Hillsong: The multi-million dollar “crazy cult”

Share

Hillsong ChurchOur friends over at Churchtwatch Central (CC) have Australia’s “A Current Affair” report on Hillsong Church (HC). For those unfamiliar with HC, it’s a Pentecostal megachurch out of Australia. HC’s well-recognized music ministry has spread all throughout the globe.   Brian and Bobbie Houston  are the “Senior Pastors” and co-presidents of HILC. According to Erin Benziger of Do Not Be Surprised:

One does not have to look far or listen too intently to hear the espousing of Word-Faith doctrine coming from the platforms of Hillsong Church and its international campuses. Hillsong Churchin Australia, led by senior pastors Brian … and Bobbie Houston, is:

perhaps best known for its popular worship music, regularly features the major properity preachers of the Word Faith movement at their annual heresy-fests such as Joyce Meyer, Joel and Victoria Osteen, along with Jentezen Franklin numerous times, and Oneness Pentecostal Word Faith mogul T.D. Jakes. (Online Source) (Links by Erin)
 We’ve provided a bit of background on HC, now to the CC piece.

Tonight (the 21st of April, 2015), Australia’s ‘A Current Affair’ aired this report on Hillsong.

In spite of Hillsong’s continual lies, their facades of “relevancy” and their contemporary nonsensical gimmicks, the world still sees through it. The reality is this: the world is not being won over to Jesus Christ. In fact, Hillsong is giving the world an excuse to hate Christianity while Hillsong is militantly campaigning against biblical Christianity. Not only that, Hillsong is stealing Christians from other churches and taking over churches by force under the guise of “blessing” churches. It is time the media, the Australian Government and more importantly church leaders, stop calling Hillsong a church. Cults have always declared war on Christianity. Hillsong for decades have proven again and again to be a word of faith and prosperity cult. When will Christianity finally say enough is enough?

    So the difference between Hillsong and 99.999% of churches world wide is what? The catholics have been bilking their followers for centuries, protestants do the same by demanding a “tithe” and more from their followers when no where to be found is the command to collect a tithe from the Church, the Bride of Christ. The “word/faith” folks have jumped on the bandwagon from simple greed and the gullible people that they lie to. Here’s a good “rule of thumb” to go by: if your “church” demands a tithe and/or is constantly seeking your money for any purpose then they are liars, false prophets and teachers, etc., etc. So why do you still throw away your money to those who hate the God that they claim to love? And why do you let them have it?

    There’s no getting around it. Christendom has been corrupted by man throughout the centuries. As you know, tithing is an Old Testament concept. We are no longer under the law, we are under grace, so we are not expected to tithe 10% to the Church. However, God’s people are to give generously to help others. So if we feel led to support the church we attend, then we are free to do so if we wish. But whatever we give should be done with an attitude of worship. My husband and I look at the church we attend as our home. So we help with the upkeep because God has given us the resources to do that.

    Grace & peace,
    Marsha

      No problem with your thoughts, Marsha. To “feel led” to do so is quite different from those who constantly harp on their “flock” to “give ’til it hurts” or the attitude of the current SBC president, Ronnie Floyd, where not paying (“paying”, not “giving”) your tithe is almost a criminal offense. These are the ones to whom I refer. I thought that was clear on the first try. Hope this clears things up. There is much more to this, but enough for now.

    The main gripe in the video is that Hillsong is taxfree. The assumption is that the government is entitled to a hefty portion of everyone’s money. Is everyone really blind to all this governmental greed. So, religious institutions are not taxed and this makes people upset, causing them to cry, “unfair!” Meanwhile, a gluttonous, overburdening, intrusive, wasteful government is given a pass (with a little tear flowing down their cheek) — over money they didn’t get to squander.

    The real story should be about citizen’s wealth confiscated and misappropriated by those who think they can spend it better than those from whom it was taken. Whose money is it anyway?
