War in the Church, Many against TB Joshua Part 1

By True Talk

When you are called by God and a great anointing is bestowed on you, it becomes a source of jealousy, envy and back stabbing. Many Judases rise from within and outside your own fold to destroy and to tarnish your image. But as it is often said, what people don't understand, they call names.

It all started when Archbishop Idahosa came out strongly against Prophet T.B. Joshua to the extent of questioning his


Ayo Oritejafor
calling and pronouncing a death sentence on him by saying next year by this time he T.B. Joshua would be no more. Idahosa is known very much for his verbal vituperations and curses but this time the curse rather fell on him. He met his untimely death the year he exactly gave for T.B. Joshua to pass on. Words are powerful and people must be careful in the way they speak or talk. People should refrain at all cost in pronouncing curses on others.

Another Pentecostal big wig and leader of the PFN in Nigeria, Ayo Oritejafor was less charitable, and demanded to know, 'who tutored T.B. Joshua as a pastor in the first place'. He went on further to say, 'If T.B. Joshua can show me his pastor who pastored him before he said he was called into the ministry; if T.B. Joshua can tell me when he got converted and how he got converted, then we would consider him. Anybody who is a Christian is a Christian because he received Jesus Christ at a point'.


Pastor E.A. Adeboye
This is quite laughable, does the anointing come from tutors and role models? The anointing comes from God who gives liberally. Indeed, T.B Joshua never attended a Charismatic church pastored by the likes of Ayo, Adeboye and Idahosa but was a member of the Anglican Church where he served God faithfully and The Lord bestowed on him a mighty anointing which has become a source of envy. Thank God, T.B. Joshua was not tutored by the likes of Idahosa and Ayo. They transformed Christianity in to a commercial venture, a multi- business conglomerate with worldwide subsidiaries all with the idea of lacing their pockets with billions of naira to satisfy their insatiable demand for fame and power. To them, the poor did not matter as they believed it is nonsense to remain poor in the mist of plenty. They laid the foundation of the prosperity ministry in Nigeria. Where in the bible did Jesus talk or preach about prosperity? Jesus cared about the poor, sick and the vulnerable in society and he illustrated this by the story of the Good Samaritan.

Adeboye on the other hand had this to say, 'If he T.B. Joshua wants me to

come and minister in his church, we will sit down; we will discuss the issue of salvation the way I understand it, according to the scriptures. If we agree on that and he now wants me to come and preach the same message of salvation in his church, then I will go.”

Such balderdash! Who made Adeboye an expert on salvation? Holding a doctorate does not make you an expert on


TB Joshua.... Leading By Example...
salvation. It is now becoming increasingly clear that those who criticise T.B. Joshua do so because they feel he is not one of them, he is not up to their standard, he has not go a title (Nigerians love titles Dr. Dr. etc) and they do not know where he got his anointing from. If I were them, I would ask God where he got his anointing from. But one thing is certain, they do not hear from God. They are imposters caught up in drama, shouting on top of their voices deceiving many and siphoning monies from an unsuspecting congregation, promising them 24 hour miracles from God. These self styled pastors ride in the latest and most expensive cars on the planet. And the mega rich out of them have jet planes. Where are we heading to? Those who attend their churches do so not because of the salvation of their souls but because they want to enjoy the niceties of life and to be like their pastors.

Networking has become the order of the day among pastors all with the sole idea of associating themselves with mega rich pastors in America to be given the opportunity to preach in their churches and thereby raise monies for their lavish lifestyles. A pastor friend one day said to me 'after salvation, what else?' His answer was obvious, riches!

With such mentality, how can you advance the work of God? And they have the audacity to talk about salvation and that they are educated enough talk about such topics.

In part 2 we shall write on the ex disciple of TB Joshua and the lifstyle of TB Joshua.

This is a biased and unlearned article. Firstly, Archbishop Idahosa, informed his wife and spiritual children that he was going, because his work was over. This is total trash, saying a curse back fired! Archbishop Idahosa would never have done that! Again, what's wrong with Pastor Adeboye saying,he'd like to discuss the scriptural views on salvation with T. B Joshua, a man who says he was born again from his mother's womb. Your article shows a high sense of carnality and spiritual immaturity. Carrying rice doesn't make you humble. Have you ever heard of false humility. This article smacks of ignorance and the author ought to ask God for forgiveness, that he might be free from the curse that comes with maligning God's choice servants!

weather he tb joshua is not a true man of God is not important afterall Jesus said if they are not against us they are for us; whats important is millions are dying of HIV/AIDS and thats not the wish of God. He said, my wish is you prosper, be in good health, etc. He said is anyone of you sick? let the elders pray and anoint him prayer of a righteous man availeth much. He said if you have faith like a mustard seed you can say to this mountain to move and it will so be; He said greater things than this we will do if we have faith; He said with God nothing is impossible. by the will of God prophet tb Joshua has not even done anything yet, why should i going to church and still remain positive or be dying of cancer or not be allowed to marry because of a mere sickness and His servants are there? If you cannot heal or drive away an evil spirit, then you are not sent by God for He said these signs will follow all that will go. many have gone on their own no matter the jets or what have you if those signs do not follow you, you are not sent by God. thanks.

I believe in the church that preach salvation, because that's the purpose of Jesus coming. For the son of man is come to seek and to safe those that were lost. Prosperity is not the issue, if u make me rich here and when I leave here I became poor forever, God forbid! What do I gain. It is written labor not for the meet that perisheth. Am not against any pastor or prophet, my happiness is that on the last day everyone's naked shall be exposed for there is nothing hiding that shall not be exposed.

Him whom God has blessed no man can curse. Prophet T.B. Joshua is practising true Christianity. You critics are jealous cos u r unable to part with cash. All you do is hoard money that even your members go to publicly beg Prophet T.B Joshua for financial and other assistance. U preach just to collect money from the congregation but ignore those in need. U can't leave those who are generous in peace to do the work of God. God has said that He will begin to judge in His house.

IN FACT THE PERSECUTION TB JOSHUA IS GOING THROUGH THESE DAYS SHOWS THAT HE IS A TRUE MAN OF GOD, YOU HARDLY SEE ANY MAN OF GOD GOING THROUGH SUCH PERSECUTION IN NIGERIA AND STILL REMAIN STEADFAST TO GOD MOST NIGERIAN PASTORS ARE BUSY BUILDING THEIR MANSIONS ON EARTH RATHER THAN BUILDING AN ETERNAL HOME. LIKE THE DAY I WENT FOR COUNSELLING IN ONE OF THE REDEEMED CHURCHES WHERE THE SENIOR PASTOR IGNORED ME AND WAS BUSY SIGHING AND RECEIVING CHEQUES , WELL HE ENDED UP MAKING ME BELIEVE THAT THE MONEY WAS MORE IMPORTANT THAT WHAT EVER I HAD TO SAY. I LEFT THERE FEELING SO REJECTED. I WENT TO ANOTHER CHURCH ( NAME OF CHURCH WITHHELD ) THAT I SO BELIEVE IS PRACTICING SATANIC WORSHIP AND WITH ALL THE SYMBOLS OF THE ILLUMINATI BOLDLY DISPLAYED IN IT,IT WAS CLEAR THAT IT WAS AN ALTER OF THE DEVIL. THE SO CALLED MAN OF GOD WAS CONDEMNING PROPHET T. B JOSHUA AS THOUGH THAT WAS THE ONLY MESSAGE HE HAD TO PREACH THAT SUNDAY, THEN IT DAWNED ON ME THAT PROPHET T.B JOSHUA IS A GENUINE MAN OF GOD, INFANT, I REGRETTED EVER VISITING THAT CHURCH.

Any Pastor that finds himself building Schools and Universities to make money is dancing to the tune of materialism which is not of God. Pastors of MFM CHURCH, WINNERS CHAPEL, REDEEMED CHURCH, DEEPER LIFE ETC. Why are you building Schools and universities when many of your members cant even afford to go to school let alone pay the expensive school fees of your Schools and Universities?. I pity all of you deceiving poor people to enrich yourselves and your children. Cant you see Prophet T.B Joshua? how many schools has he built?. But he seem to be the only Pastor that remembers the poor in this country. just go to his church you will see that the church is getting less financial attention because the Prophet has given almost all of the church's funds to the poor and as charity. SHAME ON ALL YOU FAKE PASTORS!!!!!!!!

Ego and envy led the Holly spirit to keep them blind about TBJ, at that level if they could not identify TBJ through the Holly spirit then they are not guided by the Holly spirit they were only speaking for them selves. The sad thing is they led millions to sin against the Holly spirit. Praise that was meant for God was giving to Satan. Let them go for TBJ to deliver them.
