In spite of their lies, blasphemies and crimes, pulpit criminals like Kong Hee and David Yonggi Cho still choose to stick together. Before reading the Christian Post article, we would like to highlight some of the things Kong Hee mentioned in this piece.
1. “Cho’s teaching on the Holy Spirit and the Fourth Dimension has been nothing short of transformative in our generation”
“Transformative” Kong? Yes. But for the better? No.
Yonggi Cho’s Fourth Dimension are founded on his pagan background, his fascination with the Soka Gakkai, his influences with the NAR, the demonic encounters he claims to be the Holy Spirit teaching him about the ‘Fourth Dimension’. You can learn more about his theology from our review of his ‘Fourth Dimension’ teaching on Yoido Full Gospel Church Watch.com.
2. “Kong has also praised the major growth of Christian megachurches in South Korea during his recent trip to the country, noting that it has seen “one of the greatest revivals in the last 100 years” of Christianity occur there.”
This is a lie. This article exposes the fact that David Yonggi Cho’s church is an utter failure and that the churches of Korea long for the days of the early martyred missionaries who brought revival and the Word of God.
Lamenting the infiltration of “secularization and pervasive mammonism” into the Korean church…
These men continue to deceitfully praise each other’s false works in their attempt to stengthen each other’s credibility and profit from the gullible “Christians” in their Prosperity cults. They refuse to accept the fact that their friends are guilty before God and before their earthly courts of law.

Kong Hee Says His ‘Spiritual Father’ Is Pastor David Yonggi Cho of Yoido Full Gospel Church
Singapore’s City Harvest Church pastor Kong Hee has praised Pastor David Yonggi Cho and Grace Kim Sunghae of Yoido Full Gospel Church, the largest Pentecostal Church in the world, as being “one of the most amazing couples in the history of Christendom.”
Kong also said that Cho, who founded Yoido in 1958 and saw it grow into a congregation of 830,000 members, has accomplished “things of biblical proportions very few could imagine possible.”
The CHC pastor explained in a detailed post on Facebook some of the history behind South Korea’s Yoido, noting that Cho, who is now its pastor emeritus, also founded several other Christian institutions, including Church Growth International, Elim Welfare Town, Hansei University, the International Theological Institute, and the Kookmin Daily newspaper.
“Cho’s teaching on the Holy Spirit and the Fourth Dimension has been nothing short of transformative in our generation,” Kong wrote.
He added that Kim has also accomplished a great deal helping her husband in five decades of ministry, noting that she is an accomplished concert pianist, educator and ordained minister of the Gospel, along with the current president of Hansei University.
“Most of all, she is a ‘mother’ to hundreds of pastors, missionaries and churches in Korea and around the world,” Kong wrote.
“Sun [Ho] and I are blessed to have Cho and Kim as our spiritual parents. Cho is our pastor and discipler, and Kim our encourager and intercessor,” he continued.
“During our recent trip to Seoul, we were honored again to spend private, quality time with both of them, and also with some of their closest disciples. I was given the privilege to preach at the 40,000-member Nowon Full Gospel Church, as well as the famous Gangnam Full Gospel Church, a congregation fervent in prayer and intercession.”
Kong has also praised the major growth of Christian megachurches in South Korea during his recent trip to the country, noting that it has seen “one of the greatest revivals in the last 100 years” of Christianity occur there.
“They have been consistently baptizing 1,000 new converts every month! If you ask any Korean church what is the key to their success, the answer is unanimous — PRAYER!” he wrote last week, referring to Yoido’s success.
Both Kong and Cho have faced controversies and their own separate court battles, however. Kong was convicted and sentenced to eight years in prison last year along with five other CHC members of misusing millions of church donations for the popstar career of Ho, an accusation which he denied and has appealed against.
Cho, on the other hand, was sentenced to three years in prison in 2014 for embezzling church funds, concerning church officials buying stocks owned by his eldest son, which resulted in $12 million in losses to the church.
Yoido remains the largest megachurch in South Korea despite the controversy, however.
In his Facebook post, Kong noted that Cho will be celebrating his 80th birthday later in February, and said that he sends his prayers “for this dear man of God on his special milestone.”
