Lakeland: The Movie
Rick wrote about Roy Petersen’s film here
Thanks to Bene D for posting on this on a work day that was very busy for me.
Bene D and I did several posts trying to look at the documentary before its release. Do a search for “Roy Petersen” on the search box and you should see them all.
I am happiest though that although I have been sceptical about the film, Roy has been pleased about my efforts to be even handed. Although it’s not the film I would make, I hope that he does well with it.
“Not the film I would make” is perhaps an understatement. But Roy has always come across as a good guy…

When I viewed this video, it came across to me as whimsical. It’s amazing to me, that we humans have the capacity to use our brains and show intelligence. Yet our behaviors can be unpredictable. Todd did stir up peoples emotions and desires, that invokes the supernatural. There was a fascination with the chants for healings and calling down for supernatural manifestations. All those for sure cheers for the many resurrections. For my faith, they were pushing it too far. This type of event, I’m sure brought in big bucks.
It’s difficult for me to overlook the relevance of the behaviors that went on behind the scenes. Especially of it’s leaders. A lot started to come into question about Lakeland. The scandle of Todd’s inappropriate involvement with his nanny. Then there was that unforgettable ring ceremony for Todd with his wife by his side. Those prophetic voices ringing out on the platform that night, giving him his ring, declairing Todd’s leadership. Whoops! They got it wrong. We humans often get it wrong.

In many ways seems, feels really good and nice.
Lots of young people very youth orientated
Lots of young energy
Like I typed before, seems really good
This reminds me a bit of the Pentecostal Church the way they cater to young people.
That is part of their dynamics
Their is a whole bunch quite a lot of things going on here
The Systematic and Operative Theology I would definitely question
Just at 107:32 Todd is speaking and it feels good.
I feel quite a good presence as I’m listening to all of this on the head phones while watching this on the computer
108 and on am seeing persons having hands laid on them and being slain in the spirit.
That is quite a lot of energy going on here
A lot of energy transfer
I think that this sort of thing can be quite exhausting too.
There should be stability and balance here too is important
I think the Title should have been, “FLAKELAND”

Yes, Brano, see what you mean.
People need good Bible Based Gospel Preaching
Our North American feel good consumer society maybe leads us to liking things like this?
Plus with North American society being known to become more liberal as well can and maybe also leads to persons gravitating towards something like Lakeland
Social Liberalism has been a part of society as early as the late 1800s
This came into the Methodist Churches in this time
By 1925 and onwards, liberalism had made its’ impact on the United Church of Canada, thus affecting society
At the end of World War 2 was unused Chemicals converted into pesticides sprayed into foods.
Being the largest Protestant Denomination can affect a good proportion of society
The 1950s comes to my mind as well
I think that is when society first started becoming more liberal on a larger scale.
The United Church of Canada became more liberal in the 50s
Rock and Roll music became more popular around this time in history
Then came the 1960s where the United Church went down from 1 million to around 675, 000 losing around 1/3rd of its’ members
Out of the timeline of our cultural buttress now came Lakeland
Good one John!…Out of the timeline of our cultural buttress now came Lakeland
If we back up the train,”God’s Generals”,the Vineyard movement,The prophetic madness,New Age “soaking” CD”S….well,you know what I am saying…aheem
Lakeland was a train wreck waiting to happen!
I am so thankful,that they didn,t pass out some “juice” for people to drink!
I often like Dr Charles Stanely is solid and straighforward
Agreed,…A man of the Word & filled with much love & compassion!
A rare breed,in this day & age.
Too bad they did not include more “nuggets”,from Todds “mentor…..A militant false prophecy
We are coming to the times when passive Christianity and passive Christians will cease to exist. There is a maturity, a discipline, and a divine militancy coming upon the people of God. Those who have succumbed to humanistic and idealistic theologies may have a hard time with this, but we must understand that God is a military God. The title that He uses ten times more than any other in Scripture is “the Lord of hosts,” or “Lord of armies.” There is a martial aspect to His character that we must understand and embrace for the times and the job to which we are now coming.34
