Bob Jones, Todd Bentley, Rick Joyner, Patricia King, Heidi Baker, Randy Clark, Bill Johnson, Sid Roth, Lou Engle, John & Carol Arnott, Kris Vallotton, Chuck Pierce, Todd White, Benny Hinn, Lance Wallnau, Mike Bickle, Che Ahn, James Goll, Shawn Bolz, Cindy Jacobs… these are people today who have equivalent beliefs and practices (and there are thousands a lot more like them, with millions and millions of followers). There is not a secret conspiracy joining them with each other in a distinct plot to do some horrible factor that is deeply hidden.
These are just people today who have specific theological beliefs that are equivalent and, we at Pirate Christian Media think, incorrect. There are a lot of correct Pentecostals who also think some of these teachings are incorrect (like the Assemblies of God!), so this is not an situation of cessationism versus continuationism as Dr. Brown desires every person to believe. We think these suggestions are not supported by God’s Word, and we think that millions of people today are becoming harmed significantly by these false teachings.
Dr. Michael Brown has produced it clear that he rejects some of the beliefs of this NAR group, like the distinct dominionist beliefs that most of them hold to, and the belief that contemporary day apostles are somehow authoritative like the New Testament Apostles. We are delighted to know exactly where he stands on these challenges.
But in most other matters, it appears that Dr. Michael Brown has a lot in popular with these people today. He desires all of the other connections to be noticed as coincidences. That’s a LOT of coincidences. There could be ten a lot more articles just like this 1 with a lot more and a lot more proof of Dr. Brown’s approval and participation in these NAR teachings.
