By March 5, 2013Abbotsford News, Faith

Disgraced Abbotsford preacher Todd Bentley’s claims that he can cure people simply by hitting them has landed him in hot water in the United Kingdom.

Or rather he has been refused entry into the UK according to The Telegraph “>The Telegraph newspaper.

Last summer a British MP suggested Bentley might be a danger to UK citizens.

According to The Telegraph Bentley [dubbed the punching preacher] is at an event in Norway called Miracles, Signs and Wonders.

“However, Mr Bentley has been told he was “not conducive to the public good” and was not allowed to enter the country.

“The former drug addict, who describes receiving “prophetic and miracle-healing anointing” from God, has previously used his shows to “cure” cancer by kicking his followers in the face or stomach.

“In clips, he is heard telling an audience: “And the Holy Spirit spoke to me, the gift of faith came on me. He said, ‘kick her in the face with your biker boot’. I inched closer and I went like this – bam! And just as my boot made contact with her nose, she fell under the power of God.”

  • Mike: I am a Bible believing Christian. This incredibly complex world of order, design and artistry points to an amazing intelligence, an outstanding architect, the most superb artist and a designer unmatched by the greatest earth can produce.

    There is plenty of suffering and dysfunction and downright evil, but God in Christ is here, ready to give us his love, mercy and help.

    I can barely fathom what goes on in the heads of people who follow this man.

    But Christians historically have taken their eyes off God, who alone is worthy of our worship, and they have replaced the Lord with mere human beings.

    I came too close to leaving my Presbyterian church in the early seventies, to join the ‘Jesus people’, a group that morphed from zealous new converts to disgusting cult almost overnight.
