What you’re about to see is a brief video from Christalignment’s own YouTube page; (here’s the original uncensored version… which was removed the same day as this article). Their description says this: “Every evening the team offer drumming/dancing free workshops which are so much fun and have plenty of good vibes. We believe this is an important expression of community and oneness in the whole tribe.”
What the Bethel-approved ministry Christalignment fails to mention is that some of the women in this video are dancing topless to this tribal drumbeat; one of them puts her shirt on near the beginning while another happily dances topless the whole time, while the Christalignment team smiles and laughs as they pound the drums. Putting the best possible spin on this, someone could say that the topless woman just suddenly appeared and it isn’t Christalignment’s fault… but Christalignment made the deliberate decision to film this and then load it onto their YouTube channel.
Does Kris Vallotton approve of this? He (sort of) approves of the Christalignment “Christian Tarot Cards” (as long as they are called “Destiny Cards”). Bethel Pastor/Missionary Ben Fitzgerald is the son of Christalignment’s leaders: Jen and Ken Hodge (you can see Ken with gray hair playing a drum). Theresa Dedmon, one of the many “pastors” at Bethel has written several blog posts now in support of Christalignment and “Destiny Cards.” Does she also believe that topless tribal dancing “is an important expression of community and oneness in the whole tribe?”
Christalignment thinks it’s a good idea to take and then post photos of the naked people who visit their booth for “Destiny Card” readings:
Christalignment claims to be “undercover” at these New Age/Pagan events so that they can reach people who normally reject Christianity. They want to show people God’s love by giving them Destiny Readings, instead of explaining the (“old-fashioned” and “religious”) Gospel message of Christ crucified for our sins.
