Kong Hee asks Jesus to be his ‘shepherd’ today

Posted by temasektimes on July 25, 2012

Disgraced founder of City Harvest Church (CHC) Kong Hee has asked Jesus to be his ‘shepherd’ today as he faces three charges of criminal breach of trust and falsifying accounts in court today.

In a post on his Facebook this morning, Kong Hee wrote:

His post brought an outpouring of support from fellow CHC members who portrayed the case as a battle ‘belonging’ to their ‘Lord’.

Meanwhile, former CHC finance director Serina Wee has been slapped with 10 charges this morning, four related to falsifying accounts and six to criminal breach of trust.

      Flaw logic.
      This a classic case whereby the means cannot justify the end.

      Would you kill a human life in order to save 10 others ?
      The means cannot justify the end.

      Therefore, no matter how good KH had been to his flock or how well the gospel has spread through his wife influence he cannot be justify if he had broken the law.
      The means cannot justify the end.

      I hope justice will be served – rewards or PUNISHMENTS for those who deserve it

    • Brainwashed and blind support said

      Great support – done good? Really? More like great brainwasher – brainwashed.

  2. Realist said

    Pastor KH should say if he is to be convicted for Christ’s sake then so be it.

  3. ngpy said

    If you people do not believe in actual facts and the truth, go carry on to be mislead. Hope all who are being mislead wake up and have their directions and to the correct path, going to whichever directions or path is the choice is their own. TAKE CARE, GOOD LUCK AND GOOD FORTUNE TO ALL.

  4. hachoo said

    As perceived, first they uses public donations (tax free) to fund their high life. NOw being charged, they uses the same to fund their defence to protect their high life. Wonder what is next ? The CHC supporters should be able to see through all these or are they just having blind faith.

    Kong Hee decided to follow Jesus at last. God be praiseD
    Jesus had agonised. “Kong Hee, why did you forsook me and seek the bling bling of Lucifer? You can love HYS. But do not be tempted to please her instead of guiding her. Have you not preached the word of God. You have let temptation to please a woman. I SHALL BE YOUR SHEPHERD FROM NOW ON, HANDS ON. OK?”

    • jf said

      Lucifer is the Prince of Light, another name of Satan. Many church members don’t know about Lucifer, aka Satan.

      • jf said

        What downgrade? This is mother of all mansions in Singapore. Now the Home Minister must protect KH with many more guards. Before only CHC members kena pay, now all taxpayers kena. All thanks to Jesus’ garmen… aka The Robe.

    KH as a pastor shd know better that Christ Jesus preaches uprightness and integrity of character, repentance with a contrite heart for wrongdoings, therefore acknowledgement of sins committed with genuine intention of turning over a new leaf, and honouring God always with a humble heart as against using His Name in vain.
    KH shd rightly admit his wrongdoings in court to accept with contrition and humility the sentence to be passed for his offences. If jailed or whatever, he shd thereafter make peace with himself and all around him to start a fresh chapter of his life. He shd not be mired in his past misdeeds and hope to escape the punishment befitting his offences as to be decided by the judge. Furthermore, he shd not mislead his followers to call on God to let his bitter cup rightly due to him to pass him by. Rather, he shd pray that his jail term or whatever shd serve as an eye-opener and deterrent to any who wld follow his misguided ways, that crime does not pay.

    • Observer said

      your brain got water issit? Admit what wrongdoing…admit liao means go changi cove leh. Of course die also dun admit lah.. if you, you will admit meh? Don’t talk nonsense lah. Die also won’t admit.

    • jacque lee said

      All the die hard followers are like Osama Bin Ladin’s jihadists. They have invested so much of themselves that come what may they have to believe that he is leading the path to heaven. Many of these sheeps are willing to betray the sacrifices of their family and parents to believe him. Despite the overwhelming evidence the ex management of the church funds are willing to claim trial to delay as long as possible the punishments and ultimate disgrace from judgement. They are trying to enjoy the support as long as they can for they know once they are in it will never be the same again. We don’t know whoever the new leader can hold onto the crowd. If not CHC will fade awayand the sheeps will mature with time and become men and women.

    • KH shd rightly admit his wrongdoings in court to accept with contrition and humility ….Oh no! Since you conclude KH had sin,and jump right into the frying pans!Many have said CHC members as dumb,but we saw many silly comments,and sarcasms and mockings–they were the dumb ones isn’t it so?

    At the Cathloic mass in Brisbane last Sunday, the Archbishop of Brisbane warned against false shepherds. Jesus is the Shepherd he said.
    The Archbishop did not preached the Prosperity gospel of many false shephards. He did say “I do not want to hear the jingles”. He did not say, “You have to back up your faith with reserves i.e. tithing in big sums”. He did not promise that I will be richer by a hundred times.

    • dred said

      But he allows the priests to be called ‘father’against the command of Jesus and himself to be called ‘father’before he became a bishop, even though Jesus said..”You will call no man father.”. What is worse….diversion by money, or making people practice something Jesus commanded not to do.
      And where did the silver and gold come from for the Church of Rome?

      • Tissa said

        To understand why Catholics call their church priests Father, one must first understand the use of the word “father” in reference to our earthly fathers. No one would deny a little girl the opportunity to tell someone that she loves her father. Common sense tells us that Jesus wasn’t forbidding this type of use of the word “father.” 

        In fact, to forbid it would rob the address “Father” of its meaning when applied to God, for there would no longer be any earthly counterpart for the analogy of divine Fatherhood. The concept of God’s role as Father would be meaningless if we obliterated the concept of earthly fatherhood. 

        But in the Bible the concept of fatherhood is not restricted to just our earthly fathers and God. It is used to refer to people other than biological or legal fathers, and is used as a sign of respect to those with whom we have a special relationship. 

        For example, Joseph tells his brothers of a special fatherly relationship God had given him with the king of Egypt: “So it was not you who sent me here, but God; and he has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house and ruler over all the land of Egypt” (Gen. 45:8). 

        Job indicates he played a fatherly role with the less fortunate: “I was a father to the poor, and I searched out the cause of him whom I did not know” (Job 29:16). And God himself declares that he will give a fatherly role to Eliakim, the steward of the house of David: “In that day I will call my servant Eliakim, the son of Hilkiah . . . and I will clothe him with [a] robe, and will bind [a] girdle on him, and will commit . . . authority to his hand; and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah” (Is. 22:20—21). 

        This type of fatherhood not only applies to those who are wise counselors (like Joseph) or benefactors (like Job) or both (like Eliakim), it also applies to those who have a fatherly spiritual relationship with one. For example, Elisha cries, “My father, my father!” to Elijah as the latter is carried up to heaven in a whirlwind (2 Kgs. 2:12). Later, Elisha himself is called a father by the king of Israel (2 Kgs. 6:21)

      • tcl said

        Dred, what do you call your own father? Your shallow understanding of the bible and its context are what’s leading you down the road to the spiritual abyss. Go worship your mammon.

  13. Kong Hee Fatt Choy said

    Kong Hee Fatt Choy engaged Edwin Tong from Allen & Gledhill to defend him According to inside sources, legal fees to date is closed to S$1 million, even before the real actions begins in Court. Monies are spent doing silent PR works (to public and also to reporters), hoping to reverse any negative public images, or to minimize negative public perceptions. Anonymous source continued to explain that Kong Hee Fatt Choy intends to vigorously deny all charges and with his thick, fat wallet and other stashes of undeclared tithe collections, he’s willing to “bless” Edwin Tong & his partners very very very “wealth” despite Edwin Tong & Team did not earlier tithe anything to CHC! And with the “wealth blessing”, you can be sure Edwin Tong & Team will know how to repay their new-found God-of Wealth, Kong Hee Fatt Choy, by helping him to fight off all those charges! And, as the Chinese saying goes, 有錢能使鬼推磨 (if you have $$$, you can even get the ghost to do chores for you), who knows, Kong Hee Fatt Choy may truly have enough $$$ to make the “ghost” work magic for him & clear him of all the charges!

    Of course, being Kong Hee Fatt Choy, he’ll not let Edwin Tong get away with his “wealth blessing” for too long … Soon, Edwin Tong would probably feel obliged to attend CHC’s weekly services and cell-group meetings, and that’s where Kong Hee Fatt Choy will collect back his “wealth blessing” to Edwin Tong & Team … via tithing! Hahaha!

    all the followers still support him because they have give him to much already. so mati mati will says KH is right.

  16. Alvin said

    No body ever question that it is now time for Kong Hee to give back till his heart is broken?
    Give back all that he has recieved so generously from god and the church…
    Think positive and go to changi prison and be the head pastor there!

    This describes the false prosperity teachers: destruction, perdition and finally sorrows

    1Tim 6
    5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. 6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

      There will always be counterfeiters….no one counterfeits monopoly money, but everyone trys to counterfeit US dollars..why? Because of value.The message of Jesus has many counterfeits..but that does not mean that the real message is wrong.
      Well done on Derren’s part..too bad he doesn’t realise he is working also with counterfeiters.However, the grace of God is sufficient for all who seek the truth, and one day..perhaps, we will see a truly mighty man of God in Derren and his friend.Wouldn’t it be funny if the scuba diver becomes a real pastor.Thank you for posting this….as one who has seen the blind see , the lame walk, the deaf hear , the dumb speak, the lepers cleansed..there are real miracles..and they are free.

      Roland Poon worships at other churches. He’s not involved anymore. He did coughed out $33k with the help of friends to pay for the two advertisements in the newspaper. One was to apologize and the other to refute what he had said was untrue.

      The CBT was being investigated by auditors of CHC and reported the crimes to CAD.

      Bless Roland soul.

  23. Bao Ching Tian said

    When KH and CHC members view this as State against God, it becomes dangerous and will be cause for concern by the government.

    • Singaporean said

      There are more Buddhists than Christians. If we Buddhists or other religions see that the government is siding with the kong hee, we will not be quiet. I think other religions are observing too.

    • DIY said

      This is not a question of State vs God. It is the aggrieved parties against the wrongdoers.

      To complaint to the State the aggrieved parties need to substantiate with the facts and evidence.

      Under the Evidence Act the essences are (a) Facts: Pastor Poon H K and other collaborators; (b) Evidence: Money ($50m), sham bonds, falsifying documents.

      The DPP will have to put up a watertight case.

      The presiding judge will weigh the technicalities and would declare if there is a ‘prima facie’ case. In legal terms it means beyond reasonable doubts. For this CHC scandal there will a trial because the accused was put on bails and will be heard again.

      So just wait and see in 5 weeks time (around August 2012).

  24. Jesus Christ, the Shepherd says at Matthew7:8-9, “Therefore do not be like them(those who like to show-off their charitable deeds and prayers to others openly). For your Father knows the things you have need of b4 you ask Him. In this manner(ie pray secretly) therefore pray:
    ……. Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our DAILY BREAD. And forgive us our sins, …….”

    JC did not ask His sheep to pray for daily shark fin soup, abalone, caviar, lobster, Kobe beef, bird nest, Mao San Wong durians, etc or for 100-fold riches in return for their tithes.
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _

    JOHN.15:10 & 14:15 = JC says, “If u keep My commandments(or laws), u will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.” & “If u love Me, keep My commandments.”

  25. @ Dred today at 1.34 pm: Hi, Dred, I’m a Catholic and wld like to reserve my response to ur comment as – if u’ll excuse my saying this – u really need to know the Catholic faith much more than to pass judgement so definitely as u’ve done. Why not join our catechism class to know more about us Catholics?
    Be this as it is, allow me to clarify some ‘popular’ errors attributed to the Catholic faith, viz.:
    1. That we worship Mary, and not Jesus. In fact, we worship Jesus and honour Mary as Jesus’ Mother and our Intercessor and Mother of Perpetual Succour.
    2. That we also tithe. We don’t tithe and only donate of our own free will such amount as we can within our means.
    3. Our priests are well-heeled and live in pampered comfort. Truth is, they’re paid pittance except for prests who do not take the vow of poverty and can keep their inheritance. But I’m an ordinary parishioner and it’s best u learn what u want to know first hand from our priests than merely accept the rumours u hear.
    So, Dred, do try to join our catechism class in any Cstholic church most convenient to u and know more about us. Who knows, u may be surprised that u too will want to be one of us than against us!!
    God bless.

    • Esj said

      Yeah. Catholics DO NOT worship Mary. Worship is for God alone! They honour her as the Mother of Christ, just like how Jesus honoured her as his own chosen Mother. Since its one of God’s 10 commandments to ‘honour thy father thy mother’, shouldn’t we be honouring Mary; whom Jesus our Lord entrusted to us as our mother? (Jesus asked John to behold Mary has his mother at Calvary, when she is not related to him by blood)

    • voolu said

      Those are common misunderstandings of the Catholic faith!I have also observed that this dred tends to ‘question’ about the teachings and works of Catholicism on comments that involve Catholicism..It seems to me that dred thinks that roman catholicism is a total questionable heresy,when ‘sola scriptura’ system on the other hand,mainly adopted by protestants itself is another highly-questioned belief by many around the world as well.

      So I hope everyone stops attacking on one another’s churches’ teachings or whatsoever,especially not so on a page that revolves ONLY around CHC fraud case.Peace be with you.

    any idea why everyone in CHC is praising god and emptying their pockets but coincidentally only top management got blessed by god to become rich? how to be rich when u are expected to empty your pocket everytime (unless u didn’t…)

    Not to worry, Pastor Kong Hee …..when you go stay Changi Long House, you can still preach to the hundreds of jail birds and even get them to tithe their jail earnings to your account! I’m sure the Prison Admin will help you out on this. Maybe you can even convert the prison staff to your Jesus and even persuade them to tithe their salaries also by giro to CHC? Good luck….

    Father, we know not what we say and do, please forgive us for we are sinful, arrogant, self righteous and mis-guided by the charismatic one. Guide us in our thoughts, words and deeds. Your house is ready for us but we are not ready till death and by our faith and your grace shall we enter your house. Give us strength so that no man or thing can turn us from our faith and your words which we read from the bible with the innonence of a child and when we hear you through our soft heart.
    We are meek and happily so because you are with us and Jesus is with us.
    We rejoice because of our ignorance and our simple mindedness as we know only what Jesus told us. Our Lord says : “Believe in me and you shall be saved”
    It’s been 2 thousand and 12 years and you are still among us, comforting us.
    Thank you Jesus, thank you heavenly Father for being faithful to us. 🙂

    Quoting from source :

    “…Paul warned Timothy about such men in 1 Timothy 6:5, 9-11. These men of “corrupt mind” supposed godliness was a means of gain and their desire for riches was a trap that brought them “into ruin and destruction” (v. 9). The pursuit of wealth is a dangerous path for Christians and one which God warns about: “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs” (v. 10). If riches were a reasonable goal for the godly, Jesus would have pursued it. But He did not, preferring instead to have no place to lay His head (Matthew 8:20) and teaching His disciples to do the same. It should also be remembered that the only disciple concerned with wealth was Judas….”

    • dodo said

      An example of what is often lightly and trivially quoted verse that is almost always used out of context by either the prosperity/success gospel or simply bad shepherds:

      I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

      > The strength is to be content in all circumstances and, first and foremost, strength to preserve your faith in need and riches. It is NOT the strength to do supernatural things (after you donated money as proof of earnestness) so that you can become wealthy and powerful, fulfilling your own self-serving needs.

  40. Concern said

    Was Jesus poor? Definitely No! But He had made Himself poor!

    Was Jesus really poor? The pastor (Kong Hee) confidently asked his members. Then he began his best effort to wrestle the truth in the scriptures:

    #1 Reason: Jesus was showered with great treasures!

    “They (Joseph, Mary and the baby Jesus) are in a stable not because they couldn’t afford a room but because there was no more room available.”

    This pastor is now belying the humblest beginning of Jesus. This is a grave mistake in the scriptures!

    The Father God, who is the creator of heaven and earth, can effortlessly make His Son be born in the most majestic place in the world if He wanted to. Or He can simply reserve a more convenient place in Bethlehem. But He did not and allowed His Son to be born in a stable.

    Imagine this, God has let His Son lay in a manger to show His humbleness then here come a pastor saying “That’s not true!” This is surely a blasphemy against God.

    Commentary on ‘Was Jesus Poor?’ teaching of Kong Hee of City Harvest Church (#1 Reas)

    • dan2429E said

      Obviously, Jesus can be very rich if he wanted to but he chose to be poor.
      It was a choice that God wanted him to be humble and not to preach prosperity.
      Of course, it is not a sin to be rich and God do bless some Christians to be prosperous.

  41. Of course, Lord Jesus will shepherd him……. to prison.
