Benny Hinn, spreading something.
Staring into the camera with two TBN personalities by his side, televangelist Benny Hinn twice repeated that his wife of 30 years filing for divorce was not brought on by "immorality in my life or my wife's. EVER!"

Some observers believe the pastor was preparing the flock for damning allegations to come.

Judge for yourself here:

Hinn said he would "fight" to the end to protect the ministry he began 30 years ago no matter what, elicting "Amens" and "Praise Gods" from the fellows sitting across from him.

The pastor claimed there were "no biblical grounds" for his wife's divorce filing, adding that it totally surprised him, his and his wife's children and his wife's parents.

"I pray for our precious lord, Jesus Christ, to heal my family," he said.

He asked for prayers from the faithful, and revealed that he and his children are doing well.

"I will do everything I can as a dad to fulfill their destinies in God," Hinn said.

Creepy organ music could be heard playing gently in the background throughout the speech.

After completing his statement, Hinn granted the wish to speak by by one of his two friends. Appearing to be if not the Hair Club for Men president then at least one of its members, the man revealed that he has been around Hinn for 34 years and, "This man of God is clean. . . . [sic] Cleaned as a whistle. . . . Thank you and God for that kind of submittal for God."

Coupled with Hinn's previous immorality denial, it certainly seemed as if followers were being prepared for some big revelation. 

Though he spoke softly and repeatedly mentioned that he still loves his estranged wife Suzanne Hinn, who filed for divorce Feb. 1 in Orange County Superior Court, the pastor spit out words as damning as those in the unsigned statement Benny Hinn Ministries released exactly one week ago.

Please let Pastor Benny know that the products he is selling on his programs are not available because of large volume orders and cannot be back ordered because of the difficulty of locating someone to produce the products according to his Ministry Supervisor "Randy" and our money is not refundable?? What? I ordered a copy of the Tabernacle print Pastor Benny had on his program 1 year ago this month. I was advised by a phone respresentative to just stop payment at my bank?? I explained that it would be bad publicity on Benny Henn Ministries. I called my bank and they laughed and the representatives advice that it had been 6 months and that Benny Henn Ministries had received their (my) money.  I have had the run around, been decieved and out right lied to concerning the Tabernacle print I ordered. I'm honestly heartbroken that I have been deceived by Benny Henn Ministries!!!   Mrs. Charlotte Davis

Benny l know is a man of God, sent by to heal our generation, if Christ himself could be talked about so wrongly, how much more the followers. Bud the truth is that l know God has the final say, because he said in his word that Gods name can not be mocked that what ever a man soweth, that he shall reap. Please the Press here should be careful about the things they say, so they do not incure the wroth of God. ........... Calista

It doesn't surprise me. Evangelists always leave their wife behind. The faithful wife stays at home, never being released in their own Ministry. He never took his wife with him, not ever. The marriages that work are the men that take their wives with them, releasing them, and empowering them in their Ministry calling. He didn't. Since his divorce, he has gone downhill, even critiscising Joel Osteen, who is an amazing man of God, and has released his wife, and they stand side by side. I think that says it all.

You can tell all the success that Benny Hinn has had in healing people , by looking in some of the Cemetaries.  He is a Huckster and a Snake Oil Sales Man

You people hink that Benny Hinn is god almight.  Well he isn't!  I have known Benny for 35 years, before he even Married Suzanne and some of the stories I could tell you would make his own father turn over in his grave.  I wrote a comment (story a few minutes ago but the people reading it before it went on the comment list, didn't like it so they wouldn't print.it.  Benny Hinn is not only a liar but he is a hipocrit that has hurt a lot of people in this world  I am not judging I an just stating the facts that I know.

Like all False Pastors, They take the money and run.  You gave it to them but return when you are in dire need and, they tell you they can not help you.  Remember what Bishop Eddie Long was doing?  Having a great time with the boiys with your money.  Even his wife did not know what was going on.  What a shame!

Dear Benny, I was sorry to hear of your impending divorce with you wife.  Divorce is like a broken branch in the tree of life.  I know.  My prayers are with you all.  May God bless you and keep you in the healing ministry which you do so well.  The press are the persecutors at times and you know what the Bible says about that.  You are loved by so many more.

God knows how to deal with his own,we as his bothers and sisters we should stand by him with prayers,forget about the media and their critics,when a drug dealer get divorced no one writes,but the men of God bad things are said about him,the bible is very clear and Gods words dont return to him void,'TOUCH NOT MY ANNOITED AND DO MY PROPHETS NO HARM',those are Gods word,be careful,remember what happenned to Aron and Mirium when they critised moses?be very careful when u speak,WENDY MUIGAI.

Divorce is not a bad thing, if  God approves of it! God must have approved of Suzanne divorcing her Evangelist husband.  I am sure, like Benny, Suzanne also has a calling on her own life, too.

i feel there are many people who still think making fun of a man of GOD will make them sound funny!!!  One of the problem with some humans is that they never take out time to think before they talk!... Even the bible says JUDGE NOT,THAT YOU MIGHT NOT BE JUDGE!!!  We Christians should understand that this is not an era for gossiping but PRAYING!!!  Benny Hinn has been a great blessing to my life and to those of us in AFRICA. one thing i like about Africans is that we don't run cheat with our mouth!!! Pastor we love you and will always pray for you and your family... GOD BLESS YOU PASTOR BENNY HINN AND WILL SEE YOU THROUGH THIS CRISIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

People look around you and see many Pastors and Evangelist are falling from grace. We've loved our Pastors in the past but one was found to be having and affair and embezzeling and the other Pastor embezzeled from our church. These are cases of good Pastors gone bad. One no longer preaches because he was stripped of his license, the other still preaches and god only knows what he's doing in his congregation. Satan is here and if he can bring down good men and make them stoop to doing the things God says is wrong than what more to you and I. Right now I'm caucious because I've been burnt twice so I place my Faith and Trust fully in Christ Jesus and not in man. Read God's word as not to be led into temptation. We need to be fasting in prayer for all our Christian leaders because truth be known they are not winning souls for christ. People don't want any part of Christ knowing these leaders don't practice what they preach.

People who criticize these Christian people, need to take a good look at themselves first and correct their lives. Being a Christian doesnt detract from the fact that we were born human and when Adam and Eve, our original forefathers committed original sin, we were all destined to be born with original sin in us. We were not made to be perfect robots, God gave us a free will to chose between right and wrong and we all fall short and it also says in the bible, we were all created EQUAL. It doesnt say pastors and Christian leaders were made any better. That doesnt mean its ok, but if we ask for forgiveness all our sin is wiped clean by the blood of Christ, who was the son of God encarnate, born to bear all of our sins beforehand. Just ask for forgiveness and His blood will wipe your slate clean. How many of us would be willing to die for people that criticized and hated us, like Christ did. He died for u, the unbelievers, the sinners and the believers, in order to save us. Benny Hinn and all of us will face our creator one day and there will be no one else standing beside us, to help or hurt us when we are being judged for how we lived our lives. What we all need to do, is be there for each other and love one another..... God bless the world, we are in turmoil because of all the sin and turning away from Him.......

This is a sad story about a man and his family .... The prosperity gospel Hinn sometimespreaches is a perversion of what the Bible says though. But Hinn has brought people intothe Kingdom of God ... people have found Christ through his ministry nevertheless... andthat is a good thing.

Be careful with your tongue. Least you be charged for judeging. Do pray much for one another. It is not God's will that one soul be lost. What is you will for man?????Destruction or Salvation. You see it's not yours to give. We must be careful to such our own soul. 12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

 No one has the right to judge another man.  It is up to the people to keep their healings, not Benny Hinn.  He is  a man of God.

 Everyone makes mistakes, but God is a forgiving God and people should not judge.  There is only 1 judge, and that is God.  Gossip is a sin.  No matter what people know, it should be kept to themselves.

Pastor Benny lives his earthly life on Kingdom priciples. The Word of God says to seek His kingdom first and all these things will be added unto you.He is doing exactly what God has called him to do which is His Kingdom first ,preaching and teaching God's Word to save the lost and God is meeting his needs.He's been blessed super abundantly by His Lord and the world does not like it..Well, let them deal with it.

The American church is mostly not the church that the Lord is coming to take unto Himself. It is mostly apostate though God still has His remnant and witnesses as He must have in all Nations before he returns for His undefilled bride.

We have gone a whoring after the world. Our language might be different but our methods and results are not different from that of the world. It is such a shame the way we have become so entagled with the world and mammon.

May the Lord grant eye salves to HIS elect and remnant to discern between that which is of God and that which is of the devil at this time for the enemy's deception is indeed on the increase.

Lord let there be light. Amen,

It is so sad to see "men of God" get caught up in this world's temptation. In the days before Jesus Christ, men who proclaimed they were Elders and Priests, had to purge themselves and clean up their ways before approaching the Alter of God; if they approached, without being cleaned, they drop dead at the alter. The priests in those days wore bells on their garments, and a chain around their waists, that in the event they dropped dead, they were pulled by the chains from the alter because nobody was worthy enough to enter the alter and take them out. The test was, if the bells on their garments stopped ringing, then the audiences knew they were dead! Jesus Christ came with the new dispensation, and saved us from "sudden death"; He pleads before the Father daily to save us from satan's accusations......just think about how much work Jesus still has to do for us, even after he has conquered death, hell and the grave! Let us "study the Word to show ourselves approved". Remember Jesus threw the money changers out of His Father's Temple, can we even imagine how He feels to see His Father's Words being sold for money! I believe all of the "preachers" have good intentions until they become rich, then they have taken the devil's bait and he, not God, brings them to "shame and disgrace", he exposes them because he owns them. I can not judge anyone, I am not a judge, but for the grace of God there go I, but if I know that I am preaching the Word of God, I will, with the request that my Heavenly Father guides me, pray at the sight of temptation. I am not a preacher, and I pray every day and thank God for His blessings, and ask Him to "Lead me in His righteousness and make His way clear before my face." There is no worthy excuse for these preachers' names to be "clad in mud", I believe that they just don't believe in God........they money becomes their gods!

Yes, I know those who found Christ through his ministry.  I know he is imperfect but he has a terrific ministry to bring people to the Lord, in my personal experience.  My husband and I went to many of his crusades and sang in the choir six times.  Have not paid attention to him lately, but ask God to bless him and family.

You are an idiot, deceived by your father the devil and you don't even realize it.  Repent now or face the severe consequences of the words you have uttered. Be very careful about what you say regarding the work of the Holy Spirit, blasphemy against Him is a sin that not even the precious Blood of Jesus can wash away.
