LAKELAND: So you think the truth is out now? (August 16, 2008)
From the Board of Directors of Fresh Fire Ministries:
From the Board of Directors:
We wish to thank all of our friends and partners for the overwhelming flood of support and compassion we have received as a ministry on behalf of Todd and Shonnah Bentley. The many phone calls and emails of concern from people who genuinely love the Bentleys and Fresh Fire Ministries have been a great encouragement to all of us here during these past few days. In particular, the rallying of support and prayer for Todd and Shonnah by prominent leaders within the Body of Christ has been a beautiful indicator of the maturity and grace the Lord is bringing to his Bride.
We wish to acknowledge, however, that since our last statement from the Fresh Fire Board of Directors, 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.
For the entire statement:
In my last letter I showed you that this false revival was built upon the false apostle and false prophets of sexual sins. Today's revelation from Todd's ministry should come as no surprise to the discerning Christian. Unfortunately they seem to be few and far between in the charasmatic movement.
Be advised, you are receiving this new information from Fresh Fire who's head is a pathalogical liar and a charlatan. The employees should be abandoning the ministry instead of announcing that it will continue without the head false evangelist. It's rotten to the core and the core is Todd Bentley.
The wolves will be running now and distancing themselves from this ministry. They will also be telling you why you shouldn't hold them accountable for their support of this strong delusion.
Run while you can lest a worse deception come upon you. Any ministry that supporting this abominaton should be discarded and if you were one of the supporters who mocked, scorned and rediculed the watchmen warning you to flee, you need to repent to the Lord and apologise to those you hurt and attacked.
I forgive you.
I warn you to get into the Word of God and away from the charasmatic movement. The leaders are wolves and they are left dealing with demonic impartations.
Run to Jesus. Get into the Word of God.
