The Consequence of Joseph Prince’s Teachings is Literally between Heaven and Hell (Dated 13 July 2020)
“After I had read a substantial portion of George’s refute on what Joseph Prince said and taught in the 4,800 of notes on the website, I must say that I agree with George. Let me quote just one example. Joseph Prince teaches that since our sins, past, including our present and future sins have all been cleansed and forgiven, there is no longer a need to confess our sins after conversion. However, James 5:16 says, “Therefore, confess your sins to each other…” The question to ask is, why do we need to confess our sins to each other if all our past, present and future sins have been forgiven? This is just one example. There are plenty of other examples in George’s website that show the falsity of Joseph Prince’s teachings.
I am really wondering why Joseph Prince did what he did. I can only think of two possibilities. One, perhaps, he is genuinely mistaken. If this is the case, in the face of so many evidences showing that what he said is truly wrong, he should be humble enough to seriously examine all these evidences, come to realise his error, repent and stop what he is doing. The second possibility is, he knows what he is saying is not of the Bible, but for reasons only he knows, he persists in what he is doing. If this is the case, it is very serious because this is tantamount to willfully misrepresenting God. And I don’t need to state the consequences. People may be wondering, why do I want to speak up like this? Why not live and let live? Yes, most of the time, it would be better to just live and let live. However, for some matters, we just cannot do that. Because the consequence is just too great to live and let live. The consequence of Joseph Prince’s teachings is literally between heaven and hell.
I have known George for many years now. Besides his rebuttal against Joseph Prince’s teachings, I had followed his refute of popular teachings like “Once saved, always saved” and the Pre-tribulation Rapture doctrine. These are popular topics appealing to many that no one wants to dispute. Yet George tackled these three topics head-on, coming up with tons of Biblical references to refute them. And I must say, they are really solid research work. Very frankly, there is no money to be made for doing this. You only alienate yourself from others, even friends, when you do this kind of work. To me, either George is mad or he is really answering a calling from God. And I don’t think he is mad. I have full admiration for him. I have always admired George’s courage to follow his God-given convictions even though he has to pay a high price for it, and no matter how daunting and intimidating the task may be. May God continue to use him fearlessly and mightily to speak up for Him.”
