Rodney Howard-Browne, pastor of The River at Tampa Bay church in Florida, was caught on video telling members of his church to shake hands with people around them, admonishing those who were afraid by calling them pansies.
When I think of the term “snake oil salesman”, I think of end times Charismatic fakers like Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Jessie DuPlantis, and myriad others who ply the “gospel business” for profit. But Rodney Howard-Browne deserves a special place in this category for his jarringly false teacher of ‘Holy Ghost Laughter’ that he learned from Kenneth Hagin. The false doctrine of “holy laughter” is not just a bad teaching or a false teaching, it is one that literally mocks the Holy Spirit, and mocks Jesus Christ.
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.” John 8:44,45 (KJB)
More recently, as in last week, Rodney Howard-Browne was preaching to his congregation and he told them some things that were true, some things that were not, and some things that could literally wind up killing them. Specifically, he told them that the coronavirus cannot hurt them inside the church, a lie, he told them to shake hands and embrace each other, very bad advice, and he said that anyone who “washes their hands” to ward off the coronavirus was a “pansy” and a “sissy”, which is a moronic statement to make.
As I have always told you, the panic around the coronavirus is totally engineered, totally fake, but the coronavirus itself is quite real and real people who catch it are really dying. As you read this, NTEB reader Larry C. and his daughter both have it, for real, pray for them please. Coronavirus is no joke, regardless of its origin. As I told you, I began to self-isolate a week and a half ago when President Trump suggested it, and I am not attending church services in person. You shouldn’t either. But if you do, do not listen to Rodney Howard-Browne, do not shake people’s hands and do not hug them in a public setting. Unless, of course, you want to catch coronavirus.
Lastly, do not listen to the bible twisters who say that Christians have “special protection” because we believe in Jesus, we don’t have any special protection against it. Rightly dividing shows us we are in the Church Age, we walk by faith…signs, miracles and wonders are not for us dispensationally. Christians can get sick and die just like lost people. Wash your hands, stay at home as much as you can, and don’t listen to the Charismatic liars who just want your money. Take a look at the video at the bottom to see what a liar and false teacher this man truly is.

He said that no one should be afraid of all that contact during a global pandemic because the church “has to be the safest place.”
“If you cannot be saved in church, you in serious trouble,” he joked. He assured his followers that his church would only close “when the Rapture is taking place.”
“This Bible school is open because we’re raising up revivalists, not pansies.” Rodney Howard-Browne is a charismatic evangelist and his services are known for “uncontrollable ‘holy laughter,’ shaking with mirth, dancing in the aisles or falling to the ground,” as well as speaking in tongues and the laying of hands. His church has an estimated 1200 to 1300 members. READ MORE
