Binny Hinn Fraud and Scams - Televangelist Pastor Benny Hinn is a fraud, scam, divorcee, and cheat?

"Televangelist Pastor Benny Hinn is a fraud, scam, divorcee, and cheat.

 Benny Hinn preys on weak-minded people to convince them he can use “faith-healing” to cure their illnesses so that they donate over $100,000,000 per year to support his extraordinarily lavish lifestyle.

 Hinn flies around in a Gulfstream G4SP valued at $36,000,000 and costing $600,000 more per year to operate and maintain. He lives in a lavish multimillion dollar house in a very wealthy area of Dana Point (a beachfront property in Orange County).

 Benny Hinn misuses money given to him by unsuspecting people, usually elderly, who have been suckered into his spiel. Benny Hinn uses only a portion of the funds that he receives to further Christian goals- instead he funnels much of the money to himself, unrelated political causes, and his friends and relatives."

"n 2001 HBO showed a documentary called “A Question of Miracles” on faith healer Benny Hinn and actually investigated to find out whether any of Benny Hinn’s supposed faith healings actually happened. The director Antony Thomas, a dedicated and sincere Christian, said, “If I had seen miracles, I would have been happy to trumpet it… but in retrospect, I think Hinn does more damage to Christianity than teh most committed atheist.”

In 2004, CBC Television did a special “Do You Believe In Miracles” detailing many transgressions and sins committed by Benny Hinn’s scam. They used hidden cameras and many crusade attendees to show that Benny Hinn lied, misappropriated church funds for personal use, and used security guards dressed as church members in suits to keep truly ill audience members from approaching the stage. Using extensive interviews they showed that people with outwardly obvious illnesses, such as cerabral palsy and paralysis, were not allowed to come to the stage to be healed.

Again in 2005 another organization, Ministry Watch- an evangelical Christian organization that reviews Christian ministries finances- issued a Donor Alert declaring “the reported exorbinant spending of the Hinn family reveals that Benny Hinn Ministries has far more money than it needs” and advised Christians to “withold contributions to Benny Hinn” and “pray for his repentance”.

Only a year later Benny Hinn Ministries sent out a mailer asking for donations to getting Hinn a new jet to replace his old one. Apparently the old one didn’t have nice enough of cup holders for him."
