Despite the fact that the founder of Synagogue Church, All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T.B. Joshua is dead, one thing that he took to the grave was that he was dismissed in the Christendom in Nigeria. His case resembled the dismissed foundation which Jesus discussed in Matthew 21:42, which read: “Did ye never read in the Scriptures: ‘The stone which the manufacturers dismissed, the equivalent becomes the top of the corner. This is the Lord’s doing, and it is glorious in our eyes’?”
Regardless of Joshua’s adventure, the Christian bodies in Nigeria never acknowledged him, both the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN). To them, Joshua was just an exorcist or a charmer, etc. Joshua was presumed to have said that he was changed over in his mom’s belly.
Any semblance of Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of Nigeria (RCCG), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, Bishop David Oyedepo and numerous others dismissed Joshua until his passing. Adeboye, in 2009 said he could never go to Joshua’s congregation to serve.
He was cited as saying in the Vanguard when found out if he could revere in Joshua’s congregation, “No! Unquestionably not! In the event that he needs me to come and clergyman in his congregation, we will plunk down; we will examine the issue of salvation the manner in which I get it, as per the sacred writings.
“On the off chance that we concede to that and he currently needs me to come and lecture similar message of salvation in his congregation, then, at that point I will go.” To Adeboye, Joshua was rarely brought back to life thus, he was unable to connect himself with him.
Oritsejafor, when he was PFN president and CAN director said the body would not concede Joshua to its crease since they were not persuaded that he was an offspring of God. He had said then that before Joshua could even meet all requirements to be a PFN part, he should show who mentored him as a minister in any case.
Oritsejafor was cited as saying that “Jesus didn’t say by their words you will know them; he said by the natural product you will know them. In the event that T.B. Joshua can show me his minister who pastored him before he said he was called into the service; if T.B. Joshua can reveal to me when he got changed over and how he got changed over, then, at that point we would think about him. Anyone who is a Christian is a Christian since he got Jesus Christ at a point.
“I assemble he said he was changed over in his mom’s belly and I don’t see anyone like that in the Bible. It is a cognizant choice you make and it doesn’t occur in your mom’s belly.”
He said recuperating and supernatural occurrences were not rules for conceding anybody into the PFN overlap or CAN.
As indicated by Oritsejafor, “We are not taking T.B Joshua yet like I said, he also can apologize and be changed over tomorrow. T.B Joshua can say I acknowledge Jesus Christ as my Lord and individual guardian angel; I apologize of my wrongdoings. Then, at that point he can say, come look at me and see what I am doing then we can think about tolerating him. PFN is for all; no one is truly rejected.”
