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.
How Can Kong Hee Say “I Do Maintain My Integrity”? (Part 1)
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

Kong Hee and Pringle are heretics and disciples of Satan. All true Christians are to keep away from their destructive teachings.
Hui Fen said:
If you are a Christian, I assume you all are. You should know, “Do not judge”.
Leave it to the Lord, your God, and shut up.
They are just human beings, like you all are.
“Leave it to the Lord, your God […]”
That’s an interesting turn of phrase – can we assume that He is not your God also, since if He were you would have said instead “our God”.
‘You should know, “Do not judge”.’
On the contrary, *you* should know the content, context, spirit and intent of Scripture. It seems that you have one out of four, at best, and we can therefore deduce that you have little love for the truth, for the written word, or for the author of that written word. I am guessing that you are one of the many undiscerning acolytes blindly stumbling along after Kong Hee, with eyes and ears shut but wallet open.
“[…] and shut up.”
Ooh, a little touchy there, aren’t we? Are you perhaps resentful towards those who point out that the beneficiary of your unquestioning fealty is not quite as holy as he would have had you believe? Why don’t you try asking CHC if you can have your money back?
“They are just human beings […]”
You got that right: they are nothing but dust, and to dust they shall return. Their glory is fleeting like the flowers of the field, and before you know it they will have departed from this mortal coil. They won’t take anything with them when they leave this life – not fame, not fortune, not reputation, not penthouses or flash cars or followers or butlers or nannies or maids or bodyguards – nothing at all: they will depart as naked as the day on which they came. I wonder if they ever think about that, and, if they do, whether they find it a sobering thought.
“[…] like you all are.”
You got that wrong. Speaking for myself, I am an adopted son of the Living God, a joint heir with Jesus Christ, and a vessel filled with the Holy Spirit – a man whose name was written in the Lamb’s book of life from the foundation of the world, who has been freely justified and redeemed by Christ’s atoning death on the cross in accordance with God’s glorious Gospel of mercy and grace. So the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has seen fit to make me so much more than “just” a human being (and all that without tithing, can you imagine that?)
I think Robert Yeo’s and Hui Fen’s comments are both extreme. I wouldn’t go as far as labelling them “heretics and disciples of Satan” but you can’t roll out the old “Do not judge” chestnut.
There have been plenty of comments on here and other blogs that deal with the erroneous “Don’t touch God’s anointed” teaching.
I don’t know which bothers me more, the charges or the freedom to move around Southeast Asia spreading his false teaching.

I don’t know Kong Hee, first time hearing him speak was in your video clip that you posted above.
What I heard from Kong Hee is that many Christians are passive and living a defeated life. I agree with him there. I just look at Believers at the church I attend and around our nation and many are not living a life filled with joy, love, peace and righteousness – life demonstrating the kingdom of God reigning in our lives — e.g. Churches have the same divorce rates as non-believers. Look at the fruit of the churches — is this the bride of Christ, the spotless bride?
I believe God will transform the church into the beautiful, spotless bride. We sure aren’t there yet but I believe the Word of God on this. It will happen because God said it would happen.
I didn’t hear another “gospel” being preached. Seemed like Kong was focused on the walk of a believer, AFTER CONVERSION. There is more to Christianity than getting saved and living an ineffective life. Salvation/conversion is the first step with a relationship with God but not the end all.. He seemed to want to stir up Believers to hunger and thirst after God with passion (e.g. as the deer pants for water…as King David also said my soul and flesh longs for God…), draw so close to God where supernatural things happen to transform our world, for man to take exercise the dominion on this earth that he was called to do from the very beginning.
I believe God never stripped Satan of his power. He did stripped him of his authority and gave it back to us through what Jesus Christ did on the cross. Remember when Satan offered Jesus the kingdoms of the world if Jesus would obey Satan? Jesus never contested it because Satan took that dominion and authority away from Adam and Eve. But Hallelujah, Jesus died on the cross and took those keys of authority back and returned them to us.
What will you do with this authority? I think Kong was saying many Believers have no clue how to use and live with the authority. They walk around like a pity party, defeated, and not understanding what is at our disposal (playing right into the hands of Satan’s plans — to be ineffective, pansy Christians).
What I heard and I hope all Christians would learn and do is to know what your authority is in Jesus Christ and take dominion on the earth — bring God’s kingdom in our personal lives, our marriages, our families, our churches, our communities, our political system, our judiciary, our schools, our businesses, and our media.
Satan has dominion in many of these areas that I just mentioned (just look at what laws are produced through politicians, gay rights agenda, Hollywood movie values, media blasting Christianity, what is taught in our schools, the mocking of Christianity….) but I believe God will transform the church, His bride and we will take back our church, families, political system, judiciary, schools, businesses and media back — we have the authority to do it, we just need to go out and do battle.
Brother Churchwatcher, exciting times are ahead for the Church. Darkness will be increasing but God’s light will shine brighter. Pray for God to move and transform his bride, the church and transform this world for Kingdom of God, the kingdom of light.
God loves Kong Lee and all fallen ministers. May the church not scorn and be careful not to attacked his anointed leaders (whether they are right or wrong, in error or right — see Acts 23:1-4, don’t speak evil of God’s priests). (I’m not saying be blind to sin, error and etc of ministers…but Believers need to be very careful with our words and attitudes because we have to give account for each one of them). The best way that I’ve found to keep my attitude and joy is to pray for ministers like Kong Lee that may be in error.
Pray for the church. Cry for the church. Cry for the bride of Christ to be purified. You will please God with your prayers and attitude because He desires all men to repent, even those that the world and church scorns.
Stay humble and continue to hunger for more of God’s presence, to dwell in His courts at all times.
“I think Kong was saying many Believers have no clue how to use and live with the authority.”
Kong Hee gives Christians no clue or reason how to live in Christs authority. How does he do this? By mangling God’s objective truth into a subjective gnostic mess. Phil Pringle is no different. They don’t properly handle scriptures the way that proper seminaries or bible colleges teach us. They are untrained and parade with false doctorates.
Now just remember that Kong Hee is Phil Pringle’s protege. Read here to see how off the wall Pringle is in handling the scriptures:
If you browse other articles we have of Kong Hee, (especially in relation to China-wine), and you will clearly see how woeful he is at handling scriptures.
That guy said:
“They are untrained and parade with false doctorates.”
So what’s YOURA training?
“So what’s YOUR training?”
You really are clueless, aren’t you? What qualifications someone has or does not have is not the point; the point is that Phil Pringle et al claim to have qualifications that they clearly do not.
Since it’s obvious that you’re a bit slow, I’ll spell it out for you: Phil Pringle is a liar.
Perhaps you would like to explain to me how someone who is a liar (and of the barefaced variety) qualifies as a “leader” and a “pastor”.
