Kong Hee- in Changi Prison Hell-Hole three months now. 3 years and 3 months to go, unless tomorrow’s appeal by Singapore Prosecution is successful and the original eight year term is reinstated.

Dr Phil Pringle head pastor of C3 Global Church based in Sydney Australia: “I told them yeah The Cross-Over project…Just do it…Make Ho Sun Great. Conquer the world. Let her be Asia’s Whitney Houston. But I’d never heard Ho Sun sing. I just took Kong Hee’s word for its greatness. As for the Cross-Over project, again I just took Kong Hee’s word everything was good and fine. I knew Sun Ho likes African American rap music but I didn’t know she likes recording in her bedroom”.

Ho Sun. Christian outreach to black rappers in her bedroom.

CHC Confessions editorial article

Written by a former City Harvest Church Singapore member.

20 November 2015 

“I cannot say that I am without sin and I am definitely in a position where I am personally in need of God’s grace and mercy. But I do feel a need to speak up and comment on the responses and reaction of many of my former CHC friends after the judge’s verdict was read in court. I am coming from an angle of love and truth, not with a malicious and judgmental spirit, so I hope that CHC members will read this with an open heart and mind.

Until now, even after all the accused were found guilty of their charges, the CHC leaders and members are still in strong denial of the crime that had been committed. They are adamant that they have done no wrong, committed no crime but merely facing severe persecution from the local authority which happens to have laws that are very different from the United States. They firmly believe that should this have happened elsewhere in the world like in America, then they would have walked free and be found blameless. They are even getting support from A. R. Bernard and Phil Pringle. Really? Are the supporters as blind or as selective in what they chose to see and believe? Did they truly understand the gravity of the six’s actions? Or did they selectively tune out and focus only on the justification that all was carried out and done in the name of evangelism?

I am not well versed in matters of the law but as an ordinary man/ woman in the streets, I can’t miss and ignore their blatant intent and carefully crafted plan to mislead and deceive the majority of the CHC members. CHC leaders and die-hard KH fans, if you’re reading this, please enlighten me:

1) Why is there a need to resort to being so secretive and complex when evangelizing for Christ? Do you mean God alone for who He is; is not enough to draw all men unto Him? He needs a sneaky cover (some sexually provocative music videos or crap singing, etc) to help Him win souls? You’re greatly mistaken. The lost are not drawn to more filth, more confusion or darkness in order to know God. Quite the contrary, they need God’s light & purity to shine into their lost world. The light alone draws them unto Him.

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.

Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:13-16

In these verses alone, we know that God’s purpose or intention for us is never to act in sneaky ways or be an undercover evangelist. If, as His followers, we have to deviously hide our deeds and deceive even our own brothers and sisters in the House, an alarm should go off that something is very wrong and it is definitely not coming from God?

2) Why is there a need for church leaders and church workers to keep up with the Jones? And bring this to the extreme? No individual gains? Really? You know who you are. Besides the 6 convicted, how many MORE others have conveniently been enriched along the way as CHC grew/ “prospered” through the years (thanks to the generous giving of sacrificial church members)?

How sensitive can you get when you’re living it up while the majority of the ordinary church members scrimped and saved every penny to give sacrificially to the Arise and Build, building fund tirelessly year after year? Let’s put the SGD 50 million aside. How much more of the building fund collected over the past decade has been carelessly and senselessly spent? I shall not name the private birthday parties, personal grooming items, clothes, shoes, properties, and assistants who share our MPs salaries, etc.

YET, you guys insist right down to your last breath that all was done for the purpose and glory of God? How so? Please, I cannot get it no matter how hard I tried to make justifications for all of you because each time I attempted to, the Holy Spirit brings up Mother Theresa to mind and all the evangelical works she had done in her monetary poor life time. Yet, her works live on today and many lives were truly transformed. Now that reminds me on your other claim that many lives were touched and souls were saved by the so-called Cross over project. Really? Are these “souls” for real or again, are they but some made-up numbers like you did with the church’s attendance? How about the many existing church members you have stumbled, hurt and confused? The huge damage you’ve done to the Christian community? The potentially unsaved souls who are now made more wary and repulsive towards Christ? Have you also considered the harm done to the poor families especially the young kids of the convicted? BUT YET, you insist that it is all worth it (I’m quoting some of you) and you’re adamant on the Cross Over. Can’t these same souls whom you claimed to have touched, be won over by God’s simple message of love and no pretense? Without spending that obscene amount of money on fake stardom and enriching some church staff to live like the Jones?

Please stop quoting scriptures to your ridiculous fancy by saying that God’s ways and thoughts are higher than ours. Oh yea, we mere mortals will never understand the deep purpose of the cultural mandate for a cross over. But a cross over project that stumbles many more lives than brings souls to Christ? What did Jesus call the one who was a stumbling block? “Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s” (Matthew 16:23).
I am so sick of hearing the absurd reasoning and justification that many godly and biblical characters went to jail too, for crimes that they did not commit. But the FACT is, the six found guilty DID commit a crime! I love God and Christianity but I must say objectively that the long standing trial has been very fair and in no way were the authorities persecuting the Christians at all; but the deceiving actions and schemes of the six with EVERY intent to hide, deceive and mislead the church cannot be ignored or justified no matter what the mission of the church is. This is NOT in line with God’s character at all! I am no saint and not without sin, but I am aware that we cannot hide our sins from God and the only way to deal with sin is to first acknowledge our wrong doing, seek God’s forgiveness and most of all, “go and sin no more.” We don’t justify our wrong doings and cover it with more lies and deception. The worst that we can do to ourselves is not only to deceive the Holy Spirit (because He can’t be deceived, of course) but to deceive ourselves! This would be the ultimate tragedy for us.

Reading the comments from my former CHC friends on facebook and seeing that even the otherwise smart, intelligent and wise individuals have thrown all their discernment, basic sense of right and wrong out of the window and grasped on to any justified straw that they can find to adamantly argue that their beloved church pastor and leaders have done no wrong deeply saddens me.

Yes, I do not doubt that KH had originally set out with a heart full of love and passion to extend God’s kingdom. But along the way, people can stumble and err. We all do at some point in our lives. What is critical is not the fall, but the needful acknowledgment that we have gone down the wrong path and to get up and get back into the right path where God is waiting.

Only then, can we have real peace from the Holy Spirit. Apart from that, all else only gives us an empty false sense of peace… no matter how you twist and turn the scriptures to fit your agenda and justify your wrong actions.

For those who do not yet know Him… God is not as complex as this CHC case has demonstrated. His love is simple, kind and unconditional. We don’t need elaborate schemes and grand plans to enter into His grace and acceptance. With a pure and simple heart, you will surely find Him. He’s always there waiting.

We will continue to pray for the six convicted and their families. They are still our family in Christ and we do care about them. It’s also a time to check our own lives.”

 

Below are comments I made on this article in January this year:

19 January 2016

Donald Elley:

“Its true that in America or Australia Kong Hee and the five others convicted by the Singapore Courts would not have been convicted or even charged. This is because the Governments and courts in these countries, and other countries like them, do not have laws to protect church members and church funds like Singapore does. Singapore has Charity Trust Laws and specific laws requiring charity and church funds to be used responsibly and for the purpose that they were given.

In this case of Harvest Church the church members sacrificially donated to the Harvest Church Building Fund. The sums involved that were taken secretly and deceptively from the Harvest Church Building Fund and used to promote Kong Hee’s wife Sun Ho’s pop star career were over $50 million US dollars.

The Singapore Courts found this misappropriation illegal and fraudulent under Singapore Law. It’s true pastors like “Doctor” Phil Pringle, who is not really a doctor but a scammer, have tried to demonise the Singapore Courts and Authorities publicly. Its also true that Kong Hee and the other five Harvest church leaders convicted see themselves as being persecuted by the Singapore Authorities and Courts for their Christian faith. This is also not true”.

“Yes, Changi Jail. Not a pleasant resort to spend eight long years or possibly more at. Maybe the Singapore Government should arrest “Doctor” Phil Pringle of C3 Church Sydney next time he flies into Singapore for SLANDER and SEDITION for publicly calling the Singapore Courts and Authorities “Agents of satan” for pursuing and convicting Kong Hee and the five other Harvest Church felons”.
