Todd Bentley's Violent Ministry
Todd Bentley of Fresh Fire Ministries
Todd Friel of Way of the Master Radio
Is Todd Bentley a false prophet? See for yourself. Matthew 7:15-16: "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits." In lieu of Galatians 5:22-25, how does Mr. Bentley evoke Christianity? If anybody thinks he does, please share your take with me. Don't tell me about his signs and wonders as the devil can deceive many with his too (2 Thessalonians 2).
Todd Bentley talks about kicking old ladies in the face to heal them, choking people to get the demons out of them, beating a ladies leg up and down on the floor to heal her, being possessed by demons himself, among a bunch of other stuff. Does this sound like a work of God to you? Many people are being deceived by this man and he is having large revival meetings in Lakeland, Florida. Do a Google search and you can easily find out a bunch more information about him or do a search on YouTube as well. People need to be aware of what's going on, especially since so many people believe this is a genuine move of God.
The Bible warns of false prophets deceiving people with signs and wonders. This is exactly what's going on. There is no talk of repentance, faith, or any sound theology at all. Where are thr fruits of the spirit being evidenced in his life such as love, joy, peace, kindness, SELF-CONTROL, etc.? This is why it's so important to know our Bible's and to be on the alert for false prophets so we aren't deceived ourselves. Just because someone claims to be a man of God and seems to have signs and wonders doesn't mean they're of God automatically. Supposed signs and wonders doesn't validate someone's ministry. Rather, you MUST look at the fruit and compare it to Scripture, not personal experience.
This video is called, "Todd Bentley's Violent "Ministry" [Full Version] (WOTMR)." Todd Friel of Way of the Master Radio talks about Todd Bentley and why what he says doesn't line up with Scripture(2 Peter 2 among others).
