Prophet TB Joshua Warns: Pastors not allowed to take sides in Politics

February 5, 2015 12:45 pm
A trending video has surfaced of Prophet T.B. Joshua speaking briefly about the
upcoming Nigerian elections, insisting that pastors should not take
sides. During Joshua’s ministration in his church last month, a lady,
whom he had prophesied to regarding a marital challenge, stated that
those against her have ensure that her husband did not emerge
governorship flag bearer of a Party in the upcoming elections.

But Joshua immediately interjected, “Madam, you are bringing the issue
of politics to the church… There is nothing bad about politics but we
should not allow it to infiltrate the Christianity,” he cautioned,
drawing applause from the crowd.

The cleric then publicly addressed the current political imbroglio
affecting many pastors. “My members – whatever political party you
belong – let it from your heart,” he counselled. “I should not allow it
to infiltrate the ministry. I pray for all of you. I love all of you.
Are you ? Are you ? Are you Labour? You are my people.”

He continued, “The nature of our job does not permit us to take sides;
we should pray for everyone and let God be the final. After you have
done the job, God will still mark it; you should allow God to mark it.”

Joshua’s statement stands in contrast to the position of the Christian
Association of (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of
(PFN) as recent reports suggest that some of them have chosen to endorse
the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan.

A source even alleged that the Pastors collected money to support Jonathan against Muhammadu Buhari.
