Kong Hee yang merupakan pendiri dari Gereja City Harvest ditahan karena dituduh menggunakan jutaan dolar uang gereja untuk membantu istrinya yang seorang artis, Ho Yeow Sun, untuk meningkatkan karirnya. Polisi Singapura berencana akan menahan dia pada hari ini, Rabu (27/6) dengan konspirasi melanggar kepercayaan.

Menurut pernyataan polisi, pemimpin empat gereja dengan 23.000 anggota itu juga akan ditahan dengan tuduhan melakukan konspirasi pencatatan keuangan yang tidak benar. Ditemukan kecurangan setidaknya senilai $18 juta atau hampir Rp 180 miliar dari uang jemaat, menurut pernyataan komisi sumbangan dalam laman websitenya. Karena itu, Gereja City Harvest (CHC) membawanya ke pengadilan pada Selasa (26/6) kemarin.

"Pagi ini, Pendeta Kong Hee, Pendeta Tan Ye Peng, John Lam, Chew Eng Han dan Sharon Tan telah diberi informasi untuk menghadiri pengadilan besok (hari ini, red). Tidak ada kasus yang menentang gereja saat ini," tulis Aries Zulkarnain, pendeta eksekutif Gereja City Harvest.

Selama kasus ini berlangsung, maka Dr. Phil Pringle yang merupakan pendiri Gereja Christian City di Sydney dan Dr. A. R. Bernard pendiri dan CEO Christian Cultural Centre di New York yang akan melayani menggantikan Pendeta Kong Hee. "Kedua pendeta ini ditunjuk sebagai pendeta penasihat senior melalui CHC," tulis Zulkarnain. "Managemen gereja akan terus menyediakan arahan untuk tetap menjalankan gereja. Tata laksana di gereja dan pertemuan kelompok sel akan berlangsung seperti biasa, termasuk ibadah Minggu di Singapore Expo dan Jurong West. Sementara ini, tetap mempertahankan gereja, pendeta-pendeta kami, pemimpin dan keluarga mereka di dalam doa." tambahnya.

Ini merupakan salah satu kasus besar karena terjadi kepada pendeta yang cukup terkenal. Namun, kita tetap mengharapkan yang terbaik dari situasi yang buruk ini dan berharap gereja ini akan terus berdiri dan menjadi berkat buat sekeliling mereka. Sekaligus berdoa bahwa kebenaran, yang terburuk sekalipun, akan terungkap sehingga di dalam gereja tidak ada kebohongan.

    When one is classified a "FOOL" acoindcrg to the Holy Bible (as declared by God Himself), is basically one who has no knowledge of who the True God of the Bible is. It has nothing to do with the carnal relationship we have on earth, that's a given. Anyways, we are made of dust - aka flesh and blood. God of the Holy Bible is neither. He's eternal and more importantly, Spirit and a Holy Spirit at that.One may be a able to read the words of the Holy Bible but Jesus clearly declared, "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life."And precisely, the words will be just words to the carnal man not born of the Holy Spirit. Knowing who God and Jesus Christ has nothing to do with the man but whether God has chosen him before the foundations of the world to reveal Himself to the creature made of dust.And you think you really know the God of the Bible by just reading the Holy Bible with being born of His Spirit by His will? Well, good for you - that explains the "depth" of what true Christianity is all about. It's nothing to do with money or wealth! Those who get rich from using the name of God in vain will be held accountable on the Day of the Lord. For God declared, "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain." and Jesus even taught, "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."And you think you know Christianity? Ya, right!
