The Hillsong website reads: Faith, Hope, Love. If they were honest with themselves, it should read: Money, Power, Deception. Seems like a strong statement to make. But on their website, in regards to their conference they say:
“Hillsong Conference is designed to champion the cause of the local church everywhere.”
If they are ‘championing the cause of the local church everywhere’, why are they inviting some evidently CORRUPT ministers to preach at their upcoming Hillsong Conference 2010? Obviously they do not care about their reputation, their vision, or who their God is by the way they have rolled out the carpet to two incredibly foul, corrupt, sooth-saying speakers. This issue MUST be addressed. Hillsong is spreading the contagious corrosive teachings and celebrity wolves to smaller local churches. Hillsong is SICK and are now their spreading sickness further.
These celebrity wolves are speakers TD Jakes and Ed Young.
Under the heading of ‘An Unshakeable Kingdom’ Hillsong has a bit to say on the two. I think we can all remember how shaken Hillsong was when Guglimucci was exposed. This is even worse than Guglimucci because these speakers will not be exposed but get away with their heresies and teachings that are a pure offense to the gospel.
Hillsong says of TD Jakes:

Hillsong says of Ed Young:
Second Time at Hillsong Conference
How could we ever forget the imprint that Pastor Ed Young left on our hearts at Hillsong Conference in 2007. He communicated such Godly wisdom at “a whole nutha level”…
We are so excited to announce that Ed Young will be back with us again in 2010…
Ed Young is a straightforward communicator who uniquely connects God’s unchanging truth with a diverse culture through compelling and creative teaching methods. He is the founding and Senior Pastor of Fellowship Church. The church has its main campus just north of the DFW Airport and operates five satellite campuses in the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area and one campus in Miami, Florida. Ed’s books include The Marriage Mirror, Outrageous, Contagious Joy, In the Zone and The Creative Leader.
Ed is also known for his candor when talking about leadership and the inner workings of a growing church, and he provides resources for church leaders through CreativePastors.com and the Creative Church Conferences (C3).
He and his wife Lisa have been married for twenty-six years and have four children. More information about Ed and his various ministries can be found online at EdYoung.com.
About TD Jakes
TD Jake’ s is from the Oneness Pentecostal Cult. It is NOT a Christian move of God. He is also a liar – In Nov. 17, 2009 on the “Larry King Live” show, he said that he does not believe or preach a ‘prosperity gospel’.
Unfortunately, TD Jakes is a well-known prosperity pimp.
As for his Oneness Pentecostal roots, his belief statement says:
“God -There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”

About Ed Young (Exposed!)
As Lance blogged this last week. Read the articles he pulled together here:
While Ed Young think he may have resolved the problem and is now ‘moving on’, he actually created more of a problem for himself as ‘A Little Leaven’ has pointed out:
“… So, Ed Young’s admissions rather than making his case have instead proven what the News 8 reporter set out to demonstrate, namely that Ed Young’s luxury spending is out of control and not in keeping with a pastor’s salary.”
“A reminder that the apparently “worldly” Chris Rosebrough will be putting even more perspective to this troubling tale on his FftF program today, which airs at 6pm EST.”
Christian Pirate Radio is worth listening too as well on this subject here. He observes that Ed Young possibly likes to be influenced by TD Jakes. I really encourage you to listen to this (I know it’s long), 8o minute expose on Ed Young. If there is a script from this radio expose written, I will post it up. Here is where you can hear the Pirate Christian Radio’s expose on the issue:
Hillsong are cursing the local church by allowing speakers to preach different gospels and teachings for filthy luchre’s sake. They need to be accountable to who they have speak at their conferences. This indeed will be a sad moment when Hillsong allows these deceivers to speak into the lives of the thousands that flock to their conferences.
