Nigerian Preacher Responds To Ebola Outbreak By Sending 4000 Bottles of His Patented Holy Water

iseecrash2011Nigerian Christian preacher Temitope Joshua is a multi-millionaire wannabe messiah with a devoted following in Africa. Joshua has decided to act to help the desperate situation in Sierra Leone. He sent a private jet to deliver 4,000 bottles of his patented holy anointed water and $50,000 in cash to defeat Ebola. Just what these ebola villages need, holy water from Brother Joshua.


Temitope Balogun Joshua (often called T. B. Joshua) is the founder of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), which runs a Christian television station called Emmanuel TV. He has a reported 1 million followers on Facebook alone and claims to be able to faith heal the sick. He is one of the richest pastors in Nigeria and has claimed the ability to make cancer and HIV disappear as well as the ability to see into the future. This includes the claim to have predicted plane crashes — claims that were challenged as cheap tricks in this video.

His claim to have magic water is not welcomed by doctors who are struggling to convince victims to come to clinics and end their reliance on traditional witchcraft and home remedies.

  1. Definitely a plan of Intelligent Design. We should teach this in our medical schools – or at least we should teach the controversy. Not everyone believes in the so-called Germ Theory of Disease.

  2. Guess where his ‘brand’ of Christianity comes from? American fundamentalist Christian missionaries. Watch “God Loves Uganda” on Netflix, look up Scott Lively, the International House of Prayer to see what has been wrought in these African nations by American fundamental missionaries. Charlatans in the guise of Christian healers selling hate and holy water, imported to Africa.

  3. What a shame…… that his ‘tribe’ no longer practices ‘Cannibalism’.

  4. Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) declared in his church service on Sunday 17th August 2014 that the killer disease Ebola currently ravaging West Africa is from ‘the pit of hell’.

    Last week, Joshua had to debunk a rumour attributed to him that went viral in Nigeria claiming that bathing in salt water would prevent the disease. With over 1.2million followers on
    Facebook and 90,000 YouTube subscribers, it is easy to understand why Joshua is touted to be among Africa’s most influential individuals currently.

    His own country, Nigeria, is being ravaged by Boko Haram terrorists and he has not been able to predict anything or to help the authorities know what will be happening the next moment.

    Next phase, merchandise the hell out of this. Profits are up and business has been good.

  5. Are there still time warps floating around the Earth or something?

    The snake-oil salesmen are so yesterday.

  6. At least it’s patented and not some knockoff! Maybe the good preacher should volunteer at a hospital treating ebola patients and treat the suffering with his patented, cureall ‘holy water.’ At least he did have the decency to send a larger contribution to the cause, but maybe educating his following on how best to avoid the killer disease would have been much more beneficial…..

    Not to get to far off topic, but these religious solutions to a potential pandemic are about as helpful as the ‘free market’ response. Seems a disease with nearly 40 years of history hasn’t found a free market solution. Without government, whose response is lackluster and frighteningly uncoordinated, this disease would simply be considered a market segment opportunity where a cure would be secondary to the fear induced profit potentials for hazmat suits and survival gear. Think of the marketing opportunities…..

    In fact, it’s non-profits such as Doctors Without Borders that are in the middle of the battle and are seeking immediate assistance. Those volunteers are truly the ones who should be highlighted and given support, beyond holy water…..

  7. Prof. JT et all,

    Please take the time to read Dr. Leonard Horowitz’s book entitled ‘Emerging Viruses: AIDS & EBOLA: Nature, Accident, or Intentional’ (1996).

  8. What a complete and total charlatan

    I think he clearly would rather have people die of a terrible disease by taking advantage of people in fear in order to make money. Anointing with snake oil, that is his method of “saving” these people. One has to wonder if these bottles were for healing or advertising.

    Patented holy water? That’s a new one for me. Who’s going to enforce a patent violation? God? I wonder if John the Baptist can claim prior use.

  9. Those affected need to stand on one leg for 23 minutes every other hour on the third Thursday three months apart. I had this revelation delivered in a dream, therefore it’s right. Science and medicine are misleading: only faith in this dream will set us free.

    I’ve chartered several pirates from Somalia to deliver via ocean this profound and divine message. No need to thank me. (But do send $$$.)

    – –

    Just what this crisis needs: another injection of ignorance.
