PASTOR Charles Osazuwa of Rock of Ages Christian Assembly has mocked Prophet TB Joshua in death over the latter philanthropy voyage and magnanimity as part of his earthly mission, cushioning the effects of hunger among his church members.
Pastor Charles made the assertion during the second serving yesterday morning in Benin City, South-South Nigeria after the death of the globally renowned Televangelist was announced the previous day.
Prophet TB Joshua has made a name for himself by paying thousands of church members’ school fees, established a football academy, while many more are on his scholarship scheme the world over.
The Benin-based Pastor was alleged to have said during the service that instead of looking up to God for permanent succor, church members relied on a man for their survival in a video clip on his Facebook page.
“I learned that one Pastor who shares rice with people in Lagos has Departed.
“Christians should learn to put their hope in God instead of man.
“What would now happen to those who depended on him for the supply of bags of rice and one hundred and fifty thousand naira”, the prosperity sermonist mockingly said.
One of the church members who spoke to Trojan.com.ng on grounds of anonymity frowned at Pastor Osazuwa’s evil thoughts expressed against the late Prophet TB Joshua.
“It’s devilish for Pastor Osazuwa to express such canal thoughts against Prophet TB Joshua.
“By the way, the money Pastor Osazuwa collects from church members as tithes, offerings, and donations are they given to him by God?
“There are thousands of people who raised their families and businesses with the money Prophet TB Joshua donated to his church members.
“Such based equivocation is against African culture to speak ill of the death. Even the Holy Book admonished us to rejoice with those who are rejoicing and mourn with those who are mourning.
“The Pastor is always in the habit of insulting men of God who are heads and shoulders above him. He regularly insults Apostle Suleiman, a man who gave him his first car when he had nothing in most of his church services.
“What’s the offence of Prophet TB Joshua for uplifting the downtrodden, for telling wealthy church members to always convert any birthday gifts meant for him to consumables that are subsequently distributed to the needing members of the church?”
“If Pastor Osazuwa chooses to eat the tithes, offerings and countless donations which the Bible specifically instructed to be distributed among the widows and the handicaps, then he will have his creator to contend with on the last day”, he said.
However, Prophet Joshua Iginla who got the revelation that Prophet TB Joshua will soon pass away on three different occasions referred to the deceased as a man of humility, ambassador of love to the less privileged, and a blessing to the body of Christ.
