Benny Hinn – Miracle Service in Durban – 13 Mar 2010
Benny Hinn is Back is South Africa
To Con the living daylights out of People who don’t read their bibles.
So Benny ‘$1000, that’s $1000 for salvation, $1000, …going…going…gone. Sold to the man in the back’ Hinn is back in SA. Woe to us.
If words don’t get the message across, maybe a little cartoon will. The below two cartoons are from Sundays English and Afrikaans newspapers – 2010-02-27.
The Afrikaans version of the cartoon below, is different from the English version. Did they censor it so as to not offend their readers? Do they think English people can handle the truth and Afrikaans people can’t? Or what? I’m confused…
More rabid rabbits from Hinn’s heresy hat – Yikes!!
Benny Hinn Strikes Again on TBN!
More rabid rabbits from Hinn’s heresy hat
by Bud Press, Director
Christian Research Service
June 20, 2010
Those who tuned in to the Trinity Broadcasting Network’s Monday, May 3 telecast listened to Benny Hinn pull a verbal stream of rabid rabbits from his hat of many heresies.
The telecast, titled Angels, was hosted by the spiritually disturbed Paul Crouch, Sr., and his equally disturbed son Paul Crouch, Jr. When Paul Crouch, Sr. turned the always disturbing Benny Hinn loose on the TBN audience, they sat wide-eyed and mesmerized as Hinn thrilled and chilled them with his usual disturbing and foreign-to-the-Bible statements.
And what did Benny Hinn teach during the almost two hour telecast?
* the pre-Adamic age (gap theory).
* the existence of Neanderthal man (evolution).
* angels and free will (both heavenly and demonic).
* Christians having a free will in heaven, and the need for Jesus to pray for Christians in heaven–to keep them saved.
For detailed information on Benny Hinn’s gap theory and Neanderthal man, refer to the Recommended Reading section at the end of this article.
Indeed, there are serious ramifications to what Benny Hinn said and taught. No doubt that his teachings caused confusion and great fear in many of his followers.
Free will in heaven?
The following word-for-word transcript is from the May 3, 2010 TBN telecast at http://tinyurl.com/34wzkg7 . The transcript begins at 1:36:03 into the telecast and ends at 1:37:26. In it, Benny Hinn clearly demonstrates his reckless abandon of Scripture, regardless of how damaging it may be:
Benny Hinn: And angels to this day can decide to rebel against God.
Paul Crouch, Jr.: Even now.
Benny Hinn: Even now!
Paul Crouch, Jr.: That was one of the questions, “Do angels have free will?”
Benny Hinn: Yes, they have free will. That’s why a third of them chose to not serve God.
Paul Crouch, Jr.: Even today.
Benny Hinn: Even today.
Paul Crouch, Jr.: Wow!
Benny Hinn: And may I add, this is, uh, this is something that is gonna cause a lot of questions: Why is Jesus gonna pray for you forever? If you’re in heaven why does He need to pray for you?
Paul Crouch, Sr.: He maketh intercession for the saints?
Benny Hinn: Forever!
Paul Crouch, Sr.: According to the will of God.
Benny Hinn: But forever. Why forever?
Paul Crouch, Sr.: Why?
Benny Hinn: To keep us obedient.
Paul Crouch, Sr.: Cause?
Benny Hinn: We will have a free will in glory.
Paul Crouch, Sr.: Whoa!
Paul Crouch, Jr.: And could change our mind.
Benny Hinn: Exactly.
Paul Crouch, Sr.: Oh! Benny!
Paul Crouch, Jr.: Wow. Now that’s heavy.
Paul Crouch, Sr.: I mean, I’m underwater right now.
Paul Crouch, Jr.: That’s deep!
Benny Hinn: That is heavy! When you get to heaven, when you get to heaven, only His prayer will keep you there.
Paul Crouch, Jr.: Wow!
Benny Hinn: He intercedes for us forever. You had better ask your-yourself, Wait! If I’m in, in heaven, why do I need prayer by the Son of God Himself?
Paul Crouch, Jr.: That’s right.
Benny Hinn: To keep me saved in heaven! To keep me in the presence of God!
[At this point, Paul Crouch, Sr. asks Paul Crouch, Jr. “Have you ever heard that?” Paul Crouch, Jr. answers, “No. I have never…”]
Paul Crouch, Sr.: [looks at the audience and asks] How many have never heard that before? Let me see your hands. [As the camera pans the audience, many hands are raised]
Benny Hinn: Well, why would He pray forever?
Paul Crouch, Sr.: Well, of course.
Paul Crouch, Jr.: Interesting. It’s good.
[End of transcript]
Like his father, Paul Crouch, Jr.’s level of discernment is three digits lower than a houseplant. What Benny Hinn taught is neither interesting or good. It is repulsive and detestable, and further demonstrates Hinn’s vivid and fertile imagination, as well as his ability to sell people the shirts off their own backs.
It is important to note that during his diatribe, Benny Hinn failed to include Scriptural references to back his teachings. He couldn’t, because there are none! As with all false teachers, Hinn depends on the failure of his followers to study God’s written word and apply the Biblical test (1 Thessalonians 5:21).
But for the record, the following passage of Scripture solidly refutes what Hinn said to untold numbers of TBN followers worldwide:
Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP in victory” (1 Corinthians 15:50-54, NASB).
Do Christians have a free will and the sin nature (ability to sin)? Yes. Do Christians sin? Yes. Are Christians to confess sin and seek God’s forgiveness? Yes (1 John 1:6-10). Once in heaven, will Christians have the sin nature? NO!
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself (Philippians 3:20-21).
Heaven is the paradise of God. For the Christian, there will be no tears or death, no grieving or pain, and no sin (Revelation chapter 21). Take the words of Jesus Christ to heart:
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand (John 10:27-29).
Sadly, those who believe what Benny Hinn said might think, If I have a free
will in heaven, that means I have the ability to sin. And if I sin in heaven, will I
be cast out of heaven and into hell? So, why bother going to heaven in the first
place? Why bother being a Christian?
These are the serious ramifications to what Benny Hinn said and taught during the telecast. Words have the ability to build up or tear down, and no doubt that Hinn’s words caused confusion and fear in the minds of the innocent and gullible.
Therefore, where does the Bible teach: 1. Christians will have a free will in heaven? 2. When in heaven, Christians can change their minds? 3. Jesus will pray for Christians in heaven forever to keep Christians obedient, saved, and in God’s presence? Simply put, it doesn’t.
But as long as people adore, listen to, defend, and financially support Benny Hinn Ministries, Hinn will continue to use words to distort the Bible to his own destruction, and the destruction of his followers (2 Peter 3:13-18).
Rules to live by–and die for
Over the years, the damage Benny Hinn has done to the cause of Christ has spread beyond the church and branched out into the secular world. Across the internet, the unsaved think Benny Hinn is a joke. They wrongfully equate Benny Hinn with Christianity, and get plenty of laughs along the way through his on-stage shenanigans and circus-like performances.
Those who follow Benny Hinn and abide by the Word of Faith rules and regulations live in a world of make-believe, and a constant state of anxiety and upheaval. The simplicity that is in Christ and the peace and confidence He provides is replaced by suspicion, fear, paranoia, and depression.
Those caught up in the Word of Faith movement have been conditioned into believing a lie, and brainwashed into accepting Word of Faith prophets and teachers as their ultimate and final authority. Behind the scenes, those who separate from the Word of Faith movement find themselves alone and hurting, shunned and denounced by family and friends, and looked upon as reprobates, unfit to open a Bible and call themselves Christian.
The savagery of deception is without sympathy and compassion.
As far as Benny Hinn’s followers are concerned, to disagree with Hinn and deny his teachings is to “attack” the “anointed” and deny the very words of God. To step away from the Word of Faith movement and renounce its teachings is considered apostasy, with hell as the only alternative.
Live by the rules, or die. Life in the cults is no different.
Benny Hinn is not only a false prophet and false teacher, he is a fear-monger who instills fear into the minds of his followers. Those who fall for Hinn’s intimidation tactics are doomed to live their lives in fear, night and day, while looking over their shoulders for a demon behind every tree.
During the May 3 TBN telecast, Benny Hinn had his followers
sitting at his feet, applauding him, and bobbing their heads up and down in approval. They were so anesthetized and absorbed in what Hinn was saying that he could have announced that he was three-eyed frog from the Mormon planet Kolob, and his followers would have bobbed their heads up and down in agreement.To live by Word of Faith rules is to die a slow, agonizing death, eaten alive spiritually on the inside, where the heart and soul dwells.
What more does the Word of Faith movement have to do to convince its followers that it isn’t Christian? What more does Benny Hinn have to say and do to convince his followers he is not of God?
Final comments: For those who support TBN
The introduction to the Trinity Broadcasting Network’s telecasts informs the viewer that,
The following program is produced and sponsored by you, the TBN partners, and is only made possible through your generous support.
The Trinity Broadcasting Network is the largest promoter of fake prophets, fake teachers, and fake healers on the planet. If you are a TBN partner, or even an occasional contributor, keep in mind that it is your money that supports the savage wolves that growl and howl on the TBN airways.
By the way, what more does TBN have to do to prove it isn’t Christian?

El Marie, thank you for bringing this to our attention. Most of us can’t stomach watching The Blasphemy Network. What really is grievous to me is that there is such a mixture of truth and error to fool the undiscerning.
This is beyond the pale – we can lose our salvation in heaven? And no one challenges this? Even for Hinn this is out there. Deception breeds more deception.
Why in the world do men of great reputation such as Chuck Smith, Greg Laurie, David Jeremiah and others see the need to fraternize with these heretics – not Hinn, but appearing on TBN. Is there any difference? Just asking.

A discernment site could also be dangerous espescially if they cannot give proof for their findings and I have found some of them on the internet, they are then false discernment sites. We are to test absolutely everything to see whether it proceed for God. I cannot stress that enough. 1 Thessalonians 5:21
Echoing those words of wisdom! There are many wolves out there dressed up like sheep declaring about the Rapture and claiming to have discernment, but have no more savvy than a dinner roll. A good test is to see to whom they link. I have seen one site that looks good on the surface but promotes false teachers and links to them. Be VERY careful!!
That is soooooooooooo interesting you say that. While on my vacation (which I am still on by the way lol) I realised that anyone who tries to stop this website or me for that matter or anyone else who speaks the gospel truth is scared. Note to: Dion Forster and Thomas Scarborough.
