"That's why I have raised my voice repeatedly in recent months to debunk the myth of NAR: What the critics describe simply doesn't exist." -- DMB


Really. Your own website publishes Mattera who now runs it and Wagner who founded it and defined it. That is not why you have raised your voice. I could buy that if you raised it once or twice but as Resourcefulmanager.com reminds us -- details, details, details are a true sign of a deceitful tongue. Just look at the length of the article Brown put out about this! Me thinks thou dost protest too much sir.

"The truth be told, the reason I and others have taken time to clarify issues is out of love for the body of Christ as a whole. The critics are not my concern. Their attacks fuel my fire and encourage me all the more to stand for what is right. I simply feel bad for them personally and grieve over any confusion they cause in the Church." - DMB

How ironic that Resourcefulmanager.com also discusses how using qualifying language such as "truth be told" was also a sign for sure that the person is lying to you. The truly ironic and sad thing here though is that you believe in the woman who prophelied that she saw a "sneaky squid spirit" sitting on her friends head and then started stalking her but I am the one sowing confusion in the body. Gothcya.


'As for those who think I want to look the other way and ignore abuses, may I remind you that my most recent book, Playing with Holy Fire, is devoted entirely to addressing abuses in our house--meaning, in the Pentecostal-charismatic Church? If you've read the book, you can attest that I pull no punches. You'll also know that I critique some aspects of contemporary "apostolic ministry."' - DMB


Yes but therein lies the disingenuousness. For example, in 2008 the leaders in Wagner's NAR movement, such as Che Ahn John Arnott, and Rick Joyner traveled to Lakeland Florida to anoint Todd Bentley as an apostle. The man who presided over this and prayed over him was Bill Johnson. You know, the same Bill Johnson that you claim has never heard of the NAR. What is hypocritical is you correctly denounce Todd Bentley and the spectacle that occurred that night in Lakeland but you stand by Bill Johnson, who then oversaw Bentley's fake restoration, and insist that Bill Johnson has nothing to do with the NAR. The man who openly preaches dominionism. Who runs a school for teaching the false signs and wonders. C'mon Mike. As for your expose of the Charismatic church it is useless because you refuse to name any names of the wolves who teach the heresies you speak against. That is why you are a gate keeper Dr. Brown.


"My suggestion, then, for those who want to be constructive is this. First, get rid of the extreme rhetoric ("not Christian"; "aberrant movement" and so on). You're slandering your brothers and sisters." -- DMB


Who is my mother and brother except he who does the will of my Father? Wolves are not my brothers and sisters in Christ. Bill Johnson is not. Mike Bickle is not. They are not Christian. Their teachings are aberrant. The truth is neither extreme nor bland. It just is. You keep acting like the wolves are the ones we are called to lead but it is actually the sheep Dr. Brown.

"Second, drop the general term NAR. It's ambiguous at best and misleading at worst and should only be used with reference to the organization once led by Peter Wagner." -- DMB


Which is now run by your pal Joseph Mattera. I do agree that we need to change how we use it so you stop muddying the waters. The issue should be someone who ascribes to NAR theology as opposed to that is an NAR church.

"Third, don't put widely disparate groups under the same heading. That only leads to confusion." -- DMB

Yeah, no one is doing that.


"Fourth, identify the beliefs or practices you question, be sure you rightly understand them from an insider perspective, then respond to them based on Scripture and fruit." - DMB


No sir. You do not get to pull your fatherly corrective dance when you have been debunked and dismissed. Seek the face of God Michael and repent. Stop providing shelter for the fiercest wolves among by calling it unity.

"Fifth, recognize the wonderful things the Spirit is doing around the world today."- DMB


Strawman argument. My response would be to properly discern which are from the Holy Spirit and which are from the devil.
