In the recent two-part investigation on C3 Church and Phil Pringle, ‘A Current Affair’ made strong claims that were substantiated with audio/footage of Pringle from the ‘not so distant’ past. With that audio/footage in mind, Church Watch Central has other footage that needs to be seriously addressed.
About ten years ago, CWC uploaded many of Phil Pringle’s false teachings on their YouTube Channel. C3 Church, along with Hillsong and City Harvest Church Singapore, had this YouTube account shut down – obviously because of the damning evidence of their deception. Fortunately, despite unfairly losing the YouTube account, CWC still has all the original footage.
As you listen to (or watch) the following archived clips, Phil Pringle discusses what he terms ‘Keys to Financial Excellence’ – and pay particular attention to his misuse of the term ‘tithe’.
- Biblical shepherds teach that tithing is ‘optional’ for the simple reason that the command to tithe was part of the Mosaic Law, and Christians are not under Law.
- Biblical shepherds teach that giving is an important aspect of their Christian lives, and all Christians should give, sometimes sacrificially.
- Biblical shepherds teach about the importance and benefits of giving, as the precious sheep in their care, are able.
Phil Pringle has often been heard stating that the only thing God tests people on is their ‘giving’ and this is simply not true. God tested Israel on their tithe – when the true body of believers are tested, it’s part of His purpose to prove that their faith is real.
“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:2-4
In truth – these ‘movements’ really want their false teaching away from public scrutiny. You can now listen to (or view) these clips of Phil Pringle blatantly scamming people out their hard-earned money in his shameless ‘Financial Excellence’ sermons below (transcripts will be added over the next few weeks):

FINANCIAL EXCELLENCE 2:
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.” 1 John 4:1-6
