Michael Brown Gets Pressed and Pinned on the Salvation of False Prophets- A MUST WATCH

Caleb Corneloup of the excellent iThink Biblically channel was recently given an opportunity that few have: a longer form interview with Dr. Michael Brown where he was able to press him fairly aggressively on some of his more frustrating beliefs, such as how many false prophecies is too many, without Brown instantly shutting down and going on the attack. Corneloup is himself a continuationist, though a far more careful one, which may explain the nature of the conversation.

Years ago, Jim Osman (author of God Doesn’t Whisper) called into Michael Brown’s show and criticized him for platforming the worst of the worst of charismatic ne’er do wells, telling him, “I would say that you have given a lot of shade,(cover) in fact, shade to some of the worst and most egregious charismatics, charlatans, false prophets, and hucksters that the charismatic movement has turned up in recent years, including Sid Roth and Benny Hinn and others just like it.” Brown in turn, attacked Osman and handled the interaction poorly. 

Osman was not wrong, however, and it’s a problem. Brown routinely platforms, partners with, and promotes false prophets and teachers- the worst of the worst. If you call him out on it, his typical argument, which he repeats in this video, is that, in his view, a precondition to being a ‘false prophet’ is a lack of salvation. 

Brown will argue that if people routinely prophesy falsely yet have an orthodox statement of faith, they’re believers and should not be called false prophets. Whereas the bible has a one-and-done approach to false prophets- if they get it wrong, they’re not speaking in God’s name (and in the OT were then summarily executed), Brown has no such understanding.  If asked about specific people like Benny Hinn or other false prophets, Brown will instantly defer to a puddle of ignorance, claiming he’s too busy to research anyone and doesn’t know anything about anything, and then rejoin with an attack, never getting to the heart of the issue. 

This is why Caleb’s video is a real treat. In the video, he presses Brown on whether or not someone who routinely prophecies falsely is even saved, as they are showing they have no fear of the Lord. Brown obfuscates, as is his way, but near the end, under the weight of scrutiny, admits that it would indicate a loss of salvation. 

However, after that admission, he then slips back into his claim that rather than this being evidence of a lack of salvation, it just means they shouldn’t prophesy, and Caleb doesn’t press him on his slippery double-back to his earlier debunked claims, allowing Brown to walk back his previous admissions which he was clearly uncomfortable making. 

Still, well worth the watch:

  1. “…Whereas the bible has a one-and-done approach to false prophets- if they get it wrong, they’re not speaking in God’s name (and in the OT were then summarily executed)…”
    I’d like to point out that the one time I commented here that in Jesus’ time workers of evil and false prophets were executed got me a warning of being banned for inciting violence. Being threatened/banned for making a factual statement is the commie-wannabe stuff of YouTube, Instagram, etc.
