Relationship expert and social commentator Solomon Buchi has spoken against the decision of popular Nollywood actor Yul Edochie to open an online church. According to the actor, he is obeying God’s calling and he held an online service on his YouTube platform on Sunday which gathered mixed reactions.

Reacting to the action of Edochie, Buchi posted on his Facebook, “Yul Edochie is making a caricature of the Christian faith. From cheating on his wife, getting another woman pregnant and being caught, to claiming polygamy is normal and okay, and now to open a ‘ministry’ claiming God called him. No doubt, God can call anyone, but there’s a whole structure to the logistics of starting a ministry.

“Who is Yul Edochie’s spiritual father? What church does he even currently attend? Who discipled him? In the past months, he’s been involved in adultery and polygamy, which the Lord can forgive, but why is his ministry launched so close to a vulnerable season, for which he needs repentance and healing?

“Yul has been through quite a lot in the past months, and he might need intensive mental care. This charade isn’t helping and all he needs is Jesus and reflective time to morph into a better man. It’s hard to tell if his ‘ministry’ is sarcastic or real, but whatever it is, it is still embarrassing to the Christian faith. Get your life and family together first, Yul”.

Netizens react to Solomon Buchi’s post
Several people have reacted to Buchi's post. Check out some comments below:

@Lilian Princewill: "Let 2 Timothy 2:19 guide those asking you if you are perfect. Anyone who would name Jesus Christ must depart from iniquity. That’s the standard. Yes, we all have a past, I have one too  but make sure your past is your past. He should put his house in order. Christianity is serious business.”

@Glow Ree: “Even Jesus had to prepare himself and be fully equipped for his ministry on earth after his 40-day fast where he gained the power to overcome the devil. But one man who is claiming to be Isi Mili, and a shameless polygamist is here telling us that he is the embodiment of Christ.

“If you like, call this a judgment, but we know that it is by a person’s fruit that he is known. If Yul doesn’t refrain from this parody of the church, well I won’t do anything.”

@Virtue Mela: “I couldn’t agree more. Sure Yul might have a call from God. But you don’t just jump into it. You must repent. You must restitute before you are ready to do ministry and disciple others.”
