I have tried to not go on about Todd Bentley as my previous post has already attracted over 100 comments and I have made my views very clear especially when it comes to people elevating experience above doctrine. However I came across this video on Battle 4 Truth and I was wondering how much more evidence Christians need to know that Todd is preaching another gospel and it is NOT the gospel of Jesus Christ. Apparently God told Todd that people already know about Jesus and now “you’ve got to get people to believe in the angel” and to believe in ‘the supernatural’.

There is NOWHERE in scripture which says that we must elevate angels or anywhere where the apostles tried to get people to ‘believe in the angel’ at the expense of knowing Jesus. It’s ALL about Jesus, pre and post conversion. Once you elevate angels above Jesus, that angel becomes an idol because Jesus does not take first place.

Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, 19 and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from God. (Colossians 2:18-19)

But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed (Galatians 1:8 )

And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. 2 For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. (1 Cor 2:1)
