There is Nothing Wrong With Alcohol, Cigarette – Pastor Chris Oyakhilome?

The founder and senior pastor of Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome on Sunday told all who
cared to listen that since the Bible does not expressly condemn both Cigarette and Alcohol, then there is nothing wrong with these stuffs.

It all started when a viewer of his television programme wrote in to enquire from the popular pastor if it was wrong for a 'Christian to work in a Cigarette company'.

Below is the response from Pastor Chris:
There is nothing wrong with Cigarette, the Bible doesn’t say anything was wrong with
I know a lot of people do complain about it because of the relationship attached to it with some sicknesses like cancer...but if they really believe it is wrong why not ban it totally.

It is the same thing when you have Christians working in the Breweries. The Bible doesn’t
condemn alcohol. The only reference made to alcohol in the Bible is ‘do not take too much of
wine’. So you see these things has to do with the individual state...if they are convince something is not good they should just ban it..."

What do you think about the Pastor’s position?

  1. I really do not agree with pastor chris oyakhilome's position on this matter because the Pastor Chris Oyakhilome that i know will never support any of his church members engaging in such habits as cigarette smoking or "alcoholism".Besides,it is common knowledge that cigarette smoking is dangerous to one's health.Furthermore,the mere fact that government has not placed a ban on either the production,sales,consumption,importation or exportation of these stuffs does not necessarily mean that there is nothing wrong with these stuffs.
