Jesus told me not to get married again – Clergyman Chris Okotie
The senior pastor of the Household of God Church International Ministries, Chris Okotie, has said that he is not interested in getting married again.
The 64-year-old cleric stated this during an interview with BBC Pidgin. According to him, Jesus told him the issue of marriage is over for him.
“I’m not getting married again because Jesus has already told me that one has ended. When I was saved, when I became born again, I was in university at the time. I did not understand the will of God for my life.
I called you like Paul. I tried to stop you at that time, but you didn’t listen. I want you to live a life of dedication to me and the work I called you for. So marriage is not on the menu again, never” he said
Okotie said that God called him to be celibate like Apostle Paul in the Bible but he did not understand until he grew older.
Recall that Okotie had been involved in two failed marriages. He first got married to Tina but they separated in 2001. He then tied the knot with Stephanie Henshaw in 2008 but the union ended in 2012.
