Brian Houston’s book “You Need More Money”. His next book due out in March this year before Brian goes on a 25 American city promotion of his book with the Hillsong youth band is “There is More”. With Brian Houston it’s all about “More. More, more”. Like Hades, Brian Houston is never satisfied.

Hillsong Conference is held annually in Sydney Australia each July and runs for four days. It is an annual event that has been held for thirty years.

Pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston, co-head pastors of Hillsong, are Prosperity Gospel and Word of Faith exponents. They are also compromised by accepting non-repentant gays and lesbians into their congregation, even in positions of top leadership. Josh Canfield, the long-time head worship leader of Hillsong New York City and previously Hillsong London, is an example. Josh was preparing to marry his live-in boyfriend Reed Kelly at Hillsong New York City until they split up in March 2016. Head pastor Carl Lentz was supportive of their relationship and refuses to call out hardened gays in his church with the ruth of the Christian message on gays – that is, repent of the sins of homosexuality and lesbianism, and believe in Christ and His moral purity.

The errant heretical Prosperity Gospel of Hillsong, Brian Houston and other Prosperity Gospel pastors is contrary to the teachings of the New Testament.

All the speakers at Hillsong Conferences are Prosperity Gospel and Word of Faith adherents. Any speaker that speakers at a Hillsong Conference is aware of all, or many of,  Hillsong’s heresies and is part of this heretical counterfeit “Pentecostal” movement world-wide. Which is not true Pentecostal at all. The leaders of the Welsh Revival, the Azusa Street Revival, John G Lake, Kathryn Kuhlmann, Smith Wigglesworth, General John Booth of the Salvation Army, John and Charles Wesley the founders of Methodism, John Knox and all the great leaders and generals of the Christian faith going back to Christ and the Early Church Fathers, would be horrified by Hillsong and it’s heresies.

The Prosperity Gospel and Word of Faith heresy are heresies created by Lucifer and sent from Hades.


The Prosperity Gospel

I prefer the term “The Prosperity and Property Gospel”.

This is a term I invented. It is an extension of the term Prosperity Gospel and it encapsulates the full emphasis of the errant false pastors, false teachers, false evangelists and false prophets who preach the Prosperity Gospel.

Recently I read an article which mentioned that the errant and highly corrupt Australian Pastor Brian Houston head pastor of Hillsong Global Global Church denies he preaches the Prosperity Gospel.

A goat is a goat and a sheep is a sheep even if they are unable to articulate their species.

Brian Houston is from New Zealand

Like me, Pastor Brian Houston was born in New Zealand and he was raised in Wellington the capital like I was. I never knew Brian before I came to spend time at Hillsong in the 1980s and 1990s. I heard his father Frank Houston preach once at Kapiti Christian Centre and I attended Lower Hutt Assemblies of God church once in the late 1970s.

The Prosperity Gospel in the 1970s

In New Zealand in the 1950s to 1970s American tele-evangelists like Benny Hinn were an unknown species.

I’d heard of Kenneth Copeland and Kenneth Hagin, both American Prosperity Gospel exponents, and they had some influence back then, but as Christians we were more influenced by men and women of God such as Derek Prince, a very learned and sound Pentecostal and Charismatic pastor and teacher, who is now long deceased, Kathryn Kuhlmann who died in the 1970s, and spiritually great Christians like George Muller, Hudson Taylor, and many others.

The Prosperity and Property Gospel

I have been reluctant to share various Biblically based business principles because the Prosperity Gospel “pastors” have been scamming and fleecing the Church, the Blessed Body of Christ for decades and I have tried to lead my readers away from any of the thinking and writings of the Prosperity and Property Gospel or anything suggestive of it.

The servants of the Prosperity and Property Gospel

These errant men and women who promote, love and serve the Prosperity Gospel include Australian Pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston head pastors of Hillsong Global mega-church and their fully corrupt offspring, Hillsong leaders and the leaders of the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) movement (formerly called the Australian Assemblies of God (AOG)), Australian pastors Phil Pringle and his wife Chris Pringle of C3 Global mega-church which he has over 1000 affiliated churches, Pastor Kong Hee and his errant wife Sun Yeow Ho head pastors of City Harvest Church (CHC) in Singapore (Kong Hee is in jail for a 3.5 year jail term for Singapore Charity law breachs and fraud crimes), American televangelists Benny Hinn, Paula White, Kenneth Copeland (a very greedy man who flaunts his great wealth of over USD$800 million) and untold other Prosperity Gospel false pastors, false teachers, false evangelists, false healers and false prophets throughout the planet.

These are the reefs in our love feasts (see the book of Jude), charlatans, wolf pastors, greedy conning scamming evangelists, Apostates, false prophets, false teachers, false pastors, hirelings, and goats and tares spoken of in the New Testament of the Holy Bible.

My roots have prevented me from embracing any of the tenets of the Prosperity Gospel.

My reaction to the Prosperity and Property Gospel is not new for me.

My roots, upbringing, church background and knowledge of the teachings of the Lord Jesus and the New Testament have always prevented me from embracing any of the tenets of the Prosperity Gospel.

For my parents and grandparents money was regarded more as a tool for living and doing God’s work than an end in itself. They never talked about money. They never boasted about what they had materially. Only if you were very close to them would they share anything to do with their personal finances.

My maternal grandfather and grandmother would never talk about money. Nor would my mother and father.

My mother ran the family finances. My father wasn’t interested in money or finances at all and left it to mum to manage all the family finances. Dad never placed any emphasis on money. He had some nice suits for his pastoral work but would never buy extras like a nice smart warm jacket. I would sometimes buy dad things like that when flew from Australia to visit my parents. So money and the acquisition of great wealth was never a primary motivation in my family culture apart from the necessities of living.
