Family friendly Hillsong Includes the Dancing Naked Cowboy?

Romans 12:1-2  “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

Did you know that Hillsong is not only planning to release their own Hillsong movie, they are also planning to produce a new Hillsong Channel?

Honestly, is this the best face Christianity has the offer to the world? Is their message what we want to promote?

Recently, Hillsong decided to have their Hillsong London’s Senior Pastor Gary Clarke dress up and dance as Austin Powers for their UK Women’s conference…

Now it has emerged that Hillsong recently had the ‘NY Naked Cowboy’ up on stage for their “Christian” Conference in the United States of America.

If you have a problem with this, according to Hillsong, you’re going to Hell.

  1. Where can I see that? LOL

  2. I found it. OH. MY. GOSH!!! Unbelievable!!!

  3. GOOD GRIEF! I can hardly believe what I am seeing, and I have seen a lot of shocking things in “churches.” Hillsong is absolutely off-the-wall apostate, as discerning folks know. But this ought to slap even the most brain-dead deniers upside the head.
    Or not.

  4. It’s odd how the most judgmental people like to play the “judge not” card the most:

  5. as in the days of Noah… this is not is satanic

  6. This looks like a modern day version of israel rallies around the golden calf.

    If this were OT times lightning would have probably put a 50,000 degree punctuation mark at the end of this satanic performance.

    Glad I never visited Hilltrash, and I never plan to start.

  7. Hillsong has gone off the deep end!

  8. Yes I have a problem with your church claiming Christ, but being more like a church of Satan repent and ask God to forgive you . . .now! In Jesus name . . .

  9. Got to be fair: at beginning of second clip it can be clearly seen the “naked cowboy” is wearing blue, extremely short bum shorts/ underwear. However, the decision to do so in a so-called Christian meeting of any variety is unthinkable. If any person commits ANY personal sin as a result of seeing a near naked man on stage Hillsong is fully responsible.

    • Thinker – The Naked Cowboy is a well-known character in the States. The one on stage at the Color Conference appears to be just someone pretending to be him. Seeing the real character makes the copy (so cheerfully represented by Hillsong), even more inappropriate, don’t you think?

      Cheers, Team ChurchWatch

  10. In these evil times we know apostasy is at that church. So why do the people stay? They want it so and will eat the fruit of their doings, namely to be a part of the 1 world religious system that is developing….👹

  11. yuckeroo. was expecting some kind of gay mens chorus to rush the stage at any time. this church’s behavior is baffling. what cant they just be satisfied with a normal service?

  12. why is spongeBob squarePants on stage?

  13. oh i get it. naked cowboy has a Jesus tattoo on his shoulder that makes him spiritual. hillsong is on top of it alright. yeah baby booyah.

  14. “I think you are going to find [God] will deal with you. Big shocks ahead when judgmental people face their saviour. He only ever spoke harshly to the religious.”

    I really wish they would stop using that false, tired refrain! Jesus’ problem with the Pharisees wasn’t that they were “religious,” it was that they exalted human tradition above the Word of God (Matt. 15:3, 6; Mark 7:9, 13)!

    • “Jesus’ problem with the Pharisees wasn’t that they were “religious,” it was that they exalted human tradition above the Word of God (Matt. 15:3, 6; Mark 7:9, 13)!”

      Actually, they were false teachers. Illegal. Fraudulent. Hypocritical. They usurped the Levitical priesthood.

    • My point was that people (like those at Hillsong) often automatically liken anyone that adheres to the Word of God to the Pharisees, and that’s a false comparison since the Pharisees did not in fact adhere to the Word of God. Actually, Hillsong themselves would be more like the Pharisees–outwardly religious, but inwardly, full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

  15. Wow, reading these comments is like a meeting of the pharisees. Ha! I’m not even saying I agree, or disagree with what Hillsong did, but c’mon people. I guess when the website is called “church watch central” what can I expect?

  16. Why of course.

    • Pharisees on the one extreme, libertines on the other. Both equally wrong. Seek to enter by the narrow door.

    • So you like Naked Dancing Cowboys, Jordyn? And THAT’S your idea of “church” huh?

  17. Pharisees were not living for God but for themselves they were religious hypocrits . Hillsong has fell from grace and these comments are right true and holy …….

  18. Shameful! They have lost their senses completely! Appalling!

  19. And this is supposed to be a family church??

    Hillsong are some sick pups.

  20. This is what the prophet said when he wrote “woe to you who call evil good and good evil”. Satan has convinced many that if they proclaim a certain bad behavior is evil, they are being judgmental. That is a lie. We are supposed to judge what is good and bad behavior, and deem it as such. One is only judgemental if they’ve decided in their heart that the person engaged in the behavior deserves or is headed to hell. It is not wrong to call a spade a spade, or a sin a sin, when the behavior is clearly outlined by God in His Word, His commandments, as being a sinful behavior. We are to seek holiness and not look and act like the world, for if we do, we are enemies of God. Hillsong needs much prayer, for some reason satan has found a way to slip through their window and blindfolded them to the truth that modesty is a fruit of the spirit and worldliness is enmity with God, not enmity with us, but with God. Until such time, I will not buy their music.

  21. Romans 14 “Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. 2 One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. 3 The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them. 4 Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand.”

    Hillsong won’t judge you if you feel like wearing burqa-like clothing. That guy is not naked, he is wearing a bather while not at the pool. If you think it will give Christianity a bad image, there is already many others that do the job way better. So maybe deal with planks instead of pointing out specks in others eyes.

    • “Hillsong won’t judge you if you feel like wearing burqa-like clothing.”
      But they’ll condemn Christians to hell for questioning them and embrace pagans as though they are Christian brothers and sisters. Who’s got the plank here?

    • Christian Smith – we are quite aware he’s wearing briefs. So does the real Naked Cowboy he’s portraying on stage at a so-called Christian women’s conference. Ever seen the real character? Would you like your wife/girlfriend accept his regular invitation to grab his backside as part of his performance, Christian? #feedingsheeporamusinggoats

      Cheers, Team ChurchWatch.

    • “That guy is not naked”

      He GOES BY the name Naked Cowboy, WHAT do you think he’s portraying running around in his underwear? Stop being naive, son.

    • “Hillsong won’t judge you if you feel like wearing burqa-like clothing.”

      woah theres a whopper of a lie christian smith. brian himself is always condemning his critics and calling them ‘evil’ and even more recently implied they are going to hell just for disagreeing with him.

      so u dont have a clue what ur talking about.

      if u wanna take out planks start with brian c. (condemnation) houston.

    • “Hillsong won’t judge you if you feel like wearing burqa-like clothing.”

      tho i wouldnt b too surprised if bobbie came to church on a sunday in a burqa since her husband and muslims worship the same god.

  22. I am not surprise to see this. Christian have fallen away from the Word Of GOD to make it fit their sinful nature. If you have made your own god then I guess it does not matter what you do, but the God of the Bible is the one i serve and live my life for. His Word is the Judge . We need pray for these people. Jesus say if you love me obey commandment because it honors him. Christians in the 3rd world country’s are being slaughter for their faith and we have this junk in our churches. I guess they have lost sight of it who GOD is. I wont be one of those that compromise. Hillsong I do not agree with what you are doing or what you representing.

  23. And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one decieves you. For many will come in My name, saying ‘I am the Christ,’ and will decieve many.” Mat 24:4-5
    We are now seeing this manifested thru hillsong churches, very sad deception… Get out of the apostate HILLBONG church, cuz they gotta be smoking something to put on a performance like that

  24. I represent Naked Cowboy and own Naked cowboy Enterprises, LLC. I am the sole administrator of the Naked Cowboy® registered trademarks. I am the only person who can provide license of use of anything associated with Naked Cowboy and Hillsong has never requested any right to use our registered trademarks or Naked Cowboy’s likeness.

    In addition to it being a clear violation of Mr. Burck’s (AKA Naked Cowboy) right of publicity, it is a direct infringement upon Mr Burck’s registered trademarks.

    Mr. Burck is an Ordained Minister & would NEVER attend church in the house of the Lord in his Trade Dress and is EXTREMELY offended by this activity due to his deep Christian beliefs and respect for the process of gathering in the name of Jesus Christ and in the presence of God to worship and praise the Holy Father.

    Mr. Burck owns registered trademarks protecting his property rights in both the name “Naked Cowboy” as well as the character’s visual image. Mr. Burck strongly objects to any unauthorized use of his trade name and/or image without proper license and authorization—particularly those instances where, as here, such use is for a plainly commercial purpose and not for the purpose of spreading the Gospel. We are certain that Hillsong and its affiliates are aware of federal trademark law, but they must also be advised that New York’s statutory right of publicity affords Mr. Burck with additional legal protections against unauthorized use of his name and image. In view of these legal restrictions, and in an effort to avoid any further dilution of the value of Mr. Burck’s marks, we will be making a demand to Hillsong—together with any of its affiliates, representatives, agents, employees, and principals— to immediately cease and desist all such unauthorized uses of the Naked Cowboy’s trademarks in addition to taking Federal action in the State of New York to have these violations prosecuted.

  25. Hey friends! Nice to meet you all. I’ve been going to Hillsong Church for 4 years now. Before the bashing continues out of context, I’d like to just let you all become aware of what was happening in the video. This parade took place during the Colour Conference, organized by Bobbie Houston. Since the conference travels around the world, she thought it’d be fun to take a video in each country and then combined them all into one big video. The above clip was what were we doing-filming. This wasn’t a church service. SpongeBob, the Naked Cowboy, the dancing girls, etc. were all on stage doing this jig because they were supposed to just be fun different things that made it obvious this part of conference took place in America. Again, this was not part of a service. It was for fun. If you find other reasons to bash Hillsong, that’s on you, do your thing. But at least look at this post in the right context.

    • Thanks for commenting Emily – perhaps Bobbie should check out trademark infringements i.e. Naked Cowboy, before she takes her travelling circus around the world.

      Cheers, Team ChurchWatch.

    • “Since the conference travels around the world, she thought it’d be fun to take a video in each country and then combined them all into one big video.

      explain why must bobbie houston use worldly things (stupid cartoon, man in underwear, worldly dancing girls) to be “fun” and represent a country? the context doesnt change that. this is hillswrong at its usual: no different from the world. you cant tell them apart, other than hillswrong soils the Name of Jesus on a daily basis while doing it. when is hillswrong gonna stop imitating the world?

    • OK – it wasn’t a standard Sunday church service. However it was a *religious* conference held by a self-proclaimed Christian church.

      If Hillsong has become such a large church/ conference maker in USA surely there’s enough fun video clips etc. from the Hillsong attendees (themselves) of USA to show other churches/ conferences around the world!!! e.g. groups visiting USA landmarks, happily doing charity work only possible in USA…..

      …or perhaps fun secular characters/ images – even if they’re morally questionable in mainstream Christians’ eyes – are more important to Hillsong because they’re famous/ easily recognizable (unlike the average Hillsongee)?

    • Yeah. We get your point Emily. My church held a religious conference and we wanted everyone to know it happened in the U.S.A. So we did a video with Donald Duck, Dolly Parton and Playboy Bunnies (not NAKED of course though to make it ok!!), and Snoop Dogg smokin’ weed, all just for fun. — — — NOT!!!!!!!!!

    • Don’t take your church out of context Steve KH. 🙂

  26. hopefully someone representing austin powers will also claim a copyright infringement against bobbie houston infatuated with imitating the world. bobbie houston cant stop imitating the world because she is part of the world. it is in her and she is part of it. the 2 are inseparable.

  27. Can’t judge stupid,deception seems to be the norm

  28. …and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. 11For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie, 12in order that judgment will come upon all who have disbelieved the truth and delighted in wickedness

    (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)

  29. As a women it makes me feel sick to see this and I have always loved hillsong. What about a naked cow girl at a mens conference …. how would that go down.

  30. the sickening performance in this video was a pagan expression of hillsong’s admiration for the world.

  31. matthew 5:48: Be perfect, therefore, as your Heavenly Father is perfect.

    hillsong obviously isnt tryign to be perfect, theyre trying their darnedest to be debaucherous. sad. very sad.

  32. So wait. Did I read that the real “naked cowboy” is a Christian??? An ordained minister? What world is this? That’s equally not right. Why would ANY Christian or minister dress as a naked anything and be ok with his/her walk with Christ? It doesn’t matter if you are at church. As a “Christian” you are the church and your body a temple. Did I misread this? Please tell me Burck does not claim to be a Christian.

    • The real “naked Cowboy” who performs on the streets of new York is an ordained minister. He officiates at weddings for a fee.

      Diego Simila who impersonated him on the stage is an ordained youth pastor at Hillsong NYC.

      Cheers, Team ChurchWatch.

  33. the 2016 hillsong london colour conference opening included beatles music @5:45. thats offensive. has NOTHING do with Jesus, EVERYTHING do with worldly.who would pay ONE DIME watch this at worldly venues, so WHY anyone attend a “church” that does it ? this conferences opening should is DISTURBING to anyone possesses mind of Christ.:

  34. God is Love : God is Jesus : God is His Word : He is watching and He will not be mocked. It has been for such a long time that Churches have been able to run their own races and use God’s Word for their own blessed messages as they are so called. Blessed because we have such big Congregations and so many Churches throughout the World that belong to whatever we seem to be untouchable. There is a huge problem with that scenario God is coming back for a body that is without spot or wrinkle. Pastors are accountable for their flock. If they say God has put them there to lead then they are accountable for the actions of their people. Hence King Solomon and his turning to other Gods through his many wives. The Kingdom was taken away from Him and past onto someone else. The Greatest Commandment is Hear O Israel : The Lord our God is one Lord and thou shalt love the Lord thy with all thy Heart, with all thy Soul and with all thy mind and with all thy strength. Repentance is needed and a little more loving on God as He is Hi Word.

    • The body of Christ is without spot or wrinkle because of Christ’s finished work, not because we are “perfect” humanly speaking.

      Colossians 2:13-14 “And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.”

      The body of Christ given a righteousness apart from the Law that comes from God through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.

      Romans 3:21-22 “But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it – the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction:”

      “Apart from the Law” means apart from our behavior.

      Romans 4:5 “However, to the man who does not work but trusts God, who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited to him as righteousness”

  35. I think what everyone is forgetting is that as Christians we are to abstain from all appearance of evil. The comment above indicate that there is enough confusion over what was done on stage to show that fun and not abstinence from any appearance of evil was the name of the game. We need to be Christ like brothers and sisters. We are in the world but no longer a part of it. Lets get it right. It is only when we start getting into grey areas that the world can point fingers, and it will. Our mission is to go into all the world and preach the gospel. I don’t see the gospel anywhere on that stage. Come on Hillsong, repent and lift your game. While you play the world still needs a Saviour.

  36. The three words that went through my head when I viewed these videos were “Sodom and Gomorrah”.

  37. The activity in this video is best describes as “last days lawlessness.”

  38. This is not a Holy church of Jesus Christ. This is a wild party of demons of the devil. Look at this disgust. you are all mad! crazy. This is an insult to the living God. I will turn my face away from you and never look back. Just as Jesus would do.! you day is coming!

  39. THIS IS NOT A CHURCH, THIS IS SATANIC AND UNCLEAN UNSACIFIED BUILDING OF DEMONS. AND MANY ARE PARTAKING IN THIS EVIL ATTRACTION. First Timothy 4:1 “Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons.”

  40. Both sides of this argument fill me with sadness. They have a huge following, think of all the people they have reached. There are churches where you know the Holy Spirit left a long time ago- it’s just dead. But this church is obviously filled with people, they are seeking. But is there deception- yes seems that way. Several years ago we attended a small church, the Holy Spirit was moving, but so was the enemy. I kept having dreams and visions and felt the nudging of the Holy Spirit to speak to the pastor. I told him what I saw, he didn’t listen – all three pastors were brought down in different ways. What I learned in that experience was that we – the church needed to pray. If we truly want to do Gods will, He wants none to perish. We need to pray for righteousness, we need to ask for forgiveness. There is so much hurt and pain in this world- we need to love each other and to care what happens to one another. Prayer is powerful- imagine if we all prayed for this church?

    • Tammy – they have reached goats and drawing goats. And it is the goats that beating up the sheep. These people are not seeking God. Brian Houston said that himself. He has plainly stated a few times now that his church is successful because he is scratching where people are itching.

      Consider that statement. Where in the bible have you heard that?

    • “Prayer is powerful- imagine if we all prayed for this church?”

      Tammy, how ‘bout Imagine if Hillsong stop playing paddy cake with the devil so let’s follow the advice in the Scriptures & expose the works of darkness.

      “And do not have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even expose them.”

  41. I’m tired of hearing Christian try to excuse their anger on the culture they are from.
