The Church HIV prayer cure claim ’cause three deaths’ is not from SCOAN London


BBC REPORT

IN DEFENCE OF SCOAN

Our attention has been drawn to a BBC report on healing practices in churches across London. It highlighted the deaths of three sufferers of HIV who refused to take in their medication because they believed they had been healed by their pastors.The report never said anything damning about the Synagogue (SCOAN).

It never linked the three deaths to Synagogue as the detractors of T.B Joshua “TB JOSHUA” would like us to believe. In SCOAN a doctor’s report is requested before anyone is arraigned for prayer and healing. After prayer and healing the patients are made to go back for a thorough check with their doctor’s to find out whether they have been healed or otherwise. This has been the procedure in SCOAN since its inception.

Whilst the SCOAN believe in divine healing, they also make sure mandatory hospital checks are applied to ascertain the truth of healing. The bible is not a historical document and it is alive with healing and miracles. It is God’s word made alive and when applied works. TB  Joshua testifies to knowing  the healer and He is Christ, the King.

The assertion of Francis Kaikumba of African Health Policy Network (AHPN) that, ‘SCOAN may be one of those involved in the practices’ is unsustainable in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. “This is happening through a number of churches. We’re hearing about more cases of this,” AHPN chief Francis Kaikumba said. AHPN said it believed the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), which has UK headquarters in Southwark, south London, may be one of those involved in such practices. Francis Kaikumba Should note the SCOAN never asked anyone to stop their medication.

“It’s incredibly worrying to hear that individuals have been giving out advice about HIV treatments which is putting lives at risk. We work closely with churches across the UK, raising awareness of HIV and encouraging people to get tested and start treatment at the earliest possible stage, and we urge anyone living with HIV to continue the treatments prescribed by their health professionals.”

THIS ADVICE IS NOT FROM THE SCOAN

The BBC report has been seized upon by a group of noted former members of SCOAN to peddle lies and discredit the church. We know they are behind this orchestration to tear apart the Church and cause disaffection for it in the eyes of the public but their actions will come to naught. The church is firmly rooted in Christ and no amount of attacks would distract it from its agenda of reaching out and saving lost souls.”

We are trying to obtain permission from some of those we know have received their healing through the SCOAN to publish shortly.

  1. Of truth, there’s no disease that God can not heal. I’m not sure any sane pastor will ever claim to be a healer, which The Lord Jesus Christ, and Only HE, is the Healer. HE’s the Great Physician. I think people should learn to put their faith in Jesus. I don’t go to SCOAN but the telecasts I have watched, I have often heard him and his bunch of ‘wisemen’ say: ‘Jesus is the Healer’. So, how can you hold responsible pastor TB Joshua or any pastor, for that matter, if a sick fellow chooses to misplace his or her faith and doesn’t get what The Bible promised? God is oblgated only to His Word. He does not lower the standard for anyman, no matter how sick. Anyone who meets the requirement of faith, will surely receive what The Word said will happen. See?

  2. “We don’t ask people to stop taking medication,” the church added. “Doctors treat; God heals.”

    The recent House of Lords committee report into HIV awareness said faith groups’ approaches to supporting people with HIV had improved but more needed to be done.

    “It is essential that faith leaders engage with HIV as an issue and provide effective and truthful support and communication around the subject,” it said.

    A Department of Health spokesman responded to the report saying: “Over 60 recommendations were made and we will be responding to Parliament in the next few months.”

    TRY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE TO SEEK THE TRUTH.JESUS IS HIS MERCY WE FORGIVE US ALL!!!

  3. I AM NOT CHRISTIAN OR A FAN OF CURE BY PRAYER EVEN THOUGH I KNOW IT WORKS, BUT PEOPLE SHOULD WAKE UP TO THE FACT THAT MEDICINE IS BUSINESS. IF THE PASTOR REALLY CURES AIDS HE SHOULD KEEP IT A SECRET OTHERWISE THE MEDICAL MAFIA WILL POUNCE ON HIM. THERE IS NO HOPE OF THE MAFIA FINDING A CURE FOR AIDS OR CANCER OR DIABETES OR HYPERTENSION OR AUTISM OR … I CAN GO ON. A CURE KILLS BUSINESS, WHILE PALLIATIVE MEDICINE RAKES IN THE MONEY. DOCTORS WITH A CONSCIENCE AND INDEPENDENT THOUGHT HAVE SHOWN THAT DRUGS KILL, ESPECIALLY AIDS AND CANCER DRUGS. THINK ABOUT IT, OF WHAT USE IS OUR ADVANCED MEDICAZL KNOWLEDGE IF THESE DISEASES REMAIN INCURABLE FOR SO LONG?

  4. Hi. I agree with you that the article on the BBC didn’t directly implicate SCOAN. It was strange that they mentioned them but didn’t actually implicate them. Possibly for some legal reasons?

    Anyway, you seem fairly certain that this behaviour doens’t take place at SCOAN. I honestly don’t know, but I have to admit TB Joshua Watch made a fairly solid case for it. What do you make about the news story they linked to where the president of Botswana had to tell those who had visited TB Joshua for healing to continue their medication? Surely a president wouldn’t do something like this without good reason? Or is it a practice SCOAN used to have that it no longer does?

    There is a lot of confusion about this, and it’s a very serious allegation, but your article doesn’t really clear it up.

    • Yes because I know those behind the TB Joshua Watch.

      When a man is subjected to persistent barrage of attacks instigated by his foes and detractors, the very simple question to be asked is: What is/are his sin(s)?
      The world has seen and heard of the stories of individuals who dared to change the world by involving themselves in peculiar acts and activities; those which are rare and hard to comprehend and understand by the customary reasoning of human. These individuals eventually succeeded in their quest, by being persistent and sustaining their unique ideas, proposition and principles.
      Think of a world conquering individual and you will sure see traces of the acts of propaganda, name-calling, smear campaign, slanderous campaign, and the likes, thrown at them by their opposition and detractors.
      Jesus Christ
      Nelson Mandela
      Michelangelo
      Thomas Alva Edison
      Neil Armstrong
      The list above, amongst many others which cannot be mentioned, comprises great men who impacted positively on the lives of their generation and generation yet unborn. Yet, they were criticized, chastised, humiliated, imprisoned and jettisoned, all because of their ideas and unique contributions to their communities.

      Certain qualities are common about the lives of these people; they remained persistent and courageous, and paid any price to protect their purpose in life. The lesson to be learnt is clear; for a person to be in the centre of his world, he must be willing to accept criticism of the detractors when they come.
      One man who has consistently thrived in the midst of his detractors is Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Lagos-Nigeria. This man of God with the gift of accurate prophetic declaration, healing, deliverance and preaching of the Gospel, has stunned the world at large with series of prophetic messages that have turned out to be true and confirmed by the recipients.
      The very fact that the popularity of this prophet has soared thanks to much criticism he has received from home and abroad, attests to his many trials. In the past decade, he has been bombarded by claims that he is a false prophet of God. In the midst of these, his continued calm and silence has endeared him to many.
      So the question is: What is/are the sin(s) of TB Joshua?
      1. The fact that he cannot boast of a mentor?
      2. The fact that he performs miracles and deliverance?
      3. The fact that he issues prophetic statements that turn out to be true?
      4. The fact that he is a humble man?
      5. The fact that he cannot boast of the best educational qualification?
      6. The fact that he prefers to be involved in charitable causes?
      7. The fact that he is friend to the needy, beggars, widows, widowers, leaders, presidents, renowned personalities and indeed, friend to all?
      8. The fact that he pastors a congregation of citizens of the world?

      Whatever his sin(s), let us all be aware that great men attract great rejection. That is what makes them thick. That is the tonic that strengthens them. Imagine the kind of opposition that Jesus Christ and the likes faced in their time.
      Would you have believed them then?

  5. That was a very long way of totally dodging the question! 😉

    The allegation being dealt with here is people being told to quit their AIDS meds, and like I said in my first comment TBJoshuawatch gave very strong evidence that this (at least at some point in the past) has been common practise within SCOAN. Do you have any answer to the evidence they submitted? I’m thinking mainly the Botswana news story, we have no way of knowing the accuracy of the 4 other cases they vaguely allude to, although I guess it is significant that they talked about these long before the BBC article. If you want to provide a forum which convinces people of what you consider the truth about TB Joshua, I suggest you attack the allegations rather than the people. By attacking the people it only makes onlookers like me think you’ve got something to hide.

    Just a small tip! 🙂

  6. Hi.Jonathan
    i believe the evangelist cleared this all by openly saying Scoan do not tell people to stop taking drugs.
    ‘Doctors treat God heals.’
    president festus had to give such preventional advice upon hearing the happening around.as anyone would have aswell do thesame if they were the president.even if the information was true or false, from a reliable or unreliabe source.except they don’t care about the welfare of the Nation.
    Anyone who is to be healed by God should be convinced in his/her own mind.cos they’ll have greater role to play after their healing.by maintaining their miracle.
    Thats why Jesus always advice those healed to go and sin no more.cos worst things will happen if they continued in Sin.
    Going through the conversation i think the president believed Tb Joshua was a man of God.but just wanted to kill the situation by telling people to continue taking drugs.and say they work side by side.

  7. Praise the living GOD.There is nothing impossible with GOD am very much certain i will deliver me from my situation.am really in need of anointing water here in zambia but i dont have money to travel to nigeria scoan or london.please help me i even submitted my prayer reques

  8. My God answers by fire , glory to him for he has risen upon ths genration and it is th hope for th whole world. Bless his Holly name

  9. I think i agree wit doi.this is a practise of the scoan dat b4 u come 4 ur healng, u must have ur doctors report which confirms ur problem and b4 u come 4 ur testimony u must also hav been 2 d hospital 4 d doctors 2 confirm ur freedom 4rm dat problem aswel.dis has always been d practise of d scoan 4rm d onset til dis day.people who hav been dere knw dis.bt how can we realy trace d death of these people 2 d fact dat they stopd their medication?if by assuming it 2 b d falt of scoan london. Do we knw wat they might hav done after they recievd their healng?do we knw if they went back 2 wat caused d disease?do we? Were they mornitored?remember no one can mornitor anybody. we are nt innocent victims bt architect of our fate condition.if we shuld think of d death of these people this way wat abt the thousands who hav been healed and are livng a glorious life now? Can we say these 3 pple are unlucky or unfortunate?wat ever meanng u read 2 this, there is actualy one thing i knw: IF GOD HEALS YOU,HE HEALS U EFFECTUALLY LEAVNG U WIT NO REASON 2 DOUBT HIS SUFFICIENCY 2 HEAL U.
