A few TV programs seem to be focusing on CULTS / SECTS at the moment, which must be causing (one hopes) a few to question things in at the ol' Hall.Tonight we had a plethora of different cultish places presenting "healings" of various kinds. Which were all put down to "Faith" - a positive mental attitude CAN overcome most things.On Andrew Denton's show, coming up I think on Sunday, a lady from Hillsong Church will be speaking about its shortcomings.(Guy Sebastian's chosen place of worship.)Also the devious methods used by these HUGE religiousconglomerations with regard to getting their music played on mainstream radio and thus influencing the general public has been exposed recently. The church affiliated singers/bands make a CD and then ALL the people in the congregation are asked/told to buy a copy which ensures that the CD goes straight into the charts.Pity there isn't another expose on the GRC in the offing. Maybe if the "saints" are disobeying Noel and the Clones and are watching these shows on TV, some of this information might bedrifting in past the GRC mindcontrolling filters and the brains might be a little more receptive to actual reality.We can always dream I suppose!!!!!!Cheers,Glad

Ha yep... saw the following clip on The Chaser's War on Everything tonight... just HAD to blog it.

Hil$ong church parody - Praise the Lord

Praise the Lord for all the cash I've got
Praise him for my Rolls Royce and my yacht
Serving God ain't hard with a credit card
Jesus died so I could make a lot...

Praise the Lord, he's made us millionaires
Wave your donations in the air
We've replaced our hymns with ATMs
And soon we'll charge a fee on every prayer

Jesus Christ was a poor man, don'cha know
He should have used our accountants for his cash flow
Stuff the sermon on the mount, he should have had a bank account
2000 years with interest... He'd be rolling in the dough.....

Praise the Lord, this song is out on CD
Just $49.95 plus GST
Hallelujah, plenty of moulah
Solid gold baubles on my Christmas tree...

I've got all of heaven's riches!!! thanks to all you stupid bitches
Praise the Lord for modern Christianity...!

(The Chaser's War on Everything)

Reply to : MothandRust    Love the wording of the song. How absolutely spot on !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Noel tweeks and plays around with the wording of the traditional hymns to suit his cause, but I think that he should employ  "Chasers" lyricist, it would make for a much better spiritual experience than the one on offer at the ol' GRC Hall !!!

Cheers,

Glad

Yes Glad,
Andrew Denton's show was on last night Monday night.And this lady was speaking on her experiences of many years in this another CULT. "HILLSONG CHURCH." She has put her life's journey in a book form, and on air, to get her message over to as many as she could to the DELUDAMENT these cults are.
She has done the journey of many years as many of us on this forum have done. To come to the same conclusion as we.
Good on her, she put what she believed, was a very comforting way of life(which it can be) to follow, but also found deception to the importance of "HILLSONG" making money a business, to create wealth and also to help others. MONEY then became the main drive.
She was very interesting.
Maybe WE should go on and make a big noise,too. To enlighten the truth of the G.R.C...To how their doctrines(ACCORDING TO THE NOEL HOLLINS COMMANDMEMTS)Destroys many couples and families and also friends over the years to create not wealth and happyness, but unhappyness,and termoil in many many families and loss of family unity, which is life long, and does not recover.This is not love but destruction.
The more we speak out over time.Hopefully will bring a message to stay clear of these man made RULES and delusions.

To Us All,
Well what do you know,???? Did you watch "Tracy Grimshore's show tonight on Current Affairs."
It was a beauty,..They had the lady back on again who was on "Andrew Denton's show last night." Mainly reconfirming the hypocrisy, and the desire for wealth at "Hill Song."
One Priest(or Minister) came on to say,..all Penticostals with their hyped up CULTISH BEHAVIOUR,is the real American way to run their shows (meetings) As we too have experienced!!!!
So there seems to be an interest starting to show on the media, about the problems that come about being deluded and traped in these organisations.

Tracy Grimshaw finished up, asking if there were any other victims that have experienced the ways of a Cultish Organisation.

That would like to air their concerns on her program, to let her know.???

Well now focks, here is our opportunity.

Where are you "REVIVAL RESIST."( you must have seen the program,what do you think, R.R.????)

"Glad" "Mot"..(Here's a chance to be media stars guys HaHa.)

All you newbies who are quite active at the moment.Maybe you guys might like to start the ball rolling.

NOW IS THE HOUR, TO BE HEARD.

MOTH@RUST. You would be the perfect LEADER to really get your teeth into huge debates. WOW. Channel 9's ratings would go to the top.

Or is it, I just want to take REVENGE.
M.S.
Let"s Fly Away.

Sounds good.

Remember when dealling with 'the media' you'll be grabbing a tiger by the tail. Get yourself a decent 'media advisor'. Remember that that these shows are designed primarily as a tool for selling advertising (chasing ratings) not a tool for educating people. E.g. if they were serious about problems at Hillsong they would have identified that many in Christendom (beyond the RCC priest with an existing media profile), including many in the USA (!!) who have for years deplored the 'prosperity gospel'.
