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

Clayton Jennings: Sexual Predator or Christian Evangelist?

Screen Shot 2019-03-26 at 8.56.59 AM.png

Clayton Jennings has over 800,000 followers on Facebook. He has over 450,000 subscribers on YouTube.

And he’s been caught doing and saying some really disgusting things.

His response has been to fight back against those exposing his dark deeds and to attack the young women left in his wake. He has a knack for portraying himself as a victim to maintain the support of his (largely female) fan base. This is a man who clearly should be repenting for his sins and stepping down from his favorite place: the spotlight.

  • This is what happens in the “church” when attractive celebrities are valued above sound teachers.

  • This is what happens when the “church” only cares about being “relevant” and “transparent.”

  • This is what happens when the “church” abandons Scriptural authority and ecclesiastical authority, in order to pursue a “spiritual but not religious” path.

  • This is what happens when the “church” over-reacts against angry fundamentalists who only preach the Law and fail to preach the Gospel.

  • This is what happens when the “church” sees theology as an enemy of faith, and the manipulation techniques of egomaniacs are allowed to run wild.


UPDATE!

The website “The Clayton Jennings Files” has been hacked into and all that information is currently unavailable. Here’s a (very offensive) screenshot from that site that we’ve saved:

Here’s a video from Pastor J. D. Hall (Clayton Jennings “#1 enemy”); see for yourself if he’s the dangerous bully that Jennings wants you to believe he is: https://www.facebook.com/pulpitandpen/videos/2289233598067569/

Here’s another video from people involved:

Kevin Zadai Breaks HPM (Heresy Per Minute) World Record!

In the following video, you’ll see a strange mixture of:

  • A Twilight Zone episode,

  • A New Age training session,

  • An insurance salesman who is somehow turned into a carnival barker for the Yak Lady who also has a side job as a fortune-teller that specializes in acquiring retirement accounts from the elderly and senile (oh wait, that was simply a description of Sid Roth)…

    Kevin Zadai has set a new HPM (Heresy Per Minute) world record!

    Watch his video and be amazed:

Bonus points will be awarded to anyone who can make it through all 28:31 of this Festival of False Teaching!

In case you’re concerned that this man calls himself “Dr.” Kevin Zadai in spite of not being a doctor, you can rest assured, because he was ordained by “Dr.” Jesse Duplantis (who isn’t a doctor either):

Church by the Glades has got a series of “sermons” based on… Halloween. Or vampires… or Haunted Houses… or something like that.

Here’s the song that kicks off their series Escaping a Haunted Mansion:

Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. Whoever does good is from God; whoever does evil has not seen God.

"Holy Sh*t!"-It's Heidi Baker at Brownsville!

Screen Shot 2018-02-17 at 10.00.47 AM.png

Here's a brief (and disturbing) compilation video of Heidi Baker when she was the special guest speaker at the Brownsville Assembly of God for a conference called Awake Deborah in 2003; the original video is two hours long:

Heidi tells somebody in the noisy, confused and writhing crowd "I know it hurts, it's holy though, don't be afraid..." She also asks God to "incapacitate" people. 

As Heidi is trying to impart something to Guatemala she is overcome by convulsions and says "holy sh*t, I'll come back..."

Here's that part of the original video: 

Dr. Michael Brown is a big defender of Heidi Baker, so you can be assured that she's legitimate!

Thanks to Is Not Satire for bringing this to our attention!

"Throw An Infant Against the Wall and Kick It Like a Football" On Sid Roth's Show

The horrifying "stories" of Smith Wigglesworth need to be re-enacted, according to Sid Roth. Here's an edited version of this recent "It's Supernatural" broadcast:

If you're a glutton for punishment, here's the entire show:

Although this teaching on Sid Roth's show sounds insane and extremely dangerous, it appears that Dr. Michael Brown approves.

Here's an important article about Smith Wigglesworth: "If You Can't Heal 'Em, Beat 'Em?"

Smith Wigglesworth was the inspiration for false teacher and proven fraud, Todd Bentley, among others. This bizarre teaching resulted in The Charismatic Day of Infamy.  

God Speaks Through AC/DC’s Money Talks? – The Pointe Church Fort Wayne, Indiana

acdclead09102017a.jpg

When you’re at an official Sunday morning worship service can you expect God to speak to you in a real way through AC/DC’s song Money TalksThe Pointe Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana prayed to God, asking God to speak to people in a real way (whatever that's supposed to mean). Immediately after the prayer they played Money Talks by AC/DC.

The entire service can be viewed here, (but perhaps you've seen enough already?)

Visual Proof That Modern Churches are (Much) Better

Dr. Michael Brown (Sort of) Approves of These "Fine Christians..." Watch at your Own Risk!

CAUTION: This is a very disturbing video. This is what happens when the false gospel of Dominionism/ Signs & Wonders/New Apostolic Reformation replaces the real Gospel of Christ and Him Crucified for the forgiveness of sins. This is a compilation video featuring Heidi and Rolland Baker and their fellow "New Apostolic Reformation" friends: Bill and Beni Johnson (links to all the complete videos are at the bottom of this page):

Recently, in an exchange on his Facebook page, Dr. Michael Brown was challenged (by Steven Kozar, Chris Rice, @Aspree and others) to call out these false teachers in order to protect his listeners from their very bad doctrine. False teachers like Jennifer LeClaire, Heidi Baker, Bill Johnson and Benny Hinn. Nobody suggested that Dr. Brown personally attack these people, but simply compare their teachings to Scripture. He repeatedly refused. Strangely,  he did not fully endorse them; instead he used vague generalizations like "as far as I know these are fine Christians."  Dr. Brown wants to be respected as a very knowledgeable scholar and expert, but he continually expresses ignorance about the people and teachings from within his very own movement. Dr. Brown promotes these people on his own radio show, and he's been a guest on Benny Hinn's TV show.

Here are a few screen shots where Dr. Michael Brown (vaguely) supports these people and says "the greater error I see is what some folks are posting here, sad to say."

Dr. Brown got really upset when I mentioned Heidi Baker along with other known NAR false teachers (he responded to my comment, but then deleted my comment, before he deleted the entire post):

 

Here's some of the exchange between @Aspree and Dr. Brown:

Dr. Michael Brown is using "straw man" arguments and other logical fallacies along with obvious deflection techniques.  

Our hope is that these shocking videos (featuring the very people he clearly supports) will eventually cause he and his many followers to see what's really going on within the "New Apostolic Reformation/Hyper-Charismatic/Signs & Wonders" movement.


Here's where you can see the videos for yourself. You will discover that we did not "take things out of context" or "make it look like they said something they didn't really say." Please do your homework:

Anointed Cake Saves Gay, Atheist, Bar Owner Says Lance Wallnau

What should you do if you know a gay atheist who owned a bar and has a severe chip on his shoulder about Christianity? Most Christians within the bounds of orthodoxy would suggest praying for him, sharing scripture, and inviting him to church. But when you're a nutty seven mountains mandate guru entrenched in the NAR, you might suggest praying over a cake, potentially expecting God to use it as a means of grace.

Listen to Lance Wallnau, seven mountains mandate guru, and major NAR influencer share a testimony about an apparent gay atheist bar owner who was converted through an anointed cake.

You can view the nuttiness in its entirety here.

Listen to Chris Rosebrough talk about this theological train wreck on this episode of Fighting for the Faith: "Anointed Cake That Cures Homosexuality?"

Exorcism by Zerbert? Is "Prophetess" Mattie Nottage Zerberting Demons?

It's possible "prophetess" Mattie Nottage may be zerberting demons, something potentially learned by watching The Cosby Show. (You can watch the scene here if you do not have a frame of reference for the zerbert.) Here are clips from a recent exorcism video she released.

It's hard to discern if she's actually making the zerbert noises or if those were edited in for dramatic effect. This "exorcism" is more about drawing attention to the false prophetess, than it is about setting someone free from demons. 

Here is the disaster in unedited long-form.

Customized Blasphemy - "Apostle" Kelly's Customized Holy Ghost White Cadillac

In scripture Paul wrote of his struggles as an apostle. He described how he hungered, thirsted, was poorly dressed, buffeted, and homeless (1 Corinthians 4:11). Apostle John P. Kelly has a much different experience.

Biblical apostles reference the Holy Ghost in relation to the things of salvation. False super apostles view the third person of the Trinity as an amazing adjective to describe the paint color on their customized Cadillac.

A few days before the customized blasphemy post, "apostle" Kelly posted what looked to be a rebuke to modern day "apostles".

I can't see real apostles using the Holy Ghost as an adjective for a customized Cadillac paint color. On the other hand, I can see money grubbing, glory seeking "apostles" doing such a thing.

Bible 2: Volume 1 - Hail to the King of the Jews, Baby!

Blasphemy has a name and that name is Bible 2.

Claiming to be the long-awaited sequel to the Bible this is so blasphemous it is hard to express our disdain without sinning. But we're still trying to figure out why Jesus is firing machines guns while riding my little pony. 

We're pretty sure some of the Seeker-Sensual Vision-Casting Leaders are getting their doctrine from this comic book. Makes sense if you think about it. If you think you can just make up your own personal Jesus then pretty much anything goes. 

Yes this is a real product that is really for sale.

Pastor Spanks Himself for the Super Bowl and Other Silly Stuff

Apparently, most men are ignorant brutes who won't come to church unless it's turned into a spectacle of stupidity. At least this "church" seems to think so...

Has your pastor ever publicly spanked himself before getting up to preach? If you attend Crossroads Church you can answer in the affirmative.

Crossroads Church held their Super Bowl of preaching, and of course they had a major supply of worthless nonsense. The self-spanking pastor was only the beginning.

They bragged that the church service was rowdy and offensive. They had a "family friendly" sex joke and pun, and even talked about junk in the trunk. Check out the animated gifs below just so you too can experience the worthless nonsense.

You can watch the worst of the worst below, including the self-spanking pastoral entrance, sex joke and pun, junk in the trunk, other antics, and even the pastor asking why people don't want to be associated with Evangelicals. Hmm. . . I wonder why?

If you really want to, you can watch most of the entire service.

This is a followup entry on a previous entry about their Super Bowl of Preaching gimmick. Yet another entry that does not need further commentary.

...in all things show yourself to be an example of good deeds, with purity in doctrine, dignified, sound in speech which is beyond reproach, so that the opponent will be put to shame, having nothing bad to say about us.
— Titus 2: 7-8

If you had Milky-Paps: The Creepy Tragedy of John Crowder

John Crowder is a tragedy of sorts. He appears to understand the work Jesus accomplished on the cross for us. At various times he explains it well. Yet this is all tainted by a high level of creepiness. I’m convinced it’s from influences in the Land of Charismania.

In this video called “Jesus the Suckling”, he asks the viewer, “If you had a set of milky-paps would you let little baby Jesus drink from your breasts?” (Around 12:55.)

That’s just creepy and strange to suggest. But it doesn’t end there. In a video about heresy hunters he set the Youtube video thumbnail to a photo of himself shirtless in an obvious attempt to invite controversy. But Crowder is a master of inviting controversy...

It’s not just his videos, some of his books are creepy too. He has a book titled, “The Ecstasy of Loving God: Trances, Raptures, and the Supernatural Pleasures of Jesus Christ”.

The book description on Amazon makes it sound like pleasurable out of body experiences are normal for all Christians.

 

It is time to return the joy of the Lord to everyday Christian life. The Greek term for ecstasy is linked with the pleasurable, God-given state of out-of-body experience recorded throughout the New Testament and the church age.

Reading the book description further, we can glimpse into the mystical charismania that lead to the tragedy that is John Crowder.

 

Author John Crowder shows you how God’s active interaction with men and women throughout the ages has always been marked by supernatural experiences. More than a state of mind, you will see how the nature of God’s ecstasy is found in the joy, bliss, and inner raptures of His presence.

You will also:

* Learn the history of trances in revival ministries.

* Gain a biblical understanding of Christian mysticism.

* Explore the ecstatic states of prayer and spiritual trances.

* Learn how to walk in continual joy and pleasure before the Father.

* Examine miraculous phenomena.

* Be refreshed by the new wine of God’s Spirit!

* Be encouraged to drink from the river of His pleasure! (Psalm 36:8)

There is no doubt that you can experience the joy and ecstasy of His presence every day of your life

It’s a distraction from the core message of the Gospel, and a distracting spiritual pivot taking his spiritual roots from the firm soil that is Jesus. There is nothing new under the sun. People have been trying to distract from Jesus since the first days of the church.

Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath. These are a shadow of the things to come, but the substance belongs to Christ. Let no one disqualify you, insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions, puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind, and not holding fast to the Head, from whom the whole body, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God.
— Colossians 2: 16

The tragedies can be avoided by simply remaining rooted in Jesus and his word.

 

And yet some people actually imagine that the revelation in God’s Word is not enough to meet our needs. They think that God from time to time carries on an actual conversation with them, chatting with them, satisfying their doubts, testifying to His love for them, promising them support and blessings. As a result, their emotions soar; they are full of bubbling joy that is mixed with self-confidence and a high opinion of themselves. The foundation for these feelings, however, does not lie within the Bible itself, but instead rests on the sudden creations of their imaginations. These people are clearly deluded. God’s Word is for all of us and each of us; He does not need to give particular messages to particular people.
— Jonathan Edwards

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??
