Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

Hillsong - People in Glass Houses

A girl who attended Hillsong Church since the age of 14 has writen a book "People in Glass houses" condemning the church for it's prosperity teaching and has been kicked out and ordered not to set foot on Hillsong property.

In the interview (Listen) (video) the girl simply nit picked what is wrong with Hillsong but not the core problem.

Hillsong is a type of catholic church they preach the same universal message "God loves you and wants you to choose to become a Christian and become part of our Church"

The true gospel message is the OPPOSITE

God hates the wicked and must punish all those who have sinned. Jesus is Sovereign (Takes council from no-one) and will build His church. The members are chosen by Him alone. In other words you must be born again by the work of Jesus Christ. He calls you, He chooses you and while you are a sinner Jesus makes you a new creation even though you are "haters of God and lovers of self"

When you are born again you cry out on the name of Jesus in the same way that a child takes their first breath. "Not of their doing but all of Jesus"

See how this is the opposite?

You can always tell the difference between a someone who is truly a Christian and one who is a counterfeit. One testifies to Jesus saving them the other testifies to a church business like Hillsong.

Wow! PB
I have not heard the narrow way gospel of salvation like that for a long time, well done.
You know that the salvation gospel like you said, is not very popular in any rich and modern church.

It is easier to convince someone to make a decision, instead to tell them the truth.

They preach the universal gospel.
All you need to do is, choose Jesus and say the sinner’s prayer then join our church and believe some doctrines like regular church attendance, commitment, tithing and of course the trinity etc.
Then they ask you to sign a partnership form. If you do not sign, then you are an outsider.

I wonder whether they ever read the Bible??

Who do you think is behind her speaking out?

God or the devil?
