As you know, Brian Carn was accused of passing on a STD to a woman. The woman exposed her ordeal and it went viral. However, when the accusation took place, Brian Carn wasn’t present to defend himself. So it’s a “he said, she said” situation and apart from that, the truth will evade us, but not for long. Luke 12:2 has an unbeaten history record.
“For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.”
Sooner or later, sealed records and all will be exposed.
In the interview, Brian Carn didn’t do as we expected, and we shouldn’t be surprised.
When tons of money is to be made and with speaking engagements lined up, you do not want to mess it up by admitting to fornication. Sadly, the only reason why pastors invite this young man to their pulpits is to draw large crowds and pull in a lot of money. It’s not about ministering to people. It’s about the god of money.
All across the country, false prophets and teachers have been duping the people because folk do not know their Bibles.
Read Proverbs 14:15 and you will know why.
In these places, these false prophets are so generic in their delivery of their “word” to people that pastors are allowing the wolf to come right in and eat the sheep in broad daylight. After the service is over, and they count up the money, because the people do not know the Word of God, they are still in their messed up situation that “God” told them they would come out of.
The hype of “praise and worship” sets the atmosphere. A little neck jerking sermon, and the bait is set. All of a sudden, slow emotional music enters the arena, and the people are emotionally exposed. Rapists wish they had it this good because that’s what is taking place in the church. The pastor, and false prophets and teachers they are bringing in the house are raping the people. In broad daylight.
The people are so emotionally exposed that it is no different than smooth talking men that get women into bed. Or it’s the seductive immoral woman that exposes enough skin to attract a sexually immoral preacher, who is a predator to fornicate or adulterate with.
One of the things that I admire about truthful men of God is that they expose themselves and never look to use ambiguity. I believe that measurable transparency is the ability to put on the table truthful facts about their life that helps people live victorious lives.
Measurable transparency includes putting out truthful facts to destroy and put to rest any reasonable doubt, evasiveness, and ambiguity.
So truthful that sometimes, people will need not ask a follow up question.
However, we must refrain from exposing ourselves in such a way that self righteousness, pride and arrogance emerges.
Most people would call it “wearing it on their sleeve.”
In other words, establishing one’s deliverance from Secret Sexual Sins as a “badge of honor.”
There was a time I did just that and fell on my face back into self gratification, commonly called masturbation. All I did was parade around to the world how I delivered myself. I thought I was delivered but hidden in my flesh were tell tale signs of an ulterior motive that needed to be exposed and destroyed.
What were those motives?
To use His deliverance as a cloak to continue in sin to fulfill the lusts of the flesh and mind and…..
to be a person on the stage to be seen by all.
Shenanigans only live to deceive themselves.
You see, false ministry is not real unless you are seen. And when you have a desire to be seen and heard, it is just a show. No one gets truly delivered. They just go away feeling good and sinning as before. Like pastor, like people.
After the Lord death with me, I had to make some serious changes that help protect me from me.
It is very easy to get a swelled head in ministry. As Paul said, “Knowledge puffs up.”
Whenever we appear that we have conquered something is the moment that the test comes. God knows our flesh, but He is the one that helps us to see who we really are and when we have other motives than His, it is just a matter of time before we fall.
In this video, Brian Carn was challenged with a question from Tiffany Morriar. She hosted a radio show that had Brian Carn on and she started with questions on holiness, Then she asked him whether or not he dated. Then she asked questions about what people said about his alleged fornicating.
As we all know that there are people that will malign you, say things that ought not be said, and drag your name in the mud because of the call of God upon your life. However, when point blank questions are asked, it demands point blank answers.
The questioning were with “soft toss” questions. I believe that this approach was effective so as not to present “hostile questions” that might scare Brian Carn to force him to hang up the phone.
But he did something worse.
He evaded the question by appearing to be spiritually aloft and by making the “detractors” appear to be the “enemy.”
In court, when an attorney asks a question and the witness turns on the evasiveness, the attorney asks the judge if he could treat the witness as a “hostile witness.”
When it appears that at one time you are willing to cooperate, and then shut down the cooperation, the attorney then switches the line of questioning to get the witness to state truthful facts. The judge will at times instruct the witness to answer the question or be in contempt of court.
But this was not a trial by jury or judge. This was just fact finding that appeared to be very evasive on the part of Brian Carn.
We need to ask questions to people with respect, and dignity.
However, what about the dignity and respect for God and His Word?
When you hear the answers, there is no question that avoiding the issue is a person’s agenda.
For those of you that are reading, some of you may be saying that you are being judgmental. Of course, you are using Matthew 7:1, but you are isolating the text. Read verses 2 through 5.
The Bible also says “Those that name the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”
You will hear on this video his use of the Scriptures but also you will hear his defense of not hurting anyone that said anything malicious to him or about him. That he would not fight those that “abuse, misuse, or persecute” him.
However, direct questions require direct answers.
While we are on this subject, we must understand that there’s a lot of smooth talking preachers in the pulpit. One minute, they are talking great “swelling words,” and in the same breath, after service, they are sweet talking your clothes off. On the other hand, women need not put themselves in a position to even be by themselves with a “man who claims to preach for God.”
That is, of course, if they are married.
Here is another thing. To avoid the hint or appearance of fornication, get married. The questions will cease as long as a man stays faithful to God and to his wife, and family. The questions will continue as long as you are single. Most men will get married and live fruitful lives, avoiding even the hint of sin, others will commit adultery because they could never control the lusts of the flesh and mind. Some men refuse to marry because they are called to be celibate. But celibacy is not the goal. Holiness is the goal.
True holiness is about never hurting the Lord in sin and ultimately living a life that is pleasing to the Lord.
Other than that, if they call you up to the hotel room after a high time in the conference room of the same hotel, don’t you go up there.”
Sadly, many women will not heed this advice and go to a married or single man of God’s hotel room anyway to get a “word from God.”
Preachers that live in sin and people that live in sin is a stench before God and hypocritical to the world.
The intent of this write up is not to throw mud but to offer a glimpse of why we hold the cards of sin tight to our chest. The misinformation is out there and people will set you up, but on the other hand, what preachers need to do is be candid with their lives. More than ever, the people are being deceived by false teachers and prophets. It doesn’t take much to tell the truth and answer the question. If God is to use us to help people, we must sometimes, bear all and suck up the embarrassment in order for the gospel of Jesus Christ not be blasphemed.
The world already knows that the people and pastors are living scandalous lives. They already know that some of us are the biggest hypocrites the world has ever seen. What the world does is that they question our deliverance. What we need to do is prove them wrong by laying our lives on the table according to Ephesians 5:8-14, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.
To always say, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God,” we always use that as a defensive tool to get the heat off. Few people read the next verse, yet, live it.
“Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”
Fewer people live out Romans chapter 6. Especially the part, Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal (death doomed) bodies.”
People want to know whether we are living according to the Scriptures. If not, we are disqualified as true prophets and teachers.
To avoid disqualification, we must present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God which is our reasonable service.
Rebellious cannot tell rebellion what to do.
Therefore, when you watch this YouTube video, please note that God demands measurable transparency.
Not ambiguity that keeps people guessing.
Below is the YouTube video of the radio broadcast.
Direct questions require a direct answer.
“Let your “Yea be yea and your nay be nay” anything more than these is sin.”
