Todd Bentley Caught Lying About Resurrecting a Man From the Dead in Houston Hospital
Todd Bentley, a false prophet who masquerades as a Christian evangelist that we’ve reported on numerous times here at Pulpit & Pen was recently caught in a lie claiming that a man who overdosed on heroin and was supposedly pronounced dead on arrival at a Houston-area hospital was at was spontaneously resurrected from the dead upon the broadcast of one of Bentley’s revival events.
Chris Rosebrough of Pirate Christian Radio was skeptical of this claim and took it upon himself to contact the hospital to see if he could get any confirmation from the hospital staff of what Bentley was claiming. The hospital staff had heard of no such thing confirming Rosebrough’s suspicions that Todd Bentley was, once again, making false claims in the name of Christ.
Here the audio of Rosebrough’s phone call with the hospital staff below.
When miracles of this caliber were performed in the early church, they were not obscure, hidden things. Even when Jesus himself commanded those whom he healed to keep quiet (Mark 1:44; 5:43; 7:36; 8:30; 9:9), it proved an impossible task for them. For when one has a true encounter with the Living God, it is not something that is brushed off, as the purpose of these miracles was to proclaim to the world who Jesus is and who sent Him.
Today, we merely have frauds who practice things in the name of Christ who really don’t know Him. Jesus had very specific words for men like Todd Bentley:
Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ –Matthew 7:21-23
