Joseph Prince’s flipflop on fasting is to cover up – no integrity & too proud to admit mistakes – By Rev George Ong (Dated 19 May 2024)

 

Announcement No 1:

 

Come end May and the whole month of June,

 

I will have my other heavy commitments to attend to.

 

So, you are likely to hear less from me

 

during this period. 

 

Announcement No 2:

 

Just imagine, I am still clearing the rubbish

 

of Joseph Prince’s sermon 7 days ago on 12 May 2024,

 

and there are still more to come

 

just from this sermon alone!

 

Announcement No 3:

 

This is probably my shortest Article

 

for a long time.

 

(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.)

“Just like sometimes,

 

you want to fast certain things

 

and all that and even food

 

to draw closer to God.”

 

In a weekly Sunday sermon aired on 13 August 2023,

 

Joseph Prince said;

“But I’m telling you God’s way;

 

I always like to follow the word of God.

 

The word of God is safe.

 

Alright, it doesn’t tell me, New Testament,

 

it doesn’t say spend days and days in fasting

 

in the New Testament,

 

written directly to you, to the church.”

 

One moment,

 

Joseph Prince said that fasting draws you closer to God.

 

The next moment,

 

he said the New Testament

 

has nothing written to the church

 

about days and days of fasting.

 

Do you believe what’s happening?

 

That’s not all.

 

In ‘Destined To Reign,’ Joseph Prince wrote:

 

“The question we should be asking is,

 

‘Did Jesus tell us to fast?’

 

“But do you know that in the original Greek text,

 

the word ‘fasting’ does not appear in that verse (Mk 9:29)

 

It was added by the translators!”

 

Joseph Prince also wrote in ‘Destined To Reign’:

 

“Paul hardly spoke about fasting.

 

Yet, the body of Christ has somehow managed

 

to make man’s own works (like fasting)

 

the main emphasis.

 

Paul’s emphasis was the new covenant of grace,

 

but instead of focusing on understanding the new covenant,

 

people are obsessed with doing!”

 

Do you sense the incoherence and self-contradiction

 

in what Joseph Prince wrote and said?

 

If you put the pieces together,

 

what’s happening is that Joseph Prince

 

began by teaching against fasting.

 

Then recently,

 

he realised that what he taught was erroneous

 

because fasting indeed has a place in the New Testament.

 

Instead of being honest about his mistake

 

and publicly apologise for his previous stand on fasting

 

and state his current position,

 

he dishonestly tries to cover up

 

by merely stating his present stand on fasting,

 

thinking that no one will find out

 

about his previous stand.

 

Joseph Prince thought by quietly covering up,

 

no one would know.

 

But Joseph Prince has forgotten

 

who he is up against – George Ong

 

Joseph Prince may fool others

 

but he cannot fool me.

 

Joseph Prince is too proud to admit his mistakes.

 

He is too proud to admit

 

that much of what he taught, not just fasting,

 

are erroneous.

 

He is too proud to repent from his heretical teachings

 

and turn from his wicked ways.

 

And pride would be his downfall.

 

Rev George Ong
