In what will be very shocking to some, and taken with a pinch of salt by others who has lost respect for the pastor who has married and divorced twice despite how much God hates divorce, according to the bible, Pastor Chris Okotie has said all Catholics in the world will go to hell.
The pastor of the Household of God Church gave his reason for condemning Catholics to hell as ‘because they worship Satan and are led by an Anti-Christ Pope who is a friend to the devil’. His assertion left his congregation stunned, Sunday, according to PM News.
Okotie said the Catholic Church was “a counterfeit church set up by Satan” and that Catholics “bow to idols and crucify Jesus every Sunday when they eat bread claiming they are eating Jesus’ body.”
“They are not Christians and have never been,” Okotie told a bewildered congregation.
“They don’t know Jesus. They believe that when they eat bread on Sundays, they are eating the body of Jesus. It’s ritual,” Okotie said.
He also alleged that Pope Francis is an Anti-Christ who does the job of the devil and that time is fast approaching when the Catholic church will pledge allegiance to Satan.
“The pope is an Anti-Christ and the Catholic church will soon declare for Satan. This is the end of times,” Okotie erupted.
He advised members of his church to come to the rescue of Catholics and evangelise them. This, he said, was not out of disrespect but out of respect for the word of God.
He said those who know the truth should bring it to those who do not know it in the Catholic Church.
Okotie said one of the Catholic most revered Popes, Pope John Paul 11, surrendered the Catholic Church to Mary, the earthly mother of Jesus Christ, instead of Jesus himself. He said even the current Pope Francis has also done same.
He said Catholics are not Christians and do not worship the same Christ that he preaches in his church, at least the one spoken about in the Bible.
Okotie admitted he did not write the Bible, but it was clear to him that those in the Catholic church were lost and were heading to hell fire.
“They don’t believe in heaven. They believe in purgatory, the purgatory that they invented,” Okotie said.
“That church, the Catholic church has been there for Satan and at the right time, they will declare for Satan,” Okotie said.
The controversial pastor who once said God told him he would lead Nigeria, said a beauty pageant will take place in his church next Sunday to select the most beautiful woman in his church.
This is not the first time Okotie is condemning a church or people to hell, he once said famous preacher and philanthropist, Prophet T.B. Joshua is the son of the devil and his followers will go straight to hell.
