Hillsong Hires Law Firm To Investigate “Cultural Issues’ at Carl Lentz Former Church

Hillsong Church has elaborated on head honcho Brian Houston’s announcement that an investigating is being launched into the inner workings at Hillsong NYC after Senior Pastor Cal Lentz was fired for having a 5-month cheatfest with another woman.

We reported earlier that the leadership of the Australian prosperity-preaching megachurch was launching an “independent investigation” into the “inner workings” of their East Coast church plant in light of revelations that fired celebrity senior pastor Carl Lentz was engaging in at least one adulterous affair.

Houston said that the church needed “a solid foundation for a fresh start and new beginning” leading many to believe that there is more than just a wayward pastor and a heap of bad theology at their New York location, but rather the whole foundation is rotten.

Houston has since elaborated on what that would look like and why. Speaking via livestream to some of Hillsong NY’s congregants, he said:

“It’s a time when I’m so grateful for the team we have there, we’ve got such strong, committed and deeply loyal people who are part of the team. And I must say that not only [are] our key leaders in New York supportive of the decisions that have been made, but they have in fact been part of the process. And in a season of transition they’re looking over the things and making sure that all is in place, that people are pointed forward.”

He also said in a statement to the Daily Mail.

“Since last week’s announcement of a leadership change at Hillsong East Coast, we have heard from a number of people about their experiences and concerns. It is important that we establish the truth and then do everything we can to ensure our church is both a safe place and one that seeks to glorify God in all that we say and do.”

“For this reason we have decided to appoint a New York based legal firm that is not associated or affiliated with Hillsong to conduct an in-depth review and investigation into all concerns and any wider cultural issues. We are taking this extremely seriously and on the basis of this report, we will be better positioned to take whatever actions are deemed necessary to right the wrongs and see Hillsong East Coast move forward in a way that enables many more people to find hope in Jesus.”

Here is the salient point, however: the message that Carl Lentz was preaching every Sunday is far more offensive and destructive than his acts of adultery. The theology that springs forth from Hillsong is more cancerous and poisonous than his marital infidelities.

We’ve covered it every which way to Sunday, as have other faithful biblical discerners. Go to Pulpit & Pen and in the search type “Hillsong.” To listen to systematic responses and assessments of full-length Hillsong sermons, visit Chris Rosebrough’s “Fighting for the Faith.” or click this link from The Messed up Church to get a cornucopia of links showing the problems with them.

The long and short of it is that Hillsong Church is a word of faith, prosperity preaching organization. Brian Houston is a heretic who routinely peddles and promotes false teaching. Everything they do is seemingly an advancement of the popularity gospel, and they are compromised on the sin of homosexuality. The foundation of this church is wicked. Wretched theology permeates every pore.

The fact that so many people, including Hillsong parishioners, are more outraged and upset that one of their pastors was sleeping around, rather than the fact that they have not been taught the word of God and instead have been fed a slow drip of spiritual strychnine this whole time, is a damning indictment against them.
