On Sunday, a pastor at a megachurch in Oklahoma delivered a sermon of biblical proportions, using his own saliva as a visual aid to convey a message about how receiving a “vision from God could become distasteful.”
Michael Todd, a 34-year-old man who leads the Tulsa Transformation Church, was on stage with another man, identified as his younger brother by TMZ. After spitting into the palm of his hand, Todd said, “This is where most people wouldn’t face Jesus anymore. What most people would do is turn away. Coughing and spitting more, Todd turned to the man next to him, telling the crowd that God would ask each of them if they would continue to stand “when having the vision, or receiving it, might become disagreeable”. Todd then rubbed his hands together and methodically smeared his saliva into the man’s eyes.
“And do you hear and see people’s responses?” continued the pastor, above the cries of disgust from the audience. “What I’m telling you: how you just reacted is how the people in your life will react when God does the right thing for the Miracle.”
