BRIAN “JUDGE NOT LEST YE BE JUDGED” HOUSTON
It is not uncommon to see Brian Houston to “cast the first stone” at Christians or nonbelievers who question him. Brian Houston for a long time has hated anyone who questions him or the way his movement operates.
Here is “authentic,” “real,” and “honest” Brian Houston internationally disgracing the Australian ‘A Current Affairs’ program. This was also streamed internationally.
“Can I have your attention for a moment before anyone moves.
Firstly, that was a great, great session. And practical. And we love pastor Rick. Uh-
Second thing is, obviously young people are about to go off to ‘Young & Free’. Now [crowd applauses] just a word for the young people. And I want you to listen to me. Out in the forecult- court right now is an Australian program called A Current Affair. They are a malicious program. They have a constant agenda against Hillsong. They lie. They’re underhanded. And they’re asking young people questions. And I want to encourage every young person here not to answer them. Not to talk to them. [Crowd applauses] And certainly don’t talk about things – haha – certainly don’t talk about things that you know nothing about. Alright?”
And as for who is here and who isn’t there, it’s not for you to tell.”

These below articles are other clear examples of Brian Houston’s unhealthy hatred to anyone who questions him. Don’t forget that even yesterday in his interview with Rick Warren, both Warren and Houston dared to depict their critics as liars and murderers and themselves as sinless Messiah-like figures before Pontious Pilate. This is not an uncommon tactic as we have also seen C3 Church and City Harvest Church use similar propaganda-like tactics.
Exclusive – Brian Houston: “I got attacked by a protester”
BREAKING NEWS: Brian Houston & Mark Driscoll interview at Hillsong Conference 2015
Brian Houston calls Christian pastors “intellectual pride-filled Pharisees” & “evil people”
Hey hill$ongers if Brian tells you to “drink the coolaid” DONT! Wake Up and think for yourselves.
Yeah I should remind people don’t go to Hill$ong because it make us so stupidity, wasting time, losing knowledges, all caused by false teachings, I swear to god for all honestly words. They should find any comfortable churches for best regards.
Petitioning Channel Nine – Cancel A Current Affair!
A Current Affair has been running about 40 years, I don’t think we gonna cancel it. NRL sports still needs it for TV recording by Grand Final. If we really cancel A Current Affair but I am still waiting for it, sorry bro.
Is there a petition for Today Tonight as well? 🙂
Typical fearful and cowardly response from someone who is GUILTY .. if you are the real deal Brian.. Why hide? Why order the youth you are brain washing to not speak to the news? Maybe because they might unknowingly tell the TRUTH? Imagine Jesus or Paul telling the early church.. ” dont talk to anyone who asks questions about us!!”
” These days, while he still finds the guilty-before-innocent approach of many journalists disappointing, he has learnt to roll with the punches.
“At first when we started getting criticism, the unfairness of a lot of it and the fear of what might happen – (will people still come to church?) – was very real,” he said.
“These days, a lot of it’s water off a duck’s back. I’ve got better at not allowing it to rule my spirit.” ‘
I think A Current Affair TV program is really good, people should watch it on Channel 9!
Why Brian is so negative?
And why Hillsong spammed me many times in my phone?
So no excuses?
Alright what I gonna say about ‘positive’ but should we really know about Hillsong ‘where is your all money?’ Remember we’re good attitude, polite, pressured and other goods.
If I am a young man at conference I will say to him ‘I don’t understand what are you talking about Brian’, so who cares, don’t disgrace us!
Truth & love said:
I can fully understand why Brian Houston warns against engaging with the media: those with negative preconceptions & sinister motives are adept at editing & distorting whatever is said (just like this site does). This weeks Hillsong conference had excellent & inspiring bible & grace based teachers.
Truth & love said:
Following from previous comment … It’s sad that despite all of the great encouraging, bible / grace based teaching, some have chosen to focus on, & distort, the context of one short pre-recorded interview. Also to attribute a recommendation to not engage with media (due to likely editing & distorting) to sinister motives.
“It’s sad that despite all of the great encouraging, bible / grace based teaching, some have chosen to focus on, & distort, the context of one short pre-recorded interview.”
The issue is ‘Truth & Love’ is that Brian Houston unlovingly LIED to the Christian community around the world, his church and to international media networks about Mark Driscoll not speaking at Hillsong Church.
We alerted people to the fact the Brian Houston was being dishonest with his media statement but we did not think that he would be this duplicit in pulling of such a foul stunt.
This dishonest ploy was definitely going to have repurcussions. Don’t tell us that Brian Houston did not think this deplorable act was going to send the media on his case. Now it’s going to be a media battle to the end of this week because of his international lies.
Christians and the media have every reason to scrutinise a paid “minister” for acting so badly. This is such a bad witness to Christianity (not that people in Australia think that Hillsong do represent Christianity).
“The issue is ‘Truth & Love’ is that Brian Houston unlovingly LIED to the Christian community around the world, his church and to international media networks about Mark Driscoll not speaking at Hillsong Church.”
This is one of the biggest problems for anyone who CHOOSES to belong to any cult, such as the HS cult.
HS cult members do not know, nor care, what other lies Brian Houston has been spewing out of his mouth via False Teachings, Outright Lies, etc etc.
You continue to belong to his ‘church’, you’ll get more lies. It’s called a “pattern.” Once a liar, always a liar. No big surprise.
“great encouraging, bible / grace based teaching, some have chosen to focus on, & distort, the context of one short pre-recorded interview”
‘Truth & love’, you like getting your ears tickled waaaayyy too much.
If those “negative preconceptions and sinister motives” are proved to be true will you still *choose* to ignore the truth?
“those with negative preconceptions & sinister motives are adept at editing & distorting whatever is said (just like this site does).”
That’s funny. We let Brian Houston speak for himself on our site. Are you suggesting that Brian Houston teaches things contrary to Brian Houston? Do you think maybe this is why he says no one understands him and his movement?
Instead of accusing ACA of not telling the truth, try teaching the Biblical truth for a change Hillsong.
Brian Houston and Co. are false Apostate teachers who the Apostle Paul warns us about, prior to the return of Jesus Christ.
I am a BIBLE believing follower of Jesus Christ,True believers of Christ will know the truth from His word,
What you see at Hillsong is NOT Christianity, it is a false Pseudo cult based on money to feather the top’s nest.
Even non Christians can see Hillsong are crooks..
If a pastor doesn’t preach the bible verse by verse chapter by chapter he is not teaching the bible when they read a verse and then go off on their own understanding their teaching what they believe that is why it is up up to each individual to study for theirself’s
Houston telling followers RE critics “THEY lie, THEY’RE underhanded” is what psychologists call PROJECTION. Did Houston’s *critics* say “no Driscoll interview at conference” to media, or did Brian Houston?
Many interesting websites about “spiritual” narcissists e.g http://www.lifeissues.net/writers/mcm/mcm_25narcissism1.html
Read link “narcissists and religion”.
“They lie. They’re underhanded.”
Brian C H must be describing himself. Hypocrite.
“And certainly don’t talk about things – haha – certainly don’t talk about things that you know nothing about. Alright?”
Brian C H talks about things he knows nothing of all the time. Again hypocrite.
Taking over churches secretly behind doors without allowing their members a public vote first is underhanded. Hypocrite.
Is this a Christian website? If so, why on earth then, are you guys so set on slamming other believers? They preach Jesus and him crucified as commanded in the Bible. They love on people, have stood behind those in need, and alongside those who are suffering.
Are you perfect? What gives you the right to judge and cast stones? This website is divisive and unbiblical. Dragging other believers down is NOT what Jesus said to do. The world will know us by our LOVE one for another, not by hate-filled, bagging each other out.
I have some beautiful, godly friends who love Jesus with all their hearts, and have done for years & have been part of Hillsong for years. You are on dangerous ground to suggest that all Hillsong is a cult. What happened to unity in the body, unconditional love and all that? Please, lets focus on unity and working together to see people saved and going to heaven.
“lets focus on unity and working together to see people saved and going to heaven.”
ppl wont be going to heaven if they believe the Bible and the Gospel are about “you being successful & living your best life now & dancing around in a big dark emotion-charged room saves anyone”..
“You are on dangerous ground to suggest that all Hillsong is a cult.”
there are some wheat scattered among the tares. that does not set an imaginary standard that wheat should follow tares or act like tares. the Bible sets the rules, and the rules do not say that is ok.
“What happened to unity in the body, unconditional love and all that?”
huh, all what? TRUE unity revolves around true doctrine, thats what separates we Christians as a group, that is what set us apart from everyone else, and without it we could not exist. FALSE unity is what youre suggesting, that is not biblical at all. it is based on ‘niceness’ and feelings ruling over Scripture. we are not supposed to unite with the pope or islam or unruly men for the sake of ‘niceness’. FALSE unity is NOT ok’d in Scripture..
“Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.” (1 tom 4:16)
“But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who CLAIMS to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or GREEDY, an IDOLATOR or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.” (1 cor 5:11)
“If anyone does not obey our instruction in this letter, take special note of that person and do not associate with him, so that he will be put to shame.” (2 thess 3:14)
“This website is divisive and unbiblical. ”
no, it is your comment out of ignorance that was completely unbiblical & emotional.
we are not supposed to unite with the pope or islam or unruly men for the sake of ‘niceness’.
should have read..
we are not supposed to unite with the pope or islam or unruly men >>OR THE WORLD<< for the sake of ‘niceness’.
You sound like you have genuinely good intentions. However you also need to remember that the bible clearly states that those who do not preach the true Gospel are condemned.
Galatians 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Was the apostle Paul being divisive? Yes, he was. People who add/subtract/ distort the Gospel are condemned according to the BIBLE. Does Hillsong preach the FULL Gospel according the BIBLE? No it does not.
Matthew 7:13 [Jesus said “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
Houston actually dared to clearly contradict Jesus Himself. See https://hillsongchurchwatch.com/2015/04/07/brian-houston-insisting-christians-take-the-wide-road/
Therefore people like yourself on this issue must realise you are at a crossroads when shown that Hillsong teaches an extreme “easy believism” version of Christianity.
You must decide if you are going to take the narrow and difficult path of Truth, or you remain on the wide and easy path of “peace and tolerance” that Hillsong proclaims. You and others like yourself will be accountable to God for your decision.
I saw a segment on hillsong where Brain Houston said that we all worship the same God we just call him different names
@ Anne – oh dear Anne, you must really have your ‘rose coloured (3D) glasses’ on. Hillsong has long since departed from the paths of their Pentecostal forebears, and has left the narrow way which Jesus spoke about (Matt 7:13+) and have chosen a broad and worldly way, which it has misled many people around the world into following.
Big auditoriums and bright lights do not a Christian church make. It is the foundation of the apostles and prophets, which is laid using Jesus as the chief corner stone, that begins a church fellowships- not ‘dating and mating’ (networking) or gimmicks that draw a large crowd and then proceed to fleece them of their hard earned money. ACA is acting in the public’s best interest in questioning the highly questionable antics of the Houstons and their entourage – who are they that they cannot be questioned?
It is usually cult leaders that hate the kinds of questions that ACA feels obliged to ask. An honest minister of the Gospel has nothing to hide (in neither money matters nor lifestyle,) as Paul teaches that an elder must be “above reproach” and it is now coming out in the Royal Commission that Brian Houston did not report his father’s acts of pedophilia to the right authorities – and that disqualifies him from the ministry, according to the scriptures:
“2 An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,
3 not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money.
4 He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity
5 (but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?),
6 and not a new convert, so that he will not become conceited and fall into the condemnation incurred by the devil.
7 And he must have a good reputation with those outside the church, so that he will not fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.” 1 Timothy 3:2 – 7
Honestly Anne, I think you need to move back a step or two from Hillsong, and just have a good, hard long look at what Brian and Bobbie Houston have built in the last 30 odd years. It is not a New Testament church by any means, and its many unbiblical practices and “Anthony Robbins” motivational feel about it, places it in the category of unorthodox, to say the least. Heterodox groups invariably become cultish when they gather a large crowd, and then seek to control the crowd for the benefit of the ‘inner circle’ leadership. How else could they afford beach-side mansions and super duper motor bikes???
You plead with people about ‘unity and love’, two major themes of the Charismatic movement from a bygone era, whereby when they are employed, they only end up in compromise and a false sense of unity. I know as I lived through some of that false unity back in the 1970’s and 80’s and it did not lead to “Christians loving each other” at all. Christian love is self sacrificial and cannot be compared to sloppy human emotions at all.
It lead to people becoming despondent and in some cases, disillusionment set in, with many losing hope. Meanwhile, the false prophets of that era (some of whom are still around today,) made their money through books, tapes and videos and many many ‘conferences’.
Sound familiar Anne? It ought to, as the same methodologies used back then are still used today, except they are now ‘online’ as downloads or are available via social media as live feed updates and comments, as well as events like “Hillsong 2015”
The end result is still massive deception… God will not be mocked and His Word will last forever.
It is only because Brian has taken the easier step and broadcast Rick Warrens’ “purpose” which is pure law (and so cultish?) instead of God’s which is of grace.
the truth is that anyone who is serious about being a Christian by living and following jesus, hearing gods voice and taking guidance and direction from the holy spirit would not go to a church like hillsong.
anyone with common sense can see, hillsong are preaching another jesus another spirit. hillsong are preaching and watered down and diluted gospel.
there is no place in hillsong for a Christian who wants to deny themselves pick up their cross for jesus.
July 2 episode includes “Brian Houston Pulls a Fast One and Interviews Driscoll for Hillsong Conference”; starts approx. 42 min.
BH: ” And they’re asking young people questions. And I want to encourage every young person here not to answer them. Not to talk to them.”
What a strange thing to say. I don’t think Jesus Christ gave this kind of ‘ advice’ to His Apostles before preaching the Holy Word.
Brian just gets more paranoid as time goes on.
