Give credit to City Harvest Church for their work of preaching
Posted by temasektimes on July 19, 2012
I personally thinks that the whole saga on Ps KH and his board members in the CBT case has impacted the whole Christians body. It is not CHC that is hurting because the law of tithing is vastly preached in all churches. Many of the preaching on the laws of tithing like the laws of sowing and reaping either touch an greed and/or guilt by the quoting of the verse in Malachi “where the Jews were told that there were robbing God in tithes and offerings and the resulting curses..
Now what happened now is that many gave willing, some gave out of fear, whereas the laws of sowing and reaping gave out of the combination of all above and greed believing that God will supernaturally increase their seed. God does that to some and opened doors to many believers because of Christ and not because of any magic formula.
The perceived CBT on these CHC leaders will impact a lot of givers now because they will definitely question on the validity of the law of tithing that is being imposed on the Christians believers and on the accountability of the church leaders in managing the tithes and offerings received wisely.
I believe in giving to church’s works and to support ministries but not to give out of fear or compulsion or out of the basis that I want something from God i.e. that is for God to prosper me. This law is like binding God’s hand that if I give, then He will have no choice but to prosper me. If that is the case, all CHC members will be like their pastor staying in sentosa cove now wouldn’t that be the case?
Well, regarding Sun Ho’s album, it is definitely not suitable no matter how much claims made by CHC members that these were make believe and not real because as a Pastor she holds the responsibilities to be holy and also to appear to be holy (walking up right with God).
Whereas for Pastor Kong and board, the case is up to the judiciary system and it has nothing to do with all the emotional support by his supporters and/or the condemnation by his opponents. They are still innocent until proven otherwise.
But we should also give credit to CHC for their works in preaching and doing God’s work with the exception on the flaw of their laws of harvest.
