Faith healer Todd Bentley called a fraud, false teacher


Faith healer Todd Bentley called a fraud, false teacher-Baptist Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP)–A new faith healer is making headlines for his claims of supernatural powers, but conservative evangelical leaders warn that Todd Bentley is a fraud and a false teacher.
Bentley, leader of a revival that began in Lakeland, Fla., this spring, is known for his multiple body piercings and tattoos, his violent healing techniques, his claims of angelic visions and “holy” laughter and “holy” vibrating shakes. He even claims to have raised dozens of people from the dead.

In one YouTube video, Bentley, who is Canadian, can be seen kneeing in the stomach a man with stage 4 colon cancer. When the man bent over in obvious pain from the blow, Bentley said, “I had to be obedient to the Lord, sir, but I believe that colon cancer is coming right out of your body now.” In other videos, Bentley explains how he kicked an elderly lady in the face, banged a crippled woman’s legs on a platform “like a baseball bat,” choked a man, “leg-dropped” a pastor, and hit a man so hard it dislodged a tooth — all because God supposedly told him to do so.


Satan is actively using all his seductive resources to brainwash Christians with a view to stifle their most holy faith. Minds are being bombarded by a volley of unbiblical concepts,humanistic philosophies and “every wind of doctrine”, which, for the most part are being
disseminated via television and radio. Unfortunately some of our most prominent preachers and televangelists are unwittingly a part of this bombardment.
This is indeed a critical hour in the history of the Church. The faith of millions of people is on trial. Their faith and their strength depends on the position the spiritual leaders take amidst the avalanche of apostasy. Therefore we cannot watch complacently while warped doctrines are
deceiving the multitudes. Now is the opportunity for all Bible believers to cry out. “Enough is enough!” It is time we aggressively contend for the faith once delivered unto the saints. Travers van der Merwe

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of demons.” I Tim 4:1
