THE GURU OF GLAMOUR, BENNIE HINN (CON OF CONS)
AVVO - Benny Hinn—Benny Hinn is known around the world for his large healing crusades. His television show airs in over 100 countries, and during his time as an evangelist, Hinn claims to have seen people get healed from cancer and crippling diseases, and he even says he has seen a dead man resurrected.
While building his following, Hinn has earned quite a bit of money along the way. His ministry collects more than $200 million a year, and he’s admitted to his salary being over half a million. Hinn owns a private jet, lives in a $10 million house near the Pacific Ocean, stays in hotel rooms that cost thousands each night, and owns luxury vehicles. His lavish lifestyle was first exposed by Dateline NBC, and it’s now under investigation by the Senate.
Benny Hinn, you know him by the hairdo, enough to challenge Donald Trump for flyover is a TV charlatan who also like Pat Robertson claims to have God's personal cell phone number.
Must have, since he claims to talk to him all the time. Really, a lot of rollover minutes. With the money stupid people give him to blow he might as well just buy a cellphone company and the network and not worry about minutes.
Bennie Hinn has two, multi-million dollar homes from his ministry and claims them as tax exempt. Oh, and his only source of income is his ministry. He lives "beyond" living as a king, he's giving God a run for the money. Last time I checked he likes Rolls Royces (True-pun). Seems his wife had other ideas.
The wife of televangelist Benny Hinn has filed for divorce from the high-profile pastor, whose reputation as an advocate of “Prosperity Gospel" has attracted millions of followers and criticism from lawmakers and watchdog groups over his lavish lifestyle.
DIAL -A - BUSH
And do people really believe he talks to GOD? Some must be that stupid. We all know GOD hates technical stuff. He doesn't need a cellphone. He has Dial-A-Bush.com. When he communicates he just burns a bush. Believe me, no missed calls with "Burning Bush" and if you order today you get the "Amazing Grace ringtone free”!
Inquiring minds wish to know exactly what "prosperity gospel" means since it is not recognized by nor affiliated with any established denomination. He has had no formal training as a minister. Summing it up in parables, he is a self taught bovine excrement distributor, a con and many mainstream Christians consider him an embarrassment.
The spiritually designed high-collar bishop looking outfits he wears add to the image as a minister. He is all image. His spiel is that if you send him money it will lead to your success and financial fulfillment. It's true, he uses it and makes a killing, only you stay broke.
BORN IN THE HOLY LAND
Benny Hinn was born in Israel, raised in the Greek Orthodox Church, attended Roman Catholic schools as a child. No wonder he's nuts. He claims his childhood was plagued by a persistent stutter, the press consulted his childhood acquaintances. Unfounded, another miracle (contrived) similar to the dead chicken story by Jan Crouch.
PEYOTE DRIVEN MESSAGES
- Hinn has prophesied that God would destroy the homosexual community of America by fire "in the mid-nineties -- about '94 or '95, no later than that.”
- He also foretold that Fidel Castro would die during the 1990s.- The world would end by 1999.
- Hinn taught Adam, (see Eve and snakes) flew to the moon.
- He burps out that in his version of the great stories the Christian Trinity is actually God in nine persons, not three, because the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are each composed of trinities.
ARE PEOPLE THAT STUPID? - YES
He started preaching in Canada in the 1970s, TV was his strength.
He is in over 100 countries.
He is a faith healer and all he does is breath on you and you are healed allegedly curing diseases and congenital defects. Must be those Penicillin based lozenges.
His most famous born-againer (who are generally very prone to psychosomatic episodes) is Evander Holyfield who had the hole in his heart repaired by Hinn's healing powers. Nevertheless he could do nothing for Evander's hole in his ear. Mike Tyson bit quite a hole in Evander's ear. Benny bit a hole in Evander's wallet. I always liked Evander, he was a good clean champ, but well, not that bright to see he was being used. Just add the word "fool" to the resume.
Hinn's healings were effectively debunked in a 2002 report by NBC's Dateline who scoped him and a follow up BBC TV Special really blew the lid off things when they followed the healed who all had relapses. Those endorphins wore off. They are created in mass groups as a psychological hysteria as explained by the doctors and shrinks the BBC had testify.
Benny Hinn was a disciple of the infamous false teacher Kathryn Khulman, and he propagates the false doctrines that she taught. He has adopted other false teachings from Kenny Copeland and Ken Hagin who picked up the heretical Mormon doctrine that all men can become a god. Benny also teaches the heretical doctrine that YAHSHUA was born- again in Hell. He is a leading “word faith" false teacher
In November 2004, the CBC Television show The Fifth Estate did a special titled "Do You Believe in Miracles" on the apparent transgressions committed by Benny Hinn's ministry.
With the aid of hidden cameras and crusade witnesses, the producers of the show demonstrated Hinn’s apparent misappropriation of funds, his fabrication of the truth, and the way in which his staff chose crusade audience members to come on stage to proclaim their miracle healings.
In particular, the investigation highlighted the fact that the most desperate miracle seekers who attend a Hinn crusade—the quadriplegics, the brain-damaged, virtually anyone with a visibly obvious physical condition—are never allowed up on stage; those who attempt to get in the line of possible healings are intercepted and directed to return to their seats. At one Canadian service, hidden cameras showed a mother who was carrying her Muscular Dystrophy-afflicted daughter, Grace, being stopped by two screeners when they attempted to get into the line for a possible blessing from Hinn.
The screeners asked the mother if Grace had been healed, and when the mother replied in the negative, they were told to return to their seats; the pair got out of line, but Grace, wanting “ astor Benny to pray for her," asked her mother to support her as she tried to walk as a show of "Her faith in action," according to the mother. After several unsuccessful attempts at walking, the pair left the arena in tears, both mother and daughter visibly upset at being turned aside and crying as they explained to the undercover reporters that all Grace had wanted was for Hinn to pray for her, but the staffers rushed them out of the line when they found out Grace had not been healed.
A week later at a service in Toronto, Baptist evangelist Justin Peters, who wrote his Masters in Divinity thesis on Benny Hinn and has attended numerous Hinn crusades since 2000 as part of his research for his thesis and for a seminar he developed about the Word of Faith movement entitled A Call for Discernment, also demonstrated to the hidden cameras that “ People who look like me”—Peters has cerebral palsy, walks with arm-crutches, and is obviously and visibly disabled—“are never allowed on stage.
It's always somebody who has some disability or disease that cannot be readily seen." Like Grace and her mother, Peters was quickly intercepted as he came out of the wheelchair section (there is one at every crusade, situated at the back of the audience, far away from the stage, and never filmed for Hinn's TV show) in an attempt to join the line of those waiting to go onstage, and was told to take a seat.
This segment was later edited with new footage and shown on Dateline: NBC in November 2005.
MEN OF GOD DON'T DIVORCE
Suzanne Hinn filed the papers in Orange County Superior Court on Feb. 1, citing irreconcilable differences, after more than 30 years of marriage. The papers note the two separated on Jan. 26 and that Hinn has been living in Dana Point, a wealthy coastal community in southern Orange County.
"Pastor Benny Hinn and his immediate family were shocked and saddened to learn of this news without any previous notice," Benny Hinn Ministries said Thursday in a statement. "Although Pastor Hinn has faithfully endeavored to bring healing to their relationship, those efforts failed and were met with the petition for divorce that was filed without notice.”
It seems the good book people do more sowing than reaping. And many of them truly believe that regardless of what they do they will be forgiven. All of those clowns are right back on TV and the morons continue to send them money. Maybe they think they are too big to fail. You see Religion is trying to work it's way into Politics and learning a few things at the same time. Too big to fail.
Three years later they remarried (CBN Newsflash) and reconciled admitting she was now cured of her erratic behavior due to popping too many pills. Read the whole tear jerking prayerful story on CBN.
In 2007, United States Senator Chuck Grassley announced an investigation of Hinn's ministry by the United States Senate Committee on Finance. In a letter to BHM, Grassley asked for the ministry to divulge financial information to the Senate Committee on Finance to determine if Hinn made any personal profit from financial donations, and requested that Hinn’s ministry make the information available.
The investigation also scrutinized five other televangelists: Paula White, Kenneth Copeland, Eddie L. Long, Joyce Meyer, and Creflo Dollar. In December 2007, Hinn said he would not respond to the inquiry until 2008. The ministry subsequently responded to the inquiry, and Grassley said that "... Benny Hinn engaged in open and honest dialogue with committee staff. They have not only provided responses to every question but, in the spirit of true cooperation, also have provided information over and above what was requested.
The investigation concluded in 2011 with no penalties or findings of wrongdoing. The final report raised questions about personal use of church-owned luxury goods and a lack of financial oversight on the ministries' boards, which are often populated with family and friends of the televangelist. Hinn’s group reported to the committee that it complied with tax regulations and had made changes in compensation and governance procedures.
Translation: Good accountant’s and cleverly hidden money get away with warnings, any of us would be in jail. My belief is that a good Jewish prosecutor would have done better and hung his butt out to dry.
