HILLSONG WORSHIP LEADER ANNOUNCES HIS UPCOMING HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE

When one of Hillsong New York City’s worship leaders announced he is a practicing, unrepentant homosexual, and that he is marrying his fellow church singer and boyfriend, Hillsong leadership says nothing. (UPDATE: The couple’s announcement came in January, eight months ago. Today, less than 24 hours after this story published, finally,Hillsong issues a press release.)

The musician, announced to the world that he proposed to his boyfriend and also told his church leaders about his sexual practices:

“I need to be truthful with everyone. I became truthful with my church. I’m a part of Hillsong NYC. I’m one of their choir directors. I also sing on their Worship team. They’ve been amazing as well. Nothing has changed there now that I’m completely out and with Reed. He sings in the choir as well. I found that being an honest person has actually come with a lot of benefits. People are more sincere with you, and you find out a lot more about other people when you become honest.”

Here’s the proposal at 2:40 shared by PlayBill:

You’ll recall that senior pastor Carl Lentz told CNN this:

“Jesus was in the thick of an era where homosexuality, just like it is today, was widely prevalent. And I’m still waiting for someone to show me the quote where Jesus addressed it on the record in front of people.  You won’t find it because he never did…We have a lot of gay men and women in our church and I pray we always do.”

UPDATE:

Hillsong Church Statement by Senior Pastor Brian Houston:

“I wish to correct reports that Hillsong church has “an openly gay couple directing a choir” at our New York City campus. Hillsong’s position on homosexuality and gay marriage has not changed and is consistent with Scripture. As I have stated previously, I believe the writings of Paul are clear on this subject. Several months ago when one of our choir directors made an unexpected public statement regarding his engagement to a man who sometimes sang in the choir, it was a complete surprise to us as well. It is my understanding that they have not been involved in an active leadership or ministry role since. That said, we still love them and acknowledge that they – like all of us – are on a journey, and our role as a church is to assist them on this journey with grace and compassion.”


It seems to us at Jesus Name News like there are issues on both sides, but this is definitely something that is trending in popular churches and we need to keep an eye on and make sure we continue to stand for the truth of God’s Word!
