Carla at “More Books and Things” put together a nice set of links about Todd Bentley and what is going on in the loony movement in Lakeland Florida.
My opinion is that Bentley is either a con artist, demon possessed or is mentally ill. Take any selection that works for you. This unbelievable bozo even has a angel named Emma? There are no angels named Emma. Angels are always masculine. So believe me Emma is no angel and Bentley is no spokesman for God. This clod is saying that when he got sucked up to heaven God told him we are hindering God from healing us? Just ask Emma of wonderland, she has a magic mushroom that will clear all this up.
I mean, come on you stupid people how loony are you going to get? This tired healing circus has been going on for many decades and everyone but those specially chosen to be gullible knows that this loony mass hypnotism movement is all about taking the cash out of your wallets and the little sound doctrine you once might have had out of your mind.
I am going to be frank. It is really time that some Pentecostals and Charismatics grew up! It is time to quit looking for messages from God in fleshly experiences and to look for what He said in His Word. You people are getting nuttier than the snake handlers.
Your not only hurting your own walk with God you are a stumbling block to unbelievers and to ungrounded Christians. They look at what you people are doing and they say, if that is Christianity I do not want anything to do with it. Well it ain’t Christianity, it is just con artists using Christian words to make fools out of easy marks…suckers.
The Church has always had wolves in sheep’s clothing that will give people with itchy ears what they want to hear. What do you think the Bible is talking about when it warns that this would occur in the last days? It is talking about what you people are doing. You are fulfilling prophecy by running from con artist to con artist to hear a word that is not from the Lord or to put your hope in these fake healers.
People who call themselves Christians but worship men who display themselves as self anointed idols in the place of God are walking on very dangerous ground.
Pastors, you had better start disciplining those in your congregations that are promoting this nonsense or you will be held accountable. Or maybe you also are part of the promotion problem? If you cannot teach biblical Christianity from your pulpit what are you really doing up there? What do you think Jesus will say to you when you helped your flock get fleeced just so you can act like one of the avant-garde big shots?
After decades of being carried about by every strange new doctrine don’t you think it is time you all grow up!
It was two years ago when I heard a local guy named Todd Bentley being interviewed on a radio station. He told how he got ‘sucked up’ like a vacuum and found himself in a huge stadium in heaven. He’s not sure if he was in his body or out of his body, but he was in a huge football field where an army was playing, and the players were angels and demons. Then God told him that He wants to release or unleash angels of healing but he is waiting for us…waiting for the church to work. He said there’s going to be lots of miracles everywhere and an army of Christians, and we need to make room for the anointing.
So what is this all about? I think we are seeing more than just some so called little supposed charismatic revival down in Florida. What alarms me is how many Christians are getting deceived by these so called signs and wonders, and this ‘spirit’ that is camouflaging itself as the Holy Spirit of God and contagiously spreading around the world like a virus. It’s a sign of the times, that people will believe what they want to believe, and so God will give them over to deception.
