Barely a month after the BBC released a report about several recorded deaths after the HIV and Aids healing claims in various churches and disingenuously mentioned TB Joshua’s ministry as one of such ministries likely to encourage HIV and aids sufferers to drop their medication without proof, SKY news took on the challenge and sent undercover agents who had hidden cameras tucked in their jackets to SCOAN UK as AIDS sufferers, presumably because they felt the BBC report didn’t have a nice ring to it following their lack of real evidence to implicate SCOAN. Kind of like a competition between them on who would better cover the story.
The major problem with the report is that it sounds more like a challenge to the Christian faith, than it even does to TB Joshua, the reporters made it seem that God is incapable of healing a person with HIV, and worse still, are making it seem that the evangelical pastors are the ones performing the healing and not God, and so the healings should be doubted. If those healed of HIV in SCOAN are often or always not healed as they suggest, why would more with same cases be encouraged to come and those coming for the same healing increase daily?
Now we must say here that TB Joshua is quite a striking personality, he has critics from almost every facet of life, in religious circles, among his ex-disciples, and as though that were not enough, the international media, SKY and BBC joined the bandwagon. seriously, their report about the SCOAN seems to be no different from what journalists usually do with celebrities, where they make accusations that are not true and attract a lot of attention through it by getting everyone to read but then when it’s really is getting to it, it was not true and it only helped the person in question to sky-rocket towards fame. . It’s also indeed very surprising that with all their acclaimed journalism skills, they assigned no responsibility to the people who walked away from the church accepting that they had been healed without verifying it by established and scientific methods. Apparently, only a fool will be told by a pastor, your illness is healed or cured and he or she goes away, without verification…read more
