TB Joshua lived for humanity —CAN
The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN), Lagos State chapter, Bishop Stephen Tunde Victor Adegbite has said that Prophet TB Joshua gave his life to humanity through The Synagogue, Church of All Nations.
Accompanied by principal officers of the CAN as well as chosen representatives of the five blocks that make up the organisation on a condolence visit to the church, the CAN leader went back into history on how the church started with Prophet TB Joshua’s s sense of commitment and focus and enduring spirit.
He said the prophet, over the years,” lived for humanity,, gave hope to the hopeless, assisted the vulnerable and moved beyond the shores of Lagos to other countries assisting people who needed assistance”.
Bishop Adegbite, who is also the Director for National Issues and Social Welfare of the national body of Christians, added that TB Joshua has ” completed his assignment and gone back to his maker”.
He said further that one who is for Christ, as Jesus Himself said, is not against Him and ” our life is worth living because Jesus lives and if Jesus lives and has said to us that your neighbour is not your enemy, we should emulate same. We have to leave the society better than we met it.”.
Speaking further on the legacy of the prophet, the Methodist Bishop maintained that ” Whoever likes it or not, TB Joshua has left this environment better than he met it.
“This church was not here before now. This edifice has become a tourist centre. People come all over the world and there are members all over the world.
“These are things we must do so that our names will also be written in the sand of time because all of us have a limited time to stay.
“Whether we like it or not, we will go one day. TB Joshua has done his own part and has served his God and has gone to be with his maker.
“We are the blood militants still militating against flesh and blood and sin. We pray that our service would be for humanity. We have to serve our society positively”.
Bishop Adegbite also cautioned the politicians who he said should learn from the church and ensure that the Lord’s grace should be used for humanity.
He said politicians should give people good governance, roads, health facilities, better education and an uninterrupted power supply, adding that there is no need for us to fight over religion but must live in peace with one another.
Bishop Adegbite also said Nigerians should allow peace to reign:
” Let the demise of Prophet TB Joshua bring peace to Nigeria. Let it bring unity and let us move forward in one accord.
” The church of God must be one because when we get to heaven, there will be no Methodists, The SCOAN or the Celestial Church. People, there are all Christian’s. It is here we have denominational differences.
“Over there, it is one body. We pray to be members of that eternal glory.”
He concluded by praying for the soul of the prophet and that God should sustain and uphold The SCOAN which he called a ” great movement”.
