Is your leader just as infallible as Phil Pringle? Are your leaders’ visions as divinely inspired as the writings of scripture? C3 Global Church members accept this premise.
NAR Apostle Phil Pringle recently ‘cast vision’ for his latest Vision Sunday campaign. Phil Pringle is the ‘apostolic’ leader of C3 Church Global, a false teacher who claims to receive direct revelation, prophecy and visions from God. In the video below Pringle appears to compare himself to the Apostle John, claiming the vision he received from God is “like a letter from Christ to us,” the way John received “a letter to each church.”
This is nothing more than Phil Pringle conjuring up an ‘apostolic allusion’ that his words are as infallible as the Apostle John. This is the same man who prophesied falsely over Kong Hee and his wife Sun Ho, ‘apostolic’ leaders of City Harvest Church Singapore. With Pringle declaring Kong Hee would not spend one night in jail, Kong Hee is now serving a four year sentence in Changi Prison. This is the same man who defended not only their criminal behaviour but also Sun Ho’s sexually explicit music videos – in the name of God. This is the same man who has refused to be held accountable for serious scandals within his own movement, both here in Australia and overseas.
Yet for some reason, members of his church have no problem allowing this “lawless one / false prophet”, to represent himself as an infallible figure.
“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. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’” Matthew 7:21-23
“Alright! So, I want to share a couple of things here tonight that I have shared in several meetings in the last few days. And one is the vision, in case you didn’t get.
I want every single member in our church to get a hold of this because it’s like a letter from Christ to us. And he wrote letters to the churches. In the Book of Revelation there is a letter to each church.
And each letter is contextualized. God has never actually talked about a universal church everywhere. The church is always in a location. And so it’s not like, ‘I like belong to the church’, universal, anywhere in the world. We do belong to the great body of Christ. There’s no doubt about that- and to the Kingdom of God.
But whenever God is speaking to the church, he addresses it to the church in its context. And so, to you and I occasionally, a letter will come from the Spirit, guiding us into the future. And he uses scripture often to speak to us. And this particular scripture talks about we’re going to move into a day when many people are going to say, ‘Come let us go to the house of the Lord. And He will teach us’.
And so I – I believe teaching is going to rise to another level. And teaching is different to preaching and proclamation. It’s unfolding the Word of God. So he says, “I’m going to bring people to teaching where they are fed the Word of God. And they are going to teach you of .. teach the people of God His ways.”
And that’s what I want to do here tonight. I want to teach you one of the ways of God. God has ways that He does things that are very different to the way we do things.”
“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. ” 2 Timothy 3-4
