The danger with a false church like Bethel is evident in Vallotton trying to cloak religious concepts with occultic language, apparently to appeal to pagans, Satanists, superstitionists, and spiritists. Every time Bethel sparks a controversy by using Occultic ideas like Tarot cards, necromancy, or the like, its leadership will ultimately claim good intentions.
(Pulpit & Pen) Bethel ‘Church’ of Redding, California, has proven itself time and again to dabble in the occult. But in its latest dabbling with the devil, its pastor, Kris Vallotton, encouraged the use of ‘spirit guides.’
And now, their pastor is endorsing ‘Spirit Guides.’
Vallotton’s post entitled, Why Every Christian Has a Spirit Guide, begins by saying, “not all supernatural experiences or practices hail from the kingdom of darkness.”
Vollotton then complains that Christians misinterpret Matthew 24:24 as he tries to lower their defenses by explaining that “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect,” is abused to discount supernatural practices like using Spirit Guides.
