“Are we okay with supporting and promoting a ministry where leaders make such blasphemous and outlandish claims about divine encounters tied to social media popularity? It’s time to draw the line in the sand—if you’re church plays Bethel music, it’s time to leave.”
(The Dissenter) Cory Asbury, a Bethel-affiliated “worship” artist, recently took to Instagram to make claims that leave one questioning not just his theology but his grip on reality. According to Asbury, hitting the milestone of 500 thousand followers on Instagram was not just a social media triumph but a prophetic and divine appointment….
He claimed that Jesus appeared to him—in “bodily form”—to impart to him that reaching this exact number of followers would result in “incredible” blessings—including a “guaranteed ticket into heaven,” a life devoid of worries, and, if he hits a million followers, a palatial mansion in heaven complete with luxury cars.
