Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua has contradicted the teaching of the spiritual head of Christ Embassy Church, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s that abortion, after being raped is not a sin. According to Prophet TB Joshua, on Thursday, March 20, 2014, abortion after rape isn’t just a sin, it is a double sin which has grave consequences.
The amiable prophet in his response to the question which has generated heated controversy revealed that committing an abortion when you are raped is a double sin against God.
“God often uses foolish things to express Himself. Many great people and heroes today are products of the background. In any way, in any circumstance you find yourself today, you have committed any unpardonable sin, run to Jesus, don’t run from Him in whatever situation you find yourself”.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, on Sunday, March 2, 2014, declared that committing abortion when a lady is raped is not bad biblically. In his words made available to ENCOMIUM Weekly, he said, “No child should be brought to this world by force. If a lady has been raped, it is left for her to make a decision whether to keep the baby or not. If you have not been raped or someone close to you has not been raped, you may not agree with this statement. It is never mentioned in the Bible to keep a child from a woman who was raped.”
