Catholics Will Go To Hell: Cardinal Okogie Blasts Pastor Okotie
Pastor Okotie, while criticising the Catholic Church in a Sunday sermon, had said the church is “a counterfeit church set up by Satan.” He also said Catholics “bow to idols and crucify Jesus every Sunday when they eat bread claiming they are eating Jesus’ body.”
Okotie added: “They (Catholics) are not Christians and have never been. They don’t know Jesus. They believe that when they eat bread on Sundays, they are eating the body of Jesus. It’s ritual.”
In his reaction to Pastor Okotie’s comment that “all Catholics will go to hell”, Cardinal Okogie said it is wrong for Okotie, a 55-year-old pastor, to speak on what he knew little or nothing about.
In a chat with Punch, Cardinal Okogie said, “It is always good to talk on what you know, not on what you do not know. The problem we have today is that a lot of people put their mouth in what does not concern them because they want people to know that they too are there; that they can be reckoned with.
“I don’t think that is the way to do things, no. I think the best thing is to always put your mouth where God puts it, if you don’t want to be disgraced.”
You may wish to know that Pastor Okotie, who had divorced two wives, recently bought a Rolls Royce 2014 worth N120m to mark his 30 years as born-again Christian and 27 years as a pastor.
