The religious head of the Believers’ Loveworld Ministries also known as Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has chided Africans for believing they are Black.
Oyakhilome in a recent television broadcast to members of the Christ Embassy Church said that Black means the absence of colour and absence of good.
The 56-year-old pastor said: “Let no one call you black because you are not black… The definition of black is not good and they are using it to destroy you.”
The pastor and businessman told Africans they should have rejected being labelled black the same way they rejected the racial slurs “negro and nigga”. He said he feels sorry for people that say “Black lives matter.”
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said:
“Maybe I should tell you something, those of you that say black lives matter, I feel sorry for you! Do you really believe you have a black life? Do you want me to read to you the meaning of black?
“Who called you black? Shouldn’t you have rejected that from the beginning? A contradiction, a bundle of contradiction. You refused negro and nigga… But that’s what black is. You took the English version.
“Negro means black. Do you know what black means… Have you ever seen black? Black means the absence of colour, absence of good, absence of light and absence of direction. These are the meaning of black. Black is not a colour but the absence of colour.. like you are sick, don’t you understand it? “It’s about time Africans say to themselves we are not black. STOP ALL THIS BLACK LIVES MATTER! Let no one call you black because you are not black… The definition of black is not good and they are using it to destroy you…
“When you keep calling yourself black… You mean light is absent, colour is absent and you will never come to a place of light… You will be under… When God gives you a Prophetic instruction, it is important that you follow into the latter.”
This is not the first Pastor Chris Oyakhilome will be making a controversial statement about race and politics. He once said the Black lives matter protests that followed the unjust killing of George Floyd was not about racism but a ploy to install microchips in people.
Oyakhilome also claimed coronavirus disease was caused by 5G network and not a virus – a statement that caused the British Office of Communications Ofcom to sanction the Loveworld TV network for misleading information.
