Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations’ YouTube page popularly known as ‘Emmanuel TV’ has been suspended.
The pastor announced the suspension on his Twitter account. TB Joshua said the channel was suspended over a video said to contain hate speech.
The Pastor called for a review of the suspension, adding that the decision to suspend his channel was done in a haste by Youtube.
His tweet read, “Emmanuel TV YouTube suspension: Our mission is to share the love of God with everyone irrespective of race or religion and we strongly oppose all forms of hate speech.
“We have had a long and fruitful relationship with YouTube and believe this decision was made in haste.”
TB Joshua urged followers on his verified Facebook page to raise awareness over his channel’s suspension on other social media platforms.
He also uploaded the video said to be the cause of the suspension. In the video clip, the pastor speaking to a man possessed by a strange spirit and requested that he come out.
The pastor was heard in the video allegedly containing ‘hate speech’ saying, “God hates sin, not sinners.
“When the Bible says don’t judge so that you will not be judged’, it means we should hate sin, not the sinner because sinners can change. If you have killed a sinner by judging him, there will be no opportunity for change.
“Sinners can be delivered. We should hate the act, not the people because our battle is not against flesh and blood but against the ‘spirit beings’ that cause all these acts.”
