Benny Hinn and Money

Benny Hinn is again pleading for millions to give their hard earned money to the Benny Hinn Ministry. Yet he has NEVER TRULY REPENTED of believing and teaching some of the most outlandish heresies in Church history. He is deceiving millions with his so-called 'ministry'.

Here is one of his latest statements as he reassures his followers of his commitment to them. The following quote is in the context of the money that his followers have given to his ministry.

"I want you to know that my staff and I have prayed a prayer in agreement for your unique need, and I have claimed heaven's every blessing and benefit on your behalf. Begin trusting our precious Lord Jesus for your breakthrough. Don't trust in circumstances or what you see with your natural eyes, but begin to trust in His Word and the promises He has declared just for you" (Benny Hinn E-letter, September 9, 2005).

Well, the book of Ephesians says that true believers in Christ have already been given every spiritual blessing in Christ.

Ephesians 1:3-4 says " Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love".

Furthermore, we cannot see the value of entrusting our finances to a man who has proclaimed the following:

Benny Hinn has taught in the past that the Egyptians were not drowned in the Red Sea but were crushed by falling ice (Praise The Lord Show 7/14/94)

Regarding Adam, Benny Hinn has taught,

“God's original plan is that the woman was to bring forth children out of her side" (Our Position in Christ#5, 1990).

(Adam) “was the first Superman that really ever lived…he used to fly.…he flew to space.—with one thought he would be on the moon. " (Benny Hinn, Praise the Lord TBN 12/26/91).

“Within me is a God-man…The Spirit man within me is a God-man…I’m a God-man.”

“Are you a child of God? Then you are divine!...Then you’re not human.”

“When you say I am a Christian, you are saying ‘I am messiah in Hebrew.‘I am a little messiah walking earth.”

“You know what your last name is? Jehovah! So I’m Benny Jehovah!”

"Though we are not Almighty God Himself, nevertheless, we are now divine."
(Benny Hinn, TBN, 12/1/90)

Let's say, 'I AM A GOD-MAN.' …This spirit man within me is a God-Man. …Say 'I'm born-of-heaven-God-Man. I'm a God-Man. I'm a sample of Jesus. I'm a super being." (Praise the Lord, TBN, Dec 6 1990).

“I am not part of him, I am Him! The word has become flesh in me." (Our Position in Christ).

"Are you ready for some real revelation knowledge... you are God" ("Our Position In Christ", tape # AO31190-1)

See also - http://www.letusreason.org/Wf1.htm and the rest of the countless warehouses of information on Benny Hinn as a false teacher, false prophet, lying prophet, charlatan, deceiver, etc.

Why are 'Christians' so gullible nowadays? Because many of them in Britain, the U.S.A. and other countries are not willing to read their Bibles and confront such heresy.

It is a sad day indeed when Christians follow a self-proclaimed 'God-man' who has proven Hinn-self to be nothing more than what Scripture defines as a false teacher who performs lying signs and wonders. See the book of JUDE and 2 PETER

We must speak the truth in love and warn the flock of God (Acts 20).

Millions are being deceived around the globe by Benny Hinn and others who are just like him.

Thousands join Hindu celebrations

{From BBC News Article, August 26, 2005}
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4186326.stm

"The largest gathering of Hindus outside India is due to take place with 75,000 people set to take part.

Celebrations marking the 5,000-year-old festival of Janmashtami are to take place at the Bhaktivedanta Manor Hare Krishna temple in Watford, Herts.

The festival marks the birth of Lord Krishna, the most highly venerated God in the Hindu pantheon. Organisers have erected 20 marquees on 77 acres near the temple, where plays and dancing will be held.

Although the festival starts at midday, the crux of the celebrations will be at midnight, the official time of Lord Krishna's birth. Until then, many Hindus will fast all day.

The free festival, which runs until Sunday, is being overseen by 800 organisers who have spent the last month preparing for the event. Co-ordinator Ranesh Kallidai said: "It is an amazing festival full of colour and warmth."

In light of the Hare Krishna temple 'Celebration', we recommend a brief look at the following before getting excited about this 'spiritual' movement.

Betrayal Of The Spirit - My Life Behind the Headlines of the Hare Krishna Movement
by Nori J. Muster

Betrayal Of The Spirit (Table of Contents)

Betrayal of the Spirit - Back Flap excerpt
"Betrayal of the Spirit details drug dealing, weapons stockpiling, deceptive fund raising, child abuse, and murder within ISKCON, as well as the dynamics of schisims that forced some 95 percent of the group's original members to leave". [Exerpted from back flap of Betrayal of the Spirit by Nori J Muster (former ISKCON member).

Upon doing some simple research on the Hare Krishna movement as well as personally interviewing Hare Krishna devotees on the streets of Edinburgh, we highly encourage the general public to take a closer look before getting involved with this organization. The history of this movement as well as its 'leaders' have a track record blackened with legal issues, extreme abuses and destroyed lives.

For instance, "The ISKCON or Hare Krishna community has been under federal investigation. Over the years there have been many reports in the Los Angeles Times and other papers on alleged criminal activity at the sect’s various headquarters. The investigative news show "West 57th Street," on October 31, 1987, reported allegations concerning the murder of former members, wife beating, child molesting, and the sale of illegal drugs such as cocaine and heroin at one location".

Caveat emptor - Let the buyer beware! This is not inciting religious hatred, it is simply researching and publishing what the general public do not know about the Hare Krishna movement.
