On 18th October, 2011 BBC released disturbing report about several recorded deaths after the HIV and Aids healing claims in various churches and disingenuously mentioned TB Joshua’s ministry as one of such ministries likely to encourage HIV and aids sufferers to drop their medication without proof, SKY news took on the challenge and sent undercover agents who had hidden cameras tucked in their jackets to SCOAN UK as AIDS sufferers, presumably because they felt the BBC report didn’t have a nice ring to it following their lack of real evidence to implicate SCOAN. Kind of like a competition between them on who would better cover the story. There was even section of the video where the news agents having recorded all they wanted to without being discovered confronted the church’s evangelists saying the message they were spreading was a dangerous one. And what message. The Message that “Jesus can Heal HIV and Aids”.
A CAMPAIGN AGAINST TB JOSHUA OR AGAINST THE CHRISTIAN FAITH?
A balanced view on this case wouldn’t take this issue to be a personal challenge against TB Joshua, although that’s just what it looks like on the outside, but the fact is that the bigger picture comes across as being not just about TB Joshua, but a clear attack on the Healing power of Jesus Christ. The voice over for the video is heard to have said:
“There is plenty of evidence that faith can help people deal with issues but here faith was being abused”
(Abuse here means actually believing and telling people that God can heal)
