Joseph Prince’s sick logic that those who rebut his doctrine cannot bring their child to see doctor – By Rev George Ong (Dated 16 Nov 2022)
(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 weekly Sunday sermon aired on YouTube on 13 Nov 2022, 3 days ago, Joseph Prince said;

“The funny thing is that they themselves don’t believe it. When their child fall sick, alright, the first they do, after they pray for their child is what, bring them to see the doctor. Amen. You don’t have to ask them; do you want your child to be well?”
“So your child is sick, do you want your child to be well? Put aside your doctrine. Speak from your heart. You are made in God’s image. Do you want your child to be well? Yes. When it comes to healing, ‘Oh, we got to be careful, some healings, you know, God wants us sick to teach us a lesson.’ Amen. But you don’t believe that about your child.”
Joseph Prince has again deliberately and repeatedly, confused the issue
between his false health and wealth gospel, that every believer has the covenantal right to enjoy perfect health, which is what his critics are dead against,
and the fact that God still heals today, which is what his critics believe in, and they praise God for that.
And because Joseph Prince’s critics reject his perfect health doctrine but believe that God still heals today, is it a sin or is there something wrong that Joseph Prince tries to insinuate, when they bring their children to see a doctor?
What his critics reject is the health and wealth gospel of Joseph Prince – that every believer will experience perfect health – that God must heal every one of them of every sickness and disease.
Yes, God can heal, but He does not heal every time, for all His sovereign purposes unknown to man.
So, if God chooses not to heal, even when it comes to our children, do we throw tantrums at God?
Is the welfare of our children more important than God’s sovereign will and purpose?
Of course not. As a mature believer, we should accept it.
Only immature people, like Joseph Prince, who is acting like a kid, would demand that God must heal every one of our children’s sicknesses.
In Joseph Prince’s health and wealth gospel, there is no such thing as God won’t heal.
He must heal because Prince believes that every New Covenant believer has the covenantal right to experience perfect healing.
Joseph Prince, indeed, possesses the logic of an immature child
– that just because his critics refuse to accept his perfect healing doctrine that every believer will be healed,
they have no right to bring their child to see a doctor?
What childish and evil logic!
