Noted apologist Dr. Michael Brown has a habit of appealing to the personal relationship he has with false teachers to justify their unbiblical teachings, practices and behaviors, often standing with them in their error. Now Dr. Brown feels the need to try and justify Hillsong New York “pastor” Carl Lentz’s comment on whether or not abortion is a sin. When asked by Joy Bahar of ABC’s “The View” if abortion is a sin, the hip cool shepherd of the sheep’s responded by saying that “God is the judge.” Lentz remarked that he would prefer knowing a person’s name and beliefs before determining whether or not they have sinned.
Churchwatch Central chides Dr. Brown for trying to justify Lentz’s lack of spine when responding to the abortion question:
Michael Brown recently defended Carl Lentz’ recent unjustifiable comments on ‘The View’ over the issue of abortion. Lentz compromised himself discussing the Christian stance of murdering infants in the womb. After being soundly lambasted on social media by fellow Christians, Lentz did not apologize (as most Christians would) – he simply JUSTIFIED his behavior.
