Benny Goes Off

Benny Hinn (yes, that Benny Hinn) proves he can pound a pulpit and sling sweat with the greatest of Fundamentalist Baptist preachers. In this jaw dropping clip that is going viral among my sound Christian friends, Hinn chases after Joel Olsteen for teaching a sissified, Christless gospel message, and full on calls his teaching demonic. Each scriptural proclamation punctuated by the crescendo of an organ that drives his point home.

One would be ready to shout "AMEN!" with him if it weren't for those sniggling little problems with Benny, like his soul damning, Health-and-Wealth theology and the lying the man does.

You have to love God right to go to Benny's church, he's hardcore.

When false teachers attack false teachers, it is kinda hard to pick a side. Sure, Osteen breaches a false gospel, but so does Hinn. Pot, meet Kettle...

Plus, think about this: Benny is such a con-artist that he knows that if speaking the truth to certain crowds can bring in more money or power, then he'll speak the truth, but for the wrong reasons (e.g., 1 Corinthians 13:1-3).

Also remember, even Satan knows the truth. Satan and his cohorts can say things that are true if they think it will bring them personal gain.

"And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works" (2 Corinthians 11:14-15).

And don't forget that girl in Acts 16 who went around speaking the truth, even though she was demon possessed.

"This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying, 'These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation'" (Acts 16:17).

Even the demons know some of the truth about Jesus:
"I know who You areā€”the Holy One of God!" (Mark 1:24b; Luke 4:34b)

But here's something else to consider about that video of Hinn. We evangelicals have become so flimsy with our God-given trust of spiritual matters that we can hear a 10 minute soundbyte of Benny Hinn saying the things he said, and be so quick to forget about all the other problems and begin to think that maybe he's on our side! The lesson here is this: Don't form an opinion of someone based on a 10 minute soundbyte.
