Popular preacher and evangelist Dr Benny Hinn in a Facebook live broadcast with his followers has renounced what he described as an offense to the Lord, the prosperity message and giving like the gospel is for sale, adding that the holy spirit is fed up with it.
Benny Hinn’s ministry has gone the length and breadth of the world with his massive healing crusades and the preaching of the gospel of prosperity, but right now the preacher has announced he is no longing tolling the part, but instead has made a correction of his teachings.
He opined that giving should only be about your love for Jesus and the gospel, adding that he will never ask for $1000 or whatever amount of money again.
The preacher further said he doesn’t give a damn if other preachers refused to invite him to their churches stating categorically that the Gospel “is not for sale.”
“I’m sorry to say that prosperity has gone a little crazy and I’m correcting my own 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 I saw 20 years ago,” Hinn said as his followers rejoiced.
“I think it’s an offense to the Lord, it’s an offense to say give $1,000. I think it’s an 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.
“Did you hear me?” Hinn asked as his audience responded affirmatively in high spirits.
“I think it 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 anymore,”
“When they invite me to telethons I think they will not like me anymore. Because when you look at the word of God … if I hear one more time, break the back of debt with $1,000, I’m gonna rebuke them. I think that’s buying the Gospel. That’s buying the blessing. That’s grieving the Holy Spirit. … If you are not giving because you love Jesus, don’t bother giving,” Hinn argued. “I think giving has become such a gimmick; it’s making me sick to my stomach.” the preacher said.
