(Anita Brady – Record Searchlight) “[Bethel] has the goal of infiltrating all aspects of society (the Seven Mountains Mandate) and locally/globally influence it to their version of Christian faith. Angel feathers and gold dust, grave sucking, fire tunnels, faith healings, and praying in tongues are on the agenda of this ‘church.’”
Mid-April, Bethel will hold its fourth annual Medical Healing Conference in Redding. Be assured the word “medical” is used to try to make this conference seem legitimate. It is not. In their original description (it has recently been changed online), they say: “Come and find out through worship, educational lectures, practical sessions, group discussions, a case conference and prophetic ministry with peers and colleagues. Be trained, equipped and activated as a healthcare professional while learning to marry the natural and supernatural gifts of healing.”
Somehow, they are providing continuing medical education units to medical personnel who attend this conference. Last year, they initially offered units thru UC Irvine. After UC Irvine was contacted about this farcical event, they rescinded Bethel’s unit accreditation. This year, the accreditation organization (ACCME) was contacted about the offered units. They have opened a formal inquiry but no action may occur until after the conference is over. And the organization says its findings will be confidential.
