There is a lot of scuffle in the Synagogue Church Of Nations as the congregation refuse the leadership of Evelyn Joshua. The congregation say the appointment of Joshua's wife is not acceptable. They claim that TB Joshua died knowing that his church will be run by one of the Pastors. Indeed it's surprising to see feuds in places where holiness is being claimed. We all know that TB Joshua claimed to be the man of god. So why are his people fighting for the throne.
Other members calling themselves Global Congress of Synagogue have questioned the the approval of Evelyn Joshua as their leader of the church. When you read the Bible Jesus put straight that if Satan fights himself how will he stand strong. The same with the government how will it stand firm or a soccer team how will it win if the team fights together.
It's becoming a norm this days to see churches fighting. For example here in South Africa we have Shembe church having factional fights but another another legal battle between two factions of Christians in Kerala that lasted for over a century came to a close in 2017. When the Supreme Court delivered its final order. But the war for the control of thousands of parishes and their churches and properties spilled into the streets this week.
Tension prevailed in Ernakulam on Thursday when, armed with the Supreme Court order that had gone in their favour, the Orthodox faction of Christians decided to take over the Pivoram St Mary’s church from the Jacobite group.
My opinion tells me that if church pastors can stop claiming church belongs to them all this fightings can stop. But because people want to show power and pride that's why fightings will not stop. How can this fightings be stopped.
Whats your say?
