stephanie and I are separated without any further explanation.”

Although, many are no longer surprise about broken marriage of top celebrities, as it has become rampant nowadays, Pastor Chris failed second marriage is more interesting. It would be recall that his marriage to Stephanie, a mother of three from different men generated a lot of controversy with many people saying he should not have married in accordance with biblical principle but he quickly debunked such talks, saying that his critics do not understand the word of God.

However, for those who might be wondering why the marriage crashed like badly arranged pack of cards, a reliable source squealed that Stephanie is been alleged of having spiritual problems which Pastor Chris could no longer cope with.

As the alleged spiritual problems become mysteries to be unravelled, Stephanie is said to have moved back to Marwa Gardens, where she lived before the marriage. “She did not pack out completely because her siblings and children stayed behind when she got married to Pastor Chris,” said an insider.

“They dated for 10 years and married for four years, is it now that he’s aware of her spiritual problems? There is more to that, and probably because she could not give him a child after four years of marriage,” another source said.

Anonymous said...

Why did it take you so long to re-marry?
(Pauses) My life is a catalogue of divine situations that are predicated on the plans of Almighty God for Nigeria and for the Body of Christ in Nigeria; so I’m not like most people who do what they want whenever they want. I have to do what I am told to do when I’m told to do it because I am a man under authority and so it’s part of the divine equation.

When did you and Tina separate?
1998.

You’ve been romantically linked, by a couple of magazine, to various women and none eventually made it to the altar with you. What’s the attraction for Stephanie?
First and foremost, the tabloids do not determine what is going on in my life. What people perceive, you know, my public personae, many times create the wrong impression but marriage is a walk and not a work and the Bible says two cannot walk together, that is, take the same steps except there is agreement.

And for Stephanie and I, the first agreement is with God and the second is between the two of is. So I believe that she is the one the Lord has always set aside for me and it was just a matter of time for me to discover that reality.

How long have you courted?
Effectively, about seven years. I’ve known her for 19 years.

Really?
Yes, I’ve known her for 19 years, but we became close and began to walk closer from about 1999.

If you were to describe her in a short sentence, what would you say?
She is the embodiment of the epitome of beauty and spirituality.

If I should ask her attraction to you, what would she probably say?
She would tell you that Pastor Chris is a God-fearing man and is very kind and generous.

How did you propose to her?
Will you marry me? I would like to marry you.

Was it over a candle-lit dinner or on a highway?
Well, it’s not a one-time thing because I’ve been asking her to marry me for a long time and she wouldn’t accept my proposal until not too long ago. I thank God for that.

When she did not, what was her until reason?
She was not particularly certain whether it was what God wanted for her. She knew I cared a great deal about her but she didn’t want me to marry her just because I loved her. She wanted me to marry her only if the Lord accedes to it. So I had a situation where I had to get the Lord to persuade her that He is a part of this arrangement.

How did you do it? Did you bribe God? Can God be bribed? (General laughter).
I work for Him and as I said, my life is a catalogue of ordinations and He didn’t speak until He was ready to speak and you cannot coax God to say anything when He doesn’t want to say it or do anything when He doesn’t want to do it. I think at the right time, He made it abundantly clear to her. He had told me from the beginning but she wanted Him to speak to her directly and He did.

How old is she?
She’s 38.

And how old are you now?
Fifty.

Anonymous said...

What’s her background, as per discipline?
Let me just talk about her generally so that it sums that up. You know that she is the daughter of the Henshaw family. Her grand mum, who was wife to one of the previous Obongs of Calabar, brought her up in the palace. And she attended her school there, then IMT, Enugu. That’s basically it. Right now, she’s attending the university of the conjugal relationship, trying to acquire the information that is necessary or that will augment or augur well for domestic stability and equilibrium and that is the tutelage that she has been sitting under for a while.

Has she been married before?
(Pause) Yes!

With kids?
Yes, she has three children.
You are like a shepherd who has decided to take from among your flock. What feeling does this decision give you? Is it a case of Okotie and Stephanie the beloved as in Jesus and John the beloved?
(Laughter) well, she’s been my friend as I said, for 19 years. When I met her, she was just a teenager and love is a positive force for good and I guess that a lot of times, people do not really appreciate what love is but let me tell you something about love. When Jesus was on the cross, a Roman soldier pierced his side and out came two elements: water and blood indicating to us that there are two dimensions to a man’s life.

There is the water dimension and there is the blood dimension. Water is transparent, something you can see through. Blood is not; it is thicker than water. In the life of a man, there are two dimensions. People who are close to him: his parents or even his friends, they know about his water dimension. There are things you can observe, but his blood dimensions are things that are revealed. A lot of people know about Jesus. They hear His name.

They know He is a healer. They know He was from Jerusalem, but the mystery of what makes Him, only the church knows. So, we in the church know both His blood dimensions and His water dimensions, but the world only knows His water dimensions.

Stephanie knows both my water and my blood dimensions because she is the closest person to me on earth today and through experience and time, I’ve been able to reveal things about myself to her. That is why it was difficult for her to say yes because she has come to appreciate my spiritual responsibility and as a friend; she doesn’t want me to make a mistake in the side of God, which further endears her to me so in that context, she’s the only person I can marry.

You are rated among the few debonair pastors in Nigeria. How did you cope with such a status without being trapped by any woman for so long?
I think that is wisdom. The word of God creates the well of understanding and wisdom for the believer and particularly, the teacher of the word of God and the grace of God is the divine ennoblement that keeps us and establishes the will of God for our lives. I can only tell you that God has been very merciful to me and has been very gracious to me. And because he had already set aside a particular woman for me, knowing my own particular reeds and my peculiar needs, she was able to get us to navigate the convulsions of the man-woman relationship, the labyrinths of his complexities to such a place where I was able to recognize the particular woman that God has put for me and come to love her dearly. So, bottomline has been the grace of God.

You’ve chosen a wife from the Efik stock. Were you trapped by the legendary Calabar dishes or what?
(Prolonged laughter) All men love because the Bible teaches us that men love food and there is no doubt about it that many will be influenced by the expertise in that department of any woman. But no, that’s not it. You know, when people talk in the world, people say they have a soulmate, trying to define a certain soulish connectivity, but Stephanie is not a soulmate to me. She is a wombmate. That is like the matrix because the word in the New
That is the way I see her. I feel that both of us were conceived in the womb of divine destiny and
