The article below is written by someone who lost a family member in the 2014 building collapse. They are responding to the SCOAN propaganda put out by the African News Network under the guise of journalism. It gives some interesting insights into how this “documentary” may have come about.
Firstly I would like to thank TBJWatch for keeping the public informed of the goings at SCOAN, particularly us the families that lost our loved ones in the 12 Sep 2014 SCOAN building collapse.
As you can see, it is a pity that man could behave unashamedly in this manner when there has been loss of lives and limbs. But, coming back to Christianity, if there were people who could stand up and accuse Jesus Christ, the TRUTH publicly, and one person could even be found in Christ’s midst who collaborated with the works of darkness to KILL THE TRUTH, Christ Jesus, how difficult would it be in these days to find a person who would take money to continue speaking against the Truth?
SADLY THE TRUTH NEVER DIES… EVEN WHEN BURIED, IT COMES BACK TO LIFE.
It has been well documented that the “man of gods” from Nigeria hands out cash to people to buy their conscience. Being in touch with other families that suffered the same fate as mine (losing a family member), we know that once a family member sets foot at SCOAN they are given cash, directly from the hand of TB Joshua. It is called a gift. Before we even knew the fate of my late brother, 4 days after the accident, when my other brother and the widow went to SCOAN, they were surprised that the “man of God” never had time to talk to them but only handed a gift to them before they returned to South Africa. It is never said why the gift is handed to people. After all, a gift is a gift, right?
All the families I know and I am in touch with, the only interaction they have with the “man of God” when they went to SCOAN was the moment of gifts hand overs. Otherwise his little people organise tours and brainwashing sessions for the visitors. The tragedy here is the fear the families have of the man which paralyses them from speaking or acting against him. Well…, coupled with the continuous harassment of his little people…
Before the 12 Sep 2015, I had calls from certain journalists who wanted to get information on my family and our position in view of the anniversary. It is at that time that I was informed that SCOAN was organising for “journalists” to go to Nigeria and “see for themselves…”
The thing is, SCOAN had prevented journalists from going to their church since the day of the incident, according to the journalist that I can’t disclose here for obvious reason…All of a sudden, they invite and host journalists and news channels that produce the same material as the ones regularly posted on SCOAN’s site.
Fortunately, I know of journalists that refused to go because they knew exactly what the trip was all about. Such people will continue to uphold the journalistic integrity. It is a shame that ANN7 chose, in the face of the gravity of this tragedy, to take the offer and be a mouthpiece of SCOAN… Leaving the widows and orphans that want the whole truth and justice voiceless… Well, at ANN7 it seems victims don’t deserve a voice, only those who consider themselves blessed because someone died due to criminal negligence of someone else…
We will certainly see what they are position will be when we get to the end of this case and find justice, at least for my brother. I will provide an update of the case once there’s newsworthy progress.
May God bless all the people that submit to Him as channels for the truth to come to light, not only about the sad loss of 12 Sep 2014, but also about His Word and Kingdom.
