Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Supports Abortion For Rape Victims

March 3, 2014 – Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Supports Abortion For Rape Victims

The founder of Christ Embassy Church, Pastor Chris O has voiced out his support for victims of rape.

During the communion service this past Sunday, he was asked if a baby conceived by rape should be aborted, he said the decision is up to the victim. He however didn’t condemn it.

He cited the case of King David and Bethsheda in the bible. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said the child delivered as a result of David’s sin died despite his prayer and fasting.

Hear Pastor Chris in his own words:

“No child should be brought into this world by force, if a lady has been raped, it is left for her to make a decision of whether to keep the baby or not. If you have never been raped or someone close to you haven’t, you may not agree with this statement.It is never mentioned anywhere in the bible, to keep a child from a woman who was raped!”

Do you think victims of rape should abort their babies?

    Let us be objective here. Not all victims of rape end up with pregnancy and also if someone is raped, I he or she can go to the hospital for a complete flush even before the baby start forming in her womb.
    Why would a woman wait until the baby develop to terminate the pregnancy?

      ARE WE TALKIN ABT HUMAN BEING(FEOTUS).NO PASTOR ANYWHERE HAVE ANY 2 DEBATE IF MURDER IS RIGHT OR NOT. A GOD-FEARIN PASTOR IS BOLD,FEARLESS AND LION-HEARTD.IF A PASTOR CAN’T CALL A SPADE A SPADE, LET HIM QUIT. ANY1 WHO SUPPORT ABORTION(MURDERER OF D FUTURE LEADERS) WILL NEVER ESCAPE GOD’S JUDGEMENT. LET US FEAR GOD. JESUS IS COMING SOON.

      Before you judge, Put yourself in a lady’s shoes. If your mother, sister or wife was raped by an armed robber and she became pregnant would you tell any one of them to keep the baby? Lol

    who will be THE real father to the baby after delivery,BECOS the baby are just no future of father liberty.so l dont see the reason of keeping baby that DONT hv a father and its a big insult to the baby in future when he or she has no father

      @ Gbenga am suprise at ur level of undastanding,why would say such,have u forgotten dat d father u ve can die at anytime and u become fatheress as such u ve no father.there is ntn bad in keeping d baby,remember some ppl ve all d parents and everything in dis world bt still turn out to b whom they want to be,For a man of God to support such evil is uncalled for,why do we ve counselling in churches and so many oda places,May God help us all in some of d decision we take in life!

        Well I can understand that Lots of people are ignorant of future, The pastor did not say that a child with a father should be aborted, he said in case of RAPE, please people do read understand and respond in a manner that matched what you read, In life any one can die any time any day, its a different issue when a woman is been pregnant for the husband and the husband happen to die, is it the same as a raped pregnant one ? This pastor I don’t know him nor been in defense of any pastor but we must be reasonable in attacking some one.

    Pastor oyakhilome do not understand the bible, one don’t just pick up a bible and start reading, you need devine presence of the Holy ghost to understand the bible.

    I ASK PASTOR CHRIS THIS QUESTION: WHAT ABOUT THIS SITUATION, NEWLY MARRIED COUPLE, THE MAN DIED WHILE HIS WIFE IS PREGNANT FOR THEIR FIRST BABY, SHOULD THE WOMAN COMMIT ABORTION JUST BCOS THE CHILD HAS NO FATHER.

    MANY KIDS HAVE BECOME GREAT EVEN WITHOUT BOTH PARENT, I HAVE SEEN ONE, FROM A MOTHERLESS BABY HOME, A CLOSE FRIEND TO MY ELDER BROTHER, WHY DO PEOPLE REASON THIS WAY, MOST THE BIBLE SAY EVERY LITTLE THING TO DO AND NOT TO DO.

    SOME PEOPLE FEEL THEY KNOW BETTER THAN GOD

This pastor I don’t know him nor been in defense of any pastor but we must be reasonable in attacking some one, I can only falter him in one way, In my opinion he should have asked those raped to immediately visit a hospital and take a proper flush of their system.

    This is absurd. How can a someone be supporting abortion. No matter who u are. Even traditionalist don’t support abortion cos it is murder. Followers of such people should think twice because they are on the way to hell. No child is a mistake. Jepthah in the Bibele was a product of adultery, he was disowned but God still used him mightily. David even didn’t even want the child to die but God took the baby. How can someone kill a child because he is a product of rape. Worst still, let the child be born and taken to orphanage becos God hates evil. You cannot justify evil with evil.

    I believe dat ans is d best ans to dat question. Have u been rape? Have ur Sister been rape? Wat of a tenager who is so afraid of telliin d parents/guardian only to found out later dat she got pregnant, wat den do u advice she do? But lyk d man of God said, if u’ve neva been rape or ur sister has neva been rape, den u lack d right to question Pastor Chris’ ans to dat question. Until u experience it or meet a victim of rape, u cant judge. For crying out loud how can u tell ur frnd/sister/relative to keep a child dat came after been ravaged by four criminals. Are u out of ur mind???

  16. Dan

    March 4, 2014 at 7:54 AM

    It is well.
    I think immediate flushing if possible is the best solution.
    Once it is kept secret till the baby begins to form, then life has begun and abortion will be tantamount to killing.

    As humans, we are not of same mental strength. So who is to tell if with good counseling and support system a woman cannot have the baby and nurture it to become a blessing to his/her generation. That is where God comes in ….Baba mi Loke awamaridi! King of kings and Lord of Lords. The God that does what no man can do. Mountain mover and miracle worker. Alagbaranla.

    Pastor. Chris is looking at this from a flesh point of view,which is were majority looks at everything anyway…..as a Pastor he needs to project things from a spiritual angle regardless of the multitude of people that may disagree. Our wisdom is foolishness to God.

    Brethrens am not in suport of this topic of abortion,let me ask u dis question wat if in the proces she died?where wil she go, ask urselves this question.THANKS

    Please i am not judging anybody here, i am not happy with most comments here, @liljenny & Shalom i read the post very well, you guys should be more straight forward and don’t get things mixed up, you talk about rape victim and also a fatherless child were do u guys stand, is it the rape or the child, a fatherless child have every right to live no matter what.

    If my sister is rape n she is pregnant, i will never advice her for abortion, it is shameful but our God is good, there are reason behind everything, God has a plan for every human being.

    Earthly wisdom cannot profit a man, it is a bad thing 4 a girl to be rape, but if she is pregnant as a result of the rape, the child is lucky to have a mother, people pick a baby dumped somewhere and make the baby become something in life.

    For those of u who say a child as a result of rape should be aborted, will also support the killing of a motherless baby dumped somewhere. Because aborting a baby who has the right to live is not different from killing same baby after birth.

    RAPE IS EVIL, ABORTION IS MORE EVIL.

    N.B- i am not writing to be heard @liljenny, we all have right to our own opinion and also learn from others opinion, ur comment is ur opinion

    I think in whatever we do, we should apply the fear of God and His Word. Putting God first in whatever we do goes a long way in defining who we are and being in safe side. The issue of rape is a crime to God and humanity. If at the immediate stage of the victim, she could go for medical treatment which could involved cleansing or flushing – so to say – or what ever medical terminology that could be given to such, but once the rape resulted to pregnancy, the victim being a christian should not deliberately abort the pregnancy, otherwise, she herself would be committing a crime/sin of murder.

    PLEASE MY FOLLOW READER JUST UNDERSTAND THAT GOD DON’T SUPPORT BASTARD! FOR EXAMPLE LOOK AT THE CASE OF KING DAVID AND BETHESDA IN THE BIBLE. DESPITE THE CHILD DIED AFTER 7 DAYS FASTING AND PRAYER. PASTOR CHRIS. I SUPPORT YOU! BUT AM NOT YOUR MEMBER! BUT BELIEVE IN TRUST OF LIFE!!!
    SECONDLY BIBLE SAYS IN THE BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY 23:2 A BASTARD SHALL NOT ENTER INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD EVEN TO HIS TENTH CONGREGATION SHALL HE NOT ENTER INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD GOD. SAY THE LORD! WHO ARE YOU TO QUESTIONS GOD! I ASK YOU?????

    Helo Friends, sin is sin, there is no justification for abortion, the world is changing by accepting bad to be good but God can never change his standard, the bible didn’t permit a rape victim to abort her baby, all unrighteousness is sin, raping a woman is sin and aborting the baby is sin also.

    March 4, 2014 at 11:24 AM

    @ ONYINYE AND PATBEST…………..why do you people complicate things and make issues out of your own impatience or lack of understanding? The topic is basically about rape victims not keeping babies that may result from the incidence and not whether someone has father or not. Stop your blind arguements please. You are totally out of contest.

  23. benny

    D case of rape is a forceful and illegal carnal knowledge of a woman without her consent,and any pregnancy resulting from dat bears d seed of d rapist.It’s up to d woman affected to choose what to do according as d Spirit leads her.This case of rape can be likened to a soldier who is in a war front,what he does when he faces d enemy is entirely up to.He can decide to shoot d enemy or capture d enemy alive and take him as prisoner of war.U need to be in d situation before u judge what to do

    there is different between somebody beeing fatherless nd nt knowing his father at all neither the father’s family, just to be told that the mother was raped. Think nw. Bible says “wisdom is the principal thing and in getting wisdom, we should get understanding.

    it is a shame for pastor chris to be telling the ill-informed public this kind of thing. the other day it was masturbation and now abortion for rape victimes. please where is the will of God which must prevail in every situation a christian finds himself. it is now as you want God will understad. the truth is that two wrongs can never make a right young people should read the lives of sts cecilia, agnes etc to know what it means to proclaim christ Jesus in a life or death situation.the child king David got through uria’s wife deid the woman did not abort the baby. No thanks to you pastor.

    I marvel indeed how many seem to be quick to write without giving good thoughts to the matter at hand. Whilst I do not in anyway support sin in any form, as masturbation, murder, abortion, rape etc I would in the same vein, not be quick to condemn those wearing the shoes because if I found myself wearing same shoes, I’m certain my opinion and thinking would be different.

    For those who condemn abortion by rape victims, do you know that some rape victims never recover from it till death, whilst some even commit suicide? Do you find it easy for someone that’s gone through the rape trauma, to carry the child of the wicked, nurture it and fend for it; having to relive the experience daily till she dies? Do you know the experiences of a single parent and all it’s wahala?

    Are you aware that most victims end up abusing the child for the sins of the father, or do you blame their frustration? Have you considered the stigma that accompanies “she don drop engine” talk less of a rape victim? Do you know that she may never be fortunate with a husband and thereby forfeiting her own dreams of a family of her own? Did you ever consider that the unborn child MUST carry the genes of the father? who knows what and what! And if the said child so carries the ill gene, who bares the brunt? The raped? If it were your sister, niece, wife or daughter, what will honestly be your take?

    As a Christian, all I pray to God is that such evil should not visit my home or any of my loved one in Jesus Christ name. Amen. After that, I SHUT MY MOUTH and leave who and whatever to God because many things I had condemned in the past came to me and I saw it differently as I felt the pain first hand

    The bible did not say do not commit abortion but said do not kill. Kill what? This law holds once a person has been born into this world. If not you are neither affected or controlled by the laws of this world.
    I know you would say the baby is human and alive even in the womb, but what you forgot is that even the life exist right from the sperm cells! HAHAHAHA not for the babes….Only for the mature!

    The bible said thou shall not kill but we must admit major wars fought by men during the old testament supported by God caused major killings. Some persons say we should not interprets the bible based on our understanding but then we must also admit to ourselves the meaning of what the bible says is itself made possible through our understanding. So whether you like it or not our understanding plays a crucial role in interpreting the scriptures. So I will go ahead to say the rape victim should go ahead to decide on aborting the baby or not from what she understands from the scriptures.
    Whatever argument we must have it goes down to the fact only the rape victim has a decision in this matter after all she is the one experiencing the problem. God himself gave us choice to choose good or bad. And so if Pastor Chris is saying she the victim has this choice then it is absolutely correct. And we men have no right to judge the output or result of this choice. Therefore the best we can do as her family and friends is to allow her make the choice and let God be the judge of the action.
