Only when men fear God, then it is the beginning of wisdom. That’s why we have seen so much foolishness being revealed in our DOS. How do we see an end to our crisis when men in white robes (priests) are still playing God?
People who played the upper hand included the commissary and the mediator. The commissary, Herbert Tong, a resigned priest, ex-Anglican was nominated by Bishop Albert Vun (BAV) to act on his behalf while he was instructed by the PHOB to go on sabbatical leave due to this entire crisis. The mediator, Moses Tay is an ex-Anglican, retired Singapore Bishop. Members were already very skeptical when these men (ex-Anglicans) were nominated by BAV and approved by the Provincial House Of Bishops (PHOB). Moses Tay not only failed his duty to the entire DOS as the mediator to protect the sheep from further attacks but he joined the flock of wolves in our DOS to kill more innocent sheep. Why? For the very simple reason, the PHOB had failed by allowing ex-Anglicans to solve our problems.
How can ex-Anglican feel the pain and effect of crisis of the existing Anglicans? Do you think they are interested in solving our crisis? They only like to be associated with popularity, power and money.
How to unite the church if the PHOB refuse to acknowledge the root cause of the entire issue arising from this very crisis? We can only conclude the PHOB are also of such standards and characteristics of wolves.
In the most recent AGM of ASC, it is confirmed that BAV, the new Dean of ASC (Chak Sen Fen), mediator and other priests had all played evil politics to disunite the church for their selfish gain. Evidenced in their most confidential emails has revealed that they were scheming ways to get rid of certain diligent people to serve in the council who could possibly object and reveal the darkest acts of these upper hand dressed in white robes.
Instead of confession and repentance, these white robers have blamed such revelation as the problems of hackers to emails. Don’t you think so? We call this revelation of God. God is certainly not pleased with these sins. When God is for us who can be against us?” Certainly, God has not for the white robers.
Is the PHOB convinced now BAV is the real devil? The severity of this crisis has gone beyond the superficial factors of merely finding an excuse to justify the cause if they are serious in solving. It is no longer about dealing with anger and unforgiveness of members. It is about dealing with a power crazy devil who wants to rule and abuse with power and money of the DOS for his selfish gain. Do you not call that robbing God?
How far had we progressed? Half-time had passed for BAV’s sabbatical leave. What had the commissary and the facilitator done to this very crisis? Are we the same between now and a year ago? Have we seen any visible positive signs of the way forward? Sorry to say the answer is NO!
Was Sabbatical leave originally intended with grace for BAV to pray and realign back to God or for him to abuse the kingdom of God more? BAV has treated this as holiday cum opportunity to earn extra side income whilst he is still getting salaries from DOS, he also gives instructions as if he is always the bishop. What difference had it make to have BAV on leave and a commissary and mediator to go through this process? Are we not watching the entire scene like “Wayang Kulit”? The independent state of mind of the commissary and the facilitator in solving this crisis is now being eminently questioned and challenged.
The PHOB had wasted our money and time. Have they not failed their duties as higher regulatory bodies of the Anglican Diocese of South East Asia and tried to be the good guys up there full of grace and love but dare not tell their own brother to stop sinning for the sack and his Church. Isn’t it they have failed their duties of PHOB? Have they not created such a mockery to the entire world who is watching us with this crisis?
We should not lose heart but stay focused unto God and as guardians to the Church of Jesus Christ. This is a spiritual battle for we are not fighting against our own flesh but forces of the darkness.
What is God’s way forward? Can a leader still lead the church when he has been alleged with so many criminal acts yet failed to justify himself with any reasonable explanations? Why is he not bold enough to explain himself? If BAV is not wrong, why is he removing people with evidence and sidelined people who spoke against his dirty acts instead, he console his own self by only promoting people who condone with his dirty and sinful deeds?
Does BAV still fit to be the leader of DOS when he has lost the respect from people? Excluding people who do not know what is going on (like those innocent Indonesian maids in the BM congregations, who only knew free transports and meals unknowingly exchanged their votes for BAV scheme), those who benefits from BAV in small or mega projects, those who rely on the DOS to feed their family, those who are in BAV’s philosophy school of ministry hoping to work in DOS one day, those trying to get into the inner circle of BAV for other gains, who else will still say BAV is an honorable man and fit to be our leader for DOS? Sorry to say there is none! Can he still fit to be a leader?
The only way forward is to see BAV to step down for the church to regain her confidence in the system that has been abused and rotted once again to be revived through Christ Jesus.
