There are many comedians in Nigeria. However, some comedians in Nigeria are making a big mistake. They are making jokes about pastors. They are using pastors as the source material for their jokes. This is wrong, and it is something that should not be done. Those comedians who are using pastors as the source material for their jokes should repent.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is the head of the Christ Embassy Network. He is a well-known pastor with millions of followers. Hundreds of thousands of people attend his lectures and prayer services. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has a warning for those Nigerian comedians who are using pastors as a way to come up with jokes for their comedy shows.
At a recent Sunday gathering for prayer and worship, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome sounded the alarm about these comedians and what they are doing. He had a warning message for them. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said that this message does not come from him but that it comes from God.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome was available to answer questions that people asked him. This was a session where he talked with the worshipers and answered their questions about spirituality and life. At that time, he was inspired by the spirit of God, like he often is. Inspired by this Spirit, he gave a message to comedians, and the message that he gave should not be taken lightly. In his message, he said that pastors are men of God and that they cannot be played around with or joked about. Those who joke about a man of God will face the consequences of their actions.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said that the Lord told him to tell the comedians to do whatever they can to stay as far away from joking about pastors and men of God. He said that those comedians who continue to sin and joke about pastors and men of God will see their lives turned into a comedy. Soon, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome warned, you will see comedians and you will look at their lives and wonder how their lives became so drastically reduced. You will say, “Is this really you? Are you really that famous comedian who used to be so famous and popular and used to have such a great life? How did this happen to you? What happened to your greatness and fame? How did you land in such trouble?” The reason for that, of course, would be that they joked about sacred things and took a man of God lightly.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome explained that there are some things that you can joke about, and then there are things that you simply cannot joke about. Sacred things are not to be joked around with. You can joke about mundane things, but not about spiritual and sacred things, and certainly not about holy things. Therefore, since pastors occupy a sacred place, they are off-limits to comedians and should not be joked about.
