Kong Hee is on his way to jail for his “unwise decision” to line his pockets with money that belonged to City Harvest Church (CHC). So Pastor Hee released an apology. Channel News Asia reports:
City Harvest Church founder Kong Hee has issued an apology to his church and the public for “unwise decisions” he had made in the past.
In a Facebook post on Wednesday night (Apr 19), Kong said: “I am truly sorry … I am filled with grief and regret over my mistakes and I sincerely ask for your forgiveness.”
For the rest of the story and to read Hee’s apology, visit CNA.
Now this from Churchwatch Central (CWC), a group of “churchwatchers” who have done some excellent reporting on Kong Hee and his leadership’s pilfering of church funds; likewise the church’s ties to the New Apostolic Reformation. CWC and Chris Rosebrough of Fighting for the Faith have exposed Kong Hee’s church (here) as “a dangerous cult that threatens the Christian faith and the well-being of citizens of Singapore.”
CHC Management Board reacts to Kong Hee’s sentence
From CHC Management Board, we read Aries Zulkarnain’s media release in which he states:
“We put our trust in God that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”
This statement is a paraphrase of Romans 8:28
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
Sadly this scripture barely resembles the lives of Kong Hee, or his leadership. However it does reflect the lives of those who have left CHC after clearly questioning CHC’s teachings and practices.
What Zulkarnain quoted is exactly what CHC has not done.
If CHC put their faith in God, why is their founder, and his senior leaders, going to jail?
This is why things have NOT worked out for the good of CHC and why it has NOT worked for the six accused. If “God works for the good of those who love Him,” why are six leaders from CHC going to jail?
