- RODNEY HOWARD BROWN -
WOLF, CULT LEADER, NARCISSIST, FRAUD?
It has been reported that an arrest warrant has been issued by the sheriff's department, Hillsborough County Florida for RODNEY HOWARD BROWN, a self styled "evangelical-pentecostal", for violating the State of Florida's "Stay at Home" order due to the Coronavirus.
Brown held live services at his Tampa, Florida Church site, defying the State's order to Stay-at-Home. The church’s response was to describe itself as an "essential service" even though houses of worship have not been given that designation.
Howard-Browne held two services, even offering to bus people to the church and at services on March 15th, Howard-Browne encouraged his parishioners to shake hands to show they weren’t afraid of contracting the coronavirus and vowed his church “will never close.”
Howard-Browne has a long history of questionable, controversial and contradictory behavior.
Wikipedia's page on RODNEY HOWARD BROWN offers this information on Howard-Brown:
Rodney Howard-Browne, in the opinion of many Christians and non-Christian's alike, has proven to be a self-centered, attention seeking, reckless narcissist. His latest actions put an exclamation point on his reckless attitude and behavior.
It is the opinion of most, that he has put money and his church income ahead of the physical, emotional and spiritual health and well being of his followers as well as the putting the community-at-large and state of Florida at additional risk by his antics.
Perhaps the best response to Howard-Browne is to abandon him and his religious activities and let it all die on the vine from neglect. Then those who have been exposed to him and his errant teaching can once again have a chance to find life, peace and health through Jesus Christ, His Church and His Gospel.

I want to complete the above "news and opinion article" by stating how Howard-Browne's presentation and practice of Christianity is a false version and dangerous version of the Gospel.
FROM Wikipedia: Howard-Browne’s services are characterized by laying on of hands with worshipers giggling in apparent spiritual drunkenness, speaking in tongues, emitting animal noises, breaking into uncontrollable holy laughter, shaking, dancing in the aisles, or falling to the ground. He refers to himself as "God's bartender" and the "holy ghost bartender".
This is a denigration, perversion and a mockery of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It lead people away from Jesus and into total darkness. Watch this video and you decide.

Howard-Browne is credited with introducing holy laughter to Carpenter's Home Church in Lakeland, Florida during a series of revival services with Karl Strader in 1993. The holy laughter revivals later spread to nearby churches in Melbourne, Titusville, Stuart and Vero Beach, Florida. Howard-Browne is credited with bringing holy laughter to the charismatic Toronto Airport Vineyard Church (soon after expelled by its parent Vineyard Church) at a 1994 revival in Toronto, Canada with evangelist Randy Clark, known as the “Toronto Blessing," and then a year later, to Assemblies of God (AOG) Brownsville Church in Pensacola, Florida with evangelist Steve Hill. The event became known in Christian circles as the Brownsville Revival. - Wikipedia
