Hillsong Summercamp, no different from secular rock-off summer festivals except “Jesus” and Christian themes replacing secular lyrics and themes. Mindless soul-power.

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 18th in a series of articles publishing the eye-witness testimonies of this Hillsong insider.

Hillsong Insider speaks:

7 November 2015

“Dear Donald

I was told last night about the covering up of lots of premarital sex in the Youth of Hillsong by the Hillsong City Church Youth Pastors Nathan and April Miller.

April Miller was the babysitting young lady for Julie and Joel A’Bell.

Now April and her husband Nathan run Hillsong Youth.

Cover ups include the covering up of how a young girl was forced to have sex at a Hillsong Youth Festival by two young men.

I’ve been told about how the reports of this incident are lost, and now after a time, it’s coming out from people who know the facts about it to people who were serving in the Hillsong Security teams.

Also at Hillsong Youth Festivals there has been under age drinking and smoking occurs and drugs were found at the Festivals”.

My comments:

When things get big like at Hillsong Church it’s very hard to control what goes on in the Youth department, especially when a Christian Church is void of the Blessed Holy Spirit, like Hillsong is.

Can loud rock-off music, enthusiastic lifestyle preaching, lasers, CGI and light-shows, and all the mod-cons of modern Hillsong life impart holiness into young people? It’s all a big festival and emporium of delusion and soul-power.

Cover-ups

Pastor Brian Houston and Hillsong have a policy and a practice of two types of leadership broom strokes.

Pastor Brian, the Hillsong Pastors, and the Hillsong helpers sweep dissenters out the Hillsong door. Aboriginal troublemaking kids, lesbian “lady lovers”, as Hillsong Pastor Steve McGhie likes to call them, and little old ladies who bring little dogs to their church in their hand-bags. All go “see ya later” out the Hillsong door.

The second broom-stroke is to sweep everything under the Hillsong carpet. Scandals. Rumours that the Hillsong founder Frank Houston molested heaps of little boys and young males. Underage sex in Hillsong Youth. The use of drugs in Hillsong Youth. The consumption of alcohol in Hillsong Youth. A young woman being forced by two young men to have sex at a Hillsong Youth Festival. Pastors like “Pastor” Pat Mesiti, former head of Hillsong Youth Alive, seeing prostitutes on a Hillsong credit card and betraying his first wife by chasing down, bedding and marrying a young Hillsong worship leader. The number of victims of the founder of Hillsong Frank Houston’s abuse.

The carpet of Hillsong is bulging and bursting like a Pandora’s Box with scandals and secrets.

Pandora’s Box

Pandora’s box is an artifact in Greek mythology, taken from the myth of Pandora’s creation in Hesiod’s Works and Days. The “box” was actually a large jar (πίθος pithos) given to Pandora (Πανδώρα, “all-gifted”, “all-giving”), which contained all the evils of the world.

Here is a radio audio video of Pat Mesiti speaking against Domestic Violence

 

 

There were only 15 views of this audio video when I watched it two days ago on 3 January 2016.

In view of Pat Mesiti being charged with getting physical with his wife on New Years Eve, five days ago, all Pat’s platitudes and homilies in this video seem a very hypocritical.

We all lose it at times.

But to do Domestic Violence against the fairer sex?

 

domestic violence 12domestic violence 1domestic violence 6

 

I was brought up in a culture and age when domestic violence against women was unthinkable. Back in New Zealand in the 1960s and 1970s we knew that the Maoris, Polynesians and Bikies, like the Mongrel Mob, sometimes belted their women around.

 

mongrel mob 4 mongrel mob 3 mongrel mob 2 mongrel mob 1mongrel mob 5

 

There would have been pakeha (the Maori term for New Zealand Anglo-Saxons) that were doing Domestic Violence, but it was all very hush hush like a lot of things, and not talked about.

I grew up in gentile Khandallah, on the quiet rolling hills above Wellington Harbour. The elite and most expensive suburb, where all the intelligentsia, top government officials, lawyers, bankers and other well-heeled lived. My father was a leading Presbyterian clergy and the minister at Khandallah Presbyterian Church. We were the poor humble minister’s family in a church house amongst the rich. There was an unspoken code never to hit a woman. Verbal abuse is also not part of my culture or family DNA. All such behaviour is absent from my culture, thinking and DNA.

There’s a problem with Domestic Violence. Some women can be quite feisty and provocative.

It’s good to remember men that if things get out of hand and the boys and gals in blue turn up, if there’s a crying woman, they’re more likely to believe her and sympathise with her than believe you.

In Pat Mesiti’s case there’s a Local Court case scheduled for 12 January after which we’ll all know more of the facts.

Needless to say it’s not looking too good for Pat Mesiti at the moment.

Revelation 3:14-22 New International Version (NIV)

To the Church in Laodicea

14 “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:

These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Both Pastor Brian Houston CEO of Hillsong and “Doctor” Phil Pringle of C3 International, both based in Sydney, claimed credit for “Pastor” Pat Mesiti’s “restoration”.

As I think about this word “restoration” in this context of “Pastor” Pat Mesiti, even prior to Pat Mesiti’s arrest on New Years Eve at his nice large home in Sydney’s West for bashing up his second wife Andrea “in a fit of rage”, near where Hillsong is located and Brian and Bobbie Houston live, I was very sceptical about “Pastor” Pat Mesiti being “restored” in any way.

Here is a transcript of “Doctor” Phil Pringle, a leader of over one hundred C3 affiliated churches globally, talking about “Pastor” Pat Mesiti’s “restoration” published by C3 Watch site in 2006.

THE RESTORATION

C3 Watch:

Phil Pringle ‘Restoring’ Pat Mesiti As A Church Pastor

Year: 2006

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

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

Was Pat Mesiti’s Christian character restored?

Hillsong and C3 seem to think so.

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

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

Below is a transcript of Pat Mesiti’s restoration.

Pat Mesiti’s restoration

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

 

Donald Elley of Bellingen:

“Doctor” Phil Pringle. (Not really a Doctor)

 

Phil Pringle:

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

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

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

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

 

Pat Mesiti. Restored. Contrite. Embarassed Older, wiser and greedier.

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti. “Restored”. Contrite? Embarrassed. Older, wiser and greedier.

 

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

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

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

 

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti. Renowned for serial adultery, including having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong credit card, while a very famous Hillsong Youth Alive evangelist. Also pursued a young Hillsong worship leader Andrea at the same time and bedded her, dumped his first wife and later married Andrea. Frank and Brian Houston taught him well.

 

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

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

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

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

 

“Doctor Phil”. Used to hand out pizzas.

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Naughty pat. Now repentant.

Naughty Pat. Now repentant.

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

My comments:

I was in that service at C3 Church in Oxford Falls, Sydney, at the time in 2006.

I was attending Oxford Falls in the late 1990s to 2002 and helping out Tim Lowe at C3 City Church in Darlinghurst in 2002.

I happened to be in that service. It was random and one of couple of times I visited there after 2002.

I must admit I was very sceptical about “Pastor” Pat Mesiti’s restoration. I don’t think it’s right that pastors who have crawled so far down the sewer as Pat the Rat did, should be allowed to become pastors in any form ever again.

What Pat Mesiti did seeing Sydney prostitutes using his Hillsong credit card after preaching to thousands of young people as a teacher and evangelist, betraying his first wife, and pursuing Andrea a young Hillsong worship leader, bedding her and later marrying her, all behind his wife’s back for years, was simply way too bad.

It’s one thing to sin out of the ministry as a Christian and this is bad, but it’s another thing to sin in the ministry. And Pat Mesiti’s sins were almost as bad as one can get as a Christian minister.

There is an onus and a Biblical prerogative and responsibility explicitly laid out in the Holy Scripture in multiple passages throughout the Holy Bible, not to act in the way Pat did as a Christian leader.

Any true Christian leader from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Apostles Paul and Peter, the greatest leaders in the early church, to the greats like General Booth, Charles Finney, John G Lake, Smith Wigglesworth, Kathryn Kulman and John Wesley would have stood down Pat Mesiti forever from Christian leadership of any form. No question asked. Period. No more discussion. See ya later Pat. You’re a foot soldier for life now, or leave the Christian army. Up to you.

That’s what should have happened to Pat Mesiti after he was caught using his Hillsong credit card to pay for prostitutes in 2002 and doing all the other bad things he did.

But in Pastor Brian Houston’s and “Doctor” Phil Pringle’s mind things are different. They both preside of Laodicean Churches- Churches that are lukewarm and compromised.

We all know what happens to Laodicean Churches, and this seems to happening to these compromised world-loving fleshly churches all over the globe: a time of shaking and judgment. The Candlestick of God’s Blessed Holy Spirit gets removed and they get shaken and judged. Only that which survives remains into eternity.

There won’t be much left once the Lord has shaken C3, Hillsong and the Prosperity churches hard. Only a few little old ladies on their knees who have been faithfully praying for everyone in the congregations through thick and thin.

All the rest will be cast into the garbage bin of history. The large Santa and his reindeer on Hillsong Baulkham Hills lawn. The love of appearance and worldliness. The Holy Spirit-less worship. The inane insane powerless messages of the Prosperity Preachers. The private jets. The holidays by leaders on Christians money in exotic places like Positano on the Amalfi Coast. Designer clothes. Designer watches. Exotic cars. Chauffeurs. The pride of life. Pride of big-noting themselves as a “pastor”. Lusts after money and possessions. It will all go.

Brian Houston wouldn’t take Pat Mesiti out of “the ministry” for good in 2002.

Anything goes with Brian. “We’re only human” is Brian’s favourite unholy mantra. After all his father Frank Houston was a rampant out-of-control secret homosexual and pedophile all his life, and Brian and his National AOG and Hillsong colleagues colluded in protecting him from the Police and jail for five long years from when he confessed in 1999 to his death in November 2004.

Pastor Brian Houston even put his father Frank in a “restoration” process to be a pastor again. Imagine that: an evil criminal lifelong pedophile who sexually abused hundreds of children and got away with it, becoming a pastor again and praying, preaching and prophesying for people.

Forget about the restoration. Frank Houston ignored the ban. He ignored “the restoration process”. Keith Ainge told the Royal Commission he was in charge of Frank Houston’s “restoration”. He tried to get Frank Houston to tell him all he’d done and repent. Frank Houston refused to tell him anything and said, “I’m retired anyway. There’s no point in talking about it”.

But Frank Houston wasn’t retired. He went on praying, preaching and prophesying for people, as if nothing had happened.

At Hawkesbury Assemblies of God, where Frank Houston was placed for this “restoration” process, Pastor Ian Wood told the unknowing congregation that Frank Houston was spending some time there and to “treat him like AOG Royalty”.

Pastor Brian Houston, Pastor John McMartin the President of the NSW AOG, and Pastor Ian Wood put Frank Houston, a self-confessed lifelong pedophile, in Hawkesbury AOG amongst all the families and children, without telling them Frank Houston was  a life-long self-confessed pedophile. Instead they told them the opposite.

This is the way Hillsong, Pastor Brian Houston and all the Australian AOG/ACC leadership behave to this day. The Australian AOG is now called the Australian Christian Churches.

You’d be pressed to find a more corrupt, more nepotistic, more self-serving and more dishonest group of Pentecostal Christian pastors anywhere on the planet than these men. The corruption, nepotism, pilfering of the hard-earned cash of Christians, and dishonesty is systemic throughout the Hillsong and Australian AOG/ ACC leadership.

Hillsong and the ACC are the ultimate Laodicean Church organisations.

The restoration of Pat Mesiti

The “restoration” of Pat Mesiti is no different to the very corrupt practices of Frank Houston’s so-called “restoration”.

Neither “restoration” should have taken place in the first place.

If you would like to read a more comprehensive account of Pat Mesiti’s moral failures and “restoration” please read the following article on this site. If you google the articles title or “Pat Mesiti” you’ll readily find it.

This site is a chronological spiritual journey of mine, with a wide-range of Christian and other topics canvassed. For some time my focus has primarily been on the restoration of the Christian Church, with a focus on the Pentecostal Churches, which are my spiritual home.

Pat Mesiti and his Domestic Violence against his second wife Andrea

Pat Mesiti was arrested on New Years Eve for beating up his second wife Andrea at their home in the Hills District of North-West Sydney, which is near Hillsong Baulkham Hills, and near Brian and Bobbie Houston’s mansion in Glenhaven.

A Sydney Morning Herald article of 3 January 2016, which I published in a blog article three days ago entitled, “Pastor Pat Mesiti of Hillsong. “Restored” Hillsong Pastor faces Domestic Violence Charges”, has the following description of the Domestic Violence perpetrated by Pat Mesiti on New Years Eve.

Pat Mesiti's second wife Andrea. On holiday in Positano, Amalfi Coast, South Italy- with husband Pat Mesiti, Brian and Bobbie Houston and others from the Hillsong inner circle in September 2014.

Sydney Morning Herald extract of 3 January 2016.

“A former Hillsong Church minister who became a motivational speaker faces domestic violence charges after he allegedly assaulted his wife in a “fit of rage” on New Year’s Eve.

Police from The Hills Local Area Command in Sydney’s north-west arrested Pat Mesiti at his home about 11pm on Thursday.

“The accused was heavily intoxicated and in a fit of rage over a family issue,” Sergeant Michael Plass said.

Mr Mesiti was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and common assault.

Police have sought an apprehended violence order on behalf of his second wife, Andrea. Mr Mesiti has not yet been required to enter a plea to the assault charge and it is not known if he will oppose the AVO application”.

My comments:

It is too early to comment specifically on this incident. The NSW Police would not have arrested Pat unless he was off his face on alcohol and had bashed up his wife.

“The accused was heavily intoxicated and in a fit of rage over a family issue,” Sergeant Michael Plass said.

“Heavily intoxicated”. “Fit of rage”

Pat Mesiti. An errant scum who should not have been restored to ministry

Pat Mesiti. Perpetrator of Domestic Violence. Bashed his second wife Andrea and got arrested by NSW Police. Appearing in Parramatta Court, Sydney, on 12 January 2016.

“Heavily intoxicated” and “Fit of rage” don’t sound like a “Restored Pastor’s behaviour”.

But as Brian Houston says, “We’re only human”. Brian seems to have been saying that a lot lately.

When Frank Houston, Brian’s dad, confessed to being a lifelong pedophile, Brian called it “serious moral failure”.

When Pat Mesiti was caught by a Hillsong bookkeeper visiting Sydney brothels on his Hillsong credit card, Brian called it “serious moral failure”.

In the above transcript “Doctor” Phil Pringle called Pat Mesiti’s sins, “terrible terrible tumble….a moral collapse…a sad moment”

Who is going to “restore” Very Naughty Pat after the latest Domestic Violence incident?

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti was “restored” by Brian Houston and “Doctor” Phil Pringle, the miracle worker.

Pat is very close pal of Brian’s and Brian claims to have helped restore Pat.

Brian handed naughty Pat over to “Doctor” Phil Pringle for him to “restore Pat”.

But I think more Pat the Rat was a hot potato; too hot for Hillsong since he’d been committing adulteries with prostitutes on his Hillsong credit card behind his first wife’s back, after preaching to thousands of young people as a Hillsong Youth Alive evangelist.

And at the same time Naughty Pat was pursuing and bedding Andrea, his second wife, who he later married.

This is how he got caught- when a dutiful bookkeeper in the Hillsong Church Accounts Department wondered what “A Touch of Class” was on Pat Mesiti’s Hillsong credit card bill and went to her boss’s office, George Aghajanian, the Hillsong Business Manager, to ask.

It is unclear whether Brian, Bobbie and George objected to the use of the Hillsong credit card while Naughty Pat was sharing his jesus’ love with prostitutes, or whether it was the huge amount of the cumulative bills at places like “A Touch of Class” over many years which was the problem or whether Brian, Bobbie and George were annoyed that Naughty Pat had damaged Hillsong’s reputation. Or all three reasons.

The question arises, if Naughty Pat is now Noble Pat, a restored pastor, is Pastor Pat a Hillsong pastor, a C3 pastor or both?

Also, who is going to handle Very Naughty Pat’s “restoration” after the current Police AVO saga? “Doctor” Phil, Brian Houston or the pastor at Silverwater jail?

Brian Houston’s testimony on Mesiti bends the truth to pervert the grace of God

Wednesday 18 March 2015

SPEAKING DISHONESTLY THE SUNDAY AFTER THE ROYAL COMMISSION

Houston-Mesiti-Connection

Below you will be hearing part of a sermon that was given by Brian Houston after the Royal Commission in 2014. Towards the end of his sermon that talked about tackling the issue of shame, Brian Houston dropped this deceitful testimony.

What is shameful on Houston’s behalf is the fact he is teaching on shame but is himself ashamed to even name the person he is referring to. Essentially – by withholding the persons name, Brian Houston is lying by omission – and being a hypocrite. The person he is talking about in this video appears to be Pat Mesiti, the former Pastor of Hillsong’s Youth Alive.

 

 

In this video Brian Houston says:

“Many years ago, over the years I’ve had many people in my office over failings and things that now frame their lives.

Never forget many years ago a friend of mine, sitting in my office having confessed immorality, I’m talking about sexual immorality; he was just so filled with shame. I will never forget it he literally could not sit up straight, physically could not sit up straight, he was just dumpling over. It was that feeling of remorse and shame, thinking about the consequences of his sin, the devastation he had caused people around him and it cost him everything.

Literally, it didn’t only cost him his ministry, it cost him his marriage, it cost him his home, he lost his home, it cost him everything. The only thing he had was loyal friends and perhaps that’s the greatest thing we can have anyway, is loyal friends.

And there were people who stuck with him, people who I know here in our congregation who stuck with him. I was talking with him yesterday on the phone, actually text messages, same thing these days, and ahhh he was telling me that after years of rebuilding his life, just constantly rebuilding his life that the house he lost that his sin, his shame had cost him, he is on the edge of perhaps buying back.

Now think about that instead of your shame and dishonour you will enjoy a double share of honour you will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, everlasting joy will be yours.

I’m thinking what restoration is that! Literally restoring what the devil had taken, what his own sin and shame had taken and his family loved that house his adult girls they’ve got great memories of that home and ahhh his little daughter loves that home and so, I don’t think they’ve done it yet, it’s not over the line but it looks like, you’re talking about restoration the home that his sin and his shame cost him is coming back into his life and other things that were robbed from him are being added back into his life.

After many, many years something like twelve years and I think what an amazing story. And that is the grace of God and we are a grace church and we will always believe that your accuses, one by one they need to leave, whether they are external or internal, so it’s you and Jesus alone because untimely the only victory you have over shame and guilt and condemnation is in Jesus Christ and if you get rid of all the noise, all the other voices, all the finger pointing and just spend time with you and Jesus, that’s where my friend your victory will be won.

Instead of shame and dishonour you will enjoy a double share of honour, you will ohhh I love it [claps hands] possess a double portion of prosperity in your land and everlasting joy will be yours. How great, how wonderful.”

Pat Mesiti’s “restoration” is an “amazing story”? Really Brian? If you are not sure who Pat Mesiti is, read these articles:

What Happened To Pat Mesiti of Hillsong?
Guess Which “get-rich-quick” scheming Pastor This Journalist Is Warning Us Against?

Money-Making Mesiti ‘Ministering’ At Hillsong London In 2010…

It Takes Houston & Pringle To Restore One Who “Reveals The Best Tips On Public Speaking”

So why is Houston using the “restoration” testimony of Pat Mesiti and calling it an “amazing story”? Mesiti’s fall was a tragedy. However, when you read the articles above, Mesiti’s restoration was a spectacular failure. He now has the appalling reputation in Australia and New Zealand as a spruiker and con artist. Is this why Brian Houston was ashamed to leave out Mesiti’s name in the testimony?

Last year the Financial Review wrote about Pat Mesiti.

Property spruikers signal overheating market

Pat Mesiti , whose mission in life is to create 10,000 millionaires before he dies, wants you.

The Sydney-based organiser of property seminars boasts he can show Australians the secrets of how he and his friends “built fortunes in real estate, starting from scratch with no special skills and not a lot of spare cash”.

All you need do is attend his “property millionaires” tour – in Melbourne this weekend – where you can learn how to develop, renovate and churn property.

“Many of you want to flip properties,” Mr Mesiti declares in a YouTube clip on his website.

“We want to teach you how you do that safely, securely, and make money.”

It’s the kind of pitch that worries analysts watching for signs the property market is overheating.

There are plenty of reasons to worry. Reserve Bank of Australia figures showed this week that investors now account for about 45 per cent of home loan approvals in NSW – a record and well above the previous peak in 2002-03.

RP-Data on Friday said Sydney house prices rose 1.5 per cent last month and are almost 15 per cent higher than a year earlier, a sign price growth may be accelerating.

Experts say an apparent explosion in property investment seminars is a warning parts of the property market are overheating.

“A pick-up in the property spruiking business is a signal things may be getting a little too exuberant,” said Paul Bloxham , HSBC Australia’s chief economist.

The former Reserve Bank official co-wrote a 2010 central bank study into the causes of the 2003 Sydney housing boom and bust.

Housing seminars are a common sight around hotel conference rooms, where they pitch to retirees or younger investors. Direct telephone marketing is also on the up.

Mr Bloxham’s original report noted that one of the alarm bells about Sydney’s overheating market a decade ago was a crackdown on property investment seminars and increased scrutiny by the tax office of rental deductions.

“Some of the tell-tale signs are there,” he said on Friday.

HIGHER THAN EXUBERANT TIMES OF 2003

“The investor share of loans is at a record high, and higher than the very exuberant times of 2003, which ended with house prices falling and parts of Western Sydney doing it tough.”

He says the city appears to be following a familiar pattern, fuelled by record-low official and commercial lending rates that start with price rises based on fundamental drivers, such as a shortage of new homes and rising incomes.

“People then get overly excited about it and start buying assets because the price of those assets is rising.

“The solution is not to leave interest rates too low for too long. It’s one of the reasons the Reserve Bank won’t be cutting rates further and we have in mind they’ll be lifting early next year.”

Chris Curtis , a Sydney property buyers’ agent, said there was no doubt pushers were once again proliferating, but are more sophisticated.

They still use well-worn arguments to drum up business, such as negative comparisons to shares and a shortage of housing supply, while updating the pitch to emphasise affordability of property investments for self-managed super funds and the “globalisation” of Sydney as a haven for global capital.

“They’re quite appalling, and what’s happening now is that everyone is doing this property thing – it’s not just the Gold Coast white-shoe brigade: it’s now happening with credible brands,” Mr Curtis said.

The concern was echoed by last month’s David Murray financial system inquiry interim report, which said borrowing by self-managed funds would create problems if left unchecked.

Regulators, who say co-ordinating enforcement is tricky, fear much of the demand for off-the-plan apartments is being driven by double-digit commissions.

Cash payments of $40,000 are routinely made to advisers who recommend apartments, typically to self-managed super fund investors.

In turn, investors are promised double-digit returns, guaranteed tenancies, regular rental income and perks, such as ‘‘free’’ furniture, in a bid to invest in off-the-plan developments.

Tim Mackay, a financial adviser at Quantum Wealth, said high-pressure sales seminars promising easy wealth had become common.

“Aspirational investors should view it as a canary in the coalmine and tread cautiously.If in doubt seek independent advice,” he said.

Mr Mesiti, one of the spruikers, said that while there were pockets of over-heating other parts were not.

“Property, like life, goes through different cycles at different times,” he told AFR Weekend.

“Everyone is entitled to their view. It think it is a great time to leverage and take control of your own destiny, of your wealth.”

My comments:

 

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

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

 

Pat Mesiti’s first fall from grace happened in early 2002.

As Brian mentions Pat got wiped out financially at the time. Brian mentions it has taken Pat until late 2014 to get back on his feet to the point where he may be in a position to purchase a nice house in Sydney’s North-West, where Pat likes to live. Pat was still renting in late 2014 from what Brian Houston shared about Pat Mesiti’s “restoration”.

Brian also makes some other interesting observations:

“Never forget many years ago a friend of mine, sitting in my office having confessed immorality, I’m talking about sexual immorality; he was just so filled with shame. I will never forget it he literally could not sit up straight, physically could not sit up straight, he was just dumpling over. It was that feeling of remorse and shame, thinking about the consequences of his sin, the devastation he had caused people around him and it cost him everything”.

So Pat Mesiti is going through all this again after bashing up his wife this past New Year’s Eve, although this time the pain may be greater.

Subsequent to bashing his second wife Andrea and cheating on her with prostitutes and loose women, Andrea has proceeded to divorce Pat, and wipe him out financially (again).

The failure of Brian as a friend and pastor towards Pat.

“Literally, it didn’t only cost him his ministry, it cost him his marriage, it cost him his home, he lost his home, it cost him everything. The only thing he had was loyal friends and perhaps that’s the greatest thing we can have anyway, is loyal friends.

And there were people who stuck with him, people who I know here in our congregation who stuck with him. I was talking with him yesterday on the phone, actually text messages, same thing these days, and ahhh he was telling me that after years of rebuilding his life, just constantly rebuilding his life that the house he lost that his sin, his shame had cost him, he is on the edge of perhaps buying back”.

Brian is portraying himself as a “loyal friend” of Pat.

This is probably true, although Brian’s friendship is about to be tested.

Brian’s failure as a friend

Brian says:

“And there were people who stuck with him, people who I know here in our congregation who stuck with him. I was talking with him yesterday on the phone, actually text messages, same thing these days, and ahhh he was telling me that after years of rebuilding his life, just constantly rebuilding his life that the house he lost that his sin, his shame had cost him, he is on the edge of perhaps buying back”.

Please observe Brian’s statement:

“I was talking with him yesterday on the phone, actually text messages, same thing these days…”

Brian, by his own constant admission, and its obviously a self-evident truth given the size of his own family and the size of Hillsong International, is extremely busy. As is “Doctor” Phil Pringle, the other half in Pat’s “restoration” team.

Text messages just aren’t enough.

Pat Mesiti needs and needed a lot more than text messages. Right now Pat Mesiti will be feeling very alone and maybe not too good about himself.

 

How Brian and Dr Phil failed Pat

In 2002 when Pat got caught out after presumably years of being a secret sex addict, as he describes himself, while married to his first wife, his world buckled and dissolved, as Brian mentioned.

“Never forget many years ago a friend of mine, sitting in my office having confessed immorality, I’m talking about sexual immorality; he was just so filled with shame. I will never forget it he literally could not sit up straight, physically could not sit up straight, he was just dumpling over. It was that feeling of remorse and shame, thinking about the consequences of his sin, the devastation he had caused people around him and it cost him everything”.

It must have been very hard for Pat:

“…he was just so filled with shame. I will never forget it he literally could not sit up straight, physically could not sit up straight, he was just dumpling over. It was that feeling of remorse and shame, thinking about the consequences of his sin, the devastation he had caused people around him and it cost him everything”.

What Pat needed at this time was, as Brian mentioned, was really good and loyal friends.

Pat must have been very lonely and upset with himself and his life, as he will no doubt also be now as the latest episode of bashing up his wife on New Years Eve.

Pat was a self-confessed secret sex addict in 2002, who’d been preaching to thousands of Australian young people as a Hillsong Youth Alive evangelist and he was a Director of the Australian Christian Churches (ACC). This organisation was called the Australian Assemblies of God until Brian Houston renamed it in 2007.

As a secret sex addict Pat was preaching to thousands of young people, including my older children, and then visiting Darlinghurst prostitutes. No doubt he was visiting prostitutes all over Australia and the world, where ever he was, often using his Hillsong credit card.

At the time Pat was married to his first wife. He also pursued a young worship leader Andrea, who he bedded while married. Later after his fall from grace Pat fortuitously married the young Andrea.

Andrea is a victim of Pat Mesiti

In many ways Andrea Mesiti, Pat’s young former second wife, is a victim of Pat Mesiti in that he never seems to have let the Lord help him with his past hurts and dysfunctions that cause him to sin again and again.

In fact, his sins and dysfunctions seem to be getting worse.

 

The neglects of Hillsong and C3 Church in respect to being “Born Again”, Sanctified” and “Baptised in the Holy Spirit

In the article I published recently on this site on 17 January 2016, “The Azusa Street Revival 1906-8. Los Angeles. A pure outpouring of God the Holy Spirit”, I mentioned how the Azusa Street Revival was the real deal and how much we all need the Holy Spirit.

The preachers of Azusa Street, including William Seymour, taught about three significant processes in the Christian new birth and spiritual empowerment.

Firstly, being “Born Again” of the Holy Spirit as mentioned by the Lord Jesus Christ in John 4.

Secondly, “Sanctification”. That is, getting all the fine print of our lives right regarding sin and repentance.

Thirdly, after being “Born Again” and “Sanctified” we are eligible for the “Baptism in the Holy Spirit”.

Hillsong and the C3 Church don’t get people “Born Again” properly, they don’t teach and require genuine and deep Biblical “Sanctification” and they don’t teach the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.

In this respect Brian Houston and “Doctor” Phil Pringle have failed Pat Mesiti, Andrea Mesiti and all the other people who attend their churches.

What hope did Pat Mesiti have and what hope does he have in the future?

If your mentors, leaders and restorers don’t have the Holy Spirit, aren’t spiritually mature, don’t have the gift discernment of spirits and all the other gifts of the Holy Spirit, aren’t Baptised in the Holy Spirit, don’t teach and practice Holiness and Sanctification, then what hope do you have?

“Pastor” Joel A’Bell, head of Hillsong Australia, offering his sweet homilies about Pat Mesiti on Facebook and warning off “the haters”. Now the wise sage “Pastor” Joel A’Bell, along with the other “Restorers” of Naughty Pasquale, “Pastor” Brian Houston and “Doctor” Phil Pringle, has 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- you’re so naive too. Pat Mesiti really pulled the wool over your eyes. What’s Joel going to write on his Facebook page now: “I knew Pasquale before, during and after his first moral failure. I knew Pasquale before, during and after his second moral failure. Those who don’t know him should keep their comments in closer circles or to themselves. I find these public comments about Pat to be very unloving. Although we all want to be Pat’s best friend, unfortunately Pastor Brian says that Pat is well on his way to the Hillsong door”.

Naughty Pasquale

Naughty Pasquale. May be shown the Hillsong door so far as preaching at Hillsong Churches worldwide and being a “restored” pastor there for the second time. Still Hillsong have gays in their worship team at Hillsong New York City. Maybe they can accommodate a resident hooker visiting and wife-bashing pastor too?

To the Church in Laodicea

14 “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:

These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Pastor Brian Houston of Hillsong Church. Claims to have restored Pat Mesiti.

 

Both Pastor Brian Houston CEO of Hillsong and “Doctor” Phil Pringle of C3 International, both based in Sydney, claimed credit for “Pastor” Pat Mesiti’s “restoration”.

As I think about this word “restoration” in this context of “Pastor” Pat Mesiti, even prior to Pat Mesiti’s arrest on New Years Eve at his nice large home in Sydney’s West for bashing up his second wife Andrea “in a fit of rage”, near where Hillsong is located and Brian and Bobbie Houston live, I was very sceptical about “Pastor” Pat Mesiti being “restored” in any way.

Here is a transcript of “Doctor” Phil Pringle, a leader of over one hundred C3 affiliated churches globally, talking about “Pastor” Pat Mesiti’s “restoration” published by C3 Watch site in 2006.

 

THE RESTORATION

C3 Watch:

Phil Pringle ‘Restoring’ Pat Mesiti As A Church Pastor

Year: 2006

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

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

Was Pat Mesiti’s Christian character restored?

Hillsong and C3 seem to think so.

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

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

Below is a transcript of Pat Mesiti’s restoration.

 

Pat Mesiti’s restoration

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

 

Donald Elley of Bellingen: "Welcome to this, my blog site, Pastor Phil Pringle". Dr Phil Pringle: "Thank you Donald Elley of Bellingen. Nice to be here". Donald Elley of Bellingen: " Who do you think is greater, you or Napoleon Bonaparte?" Dr Phil Pringle: "Me of course". Donald Elley of Bellingen: "What is it like being the head of over 100 hundred churches?" Dr Phil Pringle: "Like being God". Donald Elley of Bellingen: "Do you believe Dr Yongghi Co was innocent?' Dr Phil Pringle: "I think people, including the whole South Korean legal system have judged Dr Paul Young Cho or Dr David Yonghi Cho, depending on which name he chooses on the day, harshly". Donald Elley of Bellingen: "What did you think when you heard Frank houston was a pedophile. I understand you called him your spiritual father". Dr Phil Pringle: "We must see things through God's precious loving eyes and not judge harshly. We are not God".

“Doctor” Phil Pringle. (Not really a Doctor)

 

Phil Pringle:

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

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

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

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

 

Pat Mesiti. Restored. Contrite. Embarassed Older, wiser and greedier.

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti. “Restored”. Contrite? Embarrassed. Older, wiser and greedier.

 

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

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

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

 

"Pastor" Pat Mesiti. Reknowned for serial adultery, including having sex with prostates on a Hillsong credit card, while a very famous Hillsong Youth Alive evangelist. Frank and Brian Houston taught him well.

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti. Renowned for serial adultery, including having sex with prostitutes on a Hillsong credit card, while a very famous Hillsong Youth Alive evangelist. Also pursued a young Hillsong worship leader Andrea at the same time and bedded her, dumped his first wife and later married Andrea. Frank and Brian Houston taught him well.

 

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

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

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

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

 

"Doctor Phil". Used to hand out pizzas.

“Doctor Phil”. Used to hand out pizzas.

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

"Doctor" Phil: "Pat, listen up. Turn up at church and listen to me, I'm amazing".

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Naughty pat. Now repentant.

Naughty Pat. Now repentant.

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

My comments:

I was in that service at C3 Church in Oxford Falls, Sydney, at the time in 2006.

I was attending Oxford Falls in the late 1990s to 2002 and helping out Tim Lowe at C3 City Church in Darlinghurst in 2002.

I happened to be in that service. It was random and one of couple of times I visited there after 2002.

I must admit I was very sceptical about “Pastor” Pat Mesiti’s restoration. I don’t think it’s right that pastors who have crawled so far down the sewer as Pat the Rat did, should be allowed to become pastors in any form ever again.

What Pat Mesiti did seeing Sydney prostitutes using his Hillsong credit card after preaching to thousands of young people as a teacher and evangelist, betraying his first wife, and pursuing Andrea a young Hillsong worship leader, bedding her and later marrying her, all behind his wife’s back for years, was simply way too bad.

It’s one thing to sin out of the ministry as a Christian and this is bad, but it’s another thing to sin in the ministry. And Pat Mesiti’s sins were almost as bad as one can get as a Christian minister.

There is an onus and a Biblical prerogative and responsibility explicitly laid out in the Holy Scripture in multiple passages throughout the Holy Bible, not to act in the way Pat did as a Christian leader.

Any true Christian leader from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Apostles Paul and Peter, the greatest leaders in the early church, to the greats like General Booth, Charles Finney, John G Lake, Smith Wigglesworth, Kathryn Kulman and John Wesley would have stood down Pat Mesiti forever from Christian leadership of any form. No question asked. Period. No more discussion. See ya later Pat. You’re a foot soldier for life now, or leave the Christian army. Up to you.

That’s what should have happened to Pat Mesiti after he was caught using his Hillsong credit card to pay for prostitutes in 2002 and doing all the other bad things he did.

But in Pastor Brian Houston’s and “Doctor” Phil Pringle’s mind things are different. They both preside of Laodicean Churches- Churches that are lukewarm and compromised.

We all know what happens to Laodicean Churches, and this seems to happening to these compromised world-loving fleshly churches all over the globe: a time of shaking and judgment. The Candlestick of God’s Blessed Holy Spirit gets removed and they get shaken and judged. Only that which survives remains into eternity.

There won’t be much left once the Lord has shaken C3, Hillsong and the Prosperity churches hard. Only a few little old ladies on their knees who have been faithfully praying for everyone in the congregations through thick and thin.

All the rest will be cast into the garbage bin of history. The large Santa and his reindeer on Hillsong Baulkham Hills lawn. The love of appearance and worldliness. The Holy Spirit-less worship. The inane insane powerless messages of the Prosperity Preachers. The private jets. The holidays by leaders on Christians money in exotic places like Positano on the Amalfi Coast. Designer clothes. Designer watches. Exotic cars. Chauffeurs. The pride of life. Pride of big-noting themselves as a “pastor”. Lusts after money and possessions. It will all go.

Brian Houston wouldn’t take Pat Mesiti out of “the ministry” for good in 2002.

Anything goes with Brian. “We’re only human” is Brian’s favourite unholy mantra. After all his father Frank Houston was a rampant out-of-control secret homosexual and pedophile all his life, and Brian and his National AOG and Hillsong colleagues colluded in protecting him from the Police and jail for five long years from when he confessed in 1999 to his death in November 2004.

Pastor Brian Houston even put his father Frank in a “restoration” process to be a pastor again. Imagine that: an evil criminal lifelong pedophile who sexually abused hundreds of children and got away with it, becoming a pastor again and praying, preaching and prophesying for people.

Forget about the restoration. Frank Houston ignored the ban. He ignored “the restoration process”. Keith Ainge told the Royal Commission he was in charge of Frank Houston’s “restoration”. He tried to get Frank Houston to tell him all he’d done and repent. Frank Houston refused to tell him anything and said, “I’m retired anyway. There’s no point in talking about it”.

But Frank Houston wasn’t retired. He went on praying, preaching and prophesying for people, as if nothing had happened.

At Hawkesbury Assemblies of God, where Frank Houston was placed for this “restoration” process, Pastor Ian Wood told the unknowing congregation that Frank Houston was spending some time there and to “treat him like AOG Royalty”.

Pastor Brian Houston, Pastor John McMartin the President of the NSW AOG, and Pastor Ian Wood put Frank Houston, a self-confessed lifelong pedophile, in Hawkesbury AOG amongst all the families and children, without telling them Frank Houston was  a life-long self-confessed pedophile. Instead they told them the opposite.

This is the way Hillsong, Pastor Brian Houston and all the Australian AOG/ACC leadership behave to this day. The Australian AOG is now called the Australian Christian Churches.

You’d be pressed to find a more corrupt, more nepotistic, more self-serving and more dishonest group of Pentecostal Christian pastors anywhere on the planet than these men. The corruption, nepotism, pilfering of the hard-earned cash of Christians, and dishonesty is systemic throughout the Hillsong and Australian AOG/ ACC leadership.

Hillsong and the ACC are the ultimate Laodicean Church organisations.

 

The restoration of Pat Mesiti

The “restoration” of Pat Mesiti is no different to the very corrupt practices of Frank Houston’s so-called “restoration”.

Neither “restoration” should have taken place in the first place.

If you would like to read a more comprehensive account of Pat Mesiti’s moral failures and “restoration” please read the following article on this site. If you google the articles title or “Pat Mesiti” you’ll readily find it.

This site is a chronological spiritual journey of mine, with a wide-range of Christian and other topics canvassed. For some time my focus has primarily been on the restoration of the Christian Church, with a focus on the Pentecostal Churches, which are my spiritual home.

Pat Mesiti and his Domestic Violence against his second wife Andrea

Pat Mesiti was arrested on New Years Eve for beating up his second wife Andrea at their home in the Hills District of North-West Sydney, which is near Hillsong Baulkham Hills, and near Brian and Bobbie Houston’s mansion in Glenhaven.

A Sydney Morning Herald article of 3 January 2016, which I published in a blog article three days ago entitled, “Pastor Pat Mesiti of Hillsong. “Restored” Hillsong Pastor faces Domestic Violence Charges”, has the following description of the Domestic Violence perpetrated by Pat Mesiti on New Years Eve.

 

Pat Mesiti's second wife Andrea. On holiday in Positano, Amalfi Coast, South Italy- with husband Pat Mesiti, Brian and Bobbie Houston and others from the Hillsong inner circle in September 2014.

Sydney Morning Herald extract of 3 January 2016.

“A former Hillsong Church minister who became a motivational speaker faces domestic violence charges after he allegedly assaulted his wife in a “fit of rage” on New Year’s Eve.

Police from The Hills Local Area Command in Sydney’s north-west arrested Pat Mesiti at his home about 11pm on Thursday.

“The accused was heavily intoxicated and in a fit of rage over a family issue,” Sergeant Michael Plass said.

Mr Mesiti was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and common assault.

Police have sought an apprehended violence order on behalf of his second wife, Andrea. Mr Mesiti has not yet been required to enter a plea to the assault charge and it is not known if he will oppose the AVO application”.

 

My comments:

It is too early to comment specifically on this incident. The NSW Police would not have arrested Pat unless he was off his face on alcohol and had bashed up his wife.

“The accused was heavily intoxicated and in a fit of rage over a family issue,” Sergeant Michael Plass said.

“Heavily intoxicated”. “Fit of rage”

“Heavily intoxicated” and “Fit of rage” don’t sound like a “Restored Pastor’s behaviour”.

But as Brian Houston says, “We’re only human”. Brian seems to have been saying that a lot lately.

AOG/ ACC/ C3 excuses for extremely serious sins by their leading pastors: “Serious moral failure” and “A moral collapse”.

When Frank Houston, Brian’s dad, confessed to being a lifelong pedophile, Brian called it “serious moral failure”.

When Pat Mesiti was caught by a Hillsong bookkeeper visiting Sydney brothels on his Hillsong credit card, Brian called it “serious moral failure”.

In the above transcript “Doctor” Phil Pringle called Pat Mesiti’s sins, “terrible terrible tumble….a moral collapse…a sad moment”

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

Who is going to “restore” Very Naughty Pat after the latest Domestic Violence incident?

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti was “restored” by Brian Houston and “Doctor” Phil Pringle, the miracle worker.

Pat is very close pal of Brian’s and Brian claims to have helped restore Pat.

“Pastor” Pat Mesiti and Pastor Brian Houston CEO of Hillsong. Close pals. On holiday in Positano on the Amalfi Coast, South Italy on September 2014

 

Brian handed naughty Pat over to “Doctor” Phil Pringle for him to “restore Pat”.

But I think more Pat the Rat was a hot potato; too hot for Hillsong since he’d been committing adulteries with prostitutes on his Hillsong credit card behind his first wife’s back, after preaching to thousands of young people as a Hillsong Youth Alive evangelist.

And at the same time Naughty Pat was pursuing and bedding Andrea, his second wife, who he later married.

This is how he got caught- when a dutiful bookkeeper in the Hillsong Church Accounts Department wondered what “A Touch of Class” was on Pat Mesiti’s Hillsong credit card bill and went to her boss’s office, George Aghajanian, the Hillsong Business Manager, to ask.

It is unclear whether Brian, Bobbie and George objected to the use of the Hillsong credit card while Naughty Pat was sharing his jesus’ love with prostitutes, or whether it was the huge amount of the cumulative bills at places like “A Touch of Class” over many years which was the problem or whether Brian, Bobbie and George were annoyed that Naughty Pat had damaged Hillsong’s reputation. Or all three reasons.

The question arises, if Naughty Pat is now Noble Pat, a restored pastor, is Pastor Pat a Hillsong pastor, a C3 pastor or both?

Also, who is going to handle Very Naughty Pat’s “restoration” after the current Police AVO saga? “Doctor” Phil, Brian Houston or the pastor at Silverwater jail?

MULTIPLE ADULTERIES WHILE A FAMOUS HILLSONG YOUTH EVANGELIST AND HILLSONG PASTOR

Sydney Morning Herald

Disgraced evangelist in hiding after being stripped of licence

Kelly Burke, Religious Affairs Writer

SMH, Wednesday, 27 March 2002, Page 8

NEWS AND FEATURES

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My comments:

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

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

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

THE RESTORATION

C3 Watch:

Phil Pringle ‘Restoring’ Pat Mesiti As A Church Pastor

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

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

Was Pat Mesiti’s Christian character restored?

Hillsong and C3 seem to think so.

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

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

Below is a transcript of Pat Mesiti’s restoration.

Pat Mesiti’s restoration

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

 

Doctor Phil Pringle

“Doctor Phil” Pringle. No one does “restoration” like “Doctor” Phil of C3 church. “Doctor Phil” gives the best spin-job in religious history. Might have been better to drown Pat the Rat.

 

Phil Pringle:

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

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

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

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

 

Restored. Older, wiser and greedier.

Padre Pasquale “Pat” Mesiti. Restored. Contrite. Embarassed  Older, wiser and greedier. Now also domestically violent and getting on the turps and the housewives sweet remedy.

 

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

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

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

 

Tumbler

Little Holy Houston Hillsong Tumbler

 

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

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

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

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

 

Doctor Phil

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Donald Elley of Bellingen:

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Naughty pat. Now repentant.

Very Naughty Little Pat. Now repentant. (for a while…hee hee)

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

The writer, Donald Elley of Bellingen.

 

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

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

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

I was always been blessed by C3 at Oxford Falls however it probably wouldn’t suit me now because culturally I’m a hippy bourgeois farmer and the hype, noise and spin would make me go troppo.

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Hillsong insider reports:

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

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

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

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

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

 

My comments:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hillsong insider speaks:

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

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

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

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

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

 

My comments:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What’s wrong with having sex with prostitutes?

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

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

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

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

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

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

The general details would be enough.

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

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

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

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

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

Everything.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Was Pat Mesiti restored?

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

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

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

Is Pat Mesiti still seeing prostitutes on church credit cards?

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

 

with second wife. i wonder how Pat's first wife is getting along these days?

Pat Mesiti with second wife. I wonder how Pat’s first wife is getting along these days?

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

I’ve invited His Holy Eminence Brian…err Saint Pope Pete of Hillsong Basilica, Baulkham Hills, Sydney, also known as Saint Son of Holy Houston Hillsong Homosexual Pedophile Francis and Pope Corpus Copulator II of Baulkham Hills, Sydney patron saint of the Houston Prosperity Gospel, or simply Pope Copulator II of Australia, to share his thoughts about the Holy Padre Pasquale “Pat” Mesiti of Hillsong and C3 Holy Priesthood and the “restoration” of Hillsong and ACC errant pastors, like he tried to do to his dad Saint William Francis “Frank” Houston the Rock Spider Snake Pedophile and founder of Hillsong.

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

Pope Corpus Copulator II: “Thank you Donald Elley of Bellingen, so pleased to see you again”.  Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Why your Holiness are you laughing and so merry today”. Pope Corpus Copulator II: “Its just the Holy Titles you ascribe to me- who told you my Secret Holy Names. Ha Haha Haha”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “What do you think was the cause of Holy Padre Patrick Mesiti’s adultery?” Pope Corpus Copulator II: “Now, Donald Elley of Bellingen, I didn’t say the word adultery, I said serious moral failure”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Why did you tell all the Australian Christian Church churches not to share this with their congregations?” Pope Corpus Copulator II: “It’s all about the Sanctity and Sacredness of the Holy Houston Hillsong ACC priesthood”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Do you mean that ACC pastors are to be protected and shielded if they do something morally wrong?” Pope Corpus Copulator II: “We at the Holy Houston Basilica of Hillsong Baulkham Hills Sydney Australia have a long-standing tradition of brotherhood and godly fellowship. Some things are better kept in the Holy Houston Hillsong UnHoliness Inner Sanctum of the Baulkham Hills Hillsong Basilica. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Are you aware of how your Holy Spiritual Love-Child and Holy Prodigy Padre Pat Mesiti’s second wife Andrea is faring after the affairs, drunkeness and Unholy Domestic Violence”. Saint Copulator II: “We have a large and caring pastoral care team. She is free to contact them any time. The number is 1800…or I might send young Pasquale my close friend and spiritual love child a Holy Houston text of Holy love and care”

I’ll now interview Holy Black Jesus and Holy Black Madonna Mary Momma of the Little Virgin Nun’s Roman Catholic Church in Positano, Italy on the Amalfi Coast where the Houston’s, the Mesitis, the Zchechs and all the Holy Houston Hillsong Inner Circle like to holiday each summer, about Padre Pat Mesisti, his bashed-up wife Andrea Mesiti, Holy Hillsong Pope Brian Houston, Bobbie Houston of Hillsong his Holy Concubine and “Doctor” Phil Pringle of c3 Church, the man who tried to restore a Pasquale Monkey to the Ministry.

Donald elley of bellingen:

Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Holy Black Jesus, who do you think is greater, the Holy Pontiff Saint Francis of Rome or the Holy Houston Hillsong Pope Saint Corpus Copulator II, formerly plain old Brian Houston of Lower Hutt, New Zealand”. Holy Black Jesus: “Well, they were both poor peasants before they became Holy Popes, one from South America and one from grey fibro Lower Hutt, New Zealand, who’ve made it big on the Holy Religious World Stage. What do you think Holy Black Madonna Mary Momma?” Holy Black Madonna Mary Momma: “Holy Houston Hillsong Saint Copulator II by a whisker. I’m a big fan of his Holy Spouse Bobbie Houston”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Holy Black Jesus, how do you feel about your Holy Son Padre Pat Mesiti being restored to the Holy Hillsong Christian ministry after being caught with his pants down with unHoly Darlinghurst Hookers?” Holy Black Jesus: “Well, if the Holy C3 Church Parsonage Doctor Phil Pringle diagnosed the Holy Padre Pat Mesiti as being in good spiritual health then he must be. After all Doctor Phil Pringle is a Doctor”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Holy Black Jesus, who do you think is greater, Doctor Phil Pringle or Holy Houston Hillsong Saint Corpus Copulator II, formerly plain old Brian, the boy who used to play marbles at Lower Hutt Primary School and jump in dirty New Zealand puddles with his Naughty New Zealand class-mates?” Holy Black Jesus: “Well, Doctor Phil Pringle after all is a Doctor but on the other hand, Brian has Bobbie. Come to think of it, the jury’s out on whether Brian’s holy spouse Bobbie Houston is an asset or a liability. I think Doctor Phil Pringle by a whisker because he’s a Doctor”. Donald Elley of Bellingen: “Holy Black Madonna Mary Momma, have you read Bobbie Houston’s book, “Kingdom women love sex?”” Holy Black Madonna Mary Momma: “I’ve never heard of that book. Here in Positano Italy we only have junk tourists leave behind on the floor after they’ve taken photographs of me and my son Holy Black Jesus in this Holy Roman Church of the Little Virgin Nuns. Is it pornography?”

Brian Houston’s testimony on Mesiti bends the truth to pervert the grace of God

Wednesday 18 March 2015

SPEAKING DISHONESTLY THE SUNDAY AFTER THE ROYAL COMMISSION

Houston-Mesiti-Connection

Below you will be hearing part of a sermon that was given by Brian Houston after the Royal Commission in 2014. Towards the end of his sermon that talked about tackling the issue of shame, Brian Houston dropped this deceitful testimony.

What is shameful on Houston’s behalf is the fact he is teaching on shame but is himself ashamed to even name the person he is referring to. Essentially – by withholding the persons name, Brian Houston is lying by omission – and being a hypocrite. The person he is talking about in this video appears to be Pat Mesiti, the former Pastor of Hillsong’s Youth Alive.

 

 

In this video Brian Houston says:

“Many years ago, over the years I’ve had many people in my office over failings and things that now frame their lives.

Never forget many years ago a friend of mine, sitting in my office having confessed immorality, I’m talking about sexual immorality; he was just so filled with shame. I will never forget it he literally could not sit up straight, physically could not sit up straight, he was just dumpling over. It was that feeling of remorse and shame, thinking about the consequences of his sin, the devastation he had caused people around him and it cost him everything.

Literally, it didn’t only cost him his ministry, it cost him his marriage, it cost him his home, he lost his home, it cost him everything. The only thing he had was loyal friends and perhaps that’s the greatest thing we can have anyway, is loyal friends.

And there were people who stuck with him, people who I know here in our congregation who stuck with him. I was talking with him yesterday on the phone, actually text messages, same thing these days, and ahhh he was telling me that after years of rebuilding his life, just constantly rebuilding his life that the house he lost that his sin, his shame had cost him, he is on the edge of perhaps buying back.

Now think about that instead of your shame and dishonour you will enjoy a double share of honour you will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, everlasting joy will be yours.

I’m thinking what restoration is that! Literally restoring what the devil had taken, what his own sin and shame had taken and his family loved that house his adult girls they’ve got great memories of that home and ahhh his little daughter loves that home and so, I don’t think they’ve done it yet, it’s not over the line but it looks like, you’re talking about restoration the home that his sin and his shame cost him is coming back into his life and other things that were robbed from him are being added back into his life.

After many, many years something like twelve years and I think what an amazing story. And that is the grace of God and we are a grace church and we will always believe that your accuses, one by one they need to leave, whether they are external or internal, so it’s you and Jesus alone because untimely the only victory you have over shame and guilt and condemnation is in Jesus Christ and if you get rid of all the noise, all the other voices, all the finger pointing and just spend time with you and Jesus, that’s where my friend your victory will be won.

Instead of shame and dishonour you will enjoy a double share of honour, you will ohhh I love it [claps hands] possess a double portion of prosperity in your land and everlasting joy will be yours. How great, how wonderful.”

Pat Mesiti’s “restoration” is an “amazing story”? Really Brian? If you are not sure who Pat Mesiti is, read these articles:

What Happened To Pat Mesiti of Hillsong?
Guess Which “get-rich-quick” scheming Pastor This Journalist Is Warning Us Against?

Money-Making Mesiti ‘Ministering’ At Hillsong London In 2010…

It Takes Houston & Pringle To Restore One Who “Reveals The Best Tips On Public Speaking”

So why is Houston using the “restoration” testimony of Pat Mesiti and calling it an “amazing story”? Mesiti’s fall was a tragedy. However, when you read the articles above, Mesiti’s restoration was a spectacular failure. He now has the appalling reputation in Australia and New Zealand as a spruiker and con artist. Is this why Brian Houston was ashamed to leave out Mesiti’s name in the testimony?

Last year the Financial Review wrote about Pat Mesiti.

Property spruikers signal overheating market

Pat Mesiti , whose mission in life is to create 10,000 millionaires before he dies, wants you.

The Sydney-based organiser of property seminars boasts he can show Australians the secrets of how he and his friends “built fortunes in real estate, starting from scratch with no special skills and not a lot of spare cash”.

All you need do is attend his “property millionaires” tour – in Melbourne this weekend – where you can learn how to develop, renovate and churn property.

“Many of you want to flip properties,” Mr Mesiti declares in a YouTube clip on his website.

“We want to teach you how you do that safely, securely, and make money.”

It’s the kind of pitch that worries analysts watching for signs the property market is overheating.

There are plenty of reasons to worry. Reserve Bank of Australia figures showed this week that investors now account for about 45 per cent of home loan approvals in NSW – a record and well above the previous peak in 2002-03.

RP-Data on Friday said Sydney house prices rose 1.5 per cent last month and are almost 15 per cent higher than a year earlier, a sign price growth may be accelerating.

Experts say an apparent explosion in property investment seminars is a warning parts of the property market are overheating.

“A pick-up in the property spruiking business is a signal things may be getting a little too exuberant,” said Paul Bloxham , HSBC Australia’s chief economist.

The former Reserve Bank official co-wrote a 2010 central bank study into the causes of the 2003 Sydney housing boom and bust.

Housing seminars are a common sight around hotel conference rooms, where they pitch to retirees or younger investors. Direct telephone marketing is also on the up.

Mr Bloxham’s original report noted that one of the alarm bells about Sydney’s overheating market a decade ago was a crackdown on property investment seminars and increased scrutiny by the tax office of rental deductions.

“Some of the tell-tale signs are there,” he said on Friday.

HIGHER THAN EXUBERANT TIMES OF 2003

“The investor share of loans is at a record high, and higher than the very exuberant times of 2003, which ended with house prices falling and parts of Western Sydney doing it tough.”

He says the city appears to be following a familiar pattern, fuelled by record-low official and commercial lending rates that start with price rises based on fundamental drivers, such as a shortage of new homes and rising incomes.

“People then get overly excited about it and start buying assets because the price of those assets is rising.

“The solution is not to leave interest rates too low for too long. It’s one of the reasons the Reserve Bank won’t be cutting rates further and we have in mind they’ll be lifting early next year.”

Chris Curtis , a Sydney property buyers’ agent, said there was no doubt pushers were once again proliferating, but are more sophisticated.

They still use well-worn arguments to drum up business, such as negative comparisons to shares and a shortage of housing supply, while updating the pitch to emphasise affordability of property investments for self-managed super funds and the “globalisation” of Sydney as a haven for global capital.

“They’re quite appalling, and what’s happening now is that everyone is doing this property thing – it’s not just the Gold Coast white-shoe brigade: it’s now happening with credible brands,” Mr Curtis said.

The concern was echoed by last month’s David Murray financial system inquiry interim report, which said borrowing by self-managed funds would create problems if left unchecked.

Regulators, who say co-ordinating enforcement is tricky, fear much of the demand for off-the-plan apartments is being driven by double-digit commissions.

Cash payments of $40,000 are routinely made to advisers who recommend apartments, typically to self-managed super fund investors.

In turn, investors are promised double-digit returns, guaranteed tenancies, regular rental income and perks, such as ‘‘free’’ furniture, in a bid to invest in off-the-plan developments.

Tim Mackay, a financial adviser at Quantum Wealth, said high-pressure sales seminars promising easy wealth had become common.

“Aspirational investors should view it as a canary in the coalmine and tread cautiously.If in doubt seek independent advice,” he said.

Mr Mesiti, one of the spruikers, said that while there were pockets of over-heating other parts were not.

“Property, like life, goes through different cycles at different times,” he told AFR Weekend.

“Everyone is entitled to their view. It think it is a great time to leverage and take control of your own destiny, of your wealth.”

My comments:

 

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

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

 

Pat Mesiti’s first fall from grace happened in early 2002.

As Brian mentions Pat got wiped out financially at the time. Brian mentions it has taken Pat until late 2014 to get back on his feet to the point where he may be in a position to purchase a nice house in Sydney’s North-West, where Pat likes to live. Pat was still renting in late 2014 from what Brian Houston shared about Pat Mesiti’s “restoration”.

Brian also makes some other interesting observations:

“Never forget many years ago a friend of mine, sitting in my office having confessed immorality, I’m talking about sexual immorality; he was just so filled with shame. I will never forget it he literally could not sit up straight, physically could not sit up straight, he was just dumpling over. It was that feeling of remorse and shame, thinking about the consequences of his sin, the devastation he had caused people around him and it cost him everything”.

So Pat Mesiti is going through all this again after bashing up his wife this past New Year’s Eve, although this time the pain may be greater.

 

The failure of Brian as a friend and pastor towards Pat.

“Literally, it didn’t only cost him his ministry, it cost him his marriage, it cost him his home, he lost his home, it cost him everything. The only thing he had was loyal friends and perhaps that’s the greatest thing we can have anyway, is loyal friends.

And there were people who stuck with him, people who I know here in our congregation who stuck with him. I was talking with him yesterday on the phone, actually text messages, same thing these days, and ahhh he was telling me that after years of rebuilding his life, just constantly rebuilding his life that the house he lost that his sin, his shame had cost him, he is on the edge of perhaps buying back”.

Brian is portraying himself as a “loyal friend” of Pat.

This is probably true, although Brian’s friendship is about to be tested.

Brian’s failure as a friend

Brian says:

“And there were people who stuck with him, people who I know here in our congregation who stuck with him. I was talking with him yesterday on the phone, actually text messages, same thing these days, and ahhh he was telling me that after years of rebuilding his life, just constantly rebuilding his life that the house he lost that his sin, his shame had cost him, he is on the edge of perhaps buying back”.

Please observe Brian’s statement:

“I was talking with him yesterday on the phone, actually text messages, same thing these days…”

Brian, by his own constant admission, and its obviously a self-evident truth given the size of his own family and the size of Hillsong International, is extremely busy. As is “Doctor” Phil Pringle, the other half in Pat’s “restoration” team.

Text messages just aren’t enough.

Pat Mesiti needs and needed a lot more than text messages. Right now Pat Mesiti will be feeling very alone and maybe not too good about himself.

 

How Brian and Dr Phil failed Pat

In 2002 when Pat got caught out after presumably years of being a secret sex addict, as he describes himself, while married to his first wife, his world buckled and dissolved, as Brian mentioned.

“Never forget many years ago a friend of mine, sitting in my office having confessed immorality, I’m talking about sexual immorality; he was just so filled with shame. I will never forget it he literally could not sit up straight, physically could not sit up straight, he was just dumpling over. It was that feeling of remorse and shame, thinking about the consequences of his sin, the devastation he had caused people around him and it cost him everything”.

It must have been very hard for Pat:

“…he was just so filled with shame. I will never forget it he literally could not sit up straight, physically could not sit up straight, he was just dumpling over. It was that feeling of remorse and shame, thinking about the consequences of his sin, the devastation he had caused people around him and it cost him everything”.

What Pat needed at this time was, as Brian mentioned, was really good and loyal friends.

Pat must have been very lonely and upset with himself and his life, as he will no doubt also be now as the latest episode of bashing up his wife on New Years Eve.

Pat was a self-confessed secret sex addict in 2002, who’d been preaching to thousands of Australian young people as a Hillsong Youth Alive evangelist and he was a Director of the Australian Christian Churches (ACC). This organisation was called the Australian Assemblies of God until Brian Houston renamed it in 2007.

As a secret sex addict Pat was preaching to thousands of young people, including my older children, and then visiting Darlinghurst prostitutes. No doubt he was visiting prostitutes all over Australia and the world, where ever he was, often using his Hillsong credit card.

At the time Pat was married to his first wife. He also pursued a young worship leader Andrea, who he bedded while married. Later after his fall from grace Pat fortuitously married the young Andrea.

Andrea is a victim of Pat Mesiti

In many ways Andrea Mesiti, Pat’s young second wife, is a victim of Pat Mesiti in that he never seems to have let the Lord help him with his past hurts and dysfunctions that cause him to sin again and again.

In fact, his sins and dysfunctions seem to be getting worse.

 

The neglects of Hillsong and C3 Church in respect to being “Born Again”, Sanctified” and “Baptised in the Holy Spirit

In the article I published recently on this site on 17 January 2016, “The Azusa Street Revival 1906-8. Los Angeles. A pure outpouring of God the Holy Spirit”, I mentioned how the Azusa Street Revival was the real deal and how much we all need the Holy Spirit.

The preachers of Azusa Street, including William Seymour, taught about three significant processes in the Christian new birth and spiritual empowerment.

Firstly, being “Born Again” of the Holy Spirit as mentioned by the Lord Jesus Christ in John 4.

Secondly, “Sanctification”. That is, getting all the fine print of our lives right regarding sin and repentance.

Thirdly, after being “Born Again” and “Sanctified” we are eligible for the “Baptism in the Holy Spirit”.

Hillsong and the C3 Church don’t get people “Born Again” properly, they don’t teach and require genuine and deep Biblical “Sanctification” and they don’t teach the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.

In this respect Brian Houston and “Doctor” Phil Pringle have failed Pat Mesiti, Andrea Mesiti and all the other people who attend their churches.

What hope did Pat Mesiti have and what hope does he have in the future?

of If your mentors, leaders and restorers don’t have the Holy Spirit, aren’t spiritually mature, don’t have the gift discernment of spirits and all the other gifts of the Holy Spirit, aren’t Baptised in the Holy Spirit, don’t teach and practice Holiness and Sanctification, then what hope do you have?

Now the wise sage “Pastor” Joel A’Bell, along with the other “Restorers” of Naughty Pasquale, “Pastor” Brian Houston and “Doctor” Phil Pringle, has 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- you’re so naive too. Pat Mesiti really pulled the wool over your eyes. What’s Joel going to write on his Facebook page now: “I knew Pasquale before, during and after his first moral failure. I knew Pasquale before, during and after his second moral failure. Those who don’t know him should keep their comments in closer circles or to themselves. I find these public comments about Pat to be very unloving. Although we all want to be Pat’s best friend, unfortunately Pastor Brian says that Pat is well on his way to the Hillsong door”.

Naughty Pasquale

Naughty Pasquale. May be shown the Hillsong door so far as preaching at Hillsong Churches worldwide and being a “restored” pastor there for the second time. Still Hillsong have gays in their worship team at Hillsong New York City. Maybe they can accommodate a resident hooker visiting and wife-bashing pastor too?

 

Andrea Mesiti. Deserves better.

Just who’s getting rich quick?

BY ROB STOCK

29 June 2009

Books have always been used by salesmen to enhance their credibility, though a new series arriving in New Zealand takes that to a new pitch.

The nine books in the Millionaire Makers series ($14.99 each) tempt buyers with promises of “$100,000 in 100 days”, achieving “financial abundance for life”, or “Cracking the million dollar sales code”.

But these are really advertisements disguised as books, trying to drum up bums on seats for seminars in Auckland’s Aotea Centre in August, November and February at which the nine authors – some of the biggest names of the Australian wealth seminar scene – will attempt to sell mentoring schemes, high-risk options trading systems, boxed software programs and even franchise-style online marketing businesses to Kiwis who want to barely work at all and yet be fantastically rich.

Each book contains a “free” invitation to a seminar “worth $1994” (a very specific sum derived by comparison to the pricing of the seminars of US motivational speaker Tony Robbins).

In effect, punters who pick the books up from the natty black display stands in bookstores around the country are being asked to buy the advertisement for the seminar.

It’s brilliant marketing really, as befits the man behind the series, former evangelical pastor Pat Mesiti, now a preacher in the secular church of financial abundance.

Mesiti is a fascinating and charismatic man to meet, not least because of his colourful background as a preacher with the evangelical and highly commercial Hillsong church in Australia.

There’s no doubting the energy of the diminutive Mesiti (who is in great nick for a man whose brows now sport receding grey locks) nor his acute awareness that any journalist he meets is a single internet search away from learning about his past.

In fact, Yahoo’s new helpful habit of trying to anticipate your searching requirements suggested I add the word “scandal” to my search command even before I finished typing Mesiti’s name.

Consequently, it is he who brings up his public disgrace in 2001 when he was stood down as a preacher at Hillsong for visiting prostitutes, a scandal that led him to reinvent himself on the wealth-creation speaking circuit.

It’s still a sensitive point. As we talk the phone goes. A current affairs show producer calls as we talk, asking Mesiti to front for an interview. “Are they dirt-diggers?” he asks nervously, clearly weary of constantly revisiting his sexual sins.

Hillsong church and Mesiti still have much in common, including the message that God and Jesus want their believers to be rich, and, unusually, that Jesus was himself wealthy.

Mesiti sums it up for me. He doesn’t believe Jesus was broke. If Jesus was poor why did he have a treasurer? How could he have afforded to keep such a retinue of disciples? How else could he have afforded to take so much time off work?

Mesiti adheres to the school of thought among predominantly US preachers with a penchant for the good life that Jesus was wealthy, and what’s more, the mainstream churches know it, but are keeping the truth from people in order to amass riches for themselves (Mesiti points out that mainstream churches are among some of the biggest landowners in the world).

Mesiti’s stance is not far from Hillsong head man Brian Houston’s claim that true Christians are money magnets. “If you believe in Jesus, he will reward you here as well [as in heaven],” he once told a Sydney Morning Herald reporter.

Mesiti claims that despite having left Hillsong, he has a similar mission to the wealth- dispensing God. “I tell the people, their prosperity is my passion,” he says.

The nine authors of the Millionaire Makers series share that mission, Mesiti claims. That’s handy, because it is the only way to address the key paradox of the motivational speaker/ professional mentor: If they are so wealthy and successful, what are they doing on the speaking circuit flogging their books and mentoring systems?

“Those that can, do. Those that can’t, teach,” is the old saw that comes to mind, particularly for a journalist who has met many financially successful people.

The standard response is that they have a mission to teach and to free humanity from the shackles of society/poor schooling/bad parenting, which all combine in a malign conspiracy to keep us from the secrets of wealth.

Of course, the way to break free from the shackles and achieve wealth quickly and painlessly, according to the Mesiti school of thought, is to buy the book/the mentoring scheme/the software. Such mentoring brings “wisdom without the wait”, he tells me.

For the record, this cynical journalist for one is deeply sceptical about get-rich-quick schemes. I have no doubt they work – the problem is, I think they work for those selling them, not those buying them.

There are no audit trails, no published success rates to prove it one way or the other.

That leaves those handing their cash over taking a leap of faith.

I wouldn’t dispute that speakers like Mesiti can be a powerful force to motivate people to get out there and improve their lot, but it’s hard not to see that as secondary to the sales pitch. Pick your gurus carefully.

My comments:

It takes a cautious Kiwi journalist to smell a rat and Pat Mesiti’s scent has gotten right up Rob Stock’s nose.

This article was written in June 2009. Six and a half years later what would Rob Stock or any other journalist or commentator write now?

There’s no credibility left now with Pat Mesiti on any level. It is even possible that the errant Pat has been cheating on his second wife Andrea.

 

Pat and Andrea with their daughter. Sadly children are the unmentioned and often forgotten victims of Domestic Violence, adulteries and domestic breakdowns.

Von Paulus wrote the following comment on an article about Pat Mesiti on this site on 2 December last year, a month before Pat Mesiti’s Domestic Violence against his second wife Andrea on New Years Eve 2015:

“I know for a fact that he has being going to hotels in Brisbane and the Gold Coast with local women that he has on call for when he is working in SE Queensland”.

This is a current allegation from a month ago.

It may be that Andrea has found out about these infidelities, confronted Pat and he hit the roof.

If anyone knows Andrea Mesiti they should bring this comment to her attention so she can seek clarification from Pat.

Why would a Christian pastor cheat on a beautiful devoted wife like Andrea who has given him a lovely daughter?

Pat Mesiti’s Mexican Millionaire Mindset: “Pastor” Pat Mesiti was arrested by the NSW Police for wife-bashing on New Years Eve 2015. The NSW Police Spokesman at Hills Area Command in North-West Sydney, Sergeant Michael Plass, told the Sydney Morning Herald: “After consuming a large amount of alcohol, in a fit of rage Pat Mesiti physically assaulted his wife Andrea”. Pat Mesiti’s Initial Hearing for Domestic Apprehended Violence charges occasioning actual physical assault was heard at Parramatta Court on 12 January 2016. Pat Mesiti didn’t attend. His expensive barrister appeared on his behalf. The Parramatta Court imposed an Interim Domestic Apprehended Violence Order (DAVO) on Pat Mesiti with conditions. Pat Mesiti is not to approach his wife Andrea within 12 hours of consuming drugs or alcohol. Pat Mesiti is due in Parramatta Court in February 2016 for a DAVO Hearing. Pat Mesiti will have to attend this second Hearing. If found guilty Pat Mesiti will have a two year DAVO imposed on him, which is a criminal offence. It will affect his ability to travel to certain countries, like America for example. There is also an assault charge involving actual physical violence to answer in Parramatta Court too.

A motivational speaker and former Hillsong preacher, Pasquale “Pat” Mesiti, will fight allegations he attacked his wife on New Year’s Eve.

The 56-year-old, who describes himself on his website as an “income acceleration coach” whose goal is to help create 10,000 millionaires, did not appear in Parramatta local court on Tuesday when the case came before a magistrate for the first time.

Mesiti has been charged with common assault and assault occasioning actual bodily harm, both of which were allegedly committed against his wife, Andrea, in the north-western Sydney suburb of Glenhaven between 10pm on 30 December and 10.35pm on 31 December.

He has entered a plea of not guilty on both counts.

Mesiti is due back in court next month, but in the meantime must comply with an interim protection order that prevents him from approaching Andrea Mesiti within 12 hours of consuming alcohol or illicit drugs.

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