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.

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
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?
