In 2013, Hillsong were more than flippant with the idea that their “THIS IS REVIVAL” Conference needed good bible teachers and invited some extreme Word of Faith heretics (Joseph Prince, Joyce Meyer), and cult leaders (Stephen Furtick). In 2014, Hillsong’s self-promoting “NO OTHER NAME” marketing campaign resulted in them inviting more false teachers. Among them were Stephen Furtick and Christian ‘fascist’, Bill Hybels.
Marching to the beat of the Hillsong drum, are people now being brainwashed into believing that Hillsong is hearing from God? As a result, they claim to be inviting the “finest Bible teachers”. This is how Brian and Bobbie Houston are advertising next year’s Hillsong Conference.
In 1 Samuel 3:10 is says, “The LORD came and stood there, calling as at the other times, Samuel! Samuel! Then Samuel said, ‘Speak, for your servant is listening’”.
SPEAK, WE’RE LISTENING – is a declaration that we are indeed, listening.
Like Samuel, the LORD has come many times, spoken many times and (hopefully) had our response many times, but this is an eternal conversation that involves not only personal relationship, but also the wellbeing and salvation of others. In the midst of a world saturated with voices and noise, the Voice we long for is His.
We are trusting God’s Spirit to enable us to create the most perfect gathering in 2015. As always we will labor to bring the finest Bible teachers, Kingdom-inspirers and creative- innovators to the Hillsong Conference, in order that you, your family and your team are blessed. Our prayer is that the Church, local and global, will continue to rise in her full stature and that the Harvest He longs for will not be disappointed.
“Speak Lord, we’re listening” is perfect language and a perfect stance for what lies ahead. We trust you will join us – the invitation is yours.
With love and affection,
BRIAN AND BOBBIE HOUSTON
HILLSONG CONFERENCE TWENTY-FIFTEEN
Sydney. London. USA.
If Brian Houston is truly hearing from God, then why is he STILL inviting these false teachers, Joseph Prince, Jentezen Franklin, the notoriously abusive former Mars Hill leader Mark Driscoll and the Purpose-Pope, Rick Warren?
Here is an extensive list of articles that exposes the ungodly behaviour of Mark Driscoll.
You know something is wrong with Driscoll when he is invited to speak at Hillsong Conference…
And thanks to people like Rick Warren, people are starting to call Evangelicalism the ‘evanjellyfish’. Why?

Russell Moore, Rick Warren to Join ‘Pope Francis’ With Muslims, Buddhists for Interfaith Conference
ROME – Russell Moore, the president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, and Saddleback megachurch leader Rick Warren will team up with Roman Catholic Pontiff Francis later this month for an interfaith Vatican conference on marriage and family.
“Complementarity of Man and Woman,” will be held Nov. 17-19 at the Vatican, and is expected to feature more than 30 speakers from over 20 countries. According to the Catholic News Service, those of the Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu, Jaina Shasana, Taoist and Sikh religions will be present, as well as Roman Catholics and professing Christians.
The event is sponsored by the Pontifical Council for the Family, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.
“I hope that this gathering of religious leaders can stand in solidarity on the common grace, creational mandate of marriage and family as necessary for human flourishing and social good,” Moore wrote in a blog post this week entitled “Why I’m Going to the Vatican.” “I also hope that we can learn from one another about where these matters stand around the world.”
While acknowledging his doctrinal disagreements with the pope and the others in attendance, Moore stated that he is “willing to go anywhere, when asked, to bear witness to what we as evangelical Protestants believe about marriage and the gospel, especially in times in which marriage is culturally imperiled.”
Rick Warren, the author of “The Purpose Driven Life,” has spoken glowingly of Pope Francis during several public interviews about the pontiff and the Roman Catholic religion.
“[Pope Francis] is doing everything right. You see, people will listen to what we say if they like what they see,” Warren stated on Catholic television network EWTN earlier this year. “His kissing of this deformed man, his loving the children, this authenticity, this humility, the caring for the poor; this is what the whole world expects Christians to do. And when they go, ‘Oh, that’s what a Christian does.’—In fact, there was a headline here in Orange County—and I loved the headline—I saved it. It said, ‘If you love Pope Francis, you’ll love Jesus.’”

Last year, Mike Gendron of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministries called Warren’s ecumenism with the Roman Catholic Church a “real tragedy.”
“Right now, the Body of Christ doesn’t know whether to evangelize Roman Catholics or to join hands with them to go out and evangelize the world, [and] it’s because of people like Rick Warren who either don’t know how exclusive the gospel of grace is, or he’s not aware of the false and fatal gospel of the Roman Catholic religion,” Gendron stated.
In addition to Warren and Moore, the upcoming Vatican conference will feature Wael Farouq, a Muslim and president of the Tawasul Cultural Center, top-ranking Mormon Henry B. Eyring and Manmohan Singh of the World Sikh Council. Conferences will include “The Cradle of Life and Love: A Mother and Father for the World’s Children” and “The Sacramentality of Human Love According to St. John Paul II.”
The meeting follows a recent synod featuring over 200 Roman Catholic bishops who gathered in Rome for two weeks to discuss marriage and family issues, such as homosexuality, cohabitation and divorce. The initial relatio released by the synod generated controversy and concern over its inclusive tone, as it stated that “[h]omosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community.” It was later left out of the submitted draft as a consensus could not be reached on the matter.

Isaiah 9:16 “Those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray.”
“….We are trusting God’s Spirit to enable us to create the most perfect gathering in 2015.”
Compare that with what Jesus said: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+16%3A7-11&version=KJV
Notice: the Holy Spirit will reprove the world of sin, righteousness and judgement.
Brian Houston, if the Holy Spirit is going to be present at your 2015 conference does that mean this time ’round you are going to preach repentance and the forgiveness of sins for those who believe in Jesus Christ?
‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them.
Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’” (Matthew 13:27b – 30)
I could be wrong about this, but it seems to me that the “tares” may be gathering in ‘bundles’ already. Don’t be surprised at what happens next.
Thor. You have seen the instagram of brian in india?
“And what a privilege to pray and prophesy over the lives of @bijuthsmpy and family!! ”
How about that….brian is trying his hand at the ‘prophecy’ game after ALL these years, just like frank taught him to do.
@thetruth – I never knew Brian went to India – Hyper Faith people usually stay away from poor countries, as their particular brand of ‘magic’ doesn’t work outside of affluent Western society…
He knows when to switch his hyper faith hat for his social gospel hat. When you embrace and endorse conflicting religions and beliefs, you are endorsing Christians to be inconsistent with their own lives.
“As always we will labor to bring the finest Bible teachers, Kingdom-inspirers and creative- innovators to the Hillsong Conference, in order that you, your family and your team are blessed.”
Ah….so THAT’S how i get ‘blessed’…going to a hillsong event.
I wonder why NONE of the Apostles mentioned it? That must be the ‘gospel of the church of houston’.
“Creative- innovators”…..uh-oh…that can’t be good.
‘New doctrines’ and theories that are nowhere to be found in the Bible maybe? Islam..allah..the ‘gay conversation’…female ‘pastors’, no moral responsibilities if it doesn’t suit you?
“the finest Bible teachers…” How would brian know? He thought allah was the same as the Christian God!
Sarcasm alert: “Listen up people…we just made a movie and someone has to pay for it..I’m talking MILLIONS here, and I’m broke…so give with a smile..it’s all for you!”.
No, Frank houston will not be in the movie.
No, the Royal commission will not be in the movie.
No, my ‘allah’ comment won’t be in there either.
Don’t even mention paedophilia.
Biblical Christians know the Bible…and it IS NOT the one brian [ seller of doves ] houston is trying to sell.
“Creative- innovators”…. and maybe they are accompanied by “creative accountants” too …?
Not to get to off-topic, sorry CW, but..i wonder if brian is going to a very poor country and asking these poverty stricken people for a 10% tithe of their slave wages.
He HAS to..It’s a hillsong/houston obligation, otherwise nobody would HAVE to.
I think i realise why some of these countries want nothing to do with Christianity..it may seem to them to be only available at a price, or tithe.
God bless all those missionaries who go all over the earth and ask for nothing…only the chance to give them the Good News. We need more of them and less of these ‘merchandisers’ of the Word.
I am sure you all know why Houston goes to India and it is not simply wearing the “Social Gospel” hat, it is more insidious than that.
You will see that Bobbie will choose suitable photos of the poor kids to use as cover photos. They will be sanitized enough not to offend those who attend her “women’s conferences” but just vivid enough to pull at the heart strings.
Why? so the Houston’s can kick off yet another “project” so that they are seen to be doing the Social thing but all the time siphoning off their “expenses”.
Yet another disguise to make even more money for themselves and the Hill$ong franchise.
If you want to test this, then ask for an accounting of the inevitable “free will offering” that will be taken up for the poor in India.
How do I know? Because (to my shame now) I have been on the planning committees of some of these “projects” in a seeker driven “church” here in NZ closely affiliated to Hill$ong.
KiwiPirate – that’s exactly what Chris Pringle has done. Check her Instagram two weeks back. And there’s C3 satellites in India. http://instagram.com/chrisapringle
“I am sure you all know why Houston goes to India and it is not simply wearing the “Social Gospel” hat, it is more insidious than that.

That is kind of the repercussion of the social gospel. It creates fakes. Politicians. We even noticed in their marketing for next years Hillsong Conference their use of braille on their flyers. It makes them look as though they have a heart for diversity when if fact they don’t. It’s all about Brian and Bobbie.
Brian and Bobbie will happily parade themselves helping a black African child. But you wont see them parading themselves helping Frank’s victims.
This is why Jesus had such an issue with the Pharisees: there works were paraded before men but inwardly they were white-washed tomb stones. It is no wonder Jesus called these people “brood of vipers”, that is, sons of the devil. We are seeing the same unregenerate behaviour today as we are in Jesus’ day.
No gospel. No accountability. No repentance.
“We even noticed in their marketing for next years Hillsong Conference their use of braille on their flyers.”
Blind people who go to a hillsong conference get flyers with braille.
Blind people who went to hear Jesus got healed.
Of course, Jesus did it for free, whereas one must pay a pretty penny to hear the “wisdom” of Brian Houston and his heretical fellow-travellers.
Laurel Christian said:
Laurel – why are you posting your name?
Never mind that – what’s with the underlining?
Laurel has done this a few times and been moderated as ‘spam’. Thought we would let this one through and maybe elicit a response?
In their defence, what do you expect them to advertise? “We’ll be hearing from Brian Houston and bringing the finest twisters of the word of God to make some serious coin“?
How did the 2013 “Revival” go anyway, was there a big revival? Or was there no real revival because people didn’t believe hard enough or pay enough cash to Hill$ong?
