This "Christian" thing has been going on since the beginning of April in Lakeland, Florida. It is broadcast on GodTV via the internet. And it's growing. And it's getting scary.
Many Christians are seriously concerned about this so-called revival when it comes to doctrinal teachings, but what I saw tonight online gave me fresh cause for concern. Someone else's comment made me realize that if the secular authorities aren't already watching this situation, they perhaps should be. This is worrying regardless of one's religious beliefs, and look at the people involved. They are zoned right out and not thinking AT ALL anymore.
Here is a video of one of Todd's "anointings". Notice the woman down on the floor being kicked by one of Todd's assistants. There is plenty on the internet regarding Todd's fondness for violence during his ministry.
If you google "Todd Bentley, kick her in the face", you'll come up with many hits about that, plus all the youtube videos you would ever hope not to see.
This Florida Outpouring has been endorsed by the Canadian television Christian program "100 Huntley Street". Todd was interviewed on that show last month. Todd is also endorsed by Christian International Ministries.
Todd now feels he is "at war" with people who oppose what he is doing (cult--"us" vs. "them" attitude):
Todd is claiming that people have been resurrected from the dead as a result of this revival. I'm not sure what the last count is as of this time, but folks affected, including the resurrected, have been invited to send in e-mail accounts of their experience. This link says the count is at 21 resurrected, but that was from June 5.
