Though that was well before the start of this blog, we’ve explained long before now on TB Joshua watch that the words of TB Joshua would be greatly revered for Generations to come as the sacred writings of the last day’s messiah.
This we heralded not forgetting to trust Satan to live up to his reputation as the accuser of the brethren, he has not changed and he makes his very presence known on tbjoshuawatch even by accusing the Child of prophecy, the Savior of the World, the last days messiah – the man in the synagogue, a trend worthy of note in their affronts is how these accusations are always leveled against him when it comes to works of wonder that tend to defy the logic of their imagination. For instance, when we praise God for his miracles they accuse him of stage management, When we praise God for his disciples, they accuse him of en slaving people, when we praise God for His charitable deeds they accuse Him of being open about it, when we praise God for His world prophecies, they accuse him of predicting through chance, when we praise God for His personal prophecies they accuse him of being fed with the information, and more recently now, for our praise to God for His divine messages they accuse Him of plagiarism… What should a man do whose accusations are without end? – at this rate, the man in the synagogue would be standing on trial even long after his departure, and what is their ground for this allegation? finding the source of some of TB Joshua’s oldest “words of wisdom” as originated from several American evangelists they take strict offense as though he claimed to be the initiator which He never did. Yet – the message they’ve communicated is quite simple – any pastor you hear from hence speaking words you’ve before heard from another pastor or read in a Christian book (without stated reference) must be charged shamelessly guilty of plagiarism in their opinion, though they never stipulated a proper sentence for the guilty, that would thus fill up the measure of sin of their predecessors – the pharisees.
Let readers be on their guard against such “thoughts” because they spring from
the tempters will, they have so easily forgotten that Jesus himself quoted a myriad of “sayings” of the prophets who came before Him in his teachings, and today Christian faithful’s worldwide hold those words in highest regard, not because they were spoken by those prophets but because Jesus also legitimized them as being the inspired words of God being greater than them all.
These little known evangelists from whom they claimed TB Joshua sourced some of his oldest quotes perhaps did no more than teach the bible with these “sayings“, – They may have only taught them and remained obscure, but TB Joshua continued from there by proving them, living by them and making them work. Lending enormous credence to their words as divinely inspired. Where they stopped marked his starting point of which he now stands accused, now coming on to judge his humble beginnings in learning off of his distant colleagues in ministry as “fraudulent” is unarguably preposterous. such a foul judgment can only come from minds who are less concerned about the advancement of God’s kingdom and more concerned by who takes the Glory and Credit for words spoken by the Holy Ghost – When there’s absolutely no reason for anyone giving or taking credit, because words spoken by the Holy Ghost don’t take the credit. As Apostle Paul said: neither he who plants nor waters is anything but God who makes it grow. If at all TB Joshua’s name comes under the quotes you’ve mentioned above or is attributed to him, it does not portray him taking the credit, but is done in the sense of him authenticating that word as authored by the Holy Ghost giving the legitimacy of God’s messiah.
Check out their alleged list of plagiarized sayings and clearly notice that the lot of these so-called “plagiarized quotes” are the ones he started with in His ministry, from which he has now matured into the deepest level quotes we hear from his lips today. No one builds something on nothing. These can be regarded as the “sayings” which became the fountain stone of his life and ministry.
Even the stable from which Jesus started his earthly journey was not owned by him, but he did not stay there he moved on. Critics like this would have further accused Jesus taking the donkey (for the triumphant entry) of stealing and if in their power, charge him for grand theft.
But the question that then arises here also is why attack his “oldest” quotes? Which only have been humble learning from his colleagues he admired at the earliest stages of his ministry? When recent thousands of them have been released? Can they come forward and prove any and I quote “any” of his recent messages on LOVE, RECONCILIATION, and CONVERSION to be plagiarized work? A very ridiculously shameless attempt at discrediting God’s “anointed one” for this generation
TB Joshua himself has severally talked about how he spends time watching other ministers at a distance, how he observed and learned from their weaknesses and strengths – the above regard is perhaps inclusive of the areas he learned even at a distance being not privileged of having a mentor. But however they were sourced, of one thing we cannot dispute, that It is his practical demonstration of God’s power that has taught of the value of these “words” and the name Jesus. And just as a commenter on their site wisely asked, Aside from the quotes in question, are his MIRACLES, PROPHECIES and DELIVERANCE’S also plagiarized? we await their response.
