Dear Church Family,
We would like to bring your attention to several reports in online websites claiming that the bottles of anointing oil that were given out at last weekend’s service (11-12 March) are for sale.
As all of you members would know, CHC gives out anointing oil to its cell group leaders and members for the purpose of anointing those who need healing and deliverance, during prayer.
As Pastor Kong Hee preached from Mark 6:12-13 during service last weekend, Jesus asked the disciples to anoint the sick with anointing oil, when He sent them out. Just as the disciples did, so must we do.
Anointing oil has never been sold at City Harvest Church. You may have read that a seller on Carousell claims he has received instruction from Pastor Kong to get buyers to “tithe” 10 percent to their cell group leaders and 15 percent to him. This is completely untrue and Carousell has been alerted to this scam.
Likewise, the reports in Yahoo!, All Singapore Stuff and Mothership.sg claim that church is selling this anointing oil but this is not so. If they had called CHC office to check their facts, we would have told them the truth, but they didn’t.
We know it is hurtful that the public mocks our religious beliefs. But let’s not be distracted—instead let’s be ready to explain to those who don’t understand, why the anointing breaks every yoke. Let’s continue to reach out and bring the message of Jesus Christ to the lost.
Once again, thank you for standing with the church. If you do need a bottle of anointing oil to pray for your friends and family, do email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is absolutely free.
