Todd Bentley: Writing his own Bible
In the following video, you will see Todd Bentley, Jeff Hansen, and Jason Hooper commission and ordain a married couple by the name of Michael and Amanda Krysty, who recently finished a Burning Ones internship with Todd Bentley and Fresh Fire Ministries.
What is so odd is that Bentley is commissioning and ordaining them as associates of…..himself….. Todd Bentley. I never knew a person needed to be ordained for that, did you? To clear up any confusion as to what is meant, Bentley explains that as a result of this ordination/commissioning process, the Krystys are coming under his covering.
As is to be expected from anything Bentley and others at Fresh Fire/MorningStar do, there is a lot of twitching and jerking going on. Bentley describes Michael and Amanda Krysty as “true lightning rod revivalists,” and upon hearing this, as if right on cue, Mr. Krysty’s head begins wagging and he begins to twitch.
Bentley starts the ritual by saying, ”Michael….shama…. tell me one word, burning ones.” In response, Mr. Krysty says, “Fire,” and his wife says, “Englightenment.”
Afterwards Bentley says, “Here’s what we’re gonna do, we’re gonna commission them. I’m gonna give them a Holy Ghost charge, and then Jeff, me, Jason, my wife, Jessa, we’re gonna lay hands on them all and just bless ‘em…”
He then says, “We’re gonna go from what I call a commissioning to an ordination.” By this time, there is plenty of wagging and twitching on stage. Bentley continues, “We’re gonna go from the commissioning, Burning Ones class 2010, to the ordination of two associates, revivalists and power evangelists. Clearly the power of God is on them already……”
Now, I want to stop here and say that the next statement Bentley makes is the whole reason I’m taking the time to link up this video and transcribe parts of it. This is what Bentley said……
Todd Bentley says with a chuckle: “And, of course, we don’t do anything decently and in order at Fresh Fire Ministries.” (emphasis mine)
Did you catch that? Did anything come to mind when you read that? Perhaps, maybe, a Bible verse?
Normally I would give you an entire litany of reasons why this statement reveals just one of the many reasons why Bentley does not represent nor teach God’s Word. However, I’ll leave off and just show you what the Bible says. When admonishing the Corinthian church in the proper administration of the spiritual gifts, the apostle Paul said:
1 Corinthians 14:40:
Let all things be done decently and in order.
A literal reading of that verse contradicts Bentley, but more importantly, it’s Bentley who directly and flagrantly contradicts Scripture.
A disturbing facet of false doctrine is the power people give to the deceiver teaching it. As shown, Todd Bentley has such a hypnotic hold on his followers that he can flat out speak the opposite of Scripture, word for word, and get away with it. His followers eat it up, swallow it, and continue to follow him. I can’t help but wonder if any of the people who heard this that night had a check in their heart. Did their mind flip through the pages of Scripture and remember that 1 Corinthians 14:40 says, “Let things be done decently and in order?” If so, how long did it take before they pushed it out of their mind and disregarded it?
As Bentley continues, he speaks over the Krystys and with a big “BAM,” says he is going to send them out as Holy Ghost wrecking machines for Jesus. Don’t bother looking for that in the Bible – you won’t find it there.
Bentley closes by encouraging viewers to pray about having the Krystys in their church and then says, “They’ll be here, rolling around in the floor.” Yes, that’s exactly what I look for in a minister (sarcasm).
This is perverse.
When Jesus commissioned the disciples, He told them He was sending them out to make disciples of all nations. But, what kind of disciples is Todd Bentley making? While he and his friends are rolling around in the floor getting a giant snoot-full of the deceiving spirit which has them bound, many are looking on and watching. Some will see this and be seduced by it. Some will see it and believe this represents all Christians, and thereby be repulsed by Christianity and its message of salvation. But, thank God, there is still a remant in the church who refuse to bow to false doctrine and will steadfastly stand on the Word of Truth in these days of darkness. To them I say, “Continue to fight the good fight of faith!”
See you on the front lines.
