The Kong Hee's case for my kids

Yesterday I made an entry to this blog which at least one of my kids told me she couldn't really understand. Well it is partly because the courts have not tried and passed its judgement. The more important reason, I am not sharing yet. Let's just say I was never a fan of CHC.

The news flow is quickly leading the public to their own obvious conclusion. The behavior of supporters at the subordinate courts were not laudable either.

There is a letter from Lawrence Khong urging all Christians to pray for City Harvest Church, refrain from talking about it on social media etc., I am also not a fan of Lawrence Khong's church. has a rational discussion thread on this topic which I would urge my kids to read. This will give them a useful flavor "Christian talk" , reactions and response. The thread is too long and I don't have time to read most of it.  Page 1 and 30 at least were rational.

Get educated. This case will not be the last.

I am not surprised that Kong Hee tweeted this. I have explained it in this blog yesterday.

Later at 1pm, Kong posted on his Twitter account, alluding to a Biblical verse: "Why r you down in e dumps dear soul? Why r you crying e blues? Fix my eyes on God...He puts a smile on my face. He's my God."

Guy and gang think they are still doing God's work. Personally I think they are completely in denial and deluded. Will we get to learn that they had wasted so much tax payers' money investigating them over the last two years? If they had done wrong, wouldn't it be right and Christian to confess and ask for forgiveness two years ago? Well innocent until proven guilty and if found to be guilty only the legal violence of the state is able to force them to prison. They might just go there insisting that they were dong God's work. I hope not. I hope they broke before the judge. After all their conscience must have told them it was not right, otherwise why try so hard to cover their tracks? There is one more possibility: the fear of being misunderstood. I have been to that place before, and I think such circumstances are rare and by obvious divine appointment.

We shall see. Time reveals all truths.


  1. It is true that we follow the innocent-until-proven-guilty rule here, but it also behooves us as adults to better explain things to our children and to those outside the flock. We must learn accountability.

  2. I saw the statement by City Harvest Church this morning,that is not a clever statement,they should leave it to the court to decide.

    1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye. (Matthew, Chapter 7)

  3. To all, lets fast and pray, for it is for your own good.
    Mr Micah Lim.

  4. Spend happy time with the kids. Go to the ice-cream cafe for happier family times. Either way it goes, it will be a crisis.
