Days after A TikTok user-created and posted a short minute-long clip from several snippets of a Bethel pastor’s sermon, that pastor has taken down the video from YouTube and has “clarified” his comments amid the backlash from #metoo proponents who found his comments alarming and sexist
Preached by Kris Vallotton in 2014 the Co-founder of the School of the Prophets and Senior Associate Leader of Bethel Church claimed that he’s heard hundreds of testimonies of girls’ hymens being recreated and regrown as part of a miraculous healing from God.
Guys are stimulated sexually through the eyes, women through the touch. You’re like ‘Not me!’ Whatever, you’re a freak…I’m saying listen, if it’s not for sale girls, don’t advertise… If you fish with shark bait, you’re going to catch sharks…remember there’s always someone with a better body than yours…the girl in the front row, she was sitting on a bench, she was my most promiscuous girl there was letting everybody grab her on the basketball…I’ve seen thousands of people’s virginity restored. I have had hundreds of emails, (testimonies) about girls hymens being restored
It’s the latter comment that interests us, not the former. This is not the first time he’s made such a claim. He also said on Facebook 10 years ago:
This is the testimony of the regrown hymen, from his book Moral Revolution:
Regrown hymens fits well in with Bethel’s theology on the supernatural, with Valloton himself and other pastors claiming over the years that God has regrown legs, teeth, eyes, hair, and other parts of the body.
In response to the backlash, he borrowed a page from SBC president Ed Litton and removed the video so that it could be ‘reviewed’, posting on his Instagram a message where he gives a bit more context to the other ‘sexist’ comments he made that the secular media find troubling (if it’s not for sale, don’t advertise) but did not back away from his hundreds of regrown hymen claims.
