When Troy's older brother, Peter, started attending Hillsong, Troy kept quiet. But when his 'trance' like state became more concerning, Troy tagged along. This fascinating tale of two brothers and their strong bond is continued in this episode. Troy, a social worker in London, is a very measure and fair type, wanting to be rational and just, yet he found it was too hard to accept Hillsong as anything other than a secret club, a cult. Come chat as we find out how he managed to get Peter out.. and what life's like now! Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

In this podcast, we sit down with our friend Linda Harrington of Clarity Keys Ministry. Linda has ministered to the Worship Circle family over the years at our REST Retreats and has been with us online and provided personal ministry to our coaches and participants. Join us as we discuss this encouraging gift that has edified us and reminded us that we are loved and not alone.
As we continue our week on living in and pursuing the light, today we'll explore how we as God's people are called out of darkness and to the light. Our new inheritance as God's saints is to step out of hiding, and walk in full vulnerable honesty before God and man. May you be strengthened in grace and integrity today as you're re-envisioned toward your calling to the light. Our Scripture for today comes from Ephesians 5:8, and today's worship is Let There Be Light by Hillsong. -- Thanks for listening to today's First15 Podcast. My name is Ryn, and I'm a part of the First15 Team. If you haven't downloaded our brand new First15 app, make sure to click the link in today's show notes to check it out! One of the new features that you can enjoy when you download the app is our Guided Prayers. We are adding new prayers to our library every month, so if you need a moment of peace with God, let these prayers be your guide! Several times throughout scripture, we read stories about people who go through various struggles and bear witness to the story that God has woven through their determination, faith, willingness to yield to the Lord in prayer and to be courageous in all the ways that He calls them to be. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus is the most compelling of them all as it tells the story of the God who loved his people and his creation so much that he chose to live among them, to sacrifice on their behalf, to redeem their lives, and to be and example of how to live in a way that honors the Lord, welcomes the kingdom of heaven in their lives, and anticipates the glory of the Lord in every beautiful way. It is our prayer that you would be encouraged today to seek the Holy Spirit and all his benefits as you journey with the Lord along the path on which he is leading you.

David grew up in unfathomable circumstances in Maui, Hawaii–a hippie commune with ten moms, 23 siblings and a troubled father. As David was finally taken into Child Protective Services, he developed the drug habit of his father and grew even further from the person the Lord wanted him to be. His brothers made a surprise visit to confront David on his lifestyle. Never having gone to church themselves, they told him to go. And David looked at them and said, “That's for old people. That's for boring people. No thank you!" But after their lecture, he felt a stirring in his inner being.Everything changed when David visited a church for the first time. Even though he said to himself, “I dare you to bless me,” the blessings came, along with a decision to follow Christ. And as he made the decision to be a 24-7 Christian rather than a Sunday Christian, he went from a druggie to an evangelist in the span of five minutes! His old drug habits disappeared. He soon became the evangelist at his high school and on to a career of discipleship and pastoring.

Dear AllThank you for listening to Into the Pray — our little offering of sanity amidst the ramping chaos of the Church and the anti-Christ world. You can support us here.Title music can be listened to here. Back in the spring of this I year, I published the seminal work, "The Glorious Few: Redeeming Radicalisation in the Kingdom of God." In the period of 2 weeks following publishing, several major things happened all at once that could have happened at any point in the previous 9 years. The disruption of the Lord culminated in Mairi resigning from her role as a Teacher of French in a large secondary school in Edinburgh and was a disruption that I wrote about prophetically in the book's epilogue. This podcast is now Mairi's testimony and, as the final podcast in our home where the podcast began, please let me encourage you to listen with a prayerful heart. Perhaps you'd also share the episode to your networks. May His will be done. Maranatha!My books are available here with info about the latest, The Glorious Few, here.

Immediately after Brian Houston was found not guilty of concealing a serious indictable offence, he was interviewed by Andrew Bolt of Sky News. In this interview, Houston chooses his words and reactions carefully, as does Bolt.

A new survey of worship leaders finds that four megachurches have cornered the worship music market. Should we care who is writing the songs we sing in church, and what gets lost when market forces influence local ministries? A sermon clip has gone viral showing a megachurch pastor scolding people who arrive late or leave early because they are treating the “church like it's a religious show instead of a welcoming family.” But are people acting like church is a show because that's the model church leaders have created? We explore the history of how churches came to copy theaters and its impact on the church's mission and power. Then, Phil talks to Karen Swallow Prior about her new book, “The Evangelical Imagination: How Stories, Images, and Metaphors Created a Culture in Crisis.” She explains how the current crisis in evangelicalism finds its roots in trying to preserve Victorian values rather than biblical ones.

In this week's conversation between Dr. James Emery White and co-host Alexis Drye, they discuss the spirit of toxic masculinity that has invaded the church - something at the forefront of sexual abuse scandals and stories of domineering male leadership. As Dr. White said, he's truly sickened by this. Episode Links An earlier podcast episode - CCP8: On Purity Culture - explored how the church sometimes tries to excuse sexual abuse within its walls by creating a caricature of men who are hopelessly ruled by their sexual desires, therefore attempting to put the blame for the incidents on the women involved. This spirit of toxic masculinity can also move outside the church and into the home, particularly when it comes to the idea of submission in marriage. Dr. White explored the deeper meaning of the words found in Ephesians 5, particularly in verse 21 that says: “… submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.” The idea is that husband and wife are to submit to one another. There are a number of excellent series that Dr. White has delivered at Mecklenburg Community Church in the area of marriage and family. You can find all of those messages HERE. One series that we want to highlight that is particularly relevant to today's topic was called #MeToo.” While it talked about the cultural implications of the #MeToo movement, it also has an installment called #HomeToo that talks about this need for husbands to also submit to their wives. For information on some of the statistics and data shared during this episode, check out the following resources: Paul J. Wright, “Pornography Consumption and Extramarital Sex Attitudes Among Married U.S. Adults: Longitudinal Replication,” ResearchGate; “How Many Women Watch Porn?” Fight the New Drug; “Child Abuse Statistics,” Child Help; and “Child Maltreatment Report 2021,” Children's Bureau. Finally, several podcasts would be worth going back to listen to as they relate to today's conversation. The recent episode “CCP67: On the Secrets of Hillsong and the Duggars” touched on male toxicity within both the church and the home. The episode “CCP21: On Gender” looks at the idea of gender stereotypes and how these might affect what it means to be a godly man. If we want a full picture of a godly man and how he is called to treat women, we should look no further than Jesus. He leveled the sexual playing field by uplifting the role of women in culture. This is being fleshed out well in the series The Chosen, and you can listen to the podcast “CCP54: On ‘The Chosen'” for more about that series.

When the term "wounded prophet" is used, often by church pastors, what is really going on?Of the biblical Prophets, Abraham Heschel wrote:"The sorts of crimes and even the amount of delinquency that fill the prophets of Israel with dismay do not go beyond that which we regard as normal, as typical ingredients of social dynamics. To us a single act of injustice – cheating business, exploitation of the poor – is slight; to the prophets, a disaster. To us injustice is injurious to the welfare of the people; to the prophets it is a deathblow to existence: to us, an episode; to them, a catastrophe, a threat to the world."Thank you...and thank you for listening.

They got detailed on equipment, best practices, interesting campsites, and the challenges and the blessings this new type of ministry has afforded him. Dr. White also stuck around for a segment called "Hillsong or Love Song." You won't want to miss it. Enjoy!

Is that a click bait title? Sort of. The truth is, a recent academic study revealed that the top 35 worship songs sung in churches around the globe are directly traceable to only four church groups (Bethel, Hillsong, Elevation, and Passion) and a handful of other artists. This means that a tiny minority of churches are shaping the worship vocabulary, theology, and liturgical methods of millions of churches around the globe. Is that a problem? It depends. In this episode I discuss with Elias Dummer and Shannan Baker about how the Christian Music industry is directly impacting how local churches worship. If you find this episode interesting, or know someone who should hear it, please forward it on!

Konrad goes toe to toe with an ex-Christian Atheist named Will, who creates content critiquing the Christian worldview. Alice tries to convert a Christian lobbyist named Chris from the Australian Christian Lobby.We discuss:Arguments FOR churches paying taxes:Separation of religious organizations from other non-profits.Churches should be held accountable and have a more complicated tax system.Financial transparency is necessary to ensure money is spent appropriately.False counseling services and lack of regulation are concerning.Churches should be taxed like businesses to ensure accountability.Arguments AGAINST churches paying taxes:Complexity of church structures makes it impractical to tax them.Keeping churches tax-exempt helps to keep them out of politics.Churches provide valuable services like non-government healthcare and counseling.Mega churches should be held accountable, but not all churches are the same.The right to engage in politics is justified if supported by people who pay taxes.PLUS super ep content! Konrad and Alice drop their filters and share their honest thoughts about being triggered by Chris from the ACL.
In this week's conversation between Dr. James Emery White and co-host Alexis Drye, they discuss a recent article written by Kelsey Kramer McGinnis for Christianity Today titled, “Worship Music Is Emotionally Manipulative. Do You Trust the Leader Plucking the Strings?” To be sure, there is much here to consider, particularly whether the music is serving to connect you with God or simply to the songs themselves… or even the people singing them. Episode Links In general, people seem to have lost a sense of the true meaning of worship. For this reason, Dr. White delivered a series at Mecklenburg Community Church called “Worth-Ship” to explore what it means to truly give honor and worth to God. Dr. White referenced the call to worship found in Scripture, specifically in Psalm 100 that says: “Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth! Worship the Lord with gladness” (vv. 1-2, NLT). In The Message translation of the Bible, verse two is written this way: “… sing yourselves into his presence.” The potential for worship music to manipulate our hearts and minds has been considered for a while now. Here are two additional news stories mentioned in this episode that are worth the time to read: Bob Smietana, “How Bethel and Hillsong Took Over Our Worship Sets,”Christianity Today, April 12, 2023. W. David O. Taylor, “Hymns and Neurons: How Worship Rewires Our Brains and Bonds Us Together,”Christianity Today, August 29, 2022. It is not only worship teams who can be susceptible to creating emotionally manipulative songs and experiences. It's also necessary for teaching pastors to make sure they are delivering a message rather than a performance. This was touched on during previous podcast episodes such as “CCP51: On Prosperity Preaching” and “CCP31: On Celebrity Pastors.” The discussion then shifted to online worship experiences, as a Pew Research Center study found that many adults still choose to attend church online and are very satisfied with the online worship experience. This was further explored by Dr. White in his book Hybrid Church: Rethinking the Church for a Post-Christian Digital World. Finally, when churches such as Mars Hill and Hillsong began to be investigated for their failings, a lot of people were quick to lump all large churches into the same bucket. We suggest that you go back and listen to two previous podcast episodes, especially considering that when the church was birthed into existence it was a megachurch! Those episodes are: “CCP40: On Criticism of Mega Churches” and “CCP53: On Asbury and Revivals.” For those of you who are new to Church & Culture, we'd love to invite you to subscribe (for free of course) to the twice-weekly Church & Culture blog and check out the Daily Headline News - a collection of headlines from around the globe each weekday.
Today we're joined by Ben Kirby, founder of Instagram account @PreachersNSneakers and author of "PreachersNSneakers: Authenticity in an Age of For-Profit Faith and (Wannabe) Celebrities," to discuss the state of the church when it comes to wealth and prosperity and how we elevate pastors to the role of celebrity. The PreachersNSneakers account posts photos of celebrity pastors, such as Steven Furtick and Mike Todd, wearing extremely expensive clothes and sneakers and leaves the questions up to us: Should we be glorifying this type of wealth when it comes to the role of pastor, and does this help or hurt prospective believers interested in the church? We discuss the relationships that have formed from this account, with some pastors engaging in good-hearted discussions with Ben about their clothing choices and others responding with more vitriol. We also discuss the two recent Hillsong documentaries that highlight the rise and fall of celebrity pastor Carl Lentz. Then we explain the seriousness of the pastoral calling and explain why many pastors who tend to show off their wealth also preach a toxic prosperity gospel with shallow and vapid messaging. --- Timecodes: (01:24) PreachersNSneakers (07:16) What is the point of the posts?

Dear AllYou can watch a video presentation of this devotional piece by T. A. Sparks here.Thank you for listening to Into the Pray — our little offering of sanity amidst the ramping chaos of the Church and the anti-Christ world. You can support this work here.Title music can be listened to here. Today's impromptu episode of Into the Pray functions as both an urgent request for prayer and an absolutely "bang-on" devotional from T. A. Sparks that you can read here. "Touch some Christians, or Christian institutions, and let the touch be even in relation to something more of the Lord Himself, and you will find an uprising of jealous regard for the institution which utterly blinds to that possibility of an extra measure of the Lord Himself...if you are spiritually sensitive, that you are not just encountering the established institutions, but you are encountering a terrific spiritual force."I personally encounter this demonic power on a regular basis but it is one that has and does attack us as a couple in quite serious ways. Please pray for our protection and for provision, discernment, HEALING and leading at this time. Thank you...and thank you for listening. You can watch my "whistle-stop" response to the horrible situation with Hillsong here.If you have any testimonials, please reach out, make contact across the 'digital divide', and let us know!Order our new gospel tract for your parish here.

I have with me today, Tanya Levin, the host of the Leaving Hillsong podcast. The same one was also featured on two separate documentaries.

I got Tanya Levin with me and we're going to dissect this foolishness reverberating from Hillsong Church Australia, the scandals surrounding Brian Houston, all the little boys they done slept with, covered up the scandals and no, it was not the gays doing this honey, you can't pin this on us, it was all them straight men, quote unquote.

Today's podcast provides a brief update on our previously advertised series, the introduction for which is here.The Hillsong scenario is difficult to watch, difficult to commentate on but, nevertheless, a reality that must throw us again into the place of prayer for the radical preparation of the true Bride of Christ and a genuine reformation in our tumultuous days.My commentary on the Hillsong situation will:1. Save you watching 4 hours of “The Secrets of Hillsong” docu-series;2. Provide my “take” on what the situation is saying to those who have been given ears to hear.

The docuseries The Secrets of Hillsong recently dropped, and evangelical megachurch Hillsong is back in the discourse of Christianity.

A finales de la década de los 80 Australia fue testigo del nacimiento de una de las megaiglesias más trascendentales de nuestra era, con una estructura en la que la música se volvió una herramienta para la captación de feligreses, Hillsong le enseñó al mundo una nueva técnica para florecer en el ámbito religioso. Repleta de casos de abuso sexual infantil y gracias a un control de masas extremo, llegó a ser una de las instituciones más influyentes en el mundo, se testigo de esta historia y de cómo la manipulación religiosa no tiene límites cuando se trata de obtener el poder. 2023 es el año de Herejes en Patreon.

Justin preaches a gospel deeply rooted in the sufficiency of scripture. Today, David and Justin discuss the importance of the inerrancy of Scriptures, deity of Christ, false teachings in the American church, and warn about Bethel and Hillsong - both the organizations as well as their music.
Excuse maker Antonio Brown joins Tyreek Hill's podcast, We See It Eli Zaret's way, Rosie O'Donnell wants to #FreeMenendezBrothers, Hillsong is another massive church grift, the worst charities in the US, and we talk to John Wayne Bobbitt on his penis-cut-off Anniversary. Eli Zaret drops by to discuss the crappy Detroit Tigers, the Michigan Panthers big OT loss, the Detroit Pistons 2023 draft, College World Series highlights, Donald Trump's golf boasting, Joe & Dr. Jill's major soccer announcement, Eli vs Pride Month, the NHL vs Pride Month, the Detroit Lions new helmet and more. The Titanic has claimed 5 more lives and James Cameron has broken his silence. Like it could have been a bunch of people. The worst stepson seems to have always been a menace. 500 asylum seekers died in the Mediterranean Sea. Dukakis Moments: Willow Smith may have sunk Jim Bentley's campaign. Tom Mazawey is accused of lying about Lili's 'three-on-a-tree' transmission. It's the 30-year anniversary of John Wayne Bobbitt's weiner leaving his body. We chat with John live from the road to get the "real story". Tyreek Hill has a podcast and he landed Antonio Brown as a special guest. Hags: Nicole Eggert. Heather Locklear. Carly Simon. Lauren Sanchez. Elizabeth Hurley (and her son). Kari Lake. Royal Jerks: Taylor Swift refused to be on that beast Meghan Markle's podcast. Netflix has given the royal losers an ultimatum. Prince Harry's content ideas are stupid. The Saudis are now targeting tennis. Adam Rich (who has more Twitter followers than Drew), died of a fentanyl overdose. Rosie O'Donnell believes the Menendez brothers are innocent. Hillsong: A Megachurch Exposed on Max shows that it's a major grift even outside of Justin Bieber's "hot" preacher. Judge Kahlilia Davis is in more trouble and may be the worst judge possibly ever. Some people are saying she will run for election in the future. Ann Arbor doesn't want people to be pulled over anymore. Car vs cop. Cop wins. Don't forget about the 2023 Detroit Ford Fireworks. Listen to them on WJR! The Detroit International RiverWalk is the best in the US... and it's closed for the fireworks. These are the WORST charities in the United States of America. Another person has been sucked into a plane engine and we want video. The Rattletrap was sighted and we got a shoutout. It turns out Rob Cortis' buildings are rattletraps as well. Donald Trump wants a national restriction on abortion. The Wagner mercenaries stirred up a possibly coup in Russia, but then decided it would be easier to go to Belarus. Hunter Biden went from federal plea deal to state dinner. IRS whistleblowers are spilling on Hunter. A leaked WhatsApp message is causing problems. It's just a complicated situation, right? Kadia Iman defends herself following her viral video of ripping a microphone out of a woman's hands. She's also an OnlyFans star. Stuttering John is playing games with an apparent interview WATP.
