City Harvest and Prosperity Gospel
From my own reading of many articles written about CHC it appears that many people alleged that it is preaching the prosperity gospel or what people called "health and wealth" gospel.  Indeed, the Bible does teach us about God's blessings in terms of wealth and health, but it also taught many other things.  Prosperity Gospel preachers tend to emphasize very much more on getting rich in this world if you are a Christian.

Quoting Tamesek Times says about CHC, "
"The Pastor preaches Prosperity Gospel which resolves around money. His business genius lies in choosing this theme for his church. Money has universal appeal. Everyone worships money regardless of race, culture, age, gender, sexual orientation. In one fell swoop, he has enlarged his market to cover the entire world. It is much easier to convert people to your belief by dangling money and promising great prosperity. After all, who does not love money?
By enlarging his potential market catchment with a greater chance of increasing membership, more donations will flow in."

Tamasek Times gives a very detail study of CHC, you can read at the link above.
