    Mine is the Kingdom

    Mine is the Kingdom

    Veteran investigative journalist, and Walkely winner, David Hardaker, talks about his new book, Mine Is the Kingdom, the Rise and Fall of Brian Houston, which has just been released.
    The book details Houston's life as well as the inner workings, and tax breaks, of Hillsong.
    As an outsider without Pentecostal Traumatic Stress Disorder, David's work is thorough, in depth and with minimal personal bias...although he admits developing an unexpected fondness for an aspect of this research and you will be surprised too!

    Into the House Part 2

    Mercy Ministries offered Sarah and Britt y health treatment in a faith based program.
    After arriving, they found it was very different, and that rather than treat their mental health concerns, the enclosed and punitive program made life so much worse.
    Sharing details of the daily lives, ways out and impacts of MM, these two women bring truth into the sun, but not before many years have brought them to this safer place and we are grateful for their voices.
    So come chat!

Truth telling is worth it

This podcast is unflinching. They know the truth and the host and insider guests aren’t afraid to reveal it.
They bravely cast a spotlight into the dark corners of Hillsong teachings and its leaders’ behaviours. Very illuminating.

Hell hath no fury like an ex-Hillsong adherent!

Interesting podcast, in that it exposes Hillsong for what it is/was. Sadly, most of those interviewed don’t really have any understanding of Christianity as established by the person of Jesus Christ, which is completely opposite to Hillsong teaching. Houston and his leadership team/influencers has done so much damage to the name of Jesus, but in fact Hillsong is it’s own religion and it should not be aligned with Christianity. It is, in fact, Hillsong Houstonianism, because adherents worshipped Brian Houston and his teachings, they did not worship the Lord God of the Bible and true Christian belief. The podcast overall is a self-indulgent ramble which it assumes the listener knows each of the “players” so it doesn’t sustain the engagement of those outside of the Hillsong universe.

This makes a difference

While the production quality is sometimes a little sketchy the content of this podcast is honest, real and informative. I have recommended this to my family and friends because this is the truth. Thank you for giving a voice to those who have been silent.
