Kong Hee’s false Prosperity Jesus exposed (Part 2)

Thanks to the work of the blog WasJesusPoor? (WJP?), this article will be part of a series examining the false Jesus of Kong Hee. We would like to ask you to please consider the work of those from WJP? and visit their site.

A while ago, Kong Hee preached a sermon titled, “Was Jesus Poor?”.

This particular sermon helped many Christians and pastors around the world rightly discern that City Harvest Church was nothing more than a Prosperity cult, using a false Jesus and a false faith as a means to get wealthy.

WasJesusPoor? wrote the following article that exposed point by point what was wrong with the above sermon:

#2 Reason: He had many wealthy partners supporting him.


#2 Reason: He had many wealthy partners supporting him.

Here, I think Kong Hee got lost in his message to prove that Jesus was rich. The verses he had read proved otherwise. Let’s read:

LUKE 8:1-3
And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him, And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance.

Why would Lord Jesus need financial support if He was really rich? It simply doesn’t make sense.

Later in his speeck, it became clear that his agenda is to explain his so-called Jesus’ sophisticated traveling organization which is ‘very expensive’, so he can justify his also ‘very expensive’ evangelical campaigns abroad. I will discuss this wild imagination of Kong Hee in next post.

So, does this reason prove that Lord Jesus was rich? Something is not right here. It is true that Jesus has spent a lot of money in His ministry. And most of them are spent for the poor as can be seen in John 13:29 which says:

JOHN 13:29
For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.

But what Kong Hee should also realize is that, the money is not our Lord Jesus’ personal money. It is the ministry’s money. It is the church’s money and not Jesus’. It came from the contributions of members as mentioned in Luke 8:1-3 and not the pastor’s personal money.

And no matter how hard Kong Hee tried to compare his ministry to that of our Lord Jesus, I do not think Kong Hee’s ministry can be likened to our Lord Jesus’ ministry. I don’t see even a slight similarity.

To give you just one example, Kong Hee’s ministry sells his sermons (You can order it in his website). But our Lord Jesus and his disciples have never and will never ever sell sermons to people who needed it, especially to the poor.

And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

The Lord Jesus has commanded this to his disciples saying, “As ye go, preach… freely ye have received, freely give”. He never ask for payment in his preachings, so His disciples also should not go preaching asking for payment, “freely ye have received, freely give”.

Find a church who does not sell their sermons or doctrines, just like the true church of God mentioned in the bible. I’m so lucky to have found one! Thanks be unto God!

#3 Reason to be continue, with God’s help.
