Popular Nigerian pastor, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has caused outrage on the internet after a recent sermon in his church where he made what many have termed as misogynists comments by saying men are the masters of women.
According to him, women were not part of God’s plan initially but were created by God for the sake of men. Oyakhilome also said that when a man marries a woman, she is supposed to come under his authority as the man is the master in a marriage.
This sermon given by Pastor Chris has generated lots of controversies, not only amongst Nigerians but Christians in general.
He has been called out for being misogynistic and as you can expect, he has the backing others who think his words are valid and true.

The truth is Behind close doors this is how feminist keep their homes, they don't argue with their husband but they will come online to Make Noise and drag every body.

Pastor Chris isn't even one of my favourites but if you find an issue with what he said, you are a hypocrite or you lack understanding.
This isn't about gender equality. Man = Woman, but this is about family and home structure. Husband > Wife. It's not Chris, it's the Bible. 👇 pic.twitter.com/XNTxFiF3CP

Pastor Chris said the man is the master in a marriage and some christians are angry, arguing that they are equal partners.
Pastor Chris actually said it the way it’s in the bible…. and the Holy Qur’an.
