    Revolution: The Call to Holy War by Dr. Brown: This book is not a call for the violent overthrow of the government, nor is it a call to take up arms, nor is it a call to political activism in and of itself. It is a call to something far more extreme, a call to live out the gospel…

     

    How Saved Are We? by Dr. Brown:  This unsettling book challenges us to ask ourselves what kind of born-again experience we have had if it calls for almost no personal sacrifice, produces virtually no separation from the world, and breeds practically no hatred of sin.

      Dr. Brown, I think it’s absolutely unjust for you to be on the same list with those other people that you mentioned.  It’s one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard.  God has given you great strength to smile at this with an understanding that those who stand for our Lord will truly be hated.  I’ve never heard anything so ridiculous.

      Dr. Brown, I was wondering if you believe in theistic evolution or supernatural creation? I understand there is a lot of evidence for evolution, but that seems to contradict the Genesis account. I honestly don’t which I should believe. I want to believe in supernatural creation, but its hard when everybody is always shouting evolution is a fact.

      Dr. Brown,

      I have read your material and listened to you from well before your radio show came into existence. While I realize that your teaching is grounded in the objectivity of the Word, it seems that in earlier days your teaching put great emphasis on a personal subjective experience with the Lord. I have heard you say many times that the Lord led you to move in this direction or that direction, or to teach on one thing or another. As I listened to your talk “Be not ignorant of this mystery” some questions came to mind.

      We have great men of God who were used mightily and changed the course of history. They taught powerfully and moved nations and presumably had rich prayer lives with a personal relationship with the Lord. Yet these same men made tragic errors. You have pointed out that Martin Luther may well have laid the foundation for part of the Nazi anti-Semitic campaign. You have cited other church leaders who on the one hand advanced the kingdom of God and yet also were anti-Semitic.
      So here is my question to you as one who is comfortable hearing from the Lord; where was God when these men went astray? Why in their moments of prayer did He not speak truth into them? In your book “Our Hands are Stained with Blood”, it is my recollection that you talk about a pastor that spent time on his face before the Lord and came away with the notion that God was finished with the Jews. His experience with the Lord was in error. What does this mean in terms of the confidence we as individuals can have in our subjective experience of the Lord?

      In a similar vein let me ask why subjective experience with the Lord doesn’t draw some men to Christ. I have also been told of Muslims that have had visions or heard from the Lord and based on such experiences have abandoned their previously fiercely held beliefs to become Christians. Now I contrast such stories with the lives of some of the Rabbi’s you have debated and grown to care for deeply. These are men of great dedication to God, men of rich prayer lives. Yet in their subjective experiences with the Lord, your debating partners have not heard God pointing them to Jesus as Messiah. Instead, they seem to be as deeply entrenched in their traditional Jewish beliefs as ever, in some cases being best termed anti-missionaries. Is their subjective experience with the Lord what pushed them toward being anti-missionaries? Have these prayerful men “heard” from the Lord so as to attack Christianity? Would it not cause shaking in the Jewish community if such anti-missionaries who were not persuaded by logic and evidence were turned to Jesus by the Lord Himself during prayer?
      It seems to me the subjective can be a slippery slope which is fraught with contradictory experience, which leads to the obvious conclusion that at least some subjective experiences are wrong…and if some are wrong, might not all be suspect?

      S.J.,
      In reviewing some previous blogs (these threads move fast) I came across your unanswered question.
      It seems that part of the solution might have to do with the “traditions of men”. Growing up in the Old South, the Southern Baptists (GOD bless ‘em) were still steeped in freemasonry aligned with kkk ties; deep-seated segregation, and other “plantation stronghold” concepts that had a few verses of support, but certainly not the Heart of the Gospel. Very near my hometown is the Reformed Theological Seminary, and one of the preacher/leaders who was influential in the recent anti-semitic crusade in Bethlehem. So I know whereof you speak.
      My seer friend has been trying to fulfill his GOD-given mandate to bring “unity of the body (in the bonds of peace)” in the area for nearly a couple of decades; yet recently I told him that I could worship Jesus with them, but when it came to doctrinal issues, we were very far apart.
      We presently live in Western NC, another entrenched Bible-belt area where it seems some think we must be from Mars simply for being Messianic Christians. So the ‘missionary’ effort is part of the key to unlocking these prison doors; wanting fellowship amidst much misunderstanding; tryng to stand firm against the pressure of the old guard ways; wondering why “one or two from a city” long for Zion.
      In Him, Ron M.
