Has Joseph Prince lost much of his Popularity? – By Rev George Ong (Dated 18 May 2022)
(This article was 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.)
The answer to the above question is in the affirmative. Reason – the 4 worship services prior to Covid-19 are now cut down to just 2 in the Star Vista – the locality where New Creation Church meets. Imagine, losing 50% of his congregation.
Also, the latest is that people no longer have to book or reserve seats in the worship services of New Creation Church as previously practised. This is a clear sign that the attendance has dropped drastically.
This is bad news for Joseph Prince and New Creation Church but good news for those who are convinced that Joseph Prince is a heretic and that more and more people have seen the light and come out of his heretical teachings.
This is also confirmed by my own sources. Over the last 2 years, many (and I meant it, not exaggerating) have written to me that they have ‘bumped’ into my website. With what they have read on my website, they have been convinced that Joseph Prince is indeed a wolf in sheepskin, and many have left New Creation Church as a result of that.
Another probable reason for the steeped drop in attendance is that many in New Creation Church have indeed lost faith in Joseph Prince’s “No virus can come near you” teaching. They are, perhaps, afraid to attend the services for fear that they may contract COVID-19 from their fellow worshippers.
Perhaps, to discredit the credibility of this short article, Joseph Prince ought to make known the current weekly attendance of his church publicly and accurately?
But is he prepared to do it? I really doubt so. As I have always said, Prince is such a proud man, and his pride won’t allow him to ‘lose face’ over the drastic drop in his church attendance and much of his popularity.
