Full statement from Benny Hinn, popular wealth-and-health Word of Faith preacher, on September 3, 2019, speaking to his followers during a Facebook Live broadcast:
So it’s all about our brokenness, our old man, we call that the flesh must be broken, must be out of the way. And today, sadly, among a lot of circles, all you hear is how to build the flesh. It’s a feel good message. That’s what you get out there. It’s all about feel good, do good. All that. Make money, all the rest of it.
And I’m sorry to say that prosperity has gone a little crazy.
And I am correcting my own uh, theology, and you need to all know it. Because when I read the Bible, now, I don’t see the Bible in the same eyes as I saw the Bible 20 years ago.
And Steve Strang from Charisma (Magazine, founder and CEO), who, we go back years, he actually he was at my wedding, people don’t even know that Charisma Magazine began with my father-in-law. Charisma Magazine started with Roy Harlan, And I married his daughter. Steve Strang was in in my wedding, We go way back. And he’s already asked me, “So are you ready to make it public?” I said, “well not totally. Because I don’t want to hurt my friends. Or my love, who believes things I don’t believe anymore.”
And I will tell you now something that is going to shock you. I think it’s 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.
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.
Are you? Did you hear me? I think that hurts the Gospel.
So I’m making this statement for the first time in my life. And frankly, I don’t care what people think about me no more. So I had a guy. Well, I’ll tell you who it was, Dan Willis. I love Dan with all my heart. I said, “Don’t you dare preach that message again.”
Don’t wanna hear it. I don’t want to be a part of it.
So I when they invite me to telethons, I think they will not like me anymore.
Because If you look at the Word of God,
I don’t want to get into it now.
Am I shocking you? Good! Let’s have a high five on this one.
If I hear one more time, “break the back of debt with $1,000,” I’m going to rebuke them. I think that’s buying the gospel… that’s buying the blessing. That’s grieving the Holy Spirit.
That’s about all I will say.
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. And I’ve been sick for a while too; I just couldn’t say it.
And now the lid is off. I’ve had it.
You know why? I don’t want to get to heaven and be rebuked.
No, I think it’s time we say it like it is The gospel is not for sale. The blessings of God, not for sale. And miracles are not for sale. And prosperity is not for sale.
I’m waiting for the catch, this man has been a charlatan Fr so long it’s hard to believe him now
Right! Is is so easy to say this after you have made millions off of people who could not afford to give.
Did you notice the conspicuous absence of any plan to at least try to return the money? This is just another snake shedding it’s skin.
This is not a clear open confession and rejection of the prosperity Gospel. It is too measured and leaves too many escape hatches open. If someone as steeped in this false teaching as Benny is truly repentant he needs to clearly, in detail confess it and not be concerned about the collateral damage ( basically come clean ) without a fear of how it will affect those still sold out to this false and destructive teaching. The prosperity teaching has severely damaged members of my family. These Charlatans with their false message and inerrant theology have actually destroyed families, marriages, churches and they are a stain on the Church. I really do hope and pray that Benny and many all of those who have profited from this aberrant theology will truly repent. In their repentance they need to abandon any concern in regard to upsetting their colleagues that continue to adhere to the errant beliefs of the prosperity teaching. We will all be judged on how we respond, share and live in the light of The True Gospel remember Jesus words “many will Matt. 7:22 “Many will say to me on that day, Lord Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?” Jesus response will be ” Depart from me I never knew you”. Benny has spent years fleecing the sheep. People like my mom sending money from the small retirement she has so people like Benny and his ilk can were expensive clothes, own multiple properties, fly around in private jets, stay in luxury hotels, all while calling their teaching the gospel. We can all fall into error and when we do our response should we true repentance. For examples see Jesus’s instruction to The Seven Churches in Revelation and Zacchaeus words to Jesus in Luke 19:8
Exactly, will he now preach the real Gospel? Will he turn from the heresies he has proclaimed?
Watching and praying for a complete and full turn around the RIGHT WAY.
Pray, listen, watch. Trust God, not man.
Took him very long to realise he was numbered amongst the false teachers and charlatans. I pray that this is his conviction and not another publicity stunt. Or could he be using reverse psychology on us. All we can do is pray that these men repent and find peace with God almighty.
I pray that Benny Hinn truly repents of these false teachings. I hope the FEAR of the Lord is back in his life and that he preaches the Gospel according to Acts 2:38. In Jesus Name.
It was all a hoax, a day later Benny was talking about “Sewing Seeds” to prosperity, his time tested way of saying “Send me money and God will reward you”
Didn’t “prosperity” preacher, Joyce Meyer, make a public message similar to this? Oh and I believe she retracted her statement too.
The question is, will he pay back the money he stole by deceit?
Well, thank God the eyes of this minister’s heart are opened and being enlightened, that he may grow and increase in the knowledge of God, that his walk before the Lord would continually be pleasing in His sight. I’m sad to see so many of the comments made here are mostly scornful. Remember, we are not to stand in the way of sinners nor sit in the seat of the scornful, but lovingly embrace a child of God who humbles himself to repent.
Guys be wise. You just believe everything you read. Are you a babe? One day you may read some stuff about you that you can’t imagine. Before you defend…. I ask a question, where you there when all these were said. Where you. “Personally” there?
The heart of man can be desperately wicked.
Think about it!
The fact that it sounds good to to does not mean it is true. It also does not mean you are right.
Repenting of a gross theological error would also include going to the Scriptures…showing the texts that had previously been twisted & teaching them correctly. This he never did.
Ask Ole Anthony and Pete Evans of Trinity Foundation, Dallas TX and has this guy been a pathological liar? Note all their work in exposing him and he still has a following!
I’m surprised God hasn’t dropped him like King Herod in Acts. King Saul in Chronicles for prostituting and whoring his name and who he is. That people have to worship a man over God, is so very sad.
Worse, ALL the money ($) this Huckster, Charleton, Con-Man, Con-Artist, Snake Oil Salesman, False Teacher, False Shepherd as the many false leaders. robbed from those to help the truth to serve people, help the Widow, Fatherless, Homeless, Poor, Single Parents and their Children, Orphan. What did Benny Hinn do with all that money but build a self-serving organization? Look at his lifestyle and that would apply to every Leader/Speaker in Christendom who did they truly help as did they pay your Bills, Car, Mortgage?

George Barna writes on “The Frog in the Kettle” and David Wegner’s DVD on exposing false prophet along with Trinity Foundations DVD’s.
Just Google the U-Tubes Benny Hinn cursing and damning people to hell that come against his ministry they were posted on David Wilkerson’s website if haven’t been removed and if removed why? Even after Dateline and all corruption and exposures BH like TBN still has a following. If, you are attending and supporting you are robbing yourself of time which you cannot get back and money. Write out what he is saying, how much will you learn? How much of the Bible going forth like rivers of living water and how much true Prayer, Repentance, Holiness, Humility exemplified rather than preying on people. What is wrong with us to tithe, attend and worship false leaders?
Just Google: Scandal, Negative Feedback, Controversial Articles, Abused by on Benny Hinn. Research if founded and funded by luciferian and or a satanic regime. Judge Fruit. Write out what he has said for years, what is he truly saying. Ask him if he’s ever prayed for anyone to die and or cursed with Cancer! Saw Article or U-Tube the greatest Con-Man of 20th and 21st Century on this guy and he still has a following, WHY?
Read: Losing My Religion by William Lobdell; The Fleecing of Christianity by Jackie Alnor, Don’t Call Me Brother by Austin Miles, Pagan Christianity (green cover) by Frank Viola. Google: Difference between Sociopath and Psychopath.
I believed it is not our place to say anything whether he meant what is saying. About over 20 years ago. I used to support him. But I don’t support him when he begin to change. However, whatever he do or don’t do. Is not my place to say anything. That is where I stand. Because when we say anything about other people. We have already sin against God. Our own self righteous doesn’t give us any right to say anything.
Amen Joy…. The Lord Jesus is his judge NOT us! I never gave to his ministry; however, when ppl give from their hearts they are giving to God and God will bless them REGARDLESS of the minister’s agenda. My humble opinion!
The minister is NOT the Healer ; Jesus is your Healer , your Redeemer and your Provider !!
The Holy Spirit has finally convicted this man of God, Benny was and still is a great preacher. Prosperity preaching has made the lost, the people that need Jesus the most, look past Him. I am just happy that Benny has finally realized this and I hope he is truly repentant and put the Lord first above all else.
Thanks for sharing this video!
Well, mom had a saying, though uneducated she had some wisdom. She would say “the proof is in the pudding”. Did this sinner rid himself of his ill-gotten gain?
You all have just answered my question “How can real Christians endorse Trump”
The proof is in the pudding. the fruit of the Spirit is____?
The furit of Sin and corruption is_________?
Well there you go….
I am touched for sure.
Glory be to God!
