View Full Version : The Mark of the Beast Chip Thread *Merged*

On July 9, 2008 ABC News' Nightline broadcast an investigative report on Bentley focusing on his faith healing claims, finances, and criminal past. Following the report, Bentley took time off from the revival but returned on July 18, 2008. Five days later, Bentley and Strader announced that Bentley would be leaving the revival permanently and that his last day would be August 23, 2008.
Bentley's services feature faith healing, a common aspect of the Charismatic movement. Bentley's behavior during the healings has been criticized in both Christian and mainstream press for its violence; at times he has been known to kick, hit, smack or knock over participants.
While testimonies of people being healed during the services seem to be a major reason that many people are drawn to attend, the validity of the healings has been criticized.Both the lack of medical corroboration of multiple injuries sustained due to Bentley's actions and the healings themselves have been a topic of discussion in the media.  In particular, a Nightline interviewer personally asked Bentley for three examples of cures, which Bentley said he would supply but he didn't. The report concluded "not a single miracle could be verified."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Todd_Bentley

YES! He is leaving! They're even tearing down the tent. I found several articles about it online. Apparently the eye-opening interview on Nightline revealed him to be a fraud.

If you don't know Todd Bentley, don't tell people that he's a fake!! He is not. He's been at our church and what he is doing with the Revival in Lakeland, Florida is a calling from God. You first need to watch him on the Godtv network on satellite or through the internet. Don't judge him.
JRSSLS, there is a ton of threads about Bentley under the Apostasy section. I had a friend that was questioning him and I started doing some research watching his videos and GodTV. I would have to say that letting that influence in my home really caused evil to pick up in increased arguments and other influences (even a message from the grave from a psychic). Not until I specifically prayed for God to cleanse my home of all demonic influences did things really start to get better. Just personal FYI.

But after the rapture there will be brand new Christians...
Yes, but I think some of these brand new Christians will have become Christians because they recognized that what had occured was the Rapture. They will finally know that all thier old "crazy" Christian friends were right. So I also think when the anti-christ begins to force people to take the mark, these brand new Christians will recognize that for what it really is as well. No one will mistakingly take the mark thinking it is something related to being Christian.

From what I know, this will be a CONSCIOUS thing. Everyone will have the knowledge that by taking the mark, will know it is wrong. But many will do it to survive. Its a decision based on the soul. So say for instance U & I understand we have to get a mark to buy or sell anything like a credit card, BUT its implanted or tattoed on the skin. We WILL know its an eternal choice....

Could it be that the technology and ability to use the Mark is available today (chip, bar code ,etc) and before the a/c comes to power it will be used on a voluntary basis then when a/c comes in to power , he will make it Mandatory?

Now Todd's starting up a supernatural training centre "school"...only costs $3600. Gee, that's not obvious.
