¨Josh Canfield and Reed Kelly are a proudly-out homosexual couple¨. As I read post about gay and lesbians people in church of Hillson. With fear I remember the time when as a teenagers we listened to ¨how great is our God¨. And my mother used to say that something is wrong with that music. The spirit is different. At age of 14 I completely disagree with her.. but now I can not be more agreed.
Hillsong churches are one of biggest in USA, Australia, Ukraine, England. A church of 7 000 people is like a dream to those who are inviting people to God day by day. And guess what? Their church is not big.. 30-50 people. It’s so hard to bring people to clear faith. But when you allow people to continue the style of life they had and only be christian in heart. As Brian Houston a senior pastor of the church Hillsong writes “Hillsong Church welcomes ALL people but does not affirm all lifestyles.¨ about gay couple he says ¨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.”
Pastor also write a statement that they were not involved in church activities. But Josh Canfield says different: “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.“
I do not want to say that there is no christians in this community of Hillsong. I’m writing this post to warm myself to be more attentive to music that I listen or sing. After all.. those who wrote it put into it their spirit. And if it is the spirit that takes me away from my beloved Jesus then why should I support them?
