Rebecca Brown MD

Hi guys,

A long long time ago I read a book while I was in school called "he came to set the captives free" by rebecca brown.

It was a book of a supposedly true story of a women deeply involved in satanism. I am well aware of such groups and tthat they definitely exist.

But my question is this: does anyone feel this particular narration of events to be true? ...I only ask this coz it appears there are many who feel this is a hoax..

if anyone know about this person or book....pls give your thoughts

tx

ps: nothing important....was thinking about getting the book again (as i lost my first copy)....but not sure if i should or not

I had a couple of her books early in my Christianity, but after my personal experiences with witches and such, I'm not sure what information she used to put them together.

Personally, I don't think she writes from a true personal experience viewpoint, and half the stuff she does talk about seems to be her handling situations in her own strength instead of by The Spirit.

Her stories of demon exorcism just don't align with scripture. She seemed to be trying to pull them out of a person one by one, but that is not what Jesus did and taught, He bound the strongman and yank him and the rest all out at once.

Her books were pretty far out there, and I did not find very much, if anything at all, in them to utilize in my Christian walk. She may be a sincere person, but just gauging things off of scripture, her events she depicts don't agree with it.

Her story has been debunked, it was found to have many factual inaccuracies

As someone who walked the path she claims to know so much about, IMO, its aload of bunk

I used to have her books too,
I don't give them much credibility any more . I think they have a spirit of fear attached to them. I 've been in deliverance ministries , and think if what happened to her really did happen , than she didn't know her authority or position in Christ.
I think she used the same "poetic licence" that Mike Warnke used , meaning if any of it was true , it was exaggerated to the 'enth degree. Pick up Neil Anderson's books, they are alot more balanced , and will teach you your position and authority in Christ.

Thanks for the input...yeah it sure did make an interesting read when i read some years back but if it is just fiction then not interested.
Dave, I see what you are saying...thx
thx for the links wizeone - you feel these guys are right tho? Anyway will have a read..

Shawners...never heard of Neil Anderson...just went to his website...looks interesting...was he involved in the occult or he outlines strategies for deliverance ministries? Anyway will check it out...

On the side: I really gotta learn how to use this "multi-quote" feature someday (the odd thing is I'm in tech!) heh...aah well

thx guys....God bless!

oh one more thing for Shawners....why do you think they have a spirit of fear attached to them? if this is not of God...would you say its of the devil and to "stay away" ?

When you read it , she gives to much power to satan. She struggled ministering deliverence in way that you shouldn't have to. Even her prayer for God to strike her dead if she ever sins , or the angel of the Lord that was gonna strike her dead over something ...,... I'm sorry but thats not how our God works. I know to many Christians that read her books , and afterwards where freaked that satan could do that , and would credit satan with more power than he desirves.They would read satanic attacks into everything, even to cover their own sins. I read her books early on in my Christian walk , after getting involved in deliverance ministry I realized how off she was. At the time those books came out , it seems the christian world was caught up in the "muiltible personality disorders" because of ritualistic abuse belief. Yes I believe that has happened , but not to the extreme people believed back then.
.........................In Christ , Shawners

5.1 Supporting Rebecca Brown
5.2 Critical of Rebecca Brown



[edit] Rebecca Brown M.D.
(born Ruth Irene Bailey in Shelbyville, Indiana on May 21, 1948), a controversial Christian doctor who was reportedly involved in helping people escape the occult in California and elsewhere throughout the world. Brown later had her medical license revoked [for improper diagnosis and over medication. She is known among Fundamentalist Christians for her undying dedication to promoting a campaign against Satan and what he represents and for advocating a completely devoted life to the Lord Jesus Christ. According to her any others, there is existence of Satanic recruitment camps throughout the world which train future Satanists and Witches.


[edit] Jack Chick
Rebecca Brown and Elaine decided to come forward with what they had experienced to Jack Chick, owner of Chick Publications, who published their claims in two cassette tapes Closet Witches 1 and Closet Witches 2 and in two books He Came To Set The Captives Free (1986) and Prepare for War (1987). Rebecca Brown's stories were the basis for the Chick tract The Poor Little Witch, which portrayed witches recruiting school children into Satanism and infiltrating Christian churches in order to buy off ministers with bribes. [1]

Chick and Brown later decided to end their business relationship after her medical license was revoked. Brown's books were reprinted by Whitaker House in 1992. Jack Chick still defends Rebecca Brown and believes her books are truthful. Many Christians have claimed to have been helped by these books although there are also many who doubt the validity of them. [2]

Her other books are Standing On The Rock, Unbroken Curses and Becoming A Vessel of Honor. Rebecca Brown currently leads a Christian group called Harvest Warriors with her husband Rev. Daniel Yoder. Brown has written a handful of books based on her experiences. Two noteworthy ones are Prepare for War and He Came to Set the Captives Free.


[edit] Elaine
An important associate of Brown's is an alleged ex-Satanist known as Elaine, who Brown claims in her book He Came to Set the Captives Free to have converted to Christianity. Elaine's surname is not mentioned in any of Rebecca Brown's books. Elaine is also the source of many of Rebecca Brown's claims. Among the two women's claims are that Yoga is Satanic, Roman Catholicism is Witchcraft, that Satanists work very closely with the Freemasons and the Roman Catholic Church, tha Brown and Elaine converted about a thousand Satanists, that Dungeons & Dragons and other role-playing games are Satanic, and speaking in tongues and divine healing cannot always be trusted. Elaine has also claimed to have been a Satanic High Priestess and married the Devil himself.

Elaine and Dr. Bailey/Brown were long-time roommates and were still living together at the time her first two books were published. [3] Rumours of their lesbian relationship during this time have never been substantiated.

[edit] Controversy
In 1984, Bailey's medical license was revoked by the issuing state of Indiana. The licensing board ruled that on numerous occasions she had "knowingly and intentionally misdiagnosed her patients", blaming their illnesses on "demons, devils, and evil spirits"; a board-appointed psychiatrist diagnosed her as suffering from "acute personality disorders including demonic delusions and/or paranoid schizophrenia". The board also found that she had over-medicated her patients, failed to properly document their treatment, and injected herself with Demerol "on an hourly basis".[4][5]

The 1984 medical board findings from the state of Indiana identified Elaine as Edna Elaine Moses (aka Elaine Moses, aka Elaine Bailey), one of Dr. Bailey's patients, and charged that Bailey had misdiagnosed her with leukemia and inappropriately treated her with large doses of Demerol and Phenobarbital. Dr. Bailey had also given injections of Demerol to Elaine's 15 year old daughter to treat her for "nausea". The findings also reported that Elaine had to be hospitalized for detoxification of the controlled substances Bailey had given her.
In 1986, Bailey successfully petitioned the California Superior Court to change her name to "Rebecca Brown").[6]

Demons are real, but don't take spiritual advice from anyone who wants to give you a shot of Demerol.
