TB Joshua And The Practice Of Paganism.
When TB Joshua was alive, he was the enemy of all Nigerian pentecostal pastors. He was demonized, called an impostor in the kingdom, called a scam artist and was a pariah in the Christian community in Nigeria. They did not agree with his beliefs and practices. Many people came out openly to attack him, but to his credit he never fought back.
When he passed, some mega pastors stood on their pulpits and rejoiced that their enemy was dead. That their God had ‘killed him,’ as if God puts out contracts to take out his children.
‘who saved us, and called with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, that was given to us in Christ Jesus, before the times of the ages,’
2 Timothy 1:9.
We all are products of grace. We all are standing by grace. There is no person who is better than TB Joshua. Our works are like filthy rags before Christ. If we all are standing by grace, what makes us think we are in any way better than TB Joshua?
In Matthew 5:44, Jesus said: ‘Love your enemies.’
Not hate them,
Not demonise them,
Not rejoice at their problems,
Not celebrate their deaths,
Not tell your ignorant followers that your deity killed them.
God is not in the business of killing people. God is in the business of saving souls, restoring lives, securing great destinies.
But pastors celebrated and rejoiced at the passing of TB Joshua, rejoicing that their enemy was dead.
This makes me so sad.
This is not the practice of Christianity.
It is paganism.Continue reading
