Donald Elley of Bellingen: 

I wrote this series of articles in November 2015. This was a year after Pastor Brian Houston and top Hillsong and ACC (Australian Christian Churches) leaders appeared by legal subpoena at the Australian Royal Commission Into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

By then I was getting a very clear picture of Frank Houston. I came to the view that Frank Houston was a pedophile who used Christian ministry to access little boys and not the other way round. That is, not a Christian pastor who had “a problem with boys” as his wife Hazel liked to characterise it.

Australian Christian Churches is the new name for the Australian AOG (Assemblies of God) since Brian Houston renamed and re-incorporated it in 2007.

The Royal Commission accused Brian of doing this to avoid paying compensation to his father Frank’s boy and teen victims.

Even to this day, Brian Houston, Hillsong and the ACC refuse to pay out sexual abuse victims of Frank Houston and other pedophile pastors in Hillsong and the ACC. They fight anyone who makes a child sex abuse compensation claim tooth and nail and invest hundreds of thousands, even millions in defence.

The poor victims are hung out to dry by Hillsong and ACC prestigious, expensive lawyers.

 

 

Mapping the mind of a pedophile

I first heard Frank Houston preach forty years earlier in 1976 at Christian Centre Wellington Central, a New Zealand AOG (Assemblies of God) church. Wellington is New Zealand’s capital. Pastor Don Cosby was the pastor.

In 1977 I heard Frank Houston preach at Kapiti Christian Centre on the Raumati Coast north of Wellington, New Zealand’s capital. Tom Marshall was the head pastor.

I didn’t speak with Frank personally in those meetings.

In 1981, I moved to Sydney and met Frank Houston in person at CLC (Christian Life Centre), Darlinghurst, Sydney. I got to know Frank, Hazel, Brian, Bobbie and numerous other people there. Darlinghurst is a suburb adjunct Sydney CBD.

In 1981, 400 were attending. By 1987 there was over a thousand. By 2000 there were 3000 meeting at CLC Sydney in a new premise at Waterloo, another inner city suburb.

Brian started a CLC at Baulkham Hills in Western Sydney in 1983. This church grew to over 3000 by the mid 1990s and has grown exponentially since.

CLC was an independent Pentecostal church in the early 1980s. Later in the 1980s it joined the Australian AOG.

By 2000 all CLC churches were renamed Hillsong. Brian’s branch, CLC Baulkham Hills, was named Hillsong earlier in the 1990s.

I was a lay pastor at CLC from 1983 to 1989.

I left CLC in 1990 after a relative supplied irrefutable evidence that Frank was a long-time pedophile. A friend of his was sexually abused by Frank as a boy in New Zealand.

Although I’d heard allegations that Frank was a pedophile since 1977, I was unsure until 1990. There was nothing I could do about my new knowledge about Frank. I didn’t even know what child sex abuse was. I never imagined the horrific things pedophiles do to children.

In the 1990s media began reporting about child sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests. In the 2000s articles in Australian media began telling child victim accounts of what Australian Catholic priests had done to them in horrific detail.

It was only after the Royal Commission in 2014 that I realised how evil Frank was.

I’d asked Frank directly in 1982 about pedophile allegations. He denied them.

In 1999, Frank confessed to his son Brian that he’d been a pedophile all his life. Frank supplied few details to anyone, including Brian. Frank died in November 2004.

In 1999, Frank told Brian that he was “out-of-control” as a pedophile in the 1960s to 1970s back in New Zealand. This is the period of all known victims.

Brian said to media after the Royal Commission in October 2014, “We may never know the number of victims”.

From boy and teen victim testimony, I have established 13 Frank Houston sex abuse victims to date.

Please see this article of mine for details of all known boy and teen victims of Frank:

“Hillsong founder the child rapist Pastor Frank Houston. Part One. Frank Houston’s pedophile activities.”

Here is the link: https://donaldelley.wordpress.com/2020/05/15/hillsong-founder…le-activities-28/

From the evidence, since 2015, I’ve believed that that Frank sexually abused at least 400 boys and teens.

I believe Frank started sexually abusing other children younger than him from his early teens.

Frank openly told us at CLC in the 1980s that his dad, also Frank, sexually abused him as a boy. It was common in those days for a son to be given his father’s name. My father’s name is Reuben Donald Elley. Dad was known as Rev Don Elley.

After leaving CLC in 1990, later I spent some time at CLC from 1999 to 2000. Jeff Beacham was running ‘Catch the Fire” meetings and I attracted to these because I love the Holy Spirit and His Movings.

I was at C3 Global Church based in Sydney from 1996 to 1998 and in 2002. I knew Phil Pringle and was on his building committee for a year in 1997.

I renovated C3 City Campus in Darlinghurst in 2002. It’s a beautiful historic Presbyterian church building owned by a developer I know.

So I have significant experience with the two major Pentecostal churches in Australia and New Zealand- Hillsong Global Church and C3 Global Church.

Frank never confessed his pedophilia to me despite my being suspicious of him since 1977 in this respect.

Everything else I know about Frank Houston started surfacing from 2012, a year after I started this blog site.

This site is not about the Houstons and Hillsong. It is my personal blog-site covering a wide range of topics.

On 13 September 2012, I wrote a series of articles on this site about Frank.

In response to this article from 2012 to 2014 three Frank Houston boy victims and the brother of another Frank teen victim contacted me. I’ve published their stories of sexual abuse by Frank of them as children on this site many times since then. I facilitated one of these victims giving a statement to the Royal Commission.

Apart from Frank’s pedophilia I knew a lot about Frank from my time at CLC.

So I am a Hillsong and C3 insider who speaks freely about these churches and what’s wrong with them.

I am not at all bitter about them.

I wasn’t ex-communicated or kicked out of Hillsong or C3 Global Church.

If I walked into any Hillsong or C3 church these days, I wouldn’t be welcome because of my writings about them on this blog-site.

I walked into a Hillsong affiliated church in Coffs Harbour, near where I live, Lifehouse Church Coffs Harbour, 18 months ago and was asked to leave because of this blog-site.

The church manager, Luke Alcock, threatened to call the police, even though I was walking out the door and causing no trouble. Good Christian folks.

Lifehouse Church Coffs Harbour is an ACC Church. The head pastor Stephen Lott, known as Lotty, is a close friend of Brian Houston. Stephen Lott is head of Youth Alive, a national ACC ministry for young people.

The Australian AOG was renamed the ACC by Brian in 2009. ACC in full is ‘Australian Christian Churches’.

Hillsong pulled out of the ACC denomination in 2018 and formed it’s own denomination. So now the great Brian Houston is accountable to no one.

 

Brian Houston at the Whitehouse in Washington DC in October last year. Now accountable to no one.

Mapping the mind of a pedophile

TNN | Nov 1, 2014, 04.00AM IST

By Dr Sulata Shenoy

“A pedophile is a person who suffers from a psychosexual disorder, in which there is a sexual preference for prepubescent children.

Pedophilia is classified as a mental disorder and criminal act in almost all societies across the world.

Pedophiles can be anyone- old or young, rich or poor, educated or uneducated, non-professional or professional, and of any race.
On the surface, they can be charming, suave, knowledgeable and kind. They are difficult to identify by appearance alone, and could occupy positions of responsibility and trust.

Pedophiles find a way to legitimize contact with children by obtaining employment in a field where they can deal with them on a daily basis, or may volunteer for activities in which they are left alone with unsupervised children.

A distressing fact is that most of them gain the trust and confidence of the victim before perpetrating the crime, and are rarely strangers to the child. Paedophiles are masters in manipulative behaviour and often first become the child’s friend, refer to the child as ‘special’, appeal to the child’s need to be understood, pretend to share an ‘exciting secret’ with the child or entice the child with adult ‘grown-up’ activities. The paedophile often bribes the child with attention, gifts, chocolates, trips to amusement parks etc, to gain compliance.

Several researchers have reported correlations between pedophilia and certain psychological characteristics, such as low and poor social skills. It is also believed that paedophiles have impaired interpersonal functioning and dysfunctional sexuality. Paedophiles use child sex to meet personal needs, justifying abuse by making excuses, redefining their actions as love, and exploiting the power imbalance inherent in all adult-child relationships. A few studies have pointed out that their emotional development is immature. Some studies suggest they were probably abused as children. There may or may not coexist a personality disorder or psychological pathology with substance abuse.

So parents need to be cautious while entrusting a child to another adult, unless they know them well. A background check of the person, whether he has changed jobs and locations frequently, also needs to be established. Involve yourself in the child’s activities without being overly intrusive. Ensure the child is not left alone and unsupervised for long, which can make him/her an easy target. It’s important to have a close and trusting relationship with your child and teach the child about body safety and boundaries, appropriate and inappropriate touch. Most of all, believe in your child and support the child if he/she reports abuse”.

The Pathological Pedophile

The article by Dr Sulata Shenoy, a psychologist, states:

“Pedophiles find a way to legitimise contact with children by obtaining employment in a field where they can deal with them on a daily basis, or may volunteer for activities in which they are left alone with unsupervised children”.

This is a well-known and well-researched fact about pedophiles. The mind and psyche of a pedophile is unwell and corrupted to a very deep pathological level.

Any Clinical Psychological textbook or reference book will give you information along these lines. That pedophiles are amongst the sickest and most depraved individuals in society, or even in jail, is disputed by no one.

Even in jail they are the lowest of the low.

In Australian jails, pedophiles are called “rock-spiders”. The reason that they are called rock-spiders is because they like to penetrate little children’s cracks. Like a rock-spider likes cracks and dark places.

 

Rock spider. Jail name for pedophile. Origin: Western Australia jail slang.

Rock spider. Jail name for pedophile. Origin: Western Australia jail slang.

 

I’m sorry to mention this but this is the type of sexual abuse that Pastor Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong International, did to Royal Commission victim AHA for over five years.

This is the kind of sexual abuse that the pedophile Frank Houston did to myriad other boys and young male victims.

That’s the reason why all the victims of Frank Houston’s pedophilia are so affected by their interaction with Frank Houston.

It’s not that they were seduced by Frank Houston, like a Lothario seduces a woman.

We’re talking here about little boys.

The Royal Commission documented victim AHA was a mere seven years old when the abuse started. He remembers the day because he was about to turn eight and the pedophile Frank Houston laughingly signed and dated his mother’s Bible soon after the first abuse incidents.

The pedophile Frank Houston was a trusted overnight guest at AHA’s family’s flat at Coogee, four beaches south of Frank Houston’s son, Pastor Brian Houston’s favourite Bondi Beach, where Brian and his family have purchased luxury beach-side apartments each worth two million dollars plus.

At the same time boy victim AHA is an invalid pensioner, who is still badly busted up by the sexual abuse by Frank Houston almost five decades later. In fact, he is now dying of cancer.

And for decades, despite their open and flamboyant wealth, Pastor Bobbie and Brian Houston refuse to help any of the victims of the founder of Hillsong, Frank Houston, in any way.

Spare a thought for young male victim ANZ1, who suicided after Frank Houston abused him.

Frank Houston preached in Auckland, New Zealand in the 1970s and lured victim ANZ1 back to his hotel room, on the pretence of offering him Christian prayer to help him. The he sexually abused him. How bad can you get?

This is normal for pedophiles.

 

Frank Houston was a secret pedophile and homosexual from his early teens

It wasn’t until 2014, after hearing victim AHA speak at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse about over five years of horrific abuse, and heard from other victims such as SA1 and WNZ1, that I realised that Frank Houston was an extremely bad.

On the evidence, of which there is masses of it mentioned on this site, I’ve come to the conclusion that Frank Houston was a pedophile early on, probably from his early teens.

This is when I believe he started abusing children.

 

The pedophile Frank Houston was abused by his own father.

For strange reasons, only known to Frank Houston himself, Frank Houston shared from the pulpit at Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst several times that his own father sexually abused him when he was a child.

I think he shared this to throw us all off the scent, and to try to make out that he was a victim, and not a perpetrator, of child sexual abuse.

 

The prophet Philip Powell harasses the pedophile Frank Houston for decades

Frank Houston was a very tormented man. By the 1980s he was under siege. During the 1960s and 1970s he’d conducted an out-of-control pedophile spree.

Yet Frank Houston managed to fend off strong attacks and accusations from a band of very concerned and angry Christians at Lower Hutt Assemblies of God (AOG), including Stan and Sheila Carter. He forced them and the other accusers out of his church, Lower Hutt AOG.

Stan Carter was an elder. I met Stan and Sheila Carter at Kapiti Christian Centre on the Raumati Coast north of Wellington, New Zealand’s capital in 1977.

Later Pastor Philip Powell, a former Australian AOG General Secretary, who left the AOG in 1992, was convinced Frank Houston was a pedophile. From the 1970s he tried to expose him and bring him down. But Frank Houston was resilient and up for a fight.

I’ll cover Pastor Philip Powell’s prophetic work in exposing Frank Houston in a separate article in this series.

 

Pastor Frank Houston. Lifelong pedophile. Answerable to God.

Pastor Frank Houston. in his old age. An old burnt-out pedophile. A lifelong secret pedophile. Used the Christian ministry as a disguise. Answerable to God.

 

Every time I hear a new piece of evidence, for example, about how Jim Williams, Frank Houston’s friend and ministerial colleague, was a pedophile, I see more and more just how bad this man Frank Houston really was.

A Ministry trip with Frank Houston to Chile in May 1990 when he sexually assaulted me

In May 1990 I went on a ministry trip to Chile in South America with Frank Houston and his wife Hazel.

In hindsight I’m not sure if Frank Houston took me on this trip because he was attracted to me in a homosexual sense, or if the fact that he sexually abused me, in a low level way, on that trip, was just something he did because “I was there” and “he was a lifelong secret pedophile and homosexual” and couldn’t help himself to play with what was on offer.

Whatever the reasons and rationale, Frank Houston had me more or less trapped in an aircraft, with tight seating, designed for small South Americans and not big Australians like me. He pressed his leg against my leg all night and got an erection. It was clearly visible in his suit pants. When I tried to move my leg away several times, he moved his leg towards me, and kept pressing it hard against my leg.

I felt extremely uncomfortable and didn’t know what to do. It was highly unexpected, although I believed prior to this trip that he was unwell and that he was a pedophile.

When I looked into his eyes Frank Houston wasn’t there. His eyes and his face looked like a cold heartless demon. A psychopath. I was looking straight at the hard, cold, heartless prince demon that had taken over his life almost completely. The result of a lifetime of secret pedophilia and homosexuality.

I was just another victim of a cold heartless very sick man, who’d used the Christian ministry for many decades, even all his life, as a foil, cover and disguise to access primarily little boys and young males.

If young boys and young males weren’t available, any male, say under 35, was fair game. I was 34 at the time and in my prime as a male. Strong, handsome but heterosexual, married and a father. It was a complete shock and very left-field that Frank Houston did that too me.

It never affected me much for I’d heard allegations Frank Houston was a pedophile since 1979. It wasn’t until 1990, after this trip, when a relative shared with me, on very sound authority, that Frank Houston had abused 6 ten year old boys at Lower Hutt AoG, that I believed 100 per cent he had abused children.

I think I went on that trip out of curiosity and to see if any miracles occurred.

I already thought Frank Houston was bad and I wanted to see first hand how he was going to pretend to be an evangelist and do healings in Chile.

Before we went he told Christian Life Centre Waterloo that the reason why there weren’t healings there was because they lacked faith. This is typical “Frank-speak”. To blame others for his own failings.

A typical pedophile too. He knew he couldn’t do healings because he was evil, but it was part of his acting charade as a Christian evangelist. It was expected of him. It was almost a required event, as a famous Pentecostal evangelist, to do healings. Frank Houston knew he was shooting blanks in regard to healings. He knew he was demon-possessed but he didn’t care.

So Frank Houston took his naive believing supportive wife Hazel on a ministry trip to Chile, where he’d been before. In his mind he planned to go there, do his preaching, pretend to heal people, and come back and say, “See. I’ve done all these wonderful healings. If you want healings congregation you’ll have to lift your faith”. The whole thing was a con from start to finish.

Frank Houston was a secret pedophile and homosexual from his early teens

It wasn’t until 2014, after hearing victim AHA speak at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse about over five years of horrific abuse, and heard from other victims such as SA1 and WNZ1, that I realised that Frank Houston was an extremely bad.

I’d already had that experience on the plane to Chile and I knew about child and teen victims of his abuse, but I hadn’t really understood the mind of a pedophile.

On the evidence, of which there is masses of it mentioned on this site, I’ve come to the conclusion that Frank Houston was a pedophile early on, probably from his early teens. That is when I believe he started abusing children.

The pedophile Frank Houston was abused by his own father.

I’ll cover Pastor Philip Powell’s prophetic work in exposing Frank Houston in a separate article in this series.

Pastor Frank Houston. Lifelong pedophile. Answerable to God.

Pastor Frank Houston. in his old age. An old burnt-out pedophile. A lifelong secret pedophile. Used the Christian ministry as a disguise. Answerable to God.

Every time I hear a new piece of evidence, for example, about how Jim Williams, Frank Houston’s friend and ministerial colleague, was a pedophile, I see more and more just how bad this man Frank Houston really was.

I’ve prepared an outline of forty articles in this series.

The number forty

I’m not heavily into Bible numerics. You have to be careful about them. It’s easy to get led astray into complex and ultimately unedifying speculations.

God is the ultimate and greatest mathematician. Creation is ordered and mathematically complex.

Here is a brief outline of the meaning of the number 40 in the Holy Bible.

The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 40

“Mentioning 146 times in Scripture, the number 40 generally symbolizes a period of testing, trial or probation. During Moses’ life he lived forty years in Egypt and forty years in the desert before God selected him to lead his people out of slavery. Moses was also on Mount Sinai for 40 days and nights, on two separate occasions (Exodus 24:18, 34:1 – 28), receiving God’s laws. He also sent spies, for forty days, to investigate the land God promised the Israelites as an inheritance (Numbers 13:25, 14:34).

The prophet Jonah powerfully warned ancient Nineveh, for forty days, that its destruction would come because of its many sins. The prophet Ezekiel laid on His right side for 40 days to symbolize Judah’s sins (Ezekiel 4:6). Elijah went 40 days without food or water at Mount Horeb. Jesus was tempted by the devil not just three times, but MANY times during the 40 days and nights he fasted just before his ministry began. He also appeared to his disciples and others for 40 days after his resurrection from the dead.

The number forty can also represent a generation of man. Because of their sins after leaving Egypt, God swore that the generation of Israelites who left Egyptian bondage would not enter their inheritance in Canaan (Deuteronomy 1). The children of Israel were punished by wandering the wilderness for 40 years before a new generation was allowed to possess the promised land. Jesus, just days before his crucifixion, prophesied the total destruction of Jerusalem (Matthew 24:1 – 2, Mark 13:1 – 2). Forty years after his crucifixion in 30 A.D., the mighty Roman Empire destroyed the city and burned its beloved temple to the ground”.

My comments:

I’ve chosen the number of articles in this series to be forty articles to symbolise Judgment on the House of Hillsong and the House of Houston, to construct a complete outline of a very corrupt life, and as a warning to others not to think they can get away with using the Blessed Body of Christ as a Garden in which to commit their wanton lusts.

The pedophile Frank Houston is in the hands of Almighty God.

His corrupt son, the ever-cocky Brian Houston, is in God’s hands too. As is his wife Bobbie and every corrupt leader of the House of Houston and the House of Hillsong.

He knew he’d be caught one day. He’d committed too many offences. It was just a matter of time. He died in the greatest shame. His life and legacy are as rotten as all hell.

Mapping the mind of a pedophile

TNN | Nov 1, 2014, 04.00AM IST

By Dr Sulata Shenoy

“A pedophile is a person who suffers from a psychosexual disorder, in which there is a sexual preference for prepubescent children.

Pedophilia is classified as a mental disorder and criminal act in almost all societies across the world.

Pedophiles can be anyone- old or young, rich or poor, educated or uneducated, non-professional or professional, and of any race.
On the surface, they can be charming, suave, knowledgeable and kind. They are difficult to identify by appearance alone, and could occupy positions of responsibility and trust.

Pedophiles find a way to legitimize contact with children by obtaining employment in a field where they can deal with them on a daily basis, or may volunteer for activities in which they are left alone with unsupervised children.

A distressing fact is that most of them gain the trust and confidence of the victim before perpetrating the crime, and are rarely strangers to the child. Paedophiles are masters in manipulative behaviour and often first become the child’s friend, refer to the child as ‘special’, appeal to the child’s need to be understood, pretend to share an ‘exciting secret’ with the child or entice the child with adult ‘grown-up’ activities. The paedophile often bribes the child with attention, gifts, chocolates, trips to amusement parks etc, to gain compliance.

Several researchers have reported correlations between pedophilia and certain psychological characteristics, such as low and poor social skills. It is also believed that paedophiles have impaired interpersonal functioning and dysfunctional s. Paedophiles use to meet personal needs, justifying abuse by making excuses, redefining their actions as love, and exploiting the power imbalance inherent in all adult-child relationships. A few studies have pointed out that their emotional development is immature. Some studies suggest they were probably abused as children. There may or may not coexist a personality disorder or psychological pathology with substance abuse.

So parents need to be cautious while entrusting a child to another adult, unless they know them well. A background check of the person, whether he has changed jobs and locations frequently, also needs to be established. Involve yourself in the child’s activities without being overly intrusive. Ensure the child is not left alone and unsupervised for long, which can make him/her an easy target. It’s important to have a close and trusting relationship with your child and teach the child about body safety and boundaries, appropriate and inappropriate touch. Most of all, believe in your child and support the child if he/she reports abuse”.

The Pathological Pedophile

The article by Dr Sulata Shenoy, a psychologist, states:

“Pedophiles find a way to legitimize contact with children by obtaining employment in a field where they can deal with them on a daily basis, or may volunteer for activities in which they are left alone with unsupervised children”.

This is a well-known and well-researched fact about pedophiles. The mind and psyche of a pedophile is unwell and corrupted to a very deep pathological level.

Any Clinical Psychological textbook or reference book will give you information along these lines. That pedophiles are amongst the sickest and most depraved individuals in society, or even in jail, is disputed by no one.

Even in jail they are the lowest of the low.

In Australia, in jails, pedophiles are called “rock-spiders”. The reason that they are called rock-spiders is because they like to penetrate little children’s cracks. Like a rock-spider likes cracks and dark places.

Rock spider. Jail name for pedophile. Origin: Western Australia jail slang.

I’m sorry to mention this but this is the type of sexual abuse that Pastor Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong International, did to Royal Commission victim AHA for over five years.

This is the kind of sexual abuse that the pedophile Frank Houston did to myriad other boys and young male victims.

That’s the reason why all the victims of Frank Houston’s pedophilia are so affected by their interaction with Frank Houston.

It’s not that they were seduced by Frank Houston, like a Lothario seduces a woman.

We’re talking here about little boys.

The Royal Commission documented victim AHA was a mere seven years old when the abuse started. He remembers the day because he was about to turn eight and the pedophile Frank Houston laughingly signed and dated his mother’s Bible soon after the first abuse incidents.

The pedophile Frank Houston was a trusted overnight guest at AHA’s family’s flat at Coogee, four beaches south of Frank Houston’s son, Pastor Brian Houston’s favourite Bondi Beach, where Brian and his family have purchased luxury beach-side apartments each worth two million dollars plus.

At the same time boy victim AHA is an invalid pensioner, who is still badly busted up by the sexual abuse by Frank Houston almost five decades later. In fact, he is now dying of cancer.

And for decades, despite their open and flamboyant wealth, Pastor Bobbie and Brian Houston refuse to help any of the victims of the founder of Hillsong, Frank Houston, in any way.

Queen Bobbie, the co-pastor of Hillsong Church. Lives the life of an Egyptian Queen while the victims of Frank Houston's abuse battle through life penniless.

Pastor Brian Houston. Worth over $30 million personally. Hillsong brings in $100 million tax-free cash each year. Yet Brian refuses, even to the Ausralian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, to help any of the founder of Hillsong, his old pedophile dad Frank Houston's sexual abuse.

Spare a thought for young male victim ANZ1, who suicided after Frank Houston abused him.

Frank Houston preached in Auckland, New Zealand in the 1970s and lured victim ANZ1 back to his hotel room, on the pretence of offering him Christian prayer to help him. The he sexually abused him. How bad can you get?

My comments:

All pedophiles are pathological.

The pedophile Frank Houston is an example of a life-long pathological pedophile, who was unrepentant, even to the grave.

This is normal for pedophiles.

A Ministry trip with Frank Houston to Chile in May 1990 when he sexually assaulted me

In May 1990 I went on a ministry trip to Chile in South America with Frank Houston and his wife Hazel.

In hindsight I’m not sure if Frank Houston took me on this trip because he was attracted to me in a homosexual sense, or if the fact that he sexually abused me, in a low level way, on that trip, was just something he did because “I was there” and “he was a lifelong secret pedophile and homosexual” and couldn’t help himself to play with what was on offer.

Whatever the reasons and rationale, Frank Houston had me more or less trapped in an aircraft, with tight seating, designed for small South Americans and not big Australians like me. He pressed his leg against my leg all night and got an erection. It was clearly visible in his suit pants. When I tried to move my leg away several times, he moved his leg towards me, and kept pressing it hard against my leg.

I felt extremely uncomfortable and didn’t know what to do. It was highly unexpected, although I believed prior to this trip that he was unwell and that he was a pedophile.

When I looked into his eyes Frank Houston wasn’t there. His eyes and his face looked like a cold heartless demon. A psychopath. I was looking straight at the hard, cold, heartless prince demon that had taken over his life almost completely. The result of a lifetime of secret pedophilia and homosexuality.

I was just another victim of a cold heartless very sick man, who’d used the Christian ministry for many decades, even all his life, as a foil, cover and disguise to access primarily little boys and young males.

If young boys and young males weren’t available, any male, say under 35, was fair game. I was 34 at the time and in my prime as a male. Strong, handsome but heterosexual, married and a father. It was a complete shock and very left-field that Frank Houston did that too me.

It never affected me much for I’d heard allegations Frank Houston was a pedophile since 1979. It wasn’t until 1990, after this trip, when a relative shared with me, on very sound authority, that Frank Houston had abused 6 ten year old boys at Lower Hutt AoG, that I believed 100 per cent he had abused children.

I think I went on that trip out of curiosity and to see if any miracles occurred.

I already thought Frank Houston was bad and I wanted to see first hand how he was going to pretend to be an evangelist and do healings in Chile.

Before we went he told Christian Life Centre Waterloo that the reason why there weren’t healings there was because they lacked faith. This is typical “Frank-speak”. To blame others for his own failings.

A typical pedophile too. He knew he couldn’t do healings because he was evil, but it was part of his acting charade as a Christian evangelist. It was expected of him. It was almost a required event, as a famous Pentecostal evangelist, to do healings. Frank Houston knew he was shooting blanks in regard to healings. He knew he was demon-possessed but he didn’t care.

So Frank Houston took his naive believing supportive wife Hazel on a ministry trip to Chile, where he’d been before. In his mind he planned to go there, do his preaching, pretend to heal people, and come back and say, “See. I’ve done all these wonderful healings. If you want healings congregation you’ll have to lift your faith”. The whole thing was a con from start to finish.

Frank Houston was a secret pedophile and homosexual from his early teens

It wasn’t until 2014, after hearing victim AHA speak at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse about over five years of horrific abuse, and heard from other victims such as SA1 and WNZ1, that I realised that Frank Houston was an extremely bad.

I’d already had that experience on the plane to Chile and I knew about child and teen victims of his abuse, but I hadn’t really understood the mind of a pedophile.

On the evidence, of which there is masses of it mentioned on this site, I’ve come to the conclusion that Frank Houston was a pedophile early on, probably from his early teens. That is when I believe he started abusing children.

The pedophile Frank Houston was abused by his own father.

For strange reasons, only known to Frank Houston himself, Frank Houston shared from the pulpit at Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst several times that his own father sexually abused him when he was a child.

I think he shared this to throw us all off the scent, and to try to make out that he was a victim, and not a perpetrator, of child sexual abuse.

The prophet Philip Powell harasses the pedophile Frank Houston for decades

Frank Houston was a very tormented man. By the 1980s he was under siege. During the 1960s and 1970s he’d conducted an out-of-control pedophile spree. Yet he managed to fend off strong attacks and accusations from a band of very concerned and angry Christians at Lower Hutt Assemblies of God, including Stan and Sheila Carter, who I met in 1979, and he even got them to leave Lower Hutt AOG (Assemblies of God).

Later Pastor Philip Powell, a former Australian AOG General Secretary, who left the AOG in 1992, was convinced Frank Houston was a pedophile. From the 1970s he tried to expose him and bring him down. But Frank Houston was resilient and up for a fight.

I’ll cover Pastor Philip Powell’s prophetic work in exposing Frank Houston in a separate article in this series.

Pastor Frank Houston. Lifelong pedophile. Answerable to God.

Pastor Frank Houston. in his old age. An old burnt-out pedophile. A lifelong secret pedophile. Used the Christian ministry as a disguise. Answerable to God.

Every time I hear a new piece of evidence, for example, about how Jim Williams, Frank Houston’s friend and ministerial colleague, was a pedophile, I see more and more just how bad this man Frank Houston really was.

I’ve prepared an outline of forty articles in this series.

The number forty

I’m not heavily into Bible numerics. You have to be careful about them. It’s easy to get led astray into complex and ultimately unedifying speculations.

God is the ultimate and greatest mathematician. Creation is ordered and mathematically complex.

Here is a brief outline of the meaning of the number 40 in the Holy Bible.

The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 40

“Mentioning 146 times in Scripture, the number 40 generally symbolizes a period of testing, trial or probation. During Moses’ life he lived forty years in Egypt and forty years in the desert before God selected him to lead his people out of slavery. Moses was also on Mount Sinai for 40 days and nights, on two separate occasions (Exodus 24:18, 34:1 – 28), receiving God’s laws. He also sent spies, for forty days, to investigate the land God promised the Israelites as an inheritance (Numbers 13:25, 14:34).

The prophet Jonah powerfully warned ancient Nineveh, for forty days, that its destruction would come because of its many sins. The prophet Ezekiel laid on His right side for 40 days to symbolize Judah’s sins (Ezekiel 4:6). Elijah went 40 days without food or water at Mount Horeb. Jesus was tempted by the devil not just three times, but MANY times during the 40 days and nights he fasted just before his ministry began. He also appeared to his disciples and others for 40 days after his resurrection from the dead.

The number forty can also represent a generation of man. Because of their sins after leaving Egypt, God swore that the generation of Israelites who left Egyptian bondage would not enter their inheritance in Canaan (Deuteronomy 1). The children of Israel were punished by wandering the wilderness for 40 years before a new generation was allowed to possess the promised land. Jesus, just days before his crucifixion, prophesied the total destruction of Jerusalem (Matthew 24:1 – 2, Mark 13:1 – 2). Forty years after his crucifixion in 30 A.D., the mighty Roman Empire destroyed the city and burned its beloved temple to the ground”.

My comments:

I’ve chosen the number of articles in this series to be forty articles to symbolise Judgment on the House of Hillsong and the House of Houston, to construct a complete outline of a very corrupt life, and as a warning to others not to think they can get away with using the Blessed Body of Christ as a Garden in which to commit their wanton lusts.

The pedophile Frank Houston is in the hands of Almighty God.

His corrupt son, the ever-cocky Brian Houston, is in God’s hands too. As is his wife Bobbie and every corrupt leader of the House of Houston and the House of Hillsong.
