God can not be mocked

Todd Bentley's now confirmed resignation, applied for separation from his wife plus all of the other admissions by his leadership that he "has sinned" will undoubtedly fuel "the worlds " scepticism about Christianity in general and "Revival" in particular. Surely this now should heavily underscore the need for discernment,the need for weighing up what these or any "so called prophets " have to say and most imperatively the use of the intellectual critical faculties that believers have been equipped with???. The Church should pray that these "so called " revivals will cease and that the Church will get back to basics with solid teaching and not having ears "tickled" and also the cessation of "exalting" those with dubious claims of revelations and visits to Heaven!!!.However one cautionary note should be sounded for those who were sceptical of his "ministry" ,there shouldn't be a "gloating" over what has occurred ,there should be sorrowing because of how this will tarnish not only the Church but the Name of Christ .

Re: Recent announcements regarding developments in Todd Bentley's personal life....

Over the last few weeks Todd Bentley has been on my mind a lot. I have been upset by the mudslingers - who are these guys, by what authority, where is the prayer / intercession?

I have mumbled in prayer from time to time but no revelation about the things which have come to light. I felt that I wanted to see the guy blessed and built up - in the words of Ephesians 1 v 17/8 etc..

Last week it crossed my mind that Nebuchadnezzar's Dream of a Tree was somehow relevant (Daniel 4 vv 13-17). Interesting phrase 'the lowliest of men' v17 - compare reference to humility and forgiveness in Chris Coles article.

Maybe we never hear of him again publicly, but even if we don't I anticipate the fruit of his future ministry exceeding what has gone before (Daniel 4v36).

Hi Jessica from London .
Thanks for your reply to me and recommendations on 12.7.08. My response is "every major prophetic voice in the USA has confirmed that this is the sovereignty of God". You use the word superficial. This may appear superficial but for so long as we have met as Church, we have listened to "mere words" without the demonstration of the power of God. Barbara

We're recently witnessed numerous people in America making sudden U-turns and saying that Todd and Lakeland were all flakely from the start. I wonder if Chris, Rory, and Wendy will do the same.

Rory and Wendy have made a great error in falling for Todd Bentley. Why can't you see it. Seeing the apostle Paul's little home in heaven ???? What next!! The angel Emma !!!

Do you think it is now time to retract this statement on Todd Bently "Those who love much" How about starting with his wife. An how about the fact that none of the ressurection has been or can be substantiated. The first time I clapped eyes on this guy I had an overwealming feeling that he was abosolutely false

There is a vast difference between being "outside the norm" and some of the totally "abnormal"behavior as displayed by Todd Bentley and his adherents.
Is there any valid Scriptural foundation for much[or any] of the practices shown at these Lakeland meetings??For example "manifestations" ,the well worn routine of repetitive choruses ,chants ,jerking and body movements accompanied by people being "slain in the Spirit" for which there is NO foundation in Scriptures at all,the tattoos which are direct contravention of Scripture,the "Angelic visitations,the "trips" to Heaven .....the list is endless!!!.To repeat my contention in my original posting......where has the Spiritual AND intellectual discernment of the Church evaporated to?????
