Popular Nigerian cleric TB Joshua has described pastors who constantly attack him as discontented people.
TB Joshua, who founded the Lagos-based Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, which attracts people from all over the world, has been severely criticized for many years by several Nigerian pastors who accuse him of using strange powers to heal people of virtually all sicknesses only by laying hands on them.
Meanwhile TB Joshua says he has no time to engage in jealous acts, adding that "attacks come from those who are not contented, those who are not happy about what they are, what they can achieve and what they can do".
The 50-year-old cleric asked,
"When you are contented and you’re worth what God says you’re, and you have what God says you have, and you can do what God says you can do, what else again?"
And then TB Joshua continued:
"And when you’re limited in certain areas and you see someone do what you would like to do, definitely envy and jealousy set in."
The pastor also claimed that he prayed for those who attack him, because "what they attack me for is what they would like to do but they cannot do it."
