Clash of the cults in Singapore; Apostolic pot calling the Islamic kettle black.

In a recent AsiaOne article, pastor and founder of Singapore’s Cornerstone Community Church, Yang Tuck Yoong, apologised to Muslim leaders for the ‘anti-Islamic comments’ of their guest speaker Lou Engle at one of their events, Yang Tuck Yoong promised he would not be inviting NARpostle Engle to Singapore again. The AsiaOne article below highlights how ignorant the Singaporean media and church authorities are on the cults in their very own ‘backyard’. These three cults are:

  1. The cult of Islam.
  2. The cult of the New Apostolic Reformation (Lou Engle being a leading NARpostle of this movement)
  3. The cult of Liberalism.

In utmost ignorance, the western world and media continue to call Islam a religion when in fact it is by definition a cult. As the Koran and other Islamic texts explain, Mohammad was visited by the angel Gabriel, received divine teachings of Allah and thus recognized as a prophet. What is ironic is that the self-appointed Apostle Lou Engle condemns a cult founded by a self-appointed prophet. It’s even more ironic to see the ‘National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS)’, condemn someone who does not hold to the true gospel (Lou Engle) to protect another group that does not believe the bible (Islam).

The NCCS display their liberal ‘social justice warrior’ tactics when they made the following claims:

“NCCS believes that with the goodwill already established among religious groups in Singapore, we can overcome this unfortunate incident with greater appreciation of the religious sensitivities in Singapore.”

Don’t let truth get in the way of liberal diplomacy and social gimmicks. When pastors cower and Christian truth is absent from pulpits, apostacy and liberalism will grow in the darkness spawned by extremists. When the media cannot find a Christian voice to speak out against cults, they will find the next best thing – which is why they turned to the NCCS who offer anything but the biblical stance of Christianity:

“And, in the long run, develop stronger trust and understanding between followers of the different faiths that make up our homeland.”

This kind of utopian belief helps no one as all have to compromise and sacrifice something to appease the other side. Rather than deal with issues, they ignore them. While the NCCS are happy that “the relevant religious leaders can graciously and maturely handle the matter and keep unhappiness from deepening or spreading”, this has not stopped Islam making the world unhappy with its slaughter of the innocents around the world. Singaporeans need to talk to Christians fleeing from Muslims in Islamic countries who burn down their houses and murder their families. While it is correct that NAR cult extremists like Engle are not welcomed in Singapore, one has to question why the NCCS even bother to exist when they took so long to deal with the criminal activities of fraudulent NARpostles like Kong Hee in their own ‘backyard’.

The NCCS needs to be held accountable by the body of Christ in general. If the NCCS really are godly men, where were their voices when City Harvest Church lead pastor Kong Hee continued to lie about his crimes, undermining the Singaporean Christian community? Where were their voices to condemn the other fraudulent CHC pastors who endorsed his wife’s promiscuous style in her attempt at a lucrative Hollwood music career? Where were they to pick up the broken lives of those abused by Kong Hee’s iron-fisted leadership. Who are these NNCS leaders who claim to represent the Christian faith but lack any form of conviction, courage or biblical integrity when dealing with criminals, cults and their apostolic/prophetic leaders?

Singapore churches must ‘exercise due diligence’ when inviting foreign preachers, says national council

SINGAPORE: The National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS) on Thursday (Apr 5) reminded churches to exercise due diligence when inviting foreign preachers, in the wake of a controversy surrounding an American Christian leader’s visit here.

The preacher, Mr Lou Engle, was alleged to have made anti-Islamic comments at a Singapore event last month, leading to an investigation by the Ministry of Home Affairs as well as Singapore police requesting him to return to the country for an interview.

Mr Engle was speaking at a conference organised by Singapore’s Cornerstone Community Church. Its pastor and founder Yang Tuck Yoong apologised to Muslim leaders yesterday and promised that Mr Engle would not be invited to Singapore again.

In a letter signed by its president Rennis Ponniah and general secretary Dr Ngoei Foong Nghian, the NCCS said it “notes with deep concern the controversy” caused by Mr Engle.

But the council added that it was “glad” to see Mr Yang’s apology.

“We appreciate Rev Yang’s clear disavowal of the remarks made as ‘insensitive’ and having no place in the multi-racial and multi-religious context of Singapore,” said NCCS.

“We welcome the pledge made that his church would exercise greater vigilance in the future when inviting speakers from overseas to public events.”

NCCS also expressed its appreciation for Muslim and Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) leaders’ “measured response” towards the incident.

“Their gracious acceptance of Rev Yang’s apology shows a magnanimity which bodes well for inter-religious harmony in our nation,” said NCCS. “Where there are unintended hurts, it is marvellous that the relevant religious leaders can graciously and maturely handle the matter and keep unhappiness from deepening or spreading.

“The leaders of MUIS have shown a very good example in overcoming the present controversy and moving on positively in the established direction of nurturing good relations among different faiths.”

The council said that great vigilance and care would be needed to safeguard harmonious inter-faith relations.

“NCCS believes that with the goodwill already established among religious groups in Singapore, we can overcome this unfortunate incident with greater appreciation of the religious sensitivities in Singapore,” it said.

“And, in the long run, develop stronger trust and understanding between followers of the different faiths that make up our homeland.”
