A Todd White sermon has brought us a couple of little tidbits of bad theology and has broadened our vocabulary by teaching us some charismatic jargon, giving us an inside school of what happens during a youth conference when everyone is at full throttle.
Last year there was hope that White had repented of his false gospel when he specifically said in a message, “I feel like I’ve just seen something completely brand new! This is hard for people, huh? It’s hard for me. It’s hard for me because I feel like I haven’t preached the whole gospel. And I repent. I repent,” but then within a few days, he clarified that he didn’t really mean it like that.
In a message given to his church, White teaches that it is a demonic doctrine to teach that any healing signs and wonders might be caused by the devil, insisting that he cannot have anything to do with it. He says that all sickness comes from the devil and is “twisted” and stupid to say that God might use sickness to build character.
…It’s demonic doctrine to say that if someone prays for healing and they get healed, the devil did it. If I’m praying in Jesus’ name for somebody to get healed, and they get healed, and the devil did it, we all pack our bags.
If I’m praying in the mighty name of Jesus, for someone’s deaf ear to open and it does, the devil had nothing to do with it except run. Run! I must run out of this here right now and get out of here. That’s the only thing he had to do with it; leave.
When someone gets healed, all healing comes from God. All sickness comes from hell. 2000 years ago all sickness came from the devil. 2000 years later, people have come up with all kinds of things. Well, no, God does it because he wants to make you a better person. God’s trying to build character – look, God doesn’t have to make you sick to build character in you. That’s so twisted and so stupid.
By now our readers naturally have a couple of bible verses ringing in their ears. A few that come to mind:
- Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness…’ Matthew 7:22-23
- For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect,” Matt. 24:24
- The LORD furthermore said to him, ‘Now put your hand into your bosom.’ So he put his hand into his bosom, and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous like snow… Exodus 4:6
- And the Lord said to him, ‘Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes him dumb or deaf, or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord?” Exodus 4:11
- Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope Romans 5:3-4
Further taking shots at discernment ministries who have a habit of covering the things that Todd does, he suggests there is no ability to compartmentalize, and says those who spend their time exposing false teachers have no relationship with Christ and are leading others to hell:
And if you are religious without relationship person, you will study the Word, to find the ways that you can expose all the false teachers that are out there and not realize that you’re actually leading people to hell. I say that, again. It feels so good inside as you study religion, but you do not have intimacy or relationship. God did not create you to have a relationship with a book. God did not create you to have relationship with a book. I am not to have a relationship with a book. It’s not God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Bible.
That aside, he then goes on to describe a service he attended at “Apostle Maldonado’s church.” If that name sounds familiar to you, we wrote about Pastor Guillermo Maldonado and his prophetess wife here, recounting how he and his wife have 120 million dollars in assets to figure out, the fruits of his heavy emphasis on the prosperity gospel and.
You know, I just came back from Apostle Maldonado’s church…at a youth conference, where there was like 2500 kids. 2500 kids!…Crazy, crazy stuff. But the youth I saw such a hunger for purity and power…yesterday, after my session…I said, ‘let’s lay hands on all these kids.’
And so they brought them up. They call it a ‘Typewriter’- where you bring people up to the front. But literally, it’s like and old fashioned typewriter [makes hand gestures an sound effects of typing, and every keystroke results in a child being ‘slain in the spirit’ and dropping].
And kids were flying everywhere. Little kids. Jesus was landing on the youth in such a powerful,
fiery way. They were getting baptized in the Holy Ghost and fire. I mean, like, power, power. It was absolutely crazy.
