Declaring that the “Holy Ghost is just fed up with it,” controversial televangelist Benny Hinn, formerly one of the most aggressive proponents of the prosperity gospel, has for the first time in his career, delivered a full-throated rejection of the Prosperity Gospel that made him and his family millions.
To me, there is no greater illustration of what Jesus meant when He prophesied about the last days church being “lukewarm” and “full of wealth” than the Charismatic Movement. And in that movement, to me, there is no greater example of a fake, phony, false teacher and preacher con artist than Benny Hinn. After a lifetime of fleecing his followers out of hundreds of millions of dollars, Benny Hinn has now ‘officially renounced’ the Prosperity Gospel. For those of you who can remember the Arsenio Hall Show, this is one of those things that makes you go “hmmm”. 🤔
“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:1-3 (KJV)
Benny Hinn is a laughable fraud who pretends to be able to heal people, he can’t, pretends to prophesy, he can’t, and has been almost like a living cartoon every since he started his ‘ministry’. Look at the videos at the bottom of this article to see what I mean. Now he is telling us that the Holy Ghost is “fed up” with the Prosperity Gospel and is renouncing it. Well, that’s a good start, I guess, but the prosperity part is only one aspect of Hinn’s patently false “clowns feeding the goats” gospel. Hinn is a charlatan who has never preached the gospel of the grace of God one day in his life, and now Charisma Magazine wants us to regard Hinn as some kind of a “brave hero” for finally telling a partial truth?
Benny Hinn is a fake from top to bottom, and if he was really sincere he would immediately step down from pretending to be a minister of the word of God. He has never preached Bible truth one day in his life. He learned how to become a phony faith healer from Charismatic fraud Kathryn Kuhlman when he was 21, and ever since that day has used the Bible to create a multimillion dollar global empire. His dramatic renunciation of the Prosperity Gospel might have a little more weight to it if he wasn’t holding onto his ill-gotten millions.
Benny Hinn boldly declared that the prosperity gospel is literally making him “sick to my stomach”
FROM CHARISMA MAGAZINE: Benny Hinn showed an enormous amount of courage when he completely repudiated the “prosperity gospel” on Monday night during a Facebook Live broadcast. This represents a 180-degree turn for his ministry, and it could be a watershed moment for American evangelical Christianity as a whole. For decades, an extreme emphasis on wealth and prosperity has virtually drowned out the message of the cross on Christian television, and this has greatly damaged the evangelical movement. Having high profile leaders such as Benny Hinn renounce the “prosperity gospel” would do much to heal the damage that has been done, and he should be greatly applauded for his public repentance.
Of course, a lot of people out there are going to be skeptical, and that is unfortunate. Forgiveness is available to everyone no matter what they may have been through in the past, and we should all remember that there is literally nobody alive that is not in need of grace.

In addition, it is important to remember that ministries are always going to need resources in order to fulfill the Great Commission, and believers should always be supporting those ministries that are doing a great job of preaching the gospel. But the “prosperity gospel” twisted what the Bible says about giving into a message that appealed to the flesh, and Benny Hinn has now completely rejected that message. The following comes from the Christian Post:
Declaring that the “Holy Ghost is just fed up with it,” controversial televangelist Benny Hinn, formerly one of the most aggressive proponents of the prosperity gospel, has for the first time in his career, delivered a full-throated rejection of the practice that made him and his family millions.
The prosperity gospel teaches, among other things, that believers have a right to the blessings of health and wealth, and they can obtain these blessings through positive confessions of faith and the “sowing of seeds” through the faithful payments of tithes and offerings.
And Hinn didn’t stop there. At one point during his Monday night message, he boldly declared that the prosperity gospel is literally making him “sick to my stomach”:
He said that “it is an offense to the Lord, it’s an offense to say, ‘Give $1,000.’ I think it’s offense to the Holy Spirit to place a price on the Gospel. I’m done with it.”
At one point, Hinn asked viewers “Am I shocking you?”
“Giving has become such a gimmick it’s making me sick to my stomach,” he said. “And I’ve been sick for a while too, I just couldn’t say it.”
After all this time, Hinn says the way he views “prosperity” has completely changed. During his message, he pointed out that the great heroes in the Bible didn’t have lots of wealth:
“Did Elijah the prophet have a car? No. Did not even have a bicycle. He had no lack. … Did Jesus drive a car or live in a mansion? No. He had no lack. How about the apostles? None lacked among them,” Hinn said. “Today, the idea is abundance and palatial homes and cars and bank accounts. The focus is wrong … It’s so wrong.”
It would have been really easy for Hinn to continue to preach the prosperity gospel because that is what he has done throughout almost his entire career.
But in the final analysis, he was very afraid about what God would say once he got to heaven:
Toward the end of the clip, the 66-year-old told viewers, “I don’t want to get to heaven and be rebuked. I think it’s time we say it like its: The gospel is not for sale.”
What really matters is how we end the race, and Benny Hinn should be greatly, greatly applauded for setting himself on a new path. READ MORE
