What are your views about Hillsong Church (pls view report from Channel 7 Sydney Australia)?

Channel 7 in Sydney Australia did a tv program 1 week ago on the popularity of hillsong church over the world (1million followers) , controversial since its pastor Brian Houston refused to speak to the media previously. Does wealth and a successful church go hand in hand ? Why is it so popular amongst the younger generation ? Would be great to hear your opinions ...

My two cents...

Many people are treating religion like a business. Oh, they start off very devout and humble but once it passes a certain mark, it's about the bucks.

The People like the show. I want to be entertained for my tithe. (better choir, big screens, better pews)- pack 'em in by the thousands - now, truly, how can one pray like that?

Many of the young play follow the leader of the Hollywood starlets... Scientology, Kabala or any other, for example.

What it boils down to is that they totally are forgetting about GOD. They are looking at this day of the week as a social gathering for 1-3 hours and if God received a really honest 15 min, He was lucky.

Don't kid yourself - Goe cannot be fooled... God always protect what is truly his. His true church will prevail always...all others will fall by the wayside, along with those pastors who did not feed the sheep.

God help us all to remember why we are there!
