I’ve heard a lot of ridiculous and outlandish stories from some of the worst modern-day Montanist heretics on the planet–from Kat Kerr to Todd White to Todd Bentley. These so-called “prophets” and “apostles” always have amazing stories to tell of supernatural events that happened to them–but there is not a single one of them that has ever been verified or even verifiable.
To be clear, when the real Apostles performed Miracles, they were done in such a way that everyone could see and no one could doubt. And they were done for the purpose of demonstrating to the world that Jesus was who He claimed to be and that the Words He spoke through the Apostles were authoritative.
None of that can be said for today’s phonies.
Duncan Smith, a self-described “apostle” and founder of Catch the Fire Ministries, recently told a bizarre story about how he and his team were “supernaturally transported” by God–their entire vehicle filled with a dozen or so people–to a remote area that he claims was supposed to be five hours away in less than two hours. Apparently, God picked up their van and just swooped it on through without them noticing.
Of course, the claim is absurd and what’s far more likely is that he miscalculated the actual time and distance this village was.
