Jesus Wants You To Read This… And Prosper!

July 30, 2010

Apparently, Benny Hinn is a little tight on funds and needs your help.

In a message on his website, Hinn said his ministry accumulated the $2 million deficit in the last few months because of the poor economy, which translated to fewer offerings in some of his crusades in different parts of the world.

There’s two points I want to make here.

First, this debt is being accumulated by a ministry that promises supernatural debt cancellation.

As you send your seed-gift today, claim your debt cancellation by asking for our Debt Cancellation stickers, designed exclusively for Benny Hinn Ministries partners and friends. Featuring powerful statements and verses, these stickers proclaim mighty promises for canceling your debt. Peel and place them on your correspondence, as well as on your mortgage, loan, and credit card bills as you seek God’s financial breakthrough!

Am I the only one who finds it slightly ironic that a pastor who claims to have the magic ability to make your visa bill suddenly turn up zeros is himself in debt? Apparently the magic of debt cancellation does not work so well in a recession.

Second, Benny Hinn does not believe for one second what he is selling. If Benny did believe his own magic formula that he tries to shill to the sheeple he would take a large sum of his remaining funds and “seed” them into God’s kingdom. He would do this publicly and intentionally. But as we know, and the reason he is being investigated by the government, the only thing Benny knows how to seed in is his mansion, jet, and cars.

Hinn’s con should be identified for what it is: a ponzi scheme. He knows the only person that will “prosper” in this scheme is him. That’s why he’s asking people to send him money so he can afford to go on TV and keep asking people to send him money, and not applying his financial alchemy that the uniformed to readily accept. Benny has no magic. He has no access to magic. If you need more money go to an accountant.

True story: I received a call yesterday from my Uncle who relayed a conversation with a businessman in his church. This gentlemean’s business is going $20, 000 in debt a month. During their conversation he exasperatedly stated, “I watch Kenneth Copeland and Joyce Meyers ever morning, and I do exactly what they say, and yet I’m still going broke. I don’t understand it.” I understand it perfectly: Kenneth, Joyce, and Benny do not have magic powers. They do not understand metaphysical spiritual principals on any level, and certainly not on any biblical level. They are rich because they are phenomenally good con men and women that know how to trick people and play off of their greed.

So Mr. going broke businessman, might I make a suggestion?

STOP SENDING THEM MONEY!!!!!!!!!

The only person in this scam who will get rich is them. You’ll just get poor.

    The complete and utter illogic of the behaviors of those like Hinn and Tilton, etc., who promise prosperity for those who give money to their ministries never occurs to their followers. According to what they preach, if these prosperity Televangelists want to be awash in gazillions of dollars and have debt-free ministries, they should send all their money to their supporters and contributors and viewers. For every $1 Hinn sends back to his viewers, he will get $100 or $1,000 in return. Or at least that’s what he and his ilk preach.

      Tilton as in Robert Tilton, the Benny Hinn of 20-odd years ago mentioned by Steve Taylor?

    I wonder if Hinn’s upcoming divorce (and how much his ex & lawyers will take him to the cleaners) has anything to do with this sudden Cash Flow Problem?

    Oh, and let Mr Going Broke Businessman know there’s HAWT HAWT HAWT Dot-Com IPOs in Sunnyvale and Investment Real Estate Condos in Vegas ready for the Flipping…

    But for now, LET THE BODIES HIT THE FLOOR!

    I have a supernatural word (most likely from prophetic gifting mantle) of how any person – even in this recession – can be debt free and amass wealth:

    SPEND LESS THAN YOU EARN.

    It’s pretty radical, but so are my powers.
