Oklahoma Pastor Spits Into Man’s Eye During Service

A pastor from Oklahoma, USA, has released an apology for spitting into a man’s eye during a recent sermon.

During one of his recent sermons, Michael Todd, a Transformation Church Pastor, was referencing the Bible passage Mark 8:22-25, which tells the story of the blind man of Bethsaida, when he did the horrifying act.

During the passage, Jesus rubs his spit into the eyes of a man who was born blind and restored his eyesight.

As Todd was preaching, he cupped his own spit in his hand and rubbed it across the face of a person that was called on the stage.

He said:

I watched it back and it was disgusting. That was a distraction to what I was really trying to do. I was really trying to make the word come alive and for people to see the story, but yesterday it got too live. And I own that. I just want people to know that we want to help people. We want people to see Jesus. We want people to feel loved. We want people who are desperate to be able to find hope. And I’m passionate about that. So much so that I try to do extreme things to help people get it. Yesterday it crossed a line.

Todd also confirmed that he called the man that he spit on to talk about what he did with him during the sermon.

Joking about the guy, he said that the guy was bald before he spit on him and he was still bald today. 

He added:

I just called him. He was bald before I spit on him, and he’s still bald today. So, no miracle here. Next time I’ll rethink it and do something different.

Todd is the leading pastor at the Transformation Church, which is located in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
