This the third article in a series reviewing Brian Houston’s latest book ‘Live Love Lead’.
On page 91 of ‘Live Love Lead’ Brian Houston writes:
“…When my father passed away in 2004, I grieved for the dad I had known growing up: the loving man who was my hero and role model; the brilliant preacher and evangelist, the man who gathered crowds and had them screaming hilariously with laughter one moment and weeping the next, as he told incredible stories of faith. And I struggled to come to terms with the man I knew, the one who harboured dark struggles himself and committed acts I could never had imagined. This too kept the pain alive in my body and in my heart”.
There is a lot in this statement of Brian Houston’s- the son of an extremely evil lifelong child rapist- Frank Houston the founder of Hillsong Church- who deliberately set out around the age of 20 to use the Christian ministry as a foil and disguise to breach the natural defences of innocent trusting and believing New Zealand Christian families so he could access their little boys for his own sexual gratification.
The pedophile Frank Houston accessed Christian families little boys, using the foil and disguise of a Christian pastor
A New Zealander, the pedophile Frank Houston accessed Christian families little boys, using the foil and disguise of a Christian pastor, all over New Zealand, Australia and the world.
Wherever the evil scheming pedophile Frank Houston travelled using the disguise of a Christian pastor, he groomed, schemed, planned, abused, threatened, controlled and discarded little boys who were his meat and his pleasure.
In the following decades after the pedophile Frank Houston’s first posting as a Salvation Army officer he accessed Christian families little boys in this way all over New Zealand, Australia and all over the world.
I have evidence of Frank Houston committing heinous crimes of child abuse in Lower Hutt, Wellington and Auckland, New Zealand, and in Australia- in Sydney and in South Australia.
I have evidence of Frank Houston committing heinous crimes of child abuse in Wellington (boy victim WNZ1 aged 8) and Lower Hutt in New Zealand (6 Lower Hutt 10 year old boys and 15 year old Peter Fowler), in Auckland, New Zealand (teen victim ANZ1 who later suicided due to Frank Houston’s sexual abuse of him), in Sydney (boy victim AHA aged 7) and South Australia (boy victim SA1 and three other boys aged 11).
This is the mere tip of the iceberg.
The evil pedophile Frank Houston told his son Brian “I was very active as a pedophile in the 1960s and 1970s”.
The evil pedophile Frank Houston told his son Brian after he confessed “I was very active as a pedophile in the 1960s and 1970s”.
The average pedophile sexually abuses 250 children in their lifetime.
By deduction if Frank Houston was ‘very active’ as a pedophile then hundreds of boy and young teen victims are probable. Possibly over four hundred.
So this is Brian’s dad- “the loving man who was my hero and role model; the brilliant preacher and evangelist”

If you google the titles you’ll find them.

Brian still hasn’t understood his evil father
As Brian wrote on page 9 of ‘Live Love Lead’ “I was not a great student and easily distracted”.
Then Brian goes on to share about how he was “only a window cleaner” before he became The Great Brian Houston of Hillsong Church.
Brian isn’t as dumbed up as he makes out.
Behind the lazy docile snake-like eyes of every male Houston- Frank-Brian-Joel and Ben is a cunning crafty street-wise errant Houston wolf looking out for their own interests and the interests of their hunting pack- their kith and kin.
The evil pedophile Frank Houston the founder of Hillsong Church’s children- Beverly (Houston), Maureen (Bradshaw), Graeme (Houston), Brian (Houston) and Judith (McGee) still can’t see how evil their father was
Beverly Houston, Brian’s older sister has commented on this site two years ago after the Royal Commission.
As did her sister Maureen Bradshaw, who was once married to Ian Carlisle, who was Frank Houston’s right hand man in the early 1980s before their marriage fell apart and then Frank Houston severely savaged the broken Ian.
These Houston ladies can’t see how evil their father was either. They slam their critics and even curse them.
Here is an article about the Houston sister’s comments:
‘Pastor Frank Houston. Founder of Hillsong. Pedophile. Part 19. Pastor Brian Houston’s sisters have their say on this blog site’ published on 1 June 2015.
Google this title and you’ll find the article.
Never get on the wrong side of a Houston.
Eric Hansen, Pastor Ian Carlisle, Pastor David Johnson- these are men I saw Frank Houston severely savage in the 1980s.
Brian’s hatchet job on Geoff Bullock
Geoff Bullock was severely savaged by Brian Houston in 1995.
Brian makes out he’s innocent of trashing Geoff but everyone knows that Brian did a hatchet job on Geoff Bullock.
Geoff is still damaged from his time under Brian and what Brian did to him even to this day.
How I dealt with cranky Frank
I never put myself in a position whereby Frank Houston could attack me.
I was always gentle, polite and civil with him and he liked me.
There may have been some covert homosexual attraction from Frank towards me because I was young and handsome and in my mid 20s.
Frank was always nice to me.
Except twice in 1990 when the gay Frank tried it on with me on two separate occasions on ministry trips. That’s when I truly knew he was a sicko.
How did Frank Houston treat people
Frank Houston dealt with people on different levels.
The first layer of Frank’s intimacy was the homosexual and pedophile Frank. His lovers and his sexual abuse victims
His secret lover from 1980 to 1984 was his young worship leader Peter Laughton.
Peter was aged 20 and Frank was aged 58 when the secret homosexual affair started at Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst Sydney.
The second layer of relationship was his wife and family
These provided the perfect cover for his homosexual and pedophile activities. A family man.
Who would suspect the evil goings-on behind the scenes? No one at CLC Darlinghurst did.
We’d heard Frank was accused of child sexual abuse but he denied it and said his enemies were attacking him- just like his son Brian does when people say and write the truth about him.
Frank’s wife Hazel provided the meals, cleaned the house and did the family finances. Like an old-school wife she did all the practical stuff and was the home-maker. A kind of unpaid slave.
The third layer of relationship was his Christian ministry inner circle
At CLC Darlinghurst in the 1980s Frank’s Christian ministry inner circle were his son Brian Houston, his church administrator Gary Canham and young gun pastors Paul de Jong (now pastor of Life Church Auckland New Zealand), Sean Stanton (now pastoring in Queensland and a senior ACC pastor), Trevor King and his young secret homosexual lover Peter Laughton.
The fourth layer were Frank’s lay home fellowship leaders including leaders like Phil Thwaites, Laurie Murphy, me and many others.
In the fifth layer were young men who amused Frank, were his play things and passed the time.
The handsome young musician Steve Coleman was in this category.
Steve was Frank’s favourite travelling companion in the early 1980s.
I don’t know if Steve was sexually involved with Frank but he did get arrested and jailed for pedophile offences on young girls some time later.
There were a couple of young guys who ran the puppet ministry who Frank took to his home after the Sunday night services and they played computer games like ‘Mario and Luigi’. I don’t know if they were sexually abused.
The complex life of Frank the pedophile
That gives the reader a brief picture of the life of Frank the pedophile but it was far more complex than that.
Frank Houston was sanguine and relational but not in a mature healthy way. Frank needed people but every person in his life fitted into a complex web of covert homosexual and pedophile lust, cover and deceit.
This is how spiders work. This is how foxes work. This is how wolves work. This is how pedophiles work. This is how Frank Houston operated in life.
Our innocence about pedophilia in the 1970s and 1980s
I didn’t realise the accusations in the late 1970s- “Frank abused boys”- were true.
I didn’t really know what a pedophile was and never considered it. I never imagined the horrors pedophiles do to children and young people.
Even at age 25 in 1981 when I started attended CLC Darlinghurst (first Hillsong) I was quite innocent. I’d never contemplated what pedophilia was and involved.
There were no articles in the paper about stuff like domestic violence or crimes against children in 1960s and 1970s New Zealand.
Its only since circa 2000 with the exposure of pedophilia in the Church of Rome in Ireland and America that social consciousness and knowledge about child abuse has greatly increased.
Frank Houston’s bad temper and errant bullying
I’d heard of Frank Houston’s bad temper and errant bullying in New Zealand (NZ) in the 1970s.
He was known as ‘Cranky Frank’ and his temper fits at NZ Assemblies of God (AOG) Executive meetings when he couldn’t get his own way were legendary.
Frank Houston was a little wiry man but like Adolf Hitler there were a lot of demons packed jam-tight in that little wiry assertive body.
At CLC Darlinghurst in the 1980s Frank Houston was mellower but I think just more cunning.
Brian Houston the new age man
Brian is now trying to reinvent himself as a more gentle sensitive new-age guy but that’s only because he’s leaving the dirty work and hatchet jobs to other members of the Hillsong mafia like the young guns Joel A’Bell, Joel Houston and Carl Lentz.
Even a mafia don tires of the bloodshed- until his time comes to die by the sword too.
Why does Brian make out he’s so dumb
On page 9 of ‘Live Love Lead’ Brian writes “I was not a great student and easily distracted”.
At the Royal Commission Brian made out he was a simpleton window cleaner.
How could a dumb simpleton window cleaner grow a mega-church like Hillsong?
Brian Houston is dumbing himself up to try to escape prosecution for pedophile protection crimes
The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse wasn’t fooled by Brian and his dumbed up antics one bit.
The astute barristers and solicitors running the Royal Commission weren’t born yesterday.
They’ve seen plenty of errant scheming cunning foxes like Brian Houston and his errant Hillsong and Australian Christian Churches (ACC) mates pass through the Court Rooms and through Royal Commission Doors.
The ACC used to be called the Australian Assemblies of God (AOG) prior to 2007 when Brian Houston renamed it.
The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse accused Brian of changing the Australian Assemblies of God’s (AOG) name to avoid paying compensation to the boy victims
The Royal Commission accused Brian of changing the Australian Assemblies of God name to try to evade paying compensation to the boy and young male victims of the founder of Hillsong Frank Houston.
This won’t work. There is legal precedent whereby directors of companies and companies are held liable for the actions of previous entities and companies they’ve trade in.
How Brian doesn’t understand his father
Brian doesn’t understand yet that his father Frank was a hardened pedophile by age 20 who deliberately set out around the age of 20 to use the Christian ministry as a foil and disguise to breach the natural defences of innocent trusting and believing New Zealand Christian families so he could access their little boys for his own sexual gratification.
Further as a lifelong secret homosexual and child rapist Frank Houston was never sincere and genuine about anything he did. It was all an act.
Frank the pedophile’s marriage to Hazel was an act. It was a disguise so he could carry out his pedophile activities more easily.
The mind of a pedophile
What Brian fails to understand is the mind of a pedophile.
A pedophile has very deep pathological urges to molest children and teens. This motivation occupies and predominates all their thought-life.
A pedophile is very heavily demonised. Almost demon-possessed.
The Lord Jesus said child abuse is an extremely serious crime. So is the protection of child rapists.
Brian has not let go of the notion of his father Frank as his hero
In the above extract Brian writes “When my father passed away in 2004, I grieved for the dad I had known growing up: the loving man who was my hero and role model; the brilliant preacher and evangelist.”
“…the loving man who was my hero and role model; the brilliant preacher and evangelist.”
“The loving man”
There was no loving man.
Love is not a pedophile.
A pedophile is a highly depraved creature who is incapable of genuine Biblical love.
The care a fox takes for its young is not a demonstration of Biblical love. It’s called survival.
Like a fox a pedophile survives between meals.
A meal for a demonised pedophile is a sexual abuse experience. This is what a pedophile lives for and gears their whole life around.
The pedophile Frank Houston was no different.
Brian should stop saying and writing “dad is my hero”, “dad was my hero” and “dad was always my hero”.
Brian- your father is no longer your hero.
Brian, your dad Frank was a rotten lifelong secret pedophile who took your mum for the greatest ride of her life, probably sexually abused you and your brother Graeme and probably sexually abused all your children. And he’d be secretly sexually abusing their children too if he wasn’t currently doing a ‘please explain’ to Almighty God.
“A role model”
Frank Houston was a role model from hell. Period. Full stop.
“The brilliant preacher and evangelist”
Brian please get it through your thick window cleaning botoxed-up head: “It was all a lie”.
Yes everything. The brilliant preacher thing. The evangelist thing.
Yes Brian. All a foil. All a disguise so your dad could abuse kids. All a big fat satanic lie.
Who knows your dad may have been a Satanist or Illuminati- who are known pedophiles and regard child abuse as a pleasant satanic past-time.
The child rapist preacher Frank Houston and the child rapist preacher Jim Williams aided and abetted each other in their pedophile passions.
These two lifelong evil secret criminal pedophiles were the heads of the New Zealand Assemblies of God (AOG) from 1965 to 1985. That’s 20 years when satan ruled the NZ AOG.
Plus their successor Wayne Hughes was also a pedophile. Wayne Hughes was head of the NZ AOG for 18 years until 2003.
That’s a total of 38 years when pedophiles led the NZ AOG.
Frank Houston was Superintendent of the New Zealand AOG from 1965 to 1977 when he resigned and went to Australia. He sexually abused children all this period. Multitudes of them.
Jim Williams was the head of the NZ AOG from 1977 to 1985.
Jim Williams ended up getting banned for life by the NZ AOG.
He then went to Australia where Brian Houston as head of the Australian AOG welcomed him.
Jim Williams was later banned for life by the Australian AOG.
A lady Caroline Andrews wrote to me late last year about how the pedophile “Pastor” Jim Williams sexually abused her and three friends when she was 12 years old in Victoria Australia before he went to “pastor” in New Zealand.
Wayne Hughes. Pedophile.
The Head of the New Zealand AOG form 1985 to 2003. 18 years. Pastor of Takapuna Assemblies of God.
Wayne Hughes sexually abused a teenager and was forced to resign. There were probably other teen victims. The gender of the victim is not known publicly at this stage.
Is Brian Houston as dumb and innocent as he makes out?
Brian lacks a tertiary education like his father. Brian didn’t listen at school and by his own admission is poorly educated.
This lack of a sound formal education is quite evident in Brian’s speech, his sermons and his books.
I seriously think Brian should consider stopping writing although I’m thankful for all the insights he gives us into his soul and mind through his rambling and at times incoherent alcohol and medication-assisted writings.
Brian has street smarts and Houston fox and wolf cunning which more than makes up for his lack of education in his quests in a world where street-smarts are often more helpful than an academic training.
“I’m a dumb window cleaner” is a Houston foil and disguise
Brian’s statement that “I’m just a dumb window cleaner” to the Royal Commission and in this book ‘Live Love Lead’ is all a ploy of Brian’s to try to make us feel sorry for him and to empathise with him.
In ‘Live Love Lead’ Brian is trying to justify his actions in not reporting his father to the NSW Police and for sheltering his father from the Police and the Authorities.
Brian’s book is a plea letter to the NSW Police and to the Authorities saying “I did my best. I did the right thing”.
And, “I’m just a dumb simple window cleaner who did his best to clean up a mess dad left behind”.
Brian keeps saying in this book, to the media all over the world and to the Royal Commission “I did the right thing”.
But the NSW Police, the NSW Courts and the NSW barristers and judges have heard every crook who has been dragged into their doors says the same kinds of things.
Innocent until proven guilty
The Australian legal system is based on the Westminster legal system and system of government whereby ‘a person is presumed innocent until they are proven guilty’.
Actus Reus Non Facit Reum Nisi Mens Sit Rea
Duhaime’s Law Dictionary
Actus Reus Non Facit Reum Nisi Mens Sit Rea
Latin: conviction of a crime requires proof of a criminal act and intent.
But Brian Houston has already been declared guilty of pedophile protection crimes by the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
The power of a Royal Commission
An Australian Royal Commission is not a Court but it is a very powerful and influential Australian national legal body with very strong powers to recommend prosecution.
I don’t think Brian the window cleaner understands this, nor does he fully understand the trouble he’s got himself into by protecting and sheltering a pedophile.
The Federal and State Attorney General’s departments, police and courts have a legal fiduciary duty to prosecute anyone recommended to them for prosecution by a Royal Commission
Prosecution is not an option but a fiduciary legal duty once a Royal Commission recommends an Australian Federal or State Attorney-General’s Department to prosecute somebody.
The barrister the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse (RC) engaged to represent it in respect to Brian Houston, Hillsong Church and the ACC movement was Simeon Beckett, a highly experienced and respected Sydney silk. (word for Australian barrister).
In December 2014, two months after the Australian Royal Commission (RC) subpoenaed and interviewed Brian Houston and Hillsong Church, the RC Barrister Simeon Beckett publicly recommended that Brian Houston be prosecuted for pedophile protection crimes.
Brian Houston will not get off the hook now the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has recommended him for prosecution in its findings of October last year
The file has already been handed to the NSW Police a long time ago and the knock by the NSW Police on Brian Houston’s door is not far away.
Brian Houston will be charged with pedophile protection crimes
The relevant NSW Legislation is the CHILDREN AND YOUNG PERSONS (CARE AND PROTECTION) ACT 1998 – SECT 23.
Brian Houston’s Court Trial
Brian Houston will be charged with pedophile protection crimes and after a long trial will be convicted.
He may appeal but this will be a waste of time and he may risk a heavier sentence.
These offences carry a sentence of possible prison time.
If convicted of pedophile protection crimes, which are criminal offences, Brian won’t be allowed into America and other countries who don’t want criminals visiting their country.
These countries have already got enough criminals of their own.
Brian Houston and Hillsong’s reputation
Irrespective of whether Brian does time his reputation and the reputation of Hillsong Church will be trashed world-wide and will never recover.
Hillsong will continue on but more and more it will be seen as a cult- like the Jehovahs Witnesses- and shunned and avoided by Bible believing Christians.
The sins of Hillsong Church- a great Apostate End-Time church
We also haven’t seen the end of the Hillsong Rainbow yet- as a camp end-time Apostate church- and Tony Venn-Brown’s gay Rainbow Revival will play out at Hillsong for many years to come, getting camper and camper and gayer and gayer as the years go by.
Hillsong Church is a great Apostate End-Time church
Hillsong Church preaches the false Prosperity Gospel and the false ‘jesus-only heresy’ gospel.
Hillsong Church is quietly promoting Tony Venn-Brown, the gay Christian activist’s ‘gay Rainbow Revival’
Hillsong Church condones and supports Christian homosexuality and hides and shelters pedophiles and conducts pedophile protection
Hillsong Church is involved in every financial scam known to mankind committed by its greedy errant leaders
Hillsong uses Buddhist motifs and thinks Yoga is OK.
Hillsong uses occult symbols in its worship- like CGI snakes and pyramids
Hillsong’s Head Pastor is about to be charged with pedophile protection crimes
