I'm not trying to say I told you so. I'm saying: I told you so.
What I was trying to communicate is that not only is kicking an old woman in the face to heal her wrong and stupid and unbiblical, it didn't happen. He's a liar and his whole charade was lies upon lies upon more lies.
“Here is some info, but according to what we have heard from several sources, this is much more than just an emotional relationship. According to staff And former staff members, they claim that Todd is a pathological liar. The board privately has said that Todd has been lying to them all along. We are praying for those around Todd to demand for him to get the help he needs before thrusting him back into ministry like they did 2.5 years ago when he had an affair with a different staff member. We are praying for Todd, his family, along with others that have been impacted through this”.
This is not about piling on Bentley. This is about rebuking his staff, his friends, his fans, and his defenders. You got the hero you deserved. You traded the truth for a lie, you cashed in the all-surpassing worth of Jesus for an unrepentant lying adulterer and his lame magic show, and you didn't flinch when the evangelical world warned you it was gonna be a disaster.
I'm saying "I told you so" as a plea to you to stop -- for the love of God! -- idolizing these charlatans and their witchcraft. I say that as a continuationist. This isn't about the charismatic gifts.
It's about truth. It's about The Truth. And Jesus is The Truth.
What we need is a radical re-commitment to zeal for the Christian's sole satisfaction in Christ and His work. Nothing else.
Those who drift into Jesus + ____________ have their reward.
