As news of the controversial Nigerian law banning same-sex marriages continues to make headlines worldwide, renowned Prophet T.B. Joshua has spoken out on the contentious issue.
Through a new initiative on his ministries official Facebook page in which the cleric responds to peopleâ€™s questions in an interactive session, he addressed the much debated question on same-sex marriage.
â€œJudge not, so that you will not be judged,â€ Joshua began, citing Matthew 7:1 for Scriptural backing. â€œWe should talk to people to be saved and not to die. I mean, we should talk salvation, not condemnation. The Bible is my standard,â€ he continued in the post to almost 900,000 fans.
â€œIf my parents were one, I would not have been given birth to,â€ he proceeded poignantly. â€œThose that are asking this question â€“ if your parents were one, you would not have been given birth to. You that are reading me â€“ if your parents were one, you would not be reading this today. God bless the reader and the hearer.â€
