Joseph Prince Vs David Pawson, Lawrence Khong, Chew Weng Chee, Michael Brown & George Ong on future sins forgiven? – by Rev George Ong

 

Excerpt No 1 from the Article:

 

My Parting Shot to Joseph Prince:

 

Hey Joe,

 

you really have the gift

 

of filling your church with goats.

 

How?

 

Just by teaching that all their future sins are forgiven

 

without them having to do anything.

 

Even sheep would be corrupted by such teachings

 

to become goats.

 

New Creation Church male married member asks:

 

Is this true, Pastor Prince,

 

that all my future sins are forgiven?

 

Joseph Prince’s reply:

 

Yes, that’s what the Bible teaches;

 

whatever sins that you will commit

 

in the future will be forgiven.

 

When I say all, I mean all.

 

This includes the adultery you will commit with Lucy,

 

2 years from now,

 

the romantic fling that you will have with Mary

 

3 years from now,

 

the lie you will tell your wife,

 

that you didn’t go on a trip with another woman,

 

which you did,

 

4 years from now.

 

(George Ong:

 

Just imagine, I am only focusing on the adultery sins,

 

and I haven’t even dealt with the other kinds of sins).

 

I don’t have to continue from here

 

for you to imagine how revolting and horrifying

 

Joseph Prince’s all-future-sins-are-forgiven teachings

 

would lead to.

 

Joseph Prince is bound to defend himself

 

that those people who commit adultery

 

are not true believers in the first place.

 

Hey Joe,

 

If that is the case,

 

why did you pronounce and declare those

 

who said the sinner’s prayer

 

as children of God.

 

In the sermon on 12 May 2024, Joseph Prince said;

‘If you’ve never put your trust

 

in the Lord Jesus Christ,

 

pray this prayer with me.

 

And the moment you prayed this prayer

 

from your heart,

 

that very instant,

 

you are now a child of God

 

seated with Christ in heavenly places.

 

Your new life begins and will never end.”

 

You pronounced them as the saved people of God

 

after they said the sinner’s prayer.

 

Then, when they commit adultery,

 

you turn around and defend yourself

 

that they aren’t Christians in the first place.

 

If you want the Kiasu option

 

of later declaring them as unbelievers,

 

then you had better stop your Gung-ho practice

 

of declaring them as Christians

 

the moment they said the sinner’s prayer.

 

Simple logic does not allow you

 

to have your cake and eat it too.

 

You better go for your logic class

 

as your sense of logic is getting worse by the day.

 

Hey Joe,

 

There is a song ‘Not alone’,

 

which will be sung

 

at the National Day Celebrations of Singapore.

 

Like all Singaporeans, you are not alone,

 

but as a false teacher, you are, indeed, very alone. 

 

Tell me, which Church Father

 

preaches the same doctrine as you do

 

– that all future sins are automatically forgiven at the cross. 

 

Please name them?

 

Come on, don’t give me that quizzical look!

 

Don’t have, right?

 

Tell me, which Singapore Church or Pastor

 

teach your same doctrine

 

that future sins are forgiven

 

without confession and repentance?

 

Come on, don’t scratch your head.

 

There is none, means there is none.

 

You can scratch until the whole crop of your hair falls,

 

none means none. 

 

Finally, not only David Pawson, Lawrence Khong,

 

Chew Weng Chee, Michael Brown and George Ong

 

teach against your future-sins-are-forgiven doctrine,

 

the whole Historic Church and Contemporary Church

 

are also against your evil doctrine

 

that would lead people to licentiousness.

 

So, Joseph Prince,

 

your Lone Ranger status double confirmed Liao Lah.

 

Excerpt No 2 from the Article (from George Ong’s 7-minute video):

 

Finally, the inevitable outcome of Joseph Prince’s teaching

 

that our future sins are forgiven

 

without the need for confession or repentance

 

only provides ‘believers’

 

with a blank cheque for future sinning.

 

You know, I (George Ong)

 

was talking to a lady not too long ago.

 

This lady told me (George Ong) her son-in-law

 

attending New Creation Church committed adultery.

 

And the son-in-law tell her,

 

‘All my sins are forgiven.’

 

You know something is wrong.

 

You know, this guy (Joseph Prince) doesn’t bother.

 

You know, all these kinds of Christians

 

are actually going to hell, so-called Christians.

 

(This article was also sent to Rev Dr Ngoei Foong Nghian, General Secretary, National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS) office, and for the attention of the Executive Committee Members.)

In the sermon preached on 19 May 2024, 6 days ago,

 

Joseph Prince said;

“God sees everything about your life,

 

beginning to the end.

 

And God knew all the sins even before you commit them.

 

So, when God says Christ bore our sins,

 

the cross is outside time.

 

He died for all the sins of people

 

from Adam, all in the Old Testament,

 

all the way to His time.

 

He also died for you.

 

So, actually, your future sins are all forgiven,

 

which a lot of people have problem.”

 

While the first half of what Joseph Prince said is true,

 

the second half that he said is false.

 

While it is true

 

that the provision for the forgiveness of sins

 

is provided for at the cross,

 

for everyone in every generation,

 

it isn’t true

 

that all future sins are automatically forgiven

 

without repentance and confession.

 

1. Michael Brown disagrees with Joseph Prince

 

In a teaching session, Michael Brown said;

to view the 50-second video:

 

“Hyper grace teaches this.

 

The fundamental error of Hyper grace

 

is to say this that the moment you are saved,

 

God pronounces your sins forgiven,

 

not just every sin you’ve committed,

 

but in advance,

 

pronounces your future sins forgiven.

 

We don’t say,

 

‘God, 6 months from now, if I’ve committed adultery,

 

or a year from now, if I rob a bank,

 

or 3 years from now, if I murdered someone,

 

covered that as well.’

 

No, no.

 

The fundamental error of Hyper grace

 

is to say that the moment you’re saved,

 

God forgives your future sins in advance.

 

Therefore, the Holy Spirit will never convict you of sin.

 

Therefore, you never need to confess your sin.

 

But that’s the fundamental error of Hyper grace

 

that your future sins are pronounced forgiven,

 

the moment you’re saved.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

The fact that Michael Brown had to state

 

the fundamental error of Hyper grace

 

3 times in his short comment,

 

ought to arrest our attention

 

– that the fundamental error of Hyper grace

 

which Joseph Prince is a part,

 

is the teaching that all future sins are forgiven.

 

To be fundamentally wrong

 

is to be seriously wrong at its very foundation.

 

Nothing good, and in fact, great harm,

 

have come out of such teachings

 

that rot at its very foundation.

 

In ‘Hyper-Grace, Exposing the Dangers of the Modern Grace Message,’

 

Michael Brown wrote:

 

“So, Jesus died for our sins on the cross,

 

but forgiveness for our sins was not transacted

 

until the day we repented and believed.

 

And what sins were forgiven at that point in time?

 

The sins we had already committed.

 

How it could be otherwise?

 

That was the debt we owed

 

—the sins we had committed,

 

not the sins we had not yet committed.

 

… What about sins I hadn’t committed yet?

 

The question never crossed my mind, not a single time.

 

And I imagine it was the same thing with you.

 

Why in the world would we be thinking about future sins?

 

And who in their right mind would say,

 

“Praise God!

 

I am forgiven for all the wicked things I did,

 

and I am already forgiven

for all the wicked things I will do

 

from here on for the rest of my life.”

 

Who would ever think like this?

 

Honestly, in all my years in the Lord,

 

and having seen many people come to the Lord,

 

I have never once met anyone

 

who thought along these lines

 

when they got saved.

 

… Simply stated,

 

there is not a single verse anywhere in the Bible

 

that pronounces us already forgiven for our future sins

 

(meaning, sins we have not yet committed).

 

Not one verse.

 

Nowhere.

 

Not even a hint of such a concept.

 

All the promises of forgiveness

 

have to do with sins we have already committed,

 

since God is dealing with us in space and time,

 

and He only forgives us for what we have actually done.”

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Michael Brown wrote:

 

“… Simply stated,

 

there is not a single verse anywhere in the Bible

 

that pronounces us already forgiven for our future sins

 

(meaning, sins we have not yet committed).

 

Not one verse.

 

Nowhere.

 

Not even a hint of such a concept.”

 

If there isn’t a single verse

 

that could support the teaching

 

that our future sins are automatically forgiven,

 

why is Joseph Prince stubbornly insisting

 

on teaching such erroneous truths?

 

The reason is

 

Joseph Prince isn’t guided by the Holy Spirit

 

but by a satanic spirit

 

that desires to see the erroneous handling

 

and the corruption of God’s truth in His word.

 

2. David Pawson contradicts Joseph Prince

 

In a teaching session, David Pawson said;

 

Please click here

 

to view the 30-second video:

 

“And I said,

 

‘Where did you get all this from?’

 

And they said,

 

‘Singapore.’

 

First, in teaching that when you come to Christ,

 

all your future sins are forgiven, as well as your past.

 

Now, I can’t find any trace in my Bible

 

of God forgiving sins

 

that have not yet been committed.”

 

You must remember that there is no comparison

 

between David Pawson and Joseph Prince.

 

David Pawson is a well-respected Bible teacher

 

and Joseph Prince,

 

a serial liar, serial hypocrite and a serial double talker.

 

Comparing David Pawson and Joseph Prince

 

is like comparing

 

between black and white or earth and heaven.

 

Like Michael Brown,

 

David Pawson said that he can’t find any trace in the Bible

 

that sins are forgiven before they are committed.

 

That proves that Joseph Prince is a liar

 

when he teaches that all future sins are forgiven

 

without confession and repentance.

 

3. Dr Chew Weng Chee contradicts Joseph Prince

 

In a teaching session, Dr Chew Weng Chee said;

“The Hyper grace theology,

 

Antinomianism is a deception.

 

In other words, it’s okay to sin,

 

no need to repent, one.

 

Why?

 

Because God is so gracious.

 

All our sins, past, present and future,

 

all forgiven already, mah,

 

why repent?”

 

4. Lawrence Khong contradicts Joseph Prince

 

In a teaching session, Lawrence Khong said;

“O, this teaching, never mind,

 

now that you’re Christian,

 

everything is taken care of.

 

Your future sin is taken care of.

 

Don’t worry.

 

Just no need to confess.

 

Just go and enjoy the love of God.

 

The Bible says, do not be deceived.

 

God is not mocked.

 

Whatsoever you sow,

 

and this is speaking to Christian,

 

you will reap.”

 

5. George Ong contradicts Joseph Prince

 

In ‘Destined To Reign,’

 

Joseph Prince wrote that 2 Peter 1:9,

 

2 Peter 1:9 NIV

9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins,

 

was referring to the forgiveness of all sins,

 

meaning past, present and future sins.

 

Joseph Prince has blatantly and dishonestly

 

added to God’s word

 

when he used the word ‘all’.

 

I have checked 63 Bible translations

 

and none of them used the word ‘all’.

 

Many used

 

‘past sins’, ‘old sins’, ‘former sins’, etc.

 

Just 3 examples

 

and you can look up the rest on the Internet:

 

2 Peter 1:9 NIV

9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

 

2 Peter 1:9 NKJV

9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

 

2 Peter 1:9 ESV

9 For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins.

“Joseph Prince is giving the false impression

 

that readers lack these things

 

referring to these seven virtues V5-7

 

because “He has forgotten that the blood of Jesus

 

has purchased for him the forgiveness of all his sins”

 

and that you have been cleansed from all your sins.”

 

When Joseph Prince says “the forgiveness of all his sins”

 

and “you have been cleansed from all your sins,”

 

he is referring to the forgiveness and cleansing

 

of all their past, present and future sins.

 

That’s right, when he used all,

 

of course he’s referring to past, present future,

 

but it’s only the past.

 

He’s reading his ideas (the word ‘all’) into the text again.

 

2 Peter never says, 1:9 never says,

 

the forgiveness of all his sins

 

or the cleansing of all your sins,

 

but only the cleansing of old or past sins.

 

NKJV: has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

 

NIV: forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

 

GNT: have forgotten that you have been purified from your past sins.

 

NCV: has forgotten that he was made clean from his past sins.

 

NET: he has forgotten about the cleansing of his past sins.

 

CEB: forgetting that they were cleansed from their past sins.

 

You see, he (Joseph Prince)

 

read into the text (the word ‘all’).

 

How can he not be a false prophet

 

when it’s just referring to past sins?”

Please see the Appendix

 

for the verbatim notes.

 

In summary,

 

from David Pawson, Michael Brown

 

and my teaching videos,

 

from the Book of Hebrews, James and Peter,

 

the teaching by Joseph Prince

 

that all future sins are automatically forgiven,

 

is demolished.

 

But that’s not all.

 

First, Hebrews 10:2 and Hebrews 12:1-4

 

Hebrews 10:2 NKJV

2 “For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins.”

 

Hebrews 10:2, often cited by Joseph Prince,

 

that since believers have been cleansed of their sins,

 

we should henceforth no longer be conscious of our sins

 

because all our sins have been forgiven.

 

If that were so,

 

Hebrews 12:1-4, becomes utterly meaningless

 

if we are supposed to have no consciousness of our sins:

 

Hebrews 12:1-4 NIV

1 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. 4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.”

 

The truth is,

 

while Hebrews 10:2

 

teaches that our past sins have been forgiven,

 

Hebrews 12:1,4,

 

clearly state that there are present and future sins

 

that are not forgiven

 

and must be repented of

 

if they are committed.

 

The half-truth deception of Joseph Prince in action again

 

– showing the half-truth of Hebrews 10:2,

 

while hiding the other half-truth of Hebrews 12:1,4 from you. 

 

Second, 1 Corinthians 5:1-5

 

1 Corinthians 5:1-5 NIV

1 “It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father’s wife. 2 And you are proud! Shouldn’t you rather have gone into mourning and have put out of your fellowship the man who has been doing this? 3 For my part, even though I am not physically present, I am with you in spirit. As one who is present with you in this way, I have already passed judgment in the name of our Lord Jesus on the one who has been doing this. 4 So when you are assembled and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present, 5 hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.”

 

Paul teaches that there are present sins

 

that the church has the responsibility to deal with,

 

and to judge and correct,

 

and if we don’t,

 

they can have eternal consequences.

 

But Joseph Prince teaches

 

that since all our present sins are already forgiven,

 

we are not to be conscious of our sins,

 

and we do not have to confess our sins

 

but to confess our righteousness.

 

Who’s telling the truth

 

– Apostle Paul or Joseph Prince?

 

The lesson that Paul was trying to teach

 

in 1 Corinthians 5:1-5 is that

 

present sins which are not repented of are not forgiven

 

and have to be dealt with.

 

Third, 1 Corinthians 11:27-32

 

1 Corinthians 11:27-32 NIV

27 “So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. 29 For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves. 30 That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep. 31 But if we were more discerning with regard to ourselves, we would not come under such judgment. 32 Nevertheless, when we are judged in this way by the Lord, we are being disciplined so that we will not be finally condemned with the world.”

 

Paul teaches that

 

if the present sins of the Corinthians and us believers

 

are not dealt with;

 

they can have serious consequences.

 

But Joseph Prince teaches

 

that all our sins have been forgiven at the cross

 

and there is no more need for any action

 

to deal with our present sins

 

or any confession of sins for believers.

 

Who’s telling the truth

 

– Apostle Paul or Joseph Prince?

 

Fourth, 2 Corinthians 12:21

 

2 Corinthians 12:21 NIV

21 “I am afraid that when I come again my God will humble me before you, and I will be grieved over many who have sinned earlier and have not repented of the impurity, sexual sin and debauchery in which they have indulged.”

 

Paul teaches that the present sins of the Corinthians,

 

who are believers in the New Covenant

 

that he grieved over,

 

must be repented of.

 

But Joseph Prince teaches

 

that confession of sins and repentance

 

is only done once at conversion,

 

and a Christian does not need to confess or repent

 

as their sins have all been forgiven

 

– and if you confess your sins, you are insulting God.

 

Who’s telling the truth

 

– Apostle Paul or Joseph Prince?

 

In conclusion,

 

if the author of Hebrews, James, Peter, Paul

 

and Jesus Himself (covered in the previous article),

 

taught against Joseph Prince’s position

 

that future sins are all forgiven

 

without the need for confession and repentance,

 

nothing more needs to be said.

 

If people still stubbornly and wilfully

 

choose to go with Joseph Prince,

 

even God cannot stop them,

 

lest He be accused of not respecting their free will,

 

and lest He be accused of making them as robots,

 

forcing them to act against their free choice.

that would lead people to licentiousness.

 

So, Joseph Prince,

Appendix

 

Verbatim notes

 

of George Ong’s 7-minute video:

 

“Then he adds,

 

‘Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.’

 

So, he (Joseph Prince) based on this phrase,

 

‘(Their) sins and lawless acts I will remember no more’

 

to teach that all our sins,

 

including our present and future sins,

 

have all been forgiven.

 

This is a half-truth.

 

He never show you the other half-truth:  

 

Hebrew 10:26-27 NIV

26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.

 

So, we must put both texts together.

 

We must put (Hebrews) 10:16-17

 

and put (Hebrews) 10:26-27 together.

 

When we put them together,

 

we will come to the conclusion

 

that while our past sins have been forgiven,

 

our present sins are not forgiven

 

because he (Joseph Prince)

 

only harped on this half-truth.

 

He only show you this half.

 

He never show you this half. 

 

It’s very clear.

 

If we deliberately keep on sinning

 

after we have received the knowledge of the truth,

 

you will be under judgment,

 

there is no forgiveness and repentance.

 

Just as an aside,

 

you know how he explain away this text.

 

Oh, this (text) refers to people

 

who are so near, yet so far

 

– the Jews who are not really believers.

 

So, you know, when they keep on sinning,

 

it refers to them that they keep on rejecting Christ.

 

If they keep on rejecting Christ,

 

you see, they are in trouble.

 

It’s not.

 

These are believers.

 

We, we.

 

The author is we;

 

the author is a Christian.

 

And some more he (Joseph Prince) say,

 

Paul wrote Hebrews.

 

So, if it’s true that Paul wrote Hebrews,

 

Paul is saying we.

 

If we deliberately keep on sinning.

 

So, this cannot be referring (to unbelievers).

 

And then he says, ‘receive the knowledge of the truth.’

 

Oh, receive only, they only know in their mind.

 

It’s not true.

 

The phrase ‘receive the knowledge of the truth,

 

I can prove it to you,

 

I have a different seminar on (Book of) Hebrews,

 

that it’s actually becoming Christians.

 

But he (Joseph Prince) will try and explain away. 

 

Now, we come to James 4:8-9.

 

Now, if our sins are truly all forgiven,

 

why would James tell them to purify your hearts?

 

If our sins are all forgiven,

 

why would James ask them to grieve over their sins,

 

to mourn over their sins and to wail over their sins?

 

These 3 words are strong emotive words.

 

So, it cannot be that all sins are forgiven

 

according to James.

 

If our sins are all forgiven,

 

this phrase will have no meaning;

 

‘If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.

 

Therefore confess your sins to each other.’ (Jas 5:14-16).

 

If our sins are forgiven,

 

James wouldn’t have tell them,

 

you need to confess your sins to each other.

 

Then, he’s caught, Joseph Prince is caught, right.

 

Confess your sins to each other.

 

How does he get out of this predicament?

 

He (Joseph Prince) begin to say,

 

‘It’s okay to confess your sins to each other.

 

But it’s not okay to confess your sins to God

 

because your sins to God have all been forgiven.

 

But it’s okay to confess your sins to each other.’

 

This is total nonsense, right.

 

Confessing, is still sin.

 

How can you say it’s okay to confess to one another

 

and it’s not okay to confess to God.

 

If you need to confess to one another,

 

more importantly, you need to confess to God.

 

That’s the game he’s playing.

 

Now, he (Joseph Prince) said 2 contradictory statements.

 

Number one, he (Joseph Prince) said that

 

we should no longer have consciousness of sins.

 

And yet he said

 

it’s okay to confess your sins to each other.

 

When you confess, you are conscious, Mah.

 

When you confess, right,

 

you must be conscious of your sins, right.

 

How can you say we shall (have) no more conscious,

 

don’t talk about sin,

 

yet, it’s still okay to confess your sins to each other?

 

Apostle Peter is also teaching against this (Acts 18:18-24).

 

How do we argue using this text (Acts 18:18-24)

 

against Joseph Prince teaching on sin?

 

So, if all sins are forgiven,

 

why is there a need to repent

 

because Peter asked him (Simon) to repent

 

that he may forgive you.

 

You see. So, it doesn’t make sense.

 

If it’s true that sins are forgiven,

 

there’s no need to repent.

 

And some more, ah, Peter said,

 

‘May your money perish with you.’

 

That’s very serious.

 

In other words, if you don’t repent,

 

you’re not forgiven, you will perish.

 

So that’s why I said Joseph Prince’s teaching

 

can lead people to hell.

 

He’s saying no repentance.

 

Repentance is only of your mind.

 

Doesn’t involve sin.

 

This kind of teaching leads people to hell.

 

Joseph Prince’s teaching

 

that you don’t have to confess or repent of your sins

 

directly contradicts what Peter told Simon

 

that if he doesn’t, he will perish.

 

In other words, if we listen to Joseph Prince

 

and refuse to confess and repent,

 

we, too, will perish and go to hell.

 

Furthermore, the all-future-sins-are-forgiven

 

-without-confession teaching of Joseph Prince

 

not only does not meet the test of scriptures,

 

it also does not square with logic.

 

To tell a Christian

 

that all his future sins are forgiven, unconditionally

 

without the need for repentance,

 

is like telling a child he doesn’t have to say sorry

 

for all his future wrongdoings in his teens

 

– through his adult years

 

– and to the end of his life.

 

This would drive every parent up the wall!

 

Teaching that all our future sins are forgiven

 

is like telling a criminal

 

who has just been released from prison

 

that the crimes that he plans to commit in the future

 

will not be held against him.

 

Any government that pardons all future crimes of every criminal

 

is mentally sick.

 

And here we have Joseph Prince

 

who crazily teaches that all our future sins

 

have been completely forgiven.

 

If no one can accept that the future crimes of a criminal

 

can be given an unconditional and prior pardon,

 

isn’t it crazy to believe that our future sins

 

can have this bizarre privilege?

 

Finally, the inevitable outcome of Joseph Prince’s teaching

 

that our future sins are forgiven

 

without the need for confession or repentance

 

only provides ‘believers’

 

with a blank cheque for future sinning.

 

But he (Joseph Prince) doesn’t even bother

 

there are all kinds of believers.

 

New believers, immature believers,

 

naïve believers, carnal believers,

 

who will think differently.

 

They will say to themselves

 

if I commit a great sin, not too bad

 

because Joseph Prince have been telling me

 

I’m once righteous always righteous.

 

My sins have all been taken care of.

 

You know, I was talking to a lady not too long ago.

 

This lady told me her son-in-law

 

attending New Creation Church committed adultery.

 

And the son-in-law tell her,

 

‘All my sins are forgiven.’

 

You know something is wrong.

 

You know, this guy (Joseph Prince) doesn’t bother.

 

You know, all these kinds of Christians

 

are actually going to hell, so-called Christians.

 

Hyflux.

 

Oh, once he (Joseph Prince) boasts Hyflux.

 

She’s the poster girl of his success.

 

What happened?

 

You see. You know the fruits,

 

the so-called fruits are not really fruits

 

There are many of this Hyflux people

 

hiding around where he doesn’t want to expose.

 

So, he just want to highlight certain people

 

and then wow, as if it’s everything.”   

Joseph Prince is an Antichrist in his future sins are forgiven teaching – by Rev George Ong

 

Announcements:

 

The issue about whether all future sins are forgiven

 

will be covered in greater detail in an Article

 

sometime next week.

 

This Article is one of my shortest Articles.

 

Please see the Appendix

 

for the Featured YouTube comments.

 

Excerpt No 1 from the Article:

 

If all sins are forgiven as Joseph Prince falsely teaches,

 

then why would Christ command

 

the 5 churches in Revelation chapters 2-3

 

to repent?

 

Joseph Prince, this is logic 101

 

– and if you can’t even grasp that,

 

Li Bo Chian Tor Liao Lah (no future for you, already).

 

Excerpt No 2 from the Article:

 

How can Joseph Prince,

 

who teaches against Jesus point-blank

 

on the doctrine of sin

 

say at the same time

 

he is preaching the Bible Jesus?

 

How can Joseph Prince

 

who teaches against the words of the ascended Christ

 

say at the same time that he loves Jesus and His words?

 

Friends, anyone such as Joseph Prince,

 

who dares to teach against Jesus, who is God Himself,

 

can never be a true shepherd

 

but a wolf in sheepskin

 

and an Antichrist.

 

Haven’t I told you that this argument alone,

 

based on the words of Jesus as the ascended Christ

 

in Revelation chapters 2-3,

 

is sufficient to expose Joseph Prince’s heretical teaching

 

on the doctrine of sin

 

and him as a heretic

 

and an Antichrist?

  

This only proves that Joseph Prince

 

is not a child of God

 

but a child of the devil.

 

who is out to go against

 

and destroy the teachings of Christ Jesus.

In the sermon on 19 May 2024, 5 days ago,

 

Joseph Prince said;

“When God says I forgive you of all your sins,

 

it is not, I forgive you today

 

but tomorrow, fresh sins need fresh forgiveness,

 

fresh sins need fresh forgiveness.

 

No!”

 

In a teaching session, George Ong said;

 

Please click here

 

to view the 30-second video:

 

“First, Joseph Prince teaches that all our sins are forgiven,

 

and there is no need for confession and repentance of sins.

 

But you remember, Jesus asked 5 of the 7 churches

 

to repent, repent, repent.

 

Repent from what?

 

Must be repent from sins, Mah.

 

You see, logic will tell you;

 

how can Joseph Prince be right, all your sins (are forgiven),

 

when Jesus asked, repent?

 

Repent from what?

 

Repent from sins, right.

 

So, it’s a direct hit, you see.

 

I mean if all sins are forgiven,

 

why would Jesus ask them to repent?

 

This is just logic.”

 

There are many doctrinal arguments that I can muster

 

to destroy this rubbish that Joseph Prince teaches

 

that every future sin is forgiven at the cross.

 

(I hope to deal with them

 

in another article sometime next week.)

 

But I’m going to surface just one argument,

 

and this one argument alone

 

is enough to destroy Joseph Prince’s nonsensical doctrine.

 

This one argument has to do with what Jesus said

 

in Revelation chapters 2-3 to 5 of the 7 churches:

 

Revelation 2:5 NIV (Ephesus)

5 “Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.”

 

Revelation 2:15-16 NIV (Pergamum)

15 “Likewise, you also have those who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans. 16 Repent therefore! Otherwise, I will soon come to you and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.”

 

Revelation 2:22-23 NIV (Thyatira)

22 So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. 23 I will strike her children dead…”

 

Revelation 3:3 NIV (Sardis)

3 “Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.”

 

Revelation 3:16,19 NIV (Laodicea)

16 “So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.” 19 “Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent.”

 

It is crystal clear

 

that Jesus was commanding these 5 churches to repent.

 

Repent from what?

 

Repent from their various sins

 

as stated in the respective passages.

 

Why repent?

 

Because of their sins.

 

It is as simple as that!

 

If all sins are forgiven as Joseph Prince falsely teaches,

 

then why would Christ command them to repent?

 

Joseph Prince, this is logic 101

 

– and if you can’t even grasp that,

 

Li Bo Chian Tor Liao Lah (no future for you, already).

 

If all their sins are already forgiven,

 

Christ would just have told them gently:

 

“Yes, I know you have sinned against me.

 

But no worries,

 

all of those sins, and every sin

 

you will ever commit in the future

 

have been forgiven already

 

when I died on the cross for your sins.

 

And all your sins that you are committing now,

 

and will commit in the future

 

will automatically go away.”

 

Did Christ tell them this?

 

Of course not.

 

On the contrary,

 

Christ commanded them to repent of their sins.

 

Joseph Prince, let me ask you,

 

why are you so daring to contradict Jesus

 

that every single future sin is forgiven at the cross

 

and that there are no more fresh sins to be forgiven,

 

when Jesus Himself commanded the 5 churches

 

to repent of their sins in Revelation chapters 2-3?

 

Jesus was not only commanding them to repent of their sins,

 

but He was also harshly reprimanding and warning them

 

with severe punishments if they don’t repent of their sins.

 

Why would Jesus warn them of severe punishments

 

if they don’t repent,

 

if they are already forgiven of all their future sins?

 

This shows that Joseph Prince

 

is not only heretical in his teachings,

 

but he is also sorely lacking in simple logic!

 

Joseph Prince, let me ask you,

 

when Jesus said those words,

 

commanding them to repent of their sins,

 

did Jesus say them

 

when he was on earth

 

during His 3 years of ministry in the gospels,

 

or when He was already ascended?

 

Jesus said those words as the ascended Christ.

 

(To state the obvious,

 

for the sake of Joseph Prince,

 

Jesus also said those words after the cross,

 

not before it.)

 

The greatest irony of it all is that

 

Joseph Prince has been harping in his teaching

 

that the words of Christ in the gospels

 

are not applicable to New Covenant believers,

 

because they were spoken before the cross.

 

But the words of the ascended Christ,

 

were spoken after the cross,

 

and according to Joseph Prince’s own teaching,

 

these words were words given to Paul

 

who then wrote the Pauline epistles,

 

and they are entirely applicable

 

to New Covenant believers.

 

If that is so, why is Joseph Prince

 

teaching against the words of the ascended Christ

 

in Revelation chapters 2-3

 

that he so highly prized?

 

How can Joseph Prince,

 

who teaches against Jesus point-blank

 

on the doctrine of sin

 

say at the same time

 

he is preaching the Bible Jesus?

 

How can Joseph Prince

 

who teaches against the words of the ascended Christ

 

say at the same time that he loves Jesus and His words?

 

Friends, anyone such as Joseph Prince,

 

who dares to teach against Jesus, who is God Himself,

 

can never be a true shepherd

 

but a wolf in sheepskin

 

and an Antichrist.

 

Haven’t I told you that this argument alone,

 

based on the words of Jesus as the ascended Christ

 

in Revelation chapters 2-3,

 

is sufficient to expose Joseph Prince’s heretical teaching

 

on the doctrine of sin

 

and him as a heretic

 

and an Antichrist?

  

This only proves that Joseph Prince

 

is not a child of God

 

but a child of the devil.

 

who is out to go against

 

and destroy the teachings of Christ Jesus.

“There are pastor and New Creation Church members

 

that commit adultery

 

and have extramarital affairs within his church.

 

Joseph Prince should go and check with them

 

why isn’t God’s grace working for them

 

despite God’s love for them?

 

Joseph Prince has underestimated

 

the power of sins of the flesh

 

and also the choice of the free will.

 

That’s why Jesus said, “Follow my commandments.”

 

We still need to follow the commandments

 

and repentance in the new covenant

 

to keep the sinful flesh and mind under control.

 

Too bad, Joseph Prince and his followers

 

threw all these important teachings

 

into the rubbish bin at his church.”

 

@joyceliew4352

 

“There are pastor and New Creation Church members

 

that commit adultery

 

and have extramarital affairs within his church.

 

Oh dear… we pray they will repent

 

and turn from their sins.

 

John 1:17

[17] For the law was given through Moses;

GRACE and TRUTH came through Jesus Christ.

 

Joseph Prince only gives the half-truth.

 

He gave just “grace, grace and grace”

 

but he has forgotten about the “TRUTH”

 

God’s grace comes together with the truth.

 

The grace of God saves us from eternal damnation.

 

The truth of God requires our obedience (faithfulness) unto Him

 

after we are being saved by grace through faith.

 

The consequences of disobedience unto God

 

will lead us to destruction eventually.”

 

@lindsaylim5806

 

“What is described by David Ching

 

are the bad fruits of his teaching.

 

No repentance.

 

No consequences.

 

No judgement.

 

That’s why all these happened.”

 

@user-hd7qv8dx7x

 

“Bad testimonies, members leaving New Creation Church,

 

staff leaving, etc,

 

and Joseph Prince has the audacity to say

 

his teaching is the best formula.

 

Who is really the sick one?

 

Forgiven much doesn’t mean you don’t need to confess

 

because all your future sins are forgiven.

 

The Bible never teaches that.

 

@edmundsim6251

 

“There are all kinds of temptations

 

for the followers of Christ to overcome,

 

not just adultery.

 

It also applies to liars as well.

 

And note, Rev George Ong

 

has proven that Joseph Prince is a serial liar.

 

In short, Joseph Prince should not just pick on adultery

 

to say all of you are warp and sick,

 

but all of you are so warp and sick too

 

because you sin in many ways.”

 

@jamesow5163

 

“Nick Vujicic is limbless.

 

He prayed to God to grow his limbs.

 

Prayer is not answer.

 

God does not give Nick new arms and new legs.

 

Instead, God use Nick mightily

 

in Christian and secular platforms.”

 

@WordsofGodThe

 

“Have we asked why the Pharisees and most of the Jews

 

who were under the law were under the curse (of the law)?

 

Is it because the law is a curse?

 

And therefore anyone who obeys the law

 

will be under a curse?

 

No, I don’t think so.

 

I believe that before the rise of the Pharisees,

 

those who were under the law

 

(like King David, Samuel, Elijah, and the Prophets)

 

were never under any curse.

 

In fact, the Old Testament never mentioned

 

that they were under any curse

 

because they obeyed the law.

 

So, I believe that it’s only subsequently

 

(after the Pharisees came)

 

that they were under the curse

 

when they came up with their ‘LAW’ teaching

 

which refused to accept

 

or recognize the teaching (or doctrine) of Christ.

 

Of course, when Christ came,

 

all the teaching of God’s covenants and laws

 

must come under the teaching of Christ

 

and must be in sync with the doctrine of Christ;

 

or else it would become a curse (without life).

 

However, Jesus never taught anything

 

that contradicts against the law or will of God,

 

and He knew that the spirit

 

and the principle of the Ten Commandments

 

is the will of God too:

 

John 15:10-15 KJV 

If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; EVEN AS I HAVE KEPT my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love .. (15) Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I HAVE HEARD OF MY FATHER I have made known unto you.

 

John 14:23-31 KJV 

Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  (24)  He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word WHICH YE HEAR IS NOT MINE, BUT THE FATHER’S which sent me. (25) These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. (26) But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you .. (31) But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as THE FATHER GAVE ME COMMANDMENT, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

 

Rom 8:2 

For THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

 

So, if the ‘LAW’ of the Pharisees

 

is against the ‘SPIRIT’ of the law of Christ

 

who received, kept, and taught the Ten Commandments

 

and the will of the Father.

 

The ‘LAW’ of the Pharisees would become a curse

 

without the life of Christ.

 

Now, please think, when Joseph Prince preaches a ‘GRACE’

 

that is not in sync with the doctrine of Christ,

 

isn’t it considered as a curse too?”

 

@WordsofGodThe

 

“The Bible has made it very clear

 

that, if we do not abide, follow, or teach

 

in sync with the doctrine of Jesus,

 

we could be condemned or cursed.

 

This is not an Old Covenant condemnation with a curse;

 

this is a New Covenant condemnation with a curse:

 

John 15:5-8 KJV 

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. (6) If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. (7) If ye abide in me, and MY WORDS ABIDE IN YOU, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. (8) Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye BE MY DISCIPLES.

 

Do you think that the doctrine of Jesus

 

or this type of warning from the Lord

 

has become obsolete?

 

No, if it can become obsolete,

 

Jesus would not say this in:

 

John 10:15 KJV

Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for ALL THINGS that I have heard of my Father I HAVE MADE KNOWN UNTO YOU.

 

Matt 16:24 KJV

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

 

Obviously, Jesus has made known to us all things

 

that we need to know.

 

We don’t need a heretic double talker like Joseph Prince

 

to tell us ‘new things’

 

which is not in sync with the doctrine of Christ.

 

Joseph Prince’s heretical ‘GRACE’,

 

which tries to make the doctrine of Christ obsolete,

 

will, in the end, make us more condemned

 

and put us under a stronger curse.

 

Watch out against double talkers

 

who say that you are not a disciple,

 

and therefore, you are not required

 

to keep the doctrine of Christ anymore.

Joseph Prince’s grace results are predominantly hype – By Rev George Ong

 

Announcements:

 

The issue of whether our future sins are forgiven

 

is likely to be dealt with in detail sometime next week.

 

You are likely to hear less from me

 

come end May and the whole month of June,

 

as I have my other heavy commitments to attend to.

 

See the Appendix for the Featured YouTube comments.

 

Excerpt from the Article:

 

Joseph Prince,

 

by claiming that your grace theology

 

can have much better results

 

than the Apostle Paul (‘Apostle of grace’)

 

and Apostle John (‘Apostle of love’),

 

not only shows that you are placing yourself above them,

 

but it also exposes your arrogant pride.

 

Given the fact that New Testament churches

 

didn’t experience the kind of overwhelming transformation

 

which you claimed would,

 

even though the true message of grace and love was preached

 

by Paul, John and the other apostles,

 

the claim that your grace message (false grace)

 

is now revolutionising the world

 

is clearly overly exaggerated,

 

overblown and even feigned.

 

If true grace didn’t work wonders

 

to remove sin and strongholds

 

for the grace-saved churches in Paul’s day,

 

the claim by Joseph Prince

 

that his version of grace (false grace)

 

is now working wonders

 

and making waves around the world

 

is predominantly hype.

In the sermon preached on 19 May 2024, 4 days ago,

 

Joseph Prince said;

 

Please click here

 

to view the 1-minute video:

 

“So actually, your future sins are all forgiven,

 

which a lot of people have problem.

 

You are teaching them licentiousness.

 

No, no, no.

 

Once they know they are forgiven much,

 

you love Him much.

 

When you love Him much,

 

you don’t want to sin.

 

How warped are you to think that,

 

you know, your wife tells you,

 

no matter what happen,

 

you go for a trip somewhere,

 

no matter what,

 

I will always love you.

 

Yepee, I can commit adultery.

 

You’re sick.”

 

Hey Joe, why are you so worked up by your critics?

 

By the choice of your words,

 

the tone of your delivery,

 

facial expressions on your face,

 

and your body language,

 

I can see that you are really angry and even mad at them.

 

Hey Joe, you forgot

 

you are supposed to be the super-grace teacher.

 

Not so gracious, Leh?

 

If you don’t model for us how one can still be gracious

 

even though people criticise you,

 

who would?

 

So, Joe, you need to cool down

 

and not get so uptight.

 

You must live up to your name

 

as the Super-grace preacher.

 

But, actually, by your outburst,

 

you have unwittingly exposed your real character.

 

Wow, another thing – Joseph Prince seems

 

to have discovered a fantastic formula

 

for the wives to ensure

 

that their husbands do not commit adultery

 

– just by saying to their husbands

 

‘I will always love you,’

 

before they embark on an overseas trip.

 

What a waste!

 

What a pure waste of talent!

 

Joseph Prince should have lived during King David’s time.

 

He would have prevented King David from committing adultery

 

just by asking David’s wife to say to him,

 

‘I will always love you.’

 

Come on, Joseph Prince

 

why do you have such a simplistic (rather deceptive) mind?

 

All of us are aware

 

that most wives do tell their husbands they love them.

 

But why are there still so many adultery cases.

 

Even well-known Pastors and Preachers commit adultery.

 

In ‘Destined to Reign’, Joseph Prince wrote:

 

“People are afraid…

 

… you will give people a license to sin.

 

The answer to sin is found in grace.

 

It is grace that will stop sin.

 

… My friend, knowing

 

that you are made God’s beloved by His grace

 

will give you dominion in life

 

to overcome sinful habits and temptations.

 

Temptations cannot succeed

 

when you have a revelation

 

that you are God’s beloved.

 

When you know how precious

 

and valuable you are to God,

 

and the depths of your Abba’s love for you,

 

why would you want to waste your life

 

engaging in sins that only bring destruction and death?”

 

From what Joseph Prince said in his sermon

 

on 19 May 2024, 4 days ago,

 

and what he wrote in ‘Destined To Reign’,

 

it is clear that he harboured

 

an overly romantic idea about grace and love,

 

and a dismissive idea about the strength of sin.

 

Hence, Joseph Prince

 

has deceptively oversold the power of grace and love

 

and deliberately underestimated the power of sin.

 

Let me explain…

 

There are many reasons why people fall into sin

 

and a varied number of factors

 

that give the eventual victory to believers

 

over their sinful habits and temptations.

 

There isn’t one rigid formula or one fixed cure

 

for the whole host of varied problems

 

that beset the people

 

with different personalities and backgrounds.

 

For some, it is prayer;

 

for others, it is the empowerment of the Holy Spirit;

 

and yet others, it is the sacrificial love that fellow believers

 

have extended to the brother who is in dire need of help.

 

Or, it could also be a combination of all the above factors,

 

plus, many others that are not mentioned

 

that were responsible for helping the particular brother

 

overcome his sinful habits.

 

But Joseph Prince has always been pushing the agenda

 

– that his grace teaching is the one rigid formula

 

that is solely responsible for helping people

 

overcome their sinful habits and temptations.

 

(That’s why Joseph Prince

 

will ensure that testimonies

 

are read during worship services

 

about the many who are helped by his grace teaching

 

with the proviso that his big name

 

must always appear and read

 

in almost every one of these testimonies.)

 

Such a view is not only self-aggrandising,

 

it is also simplistic and reductionistic.

 

Joseph Prince is simply saying he doesn’t care

 

– How much prayer the church has put in

 

interceding for the eventual victory of a brother

 

over his sinful habits.

 

– How much fasting his wife has devoted

 

to praying for her husband.

 

– How much effort the brother had put in,

 

with the help of the Holy Spirit,

 

to stay away from temptations.

 

– How much time the brother had spent

 

in seeking God for strength

 

to overcome his sinful indulgences.

 

– How much energy his pastor, who had counselled him

 

has helped him see the folly of his sinful actions. 

 

All Joseph Prince cares about

 

is that his Pseudo-grace doctrine

 

gets the sole recognition

 

as the one and only factor

 

that results in the brother’s deliverance

 

from his sinful habits. 

 

All Joseph Prince is fixated about

 

is that his Pseudo-grace theology

 

gets trumpeted to the whole world

 

as the one and only cure to every problem.

 

This is so that who gets glory in the end?

 

Not the Lord Jesus, but Joseph Prince!

  

Joseph Prince,

 

you are misleading believers

 

that all they need

 

is just a magical dose of God’s grace

 

and a mesmerising touch of God’s love,

 

and everything will fall into their rightful place.

 

You are no different from a quack doctor

 

who has oversold your grace medicine

 

and overpromised on its results.

 

If the grace-medicine is so powerful

 

that it can solve every problem,

 

why isn’t it working

 

for the grace-saved churches of Paul’s day?

 

If grace is truly so effective

 

in keeping people from sin,

 

why is it not working for the Corinthians,

 

a grace-saved church

 

who were committing grotesque sins

 

that were outrageous even to the ungodly?

 

If one were to believe that once grace is received,

 

everything will fall into place,

 

then why does Paul

 

have to deal with so many problems,

 

including sexual sins and doctrinal errors

 

in the Grace-saved churches of the New Testament?

 

Wasn’t Paul the best and true grace preacher

 

who brought the message of grace

 

to all the churches that he had been to?

 

Didn’t all the churches in New Testament scriptures

 

receive the grace teaching from Paul in its pure form,

 

unlike Joseph Prince’s brand of grace,

 

which is a massive corruption of it?

 

Yet, Paul had to deal with the horrible sexual sins of immorality

 

in the Corinthian Church

 

that even pagans do not tolerate.

 

He had to come down hard on the Galatian church

 

that was delving into the false doctrine

 

of adding circumcision to the pure gospel of grace.

 

Wasn’t John the apostle of love,

 

the one whom Jesus loved?

 

After having experienced the intimate love of the Father,

 

he must have exuded God’s love to the people

 

he was ministering to.

 

Yet, why does John have to deal with issues

 

such as hatred (opposite of love)

 

which is ‘equivalent’ to murder

 

which would disqualify a believer from heaven,

 

not only once but three times in the epistle of 1 John

 

in 1 John 2:9-11; 1 John 3:15 and 1 John 4:20?

 

If God’s love was so powerful

 

that it was working for everybody,

 

why does John have to warn believers

 

not to love the world

 

but to love God in 1 John 2:15-17?

 

If an experience of the revelation of God’s Abba love

 

can succeed in keeping a man from giving in to temptations

 

as postured by Joseph Prince,

 

why does John have to warn believers

 

about the reality and stronghold of sin

 

in 1 John 1:8-9; 1 John 2:1-2; 1 John 3:4-10

 

and 1 John 5:16-17.

 

No one will deny the power of God’s love and His grace

 

to deliver man from sin and bondage

 

(the first half of the truth which Joseph Prince did tell us).

 

But man is still finally responsible

 

for how he would respond to God

 

– and God will never violate his free will

 

even if it is exercised to his own detriment and damnation

 

(the second half of the truth which Joseph Prince has kept hidden from us).

 

There would be those

 

who would respond in devotion

 

to God’s wonderful grace

 

and unsurpassed love,

 

and we praise God for that.

 

But there would also be those

 

who would stubbornly choose to go their own way.

 

If what Joseph Prince said

 

that all the world and the church need

 

is an experience of God’s grace and love

 

(to be accurate,

 

his false grace theology of grace and love)

 

is true,

 

the whole world would be won twice over by now,

 

and great revivals that would transform lives

 

would be the order of the day in the church.

 

Despite the fact that God has shown His matchless grace

 

and His incomparable love through His very own Son

 

through His inhumane sufferings

 

and horrible death on the cross,

 

for the last 2,000 years,

 

much of the world is still hardening their hearts

 

by rejecting His love and grace.

 

Joseph Prince,

 

by claiming that your grace theology

 

can have much better results

 

than the Apostle Paul (‘Apostle of grace’)

 

and Apostle John (‘Apostle of love’),

 

not only shows that you are placing yourself above them,

 

but it also exposes your arrogant pride.

 

Given the fact that New Testament churches

 

didn’t experience the kind of overwhelming transformation

 

which you claimed would,

 

even though the true message of grace and love was preached

 

by Paul, John and the other apostles,

 

the claim that your grace message (false grace)

 

is now revolutionising the world

 

is clearly overly exaggerated,

 

overblown and even feigned.

 

If true grace didn’t work wonders

 

to remove sin and strongholds

 

for the grace-saved churches in Paul’s day,

 

the claim by Joseph Prince

 

that his version of grace (false grace)

 

is now working wonders

 

and making waves around the world

 

is predominantly hype.

 

“Grace is not an all-cure pill for every sickness of every man but just one in a compendium of medicines to deal with the range of illnesses of all mankind.” (George Ong)

 

“While all of us should be Pro-grace and none of us Anti-grace, Joseph Prince is Super-grace – over-selling a grace-pill that can remove all sicknesses and over-promoting a grace-formula which can solve all problems.” (George Ong)
