City Harvest Church stands by Pastor Kong Hee

Posted by temasektimes on June 29, 2012

Despite the gravity of the criminal charges slapped on him, City Harvest Church (CHC) will continue to stand by its disgraced founder and pastor Kong Hee (pic left).

Kong Hee was charged together with four other CHC members on Wednesday for allegedly misusing S$50 million dollars of church funds to further the music career of his singer wife Ho Yeow Sun.

In a statement issued on its website yesterday, Mr Aries Zulkarnain, the executive pastor and a founding member of the church since its start 23 years ago, says that the church stands with the members involved.

“The people currently in the news are our pastors and trusted staff and leaders who have always put God and CHC first. As a church we stand with them and I believe fully in their integrity. Pastor Kong is still our Senior Pastor.”

Mr Zulkarnain added that COC has confirmed that Mr Kong Hee, the senior pastor, and Mr Tan Ye Peng, the deputy senior pastor will continue to preach at the church and reiterates that church activities are not affected by the case.

“City Harvest Church will continue to do its work. Our services and cell group meetings will carry on as usual. As a church we will continue to take care of our members and our community. We will not stop doing God’s work.”

    “………..We will not stop doing God’s work.”

    As as BS as ever, good luck to the members.

    and still continue collecting donations and tithes?

    The church members are now holding God ransom by continuously texting him, forcing him to take action and create miracle.

    This is similar to cult behavior. The followers are brainwashed to believe the charismatic leader to be more powerful and pure than the God they believe in. I am pretty sure if Kong Hee ask his followers to release Sarin gas to MRT, they might do so.

    Highly educated people don’t seem to understand. Any unathorised withdrawal of money from a bank account ( for purposes not specified in the constitution) and then re-imbursed later , no matter how soon, still constitute an offence. The greater the amount the more serious it is…. walau, the present amount is about 50% of the society’s assets of $100m.
    No need to talk and talk, just sue the COC, if you may. You may get 50millions fold in returns of damages.

    Its incredible as though cult like!

    Credits to Kong Hee for being so Charismatic to win people over.

    Having said that He will never be a Lee Lip Hong, who owns up, serve his term and move on with life.

    Well let’s wait for the verdict and see what happens then.
    And then ALL can PRAY to God to forgive his sins.

    Dear Mr Aries ZulkarnainIt, I think it is not so much as to stand by Pastor Kong Hee, I think you are more concerned and fearful that upon admitting that Pastor Kong Hee and 4 other CHC members are indeed misusing S$50 million dollars of church funds to further the music career of his singer wife Ho Yeow Sun, that your CHC members would leave and their tithe would be gone too.

      Can’t more agree with you!
      I’m interested to know how many people will attend CHC’s Sunday services this weekend.

        Cant agree more with you…I’m interested to know if the media will attend CHC’s services this Sunday. Then they can see the Kon man in action. Let’s hope that they will not be persuaded to donate..haha.

    CHC is obviously a cult group since they are a non-denominational church group which does not belong to any of the Christians Denomination Church!

    Btw, which GOD are they worshipping in CHC? Seems like God Kong Hee & God Sun Ho instead…Jesus Christ!

  12. ex-chc said

    did you know that they give offering and tithes during cell group too? means you have to give money twice a week! expensive church!

  13. Remember the followers of Jim Jones in Guayna who told his followers to commit suicide so that they can go to heaven.

  14. wtf is happening here.. said

    Praise the Lord Helluja…

    By the way have you given your donations yet?

  15. tshace said

    Many CHC members have donated much $$$ over the years and therefore there is where their hearts are.

    Matthew 6:21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

    I know monks live in temple, not in $9.3 millions penthouse or $28,000 p/m house (neighbours with hollywood actors or actresses). sure there are good sheeps and bad (black) sheeps in every societies, everywhere…… unfortuately the leaders of CHC are black sheeps in this case, wake up you (followers)!

  17. nizegirl said

    If I had donated my tithes to CHC, I will lead a class action and sue for my money including interest. Afterall, there have breached the Church contract by misusing the funds.

    Hope the Court speed up sentencing before they(KH + his ugly, despicable,slutty wife) stash the balance of the $$$ loot elsewhere. Who knows what they have in US? Properties galore maybe??

  18. Ron said

    If I am in Spore, I will start attending CHC but not donate, not wave my arms, etc. I want to be there to see what is the sensation and why are people so taken in by the preaching. Yeah, maybe it is good to be there to relax but still not be donating anything. I hope there is free good and beverages too. Maybe free transport.

    Maybe, they should start using the song… “Stand by Your Man” in their concert…oops church session.

    I hope my comment won’t be deleted!
    If I am right, text me/email years later when things come to pass, ok?

    Here’s the BULLET POINT, very important:
    Same thing is also happening in Western Australia (perth).

    -Mega churches.
    -Pastors untouchables.
    -Every single layer of life group, zone pastors will threaten new members who dare question the words/wisdom of the senior pastor!
    - Here, they even take $$$ from Lottery also!

    Check the space!

    GOD is Sovereign!
    HE still does cleanse the temple of the fish sellers, as Jesus did 2000 years ago!

    And HE’s going to do it again, in USA, in Perth!

    A relatively unknown preacher in Perth came to my church camp & preach this – God is going to DECONSTRUCT this people who’ve invested years into building man -made stuff! And the PURE GOLD will then come through! Talk about REFINER’s Fire!

    Blessings, & have a great weekend
    Watch the space for Perth, Western Australia.

    I can’t say much – otherwise, they will also sue me!
    This fella also very powderful!

    VENGEANCE is mine, says the LORD!
    So, GOD – you are omniseeing, omniscient!
    Your call.

    your little son in Perth.

    God’s Work???
    I think that includes harvesting more of the members’ money.

  24. Lin2012 said

    First of all, the verdict is yet UP – so don’t comment as if it is definite fact that Pst Kong & team are in the wrong. Come on man.. Secondly, we are not cult. The reason we do what we do is that bcos we love our senior pastor, who have taught us so much in life,.We now show support to him & the team when they now in tribulation. Third thing, please don’t use your past cases to make it as if it is definite that Kong he is in the wrong. Come on…if later Pst Kong is found not guilty, can you all post your apologize of all your negative comments that you have posted?! Can you all do that?
