Renowned Nigerian Pastor T.B. Joshua has be threatened to be taken to court by a front-line Islamic lecturer, author and conference speaker, Sheikh Hussaini Yusuf Mabera. Because, the pastor’s constantly describe Jesus Christ to be God, according to a Facebook post on 13 march, this year.
The Nigerian Islamist Sheikh Mabera who is also a debater, admitted that he regularly watched Joshua’s popular television channel Emmanuel TV. He began in a Facebook post saying,"I am filing a case to the Federal High Court of Nigeria against Pastor T.B. Joshua and co-pastors for speaking a lie against Jesus Christ by calling him God,"
"I was completely aghast when I heard the 'so-called' Prophet T.B. Joshua of Emmanuel TV referring Jesus Christ as God in the presence of thousand members of his church, coupled with professors, doctors, reverend fathers and mothers, pastors and bishops."
Sheikh Mabera, who has a school where he trains other Muslims in the art of defending their faith, says from his own research, "the Bible itself is replete with evidence contradicting the deification of Jesus Christ, he concluded that T.B. Joshua and his ilk lack "proper understanding" of Scriptural truths.
"As I was watching T.B. Joshua speaking through Emmanuel TV and his audience helplessly watching and listening to his accumulated lies and unfounded praise-singing directed at Jesus, I almost cried with automatic alacrity when he said that Jesus is Almighty God. My conclusion was that both TB Joshua and other Christians actually read their Bible without proper understanding of what they are reading."
The fiery Islamic advocate who also said, there are millions of facts from the Scriptures and other rational facts that authentically proved that Jesus does not have even the least qualification of being God, quoting several Scriptures to support the fact that Jesus Christ was a "servant of God", not God Himself.
Mabera ended his post by declaring Joshua was “deceiving and misguiding” his “innocent followers” with “preposterous lies”.
“Let us meet in the court of law and debate it out. Enough is Enough,” the statement on Facebook ended.
Meanwhile, Yusuf Mabera has debated several Christian clerics on various topics, regularly traversing the shores of Nigeria with his message, according to information available online.
Emmanuel TV station of Pastor T.B. Joshua recently became the first Christian ministry YouTube channel in history to surpass 500,000 subscribers.
