Sinister (Not Minister) Todd Coontz: Super Peddler Who Makes Todd Bentley Seem As Angelic As Emma
The following is an article from Associated Content:
The first time I saw and heard Todd Coontz, I almost lost it! During one of my normal flipping through the channels romps, Todd was just getting into the zone on his, “Triple Favor Seed” sales pitch. Not the single favor or the double favor but the Todd Coontz T-R-I-P-L-E favor blessing from God. That means if you give into his ministry, you are going to receive three times the blessing. Yahoo! Since this type of spiritual gamesmanship has become the, “Status quo” for the Christian faith, it really didn’t strike a chord with me. What set things off was when he went into his slick as silk door to door sales frenzy by forcefully nudging everyone who didn’t have CASH to use their credit cards. His favorite hook is, “Your seeds determine your harvest!”
If you go to the Todd Coontz website, you will find various types of, “Sow a Seed” propositions that promise incredible ROIs. That’s Return On Investments for you non-investment types. Todd makes magnetic and enthralling appeals to people of the Christian Faith to sow into his ministry. He states if you want God to give you a promotion, hook you up with debt cancellation or if you need divine favor, the way to get it is to GIVE into his ministry! This is what the Christian faith has been reduced to? A bunch of greed driven prima donnas who care nothing about the church?
You’ve Got Two Minutes To Become God’s Next Millionaire… Only Two Minutes People! In July of 2008, Todd Coontz took his money grubbing show to Johannesburg, South Africa. There he joined forces with Benny Hinn in a “Miracle Crusade” of epic proportions. At some point during the crusade, Todd made an appeal that people of the Christian Faith are getting used to hearing. He claimed G-O-D was going to instantly turn attendees of the “Miracle Crusade” into millionaires and billionaires within 24 HOURS! Are you kidding me? This would be a good time to inject expletives, but since I don’t curse, I’ll keep it clean. God is going to do what? You read it right. He claimed God was going take the average Joe Schmoe flipping Burgers at McDonalds and transform him into a millionaire or billionaire! The catch? There wasn’t one single solitary catch! Actually, there were TWO! But they were so easy; no doubt the people who responded would definitely be counting their cash by that time tomorrow! By that time tomorrow they would be able to buy a new home, a new car and live the type of life God has called every Christian to live. By that time tomorrow they could own a private jet if they so chose. Here’s all they had to do…
First, they had to give Todd Coontz $1000 dollars. That’s right people of the Christian faith, if you want to become a millionaire or a billionaire; you no longer have to go to college. You don’t have to work hard or engage in sound financial investments. All you have to do is find someone with anointing of Todd Coontz, Peter Popoff, Robert Tilton or Mike Murdock to give your money to and your financial dreams will come true! The second thing they had to do was donate that $1000 in the next TWO MINUTES! That’s right folks, the window for that exceptional Todd Coontz blessing was only 120 seconds. If you didn’t get your transaction completed within that time frame, you had to get your money the old fashion way; you had to earn it!
According to witnesses, when the smooth Todd Coontz made that call to action, no less than a thousand people hurriedly scrambled to the pulpit to give a thousand dollars each. The “Miracle Crusade” workers didn’t flinch an in inch at the site of the stampede of Christian Faith people jockeying to make sure they got their money in before the 2 minute deadline. Those workers whipped out credit card machines faster than you could say, “Is God really going to make me a millionaire by this time tomorrow?” So Long Suckers! Uh, Uhm, I Mean, “Until We Meet Again People of The Christian Faith.”
By the time Todd Coontz and the “Miracle Crusade” team packed their credit card machines and were long gone, you would have expected to hear all kinds of testimonies of people who – some how by mighty miracles of God, came into millions and billions of dollars. It never happened! No one could find one single solitary person who became a millionaire or a billionaire by the hand of God in that 24-hour time span. Oh, wait a minute! This just in! We did find one millionaire, all praises be to G-O-D! Guess who it was? Drum roll please… It was Todd Coontz! Yes people of the Christian Faith, it was YOUR chosen vessel. The man you say is called by God to help believers cancel debt, get promotions and become rich.
Based on witnesses, Todd had over a thousand people give a $1000.00! I’m not a mathematician but if a thousand people give a thousand dollars, that’s a million buckaroos! Did Todd Coontz lie? No way, he’s a true man of gawd! So what was the problem? Although the people gave their money, THEY DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH FAITH! You see, Todd Coontz had enough Christian faith; that’s why he was the ONLY ONE who walked off with a million dollars!
The Christian Faith Has Lost Its Faith? It should be apparent by now that something is amiss! Anytime a slick dressed huckster can stand before a people who are supposed to be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit and trick them into believing that G-O-D is going to turn them into millionaires overnight, we are in trouble! Ever wonder what the people were thinking as the 24 hours slowly wound down to 23 Hours, 59 minutes and 58 seconds? I’ll tell you exactly what they were thinking, “Todd Coontz just scammed me!” Many of them walk away from Christ at that point. If you profess to be a follower of the Christian Faith, get used to this, its becoming par for the course. The question was, “Have sinisters like Todd Coontz helped people of the Christian Faith lose their minds?” The answer is, YES!”
