As we’ve said many times, Dr. Brown has been criticized for his connection to and defense of Bethel mega-wolves [here] for quite sometime, and rightly so. To show just how bad Bethel has gotten, Anthony Wade of 8:28 Ministries blogged about Shawn Bolz, Bethel’s resident clairvoyant. We learn from Wade that while Bolz is on stage at speaking events, he uses his smart phone to “download” alleged “words of knowledge” about people in the audience (not making this up). Dr. Brown is aware that Bolz has gone off the reservation, yet he continues to defend Bethel mega-wolves, which makes him look the fool.
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” — 1Corinthians 15: 33 (ESV)
Ben Franklin’s Poor Richard’s Almanac is often given credit for the old adage that if you lay down with dogs, you’re going to get fleas. Perhaps the real genesis of this sentiment comes from the above biblical verse. This is not merely a proverb from Solomon about life principles. The Apostle Paul is teaching the new believers in Corinth about the dangers of associating yourself with false teachers. You can have all of the good intentions you want — God does not care about them. You can strive for good morals but who you line up with will direct your moral path more than your desires or intentions. This is why you do not lend your credibility to people who have not earned it and do not deserve it.
