Frankly, Bethel Church in Redding California is no church at all. It is a blasphemous, idolatrous organization run by gospel-distorting men and women who do nothing more than lead people right into the hands of the enemy. From its faux signs and wonders to its rank heretical prosperity gospel, it can safely be concluded that Bethel Church should be marked and avoided at all costs.
Yet, much of its worship porn is still spread throughout mainstream denominations and independent churches around the world. Some that would even be considered “doctrinally sound” churches have turned a blind eye to the apostasy of this organization in the name of artistic license in worship. For whatever reason, many gospel-preaching pastors fail to see the heresy of those whose false gospel they relentlessly preach against. In other words, they will claim the abhor the prosperity gospel all while inviting the worst propagators of them into their pulpits through “worship.”
Bethel is full of fairy tales about Jesus walking into the rooms of these so-called prophets and prophetesses. One example is a Bethel worship pastor who said that Jesus walked into the room and asked him—yes, Jesus asked him—for forgiveness. Another Bethel lady-pastor named Jenna Winston said that when she was locked up in a psych ward, Jesus “walked into the room” and got in the bed with her, and started playing with her hair.
And we have Bethel’s number two “Apostle,” Kris Vallotton, who said that Jesus walked into the bathroom while he was laid up in the Bathtub and told him all kinds of crazy things; that he was a “great leader” and he was going to be a prophet to kings, prime ministers, and governors.
All kinds of weird “Jesus walked into the room” and did such-and-such encounters. Well, here’s another one to add to the repertoire. Lindy-Ann Hopkins, a graduate of Bethel School of Ministry, recently visited Bethel’s infamous “healing rooms” where she gave a crazy account of Jesus walking into her room with a ring in his hand and asking her to marry him. Yep. That’s what she said; she just casually threw that in after long-winded praise and glowing accolades she spoke of the useless “healing rooms” at Bethel.
