Kong Hee gives the impression he is a Christian minister. He recently claimed “I do maintain my integrity”. In part 1 we examined both Phil Pringle and Kong Hee’s credentials. In spite of youtube videos calling Kong Hee ‘Dr Kong Hee’ and Kong Hee addressing Pringle as ‘Dr Phil Pringle’, they have no credibility with their unaccredited doctrines.
Now we would like you to decide if Kong Hee carries integrity with the following video of Kong Hee teaching C3 College students at C3 Oxford Falls, Sydney in 2009. Does Hee preach the Christian gospel? Does he run a Christian ministry?
THE CHRISTIAN GOSPEL MESSAGE
Remember that the Christian message (good message), also known as the gospel, is this:
“Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.” - Apostle Paul, 1 Corinthians 15:1-11, ESV.
THE CHRISTIAN MINISTRY
This is the mission and ministry of the church:
“From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” - The Apostle Paul, 2 Corinthians 5:16-21, ESV.
Contrast the Christian message, mission and ministry with Kong Hee and Phil Pringle’s message, mission and ministry.
Not only did we just hear from Kong’s lips that they preach a gospel contrary to the ‘save me’ gospel, he also preached the false ‘dominion’ doctrine AND mocked Christians who hold to the gospel of salvation. Why does Kong Hee mock Christianity and call it ‘shallow Christianity’?
It’s worth observing how Paul mocked the Corinthian Church,
“… if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough.” - Apostle Paul, 2 Corinthians 11:4, ESV.
And Paul laid a curse on anyone that preached a gospel contrary to the one the early apostles preached:
“… even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.” - Apostle Paul, Galatians 1:8-9, ESV.
Kong Hee claimed brazenly that Phil Pringle and himself want to change the Christian gospel to their own gospel. For them to change the cause of the church and to change the message of Christianity is an attack on Christianity. The Apostle Paul would see not see integrity in both Phil Pringle and Kong Hee.
The scriptures teach that men like Phil Pringle and Kong Hee are “impostors” and “evil men who are will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:13). The scriptures also say that men such as Pringle and Kong Hee have a form of godliness but deny it’s power. Therefore we should avoid them and have nothing to do with them (2 Timothy 3:5).
The Apostle John takes this further and claims that those like Pringle and Kong Hee who do not remain in the teachings of God “does not have God” and do wicked works.
“Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take him into your house or welcome him. Anyone who welcomes him shares in his wicked work.” - The Apostle John, 2John 1:9-11, NIV
As Christians who love God, do we dare obey His Word? Are we prepared to call Phil Pringle and Kong Hee “impostors” and call them to repent from their wickedness?
We will end with more bible verses to highlight how linked the gospel is to salvation rather then to Kong Hee and Phil Pringle’s narcissistic gospel (bold emphasis added).
“In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit,” Ephesians 1:13
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes,” Romans 1:16
“He called you to salvation when we told you the Good News; now you can share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 2 Thessalonians 2:14
