A man and a woman are not equal in marriage, according to Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.
The General Overseer of Christ Embassy made the statement in a recent sermon. He said marriages failed these days because women thought they were equal to men.
Oyakhilome is himself single, after recently finalizing his divorce from Anita Obhodaghe.
Oyakhilome used the bible to support his sermon, saying that the woman is supposed to submit to the man.
Oyakhilome – No equality in marriage
He said, “They believe they are equal partners. (But) ‘husband’ does not mean the male partner in a marriage, husband means master.
“The Bible says the man is the head of the woman (1 Corinthians 11:3) so when you marry him, you come under his authority. You are not authority sharers, even though you are both heirs to the kingdom of God.”
“God is not going to accept what you are doing because you are not functioning correctly. Why did God make the woman? If most women had fathers bold enough to talk to them, they would be very successful in their marriage and they would be very happy people.
“Most women have never been taught by their parents, their fathers particularly and that’s their biggest problem because they don’t know who a man is. They think he is another woman,” he said.
