Todd Bentley/Fresh Fire Ministries

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]soapinha)

So, today when I was watching God Channel (for research purposes, I swear! :P) they were showing some weird "Faith Healing" congregation, lead by a Todd Bentley of Fresh Fire Ministries - which, by looking at their Statement of Faith and various links, is a Dominionist Evangelist ministry, and it seems they are connected to Joel's Army groups, and there is more on their involvement with 'Joel's Army'.

It also seems the minister, Todd Bentley, has published several CD's/audio works on 'healing ministry'. They don't seem to promote Dominionism, rather than prayer for health problems.

They also operate Global Ministries, which specifically target poorer and war torn areas such as Africa, including The Republic of Uganda. They also have something called a 'Jesus Village'. Personally, I find this particularly worrying; God knows those people have been through enough without a bunch of 'Evangelists' coming to proselytise to them.

I'm not sure how Dominionist they are - but since they're a Joel's Army ministry, I'm not going to underestimate them. Their 'Statement of Faith' also speaks volumes to me (it seems most Dominionist/Fundamentalist groups always place the Bible above God and Jesus.)

Does anyone have more info on this group? If they're dangerous/coercive in any way?
Thanks in advance.

Mods, I wasn't sure what exactly to tag this post under, although I placed it under 'stealth evangelism' - but, just add/remove any tags you feel are appropriate. :)
