Well if Goldman Sach's Lloyd Blankfein can claimed that they were "doing God's work" and most Goldman staffers if they were not fired are still with the company, why shouldn't it be the same at CHC?
No, the truth is too unbearable. It is far more attractive for Kong Hee et al to rationalize that they were doing God's work even as they had broken the law. It was man's law anyway. God's law is higher and beyond man's law.
I repeat myself. They broke the law but they didn't do anything wrong because they were obeying God and called to reach the non-Christians through Project CrossOver. These supporters must be believers in the rightness of the what their pastors had done.
What is God's work like? Anything but all these. And what have Kong Hee and his comrades in crime done? I quote myself:
Anyway this is a strange world, even those who are God believers, I have watched them figured many ways to drive Him into their holy books and reappear from there sanctioning their moral travesty.
Remember the world's greatest crimes were done in the name of God. But they are never done in the character or station of Jesus Christ who was an itinerant teacher, penniless and homeless, caring for others till it hurts. Also when he was on trial, his followers fled but Kong Hee's followers stuck with him. Quite an achievement even God could not manage!
God wins by losing, not using the methods of this world. Not with Kong Hee's methods. Of course if you want to fix a successful outcome, you could never figure how losing can bring success right? And if the law abiding approach wasn't working, extra-legal ways must be entertained. That's what they had done in the name of God.
Update: Just received this blog post on CHC posted on March 29, 2010. An astute analysis of the church as a business. See http://thinking-free-and-fair.blogspot.sg/2010/03/analysis-into-wealth-of-city-harvest.html
Indeed if you want to fix the outcome like I blogged earlier these strategies are effective. I repeat, God excels at winning by losing so that no man can boast. These guys use a totally different approach.
