HAS HILLSONG “BECOME JUDGES WITH EVIL THOUGHTS?”
While our God shows no favouritism (Romans 2:11) and encourages Christians not to show favouritism, the god of Hillsong does. Showing unusual favouritism towards Justin Bieber lately, how has promoting Justin Beiber’s attendance at Hillsong 2015 Conference helped anyone’s Christian walk, let alone Justin’s? In light of the following article how have Hillsong helped Justin Beiber in any way shape or form? The below article informs us of the days after Justin attended the Hillsong Conference.
As well-known missionary/evangelist Paul Washer stated: “We deal five minutes with a person and their conversion and then we spend the next fifty years trying to disciple a goat into a sheep. I’m not saying this because I’m angry. I’m saying this because countless people are being deceived.” Has Justin Bieber been deceived into a false conversion?
As for showing favouritism, God says,
“My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Are not the rich the ones who oppress you, and the ones who drag you into court? Are they not the ones who blaspheme the honorable name by which you were called?
If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well. But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors.” James 2:1-9
It only goes to show that Hillsong once again refuses to acknowledge any form of biblical behaviour or governance within their own church at the expense of their followers.

Bottoms up! Justin Bieber gets VERY cheeky as he shares naked photo from a boat in Bora Bora
The cheeky 21-year-old bared his bottom as he stood with his back to the camera on the edge of a boat.
‘Look!’ he captioned the snapshot, which showed him pointing at the land ahead, although it’s fair to say none of his fans will have been admiring the scenery.
Scroll down for video
The singer is clearly feeling quite relaxed, and stared across the stunning blue sea for his raunchy naked photo.
Justin revealing pic caught the attention of one fan in particular – Miley Cyrus – who reposted the image, although she put her own creative crop on what she believed to be the most interesting part of the picture.
The 22-year-old captioned the tight pic Bieber v Rihanna, after posting a similar butt-shot of Riri snipped from her B**ch Better Have My Money video six minutes earlier.
It’s been an event filled few days documented on Justin’s instagram, which has included pictures of him boozing aboard private jets and even the bloody aftermath of a shark attack on one of his entourage.
He and pal Joe Termini were swimming near a reef when a shark bit him, taking a sizeable lump out of his chest and missing ripping his nipple off by mere millimeters.
Joe then posted a stomach-churning close-up of his open wound, captioning it ‘It’s been a good day’.
Bieber also brought his entourage, which included once-rumoured girlfriend Hailey Baldwin, to a five-day Hillsong church conference in Sydney
On Sunday he posted a photograph of himself with Joe and his spiritual adviser, Pastor Joel Houston, hanging out in front of a private jet, while he toasted the camera with a bottle of beer.

FANS SHOULD BE CONCERNED FOR JUSTIN BEIBER
If Justin Beiber is going to Hillsong Conference because he just “wants to make his heart right,” then neither Hillsong Conference 2015 nor his spiritual advisors give him such an opportunity. This is because Hillsong is not a church but a movement that preaches anything but the Christian gospel.
The fact that Justin Beiber was proud to state that “Lentz had changed his life” is very concerning indeed. Most Christians who go to church will claim that Jesus saved them and turned their lives around. We are continually seeing the rise of the personality cult in Hillsong.
The Daily Telegraph reports,
Justin Bieber just ‘wants to make his heart right’ says Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz
JUSTIN Bieber revealed his renewed religious fervour yesterday, declaring at Sydney’s Hillsong conference: “I was blind but now I see.”
The pop megastar came to Australia to be part of the congregation and not to preach but, as well as quoting the lines from John 9:25, Bieber spoke to #hillsong-backstage, telling its online audience: “I love you guys. Jesus loves you.”
Speaking at the Hillsong Sydney Conference the pastor, who counts stars like Bono, Vanessa Hudgens and Stephen Baldwin among his church members, described his relationship with Bieber as like “regular friends who talk all the time”.
“We met when Justin was 14 after his mum reached out and we’ve become close from that day. He’s a part of our lives and has lived with us for weeks on end,” Lentz, 36, said.
Lentz, whose met his Australian wife in Sydney, said it was amazing Bieber was so “kind and normal”.
“I can’t even explain the suffocating nature of the kind of fame that he has. If he’s going through something horrible, we’ll talk about it. If he makes a decision where I think he could have done something wiser, we’ll talk about it,” he said.
Lentz was adamant his 21-year-old pal was on the right path: “He flew halfway round the world at the busiest time of the year for him just for a church conference. It shows you what matters to him.”
Sydney Olympic Park is not known as a rock star hangout but Bieber has made the five-star Pullman hotel at Homebush his low-key base for his low-key visit, next to the Allphones Arena where the conference has attracted delegates from around the world at $350 each.
Hillsong founder Brian Houston told the congregation that it left a $1.3 million shortfall in the cost and prayed for people to be generous and donate. The church he set up in Sydney 30 years ago is now bigger in the US than Australia.
Bieber yesterday told #hillsongbackstage that Lentz had changed his life and, while this was his first Hillsong conference, it would not be his last: “I’m having a great time. It’s pretty awesome.
“The music is incredible. What they are doing is incredible, I support it 100 per cent.”
