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 The bible is not a historical document and it is alive with healing and miracles.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.
