“You have heard that it was said to the ancients, ‘Do not murder,’ and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment.” Matthew 5:21-22
“Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.” 1 John 3:15
We draw Brian Houston’s attention to these scriptures. Over the last two years, Houston has demonstrated an intense dislike and unbiblical focus towards Tanya Levin as he attempted to destroy her reputation and her life through ugly fabrication and unwarranted legal action.
Can we assume that Brian Houston’s campaign against Tanya Levin is finally over?
Tanya Levin reports,
WE HAVE AN OUTCOME!! While His Honour did not find error with the original decision on 21/12/2015 in the local court, He stated that it was inappropriate to convict or punish me for trespass, as it was reasonable that I was not aware I was doing anything wrong and that I was exercising my perceived freedom of speech.
Convictions dismissed due to this, my impeccable character, and my age.
Thank you so much to everyone for all your amazing love and support throughout the last 2 years!!!

Margot Clifford has this to say about how this smear attempt did more damage to Hillsong thanks to Brian Houston’s hatred towards Tanya Levin:
“Congratulations, Tanya Levin, on fighting the good fight and a great result. I’m tapdancing at the success of the only appeal I’ve ever personally donated to.
Not only is Tanya the author of a pretty good book (People in Glass Houses), but it was always wrong for a church, any church, to lead its congregation in prayer to ‘forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us’ while putting a former member through the stressful prospect of a criminal record for two years over such a minor and unwitting infraction.
We should be treating others as we want to be treated.

Tanya also writes:
“I waited all this time to tell you that Hillsong tried to hit me with their pedo stick, and why we went to court, you, me and all of us. We have done this for a young person, let’s call her Mandy.
The police facts sheet said I was seen talking to children.
While I was waiting for further police instruction on the day in question, a girl came up to me, and said “what’s going on? I thought we were all family here.”
I asked her why she attended. She said, “I’m 15 and I’m in foster care. I have to.”
I asked her if she liked it. She said, “I don’t like how Brian makes fun of people with mental problems, because I have mental problems.”
I snuck her a book and she went on her way. Even typing it two years later gives me chills.
We kept going for Mandy. So that there is now a legal record of who Hillsong are and what they’re prepared to do to and for La Familia.
Thank you for supporting me, but mostly for all the Mandys out there who are told that these lies are family, and are too vulnerable to know different.”

It’s important to note that it appears the secular world understands morality and the teachings of Jesus better than Brian Houston and Hillsong members.
