They were not needed at his burial site. To do what? To come and shine? To come and share the glorious deed of the Lord? Why must they be there?
Is there a law that says they must be there? Will their absence prevent Pastor TB Joshua from gaining entrance to heaven? Will that make Pastor TB Joshua go to hell? Those who matter most and who the Lord want to share the glory of that day too were there.
The fact is that they are persona non grata there. What would have been the spiritual value of their presence at the event? Would their presence facilitate the acceptance of the deceased soul to heaven? Why are we making noise about their absence as if they have committed a sin or an offence?
Let’s stop giving unnecessary credence to insignificant act Whatever , Pastor TB Joshua was a thorn in their flesh for being simple, down to earth, pleasant, philanthropic, generous, contented, spartan, non- ostentatious, non – accumulative, non-greedy, not after tithe, no time for private jet.
He just showed the way for them all. He established a behavioural pattern that exposed their vanity And you want them to witness the glorious celebration of their transducer ?
I think the funeral was better without them.
