We were all greeted with the shocking news of the death of popular man of God, Prophet TB Joshua last Sunday. Immediately after his death was confirmed, tribute started flying in from different quarters, with many recounting the good works the clergyman has done during his lifetime.
While many individuals and associations have been sending in their tributes and condolences to the family of the deceased, it has come to people’s notice that the likes of Pastor Adeboye, Bishop Oyedepo, Pastor Paul Enenche, among others have refused to say anything about the death of TB Joshua. Many people have taken to social media to express their anger about this, with many believing that while Prophet TB Joshua was alive, he was hated by those great men of God, because they believe he uses evil power to perform miracles and all that, and that it was because of this hatred that they couldn’t send a condolence message publicly to his family. However, that Judgment may be too harsh for some reasons.
Judging people while not having all the fact with us is wrong and it could even lead us to sin. In my opinion, one of the reasons why these great men of God shouldn’t be judged yet is that, they might go and pay a visit secretly to TB Joshua’s family, without no one knowing, it’s very likely and possible. I am a member of the Gospel Faith Mission International, some years ago, at our annual convention, our General Overseer, Pastor (Dr.) Elijah Abina spoke about a time he was sick and was unable to attend a PFN meeting, that some days later, as early as 6am in the Morning, Daddy Adeboye came with many gifts to check on him and see how he’s faring.
When this happened, no media or Journalist were there to make it public, as such, it will be wrong to judge those great men of God yet, rather we should watch and see if they have not do anything yet or will not do anything later.
Secondly, I believe sending a public tribute about someone doesn’t change anything or matter, what really matters is what they send to the family of the deceased. It should be remembered that a couple of months ago, the likes of Pastor Abina and Pastor Adeboye lost their sons, and we can’t really say it’s all these great men of God that send them a public condolence messages, however it’s very certain that a call would have been put across them to commiserate with them. Therefore, I believe since we don’t have all the details of things that happened behind the scene, we should rather hold on and watch instead of blaming anyone yet
