Thanks to Bene Diction for sharing this


Bentley in Cwmbran

by Richard on December 5, 2011

Beware the tattooed preacher says the Daily Express, reporting on Todd Bentley’s meetings in South Wales.
Tory MP David Davies, whose Monmouth constituency covers part of Cwmbran, said: “I go to church and respect Christian beliefs, but I am concerned that some of the claims made by Mr Bentley are far fetched and should be treated [...]


Todd Bentley in Wales

by Richard on November 23, 2011

Anyone remember Todd Bentley? About 3 years ago he was making a big noise with his ‘revival’ in Florida and was something of a star on GodTV. His ministry was always controversial, what with visitations from angels and his penchant for delivering a healing touch with a kick or a punch, but it went off [...]


Todd Bentley update

by Richard on October 23, 2009

Bene Diction has the latest on Todd Bentley’s restoration. Be warned that you should only watch the video if you have a strong stomach: you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything more sickeningly self-serving. My guess is that it won’t be long before Mr Bentley returns to our screens.


Todd Bentley comeback?

by Richard on April 20, 2009

Bene Diction reckons that our old friend Todd Bentley is about due to make his comeback, neatly sidestepping the discipline that was supposed to have followed his high-profile troubles.
Just as long as he makes it back onto GodTV. I’ve missed him.


Todd Bentley again

Todd Bentley continues to kick up the dust around the blogosphere.
Bene Diction shares the following disturbing video showing Mr Bentley assaulting someone who is reckoned to have cancer of the colon.

Commenting on the same incident, and responding out of his own experience of sharing with cancer sufferers, Dave Warnock writes
All these people I have [...]


Todd Bentley, Florida & Dudley

by Richard on June 25, 2008

Bartholomew’s Notes on Religion turns our attention back to Todd Bentley and the Florida ‘revival’, revealing that Todd has resolved the vexed issue of the authorship of the Epistle to the Hebrews. We now know that it was, despite what many scholars think, authored by St Paul. How do we now this? Because St Paul [...]


Signs and wonders?

by Richard on June 9, 2008

This is a long video — and it is only part one! — and I certainly don’t endorse all the views in it. It comes from a very conservative Christian group (there should have been a capital ‘V’ there!) expressing doubts about some of what is happening in the charismatic churches. This [...]


Evangelism: telling the good news

by Richard on June 6, 2008

Three stories caught my eye today, all evangelism related.
Bene Diction has all you need to know about my staple late-night entertainment, God TV. If I wasn’t blogging, I’d be watching now. It isn’t as much fun as it used to be, though. When it got to 10:30 at night, I used to be able to [...]


What makes an interesting blogpost?

by Richard on June 4, 2008

Halden is disturbed by the observation that a post of his about Mark Driscoll has become his most viewed ever only two weeks after he wrote it.
However, what I find intriguing is how, in two weeks a post on Mark Driscoll’s lunacy could become the most popular post on my blog. What is it [...]


Todd Bentley again

Our friend Dave Faulkner posts more questions about Todd Bentley, linking to an extraordinary video in which Todd Bentley boasts of kicking an old lady in the face under the orders of God. Yeah, right.


More thoughts on the Florida Revival

Dave Faulkner :: Welcome to Toddworld
A very useful post.


Todd Bentley again

by Richard on May 7, 2008

Bene Diction has a say about Todd Bentley.
Update: Mark Byron share his two penn’orth.


The post I wrote about Todd Bentley the other day has brought in lots of visitors via Google: clearly a lot of people are looking for information about about what is happening in Florida. Equally clearly this is stirring up very strong passions in people. On the one hand, any questioning of what is going [...]


Todd Bentley

by Richard on May 6, 2008

Here’s a video of Todd Bentley talking with Bob Jones and Patricia King. What comes out here sounds more like the dodgier end of the ‘new age’ movement that Biblically-based faith to me, but you make your own mind up.


Todd Bentley

by Richard on May 5, 2008

Fat Prophet and Mark Byron both comment on the ‘Florida revival’ being led by Todd Bentley. The revival meetings are being broadcast on God TV (cheesy music warning!), so I’ve seen a bit of this myself.
Mark avoids ‘taking sides’
I’m mugwumping on the theological merits of this. It’s hard to get objective information; you either have [...]
