People were asked to join AWARE to “to be an agent of change for lord”. How secular is the new exco is anyone’s guess, after reading this emails

But for him to be paid $500k.. that is a really staggering amount. It is beyond the amount for one to enjoy a decent, modest, middle-income lifestyle. It disturbs me that what NCC had raised in less than 24 hours is probably even more than the GDP of some countries. Should the church board lavish upon a servant of God a truly Prince-ly pay cheque?

"The accusations made by Amutha Valli Krishnan against Novena Church look to be disproven in court, as the defense presents a shocking video of her 'real' behaviour - The questions have now been raised as to if she been faking her psychiatric symptoms and perhaps she is not really physically frail as she had portrayed herself to be?"
"The video footage was filmed by a private investigator, and even showed her working out in a gym on a stepper exercise machine. "

Firstly, the language used does not include the word "homosexuality", let alone "homosexual orientation". Instead it deploys spin, speaking of "homosexual lifestyle", thus suggesting that homosexual orientation is not integral to a person and reversible, much like other lifestyle matters, e.g. consuming too much transfat or wearing tinted contact lenses. I'm sure I don't have to repeat that such a view flies in the face of scientific consensus today. This deliberate framing of the issue in such scientifically unsupported terms immediately renders the integrity of the statement-makers -- church leaders donning the cloak of moral guides -- suspect.

I went to City Harvest Church last Sunday to try to save a friend's soul. I have since found that at least 2 other people I know go there, but I have mixed feelings about attempting to save theirs.
Now, I'd read accounts (example) of the place before, but visiting it and experiencing it firsthand was an enlightening experience, both of the slickness of megachurches and the Gospel of Prosperity they preached.
