Former presidential aide and author, Reno Omokri has slammed people who made insensitive comments about the death of popular clergyman, T.B. Joshua.
The founder of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), Temitope Balogun Joshua died in the night of Saturday, June 5, and ever since, the news of his demise has stirred reactions across the world.
While many mourn his death some others, especially fellow pastors, have come out to criticize the life of the preacher.
Addressing T.B Joshua’s critics, Reno stated that it is ‘unChristlike’ to judge people after their demise when they cannot defend themselves.
While quoting biblical scriptures, the writer emphasized on the need to be sensitive in dealing with peoples’ demise.
He said: “Whilst he lived, I never said anything about him. Neither good nor bad. Not because I did not like him, but because I do not know where his powers came from. So, rather than say what I do not know, I kept mute. But now that he is dead, let him be.
“It is unChristlike to celebrate death or mock the departed. But beyond being unChristlike, it is also ungentlemanly to wait until someone is dead before you attack him.
If you must attack, do so while he yet lives, that he may have a chance to defend himself. Scripture asks us to “rejoice with those who rejoice, mourn with those who mourn”- Romans 12:15.
