For those new to this site I wrote a series of articles about all the errant prominent Pentecostal leaders in Australia and New Zealand Pentecostal Churches including the Assemblies of God (AOG) and Elim, from 1965 to the present times.
I also touched on the errant Clark Taylor in Australia who committed adultery three times while in a trusted position in God.
This article is about Neville Johnson and his misdemeanours with a series of three young, trusting and innocent church secretaries of his in the 1970s at Queen Street Assemblies of God Church in Auckland, New Zealand.
The sexual sins of “Pastor” Neville Johnson with young trusting innocent church secretaries
Neville Johnson pastored the largest Pentecostal Church in Australia or New Zealand in the 1970s.
The church was Queen Street Assemblies of God (AOG) Church in Auckland, New Zealand.
After getting caught out committing a series of three adulteries with a succession of personal secretaries in Auckland motel rooms under the pretense of taking them there to assist him in prayer and fasting activities, the whole church of 3000 collapsed and there was about 400 people left.
Also left was a large building project part underway on Auckland’s prime waterfront.
“Pastor” Neville Johnson never repented at the time, never apologised, tried to justify his actions using Old Testament scriptures arguing it was all Ok and scurried away to Perth in Western Australia to escape the heat.
Neville Johnson argued from Old Testament scriptures that having oral sex with secretaries wasn’t really adultery because there was no sexual intercourse or sexual penetration involved.
This is the identical reasoning that Bill Clinton used to justify his sexual liaisons with Monica Lewinsky in the Whitehouse.
It is to be hoped Hillary Clinton fails in her bid for the Whitehouse.
If Hillary is successful we’ll have a bisexual as President and an aged Lothario probable pedophile as ‘first man’.
I was an eye-witness to Neville Johnson and Queen Street AOG
If you’re young and think I’m making these things up or promoting internet conspiracy theories, I was alive and watching and listening to everything the errant President Bill Clinton and the errant “Pastor” Neville Johnson were up to.
I attended Queen Street AOG for a year in 1980.
I talked to the father of one of Neville Johnson’s young female victims about what Neville did to his daughter and two other young Christian ladies, and my father Rev Reuben Donald Elley also spoke at length with this father- Rev Victor Johnson, an eminent New Zealand Theologian- about everything.
Bill Clinton was impeached (removed) as US President
There was a US Senate Inquiry and Bill Clinton was impeached for denigrating the office of the President. He was later pardoned but shouldn’t have been.
This is why I find it difficult to understand why the American people would vote for Hillary Clinton. Bill is bad enough and a known sex maniac and probable pedophile and Hillary has booze issues and is reputed to have a more ferocious sexual appetite than Bill- with women too.
Yoko Ono recently stated to the New York media that she had sex with Hillary Clinton circa 1970.
What is it about these top US leaders- Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump a known pants man and Lothario?
In many ways the current American Presidential race is a battle for the soul of America, perhaps more than ever before.
If Hillary Clinton gets up the LBGT lobby and cause will be greatly empowered.
If Donald Trump gets up anything could happen. His views on almost everything change daily.
Neville Johnson’s errant story:
The two satanic princes of New Zealand Pentecost
In the 1970s there were two Assemblies of God (AOG) pastors in New Zealand vying for prominence.
One was “Pastor” Frank Houston in the south of the North Island in Lower Hutt, part of Greater Wellington, New Zealand’s capital.
In the more prosperous and developing north in Auckland was “Pastor” Neville Johnson at the Queen Street AOG, in central Auckland.
There was something of a move of God at Queen Street AOG in the early 1970s.
By the late 1970s a church of 3000 was meeting in the Auckland Town Hall each Sunday under the leadership of Neville Johnson.
A single church with 3000 members was unheard of in New Zealand in those days.
Queen Street AOG was the largest church in Australia and New Zealand. The same size as Hillsong City Campus or C3 Oxford Falls in Sydney.
Queen Street AOG was lauded as the greatest Pentecostal church in New Zealand and Neville Johnson was a god on a pedestal.
“Do not touch God’s anointed” was the herald cry of these errant pastors like Neville Johnson, Frank Houston and Jim Williams. But they were all corrupt- the whole lot of them including Wayne Hughes, Jim William’s successor as head of the New Zealand- another rotten scum pedophile. For 38 years from 1965 to 2003 pedophiles ruled the New Zealand AOG. Rotten and unholy leadership. An abomination to Almighty God. Frank Houston’s seed his son Brian Houston head of Hillsong mega-church, the church his father founded is no better- all are completely rotten. Brian Houston, Pat Mesito and every other top Hillsong and Australian Christian Churches pastors. All rotten. All are scammers. All were pedophile protectors of Frank Houston. All are accountable to no one righteous. Not one of them.
The 1970s were the days before mega churches like Hillsong in Baulkham Hills. 400 to 500 was considered a big church. So Queen Street AOG was far larger than anything else going on in Australia and New Zealand at the time.
When you compare Queen Street AOG with Full Gospel Church in Yoida, South Korea, which numbers over 750,000 members, Queen Street AOG was quite small. But anything is small compared to Full Gospel Church in Yoida, South Korea.
Queen Street AOG and big churches
I went to Queen Street AOG in 1980 for a year. I was there just before the whole show toppled down.
I found Queen Street AOG big and impersonal after the smaller churches I was used to.
Neville Johnson’s manner was suave, cool and egotistical. The ego and spiritual kudos really got too much after while.
I’m not really a big church person although I’ve spent a lot of time at larger churches.
I was at Christian Life Centre (CLC) Darlinghurst and later when we moved to Waterloo in the 1980s.
CLC Darlinghurst built the building at Waterloo in 1989 which is now named Hillsong City Campus. It was a warehouse conversion and $2.5 million was outplayed which was a lot of money in those days.
There were 1000 people at CLC Darlinghurst by 1985 and about 2000 at Waterloo by 1990.
Phil Pringle’s C3 had about 3000 members in 1997 to 2002 when I was there at Oxford Falls near Manly, Sydney. It hasn’t grown a lot since although Phil Pringle has established a large number of satellite churches numbering over 100, mainly by already established churches joining the C3 network.
I prefer the name Christian City Church. C3 sounds like a chemistry formula. CO2 plus C3 equals HS 3 in 1. Holy Spirit 3 in One. Oh Yeah. All those name changes. All those attempts to make the Holy Spirit better.
It doesn’t matter what you call your church.
‘The Church of the holy sawdust’. That’s more like it. Azusa Street went off in a converted stables, The folks sat on wooden crates with sawdust on the floor. The place still smelt of residue horse-manure.
Remember where the Lord Jesus Christ was born.
Neville Johnson’s three sexual liaisons with young church secretaries
Neville Johnson, like Clark Taylor in Australia, got caught out with three adulterous moral failures.
Not three moral failures with one woman. Untold moral failures with three secretaries.
Neville Johnson liked to get blow jobs from his secretaries to break the monotony of prayer and fasting.
In those days everyone put the Pentecostal pastors on pedestals so high that there’s only one way to fall…that is down. Down down down. Three different secretaries.
Like Paul de Jong of Life Church in Auckland, Phil Pringle founder of C3 in Sydney, Brian Houston of Hillsong, Jonathan Wilson of Hillsong Santa Monica, Los Angeles, Benny Hinn and countless others, Neville Johnson was very suave, very spiritual and very urban in his tailored suits with manicured hair.
No one would have imagined that he was getting blow jobs from his succession of three secretaries.
Worse, one of the secretaries Naughty Neville Johnson got his rocks off with was his associate Pastor Victor Johnston’s daughter.
Note Johnson and Johnston. These two men are not related. Note the “t” in Victor Johnston’s surname. This “t” or “cross” of being different to, but associated with, Neville Johnson was about to crush Victor Johnston.
Rev Victor Johnston taught at the New Zealand Bible College with Rev Reuben Donald Elley, my father.
I knew Victor from 1974 when my father took up the role of Professor in pastoral theology and evangelism at this institution.
It was later renamed Laidlaw College. Another name change by a church organisation to try to modernise the perception of the name. I like New Zealand Bible College so much better. Laidlaw College reminds me of Chris Laidlaw the All Black
Although from a conservative Baptist background, Victor or “Vic Johnson” was open to the movings of the Holy Spirit. He was involved in the Charismatic movement which was at its peak in the mid to late 1970s in New Zealand.
Neville Johnson approached Vic Johnston to head the Queen Street AOG Bible College called Zion Bible Training Centre.
This was a period of growth in the Assemblies of God in New Zealand. Frank Houston resigned as Superintendent in 1977 and soon after Jim Williams was elected in his place.
Vic Johnson was head lecturer at Zion College.
Vic Johnson was a trained Baptist pastor with advanced theological qualifications. Vic lectured in the Old Testament at New Zealand Bible College. He would have had at least a Masters in Theology maybe a Doctorate.
To lecture at NZ Bible College you would have to have had a Masters in Theology which means the lecturer had a Tertiary degree such as a Bachelor of Arts (BA) which took three years. A BA was required for a Bachelor of Divinity (BD) which took another 3 years. A BD was required to do a Masters of Theology (ThM). A ThM took one to two years. This was a otal 7 to 8 years of very challenging and hard academic study.
A doctorate might take a further one to four years depending on the specialty, the thesis and the Doctoral requirements of the University or Theological College. 8 to 12 years. a lit of knowledge and learning.
A BD required proficiency in Biblical Hebrew and New Testament Greek, which is different from the modern Greek language. A BD third year student would be required to read the Old Testament in Hebrew and the New Testament in NT Greek.
I explain this because in comparison Neville Johnson got his ministerial ticket from a Weetbix packet.
Neville Johnson’s teachings up to today are reflective of his lack of understanding of Biblical truth and his inability to rightly divide the word of truth.
Brian Houston of Hillsong in Sydney Australia went through his dad’s bible school at Lower Hutt AOG. According to sources who were there, Frank Houston used the bible school as a place to have masked homosexual hugs and leg brushes and to seduce young men. He used the Lower Hutt AOG church as a hunting ground to sexually abuse little boys. A foul creature indeed.
I’m not sure what Brian learnt at such a bible course. His teachings and sermons are very random and lightweight.
Joel A’Bell grovels to Brian before he speaks, “We’re looking forward to a delicious treat from Pastor Brian when he preaches soon”. Such unapologetic syrup.
Joel A’Bell of Hillsong, Brian’s associate senior pastor and Phil Pringle, founder and head of C3 Church in Sydney, Paul de Jong of the AOG Life Church in Auckland, Sean Stanton, Gary Canham, Terry Appel, Australian pastors, some who emerged into ministry under Frank Houston, have minimal or no formal bible training. Not one of them has a theological training of even the most fundamental level.
“Doctor Phil” Pringle regarded Frank Houston as his spiritual father. He had laying on of hands from Frank Houston and needs prayer and deliverance from that.
By the way Phil Pringle’s Doctorate is a sham doctorate he paid for by overseas mail-order. A normal doctorate takes four years of full-time university study. Phil Pringle wanted to appear learned so he bought a Doctorate.
Even if someone has a doctorate in theology or anything it doesn’t mean anything in the sight of Almighty God. It depends on the heart of a man or a woman. Doctorates normally inflate the ego and blind people.
I’m not against learning and education but I am against sham.
The seductions of Neville Johnson’s secretaries in the late 1970s in Auckland
Neville Johnston seduced a series of three secretaries of his when he was the Head Pastor of the 3000 member Queen Street Assemblies of God, then the largest Church in Australia and New Zealand, in the 1970s.
The fall-out of these acts with not one, but three successive secretaries was seismic and catastrophic in New Zealand Pentecostal and Charismatic circles in 1980.
The damage was irreparable. Many stopped going to church at all. How culpable is this man Neville Johnson, who has never ever repented of his adulterous sins. Never.
The victims of Neville Johnson’s lust included his leading associate pastor Rev Vic Johnson’s very straight virgin daughter, who was Neville Johnson’s third victim.
This adulterous act shattered not only Vic Johnson’s daughter.
It shattered Vic and Helda Johnston, two very fine and very godly warriors of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Vic Johnson had made great sacrifices to help Neville Johnson and be part of his team.
This was an extremely heartless and callous act of betrayal.
Vic and Helda Johnson were life-long good faithful saints such as are rare on earth and very precious in the sight of God.
Very good and godly people. Very anointed, learned and gracious people like my father Reuben Donald Elley. Very very godly people. The very salt of the earth. Old school rock solid Christians of immense good character.
They were shattered. Their daughter, who had cradled Neville Johnson’s penis in her mouth untold times, was shattered. It was an unholy unforgivable mess.
Vic Johnston’s daughter spilled the beans on what Neville Johnston was up to. This led to all three secretaries telling their story.
It was the same line of seduction. Neville Johnson had found a suitable typology scripture in the Holy Bible. He felt God revealed to him that he was a man who needed special sexual services from the young women around him. Very close and very special services.
Basically Neville Johnson is another sewer rat no worse than any other errant New Zealand Pentecostal AOG pastor who was to follow. And there is quite a list.
Neville Johnson loved Old Testament patterns and typologies. To me these are the babbling in philosophies and speculations the mighty Apostle Paul says to avoid but to Neville these were the creme de la creme.
Neville had some kind of revelation from the holy scripture that it was Ok to have spiritual concubines who gave you blow jobs in motels where you were praying and fasting. The secretary came along to make the tea and give blow jobs.
Victor, who was a close ministerial friend of my dad from the NZ Bible College, told dad that he was completely shattered by the breach of trust towards both his beloved single daughter, who was forever tainted by Neville’s corrupt seed, and he felt terribly betrayed by Neville personally.
Vic Johnson came across from the New Zealand Baptist scene in Auckland at great personal cost to help Neville. This action was at great personal cost, and it attracted massive criticism of his move by conservatives at the New Zealand Bible College and many in the Baptist church movement in New Zealand.
Possibly this travesty and betrayal of his daughter and his family by Neville Johnson shattered him irreparably inside.
This may not have been the case, for Victor Johnston was a great and very humble man of God.
Victor was very strong, godly, gentle, loving and experienced. But it shook him to the foundations of his life. The whole thing. His single devoted daughter soiled by a man he trusted, the embarrassment of being caught up in Neville Johnson’s demise, and the whole embarrassment of it happening in front of Vic Johnson’s critics and sceptics.
To make matters worse Neville Johnson refused to admit his wrong and kept trying to justify his adulteries from the Holy Scripture. Quite a space cadet.
The damage to Queen Street Assemblies of God and the Pentecostal movement in New Zealand cannot be described.
Queen Street AOG were part way into building a massive building down by the wharves near Auckland Harbour Bridge. By the time it was finished there were only 400 people left attending in a space that can hold 3000.
Neville Johnson scurried away to Perth, Western Australia, where he is still ministering today.
The twin satanic princes of New Zealand Pentecost
So there you have it folks.
The twin satanic princes Lucifer counter-sowed into New Zealand Pentecost at the time of the Smith Wigglesworth Revival, New Zealand’s greatest revival in 1922.
Frank Houston in Wellington.
Neville Johnson in Auckland.
One would have thought Neville Johnson would have been finished after these major indiscretions and the incredible damage to the body of Christ, but no, the show must go on in Neville’s mind.
I’ve invited The Holy Incredulous Corpus Copulating Con-Artist II, the Holy Dark Botoxed Rodent Prince of the Prosperity Gospel Holy Snake Oil Salesmen- otherwise known as The Coolest Hip-Hop Pope Pete of Hillsong New York City, Hillsong Los Angeles, Hillsong London and Hillsong Baulkham Hills Steel, Concrete, Glass and Laser Light Basilica Sydney Australia to be my guest on this my blog site and to discuss Neville Johnson and his past-times with me.
Here he is. Welcome Brian err St Pete. The man-priest of Pentecost who single-handedly raped the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of its money and innocence all his UnHoly Houston life.
