I learned a long time ago that if you want to lose followers, just talk about their favorite singers/bands. I might lose a few after this, but so be it.
Hillsong has been on the slippery slope of false doctrine for a while, but many still love to listen to their music. But when a band/singer/group, etc., forms an unholy alliance (as Stand Up for the Truth so aptly put it), there comes a point when you should turn your back on them.
Hillsong’s 2013/2014 Conference is going to have a mix of speakers from some of the most apostate veins of the modern church.
This is from Stand Up for the Truth’s website:
The diversity is certainly represented in the speaker docket, uniting and melding Word of Faith (T.D. Jakes, the Osteens, Hillsong Church), Purpose Driven/Drucker-designed big business (Rick Warren), Craig Groeschel and Judah Smith. (Online source.)
The author of the article asks a pertinent question: “…at some point you just have to wonder how teachers of different “gospels” can find unity?” The key words there are “different gospels.”
Hillsong does not represent Biblical Christianity, but a false gospel which has no power to save. This is from the Hillsong Conference website:
“Our prayer is that our magnificent 2013 guests will again unleash and water the potential within our collective lives.”
Not to nitpick, but there is only One who is magnificent, and the ones who are speaking at this conference are not Him. Our magnificent Lord has spoken the true gospel, and that truth is that if we don’t repent, we shall all perish. (Luke 13:3) Instead of teaching purpose-driven prosperity potential and navel gazing, they should teach death to self and repentance. But they won’t.
What Hillsong is effectively praying for is that these self-titled magnificent speakers will show unrepentant sinners how to be happy unrepentant sinners. Let’s pray they don’t make them two-fold the child of Hell that they potentially may be. (Matthew 23:15)
