I find it interesting when people are forced to take down videos, presumably by the very people who are exposed by the footage. This seems to have happened with the above – the video is no longer available.
If you take a look at this video, it seems clear enough that the “Morningstar Church” led by Rick Joyner, has embraced a kind of weirdness that seems very unholy and very unscriptural. It seems that the idea is for everyone to lay hands on one another and the expectation is that in the process some strange manifestations and strange spiritual impartations presumably from God will take place, while many enter into a kind of trance-like state under the influence of the tribal drumbeat.
This and some other clips I have seen of “Morningstar” remind me of the video clips of saw of the followers of the late Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh who practiced “dynamic meditation” – a kind of trancelike dancing to repetitive drumbeats.
Rick Joyner is the guy who is at work to help restore Todd Bentley to the ministry. Presumably, once a semi-plausible story of repentance concerning Todd’s adulteries and other sins can be put out there, people like Rick Joyner are going to use their influence to relaunch Todd Bentley on his career of imparting spirits to the people of God.
God help us.
