Carnal marketing attracts carnal men

In this video, we see Hillsong’s promotional video for their 2019 Christmas special in London. By no means could one gather from this that a church is putting on this concert.

Hillsong’s Brian Houston condemns Christian athlete Israel Folau for quoting scripture

The two biblical passages paraphrased by Folau are 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 and Galatians 5:19-21. Now, this, predictably, earned a Fatwa from […]
