Just one day after hosting a very successful conference touting such speakers as David Yonggi Cho, pastor of the 800,000-strong Yoido Full Gospel Church (the world’s largest church), the word is out that Kong Hee, senior pastor of City Harvest Church, and 16 other individuals linked to the church are now being probed by the Commercial Affairs Department for alleged misuse of funds. More information will be available very soon, but for now, take a look at these tweets coming in from City Harvesters. The one thing you’ve got to give Kong Hee is how he’s able to take 33,000 otherwise very sane and smart people and make them give their “100% trust” to him. How many of these people are going to be disappointed over the next few days as details are revealed? Kong Hee, after all, has shown himself to be just as fallible as any of us — devotionals sold to church members and entries on his blog have been found to contain word-for-word plagiarism with zero crediting of sources (so much for his PhD). But, hey, if you’re a City Harvester, all this sh*t happening is just the press stirring the pot and the work of the devil. Kong Hee and the leadership of CHC are above reproach and incapable of wrongdoing.
