Cripplegate and Tweeters: Why Are You Surprised With Michael Brown's Endorsement of Benny Hinn?

Why would anyone discussing their shock and horror (or mere disappointment) with Michael Brown's endorsement of Benny Hinn,  think that a Word of Faither former leader like Brown would not embrace another heretic since he already embraces heretics Bickle, Bonke, and Engle?

Why were you expecting anything better? He is proud of his Word of Faith leadership role and continues to embrace NAR heretics, even blaspheming the Holy Spirit by saying the  Brownsville Revival was of God . But why would you expect him to not do so?

Of course he's going to embrace yet another heretic. He's already embraced the lot by his own admission on Twitter.

Sorry but I have to say this: DUH you guys. Come on.

Stop expecting a Charismatic to reject heretics.

That would be like Republicans expecting a moderate Democrat to not vote for Obama and then be surprised when he does. I mean, really?

A Charismatic is a Charismatic (especially someone like Brown or John Piper for that matter) and is fundamentally flawed in his or her view of Scripture, God, authority, gifts, ecclessiology, the Gospel, etc. Its a fundamental problem. That's why they easily embrace false teachers because their own low view of Scripture dictates anything is up for grabs---especially if  they think God "could be" working in such circles. They will always give room to them as if they are brothers; to do otherwise would invite the judgment of God upon them  for touching God's anointed (that's how they think).

By trying to give credibility and wide tolerance for the likes of what some imagine to be "moderate" Charismatics, you end up not only surprised when such a person embraces a heretic (why?) but worse have handed him a platform, time, and cover to do more damage.  That's why we can't call such men "moderate" Charismatics because these men (learned men, at that), go and embrace damnable doctrine and teachers. I don't find that honorable, respectable or acceptable. If the tree is bearing bad fruit, then the tree is bad. Get it? You gave Brown and Piper cover--now look at what they are doing: defiantly defending and sharing the pulpit with false teachers, violating 2 John 9-10 and falling into condemnation of v. 11.

Btw, the fact that Michael Brown didn't get thrown out of the TBN studio after the first taping, but stayed for five proves he did not address with holy wrath the utter blasphemy of Benny Hinn.

Wake. Up.

2 John 9-11 really IS in the Bible and it applies to such men like Michael Brown. Why hasn't anyone cited this passage when dealing with Brown and his 5 shows with Benny Hinn?

2Jn 1:9  Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son. 10  If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting;11  for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.
