Maybe you’ve heard of Todd White and maybe you haven’t. If not, you’re probably better off for it. But Todd White is a popular charismatic preacher who appeals to the young crowd for his alluring personality—but is the gospel he preaches laced with spiritual poison? Is he a false teacher? Is he a charlatan of the highest order as many have claimed?

If you’ve followed The Dissenter for any amount of time, you probably already know the answer to these questions.

Todd White, the pastor of Lifestyle Christianity located in Watauga, Texas, has firmly established himself within the prosperity gospel and Word of Faith movements, largely through the patronage of Patricia King, a false prophetess associated with the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and widely recognized for her own controversial and false teachings. His alliance with such disreputable figures as King, as well as Benny Hinn, Francis Chan, and many others, should have immediately raised red flags concerning White’s theological integrity and the authenticity of his supposed miraculous healings, including his infamous leg-lengthening parlor trick.

White’s teachings are not just erroneous but blatantly blasphemous. He has made numerous claims about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit that starkly contradict biblical teachings. For instance, his outrageous claim that Jesus wants to be in bed with someone as they’re watching pornography—according to White, Jesus desires to “be their climax.” You don’t think he actually said that? Watch:

Of course, this is not only unbiblical but absolutely revolting. Such a portrayal of Jesus is antithetical to the nature of God, who turns his face from sin and who calls people away from sin to repentance.

And then there’s Todd White’s comparison of the Holy Spirit to a “pooping dog”—irreverent blasphemy. Such comparisons are not only disrespectful but also contradict the reverence with which Scripture instructs believers to regard the Holy Spirit. By likening the Holy Spirit to dogs, which Scripture itself uses as a symbol for those outside of God’s kingdom, White showcases a profound misunderstanding of, or disregard for, biblical teachings.

White’s narcissism further surfaces in his habit of drawing parallels between himself and Jesus, a common trait among false prophets. He brazenly claims that Jesus defeated Satan not as God but as a man, a claim that he uses to elevate his own status as a “god.” This heretical “little gods” teaching, prominent within the NAR movement, diminishes the divinity of Christ and the significance of His victory over sin and death. By comparing himself to Jesus in terms of facing hatred and being spoken against, White not only elevates himself unduly but also distorts the truth of Christ’s unique, sinless nature and divine mission.

His false prophecies, such as the claim that all sexually transmitted diseases would be healed at his Awaken the Dawn conference, further discredit him as a true prophet of God. The non-fulfillment of such prophecies is a clear indication, according to biblical standards, that one does not speak for God.

The prosperity gospel, the false gospel which White fervently advocates, is a major perversion of biblical teaching. This doctrine, which promises health and wealth as the primary outcomes of faith, fundamentally misconstrues the purpose of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. It turns the gospel into a transactional relationship based on material gain rather than a transformative relationship based on faith and repentance in the finished work of Christ on the cross.

White’s continued blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, his promotion of the Kenosis heresy, and his deceptive use of the names of respected historic Christians such as Charles Spurgeon to lend credibility to his false teachings are deeply disturbing. By claiming alignment with sound theological bible teachers and preachers while simultaneously promoting teachings they would have vehemently opposed, White demonstrates a cunning ability to deceive.

So, in short, Todd White’s ministry is a troubling amalgamation of false teachings, blasphemous statements, and deceptive practices. His misuse of biblical doctrine, combined with his affiliation with known false teachers, his propagation of the prosperity gospel, and his history of unverified miracles, positions him as a significant deceiver within the professing Christian community. For discerning Christians, the call to vigilance and adherence to the true gospel is clear, necessitating a rejection of Todd White’s false teachings in favor of the unadulterated truth of Scripture.

Short of making a judgment call on his eternal state, I can unequivocally state that I would hate to be in Todd White’s shoes on judgment day.

But these, like irrational animals, creatures of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed, blaspheming about matters of which they are ignorant, will also be destroyed in their destruction, suffering wrong as the wage for their wrongdoing. They count it pleasure to revel in the daytime. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their deceptions, while they feast with you. —2 Peter 2:12-13

Justin Peters did all they could to reason biblically with these two men, yet one can’t help but see that these irrational men fit the description given by Peter in the verse above. Here’s Justin Peters and Jim Osman with defenders of charismaticism, Michael Brown and Sam Storms, starting at the 3:53:00 mark.
