Hillsong Songwriter: "songs are like poo"

THIS is why it MATTERS who writes "worship" songs. At least the heretics admit it---Evangelicals don't.

From the "Christian" Post:

"Songs are like poo," Ligertwood told Vous Church Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. after he praised her famous worship song "Hosanna" and asked where the ideas for her worship song come from.

"Whatever you feed yourself, is what's going to come out. You could say life is like that," she described. "Scripture is the answer to that. I love to read, I love the Bible, I have a bad back because of it."

Ligertwood explained that meditating and chewing on Scripture is what keeps her focused on the right lyrics to put together.

Adding, "Songs are not only like poo, but songs are almost like the ground that's fertilized by the manure of life."

End quote.
Her pastor went on to say:
"We do put more effort into the theology of our songs than we ever have before for that very reason (of being able to reach into the hearts of people around the world)," he said. "So we have people specifically who, every single song has to fit through a system of being tested by theologians." - Heretic Brian Houston of Hillsong church.

For info on WOF Houston and his church empire-movement go here , here, and here (I can't endorse all the links there, however it gives info for further research). False teacher and former "pastor" Christine Caine (now gone solo) has been joined with Beth Moore (selfies anyone?) and John Piper at conferences.

Socialism & Responsibility

“You cannot subsidize irresponsibility and expect people to become more responsible.”
- Thomas Sowell

This is why Scripture teaches against socialism. God demands man be responsible for himself and said if you aren't willing to work, you don't get to eat. Man is to work with his own hands so he can provide for his family and the needy (true needy) especially in the local church.

The Evangelical Machine Is Increasingly Run By Marxists And Marxism Is No Friend To Biblical Christianity

The Evangelical Machine is increasingly socialist (social justice warriors, pro-LBGTQ, anti-Trump/Pence, pro-Black Liberation Theology) (SBC, TGC, T4G, PCA) & socialism hates biblical Xianity. Where do you think these Evangelicals are headed? They want to shut down biblical Xians & their churches b/c they want to shut down the Bible & It's Author, like the Pharisees.

Al Mohler was influenced by Alasdair  McIntyre a Marxist, in college, as was RodDrehre, the author of “The Benedict Option” whom Mohler promotes.
I was assigned Alasdair MacIntyre’sAfter Virtue when I was a graduate student, and I think it’s probably one of the two
or three books to which I return most often.
Tim Keller
In college he was‘heavily influenced by the neo-Marxist critical theory of the Frankfurt
School’. He writes: ‘In 1968, this was heady stuff. The social activism was particularly attractive, and the critique of American bourgeoisie society was compelling…’[3] He admits that he ‘was emotionally’ drawn to the social activism of the neo-Marxists. ‘How could I turn back to the kind of orthodox Christianity that supported segregation in the South and apartheid in South Africa?’ [4]
In response to the question: Is God on the Side of the Poor? He writes: ‘This
emphasis in theBible has led some, like Latin American theologian Gustavo
Gutierrez, to speak of God’s ‘preferential option for the poor.’[13] But Keller
does not tell his readers that Gutierrez is a Dominican priest, who is regarded
as the father of Liberation Theology.”
Rick Warren uses Marxism in his Hegelian Dialectic argumentation and promotion of socialism.

In Acts we see the persecution of real Xians. It was first by the religious establishment--the one that used the current Roman government to try & silence Christ Jesus the Lord. That's what we're about to see w/ today's Marxist Evangelical establishment (Evangelical Mafia) unleashed.

First it started with mocking when they heard the Gospel and the deeds of God through men who spoke in their languages without having learned their languages: Act 2:12 And they all continued in amazement and great perplexity, saying to one another, "What does this mean?" Act 2:13 But others were mocking and saying, "They are full of sweet wine."

Then it increased to being disturbed and jailing them:

Act 4:1 And as they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple guard, and the Sadducees, came upon them, Act 4:2 being greatly disturbed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. Act 4:3 And they laid hands on them, and put them in jail until the next day, for it was already evening.

The religious leaders followed up their trial of Peter and John by restricting their speech and then threats (notice that at this point they feared the people so they restricted themselves--for a time):

Act 4:17  "But in order that it may not spread any further among the people, let us warn them to speak no more to any man in this name." 
Act 4:18  And when they had summoned them, they commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. 
Act 4:19 But Peter and John answered and said to them, "Whether it is right in the sight of God to give heed to you rather than to God, you be the judge; Act 4:20 for we cannot stop speaking what we have seen and heard." Act 4:21 And when they had threatened them further, they let them go (finding no basis on which they might punish them) on account of the people, because they were all glorifying God for what had happened;

Then came the beatings: 

Act 5:40 And they took his advice; and after calling the apostles in, they flogged them and ordered them to speak no more in the name of Jesus, and then released them. Act 5:41 So they went on their way from the presence of the Council, rejoicing that they had been considered worthy to suffer shame for His name.

Following that, when Stephen evangelized we see an increase of persecution including the religious experts trying to argue with him, the stirring up the crowds and finding men willing to be false witnesses and then the murder of Stephen in Acts 6-7.

Marxism is opposed to biblical Truth. It is godless, idolizes the government and is corrupt. It's leaders have oppressed, starved and murdered millions of people over the years. While promising equality and justice, it is anything but.

A Biblical Christian Sees The Hand Of Our Sovereign God In All Things

“Take the case of Job. When loss after loss came his way what did he do? Bemoan his "bad luck"? Curse the robbers? Murmur against God? No; he bowed before Him in worship. Ah! dear reader, there is no real rest for your poor heart until you learn to see the hand of God in everything. But for that, faith must be in constant exercise. And what is faith? A blind credulity? A fatalistic acquiescence? No, far from it. Faith is a resting on the sure Word of the living God, and therefore says "We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose" (Rom. 8:28); and therefore faith will give thanks "always for all things." Operative faith will "Rejoice in the Lord alway" (Phil. 4:4).
~ Arthur Pink 1918

Today's Celebrity Evangelical Leaders Are False Teachers: here's why

2Pe 2:1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.

What did they teach falsely about and thus proved to deny the lordship of the Lord they claimed?

Genesis: Noah, the Flood, the establishment of the rainbow's righteous sign, the sexual deviancy of Sodom, Gormorrah and the surrounding cities.

Their Evangelical progeny today don't respond the way righteous Lot did, to such unnatural desires (corrupt DESIRES of the flesh" as v. 10 states) of sodomy:

2Pe 2:7 and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men
2Pe 2:8 (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day with their lawless deeds),

Today they not only tolerate sodomy, they redefine it's sinfulness as a sin "common to man", which it isn't. They aren't tortured in their souls because of the heinous wicked desires and it's behavior.

2Pe 2:9 then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment,
2Pe 2:10 and especially those who indulge the flesh in its corrupt DESIRES and DESPISE authority. Daring, self-willed, they do not tremble when they revile angelic majesties,

Such heresies as tolerance and redefining of the desires of sodomy which God says is unnatural and corrupt; denial of the sound doctrine of Creation, Total Depravity, the Flood, the Fall, the historicity of Genesis, are evident in their fruit: immorality, impurity, sensuality, enmity, strife, jealous, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, and factions (Gal. 5:19-20). Notice, too that Peter and Paul shows the distinction between the godly and the righteous versus the ungodly and the unprincipled. There's no gray area here, no multiple qualifications, no appeal to motives of love and social justice. To see what they are doing, go here, here, here, and here.
