Gullibility Test: Is Todd Bentley Telling the Truth?
After a devastating report from Nightline exposing Bentley’s inability to prove that a single person was healed by his ministry and the revelation that Bentley was having an extramarital affair, he left to join Rick Joyner’s MorningStar Ministries, where his “restoration” has been one of Joyner’s primary missions. He recently returned to organizing ‘healing’ meetings. Bentley frequently gloats that he speaks to Jesus and Angels in his dreams and has even said that the Holy Spirit has ordered himto kick a kick a woman in the face with his boot and to take a woman’s legs and “bang them up and down on the platform like a baseball bat.”
So much untruth it’s hard to know where to begin, but after months and years of Todd’s ‘stories’–which have no correlation to any physical reality–one would have to be operating under an extreme confirmation bias and have a large excess of credulity to believe that he healed anyone of anything by punching them in their sternum.
So then, a good way to tell if you are naive, gullible, superstitious, and operating under very faulty categories for interpreting reality: when Todd was speaking you believed every word he said in the above video.
If this is you, and you just thought to yourself, “Damn! I must be super gullible! What can I do?” Don’t worry yourself too much. The kind of stupidity that Bentley is peddling in the video can be fixed pretty easily (though not always painlessly!).
How you ask?
Well if you would just send me a seed offering of five-hundred dollars then the Lord will multiply that step of faith into real knowledge! I will send you my five part series Knowing the Knowable, and we will partner to fight the stupidity of MorningStar Ministries.
