Bethel Church in Redding, CA manipulates audiences by piping in fog through the ventilation system calling it “glory clouds” – an actual manifestation of the Holy Spirit.
It’s not. It’s a fog machine.
They do this with gold dust and feathers, too, saying they’re actual angel feathers. Todd White goes up to some people on the street and says the Holy Spirit is telling him one of them has back problems. He does this gag with their feet, showing one leg is longer than the other. Then he prays to God and makes it look like God is growing out their leg to even it with the other one.
He’s literally pulling their leg.
These men are lying, manipulative charlatans. But, I repeat myself – yet when you try to call them heretics, they have staunch defenders…
“No! They preach the Gospel! They keep the main thing the main thing!”
Yeah… they really don’t. But let’s, for the sake of argument, say they did. All this with the “glory clouds” and “street magic” they call the Holy Spirit… do you really think God is ok with that?
How is that not taking His name in vain?
Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and are disqualified regarding the faith. (2 Timothy 3:8)
Jesus said that we are to worship God in spirit and truth.
God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth (John 4:24)
The Bible says to share the truth in love. If it isn’t true, it isn’t loving.
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into Him who is the head, into Christ… (Ephesians 4:15)
Paul said to the Corinthians:
We have renounced disgraceful underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or tamper with God’s word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God. (2 Corinthians 4:2)
There’s no question Bethel Church, Todd White, and others that do what they do are false teachers. We are to have nothing to do with them… when we understand the text.
