This week’s Sunday message by Brian Houston had no gospel. This message was damage control. The message was intentionally designed to manipulate people for his sake. In this message Brian Houston lied in his sermon and had deliberately twisted scriptures to arm his followers to silence people who dared question Hillsong and their leaders. (We will be covering his lies and twisted scripture in later articles.)
In connection with this, our authentic and transparent Brian Houston recently tweeted propaganda that promoted his fraudulent Sunday Message.
Sin pays us wages for what we deserve but grace gives the “gift of righteousness” which is totally undeserved. #freedomfromshame

Someone by the name of Raymond Mizzi challenged Brian Houston with questions about the cover up. What was Brian Houston’s response?
@raymondmizzi You make assumptions and judgments on things you know nothing about. Self righteousness is ugly bro.
Typical of Brian Houston, he has now deleted his comment.
If anything – the way Brian and Hillsong have responded to the Royal Commission and to the general public have left no doubt in our mind that they are a dangerous cult. If you are concerned with our opinion being too strong, look at the other comments in the screen grab that attacked Raymond Mizzi. Those comments should concern both the general public and Christians around the world.
Hillsong’s prophet Brian Houston needs to step down before this movement gets even more dangerous and out of control.
Brian is making quite a * negative* habit of posting, and then deleting his comments..very confusing. After reading the transcripts of the Royal Commission..I am in no doubt that the man refuses to be ‘questioned’ by mere mortals.
What disappointed me was the uncertainty and confusion brian had, whether Hillsong had tried to pay someone off at Redfern station, McDonalds or a Park. How long has the ‘Black Bag’ of cash been going on? Seems to be since the very early days.
But, I am so glad that brian had the presence of mind, during a grilling of a long, sad history of Christian betrayal by his father ..to mention that Nabi Saleh of Gloria Jeans [ who ‘delivered’ the hush money ] …was ‘a sophisticated man’. Really…?
In the middle of the worst family record of moral failure..you would find time to do that? I have no words.
Brian acknowledges NO moral or financial responsibility for his father’s actions, and victims. Again, I have no words.
As for his comment in the above story that “self-righteousness is ugly bro” …I agree Brian….oh, how I agree.
“Brian is making quite a * negative* habit of posting, and then deleting his comments..”
true. notice a pattern. not only do these guys ‘re-frame’ / delete comments on social media. they also block, censor & post-edit videos to the public. (reminds you of mars hill deleting part of mark driscoll’s video where he said “Jesus made mistakes”.)
“I am in no doubt that the man refuses to be ‘questioned’ by mere mortals.”
true again. similarly once someone wiggles into leadership of a false movement (cult) like c3 / chc / hillsong / planetshakers / !audacious / ihop-kc / etc.. any brainwashed highly-indoctrinated cult members who wont think for themselves REFUSE TO DO any questioning as well.
whatever their leaders say or prophecy becomes the next buzzphrase from God, a new understanding or interpretation of Scripture, or a bigger vision for their ‘church’. (reminds you of PP giving sham prophecies over KH.)
instead of “prophecying” maybe it should be called “prophelying”.
there was a standard in the o.t. for prophets & prophecy, regardless of whether it DIDN’T and even if it DID come to pass.
if it DIDN’T, the consequences on the prophet were severe.
even if it DID, they were to never to allow themselves to be led into idolatry.
20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken?
22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, IF THE THING FOLLOW NOT, NOR COME TO PASS, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. (deut 18:20-22)
1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder COME TO PASS, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
4 Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. (deut 13:1-4)
“He refuses to be questioned by mere mortals.”
The Royal Commission helped us get more details and facts about Hillsong, Brian, Frank and others.
At the Commission he didn’t refuse the questions, but, his replies were not convincing.
If your father is a pedophile and you are organising the payment of $10000 by mail you would know where the money was coming from. But Brian was not sure at first !!!
Brian does answer questions however he puts his own spin on the answer.
I still want to know for how long he knew his father was sexually immoral.
Some are saying he knew long ago from when he was a teenager.
His sister heard rumours he said.
Lets not loose focus on the fact he still takes scripture out of context and preaches another gospel and is saying compromising things about unity with catholics,muslims homosexuals etc.
Worst of all , how many is he leading away from genuine salvation and how many are deceived under his teaching.
The darkest place in hell is reserved for false teachers.
Many years ago, I was in a situation, interstate, where I had been forced out of a local church because of the leadership and their lies. It came to the notice of the regional Superintendent (too long a story to tell here) and within three months, a crooked pastor and his “yes man” elder had been publicly removed from the ministry for all time.
The ‘pastor’ was caught out for sending some of the churches’ offering money to a known false prophet in another state (without us knowing about that at all) the wicked ‘elder’ had been asked to leave two other churches before for misconduct (but the pastor knew “nothing” about it?) and was banned from ever attending another church of that denomination again.
I was restored to that church (even though the crooked leaders had threatened all manner of vile things – lawsuits, denounced publicly from the pulpit, excommunication, etcetera). God turned the tables on the wicked, while I was off the scene!
Small biccies compared to the revelations of the Royal Commission, but the Lord is just as able to “out” all of the wrongdoers in this situation, like He was in mine, way back in the mid 1990’s.
False prophets think that they can manufacture the perfect smoke screen, wherein they attempt to ‘fool all of the people, all of the time’ – something which is impossible to do, as sooner or later, something will poke through and cause people to ask awkward questions – something which cannot then be hidden any more.
A wise man said to me back in that situation in 1996, “Austin, all you have to do is pull one significant thread, and the whole fabric of deception will unravel” and how right he was.
The fact that the pastor was a drunkard and a tax avoider, as well as the crooked elder having run lewd entertainment in the old boxing ring on the southern side of the town, disqualified both of them from any kind of credible ministry role – and that didn’t include their ungodly antics inside the local church over a 2 year period…
Perhaps this Royal Commission may well provide the ‘thread’ for someone to pull at the right time and this ‘cult that poses as a church’ will come undone, and those within its ranks that are truly seeking for God, (but have been misled,) will find a genuine spiritual home where they can grow, and leave behind them the guilt and stigma of “Hillsong” – it’s just not good enough to say “I’ve still got friends and family involved” – that’s an excuse. The Bible is clear:
“”And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”
After all the dodgy dealings, denials and spin from Hillsong last week at the Royal Commission, who would want to stay any longer within its ranks – who could justify the cover up mounted by the ACC/Hillsong executive some 12 years ago – literally lying to an entire denomination – thousands of people, for all that time?

I commented on this picture yesterday as well. I replied to someone saying Brian was one of the best pastors in the world and that the person in this post should heard what the Lord has to say (through brian). Absolutely ridiculous. I noted in my comment to not look upon famous pastors (using the term pastors lightly when referring to Brian) and put their faith in them, but to put their faith in God. And Brian actually deleted my comment.
Well done Daniel. The Holy Bible is the ONLY way.
