Benny Hinn Barred From UK

Benny Hinn is not allowed entry into Britain in order to attend a conference. Why? Because of the UK's rules on Religious Extremism. He did not get permission from a state approved 'church' known as a letter of sponsorship. comments

Benny cannot heal.It is the healing anointing.Sometimes the presence of God in a meeting heals independent of the minister in the meeting or simply the compasion of Jesus.I was healed watching benny,my mum twice and she got saved. it is Jesus that heals.
God in the old testament spoke through a donkey to speak to a prophet balaam.That does not mean the donkey was highly spiritual.
The gifts of the spirit operating trough someone should not be mistaken for a sign of spiritual maturity.So Just because God heals trough Benny does not mean he is spiritually mature to avoid the wiles of the Devil.

Pray the prayers in the book of ephsians for yourself daily and the Spirit of Wisdom and revelation will rest on you to know things Gods way.

Well what about Brown. He's much worse than Blair. I do remember Lockabee.
---Pastor_JIm on 11/15/09

Jody ... If someone does not have the proper entry documents they can't come into this country, same as they are not allowed into the USA (which has far stricter rules)

Phelps was banned because of his racially inciting views, and that might have been why they took a close look at Michael Savage ... have alook at his web site

Of course thse strict rules are not followed consistently. It's come to light yhay the present government, then led by your beloved Tony Blair, deliberately allowed uncontrolled immigration so as to "rub the noses" of our middle classes
in the mud.

And we have hundreds of Islamist extremeist who have been allowed in, and we are even giving pulic funding to their extremist organisations.

I'm afraid I have to say that Benny Hinn has never witnessed to my spirit. In fact, he turns me off. I don't like for a man to take credit for what God is doing. And Hinn is out for publicity.

Apparently the bust of Churchill was only on loan

I know nothing more about the Michael Savage affair ... it was not news over here.

Tony Blair a hero? He wanted to go to war to gain popularity, as he thought it would be a quick win.

9/11 was not planned in Iraq, and evidence of WMD was fabricated.
---alan8566_of_uk on 11/15/09

Thanks Alan.

I heard there was lot more than that occurring. He was invited to the prestigious Cambridge conference and later found out it was a set up. But anyway, I was just wondering if you heard anything over there.

BTW... My apologies about the Usurper in Washington for returning the Bust of Churchill that Blair gave us as a gift for 911. It was not his to give back, but ours! Blair was Churchill to us after 911, we were frighten! America could never be more thankful than to have the PM tell us it going to be okay. I will never forget it as long as I live. THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US YANKS!

Then we could exchange email addresses and communicate freely.

Alan, Thank you. I would like that very much. Sometimes public awareness commercials are in order, the Television broadcasts could advertise, "Please don't litter...let's keep England it right, trash does in the trash cans...clean grounds and clean water are beautiful, but debris is ugly...etc.
---Eloy on 11/14/09

Pastor Jim ... Our Home Secretary when banning Michael Savage, said

"This is someone who has fallen into the category of fomenting hatred, of such extreme views and expressing them in such a way that it is actually likely to cause inter-community tension or even violence if that person were allowed into the country,"

Fred Phelps was also banned.

Does that help?
---alan8566_of_uk on 11/14/09

I don't care about that antichrist! But why is Michael Savage Banned in Britain???
---PASTOR_JIM on 11/13/09

Eloy ... I'm afraid England has changed a lot in those 30 years.

For some reason, there is now far less respect for each other, and for the environment.

I was very struck when I went to France on holiday this year, how clean and tidy everywhere was, compared to the dirt of England and the rubbish that people just leave lying around.

If you come to England (rather the UK!) again, let me know, and I will give you a list of places outside London to go to, and could even give you an exploration of the South West and South Wales.
---alan8566_of_uk on 11/13/09

Alan, yes, I really enjoyed your country. It was in 1977 or 78 when I visited England but I don't recall seeing those places, but I did see the changing of the guard and London Bridge. We went over the English channel to France for a day, but I did not like France, it was very dirty over there. The wind blew the dust in my eyes and the streets were dirty. I think England has a much more old world country charm which is not as rich here in high tech America. If I recall the chip wedges were given to us in those disposable paper thin cardboard baskets. And the people were very friendly just like the Germans were, very hospitable. I think the health and safety regulations are a good thing today. I would not mind visiting England again one day.
---Eloy on 11/13/09

Eloy ... I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to England.

Margate in not at all the most exciting or prettiest part of the country ... did you go to the Lake District, or Scotland, or the Brecon Beacons or the Devon, Cormwall or Pembroke coasts?

Although we have a longer history, with castles and so on, its all on a much smaller scale than what I see in books about America & there's nothing to match the Rockies or Grand Canyon or Florida.

Were your fish and chips wrapped in newspaper? "Health & Safety" means we can't have that now!
---alan8566_of_uk on 11/12/09

Alan, I see. That is a good thing to have set standards for people to enter their countries. And I didn't think that your country would become communist. I visited your country many years ago for a vacation for 30 days, and I stayed at the Ambassador Hotel in Margate Kent England. Richard was the proprietor. You have a very beautiful country full of castles and rich historical sights. And your fish and chips down at the beach were delicious.

Let us all hope the facts we have shared about Benny Hinn will be an eye openning experience for Eloy and he will accept the truth.
---Rob on 11/11/09

Eloy ... I don't think my country banned Hinn from attending a conference. We banned him from entering the country because he had not bothered to obtain the documentation required for entry.

This is exactly the same as your country behaves when banning UK citizens from entry, exept that your restrictions and requirements are much tougher.
---alan8566_of_uk on 11/11/09


I replied to you but it apparently didn't get posted.

Among other things (not just claimed by some web site, but with actual documented sound clips from Hinn's own programs) are:
- Fidel Castro would die in the 90s
- Israel would make peace with Syria's Hafez el-Assad (he died before that could happen)

Eloy, whenever others along with myself share with you scripture from the Bible, you say we bear false witness.

This in itself is evidence of who you truly are and places you in the catagory of those who are discribed in Romans 1:18-32 and 2 Peter Chapter Two.

Eloy, I spent several years in the military. One thing I learned was to document everything that was questionable or wrong, for those times when people like yourself come along.

Eloy, you asked what prophecy did Benny Hinn make which did not come to pass? Let me share one with you.

On March 29,2000 and again on April 2,2000 on TBN, Benny Hinn said that Jesus would make a personal and physical appearance on stage with him (Benny Hinn) during a crusade he will be having on April 21,200 in Nairobi, Africa. Everyone knows that Jesus did not appear on stage with Benny Hinn.

For Benny Hinn to say that Jesus will appear with on stage on a certain date goes against what is written in Matthew Chapter 24.
---Rob on 11/10/09

Rob, Whenever someone tries to curse someone that God himself has blessed, then what happens is that the blessed person increases in blessing because God's supernatural protection guards his children, and the self-destructive one will receive his own curse multiplied back upon himself. For God is not mocked, for whatsoever a person sows, that will the person also reap. This is God's way, and some people call this karma, and is the reason why many people suffer. If you want God's continued wrath in your life, then continue mocking his kids and you will continue to receive your just deserts. BUt if you want God's favor, then you need to repent and start blessing with your words rather then dissing.
---Eloy on 11/10/09

Strongax, you cannot seriously accept propaganda off of the internet as being the gospel truth. Know you not how many unsaved people bear false witness over the internet? Consider even on this website how Rob bears false witness against me, a real born-again saint from Christ. And yes, indeed it does matters that Benny is saving souls: "Let him know, that he which converts the sinner from the error of his way will save a life from death, and will cover a multitude of sins." James 5:20. BTW, let me ask, what prophecy has Benny made which has not come to pass. For the times that I have seen him on television he has not made any prophecies, but was occupied with healing and reading scriptures.
---Eloy on 11/10/09

Eloy, let us get something perfectly clear. I DID NOT BLESS YOU!!! I have no desire to bless false teachers, but to expose them for who they truly are.

Eloy, since you won't do research on Benny Hinn, let me share some facts with you and see how you respond.

Why has it been documented people who Benny Hinn claimed to have healed at his Miracle Crusades, died within days, and in some cases the very same day?

Why is it a few years ago Benny Hinn told people he needed to raise funds to build a Healing Center. He collectd over 50 Million Dollars.

Eloy, why was the Healing Center never built with the funds received, but Benny Hinn purchased a 35 Million Dollar jet, and built a 3.5 Million Dollar mansion for himself?

Eloy, I agree that Benny Hinn along with yourself are doing much for the Kingdom. But it is not for the Kingdom of God. You along with Benny Hinn and the other false teachers work for the Kingdom of Satan,2 Corinthians 11:1-15.

You also claim to be sharing the Gospel, but it is not the Gospel of Christ Jesus, Galatians 1:6-10.

StrongAxe, many, man, times I have suggested to Eloy to do research on Benny Hinn. It is indeed true that Benny Hinn's teaching, supposed miracles, and supposed healings, have been documented as being false.

Eloy will not do research on Benny Hinn because Eloy does not want to know the truth, because Eloy is a hater and an adversary to truth.

Eloy, if Benny Hinn has the ability to heal, why doesen't he heal his very own wife who is on medication because his wife is psychotic.
---Rob on 11/10/09


It doesn't matter whether Benny Hinn has saved a lot of souls or not. He has, on several occasions, made prophecies that he claimed were from God himself but later did not come true. (Do a web search for benny-hinn false-prophet). These are not just claims, but documented speeches of his.

If a prophet makes a prediction, and what he predicts does not come to pass, then what the prophet says is not from God. In Old Testament times, such a prophet was stoned to death (Deutronomy 18:20-22).

Jesus warned that false prophets would do many great works and many miracles that could decieve even the very elect, if that were possible. Good works alone do not prove legitimacy.
---StrongAxe on 11/10/09

Rob, Thank you for your blessing, for as Pharoah had blessed the firstborn of God's people by foolishly trying to curse them, you have likewise blessed me. I pray that you will become born-again, after which you will be able to rightly bless God's children with your words, rather than wrongly desecrate and thereby bring judgment upon yourself. "Blessed be you all when which malign you, and will persecute and say all evil word against you, lying falsely, on account of me. If they called the Lord of the house beelzebub, how much more them of his household? If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you, if they have kept my saying, they will keep your's also."

Rob, Benny and myself have and are doing much good for the kingdom: but what are you doing? You need to repent from bearing false-witness, and to stop racking the body of Christ in the name of God. Anyone whom maligns a saint, and uses God's Word to try to justify their blasphemies is being used by the enemy. If you have so much hatred against Benny and/or myself, then I suggest that you merely turn the channel to some other broadcast and/or ignore the gospel from my postings. Whenever I come across a channel where I disagree with a minister, I redeem the time by simply turning him off by turning the channel, I do not publicly forfeit my God-given time to wrongly malign his Christian ministry.
---Eloy on 11/9/09

Glenn, People are getting saved, set free, and healed through Benny's ministry, will you be so bold as to try stop this work, and for what cause? As I have corrected Rod, so I likewise correct you. Spend your time obeying the Command from God: Preach, teach, and heal in his name, which is exactly what Benny is DOING. Now you likewsie GO DO: Stop dissing Benny, for if God's hand is no longer with Benny and he is indeed backsliding then his house will not stand, but it is not for you nor for any other person to condemn a Christian evangelist serving Christ.
---Eloy on 11/9/09

In Matthew 18:15-20, verses 15-17 concerns offenses committed against you personally, but 1Timothy 5 does not. 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. In 1Chronicles 16:22 & Psalms 105:15, touch means to strike or kill. Elders: 1Timothy 5:19-22 (reputable witnesses). Not permitting this violates 1Timothy 3:1-15, Titus 1:6-9, 1Peter 5:2. If the charge is justifiable, Romans 16:17-18, and 1Corinthians 5 apply. Also, we are not permitted to falsely judge, or to diminish our brother, James 4:11. God tells us to correct anyone who calls himself a brother and sins though, 2Thesalonians 3:6, 2John 1:9-11.

---Rob on 11/9/09

Rob, Benny being wealthy is kjust one of the jealousies of dissers. Nonetheless, you are misapplying scriptures which instruct the saint to correct the sinner, for a license to slander ministers, that is the enemies work, to misuse scriptures for a license to work sin and support sin. As I said before, Benny has a renouned healing ministry, and the times that I have witnessed him on Television, he has not taught any false teachings nor destroyed the sick, but on the contrary he leads people to accept Christ and he uses the gift of healing to heal people. So stop downing people whom are working the works of Christ, for those whom are not against us are on our side.
---Eloy on 11/9/09

Benny Hinn had been disciplined in various Churches for false teaching, whereat he 'repented'. Yet, later on, he went elsewhere and repeated those error(s). When God used those congregations to then rebuke Benny, the Lord expects that all of Christianity respect this decision. The disciplining of a presumed Bishop is not a punishment, but recognizes that man is not qualified, whether due to immaturity, ignorance, sin, apostasy, or not meeting various Biblical standards *1. Eloy 11/8, "How many souls have you" 'personally' "ministered too?" Even only a few people ministered to under Gods' direction beats millions lied to.
*1 Acts 20:27-30, 1Timothy 3:1-15, Titus 1:5-16, James 3:1-18, 1Peter 5:1-3.

Eloy, I wrote nothing about Benny Hinn being rich, but being exposed and proven a FALSE TEACHER.

Since you brought up the subject of Benny Hinn being rich, I guess you would say what is written in 2 Peter 2:13, is a lie, which is how Benny Hinn became rich.

You probably also will say what is written Romans 16:17-18.

Rob, This Bible passage gives No License to any person to sin with their mouths against a minister. Benny has a renouned healing ministry, and many people have been healed by his Christian works. So what if he is rich, what is that to you or to any other person what riches he has. Know you not that coveting is a sin? His personal wealth belongs privately to him and not to you nor to any other person. If you want riches, then perhaps you could do the same job that he is doing, but by verbally knocking him you will ever gain any blessing from God, especially if you try to use the scriptures for license to do so. If Benny has fallen from grace, then pray for his restoration rather than dissing him as the worldly nonChristians do.
---Eloy on 11/9/09

Eloy, on these blogs many times you have told people they speak falsehood and need to become saved.

I have two questions for you.

1. Is what is written in 2 Timothy 4:2-4 true or false?

2. It seems you are a supporter of Benny Hinn, who time and time again has been exposed and proven to be a FALSE TEACHER. Have you ever done research on BENNY HINN?
---Rob on 11/8/09

Sounds like a trivial technicality, like you cannot get into certain restaurants without first wearing a necktie. If Benny wants to attend the conference bad enough then he will obtain the piece of paper required, else he will not care to attend. You who are quick to dis Benny Hinn, how many souls have you persoanlly ministered too? one or two, or none? So stop bad-mouthing other ministers like Benny Hinn, and you yourself go out and minister like you're commanded too. And when you do obey the Lord's commission, see how many dissers you attract to yourself, just like you are dissing others.
---Eloy on 11/8/09

Christian, 11/5:
Signing in as 'Christian' puts you under a special burden. However, the term 'man of God' is used in the Old Testament for Moses, David, and various prophets. Also, in 1Timothy 6:11, for Timothy, and in 2Timothy 3:17 for a 'minister'. The verse in 2Timothy 3:16-17 can be used in general for Christians, but in its context for those who are both submissive to God, and willing to learn his ways.
Please read, Psalm 8:4, 118:8, 143:2, Proverbs 20:24, Isaiah 2:22, Jeremiah 10:23, Ephesians 4:1-5:20.

I live in the UK, and am British, but my brother is Canadian. That means whenever he leaves the country, or comes in, it is registered with a computer, and they track him. This applies to anyone coming into the UK for that matter, and you have tosay why you come into the country.
Where Hinn lost out on, was he tried to come im on a tourist visa, and as he wanted to work here, he needed a work visa. There is no c onspiracy against him, after coming in so many times on the tourist visa, if you are considered working, you are required to get a proper visa.

A Border Agency spokesman said: "Under the UKs tough new points-based system, religious workers must obtain a valid certificate of sponsorship prior to arriving in the UK. These rules are designed to make sure that a legitimate sponsor is linked to each application to enter the UK for work purposes"

---alan8566_0f_uk you are correct and I am wrong. I should've said people who have ruled the world since 1500.
Really from the defeated of the Spanish Armada until the beginning of World War I.
Again let me say again you are correct.

Hmmmm, interesting. I hear England is rather pagan but there are some churches on fire for God and we know God will acknowledge, bless and protect even the remnant.
I would be surprised if state officials had enough discernment to suggest barring Hinn entry had anything to do with theology. It probably has to do with Hinn's theatrics of blowing, waving his suit coat and touching people who become "slain in the spirit". This makes some evangelicals and nearly all pagans very uncomfortable.
The practice was actually started in the mid-1700's by pagan German professor Frederick Mesmer who would blow and knock over a lecture hall full of unbelieving university students. Its where we got the term "mesmerized"

Benny Hinn Ministries still has an active DONOR ALERT in Ministry Watch.

Mima...Ask any missionary or minister who has ever served time in the UK and they will tell you that it has been the same for hundreds of years. Cold hearts to the word of God.

Mima ... Do you mean "Here are a people who ruled the world for 1500 years" ?

You don't know much about world history!

The UK did not even exist until about 400 years ago.

We have had some "golden periods" of high levels of international control and limited empire, but have never "ruled the world".

It is indeed sad that the man in the UK street does not know the Bible, but that is typical of the whole of Europe (and probably the USA if the truth were known?)

It's not only B. Hinn, there's others also that need to be barred.

When I came to The Cross, I even today Give my Tithes & Offerings.

When I read things that come trinity theology & such philosophy, I think of them here, 2nd. Tim. 3 v 7.

\\Scholars at the SOUTHEASTERN BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY who published their report on tithing in 2005,\\

Others disagree, especially among Southern Baptists, but it's a non-issue to me.

People will inevitably do one of the following: give what they can, tithe, not tithe, not give at all.
---Cluny on 10/6/09

Good for the UK!! They kept another crook out of their country!

All of the following well-known scholars agree that tithing ENDED AT THE CROSS, and that there is NO tithing in the Christian Church.

Scholars at the SOUTHEASTERN BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY who published their report on tithing in 2005, John MacArthur, Chuck Swindoll, J. Vernon McGee, Robert Baker, Phillip Schaff, Alfred Edersheim, C. I. Scofield, Charles Ryrie (Dallas Theological Seminary), Walter A. Elwell (Wheaton College), Theodore H. Epp (founder Back to the Bible), Gary Friesen (former Dean of Multinomah College), Scholars at the Dallas Theological Seminary, DALLS THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY, TALBOT BIBLE COLLEGE, and the list goes on and on.

Benny Hinn probably is banned from the UK because time and time again he has been proven to be a false teacher.

Just today I was watching what lies he would spread.

Benny Hinn claims to have the power to heal sickness and disease, yet today on his show he had one of his doctors.

If Benny has the power to heal as he claims, why does he need doctors.
---Rob on 10/6/09

He is not the first. It also happened to a very conservative Christian musician who is not at all radical like Hinn.

I can see how the UK might be a bit protective given Hinn's calls for "donations" that will make himself rich.

I mean, so what if the government over there gets involved in deciding what is and is not a legitimate ministry. If he has no sponsor, then he has no credibility according to their rules.
---obewan on 10/6/09

Fellow bloggers,
This post was taken off the Internet and while I certainly do not approve of Benny
Hinn I thought it was interesting that he had to obtain a letter of sponsorship.
Yes I have been in the UK my wife and I flew to London and we spent 3 1/2 weeks traveling in England and Scotland.
I was sorely disappointed in the man on the street and his lack of biblical knowledge in England.
Here are a people who rule the world or 1500 years but after 1500 years freedom of expression about religious matters has evaporated resulting in very little knowledge about the Lord Jesus Christ.

Can you tell us what "state-approved" churches there are in the UK?\\

Indeed, mima.

Can you tell us what state approved church was supposed to vouch for Hinn?

I don't really care for Benny Hinn. What was so extreme about him?
---amand6348 on 10/5/09

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, as a sovereign nation, can allow anyone to enter it wishes--or exclude anyone.

Now, mima, are you asking a question, or simply making a statement?
---Cluny on 10/5/09

Mima ... Have you ever been to the UK?

Can you tell us what "state-approved" churches there are in the UK?
