The Devil Flees Florida (Again)…And His Wife!

So Todd “The Tool of Satan”  Bentley is fleeing Florida…again. This time, he’s taken the demonic road show overseas:

Leaving Lakeland

The Florida Outpouring revival concerned Pentecostal leaders.

Cary McMullen, The Ledger of Lakeland – posted 8/12/2008 10:13AM

Canadian evangelist Todd Bentley has announced that he will leave the Florida Outpouring revival meetings in Lakeland on August 23 to conduct revivals overseas. But some local Pentecostal leaders, as well as some national ones, won’t be sad to see him go, and have been wary of giving approval to the meetings since they began in April.

As a side note, take a look at the mind of a typical Bentley follower (my emphasis in bold):

Bob and Hilkka Mounder traveled from Sheffield, England, to attend the revival. “Todd is rather special to us. We’ve really experienced God’s presence at his meetings,” Bob Mounder said. “I’m 20 years older, I know lots more about the Bible than he does, yet there’s something about him. He’s got something I haven’t got.”

You got that right, Bob – it’s called demonic possession. But don’t loose heart, you’ll get it if you keep following Todd “The Tool” around. The rest of the article disputes all of the alleged healings and resurrections that have been claimed, so there’s nothing new on that front.

It also appears that Todd’s is leaving his wife:

Separation May End Bentley’s Lakeland Appearances

Todd Bentley, the evangelist who has led the Florida Outpouring revival here in Lakeland since April 2, has filed for separation from his wife and might not return to the revival, according to his former local spokesperson, Lynne Breidenbach. She said Bentley made the announcement to his staff this afternoon. Bentley and his wife, Shonnah, have two daughters and a son and are Canadian citizens. Under Canadian law, separation is a first step in divorce proceedings and takes nine months. Bentley and his wife have been in marriage counseling for several months, Breidenbach said. She called the situation “very sad” but insisted it “doesn’t invalidate what Todd did” at the revival.

You know the drill – click on the titles to read the articles in entirety. I don’t know if Todd thinks that “Emma the angel” can do a better job than his wife, or if his wife got tired of seeing demonic manifestations on stage AND at home. I don’t endorse divorce, but I think there may be some merit to this one:

Matthew 19:8-10 (New International Version)

 8Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning.

9I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery.”  

10The disciples said to him, “If this is the situation between a husband and wife, it is better not to marry.”

I guess Mrs. “Tool of Satan” can claim that Todd was unfaithful to her by clinging to Emma and all of the other apparitions from his twisted mind. I’m sure she’s agreeing with the disciples that in this case…“it is better not to marry”.

The Demon Flees Florida…For Now

***hat tip to Alan at Real Christianity & Independent Conservative***

According to the Canadian blog Bene Dictions Blogs On, it looks like Todd “the tool of Satan” Bentley has fled Florida for a while.

Of course he’ll say that he’s “taking a break”, but the reality is that he’s scooped up the money that the deceived were throwing at his feet and he’s grown tired of defending his transparent false revival that has yet to produce any verifiable evidence of true healing.

Now more and more “mainstream media” are starting to cock an eyebrow at this demonic charlatan:

What will it take for the sheep to see that this guy is a demonic imp – horns sprouting out from his bald tattooed head?

Like I Said…Todd Bentley Is Demonic!

“Many tender-minded Christians fear to sin against love by daring to inquire into anything that comes wearing the cloak of Christianity and breathing the name of Jesus. They dare not examine the credentials of the latest prophet to hit their town lest they be guilty of rejecting something which may be of God. They timidly remember how the Pharisees refused to accept Christ when He came, and they do not want to be caught in the same snare, so they either reserve judgment or shut their eyes and accept everything without question. This is supposed to indicate a high degree of spirituality. But in sober fact it indicates no such thing. It may indeed be evidence of the absence of the Holy Spirit. – AW Tozer

The quote above from noted theologian AW Tozer succinctly describes the unfortunate posture of Christianity today. In the Apostle John’s epistle recalling the fundamentals of our faith (or calling for a return to the basics of Christianity), he wrote:

1 John 4:1-2 (New American Standard Bible)

1(A)Beloved, do not believe every (B)spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because (C)many false prophets have gone out into the world.

 2By this you know the Spirit of God: (D)every spirit that (E)confesses that (F)Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God;

Unfortunately, many Christians (and those who erroneously think that they are Christians) simply apply the “if it makes me tingle, then it must be the Holy Spirit” model of interpretation when dealing with these demonic charlatans and their revivals see-through shows.

My post yesterday on Todd “the tool of Satan” Bentley pretty much summed up my assessment of Bentley’s ascension from demonic imp to full blown tool of Satan/pulpit pimp. I (along with the entire Christian blogosphere that actually reads and believes the bible) have exposed Todd “the tool of Satan” for some time now, so if you choose to follow him at this point then it is with full knowledge that he IS NOT operating under the authority of the Holy Spirit.

Yet, it’s still good to see more sound biblical study used to refute Todd “the tool of Satan” for those of you who may still be on the fence. Pastor S.E. Ray over at Eternal Path for Seekers of Truth wrote an excellent in-depth article on Bentley – restating some of the fact we’ve already discovered, as well as exposing other interesting facts about “the tool”:

As background information, Todd Bentley is relatively a new Christian with no formal training or experience in the exposition of scripture. His history which includes drugs, criminal activities and he belonged to a sexual molestation activist ring which is well documented and admitted by Todd. Christians realize that a soul can be saved from these things, however he personally claims that he was demon possessed after having been born-again, which poses a problem considering his self-acclaimed position.

So, if you STILL choose to believe a tattooed (after he was saved), demon possessed (afterhe was saved), child molester who assaults people who want his anointing” demonic touch and scares children who DON”T WANT him to touch them, then there’s nothing more to be said to you. 

Like I said…TODD “THE TOOL OF SATAN” BENTLEY IS DEMONIC!

Our hope can ONLY be found in God through Jesus Christ – and his unchanging Word.
