Hillsong Goes Hollywood – YouTube

They’ve been packing out church services, conferences and concerts all over Australia. Now, get ready for the major motion picture.

This new movie chronicles the unlikely rise to prominence of the Australia-based Christian band, Hillsong United. The music of Hillsong is so popular it is estimated that on any given Sunday, more than 50 million churchgoers around the world are singing their songs. Hillsong has gone to Hollywood, and is about to release a feature film about their band Hillsong United. But where is all the money going to go?

I have just thought about the shocking aspect of this whole thing. Brian and Bobby Houston have reinterpreted numbers and money as the principal elements of the gospel. I will say this one thing here. Those two things, money and numbers were things that our Lord Jesus never ONCE aspired to. And that in itself is enough to condemn this movement outright!

Our Lord puts the issue of money back in its right perspective.

(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. – Matt 6:32,33
