Part 2 of ABC Interview says Bentley’s Miracles cannot be verified

For those who have been asking, Part 2 of the ABC Nightline interview of Todd Bentley can be viewed here:

Todd Bentley on ABC’s NIGHTLINE

On this clip you can watch the part that says this:

“When asked to present evidence of the healings, Bentley promised to give “Nightline” the names and medical records of three followers who would talk openly about his miracles. He never delivered. Instead, his staff gave “Nightline” a binder filled with what he says are inspiring miracles, but with scant hard evidence. It offered incomplete contact information, a few pages of incomplete medical records, and the doctors’ names were crossed out.

When pressed further, Bentley provided the name of a woman in California who had a large tumor in her uterus that shrank after she saw Bentley.

Her husband, however, told “Nightline” that it could be a coincidence because she was still undergoing medical treatment. He said she was too ill to talk to the media.

The husband did provide some of his wife’s medical records from a clinic in Tijuana, Mexico, where she went for cancer treatment after being turned away by American hospitals. The wife, however, insisted on obscuring the clinic’s name and the names of the doctors.

Not a single claim of Bentley’s healing powers could be independently verified.”

    Subject: False Accusations
    Dear Saints:
    It has come to my attention that David Eells and others have brought false accusations and have put forth false purported “words of wisdom” against me recently. These accusations have been broadcast on the airwaves as well as published by e-mail correspondence. These accusations are false and purely speculative.
    I love the body of Christ and it saddens me deeply to see a brother in the Lord trying to divide the body of Christ in this manner. I have wept profusely over this matter before the Lord. The Lord Jesus has instructed us to love and pray for those that persecute us and that is the model that I follow; I admonish you to do the same.
    This situation was handled in an unbiblical manner. Two or three witnesses are REQUIRED in order for anyone to entertain an accusation against an elder. There are no witnesses to any wrongdoing, and I have committed no wrong.
    I apologize to all the radio listeners on today’s broadcast on Spirit 1. It was hijacked without notice to me and used against me. I continue to walk in obedience to the Lord as I serve God, with my wife, and the ministry team that God has given to me.
    Please pray for David Eells, Bob of Spirit One radio, my wife and I including the ministry team. I pray that Papa God would love on both David and Bob.

    God Bless you,
    Matthew and Kathy Stephen
