It is a pastor and teacher’s role and duty to protect the sheep from wolves in sheep’s clothing. It is their biblical duty to expose them and cast them out of God’s flock.
If you attend C3 Church, please take note what pastors around the world are starting to say about Phil Pringle. It would be wise to heed their counsel.
Pastor Ron Parker comments on Phil Pringle:
“As I look through this material [on C3 Church Watch], I recognize The New Age movement and its deception. Like Rick Warren and his Purpose driven New Age theme, the world is falling into a trap to ensnare the man with itching ears with a new gospel, which are lies. I can see how the deception works descreetly and makes it look good. Satan himself was created by God and was a beautiful Arc Angel. So he makes bad things look good to our eyes. But the Bible is true and Satan is a liar. We are set free from the world by Jesus Christ and Him alone. Saying all that, I would put Phil Pringle and Rick Warren in the same class!” – Pastor Ron Parker, Cornerstone Community Church, 16100 Hwy 71, Savannah, MO 64485.
Pastor Gervase Nicholas E. Charmley comments on Phil Pringle:
– From Bethel Evangelical Free Church, Hanley, Stoke on Trent.
International Christian Radio Presenter Chris Rosebrough comments on Phil Pringle and the C3 Movement:
Excerpt: “… I’m going to be playing the audio from a video segment where they are – where Phil Pringle is basically getting people geared up to give for a miracle offering. Give money and you’ll receive a miracle. It’s – I mean it is- so, so blatantly obvious and just terrible as to how they are, you know, fleecing the people attending the Presence Conference! And using God as the pretense for it. It’s- it’s- uh-ah-ih- I don’t even want to say it borders on criminal. I think it’s flat-out criminal. I can’t see that this is not a crime in the Kingdom of God, what these men are doing. Steven Furtick and Phil Pringle, both.” – Chris Rosebrough, Fighting For The Faith, http://004f597.netsolhost.com/fftf/F4F041312.mp3, (8:20), 13/04/2012.
Moriel Ministries Pastor and teacher Jacob Prasch comments on Phil Pringle and the C3 Movement:
“… When people get fed up with being financially exploited and begin to leave the church, the heavy shepherding takes over and these people are told “they have a spirit of rebellion”.
All of this mess comes from the ‘Mixture’ of secular psychology and the vain philosophies of the world with biblical psychology and Christian doctrine. This same mixture is why we see so many Christians in churches like Toronto Preacher Phil Pringle’s City Church in Sydney get involved in things like Amway and in pyramiding schemes. Psychologised Christians are prone to such things because such schemes are based on psycho babel disguising itself as biblical principles…” – Jacob Prasch, Understanding “The Mixture” from 1 Thessalonians, http://www.moriel.org/articles/sermons/understanding_the_mixture.htm.

Pastor, Missionary and Teacher Salvador Hayworth from KwaZulu Mission and Moriel Missions South Africa comments on Phil Pringle and the C3 Movement:
“When I see this material and see the doctrine and practices of the C3 church crowd, I cannot help but notice that biblical prophecy is being fulfilled before our very eyes. 2 Peter 2:1-6 prophecies [sic]
1 But there arose false prophets also among the people, as among you also there shall be false teachers, who shall privily bring in destructive heresies, denying even the Master that bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their lascivious doings; by reason of whom the way of the truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And in covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose sentence now from of old lingereth not, and their destruction slumbereth not. 4 For if God spared not angels when they sinned, but cast them down to hell, and committed them to pits of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5 and spared not the ancient world, but preserved Noah with seven others, a preacher of righteousness, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, having made them an example unto those that should live ungodly;” Their destruction does not sleep. We don’t make judgment about these kind of teachers,. God has already made the judgment. These men are to be avoided. Just as those who camped with Korah went down into Sheol with Korah, so those who camp with these men will share in the same judgment.”
Pastor Tony Dean from Moriah Ministries comments on Phil Pringle and the C3 Movement:
“There are millions upon millions ensnared in this false ‘Church’, and the only way they will ever be led out, is by having the true Gospel preached to the mega-masses, and by exposing the lies of their leaders. Only the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation, not gimmicks… the Gospel alone! Most of these people have never heard the true Gospel, and sadly, as you will discover, many do not want to! They are quite content to further indulge their sensuality and call it ‘a fresh move of the Holy Spirit’. . .
False prophets and false teachers abound, from Phil Pringle’s C3 enigmatic empire, to Brian Houston’s delusions of grandeur, and every nutcase in between, the professing Christian Church is literally infested with tongue wagging termites leading the deceived away into perdition. And we are told to not be ‘judgmental’ by mentioning the fact.”
And also says:
Well, as expected Senior Pastor of the Oxford Falls Christian City Church, Phil Pringle has exposed himself as a false prophet by shamelessly proclaiming in the Lord’s Name that an event would take place which did not. . .
Phil Pringle has been caught out uttering what the Bible calls, ‘Vain Imaginations’ and according to Scripture has invited the Lord’s rejection and wrath.
I am quite confident the Charismatic Spin Machine is presently working overtime to get around this one! And while some may consider this matter a small thing let me assure you the Heavenly Father does NOT!
