Rank #1: Hillsong, Corporate Christianity, and the Neoliberalization of Jesus (Part 1)

Podcast cover
Read more

What does the Australian ministry, a charismatic Evengalical church, neoliberal tech companies, and the state of late-capitalism all have in common? Yes girls and gays, it’s the beginning of our ongoing mini-series / extensive deep-dive covering the wild and disturbing world of the newly emerging megachurch: Hillsong. Starting as an independent Pentecostal branch off the long-standing Australian institution, Hillsong spread across multiple countries and continents bringing in now over a 100,000 members each week, plus half a million online, watching and engaging in their radical and new-wave form of religious and spiritual practice. From their record-breaking Christian-rock albums to the multiple independent college programs and pricey-stage productions, Hillsong is a vast network of contemporary Instagram-ready entertainment venues veiled under the promises of the Spirit and the Gifts of God. Our series begins with a background and context of their ministries’ inner-workings, plus explanations for how their brand grew to such large numbers, and why their glitzy celebrity connections have brought their beliefs into the American consciousness. We will over the next few weeks roll out the inevitable part two and three, continuing on with our research into who exactly works and funds the church, and the terrifying scandals connected to it, and why celebrities seem unable to talk about it. It’s gonna be a ride, so strap in!

Eating For Free is a bi-weekly gossip podcast reporting from the edge of the internet! We're a new wave of celebrity reporters at a time when pop culture is increasingly chaotic and media lacks the ability or moral direction to make sense of this capitalist nightmare!

What does the Australian ministry, a charismatic Evengalical church, neoliberal tech companies, and the state of late-capitalism all have in common? Yes girls and gays, it’s the end of our ongoing mini-series / extensive deep-dive covering the wild and disturbing world of the newly emerging megachurch: Hillsong. Starting as an independent Pentecostal branch off the long-standing Australian institution, Hillsong spread across multiple countries and continents bringing in now over a 100,000 members each week, plus half a million online, watching and engaging in their radical and new-wave form of religious and spiritual practice. As we finish our investigation, we realize the greater social, political, and economic implications of the prosperity gospel, and how it is now influencing western institutions and governments across the world. We read from two fantastic listener-letters that go into these shocking details, as well as adding context to why churches like these exist in the first place. If you have any information or further research to send along, don’t be afraid to contact us as we’ll be following up on this subject in the near future as more comes out.

Hillsong, Corporate Christianity, and the Neoliberalization of Jesus (Part 4)

Podcast cover

What does the Australian ministry, a charismatic Evengalical church, neoliberal tech companies, and the state of late-capitalism all have in common? Yes girls and gays, it’s the end of our ongoing mini-series / extensive deep-dive covering the wild and disturbing world of the newly emerging megachurch: Hillsong. Starting as an independent Pentecostal branch off the long-standing Australian institution, Hillsong spread across multiple countries and continents bringing in now over a 100,000 members each week, plus half a million online, watching and engaging in their radical and new-wave form of religious and spiritual practice. As we finish our investigation, we realize the greater social, political, and economic implications of the prosperity gospel, and how it is now influencing western institutions and governments across the world. We read from two fantastic listener-letters that go into these shocking details, as well as adding context to why churches like these exist in the first place. If you have any information or further research to send along, don’t be afraid to contact us as we’ll be following up on this subject in the near future as more comes out. It’s been a wild ride, thanks for joining us!
