Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams says he refused calls on him to condemn famous Nigerian Prophet, T. B. Joshua following the death of four people in a holy water stampeded at the Nigerian preacher’s church in Ghana a few months ago.
“Somebody called me recently and said what do you think about…people rushing to a place over holy water and dying and all that; we need you to say something; you have to speak up; you have to make a statement and I said ‘no’, I don’t make comments on matters like that”, Duncan-Williams told his congregation in a recent sermon which was replayed on Radio XYZ’s ‘Voice of Action’ Christian Programme on Sunday July 21.
He said: “I am not called to insult and to attack people”.
The General overseer of the Christian Action Faith Ministries said he believed that: “That which is of God shall stand and what is not of God shall fail so I don’t insult people, I don’t attack people, whether they are genuine or false, it is not my job to attack and to insult them. You leave them to time. For the Bible says ‘what thing so ever God does shall be forever’, so anything that is of God shall stand and what is not of God is just a matter of time, it withers away”.
According to him, he told T. B. Joshua’s critics that: “Please don’t drag me into any situation to criticise, insult or attack anybody”.
On Sunday May 19, 2013, Four Christians died during a stampede for ‘holy water’ at T. B Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) at the Spintex Road.
The stampede started when the huge congregation rushed for the free holy water from the Nigerian Prophet Prophet’s spiritual Lieutenants.
About 30 people also sustained scathing injuries in the stampede which made both local and international headlines.
