It is students and volunteers that put on these productions. We know for a fact that drama students have difficulty taking on such roles as Judas or dark characters in Easter specials.
We can’t even begin to imagine the pressure students would have felt taking on these roles as voodooistic demon-like fiends dancing so blasphemously before their saviour’s cross.
At least this scene confirms that Hillsong still believe the NAR gospel which includes Jesus dying as a ransom for Satan, thus causing the demons to celebrate.

Hillsong Embodies the Spirit of Voodoo at 2016 Easter Special
With what seems to be a never ending stream of apostasy coming out of this organization, Hillsong just doesn’t appear to know when enough is enough. Anyone who names the name of Christ, yet doesn’t know that this is disgusting to God, needs a biblical reality check. Revelation 3 speaks of the lukewarm church, who’s given to entertainment and self-comfort. God finds this church disgusting, and will literally vomit them from his presence (Revelation 3:16).
First it was the Sleazy Silent Night performance at Christmas. Then it was the sex pervert, Austin Powers, being promoted at a women’s conference. Most recently was the Dancing Naked Cowboy appearance at a Hillsong NY location….and now we’re showing you this video of Hillsong London putting on a re-enactment of a voodoo ritual. This is pure witchcraft.

I am not surprised by this, and neither should anyone be.
The ‘gospel’ that Hillsong preaches is no gospel at all – see Ga 1:6-9 – “6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed”.
The above scripture presupposes that the audience was Christian in the first place. Given the background and history of Hillsong and its roots, I do not make that assumption.
The real Gospel, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, is not negotiable, not open to interpretation or adaptation to personal views or changing world views.
It’s high time to stop entertaining the notion that Hillsong is a Christian church that is in some stage of progressive apostasy. Hillsong is not a Christian Church, it is a pagan religious cult. This is obvious from their very public pagan worship rituals, which are becoming more flagrant, wicked and revolting.
