According to the media at a Hillsong press Conference, Brian Houston “has never believed in a “prosperity gospel””.
Brian Houston might like to consider getting in touch with his good friends Joel and Victoria Osteen (who often speak at Brian’s Hillsong Conferences). Recently, Victoria Osteen dropped this wonderful prosperity gospel pearly-whirly:
“I just want to encourage every one of us to realize that when we obey God, we’re not doing it for God. I mean that’s one way to look at it- we’re doing it for ourselves. Because God takes pleasure when we’re happy. That’s the thing that gives him the greatest joy this morning.
So I want you to know this morning, Just do good for your own self. Do good because God wants you to be happy. When you come to Church, when you worship him- You’re not doing it for God, really, you’re doing it for yourself, because that’s what makes God happy. Amen? Let’s open our hearts to him today.“
