“As for Saul, he made havock of the church” Acts 8:3. What Saul did before he was saved is what Hillsong and others like it are doing today.
‘Hillsong Dallas has closed and other locations in the megachurch network are reeling from accusations of sexual and financial misconduct. But Hillsong Atlanta—the first in the denomination to be led by an African-American pastor—celebrated its grand opening this past Sunday.
Its services feature rap music and took place in a former nightclub, Christianity Today reported. Sam Collier, the senior pastor, took the stage in the dimly lit space to cheers from a diverse crowd.
Collier came to Hillsong from Andy Stanley’s North Point Ministries but has deep roots in Atlanta’s Black community, having previously ministered at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, a well-known Black congregation in the metro area. Collier also served at Martin Luther King Jr.’s home church, Ebenezer Baptist Church.
In introducing Hillsong global senior pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston, Collier acknowledged the denomination’s recent controversies. “It’s been a difficult year, but you’re the greatest leaders I’ve ever met,” Collier told them. “We pray against demonic forces” and for “victory in Jesus’ name” for the Houstons, he added.
Similarly, Hillsong Atlanta posted on Instagram, “We have no words for what God did this past weekend other than, ‘Great Days Ahead. Thank you Jesus . . .”’https://julieroys.com/hillsong-atlanta-launch-turmoil/?mc_cid=6914ede852&mc_eid=b13d34ad49
These worldly mega organizations are not New Testament Bible teaching, Bible preaching, Bible believing local New Testament churches. Note in Acts 16:5 And so were the churches established in the faith NOT in hyper emotion and feelings.
