Todd Bentley Interview

In a very toned down account, an off stage, quieter Todd Bentley again refers to the angelic encounter he had shortly after arriving in Florida where he saw the mantle, like the mantle of Branham, where he was instructed to stay in Florida. Although he didn’t hear anything, and the angel didn’t talk to him, he was instructed to stay. He also says he is not charismatic or Pentecostal, and his message is the same message as Billy Graham’s message. Asked about his tattoos, a lot of his tattoos predate his conversion, he says. He has gotten ‘some art’ after his conversion, but he says he thinks the world needs a different look. As he quickly changes the subject he says that for this generation it’s a different thing. Maybe someone else can listen to this and see if he mentions the name of Jesus during this interview of why he is here, and what the outpouring is about. Somehow I must have missed it.

Meanwhile, back at home…

“There has been only a couple news articles from Canada about Todd Bentley and Florida.
That is not because a self proclaimed prophet is without honour in his own country, it has more to do with the insular nature of his belief system, and the exposure his brand of teaching has had to the wider church. He is known and his teaching rejected by most people of faith in his home province of BC, people who have certainly seen the effects of neo-pentecostalism.”

  1. Wow, I think I counted 5 or was it 4 times he mentioned Jesus. And that, after 12 min of interview.

    “In every meeting I give an opportunity for people to know that Jesus is real.” …

    “Do I want people to know Jesus in a fuller way? Absolutely”…

    “I want them to know Jesus is real and to know him as their personal Lord and Savior”…

    “I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again.”…

    13:20 “It wasn’t long after my salvation(gestures quote signs) or my awakening (gestures) or enlightening at 18yrs old that at 22yrs (snaps fingers) I was in the ministry.”

    What a touching interview.

    A Joel Osteen style interview, dancing all around the signs, wonders, healings, almost name dropping, and back to William Branham.

    But no Gospel.

    Typical Todd Bentley

    So he did then. I missed part of it. Thanks Hesed.

    Isn’t it unusual for a Christian to use the word “enlightening” to describe his salvation experience?

    And you are right, it’s always back to Branham, isn’t it? And angels.

    Please see “A Call for Discernment” by going to http://www.justinpeters.org. Justin is an evangelist and in addition to expository preaching, also holds seminars on the “Word of Faith” movement. He has cerebral palsy and concurs with the apostle Paul, “My grace is sufficient for thee.”

    You can view his brief overview of the misleading Word of Faith movement given at Southwestern Theological Seminary here:

  4. Hello… thanks for posting this. Again, TB is showing his lack of relationship with Jesus by leaving Him out of the conversation. The whole “outpouring” is supposed to bring His Holy Name to every interview, article, and episode on TV. This is NOT about Jesus. It is about the “supernatural” and it is designed by satan to “look right” yet turn us from God by a subtle deception.

    Pray….Pray….and pray some more. People are being led to destruction “in the name of Jesus”.

    See my new post where Todd confuses the issue of the “anointing”. He can’t even get his own false teaching right.

    In Christ,

    Jon

    I would suggest the only reason he mentioned the name of Jesus at all was because of the question put to him by the journalist.

    MM,

    I tend to agree with your suggestion.
