Singapore Church Leaders Guilty of Fraud

Six leaders of a huge Singaporean church have been convicted of fraud in a case worth S$50m ($35m; £23m).The judge ruled City Harvest Church’s pastor, Kong Hee, and others used church finances to fund the music career of his wife, Sun Ho, or falsified accounts to cover it up.The defendants had argued Ms Ho’s pop music career was a way of reaching out to non-Christians.They have been bailed until sentencing, but could face up to life in jail.

CHR Comment: One wonders how this starts. How do well intentioned Christian people go from ministry to fraud while covering it up as outreach?
