Hillsong: Have Communion with Cookie & Juice or Whatever Is Convenient

Hillsong Church invited people to take communion at home with a cookie and juice or whatever is convenient.

23 For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

27 Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. 28 Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. 30 That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died. 31 But if we judged ourselves truly, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged by the Lord, we are disciplined so that we may not be condemned along with the world.

33 So then, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another— 34 if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home—so that when you come together it will not be for judgment. About the other things I will give directions when I come.
— 1 Corinthians 11:23-34

Hillsong's Joel Houston Says "Evolution is Undeniable"

Screen Shot 2018-06-29 at 11.57.43 AM.png

Hillsong songwriter, Lead Pastor and member of the Houston royal dynasty, Joel Houston has decreed and declared that "evolution is undeniable." Houston then began backtracking and claiming that he was misunderstood by judgmental people who aren't being nice to him.

Here's an excellent from our friends at Answers in Genesis:

Hillsong Lead Pastor Promotes F-Bomb T-Shirt

Hillsong Church lead pastor (and model/clothing company owner) Esther Houston has a video on her YouTube Channel with a model wearing a t-shirt with the f-bomb, as seen in the video below. Esther Houston appears in the video right after the "F-bomb" t-shirt model.

The Hillsong Church website clearly describes her as a lead pastor:

Does this need further explanation? Has your lead pastor ever been associated with models wearing expletives? Doesn't anyone at Hillsong have enough decency to realize this is setting a bad example? In truth, it seems that some Hillsong Pastors have a very worldly version of decency. See: Disgusting Hillsong Santa Has a "Package" for You

“Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments; but rather by means of good works, as befits women making claims of godliness.”

— 1 Timothy 2: 9-10

The Museum of Idolatry previously covered another concerning issue with Hillsong lead pastor Esther Houston regarding their direct URL linking to her sexually sensual modeling page directly from the Hillsong website. On top of that, Esther Houston has been known to post inappropriate photos on Instagram (and then delete them when confronted):

 
Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness
— James 3: 1
 

There is simply no excuse for any of this. The leadership needs to ask God to grant them repentance, and anyone who is a part of the Hillsong Church "ministry" should seriously consider finding a church that values the things of God more than the things of this world. The inappropriate behavior of "Pastor" Esther Houston is just the tip of the iceberg: Hillsong has a long history of false teaching, manipulation and abuse. If you think that's an exaggeration, please read the extensive information in the links below. 

“Do not love the world or the things of the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world-the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life-is not from the Father but is from the world.”— 1 John 1: 15-16
“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what it the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. ”— Romans 12: 1-2
“For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God.”— 1 Thessalonians 4: 3-5

 

One last thought:

       We at Pirate Christian Media are not interested in simply getting web hits to increase numbers (and thus post controversial things like this to get more views). We are very concerned that gigantic, corrupt media empires like Hillsong, need to be exposed, and the Evangelical Industrial Complex will not do it. Most of the so-called "trusted leaders" within Evangelicalism want to look the other way and pretend everything is okay.  

Posting these kinds of lewd stories is not fun for us, and we certainly don't intend to cause more people to stumble by posting questionable photographs and/or videos.  But if nobody exposes these things, they will only get worse. We feel it's necessary to put this stuff in people's faces (so to speak) in order to shake people up.

Hillsong Website Links to Lusty Esther Houston Website

We just posted an article about the lewd photograph that was posted on "Pastor" Esther Houston's Instagram. She quickly removed that photo, but we've discovered that this is just a regular part of "Pastor" Houston's life, it seems. She did this same thing about a year ago; see Now You See Her Now You Don't. She's accustomed to posting sexy pictures of herself, and her "church" is directly supporting this activity.

Hillsong Church has a biography page for Esther Houston, and it directly links to her MISSWHOO webpage containing photos that could lead many into temptation. You've been warned.

 In case you think this woman isn't really considered a pastor, below is a screenshot of the official Hillsong website. Notice how Hillsong describes Esther as someone who is "redefining modern day misconceptions. " Hmmm...

Below is a sampling from the Miss Whoo website and Houston's clothing store website: Houston Graeff.

Here are a few screenshots from a video on Esther Houston's YouTube channel where a model is wearing a t-shirt with the "F" word clearly written across the front:

Jesus instructed us to pray not to be lead into temptation. Scripture continually calls us to run away from sexual lust. Why is Hillsong Church linking to a site that can very easily provoke those sinful passions? Why is Hillsong Church sending the clear message to young women that it's okay to use your body as a sexually alluring object? How bad do things have to get before the Hillsong empire will be exposed as not really a church at all, but as the multi-million dollar corporate entity that it actually is??

Is it any surprise that Esther Houston is a "co-pastor" with Carl Lentz?

Disgusting Hillsong Santa Has a "Package" For You

Hillsong Pastor Diego Simila (also known as the Naked Cowboy) has shown up again in a disgusting "costume" at a Christmas party for Hillsong's Pastrix Esther Houston. Houston thought it would be a good idea to post this on Instagram (it was removed within a few hours of this article being posted). This photo looks like it came from a drug dealer party or something, but it didn't: this is the culture of some of the leaders at Hillsong:

Here's an article about this from ChurchWatch Central: Simila's Comeback: Hillsong's Naked Santa Puts Hillsong's Naked Cowboy to Shame

Here's another article from Pulpit and Pen: Hillsong's Naked Cowboy is Back-Except Now It's Naked Santa!

 We expect the staff at Hillsong to pretend that this didn't happen, then to admit it happened but it's not a big deal (because we don't understand their version of "fun") and then we expect Hillsong to turn this into a story about how their critics are too harsh and negative (and jealous) and take things "out of context." But seriously, is this what Christian pastors should be doing?? 

"Pastor" Esther Houston has no problem at all with posting sexy pictures of herself. In fact, Hillsong Church links directly to her seductive website full of sexy photos, where you can also find her clothing for sale. We are not making this up! Read about it here: Hillsong Website Links to Lusty Esther Houston Website.

HUGE Article Proving Brian Houston's Cover-Up; Hillsong Hopes You Never Read This!

Brian Houston largely protected his father, Frank Houston, instead of following the law by reporting him, when he learned that Frank was a pedophile. Brian's focus always seems to be "preserve and protect the Hillsong image-no matter what!" The Assemblies of God Australia also favored a "cover-up" mentality. This GIGANTIC article was a year and a half in the making.

In spite of all the gullible Christians out there, who believe whatever the marketing department of the Evangelical Industrial Complex tells them, we hope that this in-depth research will be appreciated and shared around the world:

The Naked Cowboy: He's a Hillsong Pastor?!

Pastor Ben Houston on stage with fellow pastor and "naked cowboy" Diego Simila

Pastor Ben Houston on stage with fellow pastor and "naked cowboy" Diego Simila

The big story last week was about the "naked cowboy" appearing at a Hillsong women's conference in New York. The "naked cowboy" (who actually has underwear/briefs on) turns out to be a Hillsong youth pastor. In case you don't know, the "naked cowboy" is a real character who walks around Times Square in New York City. So it appears that the staff at Hillsong thought it would be funny for someone to portray that guy on stage at this woman's conference. Once again, Hillsong has been caught on camera doing something questionable and inappropriate, but we're supposed to trust them and not believe what we can see with our own eyes. Dr. Michael Brown, the very respected and scholarly Charismatic leader said this:

Yes, Dr. Brown, it's accurate. Are you gonna ignore this obvious and blatant example of charismatic worldliness-you know, just like you normally do?? Here's an article from the great researchers at Church Watch Central that fills in the details of this situation: Church Watch Central
