Jesus of Nazareth and TB Joshua of Nigeria may have lived in differing times and places but this week readers on our Facebook Page brought the two together in a spirited log of comments.

Omphemetse Bk Sethora: I wonder which Bible those who are choosing not to believe are reading. Those that do not have faith in TB Joshua for sure are in the kingdom of darkness.

Zoe Setshwane: Are people saying “Joshua is the answer” instead of Jesus? Alas!

Phumzile Phumie Seane: Zoe, people are certainly in the dark.

Botlhe Jb Pansiri: I believe in God. How can a man like me be the answer to my problems?

Dinny Boston: Is Joshua now replacing the only Man who can walk on water?

Mercy Tapela: He is not replacing Jesus, he is a prophet just like other prophets.

Omphemetse Bk Sethora: Such blindness! It was never said seek Joshua as the light,that is the role of Jesus. Joshua is just a messiah. It would be better if those that knew less spoke less.

 Fifi Veronica Moketsi: He is a true man of God. And if you don’t believe his prophecies then you have no faith whatsoever in The Most High God. God speaks through him, he is not God nor Jesus. All the negativity is not going to change him but make him stronger.

 LaNeo Maphosa: Follow God, and follow Jesus- he is the way, the truth, and the light. Ministries and miracles are not that important.
Prophets and Profits
In tune to the discussion over the ever controversial Temitope Balogan (TB) Joshua our reader- Kgabo Sedibelo warned of profit chasing prophets:
I don’t think any human being should be making money using God’s name.

This man’s so-called prophecies make no sense. Anybody who has basic information on the things he said could make similar wild speculations and say he is prophesying!

This man was communicating with the late Malawian president, so he knew he was sick but predicted his death as if it was a prophecy but did nothing to help him! When Jesus saw hungry people, he didn’t ask for payment before he could feed them! He just increased the food to feed them! Joshua would ask for payment and ask you to wait for some help down the line! Crazy! Jesus refused when the devil offered him riches of the world if he knelt down to him.

These false prophets have confused so many people that they are now presented as the gateway to God? Amazing! How many people are pledging 10% of their earnings to these people for as long as they live? Is that God’s instruction for people to do this in His name?”
Cry Not Beloved Children
Coming to the rescue of school children threatened to be failed by frustrated teachers, readers this week angrily branded teachers as “evil” and vowed to support the Government should the teachers implement their plan.
Rarefri: If this is the consensus that all teachers reached, and if in fact everyday of their being, they plan to sabotage our children’s education, I believe they are evil. More evil than the term stands for…. Don’t make children suffer just because you can’t negotiate with your employers.

DON: This is ludicrous. I agree times are hard and Government is not helping but this is madness! If these teachers go ahead with such a crazy idea, I would totally support Government for hitting back with any drastic measures.

Rabie: I can not believe what I am reading. These teachers are heartless. Fight with Government not with the children.
Tubeless: They should be fired and never rehired. They are cruel and should never be trusted with the lives of our children again. We invest a lot of money on the kids and the teachers happened to have convinced us that they are qualified to teach. Now it turns out, all they want is the money. They don’t care what happens to the kids. They will even plot a scheme to make them fail. This is not acceptable.

    most of us people are blind.there are people who are sent by God that do his work.All the people that were either healed ny Jesus were the people who believed in God,who saw the miracles he performed and believed gore he was a true son of God..TB Joshua was sent by God to do his work,to teach,heal and save many lost souls out there.a church needs money to maintain itself.why dont you talk of the many people that Joshua donates food to,the many disabled people he has sent to schools,universities,taken care of……our lack of believ is leading us oneway….HELL!

    Le seka la dirisa Jesus and TB Joshua as if they are the same without facts.Nobody is going to Hell for failure to believe in mordern day prophets but we will go there if we do not believe in biblical doctrines.So says or implies….MATHEW 7:15-23 and 2 CORINTHIANS 11:13-15.

    Baebele e bua gore e tlaa re mo motlheng wa bofelo bangwe ba tlaa lela ba bua gore, “Morena, a ga re a ntsha mewa e e maswe ka Leina la gago? A ga re a fodisa batho ka leina la gago?” etc. Ke bone boJoshua ba go buiwang ka bone ba. FALSE PROPHETS. Ba ikhumisa fela ka go bakela batho mahutsana, ga go na bomodimo bope mo go bone. Lemoga gore Satane le ene o na le maatla, though he is not all-powerful like God. Joshua o dirisiwa ke Satane, full stop.
