Its funny some say Benny =darkness when supporting those who have preached with Benny. There is something demonic locking the mind if we fail to see bad company corrupts. "Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them" It looks like some want to expose obvious darkness but cling to greater darkness for fear that almost everything they have ever been taught is a temple in the making. Jesus said "DESTROY THIS TEMPLE AND I WILL REBUILD IT IN 3 DAYS" May God reveal to you today the sons of perdition, MYSTERY OF LAWLESSNESS. Be set free as The Spirit teaches that a person can taste the powers of the age to come but still fall into the hands of the living God. Be afraid, Only HE is TRUE!

and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified:
Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake, to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it.
And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

Thou shalt not worship false idols! Benny Hinn is a false prophet! I have attended Benny Hinn conferences. Do not allow yourself to be deceived, for even the angel of darkness can come as an angel of light! He is one of the money-cometh false prophets! You've been warned. These truths we hold to be self-evident. Shalom.

Hey: if Benny didn't sell 'em, someone else would.
What I'd like to know is who's buyin' them. That way I could steer clear of them critters.
Same goes for ol' Wendy, hawkin' her Chronicles of Brothers books... as a "God-approved" (the Father told her it was cool, doncha know?) fictional depiction of the Salvation of Jesus, the Christ of God. Is there some difference between her and Benny?
BTW: GodTV? Ya think Jesus is hangin' out in their control room switchin' camera angles and syncin' up them Benny-commercials with hers? But I'd bet they offered Jesus options with a 1,000-year vesting period--as a perk.
I know where I'm tunin' for the first video feeds of that anti-christ "messiah", though.

I dont know much about this worshipping statues bs, I think Benny Hinn is a fake.
I have a little statue of Michael Archangel in my house. I consider it protection if I happen to get my hands on it should someone intrude into my home and my life is threatened. I welcome any protection God offers but if someone is threatening my safety, I'm sorry but "michael" will protect me just fine when I beam him across the room to someone's cranium.
For now, its a great paperweight and a reminder of something that cought my brain growing up as a christian moving out on my own as a young adult kept me so far:
"Who is Like God?"
I pilfered that quote. It's not my own. but it works.

Glenn please give the the difference between advice judgement and juddging.
---Andy on 4/11/09|
While I don't agree with your reasoning, you said "Glenn, do you dare to put a judgment upon a fellow servant of God?"... "but do not condemn." It's not possible to say this without violating your own reasoning as you both judge and condemn.
A common response to criticism is to use one of the following: 'don't judge' *1, 'don't touch Gods anointed' *2, and 'just let God'... when God is saying you...
*1 Matthew 7:1-5 and Luke 6:41-42 deal with hypocrisy, and censoriousness. 1Corinthians 2:15, 5:3, 11-13, 6:4, 11:31 instruct us to judge. *2 In 1Chronicles 16:22 & Psalms 105:15, touch means to strike, or kill.
p.s. Andy, your writing style is delicate for a man.
---Glenn on 4/10/09|
Benny Hinn is a Palestinian who was raised a Maronite Christian. The Maronite Church is in communion with the Roman Catholic Church. So he is not all bad. God bless.
---JohnnyB on 4/10/09|
Glenn, in what way was i a hypocrite? i did nort understand your thesis here most probably because you lacked time to explain.
---Andy on 4/10/09|
Hilda 3/30/09: I disagree with you, but aren't you hypocritically...
..."putting the mouths on his anointed ones, Its not for you or anyone to say who his anointed ones are."
In 1Chronicles 16:22 & Psalms 105:15, touch means to strike, or kill. I'm not advocating giving him the rebels beating.
p.s. Your deprecatory curses mean nothing to me. 2Kings 1:10, 12, Proverbs 26:2, Romans 13:12, 2Corinthians 6:7, 10:4, Ephesians 6:11-17, 1Thessalonians 5:8.
---Glenn on 4/6/09|
Andy 4/2/09: I disagree with you, but isn't it hypocritical for you to say...
"do you dare to put a 'judgment' upon a fellow servant of God?" "but do not condemn." Also, 'fellow servant' and 'servant of God'?
Acts 5:33-39 concerns a statement made by an unbelieving Gamaliel. In Acts 5:40, they agreed with Gamaliel, beat them, and commanded them to not speak in Jesus' name, and let them go.

Rev. Daniel, totally agree with you there, however faith is a difficult subject with finances, and many an not put their trust in the Lord financially. most believe they need money to serve God, nevertheless forgetting it is Gods work.lets pray indeed that these big faces on tele, will receive this special grace
---Andy on 4/6/09|
Personally I think way to many big time world wide ministries spend way to much time begging for money and thinking of ways to dupe more money from people.
If their work is truly ordained by God then they dont need statues or gifts to entice you to send money. They would simply do as I do and ask God to fulfill the needs of the ministry and the money would come in through love offerings without the long marathon money raising telethons. And the little statues and gimmicks to entice you out of your money.
---Rev._Daniel on 4/2/09|

Ellen: God "has shown him ' his errors" through other people. His books, the various audio and video recordings (available on the internet), and first person testimony are not hearsay. Judas Iscariot had one incident. Matthew 18:18-20 means God has bound it in Heaven, to disagree with this is to "sin ourselves in our word, thoughts and deeds"

Hilda, I have a few questions to ask you.
Are you against people speaking truth and exposing FALSE TEACHERS FOR WHO THEY REALLY ARE? Titus 1:10-11.
What about those dates (which all have past) when Benny Hinn told people that Christ himself would make a physical appearance with Benny on stage? This goes against what is written in Matthew 24:24-44.
What about Benny Hinn promoting the FALSE TEACHING that God cannot do anything here on earth unless we first give God our permission, because God is illegal here on earth?
---Rob on 3/30/09|
Everyone needs to be careful of what the say! God gives us warning in 1Chronicles and in Psalm
I have seen results of people putting the mouths on his anointed ones,Its not for you or anyone to say who his anointed ones are.
1 Chronicles 16:22
Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
---Hilda on 3/30/09|
Glenn, do you know the heart of Benny Hinn? you must remeber not to judge on appearances. i met him three times, and he is a quite lovable (however a little bit strange) man of God.
---Andy on 3/30/09|
I do not judge the person, but the evidence laying before me and that being their fruit. About a year ago, I travelled some distance with one of my daughters to seek prayer for the other daughter. After much trouble getting to the function Mr. Hinn was speaking at, we spent 2 days listening to him give very short sermons. Please see continue below...
---Joyce on 3/29/09|
Many fine points have been made regarding Benny Hinn and the sale of figurines.
I pray that 1) if we believe he is sinning, in error, that we pray that God would show him of his errors,
2) we make sure we are not making observations based out of hear-say or one or two incidents where we heard him comment/discuss about something, and 3) we contact his organization to get clarification about his beliefs, such as the Trinity, 4) we do not sin ourselves in our word, thoughts and deeds in responding about Benny HInn and his ministries. Thank you. ellen

This is no more than the latest trinket as a carrot and stick for donors. People who give want something tangible in return. Pie in the sky bye and bye isn't good enough so ministries waste money that could be used for more serious matters buying and hocking "thank you" items.
Prayer cloths, statues, certificates, refridgerator magnets and medallions are all part of the QVC version of the bible.
Actually a bible or authored book is a gift one would consider appropriate. Most of the other stuff is just junk.

Since Benny is an unrepentant, erroneous, and pseudo minister, having been corrected by many congregations according to *1 for violating *2, several respectable congregations have applied *3. Therefore, to continue to support him is an act of rebellion.

Steveng. i think you actually put idols and idolatry in the opposite context. ARTS WAS ORIGINALLY UNIQUELY FOR RELIGIOUS REASONS, it is afterwards that it became popular to have non religious decorational art in the house (this in history is a verry recent event) . now do not ghet ofended by next question, but are you consequent in what you say? do you have NO IMMAGE whatsoever of anything in your house?
nevertheless, Myself also agree that a man of God should not sell these items for the reason that the weaker ones could ghet confused, still i rather take it up with the servant in question then to critisize him wher he can not defend himself.
---Andy on 3/26/09|
Andy: "Did Benny hinn say they have some Spiritual power? or that you should kneel in front of them. these things are ONLY DECORATIONS..."
God explicitly said "not to make any image of anything" in the sea beneath, on the land, or in the air above (Yes, there are a few verses that also includes the word "graven," but many don't).
Images confuse people. For instance, the image of Jesus. Did he have long hair or short hair? Did he have blue eyes or brown eyes? Was he as handsome as the images of Jesus today portray? Did he walk around with a halo? Or a heart on his chest?
In the beginning, people buy statues for decoration, but tend to start idolizing the statues after awhile.
---Steveng on 3/17/09|
Abraham stopped people from bowing to status, so did Moses & Jesus, yet after their holy departures, we made statues of Jesus and his holy mother and bow too. the cross, we also bow too, just as the jews did when moses mounted to get the commandments they made the calf, and since we bow to all these, why not to some more statues which benny H would introduce?? our weakness is in our religion, lets throw all statues and worship the one Gd that Abraham, Noah, Moses, Jesus, etc ordered us to bow in prayers and worship
---Comforter on 3/17/09|
Did Benny hinn say they have some Spiritual power? or that you should kneel in front of them. these things are ONLY DECORATIONS whoever wants to swing duetero 20.1-6 to me let him be warned, that scripture needs to be read as a whole, and if you believe otherwise then your family photoss on the wall are just as much sin. All i am saying is leave the man alone. through his ministrie thousands are saved and brought in the kingdom of God. if He is right or wrong in certain things Let God be the judge.
---Andy on 8/29/08|
I am not at all suprised with this being something Benny Hinn would do.

Hopefully this will be a wake up call for all those who follow his false teachings.

Benny Hinn is a false prophet who actually stood over the grave of Amy Carmicke (sp) and said he felt her anointing. Well, you can't get any more demonic than that. Marketing Jesus trinkets would follow in order of anything demonic. "ALL" idolatry is demonic.
---kathr4453 on 3/21/07|
Sorry, I meant Amy McPherson:
He has made statements that quote:
- -- he was going to the graves of Amy Semple McPherson, and Kathrine Kuhlmann to get their spirits so he could have their anointing on him.
- I am a little Messiah, walking on the earth.

---kathr4453 on 3/21/07|
Also: RE; Benny Hinn,
His teachings on the trinity have no basis in theology. He has stated that God the Father, is really a trinity by Himself, and Jesus and the Holy Spirit are also trinities too. So, there are nine parts to the Godhead.
All of this is serious, yet his aberrant teachings have even a more serious aspect to them.
---kathr4453 on 3/21/07|
His ministry is worldwide, and his TV theatrics and miracle healings mixed with the ministry of falling down. However, his teachings are aberrant and heretical, mixed with New Age and Word of Faith theology.
He uses the phrase, revelation knowledge which is one of the main tenants of the New Age and Gnostic belief system. This phrase, revelation knowledge enables him to contradict sound biblical teachings and the Scriptures by merely saying that God told him.
---kathr4453 on 3/21/07|
I am a Christian and I have a Christian sister by my side. We do not think that there is any harm in this. There are many statues in this life that mankind bows down to. Ex. children, family, spouses, automobiles and houses. Even pets. As long as we don't bow down to let's say, Maria (Virgin Mary) St. Paul or St. Patrick, or any other so called saint, then, we guess it's alright. Amen.

Okebaram; Unless you are afraid of reality, look up "Benny Hinn" alone with the word "fraud" Its all over the net, and thats just the start.

---MikeM on 5/24/06|
Everything you said is almost certainly either false rumors, misquoted or misinterpreted statements, or lies you made up. it is obvious that he wouldn't say any such thing.
---Okebaram on 5/24/06|
Benny Hinn said Castro would be out of power by 1995, and that all the gays in America would be dead by the mid 90's. He also said you should set up your dead relitives in your front room to watch his TV show; I would presume to be raised from the dead as a result? This is all verifible online. Who's Benny Hinns God? Enough said.
---MikeM on 5/24/06|
All I have to say is that thestautue is not for worship prayer or any thing other than Christian decoration for your house...an antique.
...And that Benny Hinn is a man of God.
---Okebaram on 5/24/06|
It's not the statue that bothers me. Don't think the statue itself will lead people astray. But some people almost seem to worship Benny Hinn. I don't understand it. They never question what the man says, no matter how outlandish and unbiblical. They seem to shrug off the fact that his prophecies fail time after time. I know that most all of his TV audience is Christian. Do they not know the Scripture? What makes them so undiscerning and gullible?

Making statues is not idolatry, but artwork; neither are pictures or paintings idolatry, they are art or decorations. God commanded Moses to make cherubims of gold, which are graven images of angels, and he commmanded the tabernacle to be decorated with graven knops and flowers. Idolatry is the worship and consulting or praying to inanimate objects in the place of God, and secondly it is substituting the Omnipresent Creator God with a finite creature or human. Catholics do this, but Christians do not.
---Eloy on 4/18/06|
All one has to do is look up Benny Hinn on the net, ALL of his 'prophecies' have failed. I know the scripture says 'touch not mine anointed.' I guess I had changed the channel before seeing Mr. Hinn getting personally 'anointed.' I will stick with Benny Hill.
---MikeM on 4/17/06|
I always wondered about people who believe Ben Hinn has any credibility. He is so clearly fake, it is truly astounding to me. His 'prophecy' has been proven false many times, again and again, no one cares. His 'healings' have been shown to be set ups, again and again. Yet millions listen to him, common denominator I suppose, someone explain it to me.
---Gerold on 4/13/06|
I'm not so sure Mr. Hinn is promoting the worship of his little statues as much as he's promoting the worship of himself. His lack of financial transparancey/accountability and over-the-top antics place him in much the same position as the sorcerer in Acts - who approached Peter wanting to buy the power of the Holy Spirit.

Tell it like it is; Deuteronmy 5:8 & 9 says,not to make any graven image or likeness of anything in heaven,earth beneath,or in water beneath the earth: this is why,not because something is likeness of those things, but because , Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them nor serve them . The reason is because anyone who whorships them doesn't belong to God, their focus is on the object making it the God, and not the God who created them all and is Master.Objects are neither good nor evil.

Thanks for your insight Alan and Herb, I was being sarcastic.

Rev Herb did not say "partake" but shalt not "make" any graven image, and shalt not "make" any likeness of anything that is in heaven above. That is a simple misunderstanding. Rev Herb is right ...

Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
He is breaking the second commandment, and he calls himself a man of God.
