Salvations Through Benny Hinn

My Dad says Benny Hinn is fake but lots of people like him and get saved by him. I am 18 and unsure. What do other Christians say?

Melinda, no one gets saved by Benny Hinn. God saves people, by His word. God brings light to the word, and those that receive that light give evidence they are born again because they can now hear the light of the word, understand it, and believe it by faith. God changes the nature of a person. Not Benny Hinn. Just making the language clear. Too many people speak like that and begin to confuse themselves.
---Mark_V. on 12/3/07

Benny hinn is not a fake he is a real person doing works for the devil.He is a false prophet and fulfilling scripture 2Thess2:9 benny hinn doesn't have ANY truth

one time on tv I seen him wind up like a base ball picture and through the "his" holy ghost at someone in the audience upper level and she went down. can you imagine throwing God around!!
---steven-rem7000 on 11/3/07

Melinda be encouraged. You dad may be right about Benny Hinn but I don't think so. I believe Benny Hinn is genuine. I have attended one of his gatherings and people seem to be getting healed and falling out under the power of the Holy Spirit. I think your dad should be encouraging you at this tender age in your life. I hope you have been born again. Don't let Benny Hinn or anyone stop you from receiving Jesus as your Lord and Savior.My love to you.
---Robyn on 10/27/07

I have been to one of Benny Hinn's gatherings here in Houston. It was so many people in the Center where he was. Could not hold everybody. A large screen tv was set up outside in the streets. People were falling out under the power of the Holy Ghost, right there in the cold streets.You could feel the power of God. I believe Benny Hinn is a true Prophet of God. He carries a heavy anointing on his life.If he is a false prophet, God will take care of that himself.
---Robyn on 10/26/07

Any preacher who is not preaching a sermon of Jesus Christ and Him crucified before giving an altar call for salvation should be avoided. It is only by believing that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for you that you can be saved and have eternal life.
---Helen_5378 on 10/15/07

Salvation is only through Jesus Christ.
2 Samuel 22:47 The LORD liveth, and blessed be MY ROCK, and EXALTED be the GOD of the ROCK of MY SALVATION.
2 Timothy 2:10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain THE SALVATION which is in CHRIST JESUS with ETERNAL GLORY. I question alot on Benny Hinn and Joyce Meyer they contradict the Word of God.
---doug7835 on 10/15/07

This statement is wrong.
"Money is the root of all evil."
---eric on 10/15/07
To be correct this statement should read,
"The LOVE of money is the root of all evil."
---Mima on 10/15/07

The bible says you shall know them by their fruits.

An evangelist that is famous like him that keeps money to himself from the shows he does is a fake indeed. Benny hinn brings in $100,000 each show he does. He has his own jet, a SUV mercedes, a huge house on the beach, he shops at beverly hills stores and wears suits that are $3000.
Money is the root of all evil.
---eric on 10/15/07

Yea, TS, barnabas, it was about mark...paul felt like mark was going to hinder their work(from what happened b4 i forget exactly what happened), barnabas thought that Gods grace was sufficent enough to bring mark back into there ministry...thats when they split....
---mark on 4/19/07

patrick: I hear you...but there was disagreement among the brethren. It was only by the Spirit and God's Word that they were able to be of one accord.

I think there was a divide by two Apostles over a younger one who left when the going got tough. Yet Paul did not give up on him. Was it Barnabbas? Trying to remember off the top of my head. If I am wrong please remind me. Vr, TS
---TS on 4/19/07

TS I see what you are saying, this is a much better example of your point. Be careful though because your 1st example was not the apostles having issue with each other but with false brethren.
---Patrick on 4/18/07

Patrick: Does that make Peter a false prophet when he thought gentiles were Dogs? Later to have it revealed that "No man should be considered unclean?"
---TS on 4/18/07

I think it costs some money to buy time to be on TV, and this could be why some TV preachers ask for money. If there are people whom are really getting healed and/or saved from sin through Benny Hinn's ministry, so let him continue the good work. The Lord knows that there are multitudes of people whom need both healing and salvation.
---Eloy on 4/18/07

TS The debate over circumcision in acts 15 speaks of CERTAIN MEN vs.1 and a sect of PHARISEES vs.5 which thought except circumcised and following the law of Moses ye cannot be saved. Every APOSTLE mentioned in the text was included when Peter stated vs.11 "But WE believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved,..." Further, Paul refers back in Gal 2:1-8 to this controversy where in verse 4 he calls those involved false brethren brought in unaware.
---Patrick on 4/17/07

television evangelists are nothing more than men trying to seduce the weak and innocent into supporting their lavish lifestyles through donations. They are no more true prophets of God than my dog is. They talk a good game, but every one of them is only in it for greed and self glorification, just like many pastors. Every prophecy they made concerning a rapture has been false. People go like lambs to the slaughter to hear them. If the money stopped flowing, you would never hear from them again.
---ashley on 4/17/07

A Prophet is only correct 100% when they give a Revelation from God or His Word. Sometimes when not speaking by inspiration they also can be confused. The Apostles were also Prophets and they had an initial divide over the issue of circumcising the gentiles. These Prophets were corrected when the HS revealed to them the circumcision of the heart. This is why we are to TEST the Spirits against the Scriptures and keep that which is true.
---TS on 4/17/07

How would you know if a prophet is correct 100% of the time. How much do you know? People all the time have their ears tuned to fake preachers, and believe what they say or they must, they keep listening and paying them. And by the way, Joyce Meyer is no fake. The one or two true prophets or pastor comes along of whom God sent and you tell us that we are wrong. So you do not know. you don't know what you are talking about. Don't worry about it, they did the same thing to our blessed Lord Jesus.
---catherine on 4/17/07

According to the bible, in order for a man to be a true prophet of God, he must be right 100% of the time. If Benny Hinn is wrong only once, that makes him a false prophet. If he is wrong one time about events, then chances are he is wrong with the rest of his ministry. Where in the bible does it say to send a $70.00-$7000.00 passover gift? How many gulable people did?
---Rev_Herb on 4/16/07

I have not been to a Benny Hinn service.
There was another Laura, evidently.
---Laura on 4/14/07

I say he is not a fake. Some people really do get healed at his meetings and he always presents a solid salvation message. His prophecies may not be right and I am not sure if he handles the money correctly. However, he lives under an incredibly hectic schedule as there are not many others out there who are able to share the work load of healing. I think people should be very careful about how they judge him.People should go to his meetings and see first hand what happens.

---alan8869_of_UK on 9/3/06

I have been to many of his services but the last one was great. We all fell under the power. It was awesome. I know for an absolute fact that Benny Hinn is not a fake. I fell under the power. There is a scripture that says: "And these signs will follow those who beleive: In my name they will cast out demons; "They will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
-Mark 16:17&18

If you are not saving anybody, then where's your faith?
"Let him know, that he which converts the sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death, and will cover a multitude of sins. And some have compassion, making a difference: and others save with fear, pulling out of the fire; hating even the garment stained by the flesh." James 5:20; Jude 22,23.

There were people who accused Job of Sin and said he was not of God they would have died for their accusations because they saw Job according to their standards but God said he was perfect and they were calling God a liar,but Job prayed for them and they lived. If Benny Hinn does not fit your standard,I wonder what God thinks of him, He might be a dumb Ass speaking to the prophet.
---Exzucuh on 8/8/06

Break Benny Hinns legs and see what happens or perhaps crucify him. All your questions would soon be answered.
---Brad on 8/8/06

exzucuh, Hinn not only gave false prophesies, he gave exact dates he claimed God told him these things would happen on. None of them came to pass! If that isn't a false prophet, I don't know what is, do you? I heard him make some of those prophecies and you can even find live video and sound bites free online of him doing so. You can order DVDs of the programs on which he made them if you really are interested in the truth.

I will never do that because I don't even watch benny hinn or TBN. I don't even know what his prophecies are But prophecies sometimes take a long time to come to pass. I'm just trying to save you from error. because I know from experience what will happen to you.
---exzucuh on 6/23/06

exzucuh, just do me one little favor. When one of the many stupid prophesies of Hinns comes to pass, let me know. the man is a liar, and God does not annoint a liar!!!!
---Rebecca_S on 6/23/06

You can say all you want against false doctrine I do that myself but your not attacking his doctrine or giving any word to back your belief you are attacking the man and his God that is in him. That it is not a fruit of the Spirit. It is alright and acceptable to discredit false doctrine you are not doing that.
---exzucuh on 6/23/06

exzucuh, since you believe BH is annointed of God, I now see where you are blinded. You are seeing a man who has power from the devil and claiming it is of God. I pray that your eyes will be opened. Christians are to sound an alarm against false teachers, not encourage people to follow them. Not one of that mans so-called prophesies have ever come to pass. What does your bible say about that!? Mine says we are to take no part with them.

I do not understand when objective reality hits one in the face, like that BH is fake, that people still send these fakes money. I could see these same people deny the pacific ocean exist, get hit with a wave, then deny they are wet. How does the mind do it? One thing is clear, I would not trust such folk, they do NOT know the difference between faith and denial. If BH has power, I know where it comes from.

---T.S. on 6/22/06

Amen Exzucuh. I for one would never consider judging, let alone bring an accusation against anyone for any reason. Melinda no one gets saved by Benny Hill. The Father saves through the sacrificial atonement of Jesus. He uses man to bring the message of His salvation. The message is true. Who brings it is irrelevant. Mk. 9:40 "Forbid him not; for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. For he that is not against us is on our part".

It does not matter what is said about Benny Hinn these things are said about anybody trying to do Gods work. Benny Hinn is under the power of God if he does wrong God will take care of it. And he will also deal with his accusers. Not for benny's sake but because they are acting like the accuser of the bretherin, he hates that.Prov.6:16 get ready you accusers and take warning.

I have observed this site for a few weeks and wanted so bad to find a place to share and learn Gods word. I have never seen such venom spewed between those who claim to be Christians. I see worldly people with more love and compassion than what I have seen here. This is my first and final post. You people need to step back and ask yourselves, would Christ take part in such behavior? I think not. The world should see the Lord living in us........

"But the fruit of the spirit is LOVE, JOY, Peace, long suffering, GENTLENESS, goodness, faith... " [Gal.5:22-26]. Good to feel Good! An old jingle comes to my mind "how dry I am, ...". When one gets really filled/baptized with the Holy Spirit Of God, A Change happens, no matter what! Maybe everbody should go back to worshipping in barns, focused on Jesus Christ alone as it was on Azuza Street. Must be a reason some are critical unneccessarily of others 'scriptural' worship!
---bob6749_[Elishama] on 6/20/06

"Whoop and holler group"? Sounds like a spinoff for "bible toter". How else can one expect to accept and keep Jesus without their bible [Jn.5:39]? Then again, only 1 of the 10 healed lepers returned "hooping & hollering" & was made 'whole' [Lke.17:11-19]. King David, are you still "whooping & hollering" over the Ark's return? Cp. Lke.19:37-'40', Acts 2:1-13, 14,18, Ezek.37:1-5, sports anyone?

Wonder what Mrs Hinn has seen or observed on this issue. The late Mrs Evelyn Roberts 'saved' then Evangelist O. Roberts ministry after he preached & ministered to the point of exhaustion once, was broke [they had "muzzled the ox..."], refusing to tell the people or anyone of their situation, "if God called me, he can take care of me/us". Quiet by nature she boldly & unelfishly spoke to the crowd. The rest is history. God can move mountains as well as buildings!

A god that does nothing is an idol. Elijah proved God to Israel by Fire. Jesus baptizes in the Holy Ghost and fire, and when fire is on someone they don't just sit around and do nothing, on the day of pentecost there was such a noise coming from the upper room it got 3000 peoples attention.

John-- How can one "witness thousands give their lives to Jesus"? You can see "thousands" go forward in response to a preacher's sermon or invitation. What you cannot see is a person's heart. Some even think they are Christians BECAUSE they "went forward" in a meeting! And, thinking that, they never actually meet Jesus.

The Azuza Street Revival was the beginning of the 'whoop and holler make me feel good' movement. The bible says you can tell them by their fruits. One of the fruits of the spirit is self-control, something completely lacking in the charasmatic movement. But then, why care what the real fruits are when you can gorge on feelings. Help yourself. I'll take Jesus and the real Holy Spirit.

The bible says when a prophets words do not come to pass we are to stay away from such a man. Benny Hinn has made dozens of prophecies he claims God gave him and not one has come to pass. How dumb can people be? Jer 14:14 Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
---Rebecca_S on 6/19/06

Benny Hinn preaches another gospel therefore another christ. If another christ saves you are you truely saved.

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
---Rev_Herb on 6/19/06

People of Jesus' day, mainly religious, called him a basta.. & devil among other things [Lke.27-31], those bearing fruit expect the same. Oral Roberts, Billy Sunday, Maude Aimee, K.

The way you expose IS by showing what they do and say. BH said Castro would be out of powwer by 1995. BH said Gays in America would be gone by the 90's. BH has said people should 'set up their dead relitives to watch his tv show.' BH has said Jesus showed up on his TV show, and has video proof. BH has been exposed using props for his fake healings. Follow ups show his healings were fake. On and on it goes. People have a right to know this, and praise the Lord for the reporters who are exposing this.
---MikeM on 6/19/06

The numbers of people saved under one's ministry or the number of genuine miracles do not prove a thing about the "minister."

If the devil himself were to preach the gospel, people could be saved. Isaiah 55:11, "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."

When it was brought to Paul's attention that there were those preaching the gospel with an altogether wrong attitude, he replied Philippians 1:18, "What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice."
---Bruce5656 on 6/19/06

Let me ask two basic questions. Does objective reality mean anything? Does credibility mean anything? If the answers to those questions is a solid no, then Benny Hinn should not be a problem for you. If the answers are yes, then one must accept that Benny Hinn is a 100% fake. It cannot be made more simple than that.

Melinda I believe your father is correct. But even the blindness pig will find an ear of corn once in a while. And the very poorest of preachers(by the foolishness of their preaching) will see people come to Lord Jesus Christ and be saved!!

My I impose 'Objective reality' into this discussion? This Hinn has been clearly shown to be fake. My thoughts are the child patients who stop taking meds, and die, the old lady who send him her SSI check. He has been exposed again and again, his false predictions. Does reality mean a thing? All the hootin' and hollerin' at his meetings is mass mind control. He does put on a fine, show, its the greatest show on earth!

The problem with many is that we only know how to point our fingers at others. While many Christains around the world never say a word about Christ to others, many have condemned Benny Hinn. What about the millions in India who heard him preached and many are now saved and also healed (my uncle's eyes were healed as he wached one of Benny Hinn's programs on TV)?I personally have been greatly blessed by his ministry. The question we really need to ask ouselves is, What have we done for Christ?

Something to think about, even though as I said earlier, I am NOT a real big fan of his, and rarely, if ever, watch him anymore- BUT, I'm sure that not EVERYONE who has ever been touched in some way by the Lord through Benny's "ministry" is a fake case- though there probably ARE many, there are also MANY who have been touched
