Brian Houston tweets “what ACTUALLY happened in NYC” but offers “only guess”?

CARL – BRIAN HOUSTON IS THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM

Brian Houston has made it clear: he does not care about the truth or facts.

Brian Houston only wants people to agree with him.

The same could be said about Carl Lentz. These men just want to remain popular and say things to stay in people’s good books. Their behaviour over the Hillsong Naked Cowboy fiasco appears to be proof of this.

Recently, Carl Lentz had issue with us claiming that Hillsong was cyber-lynching Diego Simila off the internet. As a result, he complained to us publicly. [Click to read here]

To CWC: “this is … the second time I have had to clarify bad facts and address you on the very same issue you continually attempt to throw at my church.”

Carl Lentz has not clarified anything when we’ve asked him to clarify. Just like Brian Houston, he has played word games and used postmodern obfuscation tactics to silence and discredit us. If Mr. Lentz was authentic, genuine and sincere with his desire to see things clarified, we would have no problem correcting any mistakes in our articles. But he has refused to dialogue with us and only insinuate that we are only slanderers who hate people, (which is a typical Hillsong apologist response):

“So again, in your rush to write blogs about us, please do your best to at least get facts right. I realize you hate our church and you get excited to get new material up as fast as you can, that’s your obvious right. But your credibility suffers when you have to retract things..” – Carl Lentz.

WE’RE NOT THE PROBLEM CARL – YOUR SENIOR “PASTOR” IS

However, what is becoming more noticeable is Carl Lentz’s hypocrisy and blind loyalty to Brian Houston’s clearly stupid and deceitful leadership.

While we earnestly do our best to cover the facts as best as we can (screen grabs, sources and all), leaders like Carl Lentz and Brian Houston deliberately keep people in the dark over the truth of their cult-like shenanigans.

But why should Carl Lentz care about authenticity, genuineness, truth and integrity?

The fact that he appears to defend and remain silent over the antics of Brian Houston prove his facade is wearing thin to a lot of Christians. We are dealing with Brian Houston who is considered a megalomaniac and liar by the Australian media and a cult leader by Australians in general.

If Carl Lentz really cares about the “facts”, he would rebuke Brian Houston first and then address our so-called “bad facts”.

Here’s why.

BRIAN WANTS YOU TO SOAK IN HIS OPINIONS

Brian Houston advertised his cowboy post on his blog on twitter:

“Did you hear the one about a cowboy? This is what ACTUALLY happened in NYC.

Did you get that? Brian Houston is claiming to report “what ACTUALLY happened in NYC.”

But here’s the thing – Brian Houston is simply saying this – not because he has the facts or the truth. He is saying this so people can believe his ponderings:

“So how did someone come on stage imitating Times Square’s famous Naked Cowboy, (during a fun moment involving lots of other people), at the Colour Conference in NYC? It’s a good question, I’ve been trying to work that out myself.

Work out what Brian? Are you going to tell us “what ACTUALLY happened in NYC?”

I can only guess at this point, that some one thought it would be funny and sent him out there without thinking about the ramifications.”

… … …

There you have it folks! … the ACTUAL story! … From BRIAN!

… it’s a lousy guess?

 

Oh wait! There are other things he DOES know!

BRIAN KNOWS THAT HIS WIFE KNEW… NOTHING

Brian Houston claims that his wife Bobbie Houston knew nothing:

“I do know that Bobbie – my wife – who was convener of the conference was clearly unaware that this was going to happen and was taken back by it.”

What have you learned from Brian Houston here? Nothing.

BRIAN KNOWS THAT HIS WIFE SAW… NOTHING

Brian Houston claims that his wife Bobbie Houston saw nothing:

“She was at the dress rehearsal and there was no sign of a cowboy there.”

What have you learned from Brian Houston here? Nothing.

BUT BRIAN CLAIMS TO KNOW SOMETHING… WHEN HE ACTUALLY DOESN’T

“What I do know is that those who perpetuate the story, do so mainly with the help of a video, no context, and a good dose of what the bible describes as hearsay and rumour. He was wearing proper shorts, not underwear, and he had a flag draped over him.”

So… This is what ACTUALLY happened in NYC? There was only “a video” that had no context by which then people perpetuated a story?

The irony here is that when Brian Houston actually claimed to actually “know” something substantial, he in fact didn’t.

These are the facts:

  • We found 3 videos on the internet: [Video 1] [Video 2] [Video 3]
    • While the first two videos provide enough context, the third video provides extra context that reveals not one person on stage had a problem with the Naked Cowboy’s presence.
    • Furthermore, the third footage had the Naked Cowboy come out on stage with Hillsong leaders Carl Lentz, Joel Houston, Ben Houston and Terry Crist.
    • Further still, in the third footage Bobbie Houston gave the Naked Cowboy special acknowledgement and praise, then requesting he not be filmed on camera.
  • We found a photograph on Instagram of the naked cowboy with Ben Houston on stage.
  • This Instagram had the name of the person who played Hillsong’s Naked Cowboy – that being Hillsong NYC’s Youth Pastor, Diego Simila.
  • The Real Naked cowboy seemed to have seen this material and threatened Hillsong with legal action.

So what he claimed what he knew to be true was not true at all. So what “ACTUALLY happened in NYC” again Brian?

Brian Houston's actual story

“Opinion blocks truth.” – Brian Houston, Sermon: What Are You Soaking In?

If we were Brian Houston, we would not DARE suggest or insinuate that the real Naked Cowboy (along with others) do not have the actual story/context, or dare thump such people with our own fancy guess work. That is making people out to be deliberate slanderers. Especially when all we can offer is a guess at best.

So what was the actual story in the end?

Brian Houston’s opinion.

(And the whole world is watching him soak in it.)


FINAL NOTE

One thing we do know is that Brian Houston made recent changes to his blog post. We will end by posting them both up so you can speculate why he made these changes.

So how did someone come on stage imitating Times Square’s famous Naked Cowboy, (during a fun moment involving lots of other people), at the Colour Conference in NYC? It’s a good question, I’ve been trying to work that out myself.

I do know that Bobbie – my wife – who was convener of the conference was clearly unaware that this was going to happen and was taken back by it. She was at the dress rehearsal and there was no sign of a naked cowboy lookalike there. Carl and Laura Lentz were also not part of the decision. I can only guess at this point, that some one thought it would be funny and sent him out there without thinking about the ramifications.

What I do know is that those who perpetuate the story, do so mainly with the help of a video, no context, and a good dose of what the bible describes as hearsay and rumour. He was wearing proper shorts, not underwear, and he had a flag draped over him.

What I also know is that talk of apostates etc., is nonsense. Some well-meaning person just made a silly decision. It is unlikely to happen again.

So how did someone come on stage resembling a cowboy, (during a fun moment involving lots of other people), at the Colour Conference in NYC? It’s a good question, I’ve been trying to work that out myself.

I do know that Bobbie – my wife – who was convener of the conference was clearly unaware that this was going to happen and was taken back by it.  She was at the dress rehearsal and there was no sign of a cowboy there. Carl and Laura Lentz were also not part of the decision. I can only guess at this point, that some one thought it would be funny and sent him out there without thinking about the ramifications.

What I do know is that those who perpetuate the story, do so mainly with the help of a video, no context,  and a good dose of what the bible describes as hearsay and rumour. He was wearing proper shorts, not underwear, and he had a flag draped over him – bare-chested and perhaps inappropriate, certainly unexpected and unauthorised; but not naked.

What I also know is that talk of apostates etc., is nonsense. Some well-meaning person just made a silly decision. It won’t happen again.

Interesting that even after two days, Brian Houston has nothing else significant to add to his media statement.

It appears Brian Houston is insisting that denial is the best way forward.

  1. “So how did someone come on stage resembling a cowboy, (during a ****FUN**** moment”

    Why do Bobbie Houston, Brian Houston, and Hillsong apologist posters keep referring to “debauchery” as ‘fun’? Hillsong is a constantly changing rubix cube of bizarre behaviors.

  2. So, according to Houston, his wife didn’t notice the Naked Cowboy during “Dress Rehearsals”? I shall refrain from making all the obvious jokes about it being obvious that a Naked Cowboy would not turn up to “Dress Rehearsals”, but have to comment instead that this is all so out hand….. when did “church” become this kind of entertainment fiasco? Pretty sure Christ didn’t have a “dress rehearsal” for the Sermon on the Mount and yet the event is still being talked about and studied and impacting people 2,000 years later. I certainly can’t say that this event will do similar. Get your Bible out and read it Houston …..you have gone so far off the track it is terrifying. Bobbie Houston didn’t look to me as if she was too “surprised”…… of course, any wife of a Pastor who had any decency about them whatsoever, who was supposed to be hosting such an event would have immediately stopped proceedings, escorted this jerk off the stage, and apologised unreservedly to the audience. Did you do that Bobbie….. did you? What intelligent person could ever take this couple and their weak-kneed explanations, excuses and machinations seriously! And STILL, thousands attend their churches and fear standing up to it all and denouncing it as the evil it is. How will they explain to God on the last day that they did not adhere to Bible instructions and use their God-given discernment. I wonder if God is amused by the appearances of the Naked Cowboy and Austin Powers at Hillsong events and the other idiotic behaviour of this pack of wolves. Somehow I doubt it.

  3. watch all brian houston’s >squirming< from the start of this event. just like the scripture says:

    john 3:19-20 "This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed."

  4. Claudia. I think you were absolutely correct. I watched the video and did not witness any attempt to cover the cowboy’s nakedness or usher him off the stage. Sad to say that once people become so ensconced in such ungodly behaviour, lying and excuse making (then they gave me the gold, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf! -Ex 32:24) becomes part and parcel of their religious activity. But, just wait a few more years and you will see the attendees of these conferences without clothes. “These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come.”
    1 Cor 10:11. The two conferences (London and NY) is clear evidence that they are already on their way to repeating the same corrupt behaviour as the Israelites

    • Diego Simila has to come forward and tell the truth himself. He needs to put his ‘career’ as a Hillsong Youth pastor on the altar and trust that if he’s truly a Christian saved by grace, he can throw himself on God’s mercy, find a real church and start over.

      Cheers, Team ChurchWatch.

  5. I can’t believe Brian Houston changed his statement from ‘naked cowboy’ to just ‘cowboy’ in two places and added in ‘bare-chested and perhaps inappropriate, certainly unexpected and unauthorised; but not naked.’
    And Carl Lentz says that there is no ‘scrubbing’ going on by Hillsong! The fact that the Snr Pastor of Hillsong can’t even admit the Naked Cowboy was extremely inappropriate says a lot! Brian also says the Naked cowboy was ‘unauthorised’ yet like this article says, the Naked Cowboy came on stage with 5 other ‘Pastors’ (The cross-dressing statue of Liberty is also a Pastor of NYC) and not one of them backstage thought to stop this ‘well meaning’ Naked, person who Brian forget’s to mention is the Youth Pastor. People of Hillsong, don’t be sucked in any longer – open your eyes and see who Brian Houston really is!

    • The evidence is certainly there – it’s too late to scrub it now. Makes you wonder what he thinks he still stands to gain, because he’s losing credibility with every rewrite.

  6. Houston: “It won’t happen again.”

    No, surely it won’t, ONLY because sites like this are monitoring you since noone there dare holds you accountable, since everyone at your faux-church is afraid to say anything against you Brian.

    But, SOMETHING ELSE WILL happen in your lawless organization. And everyone KNOWS it.
