Until recently, we at Watch Prophet TB Joshua always thought that the best way to analyse issues is to rely on the information provided by “experts”, whose job it is to inform others, especially those who really do not have the time to
do the investigations and groundwork themselves. It later occured to us that while these experts are quite reliable in some instances, there is a certain price to be paid by those who solely rely on the information of others without making any efforts on their own before forming an opinion on any issue. For a very long time, there has been a strong wave of attack on the person of Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, especially against his healing methods, lifestyle and doctrines by ex-disciples who have now form a bloc. Having followed the commentaries of blogs and online news sites around the world at large regarding this man of God, as time went by, it became evidently clear that the majority of those who are criticising him seem to have a personal issue with him. They actually turned the whole issue into an attack scheme, comprising of slander and campaign of calumny as instruments of their vendetta. So we decided to ask the mind boggling questions and try to provide answers to them. In order to do this effectively, it was important for us to visit the Synagogue personally and ascertain the true position of things and ask the outstanding questions such as;
1. Is it true that TB Joshua is a “shaman” who lives a vegetarian
lifestyle to keep his spiritual powers?
2. What has he really done wrong to be denied access to the top
Christian organisations in Nigeria such as PFN and CAN?
3. How true are the allegations of deception, abuse, mismanagement and fraud hurled at him?
In view of the fact that majority of people do not have a close relationship with Jesus, it would be lethal following the advice of majority, people who are currently in the habit of forming opinions about others from what they hear or read alone are strongly advised to desist from doing so and carry out their own investigations, especially when the issues involved relate to things of the spirit which can be discerned by proper examination in the light of Gods word. What remains a mystery to us even at this time is How this man of God has continuously survived each bout of criticism thrown at him to become stronger? And how comical for his detractors who claim to be God-sent to be unable to hand over the issue to God to nullify the “powers” of TB Joshua if indeed they are false and theirs are true? They could simply have allowed the course of nature to dismantle the popularity of this man as has been done to previous false men of God? But such patience on the part of his detractors has waned well in advance of their belief in his genuiness and hence their resolve to fight for God now by coming out on an all out offence against him. We however would examine the evidence our findings reveal on these issues shortly.
