The founder of the Christ Apostolic Church of Christ, Agbala Itura worldwide, Prophet Samuel Abiara, has revealed why people hated the late founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet TB Joshua.
The cleric noted that people hated the founder of SCOAN because he followed the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
Prophet Abiara, while speaking at the thanking service in honour of TB Joshua, on Sunday, insisted that the televangelist was a man of God.
He described the deceased as a pride to the body of Christ in Nigeria and around the globe.
Abiara said, “I am here to tell the whole world that Prophet TB Joshua is a man of God and the body of Christ in Nigeria did not hate him, we loved him. The world will miss him.
“He is pride to the body of Christ across the globe. He is loved by all; widows, orphans, the less privileged all love him. He is a man of God that followed the footsteps of Jesus Christ. His life should be a lesson for everyone, he is a humanitarian, he is a giver.
“If you are a true disciple of Jesus Christ, some people will insult you. Jesus Christ was insulted by some set of people. As a believer, it is not a new thing if some people gang up and hate you.
“If God loves someone and you said you did not love him or her, that is your problem. Prophet TB Joshua was not a lazy man of God, he prayed, fasted and preached the gospel.”
Prophet Abira called on ministers, workers and members not to leave SCOAN but to continue the good works of the deceased.
“Ministers, disciples, workers including all the members in the church must not leave this church because of the death of the man of God. Stay and pray for the deceased family, encourage them and continue the good work.”
