Recently Dr. Michael Brown was on James White's program "The Dividing Line" and he took a very clear stand against the heresy that Jesus died and went to hell to be punished by Satan. Good job, Dr. Brown! It was great to hear such a clear proclamation of truth.
“The heretical Word of Faith teaching that Jesus died in Hell... became sin and was born again as a glorified man, that’s a heretical belief that I categorically reject.”
— Dr. Michael Brown on The Dividing Line Jan. 2, 2018
In that same program, Dr. Brown mentioned that he knew nothing about Todd White or what he teaches (we understand that even though he recently spoke at a "One Thing" conference, Dr. Brown wasn't there for Todd's speech). Dr. Brown also mentioned that he's working on a new book about correcting bad teaching in the Charismatic movement, which we applaud.
We want to help Dr. Brown with his new book and sincerely hope it reaches many people with the clear Gospel message of repentance and the forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ.
So here's a video of Todd White clearly teaching the exact heresy that Dr. Brown spoke against. You can also see Todd's mentor Kenneth Copeland yelling out this disturbing false doctrine to a nodding and approving Todd White:
“Jesus goes to Hell-I believe-He went to Hades, He went down and descended into the depths of the earth for three days and He pays for the sin of mankind”
— Todd White
“One! One! One born again human being defeated all of Hell! ALL OF IT!!”
— Kenneth Copeland
In summary, we are glad that Dr. Michael Brown wants to curb false teaching within the Charismatic movement and hope that these examples of contemporary leaders (like Todd White) teaching Word of Faith heresy helps in that cause.
