    “Mr Mesiti went on to become a motivational speaker and self-described “prosperity activist” who now instils people with “millionaire mindsets”.

    “Not to brag, but I am a world-renowned prosperity and mindset coach with over 2 million of my books and products sold worldwide,” he says on his website.

    His stated ambition is to create 10,000 millionaires within his lifetime and he has several speaking appearances slated for 2016.”

    Yet even after HILLSONG LEADERS THEMSELVES ADMIT it is ALL ABOUT PROSPERITY & THE MONEY, their foolish church members still, staring right in the face of it, deny this. How sad this Hillsong faux-church is.

    “A former Hillsong Church minister who became a motivational speaker faces domestic violence charges after he allegedly assaulted his wife in a “fit of rage” on New Year’s Eve…The accused was heavily intoxicated and in a fit of rage over a family issue,” Sergeant Michael Plass said.”

    Titus 1:7 – For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not SOON ANGRY, not GIVEN TO WINE, no STRIKER, not GIVEN TO FILTHY LUCRE;

    One, Two, Three, Four. Grand slam. On all 4 qualities — Fail. This man is not qualified for any role in the Body of Christ. Neither are those who gave him credibility (Pringle & Houston).

    Coming from an Australian Police Officer, that is NOT referring to drunk in the Spirit!
    Key words that stand out in the article are:-
    BRIAN HOUSTON-PHIL PRINGLE- PAT MESITI
    HEAVILY INTOXICATED FIT -OF RAGE
    ASSAULT- BODILY HARM
    SEXUAL ADDICTION
    What can a clown like Mesiti teach anyone, except blindly leading them down a broad road to destruction?

    Phil Pringle seems to have a knack for picking and giving credibility to cheats and liars, doesn’t he?

    Pat Mesiti, Kong Hee…. I wonder how many others there are out there whose career he’s supported so wholeheartedly.

    Contrasting Pat Metisi with the Bible, there is a complete difference:

    “Mr Mesiti went on to become a motivational speaker and self-described “prosperity activist” who now instils people with “millionaire mindsets”.

    “Not to brag, but I am a world-renowned prosperity and mindset coach with over 2 million of my books and products sold worldwide,” he says on his website.

    His stated ambition is to create 10,000 millionaires within his lifetime and he has several speaking appearances slated for 2016.”

    Matthew 6:24

    “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

    If he hasn’t actually been a minister at Hillsong in 15 years, at what point does that connection cease to be relevant?

    2 A bishop then must be blameless, THE HUSBAND OF ONE WIFE, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;…..he has FAILED on ALL qualities..especially on the 2nd one…he continues to live in ADULTERY….but because adultery is so rampant in Christendom..from the pulpit to the back-most pews..NO ONE has the guts to mention it…as about 25% – 50%+ of congregations would walk out on the preacher who preached the forsaking of adultery .. https://plus.google.com/u/0/106273234376529674966/posts/5WFs7EweBDC…..https://www.facebook.com/1Man1Wife4Life/

    Allowing married homosexuals in NYC, to have church membership (even if they do membership)and to be on the worship team to this scandal posted is a clear sign that Hillsong is not a Christian denomination

    • Nine News reports…

      “Motivational speaker and former Hillsong preacher Pasquale “Pat” Mesiti will fight allegations he attacked his wife on New Year’s Eve.

      The 56-year-old, who describes himself on his website as an “income acceleration coach” whose goal is to help create 10,000 millionaires, did not appear in Sydney’s Parramatta Local Court on Tuesday when the case came before a magistrate for the first time.

      Mesiti has been charged with two domestic violence offences, common assault and assault occasioning actual bodily harm, both of which were allegedly committed against his wife Andrea in the northwest suburb of Glenhaven between 10pm on December 30 and 10.35pm on December 31.

      He has entered a plea of not guilty on both counts.

      Mesiti is due back in court next month, but in the meantime must comply with an interim protection order that prevents him from approaching Andrea Mesiti within 12 hours of consuming alcohol or illicit drugs.

      The former evangelical preacher, who lives in Kellyville Ridge in Sydney’s affluent Hills district, has penned a number of self-help books including Staying Together Without Falling Apart, billed as a definitive guide to helping men and women “thrive together in a modern day relationship”.

    Heavily intoxicated, drunken rage, domestic violence… Why am I not surprised at these allegations? Mesiti’s strutting performance in the video (the Joseph generation) is sickening.

    Proverbs 26:11-12 New King James Version (NKJV)
    11 As a dog returns to his own vomit,
    So a fool repeats his folly.
    12 Do you see a man wise in his own eyes?
    There is more hope for a fool than for him.

    Separate yourself from your mentors and supporters, lose your love of money and commit yourself to God with all your heart.

    Mark 8:36 New King James Version (NKJV)
    36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?

    I attended a C3 church some time ago, when Pat had been ‘restored’ under Phil Pringle. Something that troubled a lot of us under C3, was that Phil requested other C3 churches such as the one I was attending to “host” him as part of launching Pat back into ministry. My senior pastor fully disagreed with this. He stated this to Phil who asserted his authority and put the pressure on our church to lovingly accept Pat as a speaker.
    So my pastor (whom I ever respect) got up one morning and told the church of this issue, and how he did not agree with Pat being released back into ministry. He said our church may have to host Pat, but that he was forewarning us of this, and that we had permission to be angry, strongly disagree and to not attend church on that day when Pat was due to speak. My family and I decided we would not attend.

    Needless to say, our pastor’s words must have been taken on board by Phil Pringle as Pat never did end up speaking at my church, ever.

    So I guess I would say this – I agree with your statements regarding Phil Pringle’s handling of Pat Mesiti, and that Pat should never be on any preaching circuit.
    There are actually many hillsong and C3 churches that agree! I believe the reason Pat was handed over to Phil for “restoring” and not restored in his own church, hillsong, was because of the outrage from hillsong members.

    Please understand that belonging to a hillsong or C3 church does not make a person less of a Christian.
    There are many pastors/members that push back on multiple issues.
    I believe this is good – as one listens to rebukes from family members, moreso than strangers. God many times disciplines His church from inside the family.
    I know that although Pat may have been on the speaking circuit, it certainly wasn’t promoted among C3 or hillsong churches (apart from the mothership church) after their initial try, due to the backlash. It makes sense that they got him speaking at oversees churches I guess!

    I pray both hillsong and C3 learn from this mistake. I also thank God for the churches in both these movemments that stood up and pushed back against bad decision making.
