Todd the "Bam"tist?
Todd Bentley has the latest "rivival" going in Lakeland Florida. The video above should make any discerning Christian wince. This is not the first such, "revival," nor will it probably be the last. I went to the "Toronto Blessing" a number of years ago and found it completely contrived. I watch televangelists like Morris Cerullo, Don Stewart and Peter Popoff and wonder how anyone can be easily taken in by such shenanigans. In fact, while I was writing this post, I Googled, "green prayer cloth" and found the Rev (!!!!!) Don Stewart advertising his "Biblical point of contact prayer cloth" (he names as his precedent, Acts 19:11-12) on a Franchise rating site!
Correction: The inclusion of the Don stewart prayer handkerchief on the franchise website was by the owner of the site (see comment below), as a satire (and a clever one, I might add), not by Don Stewart himself or his organization. My apologies to anyone who might have been misled.
