Billy Graham said:


“Faith that saves has one distinguishing quality:


saving faith is a faith that produces obedience…”


In a weekly Sunday sermon aired on YouTube


on 16 July 2023 (while on sabbatical), Joseph Prince said;


Please click here to view the 1-minute video:


“Joshua 1:8 again, just like Solomon,


Joshua is about to fill up a big pair of shoes.


Moses has died and gone on to be with the Lord.


And he’s gonna fill up Moses’ shoes.


Anyone will be intimidated by that.


But the very first instruction God gave him was this,


“This Book of the Law will not


depart from his mouth.” (Jos 1:8)


God said,


“Don’t let this Book of the Law


depart from your mouth.”


What does that mean?


Mutter on it. Memorise it and mutter on it.


You shall meditate in it day and night.


Meditation is filling your mind with God’s word.


You meditate on it day and night.


And God says the result will be;


“For then you will make your way prosperous,


and then you will have good success.”


“So, in other words,


when you meditate on God’s word day and night,


you’ll make your way prosperous


and you will have good success.


Another way of meditating, of course,


is also to hear sermons, day and night.


If the devil is bombarding you 24 hours a day, 24/7,


let me tell you this,


it’s time for you to meditate on God’s word,


listen to God’s word day and night.”


Can you spot anything that is wrong


with what you Joseph Prince has said?


Probably, many or even most of you may say,


“George, what’s wrong with that?


Isn’t Joseph Prince preaching rather biblically


about the need to meditate on God’s word;


and that’s how we can obtain prosperity and success?


Isn’t that what the text in Joshua 1:8 say?”


Well, what you see is more than meets the eye.


That is how deceptive Joseph Prince is.


That is why so many people


are being taken in by his deceptive style of teaching.


Joseph Prince’s half-truth deception in action again.


Let’s take a look at Joshua 1:8


Joshua 1:8 NKJV


8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth,


but you shall meditate in it day and night,


that you may observe to do


according to all that is written in it.


For then you will make your way prosperous,


and then you will have good success.


Joshua 1:8 NLT


8 Study this Book of Instruction continually.


Meditate on it day and night


so you will be sure to obey everything written in it.


Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.


As you would have realised by now,


Joseph Prince is teaching the half-truth


about the importance of meditation.


But he is also ‘hiding’ from you the other half-truth


about the greater importance of obeying God


at the same time: 


“Meditate on it day and night


so you will be sure to obey everything written in it.”


Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. (Jos 1:8)


This is not the first time


Joseph Prince has done this to Joshua 1:8


– blowing up the half-truth that he likes,


while suppressing the other half-truth


that goes against his Grace and Feel-Good Theology.


I have caught him doing the same thing to Joshua 1:8


several times in his other sermons,


skipping on obedience (or only mentioning it in passing)


and only focussing on meditation.


This is not the case of Joseph Prince


wanting to focus on just one aspect of the verse,


in order to draw out the maximum lessons


one could learn from meditation


because of the practicality of time,


and as for the issue of obedience,


he has stressed on that


at the other times in his other sermons.


The answer is a flat no.


Joseph Prince hardly teaches obedience at all.


I have heard plenty of his sermons,


but I have not heard a single sermon


from Joseph Prince on obedience.


The worse is Joseph Prince even preaches against it.




Because it goes his Antinomian gospel.


It goes against his only-believe


and a no-repentance and also a no-obedience gospel,


which is a false gospel


– a gospel that cannot save.


This would be developed fuller


when I bring in the valued teachings


of DA Carson and Arthur Pink,


both of whom are renowned Bible commentators


and teachers of God’s word.


The second reason


why he leaves out obedience in his teachings


is that it would reinforce his Feel-Good Theology.


Which carnal-minded person


wouldn’t want a feel-good religion


that tells them they can enter heaven


without the issue of obedience


hanging over their heads?


Which fleshly-minded person


wouldn’t want a feel-good faith


that can take them to heaven


and yet, they don’t have to be bothered


about whether they are obeying God or not.


That’s why Joseph Prince


can muster such a large following.


But what’s the use.


Most of his followers have the carnality


that is no different from the world


as they are not even true believers to begin with.


What’s misleading is that Joseph Prince


emphasises the issue of meditation


which is a secondary cause of prosperity and success,


but entirely leaves out the primary cause


– that of obedience:


Joshua 1:8 NLT


8 Study this Book of Instruction continually.


Meditate on it day and night


so you will be sure to obey everything written in it.


Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.


Just from a cursory look at the text,


Joseph Prince has indeed preached Joshua 1:8


out of context.


The context or cause of prosperity and success


in Joshua 1:8


is not merely to meditate,


but, more importantly, to obey the law of God.


Doing one part of meditation


will not bring about prosperity and success.


It is a necessary but not a sufficient cause.


But, according to the context of Joshua 1:8,


it is when you both meditate and obey,


will prosperity and success come your way.


So, Joseph Prince is not only misleading us


but he is also deliberately deceiving us


that meditation alone without obedience


can bring one prosperity and success. 


This proves that Joseph Prince


has no integrity at all in his preaching. 


What is sinful about Joseph Prince


is that he has refused to teach on obedience


which is a very important issue


both in the Old Covenant and the New.


If we know the history of the Israelites,


what fouls them up


is their disobedience to the law of God.


Episode after episode in their history


proves that obedience or disobedience to God


was the crux of the issue. 


Because of their disobedience to the law of God,


God had to invoke natural disasters


such as pestilences and diseases to punish them,


God had to resort to using a pagan nation to conquer them


and even exiled them for 70 years in a foreign nation.


What about the issue of obedience


under the New Covenant?


It is even more important.


Let me now unveil the insightful teachings


of 2 Bible scholars:


DA Carson and Arthur Pink


regarding the crucial issue of obedience


in relation to our salvation.


In ‘Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount And His Confrontation with the World,’


DA Carson wrote:


“Another form of self-delusion, however,


is evident in Matthew 7:21-23.


21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’


will enter the kingdom of heaven,


but the one who does the will of My Father


who is in heaven will enter. 


22 Many will say to Me on that day,


‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name,


and in Your name cast out demons,


and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 


23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you;


leave Me, you who practice lawlessness.’


It is not so much that the false claimant


lulls himself into spiritual apathy,


as that he mistakes loud profession and supernatural,


almost magical formulations and experiences,


for true spirituality and genuine godliness.


Obedience is neglected.


The pressure of the spectacular


has excluded the stability of growing conformity


to the Father’s will.


Because he seems to be getting results,


immediate results, spectacular results,


he feels he is close to the center of true religion.


His success indices are soaring:


God must be blessing him.


(George Ong’s interjection:


Joseph Prince is deceived


that his big attendance at worship services


and his so-called many healing miracles


must be proof that God is blessing him


and that he is preaching the true gospel.)


“It is true, of course,


that no man enters the kingdom


because of his obedience;


but it is equally true


that no man enters the kingdom


who is not obedient.


It is true that men


are saved by God’s grace through faith in Christ;


but it is equally true


that God’s grace in a man’s life


inevitably results in obedience.


(George Ong’s interjection:


Never miss this crucial point


about the importance of obedience


for our salvation


that DA Carson is making.)


Any other view of grace


cheapens grace,


and turns it into something unrecognizable.


Cheap grace preaches


forgiveness without repentance,


church membership without rigorous church discipline,


discipleship without obedience,


blessing without persecution,


joy without righteousness,


results without obedience.


(George Ong’s interjection:


DA Carson states that any other view of grace


that takes obedience out of the salvation equation


is cheap grace as it cheapens grace.


That’s exactly what Joseph Prince does.


DA Carson said cheap grace preaches


forgiveness without repentance,


discipleship without obedience,


blessing without persecution,


results without obedience.


This is exactly what Joseph Prince preaches.


He is preaching cheap grace


which is another term for Pseudo-grace.)


In the entire history of the church,


has there ever been another generation


with so many nominal Christians


and so few real (i.e., obedient) ones?


And where nominal Christianity is compounded


by spectacular profession,


it is especially likely to manufacture


its own false assurance.”


(George Ong’s interjection:


Be warned that most of Joseph Prince’s converts


are nominal Christians, false converts.


No true converts


can come from the preaching of cheap grace


that Joseph Prince is famous for and guilty of.)


“Two Houses (Matt 7:24-27)


24 “So then, anyone who hears these words of mine


and obeys them


is like a wise man who built his house on rock.


25 The rain poured down, the rivers flooded over,


and the wind blew hard against that house.


But it did not fall, because it was built on rock.


26 “But anyone who hears these words of mine


and does not obey them


is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.


27 The rain poured down, the rivers flooded over,


the wind blew hard against that house, and it fell.


And what a terrible fall that was!”


Entrance into the kingdom, then,


does turn on obedience after all


– not the obedience which earns merit points,


but which bows to Jesus’s lordship


in everything and without reservation.


Such obedience necessarily


blends with genuine repentance,


making the two almost one.


Within this framework,


the issue of obedience is everything.”


“The man who builds his house upon a rock


is likened to the person who not only hears Jesus’s words


but also puts them into practice.


The difference between the two houses


is therefore to be likened to the difference


between obedience and disobedience.”


In ‘Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount And His Confrontation with the World,’


DA Carson wrote:


“In the Sermon on the Mount,


not everyone enters the kingdom of heaven,


but only those who are poor in spirit (5:3),


obedient (7:21),


and surpassingly righteous (5:20).


Similarly, in John’s Gospel,


only he who is born from above


can see or enter the kingdom of God (John 3:3, 5).”


“… we see that the kingdom in these passages


cannot be universal.


There are conditions to be met


before entrance is possible.”


In ‘Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount And His Confrontation with the World,’


DA Carson wrote:


“What is required is a “righteousness


[which] surpasses that of the Pharisees


and teachers of the law” (Matt 5:20),


for otherwise there is no entrance


into the kingdom of heaven.


Indeed, even ranking within the kingdom


is dependent on obedience to Jesus’s commands (Matt 5:19);


but that is not surprising


when we remember the tremendous emphasis


which the Sermon on the Mount


places on obedience to Jesus (cf. Matt. 7:21–23),


or Jesus’s repeated refrain, “But I tell you”


(see Matt. 5:20, 22, 26, 28, 32, 34, 39, 44).


The Old Testament pointed to the Messiah


and the kingdom he would introduce;


Jesus, claiming to fulfill that Old Testament anticipation,


introduces the kingdom to his followers.


In doing so, he stresses obedience


and surpassing righteousness,


without which there is no admittance.


It is worth noting that Jesus’s closing words


in Matthew’s Gospel (Matt 28:18-20)


again emphasize obedience:


the believers are to make disciples of all nations,


baptizing them


and teaching them to obey everything


Jesus has commanded (Matt 28:18–20).


Jesus’s commands are highlighted, much as in Matt 5:19.”


(George Ong’s interjection:


Matthew 28:19-20 NIV


19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations… 


20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…


As you can see, the Great Commission


involves both costly discipleship and radical obedience.


This is why Joseph Prince refuses to preach


on the Great Commission of Jesus


because both costly discipleship and radical obedience


are diametrically opposed


to his cheap grace and feel-good gospel.


Matthew 28:20 NIV

20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…


Ask yourself where are the commands


we are asked to obey in Matthew 28:19 found?


In the gospels!


Yet, Joseph Prince said that


since everything before the cross


is under the Old Covenant,


all the gospels and the Great Commission,


which are before the cross


are not relevant to New Covenant believers


as they are under the Old Covenant.


That’s why Joseph Prince


refuses to preach on Matthew 28:18-20


the Great Commission of Jesus.


Anyone who blatantly dares to disobey


the Great Commission, the heartbeat of Jesus


is undoubtedly a false prophet.


What is more outrageous


is that Joseph Prince


has replaced the Great Commission of Jesus


with his Grace Revolution Gospel


which is a false gospel.


For anyone who dares to do this


is 100 percent a heretic.)


In ‘Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount And His Confrontation with the World,’


DA Carson wrote:


“What, then, is the essential characteristic


of the true believer,


the genuine disciple of Jesus Christ?


It is not loud profession,


nor spectacular spiritual triumphs,


nor protestations of great spiritual experience.


Rather, his chief characteristic is obedience.


True believers perform the will of their Father, (Matt 7:21)


consistent with their prayer,


“Your will be done on earth as in heaven.”


They cannot forget that


at the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount,


Jesus said,


“Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments


and teaches others to do the same


will be called least in the kingdom of heaven,


but whoever practices and teaches these commands


will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.


For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses


that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law,


you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matt 5:19f.).


And so, they practice obedience.


The Father’s will is not simply admired,


discussed, praised, debated;


it is done.


It is not theologically analyzed,


nor congratulated for its high ethical tones;


it is done.


The test is rephrased


by a famous second-century document,


the Didache, which says,


“But not everyone who speaks in the Spirit is a prophet,


except he have the behavior of the Lord.”


In ‘Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount And His Confrontation with the World,’


DA Carson wrote:


“Faith must be founded on fact:


the truthfulness of the revelation of Jesus Christ


is everywhere presupposed.


Elsewhere, when the Corinthians


seem to be calling in question


the resurrection of Jesus Christ,


Paul goes so far as to say that


if they are right


then our Christian faith is futile (1 Cor. 15:17).


He will not acknowledge as valid


that faith whose object is not real, true,


and in conformity with the revelation


that Jesus Christ is and brings.


On the other hand, as James 2:19 points out,


if faith has a proper object but is merely credal,


then the devils themselves can be said to believe


– but with no benefit to them.


Faith not only must have a proper object,


but also must issue from need


and be characterized by genuine trust


and obedience.”


In ‘Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount And His Confrontation with the World,’


DA Carson wrote:


“Jesus’s expenditure of compassion, of grace,


issues in transformed people


who will increasingly meet his demands


and follow in steps of obedient discipleship.


And if so-called disciples fail to change


at least the direction of their lives,


they are no disciples at all.


In ‘Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount And His Confrontation with the World,’


DA Carson wrote:


“False conclusion


The Sermon on the Mount


contains a great deal of ethical instruction


– so much so that some people have concluded


that it lays out a series of conditions


which must be met


if a person is to enter the kingdom of God.


In this view, an individual enters the kingdom


because his obedience merits entrance.


Such a deduction is, of course, false;


we observed in the last chapter


how Jesus’s insistence on poverty of spirit (in Matt 5:3),


coupled with the accent on humbly petitioning God (in Matt 7:7–11),


combine to vitiate such a conclusion.


However, it is understandable, to say the least,


how a superficial reading of the Sermon on the Mount


might lead the inattentive reader


to this false conclusion.


In ‘Sermon on the Mount by Arthur W. Pink,’


Arthur Pink wrote:


(Matt 7:24-27)


“Let us duly note what Christ


does not here say of the one He terms wise,


“he that heareth these sayings of Mine


and understandeth them,”


nor even


“he that heareth these sayings of Mine


and believeth in Ale”:


what He did say goes much farther than that.


There are multitudes who believe in Christ


who do not put His precepts into practice.


In the same way that


there are millions in India who believe in Buddha,


millions in China who believe in Confucius,


millions in Africa who believe in Mohammed,


so vast numbers in Christendom believe in Christ.


And because “they believe in Christ”


they suppose that all is well with them


and that when they die


they will go to heaven.”


“The great majority of the preachers in this apostate age


are only adding to the number of the deceived,


by telling them that all God requires of them


is to believe in the Gospel


and receive Christ as their personal Saviour.


They quote such passages as John 3:16, and Acts 16:31,


which contain the word “believe,”


but are guiltily silent on the many verses


which insist on repentance,


forsaking of sins, denying of self,


and which call to obedience.


(George Ong’s interjection:


This is exactly what Joseph Prince teaches.


His only-believe gospel and a no-repentance


and a no-obedience gospel is a false gospel


that does not lead people to heaven but hell.)


How often, for example, we hear quoted,


“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing,


nor uncircumcision, but a new creature [or creation]” (Gal. 6:15),


especially by those who (rightly) wish to show


that neither the ceremonial ordinances of Judaism


nor baptism and the Lord’s supper of Christianity


are of any worth


in the justifying of sinners before God.


So, too, though not quite so frequently,


we are reminded that


“For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision;


but faith which worketh by love” (Gal. 5:6),


that is out of gratitude to God for His unspeakable Gift


and not from a legal motive


which works only for what it may obtain.


But how very rarely is this one ever mentioned:


“Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing,


but the keeping of the commandments of God” (1 Cor. 7:19).


That which concerns our submission to the Divine authority,


our walking in subjection to His will,


is studiously kept in the background:


such partiality is most reprehensible.


It is only by placing these three verses side by side


that we obtain a complete and balanced view.


We are not vitally united to Christ


unless we have been born again;


we are not born again


unless we possess a faith which “worketh by love”;


and we have not this saving faith


unless it is evidenced


by a “keeping of God’s commandments.”


No wonder there is now so much dishonesty


among those in the pew


when there has been such dishonesty in the pulpit.


The unsaved are frequently told,


“Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord


shall be saved” (Rom. 10:13),


but who is faithful enough to tell them


that none ever did


or could savingly “call upon” Him


out of an impenitent heart?


Fewer still will remind them


that Christ is


“the Author of eternal salvation


unto all them that obey Him” (Heb. 5:9).


In like manner,


when addressing those who profess to be Christians,


how many preachers give great prominence


to the comforting promises of God,


but say little about His holy requirements.


There is also a certain class of Calvinists


who are fond of citing


“Greater love hath no man than this,


that a man lay down his life for his friends,”


but they fail to add


“ye are My friends,


if ye do whatsoever I command you” (John 15:13, 14),


which is the surest identifying mark


of those for whom Christ died.


There are thousands


who glibly talk of their love for Christ,


but how rarely are they reminded.


“And hereby we do know that we know Him,


if we keep His commandments.


He that saith, I know Him,


and keepeth not His commandments,


is a liar, and the truth is not in him” (1 John 2:3, 4).”


“Saving faith


is a practical persuasion


of the truth of Christ’s teaching


which is followed


by a wholehearted obedience to His authority.”


In ‘Sermon on the Mount by Arthur W. Pink,’


Arthur Pink wrote:


“In the preceding chapter


we sought to define and explain


the relation of good works to salvation.


First, we pointed out that they possess no meritorious value:


by which we mean,


they deserve nothing at the hands of God,


that in no sense do they earn aught


or contribute one mite to our redemption.


Second, we insisted that they are necessary,


yea, that without them


salvation cannot be obtained.


Not that any well-doing on our part


is required in order to obtain acceptance with God,


nor that they can atone for the failures and sins of the past.


But rather that the path of obedience must be trod


if the realm of unclouded bliss is to be reached.


The doing of good works


is indispensable in order


to the securing of full and final salvation,


that is in order to an actual entrance


into heaven itself.


We are well aware that such language


will have a strange sound to some of our friends,


that it will savor of “legality,”


yet if Scripture itself expressly declares


that Christ is


“the Author of eternal salvation


unto all them that obey Him” (Heb. 5:9),


need we hesitate to employ the same plain language


and press the force thereof?


That which we are here advancing


is no departure from genuine orthodoxy,


but the doctrine propounded


by the soundest of God’s servants in days gone by.”


In ‘Sermon on the Mount by Arthur W. Pink,’


Arthur Pink wrote:


“First, the force of the opening “Therefore.”


In addition to the more general remarks made thereon


in the previous article let us now point out


that Christ was here drawing a plain


but searching conclusion


from His solemn statement in verses 21-23 (Matt 7).


There He (Jesus) had declared that not everyone


who renders lip-service to His Lordship


shall enter into the kingdom of heaven,


but only he who does the will of the Father


as made known by the Son;


yea, that the many


who substitute preaching and performing wonderful works


for actual obedience to His commands,


He will yet say unto such,


“Depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.”


Then He at once added,


“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine


and doeth them,


I will liken him unto a wise man,


which built his house upon a rock.”


Is not the connection, then,


between the two passages (Matt 7:21-23 & Matt 7:24-27)


unmistakably indicated?


Is not our Lord’s design and meaning in the verses


now before us crystal clear?


In verses 21-23 (Matt 7) Christ is viewed in His office of Judge,


testing professors, making known unto us


who it is that will survive the fiery trial of that dread Day;


and in verses 24-27 (Matt 7)


He reveals the path which must be trod


if that Day is to be wisely and successfully anticipated.


In the Day of testing,


not what we have said


but what we have done


in obedience to the Divine will


shall alone be accepted as evidence:


not the profession we have made,


but the verification we have given of it in our Christian walk;


not the doctrines we believed,


but the fruits they bore in our daily lives.


DA Carson and Arthur Pink


are no ‘ordinary’ Bible scholars and commentators.


They are world-renowned and proven


for their biblical scholarship and scriptural insights.


The teachings of these two men


have indeed demolished


the no-obedience gospel of Joseph Prince.


Though obedience does not and cannot contribute to our salvation,


it is a non-negotiable evidence and fruit of saving faith,


for without the presence of it,


no one can claim that he is saved.


Both DA Carson and Arthur Pink and Joseph Prince


cannot be right at the same time,


as their teachings on obedience concerning salvation


are diametrically opposed.


Who do you trust?


DA Carson and Arthur Pink,


who are both credible Bible scholars


or Joseph Prince, the unrepentant deceiver?


Finally, Joseph Prince said in his sermon;


Please click here to view to the 20-second video:


“Another way of meditating, of course,


is also to hear sermons, day and night.


If the devil is bombarding you 24 hours a day, 24/7,


let me tell you this,


it’s time for you to meditate on God’s word,


listen to God’s word day and night.”


Joseph Prince said:


“Another way of meditating, of course,


is also to hear sermons, day and night.


Have you figured out by now


why Joseph Prince is so rich today?


The reason is that he has been promoting


the sales of his sermon videos indirectly,


through his ‘listen, listen, listen’ marketing strategy,


and the world is his market.


In a previous article, I highlighted what Paul Washer said in a video.


Paul Washer said;


“You notice this, some of you need to hear this.


because sooner or later,


they find out the only one getting rich 


is the preacher.”


Though Joseph Prince, the preacher, is a very wealthy guy,


the same cannot be said for most of his fans.


Kristen Jane Lin, an Ex New Creation Church member for 6 years, wrote:


“I see in this passage many things, first, strive and practice,


instead of just listen and listen and listen


like Joseph Prince always says


(and for most of the time,


he is asking us to listen to his sermons


instead of other pastors/other churches sermons,

but do you know that you have to purchase them?


Recently, there are many of his newest full sermons


available on YouTube


because of his program called the Gospel Partner,


but in order for that to happen,


the “Gospel Partners” need to pay.)”


Yvonne Tan, an Ex New Creation Church member for 20 years wrote:


“I would also buy his CDs


and would listen to them…


Joseph Prince often emphasizes


that Faith comes by hearing


and hearing of the Word.


He would advise us not to listen to preachers


who do not preach ‘true grace’


because we would easily go back


to justify our salvation by our works,


but we are to listen to his sermons.


On hindsight, it was probably


to boost the sales for his books and CDs.


Therefore, many of the NCC members that I know


usually owns many of his CDs and DVDs


because we were often reminded


to always listen to ‘sound doctrines’


which refer to his messages


and we should constantly be hearing them


in order to grow our faith…


and I think I had spent thousands of dollars


just buying many of his resources which were available.


Just think, if I, as one person,


had spent that much money,


how much would a few thousand,


out of the 34,000 people,


who attend NCC spend,


just to buy the same resources.


This is just counting one church in NCC in Singapore.


But if we were to include


other churches in Singapore


and the churches


in the many other nations of the world,


the sales of Joseph Prince’s resources are humongous!


For Joseph Prince to tell the world


that he is not paid by the church


becomes an irrelevant point


as compared to the fat and juicy income


that he reaps from such sales.”


(George Ong’s interjection:


Recently, I heard Joseph Prince


say at least three times


that he decided to go without income from the church


some time ago.


And the way he said it, it is as if it is a big sacrifice.


When I heard that,


I say to myself what kind of sacrifice is that?


You still have your millions


that you have earned


from the sales of the CDs and the books


for all these years


which can last you many times your lifetime.


Why is there the need for him


to make such a big thing about it?


From the supposedly sacrificial way he has shared it,


I really feel embarrassed for him.)


Lindsay Lim, an Ex New Creation Church member for 18 years, wrote:


“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.”


“It was during this period of time


of intensely seeking God for answers


that God showed me how dangerous


Joseph Prince’s teachings are. 


I immediately obeyed Him


and threw out all the materials, and CDs and DVDs


of Joseph Prince’s messages


that I had purchased over the years in NCC


even though they cost me thousands of dollars.”


“A related point is that it was very common


to hear those who went for counselling in NCC


to receive advice that they should just keep listening


to Joseph Prince’s teaching on videos or audios


until they receive their breakthrough from God.


They were not encouraged


to seek God in His Word or prayer at all.


They just need to listen


to Joseph Prince’s teaching long enough


and God will do a miracle for them.


Can you now see why Joseph Prince’s CDs and DVDs


are selling so well?”


What 3 of these Ex New Creation Church members


shared about the tons of CDS and DVDs


of Joseph Prince sermons that they bought


is representative of the multitudes


who are attending New Creation Church


and those from other churches


who are influenced by his teachings.


Here we are just talking about one nation, Singapore alone.


But if you add up the numbers in all the countries


that Joseph Prince has a hold on,


just imagine the amounts of profits that he has earned


over the many years of his ministry.


Do I sound like sour grapes, envious of his riches?


Why should I?


What are we talking about?


Here we are talking about Joseph Prince,


who is profiting millions of dollars from people


for preaching what?


For preaching heresies


that can damn the same people to hell.


That’s what is revolting and nauseating!
