Does anyone else see the similarities?

And for those who want to see a video comparison, I found the following videos on YouTube:

Can anyone tell the difference between the things being done in the next video by this charismatic, energetic, Alex P. Keaton look-a-like named Dr. Richard Bartlett who’s peddling the New Age, and what Todd Bentley and other Word of Faith, self-proclaimed prophets of God are doing? The similarities are striking.

I suppose I shouldn’t “touch” this guy because he’s obviously performing “signs and wonders,” and to millions of biblically illiterate experience-chasers, this proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he’s anointed.

Dr. Bartlett even has testimonials like faith healers have.

Here is some additional material.

    Yep, I see the similarities, but what is worse, I have experienced them too. God has truly delivered me and saved me out of this muck amd mire and I am so grateful.

  2. i went to the Brownsville revival and i must say that the fruit that came out of it was no where close to comparable to the poison that came out of Lakeland. i believe the testimony of that statement is the fact that it thrived and was sustained by the power of God for the amount of time it did…not only that but what was birthed inside of people that attended it also…take nathan morris for instance…watch this video and listen to this mans heart and tell me that this is not a man who is seeking God?

  3. i ask that you please watch the whole video that i am about to post…this was taken from the same place they talked about in the above post and video. after watching movies like “the finger of god” and youtube videos of Todd Bentley and other spiritual serpents like them i can totally see why people are turned of to events such as these. i ask that you please remember that Jesus told us that through the power of God that we would be able to do even greater things than He did while here on Earth. I was born and raised in a Pentecostal church and from an early age have been a witness to the healing power of God both in others and in my own life. i ask this question: when the maker of the “finger of god” movies was looking for actually proof of the healing power of God at work, where was he when this was going on? he was following the people spewing their “new Mystics” venom and following up on spiritual encounters that are not of God nor able to be proved by the video he was shooting….but then there is this:

    where is there this kind of fruit from lakeland?
    where is there this kind of manifestation of God’s power in anything having to do with bently, lakeland, mystical encounters or any other religion experience that those previously mentioned people and events have lumped together to make their cocktail of false truth and fake miracles?
