Benny Hinn Renounces & Regrets Preaching Prosperity Gospel, It Is A Trick
- According to Hinn, Christian religious leaders adopted the gimmick to ‘squeeze’ money out from members of their congregation
- The televangelist says it is an offence to the Holy Spirit to place a price on the gospel, adding that he is done with it
- Hinn says he will never again ask members of his congregation to give $1,000 or whatever amount because the Holy Ghost is fed up with it
It was a rude shock as the world of Christian faith woke up to this neews and confession , Pastor Benny Hinn, renounced the prosperity gospel, which teaches that God rewards active faith with health and wealth. Hinn has taught the controversial doctrine since the 1980s.
Benny Hinn, has said that he is quitting prosperity preaching because the Holy Spirit was fed up with it.
The 66-year-old, who made the announcement during a Facebook live programme earlier in the week, pointed that such preaching was a gimmick adopted by Christian religious leaders to squeeze money out from members of their congregation.
In Christian prosperity faith circle, where prosperity preaching is popular with many Christian leaders, Hinn’s latest position would come as a terrible blow and in fact a bruising swipe at their ‘money for blessing’ scheme.
In Benny Hinn own words
“I’m sorry to say that prosperity has gone a little crazy and I’m correcting my own theology and you need to all know it.
“Because when I read the Bible now, I don’t see the Bible with the same eyes I saw it 20 years ago.
“I think it’s an offense to the Lord, it’s an offense to say give $1,000. I think it’s an offense to the Holy Spirit to place a price on the Gospel. I’m done with it.
“I will never again ask you to give $1,000 or whatever amount, because I think the Holy Ghost is just fed up with it.
“I think it hurts the Gospel. When they invite me to telethons, I think they will not like me anymore.
“If I hear one more time, break the back of debt with $1,000, I’m gonna rebuke them. I think that’s buying the Gospel. That’s buying the blessing. That’s grieving the Holy Spirit.
“If you are not giving because you love Jesus, don’t bother giving. I think giving has become such a gimmick; it’s making me sick to my stomach.”
