PASTOR, DR. CHRIS OYAKHILOME (He sees nothing wrong with masturbation)
This is Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s theory: ”Masturbation in itself is not a sin against God. Satan uses it in oppressing the mind and make them feel ineffective and inefficient in the sight of God. But once you understand that it’s got nothing to do with God; it’s about you and your own body…..God’s got nothing to do with it…….God is not offended by masturbation….It’s your body you’re doing something to. It has nothing to do with uncleanness.” This was the submission of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, who has Ph.D. in theology.
It is understood that sex is allowed only to the married couple. Masturbation is an inordinate affection. It is a lustful act. Tell me, when you singularly decide to enjoy a sexual passion, are you a couple? Are you married to yourself? Masturbation is a deceitful enterprise.
The masturbating culprit has felt in himself, the same lust which the ‘looking’ culprit (of Matthew 5:28) fought within his flesh. The spiritual weakness which permeated the realm of the soul of the ‘looking’ villain is not in any way different from the narcissistic lust of the masturbating freak! While one disrobed the legal wife of another, mentally, to have his sexual way, the other locked himself up (physically) somewhere to fidget with the sensitive areas, with a demonic, sexualizing aim. The mind of the one who masturbates wishes for an insertion of the manhood into a pleasurable cavity for which marriage has not been contacted. Sin.
“Religious people tend to give masturbation an unrealistic colouration,” scientists and others will maintain. They believe it is just one of those things that come naturally to man. Of truth is the rhema “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:…” of Hosea 4:6. The remaining part of this rhema (i.e. utterance, saying) is: “….because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
We fail to understand the fact that there are only two forces: the good and the evil. Whatever comes into a person’s heart must come from without, either from the good God or the enemy, Satan, the Devil. Satan the adversary, unlike Jehovah, does not have any mastery of ubiquity. What Lucifer does is to dispatch demonic operations to every nook and cranny of the globe, ministering the indoctrination of Satanism, which is perpetrated by his demons.
Even if there is no scientific proof against this fleshly propensity, a child of God ought to know when the enemy points to another forbidden fruit. The stark reality, here, is that anyone who deems it fit to resort to masturbation is sick, spiritually. He or she needs to seek help. Such a person needs spiritual aid. The truth is that those who overcome this problem a la therapeutic sessions must have utilized faith: the inevitable ingredient of obtaining success, as far as God Almighty is concerned!
It is for this reason Jesus gave a solution to an inordinate affection in Matthew 5:29, “And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.” Homosexuals will always, with all vehemence, contend, “This is the way we are made.” Does God create freaks?! Of the things God made, He said, “Good,” but of the intelligent Adam, on the six day, He said, “very good.” If the likes of the acquiescing congregation of Dr. Chris Oyakhilome’s Christ Embassy continue to trace their fingers down their sensitivity, very soon like their gay counterparts, it will be their turn to start the self-pitying song of, “That’s how we’re made by the Most High.” Pitiful!
So why would a pastor see nothing wrong with it?
The definition of fornication and the inordinateness of masturbation makes the perpetrators guilty of fornication. The inordinacy of it gives it a bestial colourability. More often than not, a ‘member’ of an individual is the object of the depraved culpability. This immoral perpetration is a desire, craving, and a longing for what is forbidden. God forbids this immoral act because it portrays the savage penchant planted by the enemy. Joseph jettisoned this satanic inclination, when Portiphar’s wife did everything to seduce him. One who is involved in self or assisted masturbation is engaged in demonolatry without knowing it.
Anyone who masturbates has had his sexualization evoked by a force. God will not trigger the spirit of eroticism in any being. He is the force of good. He will never tempt anyone into breaking any of His laws which are designed to keep checks on inordinacy. It is the force of evil that inveigle man into the act of inordinate and illicit affection of the self. Do not listen to these scientific excuses. It is the same Devil who goaded the woman of Eden into slavery of sin who has dispatched his demons on an ambassadorial mission of ‘to steal, kill and to destroy!’ I guess a word is enough for the wise! Amen!
