Catholics will go to hell, says Chris Okotie

All Catholics in the world will go to hell because they worship Satan and are led by an Anti-Christ Pope who is a friend to the devil, Nigeria’s controversial preacher and former presidential candidate, Chris Okotie, told his congregation on Sunday, leaving members bewildered.

Fifty-five year old Okotie, while preaching in his Household of God Church in Ikeja area of Lagos, western Nigeria, said the Catholic church is “a counterfeit church set up by Satan” and that Catholics “bow to idols and crucify Jesus every Sunday when they eat bread claiming they are eating Jesus’ body.”

“They are not Christians and have never been,” Okotie told a stunned congregation.

“They don’t know Jesus. They believe that when they eat bread on Sundays, they are eating the body of Jesus. It’s ritual,” Okotie said.

He said Pope Francis is an Anti-Christ who does the job of the devil and that time is fast approaching when the Catholic church will pledge allegiance to Satan.

“The pope is an Anti-Christ and the Catholic church will soon declare for Satan. This is the end of times,” Okotie erupted.

He advised members of his church to come to the rescue of Catholics and evangelise them.

This, he said, was not out of disrespect but out of respect for the word of God.

He said those who know the truth should bring it to those who do not know it in the Catholic Church.

Okotie said one of the Catholic most revered Popes, Pope John Paul 11, surrendered the Catholic Church to Mary, the earthly mother of Jesus Christ, instead of Jesus himself. He said even the current Pope Francis has also done same.

He said Catholics are not Christians and do not worship the same Christ that he preaches in his church, at least the one spoken about in the Bible.

Okotie said he did not write the Bible but it was clear to him that those in the Catholic church were lost and were heading to hell fire.

“They don’t believe in heaven. They believe in purgatory, the purgatory that they invented,” Okotie said.

“That church, the Catholic church has been there for Satan and at the right time, they will declare for Satan,”Okotie said.

Okotie who has been married twice and divorced also twice said a beauty pageant will take place in his church next Sunday to select the most beautiful woman in his church.

He also said his yearly “Grace programme” where he makes donations to charity organisations will also take place next Sunday.

The once rock star turned celebrity preacher and politician has been controversial for years.

He once said it was the devil who told him for the first time that he was going to be a preacher.

He also said Nigeria’s famous preacher Prophet T.B. Joshua is the son of the devil and his followers will go straight to hell.

In recent years, he has been saying that God has anointed him to be Nigeria’s president. That prophecy has not come to pass in two presidential elections that he participated in.

    The truth is that, this so called funky Pastor lacks what to preach to his people he is collecting money from to go into Politics and chase all things under the skirt.He lacks knowledge about the word of God as did not to any Bible College to qualify him a Pastor.His end will soon come for condemning and judging Christians.This a person who said he has repented after going on the street singing and glorifying Satan and he is still has not changed.

    Jugde not, that yea may not be jugded. For every idle word men speak will stand against them in jugdement. All these are obviously the signs of end time. Therefore friends know your own mind and live your own life

    God help Pastor Chis Okotie. Judge not so that u will equally not judge.

    @richay Edwards; you are ignorant of Christian history, if not you would not be following the conspiracy theory that the Vatican is the seat of Satan. Read the Bible very well. The Gates of Hell can never prevail against the Church of Christ… Satan has deceived so many that they turn on the truth and have taken lies as the gospel truth.

  6. Ehison

    Okochi from your comment, you an Adventist. Please read about your history… The Adventist came as a result of misunderstanding of the scripture and failed end of the world prophesy. The Catholic Church did not change the Sabbat. The Saturday Sabbat was for the Jews… Followers of Christ began to worship on Sunday as a result of the day Christ resurrected… The Day of the Lord. Search your Bible, my friend. If you claim to follow Christ, would practice the Jewish law or the Christian Law?

    He revealed it. It jst took an hour n 30mins of my sleep 4 him 2reveal dis. “D Mark of d beast” 666 z real.
    His coming is very near Gods’ pple (Jesus Christ,yea d King of al Kings).Some of us may actually feel we re doing d RT tins as christains.God isn’t hapie wit most of us cos we fail 2carryout our duties wich z winnin souls 2 him through spreadin nd teachin of d Gospel. Its so evident and clear dat our main n major purpose on earth is 2 serve him and dyt we must carryout deligently. Wot z ur own reason of not wantin 2 carryout ur own duty on earth? Is it our addiction 2sin? Is it dyt long term project? Our family?our job? dat marriage we dream of ?, wealth?or our political aspirations?,academic qualifications? Wot are we waiting for?Yes, I do knw al dese r neccesities bt we shldnt 4get dyt dere z a deeper purpose 4our existence,d call 2serve.He is angry dat most of us are being carried away wit d pleasures of dis world,our needs,our strong desire 4power,fame,wealth,tryin 2meet up wit d latest trends in d world.Wot wuld b our own reason n excuse 2 d father if he cals 4our life 2dy?I have seen n heard of different tragic stories in life in d past n present e.g how newly married couples got killed either by accident or by assassins, how yung ladies/yung men jst got married n nt long dey didn’t live 2enjoy deir long awaited marriage,I v heard of a thousand n 1 stories of how ladies die during d period of conception,how some1 jst got blessed with his 1st job he had lnged prayed 4 only 2die 2wks after being employed.Yea! God forbid bt dis r happenin 2humans lik u and I.I culd go on and on wit so many examples of course I knw u can list dem al.But I tell u don’t let ur needs/challenges occupy d place of God in ur life neither shuld dyt sin too. For Matt 6:33 says – But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and al dese things will be provided for you.I bet u time is no longer on our side.People r dying crazily dese dayz d yung/Old,corpers n children dyin mysteriously and so many crazy tins dt we all hear abt evrydy.Bt d earlier we knw n begin 2secure our place d beta it z 4 our souls.Remember he who bears d mark of d beast (666) has no place in d kingdom of God so also it is 4 d soul dyt dies witout christ. Prepare 4his 2nd coming.Repent 4d kingdom of Gud is at hand.Rev.12: 7-12,Rev.14 9-12. Peace!! Gud day! Let’s Act nau!

  8. Well i’m a catholic and i’m not goin’ to hell, that’s all i care…every sinner be you a catholic or not will go to hell if u do not turn back to God and ask for his mercy, that’s the word of God. Evryone knows what they are involved with and God will judge according to what you sincerely know



  10. Shelop

    My dear, that was very good, you have spoken well, that which I have in mind to say. Judgement is for God en not for man.

  11. Martin

    I want to state emphatically that it is very unfortunte that “Pastor” Chris Okotie is causing this kind of Controversy on the basis of Mary the Mother of JESUS; and also the Mother of the Church, weather U like it or not.
    1. For the benefit of ALL; Catholics do not Worship Mary. We Honour Her! Come to think of it. Don’t U honour and respect the wife of your G.O. or Man of GOD? Talk less Mother of JESUS. John the beloved Apostle was not Mary’s Child BUT on the Cross, one of the last demands of JESUS was “Dear morher, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.(Jn.19:26-27).
    2. Filled with the Spirit of GOD (Not of man) Mary Prophesied that “From NOW ON ALL GENERATIONS WILL CALL ME BLESSED,…” (Lk.1:48). That is all generaations will honour Her.
    Which other Man/Woman has it been Said of that ALL Generation will call Blessed? GOD had prepared Her for this Special Purpose, to be the Mother of the SAVIOUR; not by man but by the Spirit of GOD.
    3. For the Holy Communion; JESUS Said,”…Do this in Memory of me…” And U call it a satanic ritual?
    4. May GOD have mercy on you… Just as sombody said earlier, I will repeat to U the Words of JESUS; the Authority HE gave to HIS CHURCH:
    *** “I tell U that U are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hell will not overcome it. I will give U the Keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever U bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever U loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”(Mt.16:18-19)

  12. nsikak umoh

    Why should people dignify okotie by joining issues with him. Am not a catholic but its unfortunate pastor (sic) chris with big grammar does not understand the bible. He had known all those who will not go to heaven except himself and his members. He has taken up the work of God to judge others meaning that God will do nothing at the last day. Anyway we know him as a member of PMAN a.k.a pastor chris

  13. bb

    What are you saying? See guy, it depends on day you start counting the week either sunday or monday and stop speaking jazz.nonsense! Research before you spill your gum. When Jesus arose from death, the Bible says the first day of the week…monday or was it sunday? Think, research and talk. It was during the time of moses thatn sunday was used to be the first day of the week i supposed. But Christ has come and the day changes and not by your CATHOLIC crusaders!

    God Is still in charge

  15. Mattew chapter 24:24
    For false christs and prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive,if possible,even the elect….

    Luke 22:21
    But behold,the hand of my betrayer is with me on the table.

    Finally…..Luke 22:19
    And he took bread,gave thanks and broke it,and gave it to them,saying “This is my body which is given for you:do this in remembrance of me.”

    Mattew 23:25
    Woe to you,scribes and pharisee,hypocrites! For you cleanse the out-side of the cup and dish,but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence.

    Revelation 22:18-19

    Jesus christ of nazareth

  16. ayotunde

    The only way to God is through Jesus. no other way

  17. ayotunde

    Mary does not lead you to Jesus. All you need is Jesus, no other person or way will do.

  18. ayotunde

    Ask her to show you the truth and she will! How on earth will I a christian ask Mary for the truth, she is blessed, that’s true, but your statement shows where the problem lies, it’s all about Jesus christ, only Jesus can show you the truth not Mary, Jesus is the way the truth and the life, Mary was truely blessed, but was a human being like you and I.Live only for Jesus Christ.

    What’s always wrong with this chris okotie

  20. Gerard Onochie

    Chris Okotie is not a man any serious minded person will take seriously. Any buffoon can wake up one day in their warped mindset to get rich quickly and say God told them in a vision to become a pastor and sadly MOST Nigerians in their weak and demented mindset like lost sheep will follow looking for what is not looking for them. Anyone who thinks the Catholic Church is evil is under the influence of the Devil. Matthew 16:18 – “And I say to you, that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it. ” The definitive word being church not churches. So anyone who disputes the doctrine of the catholic church is indirectly saying Jesus Christ was wrong and even worse that God made a mistake. God IS ALWAYS RIGHT. I hope one day before it is too late Chris Okotie can repent. We should all be careful that the same PRIDE that made the devil fall from grace does not consume us.

    When you go into a Catholic Church
    and you see a big, splendid statue of
    Mary with flowers in front of it, a bank
    of candles lit before it and an old
    woman kneeling down, fervently
    praying her rosary it would seem to be
    what it looks like: the woman is
    worshipping a statue of Mary. But if you
    ask the old woman if she is
    worshipping Mary she’d say,
    “Whataryatalkinabout?, I’m praying
    the rosary.” So what is going on? First we
    have to
    define “worship”. From time
    immemorial worship was identified
    with a particular action: the action of
    sacrifice. Pagans worshipped their
    gods by making sacrifices to them. The
    Jews worshipped by making sacrifice
    to Jahweh. The reason we moderns get
    about worship is that we’ve forgotten
    the principle of sacrifice so we don’t
    really know what worship is all about. This
    is understandable from
    Protestants because they got worried
    about the sacrifice thing 500 years
    ago and threw it out. What is most
    depressing is that most Catholics also
    don’t understand the “sacrifice is
    worship” idea either. They’ve been
    told the Mass is all about “the family of
    God gathering around the table of
    fellowship to increase their mutual self
    esteem and discuss peace and justice
    issues.” Because of this nonsense the
    of Catholics don’t have a
    clue what the sacrifice business is all
    about, and therefore they don’t know
    what worship is supposed to be about
    either. Like the neo-Prots that they are
    they have come to think that worship
    is all about hearing a sermon, singing
    some songs and praying. Now we’re
    getting down to the reason
    why Protestants think Catholics
    worship Mary. They think worship and
    prayer are the same thing. Therefore, if
    you are praying to Mary you must be
    worshipping Mary. Well, the Catholic
    faith has been
    around for a long time, and believe it
    or not, these questions have been asked
    before, and the Catholics have
    the answer. It goes like this: there are
    three categories of respect due in the
    realm of worship. They go by specific
    names: Latria, Dulia and Hyperdulia.
    Latria is worship. It is the worship that is
    due only to God. This worship
    consists of offering God our lives, our
    souls, our minds and our bodies as a
    living sacrifice (Romans. 12. 1-2) We
    do this pre-eminently through the
    sacrifice of the Mass. Dulia is not worship.
    It is honor. We
    honor anyone who is eminent and
    accomplished. We honor them for their
    brains, their discipline, their wit, their
    achievement. We honor our parents
    and grandparents because we owe them
    that. We honor our loved ones.
    Part of this honor is that we ask them
    for things. We come to them with our
    needs. We look up to them. We respect
    them. They are our role models and
    mentors. We have a relationship to them
    of subservient honor. They are
    awesome to us. Dulia is also what we
    give to the saints and angels. We give
    them the honor that is due to them. As
    part of this we have a relationship with
    them. We ask them for things. This is
    called “praying to the saints.”
    Hyperdulia is the honor we give to the
    Virgin Mary. We give her the highest
    honor because she is unique amongst
    all God’s creation. She is higher than
    the cherubim and seraphim. She is the
    only created being who was honored
    by God so greatly that his son took his
    flesh from her. She has totally unique
    place of honor in heaven and
    therefore also amongst all of God’s
    people on earth. The honor we give her,
    therefore, and the dulia we give
    her is higher than any other being. But
    it is not latria. We’re clear about that.
    We do not worship Mary. The sign of
    this is that we do not make sacrifice to
    her. You don’t find any Catholic priest
    offering a Mass to Mary. No. The
    sacrifice of the Mass is offered to God
    the Almighty Father. This also should be
    clearly: the dulia and hyperdulia which
    we give to Mary and the saints is
    ultimately honor given to God. We
    honor the saints (including the
    Blessed Mother) not for who they are,
    but for who God made them to be. We
    honor in them…….
    so plz we dont worship mary….

    Hmmm God nos our hearts words are cheap. Pastor okotie

  24. Emeritus

    Do not judge..,for the measure u give is what u will recieve

  25. Louis

    That Chris of a guy should go back to his former career.How can u claim to be a man of God when your home is in shamble.I pitty your followers.You cannot handle a family but you feel you are handling a congregation.You are just misleading people via church business.You better go into politic or run your church the way it should.Politics and religion are two parallel things.Give away one.A man with two watches is never sure of the time.Maybe the hell fire you talk about is your promise land.Go chop ship Mr man


    John 14:6 has proven that Jesus is the only way to salvation, the only thing that I don’t understand with the catholic church is, they included Mary in the way of Salvation, other doctrinal issues of catholic is not as grievous as this.

    This is a good reply. Good explanation. Thanks again.

    I think Pastor Chris needs to do some small research before he speaks, and yes I am catholic and will pray for Pastor Chris to find peace, joy and love.

    Good one Efizkid!
