CHC members rally behind Kong Hee: You will never be alone
Posted by temasektimes on July 12, 2012
Despite the gravity of the charges leveled against him, City Harvest Church (CHC)members have rallied behind their disgraced founder pastor Kong Hee who was charged along with four others last week for misusing up to S$50 million dollars of the church’s funds to further the music career of his singer wife Ho Yeow Sun.
CHC has since issued a public statement proclaiming their belief and support in Kong Hee who told a packed audience during a service last Sunday that he maintained his ‘integrity’.
A post by Kong Hee on his Facebook yesterday triggered an outpouring of support from CHC members as they promise they will not let him walk alone:
“Yes Pastor! You are not alone as we are a Body of Christ that nothing can detach us! I have received many sms from brothers and sisters in other churches both in Singapore and overseas saying that they are praying for you and our church. We are ONE United Body!” – Lawrence Kong Hock Chye
“You are never alone as apart from Jesus never leaving you, you have planted so many seeds that there are hundreds of thousands of your spiritual children out here interceding and praying for you.” – Oliver Tham
“Pastor Kong.. God is with you.. He will never leave you nor forsake you.. we are with you too.. praying for you!” – Karen Kwan
“Yes, Pastor Kong, you are stronger than you think, and you are never alone…You keep company with the wise and you are wise…No one has a talent and hides it, we multiply our talents so that we will be found faithful when we face the LORD…This came to me when I was typing this and I know it holds meaning to you… I LOVE YOU PASTOR KONG…I HAVE BEEN IN CHURCH FOR 23 LONG YEARS AND IT WILL BE SO..” – Constance Wong
Kong Hee was ‘escorted’ by 200 CHC members and supporters to the Subordinate Court last week when he was first charged. The number is expected to rise when the case goes on trial on 25 July.
