Main Title: Joseph Prince’s prophecy about hair growth is false – that makes him a false prophet

Announcements:

 

There is 1 video by Mike Winger

 

& 2 videos on Joseph Prince.

 

This is the last Article for this week.

 

Just imagine, from just 2 sermons on 7 and 14 Apr 2024,

 

there are so much rubbish of Joseph Prince’s teachings

 

that I have to clear and contend with.

 

See Appendix 1 for Featured YouTube comments.

 

See Appendix 2 for verbatim notes of Mike Winger’s 3-minute video.

 

In a previous article I wrote:

 

“There was more than once I heard him (Joseph Prince) say

 

that ominous things have happened to those

 

who criticised those (himself too) who are anointed.

 

Though names were not mentioned,

 

I am quite sure Joseph Prince was referring to Kong Hee,

 

who was jailed not too long ago.

 

You can call it discernment or knowledge

 

– this is the conclusion I came to.

 

If Joseph Prince would dare to state publicly

 

that he has never mentioned

 

what I had said in those terms about Kong Hee

 

to his family, or his Pastors, or his close associates,

 

and that Kong Hee was never in his mind even once

 

when he said that publicly,

 

I will and I must apologise to Joseph Prince publicly.

 

To all beloved critics of Joseph Prince,

 

never let such empty and baseless threats of Joseph Prince

 

scare you.

 

If Joseph Prince thinks he can scare a person

 

like his chief critic, George Ong,

 

he’s picking on the wrong guy.

 

Kong Hee’s imprisonment has nothing to do with Joseph Prince.

 

It is Kong Hee’s own mistakes that he has owned up.

 

I was overjoyed that Kong Hee who had been jailed,

 

had repented,

 

while Joseph Prince who preaches heresies

 

is still recalcitrantly unrepentant.

 

I thank God for using Kong Hee

 

to preach the true grace of God

 

bringing in souls into God’s kingdom

 

as opposed to the false grace and gospel

 

that Joseph Prince preaches

 

that not only has no saving faith,

 

but it would also bring people to their destruction.”

 

With regards to what I had written in the above,

 

Glenn Fong, an Ex New Creation Church member for 15 years

 

wrote to me,

 

“Yes, Rev George Ong,

 

what you said about what Joseph Prince said

 

that those who preach or go against him

 

would be cursed

 

is correct.

 

Since I left New Creation Church,

 

I had written and spoken against Joseph Prince’s heresies.

 

Because of that,

 

my New Creation Church friends would warn me,

 

‘Glenn, are you not afraid you would be cursed

 

for going against Pastor Prince?’

 

This is because New Creation Church has been taught

 

that if one goes against Joseph Prince’s teachings,

 

the anointed one,

 

he or she would be cursed.

 

I thought that was pure nonsense.

 

All of us know Joseph Prince

 

preaches against repentance and obedience. 

 

And repentance and obedience were preached

 

by the Reformation Fathers

 

and every preacher of the True Church.

 

Going by what my Ex New Creation Church friends are saying,

 

this means the Reformation Fathers

 

and all those preachers who preached against Joseph Prince

 

because they preached on repentance and obedience

 

are under a curse?

 

This is ridiculous!” 

 

George Ong’s comments:

 

Joseph Prince’s teaching

 

that anyone who dares to go against him and his teachings

 

because he is the anointed one,

 

would come under a curse,

 

has put fear into many New Creation Church members.

 

That is why many in the church

 

dare not speak against him and his teachings

 

even though they don’t agree with him.

 

And also, many are afraid to leave the church

 

because Joseph Prince has threatened them

 

that if they leave his church for the ‘law churches’,

 

(which, practically refer to all Singapore churches

 

as no Singapore church teaches the way he teaches grace)

 

– they would come under a double curse (Gal 1:8-9). 

 

(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 a sermon on 7 Apr 2024, Joseph Prince said;

 

Please click here

 

to view the 25-second video:

 

“Hey listen, don’t laugh.

 

Someone’s hair is restored.

 

Praise God.

 

There are bald patches.

 

You just realised that.

 

Now, you can’t look into a mirror right now.

 

Maybe, you can feel it.

 

But God has restored hair.

 

And it’s black, alright.

 

It’s not white hair.

 

Praise the Lord.

 

Thank You, Jesus.

 

So, with renewal of youth.”

 

This prophecy about hair growth

 

was given by Joseph Prince in his 7 Apr 2024 sermon.

 

First, this prophecy refers to a person

 

who attended the worship service on 7 Apr 2024

 

when Joseph Prince said:

 

“There are bald patches.

 

You just realised that.

 

Now, you can’t look into a mirror right now.

 

Maybe, you can feel it.

 

But God has restored hair.”

 

Second, this prophecy that Joseph Prince gave

 

about hair growth

 

had already taken place on 7 Apr 2024,

 

and not about to take place

 

or gradually taking place,

 

when Joseph Prince said:

 

“Hey listen, don’t laugh.

 

Someone’s hair is restored…

 

Now, you can’t look into a mirror right now.

 

Maybe, you can feel it.

 

But God has restored hair.

 

And it’s black, alright.

 

It’s not white hair.”

 

Today is 1 May 2024

 

and 3 Sundays have passed and gone

 

since 7 Apr 2024,

 

but there is still no news

 

of anyone who attended the worship service on 7 Apr 2024

 

who have come forward to testify

 

that his or her hair grew over those bald patches

 

on 7 Apr 2024.

 

About 30 years ago, I said to my wife:

 

“Did you notice that we have people

 

who are gifted in the healing of this area and that area.

 

But so far, I have not come across anyone

 

who has the consistent gifting of making hair grow.”

 

This is true even today.

 

And I further told my wife then

 

that if anyone who has this gift of making hair grow,

 

that person would become an instant billionaire.

 

It would not be long

 

before he is corrupted by his newfound riches,

 

which God forbids.

 

And anyone whose hair grew out of his or her bald patches

 

would out of joy and gratitude to God

 

rush forward to testify.

 

But so far, no one who attended the 7 Apr 2024 worship service

 

has come forward to notify the church.

 

Joseph Prince may play games on this matter,

 

and, perhaps, a few weeks later, 

 

highlight the testimony of one, perhaps from overseas,

 

who had his or her hair grown.

 

But since the prophecy of Joseph Prince

 

was directed at those

 

who attended the worship service on 7 Apr 2024,

 

any testimony

 

that confirms the prophecy of Joseph Prince

 

must come from someone who attended the 7 Apr 2024 service

 

and not any Tom, Dick, or Harry.

 

Even if the person Joseph Prince was referring to

 

when he prophesied

 

was beyond those who attended the 7 Apr 2024 service,

 

that person must still prove that his or her hair  

 

was restored or grew on 7 Apr 2024

 

and not later or over a period of time.

 

But up till today, more than 3 weeks later,

 

no one has come forward to testify

 

that his or her hair grew over the bald patches

 

on 7 Apr 2024.

 

That is why I am of the view

 

that Joseph Prince’s prophecy about someone’s hair growth

 

on 7 Apr 2024 is false,

 

unless, at a later time,

 

someone comes forward to testify,

 

which I doubt will ever happen.

 

Before I move on to his so-called next prophecy of healing,

 

I want you to note that Joseph Prince

 

used the name of God to prophesy,

 

when he said:

 

“But God

 

has restored hair.”  

 

Still on the subject of making hair grow,

 

Kenneth Copeland is another Prosperity Gospel preacher,

 

who is a false prophet.

 

Ex New Creation Church members have told me

 

that Joseph Prince mentioned Kenneth Copeland

 

in his sermons in favourable terms.

 

One Ex NCC member told me when she was in NCC,

 

Rock Bookstore in New Creation Church

 

carries Kenneth Copeland books.

 

Both are teaching the same nonsense

 

that your hair can grow.

 

Both belong to the same gang.

 

In one of his teaching sessions, Mike Winger said;

Verbatim notes are featured in Appendix 2.

 

Just as Mike Winger has advised you

 

to run from Kenneth Copeland,

 

with the same urgency,

 

I warn you to run from Joseph Prince,

 

as both Kenneth Copeland and Joseph Prince are false prophets

 

leading people to their destruction. 

 

Let me feature another of his so-called prophecy of healing

 

that Joseph Prince gave on the same Sunday on 7 Apr 2024;

 

Please click here

 

to view the 50-second video:

 

“I see someone recently, just recently.

 

In fact, you came today

 

and you ask the Lord to call out your healing.

 

You have a heart condition.

 

I see like the doctors have diagnosed that.

 

They just told you that recently.

 

And it is bad. It’s not good.

 

It’s not a good report.

 

And it’s got to do with your heart.

 

I see like the word valve also comes to my mind right now.

 

The Holy Spirit is saying

 

that you are healed completely of that condition.

 

In fact, your relative, grandfather, or father passed away

 

because of that condition.

 

And that’s fresh on your mind.

 

Right now, it’s been bothering you

 

and you’ve been fearful.

 

The Lord, don’t be fearful anymore.

 

The Lord loves you

 

and the Lord has healed you.”

 

Has anybody come forward to testify

 

about what Joseph Prince had prophesied

 

regarding the healing of this person?

 

No.

 

Please note that any testimony

 

must fulfil the conditions

 

that Joseph Prince himself had laid down:

 

First, he or she must be someone

 

who attended the service on 7 Apr 2024,

 

when Joseph Prince said:

 

“In fact, you came today

 

and you ask the Lord to call out your healing.”

 

Second, the heart condition of this person

 

must be a recent occurrence,

 

round about the date of 7 Apr 2024,

 

when Joseph Prince said:

 

“I see someone recently, just recently.

 

… I see like the doctors have diagnosed that.

 

They just told you that recently.”

 

Third, this same heart condition

 

must have also happened to the person’s father or grandfather

 

who passed away because of it,

 

when Joseph Prince said:

 

“In fact, your relative, grandfather, or father passed away

 

because of that condition.”

 

Fourth and most importantly,

 

this person’s heart condition

 

had already been completely healed on 7 Apr 2024,

 

when Joseph Prince said:  

 

“The Holy Spirit is saying

 

that you are healed completely of that condition.

 

… and the Lord has healed you.”

 

These conditions I have listed

 

does not come from me

 

but Joseph Prince himself.  

 

So, did anyone who meet those 4 conditions

 

come forward to testify about his or her healing?

 

No.

 

In fact, any person

 

who is completely healed of his or her heart condition,

 

out of his or her thanksgiving to God,

 

would be so joyful

 

that he or she wants to notify the church almost immediately

 

on 7 Apr 2024 or some days later.

 

But as far as I know,

 

no such testimony was highlighted by New Creation Church.

 

Before I move on,

 

I want you to note that Joseph Prince

 

used the name of the Lord Jesus

 

and the name of the Holy Spirit

 

to prophesy the healing,

 

when he said:

 

“The Holy Spirit is saying

 

that you are healed completely of that condition.

 

… and the Lord has healed you.”

 

These 2 occasions

 

– hair growth and heart condition on 7 Apr 2024

 

are not the only times

 

that Joseph Prince had given so-called prophecies of healing,

 

liberally and flippantly during worship services.

 

On many Sundays

 

throughout the years of his preaching,

 

Joseph Prince has done the same thing.

 

And when a few or a very minority

 

of those hundreds of prophecies that he gave

 

over the years

 

were so-called responded to by people,  

 

Joseph Prince will make a big thing out of it

 

by featuring them as testimonies

 

during worship services.

 

(When I said Joseph Prince’s prophecies

 

were responded to by people,

 

I don’t mean they are necessarily true).

 

But what about those hundreds of other prophecies 

 

that went unaccounted for – that were not fulfilled?

 

This simply means they were false prophecies

 

given by Joseph Prince.

 

They were what I called the ‘Tikam-Tikam’

 

or the ‘Try-Your-Luck’ approach by Joseph Prince

 

– that if he could hit a few out of the very many

 

with ‘correct’ prophecies, he would be vindicated

 

for his prophesying gift, or gift of knowledge and healing giftings.

 

But what about the very many so-called prophecies on healings

 

that went unaccounted for?

 

Well, Joseph Prince knows that not many would be bothered,

 

or even take notice of it,

 

except George Ong. 

 

For the few who are watching his weekly sermons,

 

please take note of every so-called prophecy of healing

 

that Joseph Prince would be giving from now on,

 

and see if we can catch him again

 

for giving false prophecies.  

 

One, such as Joseph Prince,

 

who gave false prophecies,

 

and who used God’s name

 

and spoke by God’s, the Lord Jesus’ and the Holy Spirit’s authority

 

that something would happen

 

but didn’t occur. 

 

is a false prophet.

 

What would happen to false prophets?

 

In the Old Testament,

 

God treats the issue of false teachers utterly seriously.

 

A false prophet who turns the people away from God

 

must be put to death (Deut 13:5; 18:20).

 

Can you sense the gravity of how God wants His people

 

to deal with false prophets?

 

You may protest,

 

“George, are you telling us we are to do the same

 

to the false teachers of today, such as Joseph Prince?

 

Kill them? You gotta be kidding!”

 

Yes, I would be mad if I were to teach that,

 

but honestly, is that all you can say?

 

Don’t you know that the way

 

God treats the false prophets in the Old Testament

 

is a picture of how we ought to deal with them today?

 

Of course, we mustn’t kill them,

 

but do we work hard at ‘killing’ their false teachings?

 

(That’s what I have been doing to Joseph Prince’s heresies

 

day in day out for the last 7 years).

 

Do we sweat our guts out

 

by refuting their false teachings aggressively

 

and rebuking them sharply?

 

Do we warn our sheep ardently

 

from ever falling under their influence?

 

Are we prepared to cut off our fellowship with them

 

if they remain recalcitrantly unrepentant?

 

Unbelievably, there are Singapore Pastors

 

who are still meeting Joseph Prince.

 

Or do we pretend as many do,

 

that the problem doesn’t exist at all

 

because we don’t want our respectable image marred

 

and the trouble of getting our hands dirty

 

with controversies?

 

Putting the Old Covenant false prophets to death

 

seems extreme and unthinkable to us.

 

But God Himself knows about the toxic harm and irreparable damage

 

that false teachers could do to the community of His people.

 

He knows the only way to deal with the cancer of heresy

 

is to cut it at its root

 

before it destroys the entire community.

 

When God treated false prophets with utter severity,

 

the church has no right to shrug it off

 

as a small issue to be overlooked.

 

When God is greatly intolerant about false teachers,

 

we cannot become carelessly tolerant of them.

 

Is there a more serious offense for false prophets such as Joseph Prince

 

to falsify the truth of the scriptures?

 

Is there anything more reprehensible for heretics such as Joseph Prince

 

to lie about the truth of God’s word?

 

Is there anything more damning for a false teacher,

 

such as Joseph Prince,

 

to claim that he is preaching the gospel that leads to heaven

 

when in reality, he is preaching heresy that leads to hell?

 

Many believers of today think the decree of death by God

 

on false prophets in the Old Testament and their followers (Deut 13:1-11),

 

only applies to the Old Testament, but not the New.

 

But this isn’t true as Jesus in the New Testament

 

had pronounced the sentence of hell (spiritual death), twice,

 

on the Pharisees and the Scribes

 

who were the false teachers of His day (Matt 7:15,19; 23:33).

 

Furthermore, followers who embraced their teachings

 

would suffer the same fate too (Rev 2:20-23):

 

Revelation 2:20-23 NIV

20 “Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. 21 I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. 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. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.”

 

“I will strike her children dead,” (Rev 2:23)

 

– referring to the spiritual children of the false prophetess, Jezebel,

 

which would include members of the Church of Thyatira

 

who have embraced her false teachings.

 

Jesus takes the threat of false teachings so seriously

 

that unless these followers of heretics repent,

 

He was prepared to cause intense suffering on His own children

 

and even strike them dead.

 

Be warned that such severe judgements

 

are not only reserved for false teachers

 

but also their followers.

 

This is true both in the Old Testament (Deut 13:6-10; Jer 14:14-16)

 

as well as the New (Rev 2:20-23).

 

My loving advice to the followers of Joseph Prince is this,

 

“You had better flee from him before it is too late.”

 

If anyone accuses me for using ‘scare tactics’,

 

then he or she is also accusing God and the Lord Jesus

 

for committing the same act,

 

as I am unveiling no more than what they have revealed.

 

Since God was utterly tough on false prophets

 

that He would even put them to death in the Old Testament,

 

the church of today has no right to be any lenient to heretics,

 

such as Joseph Prince,

 

and be complacent about dealing with him and his heresies.

 

Since the Lord Jesus warned false teachers

 

and especially people who collude with them

 

with such severe judgement in Revelation

 

that could even result in death (Rev 2:20-23),

 

the contemporary church

 

has no right to go soft on Joseph Prince,

 

and take the issue of guarding their flock

 

against being poisoned by his heresies

 

any more lightly.

 

The reason why such occurrences are rare

 

is because of the true grace of God.

 

But never take the grace of God for granted

 

because there may come a day

 

when His patience may run out on you.

“Joseph Prince always says

 

‘You need to preach everything in its context’

 

for many many years.

 

Apparently, it is to tell the listener,

 

I am preaching in context so you can trust me.

 

This is very deceptive indeed.

 

Unknowingly,

 

‘I have the mind of Christ’

 

became one of my prayers over the years.

 

Now I have to unlearn all the rubbish.”

 

@lindakoo5221

 

“Rev George Ong, thank you for your courage.

 

You are certainly not alone.

 

God is with you in this calling.

 

If God is with and for you,

 

nobody can be against you.

 

And no weapon that is formed against you shall prevail.

 

Jesus shall rule and reign

 

in all that He has commissioned you to do.

 

His will shall be done in and through you. Amen!”

 

@kayqq361

 

“This guy is full of rubbish.

 

Still spewing so much nonsense after so many years.

 

This conman literally thinks he’s God.

 

No change until now.”

 

@WordsofGodThe

 

“Do you see the problem here?

 

Joseph Prince was so sarcastic to his followers

 

when he smiled and told them sarcastically

 

that they can get a new brain

 

(which he knows fully well

 

that it is not possible and not scriptural),

 

and yet his followers taught he really (literally) saw

 

the ‘brains’, the ‘organs’, the ‘livers’, the ‘hearts’,

 

and the ‘tongues’ prepared for them in heaven?

 

Well, this is the proof

 

that they are already deep in HYPNOTISM

 

(not able to think independently anymore).

 

Yes, I believe that this is a spiritual battle

 

and Satan knows the kind of person

 

who is qualified to assist him

 

to preach against the doctrine of Christ;

 

however, it is also a physical or mental battle in the mind

 

of the people too

 

because it involves the use of hypnotism and occultism

 

to control the minds of the people.

 

I realized it only recently, after Covid-19,

 

when Joseph Prince disclosed his early involvement with occultism

 

and when I started to talk to more NCC people.

 

It becomes much clearer now

 

after he confesses that he would pray

 

and speak to your hair, your trees, your pimples,

 

your mosquitoes, your organs, or even your ‘brain’.

 

Do you know that the people

 

who want to speak to your ‘brain’ (or hypnotize your brain)

 

are not only the magicians, illusionists, psychologists,

 

hypnotists, or con-artist;

 

but also the sorcerers, occultists,

 

and new age satanists too?

 

They love to tell your ‘brain’ what to think

 

and what you should not think with their hypnotic skill.

 

Do you know that Joseph Prince

 

loves to tell you what you should not think too?

 

Do you realize that he is constantly telling you

 

not to watch social media

 

(especially any media that exposes his lies or deception),

 

not to judge, not to criticize, not to speak evil of anyone,

 

not to be bothered by your critics

 

(including those who correct you),

 

not to worry, not to watch bad news,

 

not to believe in any doctor’s report,

 

and not to think negatively too?

 

Yes, when this is preached constantly, radically,

 

and repeatedly in almost all his sermons,

 

over and over, again and again,

 

and hundreds or thousands of times,

 

people’s minds will no longer be able to think independently,

 

but subconsciously forced to think positively of everything

 

and positively of him too.

 

So, now if you come along

 

and do not speak positively of their very ‘positive’ pastor,

 

you would be subconsciously thought of

 

as a very ‘negative’ person

 

who only likes to judge, criticize, gossip, speak negatively,

 

or speak evil of others.

 

Joseph Prince has really taught them well to think:

 

1. that we are his critics

 

who are jealous of him and dislike him, and

 

2. that just because of our dislike of him,

 

dislike of his hair,

 

or dislike of his ways of speaking (positive things),

 

we would just ‘dig into’ all his sermons with fault-finding

 

on whatever he has to say

 

Yes, I believe that 99% of those who still remain in NCC

 

would think so

 

(because of their constant exposure to the messages

 

of not to judge, not to speak evil,

 

and not to think negatively

 

which is preached under heavy HYPNOTISM).

 

It is so hypnotic that before you can even start to reason with them,

 

they have already closed their ears with both hands

 

and stormed out of the room or building immediately

 

(I am not exaggerating).

 

So, if you want to talk to any NCC people,

 

the first thing you must do is NOT to criticize Joseph Prince,

 

which I find it very hard.

 

However, I believe that, as the years go by,

 

it should become easier and easier,

 

as compared with the time before Covid-19

 

when I found it almost impossible

 

to talk to anyone of them.”

 

@everykneeshallbowzao

 

“Because this type of preaching by Joseph Prince feeds their flesh;

 

and that’s what they want for themselves as well.

 

And to find out that Jesus is our servant

 

and will do everything for us

 

and we don’t need to do anything

 

sounds great.”

@user-iu3dm5qk7p

 

“Joseph Prince says he loves to preach in context

 

because he was trying to give the false impression

 

that he has faithfully been doing so.

 

But those who read the Bible

 

know he has been doing the very opposite.

 

How did he ask God for a new brain

 

to lie through his teeth habitually

 

without even a blink?”

 

@Rayshader

 

“These ‘grace’ messages are nothing more than

 

self-gratification towards the flesh.

 

They are constantly promoting

 

what God will do for the believer

 

from a worldly perspective

 

but never the other way round.” (1 Jn 2:15-16; Jn 15:5-6)

 

@joyceliew4352

 

“For me, my biggest blunder

 

was to fall into Joseph Prince’s teachings

 

because I didn’t know The Word.

 

I listened to his sermons

 

but didn’t bother to read and study The Word.

 

That’s why I believed everything he said.

 

I looked up to him as the anointed of God,

 

thinking I am so blessed

 

to have such wise and caring pastor,

 

teaching The Word so differently from other pastors.

 

I thought to myself

 

that I have never heard anyone preach like Joseph Prince,

 

therefore, he must be God-sent!

 

To New Creation Churchgoers,

 

I was just like you all; so loved Joseph Prince.

 

Looking up to him!

 

As long the word is preached by Joseph Prince,

 

surely, I will claim it and stand for it.

 

I will argue with anyone who comes against him.

 

I will not associate with those

 

who come against Joseph Prince’s ministry!

 

Until I opened up The Word

 

and read it from Genesis to Revelation

 

and still repeating and repeating…

 

because if I stop,

 

I will forget His Word through other deceptions.

 

Rev George Ong will not be the last man

 

to call out the false teachers.

 

The Bible clearly informs us that

 

because of God’s grace and love for His people,

 

He will keep raising people

 

to sound the alarm

 

and warning the people

 

to repent of our sins (following other gods).

 

Today’s God has set ‘blessings’ & ‘cursing’ before us

 

and He told us to choose ‘blessings’

 

Read Deuteronomy 11.”

“2 Corinthians 2:16 is taken totally out of context.

 

It’s talking about having spiritual understanding

 

to evaluate all things.

 

Having the mind of Christ is to have wisdom from above

 

to understand spiritual truths.

 

He’s not even preaching half-truths here

 

but a total new gospel of his own.”

 

@user-qi8rv4ez7u

 

“He is showing that you can take any verse,

 

put it in your own context (eg asking for new brains)

 

and make up your own doctrine.

 

Either he is doing it deliberately,

 

or he is ignorant of the Word.

 

On both counts, he is not a credible teacher

 

who cares about his followers’ spiritual well-being.

 

He is ridiculing himself. 

 

A preacher who professes to put Christ at the centre

 

does not have the mind of Christ

 

to understand the deep spiritual truths about God; 

 

for that’s what the mind of Christ is for

 

given that human reason is limited.”

“He could get a Olympic gold medal

 

for being a heretic teacher.”

 

@edmundsim6251

 

“Ask for a new brain and be brainwashed.

 

Jokes aside, didn’t Jesus say

 

we will be just like the Angels before the lord?

 

We should be spirit

 

and I don’t see how he sees limbs and brains

 

all over in heavens?

 

But it is better not to add on to the words to the Bible

 

and stick to the fulfilment in spirit

 

instead of physical and materialistic needs

 

which is keeping Christians away from the spirit

 

and focusing too much

 

on the desires and temptations of the flesh.”

“Tell your kids to just study hard and smart Lah.

 

Joseph Prince just conned the people out of context.”

 

@LuiSieh

 

“The whole Psalm 139 is worth re-reading.

 

It will put into context

 

what Joseph Prince has taken out of his context.”

Verbatim Notes of Mike Winger’s

 

3-minute teaching video:

 

“Kenneth Copeland has got to be one of the best examples

 

of all time of one of the worst examples

 

of someone pretending to be a Christian Pastor.

 

I am appalled and shocked,

 

not only by his behaviour but by his following.

People are giving him money,

 

large amounts of money and it blows me away.

 

What he’s done now,

 

is now he’s saying he can grow your hair.

 

Now, Kenneth Copeland can grow your hair.

 

Listen to the latest on this and yeah

 

we’re going to talk about it today

 

because I think we can learn from this.

 

I think that we can change things

 

if we have a little bit of an analysis

 

of what kind of wackiness is going on.

 

Put your hand on your head like that.

 

Bald spots, I call you go!

 

Hair grow!

 

Hair grow!

 

We’re going to talk about that.

 

And ya, listen, if you’re a follower of Kenneth Copeland,

 

this is your chance to get out right now, right here, today.

 

This is your chance to get out of this.

 

The man, I think is insane.

 

I don’t know what else is going on with him

 

and I do not say any of those things lightly,

 

Not remotely.

 

I am accountable for my words.

 

I say, I think he’s insane

 

because I want you to be warned

 

against the insanity of this man

 

and his false teaching and his false prophecy.

 

We need solid Christians online to call out this stuff

 

because it can’t just be the world that notices these things.

 

The man will be stand condemned before God for all eternity

 

when he goes into judgment. It’s going to be.

 

I mean he’ll be, suddenly the delusion will come off

 

and he will realise that he was wrong.

 

And that he led many others into error as well.

 

He’s absolutely a false prophet.

 

So, let me look again at this hair grow video though

 

because my favorite person ever is in this video.

 

Put your hand on your head like that.

 

Okay, I’m muting the audio,

 

I just want you to watch for a second.

 

Look at this gentleman,

 

the black gentleman here.

 

He’s the smartest guy in the room.

 

You’ll see him in just a second.

 

And he is like okay, hair grow.

 

My hair is supposed to grow.

 

I feel like an idiot.

 

Look at him, there he is.

 

Oh, gosh!

 

What is going on?

 

What are we doing?

 

Where did my wife bring me today?

 

Oh, man, what is this?

 

And listen, if there is more people

 

who are like this gentleman here.

 

You’re listening to Kenneth Copeland,

 

you’re like, I’m trying to follow on, I just.

 

You know something is weird about it.

 

You know he says things about Jesus.

 

He says things about the Bible

 

and many of the things he says are true

 

because he’s actually just quoting Scripture

 

or repeating things that actual Christians say.

 

Okay, and then, he says crazy stuff like this,

 

put your hand on your head, hair grow now,

 

and the guy is looking around

 

like I don’t feel like right about this.

 

And that gentleman right there,

 

I’d love to have a chat with you, brother.

 

Um, time for you to leave.”
