While stressing that "receiving a vision from God might get nasty," Todd rubbed the spit in his hands all over the face of a parishioner who was standing next to him.

The audience was disgusted, but Todd insisted that he rubbed his spit all over the man's face for a reason, and to illustrate his point about God and miracles.

"If your pastor rubs spit on your face (looking at you, Mike Todd), find a new pastor," Rev. Dr. Chuck Currie wrote in a tweet.
