This from a fresh notice placed today on Todd Bentley’s website “. . . we have discovered new information revealing that Todd Bentley has entered into an unhealthy relationship on an emotional level with a female member of his staff. In light of this new information and in consultation with his leaders and advisors, Todd Bentley has agreed to step down from his position on the Board of Directors and to refrain from all public ministry for a season to receive counsel in his personal life.”
Some of you may well have missed this. I came back from a holiday yesterday (posts have been published on autopilot with a bit of help from my editor) to discover Todd and Shonnah Bentley were reported a few days ago to have been under significant marital pressure to the point where they have now separated. Their own ministry’s board of directors issued a statement which reported that no sexual immorality is involved, but explained that Todd will not be a part of a forthcoming missions trip, while God TV announced that they have come to the end of their broadcasts from Lakeland.
