Tony Venn-Brown. Gay evangelist talking with Pastor Joel A’Bell Head of Hillsong Australia about how Hillsong can become more gay.

 

The following is a Facebook dialogue a week ago on 10 April 2016 between Pastor Joel A’Bell, Head of Hillsong Australia, and Tony Venn-Brown, a leading Australian Assemblies of God (AOG) evangelist from the 1980s who ‘came out’ as gay, abandoned his family and Christian ministry circa 1990.

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti was Tony Venn-Brown’s assistant evangelist.

Then in 1990 when Tony Venn-Brown ‘came out’ as a homosexual, “Pastor” Pat Mesiti took on Tony Venn- Brown’s mantle as the leading Australian AOG evangelist.

The Australian AOG is now called the Australian Christian Churches since Pastor Brian Houston, the Head of Hillsong, renamed it and reincorporated it in 2007. The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse accused Brian Houston of doing this to try to cheat the boy sexual abuse victims of his father, the pedophile Frank Houston, out of compensation.

The pedophile Frank Houston founded Hillsong Church in 1997 in Double Bay, Sydney. It was not founded by “Pastor” Brian Houston.

The first name for Hillsong Church was Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst which I attend from 1981 to 1990. I was a leading lay pastor with ten home fellowships under my care in Inner City Sydney. I attended there again from the late 1990s to 2000 and was there when Brian Houston took over Hillsong City Church from his father Frank.

The significance of this exchange on Facebook is that it shows that Hillsong at its highest levels is sympathetic to, and in dialogue with, gay Christian leaders like Tony Venn-Brown.

ABBI.ORG.AU is Tony Venn Brown’s gay Christian support and gay Christian promotional organisation.

Pastor Joel A’Bell as head of Hillsong Australia is happy to openly and publicly make arrangements to have coffee with Tony Venn-Brown, a leading proponent of the acceptance of gays in Pentecostal and other Protestant Churches.

In the last article on this site we read that Josh Canfield, the openly gay worship leader at Hillsong New York City, writing on his Twitter page that he’s been a worship leader at Hillsong New York City for eight years.

Not only is Josh Canfield a Hillsong NYC worship leader of eight years but Pastors Carl Lentz and Joel Houston, Brian Houston’s eldest son, brought Josh Canfield over from Hillsong London to lead the worship at Hillsong NYC.

The pattern at Hillsong Church all over the world is towards the acceptance of gays in their churches and allowing gays in ministry position. In the last blog articles on this site I’ve explained how gays are ministering in the choir at Hillsong New York City. There are many gays at Hillsong London.

Hillsong London’s musical performances are very camp.

 

Who is Tony Venn-Brown?

Tony Venn-Brown. Senior member of the gay Christian movement.

Tony Venn-Brown. Senior member of the gay Christian movement.

 

Tony Venn-Brown was the Australian Assemblies of God’s (AOG) most prominent and successful evangelist in the 1980s.

I was involved heavily at the first Hillsong church in Darlinghurst in the 1980s. In those days it was called Christian Life Centre (CLC) Darlinghurst. Christian Life Centre was a common name for Assemblies of God churches in those days in Australia and New Zealand.

I recall Tony Venn-Brown turning up there in 1983. Tony was a very smooth and articulate communicator. A little too much for me and he was akin to the American motivational speakers in his manner and speech.

Tony married and had two children. He became very well-known throughout Australia and would come back to CLC Darlinghurst, which was his base, and regale us with his exploits.

Then suddenly about 1990 Tony left the AOG ministry and said he was now gay.

 

Tony the gay

Tony the gay

 

For decades Tony has been the gay who won’t go away from the main-stream Christian church.

Most gays who have left the church behind find their home in the gay and lesbian community.

But not Tony.

Tony has always had a yearning to be accepted in the mainstream Christian community- as a gay Christian.

This has been a hard calling for Tony.

But as Hillsong Church is allowing gays like Josh Canfield and Reed Kelly at Hillsong NYC into positions of leadership and influence, the social currents at Hillsong Church are turning in Tony’s favour.

So its interesting that Pastor Joel A’Bell, the head of Hillsong Australia, is chumming up to Tony Venn-Brown.

In the next article on this site I’ll explore some of Tony Venn-Brown’s belief systems to illustrate where Hillsong is heading with it’s acceptance and empowerment of unrepentant full-on practicing gays.

My comments:

When one considers the life and deeds of the extremely evil lifelong pedophile Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong, its hard to believe that the other leaders of Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) movement didn’t report him to the NSW Police in 1999 and that they sheltered him for five years until Frank Houston died in November 2004.

Why did they protect their founding father Frank Houston- this evil criminal pedophile?

Who were the chief architects of this crime of pedophile protection?

 

The leaders of Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) movement that should be charged with pedophile protection crimes:

These are the leaders of Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) movement that should be charged with pedophile protection crimes.

The relevant NSW Legislation is the CHILDREN AND YOUNG PERSONS (CARE AND PROTECTION) ACT 1998 – SECT 23.

The Australian Christian Churches (ACC) is the new name for the Australian Assemblies of God (AOG) since Brian Houston renamed it in 2007.

The crimes are firstly that Frank Houston was not reported to the Police in 1999, when all the leaders of Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches movement were made aware of serious pedophile crimes committed over decades by Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong, and secondly that they colluded in sheltering the pedophile Frank Houston from the NSW Police for five years from 1999 to November 2004, when he died.

The following twelve men and one woman, Bobbie Houston, should all be charged with these crimes under NSW Law.

 

These leaders who should be charged 

These leaders who should be charged include:

Pastor Brian Houston the current Co-Head Pastor of Hillsong International (with his wife Bobbie).

Pastor Bobbie Houston, the Co-Head Pastor of Hillsong International, with her husband Brian.

George Aghajanian, the long-time Hillsong Business Manager.

Nabi Saleh, former owner of Gloria Jean Coffee and long time Hillsong elder.

Pastor Keith Ainge, the General Secretary of the Assemblies of God (AOG) at the time of the crimes.

Pastor John McMartin, the long-time NSW AOG/ ACC President. On the Australian National AOG Executive.

Pastor John Lewis, an Australian AoG Executive member at the time of these crimes. John Lewis has been very quiet about these matters.

Pastor Wayne Alcorn, an Australian AOG Executive member and long-time Houston supporter. Wayne Alcorn is the current President of the Australian Australian Christian Churches movement.

Pastor Joel A’Bell. Hillsong Australia Head Pastor. Long-time Hillsong pastor since the 1990s.

Dr Gordon Lee, Frank Houston’s personal doctor and a long-standing Hillsong leader. Dr Gordon Lee is currently a Hillsong elder.

Pastor Robert Fergusson, one of the most long-standing Hillsong pastors after Bobbie and Brian Houston.

Dr Jo Thomas, a long-standing Hillsong leader. Dr Jo Thomas is currently a Hillsong elder.

Pastor Ian Woods, who sheltered Frank Houston at Hawkesbury AOG (known as Hawkesbury Christian Centre) from 2000 for a few years until Frank Houston’s health began to fail.

I don’t know Joel personally.

Joel started at Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney at the City Church in Danks Street Waterloo in the late 1990s just before I stopped going there in 2000. I was a lay pastor there in the 1980s in charge of ten home fellowships with 150-200 people in my care. I raised up and led the leaders of these ten home fellowships.

Later I also partnered with Laurie and Heather Murphy in founding Hillsong’s Glebe Outreach Church which is located in the Sydney inner city suburb of Glebe. Laurie and Heather are long-time friends of mine.

I was there from the beginning of Christian Life Centre (CLC) Darlinghurst in 1981.

in 1977 Frank Houston started the church in a Sydney Eastern suburbs home then at Sherbrooke Hall in Double Bay.

Then CLC moved to the corner of 200 Goulburn Street in 1981.

Later IICM the  Christian Life Centre (CLC) Darlinghurst Bible College was started located on level 10, 162-166 Goulburn Street Darlinghurst. Dave Sayers and I worked for two years doing building projects around these premises. I as a carpenter and Dave was my trades assistant.

Nobody involved at CLC Darlinghurst had any idea that Frank Houston was a lifelong secret pedophile except possibly in son Brian who may have been sexually abused as a little boy. I’d heard allegations of a child abuse scandal involving Frank Houston at Lower Hutt Assemblies of God in New Zealand but I had trouble believing they were true. Its long story which I’ve covered in many articles on this site.

Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney is the third name for Hillsong’s operations in Sydney Australia.

The first name was Christian Life Centre (CLC) Darlinghurst. The second name was Christian Life Centre (CLC) Waterloo and the third name was Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney.

The fourth name was Hillsong City Church and Hillsong Church Baulkham Hills .

The fifth name is the current name Hillsong City Campus and Hillsong Hills Campus.

Joel A’Bell suddenly appeared in the late 1990s when he was introduced to the City congregation by Pastor Jonathan Wilson, who was for a short period the co-head pastor of CLC Sydney along with Pastor Robert Fergusson. These two Englishmen by descent were put in charge of Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney by Brian Houston in conference with the senior elders at Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney

The paedophile Frank Houston had been sidelined and we, the members of CLC Sydney, were told he was retiring.

The long-time participants found it hard to believe Frank Houston was “retiring” because he’d always said he’d never retire and that wanted to die in the saddle.

One of Frank Houston’s favourite sayings was, “I’d rather re-fire than retire”.

From the now revealed pedophile Frank Houston’s secret actions he wasn’t thinking of retirement but was thinking “I’d rather abuse little boys than little girls for the rest of my life on earth until I die and go to be with the devil and his demons in Hades” As Frank Houston got nearer death he became more and more scared until he lost his mind with the stress near the end.

I was at Christian Life Centre Sydney from 1981 until 2000. Continuously from 1981 to 1992 and then from 1997-2000.

I haven’t seen or heard Joel A’Bell speak since 2000. Small mercies. It was like eating candy floss for dinner. Too much pink colour. Too much sugar. To much air between the floss Prosperity Gospel and lifestyle soft-sop particles instead of Biblical solids.

 

"Pastor" Joel A'Bell offering his sweet homilies about Pat and warning off "the haters". Now with egg all over his face. "I find these public comments about Pat to be unloving. He is well on track in his restoration". Oh dear Joel- so naive too. Pat Mesiti really pulled the wool over your eyes too.

“Pastor” Joel A’Bell offering his sweet homilies about Pat Mesiti and warning off “the haters” on his Facebook page. Now with egg all over his face. Joel A’Bell: “I find these public comments about Pat to be unloving. He is well on track in his restoration”. Oh dear Joel- so naive too. Pat Mesiti really pulled the wool over your eyes. Please could you post a comment on how you all at Hillsong are going to do another divine miracle and remove from every newspaper in the world how a Hillsong pastor bashed his wife on New Years Eve. That would be the ultimate task for the Hillsong spin department. I mean Hillsong media.

 

I recall the ebullient Pastor Jonathan Wilson announcing to Christian Life Centre Sydney (early name for Hillsong) in the late 1990s that young Joel A’Bell was the new young gun Youth Pastor. Seems like a long time ago.

Joel showed up at just the wrong time from a legal point of view.

Joel was able to participate in the crimes of pedophile protection.

 

Brian Houston of Hillsong, the pedophile Frank Houston’s son, said publicly to the Royal Commission, “dad told me he was out of control (with his pedophilia) in the 1960s and 1970s”.

It is unknown when Brian Houston knew his father was a pedophile. Brian says it was 1999 but I think it was probably in the 1960s when Brian turned 7.

 

Brian houston. Has been recommended by the Australian Royal Commission to be charged for not reporting and for protecting a pedophile.

The 1950s to 1970s were when the evil pedophile Frank Houston abused numerous little boys. His sexual preference was always very young and male. His favoured demography was in the 7 to 12 year range.

All the times he did these perverse acts, and there were possibly hundreds of victims, he was a Christian pastor.

All these perverse acts on children were done secretly.

When challenged about them Frank Houston denied doing them and viciously attacked his accusers.

 

The lifelong evil criminal pedophile Frank Houston who sexually abuse possible over four hundred little boys in his lifetime. Brian said he knows of sic victims now, He's lying because he knows there are far more. I've evidence of 13 so far and counting.

The lifelong evil criminal pedophile Frank Houston who sexually abused possibly over four hundred little boys in his lifetime.

 

I have established 13 young male victims.

11 boys aged 7 to 12 and one male teen aged 15 and one teen ANZ1 who suicided.

Brian Houston has moved his public position on the number of victims from the position he held from 1999 until the Royal Commission of one boy victim, even though he knew about at least 9 victims.

That is, Brian Houston told everyone including the Sydney media from 1999 until 2014 that there was “only one boy victim in New Zealand over 30 years ago”, even though the Royal Commission has shown he knew about Sydney boy victim AHA and at least 8 other victims all this time.

Brian knew about victim AHA, victim WNZ1 because he contacted Brian by email in the mid-2000s and Brian replied, the six Lower Hutt victims and Brian knew about Peter Fowler, a 15 year old Lower Hutt, New Zealand boy who went public in the 1980s with Pastor Philip Powell’s support.

“One boy victim in New Zealand over 30 years ago” is what the Hillsong website said in 2012 when I began investigating the subject of Frank Houston’s pedophilia. This is what Brian Houston told the Sydney Morning Herald and other media organisations many times between 1999 and 2014. There is plenty of evidence of this on-line and in the Royal commissions transcripts.

This statement of Brian Houston’s that there was “only one boy victim in New Zealand over 30 years ago” was a lie told untold times by Brian and Hillsong media.

How can a Christian pastor lie? Ask Brian Houston. He’s an expert. He does it every day. His whole life is a lie. That’s why he’s a criminal recommended by the Royal Commission for prosecution and an evil cult leader.

Brian’s current position which he revealed to Sydney channel nine’s ‘Inside Story’ program is six victims.

Why do I bother writing hundreds of articles about the Houstons and Hillsong if they don’t listen?

I’ve established 13 victims but the total is far higher.

The article on this site, “Pastor Frank Houston. Part one. Frank Houston’s pedophile activities”, originally published on 13 September 2012, and updated regularly since, is a full known history of Frank Houston’s pedophile activities.

If you google this title or “Frank Houston abuse” you’ll find it.

I have outlined the 13 known victims in this article.

This site has the most information by far about the Houstons, Hillsong and Frank Houston’s pedophilia than any other source or site. There are over 900 articles on this site and about 600 are on Christianity. Hundreds of them are about Brian Houston, Frank Houston, Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) movement. The ACC is the name for the Australian Assemblies of God since 2007.

The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse was influenced by two main sources to examine the case of Frank Houston, Brian Houston, Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches movement.

These two sources are victim AHA’s story of sexual abuse by Frank Houston and my accounts and the testimonies of multiple victims on this site. Three victims have been discovered through this blog site: SA1. WNZ1 and ANZ1 who suicided as a direct result of Frank Houston abusing him. RIP ANZ1. Justice will come for you soon.

 

Pastor Joel A’Bell

 

brian houston131e_bish_cigar-1

 

Joel A’Bell been Brian Houston’s lacky for over 25 years and done nothing and said nothing publicly or to the Police about all the pedophile crimes of Hillsong.

Joel A’Bell turned a blind eye and said nothing when Brian Houston, George Aghajanian, John McMartin, John Lewis and all the other Australian Christian Churches and Hillsong top leaders colluded to remove the evil lifelong pedophile Frank Houston from the spotlight.

They sent him “up the Hawkesbury” to Ian Wood at Hawkesbury Christian Centre, an Assemblies of God church, and hid Frank Houston there.

When Frank Houston became old and frail and had dementia they moved him to an old folks home on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Again away from the spotlight.

Joel A’Bell a Hillsong pastor who was part of the Hillsong leadership inner circle saw all these crafty moves and did nothing.

This is why he is culpable.

This is why Joel A’Bell must be charged with pedophile protection crimes, along with the other 12 men and one woman, Bobbie Houston, outlined above.

 

Note to NSW Police:

Joel A’Bell is the lead pastor at Hillsong Baulkham Hills.

When you go to arrest Brian Houston, he’s the tall man with the hair transplants and botox in the largest office with no paperwork or records in it. They were all shredded a long time ago.

Down the corridor in one of the larger offices you’ll find George Aghajanian, the Hillsong Business manager. All the paperwork in there was changed in 2014 after the Royal Commission. All the old records have been shredded. Everything is now 100 per cent compliant.

NSW Police. Knock on the Hillsong door and you’ll catch three crooks at once: Brian Houston CEO, George Aghajanian Hillsong Business Manager and Joel A’Bell lead pastor of Hillsong Australia. You might even find your boss NSW Police Commissioner visiting his friend Brian Houston. But if Andrew Scipione is smart he might consider staying away from Hillsong for a while. Maybe forever. Sure Andrew Scipione might visit his close pal Brian in jail but that mightn’t look good for a NSW Police Commissioner.

Andrew Scipione NSW Police Commissioner.

Andrew Scipione NSW Police Commissioner. A close friend of Brian Houston of Hillsong Church. Has dinner with Brian and their wives sometimes at their homes and attends Hillsong Conferences at Homebush each July. May not be in the public interest or in Andrew Scipione’s personal interest to associate with the criminal pedophile protector Pastor Brian Houston of Hillsong Church anymore.

Evidence at the Royal Commission today. Pastor Brian Houston (in 2000 to a boy sex abuse victim of his father Frank Houston, who was abused in Australia from age 7 to 12): "You tempted my father so he abused you". Victim: "Did your father abuse you too?" Pastor Brian's response. Brian got angry and slammed the phone down on the victim. God help those who are under Pastor Brian's leadership. If God doesn't help them certainly Pastor Brian Houston of Hillsong and the Australian AOG/ ACC movement won't.

Pastor Brian Houston of Hillsong Church at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The Australian Royal Commission has recommended that Pastor Brian Houston be charged with pedophile crimes. This will happen soon. Maybe in 2016 or by early 2017.

In it’s Findings of October 2015 The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Response to Child Sexual Abuse found Brian Houston guilty of pedophile protection offences. Brian has since increased his prayer life from one minute a day to 24 hours a day. But Brian still has no empathy, no compassion and hasn’t offered any help or compensation to the boy victims of his father the lifelong pedophile Frank Houston, the founder and senior elder and father figure of Hillsong Church.

Tony Venn-Brown. Gay evangelist talking with Pastor Joel A’Bell Head of Hillsong Australia about how Hillsong can become more gay.

 

The following is a Facebook dialogue a week ago on 10 April 2016 between Pastor Joel A’Bell, Head of Hillsong Australia, and Tony Venn-Brown, a leading Australian Assemblies of God (AOG) evangelist from the 1980s who ‘came out’ as gay, abandoned his family and Christian ministry circa 1990.

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti was Tony Venn-Brown’s assistant evangelist.

Then in 1990 when Tony Venn-Brown ‘came out’ as a homosexual, “Pastor” Pat Mesiti took on Tony Venn- Brown’s mantle as the leading Australian AOG evangelist.

The Australian AOG is now called the Australian Christian Churches since Pastor Brian Houston, the Head of Hillsong, renamed it and reincorporated it in 2007. The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse accused Brian Houston of doing this to try to cheat the boy sexual abuse victims of his father, the pedophile Frank Houston, out of compensation.

The pedophile Frank Houston founded Hillsong Church in 1997 in Double Bay, Sydney. It was not founded by “Pastor” Brian Houston.

The first name for Hillsong Church was Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst which I attend from 1981 to 1990. I was a leading lay pastor with ten home fellowships under my care in Inner City Sydney. I attended there again from the late 1990s to 2000 and was there when Brian Houston took over Hillsong City Church from his father Frank.

The significance of this exchange on Facebook is that it shows that Hillsong at its highest levels is sympathetic to, and in dialogue with, gay Christian leaders like Tony Venn-Brown.

ABBI.ORG.AU is Tony Venn Brown’s gay Christian support and gay Christian promotional organisation.

Pastor Joel A’Bell as head of Hillsong Australia is happy to openly and publicly make arrangements to have coffee with Tony Venn-Brown, a leading proponent of the acceptance of gays in Pentecostal and other Protestant Churches.

In the last article on this site we read that Josh Canfield, the openly gay worship leader at Hillsong New York City, writing on his Twitter page that he’s been a worship leader at Hillsong New York City for eight years.

Not only is Josh Canfield a Hillsong NYC worship leader of eight years but Pastors Carl Lentz and Joel Houston, Brian Houston’s eldest son, brought Josh Canfield over from Hillsong London to lead the worship at Hillsong NYC.

The pattern at Hillsong Church all over the world is towards the acceptance of gays in their churches and allowing gays in ministry position. In the last blog articles on this site I’ve explained how gays are ministering in the choir at Hillsong New York City. There are many gays at Hillsong London.

Hillsong London’s musical performances are very camp.

Tony Venn-Brown was the Australian Assemblies of God’s (AOG) most prominent and successful evangelist in the 1980s.

I was involved heavily at the first Hillsong church in Darlinghurst in the 1980s. In those days it was called Christian Life Centre (CLC) Darlinghurst. Christian Life Centre was a common name for Assemblies of God churches in those days in Australia and New Zealand.

I recall Tony Venn-Brown turning up there in 1983. Tony was a very smooth and articulate communicator. A little too much for me and he was akin to the American motivational speakers in his manner and speech.

Tony married and had two children. He became very well-known throughout Australia and would come back to CLC Darlinghurst, which was his base, and regale us with his exploits.

Then suddenly about 1990 Tony left the AOG ministry and said he was now gay.

 

Tony the gay

Tony the gay

 

For decades Tony has been the gay who won’t go away from the main-stream Christian church.

Most gays who have left the church behind find their home in the gay and lesbian community.

But not Tony.

Tony has always had a yearning to be accepted in the mainstream Christian community- as a gay Christian.

This has been a hard calling for Tony.

But as Hillsong Church is allowing gays like Josh Canfield and Reed Kelly at Hillsong NYC into positions of leadership and influence, the social currents at Hillsong Church are turning in Tony’s favour.

So its interesting that Pastor Joel A’Bell, the head of Hillsong Australia, is chumming up to Tony Venn-Brown.

In the next article on this site I’ll explore some of Tony Venn-Brown’s belief systems to illustrate where Hillsong is heading with it’s acceptance and empowerment of unrepentant full-on practicing gays.

Donald Elley of Bellingen the writer of this blog-site. My dog Mac and I can’t understand why Hillsong is so gay. Mac, being a boy, is looking for a bitch. Don’t worry Mac. There are plenty out there for you when you grow bigger. Mac, you’re lucky in “The Lucky Country” (Australia) – I won’t believe in getting dogs spayed (de-sexed). Australia isn’t The Lucky Country at the moment – we’re in a severe drought and we have monkeys governing us – take Brian Houston of Hillsong’s close friend and protector Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison for example. How Unlucky can Australia be having a Hillsong Money-Cult Prime Minister leading us?

 

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Brian Houston Hillsong head pastor at the annual Hillsong Conference in Sydney in July 2019.

 

Scott Morrison worshipping his Money-Cult Prosperity Gospel god – Scott Morrison, know as “Sco Mo” had better be careful about how he acts towards Brian Houston and his impending fate.

In this article I’m continuing in the theme of articles on this site about Hillsong’s embracing of homosexuality.

I’m now going to have a look at an article about what Tony Venn-Brown terms, “The Rainbow Revival”.

 

Rainbow Flag 4

 

The Rainbow used Biblically

The Rainbow concept Biblically connotes God’s promise to mankind of favour and blessing, and His promise not to wipe out mankind from the earth by a mega-flood.

 

The Rainbow used Religiously and Politically

The Rainbow Flag and Rainbow Colours are almost synonymous with gay pride and the gay rights movement today.

However the Rainbow is used widely in religious and political circles throughout the world.

Nelson Mandela used it after the break-up of Apartheid in South Africa to promote the notion of acceptance and equality of all South Africa’s diverse racial groups.

Nelson Mandela promoted the idea of South Africa becoming a ‘Rainbow Nation’ in which all people’s regardless of ethnicity, culture and religious word-view would live in harmony in South Africa.

The rainbow symbol and rainbow serpent is used widely by religions from Hinduism to the Australian Aboriginal.

 

 

The Hillsong Rainbow Revival philosophy: Darlene Zschech the Hillsong mega-star singer sings for the Pope with an audience of diverse Christians and celebrates it as a gathering of religious and cultural diversity in the name of Christ. 

 

Darlene Zschech a

Last year Darlene Zschech the Hillsong mega-star singer sang for Pope Francis at the Vatican along with a diverse group of Christians from all over the world and excitedly wrote about it on her Facebook page.

Darlene was attacked for paying homage to the Pope but was defiant in the face of opposition and criticism.

Darlene can’t see anything wrong with her actions.

Darlene Zschech favours all-inclusive gatherings of  Christians from all over the world where Christians unite despite all mankind’s diversities.

In Darlene’s mind it’s as if in Christ all people’s and all faiths can be united.

This Universalist approach to Christianity is highly dangerous from a Biblical point of view.

Tony Venn-Brown’s Rainbow Revival is only one step further than this approach.

Hillsong Church is travelling down this route and are already deeply entrenched in their own Rainbow Revival- particularly at Hillsong New York City, Hillsong Los Angeles and Hillsong London where things are getting very camp.

For more details please see my article on this site ‘Darlene Zschech Hillsong worship leader meets the Pope’ published on 15 August 2015. If you google this title you’ll find it.

 

Hillsong is embracing the Rainbow Movement- the Rainbow snake- a symbol of Lucifer of old.

The Rainbow Revival

In the article below Tony Venn- Brown has used the phrase “The Rainbow Revival”.

This is not a new term Tony has invented. Rather it’s a borrow from the gay movement in general and from the gay liberal liturgical movement world-wide.

Tony Venn-Brown sees himself as a gay prophet and gay evangelist of a New Rainbow World Order where humanity and society including the church of the Lord Jesus Christ accepts gays and lesbians and welcomes them into their bosom.

Rainbow flag (LGBT movement)

From Wikipedia

“The rainbow flag is a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) pride and LGBT social movements in use since the 1970s.

The rainbow flag, commonly the gay pride flag and LGBT pride flag, is a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) pride and LGBT social movements. (Other uses of rainbow flags include a symbol of peace.) The colors reflect the diversity of the LGBT community, and the flag is often used as a symbol of gay pride when it comes to LGBT rights marches. It originated in Northern California, but is now used worldwide.

Designed by San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker in 1978, the design has undergone several revisions to first remove then re-add colors due to widely available fabrics. As of 2008, the most common variant consists of six stripes, with the colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. The flag is commonly flown horizontally, with the red stripe on top, as it would be in a natural rainbow.”

Tony Venn-Brown

Tony Venn-Brown was a famous evangelist in Australian Assemblies of God circles when I was at the first Hillsong Church in the 1980s.

Tony ‘came out’ as a homosexual circa 1990 and single-handedly destroyed his marriage, his wife, abandoned his God-given family unit, his Christian ministry and his credibility to be ever taken seriously again by Bible-believing Christians.

This first incarnation of Hillsong Church in the 1980s was called Christian Life Centre (CLC) Darlinghurst. It was founded by “Pastor’ Brian Houston’s father, the secret homosexual and pedophile Frank Houston in 1977.

The secret homosexual and pedophile Frank Houston- the founder of Hillsong Church

Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong Church and Brian Houston’s father, was found out in 1999 at the age of 79 to have been a lifelong secret homosexual and pedophile who sexually abused hundreds of little boys and young teens while pretending to be a Christian pastor.

Frank Houston, like Satanists, the Illuminati and many pedophiles used the Christian ministry as a cover and disguise to breach the natural defence mechanisms of Christian families and sexual abuse their little children.

These are the origins of Hillsong Church.

Tony Venn-Brown the spin-doctor

My memory of Tony Venn-Brown was of a Christian spin-doctor akin to the likes of all those motivational speakers who make their living ‘on the circuit’ – Like what the wife-bashing preacher “Pastor” Pat Mesiti of Hillsong and C3 Churches was trying to do before he bashed his wife in the head while wasted with alcohol last New Years Eve.

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti the wife-basher, serial adulterer and self-confessed sex addict 

It is unknown whether Pat Mesiti still has any invitations to speak on the motivational circuit since this Domestic Violence event and his three subsequent appearances at Parramatta Court this year.

It’s interesting to note that “Pastor” Pat Mesiti of Hillsong Church and C3 Church was “Pastor” Tony Venn-Brown’s assistant before Tony ‘came out’ as a gay.

Pat Mesiti took over from Tony Venn-Brown in the AOG evangelist role and look what a mess he’s made of it.

 

"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 wife basher, serial adulterer, self-confessed sex addict- caught using his Hillsong credit card on prostitutes- going to Parramatta court in February this year for bashing up his second wife Andrea on New Year’s Eve “while heavily intoxicated.” Still a Hillsong Church and C3 Church pastor- specialises in a ministry of Christian domestic violence, prostitution, Christian sex addiction and Christian credit card use for illicit sexual purposes.

 

Tony Venn-Brown and Pat Mesiti are both spiritual and amoral spawn of Frank and Brian Houston

It’s only a logical progression that these men would sow error and disaster of the greatest kind on the Blessed Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, given these men- Tony Venn-Brown and Pat Mesiti- are both spiritual and amoral spawn of Frank and Brian Houston.

 

The lifelong evil criminal pedophile Frank Houston who sexually abuse possible over four hundred little boys in his lifetime. Brian said he knows of sic victims now, He's lying because he knows there are far more. I've evidence of 13 so far and counting.

Tony Venn-Brown and Pat Mesiti- Both spawn of Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong Church, the secret homosexual and child rapist, and both spawn of Brian Houston the secret church rapist- who has secretly siphoned millions off the Church, the Blessed Body of Christ, for over three decades- without shame- and lives like a king on this earth- while the victims of his father’s sexual abuse rot and suffer terribly.

In the last article on this site I revealed how “Pastor” Joel A’Bell is having coffee meetings and dialogue with Tony Venn-Brown about matters pertaining to accommodating gays at Hillsong Church, being sensitive to them, and meeting their needs.

This may all sound fine but the intent of both Hillsong Church and Tony Venn-Brown is not to call homosexuals to repent and abandon their unholy Biblically immoral lifestyle, but rather to accommodate them and to allow them to be part of Hillsong Church without changing at all.

This is why the following article almost makes me puke.

It fills me with a great sadness and also a great repulsion.

Its not that I feel personally confronted by homosexuality.

Its that the god-part in me- what the Holy Spirit and the Holy Word of God has put into me over a whole lifetime of 59 years, and what the Blessed Holy Spirit in me- cries out against everything Tony Venn-Brown is saying and writing.

 

I’ll now publish Tony Venn-Brown’s article and then write some more comments after it.

Article: Azusa Street – Jesus Revolution – Rainbow Revival

by Tony Venn-Brown

 

Azusa Street Revival

Azusa Street- Jesus Revolution- Rainbow Revival

 

The Azusa Street Revival

“Those who know Pentecostal history well, know it began 110 years ago in Los Angeles and was called the Azusa Street Revival. The impact of the Pentecostal movement on Christianity was tantamount to that of the reformation in the 16th century. From very, very humble beginnings in 1906, today one out of every four Christians worldwide would identify as Pentecostal or Charismatic.

 

 

azusa street revival Early Pentecostal Leaders The Azusa Street Revival embraced diversity

Early Pentecostal Leaders
The Azusa Street Revival embraced diversity

 

Not only was it a remarkable move of the Spirit it was ground breaking in its embracing of diversity. In a world where people were divided racially, economically and culturally, men, women, children, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, rich, poor, illiterate and educated came together in the hall in Azusa Street. The intermingling of races and the group’s encouragement of women in leadership was quite remarkable. Remarkable, as was the first outpouring of the Spirit on male and female disciples and later on non-Jews (Gentiles) recorded in the New Testament.

Whilst the church might be resistant, the Spirit has a way of breaking down barriers and creating equality.

The Azusa Street Revival began in 1906, during the “Jim Crow” era of racial segregation. The Jim Crow laws mandated the segregation of public schools, public places, and public transportation, employment and the segregation of restrooms, restaurants, and drinking fountains for whites and blacks. There was no segregation at Azusa Street. Black and white were equals.

At Azusa Street women were allowed to preach and accepted as equal, fourteen years prior to women receiving suffrage in the United States.

Pentecostalism was a radical movement frowned upon by many mainstream Christians who prophesied its demise as sensationalist apostasy.

 

The Jesus Revolution

May 5, 1973: Hundreds of Calvary Chapel members line Corona del Mar beach for baptism ceremony.

Another remarkable movement was the Jesus Revolution of the 1960’s and 70’s which began on the west coast of California. Time magazine’s front page article in 1971 reported that 1,000’s of hippies and young people were becoming Christians. The Pentecostal/Evangelical church and culture, at that time, was incapable of relating to, let alone reaching out to the youth of the day. It was a movement where God demonstrated His Spirit would not be imprisoned within church walls or barriers of religiosity and tradition. The movement, initially outside the walls of Church, was eventually embraced and contributed to the growth of the mega-churches, entire denominations and birthed contemporary Christian music.

 

The Rainbow Revival

For many decades, and still in some parts of Christianity, the words ‘gay’ and ‘Christian’ were contradictory and the term ‘gay Christian’ an oxymoron.

Globally the church has been grappling with the issue of homosexuality, welcoming LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) people into congregations, understanding their relationships and their place in the church. Some are just beginning the journey. Others remain resistant as did religious people with the Azusa Street Revival and the Jesus Revolution.

Today we are seeing what has been called the Rainbow Revival. In many ways the Rainbow Revival is not unlike the Jesus Revolution and the Azusa Street Revival.

 

LGBT Christian Conference Hong Kong

LGBT Christian Conference Hong Kong

 

The Gay Christian movement was birthed in a lounge room, also in Los Angeles, in 1968, when the Rev Troy Perry, a defrocked Pentecostal minister, held the first meeting of what would become the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC). So many though were unable to attend an MCC but the internet provided the vehicle for many gay Christians to connect, share experiences and not feel so isolated. The gay Christian movement functioned mostly outside traditional Christianity and was viewed by the majority of the Christian world as apostates and heretics.

Today there 100,000’s of Gay Christians who have reconciled their faith and their sexuality and multitudes of straight Christians who have shifted in attitude and understanding. Initially MCC was known as the ‘gay church’; a place where gay and lesbian believers, who’d been rejected by churches, friends and families could find safety and refuge. But the landscape has changed significantly. There are now many new independent churches, although pastored by gay men and lesbians, have become inclusive of all humanity regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Knowing firsthand what judgement and condemnation is like they have often they have lead the way to demonstrate what acceptance, non-judgement and grace looks like. They are churches where the sign all welcome, actually means ALL welcome”.

LGBT Affirming Churches
Annual growth of LGBT affirming churches

The number of mainstream churches and denominations who welcome and affirm LGBT people has been growing exponentially and over the last four decades expanded to over 7,000 churches covering over 90 different denominations across 46 countries, as far as we know

When I wrote the article Why Australian Pentecostals Will Embrace Gay & Lesbian People in 2009 things were just beginning to happen here in Australia and Bayside Church’s pastor, Rob Buckingham preached his historic sermon Real Christianity is Accepting. While we wait for churches to boldly take a more public stand, I have had numerous conversations with Pastors and church leaders who are open. Some have fully accepted LGBT people into their churches, who are in long-term monogamous relationships, they are serving in the church, the congregation has accepted them…….but they are not public about it at this stage because of the backlash they will receive denominationally.

Can you imagine what it is going to be like for gay young people of the future growing up in Churches, and they won’t be told it’s a lifestyle choice, an abomination, have demons cast out of them or spend torturous, wasted years in programs attempting to change them. I imagine it all the time. I have a dream.

Unlike the experience of so many of us they will be able to grow up in a loving and accepting environment and thrive as individuals in their lives and faith. No depression, not rejected by Christian friends and family or have to deal with mental health issues, self loathing or thoughts of ending their lives because they are gay or transgender.

I often wonder, if powerful movements like the Azusa Street Revival and the Jesus Revolution were happening today then we wouldn’t have needed the Rainbow Revival and could have bypassed all the angst, struggle and suicides.

My comments:

 

The writer Donald Elley of Bellingen

The writer Donald Elley of Bellingen. Feeling queasy after reading Tony Venn-Brown’s Rainbow Revival article. Time for a swim to wash all the homosexual propaganda off me.

 

Please note that this article was published very recently on 16 April 2016.

It is a sign of Tony Venn-Brown’s confidence that he’d even utter such blasphemies against the blessed Holy Spirit of God.

If you’re a Bible believing Christian who believes in the Holy Spirit- please note the ‘Holy’ Spirit- I guess like me you feel like you’ve heard it all now.

How much further off the rails in respect to Biblical faith and Biblical truth can the world go now.

How much further off the rails in respect to Biblical faith and Biblical truth can the Hillsong go now.

Tony Venn-Brown isn’t a voice from within Hillsong but Hillsong are dialoguing with him and this is the direction from Brian Houston’s own mouth that Hillsong Church is heading. Please read the recent articles on this site for details.

I’ve never taken Tony Venn-Brown seriously and still don’t.

What I do take seriously is the Poison of Hillsong Church which is spreading virtually unopposed throughout the earth. It must be stopped somehow. Hillsong Church is more dangerous than anyone imagines.

To propose that there is currently a Holy Spirit inspired gay Rainbow Revival being poured out on earth only comes from one origin- and that origin is earthly sensual and devilish.

In fact to even suggest that there could be a gay Holy Spirit Revival is tantamount to blasphemy.

Please note that Tony Venn-Brown is the type of person that “Pastor” Brian Houston Head of Hillsong Church, “Pastors” Carl Lentz and Joel Houston Head Pastors of the 7000 member Hillsong New York City, and “Pastor” Joel A’Bell Head of the 15,000 member Hillsong Australia are fellowshipping with and ‘having dialogue with’.

Spiritually Tony Venn-Brown’s ideas are more dangerous than poison.

In this article I’m continuing in the theme of recent articles on this site about Hillsong’s embracing of homosexuality.

I’m now going to have a look at an article about what Tony Venn-Brown terms, “The Rainbow Revival”.

 

Rainbow Flag 4

 

The Rainbow used Biblically

The Rainbow concept Biblically connotes God’s promise to mankind of favour and blessing, and His promise not to wipe out mankind from the earth by a mega-flood.

 

The Rainbow used Religiously and Politically

The Rainbow Flag and Rainbow Colours are almost synonymous with gay pride and the gay rights movement today.

However the Rainbow is used widely in religious and political circles throughout the world.

Nelson Mandela used it after the break-up of Apartheid in South Africa to promote the notion of acceptance and equality of all South Africa’s diverse racial groups.

Nelson Mandela promoted the idea of South Africa becoming a ‘Rainbow Nation’ in which all people’s regardless of ethnicity, culture and religious word-view would live in harmony in South Africa.

The rainbow symbol and rainbow serpent is used widely by religions from Hinduism to the Australian Aboriginal.

 

 

The Hillsong Rainbow Revival philosophy: Darlene Zschech the Hillsong mega-star singer sings for the Pope with an audience of diverse Christians and celebrates it as a gathering of religious and cultural diversity in the name of Christ.

Last year Darlene Zschech the Hillsong mega-star singer sang for Pope Francis at the Vatican along with a diverse group of Christians from all over the world and excitedly wrote about it on her Facebook page.

Darlene was attacked for paying homage to the Pope but was defiant in the face of opposition and criticism.

Darlene can’t see anything wrong with her actions.

Darlene Zschech favours all-inclusive gatherings of  Christians from all over the world where Christians unite despite all mankind’s diversities.

In Darlene’s mind it’s as if in Christ all people’s and all faiths can be united.

This Universalist approach to Christianity is highly dangerous from a Biblical point of view.

Tony Venn-Brown’s Rainbow Revival is only one step further than this approach.

Hillsong Church is travelling down this route and are already deeply entrenched in their own Rainbow Revival- particularly at Hillsong New York City, Hillsong Los Angeles and Hillsong London where things are getting very camp.

For more details please see my article on this site ‘Darlene Zschech Hillsong worship leader meets the Pope’ published on 15 August 2015. If you google this title you’ll find it.

 

Hillsong is embracing the Rainbow Movement- the Rainbow snake- a symbol of Lucifer of old.

The Rainbow Revival

In the article below Tony Venn- Brown has used the phrase “The Rainbow Revival”.

This is not a new term Tony has invented. Rather it’s a borrow from the gay movement in general and from the gay liberal liturgical movement world-wide.

Tony Venn-Brown sees himself as a gay prophet and gay evangelist of a New Rainbow World Order where humanity and society including the church of the Lord Jesus Christ accepts gays and lesbians and welcomes them into their bosom.

Rainbow flag (LGBT movement)

From Wikipedia

“The rainbow flag is a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) pride and LGBT social movements in use since the 1970s.

The rainbow flag, commonly the gay pride flag and LGBT pride flag, is a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) pride and LGBT social movements. (Other uses of rainbow flags include a symbol of peace.) The colors reflect the diversity of the LGBT community, and the flag is often used as a symbol of gay pride when it comes to LGBT rights marches. It originated in Northern California, but is now used worldwide.

Designed by San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker in 1978, the design has undergone several revisions to first remove then re-add colors due to widely available fabrics. As of 2008, the most common variant consists of six stripes, with the colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. The flag is commonly flown horizontally, with the red stripe on top, as it would be in a natural rainbow.”

Tony Venn-Brown

Tony Venn-Brown was a famous evangelist in Australian Assemblies of God circles when I was at the first Hillsong Church in the 1980s.

Tony ‘came out’ as a homosexual circa 1990 and single-handedly destroyed his marriage, his wife, abandoned his God-given family unit, his Christian ministry and his credibility to be ever taken seriously again by Bible-believing Christians.

This first incarnation of Hillsong Church in the 1980s was called Christian Life Centre (CLC) Darlinghurst. It was founded by “Pastor’ Brian Houston’s father, the secret homosexual and pedophile Frank Houston in 1977.

The secret homosexual and pedophile Frank Houston- the founder of Hillsong Church

Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong Church and Brian Houston’s father, was found out in 1999 at the age of 79 to have been a lifelong secret homosexual and pedophile who sexually abused hundreds of little boys and young teens while pretending to be a Christian pastor.

Frank Houston, like Satanists, the Illuminati and many pedophiles used the Christian ministry as a cover and disguise to breach the natural defence mechanisms of Christian families and sexual abuse their little children.

These are the origins of Hillsong Church.

Tony Venn-Brown the spin-doctor

My memory of Tony Venn-Brown was of a Christian spin-doctor akin to the likes of all those motivational speakers who make their living ‘on the circuit’ – Like what the wife-bashing preacher “Pastor” Pat Mesiti of Hillsong and C3 Churches was trying to do before he bashed his wife in the head while wasted with alcohol last New Years Eve.

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti the wife-basher, serial adulterer and self-confessed sex addict 

It is unknown whether Pat Mesiti still has any invitations to speak on the motivational circuit since this Domestic Violence event and his three subsequent appearances at Parramatta Court this year.

It’s interesting to note that “Pastor” Pat Mesiti of Hillsong Church and C3 Church was “Pastor” Tony Venn-Brown’s assistant before Tony ‘came out’ as a gay.

Pat Mesiti took over from Tony Venn-Brown in the AOG evangelist role and look what a mess he’s made of it.

 

"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 wife basher, serial adulterer, self-confessed sex addict- caught using his Hillsong credit card on prostitutes- going to Parramatta court in February this year for bashing up his second wife Andrea on New Year’s Eve “while heavily intoxicated.” Still a Hillsong Church and C3 Church pastor- specialises in a ministry of Christian domestic violence, prostitution, Christian sex addiction and Christian credit card use for illicit sexual purposes.

 

Tony Venn-Brown and Pat Mesiti are both spiritual and amoral spawn of Frank and Brian Houston

It’s only a logical progression that these men would sow error and disaster of the greatest kind on the Blessed Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, given these men- Tony Venn-Brown and Pat Mesiti- are both spiritual and amoral spawn of Frank and Brian Houston.

 

The lifelong evil criminal pedophile Frank Houston who sexually abuse possible over four hundred little boys in his lifetime. Brian said he knows of sic victims now, He's lying because he knows there are far more. I've evidence of 13 so far and counting.

Tony Venn-Brown and Pat Mesiti- Both spawn of Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong Church, the secret homosexual and child rapist, and both spawn of Brian Houston the secret church rapist- who has secretly siphoned millions off the Church, the Blessed Body of Christ, for over three decades- without shame- and lives like a king on this earth- while the victims of his father’s sexual abuse rot and suffer terribly.

In the last article on this site I revealed how “Pastor” Joel A’Bell is having coffee meetings and dialogue with Tony Venn-Brown about matters pertaining to accommodating gays at Hillsong Church, being sensitive to them, and meeting their needs.

This may all sound fine but the intent of both Hillsong Church and Tony Venn-Brown is not to call homosexuals to repent and abandon their unholy Biblically immoral lifestyle, but rather to accommodate them and to allow them to be part of Hillsong Church without changing at all.

This is why the following article almost makes me puke.

It fills me with a great sadness and also a great repulsion.

Its not that I feel personally confronted by homosexuality.

Its that the god-part in me- what the Holy Spirit and the Holy Word of God has put into me over a whole lifetime of 59 years, and what the Blessed Holy Spirit in me- cries out against everything Tony Venn-Brown is saying and writing.

 

I’ll now publish Tony Venn-Brown’s article and then write some more comments after it.

Article: Azusa Street – Jesus Revolution – Rainbow Revival

by Tony Venn-Brown

 

Azusa Street Revival

Azusa Street- Jesus Revolution- Rainbow Revival

 

The Azusa Street Revival

“Those who know Pentecostal history well, know it began 110 years ago in Los Angeles and was called the Azusa Street Revival. The impact of the Pentecostal movement on Christianity was tantamount to that of the reformation in the 16th century. From very, very humble beginnings in 1906, today one out of every four Christians worldwide would identify as Pentecostal or Charismatic.

The Azusa Street Revival embraced diversity

 

Not only was it a remarkable move of the Spirit it was ground breaking in its embracing of diversity. In a world where people were divided racially, economically and culturally, men, women, children, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, rich, poor, illiterate and educated came together in the hall in Azusa Street. The intermingling of races and the group’s encouragement of women in leadership was quite remarkable. Remarkable, as was the first outpouring of the Spirit on male and female disciples and later on non-Jews (Gentiles) recorded in the New Testament.

Whilst the church might be resistant, the Spirit has a way of breaking down barriers and creating equality.

The Azusa Street Revival began in 1906, during the “Jim Crow” era of racial segregation. The Jim Crow laws mandated the segregation of public schools, public places, and public transportation, employment and the segregation of restrooms, restaurants, and drinking fountains for whites and blacks. There was no segregation at Azusa Street. Black and white were equals.

At Azusa Street women were allowed to preach and accepted as equal, fourteen years prior to women receiving suffrage in the United States.

Pentecostalism was a radical movement frowned upon by many mainstream Christians who prophesied its demise as sensationalist apostasy.

Another remarkable movement was the Jesus Revolution of the 1960’s and 70’s which began on the west coast of California. Time magazine’s front page article in 1971 reported that 1,000’s of hippies and young people were becoming Christians. The Pentecostal/Evangelical church and culture, at that time, was incapable of relating to, let alone reaching out to the youth of the day. It was a movement where God demonstrated His Spirit would not be imprisoned within church walls or barriers of religiosity and tradition. The movement, initially outside the walls of Church, was eventually embraced and contributed to the growth of the mega-churches, entire denominations and birthed contemporary Christian music.

 

The Rainbow Revival

For many decades, and still in some parts of Christianity, the words ‘gay’ and ‘Christian’ were contradictory and the term ‘gay Christian’ an oxymoron.

Globally the church has been grappling with the issue of homosexuality, welcoming LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) people into congregations, understanding their relationships and their place in the church. Some are just beginning the journey. Others remain resistant as did religious people with the Azusa Street Revival and the Jesus Revolution.

Today we are seeing what has been called the Rainbow Revival. In many ways the Rainbow Revival is not unlike the Jesus Revolution and the Azusa Street Revival.

 

LGBT Christian Conference Hong Kong

LGBT Christian Conference Hong Kong

 

The Gay Christian movement was birthed in a lounge room, also in Los Angeles, in 1968, when the Rev Troy Perry, a defrocked Pentecostal minister, held the first meeting of what would become the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC). So many though were unable to attend an MCC but the internet provided the vehicle for many gay Christians to connect, share experiences and not feel so isolated. The gay Christian movement functioned mostly outside traditional Christianity and was viewed by the majority of the Christian world as apostates and heretics.

Today there 100,000’s of Gay Christians who have reconciled their faith and their sexuality and multitudes of straight Christians who have shifted in attitude and understanding. Initially MCC was known as the ‘gay church’; a place where gay and lesbian believers, who’d been rejected by churches, friends and families could find safety and refuge. But the landscape has changed significantly. There are now many new independent churches, although pastored by gay men and lesbians, have become inclusive of all humanity regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Knowing firsthand what judgement and condemnation is like they have often they have lead the way to demonstrate what acceptance, non-judgement and grace looks like. They are churches where the sign all welcome, actually means ALL welcome”.

LGBT Affirming Churches
Annual growth of LGBT affirming churches

The number of mainstream churches and denominations who welcome and affirm LGBT people has been growing exponentially and over the last four decades expanded to over 7,000 churches covering over 90 different denominations across 46 countries, as far as we know

When I wrote the article Why Australian Pentecostals Will Embrace Gay & Lesbian People in 2009 things were just beginning to happen here in Australia and Bayside Church’s pastor, Rob Buckingham preached his historic sermon Real Christianity is Accepting. While we wait for churches to boldly take a more public stand, I have had numerous conversations with Pastors and church leaders who are open. Some have fully accepted LGBT people into their churches, who are in long-term monogamous relationships, they are serving in the church, the congregation has accepted them…….but they are not public about it at this stage because of the backlash they will receive denominationally.

Can you imagine what it is going to be like for gay young people of the future growing up in Churches, and they won’t be told it’s a lifestyle choice, an abomination, have demons cast out of them or spend torturous, wasted years in programs attempting to change them. I imagine it all the time. I have a dream.

Unlike the experience of so many of us they will be able to grow up in a loving and accepting environment and thrive as individuals in their lives and faith. No depression, not rejected by Christian friends and family or have to deal with mental health issues, self loathing or thoughts of ending their lives because they are gay or transgender.

I often wonder, if powerful movements like the Azusa Street Revival and the Jesus Revolution were happening today then we wouldn’t have needed the Rainbow Revival and could have bypassed all the angst, struggle and suicides.

The writer Donald Elley of Bellingen. Feeling queasy after reading Tony Venn-Brown’s Rainbow Revival article. Time for a swim to wash all the homosexual propaganda off me.

 

Please note that this article was published very recently on 16 April 2016.

It is a sign of Tony Venn-Brown’s confidence that he’d even utter such blasphemies against the blessed Holy Spirit of God.

If you’re a Bible believing Christian who believes in the Holy Spirit- please note the ‘Holy’ Spirit- I guess like me you feel like you’ve heard it all now.

How much further off the rails in respect to Biblical faith and Biblical truth can the world go now.

How much further off the rails in respect to Biblical faith and Biblical truth can the Hillsong go now.

Tony Venn-Brown isn’t a voice from within Hillsong but Hillsong are dialoguing with him and this is the direction from Brian Houston’s own mouth that Hillsong Church is heading. Please read the recent articles on this site for details.

Tony Venn-Brown. Gay evangelist talking with Pastor Joel A’Bell Head of Hillsong Australia about how Hillsong can become more gay.

 

The following is a Facebook dialogue a week ago on 10 April 2016 between Pastor Joel A’Bell, Head of Hillsong Australia, and Tony Venn-Brown, a leading Australian Assemblies of God (AOG) evangelist from the 1980s who ‘came out’ as gay, abandoned his family and Christian ministry circa 1990.

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti was Tony Venn-Brown’s assistant evangelist.

Then in 1990 when Tony Venn-Brown ‘came out’ as a homosexual, “Pastor” Pat Mesiti took on Tony Venn- Brown’s mantle as the leading Australian AOG evangelist.

The Australian AOG is now called the Australian Christian Churches since Pastor Brian Houston, the Head of Hillsong, renamed it and reincorporated it in 2007. The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse accused Brian Houston of doing this to try to cheat the boy sexual abuse victims of his father, the pedophile Frank Houston, out of compensation.

The pedophile Frank Houston founded Hillsong Church in 1997 in Double Bay, Sydney. It was not founded by “Pastor” Brian Houston.

The first name for Hillsong Church was Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst which I attend from 1981 to 1990. I was a leading lay pastor with ten home fellowships under my care in Inner City Sydney. I attended there again from the late 1990s to 2000 and was there when Brian Houston took over Hillsong City Church from his father Frank.

The significance of this exchange on Facebook is that it shows that Hillsong at its highest levels is sympathetic to, and in dialogue with, gay Christian leaders like Tony Venn-Brown.

ABBI.ORG.AU is Tony Venn Brown’s gay Christian support and gay Christian promotional organisation.

Pastor Joel A’Bell as head of Hillsong Australia is happy to openly and publicly make arrangements to have coffee with Tony Venn-Brown, a leading proponent of the acceptance of gays in Pentecostal and other Protestant Churches.

In the last article on this site we read that Josh Canfield, the openly gay worship leader at Hillsong New York City, writing on his Twitter page that he’s been a worship leader at Hillsong New York City for eight years.

Not only is Josh Canfield a Hillsong NYC worship leader of eight years but Pastors Carl Lentz and Joel Houston, Brian Houston’s eldest son, brought Josh Canfield over from Hillsong London to lead the worship at Hillsong NYC.

The pattern at Hillsong Church all over the world is towards the acceptance of gays in their churches and allowing gays in ministry position. In the last blog articles on this site I’ve explained how gays are ministering in the choir at Hillsong New York City. There are many gays at Hillsong London.

Hillsong London’s musical performances are very camp.

 

Who is Tony Venn-Brown?

Tony Venn-Brown. Senior member of the gay Christian movement.

 

Tony Venn-Brown was the Australian Assemblies of God’s (AOG) most prominent and successful evangelist in the 1980s.

I was involved heavily at the first Hillsong church in Darlinghurst in the 1980s. In those days it was called Christian Life Centre (CLC) Darlinghurst. Christian Life Centre was a common name for Assemblies of God churches in those days in Australia and New Zealand.

I recall Tony Venn-Brown turning up there in 1983. Tony was a very smooth and articulate communicator. A little too much for me and he was akin to the American motivational speakers in his manner and speech.

Tony married and had two children. He became very well-known throughout Australia and would come back to CLC Darlinghurst, which was his base, and regale us with his exploits.

Then suddenly about 1990 Tony left the AOG ministry and said he was now gay.

 

Tony the gay

Tony the gay

 

For decades Tony has been the gay who won’t go away from the main-stream Christian church.

Most gays who have left the church behind find their home in the gay and lesbian community.

But not Tony.

Tony has always had a yearning to be accepted in the mainstream Christian community- as a gay Christian.

This has been a hard calling for Tony.

But as Hillsong Church is allowing gays like Josh Canfield and Reed Kelly at Hillsong NYC into positions of leadership and influence, the social currents at Hillsong Church are turning in Tony’s favour.

So its interesting that Pastor Joel A’Bell, the head of Hillsong Australia, is chumming up to Tony Venn-Brown.

In the next article on this site I’ll explore some of Tony Venn-Brown’s belief systems to illustrate where Hillsong is heading with it’s acceptance and empowerment of unrepentant full-on practicing gays.

My comments:

When one considers the life and deeds of the extremely evil lifelong pedophile Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong, its hard to believe that the other leaders of Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) movement didn’t report him to the NSW Police in 1999 and that they sheltered him for five years until Frank Houston died in November 2004.

Why did they protect their founding father Frank Houston- this evil criminal pedophile?

Who were the chief architects of this crime of pedophile protection?

 

The leaders of Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) movement that should be charged with pedophile protection crimes:

These are the leaders of Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) movement that should be charged with pedophile protection crimes.

The relevant NSW Legislation is the CHILDREN AND YOUNG PERSONS (CARE AND PROTECTION) ACT 1998 – SECT 23.

The Australian Christian Churches (ACC) is the new name for the Australian Assemblies of God (AOG) since Brian Houston renamed it in 2007.

The crimes are firstly that Frank Houston was not reported to the Police in 1999, when all the leaders of Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches movement were made aware of serious pedophile crimes committed over decades by Frank Houston, the founder of Hillsong, and secondly that they colluded in sheltering the pedophile Frank Houston from the NSW Police for five years from 1999 to November 2004, when he died.

The following twelve men and one woman, Bobbie Houston, should all be charged with these crimes under NSW Law.

 

These leaders who should be charged

I don’t know Joel personally.

Joel started at Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney at the City Church in Danks Street Waterloo in the late 1990s just before I stopped going there in 2000. I was a lay pastor there in the 1980s in charge of ten home fellowships with 150-200 people in my care. I raised up and led the leaders of these ten home fellowships.

Later I also partnered with Laurie and Heather Murphy in founding Hillsong’s Glebe Outreach Church which is located in the Sydney inner city suburb of Glebe. Laurie and Heather are long-time friends of mine.

I was there from the beginning of Christian Life Centre (CLC) Darlinghurst in 1981.

in 1977 Frank Houston started the church in a Sydney Eastern suburbs home then at Sherbrooke Hall in Double Bay.

Then CLC moved to the corner of 200 Goulburn Street in 1981.

Later IICM the  Christian Life Centre (CLC) Darlinghurst Bible College was started located on level 10, 162-166 Goulburn Street Darlinghurst. Dave Sayers and I worked for two years doing building projects around these premises. I as a carpenter and Dave was my trades assistant.

Nobody involved at CLC Darlinghurst had any idea that Frank Houston was a lifelong secret pedophile except possibly in son Brian who may have been sexually abused as a little boy. I’d heard allegations of a child abuse scandal involving Frank Houston at Lower Hutt Assemblies of God in New Zealand but I had trouble believing they were true. Its long story which I’ve covered in many articles on this site.

Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney is the third name for Hillsong’s operations in Sydney Australia.

The first name was Christian Life Centre (CLC) Darlinghurst. The second name was Christian Life Centre (CLC) Waterloo and the third name was Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney.

The fourth name was Hillsong City Church and Hillsong Church Baulkham Hills .

The fifth name is the current name Hillsong City Campus and Hillsong Hills Campus.

Joel A’Bell suddenly appeared in the late 1990s when he was introduced to the City congregation by Pastor Jonathan Wilson, who was for a short period the co-head pastor of CLC Sydney along with Pastor Robert Fergusson. These two Englishmen by descent were put in charge of Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney by Brian Houston in conference with the senior elders at Christian Life Centre (CLC) Sydney

The paedophile Frank Houston had been sidelined and we, the members of CLC Sydney, were told he was retiring.

The long-time participants found it hard to believe Frank Houston was “retiring” because he’d always said he’d never retire and that wanted to die in the saddle.

One of Frank Houston’s favourite sayings was, “I’d rather re-fire than retire”.

From the now revealed pedophile Frank Houston’s secret actions he wasn’t thinking of retirement but was thinking “I’d rather abuse little boys than little girls for the rest of my life on earth until I die and go to be with the devil and his demons in Hades” As Frank Houston got nearer death he became more and more scared until he lost his mind with the stress near the end.

I was at Christian Life Centre Sydney from 1981 until 2000. Continuously from 1981 to 1992 and then from 1997-2000.

I haven’t seen or heard Joel A’Bell speak since 2000. Small mercies. It was like eating candy floss for dinner. Too much pink colour. Too much sugar. To much air between the floss Prosperity Gospel and lifestyle soft-sop particles instead of Biblical solids.

 

"Pastor" Joel A'Bell offering his sweet homilies about Pat and warning off "the haters". Now with egg all over his face. "I find these public comments about Pat to be unloving. He is well on track in his restoration". Oh dear Joel- so naive too. Pat Mesiti really pulled the wool over your eyes too.

“Pastor” Joel A’Bell offering his sweet homilies about Pat Mesiti and warning off “the haters” on his Facebook page. Now with egg all over his face. Joel A’Bell: “I find these public comments about Pat to be unloving. He is well on track in his restoration”. Oh dear Joel- so naive too. Pat Mesiti really pulled the wool over your eyes. Please could you post a comment on how you all at Hillsong are going to do another divine miracle and remove from every newspaper in the world how a Hillsong pastor bashed his wife on New Years Eve. That would be the ultimate task for the Hillsong spin department. I mean Hillsong media.

 

I recall the ebullient Pastor Jonathan Wilson announcing to Christian Life Centre Sydney (early name for Hillsong) in the late 1990s that young Joel A’Bell was the new young gun Youth Pastor. Seems like a long time ago.

Joel showed up at just the wrong time from a legal point of view.

Joel was able to participate in the crimes of pedophile protection.

 

Brian Houston of Hillsong, the pedophile Frank Houston’s son, said publicly to the Royal Commission, “dad told me he was out of control (with his pedophilia) in the 1960s and 1970s”.

It is unknown when Brian Houston knew his father was a pedophile. Brian says it was 1999 but I think it was probably in the 1960s when Brian turned 7.

 

Brian houston. Has been recommended by the Australian Royal Commission to be charged for not reporting and for protecting a pedophile.

The 1950s to 1970s were when the evil pedophile Frank Houston abused numerous little boys. His sexual preference was always very young and male. His favoured demography was in the 7 to 12 year range.

All the times he did these perverse acts, and there were possibly hundreds of victims, he was a Christian pastor.

All these perverse acts on children were done secretly.

When challenged about them Frank Houston denied doing them and viciously attacked his accusers.

 

The lifelong evil criminal pedophile Frank Houston who sexually abuse possible over four hundred little boys in his lifetime. Brian said he knows of sic victims now, He's lying because he knows there are far more. I've evidence of 13 so far and counting.

The lifelong evil criminal pedophile Frank Houston who sexually abused possibly over four hundred little boys in his lifetime.

 

I have established 13 young male victims.

11 boys aged 7 to 12 and one male teen aged 15 and one teen ANZ1 who suicided.

Brian Houston has moved his public position on the number of victims from the position he held from 1999 until the Royal Commission of one boy victim, even though he knew about at least 9 victims.

That is, Brian Houston told everyone including the Sydney media from 1999 until 2014 that there was “only one boy victim in New Zealand over 30 years ago”, even though the Royal Commission has shown he knew about Sydney boy victim AHA and at least 8 other victims all this time.

Brian knew about victim AHA, victim WNZ1 because he contacted Brian by email in the mid-2000s and Brian replied, the six Lower Hutt victims and Brian knew about Peter Fowler, a 15 year old Lower Hutt, New Zealand boy who went public in the 1980s with Pastor Philip Powell’s support.

“One boy victim in New Zealand over 30 years ago” is what the Hillsong website said in 2012 when I began investigating the subject of Frank Houston’s pedophilia. This is what Brian Houston told the Sydney Morning Herald and other media organisations many times between 1999 and 2014. There is plenty of evidence of this on-line and in the Royal commissions transcripts.

This statement of Brian Houston’s that there was “only one boy victim in New Zealand over 30 years ago” was a lie told untold times by Brian and Hillsong media.

How can a Christian pastor lie? Ask Brian Houston. He’s an expert. He does it every day. His whole life is a lie. That’s why he’s a criminal recommended by the Royal Commission for prosecution and an evil cult leader.

Brian’s current position which he revealed to Sydney channel nine’s ‘Inside Story’ program is six victims.

Why do I bother writing hundreds of articles about the Houstons and Hillsong if they don’t listen?

I’ve established 13 victims but the total is far higher.

The article on this site, “Pastor Frank Houston. Part one. Frank Houston’s pedophile activities”, originally published on 13 September 2012, and updated regularly since, is a full known history of Frank Houston’s pedophile activities.

If you google this title or “Frank Houston abuse” you’ll find it.

I have outlined the 13 known victims in this article.

This site has the most information by far about the Houstons, Hillsong and Frank Houston’s pedophilia than any other source or site. There are over 900 articles on this site and about 600 are on Christianity. Hundreds of them are about Brian Houston, Frank Houston, Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches (ACC) movement. The ACC is the name for the Australian Assemblies of God since 2007.

The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse was influenced by two main sources to examine the case of Frank Houston, Brian Houston, Hillsong and the Australian Christian Churches movement.

These two sources are victim AHA’s story of sexual abuse by Frank Houston and my accounts and the testimonies of multiple victims on this site. Three victims have been discovered through this blog site: SA1. WNZ1 and ANZ1 who suicided as a direct result of Frank Houston abusing him. RIP ANZ1. Justice will come for you soon.

 

Pastor Joel A’Bell

 

brian houston131e_bish_cigar-1

 

Joel A’Bell been Brian Houston’s lacky for over 25 years and done nothing and said nothing publicly or to the Police about all the pedophile crimes of Hillsong.

Joel A’Bell turned a blind eye and said nothing when Brian Houston, George Aghajanian, John McMartin, John Lewis and all the other Australian Christian Churches and Hillsong top leaders colluded to remove the evil lifelong pedophile Frank Houston from the spotlight.

They sent him “up the Hawkesbury” to Ian Wood at Hawkesbury Christian Centre, an Assemblies of God church, and hid Frank Houston there.

When Frank Houston became old and frail and had dementia they moved him to an old folks home on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Again away from the spotlight.

Joel A’Bell a Hillsong pastor who was part of the Hillsong leadership inner circle saw all these crafty moves and did nothing.

This is why he is culpable.

This is why Joel A’Bell must be charged with pedophile protection crimes, along with the other 12 men and one woman, Bobbie Houston, outlined above.

 

Note to NSW Police:

Joel A’Bell is the lead pastor at Hillsong Baulkham Hills.

When you go to arrest Brian Houston, he’s the tall man with the hair transplants and botox in the largest office with no paperwork or records in it. They were all shredded a long time ago.

Brian Houston- the tall man with a paunch, hair transplants and botox.

 

Down the corridor in one of the larger offices you’ll find George Aghajanian, the Hillsong Business manager. All the paperwork in there was changed in 2014 after the Royal Commission. All the old records have been shredded. Everything is now 100 per cent compliant.

George Aghajanian. Now compliant.

 

In another of the larger offices you’ll find Pastor Joel A’Bell head of Hillsong Australia.

NSW Police

NSW Police. Knock on the Hillsong door and you’ll catch three crooks at once: Brian Houston CEO, George Aghajanian Hillsong Business Manager and Joel A’Bell lead pastor of Hillsong Australia. You might even find your boss NSW Police Commissioner visiting his friend Brian Houston. But if Andrew Scipione is smart he might consider staying away from Hillsong for a while. Maybe forever. Sure Andrew Scipione might visit his close pal Brian in jail but that mightn’t look good for a NSW Police Commissioner.

Andrew Scipione NSW Police Commissioner.

Andrew Scipione NSW Police Commissioner. A close friend of Brian Houston of Hillsong Church. Has dinner with Brian and their wives sometimes at their homes and attends Hillsong Conferences at Homebush each July. May not be in the public interest or in Andrew Scipione’s personal interest to associate with the criminal pedophile protector Pastor Brian Houston of Hillsong Church anymore.

Evidence at the Royal Commission today. Pastor Brian Houston (in 2000 to a boy sex abuse victim of his father Frank Houston, who was abused in Australia from age 7 to 12): "You tempted my father so he abused you". Victim: "Did your father abuse you too?" Pastor Brian's response. Brian got angry and slammed the phone down on the victim. God help those who are under Pastor Brian's leadership. If God doesn't help them certainly Pastor Brian Houston of Hillsong and the Australian AOG/ ACC movement won't.

Pastor Brian Houston of Hillsong Church at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The Australian Royal Commission has recommended that Pastor Brian Houston be charged with pedophile crimes. This will happen soon. Maybe in 2016 or by early 2017.

Brian Houston of Hillsong. In it's Findings of October 2015 The Australian Royal Commission found Brian Houston guilty of pedophile protection offences. Brian has since increased his prayer life from one minute a day to 24 hours a day.

In it’s Findings of October 2015 The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Response to Child Sexual Abuse found Brian Houston guilty of pedophile protection offences. Brian has since increased his prayer life from one minute a day to 24 hours a day. But Brian still has no empathy, no compassion and hasn’t offered any help or compensation to the boy victims of his father the lifelong pedophile Frank Houston, the founder and senior elder and father figure of Hillsong Church.

Queen Bobbie

Bobbie Houston. Married into a very corrupt family.

Bobbie Houston. Botox, breast lifts, nip and tucks. Praise the Lord for cosmetic surgery. Its amazing!

 

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 23rd in a series of articles publishing the eye-witness testimonies of this Hillsong insider.

The illustrations have been inserted by me.

 

Hillsong insider speaks:

27 October 2015

 

“Dear Donald

Bobbie has boasted about cosmetic surgery, Botox and boob jobs from the pulpit.

 

Bobbie21

Bobbie:

Bobbie: “A modern liberated Christian woman should live life to the full and do whatever she pleases. Latest Designer clothes from Hillsong cash. Cosmetic surgery. Botox. Boob jobs. All on Hillsong tithes and cash. All good to go. We must look good for “The Ministry””.

 

The luxury holidays happen all the time.

The Houstons have boasted about being in Rome, in France and have described making their way into Rome.

 

Brian and Bobby on holiday at Positano.

Brian and Bobbie on holiday at a luxury five star boutique hotel in Positano, on the Amalfi Coast, South Italy. A favourite Northern Summer Holiday spot on their extended “Ministry Trip” of several months in June to August each year.

 

Bobbie and Brian scammed their way into seeing the Catholic Pope.

 

Darlene meets the Pope

Darlene Zscheke. Hillsong mega-star. Boasted on Facebook about singing for the Pope.

 

Bobbie and Brian speak about their holidays in luxury European hotels from the pulpit to the Hillsong Church.

Luxurious boutiques and plush hotels are the norm for Hillsong pastors.

Bobbie, Brian and Joel and Julie A’Bell love all the new technologies.

They use Hillsong money to upgrade to the latest models of  iPhones, iPads, and stuff like that. They feel the need to let you know that they’re keeping up to date.

 

Joel & Julia A'Bell

“Pastor” Joel & Julia A’Bell. Living the high life. Keeping up to date and splashing out all over the place with Hillsong tithes and cash. Amen! Hallelujah! The Prosperity jesus is so good. We’re sooo blessed. Yippee!

 

Now the new Senior Pastor in Australia Joel A’Bell has lavish lusts for the best fashioned surfing clothes.

I have never see Joel or his wife Julia in the same sets of clothes. They’re always in new shoes, pants, shirts, watches.

Joel was seen wearing a white watch, and before you know it all the pastors had one.

Joel has a lust for surfing clothes to keeping him looking young. He’s starting to look old and if you start looking old you’ll be on way out the door at Hillsong Church.

Joel loves expensive surfboards.

His wife Julia is just as bad as him with her clothing ecstasy on new things. Take your pick: bags, the best jewellery and perfumes.

Joel loves Gucci after-shave, you can name it. A Harley Davidson.

 

Joel A'Bell chasing to kept up with the younger generation like Joel Houston. Looking young, trendy and cool. Aussie surfing cultures, all the high-tech stuff and luxurious overseas holidays at Hillsong churches all over the planet.

Joel A’Bell. Chasing to kept up with the younger generation like Joel Houston (pictured). Looking young, trendy and cool. Aussie surfing cultures, all the high-tech stuff and luxurious overseas holidays at Hillsong churches all over the planet.

 

Joel is just a good sales rep and showman like Brian.

Joel was a surfing boy, but the power and greedy life, Christian fame, money, and lifestyle has changed them all.

The Big Head Syndrome.

If Brian goes to jail this is the man taking over. The apprentice, Joel A’Bell, will lead Hillsong Church for now. Then Brian’s son Joel Houston will.

These top pastors have holidays anywhere.

Wherever there is a Hillsong Church, they can go on a holiday there, milk the church’s money, and get love offerings and big note themselves.

“London”, “New York”, “Paris”, “Russia”. Have a look at where the Hillsong churches are.

And their thing is to have a Hillsong church in every big city and country”.
