Yes, A-men Lea.
---Eloy on 8/20/10


Lin:

Please don't be offended by Eloy's calling you a "mudslinger". I've been called worse.

For example, there are always Benny Hinn, and/or other swindler's, supporters asking for money. Even at church. Someone will have a stack of "donation cards" and ask me if I'll make a donation. When I say NO, and explain my reasons for saying NO, I often feel like I get attacked. With one-line comments like:

Unfaithful
Wimp
Blasphemous
Liar
Backslider

I just reply "God doesn't like your foul language there" and walk away.
---Sag on 8/19/10


Eloy.........its like spittin in the wind to try and make sense to people that don't know Jesus. Let them hold on to their money and their ideas, but when it comes to where the rubber meets the road and that will be judgment day and God says depart from me your workers of iniquity i never knew you, then and only then will they see where they went wrong. Its all about them and what they think Me Me Me and I I I .......Charity and Love, God knows their hearts. God have Mercy upon their souls. A bunch of you on here need to get saved, filled with the Holy Ghost with evidence of talking in tongues then you will know this man called Jesus Christ.
---Lea on 8/18/10


Lin, mud-slinging is what a nonChristian does to a Christian with their evil words. I suggest that you become a Christian so that you will be able to properly discern truth from error. For Christians with proven track records of virtue, are not equated to nonChrstian murderers like Jim Jones.
---Eloy on 8/19/10


I realize it is not a popular thing to discuss or disagree with the tactics of our so-called faith leaders. As Elroy called my discussing my thoughts on this blog topic as 'mudslinging', I often wonder if those hundreds of followers of 'Jim Jones' were questioned or approached by those who could discern that their faith in their leader was deceiving and ultimately lead to their loss of their money, and in the end, death. I wonder how many of those who warned were also called a 'mudslinger'??
---Lin on 8/18/10




Lin, it is not only for Benny Hinn only to minister to the sick in the hospitals, but if you are a Christian then it is commanded to you to go and minister to the sick also. Have you visited and prayed for any one in the hospitals, or are you like so many dissers that are antiChristian and antiChrist which are too preoccupied with slinging mud at God's children that you have no time to obey God?
---Eloy on 8/17/10


Rob, Ministry Watch and ECFA are outside entities which concern themselves with how Christian ministries whom have not solicited them manage their own private monies, which is 100% none of these two entities business. I myself do not personally need any strange outsider whom themself claims to be Christian, and holds tax exempt status, to tell me whether or not a reputable Christian ministry is worthy of my personal donations I give to them or not. That is like asking a complete stranger whether or not your reputable brother or sister is really your brother or sister, and whether or not your brother or sister is faithful with their own money, it is 100% none of the stranger's business. And so I would not trust any word they say.
---Eloy on 8/18/10


There are innocent people in jails as I write this, and the sinners whom have put them there are held accountable in this life. God does not like ugly, and if these wicked people who wrest judgment and bear false witness against the inncoent do not repent in this life, they will most assuredly be held accountable and pay the eternal price in the next life to come.
---Eloy on 8/18/10


Eloy, what if the sick are too sick to seek 'the healer'? Those in ICU or critical units? If Brother Hinn can waive a jacket and blow someone to the floor, why not he blow on those that are already flat on their backs in the hospitals? He wants the sick-so there they are! Also, the secular tabloids exposed Tilton, Popoff and W.V. Grant as well. And jail time was issued for at least one of them. And jail time surely aint fiction!
---Lin on 8/17/10


Eloy, based on the people and ministries you support and defend, I would like to hear your thoughts about Ministry Watch and the EFCA.
---Rob on 8/17/10




The ill are to seek out the healer, God the healer does not have to seek out all the sick: and God does not heal all, especially the antiGod and antiChrist people whom are rightly sick.
---Eloy on 8/17/10


\\My thinking is: if ANY of the so-called faith healers want to 'do the will of God' - then why don't they go into any hospital in any location, and walk right in to the sick patients and walk over to them and touch them and pray to heal them? Why do they have to have an audience in huge auditoriums?\\

That is basically what I told a friend of mine.

One of these fly-by-nights with a traveling dog and pony show prophesied over her that she would have a "healing ministry."

I told her, "Lady, you're a nurse! You already have a healing ministry!"
---Cluny on 8/17/10


cluny

if that church is suffering from lack of equipment but a televangelist like benny has luxury SUV & private jet, then you know why that church his suffering unable to provide to those who need it.

benny hinns private jet can provide for 100 beds, 10000 toilet paper
his mercedes SUV can provide for food & cloting

but many prosperity christians are blinded & brainwashed to believe hinn, copeland, dollar that they defend these prosperity televangelist to the death.

this is NOT LACK OF FAITH but just common sense.

Lin, supermarket tabloids is not gospel, but on the same caliber level as comic book entertainment. Read the Holy Bible, rather than the fiction in supermaket tabloids.
---Eloy on 8/17/10


The secular supermarket tabloids had huge pictures of Benny Hinn casually walking, close hand-in-hand, with a shorts-wearing Paula White, the both in Italy together. It was closeup shots and definitely the two of them together, front and rear shots. As I said below, the only people these evangelists fool are the church folks, because the secular world know their own AND ARE WATCHING.

I didn't hear Benny say such a thing but good grief Rob its one train wreck after another.
First the whole waving white jacket and blowing people over thing, then the bitter departure from his Orlando congregation for the promise land in Texas, followed by the collapse of his Texas-based ministry, the failure of his marriage and now this?

Hinn is either getting his comeuppance or under the trials of Job.

I can't be the judge but his flamboyance is eyebrow raising.
---larry on 8/16/10


My thinking is: if ANY of the so-called faith healers want to 'do the will of God' - then why don't they go into any hospital in any location, and walk right in to the sick patients and walk over to them and touch them and pray to heal them? Why do they have to have an audience in huge auditoriums? Why not just go to the nursing homes and hospitals and bring the power of the Lord in there? Why don't they do that? They won't because most of them want the money and attraction . . . . like a circus big top . . . Funny thing is that worldly people (secular folks) KNOW instinctively that these healing folks aren't nothing . . . the Benny Hinns of the world only fool the church folks!
---Lin on 8/16/10


\\Like church requests for more money to "furnish" homes with beds.\\

I once worked in such a church facility--a home for people who needed to be looked after who otherwise fell through the cracks of other agencies.

Believe me when I say that everything from furniture to TVs to beds to kitchen equipment was always breaking down and had to be replaced.

Sometimes it was from abuse. Sometimes it was from simply not being able to buy the good quality, heavy duty things needed, and they simply could not last long enough and frequently needed replacing.

And for some things, such as sheets, towels, clothes, and food, there were always crying needs.
---Cluny on 8/16/10

so how come benny hinn has millions of $$$$$? is he really preaching the good news or using it to enrich himself?

i have experienced from christianity/christians that 'self' is a sin & to 'be contented' with what you have. but how come he does not practice what he preach? he has a mercedes SUV, private jet & multi million $$$ home?

Robyn:

Benny Hinn is just one of these questionable folks. There are TOO MANY to list in this short blog reply.

I'm just, plain out, sick-and-tired of being the "sucker". Often, I learned that my time, and monetary donations, were used for not-so-good things. Like "slain in the spirit" services, and/or "holy laughter" prayer meetings.

In hindsight, I feel like I was "brainwashed" into going to a "casino" and "gambling". All in the name of God. "Gambling" isn't good for you.

I don't believe that God likes anyone to give HIM a "bad" name. Not Benny Hinn or anyone else. God doesn't "use" and "abuse" HIS children.
---Sag on 8/16/10


Robyn, you are 100% correct in saying Benny Hinn's ministry is his own personal ministry.

It is not about God, it is about Benny Hinn and how much money Benny Hinn can scam from people by deceiving them.

Benny Hinn's ministry is not of, or from the Lord.
---Rob on 8/16/10


I don't understand the big deal about Benny Hinn. Either you give or you don't! No one can force you to give this man anything! Most certainly, your money. Being divorced has nothing to do with his ministry. This is his personal ministry. Look like he's doing ok, to me. I will keep my little money right where it is. In my pocketbook. We do have choices. If you do not trust this man and feel he is not Godsent. Don't have anything to do with him or his ministry. Very simple thing to do.
---Robyn on 8/16/10


Cluny:

You, and I, may not agree on some things. Like church requests for more money to "furnish" homes with beds.

However, I appreciate you advice on things like "slain in the spirit" being from demons, and "holy laughter" being shameful.

I always felt "dirty and ashamed" after those events. That was years ago, but there are always some folks who tell me that that was because I have some "hidden sin". Like what Job's friends told him.

Now I know better than to be involved with that crap.

Here's what the Bible says about holy laughter:

Psalm 70:3
Let them be turned back because of their shame,Who say, Aha, aha!

In other words, the Bible says the practice is shameful.

"[un]holy laughter". "Getting drunk in the spirit" is taken very literally by many of these churches
---Ignatius on 8/15/10

I once went to a prayer meeting where everyone -- but me -- was laughing uncontrollably. The leader asked me WHY I wasn't laughing. My reply: "I Don't Know!" The leader warned me that "I was backsliding". Oh, Really?

I have attended evening church services where the preacher ORDERED everyone to stay until s/he dismissed us. Well, once I started nodding off, I always left. I almost fell asleep "behind the wheel". I wonder if the cops would take "a long evening church service" as an acceptable reason for a fatal accident. I doubt it!
---Sag on 8/15/10


"Some of that is good, some demonic."-Sag

I find the all the drama being done in Pentecostal/Charismatic circles not good. There theology is not Apostolic. Go to youtube and find all the videos about their so called "[un]holy laughter". Some scary stuff goes on in many of these Churches. "Getting drunk in the spirit" is taken very literally by many of these churches, to the point that certain people are physically intoxicated after the service....now ask yourself, is this disorderly conduct from God?

It is very easy for one who not firmly rooted in the Living Tradition of the Church to get deceived by these sects. Do some research on one of the early heresy, Montanism.

I still feel like a naughty litte kid for trusting some preachers, giving money, helping with tasks, letting myself be "slain in the spirit", and my sarcastic "joking" about getting drunk -- in the spirit -- at the meetings. Some of that is good, some demonic.

What can I say? I'm more knowledgeable about what is truly from GOD, and what is NOT. I also know that I need to "do my homework" before running off to any preacher's church, meeting, etc. GOD has forgiven me!

I would think that churches and ministries don't like getting a "black" mark on their name, though.

\\The tell tale difference is the fruit. Certainly no man can stand before God and not be changed.
---Linda on 8/15/10\\

That is very true.
---Cluny on 8/15/10


Slain in the spirit? ~NO! This practice is extra-biblical, dangerous & uncharacteristic of God as seen in the Bible. Many adherents of this anti-Christ practice have been deceived & have taken Scripture out of context by believing the devil's lie regarding being slain in the spirit. Yet, the entire Bible is about God coming into the lives of believers to make us alive (to quicken/regenerate our spirit ~ to save our soul). But, the enemy of our soul comes to "steal, KILL (SLAY), & destroy." God only "slays" His enemies!!!

\\To say Gods Spirit cant come upon a man and totally overpower so a man cant stand is wrong. No man stands before God.

The Bible says this:

Luke 21:36
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. [Who is God Incarnate.]

I'm not saying that God's Spirit cannot come upon a person and leave him unable to stand.

What I'm asking is this: Is it really God's Spirit that is operating in the phenomenon called "slain in the spirit".

This, btw, is a fairly new practice.

Benny Hinn:
A. Go to bank. B. Show picture I.D., and say 'withdraw two million dollars from my account please'. C. If funds are insufficient - hold garage sale. (For sale cheap, used Gulfstream IV, mansion overlooking pacific, various low mileage German luxury cars, and miscellaneous other mammon). All items super anointed personally by Benny.
Wait - if Mr. Hinn is asking you for money, doesn't that mean in Word of Faith speak that he lacks faith? No wait, you need "faith", he only needs your money.
p.s. Mr.Hinn has been under Church discipline for decades and still refuses to repent, that means it is a sin to support him financially.

"To say Gods Spirit cant come upon a man and totally overpower so a man cant stand is wrong. No man stands before God."(duade)

Being "Slain in the Spirit" is not biblical and it is nothing more than demonic activity.

anon,

"All I can say is: When God shows up, His Power is overwhelming, we have no choice but to fall."

Those Scriptures have been dealt with. Being "slain in the Spirit" as understood by modern day Pentecostals/Charismatics is not in Holy Scriptures. The phrase is man-made.

I know many would like us to believe that their wild babbling, voodoo dancing, and unconsciousness (which often accompanying being "slain in the Spirit") are from God, but those who part of Pre-Reformation Apostolic Churches knows that such are demonic activity.

All I can say is: When God shows up, His Power is overwhelming, we have no choice but to fall.

Wait till you see Him in Heaven, do you really think you can just "Stand" in His presence? You are going to fall when you see his Brillance/His Glory/All of Him, including the power that emminates from him. By the breath of his nostrils he divided the waters of the Red Sea.

Come on Gentlemen! You wil fall at His feet when the Power of God comes upon you.

\\Acts 11:15 - And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning\\

It doesn't say that the PEOPLE fell, only that the Holy Spirit fell on them.

Do you grasp the difference? Probably not.

**John 18:6 - ...

Acts 9:4 -...**

These were UNBELIEVERS (as Saul was at that point), not believers. And those who fell in these cases were still conscious of their surroundings.

I've seen too many women "slain in the spirit" who had enough presence of mind to hold onto their wigs to think it's anything truly of the Holy Spirit.

"OH YES THERE IS CLUNY!!!-Acts 11:15, John 18:6 " (Anon)

There is no such thing as being "slain in the Spirit". The very phrase itself is man-made. The Scriptures you posted say no such thing and doesn't come close to what is being experience in Pentecostal/Charismatic circles, with often involved Holy Laughter and demonic motions.

I grew up in the Pentecostal home, and what I saw in my own Pentecostal Church as well of the tons I visited are demonic possession.

John 18:6 & Acts 9:4 doesn't describe something that was experience by ALL Christians.

Let me attempt to clear things up.

I now question my "slain in the spirit" experiences at those Benny Hinn events, and my former churches. Many people, myself included, OBEYED the ORDERS of the Pastor, and/or Benny Hinn, to fall under the power of: [ whatever ]. In other words, it was "questionable" just what the source was. Man? God?

In the Bible, the Book of Acts describes a REAL experience with the Holy Spirit.

There is a difference. I wish that I had known all that earlier. Oh well, live-and-learn.

I recommend using tools like Ministry Watch. They track about 500 national and international ministries and Christian Aid programs. They collect financial statements and evaluate the programs. They can tell you which programs are better stewards then others.

They also have Donor Alert List if programs that don't report financial usage of their organization to the public.

If you are an individual making donations or a member of a board of a non- convectional church this is one of the best tools I can recommend to evaluate alternative programs you might wish to fund. Find their web site and read how thy make their evaluations I think you will be favorably impressed.

Rob,

Money isn't the only issue here.

I once "volunteered" to be an usher at a Benny Hinn event. My ORDERS were to physically catch, from behind them, people who were "slain in the spirit". Halleujah! God was using me at a powerful Benny Hinn event.

Well, trouble struck when I either "disobeyed" my ORDERS, was "unable" to fulfill them, or some combination of both. I almost ended up in a court room.

I just couldn't catch a woman that Benny Hinn prayed for. She must have weighed at least 500 lbs. I'm guessing. It sounded like a bomb as she CRASHED to the cement floor.

I was scolded for embarrassing Benny Hinn's ministry. Opps! Me so sorry.

Sag, I UNDERSTAND AND CAN RELATE TO YOUR ANGER.

There was a time when I was caught up in THE FALSE TEACHING OF THE WOF. To this day, I THANK GOD HE OPENNED MY EYES TO THE TRUTH AND RESCUED ME FROM THESE PEOPLE.

I also become very angry when I see how these people DiSTORT and PERVERT GOD'S WORD. THEY DECEIVE, SEDUCE AND BRAINWASH PEOPLE FOR THEIR OWN SELFISH AND PERSONAL GAIN.

What is so very, very sad and makes me very angry is there are so many, many people who are caught up in these FALSE TEACHERS.

This is because they will never follow the instruction found in 2 Timothy 2 :14-19, or follow the example found in Acts 17:11.

PLEASE JOIN ME IN EXPOSING AND SHARING THE TRUTH REGARDING THESE FALSE TEACHERS!
---Rob on 8/11/10


Rob: I attended a church where the pastor started using Hinn's tactics. Eventually, he was talking down to the congregation & calling us peanut brains, speaking gibberish, slaying people in the spirit, hard selling tithing, etc.

Hinn is a modern day Simon the Sorceror. (Acts 8:9-23) He preys upon (makes merchandise of) people for his own personal gain.

False teachers tactically manipulate (cunningly exploit) ~ intimidate (bully) ~ & dominate (control, subjucate people's soul). In short, they BEWITCH anyone foolish enough to be enchanted by their Simony. They glaze over (wax n polish, simonize) the minds of anyone gulible enough to believe them. They're masters at playing SIMON SAYS!!!

Rob,

Your blog postings make me angry, because:

I was a SUCKER who once believed these FALSE TEACHERS' lies that I was being "faithful" by giving them money:

Jim Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart, and Benny Hinn.

These guys are very lucky that the Bible requires me to "forgive" them and "pray for my enemies".

Fool me once, shame on you guys. Fool me twice . . . I've learned the HARD way about your un-Godly lying ways. I wonder if they care about what the Bible says about "fleecing their flocks".

Shame on you Benny and don't bother asking me again for money. Got that?
---Sag on 8/11/10


\\However, I have trouble with the church constantly asking for more money to furnish these homes: pianos, TVs, furniture, beds, vehicles, etc. It seems like the needs for these things never end. Hmmm. The number of church-owned homes hasn't increase much.\\

As we all know, Sag, pianos, electronic appliances (especially TVs), beds, furntiure, and vehicles NEVER wear out and have to be replaced, do they?

And to give a possible scenario, if a 25 bed Church sponsored facility needs 25 beds, should they stop asking for help if they receive donations to buy just two beds? Where will the other 23 sleep?
---Cluny on 8/11/10


Donna, another good point you made is is "Why is Benny Hinn asking man for money and not God?"

I don't remember what year it was, but on Benny Hinn's program This Is Your Day, he had Myles Munroe as his guest.

They said God does not tell them what to do. They tell God what to do because God is illegal here on earth.

They said God cannot do any work on earth unless it is done through them and with their permmssion.

Since he tells God what to do, why doesn't Benny Hinn tell God to drop him 2 Million Dollars from the sky.
---Rob on 8/11/10


AMEN Leon, 8/11/10.

First time I turned him on the tube and HIS name was all flashed up on the screen showing him healing people left and right, my first thought was...

Why isnt the name of Jesus being flashed on the screen, since the Lord is doing all the healing thru him? I mean what man could take credit for a work that God has done. Thatd be like us saying we were co-designers of the plan for Christ to be crucified for all mankiind.

I think Hinn is a fake and a crook as are *most* TV evangelists. (Matt 7:22)

Benny Hinn should also sell his many mansions luxury vehicles, and expensive jewelry.

I remember many years ago Benny Hinn told people if they did not send him money he would place a curse on them. Apparently God has finally got tired of Benny Hinn and placed a curse on him.

Benny Hinn, along with others of the Prosperity/Word of Faith Movement tell people if they want a blessing from God, they must give their money first.

I guess Benny Hinn has not been giving but only taking.

I have a problem: People all over this nation sending money to foreign places, some are voodoo worshipers, ill respect of that, the people never gets the money. Millions, people are donating all over this world and to each other in this nation, still no one is helped. Where or who gets the money? What is going on here? I shall tell you: Satan is in control of all your hard earned donated money and most everything else in this life. Folks, please be careful. It's better if you go yourself to help someone. I mean, you do trust yourself with your own money. So go yourselves, or keep the money, until you can go....Thank You Jesus+Ahh

Why is Benny asking MAN for money and not GOD??????????? that's my question.

---Donna5535 on 8/11/10

My reply isn't about Benny Hinn, but about churches asking for more money.

I was raised a Catholic and the church owns, and operates, several homes. For children, the elderly, homeless, recovering addicts, etc. That is good.

However, I have trouble with the church constantly asking for more money to furnish these homes: pianos, TVs, furniture, beds, vehicles, etc. It seems like the needs for these things never end. Hmmm. The number of church-owned homes hasn't increase much.

Many of us don't have money to buy entire "new" furnishings each year. At least I don't.

Well, God did call Oral Roberts home eventually, didn't He?

My own reaction to Benny Hinn needing $2 million is that people in Hell need ice water, too.

Or maybe his soon-to-be-ex-wife demands that much in alimony.

Laugher -- The Best Medicine!

Your reply gave me a ROFL -- Rolling On the Floor Laughing -- attack. I hope that I'm not sued for using the title of a copyrighted book there.

I have donated to Benny Hinn's ministry before. When I inquired about how my donations were used, I felt like I was told: It's none of your business.

I concluded that Benny Hinn's request wasn't from God THEN. I conclude the same about his request for $2 million NOW.

Benny apparently doesn't know what the word of God says in this area...."ask (God) not man because your Heavenly Father KNOWS what you NEED before you ask Him, but he wants you to ask HIM, not man."

Now I paraphrased that ALOT, but in Matthew Jesus said, "Your heavenly Father knows what you need BEFORE you ask him."

Why is Benny asking MAN for money and not GOD??????????? that's my question.

I would NOT give Benny a dime! Sorry, that's just me. Tell him to sell his private JET and that will get him his 2 million! Makes me so angry these preachers ask the common man for money!! ASK GOD- HEY BENNY - ASK GOD -see if he gives it to you.

Eloy, I can't ask Benny Hinn because I am not in his cliche or one of his cronies, Romans 1:29-32.

Benny Hinn will not speak to anyone who is not in his group.

Since it is very apparent you support and defend Benny Hinn because you are in his group, why don't you ask Benny Hinn for me.

I'L call & ask him if I can borrow 2 mil & then give it back to him with interest.
---Lawrence on 8/11/10


What Benny Hinn is doing is NOT of God. People should be, and MUST be led by the Holy Spirit with how much, and where and who to give. As Christians we should be, and MUST be living by FAITH in this, for God to supply ALL of our needs. God is NOT moved by our needs, but by our faith.

\\"God has told me that those who have benefited from my ministry must send me $8 million, or HE will call me home!"\\

Well, God did call Oral Roberts home eventually, didn't He?

Sounds like the time, during the 1980's, when Oral Roberts told his followers that:

"God has told me that those who have benefited from my ministry must send me $8 million, or HE will call me home!"

Money immediately flowed into Tulsa, OK in order to prevent Oral Roberts from leaving planet Earth. If I remember correctly, a track racing team owner, or something like that, sent nearly $5 million. Well . . .

I still feel guilty about making my donation. A Tulsa, OK church claimed that the " . . . call me home!" bit was from the Devil, not God. Benny's plea might be from the same source. I don't know.

I wouldn't send Benny a penny. Sorry, no money for Televangelists.
