Masturbation Not A Sin —Oyakhilome

A shocking revelation by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of the Believers Love World, a.k.a. Christ Embassy, that masturbation is not a sin but a habit has reverberated on the internet including Youtube, with many people believing that the statement would draw different reactions from men of God in the coming days.

The video shows Pastor Chris and another Pastor of his church, Kwaku from Ghana,who asked Oyakhilome while he was preaching thus: “Pastor, how does one overcome masturbation?”

In response to his question, the clergyman, in the video believed to have been uploaded in 2011 but which has begun to spread like wildfire, said masturbation is a habit just like any other habit and that it is often misconstrued as a sin.

“The reason you are thinking of stopping it is because you think it has become a habit for you…masturbation is not more than a habit than any other habit.

“So once you make up your mind that you want to break a particular habit, you just do it, you make up your mind…in fact the best way to break a habit is to replace it with another habit.

“There is one thing I would like to bring to your mind that may be of help to you because the reason you are thinking of stopping this is because of what you think it is,” he said.

Using illustration, he said that if Kwaku was in the habit of playing football, he would not be asking how he should stop it.

He said: “No matter how wrong you think this is in your mind, get this straight, in itself, it is not a sin against God,” emphasising that as a result of this belief that it is a sin, Satan uses it to oppress people of God “making them feel ineffective an inefficient in the things of God.”

He said in Christianity as a religion, this habit has nothing to do with God but a lot to do with the body of the person practising.

“Satan uses his power to accuse you…so if you don’t like it, stop it, but God’s got nothing to do with it. It is your own body.

“Masturbation is about you and your body. God is not offended by it, He is only offended by any habit that takes hold of your mind and if this takes hold of your mind and dominates your body, God is offended.”

As expected of controversies, the video has generated varied opinions with some supporting the controversial preacher’s position on the matter, while others think the Pastor is wrong.

    12. This was said during the higher life conference (U.S.A) 2010 There is no one in the bible that he can think of in heaven that was poor point 1 only 3 people are in heaven the now from earth 1 Enoch 2 Elijah 3 Jesus they were all rich and that is his reason for being rich none where poor? There was only one (Lazarus was poor) and he was rich because he was in Abrahams bosom. Correction 1 Steven was not rich the man on the cross was not rich yet he will be with him in heaven? Moses he said was he was “Rich” he was not rich that is wrong (Moses did not have any worldly wealth it was against the law for them have wealth, for God was there inheritance in the land) Levites did not have a portion in the land of Israel

    15. Pastor Chris said that Christianity is not God with us, but GOD in us? Wrong it is both now and to come and forever in the future?
    16. If you ask anything from father in the name of Jesus and you will get it? (wrong partly? only if it is according to Gods will) we have not cause we ask not but ask a miss that we can consume is upon our own lusts) you must ask it according to scripture? (James 4:3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.)
    17. masturbation (self-service is not a sin against God in its self) many Christian think it is sin against God it is a bad habit apparently it has nothing to do with God at all its your own body you needed to stop it just a habit and the devil makes you condemned change the habit the bible does not mention it anywhere wrong very wrong? This was said on the pastor Chris live. 5:30 pm Sunday 12th June 2011 (2 Peter 2:1) But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them–bringing swift destruction on themselves.
    18. Just like smoking is not a sin in Christ Embassy
    19. In order to be sick as a Christian you must be back sliding and stop being a Christian and Christians don’t get mentally I’ll said on pastor Chris live on TV and tom time (5:30pm Date Sunday 19/6/11)
    20. Jesus is not the word of God now “Entrance of thy word teaching” Jesus is no longer the word of God? Because we are and I am because Jesus is in heaven God he gives you his word in order to make you his word, so Jesus is no longer the word we are we? The trees clap in the presence of the congregation of the gods he states the trees are clapping over us from the book of (Isaiah55: 12 You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.)
    21. There is no mediator in the New Testament
    22. Nowhere does it say in the New Testament that we are told to “Obey
    23. Christianity did not start at the cross it start at the resurrection, but in order to believe in his death you must believe in the resurrection, so Christianity start at the resurrection? But does it in fact started at the cross when Jesus dies for the worlds sins, the term Christian did not start until the book of (Acts 11:26) another lie with “Pastor Chris”
    24. Baptism for children is fine even if their parents are in the lord
    25. The word goes to your “spirit” wait I thought it went to your “mind” but the spirit brought it into your mind? Why do people never question things or read the word?
    26. You should cream your dream if you get a bicycle and keep the car and throws the bike away? This is wrong that is why the Japanese over run china during world war 2 using bikes and the German war machine stopped in it track for lack of fuel at the battle of the bulge think not ever problem is nail and not every solution is hammer it might be a screen you will need a screw driver
    27. He teaches that we are savours and he uses the (king James bible) to confirm this doctrine mixed with we are gods implying we are Christ meaning little Christ’s? The passages he uses is taken from these verses which out of context this reasoning comes out the book of (Obadiah1:17,21) delivers will come out of Zion and Zion is not a place it is a destination so the members see them self’s as “Christ”?
    28. (Not everyone can use the name of “JESUS” only his followers) (Rubbish everyone can use the name those who are for us are not against us (Mark 9:38″Teacher,” said John, “we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.”(Mark 9:39″Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “No one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me, Mark 9:40for whoever is not against us is for us.) Jesus said because people using the name of Jesus and they use scripture from act son Jesus I know Paul I know but we don’t know you (Acts 19:11-19)
    29. Ask Pastor Chris a question? A woman asked is it ok to get her tubes tided she meaning, her “fallopian tube” sterilised he told her to see the doctor this woman was told it is ok to get sterilized what does the bible teach well it tells you clearly to be fruitful and increase upon the earth the fruit of the womb is a blessing he did not even tell her to read the bible about this it is very much the same as Sodom and Gomorra
    30. He said we are part of the God kind and he said it is currently translated wrong in the (KJV) of the scripture? It is not nature but God kind (2 Peter 1:4 whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.) (NIV) 2 Peter 1:4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.{read this (Young’s Analytical Concordance) ( Page 588) Greek 2. Nature “Phusis” not the word for God is Greek “Theos” (page 419) so easy to see the word does not make us part of the GOD KIND false prophet debunked}
    31. “It is a sin to be poor” (Time 18:43 Sunday) (Date 07.08.2011) (Pastor Chris live) It is a sin to be poor no Christian should be poor? poverty start in the garden of Eden this was said on ask a question it is not wrong to be born poor but you should not remain poor as a Christian it is a sin to remain poor
    32. “Consulate man” “Sermon” there is no incompetent in me, I am competent there is some that say quote the Apostle Paul which says there is nothing good in me like the flesh but I can’t be incompetent I am in the spirit? So I can’t make errors (Romans 7:18 I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.)and if someone speaks against me I never repay them with the evil but only with good Pastor Chris,
    33. Faster crisp “worth hearing” Being roasted with the words of our very own “Hell Boy” our very own supper demigod, He tends to association wealth with righteousness I am the righteousness of God the fact I am rich means I am righteous but there is many in the bible that where rich even Solomon in the end turned wicked yet he was rich and wise like no other his early writings where perfect but in old age
    34. (GOD is not limited) this was said during his bible seminar series (28/10/2011) (13:00) but this not true there is many things God cannot do here is a list? God can not lie (Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?)1 Samuel 15:29 He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a man, that he should change his mind.”Titus 1:2 a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time,
    35. Hebrews 6:18 God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope offered to us may be greatly encouraged.
    36. God cannot break his word
    37. God cannot change what has gone out of his mouth
    38. God cannot do evil
    39. God cannot sin
    40. God cannot be around sin
    41. In other words he must keep to his own words almost like the perfect gentleman which is crude description but accurate?
    42. Pastor Chris said on the (time 13:1401.11.2011) this was during the bible seminary in Nigeria for ministers? He said the jars they were full of dirty water from cleansing at the wedding where Jesus turned water into wine (John 2:4-6-11) they are dirty because of the cleansing which is wrong Stone water jars at Qumran during the wedding which is another they held water and where clean because there for ceremonial duties.
    43. Christianity is not a religion yet it is the 7 time in the bible and he uses religious costumes
    44. The gospel is not a promise? It means good news said on “Arise and shine broadcast” It means “God spell” good news
    45. A Christian cannot be possessed with evil spirits “Arise and shine broadcast”
    46. “We are the glory of God” Also in rhapsody of reality share your victory, program and this is common in the church we are the glory of God? (This was to do with prayer point on “Yokoos” with Pastor Chris) and (This is blasphemy) the presenter is “Pastor Val” she is a pastor from Colchester Christ embassy (December 30th time 6:05pm)

    47. Jesus name, can only be used by Christians? They are the only ones licenced to use the name of JESUS but this is not true Jesus disciples come across men using the “name Jesus” and they were not believers the thought should we stop them he said those are for us are not against us? (NIV) Mark 9:38 “Teacher,” said John, “we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.”(NIV) Mark 9:39 “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “No one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me,(NIV) Mark 9:40 for whoever is not against us is for us.(NIV) Mark
    9:41 I tell you the truth, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward.Their reasoning is this they use book of acts some Jews who were driving out demons but the demons they beat up them up when using the name of Jesus (NIV) Acts 19:13 Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.”(NIV)
    Acts19:14Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. (NIV) Acts19:15One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are you?”(NIV) Acts19:16Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house Unclad and bleeding.(NIV) Acts 19:17 When this became known to the Jews and Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honour.(NIV) Acts 19:18 Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed their evil deeds.(NIV) Acts 19:19 A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas.(NIV) Acts 19:20 In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power.

    48. Acts 19:20 Paul in the city of Ephesus “So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed”. The peace of Jerusalem is Jesus said during atmosphere for miracles
    49. They use the Eucharist in communion services in a catholic way
    50. There called a universal church this means catholic
    51. The wealth of the ungodly is stored up for the righteous (Proverbs 13:22 A good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous.) he said don’t think like that because who wants the second hand goods we should think this way because we are on higher class and level why should we wait on the ungodly dyeing to get used goods we should make our own way? God is So, so rich we don’t want worn out things this was asked to him in south Africa he said this at the higher life conference

The Canaan was the father of ham, and was the black man I am working debunking this I know what he was saying was not based on scripture?

    53. They state Pastor Anita Oyakhilome: 26th February birthday on here birthday this she is the mother of God the members call her mother mama she is full of grace she gave birth to them

    54. They said she “is the light of the word” and a gift to the world a wise woman for this generation

    55. (John 8:12) Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

  2. Am not surprised bcos the bible warned us of false prophets…Sin is “any want of conformity unto or transgression of the law of God” (1 John 3:4; Rom. 4:15), in the inward state and habit of the soul, as well as in the outward conduct of the life, whether by omission or commission (Rom. 6:12-17; 7:5-24). It is “not a mere violation of the law of our constitution, nor of the system of things, but an offence against a personal lawgiver and moral governor who vindicates his law with penalties. The soul that sins is always conscious that his sin is (1) intrinsically vile and polluting, and (2) that it justly deserves punishment, and calls down the righteous wrath of God. Hence sin carries with it two inalienable characters, (1) ill-desert, guilt (reatus); and (2) pollution (macula).”, Hodge’s Outlines. The moral character of a man’s actions is determined by the moral state of his heart. The disposition to sin, or the habit of the soul that leads to the sinful act, is itself also sin (Rom. 6:12-17; Gal. 5:17; James 1:14, 15). The origin of sin is a mystery, and must for ever remain such to us. It is plain that for some reason God has permitted sin to enter this world, and that is all we know. His permitting it, however, in no way makes God the author of sin. Adam’s sin (Gen. 3:1-6) consisted in his yielding to the assaults of temptation and eating the forbidden fruit. It involved in it, (1) the sin of unbelief, virtually making God a liar; and (2) the guilt of disobedience to a positive command. By this sin he became an apostate from God, a rebel in arms against his Creator. He lost the favour of God and communion with him; his whole nature became depraved, and he incurred the penalty involved in the covenant of works. Original sin. “Our first parents being the root of all mankind, the guilt of their sin was imputed, and the same death in sin and corrupted nature were conveyed to all their posterity, descending from them by ordinary generation.” Adam was constituted by God the federal head and representative of all his posterity, as he was also their natural head, and therefore when he fell they fell with him (Rom. 5:12-21; 1 Cor. 15:22-45). His probation was their probation, and his fall their fall. Because of Adam’s first sin all his posterity came into the world in a state of sin and condemnation, i.e., (1) a state of moral corruption, and (2) of guilt, as having judicially imputed to them the guilt of Adam’s first sin. “Original sin” is frequently and properly used to denote only the moral corruption of their whole nature inherited by all men from Adam. This inherited moral corruption consists in, (1) the loss of original righteousness; and (2) the presence of a constant proneness to evil, which is the root and origin of all actual sin. It is called “sin” (Rom. 6:12, 14, 17; 7:5-17), the “flesh” (Gal. 5:17, 24), “lust” (James 1:14, 15), the “body of sin” (Rom. 6:6), “ignorance,” “blindness of heart,” “alienation from the life of God” (Eph. 4:18, 19). It influences and depraves the whole man, and its tendency is still downward to deeper and deeper corruption, there remaining no recuperative element in the soul. It is a total depravity, and it is also universally inherited by all the natural descendants of Adam (Rom. 3:10-23; 5:12-21; 8:7). Pelagians deny original sin, and regard man as by nature morally and spiritually well; semi-Pelagians regard him as morally sick; Augustinians, or, as they are also called, Calvinists, regard man as described above, spiritually dead (Eph. 2:1; 1 John 3:14). The doctrine of original sin is proved, (1.) From the fact of the universal sinfulness of men. “There is no man that sinneth not” (1 Kings 8:46; Isa. 53:6; Ps. 130:3; Rom. 3:19, 22, 23; Gal. 3:22). (2.) From the total depravity of man. All men are declared to be destitute of any principle of spiritual life; man’s apostasy from God is total and complete (Job 15:14-16; Gen. 6:5,6). (3.) From its early manifestation (Ps. 58:3; Prov. 22:15). (4.) It is proved also from the necessity, absolutely and universally, of regeneration (John 3:3; 2 Cor. 5:17). (5.) From the universality of death (Rom. 5:12-20). Various kinds of sin are mentioned, (1.) “Presumptuous sins,” or as literally rendered, “sins with an uplifted hand”, i.e., defiant acts of sin, in contrast with “errors” or “inadvertencies” (Ps. 19:13). (2.) “Secret”, i.e., hidden sins (19:12); sins which escape the notice of the soul. (3.) “Sin against the Holy Ghost” (q.v.), or a “sin unto death” (Matt. 12:31, 32; 1 John 5:16), which amounts to a wilful rejection of grace. Sin, a city in Egypt, called by the Greeks Pelusium, which means, as does also the Hebrew name, “clayey” or “muddy,” so called from the abundance of clay found there. It is called by Ezekel (Ezek. 30:15) “the strength of Egypt, “thus denoting its importance as a fortified city. It has been identified with the modern Tineh, “a miry place,” where its ruins are to be found. Of its boasted magnificence only four red granite columns remain, and some few fragments of others.

  3. With due respect to ur office man of God, pls publish a clarification on dis issue incase u are being misunderstood. Save d church of God from dis satanic harasment. If u realy ment wat u said, lets hear from u again.

  4. no doubt about it… Masturbation is a SIN. the Holy Spirit via apostle Paul instructed us that as christain, we should avert ourself from any form of immorality & masturbation is not an exception. It’s bad. So if u’re into it, strive 2 desist from it. Pasator Chris is my pastor; I cant deny that fact… But if he realy said this, my spirit didnt buy it all. Study & know the scripture for urself brothers & sisters. It pays.

  5. Masturbation is a very bad habit.Christianity demands spirit of truth,as holy spirit relates with individual,it teaches you on how u can live your christian life independently.Go to the bible and find out yourself.Masturbation is a sinful habit.

  6. I think this subject is not controversial at all. If any man has the Spirit of Christ and the witness of that Spirit, he or she needs no one to tell him/her if masturbation is sin. The Spirit of Christ will help you to understand. Because it is written that He (God’s Spirit) will lead us into all truth!

  7. I can’t believe that pst chris will say such thing but above all let us do what is right bc i believe dat with or without dis message we all know what is right or wrong.masturbation is immorality so it is “sin” pls do not allow anybody to decieve u whether it is frm d media or d pastor in quote.

  8. Chei…… End tym it is!
    Friends beware, d devil wil make use of them…men of God 2 weaken ur faith nd fall so u dont make heaven.

  9. Let me ask d ‘pastor’ this:smokin cigar and indian hemp is it a habit or sin,what of a man permin his hair and wearin earrings?my friend,stop deceivin urself.u cant masturbate without lustin first.u better give ur life to Jesus Christ,all unrighteousnes is sin.amend ur ways!

  10. we ar waiting 4 anti-christ nt knowing its already here wit us. D bible said dat many wil say many things in Gods name bt do nt believe them. Pastor, i beseech u 2 rethink coz if u continue lik this, u wil hv a question 2 answer

  11. Masturbation as far as I am concerned is a sin. It is classified under sexual immorality. But please stop criticizing the man of God. He’s human like every other person and therefore he can’t know everything. He learns everyday like every human being. Stop the hating and start praying for every man of God. They need our prayers.

  12. may d lord open ur eyes 2 c and 2 read d scripture clarely pastor christ,cos wat u’re telin us is nt in d bible.may d lord give us undastandin.

  13. chei…when some pple ar truthfully fighting hard to do away with this crazy act…pastor na u con dey pakage am like indomie 4 peeps to start eating it….bros chris if u mislead any soul remember that u gat questions to answer frm their maker….e bi like say book don 2 much 4 u….includn oyinbo pakage.

  14. soon he will tell us dat GAY aint sin..No wonder ur crowd keeps growing…u keep telling d ppl wat they need to hear and not wot God wants dem to know…Pastor chris u have lost ur way and if u dont go back to d old time Gosple that preaches Salvation from Unrighteousness, deliverance from opression and Holiness, you wud Go to hell where you wud find all Masturbators…

  15. Ppl of the world pls take note dat not masturbating is not a sin & does not in anyway offend God. So why not do what we’re sure of(don’t masturbate) & forget what we’re not sure of(masturbation) because this way we’ve got nothing to lose. So pls don’t masturbate to save yourselves the doubt of Sin.

  16. Chris stop plundering the world into confusion. The genital organ is made by God for a specific purpose. It is wrong to use it wrongly. The scripture says “All wrong doing is sin” I ask you, is fornication a sin? Is it not a sin committed in agreement? The fornicator, sodomites lesbians don’t commit the act with God. Out of the abondance of the heart the mouth speaketh. I hope you are not a mastorbator or any of the afformentioned?

  17. He should go back to bible school cos, once u conceive it in ur mind, u’ve done it. Pls tell him. Thats what his members do and he thinks its ok

  18. God! I think satan is taking over some men of God! How could pastor Chris said that masturbation is not a sin? Since our bodies are God’s temple, I guess that we should not induldge in any unholy things like masturbation or are we now Soddom and Gomorha of this age? Pastor, you are absolutely wrong! Please, you need a redress of the speech you have made! Because, you are too far away from the truth if truly you have said it! Because, I’m still doubting it.

  19. Chris stop plunging the world into confusion. The genital organ is made by God for a specific purpose. It is wrong to use it wrongly. The scripture says “All wrong doing is sin” I ask you, is fornication a sin? Is it not a sin committed in agreement? The fornicator, sodomites lesbians don’t commit the act with God. Out of the abondance of the heart the mouth speaketh. I hope you are not a mastorbator or any of the aforementioned?

    • That s a bit too far of u maigeri… You dont have to say that of a man of God..ok? make ur resevation and leave it like that..dont be judgemental..

    • God is not a respecter of anybody, remember Satan is one of the falling angel that was so close to God but when satan did contracts to God’s will he was sent out , pls do not support evil man statement that currupt the system , Is not the mind that control the physical organ? . Do not allow God to strike you down be warn

  20. u wil always be a slave 2 sin until u quit excusing ur weaknesses claiming it is a habit or dat u are helpless. As a child of God u are not helpless. The difference btw a xtian and a sinner is in how one views sin. A xtian hates sin while a sinner excuses and justifies it. Sir, pls be sure 2 use ur exalted office as a man of God 2 win lost souls back 2 Christ.

  21. hw can u do it wt out ur mind being there?
    Pastor please oooo, call a spade a spade!
    Remember, ur body is d temple of God so keep it holy!!
    I have alot to open da pastor’s eyes to, but i really want him to have a rethink!
    ….test every spirits to know if they are of God! Readers, pls test which spirit is speaking through ds famous pastor oooo b4 u continue to bind urselves wt satan’s yoke!
    Dat’s my own ooo for now!!!

  22. Wow… I dont actually knw what to say…but all i can say is that THOU SHALL NOT JUDGE… To me, masturbation is unclean to the body… I am a living testimony for that… I masturbate alwayz nd alwayz praying for God to pull me out of it… May God have mercy on us all…

  23. Jesus is coming soon.this an end time message.blame not d pastor.heaven is a personal race.try ur best 2 kno God more this bad period of time

  24. Such submission is erroneous,its a wrong teaching regardless of d source.even if an apostle or an angel brings such message,”Let him be accursed”Gal.I:6-9…Masturbation is propelled by immoral lusts,n so can never be a holy act.so its sinful.

  25. Masturbation is a sin against God but lets watch the full version of the video before jumping into conclusion..remeber Miriam’s leprosy when she spoke against Moses—in all may God intervene

  26. what wrong with those of us called Nigerian Christians. We always get our knickers in a twist on any topic relating to sex but find no need to be outspoken about issues of injustice and poverty in Nigeria.
    We get vexed by masturbation but see no need to be a strong voice of advocacy about the high rates of infant and maternal death rates in our country.
    We saluted the Senators when the played to the gallery on same sex marriage but did’t protest when the same senators gave themselves a massive N1.5 BILLION car dash.
    And before anyone quotes the Old Testament [or the correct name of Torah – The Holy book of the Jewish religion] those same people should read it in greater detail and they will see then gossiping was a sin that was punished by stoning and wear cloths with more that one type of fiber or living in houses that had more that 1 floor was also forbidden or a sin

    • My guy,when issues demands comments they get coments.The Nigerian injustice had got comments and still will. There’s nothing wrong cmmenting issues that u can…on.

    • Lol.I alwys marvel at how we all cum out throwin stones wen it cums 2 issues of sex.Are some sins gr8er dan odas?Certainly,no.All sinners shal perish.Thieves,gossips,liars,fraudsters,murderers shal all not see God’s kingdom.Wat about masturbators?Dis question is tricky.Cuz d Bible askd us 2 deaden our bodily members.Yet we hv 2 admit dat all sins in d Bible punishable by God involve anoda person ie. d wrongin of anoda.But who do U wrong wit regard 2 masturbation?I dont judge o.But I knw dat I masturbated as a boy&I neva fantasized about any woman wy I did it.Cum 2 think of it,d Church these days is vry absurd.I’ve even heard dat havin a nocturnal emission is Satanic&a sin.Lol.Who’re we 2 follow?

  27. Well my brother n sisters, i’ve gone through other’s comments b4 mine and i’ve learnt something personally.On the issue of what should b sinful or nt snful,it is good we let our consciences judge our emotions nd desires nt our emotions nd our desires overides our conscience.

  28. If Pastor Chris made this statement, may God forgive him and restore him back to faith. But if the print media or whatever source this devilish information emanated from ‘re just out to spread bad and satanic news, i beg them to desist from such acts forthwith or else they ‘ll incure God’s wrath on themselves. Finally o’ man of God if you ‘ve been quoted out of context please do not hesitate to clear the air, because alot of half baked christians and those who for ages ‘ve been struggling to get themselves free this sinful habit may take undue advantage of this error and continue entangling themselves the more with this vice to the peril of their own eternal destiny. May God ‘ve mercy on the church of Jesus Christ as it were today and make haste to deliver His body from total contamination with the world. That we as a body may be able to fulfill our collective responsibility which is to be a light and salt to this dark and wicked world.

  29. Can’t believe what I just read. All the things we see, read, and hear are all signs of the end tym. The only thing I can say is to use d Bible our standard, especialy in this last days; n be silent about what the bible is silent about.

  30. Distasteful! I pity people that will follow the broad popular way to eternal destruction. People quite naturally justify what they indulge in or are likely indulge in!

    Imagine concieving and deceiving people that MASTURBATION IS NOT A SIN? We would soon hear a popular Pastor in Naija endorsing and preaching in support of gay marriage n relationships! May God deliver us from this perverse generation that is even worse than Sodom and Gomorrah?!

    My dear people, do not be carried away by signs and wonders these days but scrutinise the message that comes from the Pulpit!

    Does it solely advocate PROSPERITY even when the Bible makes it clear in 1 Peter 1 verse one that we are merely PILGRIMS in this World?

    Be mindful n wary of that place of worship you believe has the presence of God.

    Make sure you settle for a place that constantly remind you that no matter how successful you can be in this world, IT IS NOT YOUR HOME OR DESTINATION!!!

  31. The devil is a liar,even a two year old knows that masturbation is sin.Watch,before long you will hear that homosexuality and lesbianism are the mind of God for those who indulge in it after all its their bodies.Someone seems to have forgoten that we are not the owners of our bodies,we have been purchased and paid for according to the bible.

  32. Am even surprised at sum pple mis-intepreting Gen 38 vs 8-10 remember d issue ws 2 reproduce an offspring bt d guy ws selfish knwing dat d children wil nt becum his so he dcided 2 waste his semen so God became angry wit his selfishness nd dcided 2 kill him but all same,am not against anybody only God has d power 2 judge but I stil respect pst chris as a man of God he is SHALOM

  33. May d Good Lord I serve,personally giv me foresight in understandin His mind,so as 2 dinn wit Him on d Last Day
    I tink U also need dis Prayer
    God help us all,Amen

  34. We sometimes come to conclusion on stuffs we ought to read & digest @ least we all agree that masturbation is an habit & if not there worst habits than masturbation like sucking of the pussy,licking of the cocks,watching porns & other stuffs.We all want to proof saint mcheew so sorry for you.Cast the first stone if you are not a sinner

  35. Well with or without what d Pastor has said.In my own Opinion n as a SON of God,Spirit filled Masturbation is evil and a sin.D bible says anything u do n ur mind condemns u is a sin,ask masturbator if they feel closer to God during n after masturbation.Let’s call sin by it’s name.My candid opinion

  36. Pastor chris dis is unbelievable, but know dat our body is de tempel of de Holy Spirit, bewarned and stop deceiving people abeg!

  37. Pastor Chris is a man and not God. We shld always base our standard on the word of God. I hv not watch the video so I can’t say much. Hold on to the word of God and not the word of man.

  38. Masturbation cannot be right but aren’t we always eager to term famous men of God as false prophets? He said it probably as his own understanding. Must u ppl call him names? How r we supposed to assess a prophet;whether he acknowledges the Lordship, love death and return of our saviour Jesus Christ. Has Pastor Chris done that? YES! So he makes an assertion u dnt agree with and gbam na una be Christians na him be anti christ. Abeeegi!

  39. God has given each and everyone of us conscience to serve as a compass, when certain things are not clearly stated in the bible, to direct us. If your conscience does not condemn u then u are free.lf u are convicted of an act then u are guilty .But l know that most people that masturbate either bring erotic images to mind by thinking or by watching erotic pics or motion. Yet non is written in the bible as a sin. He did advice the man to stop the habit if not comfortable with the act so nothing wrong with such advice

  40. 1cor8:9 b careful hw eva dat d xercise of ur freedom doesnt bcome a stumblin block to d weak. If a leader talks, he shld always kno dat his followers r lookin up 2 him as weaklins they follow everything d leader does, pls help ask pastor chris hw he will feel if he finds his son masturbatin? Will he tell him it isnt a sin that its his body, what happened 2 our body bein the temple of God?

  41. ur openion count, but pls i don’t it is right to insult anyone or even the man God watch what u say.

  42. What can one say?Who are we to judge?Some think the pastor is wrong and misleading people,and some think its the media thats been foolish..Whatever u think,just do the right thing always..Funny”masturbation is not a sin but a character”did he say if its a good or a bad character?

  43. Why must some people in this life choose to misunderstand issues once they don’t like the source of the information,Pastor Chris as we all know is an authority in the word of God in this our generation,the results are there even when someone choose not to see them,do you know how ministers of God under that great man of God,both within and without Christ Embassy. He is not asking anybody to start masturbating but he just gave us the mind of God over the matter,honestly it matters how you hear.

  44. Wow! What a topic! Though, we have not watched or heard from Pastor Chris. Before appointing blame, let us hold the fact. So, be very careful! I’ve read every comment before mine. As I was discussing with a guy couple of days ago concerning people understanding of the scripture; nobody can interprete God’s words like Himself. Pastors have different views for every Chapter. Even though we are Christians and we all serve God but not under one umbrella. How come we’ve several congregations with different ways of serving God? Why can’t we be under one umbrella? Masturbation is an act that leads to habit and many habits have spiritual helms of sin. Read Luke 16-1 to end. There are manners that seem right to man but to God is sin, vice versa. Let’s search our heart of bad habit and start correct. Laziness, lies, etc. Read the scripture and ask God to lead you. Don’t judge any Pastor. We are all in the race together. I can even be qualified than many of them. They are human like us.

  45. from d afore posts,it is obvios to know mastubators frm none masturbators. but in d word of d psalmist i pray dat the words of our mouth and d meditation of our heart b acceptable in thy sight o lord!…father forgive them for they know not what they are doing!

  46. Hmm this is serious.I believe everyone that agrees with what this man said r just people and christians that are just want convenient christianity and look for ways to pamper their sins.your body is a temple of the lord, do not defile it.don’t be fooled.masturbation is a sexual immorality and sin.jesus said in matthew 5:28 that but I say unto you,that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath commited adultery with her already in his heart. This is to let us know that when you masturbate and imagine lust in your heart while doing it is BAD!!!! If JESUS can use looking at a woman. are we saying that our LORD has to write masturbation is a sin before we know it.You can deceive urself, but not others

  47. I think d He is right! Cos of a truth their ar sins to d body and dat to God! Where is it in d Bible that ‘thou shal not smoke’ infact I’ve come to undastand dat ur mind is required as passport to reach Eternity nt ur physical look of Holiness. Bt dis dosnt mean U cause other to Sin wit ur outlook. God Bless our undastanding!

  48. hes just confused. Its simple, can jesus masturbate? Ur answer should tell u if its a sin or not. Pls be wise folks!!!

  49. I agree totally dat d pastor is a satanist, 4 saying a thing like dis. He is a deceiver, working 4 satan. He can only deceive those who don’t ‘ve a sound knowledge of d Bible. People who ‘r tossed abt by every wind of doctrine. Ordinary Church members who ‘rnt pastors knw better, dat dis is explained as uncleaness in d Holy Book ( D Bible). To me Chris is clear abt being a messinger of d devil, working 2 deceive many as fortold. I’ve always known. Let me stop here 4 nw.

  50. before u start condeming the man of God, calling him names,why cant u find the message and listen to every word he preached.instead of reading headlines and saying rubbish..i have discoverd that todays anti-christ are using news media to carry out their evil plan.he said masturbation not sin, according to the report we dont know if it true or not.and even if he said so,have u watched or listen on the message fully?if u have done that u will understand what the message is all about.not reading the headline.word of God is spiritual not for carnal minded people.

    • rumours are given by idiots, accepted by fools and spread by cowards. U saw a headline wen u knw nigeria papers are liar, hav u confirmed it 2 b true. One said he is a pastor and ur bible says thou shal nt judge or ye shal b judged.

  51. Listen to this. I quote this from my book. Before any masturbation, there always come the envisage or envision of a particular scenes of sexuality where which the masturbator visualizes being take part in sexual intercourse with someone. some men may position the naked picture of certain ladies which they like in their minds during masturbating period.
    There is no way a man can masturbate without lust in the mind. This is not possible and what condition does God put lust? This pastor can only mislead those who are not well grounded in God’s word. Mistakes a number of people are making in the world today is that, God only judge sin base on confirmation. Listen very carefully, If God want to judge sin, He judge our mind, character, or attitude towards sinful things even towards our desires against sin and how we feel about those who commit such sins.
    The book of Roman 1:32 authenticate that those who are happy or have pleasure in those who cmmit sin are also sinners. here God judged our attitude.
    Iif you allow a man to lead you astray, that does not concern God at all. YOU WILL ONLY ROTTEN IN HELL FIRE TOGETHER WITH YOUR SATANIST PASTOR. So, run away from such man because, he is not of God but of the devil. I am a minister of God

  52. This man is a deceiver and satanic. Remember our body is a temple of the holy spirit. If you defile your body how can the holy spirit live in you? And God to use you as his instrument?

  53. What is a sin? Who is a sinner? Is heterosexuality rejected by God? Christainity without Christ the shame of the 21st century Church. As far it’s against what is boldly written in the Book Of Life, it’s not accepted into the Christaindon. May God bless us.

  54. Genesis 38:8-10
    8 Then Judah said to Onan, “Sleep with your brother’s wife and fulfill your duty to her as a brother-in- law to raise up offspring for your brother.” 9 But Onan knew that the child would not be his; so whenever he slept with his brother’s wife, he spilled his semen on the ground to keep from providing offspring for his brother. 10 What he did was wicked in the LORD’s sight; so the LORD put him to death also. NIV Translation

  55. Masturbation is a sin because a person consents in his own heart to take sexual gratification from impure thoughts. It is sinful to indulge in the sexual pleasure that is derived from the satisfaction of using one’s imagination to FIXATE upon obscene images, or obscene actions, or forbidden sex. Lustfully fixating upon genitals, or sexual acts, is idolatry. This is called: the worship of obscenities. This is the sin of those addicted to pornography. That’s often a “guy” thing. Alternatively, taking delight in the lust of another, or consummating a fantasy of forbidden sexual romance, is the sin of adultery in the heart. That’s often a “girl” thing. The act of masturbation is an outward act that confirms that one’s heart and mind has consented to an inward act of impurity. Only by consenting to an imagined act of impurity can one attain orgasm. To attain sexual release, a person’s will consents to LOVE something that is sexually impure.
    create and inflame degrading sexual lust, or to invoke unholy gratification by the enjoyment taken in the degradation of another person. Indulging in impure lusts, or taking delight in the lust, or degradation of another person constitute the sins of impurity. Masturbation severely damages a person’s ability to accomplish the intended purpose of loving marital sexuality
    This is the most corrupted generation in human history for widespread, unbridled sexual promiscuity. Human beings ARE sexual creatures! The instinct for sex can be overwhelming for both men and women! Sexual images, pornography, and enticements to sexual vanity are everywhere! It is a slippery slope! From gorgeous fashion models, to the M-TV bare-belly dirty dancing culture: the whole civilization is enticed into pride, lust, fornication, adultery, vanity, addiction to pornography, masturbation, and consequently the complete loss of appreciation for the power of grace, or the true purpose of sexuality and marriage.
    I strongly advise you to read “IS MASTURBATION SINFUL” by NEW JERUSALEM

  56. Why do we always waste our time being too rightous in this country? The Pastor is right. Where in the bible was it said thou shall not masturbate, where? Who did not have sex before marriage? If u can masturbate. Thou shall not wear a garment of two fabrics. Everybody is wearing cotton and polyster. Abeg let’s worry about those stealing our money. 114million Niferians live below poverty line, u people are there talking arrant nonsense.

  57. hey hey heyooooo, Jesus is very near, you should not be decieved by pastor christ, Anty Christ is already in existence. Mind you this is end time.

  58. I agree with Pastor Chris, Masturbation in itelf is not a sin but a habit. I don’t think exploring your body in anyway short of self mutilation is a sin. The sin in my opinion is when you have to watch or call up mental images of erotism to help you achieve it.
    This is where it gets complicated, if you’re a married man and you think about your wife while masturbating then I don’t think you’ve sinned. But if you’re a single man (i.e not married) then watching or thinking about erotism is a sin. I believe that constitutes fornication.

  59. this man is who the bible warned us about… he is a wolf in sheep skin…

    misleading people with his satanic knowledge… and yet they blinded followers won’t use their brain to reason… because masturbation is not in the bible its not a sin? the bible doesn’t talk about ghanja, cocaine and secret cult so its not a sin abi..

    senseless pastor with jerry curl hair… dundee.. hell fire will envelope you

  60. Hey, itz a sin 2 ur body rite? Buh i rememba d bible sayin “ur body is d temple of God” do u tink dat since u r nt offendin God but dirting his house is dat nt a sin. Even if itz a bad habit, r bad habitz nt a sin? He dat knwz wat is good nd fail 2 do it, 2 him it is sin.
    In conclution, every man of God is being led by d spirit of God 2 bless us. Wen der is a probz witin d man of God, we r xpectd 2 hear tinz lyk dis. Plz pray 4 pastor oyakhilome i beliv he is undergoin a spiritual battle.

  61. It is a “habit” with sexual conotation. PERIOD. It is bad and sinful. Our body is a temple of God that must not be defiled.

  62. Wat does ur. Bible tell u. Is fornication n homosexuality also a habit since its committed wit d body. Wat does d bible say abt ur body been d temple of God

  63. People lie several times in a day, hurting others, killing them with their tongues and they don’t think anything is wrong with it! The man that masturbates, who does he hurt?

  64. Masturbation, just like any other sexual immoralities, is wrong. It is just like a pastor, telling his followers that they could have intercourse with someone that they are not married to, if they use condom, semen is first and foremost for procreation, it is not to be wasted has it would normally happened when masturbating . It is not to the glory of God…….IT IS A SIN.

  65. MY ADVICE: In the last days perilous time shall come. 2Tim 3:1; Jude 1:8a; 2Pet 2:1, John 8:32. In the name of enlargement of congregation heresis are now part of menu from some men of God. Beware of what you hear.

  66. “Masturbation is about you and your body. God is not offended by it” Judging from his statement, fornication is not a sin hence the act does not affect my mind, i can have sex with anybody, feeling no remorse. What is morally wrong is spiritually wrong.

  67. A lot of ppl are not using their minds effectively. First of all, try to watch the exact clip which claimed Pastor Chris said this (pmnews should have uploaded the youtube video for all to see.). Most times Nigerian journalists write to sell and they know the ppl get mass attention. Dont say anything stupid here until u watch the clip and carefully analyse it in the light of the scriptures. BE WISE

  68. Its a shame 4 a xtian 2 support dese statement n even goin as far as sayin pst chris is a blessing 2 dese generation it shows wat knd of preaching pple want 2 hear everi1 is running away frm d truth.his explanations are rubbish n very stupid he should support homosexuality n fornication cuz its ur body n nt mind.the bible says ur body is d temple of god period n wat u do wif it mattas

  69. I had my 1st ejaculation sss 1 during maths exams when i heard 5min more and nothing else to write. Now with whom did I have sex? Rubbing ur penis – masturbation is as good as rubbing other parts of your body. It becomes sexual intercourse when you sleep with the opposite sex. Anyway, God have mercy.

  70. Masturbation is about you and your body says…pastor chris. How would he term adultery and fornication,is that not about you and your body.for the fact that pastor chris is a man of God does not mean he can’t make a mistake.He is suppose to interpret the scripture not the mind of God.i don’t accept that it is absolutely a wrong assertion from him(oyakhilome)

  71. What kind of teaching is this!!!! Mind u pple we are not judging but are we now saying there are degrees to sin. i.e punishment for killing is grevious to that of lying?

  72. am not surprice,wait more are coming,very soon they will tell us that satan have repented and should worship,see and read 1st john 4v1-5,rom.16v14-15 and 2 tim.3v1-9..

  73. it is very unfortunate that this is the man that some Christians prefer to worship than their God. any way the end time is here, with this kind of teachings many people will get addicted to it after all is not a sin IN HIS EYES! but in the eyes of God he will definitely defend that on the day of judgement. DEVIL is now in the control of the world anybody can preach what ever he likes. If you believe him you can continue, if not ignore the message because is not from God! Watch out the kind of words that we listen to from the so called SERVANT OF GOD!!!

  74. The bible said something about the natural use of women in the book old Romans 2 when speaking against homosexuality. That means that the sexual urge is not meant to be quenched by any other means other than the woman and man sexual intercourse in marriage. The other option is sexual abstinence. If you burn with passion the bible says we should marry to avoid it. So where does masturbation fall into in all these? This is an attack on the family structure and union. It is not good that the man should be alone and so God made the woman. Masturbation says man can be on his own without a woman just like homosexuality. This is a dangerous dimension of teaching and people with hitching hears who want to hear what they want to hear will keep hailing! When you see your brother or sister dining with the devil stop hailing start praying.

  75. see my people,educated illiterates…una no sabi simple analysis.d man has said its a sin simple cos d act is a habit bt since it gets of ur thots n body it offends God

  76. As many as are lead by the spirit of God are the sons of God.Can the Holy Spirit lead a child of God to masturbate?Shelf control is the fruit of the Spirit so that there would be no opportunity for the devil to oppress us.So,the stand of Pst Chris can not stand the work of Holy Spirit in the life of a believer when subjected to scriptural analysis.

  77. Pastor Chris is a Blessing,The person that wrote this obviously is not grounded in the word of God.. People can be funny..

  78. Masturbation is wrong, it is a sin and I don’t know why anyone would say otherwise. The Bible says glorify God in your body and spirit which are God’s.,

  79. I support Pastor Chris Motion, come to think of it, we all can’t do without sex, don’t pretend about this, think about what can break out of a man that is eager to have sex,just last week a young man was remanded in prison because he went to a prostitute and begged for sex,she screamed Thief!! And the young man was arrested and ended up in prison awaiting a bail of 10,000naira,after reading the news I said to myself he was just eager to have sex and he should have just masturbated and won’t have ended in prison. Most of us both men and women do masturbate but we won’t just admit it, even the people we believe as Holy do it too, I see maturbation as a substitute, to aviod even greater sin that’s if masturbation is a sin,lot of men are in prison over rape or sexual abuse. A lot of marriage has been destroyed over being urge for sex when your partner is away but if maturbation is applied at the moment, believe me, its better than going to another man or woman outside your marriage for sex, So to me Masturbation is not a sin but a substitute to avoid greater sin if at all God see it as a sin. I admit I do masturbate even when I can reach my partner for sex,I still go for it, its not always about sex,its about pleasing yourself and being a human being. Both Christain and Muslim believe in the same 10th Commandment, and out of the commandment you can manipulate Masturbation under any of it. And Stop Cursing the man of God,we all have our different beliefs, so don’t see others of different views as sinners, its even a sin to Judge someone, leave all Judgement to God, even the one you see a righteous can even be a greater sinner to God than the one you think he’s a sinner

  80. Jesus said in Matthew 5:28 that “whoever looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery”. How can you masturbate without “lusting” after a woman, who may not be your wife in your heart? If that area can be dealt with, then, masturbation will not be a sin.

  81. End times are here let us not be carried away with this false teachers,let us all be like the barean people in the bible who always search the scripture after hearing the word of God to confirm what the preacher said

  82. Will Pastor Chris also tell us that Pornography is also a habit and not a sin?Converted Christians who were in the occultic world will tell you that,it is a spiritual attack that satan use to destroy Christian as the semen goes to a semen bank..The Bible said we who should test all spirit whether they are from God.

  83. It is very unfair that pst.Chris is taking the gospel to another dimension. B4 some one starts MASTURBATION he must feel FORNICATION which is a confirmed SIN. Please my humble members in the vineyard,MASTURBATION is SIN

  84. One the first effect of it is addiction, the moment you’re aroused you would always want to massage your private organ. Doing that would lead to defiling your consecrated body. Any teaching that does not have a Biblical proof should be disregarded.

    • G, you no de try! Where you hear am say man of God should not be question? Shey na dem be God? Check ur bible wella 2 see where men of God were not just questioned but reproved.

      David by Nathan, Pharisees and Saduccees by John the baptist and Jesus; Peter by Paul to mention but a few.

      Even Paul’s teachings were searched out in scriptures to ensure its validity. It is my bible (maybe not yours) that we should test all spirits and hold on to the truth. Don’t you think it’s demonic to tell people to go against that scripture?

    • Let us not b 2 natural and dogmatic we ve 2 b spiritually inclined 2 kn d fact there is nothing wrong with what Pastor chris said, so let us not get a wrong meaning 2 destroy ourselves and say Pst. Christ said so. Go 4 d WORD 4 it is more than the natural.

  85. PMNEWS, if you did not understand the man of GOD if he really said so why not interview him more based on this?

  86. I think Pastor Chris is nothing but a blessing to this generation and generations yet unborn. He made it clear that its not a sin, but if it takes hold of your mind and dominates your body and take you away from God, there and then it offends God and that is when it is a sin. Pls analyze his statement again (“Masturbation is about you and your body. God is not offended by it, He is only offended by any habit that takes hold of your mind and if this takes hold of your mind and dominates your body, God is offended”). People, pls don’t be stereotyped Christians. Remember that even when Jesus Christ healed the sick on sabbath day, they said he was wrong; also, when he visited Zacchaeus people didn’t understand too. But, i tell you that God’s way is never our way and that is why he is God. Thank you Pastor Chris for freeing many minds on masturbation. Shalom!

    • Any thing that u do frequently evidently has taken over ur mind,what is an habit?something dat has become part of you.and where is dat registered?is it not in ur mind?pls lets get it straight, masturbation is a satanic control over our minds to curse God to anger.do u no dat 4 ur semen 2 speel on the ground is a sin?God was angry with a man in the bible dat did dat,check gen 38;8-10.
      Semens ve a container were it is emitted for d purpose of recreation.

    • Fagbeeeeemiiiii! Kudos, because it is what you want to hear? Where is your sense of reasoning gone? How can you masturbate without fantasising? Does fantasy not proceed from the mind? If the body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, is it not wrong to defile it? I like the man Pastor Chris but on this one I disagree with him. This is not scriptural and it is morally wrong!

  88. He is a man of God, who are we to challenge his while on the pulpit. May be God told him to deliver the message. I expect other men of God who has a contrary opinion to educate us because many men may opt for masturbation to sex, since there is danger in having sex now.

    I hope other men of God are either waiting for the opinion of God or searching the scripture to respond at the right time. if it is not spiritually wrong, it is a moral wrong which is very harmful.
