Popular evangelical lead pastor of Christ Embassy and founder of LoveWorld Inc. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has berated the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, stating that Africans need to stop regarding themselves as ‘black’.
According to Oyakhilome who has been more outspoken on social issues in recent times since the outbreak of COVID-19 during a recent telecast insisted it is high time Africans should stop claiming to be black as black signifies the absence of direction and evil.
“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, you must follow into the latter.”
Oyakhilome recently slammed pastors who have refused to open their churches despite the government easing restrictions.
