Say it isn’t so…

Todd Bentley is back

The Shotgun blog announced today that Todd Bentley has re-launched his ministry.  His new website is here.  Complete with a video from Rick Joyner endorsing him.

Here’s the lesson for all you wanna be ministers: live any old way you want to, sin if you want to.  Then just go to Rick Joyner’s compound and enjoy a sabbatical and be re-launched into ministry without ever having to say “I repent”.

Personally, I can’t wait to see how quickly Charisma magazine starts endorsing him again.

Sigh…

The gall of Rick Joyner

Yesterday, Lee Grady of Charisma Magazine, wrote an editorial titled “The Tragic Scandal of Greasy Grace”.   Today, Rick Joyner replied.

Here are my comments I posted at the charismamag.com website:

Dear Joyner,
You sir, are the one who lacks credibility. You stood on stage with Bentley on June 23rd, 2008 along with other false apostles and prophets and not one of you had the discernment to see that Bentley was living in flagrant sin. Drinking excessively in public, ministering in public with his mistress beside him, telling the world he was happily married – showing off his wife and kids then dumping them weeks later. Not ONE of you so-called “apostles” has one whit of discernment.
Todd deliberately stalled the “restoration process” so he could get his divorce and marry his mistress BEFORE he had to do any repenting. That’s just not unintentional sin – it is deliberate and flagrant.
So before you go threatening Grady with your “public accusations” – take a good hard look at yourself.

The unmitigated gall of Rick Joyner has me fuming! Threatening a fellow Christian in public! Joyner said:

I think you owe Todd, myself, Bill, and Jack apologies for your presumptuous judgments. I think they should be as public as this letter was. If not, I feel that I will have to address this publicly, and I don’t think that is in your best interest.

As well, the tired old accusation of being self-righteous should anyone disagree with you – again quoting Joyner:

I am deeply offended that you would call our work “a travesty.” The Lord had far more grace for sinners than for the self-righteous, who He had no grace for at all. I am personally far more concerned for you than for Todd.

Grady wasn’t being self-righteous at all. He was doing what a true prophet of God should do – point out sin in the camp. This time, the sin is located at Fort Mill, SC.
