“Doctor” Phil Pringle head pastor of C3 Church about his role in helping to restore “Pastor” Pat Mesiti to the Christian ministry from 2002 to 2006:

“So Brian Houston and myself..we are good friends ….I said….”look…I’ll put my hand up…I’d like to ..help…and I’ve known Pat ..forever and he’s good friends with a lot of the people on this staff …and has been…..and I thought this’d be great if he came..and was in our church…and we would seek to see him & standing on his feet again.”

Super Phil.

Super Phil. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Super Phil. Did you hear that you and Brian Houston’s spiritual son Pastor Pat Mesiti recently bashed his wife, got caught out with loose ladies again and his second wife Andrea has dumped him? “”Doctor” Phil Pringle CEO of C3 International Prosperity Gospel Church Pty Ltd: “I’m glad you asked me that question. I was personally assigned the task of restoring the errant Pasquale “Pat” Mesiti the holy brat pastor to the holy ministry of both Hillsong and C3 Church. I’ll have to do some more reformation on young Pasquale. It’s clear I forgot to tell him some things”.

Note of 24 August 2016

Pastor Pat Mesiti is still a Hillsong Global Church pastor and still a C3 Global Church pastor, despite what Pat Mesiti has done as described in all that follows in this article.

This article is a chronological account of Pat Mesiti’s amoral life from 2016 back to the late 1990s. A kind of Pat Mesiti diary of dysfunction.

I am not judging Pat Mesiti for what he has done in the sense that “we’re all sinners”, as Pastor Brian Houston head pastor of Hillsong Global Church likes to say to rationalise every sin under God’s fair earth going on at Hillsong Global Churches all over the world.

What I am judging is what Pat Mesiti has done while pretending to be a Christian pastor.

What Pat Mesiti has done is reflective of Pastor Brian Houston’s and “Doctor Phil” Pringle’s amoral corrupt approach to being a Christian pastor, and what they allow to go on in their pastors’ lives.

It is also reflective of the father of Brian and the spiritual father of Phil and Pat, Pastor Frank Houston.

That is Pastor Frank Houston the founder of Hillsong Global Church who was for seven decades a secret pedophile.

Pat Mesiti’s secret sex holidays behind his second wife Andrea’s back

Brian’s father, Pastor Frank Houston was a lifelong secret pedophile who sexually abused hundreds of little boys in his lifetime in Australia and New Zealand and in other parts of the world where he went for “evangelism” while pretending to be a Christian pastor.

Like Pat Mesiti, Frank Houston’s evangelistic travels were really secret sex holidays.

In Pat Mesiti’s evangelistic travels the objects of his desire were any available Christian young ladies and prostitutes.

In Frank Houston’s evangelistic travels the objects of his desire were any available little boys aged 7-12 from Christian families.

If little boys weren’t available he’d opt for male teens or older males.

I believe he also went and procured “rent boys”- underage male prostitutes. I have some evidence of this from the 1980s but no definite proof. However it is almost certain he did.

I do have evidence of the sexual abuse by Frank Houston of 12 little boys and 2 teens in the 1960s and 1970s. I believe he was active as a pedophile from the 1930s until his death in 2004.

Pat Mesiti has used the Christian ministry to access young women to sexually abuse them. Like his second wife Andrea who was a young Hillsong worship leader in the late 1990s who he seduced and bedded while married to his first wife.

Pat Mesiti is a close friend of Pastor Brian Houston and Brian has protected Pat.

Pastor Pat Mesiti is still a Hillsong mega-church pastor and still a C3 Church pastor, despite what Pat Mesiti has done in all that follows in this article which includes being a long-time self-confessed sex addict, committing adultery against both his first and second wife, secretly visiting prostitutes while a famous Hillsong Youth Alive evangelist, using his Hillsong credit card to procure prostitutes and physical domestic violence against his second wife Andrea who has since divorced him this year.

“A former Hillsong preacher turned motivational speaker believes he is “more qualified” to help people after domestic violence charges against him were dismissed because he was suffering depression.

Pat Mesiti, 56. was charged after grabbing his now ex-wife Andrea by the neck during an argument over a party at their family home on Glenhaven on New Years Eve last year.

Parramatta Local Court heard Mesiti, who pleaded guilty to assault, was struggling with the separation from his second wife and was taking anti-depressants.

Magistrate Gary Still dismissed the charge for mental health reasons and ordered Mesiti to follow a treatment plan a set out by his doctor.

Outside court, a repentant Mesiti said he had learnt a lot in the past three months. “I will keep doing what I am doing and try to help people”.

At Parramatta Court today, “Pastor” Pat Mesiti admitted bashing his second wife Andrea on New Years Eve 2015, including a punch to her head.

pat mesiti leaves court 29.2.16

Former preacher “Pastor” Pasquale “Pat” Mesiti, 56, appeared in Parramatta local court today Monday 29 February 2016 and admitted physically assaulting his second wife Andrea on New Year’s Eve. 

On New Years Eve 2015 Pat Mesiti was charged by the NSW North-West Police with bashing his wife.

Today he was convicted at Parramatta Court Sydney with one count of common assault for actual physical assault on his second wife Andrea- “in a fit of rage while heavily intoxicated”. He awaits sentencing.

Here is a News.com article of today explaining the situation in more detail.

Self-help guru admits NYE attack on wife

Self-help guru admits NYE attack on wife

A former Hillsong preacher arrived on his estranged wife’s doorstep drunk and grabbed her “by the neck” after learning she had green-lit a New Year’s Eve party at their home, court documents reveal.

Pat “Pasquale” Mesiti pleaded guilty to one count of common assault on Monday, two months after the attack on his wife Andrea in her northwest Sydney home.

Prosecutors have agreed to drop a more serious charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

A fact sheet tendered in Parramatta Local Court states Mesiti and his wife have been married for 13 years but are now in the final stages of divorce, having separated last April.

Mesiti moved out of the family home in Glenhaven the following month.

The former evangelical preacher, who now lives in Kellyville Ridge in Sydney’s Hills district, has penned a number of self-help books including Staying Together Without Falling Apart, billed as a definitive guide to helping men and women “thrive together in a modern day relationship”.

Documents tendered in Parramatta Local Court suggest the 56-year-old earns $2500 a week on the public speaking circuit.

The documents state Mesiti and his wife were both out separately with friends on December 31 last year when Mesiti saw photos posted on Facebook by a young female relative, showing a party in full swing at the Glenhaven house.

He immediately began calling and texting Mrs Mesiti, warning her he was calling police.

“After arriving home, the accused, being intoxicated, has begun arguing with all the partygoers including (the young relative), demanding them all to get out,” the documents state.

“About 10pm the victim has arrived at the home before walking down the driveway and into the front door.”

After a heated verbal argument during which Mrs Mesiti defended allowing the party, Mesiti grabbed his wife by the neck.

“A physical altercation has ensued during which the victim has felt an impact to the right side of her head,” the documents state.

Police arrived as Mrs Mesiti and the young relative were leaving in tears.

Mesiti will remain out on bail until his sentencing next month but must comply with a 12-month apprehended violence order, which bars him from assaulting or stalking Mrs Mesiti or approaching her within 12 hours of consuming alcohol.

“In a nutshell, that means that you cannot do anything that makes her fear for her safety,” Magistrate Karen Stafford told Mesiti on Monday.

“If you have a glass of wine with dinner at 7pm at night, you cannot go and see her until 7am the next morning.”

Mesiti did not comment as he left court.

MULTIPLE ADULTERIES WHILE A FAMOUS HILLSONG YOUTH EVANGELIST AND HILLSONG PASTOR

Sydney Morning Herald

Disgraced evangelist in hiding after being stripped of licence

Kelly Burke, Religious Affairs Writer

SMH, Wednesday, 27 March 2002, Page 8

NEWS AND FEATURES

He was one of Australia’s most prominent and internationally lauded evangelists, a champion of Christian youth and a motivational speaker who convinced thousands that the pursuit of money and fame was a godly business. Now Pat Mesiti is in disgrace and in hiding, sacked as a National Director of the Australian Christian Churches and stripped of his licence to minister.

Gone is the Pat Mesiti Ministries signage that distinguished the entrance of his Castle Hill mansion. But the 4000-strong congregation of the Assemblies of God church Hillsong, where Mr Mesiti is based, remains in the dark. According to Assemblies of God (AOG) documents obtained by the Herald Mr Mesiti was sacked after allegations of sexual misconduct. It is understood the allegations were not of a criminal nature.

“We are aware that the above information may be a surprise and shock to some of you and therefore we have deliberately chosen to restrict this letter to our ordained and probationary ministers”, the confidential document said.” We cannot see any reason for this to be announced to your church or further afield”.

The National President of the AOG, Brian Houston, who is also Hillsong’s Senior Pastor, denied there was a cover-up. “This whole area of sex abuse and predatory behaviour is devastating … but I believe we have tried to deal with this issue with integrity and honesty”, said Mr Houston, speaking from Los Angeles. But the scandal may prove devastating on more than one front for the church, which has spent two years rebranding itself as Australian Christian Churches and persuading other less powerful pentecostal denominations to climb on board.

In 2000 Mr Houston was forced to sack his father, Frank, after he confessed to what the AOG Church’s National Executive has described as serious moral failure while he was an AOG minister in New Zealand. Mr Houston senior was NSWs most senior AOG figure and the man credited with converting the champion jockey Darren Beadman, who later trained as an AOG pastor.

The AOGs National Executive Vice-President, John Lewis, conducted the Frank Houston investigation at the invitation of his son.

Mr Lewis said the offences were so serious that Mr Houston senior, now in his early 80s, was not even given the option of quietly retiring. The Herald has been contacted by one of Mr Houstons alleged victims, who is now considering legal action against the church.

Brian Houston said that of the AOGs 2000 Australian ministers, no more than five in any year were exposed and disciplined for sexual misconduct. He went on to defend the former AOG New Zealand General Superintendent Jim Williams, who serves as a pastor in Brisbane but whose licence in New Zealand was permanently revoked for sexual misconduct. Mr Mesiti is undergoing what the church terms a three-year restoration process.

Pat Mesiti now attends C3

In his glory days Pat Mesiti was a National Director of Australian Christian Churches.

My comments:

What the Sydney Morning Herald article didn’t know was that the adultery was with prostitutes while Pat Mesiti was a very famous Hillsong Youth pastor. Pat Mesiti was preaching to thousands of innocent young people, including my children at times, and after the services going down to Darlinghurst to have sex with prostitutes. It is unknown whether the prostitutes were male or female or underaged. Pat Mesiti also used Hillsong credit cards to pay for some of these services. That is how he got caught. Unauthorised use of Hillsong credit cards.

Since Pastor Brian Houston called Pat Mesiti’s adultery with prostitutes ‘serious moral failure’ and Brian, as Superintendent of the ACC movement, instructed by letter all the Australian Christian churches not to tell their congregations about it, and just as he called his old life-long pedophile dad Frank’s pedophilia ‘serious moral failure’, and instructed all the Australian Christian churches by letter not to tell their congregations about it, I feel it is my duty to tell everyone the facts of both of these cases of spiritual fornication, adultery, homosexuality and pedophilia.

It is unknown to me if Pat Mesiti committed pedophilia with underage boy or girl prostitutes or with any other children. Pat Mesiti needs to clarify what he did and with whom. The comments box at the bottom of this article is available for Pat to clarify these questions.

THE RESTORATION

C3 Watch:

Phil Pringle ‘Restoring’ Pat Mesiti As A Church Pastor

Pat Mesiti was, in Pastor Phil Pringles words, re-instated as a preacher on Sunday 19 February 2006 and now serves God with a new awareness and humility.

In the transcript below, Phil Pringle shares that Brian Houston and he “are good friends” and that Phil Pringle has known Mesiti “forever”.

Was Pat Mesiti’s Christian character restored?

Hillsong and C3 seem to think so.

Pat Mesiti said that when he came out of this restoration process he believed, “in the message of prosperity more now than I ever did”.

Many are cynical about this “message of prosperity” that Mesiti got from this process from both Hillsong and C3.

Below is a transcript of Pat Mesiti’s restoration.

Pat Mesiti’s restoration

Christian City Church, Oxford Falls 6pm service, Sunday February 19, 2006

Doctor Phil Pringle

“Doctor Phil” Pringle

Phil Pringle:

“I know a lot of you were not in this morning’s service…and I need your attention ….I need your full attention people…I need you to be looking this way ..and listening….thank you very much.

Because this morning I made an announcement …and in last night’s service..that I need to make again and .. it’s a great announcement …a very joyful announcement.

About four-and-a-half years ago …there was an evangelist in this country by the name of Pat Mesiti.

Most of you I think will know of him.. some of you may not.

Restored. Older, wiser and greedier.

Padre Pasquale “Pat” Mesiti. Restored. Contrite. Embarassed  Older, wiser and greedier.

He had a television program and was regularly conducting crusades … where through..500/1500 people would come to Christ.

He was an initiator of many great youth programs, including Youth Alive here in New South Wales… and accomplished a huge number of things for the nation ..in the realm of evangelism and.. touching people’s lives with the gospel.

However, four-and-a-half years ago, Pat had a terrible, terrible tumble….a moral collapse which resulted in his marriage breaking ..and ..was a sad moment.

Tumbler

Little Tumbler

He was taken out of ministry…and ..stepped down.

He was an ordained minister in the Assemblies of God ..and after attempting to retrace..recover ..and after a year…it seemed it wasn’t going quite how it was anticipated.

So Brian Houston and myself..who are good friends ….I said….look…I’ll put my hand up…I’d like to ..help…and I’ve known Pat ..forever and he’s good friends with a lot of the people on this staff …and has been…..and I thought this’d be great if he came..and was in our church…and we would seek to see him standing on his feet again.

A number of years ago…I said to the Lord….’I’m so busy being a pastor….I don’t feel like I’m being a Christian.’

Doctor Phil

“Doctor Phil”. Used to hand out pizzas. Now hands out false prophecies and dodgy restorations.

And…that just meant I was so busy leading and preaching ..doing all the stuff I wanted… I felt like…going and handing out pizzas to the homeless in Hyde Park ..or visiting people in old folks’ homes or reading books…or people in prison.

I’ve done all that..and used to teach in a school for handicapped children ….and …I go and visit prisons …just tell them to send up a prisoner if they didn’t have a visitor ..and I’d be there….and they didn’t know me…so.. when you get to be a pastor…you get a lot of other things going on ..

But He said to me …’no you’ve got a church full of people who can do that’……so I pray you do it man…

And He said….’no..no..no..what I want you to do is reach out to people that other people can’t reach out to..and that’s pastors …who are having troubled times…

And so…I try to do that…and there’s a few …who…I have no judgements on men and women who’ve found their life in trouble ….

Who knows what pressures they’re facing and what things they’ve gone through …but I do know they need to be recovered and restored.

And there is a pathway for that…repentence …restoration…restitution ..and making things right.

So Pat came….and I said to him…’Pat ..I want you to do several things…..one….turn up to church..’

Donald Elley of Bellingen:

Doctor Phil: “Pat, listen up. Turn up at church and listen to me, I’m the great “Doctor Phil” Pringle. I’m amazing”.

And even with the shame and the awkwardness and the emotional difficulty of all that …I said ..’that’s what you’ve gotta do’.

Because the church is the best place you can be…rather than a counselling room ….just being in the worship…being in the local church …being involved in some ministry …of serving in the House.. all of those things are the best healing processes you will ever find yourself engaged in….because you’re forced to modify your behaviour and get things right and overcome …and all kinds of things….and relate to people…

And then just the Spirit of God working amongst us..

I believe in the power of the local church …it is the most powerful thing on Earth …to actually affect all sorts of things in people’s lives.

So Pat did that..and one year after his marriage had broke…he met a lady called Andrea ..and I was happy to participate in their marriage …three….two-and-a-half years ago …two years ago? Two years ago ….and that was a really joyful occasion.

And Pat and Andrea served in the visitors’ lounge …helping us there …and have continued to be involved… in our church over that time.

And he’s been relating to Greg French….Simon McIntyre ..Mark Kelsey and myself …over that period of time.

We’ve had times where we’ve needed to say things…or help him understand things..or whatever ..and Pat has been exemplary in all his ways of handling it.

I have tried this with a number of ministers and leaders over the years ..and I’ve got to say not without a lot of success.

It’s been unfortunate..because people find it difficult ..find it tough to recover…old steps.

But Pat has really displayed a repentent attitude ..and a commitment to a pathway ..that will bring him fully back into that way…

Naughty pat. Now repentant.

Very Naughty Little Pat. Now repentant.

And the ministry team…we’ve all talked to each other…..and quite satisfied that he has fulfilled all those obligations.

The Assemblies of God asked him to do three years of restoration……it’s actually been four-and-a-half years now…that he has been out of ministry…and …as I said…we are happy that…

….So in the 10 o’clock service this morning… we laid hands on Pat and Andrea…and restored them to the ministry that God has called them to…(applause)..

In those services……well..actually…only in the 10 o’clock service….I asked Pat just to share something briefly..and he did… and so…I said…I want you to share in that service just briefly…..but what I really want you to do is preach in our church on Sunday night….

So…I want you to welcome Pat Mesiti as he comes…” (applause/cheering/Mesiti hugs Pringle)

Yo Pat. This is your life. This is your second chance little man. Go forth and conquer. Make us all millionaires.

Yo Pat. This is your life. This is your second chance little man. Go forth and conquer. Make us all millionaires.

The writer, Donald Elley of Bellingen.

C3 Watch blog-site are very down on Phil Pringle.

I attended the C3 for about six years in the late nineties until 2002.

I renovated C3 City Campus (another trendy name for Church) in Darlinghurst for no charge re my time. It’s a beautiful old 1860 sandstone church and the oldest building in Darlinghurst.

I was always blessed by C3 at Oxford Falls back then however “Doctor Phil” Pringle has gone off the rails with false prophecies and delusions go grandeur particularly in relation to his spiritual progeny, the errant “Pastor” Kong Hee head pastor of City Harvest Church Singapore.

C3 wouldn’t suit me now because culturally I’m a hippy bourgeois farmer and the hype, loud noise and spin would make me go troppo.

 

Whether Pat Mesiti has been restored I wouldn’t have a clue. Phil Pringle thinks he has.

 

I’ve heard Pat Mesiti preach and personally the hype and weirdo levels are way too high for me. Is that a biblical term to describe high velocity, uninhibited, in-your-face preaching from an ill-educated, well-dressed small Italian?

Like I sense about Brian Houston,  I sense no good thing in God about Pat Mesiti. No anointing of the Holy Spirit. I doubt he’s had deliverance and been baptised in the Holy Spirit.

What’s the point in taking people seriously in God who are like that?

I’m not sure why Phil Pringle can’t see through these men. I thought he was a smart guy.

Extra note 20 October 2015:

I’m adding here two extra articles with additional information about Pat Mesiti’s adulteries, including with prostitutes while at the same time being a famous Australian Youth pastor preaching to thousands of trusting young people.

Padre Pasquale Mesiti- amazingly

Padre Pasquale Mesiti- amazingly “restored” by Pastor Brian Houston and “Doctor” Phil Pringle.

Article on this site, ‘Hillsong scandals and improprieties. Hillsong insider speaks out. Part one. The truth about Pat Mesiti’s adulteries with prostitutes’ published 15 October 2015.

I’ve been contacted by a high up Hillsong insider who believes that Hillsong has gone off the rails and wants to tell their story.

This article is the first in a series of articles publishing the eye-witness testimonies of this Hillsong insider.

Hillsong insider reports:

“Pat Mesiti committed adultery with Darlinghurst prostitutes while he was a famous Hillsong Youth Alive pastor preaching to thousands of young people.

Pat Mesiti was caught by paying for the services of prostitutes using a Hillsong Church credit card.

Pat Mesiti had an adulterous affair, while he was married, with a young Hillsong worship leader.

He divorced his wife and married the young Hillsong worship leader who he had the affair with.

The pursuit and even harassment of young attractive women in Hillsong church by older Hillsong men and leaders is common. In fact it is part of the inner culture of Hillsong church”.

My comments:

I’d already heard these allegations from other sources about Pat Mesiti using a Hillsong credit card to pay for Darlinghurst prostitutes and getting caught out.

What I’d like to know is were the prostitutes male or female or bisexual or did he visit all of these three options?

Also were any of the prostitutes underage? If they were, that’s pedophilia.

Pat Mesiti could verify this by posting a comment in the comments box at the bottom of this article.

I’d also like to refer the reader to my previous article about Pat Mesiti published on 24 February this year entitled, ‘Pat Mesiti. Adultery. Hillsong Youth Pastor. Youth Alive evangelist. Fell from grace and restored by Phil Pringle. How the corrupt priests of Pentecost sowed devils on each other. Part 8. Australian and New Zealand errant Pentecostal pastors who couldn’t keep it in their trousers or sexually abused little kids’.

I’ll have to upgrade this article to mention the allegation of Pat Mesiti committing adultery on a Hillsong credit card with Darlinghurst prostitutes.

I’ve heard allegations that Pat Mesiti used to go and visit Darlinghurst prostitutes, circa 2000, after preaching to thousands of innocent believing young people at Hillsong Youth Alive meetings in Sydney. My older children used to go to these meetings.

I wonder how Pat’s first wife is getting along these days?

Another article on this site, ‘Hillsong scandals and improprieties. Hillsong insider speaks out. Part two. Should Pat Mesiti ever have been a pastor again?’, published 16 October 2015.

I’ve been contacted by a high up Hillsong insider who believes that Hillsong has gone off the rails and wants to tell their story.

This article is the second in a series of articles publishing the eye-witness testimonies of this Hillsong insider.

Today I’m going to continue on from my first article on this site in the current series, ‘Hillsong scandals and improprieties. Hillsong insider speaks out. Part one. The truth about Pat Mesiti’s adulteries with prostitutes’.

To recap this is what the Hillsong insider reported to me.

Hillsong insider speaks:

“Pat Mesiti committed adultery with Darlinghurst prostitutes while he was a famous Hillsong Youth Alive pastor preaching to thousands of young people.

Pat Mesiti was caught by paying for the services of prostitutes using a Hillsong Church credit card.

Pat Mesiti had an adulterous affair, while he was married, with a young Hillsong worship leader.

He divorced his wife and married the young Hillsong worship leader who he had the affair with.

The pursuit and even harassment of young attractive women in Hillsong church by older Hillsong men and leaders is common. In fact it is part of the inner culture of Hillsong church.

My comments:

A number of questions come to mind after hearing this series of statements from the Hillsong insider.

Firstly, why hasn’t Hillsong informed us, the Body of Christ, or even it’s own members, or even the pastors in the Australian Assemblies of God movement (AoG) or even it’s own pastors at Hillsong of the facts about what Pat Mesiti did?

After all, in the years around 2000 when Pat Mesiti committed these spiritual and moral offences, Pastor Pat Mesiti, as he was known then, was by far the most prominent Christian Youth Pastor in Australia. Even I’d heard of him.

I heard of him because I had to hear from him because until 2001 I was attending the Hillsong organisation at Christian Life Centre (CLC), Waterloo, the second incarnation of Hillsong. The first incarnation was CLC Darlinghurst where I spent eight years from 1981 when we all moved across to the new building at Waterloo.

I’ve known Brian Houston since before he became a pastor. In 1981-3 a young Brian with longer hair than his current hair transplant enhanced crop and a trendy moustache, was ‘preaching up a storm’, like his old pedophile father Frank Houston did, at CLC Darlinghurst.

This was before Hillsong’s third incarnation as Hillsong Baulkhams Hills.

When a young Brian preached in say 1983, it was like twin jet engines spluttering on the tarmac. At first there was a loud roar, followed by a series of splutters and then the fuel hit the pay-load and it was all on. Seagulls scattered and a foul wind of burnt high-octane aircraft fuel poured out of the engines. The roar became unbearable and then it faded into the distance as Brian stopped preaching.

And we, the poor guinea pigs, at CLC Darlinghurst had to grin and bear it.

Pat Mesiti’s preaching is much the same. Thankfully Pat flies a smaller aircraft. But the assault on the senses, particularly the ears, is still the same. A cacophony of sounds delivered at high speed and high intensity without much content.

I don’t know if Pat Mesiti went to Bible College but if he did he didn’t listen, and he certainly didn’t attend or listen to the ethics class.

What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes?

It’s quite common in Italy, where Pat Mesiti’s ancestors came from, to visit prostitutes, even after you’re married. Decades ago, say in the 1960s and before, it was even socially acceptable in Italy to visit prostitutes and to have a mistress when you married, particularly if you were wealthy. The French still think like this, even today. It’s a European thing. And it’s become an Australian thing. The Australian sex industry and the brothel industry turns over billions of dollars annually. It has for decades.

I don’t know where Pat went and what naughty Pat did with whom?

I hope Pat used condoms, otherwise he might have Aids, HIV, another STD like gonorrhoea, or hepatitis B.

Whether Pat used a Hillsong credit card to have sex with a young woman, an older more experienced cougar, a man, a bisexual or whatever, I simply don’t know.

I’d like to think Pat visited a nice attractive top-end expensive female prostitute on that Hillsong credit card. Someone who insists her clients use condoms and washes with disinfectant between clients. I have no idea. My Hillsong insider didn’t know any more. I don’t know any more. Does anyone want to know anymore? Probably only naughty Pat Mesiti knows the full story. And he’s not telling.

I’d like to know the gender of the prostitutes, the age, how many times Pat visited prostitutes, which suburb did he go to etc etc…just the general details would be enough.

The general details would be enough.

What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong church credit card?

If a man goes to a brothel in his spare time, isn’t a Christian, isn’t a pastor, wears a condom and behaves properly, and pays for the experience out of his own hard-earned cash, that’s one thing.

But when a man is not only a Christian, but is a very prominent Youth Pastor preaching to thousands of innocent believing young people, is going to a brothel on a Church credit card wrong?

I think I just answered the question. It’s prima facie wrong. You don’t even need to open your Bible. Any average Joe or Jill non-church-goer wouldn’t support the action.

What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong church credit card when you’re a famous trusted Christian Youth evangelist preaching to thousands of innocent believing young people, including Donald Elley of Bellingen’s older children?

Everything.

So what should have happened to Pat Mesiti when he got caught having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong credit card, and cheated on his wife with a young Hillsong worship leader, at the same time? An unholy mess. And should he have been ‘restored’ by Pastor Phil Pringle, the CEO of C3 international Church, which has it’s headquarters on Sydney’s Northern Beaches?

Firstly, what should have happened to Pat Mesiti when he got caught having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong credit card, and also cheating on so wife with an young attractive female worship leader?

If I was Brian Houston, Pat Mesiti’s boss at the time, the first action I would have taken is to send Pat to a Medical Centre for an Aids/ HIV/ STD/ Hepatitis B blood and skin test. Then I would have asked the young worship leader Pat was involved with at the time to go and do the same thing. Then I would have told his wife to do the same thing. Then I would have verified whether Pat had slept with any other women besides prostitutes. If there were any I would have told them to do the same thing. Yes, it’s quite messy when we play around when we’re married, especially if we’re a prominent Christian Youth pastor and famous evangelist, and especially if it’s with prostitutes and with an attractive young Hillsong worship leader.

What does the New Testament in the Holy Bible say about famous pastors who do very public sexual sins like Pat did?

Sure King David did some bad stuff and God blessed him despite this. But he was a king and times were different back then.

Our guide book for sexual sins and the sexual sins of pastors is the New Testament.

I’m not going to do a whole Bible teaching on the subject.

The grace of God is very great, but there are very high Bible standards for pastors and teachers.

When we commit extremely serious sexual sins like Pat Mesiti did, it’s important to be honest. I think the worst thing about what Pat did is that he’s never come clean about what he did. He’s tried to cover it up, rationalise his addictive sexual sins, minimise them, and sanitise them, in the same way that his mentor, so-called Pastor Brian Houston, who is in reality not a pastor at all, more of a money-making charlatan than anything else…in the same way that so-called Pastor Brian Houston has tried to minimise and sanitise the sins of his old life-long pedophile father, Frank Houston against little boys.

The Brian Houston, Phil Pringle and Hillsong spin words for extremely serious spiritual and moral sins like pedophilia and visiting prostitutes on church credit cards is “moral failure”, “serious moral failure” or “addiction issues”.

These are the terms Brian Houston, Phil Pringle and Pat Mesiti himself have used in all communications to the Hillsong movement, C3 movement, and the media, since circa 2000, when the pedophile Frank Houston, and the then sex-addict Pat Mesiti, were both caught out for their repeated long-term sins by Hillsong. In Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong’s case, the repeated sins were lifelong pedophilia. In Pat Mesiti’s case I’m not sure how long Pat was a sex addict and whether he still struggles with that issue.

“Moral failure”, “serious moral failure” or “addiction issues”. This is the problem with Hillsong. They try to ‘spin’ their way out of everything. Lies, half-truths, reinventions, even ‘restorations’. These are the grubby circus tricks of the Houstons and those associated with them.

Was Pat Mesiti restored?

I doubt it. I can see zero evidence of it.

I don’t think Phil Pringle did anything at all to restore naughty Pat.

Pat is still the greedy man full of avarice and financial ambition that he was before the restoration, and probably worse.

Is Pat Mesiti still seeing prostitutes on church credit cards?

I hope not. His second wife, the one he was seeing behind his wife’s back, the young Hillsong worship leader, looks like a nice person.

Pat Mesiti Andrea m20

I wonder how Pat’s first wife is getting on these days.

The trouble for Pat is that the New Testament has very high standards for Christian pastors, teachers and evangelists.

As the great Apostle Paul taught, there’s a much greater standard and a much greater accountability for pastors, teachers and evangelists.

By New Testament teaching on pastors and teachers if you do what Pat Mesiti did as a famous preacher and teacher, you’re finished. Hang up the pastor hat and do something else.

It doesn’t mean you’re finished as a Christian. It may be that if you truly repent and seek the face of God, you’re only just beginning.

But as far as being a pastor is concerned, forget it. What Pat did as a famous Christian pastor is just too bad.

This is the problem with Christians today. In John G Lake’s time and Smith Wigglesworth’s time the questions I’m exploring wouldn’t have been explored. In those days it would have been simple morality math:

Being a very famous Christian Youth Pastor plus cheating on your wife plus pursuing a young Christian worship leader at your church and having sex with her behind your wife’s back plus cheating on your wife with prostitutes plus using a Church credit card to cheat on your wife with prostututes equals “You’re finished as a pastor…goodbye and goodnight”.

I’ve invited His Holy Eminence Brian…err St Pete of Hillsong, also known as Saint Copulator II, to share his thoughts about Pat Mesiti and the restoration of pastors, like he tried to do to his dad Saint Francis the rock spider pedophile.

Thank you Donald Elley, you scoundrel and heretic of old. I'm now going to outline my strategy for getting into worship in the Holy Spirit. To clarify, my name is not common old garden type Brian any more. From now on I'm pious Pete, the holy Pope of Hillsong, once in mere Darlinghurst with my dear dad and the gays, or my dear gay dad and the gays or my old pedo dad and the gays or...Bobby Bobby why am I saying theses things over and over na dover nav over and...

Saint Copulator II: “Thank you Donald Elley of Bellingen, so pleased to see you again”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “What do you think was the cause of Pat Mesiti’s adultery?” Saint Copulator II: “Now, Donald Elley of Bellingen, I didn’t say the word adultery, I said serious moral failure”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Why did you tell all the ACC churches not to share this with their congregations?” Saint Copulator II: “It’s all about the sanctity and sacredness of the holy priesthood”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Do you mean that ACC pastors are to be protected and shielded if they do something morally wrong?” St Copulator II: “We at the Holy Basilica of Hillsong have a long-standing tradition of brotherhood and godly fellowship. Some things are better kept in the Holy Temple”. Donald: “Are you aware of how Pat Mesiti’s wife is faring after the affair”. Saint Copulator II: “We have a large and caring pastoral care team. She is free to contact them any time. The number is 1800…”

I’ll now interview Holy Black Jesus about Pat Mesiti, Brian Houston, Hillsong and “Doctor Phil” Pringle.

Donald elley of bellingen:

Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Holy Black Jesus, who do you think is greater, the Holy Pontiff Saint Francis of Rome or Saint Copulator II, formerly plain old Brian Houston of Lower Hutt, New Zealand”. Holy Black Jesus: “Well, they were both poor peasants, one from South America and one from grey fibro Lower Hutt, New Zealand, who’ve made it big on the holy religious world stage. What do you think Black Madonna Momma?” Black Madonna Momma: “Saint Copulator II by a whisker. I’m a big fan of Bobbie Houston”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Holy Black Jesus, how do you feel about your holy son Pat Mesiti being restored to the ministry after being caught with his pants down?” Holy Black Jesus: “Well, if the holy parsonage Doctor Phil Pringle diagnosed Pat Mesiti as being in good spiritual health then he must be. After all Doctor Phil Pringle is a Doctor”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Holy Black Jesus, who do you think is greater, Doctor Phil Pringle or Saint Copulator II, formerly plain old Brian, the boy who used to play marbles at Lower Hutt Primary School and jump in dirty New Zealand puddles with his class-mates?” Holy Black Jesus: “Well, Doctor Phil Pringle after all is a Doctor but on the other hand, Brian has Bobbie. Come to think of it, the jury’s out on whether Bobbie is an asset or a liability. I think Doctor Phil Pringle by a whisker because he’s a Doctor”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Holy Black Madonna Momma, have you read Bobbie Houston’s book, Kingdom women love sex?” Holy Black Madonna Momma: “I’ve never heard of that book. Here in Positano Italy we only have junk tourists leave behind on the floor after they’ve taken photographs of me and my son Holy Black Jesus in this Holy Roman Church. Is it pornography?”

The Holy Spirit loves you deeply.

The Holy Spirit, the Gentle Dove of Heaven, loves you deeply.

 

Conventionally speaking and out of the greatest respect for God, if we write an adjective before or after one of God’s Names, after I did then, we should use a capital letter on the first letter of that adjective.

A small point. The benefits and wisdom with Christianity and life are in grasping and applying the detail well.

 

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.

 

In context:

Remind them of these things, and solemnly charge them in the presence of God not to wrangle about words, which is useless and leads to the ruin of the hearers. 15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. 16 But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness…

These are the types of men and woman we so need God to raise up in this generation, even if all my generation are sweep into the gutter.

 

When I think of the errant men of God who I have been writing about on this my personal blog-site since September 2012 I weep.

Literally weep.

Not feel like weeping. I weep.

 

My heart is in the greatest pain when I think about the carnage these errant men have caused.

 

I also get very angry about these men.

 

Frank Houston.

 

Pastor Frank Houston. Founder of hillsong. Extremely corrupt life-long pedophile.

Pastor Frank Houston. Founder of Hillsong. Extremely evil and corrupt life-long pedophile.

 

I started writing about Frank Houston on 13 September 2012 with my article on this site, ‘Pastor Frank Houston. part 1. Frank’s Houston’s pedophile activities’.

This article has been viewed by 16,000 people.

 

If you google ‘Frank Houston abuse’, it is the first article that will appear.

My article comes up ahead of Wikipedia, the Daily Telegraph, Sydney Morning Herald, ABC, London Daily Mail and other media.

It has been the first article if you google ‘Frank Houston abuse’ for over two years.

 

I started writing about Frank Houston, his pedophile activities and his many other faults, in September 2012 before the then Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard called the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

 

My articles were influential in the Royal Commission examining the Houstons, the ACC/ AOG and Hillsong church.

In fact Simeon Beckett, a leading Commission lawyer, quoted directly from the above article on Frank Houston when he outlined the history of the Assemblies of God and other introductory facts.

 

The Royal Commission has contacted me three times for information.

 

I introduced the Royal Commission to victim SA1 (my code name) and organised for him to give them a statement.

 

At that time in October last year, to my knowledge, no victims of Frank Houston were known to the Royal Commission in Australia apart from victim AHA from Coogee Beach, Sydney.

 

I also told them about victim WNZ1 from Wellington, New Zealand, who few people know. Only some immediate family, one pastor in New Zealand and me.

WNZ1 contacted me after reading my blog-site. The Australian Royal Commission have noted his existence.  They don’t need a statement off him because their brief is only to examine Australian cases of sexual abuse of minors (under 18’s).

 

The Royal Commission has uncovered 160,000 victims of Institutional Abuse of minors.

Staggering when you think that’s only the Institutional abuse. The problem of pedophilia is of epidemic proportions in Australia.

This man has never repented of crimes against God and man in the 1970s, including having oral sex multiple times with a series of three young church secretaries, including his right hand man’s daughter, spiritual and moral deception and trashing and dumping Queen Street AOG Auckland and running away to Perth.

 

Queen Street AOG was the largest church in Australia or New Zealand at the time.

The  greatest of sins.

Frank Houston was far worse but Neville Johnson is up there in the bad pastor dudes stakes.

Neville Johnson is still ministering from an internet site “Academy of Light’ in Perth, Western Australia, and in a teaching ministry.

Avoid Neville Johnson like the plague.

This man is still ministering and should not be.

Jim Williams is another errant New Zealand pastor who should just go fishing or do gardening for old ladies and leave the Blessed Body of Christ, God’s Precious Jewel from Heaven, alone.

 

Jim Williams followed Frank Houston as the Head of the New Zealand Assemblies of God Church (AOG).

He was the 9th General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God in New Zealand was from October 1977 – 1985, an eight year term.

Sydney James “Jim” Williams was born on 11 September 1935.

Jim Williams is a former pastor and former leader of one of the most influential churches in the Assemblies of God in New Zealand in Hamilton.

He is currently pastoring in Queensland, Australia.

Jim Williams became a published author with a work based on the book of Proverbs called “Wisdom – the missing link”, a book on handling pastoral problems.

One of the most difficult things he had to manage as General Superintendent was the fallout following the revelation of the financial and moral failure of Neville Johnson then pastor of the largest church in Australasia, the Queen Street Assembly of God.

 

Departure from New Zealand

Williams left for Australia in March 1989, the leadership of the AOG then passing to Pastor Wayne Hughes. In Australia Williams served in what was then known as the Garden City Church in Brisbane.

 

Adultery

In 1994 the Executive of the NZ AOG received a letter from the Australian Assemblies stating that Williams had been guilty of adultery while pastor at the Hamilton AOG Assembly.

Williams was replaced as Pastor of the Garden City Christian Church by his deputy Senior Pastor, Pastor Geoff Holdway. Pastor Holdway differed from Williams charismatic style by focusing on a more fundamental adherence and teaching of scripture. This was based on his background in the Baptist theological seminary with a much more Pentecostal emphasis on scriptural interpretation.

At this time Williams was pastoring in Australia.

He lost his Australian credentials, but these were eventually returned after a time of counseling.

However he remained barred from ministry in the NZ AOG due to a failure to make any efforts to put the matter right in New Zealand.

In 2000 it became apparent that the extent of his sexual impropriety was much greater than admitted to the Australian body.

His credentials in New Zealand were permanently revoked for adulterous offences and other indiscretions involving different women over an extended period of years.

Following this the Hamilton Assembly (Gateway Christian Centre) left the denomination.

 

Current Ministry

Jim Williams is no longer associated with the Assemblies of God in Australia, and is now pastoring a church The House of Praise in Springwood, Queensland.

Here is an article published in the Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) on 4 August 2007. 

 

The writer David Marr is a gay man who writes for the SMH and who is interested in subjects like religion and organisations like Hillsong.

The first part of the article is about Tanya Levin’s book. Tanya is an ex-Hillsong lady who is now an atheist and a Hillsong watch type person.

Information about Peter Laughton, Frank Houston’s former young worship leader is in the second part of the article.

Peter Laughton was staying as a boarder with Frank Houston and his wife Hazel when the abuse occurred.

Although Peter was in his 20s he feels Frank Houston, who was 60, took advantage of him and abused him.

Tanya Levins

August 4, 2007

When a former member of the Hillsong congregation started asking hard questions, she was thrown out,

By the miracle of YouTube, we can take a helicopter ride over Sydney any time we like with Pastor Brian Houston as he lays out Hillsong’s Vision 2007. In a voice that has coaxed fortunes from the faithful, he talks prosperity, vision, growth and God’s strategy as the helicopter swoops down on the “beautiful piece of property” Hillsong bought last year in inner-city Rosebery for $28 million.

“I think the finances are where we’re going to have to have the greatest faith.”

His confidence is absolute that the mortgage will soon be paid. To a sceptical outsider, Houston looks oddly like Spike Milligan with cans on his ears and a microphone to his mouth as he looks down on the suburbs where Hillsong’s “state-of-the-art worship centres” are booming already or will soon be delivering the goods for Christ. He shrugs off ridicule. The nation’s most triumphant preacher lives in a world without doubt and without dissent.

“Jesus said a house divided against itself cannot stand,” Houston reminds the thousands who have viewed this film clip and left adoring messages behind. (“Please come to Sweden! We need ‘fire’ here!!!!!!!!!”) Authority is a big deal at Hillsong. You don’t mess with Brian or his wife, Bobbie. “The great strength of our church has always been our unity. A single vision is critical to where we’re going.”

So Tanya Levin is a problem. She asks questions. She wants explanations. She challenges the vision of Hillsong’s leadership. In short, she’s trouble.

Two years into writing People in Glass Houses, her insider’s account of Hillsong, she was finally – and literally – shown the door. “There is no debate within Hillsong,” she says. “That’s fundamentalism. It’s not open to free thought and question, not at all.”

The church wasn’t answering her emails about the book. Houston had ignored her calls. She defied orders not to turn up at the Castle Hill “campus”, until the night came when two security guards carried her from the church and “a very tall, handsome Maori man of about 24” called Dion walked her to her car.

“I cried at Dion,” she writes. “I told him about my dad, and faithfulness and loyalty … whatever kind of Hollywood angel he was dressed as that night, there would come a time when he would outlive the usefulness to the Firm. And then he would lose that simple genuine look he stared at me with. I told him to go home and read his Bible and go ask the preachers why it doesn’t match what they say. He listened like one does to the ravings of a lunatic and I made him listen because that’s his job.”

It was the end of a long affair that began when Levin was 14, the daughter of a banker and his Jewish wife who were brought to God by Billy Graham back in South Africa. The family turned up in the early days of what was to become the behemoth of Hillsong.

“My impressions in September of 1985 were of a bunch of nice people,” Levin writes. They waved their hands and spoke in tongues. Houston preached. “Even today,” she confesses, “when I hear Brian Houston’s voice I feel better.”

People in Glass Houses is a naked account of the joys of religious infatuation and the messy business of re-entering the real world as an adult five years down the track.

Levin fitted the Hillsong pattern perfectly: “There is a 50 per cent turnover every five years. Hillsong is renowned for having a very big back door.” The churning of people through the church is not something they talk about. “Or they say people don’t have the faith to hang on; they’re unable to take it through the tough times. It’s always the fault of the person. It’s never the fault of Hillsong.”

But the ties were deep. University and then a child took her away from the Hills for a decade. She returned as a single mother with a job as a social worker in a Salvation Army women’s refuge and something more than curiosity about the fate of her old church and the friends she still had there. “I’d go sporadically just to have a look.”

Rumours of scandal sharpened her interest. After one hugely popular pastor was expelled in 2001, Levin began asking questions about Brian Houston’s father, Frank – a preacher so powerful he was thought to be able to raise the dead – who was being accused on the internet of pedophilia. But Hillsong was in the dark.

Brian and Bobbie won a standing ovation from the congregation when they finally broke the news that old Frank had an unwavering love of God and deeply repented his moral failings. His crimes were not named that day. Levin was furious: “I had a near-irresistible urge to yell out like the boys used to do in the old days, ‘What did he DO, Brian?’ ”

Levin was asking questions again, this time to write this book. Frank was not her target. She set herself the task of explaining the inner workings of the most successful religious operation in Australia: the joy and despair of faith; the mass hypnosis of worship; the Jesus-centric remedies offered in Hillsong’s outreach programs for drug addiction, domestic violence, unemployment and homosexuality; the ideological submission of women; and the bleeding of money from the faithful.

Levin’s family is among the financial casualties of Hillsong. They’re out of the church now after more than 20 years and her mother’s sardonic joke is that People in Glass Houses might earn a little of their money back. Hillsong’s 19,000 members are expected to tithe – give a 10th of their income to the church – and make big donations on top of that. Levin wrote the book as a warning: “The intention was to tell people, ‘Hey, by the way, they’re taking your money.’ ”

A couple of years ago, Brian Houston boasted on ABC television that Hillsong’s income for the financial year 2004-2005 was $50 million. It’s tax-free, of course. Accounts are never published. Year after year, Hillsong’s music arm has albums high in the charts. When All of the Above faded after many months this year, Saviour King took its place. The earnings are enormous but the begging bowl is always out.

“It’s a corporate organisation being run by corporately trained people to achieve economic outcomes,” Levin says. “Economic outcomes are the new measure of spiritual success and sign of blessing. The fact that Brian Houston is driving a Harley is a sign that God is looking upon him favourably.”

For Levin, the core lie of Hillsong is the claim that God will repay everything you give. And the longer you have to wait, the greater the return. “How do you actually stand in front of people and say if you give me your money God will give it back to you – and actually sleep at night when you’re taking old people’s money? It’s obviously the more desperate people who want to make an investment decision like that. Very vulnerable people.”

Four or five years ago Levin typed “ex born again Christian” into Google and found that “from Sweden to Nevada and back again there were people with the same story”. They are welcomed into a small, warm, friendly congregation with one or two charismatic preachers. But a few years later they’re out the door: “Kicked out and told they are the work of the devil.”

That early friendliness is part of the big sell. “They don’t preach against much. There’s a new movement that’s come through America called Seeker Sensitive – in other words we want people who come into our church to feel comfortable. And we want to be sensitive to their needs. So we won’t say anything too outrageous and we’ll tone the whole thing down.”

But tough rules – often about sex – are waiting to be enforced. “Painted into a corner, they’re explicitly homophobic, but up to that point they don’t want to be seen as an unfriendly, judgmental place. They want to be seen as warm, inclusive, loving, embracing. But they’re not. They are of their own kind: if you’re in the system and you behave accordingly, the system will reward you.”

Levin thought that with so many casualties of the system around, writing the book would be easy. “What I found – and what other media have found – is that it’s almost impossible to get other people to come forward and talk about this. People will write things on websites, they will send emails: ‘I’ve been through this, I’ve done this, I can help you, I know these things, I am the voice of expertise.’ Then they disappear again because it’s too painful and it’s too confrontational.”

Hillsong won’t comment on the result.

“We have no control over what people decide to say and write,” Brian Houston says. “We keep our focus on helping people with hope in Jesus Christ.”

But Levin has a fair idea what they’re thinking out in the Hills. “Bobbie Houston announced at the Colour Your World conference in 2005 that there the only three types of media about Hillsong. They are the positive, the neutral and the anti-Christ.”

Levin doesn’t fit that picture. She doesn’t hate. Something in her seems to yearn for those exhilarating years fighting the good fight against the devil in all his disguises right down to the voodoo beat of rock’n’roll. “We were told you can’t have it because it’s incantation and you’re going to raise all these demons.” How different things are now. Levin begins to sing some Hillsong Christian trance music: “Doof, doof, doof. Christ is the future. Doof doof doof …”

Is she entirely free of the place? If Houston rang today and asked her to dinner, would she go?

“Yes, very much so. My main aim is to keep the dialogue open. To encourage questions. To encourage debate. And when somebody or a group of people make you feel like family for a number of years, it’s difficult to shake that feeling even when reality tells you something different, and when relationships break down. Go do dinner with Brian?” She laughs. “It would be nice.”

 

A fallen leader of faith

FRANK HOUSTON was a charismatic preacher and a sick man. He won famous souls for Hillsong – jockey Darren Beadman was one of his scalps – and sexually abused young men.

He was about 60 when he undertook to cure 23-year-old Peter Laughton’s homosexuality. “My counselling sessions by the senior minister were nothing more than sexual abuse disguised in the form of the need of a father’s love and discipline,” Laughton says. “Through my naivety, I endured the naked beatings, the eternal bum caresses and masturbating into bottles, among other things.”

Laughton was training to be a pastor. He says the abuse continued for about four years until 1984. “I look at it now and think, ‘God, I was really naive to fall for that.’ ” And believing himself cured, he married.

Laughton’s faith went first. He tells the Herald that before leaving the church in the early 1990s he gave an account to another pastor of the abusive therapy he’d received. But as far as Laughton is aware, no action was taken against the old man until he was forced into retirement by his son Brian after an allegation of pedophilia emerged in about 2000.

Houston denies categorically knowing of any claims of sexual abuse by his father before this time. He initiated a church investigation, which saw the old preacher’s credentials permanently removed. “I was completely devastated by the realisation that my father had hurt people in this way, and I believed it related to events more than 30 years before when he was a New Zealand credentialled pastor. Until recently I knew nothing of Peter’s claims.”

Laughton took a long time to come to grips with his sexuality. He’s now a university lecturer in his early 50s who finds it in himself to forgive Frank Houston. “Despite all his downfallings I think he was genuinely a good person. It is an important part but it still is only one aspect of a person’s life. I’ve come through the other side and appreciated how this man was trapped like many of us were in a system and in a place where you couldn’t really even talk about what you were struggling with.”

Burying his father in 2004, Houston declared him a man who made mistakes but a preacher “in a class of his own”.

My comments:

From 1981 to 1990 I was involved at Christian Life Centre, Darlinghurst, which is now called Hillsong Church.

Frank Houston was the head pastor and the founder of Hillsong Church in 1977.

He came over from New Zealand, in the guise of church planting, but he was really a crafty old pedophile who felt the noose tightening on his pedophilia activities which he’d been doing for decades in New Zealand, while at the same time being a very prominent AOG pastor.

Frank Houston is a devil, a son of lucifer of old, who preyed on and molested little boys, teens and older men all his life.

 

On this site you’ll find over 100 articles on Frank Houston, his pedophilia, his very corrupt son Brian Houston, Hillsong Church, the Australian Christian Churches which was until 2009 called the Australian Assemblies of God (AOG), the New Zealand Assemblies of God and errant Pentecostal pastors in Australia and New Zealand.

For a summary of Frank Houston’s pedophile history please read my article on this site, ‘Pastor Frank Houston, Part one. Frank Houston’s pedophile activities’, published on 9 September 2012.

 

Peter Laughton was the young Worship Pastor at Christian Life Centre, Darlinghurst in the early 1980s.

There is no way possible anyone at Christian Life Centre, Darlinghurst could have known what Frank Houston and Peter Laughton were up to. I’d heard allegations of Frank Houston’s pedophilia back in New Zealand and I always had a half-eye on him in this respect but you’d never have picked it

Trevor King was the Music Director.

In 1981 Brian Houston wasn’t a pastor. He was extremely ambitious and very pushy. He wanted to go places and make it big. Its a pity he didn’t get born again properly, receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, deal with his lust for money and power, get deliverance and get a godly foundation in his life of truth, honesty and good morals before he set out to conquer the world for his Jesus.

 

Brian Houston’s Jesus is no closer to the Lord Jesus Christ of the New Testament than some statue of the black Jesus in Southern Italy with its holy red heart open to mankind.

Let’s hear from the great man himself

 

Thank you Donald Elley of Bellingen, my old builder pal from Darlinghurst days and now my greatest holy heretic.

Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Welcome to my blog site again Your Most Holy Parsonage”. Saint Copulator II: “Thank you Donald Elley of Bellingen, my old holy comrade from Darlinghurst days and now my greatest most holy heretic”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Your Eminence, have you read my article about Peter Laughton and the eternal bum caresses?” Saint Copulator II: “Hahaha..hahaha..you’re cracking me up Donald Elley of Bellingen..haha..hell-ova-holy hyisssssteriacal half bred hares…hahaah”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “What’s so funny? Share the joke”. Saint Copulator II: “Hahaha…holy haha..I just can’t believe Peter Laughton fell for dad’s old tricks”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Do you mean you knew your father holy saint Francis was like that?” Saint Copulator: “Eternal bum caresses. How did Peter Laughton think that was going to heal him and make him feel like he had a dad..haha..holy haha”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “But this is a serious subject. Peter Laughton felt abused”. Saint Copulator II: “Bobby Bobby fair eternal virgin of the night. Where is my black Jesus that I bought in Positano?”. Bobby: “In your private chapel along with the pictures of your blessed father saint francis, your mother Hazel dear and the myriad golden candles burning 24/7″. Saint Copulator II: “How’d you feel about trying what Peter Laughton and dad were doing”. Bobby: “Bugger off Brian…I’ve had enough of your black Jesuses, your golden candlesticks and your kinky fetishes”.

 

ACC 1

 

Australian Christian Churches (ACC) pastors and members should remove Hillsong Church from being part of the ACC movement.

The Australian Christian Churches was known as the Australian Assemblies of God (AOG) until Pastor Brian Houston renamed it in 2007.

The ACC is a Pentecostal movement and Hillsong isn’t Pentecostal in any way.

None of the core Pentecostal doctrines of the great International Assemblies of God Movement, of which the ACC is a part, are practiced at Hillsong Church.

The ACC website explains the ACC Church as follows:

WHO WE ARE

AUSTRALIAN CHRISTIAN CHURCHES is a movement of Pentecostal Churches in voluntary cooperation. Each individual church is self-governing, but commits itself to work together with other churches in the movement for the purpose of mutual support and the spread of the gospel in Australia and the world.

The Assemblies of God in Australia was formed in 1937 and has experienced consistent growth. It adopted a new name of Australian Christian Churches in 2007 and currently consists of over 1,000 churches with over 280,000 constituents, making it the largest Pentecostal movement in Australia.

In our churches you’ll find vibrant, contemporary Christians who love the Lord Jesus Christ and express that love in lively praise and worship and in caring relationships. Australian Christian Churches are Bible-loving, evangelical and Pentecostal, and are about connecting people to Jesus Christ.

 

OUR HISTORY

THE AUSTRALIAN CHRISTIAN CHURCHES (formerly called Assemblies of God in Australia) was formed in 1937, and is unique among Christian movements in the world in that we are unable to trace our origins to any human leader.

Australian Pentecostalism in the early decades of the 20th century was greatly influenced by such figures as Mrs. Janet Lancaster, AC Valdez, Smith Wigglesworth, C L Greenwood and P B Duncan but none of these were individually responsible for the formation of the Assemblies of God in Australia.

The Assemblies of God in Australia formed out of a conference of the Assemblies of God – Queensland and the Pentecostal Church of Australia in Sydney, Easter 1937. It was recognised by the leaders of both movements that a more harmonious, co-operative and unified relationship was needed. C.L Greenwood was elected the first Chairman of the Assemblies of God in Australia and every state was granted autonomy in its own affairs as was each registered assembly.

In the early years of the movement growth was very slow but firm foundations were set in place. In 1948 the Commonwealth Bible College was established in order to train men and women for ministry. Various leaders also arose to bring leadership and direction to the movement such as Henry Wiggins, Philip Duncan, Edward Irish, James Wallace, Alec Davidson and Ralph Read.

In 1977, when Pastor Andrew Evans became the General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God in Australia, the movement experienced great growth, multiplying by over 13 times in the number of members and adherents and planting over 700 churches.

In May 1997 Pastor Brian Houston was elected the new National President of the Assemblies of God in Australia, and under his leadership, the movement continued to grow and expand its influence into the 21st century. It was renamed the Australian Christian Churches in April 2007.

Pastor Wayne Alcorn was elected the new National President by the National Conference in April 2009. Today, the ACC represents over 1,000 churches and more than 280,000 believers across Australia.

 

My comments:

The ACC Constitution published on the ACC website acc.org.au is a lengthy document.

The ACC Doctrines are outlined in Article 4.

I’ll publish Article 4 and then comment on the Pentecostal doctrines which Hillsong don’t teach and practice.

DOCTRINAL BASIS

 

The Holy Scriptures, known as the Bible, is the inspired Word of God and our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice.

These articles of faith of the Australian Christian Churches, grounded in these scriptures, are given as a basis for belief, fellowship and ministry “that we all preach the same thing” (1 Corinthians 1:10). Let it be remembered, however, that this is not given as a summary of the complete revelation of biblical truth, only that it covers our present needs as to these fundamental doctrines.

 

4.1 The Eternal Godhead

We believe in the unity of the true and living God who is the eternal, self-existent one, who has revealed himself as one being in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and who is the Creator and preserver of things visible and invisible (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Psalm 86:9-10; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28.19, Mark 12:29; John 1:1-3).

4.2 The Lord Jesus Christ

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the second person of the triune Godhead, who was and is the eternal Son of God; that he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary.

We believe in his sinless life, miraculous ministry, substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, glorious ascension, and abiding intercession (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 24:39; Acts 1:9; 2:22; 10:38; Romans 8:34; 1 Corinthians 15:4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 4:8-10; Hebrews 7:25-26; 9:12; 1 Peter 2:22).

4.3 The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the triune Godhead, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, and is ever present and active in the work of convicting and regenerating the sinner, and sanctifying and guiding the believer into all truth (John 14:26; 16:8-11; Romans 8:14; 1 Peter 1:2).

4.4 The Holy Scriptures

We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, namely the Old and New Testaments in their original writings. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is infallible, inerrantly revealing the will of God concerning us all in all things necessary to our salvation, and is absolutely supreme and sufficient in authority in all matters of faith and conduct. The Bible does not simply contain the Word of God, but is, in reality, the complete revelation and very Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, so that whatever is not contained therein is not to be enjoined as an article of faith (Matthew 5:17-18; 24:35; John 4:39; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21).

4.5 The Devil

We believe in the personality of the devil, who, by his influence, brought about the downfall of man, and now seeks to destroy the faith of every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ

(Genesis 3:1-15; Matthew 4:1-11; Luke 4:1-13; John 13:2; James 4:7; 1 Peter 5:8).

4.6 The Fall of Man

We believe that man was created by God by specific immediate act and in his image and likeness, morally upright and perfect, but fell by voluntary transgression.

Consequently, all men are separated from original righteousness, being depraved and without spiritual life (Genesis 1:26-31; 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21).

4.7 The Atonement

We believe that God’s answer to man’s sinful state is in the death of his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, on the cross, whose sufferings and shed blood have made full atonement for the sins of the whole world, both original and actual, and that there is no other ground for salvation (2 Corinthians 5:18-21; Galatians 1:4; Ephesians 1:7; Colossians 1:14; Hebrews 9:25-26; 1 Peter 1:19-20).

4.8 Salvation of Man

We believe that salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. This experience is also known as the new birth and is an instantaneous and complete operation of the Holy Spirit whereby the believing sinner is regenerated, justified, and adopted into the family of God and becomes a new creation in Christ Jesus and heir of eternal life (Titus 2:11; 3:5-7; 1 Peter 1:23; 1 John 5:1).

4.9 The Church

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfilment of its great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the general assembly and church of the first-born whose names are written in heaven (Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:22; Hebrews 12:23).

4.10 Water Baptism

We believe that baptism, by single immersion, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, is enjoined on all who have repented and have believed in Christ as Saviour and Lord, and that it is symbolic of our identification with Christ in his death, burial and resurrection (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47-48; 2:38-39; Romans 6:4-5; Colossians 2:12).

4.11 The Lord’s Supper

We believe that the Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements of bread and the fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4); a memorial of his sufferings and death (1 Corinthians 11:26); and a prophecy of his second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers “until He comes” (Matthew 26:26-28; Luke 22:1520; Acts 20:7).

4.12 Sanctification

We believe that sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God. We believe it is the glorious provision for every believer in Christ to be made pure in heart and wholly sanctified, through the operation of the Holy Spirit, by the blood of Jesus and the Word of God (John 17:15-19; Acts 15:8-9; Romans 12:1-2; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-4; 5:23-24; Hebrews 2:11; 10:16-19).

4.13 The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is the bestowing of the believer with power to be an effective witness for Christ. This experience is distinct from, and subsequent to, the new birth; is received by faith, and is accompanied by the manifestation of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, as the initial evidence (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-5, 8; 2:1-4; 8:15-19; 11:14-17; 19:1-7).

4.14 Gifts

We believe in the present day operation of the nine supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit, as recorded in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10. We also believe in the ministry gifts of Christ, as recorded in Ephesians 4:11-13.

4.15 Divine Healing

In accordance with the teachings of the scriptures, we trust our heavenly Father to protect and heal our bodies from sickness and disease. We believe that divine healing for the body, as with all redemptive blessings of God, has been provided for us by the atoning death and victorious resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is the privilege of all believers and it is appropriated by faith in our heavenly Father’s unfailing promises (Exodus 15:26; Psalms 103:3; Isaiah 53:4; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; 1 Peter 2:24; James 5:14-15).

4.16 The Second Coming of Christ

We believe in the premillennial, imminent and personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ to gather his people to himself. Having this glorious hope and earnest expectation, we purify ourselves, even as he is pure, so that we may be ready to meet him when he comes. (John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2 Thessalonians 2:1; Titus 2:13; James 5:7-8; 1 John 2:28; 3:2-3).

4.17 The Millennium

We believe in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to set up his millennial reign on this earth (Psalm 11; 96:10-13; Daniel 7.22; Zechariah 14:5; Revelation 5:9-10; 20:1-10).

4.18 The Punishment of the Wicked

We believe in the everlasting punishment of the wicked (in the sense of eternal torment) who wilfully reject and despise the love of God manifested in the great sacrifice of his only Son on the cross for their salvation (Matthew 25:46; 13:49-50; Luke 12:47-48; Romans 6:23; 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9; Revelation 20:11-15).

We believe that the devil and his angels and whoever is not found written in the book of life shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Revelation 19:20; 20:10-15).

4.19 The New Heavens and the New Earth

“We, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells” (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation chapters 21-22).

4.20 Creation

We believe that the heavens and earth and all original life forms, including humanity, were made by the specific immediate creative acts of God as described in the account of origins presented in Genesis, and that all biological changes which have occurred since creation are limited to variation within each species.

 

My comments:

The following Doctrines are not taught and practiced by Hillsong Church.

4.12 Sanctification

We believe that sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God. We believe it is the glorious provision for every believer in Christ to be made pure in heart and wholly sanctified, through the operation of the Holy Spirit, by the blood of Jesus and the Word of God (John 17:15-19; Acts 15:8-9; Romans 12:1-2; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-4; 5:23-24; Hebrews 2:11; 10:16-19).

The Pentecostal/ ACC doctrines not taught and practiced by Hillsong Church with my comments:

The following doctrines aren’t taught and practiced by Brian Houston and Hillsong Church.

Sanctification

4.12 Sanctification

“We believe that sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God. We believe it is the glorious provision for every believer in Christ to be made pure in heart and wholly sanctified, through the operation of the Holy Spirit, by the blood of Jesus and the Word of God (John 17:15-19; Acts 15:8-9; Romans 12:1-2; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-4; 5:23-24; Hebrews 2:11; 10:16-19)”.

This Doctrine is not taught and practiced at Hillsong Church.

Hillsong is a great Apostate Church who allow homosexuals in positions of leadership. For example for five years until recently Josh Canfield has been a worship leader at Hillsong New York City, even though he is an open practicing homosexual who lives with his boyfriend Reed.

Josh Canfield and Reed his male live-in partner host a Hillsong home Bible study group in their New York apartment.

There are many open gays attending Hillsong including in the choir and other positions of service to the Lord in Hillsong New York City and Hillsong Los Angeles.

Brian Houston smokes cigars. He openly shared about this from the Hillsong pulpit in Sydney.

It has been reported that Brian Houston likes excessive amounts of alcohol. This should be investigated.

Brian Houston has a very bad temper. He has punched Hillsong church walls in anger and punched a man he was unhappy with in the Hillsong church car park.

Hillsong City Church shows no compassion for the local Aboriginal community and treats them with disdain and harshly. Sometimes they are roughly man-handled by Hillsong pastors and security in Hillsong City Church premises. The worst perpetrator of this is Pastor Steve McGhie, Brian Houston’s brother-in-law.

Brian Houston, Bobbie Houston, and other prominent Hillsong and ACC leaders sheltered the pedophile Frank Houston from the Australian Police and Authorities for five years from 1999 to 2004. They have been recommended for prosecution by the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

Brian and Bobbie Houston should resign or be stood down until this situation is clarified and fully resolved with the Australian Government.

 

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

4.13 The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

“We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is the bestowing of the believer with power to be an effective witness for Christ. This experience is distinct from, and subsequent to, the new birth; is received by faith, and is accompanied by the manifestation of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance, as the initial evidence (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-5, 8; 2:1-4; 8:15-19; 11:14-17; 19:1-7)”.

The doctrine of The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is not taught and practiced at Hillsong.

In 2000 Brian Houston shut down all Pentecostal practices associated with the Holy Spirit and His power at all Hillsong Churches.

This situation should be investigated and Hillsong Church removed as an ACC and International Assemblies of God Church.

 

The gifts of the Holy Spirit

4.14 Gifts

We believe in the present day operation of the nine supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit, as recorded in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10. We also believe in the ministry gifts of Christ, as recorded in Ephesians 4:11-13.

Hillsong does not teach and practice the “operation of the nine supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit”.

This should be investigated and Hillsong Church removed as an ACC Church.

 

Divine Healing

4.15 Divine Healing

In accordance with the teachings of the scriptures, we trust our heavenly Father to protect and heal our bodies from sickness and disease. We believe that divine healing for the body, as with all redemptive blessings of God, has been provided for us by the atoning death and victorious resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ; it is the privilege of all believers and it is appropriated by faith in our heavenly Father’s unfailing promises (Exodus 15:26; Psalms 103:3; Isaiah 53:4; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; 1 Peter 2:24; James 5:14-15).

This doctrine is not taught or practiced at Hillsong.

 

Recommendation:

Hillsong should be investigated and then excluded from the fellowship of the Australian Christian Churches and the International Assemblies of God for the above stated reasons.

Beverly Houston, Brian Houston’s sister: “Donald (who ever you are) give me a call”

 

The following remarkable and highly insightful comments by Beverly Houston, Pastor Brian Houston, the current head pastor of Hillsong Global’s, sister, were made on 16 December 2014.

 

Blog article of 17.12.2014.

Beverly Houston got angry last night about me and my articles about her dad Pastor Frank Houston, self-confessed pedophile and her brother, Pastor Brian Houston, pedophile shelterer and protector, and rejector of his father’s numerous boy victims.

I think Beverly might have been on the house-wife’s sweet remedy (again).

Last time Beverly got angry she let fly with another batch of comments.

The Houston sisters can get quite fiery.

This time Beverly wrote numerous comments on my blog site.

 

Here they all are published unedited:

Beverly Houston’s comment about my article written on 7 October 2012, “Pastor Frank Houston. Part 2. Pedophile. Frank’s Jackyl and Hyde persona”.

Hope you are all enjoying your witch hunt of Brian Houston, it is not going to help victims of my father. Get real you grow up to think your father is an awesome person and then you find out all this, it takes years to comprehend it. I don’t believe in God but if I did I think you would be all condemned to hell. Think somewhere in the bible it talks about the log in your eye!! You can condemn Brian all you like but I guess at the end of the day he has been a victim of his father too and as sad as I feel for AHA, attacking Brian is not really going to help him heal. I think maybe he should be looking at his mothers position on this!! Very sad.

I don’t have much to say about Peter Lawton, except very different situation, he was a consenting adult!!

 

Hope you are all enjoying your witch hunt of Brian Houston

Beverly Houston’s comment about my article written on 20 September 2014, “Hillsong. Brian Houston. Part one. Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse. Hillsong and Pastor Brian Houston’s spin and cover up over his father Pastor Frank Houston’s eleven or more pedophile and homosexuality victims over four plus decades”.

Hey Donald (who ever you are) just want you to know you are an awesome fuck wit. Are you getting some notoriety out of this, can’t see how in any way this is of help to victims of my father. I do not believe in God, but if I did I would see you as the biggest hypocrite out. You should do some research in to Stan Carter, I have childhood memories!!! Condeming/jailing Brian is not going to help victims, and yes as a family member we are victims too!! Can you imagine the father you looked up to did this, it takes a long time to believe and accept it and yes we feel very sad for AHA but unfortunately his misplaced anger at Brian is not going to help him heal, should have done it before my father had dimensia and made him face up to his own sins, sorry it’s a witch hunt, they weren’t Brian’s sins!!! Just want to say your a hero!!

Hey Donald, and another thought is, don’t you think ‘Rose has a lot to answer for, because I’m god dam sure if my kids said they were molested by someone I would check it out!! I feel very sorry for AHA, I remember him, but he hasn’t tried to track any of us, unfortunately I go by the name of Houston and I’ve never heard from him, if I did I (like Brian) would do any thing to try and help him, I don’t have any money but would try in other ways!! Hate the way you are trying to make my family pay for the sins of our father, Brian included and yes we have all suffered post traumatic syndrome, not that you would understand that cause you are HELPING down trodden people, your awesome!!

Yes apparently my father was a pedophile and for that I feel very sad, but you know what, we were children (including Brian) and yes it has taken us some time to realise these accusations are true because we loved and adored him, but when I read these messages, even though I don’t believe in God I find it amazing the witch hunt on Brian and just want to say you are all amazing christians and I think this is an amazing witch hunt and why is it that this Donald (who ever he may be ) never reported it sooner and maybe could have protected someone, just saying!!! Moron!

 

just saying!!! Moron!

And don’t fucking say to me Brian won’t pay etc etc. Did he commit these crimes, no he didn’t and he is like the rest of my family trying to come to terms with it it. Get a life as much as I feel sorry for AHA we are suffering to, ask him has he tortured his mother over her disgusting response, put that in the media,absolutely disgusting!! So over this!

 

And don’t fucking say to me Brian won’t pay etc etc

And don’t fucking say to me Brian won’t pay etc etc

 

Beverly Houston’s comment no 4 about my article written on 30 October 2014, “Hillsong. Pastor Brian Houston. Part 33. Honouring victim SA1 the first South Australian boy victim of Pastor Frank Houston’s abuse”.

Brian didn’t try to hide anything, he actually didn’t know, just like all my family and amazingly other people knew (NZ AOG) but you know it’s the usual witch hunt, but you are all amazing christians and when you go to heaven I’m sure you will score brownie points for this. and do you really think AHA will be healed by demonising Brian, I don’t think so, he wasn’t the perpetrator and AHA was 7-12yrs old and Brian has a very different memory of it believe it or not, but he like the rest of my family have no desire to protect our father from the terrible things he did. I am so over this shit Donald that you are portraying Brian as not wanting to pay victims (even though they weren’t his victims), the royal commission is nothing to do with compensation, another one of your attention seeking tactics. Just want to remind everyone that you knew about it before we did and let it go on and now you are trying to make my family look bad, god bless you your awesome I’m sure you will score a very high seat in heaven for being a wanker!! Call me.

 

I’m sure you will score a very high seat in heaven for being a wanker!! Call me.

I’m sure you will score a very high seat in heaven for being a wanker!! Call me.

 

My comments:

Beverly supplied me with her mobile phone number. I’ll bear it in mind. If I ever feel like calling someone to be abused.

It’s always a pleasure to have Beverly Houston as a guest on my blog site. Her comments became less coherent, but more passionate as the sauce bit in. But that’s OK. Anytime Beverly. It was nice to hear from you again.

I’d now like to have Beverly’s virtuous brother Brian on this blog-site.

They split up in March this year after many years together. They were engaged to be married at Hillsong NYC and head pastors Carl Lentz and Joel Houston supported their relationship. Josh: “Our relationship isn’t yet consummated”. Whatever that means…Thank for sharing that with the world Josh. Josh and Reed also hosted a Hillsong NYC Bible study group in their apartment. They were planning to marry at Hillsong NYC this year. Head pastor of Hillsong Global Brian Houston told the media this year, “Gay marriage at Hillsong is inevitable in the near future”.

Hillsong's gospel of greed and avarice.

Hillsong’s gospel of greed and avarice. Hillsong and Bobbie and Brian Houston: “Shaking under the power of the mighty dollar.”

 

I’ve been contacted by a high up Hillsong insider who believes that Hillsong has gone off the rails and wants to tell their story.

This article is the 13th in a series of articles publishing the eye-witness testimonies of this Hillsong insider.

Today I’m going to take extracts from each of the first five articles in this series, and then make overall comments about them.

 

Five Extracts:

Part one: ‘Pat Mesiti’s adultery with a young Hillsong worship leader and with prostitutes’.

 

pat mesiti1114b_pro

 

Pat Mesiti confesses: “I was a sex addict”.

 

Hillsong Insider speaks:

“Pat Mesiti committed adultery with Darlinghurst prostitutes while he was a famous Hillsong Youth Alive pastor preaching to thousands of young people.

Pat Mesiti was caught by paying for the services of prostitutes using a Hillsong Church credit card.

Pat Mesiti had an adulterous affair, while he was married, with a young Hillsong worship leader.

He divorced his wife and married the young Hillsong worship leader who he had the affair with.

The pursuit and even harassment of young attractive women in Hillsong church by older Hillsong men and leaders is common. In fact it is part of the inner culture of Hillsong church”.

 

"Pastor" Pat Mesiti convicted wife basher going to court a couple of weeks ago. Convicted of common assault. Due in Parramatta Court Sydney on 23 March for sentencing.

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti of Hillsong Global Church and C3 Global,Church. Close friends of head pastors Brian Houston and Phil Pringle the head pastors of these two Australian-based mega-churches. Convicted wife basher going to court earlier this year. Convicted of common assault. His second wife Andrea divorced Pat this year for seeing other women behind her back including prostitiutes. Pat’s excuse is always, “I’m a sex addict” This has been going on for 16 years but Brian Houston and Phil Pringle keep pardoning Pat and letting him back in as a pastor. the damage Pat has caused to women all over Australia is incredible but Brian Houston and Phil Pringle don’t think of that. Instead they look after their own.

 

 

Part two: ‘My questions to do with Pat Mesiti’s adultery with a young Hillsong worship leader and with prostitutes’.

My comments on Pat Mesiti’s adulteries with prostitutes and a young worship leader, his current wife no 2:

My questions raised in part two of this series of articles asking various questions about the above information from the Hillsong insider about Pat Mesiti.

“Firstly, why hasn’t Hillsong informed us, the Body of Christ, or even its own members, or even the pastors in the Australian Assemblies of God movement (AoG) or even its own pastors at Hillsong of the facts about what Pat Mesiti did?”

“What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes?”

“What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong church credit card?”

“But when a man is not only a Christian, but is a very prominent Youth Pastor preaching to thousands of innocent believing young people, is going to a brothel on a Church credit card wrong?”

“What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong church credit card when you’re a famous trusted Christian Youth evangelist preaching to thousands of innocent believing young people, including Donald Elley of Bellingen’s older children?”

“So what should have happened to Pat Mesiti when he got caught having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong credit card, and cheated on his wife with a young Hillsong worship leader, at the same time? An unholy mess. And should he have been ‘restored’ by Pastor Phil Pringle, the CEO of C3 international Church, which has it’s headquarters on Sydney’s Northern Beaches?”

“Firstly, what should have happened to Pat Mesiti when he got caught having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong credit card, and also cheating on so wife with a young attractive female worship leader?”

“What does the New Testament in the Holy Bible say about famous pastors who do very public sexual sins like Pat did?”

 

Part three: ‘The day a lesbian was roughed up by Hillsong pastors and thrown out the Hillsong door’.

 

Lesbians

Lesbians: Should Hillsong Church Pastors rough up lesbians and toss them out the Hillsong door?

 

Hillsong Insider speaks:

“In 2005 Hillsong City pastors, Pastor Steve McGhie and Pastor Darren, manhandled and abused a young lady at Hillsong City Church, who was gay. She was told, “your type is not needed here at Hillsong”.

She was sitting on the floor of the Hillsong City Church front foyer, with her back to the wall. This incident took place as the church sermon was going on. Pastor Brian Houston was preaching. It was at the 5pm service.

Steve McGhie and Pastor Darren spoke to her, and in her defence, after being told “a lesbian is gay and not needed here at Hillsong”, they went to grab her and manhandle her to the front door.

The lady at this time was sitting on the floor. As the pastors tried to get hold of her, by extreme rough handling, she said, “Please stop, you are hurting me”.

Pastor Steve McGhie and Pastor Darren were saying, “It’s time to go lady lover”.

She slapped the pastor so hard that the crack was heard inside the auditorium.

The two pastors gave this women no rights of removal under the act, and twisting her limbs behind her back, they pulled her up. She was yelling abuse at the pastors. She was taken outside and then thrown to the ground outside the door. By this stage she was a crying mess and she was bleeding a little. She would have gotten bruising after all this rough handling. I didn’t see her return.

This was one incident where the reports were shredded or never made. This lady was acting in self-defence. Yes the lady was gay, but this was plain bullying and rough handling, whatever you like to call it.

I saw this all happen and did not a thing. I was told by Steve McGhie and Pastor Darren, “It’s not your place, we will handle it”.

The security team can be very rough, and they can be very aggressive, doing pay-back and stuff like that. They can be very aggressive in protecting Hillsong and throwing out dissenters like this poor lesbian who got shown the door. They also spy on people and track them. For example Tanya Levin, the Hillsong watch lady”.

 

Part four. Extract one. ‘The Hillsong culture: Bullying, intimidation, fear and cult-like activities’.

Pastor Steve McGhie

Pastor Steve McGhie. Great White Hunter. Bully. No Christian heart of compassion. Tough guy. Hates Australian Aborigines and tosses them out the Hillsong door. Also tosses gays out the Hillsong door. I have some more Steve McGhie stories…watch this space.

 

Hillsong Insider speaks:

“All Hillsong leaders and Hillsong security have photographs of Tanya Levin. Hillsong can’t stand Tanya Levin.

Whenever Hillsong leaders or Hillsong security spot Tanya Levin near a Hillsong event or a Hillsong church, Hillsong security goes into overdrive. Photographs of her and what she is wearing go out to every Hillsong Security staff member and to every Hillsong church leader in Australia.

If Hillsong knows a dissenter is out and about, Hillsong security will send someone to track their every move. They do this to Tanya Levin every time.

They watch what Tanya does, who she speaks to and it all goes into a report. Hillsong pastors go and talk to anyone Tanya has spoken to, to get information on what the conversation was about, and then the Hillsong church member who spoke to Tanya gets a debrief and a warning about her.

Hillsong Security leadership teaches teams of people how to do this and how to pass on sightings and write Hillsong security reports.

The Hillsong Head of Security reports to Pastor Steve McGhie, Pastor Brian Houston’s brother-in-law, who is Brian’s fix-it man and henchman.

 

Part four. Extract two: Pastor Brian Houston has a bad temper.

 

Pastor Brian Houston

Pastor Brian Houston. Has a foul temper.

 

Hillsong Insider speaks:

Pastor Brian Houston has a bad temper. Once he was in a hurry, running late, and the lifts at Hillsong were too slow. Brian lost it and punched a hole in a gyprock wall adjacent the lifts.

In his mind Brian Houston acts and thinks like, “I’m the great Brian Houston”.

 

Part five: ‘The Marks of the Hillsong Church Culture: mate-ship, money, amorality and poor Christian moral ethics’.

 

Joel Houston. Spiritually corrupt. Part of a spiritually bankrupt dynasty. The grandson of a lifelong pedophile. The son of a pedophile protector. Up to his gills in Hillsong money scams. Milking the Blessed Body of Christ of every cent they can get their grubby hands on.

Joel Houston. Brian Houston’s son. Frank Houston’s grandson. Spiritually corrupt. Part of a spiritually bankrupt dynasty. The grandson of a lifelong pedophile. The son of a pedophile protector. Up to his gills in Hillsong money scams. Milking the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Blessed Body of Christ, of every cent they can get their grubby Houston hands on.

 

Hillsong Insider speaks:

“Pastor Steve McGhie and his wife Judith (Brian Houston’s sister) are the most corrupt people in the Hillsong church.

Steve McGhie has a hatred towards Aboriginals. He treats them badly and has rough-handled them at times, when they’ve misbehaved inside Hillsong premises at Waterloo. (Hillsong City Campus).

Pastor Joel A’Bell, formerly a Hillsong Youth Pastor, and now head of Hillsong Australia, is a snake. He’ll be nice to you and stab you in the back. Pastor Joel A’Bell has a love of power”.

It’s all ‘jobs for the boys’ at Hillsong. An “if you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” culture, where morality and ethics take a second place.

Mateship and nepotism are the currency of the Hillsong culture. This culture revolves around money and finance. Pastor Joel Houston, Pastor Bobbie and Brian Houston’s eldest son, before he became prominent in the Hillsong Youth Band, and later become co-pastor at Hillsong New York City, had a printing business. He was given all of Hillsong’s printing business which is massive. This is blatant shameless nepotism.
There was a big fallout between Darlene Zschech and Pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston before Darlene and her husband Mark left Hillsong to form their own church on the Central Coast, an hour north of Sydney. Darlene didn’t want the high rock and roll Hillsong was getting into under its Hillsong Alive band run by Pastor Joel Houston. Darlene wanted worship to be more worshipful and she wanted to be there for the people. Pastor Brian Houston is led by money not love for people. Pastor Brian Houston, his wife Bobbie and his son Joel wanted the high rock and roll. Now Hillsong has to beg and scrap to Darlene if they want her to sing, because they want to trade on her name still in their promotions by having her sing occasionally for them.

In respect to Bobbie Houston, Pastor Brian Houston’s wife, I don’t know how Brian puts up with her. She’s just a nag. Bobbie is a princess who can do whatever she wants. In fact at one Colour Conference she said, “This is my conference and I’ll do whatever I like”. Who pays for Bobbie’s cosmetic surgery? Hillsong does.

Hillsong is just corporate now. It’s about business, business, business. It’s a job for the full-time staff rather than a Christian ministry of heart-felt service, like the Lord Jesus Christ wanted the Church of Jesus to be.

Joel Houston is a bit of a fool. Joel’s best mate made out he had terminal cancer and achieved fame throughout Australia for it. His name is Michael Guglielmucci. Then he was found out to have lied about it.

Joel is out for fame. I knew Brian’s kids in the pram. All the Houston kids are power-mad. All their spouses married into money.

Joel Houston has an immense sense of entitlement. Joel’s attitude is “I’m in Hillsong. I’m Brian Houston’s son”.

All the young Hillsong City church pastors have homes and apartments in the beach-side Eastern Suburbs of Sydney bought with Hillsong church financial assistance. If they need money to buy an apartment, cash gets put into their account to help them get the loan, and then it is moved out once the loan is approved. All the young pastors at the Hillsong City Church get helped in ways like this. It’s “jobs for the boys”. Hillsong Bible College teaching is all about the Hillsong business and about milking the system.

Brian Houston has a very bad temper. His overall attitude is “I’m the great Brian Houston”. Bobbie and Brian Houston live a life of luxury and excess.

“Hillsong keeps records on members, just like a cult”.

 

My comments:

The writer Donald Elley of Bellingen

The writer Donald Elley of Bellingen

 

These extracts from the first five articles in this series demonstrate that “The spirit that is on Hillsong isn’t the Holy Spirit”.

In the late 1990s I returned to Hillsong City Campus. It was called Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney in those days, which is the third name for Hillsong. The first name was Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst, known as CLC Darlinghurst or CLC Darlo for short. Australian’s shorten many words. ‘Darlo’ for Darlinghurst, ‘arvo’ for afternoon, ‘smoko’ for morning tea, ‘see ya’ for “I’ll see you later” or “goodbye”, and so on. ‘Pedo’ for pedophile seems to be an oft used term in relationship to Hillsong these days.

Pastor Frank Houston, the self-confessed life-long “pedo” or pedophile, Brian Houston’s father, founded Hillsong in Sydney’s eastern suburbs in 1977.

Brian and Bobbie Houston joined him soon after as did Ian Carlisle and Maureen, one of Brian’s three sisters and her first husband. Later about 1990, Steve McGhie and Judith, Brian’s youngest sister, migrated to Sydney from New Zealand to join them all.

Brian and Bobbie Houston have three children. Joel, Ben and Laura.

Wikipedia

Brian Houston

edit: The Wikipedia article about ‘Brian Houston’ and ‘Hillsong Church’ reads like they were written by Hillsong. In fact, Hillsong has a large and very busy PR, IT and Security department who ensure everything about Hillsong on the internet and social media that Hillsong can control is carefully manipulated and manicured exactly how they want it.

 

Wikipedia. Brian Houston:

‘Brian and Bobbie Houston’s home is in the suburb of Glenhaven, Sydney.

Houston’s three grown children, Joel, Ben, and Laura. Ben and Laura currently live in Sydney.

Joel is married to Esther, they have a son. Joel is a musician, a songwriter, and Hillsong Church’s creative director. As of 2010, he co-pastors Hillsong New York with Carl Lentz.

Ben is married to Lucille and they are the Lead Pastors of Hillsong Los Angeles. They have three daughters.

Laura married Peter Toganivalu in 2008, and they have one daughter and one son. Laura, along with her husband Peter are pastors of the senior high youth ministry Wildlife. Laura also oversees the youth music/worship ministry known as ‘Young and Free’. Previously she was involved with the church communications team, which included overseeing artwork and design’.

 

My comments:

So all three Houston children, Joel, Ben, and Laura, are ‘in the ministry’. One might add, ‘in Hillsong ministry’.

The Houstons are very dynastic like a lot of other high profile and extremely wealthy Australian families. Take the Packers or the Murdochs for example. Gretel and James Packer, the two children of Kerry Packer, have recently split their inheritance in two. Lachlan, James and Elizabeth Murdoch, the children of Rupert Murdoch from his first marriage, and his primary heirs, are all working for, and looked after, by Rupert Murdoch and News Corporation.

So it runs with the Houstons. They’re all ‘in the ministry’. They’re all looked after by mummy and daddy. They all have luxury apartments in Bondi, personally owned in tax-free Hillsong church trust accounts to avoid capital gains and other taxes.

The Houstons had better be careful with their clever tax avoidance tricks, or the Australian Taxation Department may do another  audit of them, just as they did recently with the Obeids, another Sydney dynastic family.

What has also been passed on and inherited from momma and papa Houston, as the Hillsong crowd like to affectionately called them, or Bobbie and Brian Houston, as we know them, are their bad habits and personal demons.

Bobbie, a self-proclaimed princess of note, a self-confessed sex addict like Pat Mesiti, except, to my knowledge, she restricts her passions to Brian. Botox queen. “A nag” to Brian, according to the eye-witness observation of the Hillsong Insider. Loves luxury clothes, the jet-set lifestyle, holidays at plush European hotels paid for by Hillsong, botox, breast lifts, nips and tuck- all paid for by Hillsong tithes. Princess mentality. The Hillsong insider says that Bobbie Houston’s ego is out-of-control. That she has mega tickets on herself. That Bobbie is a complete princess who always gets her way around Hillsong Church.

 

Bobbie Houston. Married into a very corrupt family.

Bobbie Houston. Mrs Brian Houston. Botox Queen. Self-proclaimed princess. In on all the scams of Hillsong Church.

 

Brian, the King or Pope of Hillsong, who rules with an iron fist but he can’t control his physical and spiritual children. What wealthy man can control his children when they become free-wheeling wealthy adults? It’s a recipe for disaster: wealth, entitlement and freedom and no Holy Spirit to help keep things Biblical and in order.

 

Saint Copulator II, otherwise known as Saint Petropoulos of Hillsong Baulkham Hills or Pope Pete for short. Never call him Brian or he won't answer.

Brian. The Pope of Hillsong.

 

Take this comment on this site by a man Rob on 13 March 2013:

“All of Frank Houston’s children think they’re royalty. They all covet wealth, lavish lifestyles, and fame. Strange, you’d think they would realise the scriptures speak against all of those things, but they think they’re above the rules that apply to the peasants, after all, they’re the “special ones”. Short sighted, when you consider eternity…..”

In the late 1990s I returned to Hillsong City Campus. It was called CLC Sydney in those days. One Wednesday night I went to a worship service at Hillsong Baulkham Hills, in their current premise. I felt what I thought was a very strong anointing but it was dark and it didn’t feel right.

Friends, what I was sensing wasn’t the Holy Spirit.

At Hillsong there is a very strong anointing, but it’s not the Blessed Holy Spirit of the Lord Jesus. It’s something else.

The spirit over Hillsong churches world-wide is earthly sensual and devilish. It’s from below. it’s from the pit of hell. It was conceived in the womb of satan, injected supernaturally into the founder of Hillsong, Frank Houston, at an early age. He was born in 1922 the same year as the greatest Holy Spirit Revival in Wellington, New Zealand led by one of the greatest healing evangelist of all time, Smith Wigglesworth.

 

A History of the Charismatic Movements in New Zealand, by James E. Worsfold p112-114

NEW ZEALAND May-June 1922

EVANGELIST WIGGLESWORTH MINISTERS IN WELLINGTON

Smith-Wigglesworth. One of the greats who has gone before us

Smith-Wigglesworth. One of the greats who has gone before us.

 

My comments:

Smith Wigglesworth was at the prime of his ministry at the time. The heavens opened and the Holy Spirit came down. The meetings ended up in the Wellington Town Hall and there were amazing miracles night after night. The whole city was set alight.

After this mighty revival four men were born who would wreck the fruits of Smith Wigglesworth’s Holy Spirit Revival in New Zealand.

These were Frank Houston, Neville Johnson, Ian Bilby and Jim Williams.

 

Frank Houston. Born April 22, 1922, New Zealand.

Note: 1922 was the year of this Holy Spirit Revival brought to New Zealand by Smith Wigglesworth.

In other words, Lucifer of old counter-sowed the Wellington, New Zealand Revival with the birth of Frank Houston, followed by the birth of a collection of other deviates who were destined to lead the new Zealand and later Australian Assemblies of God movements.

Smith Wigglesworth was known as God’s Apostle of Faith. He ministered in the Elim and Assemblies of God denominations, but he remained independent of any denomination.

These are the errant corrupt men who the devil used to counter-sow the New Zealand Revival in Wellington.

 

Pastor Frank houston, Brian's dad. Lifelong secret pedophile. Eyes as black as Hades.

Pastor Frank Houston. Founder of Hillsong. Brian Houston’s dad. Lifelong secret pedophile. Eyes as black as Hades.

 

Frank Houston. Life-long secret pedophile and homosexual.

Head of the New Zealand AoG and later the Australian AoG for decades.

Only exposed as a lifelong secret pedophile and banned when he was 77 in 1998/ 1999.

Died in November 2004.

The pedophile Frank Houston, who used the Christian ministry as a foil and disguise, sexually abused 200 to 400 boys and some teens over his whole lifetime from when he was a teen.

Preferred victims: young innocent boys aged 7 to 12.

Frank Houston never got jail time because his son, Pastor Brian Houston, current CEO of Hillsong International, didn’t report him to the police and sheltered him for five years until his death.

These are criminal offences under New South Wales and Australian laws.

Brian is waiting to see if he will be criminally charged with these offences. If convicted he could be sent to jail. In fact this is likely.

 

Simeon Beckett, the barrister for Hillsong’s time at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has recommended to the NSW Attorney General’s Department that Brian Houston be criminally charged with these offences.

 

Pastor Jim Williams with his long-suffering wife

Pastor Jim Williams with his long-suffering wife Betty. Jim Williams. Pedophile. Adulterer. A Fraud. Possible part of a pedophile ring with Frank Houston. They definitely helped each other and protected each other. They must have known the other was a deviate.

 

Jim Williams. Serial adulterer and secret pedophile.

Born 11 September 1935, New Zealand. Serial adulterer and secret pedophile.

Caroline Andrews commented on this site recently that Jim Williams, who died in June this year, was a pedophile who sexual abused her when she was an innocent trusting tender 12 years old.

Jim Williams sexually abused her for three years when she was only 12 and he was 25. At the time he was an AoG Youth pastor in Heathmont, Victoria, Australia,  Jim Williams sexually abused her close friend and two other girls too.

In 1977 Jim Williams succeeded Frank Houston as Superintendent of the New Zealand Assemblies of God.

When Jim Williams moved to Australia Brian Houston when Head of the Australian Assemblies of God, publicly welcomed him.

Jim Williams was banned from ever ministering again by both the Australian and New Zealand Assemblies of God for serial adultery offences.

Undeterred he founded House of Praise, Springwood, Queensland, Australia and continued ministering until his death in June this year.

 

Neville Johnson. Liked oral sex with church secretaries.

Pastor Neville Johnson. Serial adulterer. Still operating as a false prophet today.

Born in the 1940s in Sutherland England.

Serial adulterer with a succession of three church secretaries in the 1970s to early 1980s.

By his adulterous actions, cover-ups and lies, and his absence of remorse, he destroyed the largest Pentecostal church in Australia and New Zealand at the time. That is, Queen Street Assemblies of God in Auckland, New Zealand.

Neville Johnson’s current ministry is the Academy of Light based in Perth, Western Australia. Avoid and shun this man at all costs.

 

Ian Bilby. Serial adulterer. 10-20 affairs while married and a prominent Elim church pastor in New Zealand.

“I was a member of the AOG church in Heathmont when Jim Williams was in charge of our young peoples group.I had given my heart to the Lord at the age of 10 and just after my 12th birthday in 1960, Jim williams started to mollest me and this went on for over 3 years. He taught me to be secretive and when I was questioned at the age of thirteen, I only admitted to him kissing me as I was embarrassed in front of my mother. Years later at the age of 33 I found out that he had abused my twin sister and two other young girls at the time. This abuse has had a profound affect on my life. As he took away my childhood, and affected my education as all I could think about was him. I regret that I was never interested in my school life. I am still very secretive, and I have issues that I am only good for one thing in life and that is to please a man. I have no self-esteem. My marriage collapsed when my husband found out about the sexual abuse as I had never told him. Also my love of God is non-existant and I do not believe in a loving God any more. It took me half my life to realise the affects of his abuse on my life. He should have gone to jail as he was in simple terms a paedophile of the worst kind. About twenty years ago, he was made to sign a letter of apology to my sister and myself, but when it was delivered to us, we were not allowed to read it until we promised that it would be burnt straight away. This letter was not signed, neither was it a proper apology as all he said was that he would pray for our healing. What a joke. My sister has spent half her life in the care of psychiatrists and I have been on anti-depressants for half of mine. I will never get over what he did to me and it is a life sentence for me. That is all I have to say. Caroline Andrews nee Orr”.

 

My comments:

Heathmont is in Victoria, Australia.

Hillsong is an organisation which was birthed by satanic forces as a counter-sowing to the greatest New Zealand Revival by Smith Wigglesworth in Wellington, New Zealand in 1922. The satanic vessel for this false organisation was the life-long secret pedophile Frank Houston.

By an Eyewitness – Pastor Harry V. Roberts (Summary)

Smith Wigglesworth.

 

New Zealand’s greatest revival started in China, where a missionary, Mr. J. Fullerton, was shown by the Holy Spirit that God was about to pour out his Holy Spirit on New Zealand. Mr. Fullerton took a trip to his own country, Denmark, where he met Smith Wigglesworth. Mr. Fullerton told Smith Wigglesworth of what God had showed him. Smith Wigglesworth prayed about it and God showed that he should visit New Zealand.

Smith Wigglesworth’s first address, “The Enduement of Power and The Gifts of the Spirit” was delivered in the Sunday school hall of the Vivian Street Baptist Church, Wellington. The address showed that the Holy Spirit is a real person and is promised to all believers. We have the right to ask the Holy Spirit to live within us and have no victory over sin without it. The numbers at these morning meetings increased very rapidly and the meetings had to be moved to the main church, which was also too small! It was at one of these meetings that the phenomenon of Tongues was heard. It was peculiar how many people were immediately against tongues without knowing anything about it. These prejudices disappeared as soon as the interpretations came forth. The interpretations were awe-inspiring and soundly scriptural.

Miraculous healings took place, as deformed and diseased children were prayed for. One gaunt consumptive man, who had been entirely given up on as a hopeless case, was carried in. He was in a coma, but after prayer, he arose full of vigor and walked with his head up, out of the church, healed!

Evening meetings were held in the Wellington town hall. The crowds grew from 800, to 1600, to 3000 on the third night. From then onwards, people had to be turned away each night. At least 1000 could not gain admittance on one of the nights. Smith Wigglesworth preached mainly on Divine healing, his keywords were “ONLY BELIEVE”.

Wellington Town Hall was where evangelist Smith Wigglesworth was used to heal scores of people and lead them to salvation in 1922

The capital city’s morning newspaper, The Dominion, dated 31/5/1922 reports:

FAITH HEALING – EXTRAORDINARY SCENES
AT TOWN HALL – THE DEAF MADE TO HEAR

To heal the sick by Divine influence is no new claim, although to actually witness the process of cure being carried out in this work-a-day world has attracted big audiences to the Town Hall this week, a very large gathering being present at last night’s demonstration.

The Yorkshire evangelist, Mr Smith-Wigglesworth, is conducting the proceedings, and, except that he anoints with oil the real process of healing is carried out by faith itself. The evening commences with a religious service, including prayers and hymns, after which the demonstration of healing is given.

Last night about two hundred persons of both sexes presented themselves for treatment, but the evangelist was only able to deal with fifty of them, the other cases being postponed till to-night.

Those in search of relief comprised cripples (many of whom were able to throw away their crutches and sticks immediately); others, with goitre, rheumatism, partial blindness, deafness, and various forms of affliction. Quite a large percentage claimed that they were cured or relieved by the Divine faith poured into them by the evangelist. To particularise: A woman of middle age, who was crippled with rheumatism, demonstrated her cure by walking across the flood; stutterers were almost instantly made to repeat the Lord’s Prayer without stuttering; young women with necks swollen with goitre professed to be cured, and certainly the swellings in some cases disappeared or were reduced in size; an old man of 80 years, partially blind, said his sight had been improved; and numbers afflicted with pains of one sort and another declared that they were freed from their sufferings. There were failure, of course, due, perhaps, to lack of faith, or possibly the sufferers were incurable.

Some of the people healed described their experience in sworn affidavits. These affidavits were sworn before Mr. C.A. Baker, JP. The author did not have authority to publish names, the names have therefore been omitted.

Mr. ____, of Wellington, dairyman, declared that for three years he suffered from chronic gastritis and paralysis of both legs from hip downwards and could only drag along with crutches, caused by some spinal misery and drudgery. “On Sunday, the 4th June,” he proceeds, “I attended the Town Hall on crutches; I saw others being healed and believed that God would heal me. I went forward, Mr. Wigglesworth laid his hands on me, one of the workers anointed me with oil, Mr. Wigglesworth told me to walk. I handed him my crutches and walked home. I felt as the healing came as if a tight pair of stockings was being removed from my legs. I have been improving in health ever since the 4th June. For 14 years I have had a cyst on the back of my neck and have often spoken to the doctors about removing it. They did not seem anxious to cut it. The cyst increased in size till it was as large as an ordinary hen’s egg. The next morning, after my healing, when I awoke, I found that the cyst had completely disappeared.” “Declared at Wellington this 20th day of June, 1922”.

Mrs. ____ declares that over three years ago the varicose veins in her leg broke. “I was twice in the hospital”. She adds. “The rest in the hospital did the leg good, but when I came out and used the leg the veins burst open. The last time at the hospital the doctor cut the veins out of the inside of the leg; an ulcer formed on the outside of the left leg. I had to walk with a stick and could only limp. The pain was intense. I went to the Town Hall. Mr. Smith-Wigglesworth prayed over me, I had the faith that Jesus would heal me.

The pain ceased and has not returned. I was able to drop my stick and I ran up to tell my mother I was healed and again able to catch the car.

Now my leg is sound and well and the ulcer is daily healing and I praise God for his goodness to me. Now I am able to wash and do my own housework.

Before, I had always to have help with the housework.” “Declared at Wellington this day 23rd June, 1922”.

Mrs. ____ of Wellington, declares that her son Ronald (Aged 11 years) broke his arm about 5 years ago. It was badly set and was a trifle shorter than the other, and he could not bend his arm back. She took the boy to the Town Hall and now her boy’s arms are both the same length and the arm that was broken will now bend right back, and can touch his shoulder. Previous to this she had his arm massaged for fully twelve months without any benefit. This lady declares that her daughter Mavis, who suffered from adenoids, was also completely healed and has no trouble with her breathing since.
This declaration was made on June 20.

Miss. ____ declares that for fourteen years she suffered with her eyes – the right eye was turned right in and she always wore glasses to correct the sight. Dr. ____ said she would always require to wear them: “I went to the Town Hall”, she adds, “The second Sunday of the Mission, the 4th June. I had been several times previously to carefully note the proceedings. I have been a Christian since I was 9 years old and was sure that Christ would heal my sight. Mr. Wigglesworth placed his hands on my eyes and at once the right eye was straight. I did not again put on my glasses and each day the sight became stronger and now my eyes are both strong and my sight is splendid”.
“Declared at Wellington, this 21st day of June”.

The healing results of the Campaign were very remarkable; and taking the scores of written testimonies, it would not be an exaggeration to say that at least seventy-five per cent of those who came forward were definitely healed’.

 

My comments:

“New Zealand’s greatest revival started in China, where a missionary, Mr. J. Fullerton, was shown by the Holy Spirit that God was about to pour out his Holy Spirit on New Zealand”.

Satanic forces counter-sowed all the good work of this great New Zealand Revival, as they always do.

One of the satanic seeds that was sown at exactly the same time, in the same year, 1922, as this great New Zealand Revival was in the soul of the founder Frank Houston. Frank Houston was born in 1922.

Satan has birthed second and third generations of Houstons, including Frank Houston’s grandson Joel Houston, co-pastor of the very errant Hillsong New York City, Frank Houston’s grandson Ben Houston, the pastor of Hillsong Los Angeles and Brian Houston, Frank Houston’s second son.

Frank Houston’s first son Graeme has always refused to go to church. I believe Frank Houston, the out-of-control pedophile, especially in the 1960s to 1970s, sexually abused both his sons, Graeme and Brian, and maybe his many grandsons too.

Brian Houston married Bobbie Houston, who is a spiritual child of Pastor Neville Johnson, the highly corrupt former pastor of Queen Street Assemblies of God, Auckland, New Zealand in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Neville Johnson is still ministering today, especially in Perth Western Australian, and also in Great Britain, where he was born.

Be warned that man Pastor Neville Johnson is a false prophet. Don’t believe a single word he says. Shun him and avoid him at all costs like the plague. Two men have also written on this site that Neville Johnson has defrauded and cheated them in the past decade, of large sums of money in Ponzi schemes.

So here we have it. A sordid messy trail of destruction wrecked across the New Zealand and Australian Pentecostal scenes by a series of very corrupt Heads of the Assemblies of God and Elim denominations, culminating in the ongoing work and destruction of Christendom by the extremely errant Hillsong organisation.

Note of 6 September 2016

Pastor Brian Houston the current head pastor of Hillsong mega-church is to face pedophile protection charges soon.

I have edited the article below reflecting current up to date information.

 

This article outlines the history of Pastor Frank Houston the founder of Hillsong’s secret sexual abuse of hundreds of little boys, pre-teens and teens over five or more decades, possibly for 70 years if you include his grandchildren and ‘rent boys’ (underage male prostitutes). 

This site is the most authoritative and comprehensive site on Hillsong corruption, Houston corruption and Hillsong pedophilia.

 

This article and its updates

This article was first published on this site on 9 September 2012 prior to the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

It has been updated since as more facts have come to light and more events have unfolded.

 

Note written on Friday 27 May 2016

I have come to the conclusion from the evidence I’ve compiled over many years and from my experience from 1981 to 2000 as an attender of Hillsong, in the 1980s as a senior lay pastor, and especially since hearing boy victim AHA’s testimony, that the Frank Houston was a lifelong secret pedophile who used the Christian ministry to access little boys and young teens.

In 2000 the pedophile Frank Houston age 60 embarked on a four year homosexual affair with his young 20 year old worship leader Peter Laughton.

Involvement with a 20 year old male was an exception although there is evidence of countless masked homosexual encounters over Frank Houston’s whole lifetime with males over the age of homosexual consent which is 18 in most Western countries.

Brian Houston. Has been recommended by the Australian Royal Commission to be charged with pedophile protection crimes.

 

Pastor Brian Houston the current head of Hillsong Church has been recommended for prosecution for pedophile protection crimes

In October 2015 the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in its Findings recommended Pastor Brian Houston the current head of Hillsong Church be charged with pedophile protection crimes.

Pastor Brian Houston and his Hillsong and Australian Christian Churches leadership mates conspired to shelter Brian’s father, the lifelong pedophile Frank Houston, from the NSW Police.

 

Note written on 19 October 2014:

In early October 2014, The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse examined the Australian Assemblies of God (which has a new name of Australian Christian Churches), Hillsong and Pastors Frank and Brian Houston. 

If you are interested in down-loading the Royal Commission transcripts, testimonies of victims and other relevant documents go to http://www.childabuseroyalcommission.gov.au.

To read a series of my blog articles on the Royal Commission on this site, they start on 20 September 2014 with “Hillsong. Pastor Brian Houston. Part One. Royal Commission…”

You can then scroll a few articles further into October 2014 and you’ll see all the articles sequentially in chronological order on “Hillsong. Pastor Brian Houston…” and Royal Commission stuff.

If you know of any pedophile cases involving Pastor Frank Houston at any time anywhere in the world then please send me a message and I’ll email you back so we can confidentially talk about your case by email. No information will be published without your consent.

The following blog article on Pastor Frank Houston’s pedophile activities was written on 13 September 2012 and it has been updated regularly as new information becomes available.

 

Blog article of 13 September 2012 (updated 6 September 2016)

 

The pedophile Frank Houston was the founder of Hillsong

Pastor Frank Houston was the founder of Hillsong Church in Australia. Hillsong is by far Australia’s largest church numbering 15,000 in Australia. Its headquarters are in Baulkham Hills in Western Sydney.

It has Churches throughout the world in twenty locations. Hillsong claims 30,000 in its network world-wide.

 

Brian Houston 20

 

Pastor Frank Houston was for decades the Head of, firstly the New Zealand, and later a prominent leader in the Australian AOG (Assemblies of God) denominations. By the time he confessed to secret pedophile crimes at age 79 he was revered across the Australian and New Zealand Assemblies of God movements. The truth is he was a rotten pedophile all that time- for many decades- probably since he teens.

 

The Assemblies of God (AOG)

The Assemblies of God (AOG) is a Protestant denomination which started in the early 20th century in America and has spread across the planet. Its emphasis is on the Holy Spirit and the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit, like faith, healing and speaking in tongues.

 

The Protestants

A Protestant denomination is a denomination (international church organisation) whose origins are in “Protesting” against the Church of Rome.

Protesting, often at the greatest risk to their lives, against the Roman Catholic Church’s errant doctrines, its power, its Popes, its Bishops, its mercenary Jesuits of old- and its domination and blood-letting and martyrdom of true believers throughout the world- for over 1700 years until modern times.

If you think I’m exaggerating then google “The Waldenses” who were Protestants the Church of Rome genocided in parts of France in the 16th century or “The Covenanters” who the Church of Rome hunted and wiped out in 17th century Scotland.

The Jesuit mercenaries and Papist rulers of England desecrated their bodies after death and threw their corpses on rubbish tips as a warning to a fearful populace.

These were brave men who gave their lives for the cause of Christ.

Unlike Frank Houston, who was a secret life-long pedophile and covert homosexual, whose coal-black dark secrets which weren’t exposed until the last years of his life.

Frank Houston’s confession to being a lifelong secret pedophile

A two-year investigation of pedophile allegations going back to the 1960s, ordered by his own son, Pastor Brian Houston, and conducted by a prominent Australian AOG clergy, Pastor John Lewis, found that the allegations were true. Frank Houston was banned for life from ever ministering in the AOG in Australia and New Zealand in December 1999 aged 77.

Frank Houston’s life ended in shame in November 2004. He spent his last days contemplating his place in Eternity. The burdens of his dark secrets were troubling his mind until the end. How would God treat him in the Hereafter? These were among many questions which plagued his dark and long-time fully corrupt mind as he faced death’s days. For from the evidence Frank Houston had been a pedophile since his early teens- a period of seventy years.

I knew Frank Houston personally

This blog article is the first in a series of articles in which I will recall information, reflections and personal feelings on this gifted, strange and very tortured man, who I knew very well for two decades. Or at least I thought I did.

I worked closely with Frank through the decade of the 1980s as a builder doing building fit-out and renovations for Christian Life Centre (CLC), Darlinghurst, as Hillsong was known in the early days.

I was also a prominent and successful lay leader with ten home fellowship groups under my care, which I pioneered in the challenging Inner City of Sydney. I attended CLC again for a few years in the mid to late 1990s. I was there when Pastor Frank Houston got stood down and the whole organisation changed its name from Christian Life Centre to Hillsong in 2000.

I should add that I was a strong Christian prior to first attending Hillsong in 1981. This may have kept me safe from allowing Frank Houston to do stuff like lay hands on me in prayer. A highly dangerous event in hindsight for anyone.

 

Pastor Brian Houston, and others like Pastor Jonathan Wilson, who is now pastoring in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, have tried to sanitise and re-invent Pastor Frank Houston’s life and legacy

Pastor Jonathan Wilson. An ignorant and highly narcissistic man. Fits in well and Hillsong.

 

Pastor Brian Houston, and others like Pastor Jonathan Wilson, who is now pastoring in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, but has strong links with Brian still, have tried to sanitise and re-invent Pastor Frank Houston’s life and legacy.

The reality is that no amount of spin and re-invention can remove the dark black stains of the seven decades long trail of pedophile, masked homosexual, homosexual and homo-erotic activity that so-called “Pastor” Frank Houston, a complete fallen evil deviate, engaged in.

 

Pastor Brian Houston

The fourteen boy and young teen known victims

In all I have counted fourteen or more victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s pedophile homosexual desires and actions.

Everyone closely associated with this matter senses there are a lot more victims out there.

From the evidence there are over 400 boy, pre-teen and teen victims. Many will not remember the incidents due to psychological defence mechanisms because of the trauma of the sexual abuse event(s).

Plus there would be, from the evidence, over 1000 victims of masked homosexual and pedophile abuse.

 

Frank Houston: “I was very active as a pedophile in the 1960s and 1970s.”

Pastor Frank Houston, from his own mouth near his death, said to his own son, Pastor Brian Houston, “I was very active as a pedophile at that time”. He was referring to the period from 1960 to 1975, when he was in his 40s to 50s when all the known 12 boy and 2 teen victims were sexually abused by him.

 

Pastor Frank Houston was doing pedophile activities all his life

I believe Pastor Frank Houston was doing pedophile activities all his life from his early teens.

He got kicked out of the New Zealand Salvation Army in the 1950s. He was a Captain. I believe it was for pedophilia.

Does anyone have any evidence on this? Can anyone talk to the New Zealand Salvation Army?

Frank Houston was a Salvation Army Captain in Auckland, New Zealand.

It was so long ago and I doubt if Salvation Army records about his dismissal accurately reflected what transpired, if they still exist, which is unlikely. What organisation except Hillsong would still love its founder? Only a very corrupt one and I know of no other church organisation as corrupt as Hillsong from head to basement where dead boys bones line the walls and are scattered on the ground (metaphorically speaking for the benefit of Hillsong lawyers who read this blog-site in addition to Hillsong hackers- the Hillsong IT techs who hack and harass for their Prosperity gospel fake Jesus).

 

Pastor Frank Houston was a criminal pedophile who used the Christian pastor’s ministry as a foil, disguise and camouflage in order to gain the confidence and trust of innocent believing Christian families so he could access their children undetected for the purposes of sexually abusing them

Pastor Frank Houston was a criminal pedophile who used the Christian pastor’s ministry as a foil, disguise and camouflage in order to gain the confidence and trust of innocent believing Christian families so he could access their children undetected for the purposes of sexually abusing them.

Pastor Frank Houston was never genuine in anything he did. He mocked us all. How could a man be a genuine Christian pastor when he was secretly a life-long hardened criminal pedophile? Its not possible.

 

Boy victim AHA

The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse on 7 October 2014 at a Hearing in Sydney revealed a witness AHA, who was abused in the Sydney suburb of Coogee when he was an innocent little boy aged 7 to 12 years old, in the late 1960s and 1970s.

Boy victim AHA was brave enough to testify anonymously in person.

It made me cry.

It was real bad stuff indeed.

It made me very angry, particularly since Pastor Brian Houston, the son of Pastor Frank Houston, like Pilate in the Bible who washed his hands of responsibility for Jesus prior to his death, has washed his hands of responsibility to help and care for the boy and teen victims of his dad’s abuse, who are now in their 50s and early 60s.

If you go to my blog articles starting on Tuesday 7 October 2014, you’ll find all the horrific details of Pastor Frank Houston’s abuse of victim AHA including genitalia fondling, digital anal penetration, masturbation of the victim as he reached early puberty, and Frank Houston using and getting the victim to pleasure him over a period of five years.

My source is AHA’s testimony on Day One of the Royal Commission’s examination of Hillsong, where AHA spoke for most of the day.

Its tragic, graphic, sordid, horrific and completely culpable by Hillsong, the Australian AOG and Pastor Brian Houston.

 

Pastor Brian Houston has tried for 14 years to bury it, sanitise it, but like a Frankenstein monster it has jumped from the grave and is now attacking and tormenting Pastor Brian Houston, his supporters and the whole Houston clan of three generations.

The Fourteen Known Boy and Young Teen Victims

The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse also mentioned six other little boy victims of Pastor Frank Houston in New Zealand in the 1960s. But there are many more.

I have been writing since September 2012 that there were six 10 year old boy victims of Frank Houston in Lower Hutt, New Zealand in the 1960s.

Here is my head count of child sex abuse victims of Frank Houston:

I have evidence of 14 or more mainly boy victims.

I have evidence of two teen victims, Peter Fowler, who went public in the 1970s with the encouragement of the now deceased prophet Pastor Philip Powell and teen victim ANZ1 (my code-name) who suicided as a direct result of Frank Houston’s sexual abuse.

From the testimony of the boy victims and the circumstantial evidence, I believe there were over four hundred victims of Frank Houston’s abuse. He confessed to Brian Houston, his son, in circa 1999, that he was very active as a pedophile, particularly in the 1960s and 1970s.

Here are the boy victims aged 7 to 12, and one teenager aged 15 years old:

1. Six 10 year old boys Pastor Frank Houston molested while Head Pastor of Lower Hutt Assemblies of God (AOG), Wellington, New Zealand in the 1960s, while at the same time, General Superintendent of the New Zealand AOG (from 1965 to 1977).

2. Sydney boy victim AHA, as above revealed on Day One of Hillsong’s time at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse on 7 October 2014.

This is a particularly sordid case of repeated child sexual abuse of a little 7 year old boy by Pastor Frank Houston which continued for 5 years.  I have covered this case in detail in my blogs on the Royal Commission starting on the 7 October 2014.

3. One 15 year old boy, Peter Fowler, in the Lower Hutt AOG, New Zealand. The Lower Hutt AOG paid out Peter, but it wasn’t much money.

4. At least 4 boy victims at Assemblies of God Church camps in South Australia in the early 1970s. See my blogs on victim SA1 (my code name for him) dated 16 and 17 October 2014. SA1 was aged 11 years old at the tie of the abuse.

5. One young man in Auckland, New Zealand, ANZ1 (my code-name) who suicided as a result of the abuse. He was in his late teens.

I sense there are a lot more New Zealand boy, pre-teen and teen male victims.

7. One boy aged 8 years old, in a suburb near Tawa, Wellington, New Zealand. My code name for him is WNZ1. The abuse was very similar to the Royal Commission victim AHA.

WNZ1 believes there were more boy abuse victims in his suburb. See my blogs date 18 and 19 October 2014.

TOTAL: 14 and many more victims. 400 plus boy and teen victims based on the evidence.

 

The First Hillsong

Christian Life Centre was the name of Hillsong and other Hillsong branches in the late 1970s and 1980s.

 

Boy victim SA1 from Adelaide South Australia

One of the victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s child sexual abuse at Kleimzeg Assemblies of God camps in South Australia in the early 1970s, SA1, contacted me after reading articles about Pastor Frank Houston on this blog site. He shared there were several other victims of Pastor Frank Houston’s pedophile abuse at these camps.

The epicentre of Frank Houston’s pedophile activities at these South Australian camps was the boy’s toilet block.  

The abuse involved the fondling of little boys genitalia and masturbation in the toilet block and bunk room. Pastor Frank Houston was very confident, blazen, perverse and tactile.

Yes Pastor Frank Houston. The greatest and most prominent AOG Pastor in Australia and New Zealand from 1970s to 1998, when the truth of his duality emerged.

Frank Houston was a secretive, manipulative, sordid, dishonest and heartless criminal pedophile for 70 years from the 1930s until his death in 2004. 

 

Pastor Brian Houston’s lies about the number of victims continues to this day

The official line of Hillsong Church and Pastor Brian Houston was that his father, Pastor William Francis “Frank” Houston only abused one boy in New Zealand 40 years ago.

This is the line that they held from the late 1990s to the Royal Commission in October 2014.

This is the view that was on their web-site for over a decade. When I was researching articles I wrote about Frank Houston and his pedophile activities in 2012, Hillsong’s website and all the accounts by Pastor Brian Houston and Hillsong media reflected this great lie.

This is the view they have told the Sydney Morning Herald and other newspapers.

This view is totally inaccurate and a blatant lie by Brian Houston.

It emerged at the Royal Commission that Pastor Brian Houston has known that this official view was untrue and a lie all this time.

Folks we’ve been all been deceived.

What is still lacking from Frank’s son, Pastor Brian Houston and the Hillsong Movement, which Brian controls, is any real degree of honesty and openness about Frank Houston.

For example, why won’t Brian and the AOG release the official AOG report on Frank Houston’s pedophile activities?

Why didn’t Brian admit his father did numerous pedophile and homosexual acts, and not just one, like Brian portrayed for 14 years, until the Royal Commission exposed his lies? Why do Brian lie to us all? How can Brian lie like this and be a prominent Christian pastor?

Why is Brian Houston still lying about the number of victims telling Sydney’s channel nine reporter Leila McKinnon earlier this year when she asked how many victims Brian believes there are now, Brian hesitantly replied “six”. This is despite Brian knowing about at least 8 victims in 1999 and at least 9 victims in 2004. Why lie Brian? Who is the Father of Lies?

 

Was Brian Houston sexually abused by his rampant pedophile father Frank?

And the question lingers, was Pastor Brian Houston himself, or his brother Graeme, sexually abused by their father Frank?

Maybe that’s too personal for Brian to admit, if anything occurred.

Or maybe he can’t remember.

These dark memories are normally suppressed and buried by the defence mechanisms of the human psyche.

Brian’s brother Graeme has refused to attend church since his teens. Why?

Further, were Brian and Graeme aware of the accusations against his father while he was a lad?

The pre-adolescent little boys Pastor Frank Houston sexually abused in Lower Hutt were Brian and Graeme’s age at the time.

Brian even stayed with his dad at AHA’s family home in Coogee, while his father lay on top of victim AHA all night and abused him for the week of their stay on one of the many visits. One can see why pedophile Frank Houston liked to go to Sydney and stay at AHA’s parent’s house. Disgusting.

The pedophile Frank Houston’s overseas “evangelistic” trips overseas were really sex holidays away from his wife and people who he was accountable to.

 

Details of boy victim AHA’s sexual abuse

While Pastor Frank Houston lay on top of little 7 year old AHA, who is now 52, the skinny spider-like Pastor Frank Houston sexually molested him. He fondled his genitals, he fondled his little thighs and bottom, and he digitally penetrated him. AHA shared on Tuesday 7 October 2014 at the Royal Commission that he froze with fear.

Boy victim AHA wondered, why was this hero of the faith, a godly man who my mum and dad loved, doing this to me?

Victim AHA lay frozen with fear as Frank Houston, the pariah, lay on top of him all night. The cats howled, the night birds cackled as the do in Australia, the dogs barked down the street and the garbos rattled their bins, and all this time through those long chill hours, Pastor Frank Houston lay on top of AHA doing awful creepy very perverse things to AHA.

If you think I’m being too graphic, this is what AHA said at the Royal Commission. These are the facts the Royal Commission’s lawyer, Simeon Beckett, read out. These are the facts that AHA read out from his witness statement on Tuesday 7 October 2014 at the Royal Commission into Child Abuse in Sydney.

You can read AHA’s testimony at the Commission on http://www.childabuseroyalcommission.gov.au

 

Pastor Brian Houston accused victim AHA of tempting his dad and being the cause of all the trouble for his dad

It is interesting to note that victim AHA, who spoke anonymously at the Royal Commission, stated that Pastor Brian Houston accused victim AHA of tempting his dad and being the cause of all the trouble for his dad.

Pastor Brian Houston has denied this. I believe victim AHA because he sounded very honest and very coherent. Pastor Brian Houston hasn’t been honest about all this stuff for over 14 years.

The Royal Commission has also revealed how Hillsong, the AOG and Pastor Brian Houston have been heartless towards child abuse victims of Pastor Frank Houston and other AOG Pastor and leader pedophiles.

If you read my blogs on 7 to 10 October you’ll get drift.

Brian at the Royal Commission

At the Royal Commission on 9 October, when Pastor Brian Houston was the star witness, he wiggled and swirmed in the hot seat of the witness box. Then he straight out said they won’t help the victims in any way. The reasons are outlined in my blog articles on this site of 9 and 10 October 2104.

Peter Laughton’s homosexual affair with Frank Houston

Since Peter Laughton, Pastor Frank Houston’s young worship leader, went public in 2007 about Frank’s abuse of him in the early 1980s, the Houston family have taken the line that Peter Laughton was a consenting male with their father Frank. In his early 20s at the time of his abuse in the early 1980s, Peter was over the age of consent which is 18 in Australia for consenting homosexual acts.

But is it ok before God for the most prominent AOG clergy in Australia and New Zealand, aged 58, to indulge in numerous sordid homosexual acts with his young worship leader?

At the time the homosexual liaison started Pastor Frank Houston was 58 and Peter was 20.

I fail to see how the Houston’s can dismiss this series of incidents with Peter Lawton so readily.

 

Pastor Frank Houston was attracted to boys, adolescent boys and men in their 20s. His sexual orientation was young and male

Pastor Frank Houston was attracted to boys, adolescent boys and men in their 20s. His sexual orientation was young and male.

Pastor Frank Houston was an active secret pedophile and homosexual particularly from the 1960s to the 1980s.

By 1990 he was 68 and his homosexual and pedophile libido seemed to have dropped off. I haven’t found any pedophile dirty old man Houston victims.

A reader of this site commented recently that he knew Frank Houston in the 1950s at Ellerslie AOG in Auckland, New Zealand. He wrote in a comment on this site that Pastor Frank Houston had fixation about male swimmers. There were some NZ Olympic swimmers training. A young Pastor Frank Houston used to go down to the local swimming pool to watch them training and perve on them.

If you knew Pastor Frank Houston at this time and you know of pedophile incidents could you please contact me. I suspect his pedophile activities started earlier than Lower Hutt AOG.

 

Frank Houston was sexually abused by his father

At the Royal Commission, Pastor Brian Houston told the Commission that his dad had been abused by his father. In fact this is no secret because Pastor Frank use to share about this from the pulpit at Christian Life Centre in the 1980s.

Pastor Frank Houston openly shared how his dad was very mean to him and his mum. That his dad had an affair with the woman next door and other bad stuff. The ABC of Psychology says that people who were sexually abused as children often go on to sexually abuse children when they are older/ become adults. That’s a big subject.

 

Peter Laughton spoke to the Sydney Morning Herald

If you google “Frank Houston” or “Frank Houston abuse” you’ll find plenty of transcript of detailed sordid accounts of Frank Houston’s sexual activities with Peter Laughton.

Peter has given interviews to the Sydney Morning Herald.

In these interviews Peter speaks honestly and candidly about the homo-erotic activities Frank Houston led him to do. It’s interesting yet very sad reading.

Please bear in mind that Frank Houston was aged 58, and the most prominent AOG clergy at the time, and he was abusing a vulnerable and needy young man aged 20 who was his Church worship leader. Heavy stuff indeed.

 

The investigation and being caught

The release of the official AOG Report on Frank Houston’s pedophile activities is a document which would be helpful to the victims of Frank Houston’s pedophile activities. What is more important? Protecting Frank Houston’s legacy and reputation, the Houston name and Hillsong’s reputation, or allowing some healing and closure, not only to Frank’s numerous pedophile victims, but also to the countless others who were part of Christian Life Centre and Hillsong in the early days and who were deeply hurt and shattered by revelations of Frank’s secret activities.

Frank’s pedophile activities were not destined to remain a secret to his grave. By the late 90s the chorus of complaints was to become deafening. The AOG, and in particular, the then National Chief Executive Pastor Brian Houston, his son, were forced to investigate and do something about it.

 

Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst the second name for Hillsong

I personally knew Peter Laughton at Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst.

Peter was very talented singer, song-writer and composer. A nice guy. Sensitive. Artistic.

No one had any idea that Frank Houston aged 58 and a revered pastor and his worship leader Peter Laughton age 20 were involved in a four year homosexual affair from 1980 to 1984.

 

Extraordinary talent

In those days Frank had gathered together some extraordinary musical talent.

Frank had recruited Pastor David Johnston from Los Angeles to found international Institute of Creative Ministries (IICM), a music, singing and dance Ministries School. David worked at Wesley College for decades since these times. David is a very talented pastor, violinist, composer and worship leader.

Trevor King was also there. Trevor now lives in Auckland,  New Zealand. Trevor is very talented on the piano and led the band and was the Music Pastor.

Geoff Bullock is another muso who owes his success to the Houstons. Unfortunately Geoff’s personal life became a train-wreck when his marriage fell over and his ministry has never recovered to the heights of his success under the Houstons. Particularly under Pastor Brian Houston.

Pastor Brian Houston is truly a king-maker. So much talent. So many scandals.

Peter- looking for father love

Peter Laughton is a really nice guy.

Outgoing, talented and sensitive.

In Frank, Peter has said that he was looking for father love. The kind of love Frank gave him was secretive, self-gratifying and impure.

 

The pedophile is secretive and motivated by deep impure needs and impulses 

The pedophile is secretive and motivated by deep impure needs and impulses that they find impossible to control. Their victims are really just objects of their desire. There is no care or love towards their victims. For the pedophile it is “all about me”.

I wrote another 13 articles, which are on this blog-site, on this subject of Pastor Frank Houston from 13 September 2012.

My memories of the man and what I experienced during the 1980s and 1990s while attending Hillsong Church.

I have written over 200 other articles on Hillsong and the Royal Commission.

 

Frank Houston is the worst Pentecostal Pastor in the history of the planet.

I have come to the conclusion that Pastor Frank Houston is the worst Pentecostal Pastor in the history of the planet.

To do what Frank Houston did to little boys and teens all his lifetime, while maintaining the front of a holy man of God is the very gravest of sins known to mortal man.

Since I wrote this article in September 2012, and since the Royal Commission examined the Houstons and Hillsong, Simeon Beckett, the Royal Commission barrister, publicly recommended in December 2014 that Pastor Brian Houston be criminally charged by the NSW Police for not reporting and for sheltering a pedophile, his old life-long pedophile father, Pastor Frank Houston, the  founder of the Hillsong organisation.

In October 2015 the Royal Commission recommended Brian Houston for prosecution in its Findings.
