This article shall be taking a look at an article penned by Dr Michael Brown recently: (http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/in-the-line-of-fire/42402-be-careful-whom-you-damn) and I would like to make comments on some of what Brown has said to his audience.
"It is true that the Scriptures often warn us against deception, and it is true that some preach “another Jesus” (who is not Jesus at all) and “another gospel” (which is no gospel at all; see 2 Cor. 11:1-4; Gal. 1:6-9). And it is true that many false converts will be shocked when Jesus says to them on that great and dreadful Day, “Depart from me” (see Matt. 7:21-23; 25:31-46).
All of us should examine ourselves to be sure that we are “in the faith” (2 Cor. 13:5) and all of us should be diligent to “confirm [our] calling and election” (2 Pet. 1:10), and this does mean falling into performance-based religious exercises but rather living out our calling to be God’s children (see 2 Pet. 1:3-11; this is our response to what God has graciously done for us).
At the same time, we need to be very careful about setting ourselves up as the ultimate judge of who is saved and who is lost--meaning, among those who claim to be followers of the Jesus of the Scriptures."
It's good that he recognises the severity of another gospel but it's more like lip service to be honest with him, Also, It is not a question of being Brown's personal judge and jury, it's judging him and others by a scriptual basis, not on a personal level. People can judge me according to scripture as well.
However, in his article, he talks about people who condemn him for various things, like his belief in the Trinity, Arminianism, his endorsement of Charles Finney and of course the Brownsville Revival.
Now I hold to the Trinity as Biblical and have defended it in many articles. Those who know me know I hold to Arminianism and I strongly condemn Pelagian and Semi-Pelagian belief, such as Finney's (Arminianism is not the same as Semi-Pelagianism and anyone who claims this is ignorant of Arminianism, Ignorant is not an insult) and while I disagree with Calvinists on certain issues, I do consider Calvinists brothers, but not Hyper-Calvinists, just as Arminians are REPELLED by Semi-Pelagian and Pelagian heresy.
I also have expressed concerns about the Brownsville revival to which I see was not a move of God, not to mention both John Kilpatrick and Michael Brown have made false prophecies, although Kilpatrick to the best of my knowledge is a repeat offender, At least Brown has had been man enough to step down from prophectic ministry.
(On a side note, Brown did not make a false prophecy in Brownsville, it was in Jerusalem in 1987/88.)
Dr Brown misses the entire point of why he was condemned, he is been on the air with one of the most notorious apostates on the planet and Hinn has BLATANTLY TAUGHT things such as the health and wealth gospel, as well as the doctrine that Jesus became one in nature with Satan, both HORRIFIC heresies, amongs other things.
I had forgot to mention this in a previous article, but as of now, this ministry is withdrawing support from Michael Brown.
As I have said before, while I may continue responding to Yisroel Blumenthal's "Supplement to Contra Brown" if the Lord Wills, I will not be giving support to Michael Brown's ministry.
