If you’re not familiar with Todd Bentley, then you’re in for a treat.
That is, if treats make you sick to your stomach and embarrassed to be a Christian.
There are plenty of fraudulant faith healers out there, but none as ridiculous, or dangerous, as Bentley.
Now, he’s stirring up controversy across the pond with claims that God told him to kick a woman in the face to heal her.
That’s right, according to Todd Bentley God told him to kick a woman in the face. In Bentley’s world that’s called faith healing. In the real world that’s called assault.
Herald Sun –
A CANADIAN pastor who believes he can heal people by kicking them in the face has ignited controversy in the United Kingdom where a local politician has called for him to be banned from entering the country.
This is Croydon Today website reports that Todd Bentley, 36, of the Fresh Fire Ministries church, says the Holy Spirit often tells him to kick people in the face so he can cure them of illness.
In one video Mr Bentley says, “I was asked why the power of God isn’t moving and I said it’s because I haven’t kicked that woman in the face.
“The Holy Spirit spoke to me, the gift of faith came on me, and said: ‘Kick her in the face. With your biker boot’.
“I inched closer and I went like this (he kicks out forcefully) – Bam!”
“Just as my boot made contact with her nose, she fell under the power of God.”
The Daily Mail reports that Labour MP for Croydon North, Malcolm Wicks, wants Home Secretary Theresa May to stop Mr Bentley entering the UK.
”His visit can do nothing but harm and I would be grateful for any measures you can take,” Mr Wicks told Ms May.
