OPINION: TB Joshua – The Bigger Picture

Although the Almighty has no need of human trumpeters to defend His own, recent subjective media reports have compelled me to comment on the ongoing and contentious issue of Prophet T.B. Joshua, a name that can’t seem to leave the news since his well-publicized prophecy concerning the sudden demise of Malawi’s President Bingu wa Mutharika
