We often have popular critics who oppose our sites and criticise us because of what we write on Hillsong. However, we need to acknowledge that it was one of our most popular critics who goes by the name of NewTaste that broke the story.
Once again, this controversy falls straight onto the shoulders of Carl Lentz and Brian Houston. What are they going to say? It wasn’t the critics that broke the story, it was one of their own who vehemently DEFEND Hillsong.
Now that the news is out, Pulpit & Pen decided to address this controversy again on social media. Here is the dialogue between P&P and Reed Kelly.
P&P: Remember back when we were told folks talked to Lentz personally and he had “handled this”? https://twitter.com/thereedkelly/status/655922738587037697 … Good times, Good times.
STRANGERS WITH CANDY
The phrase stranger danger summarises the danger associated with adults whom adults/children do not know. Hillsong are this stranger, presenting ear candy sermons and eye candy light shows. Sadly, Josh Canfield and Reed Kelly fell for Hillsong’s candy and got on the Hillsong bus.
While Hillsong, Canfield and Reed may complain that Pulpit&Pen were mean or hurt Kelly’s feelings in the above tweet exchange, it was the right thing to do.
Reed Kelly and Joshua Canfield are involved in an incredibly dangerous cult that will quite happily affirm their sinful lifestyle, capitalise off their success, leave them to the dogs and allow them to burn in hell for eternity.
Pulpit & Pen are trying to help Kelly and Canfield to see what they are involved in. That’s not mean – that is LOVING. Josh Canfield and Reed Kelly got in the car with strangers and are defending their predators against those trying to help them see the truth. And what’s worse is the Christian media are neither acting like journalists or as Christians with their reporting on the Hillsong cult.
Then again, it’s easy for these men not to see the truth when you have the Christian media defending these spiritual predators. (Not only are the Christian media defending these predators and crooks – they are promoting them.) It appears that Charisma Magazine, Christian Post, Charisma News, Christianity Today, The Bible Society, Eternity Magazine would rather defend institutions that lie before the Royal Commision and cover up paedophilia (which is a criminal offense in Australia) rather than promote Godly men who defend the Christian faith from these criminals and their cohorts.
If secular journalism does not promote mafia networks, then why is it okay for Christian journalists to promote Hillsong? Will they continue to be propaganda rags for satan’s servants or will they actually grow a Christian spine and report with journalistic integrity and with the Spirit of Truth in them?
Will there be PROPER journalism this time exposing the devious behaviour of Hillsong’s leadership over the Broadway couple? Or will they again release their attack dog Dr. Michael Brown to defend these spiritual frauds in the name of “love” and “Jesus”? Dr Brown came to Houston and Lentz’ defense last time. What’ll he do now? Become a browner Dr Brown?
Christian news sites need to get out of the gutter and get guts. Let’s pray that the integrity of Christian journalism can be better than secular journalism.
