Pastor Clint Brown takes a partner

brown

Pastor Clint Brown of Orlando, FL is a “nationally known” gospel music industry worker featured with Rod Parsley and other televangelist platforms. He’s also been featured in the news as another prosperity pimp who divorced his wife. According to the local ABC affiliate, court records revealed Brown spent $70,000 of church money on women’s clothes his wife and daughter say they never saw.

That being noted, on July 25, Brown will be partnering with Jeff Ferguson to present  what is billed as an “educational event” entitled “You Can Write A Song”.

While we have no problem with people learning how to write songs, we do have a problem with it being presented at a church and with Jeff Ferguson leading it.

Its no secret today’s church is being overrun with double agents who attempt to play both sides of the doctrinal fence at the expense of unsuspecting people. Unfortunately individuals like Ferguson are being dishonest about their associations with the gay christian movement.

Ferguson’s bio is chocked full of Christian luminaries:

As a gospel singer, Jeff has provided the special music/worship for noted speakers including Bishop T.D. Jakes, Rod Parsley, John Bevere, Jerry Savelle, Mike Murdock and Dr. Lawrence Kennedy. Jeff has performed his music from pentecostal campmeetings to a full concert at Robert Schuller’s Crystal Cathedral.

As a songwriter, Jeff’s songs have been recorded hundreds of times by artists including T.D. Jakes, Beverly Crawford, Cece Winans, Clint Brown, Micah Stampley, Vickie Winans, The Crabb Family, Vicki Yohe, The Prestonwood Choir, The Christ Church Choir, The Greenes, Ernie Haase and Signature Sound, Ivan Parker and Dottie Peoples.

But why doesn’t Ferguson mention that he’s also performed at gay christian churches and conferences? Is he ashamed of that or does he fail to mention it because he knows it will cause him to lose money from churches? Why do we allow people to cavort privately with false brethren and false teachers and then come back (with those spirits) pretending to “lead people into the presence of God”? GCM Watch noted that although Ferguson’s schedule is full of dates, he carefully omits location information on his singing engagements.

We noted the same disingenuous behavior with gospel  singer Kirk Talley. And as we discovered with former southern gospel singer Ray Boltz, these singers code their music with their sin. Ironically, Ferguson released an album entitled “No Secrets” which a gay church proudly highlighted. On another album he pens a song entitled “It doesn’t matter who you are”.

The problem is that these so-called music ministers are really money hustlers who take every opportunity to deceive churches for the sake of mammon. Who are they really ministers of if money becomes a motivation in being deceptive?

In August 2008, Ferguson was a guest at White Rock Community Church in Dallas, a gay church which teaches false gay christian theology on homosexuality.  Does Ferguson agree with them that its natural for men to engage in sexual relations with other men (Amos 3:3)? White Rock Church says Paul is wrong in Romans 1:

“The reality is that “unnatural” usually means something you don’t want to do, rather than something that is really UNnatural. It’s unnatural to shave. It’s unnatural to eat popcorn from the microwave. It’s unnatural — isn’t it? — to fly in big metal tanks (I mean, if God wanted us to fly, God would’ve given us wings.) But it sure would be unnatural to give it up now, wouldn’t it? Is it unnatural for a certain number of people in every culture and time to fall in love with members of their own sex? Actually, no.”

In September 2008, Ferguson appeared at the Midwest SpiritQuest Conference, a gathering of homosexuals of the apostolic flavor. The conference is fronted by a church which refuting an article condemning homosexual practice by the United Pentecostal Church claimed (among other things) that homosexuals are forced into homosexuality by churches who won’t accept them as…homosexuals. [source]

In November 1999, Ferguson headlined the fifth anniversary celebration of a homosexual church in Virginia.

You’ll never see any of this on Ferguson’s biography or websites. Why? Because this is part of the deceptive practices of the enemy. But the scriptures clearly admonish to stay away from people who do and approve of such things. Not only should we stay away from them, we should expose them by warning others of their deceptive practices.

You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey him. Don’t participate in the things these people do. For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light! For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true. Carefully determine what pleases the Lord. 11 Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. Ephesians 5:5-11 NLT

Addendum 07.15.09
A very interesting read of a secular reporter’s account[scroll down midway] of his visit to Clint Brown’s church FaithWorld in October 2005.

“No doubt, Clint Brown is one animated speaker. He paces the stage, he screams at the audience, and they scream back. That said, I had trouble figuring out exactly what message Brown wanted to convey. He was, to put it bluntly, all over the place. He talked about the literal seven-day creation, and then skipped to something about God giving him the talent to praise more than to preach, then to women not pursuing men, then to homosexuality being bad, and back to the idea that giving the church money is good. But he is entertaining, and he did end with an altar call that produced a number of raised hands signaling new converts, so all’s well that ends well.

Two lines stick out from Brown’s sermon. The first: “Man and man don’t fit, and if it don’t fit, acquit!” This got huge applause, and though I’m not sure if it technically makes sense, the point is that gays are sinful, based upon the in-hole/out-hole theory of sexuality. The second: “Women, quit running around chasing [men] and let them come to you because you don’t need them.” While some feminists might cheer this line on, in context it was actually a call for chastity and came during a discussion of to what degree men should be leaders of the household. At least I think so; like I said, the sermon was a bit disjointed.”

If Brown really is against homosexuality (although he may not have the moral voice to do so) he should inform Ferguson that partnering with him is off lest he be further spiritually contaminated. Or perhaps he’s changed his views in the last 3 years?

  1. The saddest part………is that some will defend him
    (Clint Brown) by saying that he didn’t know. I’m quite sure he knows how much money he is or is not going to receive.

    It truly is sad because very few still care about the heart of the person they just want the “annointing”.

  2. v11, its interesting these people are always calling themselves and their talents “anointed” but this “anointing” can’t help them stay married, or control their lust for money among other things.
    It was different with Jesus.

    He was anointed and he didnt run afoul of God’s law and still claim he was anointed. Luke 4:18,19

  3. “its interesting these people are always calling themselves and their talents “anointed” but this “anointing” can’t help them stay married, or control their lust for money among other things.”

    Flesh! selfishness! Greed! You see singing realy doesnt take much eeffort for these guys as they are talented and It seems God will still use people and give them time to repent but if you dont get rready to be exposed.

  4. If the Bible tells you to avoid gay-affirming Christians, how do you plan to reach out to them?

    GCMW: That’s not an “if”, the scripture was clear.

  5. phoenixmd…those in Christ know the word they may be denying what it really means but they know they just choose to do what they want to do…read 1 Corinthians 5:9-11…it tells you the difference between the believer and non believer

  6. …..Ok, Gcmwatch. I meant “if” as a conjunction, meaning “given that,” not as a supposition. Semantics aside, you didn’t answer my question. How are you supposed to minister to people whom you are prohibited from interacting with?

  7. The solution is given in scripture cited.

    Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them

    And thanks Cassandra. They know, they choose not to obey.

  8. Cassandra,

    Thanks for the scripture you cited from I Corinthians 5. Paul had a very specific list of people he told us not to be associated with. the sexually immoral part always stands out for us, but he also said not to be associated with slanderers (def. defamatory statement or report), idolaters, drunkards, etc..

    People named in this list who do what they want to do don’t deserve to be helped or reached out to. They deserve just what they get which is God’s judgement and wrath.

  9. Sounds like youre angry and dissatisfied at God and his word. You think you know how to deal with people better than God? How arrogant.
    Instead of your own progay bias, find something in the Word which tell us to do differently than what 1 Cor 5 says. We’ll go from there. You can save any additional opining until you present that.

    We are talking about sexual immorality here so in context, we’re not picking it out, simply addressing the content of the post and blog.

  10. GCMWatch,

    Is it arrogant to agree with what I Corinthians 5 says?

    It is very clear in the bible…we are not to be associated with those people. (you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler)

    I’m only dealing with those types of people according to the scripture, which tells them not to deal with them at all.

    so how you get arrogancy, anger or dissatisfaction out of that is quite puzzling.

  11. I guess my last comment got caught in the spam filter. You asked me to find something in the Word which tell us to do differently than what 1 Cor 5 says,

    Galatians 6:1-3 (NLT)says:

    Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself.Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important.

    and if my agreeement with you about what I Corinthians 5 makes me angry, arrogant and dissatisfied, then what does that make you my brother?

  12. I said that you sounded like… If youre not, then clarify. I read (and deleted) your first comment so please don’t try to play like you are clueless.

    That being said, lets deal with Gal 6:1-3

    This is addressed to “dear” brothers and sisters, not false prophets who intentionally spread division and confusion by teaching others to rebel against God’s word. The word “dear” indicates an submissive heart and disposition.

    Where is it that those in the gay christian movement (ala Jeff Ferguson) have acknowledged that they are “in fault”. The article cited their wicked reaction to THE WORD OF GOD. If they were to acknowledge their sin and fault, then those who are spiritual could indeed extend humble restoration considering ourselves.

    None of us have the right to sin and then justify our sin as the gcm does when shown clearly what the scriptures say.

    You cant restore someone who contends they are right despite living opposite the scriptures.

    Paul explained dealing with those [brothers and sisters] too proud and arrogant to acknowledge their sin in 1 Cor 5. Read from verse 1 to get the full story. He commanded them to put the man out of the fellowship until he repented THEN restore him.

    Your error is in that you want to extend something not appropriate until repentance is given. Does God forgive us if we refuse to repent? After we acknowledge our sin to him, he is gracious, merciful, restoring. 1 John 1:9, 2:1

    Thus Gal 6 does not conflict with 1 Cor 5, it simply clarifies as the Word does within itself.

  13. Wow!!! That’s why it is so important to read the word in its totality…it is so very easy to take one verse and make it fit any situation but the word does not contradict itself…it doesn’t…wonderful explanation and to those that asked questions keep asking them…that’s how you learn…if the answer lines up with the word then you can bank on it…

  14. Cassandra,

    If you want to keep learning, you should read Bart Ehrman’s new book “Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don’t Know About Them)”.

  15. GCMWatch,

    You just made Galatians 6:1-3 mean what you wanted it to mean. You told me not to act clueless, but you are clueless about what Paul was saying in Galatians 6. The word “dear” in this passage is used as a greeting or salutation addressing those who he is instructing to restore those brothers who are caught in sin.

    and I don’t see anywhere in the article where Jeff Ferguson or Clint Brown is contending that they are right, nor or they acting arrogant or proud..unless of course you’ve talked to them personally.

    you are quick to point out my errors but are you willing to acknowledge your own?
    What exact fellowship are you putting these people out of?
    God is gracious before and after we repent…..while we were YET sinners…He died. That’s a gracious God.

  16. Hello everyone its amazing how everyone talks about how loving God is and gracious. God is both good and evil. Let us not forget God is just. When we speak of love; love rejoiceth not inquity. To really understand what love is 1 Cor 13 the whole chapter. We speak how Christ is so loving but he is just. God hates a false balance its abomination. To give an example of Christ love. Lets talk about the rich young ruler. The bible states that Christ looked at him and loved him. But what happens next he tells him what thou lackest; he told him the truth.

    We have watered down the gospel so much that the only way people will take it is with a spoonful of sugar. Yet when the gospel is presented in its raw form many marvel as it is some new doctrine. This is nothing new. Fight the good fight

  17. Evelyn, this is for you.

    dear (dir)

    adjective

    1.much loved; beloved
    2.much valued; highly thought of; esteemed: used with a title or name as a polite form of address, as in writing letters Dear Sir
    3.high-priced; costly
    4.earnest; fervent our dearest wish
    Etymology: ME dere < OE deore, precious, costly, beloved, akin to Du duur, Ger teuer
    adverb

    1.with deep affection
    2.at a high cost
    noun

    1.a loved person; darling: often a term of affectionate address
    2.an endearing person; one who arouses gentle affection, tenderness, or gratitude

    To reinterate and remind others of WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS is what we should do, regardless if a local pastor does it or not.

  18. GCMWATCH!

    I have read just about every article, on this site, and because of MOG’s (Men of God) like you and Eld. G. Craige Lewis, my eyes have been opened to the plan of the enemy concerning the saints of the most high God. I wanna encourage you man, cuz almost every time an article is posted, you’ve got to deal with all types of stuff, not to include the people who cuss and make threats. (and I know you are not about to post those) I have began to spread the news of the end times, and the enemy, and just like you, I got haters too…

    Keep doing what you’re doing MOG!
    God Bless

  19. Servant, Agree apart from God being evil, God is not evil but Just and Holy but has the knowledge of both Good and evil. The thing is He gave His creations – angels and Humans free will, in that alone is the ability to do wrong or right.

    1 John 1:5
    This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

    God bless!!!

  20. Job 2:10But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

    Thanks Paul N that is what i meant to say. Praise God for the correction.

  21. God bless you Andre and thank you for the encouragement. Lets all stand firm with God’s word no matter what the tide washes in or which way the wind blows. Telling others the truth about God’s standards has never been a popular occupation. Even when no words are said, hate is incubated. Abel simply went about serving God and offering an excellent sacrifice according to what pleased God, yet Cain despised him and killed him.
    Christ has already informed us that we will be hated because they (the children of the devil) hated him first. And it is part of our burden as followers of Christ.

    Nevertheless, be faithful!

  22. Amen to that Pastor.

    Servant “Iron sharpens Iron”.

    Its the truth that the world hates truth!

    Andre, excellent! we must talk about endtimes, you know it hurts me when Pastors talk about things getting better! where in the word does it say that for believers apart from Heaven? This world is on its way down and that can and will only mean more persecuation for the saints. We will hear more “who are you to tell me”, “you are a bigot”, “you have no right”, “who are you to judge” and all that madness and I do believe there is coming a time in the US when it will be common for Christians to be imprisoned for their faith, escpacially where homosexuality is concerned!

    John 16:33″These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

    This scripture is as much for us now as it was then.

    God bless and keep you all!

  23. How do you know all of this and that it is true?

    GCMW: You need to be more specific if this is to be considered a legitimate question.

  24. How do you get information on Jeff Ferguson and Clint Brown? I have heard of both of them and how is this known to be true? Who are you to know all of this and how do I know this is legitimate. There is so much on the internet and I don’t know if this is true. Just because someone were to sing in a gay church does not mean that they are gay themselves.

  25. Just saw this when I googled Jeff Ferguson. Could it be?? I was real sweet when I asked him a question on facebook earlier and I get deleted from his facebook. I commented on a certain gentleman who he was with and then ask a general question and I get deleted. What is there to hide?

  26. Are you claiming he preaches at gay churches or trying to claim he is that way?

    GCMW: Who is the “he” you are referring to?

  27. I was referring to Jeff Ferguson

    GCMW: Gerald, The evidence we presented is what it is, face value. You make your own deductions based on what was presented in the story. Biblically whether it be scenario 1 or scenario 2, its wrong.

  28. Response to Sandy: you can contact either Clint Brown, Jeff Ferguson or any of the homosexual churches mentioned and confirm for yourself what was reported.

    If there is a denial that any of what was reported in the article, then we’d be happy to deal with that.

    Youre not being asked to believe everything on the internet, but if you want the truth, you can do simple investigation. Unless of course you dont want the truth. But that’s up to you.

  29. Carla you need to be a little more specific in terms of what information you want more of.

    The blue links in the story are the sources and references, click on them to read more information.

  30. towhom it may concern.Jesus sat with sinners all the time and it was always church leaders that object. these man money grubbers ?how about soul winners maybe they go where you will not.maybe they light a candle and you curse the darkness. maybe youre afraid if some one leads them into the light you might have to spend 4 ever with them . Jesus died once and for all and with all due respect that includes homosexuals. the real truth here is what needs to be expose is those that think they can read the hearts of others and have no fear of accusing there brothers . so take youre bow and study to be quiet and quit throwing rocks and look in the mirror . open rebuke is better than hidden love . is it scary for you maybe the evil is you. youre scaring me too .who,s child are you? why dont you tell the truth? your crossing the line here take off your mask.
