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.

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”.
