City Harvest Church: are they waging a war of copyright on whistle blower's YouTube accounts?
YouTube user 'Kong Hee' has since even silenced the whistle blower 'goh05dan' who was critical of Pastor Kong Hee's theology, especially that he espoused and as excerpted in the YouTube video titled 'Kong Hee 30,60 100 fold return'.
The said video questioned Pastor Kong's theology in his confusion of '30,60 100 fold return' as quoted in both Matthew 13:8 and Matthew 13:23 with financial returns as consequence of participation in certain Church related activities.
Specifically, the return refers NOT to fiduciary returns but to gains in a spiritual sense, applicable to both Christianity as well as the follower whether in this life or the next- Pastor Kong Hee's depreciating use of Singapore currency notes and his gift of fungible currency to teach this point was both despicable and offensive and liable to mislead his followers into believing that the membership of the said Church might reap monetary gains- the expense of approx S$200 as 'prize money' to the recipient also reeks of 'baiting'- a sales tactic many dishonest salesmen use to entice unwitting customers to invest in ponzi/ other fraudulent investment schemes.
The translated text of the two verses are excerpted as follows:
Matthew 13:8: "Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown." Matthew 13:23: "But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.""
In conclusion, I'm unsure to what extent 'goh05dan''s "multiple third-party notifications of copyright infringement" although all the protesters named seem to be 'Kong Hee'- perhaps some clarification as to the purpose of those excerpts could be made as it is surely in the spirit of progressive free speech for there to be an open discussion about the theology that preaches of various religions preach.
Youtube got a lot of weird stuff.
seriously.... but who give a damn about it....
