Joseph Prince Teaches That There Will Be More People In Heaven Than Hell – Is This True? (V60 Dated 4 Dec 2020)
An Article Against the New Grace Theology of the New Antinomians, of which Joseph Prince is Identified as One
– By Dr Roland Chia
Rev George Ong’s Comments:
It is my privilege and joy to introduce an accomplished theologian, Dr Roland Chia from Singapore to you. He comes with remarkable credentials. He is Chew Hock Hin Professor of Christian Doctrine at Trinity Theological College and Theological and Research Advisor at the Ethos Institute for Public Christianity.
He has written an article, “The New Antinomianism: A Critique of the New Theology of Grace.” This article is a revised version of a talk he gave at the clergy meeting of the Anglican Diocese of Singapore in 2016 at St Andrew’s Cathedral. This should interest not just members, but especially pastors, elders and leaders of churches.
As this isn’t a short article, take your time to read it in a few sittings and savour the insights contained therein.
At the conclusion of the article, Dr Roland Chia, a qualified theologian who knows his stuff, states that the new antinomians, of which Joseph Prince is identified as one, are preaching heresies and a different gospel.
Dr Roland Chia wrote (the following two paragraphs in italics):
“… the issue that needs to be seriously addressed is whether their theology can be said to have subverted, destabilised or even destroyed the core of the Christian faith. Put in another way, does this new doctrine of grace undermine the Gospel of Jesus Christ? It is my view that it does, and therefore should be regarded not simply as a minor aberration but as heresy.”
“What needs to be pointed out here is that the new antinomians have not only gone a little overboard with their emphasis on grace. As we have seen in this brief survey, their teachings have radically distorted orthodox Christianity in so many important ways that what we have before us may be described as an altogether different gospel (Galatians 1:6-8) …”
This means that Dr Roland Chia (and also Bishop Kuan Kim Seng) and I are in full agreement that Joseph Prince is a heretic and preaching a different gospel.
This is serious. This has great implications as to how fellow ministers of God and the Church ought to view and relate with Joseph Prince. Friends, Joseph Prince isn’t a fellow brother-in-Christ but a heretic to be exposed as his heresies have continued to bring untold harm to the flock not only in Singapore but also around the world.
Heretics, too, are to be loved, forgiven and restored by the Church, if they truly repent (not the false repentance doctrine that Joseph Prince is deceiving the church with). But Joseph Prince has remained blatantly impenitent for the past 25 years. Over these many years, many Christian leaders and believers from around the world have tried to reach out to him to correct his teachings but he doesn’t even bother to respond. Many spiritual leaders in Singapore have also met him face-to-face and confronted him about his erroneous teachings. Yet, he has remained defiantly unrepentant to this day, preaching his Pseudo-grace theology with reckless abandon.
Against the backdrop of Joseph Prince’s continued and defiant unrepentance over the last 25 years, there must be no more indecision and delay as to what the Church ought to do with him. He has to be disfellowshipped from the Church. There are no two ways about it. Not to do anything is to go against what the scriptures have clearly laid out about how the Church ought to act against heretics (2 Jn 9-11; Tit 1:9-14; Tit 3:9-11; 1 Tim 1:20; 2 Tim 3:5; 2 Tim 2:17-18; Rom 16:17-18; Gal 2:4-5; Matt 7:15; Acts 20:28-31; Jude 3-4). Any more indecision and delay will only result in many more sheep being permanently harmed by his toxic teachings and for his heresies to gain a further foothold in the Church.
Allowing Joseph Prince to continue to use and exploit the Singapore Church umbrella as a covering to propagate his heresies and lead the flock of the True Church to their eternal damnation is unimaginable and unacceptable and this has to stop.
Denominational heads should issue a clear stand on this issue. Pastors of churches must have the courage to preach this over the pulpits. Church leaders must be equipped to combat against this heresy. It needs the collective effort of the Church to weed out this cancer of Joseph Prince’s heresies.
The time for talk is over. It’s time for concrete and firm action. The ‘all-talk-no-or-little-action’ posture, to me, is a convenient way of avoiding making the unpleasant but necessary decision. The time to act decisively against Joseph Prince, the Wolf in sheepskin, is now because it’s now or never.
May many more pastors and elders follow the courageous example of Dr Roland Chia to speak out publicly against the heresies of Joseph Prince. This is only right and proper as it is our responsibility as the shepherds of God’s flock to guard the sheep against being harmed by the wolves.
“Why is the church still so sloppy about dealing with the proliferation of heresy when the biggest weekly gathering of the ‘sheep’ that is even bigger than each of the eight main denominations in Singapore: (Lutheran, Bible-Presbyterian, Presbyterian, Evangelical Free Church, Brethren, Baptist, Anglican and the Assemblies of God, except the Methodist), is in the camp of the wolf – Joseph Prince?” (George Ong)
“While persecutions can never destroy the church from the outside, heresies can destroy her from the inside.” (George Ong)

Joseph Prince Falsely Teaches That We Are Once Righteous Always Righteous (V59 Dated 1 Dec 2020)
Joseph Prince’s Teaching Of Obedience As Legalism Disqualifies People From God’s Kingdom: Part 2 (V58 Dated 29 Nov 2020)
George Ong’s Comments:
The friendly Andrew Tan and I met face-to-face twice. In our second meeting, I clearly remember telling him that he should not stay in New Creation Church (NCC) that preaches heresies any longer. He has to come out of it. Thank God that some time later as he sought the Lord, God finally convicted him to leave his Babylon after 20 long years. Praise be to God! It is a costly decision to make. Not only that, he has taken the risk of writing about his experience with NCC. May those who are currently in NCC take heed and follow Andrew’s brave example by leaving their Babylon of heresies behind. May more ex-NCC heroes like Andrew Tan arise to share their stories to expose the heretical teachings of Joseph Prince.
Andrew Tan’s Testimony:
Out of Babylon: Reasons Why I Left New Creation Church
“I attended New Creation Church (NCC) in June 2000 and left in October 2020, spanning a massive 20 years. I had no quarrels with anyone in NCC. In fact, I have made many friends there and I hope they will still consider me as their friend and brother-in-Christ after reading this article. My reasons for leaving are two-fold: the false theological teachings of Pastor Joseph Prince and the practices and modus operandi (mode of operation) of NCC. (Click Read On)

Letter of Encouragement from Hou Song Liang from China
In the last few days, I was a bit discouraged in my battle against the heresies of Joseph Prince. But God knows how to encourage me again through a stranger in China, Hou Song Liang, who wrote to me yesterday (14 Nov 2020) through my website:
“I am from China and I have just graduated from a seminary in Singapore and returned to China. I came across your website through YouTube. Your 4,800 pages of eBooks in your website gave me great encouragement because I am also writing a book about Joseph Prince’s heresies, which is basically completed. What you have written is also what I agree with, and it has also supplemented the deficiencies of my understanding. Your writings are more profound and detailed than what I wrote, and you have seen many things that I have not.
Yesterday, I was writing about Joseph Prince. When I was very weak and discouraged, God showed me your message in your website. Only then did I know that there is a warrior like you. I then realised that I am not alone in the fight against Joseph Prince’s heresies – just like God told Elijah that he had left 7,000 prophets to fight against Baal. And I believe that God asked me to tell you that you are not alone in the fight, as you still have 7,000 comrades-in-arms, and I am one of them. I support you; I will continue to pray for you, and I hope you will pray for me too.
I have read about 30% of the 4,800 pages of notes (George Ong: imagine his hunger) of what you had written in your website in 2 days (13-14 Nov 2020), and I can’t stop reading. I have been praising God and I am very excited. I will finish reading it in the next few days, and I will watch your videos again. I hope to be able to quote some of your contents in my book, but I will specify that the contents come from your book, so I hope it is alright with you.
I deeply understand that God has called you to do this great thing of exposing the heresies of Joseph Prince. Being attacked by the enemy is certain, but God will protect and vindicate you.”
Hou Song Liang, China
Brother Hou Song Liang told me that Joseph Prince’s heresies have gained much influence in China and infiltrated many churches there. Many pastors are also influenced by Joseph Prince’s false grace teachings. That is why he has to write a book in Chinese to address this growing problem.
Each and every Bishop, Pastor and Elder, including myself in Singapore must take responsibility for not doing enough to stop Joseph Prince (from Singapore) from spreading his heresies in Singapore and also to the many nations in the world (including China) over the many years. It is time that we wake up from our slumber.
If we, as Bishops, Pastors and Elders are still not taking any concrete action to address this cancerous problem that is affecting not just Singapore but also the many nations, then we would have to answer to God one day.
“To tolerate the spread of heresy without doing anything to curb it is to be a quiet accomplice to the treacherous evil.”
“Instead of being known as the Antioch of Asia, Singapore is now better and shamefully known as the world’s main exporter of heresy with Joseph Prince’s Pseudo-Grace Theology.” (George Ong)
Paul Cain who Prophesied about Joseph Prince in 1992 was Exposed to be a Homosexual & Drunkard (Dated 6 Nov 2020)
On 31 Oct 2020 (last Saturday), Joseph Prince and his organisation posted the following video on Youtube, https://youtu.be/969pMKL-Z2U (Click) showing that Paul Cain had prophesied in 1992 that Joseph Prince was going to be a fiery evangelist. This was also announced and the same video shown at all their online worship services of New Creation Church, the next day on 1 Nov 2020 (last Sunday).
First, let’s assume that the prophecy was true and Joseph Prince might have started well at the beginning of his ministry. But he went wayward not long afterwards. Also, what is crucial is not what was prophesied 28 years ago even though it may be true. What is vital is what has Joseph Prince been preaching in the last 20 over years? He has clearly been preaching heresies. This is a deceptive ploy by Joseph Prince to use a prophecy that had transpired 28 years ago to give credence to what he is preaching today, even though many of his teachings are heresies that could land people in hell.
Second, according to the description of this YouTube video on 31 Oct 2020, Joseph Prince is deceptively posturing himself as the new Martin Luther, when he is actually preaching Antinomianism, a false gospel that Martin Luther fought against. See Rev George Ong’s previous related videos:
Third, Paul Cain, who prophesied about Joseph Prince in 1992, was exposed to be a homosexual and drunkard (please see the 5 weblinks below). While many believers may have committed the most heinous sins, the grace of God is all-sufficient to forgive them. There are no sins, no matter how detestable, (whether they be mass murder or child-rape) that are beyond the grace of God to forgive, but only if there is true repentance (not the false repentance and false grace that Joseph Prince preaches). After viewing the 5 weblinks, you can come to your own conclusion whether Paul Cain, had indeed, repented. Many ‘non-Charismatic’ believers may also hold the view that Paul Cain, is ultimately, a false prophet, as a false prophet could also give a semblance of a ‘true prophecy’ (or perform miracles) under the power of the evil one.
Lindsay Lim Shares Her Testimony about Her 18-Year Journey with New Creation Church (1993-2011) &
Joseph Prince’s False Teachings
George Ong’s Comments:
Lindsay Lim is a brave lady who takes great risk of sharing her story with honesty. She has done what many wouldn’t even dare. She is doing this not for her own sake but for the sake of warning others to stay away from Joseph Prince’s false and deadly teachings and New Creation Church.
Lindsay Lim’s Testimony
“I am Lindsay Lim and I attended NCC regularly for 18 years (1993 – 2011). My previous church prior to New Creation Church (NCC) had a very work-based and legalistic environment. Naturally, it was so easy for me to be drawn to NCC as I saw it as a breath of fresh air. I was very regular in my care group attendance and attended all their worship services as well as mid-week Bible Study services faithfully. I bought almost all of Joseph Prince’s Sunday and mid-week services sermon cassette tapes, CDs and DVDs until my whole bookshelf was full of his teaching materials. I was involved in NCC’s Young Adults Ministry. In 2003 – 2006, I also led a care group. Eventually, I had to step down due to work commitments and also to spend more time at home with my mum who was at the final stage of her illness.
After some years with NCC, I began to notice how repetitive Joseph Prince’s sermons had become. It is always about God’s grace, God’s righteousness, faith and confession teaching, and how God wants us to be blessed, etc. It was very common for my care group or NCC members to give credit to Joseph Prince’s teaching when good things happened to them. Through the members’ words, it appeared that we often glorify Joseph Prince and his teachings unknowingly. Care Group meetings became a time to exalt Joseph Prince’s teachings and also to declare and proclaim all the good things we wanted to see happen in our life. As Joseph Prince taught us not to focus on or confess or talk about our negative situations, the members found it hard to share openly about problems and trials they were facing as they feared being seen as negative.

Peter Tok Yi Xiang’s Testimony about His Journey with New Creation Church (2014-2020)
& the False Teachings of Joseph Prince
George Ong’s Comments:
Although Peter Tok Yi Xiang is half my age, he has the courage of one who is twice his age. I take my hats off to him. He has the guts to do what many of his seniors don’t, to publicly share his journey with New Creation Church. The only reason he does this is to warn those who are still in New Creation Church to leave, and also to warn others from other churches not to delve into the heresies of Joseph Prince.
Peter Tok Yi Xiang’s Testimony
A. How I Ended Up in New Creation Church
“I attended New Creation Church for about 7 years from 2014 to 2020. In 2014 after graduating from the Singapore Institute of Management, I attended a discipleship training programme for a couple of months in my previous church. As most of the materials were based on the Sermon on the Mount, which detailed Christ’s expectations for His disciples, I felt disturbed as I thought I might not measure up. I didn’t realise then that if Christ expects me to be a committed disciple, He, through the Holy Spirit would empower me to be one. It was during this time that I started listening to Joseph Prince’s sermons. It was sort of refreshing to hear the messages he preached, which, at that time, was radically different and seemed to make sense.
It was in the same year of 2014 that I went to The Star Vista (the mall in which New Creation Church was located). It was my first time listening to Joseph Prince in person. He was preaching on the root of bitterness in Hebrews 12:15. He mentioned that the text has to do with our bitterness and that being justified by the law means one has fallen from grace or one has missed grace. If that happens, Christ will be of no effect to him. Of course, this was a false interpretation, which I didn’t realise then. It was only years later when I studied the issue in Hebrews 12:15, I realised that Joseph Prince had taken it out of context. The root of bitterness in Hebrews 12:15 is not the common bitterness that we experienced. But it has to do with apostasy and treating holiness and salvation with contempt (Hebrews 12:15 and Deuteronomy 29:18-19). But he falsely teaches that the root of bitterness was the common bitterness that we experienced, and he ascribed the cause of it to the law.
It seems we can blame everything on the law, thus relieving me of all my faults and sins. What a feel-good teaching that certainly was! That is why so many are drawn to New Creation Church because of Joseph Prince’s feel-good teachings. It sounded so good to our flesh as according to his teaching, there is nothing wrong with us or the sin that is in us (as every sin has been forgiven at the cross) but everything is wrong with what the law has done and can do to us. It was also at the time of my first visit to New Creation Church that I was feeling bitter. I felt somewhat ‘liberated’ listening to Joseph Prince on Hebrews 12:15 in 2014.
During the years in New Creation Church, I had accepted Joseph Prince’s sermon ‘unquestionably’, as I had wrongly assumed that a Pastor, including Pastor Joseph Prince, would have some form of authority regarding the preaching and interpretation of God’s word. What partly contributed to my acceptance of Joseph Prince’s teachings was also because nobody from my previous church had refuted his teachings. I reasoned that if Joseph Prince’s teachings were false, someone from my previous church would have refuted it. This was one serious mistake I made as I now realise we need to be like the Bereans (Acts 17:11) to check out what is taught even by preachers as no one is above God’s word.
How Could I Have Been So Stupid To Be Charmed By Joseph Prince? By Tony Wong-Jensen
“I was born and raised an Anglican. My father who was British came from Liverpool, England, and my mother from Fukien, China. Both parents come from Anglican families. My maternal grandparents were some of the earlier Christians trained by Hudson Taylor to be missionaries and sent to Singapore. As I grew up serving my country in the Singapore Armed Forces, I worshipped at St Andrew’s Cathedral, St James’ Church and St George’s Church as a licensed lay reader. The longest tenure was at St George’s for over twenty years.
I left St George’s Church for personal reasons. It was about that time that an acquaintance invited me to attend his church, New Creation Church. It was then located at Suntec City. I only attended a few services as I felt it was ridiculous having to queue for hours to get a seat. I must confess that when I first heard Joseph Prince preach, I was hooked. Here was a senior pastor who was charismatic and preached what I thought at the time made sense on grace Christianity. I bought all his books, printed and eBooks, CDs/DVDs and read all his books several times over. I was on a high. Little did I know that if I had checked everything that Joseph Prince spoke and wrote, against the Holy Scriptures, I would not have wasted my money and time.
It was in March 2020, during the COVID-19 that I felt the need to study some biblical courses, so I rang the staff of New Creation Church to enquire what biblical courses they had to offer but was stunned when told there was none. How could a megachurch not have any training is beyond me? Disappointed, I turned to the internet where I chanced upon Precept Ministries and their courses. I immediately purchased all the books by Kay Arthur on how to study the Bible and the New Inductive Study Series and the Precept Upon Precept study series.
It was not until just a few weeks ago (from 14 Oct 2020) that I dined with a retired Anglican Bishop, Bishop Kuan Kim Seng, who is a close friend whom I had not seen in decades and he was an ex-colleague in the Singapore Armed Forces. We spent hours catching up on things and when he asked me where I worshipped, I told him New Creation Church. Then he told me something about Joseph Prince which made me fall off my chair. He told me that Joseph Prince is not a true pastor and that he is a heretic who spouts nothing but heresies in his sermons and books. Boy, that was a great eye-opener and great surprise to me! I can now understand why New Creation Church doesn’t conduct any biblical studies. It is to prevent people from knowing the truth of the scriptures and be dependent just on Joseph Prince’s Sunday preaching. I still cannot believe how I was charmed and taken in by Joseph Prince. It must have been the satanic powers of charm that he exercises on people.
Bishop Kuan then referred me to Revd George Ong’s website and YouTube channel and his crusade against Joseph Prince’s heresies. I watched all his YouTube videos up to date, then (now, 43 videos in all), and started reading his 10 volumes of eBooks on his website. After viewing all his videos and reading a portion of his eBooks, I was convinced beyond any doubt by what Revd George Ong had said and written – that Joseph Prince, is indeed, a wolf in sheepskin. Later that day, I went home angry and threw away and deleted all of Joseph Prince’s books, CDs/DVDs in printed and electronic form.
I am indebted to my friend, Bishop Kuan, who alerted me to the heresies of Joseph Prince and for putting me in contact with Revd George Ong, and ever so grateful to the ‘lonely’ and difficult work to which God has called Revd George Ong to do. Telling the truth is a difficult thing to do. You either make good Christian friends or you lose some. Revd George Ong has had it all. My prayer is that Revd George Ong will be strengthened and protected by God on his ‘lonely’ crusade against the evil heresies of Joseph Prince.”

Rev Ho Chee Sin (Former Bishop of the Methodist Church in Singapore): Pastors & Elders of Churches Must Publicly Speak Up Against the Heresies of Joseph Prince
“Rev George Ong is a well-regarded and faithful itinerant preacher and teacher. His messages can be interesting and full of humour, and yet on other occasions, it can also be serious and sober. He is an outstanding communicator of the Word of God, which is evident to his hearers. I believe that the Holy Spirit always empowers him to share God’s message.
George is very focused on what God has called him to do and does not mince his words when he painstakingly points out the seriousness of errant preaching and teaching as in the case of Joseph Prince, a prominent but iniquitous preacher in Singapore.
Heresy is a dangerous thing that can lead people to the lake of fire. The threat and influence of the Pseudo-grace (or Hyper-grace) teachings by Joseph Prince who anchors the biggest church in Singapore, is not something which is academic, but it has already permeated many of the churches in Singapore and around the world. The battle against false teachers will intensify as Jesus and Paul have already prophesied that false teachers will arise in the last days.
Nourishing the flock with sound doctrine, and guarding the flock against savage wolves is a key duty of pastors and elders. Any neglect is to the detriment of their flock. So, the task of preventing heresies from seeping into the church must be taken seriously by the pastors and elders of churches. We can do something concrete by publicly speaking up against the heresies of Joseph Prince. The sheep need to hear the voice of true shepherds, or the voice of false shepherds will influence and choke them to their destruction.
I thank God that Rev George Ong is painstakingly sticking out his neck by highlighting to the church about the threat of such deadly teachings by Joseph Prince. It is a tough and dangerous calling that few would be willing to undertake.”

Glenn Fong’s Testimony about His Journey with New Creation Church & the False Teachings of Joseph Prince
It sure takes lots of courage and risks for Glenn Fong, who attended (and later served in) New Creation Church for 15 years, from 2001-2015 to share his testimony in such a vulnerable way. He is willing to stick his neck out in order to warn others about the false teachings of Joseph Prince. May many more believers, especially pastors, elders and leaders, take inspiration from Glenn Fong and be courageous enough to come forward to share and warn others about the sinister teachings of Joseph Prince.
“Fighting for trivial truths is being foolhardy; running away from contending for cardinal truths is being cowardly.” (George Ong)

A. My Introduction to New Creation Church
In 2001, I left the church I was attending and serving, and I backslid for about a year. One day, a friend of mine asked if I wanted to go to church. I was reluctant at first, but after a few attempts to meet up, I decided to give it a shot. When I first stepped into the Rock auditorium at Suntec City, it was impressive. The congregation was so big that we had to queue for an hour to get in. The worship team was phenomenal, and the venue was great. But the best thing that I experienced was the preaching; it was out of this world. I have never heard such ‘sound teaching’ my entire life (which I later discovered that many of them were unsound). That was New Creation Church in the year 2001.
Reverend George Ong
George Ong is an engaging speaker at organisations and churches, both in Singapore and overseas.
He has been an itinerant speaker for 20 years and has preached in more than 200 churches across different denominations.
He has the unique ability to reach out to all age groups: from children, youths and adults to the elderly.
Marked by clarity, passion and a touch of humour, his messages have touched and transformed many lives.
To date, he has written one of the thickest books ever produced in the world: ‘Joseph Prince: Shepherd or Wolf?’ comprising 10 volumes in 4,800 pages.
He has also produced 56 volumes of humour books, containing 27,000 jokes in 10,300 pages, which is possibly a world record.
On a lighter note, I have also produced 56 volumes of humour books, containing more than 27,000 jokes in about 10,300 pages.
No one in my knowledge has produced as many as the same number of humour books that I had. Producing 56 humour books is definitely a Singaporean record, probably an Asian record, and possibly, a world record. I am not a guy who is crazy about breaking records. If any records are broken, it is purely incidental. I am only interested in accomplishing what God has gifted and called me to do.
It is not a joke to produce 56 volumes of humour books. No amount of words can describe the massive task and the humongous effort that went into producing the books. Enormous discipline, untiring diligence, unwavering passion, unyielding focus, dogged perseverance, and most of all, the supernatural empowerment of God, all went into making the impossible, possible. Glory to God for His strength to accomplish one of life’s most unique challenges of producing 56 humour books, which is unequalled in most parts of the world.
Though these 56 Humour Books are unique and different from each other, the goal is the same – to provide a resource for teachers, lecturers, communicators and preachers. The humour in the books can be used to spice up a point, illustrate a lesson and make learning a fun and enjoyable experience. Most of all, the books are written for those who just want a good laugh.
