RE: Joseph Prince
The Straits Times published a special edition on the 17th of July 2010 called Rise of the Megachurches,Gospel & Glitz.
A quote from ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SIKH ADVISORY BOARD FOR THE PERIOD NOVEMBER 2009 – OCTOBER 2010
Quote:10.1 An article in the Straits Times of 17 July 2010 on Mega Churches in SingaporeThe Sikh Advisory Board as well as many other Sikhs were upset that the news paper published that Joseph Prince's father was
“an often drunk Sikh priest”,because they felt it made Sikhs out to be drunkards and irresponsible fathers.
Whether or not his father was a Sikh priest does not even matter.Joseph Prince's old name Xenonamandar Jegahusiee Singh
is a Sikh name and he kept his Sikh religious name even while founding a so called christian church.He even kept his Sikh religious name for
6 or 7 YEARS after founding a so called christian church.In this article Vic found here http://www.tmc.org.my/documents/pjp.pdf
Quote:Joseph Prince,by the way,was a name he adopted when he was working as an IT consultant before he became a full-time pastor.
So he didn't change his name because he turned from his Sikh religious beliefs and fully embraced Christianity?
He also does not believe in fasting.He speaks against it in Destined to Reign on page 275 and 276
He refers to this verse
Mar 9:29 And He said to them, "This kind cannot come out by anything but prayer."
and then says
Quote:But do you know that in the original Greek text,the word "fasting" does not appear in that verse?
That sounds like he is anti KJV to me and you know who else does not believe in fasting?
They also believe that all paths lead to God.(Religious Pluralism)
Quote:The Sikh religion rejects all rituals, superstitions and routine practices like fasting and pilgrimage,
There are many,many bible verses that speak of fasting even in the NASB and NIV translations.
I think fasting is a personal thing between a person and God.
I think we have freewill to fast or not to fast.
Why would a person speak against something that Jesus himself did?
Act_14:23 And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed.
Mat 4:1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
Mat 4:2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.
(NIV) Mat 4:2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.
(NASB) Mat 4:2 And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He [fn]then became hungry.
Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.(2John 1:9)
