Fresh Fire leader Todd Bentley accused of ‘perverse sexual addiction,’ preying on interns
Stephen Powell, an estranged protégé of controversial evangelist Todd Bentley at Fresh Fire USA, has publicly dismissed his mentor as “not fit for public ministry,” alleging that he has a “perverse sexual addiction” that has driven him to prey on interns.

Citing personal and reported testimony, Powell, who runs Lion of Light Ministries in Pineville, North Carolina, alleged in a lengthy post on Facebook Thursday that Bentley “has an appetite for a variety of sexual sins, including both homosexual and heterosexual activity.” He was not immediately available to respond to The Christian Post's request for further comment on Friday. ...

...as quickly as Bentley could say, "Bam!" the so-called Lakeland Revival imploded. The meetings, broadcast by GOD-TV, were shut down after news that Bentley had been carrying on an extramarital affair with a woman who had served as his family's nanny. He later divorced his wife, Shonnah; married the second woman, Jessa; and moved to North Carolina to be quickly restored to ministry by author Rick Joyner....

I believe all of the comments have rightfully condemned this man. Excellent ❗

John MacArthur has several articles condemning this person's weaknesses and others who have similar ones. He is a charismatic for one thing:

Secondly oh, he's an adulterer who married the person he committed adultery with.

It should have been thrown out of the ministry, right then and there--for good!

"I remember Binny Hinn's wife asking God to perform a holy enema. Amazing."

Hey Frank, yeah, it sure is amazing what these people can get away with doing and saying. Many of them cross over into the outrageous, and like you said, it's amazing how gullible people are. Seems to me that the draw is the emotionalism, along with the showmanship aspect. Who can be the most raw, the most outrageous, claim the most new revelations, be the most convincing, and read people well enough to know who will fall for their nonsense when called up to the stage for a healing, or to be "slain in the spirit", etc.

Tragic stuff, Frank, and no different than Roman Catholics placing their eternal fate in the hands of a mere man; the Pope. These people don't seem to care what God has to say about anything, either.

Woe to the deceivers, but woe to those who follow, and keep them in business as well.

II Peter 3:16
As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

Then I humbly suggest you read the classic "Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds" by Charles Mackay. It's available online.

I really don’t understand how people can be so deceived into following these people! Benny Hinn, Paula White, and others who are not following Christ. I can see how the AntiChrist will be able to deceive many that are not true born again, walking on the Calvary Road , saved by God’s Grace, Christians.

A couple of years ago, he put a blast out on social media, asking his followers to drop some cash into his wife's PayPal account for her birthday..."$10-20/ea, so she can get her hair and nails done", etc.
Just another con man, using God and faith to get, and stay rich.
Good comment Chris and thanks Fred for your information. I remember years ago hearing about the kicking incident. It was when I was researching the “laughing ministry” that was becoming popular in my state. There was also a “gold tooth” ministry around that time. Needless to say all of these are associated with the Charismatic ministry. I can’t believe the unsaved are that gullible, but they are.

Anyway, this fellow is what I would call a hireling on steroids; a crook, thief, charlatan, etc.

I remember Binny Hinn's wife asking God to perform a holy enema. Amazing.

Modern churches have tendencies which IMHO, attract perverts:
1) Christians are encouraged to think well of and trust everybody, not helped by preaching which deemphasizes the depravity and deceitfulness of sin, which leads to:
2) Too much trust of church staff, especially:
3) Pastor personality cults, which discourage accountability.

Like con men, perverts are experts at grooming their marks and know how to gain trust of people.

Thankfully, after the great “apostolic” meeting and commissioning by Peter Wagner and other so called prophets and apostles, of Todd Bentley, and the terrible scandal that was taking place at the same time and was only found out two weeks or later, my church at the time did shut off from that movement completely. It did get affected by other things much later, under a new pastor, but that was some years later, and that was why I left that church with great sadness.

The Todd Bentley and other such “revivals” have caused absolute chaos in the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and it is even worse when these characters are “rehabilitated” and “restored” by other self appointed “prophets”, “apostles”, and pastors, to continue their deception in a new format, a new location and their “ministry” in a new name.

We are to be aware to “test the spirits” as the Apostle John commands us, and that we are to be “sober and vigilant” and the “devil goes about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour”, as the Apostle Peter commands us, and that as the Apostle Paul informs us, the written Word of God, is sufficient for all doctrine. In these last days we must live by these principles, and exhort our brothers and sisters to do the same, so that we are not deceived.

Where on earth do they get these people from.

Babylon and Sodom have taken over these churches.

Prophesy come true....
2Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of."

A long time ago, when I was fully involved with a large Pentecostal Church in a large Midlands city in Britain, I became aware of “revival” meetings in Lakewood, Florida that everyone was raving about.

I had never heard of Todd Bentley, but was very aware of the “Toronto Blessing”, the Laughing Revival with Rodney Howard Browne as well as Pensacola, and disastrous out workings from these movements, and of course activities of people like Benny Hinn, Morris Cerrullo and others.

I quickly investigated the Todd Bentley “Outpouring”, and even watched some of the programmes broadcast on God TV, and was quickly shocked and disturbed.

Thankfully, my church as a whole did not embrace this “revival”, and did not send anyone to any if the British meetings associated with, or directly to Florida, but tragically some individuals in the church were deceived by it.
