American Pastor Michael Todd Under Fire For Wiping Saliva On Congregant’s Face During Sermon Even As The Coronavirus Pandemic Rages
Pastor Micheal Todd criticized for wiping siliva on congregants face
Pastor Michael Todd of Transformation Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, makes a point about vision after lathering the eyes of a congregant with globs of his own spit during a sermon on Jan. 16, 2022.

Before the demonstration, Todd detailed that as he was preparing his message for the sermon this week, God used the words of late singer Johnny Nash’s song “I Can See Clearly Now” to inspire him.

“I began to listen to those words. And God said, ‘Michael, the past two years have been like raining over people’s lives.’ And he said they need to prophetically declare that, ‘I can see clearly now that the rain is gone,'” Todd told congregants.

“Some of you all have had friends that you didn’t see who they really were. You were befriending obstacles. You were not able to see clearly because of the damage, the frustration, the hurt, the pain, the trauma. But now, God’s saying, ‘You can see clearly all the obstacles.'”

He referenced the Bible verse Mark 8:23, which highlights the story of Jesus healing a blind man at Bethsaida by spitting into his eyes privately.

“He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When He had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, ‘Do you see anything?'” the Scripture states.

Todd highlighted how Jesus chose wisely not to embarrass the blind man by spitting in his eye publicly.

“He leads him. watch how good God is,” Todd said. “He doesn’t embarrass this man ’cause he doesn’t spit on him in front of everybody. He takes him out. You thought when God separated you, it was a punishment, but it was really protection. The reason He took him out of the village was because the work that He was about to do, others would misinterpret it.”

“So He had to get him outside of what was comfortable. He wasn’t going to not spit on him,” he continued. “He just didn’t do it in front of everybody ’cause he didn’t want their reputation or His reputation to be tarnished by what he had to go through to receive the miracle.”

Todd asks an unidentified male standing on to the stage next to him with his eyes closed. The pastor acts contrary to the wisdom he said Jesus demonstrated and turned the unidentified congregant into a spectacle. The congregant has reportedly been identified as Todd’s younger brother.

He asked the man if he was “good.” Todd then hawked a loogie from his throat and spat it in his hand as an audible cringe erupted from the congregation. Then, he hawked a second loogie and told the congregation to watch.

“He can’t see, but He can hear,” he said.

“And this is the moment where many of us are in because God is doing something, and we hear Him changing. We hear Him even in your prayer. And in this time, He’s changing something. You don’t see it clearly yet. But you hear,” added Todd.

“And this is where most people would not face Jesus anymore. What most people would do is turn away,” he said, hawking a third loogie, which he spat in his hand.

“What I’m telling you, just as he’s physically standing here knowing what’s coming, God’s saying, ‘Can you physically, spiritually and emotionally be able to stand when getting the vision and receiving it might get nasty,'” Todd said.

The pastor rubbed his phlegm together and lathered it across the churchgoer’s eyes as the spittle dangled from his face, forcing the parishioner to wipe some of the spittle from his mouth.

Many onlookers who watched the demonstration from outside the church expressed disgust over Todd’s actions, which triggered a mountain of online memes.

People have been raising concerns about Todd’s theology for years and expressed concern about the man Todd rubbed spit on during the service.
