Did anyone manage to catch DateLine NBC tonight? They aired another full hour segment on Benny Hinn. They discussed his ministry, from miracle healings to lavish “lay-overs” in far-away exotic places, to exposing his finances. I found the story troubling, as the information presented seemed very damaging to him and his ministry.
Having been exposed to Benny Hinn in the late 1970s - early 80s, I never imagined he would get this popular. Back then he would periodically visit a local Assembly of God church near my hometown in Western New York. Two of my siblings eventually left the Catholic Church, in part because of Hinn’s ministry. One went on to become an Assembly of God Pastor.
I have never given to Hinn’s ministry, and have remained Catholic. After what I saw tonight, the only thing I can think to do is pray for Hinn and those around him, and especially for all those people that have given him money and support - that they do not turn from God because of all that he and those around him have allegedly done.
I wonder if anyone else has seen the show - if so, do you have any comments?
