Zimbabwe health minister warns people not to visit TB Joshua

The Associated Press are reporting that Zimbabwe health minister David Parirenyatwa is warning citizens to not go to Nigeria to visit faith healers such as TB Joshua, for fear of catching Ebola and bringing it back to Zimbabwe.

Interesting that when the rubber hits the road, there’s really not a great deal of belief in the healing claims of TB Joshua, otherwise why avoid a famed “healer” to protect yourself from a dangerous sickness?

  1. Wow . What has TBJoshua to do with ebiola ! Mr minister did hear yoi well ? You are a sick person who will definately need the man of God in future and my the 0good 0lord forgive you . The man of God is real and leave him alone

      Without knowing the entire story this blog may seem a little strange. But the problems are that Tb Joshua bragged on and on about his anoibting water being tje answer for ebola. The boasting is a sin and Tb Joshua does it to glorify himself not Jesus. While he does have some success healing the sick he is far from having 100% accuracy but yet misleads all into thinking he can cure all. Some people will sell what they have including houses to go to scoan and don’t get healed.
      Several of us including myself were hurt by the anointing water.

  2. So glad a leader in Africa is finally standing up and warning people about these tricksters. The *last* place anyone should be wanting to go in Lagos when there’s an ebola outbreak is a place like SCOAN (or any other “deliverance” church where there is copious bodily excretion of various types happening during exorcisms, crowded conditions, and zero regard for basic concepts of science and medicine).

  3. You people make yourselves look real desperate with this article. The health minister didn’t even mention TB Joshua specifically, but faith healers in general. Hardly ‘rubber hitting the road’ or whatever you want to call it. The truth is that many people from all around the world are still flocking to the scoan giving testimonies and receiving healing, deliverance, breakthrough, etc. and there is nothing you can do to stop them.

    • The article from the associated press specifically mentioned TB Joshua, even if the health minister didn’t specifically name him, I think it’s quite clear who he’s talking about

  4. May the Lord bless us all…..whether T.B Joshua is a false prophet or not we all don’t have the spiritual authority to castigate, mock or condemn another man for we are only human flesh bound to sin. Case in point, seek the kingdom of God and stop this campaign for it will reward you with nothing but void in your spirit. Time is running out for this kind of campaign, for how long are you going to squander your precious time on earth condemning T.B Joshua. When are you ever going to seek your salvation?

    • @ Julius,

      Nobody is condemning anybody. Your word choice is false and incorrect. When a thief is caught, judge be and scrutiny must take place. When a murderer is caught judgement is just. When someone trespasses we apply the law, butttttt……. We apply grace and forgiveness for those that repent and show mercy on those that show genuine remorse.

      2 Corinthians 2:5-11 KJV
      [5] But if any have caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all. [6] Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many. [7] So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him , and comfort him , lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. [8] Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him. [9] For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things. [10] To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it , for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; [11] Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

      So from the Word of God we see many instruction, so also the Word of God instructs us to investigate those that deceive, lie, scam and offend. When we offend we will also be called to be accountable, so we are geared and commanded to do likewise.

      One can hide behind the banner of the words “love, forgiveness” and still lead people astray in their actions. Shall those not be called to repent and change their lives and do another way that pleases God. Why should we let perpetrators get away ? Only when they change their ways.

    So you guys visited SCOAN and when you did not receive your healing/deliverance you then decided to develop this blasphemous webpage? How sad? You are missing an opportunity to prove your faith in God. I also visited SCOAN in Dec and did not receive healing for my affliction. But you know what’s the difference? Even though I was disappointed I have decided to pray, fast and spend time on the word even more. During this time I have grown in the word and received revelations and my spiritual life has changed completely. I thank God for not healing me because I was not ready and would have went back to the world and continued with the destructive lifestyle I was living. I therefore urge you to shut this thing down and go work on your relationship with Christ before its too late. You will be surprised that the next time you return to SCOAN you might receive a mother of all miracles.

    • @ Sid,

      “During this time I have grown in the word and received revelations and my spiritual life has changed completely.”

      I have a personal direct question to you ?

      By whose standards did you grow into the Word, personal revelations, your spiritual life ? Are they your own ? Someone else’s ? So which is the bar for such thing ? It seems to me that you like to tap on your own shoulder of how progressed you are ! Heed what the Word of a God says !

      Psalm 49:6-18 KJV
      [6] They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; [7] None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: [8] (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:) [9] That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption. [10] For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others. [11] Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names. [12] Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish. [13] This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah. [14] Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling. [15] But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah. [16] Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased; [17] For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him. [18] Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.

      James 4:13-17 KJV
      [13] Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: [14] Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. [15] For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. [16] But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. [17] Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

Jesus ask the twelve,Simon peter answering him,Lord,to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life…you can continue till to verses70. And at Luke 10:1-2 after this The Lord appointed seventy- two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every two and place where he has about to go.and on Luke 10:17 the seventy- two returned with joy…carry on till 20 Jesus said: but do not rejoice that the spirit submit to you but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.and on book of john 6:70 Then Jesus replied, have I not chosen you,the twelve?yet one of you is a devil!(he meant judas,the son of Simon is chariot,though one of the twelve,was later so betray him) people of God never mind some people what they are writing,some of them they have gone too fare,and they do not know,they already backslide they know were they came from and where they are going,they seduced people like them,am not tb joshua member
