Popular NYC Hillsong pastor, Carl Lentz, has reportedly been terminated from his position as lead pastor for “moral failures.” In a letter sent to the staff of Hillsong NYC and obtained by Religion News Service, Hillsong founder and CEO, Brian Houston expressed regret in his decision to let Lentz go.

The letter did not go into detail, according to RNS, in exactly what these “moral failures” were, however, Houston explained that his actions were not in light of “leadership issues and breaches of trust, plus a recent revelation of moral failures.”

“I know this will come as a shock to you, but please know that this action was not taken lightly and was done in the best interests of everyone, including Pastor Carl,” Houston wrote.

“Please understand that it would not be appropriate for us to go into detail about the events that led to this decision. However you can be assured that this decision was made in order to honor God and pastorally care for you, our East Coast family, Pastor Carl and his family,” Houston continued.

Lentz was recently under fire by Christians after he announced to a CNN host that he may be open to affirming homosexuality at some point.

During an interview with CNN, Lentz was asked if he could see his church changing views in the future since there are so many people who are “turned off” from church because of conservative politics.

“Anything’s possible,” Lentz said, after saying he refuses to endorse political candidates.

While we don’t know the exact reason for Lentz’ termination, we can rest assured that it will come out at some point. Often, when a church leader or pastor is terminated citing “moral failures,” it often involves some sort of sexual immorality.

Lentz, a good friend of Justin Bieber, is well-known for his affinity for worldly things. He wears highly expensive clothing and lives a luxurious lifestyle. In 2017, Lentz and Justin Bieber were caught together in a bar in New Zealand removing their clothing and acting promiscuously while taking liquor shots.

This story is developing.

Below is a copy of the letter sent by Houston to the staff at Hillsong, NYC.
