Prove It: Todd Bentley Claims 'First Resurrection in Great Awakening' Event

Last week, charlatan Todd Bentley (you know, the man who once claimed that God told him to kick a woman in the face) tweeted the following:

This isn't the first time Bentley has claimed to be responsible for raising the dead. Here is just one other example:

So, this blog would like to extend an invitation to Mr. Bentley: Prove it. Send us the medical report stating that this unborn infant officially was pronounced dead one day and then born alive the next. Put us in contact with the 23-year-old man referenced in the above video who supposedly was brought back to life through his family's possession of some magical 'prayer cloth.' This video was uploaded in 2008, but surely this young man must still eagerly tell his story today. Prove it, Mr. Bentley. And if you cannot, then repent of your false, heretical teaching and turn to the true and living Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of even those sins.

  1. Ow! Snap! Was thinking the same thing - it seems all that 'restoration' really didn't bring about a 'calming down' of Todd's ambitious claims. Yes, I'll be accused of being a 'doubting Thomas' (it won't be the first time, nor the last) - but lets see the proof.


    If there is any.

  2. Todd Bentley's behavior is so freakish and creepy, it's truly amazing that people flock to him looking for help. How desperate and delusional they must be. They might as well go to a witch doctor. That is what his "ministry" is anyway. Carol

  3. I've tried for a long time to understand these quacks who says falsehood in the name of God and I've just decided the best loving thing is to pray that they'll read their Bible as they are without knowledge!

    1. I think the quacks are in it for the money. It's the people who fall for this that I can't understand.

  4. Scripture tells us about both the false teachers and those who follow them:

    But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive opinions. They will even deny the Master who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. Even so, many will follow their licentious ways, and because of these teachers the way of truth will be maligned. And in their greed they will exploit you with deceptive words. Their condemnation, pronounced against them long ago, has not been idle, and their destruction is not asleep. 2 Peter 2:1-3

    For the time is coming when people will not put up with sound doctrine, but having itching ears, they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own desires,and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander away to myths. 2 Timothy 4:3-4

    False teachers are proud and greedy and are in it for the money. They also like having power and authority and since they are looked up to they use it for their own ends. They typically are able to speak, entertain and hold people's attention. many of them are able to gain control over others and manipulate them. People are sheep; they are vulnerable. Many people love novelty. They want to be entertained and they want to be a part of something that is pleasing to the flesh and cutting edge. Thus they have "itching ears."

  5. I will be attending a service tomorrow, with my Bible and a very critical eye. I was involved in utter charismatic chaos for 16 years, and I am now going back with my eyes wide open, and I pray hard he tries to kick me or slap me because guess what? I am his size and more than up to the task of responding "in the love of God". And then, I pray, the Spirit of Elijah as I am well prepared to confront him publicly and prophetically. Let's see God pull his file before 3000 people, and my purpose isn't his destruction or humiliation, but for the first time in his life, GENUINE REPENTANCE, SALVATION AND RESTORATION.
