Supernatural Botox!?!

January 14, 2011

We have seen our share of the inane, insane, and profane at Scotteriology. John Crowder… Patricia King… Cindy Jacobs… Todd Bentley… and unfortunately many others.

But this guy just might be the most ridiculous. Meet Joshua Mills.

Joshua gets a lot of face time from Patricia King and Extreme Pathetic Prophetic, and he likes to run a scam where he sprinkles himself in gold dust and glitters, then oil ‘flows’ from his hands, and finally, angel feathers and gem stones magically appear. He says and does a lot of ridiculous stuff that requires a significant effort at suspension of disbelief, but…

But, at some point in this sermon/altar call, whatever he is attempting here, someone should have walked out of the congregation, slapped him as hard as they could across the face, and said, “Stop it. Stop treating us as if we are mentally handicapped!”

Who  wants to bet that regardless of how many diamonds or gemstones (and I would love to submit any of those to scientific investigation) magically appeared Joshua still took up an offering for his ‘ministry’?

    Isn’t it interesting how people’s cultural needs match with what God wants to do for them?

    I am a Pentecostal. I can also say that I am glad to see that this type of garbage isn’t seen much in Australia; which for the most part is still a conservative denomination. What is it about the American culture that seems to produce much of this falsehood?

    I grew up in this stuff. This is obviously somewhat simplified, but from my own experience, much of “this stuff” survives and thrives because American Pentecostalism so strongly discourages asking critical questions. If you question leadership, it’s akin to questioning the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit’s “anointing” on leadership.

    I don’t think there is any room for self-correction within the denomination/movement. It excommunications (although not formally) anyone who would criticize this type of rubbish.

    The weird thing is that Patricia King, Todd Bentley and Joshua Mills all come from Canada! Along with Benny Hinn and Scott Bailey. (And me.)
