Leader and founder of The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T. B. Joshua has taken a swipe at some pastors who claim he is evil, saying ‘because somebody said I am a pastor does not mean his vision cannot be blurred’.
“You know what happened to Peter and our Lord Jesus Christ. You know how close Peter was to Him and the question He asked in that Matthew 16 – “Who do people say I am?” Peter’s first answer was improper and Jesus said you are a tempter; you are a snare, get out of my sight.
“You should ever think of the things of God, not things of the world.
“You can imagine somebody who is close to Jesus and the Lord asked him, who do people say I am – and he could not see Jesus from God’s point of view but from a human point of view.
“Perfection eludes everyone. Because you bear pastor… what informs that word pastor?
“The issue of pastor is all about the anointing of God. So because somebody said I am a pastor, that does not mean his vision cannot be blurred – and when his vision is blurred, you will not see clearly the things of God.
“There are pastors that actually receive the message of God by mental assent.
“The actual message of God comes from the heart. It renews our strength. The one that comes from our heard you memorise the message, just like you go to school.
“What you have studied is in your heard and the moment you are not practicing what you studied in another two to three years, you have to rehearse it again, but the Words of God are always in our heart,” the influential televangelist explains.
