So forgive me for doubting beloved. It is easy to say six sentences denouncing everything you have said for twenty years. These quotes however show that those decades were about far more than mere prosperity. They included teaching the heresy of word faith and the little gods heresy. They included teaching mandatory healing and seed faith. Money is just the bling that catches our eyes. Where is Hinn on the remainder of his false teachings? Where is he on his false prophecies? Where is he on his fake healings? He would conclude:
"Although Hinn used to be an outspoken advocate for the prosperity gospel, he caused major waves last year when he apologized for his teaching, saying it didn't line up with the biblical definition of prosperity. Hinn announced his change of heart the same day the famed evangelist Billy Graham died. Around that time, Hinn opened up to Charisma magazine about how he was changing his theology on that matter. He said he still believed in prosperity but was beginning to realize the Bible defines true prosperity as "no lack." "In the book of Acts, we read that the New Testament church had no lack," he told Charisma. "Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, Luke specifically wrote, 'Nor was there anyone among them who lacked.' Obviously, from time to time, there were people in the early church who had needs while others were blessed more abundantly, but because of the faithfulness of God's people, the saints who 'had lack' immediately had their needs met and experienced no lack." Above all, Hinn said, prosperity is found through abiding in the presence of Jesus." -- Benny Hinn
Here is another reason why we doubt. Last year Hinn did apologize and say he was done with prosperity and then months later he was back making the same old pleas for cash. His theological logic here is also hair-splitting. What your definition of "no lack" is not the issue beloved. I get what Michael Snyder is saying but the organization he works for, Charisma, perpetuated Hinn for decades and now they are proud he is renouncing part of his false ministry? Then you are going to blame believers for being skeptical when no wolf has ever repented? Tell you what. I go back to the bible when I am confused. I will go back to the example set by Zacchaeus that allowed salvation to come into the house of one who had spent his life robbing the people of God. Perhaps I will trust Mr. Hinn more when he totally admits his ministry sins and repents of all of them. Perhaps I will trust him more when he puts his money where his mouth is. Until then I have a lifetime of doing real damage to the cause of Christ and untold thousands of people led astray versus six penitent sentences. I am sorry but I still have 42 million reasons to doubt Benny Hinn.
