(My main post on Todd Bentley’s appearance on History TV Canada June 1, 2 and 4.)
Todd Bentley, the noted faith-healing Canadian evangelist, was featured in a History TV Canada program in early June.
The second episode ever of Miracles Decoded, which featured Bentley along with the late Padre Pio and what the show describes as the “white witches” of Poland.
Not that it wasn’t a useful introduction to faith healing, which aired June 1, 2 and 4 for viewers across all of Canada. It was. But the wrinkle is this specific man who was featured. Todd Bentley, a native British Columbian now living and ministering in the US, who is in some ways is not typical, even of faith healers.
It would help viewers to have Bentley put into context. Once over lightly may mislead. So, what follows is a brief analysis of that episode for those who were unable to see it.
The Reno Outpouring site has pictures of the “History Channel” cameras at Bentley’s visit to the church in 2013. This probably means that Bentley was interviewed at that time for this episode. Others featured in the show may have been interviewed at that time as well. But the various “experts” are filmed on their own.
That doesn’t discount the possibility that a camera was sent down early *this* year to do interviews and re-enactments. So, if I make a reference to “2014″ it is to this obvious follow up work.
Throughout the how, there are references to “now” or “today”, so History Tv Canada was working on the assumption that things would carry on without change up until when the program aired.
I think that most of my readers missed the show, so here is my report on it, in some detail.
