“And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?” And he said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself.” He said, “Who told you that you were naked?” Genesis 3:8-11
THE HOUSE OF LIES
Recently, Hillsong had someone dress up as the Naked Cowboy on their stage for their US wome’s Color Conference:
Family friendly Hillsong Includes the Dancing Naked Cowboy?
We then uncovered that it was Hillsong New York’s Youth pastor that played the Naked Cowboy:
If You’re Sexy and a Pastor, play the Cowboy?
This cause the REAL Naked Cowboy to be offended by Hillsong’s behaviour:
Naked Cowboy “EXTREMELY offended” by Hillsong’s “activity”?
For the last decade, Hillsong leaders have continually created a culture of deceit and lies within their movement. To prove this, all you need to do is look at the bad fruit coming out of their ministry. Here is a classic case where a member of Hillsong blatantly lied to us to shut us up:
“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.”

Isn’t it nice that a Hillsong member politely corrected us of the actual context of the Naked Cowboy’s appearance at Hillsong’ first Colour Conference in America? Isn’t that loving?
“WHO TOLD YOU [HE] WAS NAKED?”
At the end of this article is another video of the Naked Cowboy at Hillsong Color Conference U.S. The Hillsong leaders on stage (Carl Lentz, Terry Crist, Joel Houston, Ben Houston and Bobbie Houston) are deceitfully constructing a false impression how amazing their “god” is at their Color Conference by livestreaming from a camera on stage, hyping the crowds to get excited, (a deceitful technique you will often see done in megachurches to advertise their events to those missing out.)
Before they went live, Carl Lentz mentioned to attendees that Hillsong was about to go live to “countries all over the world” (3:07):
“We’re going to say hi to all of the countries all over the world. Are you guys ready- we’re gonna have to count it down in just a second. And we need to let them know how we do it in the United States of America. So once when [she?] says ‘hi’, I’m going to count ‘3, 2, 1,’ and we’re going to go crazy. Look to the girl next to you and say, ‘[Tone?] down for what?'”
A few seconds later, Bobbie Houston pretended that she was *surprised* to see the Naked Boy on stage. (Dear Bobbie – It’s only your Color Conference that you constructed – and you’re trying to pretend to be surprised of the Naked Cowboy’s presence? That is deceitful!)
NOTICE – Bobbie Houston SINGLED THE NAKED COWBOY OUT to make sure he was not visible in Hillsong’s international broadcast.
This means Bobbie Houston KNEW that the Naked Cowboy’s very presence in that conference was not right.
Bobbie Houston was intentionally covering up the Naked Cowboy so the rest of Christianity around the world would not see the Naked Cowboy on Hillsong’s broadcast.
This is an intentional cover-up (something Brian Houston must have taught his wife). She knows this is wrong and her conscience bears witness.
Bobbie Houston says below (3:35):
“You can’t get in it: you’re naked! [Crowd laughs] *Points to Naked Cowboy* [Crazy laugh] YOU ARE THE NAKED COWBOY! [Crowd cheers] OH MY GOSH! THE NAKED COWBOY IS HERE!!!”

- It is interesting that Hillsong has decided to remain silent over the Cowboy cover-up.
So no one is bugging about the fact they had a dude dressed up as Lady Liberty? Hard to see him with SpongeBob and Spiderman up there and all.
Why are all these fanatical Hillsong cult members cheering for Frank Sinatra @ 0:45 ? He was not a Christian. He HATED Jesus. I take great OFFENSE at Sinatra’s attitude. Why does Hillsong ADORE Sinatra? Sinatra talked like that, yet he is a HEADLINER at Hillsong??? Hillsong is SICK… Hillsong, stop all your LYING!!!
Sinatra: There are things about organized religion which I resent. Christ is revered as the Prince of Peace, but more blood has been shed in His name than any other figure in history. You show me one step forward in the name of religion and I’ll show you a hundred retrogressions.
Sinatra: I don’t believe in a personal God to whom I look for comfort or for a natural on the next roll of the dice. I’m not unmindful of man’s seeming need for faith; I’m for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniel’s. But to me religion is a deeply personal thing in which man and God go it alone together, without the witch doctor in the middle. The witch doctor tries to convince us that we have to ask God for help, to spell out to him what we need, even to bribe him with prayer or cash on the line. Well, I believe that God knows what each of us wants and needs. It’s not necessary for us to make it to church on Sunday to reach Him. You can find Him anyplace. And if that sounds heretical, my source is pretty good: Matthew, Five to Seven, The Sermon on the Mount.
Furthermore, realize the stupidity and ignorance and hypocrisy of Sinatra’s “beliefs.”
On one hand, he resents Jesus. On the other hand, he tries (but fails miserably) to quote him. How stupid.
everytime hillsong puts on one of these productions i scratch my head and ask myself “what does any of this have to do with Christ?”
bobbie houstons statement at the end sums up what i find everything at hillsong is about and has always been about:
“Alright were we happy with that?”
galatians 1:10 For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.
john 12:43 or they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God.
what luke explained matches hillsong perfectly. hillsong is a man-pleaser so it can take their money.
luke 16:14-15 Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, were listening to all these things and were scoffing at Him. And He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves in the sight of men, but God knows your hearts; for that which is highly esteemed among men is detestable in the sight of God.
From naked cowboy, to Carl Lenz praising Oprah:
This Hillsong organization becomes more evil by the day.
It isn’t becoming evil by the day. It was evil at its inception. The founder was a serial pedophile. Nothing good can come out of a culture that still praises their pedophile founder as a man of god. The Royal Commission also exposed the fact that the Hillsong empire is a lawless, immoral movement. When the victim’s support person was asked what they would do next time if they were caught in a similar situation, she said they would go straight to the police.
If I may make a slight correction, the comment made before the countdown was “turn down for what.” (Not tone) That comes from a song by a very explicit rapper whose songs focus primarily on drunkeness and degrading women. The phrase basically means don’t stop partying, don’t sober up. Why this would be used at a women’s conference in a so-called “church,” I cannot say, other than it seems to fall into line with Hillsong’s worship of culture.
I find the entire display offensive to the core. Its sickening. Nothing of this represents Christ, the Gospel or God’s heart at all. Its utter blasphemy! Right from a leader of theirs dressed as the Naked Cowboy, to the bearded man with long dark hair that’s dressed in a white robe wearing the crown of the Statue of Liberty – as if to be portraying both Jesus and the Statue of Liberty! The spirit that comes with all of this is demonic. False Christianity and entirely about showmanship.
I was not at the event. But being that I was not at the event I can only go off of what I see in this video. I wish I knew the purpose behind this. But I found the images to be extremely distasteful. Could have done away with the naked cowboy and the statue liberty. Jesus dressed up as Lady Liberty? No one has the spirit of “common sense” to know that this is going too far. We are living in a culture of wanting to be entertained. This is terrible.
From watching a video like this, I would never think of Hillsong as being Christians. Why would i? There is not one thing happening on that stage that points to Christ, the Gospel, or any Biblical teaching. If this isn’t distracting from anything the church is supppse to be or do, I don’t know what is.
I’m totally shocked at Hillsong, a church I have great respect for. I feel sick to the core that a church would stoop this low. I just heard about this on a program and thought I would research to see if it was true. I hope the Leader will address this conduct and set them back on the right path. Sad to say it’s hard to win back most people trust and respect. This was an eye opener. However as long as we have breath, we can get it right with God and ask for forgiveness and never travel that road again.
“I feel sick to the core that a church would stoop this low.”
Hillsong is not a church. It was never a church to begin with. It was founded by a man who was a serial pedophile, using the guise as a minister to hide his crimes. His son is also using the guise as a minister to do anything he wants to do.
Hillsong are quick to condemn Christianity and the churches for not being like them but have not demonstrated they even know how to behave or function like a church. Simply look at Brian Houston.
