Benny Hinn in Uganda

posted by David Kuo

I saw this poster on the wall of the cancer clinic today:
hinn.jpg
Yes, this cancer clinic:
hospital.jpg
And yes, this IS the same Benny Hinn who sent out a request for his followers to pay for his new Gulfstream jet.

Benny Hinn has already taken delivery on a new Gulfstream jet, and wants you to pay for it, because “it is the only we Pastor Benny can continue to go as God directs.” If you don’t pony up for Benny Hinn’s jet, “safety will plummet,” Pastor Benny will be plumb tuckered out, and most importantly, untold numbers of precious souls who might have been saved will go to hell. All because of you. But if you do help pay for Benny Hinn’s jet, he’ll put your name in the special prayer cabin he’s going to use as he races across the planet aboard, ahem, “Dove One,” fulfilling the Great Commission from “the highest prayer tower in the world … where he will intercede for you… .” And God will hear him better because he’ll be 40,000 feet closer to heaven. …Benny Hinn says in his appeal for the rest of the $6 million downpayment on the jet, “What we do for the sake of the Gospel, we must do now!”

My only thought is that if Mr. Hinn takes so much a single Ugandan schilling from the desperately poor and sick people longing, begging, for a miracle it will make him a spiritual predator, a spiritual terrorist.
And so my plea to Christian leaders like James Dobson, Richard Land, Tony Perkins, and to groups like the American Family Association who recently sent out this impassioned plea:

The TV Land network has a new feature starting this Saturday (Feb. 16) called “OHMIGOD, That’s so 80′s weekend.” The series features movies from the 1980′s. “OHMIGOD” is an irreverent exclamation for “Oh, my God!”

…take a stand against this spiritual crime… take a stand against the exploitation of sick Ugandans, starving Ugandans, desperate Ugandans… denounce the travesty of Benny Hinn in this country because that would be a whole lot closer to something Jesus would do.
Do it for Charles and for his parents:

And Senator Grassley – you might want to ask Mr. Hinn about this should he deign to appear before your committee.

David, my dear David,
There is a huge world of false teachers in the Christian world. (And no they are not just Liberals and Progessives.)
I’m truly sorry, that Benny Hinn and his “ilk” have a voice in the world you are trying to reach.
Hank Hanegraaff and the Christian Research Institute literally exist to expose men like Benny Hinn and those that peddle this thing called “Word of Faith.” As well as many other false and heretical teachings and belief systems.
CRI is located at equip.org. The website of CRI. It is the organization founded by Walter Martin.
Hanegraaff:
What’s wrong with the “Faith” movement? Its leaders include many of the most popular television evangelists. Its adherents compose a large percentage of charismatic evangelical Christians. Its emphases on faith, the authority of the believer, and the absolute veracity of Scripture could appear to be just what today’s church needs. And yet, I am convinced that this movement poses one of the greatest contemporary threats to orthodox Christianity from within. Through it, cultic theology is being increasingly accepted as true Christianity.
For more go here:
http://www.equip.org/site/c.muI1LaMNJrE/b.2548381/k.973E/Bible_Answer_Man.htm
///
Apologetics is a 360% situation 24/7. It is just as important to hold accountable things done in the name of the Church body, as it is to oppose homosexuality or abortion.
Hinn is a horrible man. In fact probably the worse kind there is in the Christian milieu.
Jesus drove this kind of man out of the temple.
Hanegraaff wrote a book: Christianity in Crisis, to expose the fraud and heresy in Hinn and the founders of this religious direction also called “Prosperity Gospel” and “Name It and Claim It.” It is truly horrifying. I had many friends buy into this false teachings with tragic results.
It goes like this: “If,” you “say” ANYTHING, you get it. The Lord, say the Word of Faith people like Hinn, has to react to your “words” because words are carriers of eternal powers. Even power that can control God and what “He” has to “do.” Your “faith” in words can obtain for you ANYTHING. Literally anything!!!! You can “speak” life into your life, OR, suffering and death.
“I could just die if I don’t get that slice of pie.” That statement just “spoke” death into my life. “I want to be healed.” Well, if YOU have enough faith in the words you spoke, you will be healed.
But, there is a catch . . . “if” you don’t have “enough” faith, if you come up short in that department, you lose.
“Don’t blame the Word of Faith Pastors,” oh no, it is YOUR fault, that you didn’t have enough faith that you stay, sick get sick, or are poor and needy. God is waiting to make you wealthy, healthy and powerful, if you only faith enough to demand it from Him with the effectiveness of “words.”
So, if you come to Hinn, or any numbers of these “Prosperity Gospel” leaders, AND YOU DON’T GET HEALED, it has nothing to do with Hinn and the Word of Faith preachers et al, it is YOUR FAULT.
Oh and by the way . . . the more money you send in to these ministries, the more money God will “bless your seed” with.
Also, called the Ten Fold doctrine. One buck in, God gives ten dollars in return.
And so on and so on.
Hinn is as bad as anything the Progressives mangle in a quest for power and authority. Actually, in my honest opinion, he’s worse.
Let it be noted that the Lord said:
“My people perish for a lack of KNOWLEDGE.”
The Apostles: “Test all things . . .” And, “study to show yourself approved . . .”

David, thank you for these pictures. They are like a spear in my heart and I only wish I had realized what a monster Hinn is years ago. I first learned about Hinn in one of his books from the book club Crossings. My family and I followed him around the country and he layed hands on me, my husband and daughter. Since then I have been sicker than ever, almost dying a few times, my husband is unemployed for the fourth time and my daughter has gone South. We are fortunate to still have a roof over our heads but these last 8 years have been hell. When you give money to Hinn you are really giving money to Satan himself! BEWARE!

Yeah, the ‘Seed of Faith’ movement seems mostly to be a scam. And its bulletproof. As noted above, since the person’s faith is the key, if it doesn’t work, it isn’t because, well, it /DOESN’T WORK/, it is because your faith is insufficient. You didn’t give enough ‘seed money’. So, worse than being bad theology, worse than diverting people from useful things they could be doing for their problems, it demonizes anyone with troubles, because, if the faithful have their problems solved, then those who have troubles aren’t faithful, right?
I mean, didn’t the Bible have a whole book dealing with this..mm.. manure? (Job)

Yes David – we must stand against these false and self absorbed “preachers”. I’ve known a priest or two of this ilk. All are smooth talkers and amoral in their dealings with money.
Donny, you and I are in agreement on this one.
There are also lots of other “Children’s Cancer” kind of scams all over the place. Where my money goes is something I research pretty carefully.
Righteous anger can be habit forming and then there is just self-righteous rage. Fine line between the two. A friend once told me there is no such thing as moral outrage – rage cannot be moral – was his view. After studying Gandhi – I came to the same conclusion.
So what to do with this almost visceral anger at such people as Benny Hinn. There’s the moral problem for me.
Perhaps being knowledgeable is the weapon we must use. Knowledge and facts go a long way. Pictures such as this go a long way. Rage never works. It simply creates reciprocal rage.

Hinn is opposed by the same voices that I present oppose Liberal and Progresive theology. The Gospel of Christ and the witness and testimony of the Apostles. Hinn is no worse than what The Left is currently attempting to do with “Christianity.” Peddling false doctrine for political and financial wealth looks just the same to me.

c kitty,
Neither Jesus nor His Apostles ever heard the word “Christianity.” The Apostles, Evangelicals one and all, (Evangel means: The Gospel), were called Christians in Antioch, but the followers of Jesus preached the Gospel and wrote about people and Churches that made mistakes wilfully or not to get back on track.
Look to Jesus and the Apostles for what to follow. People become “Christians” in spite of the sins they’ve committed. Don’t look to people for perfection. “Contending for the faith,” usually has to be done in the Church first.
They (the Apostles) didn’t waver from the Way, the Truth, or the Life worth holding fast to. Their words were written and preserved for a reason.
Jesus mentioned Hinn types. And the Apostles, who were taught so many things that John says many books couldn’t hold all of it, wrote about many other kinds of people that would be within the Church, but needed to be avoided and not followed.
“Good Christians” turn people off too. The Apostle were not killed for being Hinn types (or Liberals).
The New Testament is not a hard read. Don’t believe the opinions to the contrary. There are too many good translations out there now. Those Christians that follow the Spirit and guidelines of the Gospel and New Testament witness, have been turning people on for quite some centuries. That won’t stop until Jesus wants it to.

Believe me, I am NOT a Benny Hinn apologist. Much of his ministry seems very dubious at best. However, I think we should be careful if we criticize other Christians to do so with grace and justice. Specifically: the block of text that David shows as a quote appears to be a quote not from Hinn’s own website but from another beliefnet.com blog. That’s where the “sent out a request” link took me anyway. If it is a direct quote (as theh post seems to imply), Benny’s folks seem to have (wisely for their part) taken that page down.
It frustrates me when I see ministries or teachers I admire and trust ripped to shreds on blogs with misrepresentations, misquotes, and stuff taken out of context. So I think it’s reasonable for me to try to avoid doing the same thing to Christian ministers I don’t trust, like Benny Hinn.
Jesus may in fact have “denounced the travesty of Benny Hinn” as you say – and maybe would even want us to do the same today – but what he actually commanded was for us to care for the poor and hungry; focus on positive action rather than negative (as you do in your subsequent post – thanks). I do agree that if one was compelled to take a vocal stand AGAINST something, the excesses of Benny Hinn are a better target then “OMIGOD that’s so 80′s”. Let’s just do so without misrepresenting the other side. Peace! Steve

And again, what would tell you that the Dobsons or the Tony Perkins’ of this evangelical movement would do anything serious about actual problems? They have been silent on torture (if not openly endorsing it). Their response to poverty is largely to view it as a moral problem.

I too am an atheist, but this behavior exhibited by Hinn is dispicable! Talk about the lowest, of the low, this man has no shame, and it really becomes fair game to question his qualities as a “Christian,” did Jesus go around stealing money from the poor to peddle his own backdoor pyrimid scheme? Probably not, in fact, Jesus was probably chided by corrupt preachers because he didn’t participate in disgusting activities.
Also in response to a comment made above by Kelly S:
You said “change,” and I just have this terrible headache from the nutjob Obama supporter next door, so from now on, let’s refer to the old “change,” as “progress.” That way we can’t confuse Obama’s “change,” with real “progress.”
If they wanted “change,” we could bus a bunch of college Obama-ites over there to talk those poor folk up, “progress” probably wouldn’t be made, because after all–they’re all talk, and no chalk…erm…I am a Nader supporter.

Typical Christian, as far as I’m concerned. Those who dont operate this way or who might be reviled by it are rare, in my experience. I applaud your words, Mr. Kuo.
If it isn’t money these chislers want, it’s political power. Look at what John Hagee is doing, in cahoots with Israel and Israel-not-America-Firsters, urging war with Iran! Even now, after the Dec NIE. Hagee advocating that Americans die in a preemptive proxy war now to avoid a possible future threat to a foreign nation, something that hasn’t materialized and the possibility of which has been discounted by 16 of our intelligence agencies.
Mr. Kuo, why aren’t you outing Hagee as a spiritual terrorist as well? Does taking a few shillings from poor Ugandans pale in comparison to the millions of lives that would be lost in a nuclear war with Iran? Not to mention the 35 million who will suffer 50X the Nagasaki radiation in the fallout from Iran to Australia? (Russia completed the delivery of 82 tonnes of uranium for the power plants a month ago.)
It is so much easier to react to one human, isn’t it, and not humanity. But in the depth of destruction the official Christian Church and Evangelicals are advocating, they have become apostles of the most diabolical horror. Seventy million Evangelicals in the US follow these false Gods, these Armani-clad Christian leaders who claim alone to be the true interpreters of Bibles rewritten in the 20C to advance their political aims. You need only compare them to the original King James version of the Bible to see the hidden purpose.

The present day churches beg constantly for money rather than having faith. There is no difference between their churches and a night club.
Benny Hinn is not a Lebanese. His father is a Palestinian who was living in Haifa. His mother is an Armenian from Lebanon. Benny Hinn consults the medium and his healer, Kathryn Khulman – the spiritist.
Beware, it is written, that false prophets will preach in the last days.

I, for one, have not been bashful in my criticism of Benny Hinn and other proponents of the “prosperity gospel.” Most recently, in the Jan. 6 edition of the Atlanta Journal Constitution (ajc.com), I am quoted by Christopher Quinn as saying “I find the prosperity gospel to be repugnant, and I believe it teaches another gospel that is not found in the New Testament.”
I find myself in adamant disagreement with almost everything Benny Hinn says except “and” and “the.” I believe that the prosperity gospel does great damage to the Gospel of our Savior and often exploits the most helpless and marginalized, both in this country and overseas. Please consider this response as yet another attempt to distance the true Gospel from the other gospel propounded by the prosperity “hucksters.”

I do believe that many of the evangelicals are living way outside the limits of what we need to be comfortable in this life. I do have problems with a lot of what I am hearing and seeing in the media. It is fine to live a comfortable lifestyle but in many cases it has reached the proportions of an outrageous indulgent lifestyle. Bear in mind, that the bible warns us of false prophets..I can not judge, but God will judge them and all of us at the appropriate time. In the meantime, we must be wise and have a discerning eye when it comes to giving our money away to any of these ministers. I do not understand why many of these ministers have to build small cities, buildings, recreational areas, parks, in their name….is it ego ? I would like to see those monies spent on the hungry and the poor. I do believe that they should be investigated and watched about their spending, and I also think it does not bode well for any minister to ask for your money in return for prayers and petitions. In the meantime, we as Christians must be wise and vigilent in our response to them.

Yes, I do have a problem with the spending of these ministries. In the final analysis, God can bring them down..He gave it all to them and He can take it all away.

They are not worthy. What make them believe that they deserve so much, yet the son of God had so little.

Bravo for an accurate and poignant article. What is sad is that people are actually defending a spiritual shark like Hinn. The only way Hinn images Jesus is in his own arrogant and predatory mind.
Jesus actually said to sell all you have and give to the poor. The closest verse in the Bible that I can relate to Hinn’s so-called ministry is “Jesus wept.”

Now, desperate people must have something to hang on to and that is what makes them blind. I say hereby that i believe in jesus that he was send by god jehovah to die for our sins because he loves mankind even myself how sinful i am. So i am not perfect but at least i don’t sell bullshit in the name of god to other people. that’s the worst part that benny hinn destroys peoples lives and because he does it in gods name that makes it even more sadistic than the holocaust.

I also was skeptical of Benny Hinn until I had the pleasure of being at one of his ministries. I have never heard a man explain the word of God the way he did. He is an awesome preacher and teacher. Yes, he may be buying a plane but if he did not have one he could not have held the ministry in Tenn. as the airplanes were being grounded for defect. Thank God he was able to fly in on his own plane. As far as money I have never been anywhere where they didn’t take up an offering. He told us it cost 1/2 million dollars to be on TBN so I guess the man needs the money to operate…He is ceo of his company and gets a salary just like every other CEO…As far as the poor giving money that is their blessing and believe me God will enrich their lives. If you ever go to a Benny Hinnn conference you will change your mind. I did …love yah pastor Benny

I agree with Betsy. I was so skeptical when I was asked to go to a Benny Hinn crusade. Let me say this… It was wonderful. The presence of the Lord was all over that place. That man never touched one person or shoved one person down. I was a Nazarene who didn’t believe in speaking in tongues and all that and when that man said Let the fire fall and I was way in the back of the collisium and realized I was on the ground. Don’t tell me that wasn’t the power of the Holy Spirit moving through that place. We the people are who brought the Holy Spirit there, they are hungry and seeking, they are expecting and it’s when you open your heart and believe it’s then you will recieve. I would never be the one to say Benny is fake or judge any man. We will be a countable for judging. This man gives God ALL the glory in all things. If you doubt go to a crusade like I did. You will change your mind and it will touch your life. It did mine. People were being healed as we stood in line. In Matthew 21:22 says anything you ask and believe you shall recieve. I believe this is what was happening. May God bless Benny Hinn.

Benny Hinn needs to repent, for using the gospel as a means of gain for himself…Everything Benny Hinn does is total anti-scriptural, we are not a people seeking signs and wonders, we are to be people seeking God alone, the greatest miracle on earth right now is Christ saving His people and the work of regeneration. If anyone understands the depravation of man and how evil sin is, we would be in awe of God for saving us, If God never does another thing for us, the mere fact that He saved us(if we are truly saved) is enough to humble ourselves in the prescence of this Great and Awesome God. Why are we still looking for more miracles to convince us of God. Benny Hinn doesn’t need to run in this world with such luxuries, Did Christ himself show that kind of example….? There had to be some form of luxuries in His time…no He never used those means…why is Benny better..? We better read our bibles and make sure that what we are seeing and hearing some of these preachers say and teach…Does the Bible confirm this and is there a example of Christ or any of the great men of God doing the same? Let us not be so easily decieved, we have the word of God that is a lamp unto our feet!

This is the fact my friends, Jesus said, if he preach and heal in my Name let him. See Luke 10:1-20).
whatever this passage means, we can be certain it doesn’t mean that gospel preachers are to refrain from exposing false teachers and false religions. The text affords no ground for that whatever. Gospel preachers are to charge false teachers ”that they teach no other doctrine,” (1 Tim. 1:3). Their duty is to “rebuke” and “exhort,” (2 Tim. 4:2). Every gospel preacher and every Christian must imitate the attitude of Paul who has ”set for the defense of the gospel,” (Phil. 1:17). In regard to those religions, individuals or theological systems not divinely authorized, Jesus said: “Every plant, which my heavenly Father bath not planted, shall be rooted up,” (Matt. 15:7-14). Hence, Jesus never endorsed the rationale of silence or tolerance of anything morally or religiously wrong. Please look at self before another I ask this in Christs name, May His peace and love always Abide in you.
Philippians 1,18(14-18)The former (preaching Christ from envy and rivalry) proclaim Christ
-from selfish ambition,
-not sincerely,
-because they think they can cause trouble for me (Paul) in my imprisonment.
Mk 9,38-41′Whosoever confesses that “Jesus is the Son of God” has God living in him”‘ (1 John 4:15).
We have an obligation, before God, to “expound unto them the way of God more accurately.” The concern is not to prove “us” to be right and all others to be wrong, but for the safety of priceless souls. It is not done for boasting and seeking dominion over others. It is a matter of keeping our trust as good stewards and caring enough for the alien sinner to help him understand what he needs to do to have the everlasting benediction of God. It springs from a sincere desire to have all men to obey him who is the “author of eternal salvation to all them that obey him.”
A love for truth and lost souls compels us to warn that when Jesus comes in judgment he will take vengeance on “them that obey not the gospel” (2 Thess. 1:7­8).
We must keep in mind that there is one faith (Eph. 4:5). Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). Paul told Timothy to “charge some that they teach no other doctrine” (1 Tim. 1:3). Paul warned:
If any man teacheth a different doctrine, and consenteth not to sound words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; he is puffed up, knowing nothing, but doting about questionings and disputes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, wranglings of men corrupted in mind and bereft of the truth, supposing that godliness is a way of gain (1 Tim. 6:3­5)
2-sin against Holy Spirit
Mat 12,31-32(22-32)
Mk 3,22-30(why -30!)Jesus was baptized because He had to fulfill the Old Testament requirements for entering into the priesthood. He was a priest after the order of Melchizedek (Psalm 110:4; Heb. 5:8-10; 6:20). Priests offered sacrifice to God on behalf of the people. Jesus became a sacrifice for our sin (1 Pet. 2:21; 2 Cor. 5:21) in His role as priest. According to the Old Testament, in order for a priest to be consecrated as a priest, He had to be washed with water (Lev. 8:6; Exodus 29:4, Matt. 3:15) and anointed with oil (Lev. 8:12; Exodus 29:7; Matt. 3:16). Both of these were bestowed upon Jesus at His baptism. Additionally, He may have needed to be 30 years old – (Num. 4:3).
The oil is representative of the Holy Spirit who descended upon Jesus at His baptism (Matt. 3:16). It was after His baptism that He began His ministry and started performing miracles. He did His miracles by the power of the Holy Spirit who had come upon Him at His baptism. The Pharisees – who knew that Jesus’ miracles validated His words and ministry (see John 11:45-48) – were attempting to discredit Jesus’ Messiahship by saying that His works were by the devil and not by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, when the Pharisees accused Jesus of casting out demons by the power of Satan, they were blaspheming the Holy Spirit by whom Jesus performed His miracles. This is unforgivable because it struck at the very heart of the redemptive work of God in Christ. It struck at the very nature of Jesus’ ministry of redemption, testimony, and teaching. Jesus was ministering in the power of the Holy Spirit Himself, fulfilling the divine plan of God to provide a sacrifice for our sins (John 3:16; 1 John 4:10). The Pharisees were attributing this to demonic activity. This is a great blasphemy. Wwho has been born again (John 3:7), made a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17), and received eternal life (John 10:27-28) actually commit the unforgivable sin? He cannot. Jesus Himself said that we have eternal life, not conditional life: “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one shall snatch them out of My hand.” Besides, it says in 2 Cor. 5:17 that the Christian is a new creation in Christ. We are different, no longer slaves to the old nature (Rom. 6:14). We are regenerated by the Holy Spirit.
There is no biblical support for a believer committing this sin. It just hasn’t happened. Also, if you are worried that you may have committed the sin and can’t be forgiven, then don’t be concerned. If you are worrying about it, then you haven’t committed it. If you are worried about it, then that is a sign that you have not committed it. If you had, you wouldn’t be concerned.
3- Judging
Mt-7,1-2
Rom 2,1-2
I Co 4,1-5
Simply, You are to abstain from judging a “fellow Christians” in matters that are non-essential. You are not to avoid fellowship with him, or ignore him. Instead you are to accept, to love, and to be in harmony with him. Will you do that? Will you decide to love your brother even though he doesn’t believe the same as you? Will you ask the Lord to forgive you of your judgmental attitudes? Seek the Lord and His abounding love so that you might show it to your brother. Amen.
God is a stickler for the details of his law. A quick reminder of Nadab, Abihu, Uzzah, Ananias, Sapphira, Peter at Galatia, and the man who picked up sticks on the Sabbath is enough to prove that God will allow no tampering with his statutes, no matter how slight the thing may seem to us.
God’s Word is immutable simply because it is God’s Word. No one of sound mind would be content to go to the final judgment having ignored a jot or tittle of the commandments of the Lord. The only safe course is to do precisely and exactly what God tells us to do in exactly and precisely the way God tells us to do it. Anything else is folly.

It is mind blowing to me that anyone who considers themselves a Christian and actually can read the Bible cover to cover and can know just a smidge of what were called “indulgences” in reformation church history could even give Benny Hinn the time of day. See the ironic thing about the Bible is that the godless and false teachers perform miracles too! That is why we have to test the spirits of the age and also why Jesus said he does not perform “signs and miracles” on demand.
How so many people in “educated” America could be do dense is beyond me.

About this time last year I ventured to Seattle to attend a seminar by Richard Bartlett, another “faith” healer. I’m an author, and I was (and am) considering doing a book on faith healers. This guy has a couple of advanced degrees, legitimate ones, in health sciences and is a lapsed Catholic.
At the beginning of the seminar, he played deafening rock music (from a CD), which he accompanied on air guitar. Then he announced that a dolphin from outerspace with a microwave antenna extending from its blowhole (I’m not making any of this up) had told him to call a man up from the audience. The man comes forward, he announces, “Oh, whatever, you’re healed,” and the man keels over in a faint. A few minutes later he starts laughing hysterically. He’s taken over to a corner of the auditorium from where you can here him continue to laugh hysterically the whole evening.
The rest of the conference was no more reverent. His pug (I think I’m getting the breed right), Xena Warrior Princess, was introduced as having psychic powers. She ran around to a seminar participant, rolled on her back to have her belly scratched–and the participant later reported he no longer needed insulin for diabetes.
I’m pretty sure this guy no longer needed insulin for diabetes, in fact, I’m certain of it. Similarly, people who continued going to the meeting for the full 5 days discarded braces and oxygen concentrators and several quite literally picked up their wheelchairs and walked.
And at the end of the conference, the speaker thanked the giant space alien who taught him the method on the pass on I-90 during a snowstorm.
I got to interview the man for my book. He did something that made me keel over but not pass out. I am convinced something far beyond the ordinary went on.
Publishers and I have had lively conversations about marketability of the topic. We decided we’d just let the man do his own thing; he’s doing fine.
But the fact is, there are people out there performing miracles in nobody’s name in particular, and for those who simply have to believe in some higher power, a truly ridiculous higher power (the dolphin wearing the microwave dish hat, the space alien on the road to Walla Walla) is given them. I don’t have all the answers. I just left with more questions, and insulin-independent. And I’ve received not a single request for donations for any Gulfstream jets.

I grew up listening to A. A. Allen, Oral Roberts and many others of that ilk. There is nothing new. Just updated and modernized
My parents took me to a Kathrine Kuhlman show in Chicago. Some people next to us were praising God and said they had been healed. When they tried to go up front to testify guards blocked their way and eventually took them out of the auditorium.
Benny Hinn et.al. are to the church what wrestling is to sports. Wrestling is now billed as “sports entertainment”. It’s a show, albeit a show that requires a great deal of skill, accumen and athletic ability. It shouldn’t be taken seriously. It’s a show!
Benny and company are “Church entertainment” or “religious entertainment”. They shouldn’t be taken seriously, they are shomen,entertainers.
Unfortunately, like with pro wrestling some folks just don’t get it. They take these guys seriously and believe that everything is real inspite of the glaring absense of any varifiable healings and abundant proofs of their decietfulless.
The Bible warns against these charletons and against ignorance that leads Christians to fall for their lies.
Too many people would rather have one great big emotional experience than a dozen facts.
Finally, have you ever seen a stage hynotist performance? If you’ve ever seen Benny Hinn work you have. It’s the same show only one uses religious trapping, the other doesn’t.

Why has it been a custom of rellying on one verse in the bible about false preachers that will happen in the last days ?

The following links below will take you to a collection of YouTube videos which are parts of a 1999 HBO documentary on faith-healing. An independent camera crew was for the first time allowed to film a Benny Hinn crusade in the US, and a Reinhard Bonke revival in Nigeria. Some of the people who claimed to have been healed were followed up to see how much better they were doing after their ‘healing’. One particular case, of an Indian boy with a brain tumour, is particularly sad.
None of the people claimed to be healed at his crusades actually get healed. Its all imaginary, and people need to wake up to the fact that supernatural healings do not occur, regardless of which evangelist it is.
