Prophet TB Joshua Instructs REFUND Of $100 Registration Fee

Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua has released a statement via social network, ‘Facebook’, instructing those co-ordinating the arrangement of visits to his popular church in Lagos, Nigeria, to refund the $100 he learned they had been collecting from people as a registration fee.

 

Joshua said he was concerned upon learning from emails and online reports that those arranging groups to visit The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) were taking $100 as a registration fee for those desirous of visiting his famous sanctuary, stating that the organisation of such was charitable in nature and not a money-making venture. “I have received many emails and newspaper reports on the internet complaining of registration fees of $100. What then makes us an evangelist? When people go to concerts, they also register with $100,” the statement, which was posted to over 500,000 fans of ‘TB Joshua Ministries’, read.

 

He maintained that co-ordinating visits to The SCOAN was evangelical and not finance-orientated, warning those involved that collecting undue money from vulnerable people was tantamount to partaking in their troubles. “If we are evangelists, co-ordinating for God’s sake, all our concerns, aspirations and heart desires must be subjected to the Gospel through works of charity by helping the sick, distressed and unsaved instead of collecting registration fees of $100 from them before giving succour, I mean, attending to them. This cannot be justified; it amounts to taking a portion of their situation.”

 

The popular cleric insisted that money-making should not be the focus or drive of such co-ordinators but rather care for the sick and distressed in society. “If we are focused on making money only, a large slice of life will pass us by. We should spend less on ourselves and more on others,” he exhorted, reminding them of Jesus’ words in Matthew 25:40-45“Don’t forget your promise when you were called to be co-ordinators. Your promise, if I may remind you, was to give rest to the sick, distressed and unsaved,” he wrote.

 

The statement ended with Joshua’s insistence that any money collected for registration should be immediately returned. “Those who have already paid $100 for the registration should be refunded, for God’s sake. I am impressed by the prompt action of the co-ordinators in Tanzania and Zimbabwe who have been refunding the $100 paid by each person as a registration fee. I believe all others will act likewise.” Citing Matthew 10:41, he concluded, “He who honours a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward.”

 

The SCOAN is known to be one of Nigeria’s major tourist attractions, with hundreds of foreign visitors flocking to the cathedral on a weekly basis in search of the miraculous. The ministry is especially popular within Africa, with scores of visitors from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania, Ghana and a host of other African countries making regular pilgrimages to The SCOAN in Lagos. T.B. Joshua is also renowned for his philanthropy, charitable giving to the less-privileged forming an integral part of his church services broadcast on Emmanuel TV.

NB - Contrary to some insinuations, I am not working for or professionally affiliated with The SCOAN. However, I have visited his church, was deeply impressed and have taken it as a responsibility to broadcast the happenings at The SCOAN to correct the erroneous impressions in the minds of many about this church based on past hearsay and malicious rumours.

    Freely you receive, freely you will give. You do not pay for any healing coming from God. T.B. Joshua is right

        Deep inside your heart you know he is a man of God. The only reason you want to refute it here is because you are probably on the opposite side with him and you want so many people to be on your dark side rather than the light side.
        Take note: Light will always be fought by darkness but light will never be silenced or defeated by darkness. (John 1:5). The door is still open for you to repent. If at all you believe in Jesus, by any chance, then your contributions to this forum are certainly beyond your control. It could only mean something else is speaking through you (demon), trying to discredit the man of God.

          Iwe cimuntu cakuda! Light is defined by the presence of darkness and darkness by the presence of light. The two are essential to each other. Just like god and satan. God will be a useless factor in our lives if there was no Satan. God realized this and created satan – to make himself relevant.

    How can Tanzania, Zimbabwe etc coordinators start collecting registration fees if they were not told to? Tuberclosis (TB) Joshua can only hoodwink people who are desperate. That is the way he operates. Even when these people go to the so kod scoan, they pay in order to see their profit. No dollar no see. It’s John cena.

      Every person believes that the end of the world will come in their time. There is no such thing as the end of the world. It is either the planet earth gets blown away by asteroids or gets scotched by heat from the sun or flooded by the melting of the icecaps that it will change, not the retarded crap that Christians think like drunkardness, promiscuity, etc. Such things will only kill one senseless idiot one at a time but never to be wiped out.

    We know a lot of you who post bad comments do not belong to this life but the under world. You are being used as agents of the under world unknowngly though a lot of you are aware.

    Seek the face of God because the fire will consume you one day, you are not safe.

      How do you know there is an underworld if you are not part of it? And how come they who you scold function in this life if they were not of this life? Think!

    Listen to people’s testimonies Solwe Solwe and with such a name i expect you to see and hear more with faith.

    A lot of things we are seeing nowdays do not belong to this life but from the under world. Do you still doubt satanism? I belong to this life offcourse. Tune to christian voice every Saturday from 08 to 09hrs plus a lot more TV stations then you will know why it is important to be prayerful these days.
