With Ke$ha Cover Songs, Booty Comparisons, and Dancing Demons, Transformation Church’s Easter Show Was Something Else

Pastor Michael Todd leads Transformation Church (TC.) He is known for crowd surfing during his church’s worship service and spending a lot of money. In the last two years, he’s given away $3,500,000 in houses, cash, and cars, spent $65,000 to buy 168 pairs of shoes, gave $600,000 in “reparations,” and purchased $66,000,000 in real estate.

He’s also known for preaching some good old-fashioned Modalism, giving the world perhaps the grossest illustration in church after he snorted and then hocked a loogie full of spit and snot into his hand and rubbed it in another man’s face and claiming his church had 75k salvations in the last 18 months even though practically none of them stuck around. He recently had a service where ballet dancers with bare butts danced around the stage and in a recent sermon, offered a muddled, confused, contradictory, and seeming apology for what God’s word says about homosexuality.

During their Easter Service, the church put on a high production value, hour-long production of their ‘Ransom’ show, featuring cover songs by Justin Timberlake, Ke$ha, a host of original songs, dancing, choreography, women talking about the size of their butts, and ultimately a retelling of the story of God rescuing mankind. Todd explains where the idea came from:

“In 2015 I became the pastor and I didn’t know what a pastor did. And so I was meeting with a group of people, and they were like, ‘what should we do for Easter?’ And I was like, ‘I never preached an Easter message, so I’m not going to start this year. We need to come up with an Easter play.”

They put on the play in 2015, with Todd explaining that they purposefully decided to go “right to the edge” and do everything “short of sin” in order to reach people. Now, however, with more money, talent, and production value, they decided to redo it in 2023 so that people can see it with the “level of anointing and excellence” that he envisioned seven years ago before he had the means to make it happen.

  1. “Never preached an Easter message…” read: never preached the GOSPEL.

    It would be laughable if it wasn’t so abominable. Not a shepherd.

    Not even a hireling. Hirelings still know they are being paid to protect the sheep, they just run from confronting the wolves. This guy is the wolf.

  2. I am delighted and saddened at the same time to have found this resource. I am delighted for what should be very obvious reason: It’s illuminating and seemingly an excellent source for examples of the many false “teachers” roaming about looking for, finding, and corralling those whose foundations are frail and in search of the strength of the Gospel….or, perhaps many are not. In short, these people are sinister and diabolical and serve as a vivid example of Satan on the move. In my 6 decades of life, I can’t recall a time such as these for the state of our once-great and blessed Republic and our foundations that made such possible. For 150 years this malignancy has spread through the land almost unabated such that now we are so much like Rome. Just as it has been written in His word.

    1. How correct you are, friend.
      God will no more tolerate our turning from Him in favor of evil than He has for all nations before us. Outside of the rate at which individuals are fleeing Christianity, nothing presents a direr harbinger than the increasing number of churches openly and proudly embracing evil.
      Surely, time is short.

  3. I hope you are right about time being short, RoP. I am not sure how much longer I can take this.

    Here’s why: On Good Friday, our sermon [in Sydney, Australia] commenced with the assertion that when Jesus cried ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ that was because He had the first line of a song stuck in His head [Psalm 22 being the song].

    We were than told that the allusions to Jesus’ crucifixion correctly noted in Psalm 22 were mere metaphor, since David himself did not go through those things. Huh. I thought Psalm 22 was a prophecy, not a metaphor.


    Jesus was on the brink of death, carrying the weight of all the sins of everyone who would ever believe in him in the whole of world history, and was about to receive God’s unmitigated wrath on Himself, and someone thinks he has the first line of a song running through His head?

    Needless to say, we are now looking for a new Church to attend where God and His Word are honoured, and nonsense is not preached on any Sunday, let alone Good Friday.
