We read in the bible that Jesus is against those who turn God’s Temple/House into a place of business (emphasis mine).

“And He made a scourge of cords, and drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen; and He poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables; and to those who were selling the doves He said, “Take these things away; stop making My Father’s house a place of business.” John 2:15-16

We want you to invite as many of your business guys. We’d like to create this huge business – people’s network around the globe in C3 churches. So that we can work together because it’s a global market place.

And if we can work together – business people and guys in the ministry to acheive this great vision God has given us, that will be phenomenal.

So we’re going to have a lot of input on the marketplace ministry…– Phil Pringle, Ps Phil Pringle: Courage (AM), http://www2.myc3church.net/videos/ps-phil-pringle-courage-am, Live Kuala Lumpur Promo (AM), 19/07/2011.

Here is a quote and video we captured of Pringle promoting his Kuala Lumpur Conference event. He is using sex to advertise his event as well as attracting wealthy business men (Christian or not) to attend his conference.

In the above video, Phil Pringle wants the rich in his movement to support his 2020 Vision that he says is a ‘great vision God has given us’. It is unbiblical to favour the rich so he can further his ‘vision’. (You will see that this vision of God is a lie later.)

Only those with money can attend this conference in the first place. Because of his behaviour and actions, the bible condemns Phil Pringle of:

1. carrying an attitude of personal favoritism to the rich for his event

2. being unloving 

3. sinning.

“My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism. For if a man comes into your assembly with a gold ring and dressed in fine clothes, and there also comes in a poor man in dirty clothes, and you pay special attention to the one who is wearing the fine clothes, and say, “You sit here in a good place,” and you say to the poor man, “You stand over there, or sit down by my footstool,” have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil motives? Listen, my beloved brethren: did not God choose the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Is it not the rich who oppress you and personally drag you into court? Do they not blaspheme the fair name by which you have been called?

If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF,” you are doing well. But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors.” – James 2:1-9
