Philip Powell, a Pentecostal preacher and a former general-secretary of the AOG, is concerned by the more flamboyant Pentecostal churches. „It is my conviction that the present Pentecostal leaders like Brian Houston [pastor of Hillsong] and Phil Pringle [pastor of Christian City Church] have hijacked the godly movement, which was simply a fellowship of churches. They have turned it into a hierarchical denomination for selfish purposes and ends. It has become a fellowship of ministers, not churches,“ he says.

„Many of these ministers have made themselves multi-millionaires. They are no more than business magnates who benefit from the tax-free status of corporations that they lead. They are not ‚pastors‘ but business managers who have cashed in on a loophole in the Western governmental tax system.“

    … und für neue baptistische Liederbücher werden wieder jede Menge Hillsong-Lieder gewünscht, ganz von der Basis aus.

    Das zeigt doch nur, dass wir dringend besser über bedenkliche Hintergründe aufklären müssen.

    Na ja, schon mal die Quelle (Philip Powell) durchgecheckt, ob der so sauber ist.
    Beispiel von seiner Website:

    „On one occasion I told my former colleagues who were touting one of their
    members as an apostle that he was precluded on account of the character of
    some whom he appointed as pastors. One was a homosexual and another be-
    came a double adulterer. These things do count even though the modern church
    so readily overlooks them and hides the facts. Apostles don’t appoint men of
    questionable character and conduct as pastors or elders of God’s people.“
