Words From The Wise: Joshua Maponga

“Believing is worth nothing. Believing is just a bucket of dogma; it does not change the price of bread. Show me what you do with your beliefs, then I’ll tell you if it is practical or not. Believing in the trinity does not add to your days, does not put bread on your neighbor’s table, does not stop the violence against women.”

– Joshua Maponga


Joshua Maponga is a motivational speaker, philosopher, community leader, musician, and social entrepreneur. He received a degree in Philosophy (BA Theology) and Personal Ministries from Andrews University.
