The National Council of Churches hopes/Singaporeans will not react against churches
The National Council of Churches of Singapore has issued a statement on the arrest of five senior members of the City Harvest Church.
Its President, Bishop Terry Kee, said members of the Christian community are united in disapproving any misuse of public or institutional funds, including money raised by or given to churches.
Bishop Kee said dishonesty in financial matters is contrary to the teaching of the church.
As this is now before the court, he added that it's important that speculation or pre- judgement into this matter be avoided and the legal process allowed to take its course.
Bishop Kee also sought the understanding of fellow Singaporeans not to react against the church or churches in Singapore.
He said he appreciated the clarification by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Home Affair Teo Chee Hean that the charges filed are against the five individuals and not against City Harvest Church itself.
