PHIL PRINGLE: CORRUPT TEACHING & MANIPULATIVE GIVING.

Below is a transcript of Pringle in his sermon ‘Fighting The Good Fight P1’, preached on Sunday the 19th of January, 2014 (video being obtained).

Let’s analyse and review it:

“Everything you hear us preach up here isn’t by accident. We have thoroughly researched the opposition to it and the positive to it and it’s on a firm conviction and foundation of our faith of what we believe, in Jesus name, amen!”

Phil Pringle has been unashamedly promoting the false teaching about tithing for years. Below, Pringle declares what he and other preachers preach behind the C3 pulpit, “isn’t by accident“. If Pringle is openly admitting that what he teaches is not an accident, then how does he explain this ‘accident’?

A Good Example Of Pringle Teaching Dishonestly

Is he prepared to admit that he lied to his congregation about God saying to Joshua that ‘Someone took the tithe’? Is he prepared to admit that he twists the word of God to manipulate his congregation into giving money?

“So when- when stuff comes along about tithing and all that, I’m not bothered by that! I’ve done the research!”

We’re calling Pringle out on this. There is no way he can claim he’s researched this field in depth and then go on to mislead the congregation about his ‘teaching’ on the tithe. He claims, “Everything you hear us preach up hear isn’t by accident”. Can he then play the ‘ignorance’ card once he’s exposed for defending such a heresy?

And if he truly believes this, wouldn’t this make the church view this man, behind the pulpit, as biblically illiterate when it comes to properly teaching on the OT tithe doctrine and NT ‘joyful giving’?

PRINGLE CAN SPEAK AS THOUGH QUALIFIED?

This leads us to the next outrageous thing Pringle states:

“I’ve viewed the opposition’s thoughts! RIDICULOUS, UNQUALIFIED THINKING THAT ARE CONVENIENT FOR STINGY PEOPLE! That’s all it is!”

The tithe doctrine has been refuted for years by scholars, properly trained men in leadership, in the pastoral office and in the fields of apologetics. It is a false doctrine that is peddled by Word of Faith cults or ‘wolves’ who want to fleece the flock. What makes this even more outrageous is Pringle’s own hypocrisy.

Qualified vs unqualified? Don’t you think that’s interesting coming from Phil Pringle considering the fact that he’s been ‘exposed’ for misleading his church into believing that his credentials are legitimate?

If there is anyone who is unqualified to be behind the pulpit – Pringle fulfills his own criteria perfectly.

And for someone unqualified as Pringle, he insists he has the ‘right’ to brainwash Christians everywhere with his false teachings on this dangerous doctrine which shipwrecks people’s faith. In fact, he accuses Christians, that if they withhold the tithe from God, they are “cursed” and accuses Christians of being “the very worst of thieves“.

If Pringle has “viewed the opposition’s thoughts”, why has he only hurled insults their way and created straw men arguments? His assertions have been nothing but misleading eisegesis to keep people quiet and to keep his congregation bound by his legalistic manipulation.

PRINGLE BRAINWASHING C3 MEMBERS?

“With opposite doctrines and teachings that you’ll hear floating around now and then. They may shake you in mind and trouble you a little. But that’s so to drive you to reinforce your conviction about what you believe.”

Notice the deceptive technique Pringle is employing here. If his members are shaken ‘in mind’, he does not encourage them to do a bible study on the tithe. Instead, he insists that these ‘opposite doctrines’ only reinforces this false teaching that he wants his members to believe. This is brainwashing. He is not encouraging people to look at the facts. Instead he is appealing to their emotions as a form of ‘blackmail’.

Sadly, THE opposite doctrine that refutes his false doctrine is the gospel of salvation itself. In other words, he is conditioning C3 members to harden their hearts against Christianity to embrace Pringle’s own works-based religion.

And then of course, Pringle decides to plug his “colleges”.

To get yourself to an longline college or bible college. You can watch it online if you’re watching online now. Online. Online. Just go ahead and enjoy it.”

These colleges are all about indoctrinating people to fit the C3 system. Sadly, the emails and documents we have received from ex-students have confirmed that what they are taught is a poor excuse of biblical Christianity.

It is true that Pringle’s colleges shake people. They shake every penny out of their pockets, shake any truth out of their brain cells and shake any integrity out of their souls.

Pringle later states,

“And uh- First all get a cornerstone of our faith, firmly established so we’re not moved and shaken. I see people get tossed around and suddenly they are believing something else that they didn’t hear at the beginning! Because there is always somebody trying to kill, steal or destroy your faith. It’s a fight to hold on and apart of that fight is to get yourself on a firm, unshakable foundation. “

Notice how he avoids making CHRIST and the CROSS the foundation of the Christian life. In fact, you can watch his entire sermon on his site. Any viewer should be concerned that Pringle refused to connect the ‘cornerstone’ with Christ and the foundation of their faith with Christ. That’s because according to Pringle, faith (mixed with the tithe) is the foundation – not Christ alone. It’s reinforced a number of times that the cornerstone of the believers life is the tithe.

So why are C3 members submitting to an unqualified man who appears to be blowing immature ‘raspberries’ at those who have refuted the absurd tithe doctrine? C3 members need to wake up and leave this false teacher behind, with his false words and false credentials.

TRANSCRIPT

Here is the transcript:

“Everything you hear us preach up hear isn’t by accident. We have thoroughly researched the opposition to it and the positive to it and it’s on a firm conviction and foundation of our faith of what we believe, in Jesus name, amen!

So when- when stuff comes along about tithing and all that, I’m not bothered by that! I’ve done the research! I’ve viewed the opposition’s thoughts! RIDICULOUS, UNQUALIFIED THINKING THAT ARE CONVENIENT FOR STINGY PEOPLE! That’s all it is! That’s all it is! If the cap fits, you know like- the deal is, that you’ve got to know what you believe and not let yourself be shaken. God is building an unshakable church!

And listen, here’s the thing in Hebrews twelve, twenty six… [Pringle reads Hebrews 12:26]

Now here’s the thing, God’s gonna shhh- allow you to be shaken. With opposite doctrines and teachings that you’ll hear floating around now and then. They may shake you in mind and trouble you a little. But that’s so to drive you to reinforce your conviction about what you believe. To get yourself to an longline college or bible college. You can watch it online if you’re watching online now. Online. Online. Just go ahead and enjoy it.

And uh- First all get a cornerstone of our faith, firmly established so we’re not moved and shaken. I see people get tossed around and suddenly they are believing something else that they didn’t hear at the beginning! Because there is always somebody trying to kill, steal or destroy your faith. It’s a fight to hold on and apart of that fight is to get yourself on a firm, unshakable foundation. There will be weak areas in everybody’s faith. Everybody’s got a weakness somewhere. A hole. And so the Lord allows that to be a bit shaky there so you can reinforce it. And build it up and get strong in that area. In fact, some of the areas is that I’m the strongest on are the areas that I was weakest on. Simply because of that fact.

You don’t grow strong without opposition or resistance. Ask any fitness trainer in the room. Their gonna tell you that’s the way you build muscle.”

Tithing is not a command in the New Testament – we give out of love, from the heart because we are under a new unconditional covenant not the Old Testament law.
