Being a human you'll face some challenges both physically and spiritually and it takes faith to battle it. If a normal human being could face such challenges you can imagine how tough it would be for Men of God. Pastor T.B Joshua answered some questions pertaining the allutrition of Pastors. On Facebook this evening, Pastor T.B Joshuasent answers to questions that people have been asking. Below is the details of the questions he answered;
'QUESTION - TB Joshua, why are some pastors committing suicide? Did they commit crime? What might they have done to lead to suicide?'
'ANSWER - Are they actually pastors? Because not only must you have God’s Word in order to be a pastor, you must also have God’s Spirit. It is the Spirit that guides, that helps, that monitors. It is only when we are pastors without God’s Spirit that this can happen, because situations will overwhelm us or overtake us without the Spirit. Situations will mislead us. Situations will condemn us. Situations will lead us to more crime without the Spirit. But when you are born of the Spirit, situations may come but the Spirit is there to see you through because He is our Helper, our Advocate, our Protector, our Defender. If God allows it as a trial, no situation can overwhelm or overpower or mislead you (1 Corinthians 10:13).
QUESTION - Why do some pastors renounce their faith?
ANSWER - Did they really have that faith? Because faith is our root and the root always remains in us. It may fail but not utterly. It may fail but not fall off. It always remains in us because it is not just a root but our root in God - faith in God'
