A pastor at a megachurch in Oklahoma apologized Monday after a video of him rubbing spit into a person’s face to reveal how “receiving imaginative and prescient from God may get nasty” went viral.
Footage from Sunday reveals Michael Todd of Tulsa’s Transformation Church coughing and spitting into his hand, then wiping the spit onto the face of a person subsequent to him on stage.
“Do you hear and see the responses of the folks?” he stated, as members of the viewers gasped audibly. “What I’m telling you, is the way you simply reacted is how the folks in your life will react when God is doing what it takes for the Miracle.”
“I watched it again, and it was disgusting,” he stated in a video, noting that the person was his brother. “Like, that was gross. I need to validate all people’s emotions. That was a distraction to what I used to be actually attempting to do. … I personal that.”
Todd’s title was trending on Twitter on Monday as he confronted backlash for performing the stunt, notably as COVID-19 instances surge in Oklahoma and across the nation.
