Lakeland 'Revival' healings

This Post Confirms what we had suspected all along: that the 'healings' at the so-called Florida Healing Revival are highly suspect. This is nothing more than mass-hypnosis and the power of suggestion. Those who are seeking to be miraculously healed in these events and by these men are tragically deluded. It is simply not God's will that all Christians should be healthy and wealthy - just look at the Apostle Paul! Those who say that it is always God's will to heal are, in our opinion, cruel in the extreme.

On Wednesday evening we heard a minister who had to sit down to preach because he recently had part of one lung removed. Does this mean that he is a bad Christian? Quite the reverse! God has promised to go with His people through the fire and the water, but He has also said that we shall pass through the fire and the water.

Now let us all go and read Dr. Warfield's Counterfeit Miracles.

This "revival" has even drawn fire from one of my "classical Pentecostal" friends who sends out an daily email article.

It's a freak show...

Todd Bentley is a showman, pure and simple. He's very talented at it - but that's not ministry.

I got to see this "revival" live on TV while I was in Florida. Bentley was not on the stage, but some other fellow wearing jeans and a black t-shirt that said: "I want some Sheeka-boom-ba!"
