The following are two excerpts from a very well written article found on the front page of “The Vancouver Sun”. The part about the pudgy Paul is hilarious… wait, I mean its actually sad, not that I think Paul is actually pudgy in heaven, but that people will actually buy and believe accounts of Bentley’s bogus journeys. He really should have been spending more time with his wife then taking trips to heaven and hanging out with Paul. Paul should have said something. (Bentley should have also been more concerned about keeping his house in order than flying to Florida to hold his meeting. The leadership in Florida really did him a disservice.)
Todd Bentley: B.C. bad boy stirring up a faith-healing storm
But in the past few months, the burly B.C. bad boy has turned into the hottest, most divisive Christian faith healer in North America…
…In one of many Bentley books, CDs and DVDs that are available on the Fresh Fire website, the B.C. evangelist amusingly describes meeting the apostle Paul in heaven.
“As unbelievable as it may sound, I actually saw the apostle Paul come walking toward me onto the bridge,” Bentley says.
“You might be wondering how I knew immediately that it was Paul. I just perceived it by divine knowledge and revelation. People have asked me what he looked like, and so I will attempt to describe his appearance. He was short, not more than 5’1″ or 5’2″ (I’m 5’6”)…. Looking very Jewish with a short, trimmed, white beard, my first thought was of a monk in a monastery! He actually had jolly cheeks and I thought: Paul, you’ve got a little weight on you! I mean he wasn’t fat but he looked a little pudgy!”
