Quick Thoughts on Bethel Redding California

Bad Theology Take

12-8-2015 10-45-26 AMHere’s a screenshotted FB post where someone quoted Kris Vallotton (from Bethel Redding) saying that the church must demonstrate the miraculous works of Christ. It is clearly implied that this is what allows nonbelievers to experience repentance.

Additionally, the “judge not” card is being played against anyone who would judge people for their sin—that is, the quote maintains that it is the Church’s fault for not providing these sensual experiences that folks outside the family of God remain there.

Bethel Redding California is a well-known heretical group that uses the Bible to promote their false notions of God. They are guilty of promoting sensuality (among other disqualifying sins). Jude warns in the fourth verse of his epistle:

For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

How to Respond

My quick thoughts on how to respond to this egregious accusation:

The only miracle the world needs to see is people repenting of their superstitions and repenting of their desires for God to perform for them and, instead, trusting in His Word alone.

Stay away from heresies, my friends.
