Benny Hinn: "God will destroy gay community by 1995"

bennyhinn1.jpgWe learned of the following from Spiritual Pathways Ministry:

The Lord also tells me to tell you in the mid 90’s, about ‘94-’95, no later than that, God will destroy the homosexual community of America. [audience applauds] But He will not destroy it – with what many minds have thought Him to be, He will destroy it with fire. And many will turn and be saved, and many will rebel and be destroyed.”

Benny Hinn “prophesied” that in early 1990. Its 2007 now. You do the math. While you’re doing the math, also do the scripture. According to Jeremiah 14:14 this is clearly a false prophesy. As wrong as the gcm is, God is not willing that any perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 2:9). Paul echoed that sentiment in Romans 2:4. Does Benny Hinn despise the richness of God’s mercy towards those who sin? Doesn’t he know that the goodness of God leads to repentance? Apparently not. So how could God tell him to say this when the Bible says just the opposite? Since the homosexual community lives in every part of the US, God would have to burn the whole country up including the DFW metroplex where Hinn resides. And since the date has come and gone with the homosexual community still here, does that make God or Benny Hinn a liar?

  1. Not like it’s anything new for him, but…

    With his words, Benny Hinn tried to add words to the prophecy of scripture. A direct violation of Revelation 22:18. God will grant Benny the plagues in this life, or the next in the form of a one way dip into the Lake of Fire with his Father Satan. I guess it would be to Benny’s benefit if he received plaques in this life, that he might repent, rather than to receive the ULTIMATE PLAGUE in being sent to eternal damnation.

    Benny has also claimed that those who speak against his “ministry” would be “cursed”, but we all are here.

    Benny goes on and on. Fleecing saints and bearing false witness on the Holy Spirit with his mind games.

    We know hell is hot for a reason and we know the Lake of Fire was created for some. Without repentance, Benny Hinn will be one!

    Like I keep saying, because of Benny and those like him, the name of the Lord is blasphemed among the unbelievers.

    You mentioned 2 Peter 2:9, but the whole of 2 Peter 2 has Benny’s name all over it!

    Benny has also lied and claimed God is “9”, which should come as no surprise, because Benny follows a false god.

  2. Regardless of what the content of the ‘prophecy’ is, we should know that it is false before looking for its fulfillment. Prophecy has a beginning and an end. It also has an EXACT time or date! If God gave a prophecy but left things open-ended, then that would allow for many interpretations, even fulfillments and if that’s so, then how is God glorified? He’s not and so we know that God will not give words to someone without it CLEARLY pointing to Him as the Author!!!

    “Benny has also lied and claimed God is “9″, which should come as no surprise, because Benny follows a false god.”

    I am aware that one theologian (I believe it was Jack Hayford) met with Benny Hinn to correct his aberrant theology concerning the Godhead.

    The apostle Paul did admonish believers in 1 Corinthians 14 to weigh prophecy against the Scripture. If it was wrong, correct them and move on IN the SPIRIT of gentleness, not arrogance.

    Some early believers in the first few centuries thought the end of the world would come at some time in the near future. When they were wrong, they revised, corrected and moved on. God’s grace extends to those false prophets. I believe many Christians have spoken something that would be false in God’s eyes. We repent, we are corrected, then we move on. Let pray for Benny Hinn and lets pray for all believers to rightly divide the word of truth.

  4. Jason, what about the possibility that the false prophet is NOT a brother in the Lord who has simply erred, but a minister of satan cloaked in false righteousness? Do we pray for them or give em a beat down? LOL

    And I will go out on limb and ask which one is Benny Hinn?

  5. “Jason, what about the possibility that the false prophet is NOT a brother in the Lord who has simply erred, but a minister of satan cloaked in false righteousness? Do we pray for them or give em a beat down? LOL”

    That is a possibility. But how can Satan cast out Satan? Did Benny Hinn ever deny that Christ is LORD and risen from the dead? Does he believe that Christ was crucified for our sins? Basically, would he affirmed the Apostle and Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creeds? One would have to ask him?

    I don’t watch Benny Hinn’s ministry per se. I generally try to avoid many televangelists because of the theatrics turn me off let alone their pop theology.

    The Ancient Church excommunicated heretics, but didn’t kill them until the Rome made heresy a civil crime. These were ecumenical councils of bishops that met and convened as one catholic church. If the heretic repented, the heretic would be received into the Church as if we was never saved. Interestingly enough Tertullian, the one who coined the term Trinity was considered a heretic in the third century when he joined the Montanists. Were they saved? Were the modalists saved? Were the Monophysites saved? Were the Christians before the formulation of the doctrine of the Trinity saved, since we make the doctrine a test for historical orthodoxy? Anyone can say the believe the Scripture. What does that mean? St. Anselm said that theology is ‘faith seeking understanding”. Theology is really the queen of sciences. We may confess the event as C.S. Lewissays in Mere Christianity, but our theories should explain the event, but our faith is not built in theories but the event itself. Truly some theories are way better than others. Theology can lead is into the worship of the true God or into the worship of false gods.

    We in today’s society shun the word “ecumenical” and use it through some premillenial dispensationalist fundamentalist lens and put a negative connotation to it to mean apostate super inclusivist church. How sad. Anyway, those of us from the free church traditions can just teach what Scriptures affirms and rejects as we understand it.

    If you believe Hinn’s a heretic by the biblical definition, please don’t invite him to preach to your church nor endorse his ministry. Teach what makes Hinn’s theology different than orthodox central doctrines of the Christian faith as understood throughout the ages. If you decide, declare him anathema, pray for his true salvation and his followers, and continue to labor in the gospel and instruct your people in sound doctrine.

    I personally don’t know if I can say that all heretics are saved or not because I am not familiar with all the classical heresies within Church history. I can say with boldness that Pearson, Spong, Flunder, and many others preach another Jesus from the Jesus the apostles preached because I have studied intensely the GCM doctrine(s).

    I know the Lord knows who are His. The term heresy has been used so flippantly throughout the ages, I have to do more Scriptural study on the term. I am ambivalent to trust certain so-called Christian apologists in the way they use it (usually adding their carnality to many of their work). Lest I become a heretic in my ways, I have to be studied up in what Scripture, the Great Tradition of the Church has to say concerning the heresies. The ancient bishop-theologians had a way with words which we evangelicals need to learn.

    Also there seems to be an underlying personal agenda in a lot of their work especially online apologist. Not yours, Pastor Foster, but many.

    Don’t get me wrong, heresy is a serious issue for the church as it has been it’s inception! Who is Benny Hinn’s Jesus? Or which Jesus does Benny Hinn confess? The mark of heresy as I understand Paul to teach is that which creates factions (etc. Philetus and Hymenaus 2 Timothy 2: 17) in the Body resulting in the falling away of many from the faith which was once delivered to saints.

    Does Hinn’s teaching lead people away from the Lord who delivered them? Does Pat Robertson’s false prophesies led people from the Lord? What about Jerry Falwell saying God judged America through 9-11 and laid the charge and the feminist and gay movements’ feet? Does word lead people away from Christ? Many others charges of blaming others for the world crises and instead of looking at the fallen creation at large? What makes their claim erroneous but not heretical? I don’t mean to be rhetorical, I am really serious.

    Nevertheless, I cannot answer your out-on-a limb question concerning Hinn with the boldness and conviction I did with Rev. Goss’s words on your previous post. I would have to listen and read and study Hinn’s material to determine this man is a heretic. As for Goss, his words show me who his lord is.

    Heretical Christians may have known Him (relationship) but erred in how to interpret and explain Him (theology). I guess when we misinterpret Him and believe our interpretations instead of Him, we lose sight of Him. Is that what heresy is truly about, leaning to our own understanding and not being informed by the Spirit in the Word and in the Community of Faith?

    I guess I really need to get acquainted with the central dogmas of the Christian faith. I’ll catch you later. I’m tired and it’s 12:30AM EST and I’m writing what’s going through my head; rambling off thoughts.

    Blessings

  6. Jason,

    Benny Hinn should be measured by Biblical standards. He made “so-called” prophecies. They didn’t come to pass. Therefore he is false. Your lengthy diatribe to try to defend this man and his ilk is sorely lacking. He is nothing more than a TBN lackey.

    Kyle

  7. Jason Oliver Evans, Benny Hinn follows another jesus, period. This is the warning of 2 Corinthians 11:4.

    Benny Hinn follows a false christ that requires people give him money on command to receive a “blessing”. Benny Hinn follows a false christ that requires people give him money for their children’s good health.

    What does 1 Timothy 3 say? No lovers of money in church leadership. What does 1 Corinthians 5:9-13 say? Kick extortionists and swindlers OUT of the church body until they repent.

    You should not defend Benny Hinn, given you could provide cover for the snake and suffer with him.

    See 2 John 1. Believing in “Christ” is not simply saying you beleive somebody named Jesus died and was resurrected. Many a cult including that of Benny Hinn can repeat that all day. But look at what they say their christ commands and you find they follow another jesus.

    We “walk after his commandments” and Benny Hinn walks after self promotion and profit.

    You have been provided evidence of Benny Hinn’s HERESY in the links I offered in my first comment.

    You’d do well not to defend him in any way, but only desire to separate yourself from any association with him till he honestly comes to know Christ.

    Many who claim the Lord’s name will NOT enter the Kingdom and you would do well not to follow or defend them.

  8. I think the thing to consider here in regards to FALSE prophecy is that Benny Hinn made a statement that he claimed
    (1) God told him
    (2) contained a specific time frame

    Since #2 has proven to be false by virtue of the passing of the time he specified, then we can safely deduce that #1 is also equally false.

    According to the scripture, this invalidates that individuals prophetic credentials.

    Additionally, as someone pointed out Hinn has told multiple other false statements and attributed them to God.

  9. Kyle:

    “Benny Hinn should be measured by Biblical standards. He made “so-called” prophecies. They didn’t come to pass. Therefore he is false. Your lengthy diatribe to try to defend this man and his ilk is sorely lacking. He is nothing more than a TBN lackey.”

    and Independent Conservative said:

    “You should not defend Benny Hinn, given you could provide cover for the snake and suffer with him.”

    These are strong yet erroneous accusations!! I do not claim nor was it my intention in the previous post to defend Benny Hinn nor his teachings. If my words construe this in the previous post, then I apologize. As others have pointed out his many false prophecies by scriptural standards , then Hinn is a false prophet. Great, your points are proved.

    My lengthy “diatribe” as Kyle referred to it was out my tiredness so I was writing down my thoughts. Again I apologize; I was ignorant of Hinn’s other apparently false teachings. Of the clips I have watched of Hinn (rarely, I don’t like watching him) he seemed orthodox, but I turned him off.

    In regards my ramblings to the larger issue of heresy and the church, I wrote these words out of true ignorance. People say go to the Word. I ask again, how does one properly interpreted the Word. The heretics of old and now make their claims are base on the Word. I referred to the ancient ecumenical creeds and the patristic theologians because they have been vital keys for understanding the purpose of Scripture. The ancient Church came as a corporate interpreter of the Text. Scripture supercedes Tradition in authority of course, but Scripture is interpreted in the Community of Faith. One like Benny Hinn can argue against homosexual sin because He believes the Word. Others can rightfully call Hinn a heretic because of the Word.

    My point of the previous post is this, does the contemporary Church know the difference between Luther’s “priesthood of all believers” and today’s warped version of “the priesthood of individual believers?”

    We can shout out sola scriptura until Christ returns, but we must not confuse this valid Reformation principle with what theologian wrote me as naked scriptura, interpreting the Scripture apart from the teaching of the Church.

    So what I’m calling on or asking for guidance is how is Scripture properly interpreted in order to refute heresy and who gets to interpret the Scripture?

    Blessings,

    Jason

  10. “We can shout out sola scriptura until Christ returns, but we must not confuse this valid Reformation principle with what theologian wrote me as naked scriptura, interpreting the Scripture apart from the teaching of the Church.”

    I mean we cannot interpret the Scripture from without the Church.

  11. The word of God tells us not to take or give to the word – You will know a tree by the fruit it bears – no one has the write to use God to glorify them selves and this is what he does. When we put ourselves higher Christ we are walking on dangerous ground.

  12. Jason I dont think the word “diatribe” used by Kyle was appropriate. He’s wrong for that.

    I think you are trying to ask what is the larger criteria for heresy as opposed to someone lying occasionally in the name of the Lord?

    Right or wrong?

  13. “I think you are trying to ask what is the larger criteria for heresy as opposed to someone lying occasionally in the name of the Lord?”

    Yes, Sir, that’s actually what I’m trying to ask. The Gospel is the Gospel of reconciliation. If Hinn is truly false, warning him of his grave error is supposed to provoke his repentance and restoration of Hinn and many others who have gone astray, not damn them to hell as some seem to wish upon their souls. Christians have provisional judgment, yes, but ultimate judgment belongs to Christ and Christ alone. So in zeal Christians must have knowledge rebuke is bold, direct, sincere, and loving not damning.

    Blessings!

  14. I havent done my own personal study as to whether Benny Hinn is a heretic, but according to Apologetics Index, heresies have more to do with attacks on the major doctrines of the bible. To wit:

    Heresies about revelation — teachings that distort, deny, or add to Scripture in a way that leads people to destruction; false claims to apostolic or prophetic authority.
    Heresies about God — teachings that promote false gods or idolatrous distortions of the true God.
    Heresies about Christ — denials of His unique Lordship, His genuine humanity, His true identity.
    Heresies about salvation — teaching legalism or licentiousness; denying the gospel of Christ’s death and resurrection; and so forth.
    Heresies about the church — deliberate attempts to lead people away from the fellowship of true Christians; utter rejection of the church.
    Heresies about the future — false predictions for which divine authority is claimed; claims that Christ’s return has taken place; and the like.

    #6 seems to apply to him.
    Perhaps Benny might be more aptly termed a false prophet, particularly in relation to this post. It wasnt just a general statement or opinion. He said GOD TOLD HIM.

  15. Benny Hinn is also a heretic given point #1. The prosperity doctrine distorts contentment for gain and makes it seem the love of money is a good thing, while claiming they don’t love money. The entire foundation of their giving is to give a contrived 10% in hopes of financial gain, while claiming it’s not about their hopes to be rich. This is not the truth of the Lord and denies what is revealed in scripture to the church.

    Benny Hinn and others try to treat the gifts of God as if they can be purchased, the apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ noted this as heresy in Acts 8:20. Benny Hinn has the old sorcerer spirit of Simon and Benny even continues the sorcery with his tricks of mesmerism. (Mind tricks he uses and claims someone is being SLAIN IN THE SPIRIT.) At least Simon repented! How many times have I chronicled with video, Benny Hinn and others on TBN claiming that the “anointing” was there and you had to pay to get a piece? This is a lie, utter heresy and claims people can buy anointing, which is the Holy Spirit.

    They lie about Luke 6:38 and claim it’s about money, read Luke 6 in full, it’s about giving and receiving grace and mercy. They twist the words of our Lord for gain. They are 2 Peter 2 and some don’t even know it. Deceitful people on your TV working for Satan while claiming to be angels of light, 2 Corinthians 11:13-15. It is THE SAME FALSE spirit Paul had to cut short by working for free.

    This nation is SO FULL of the lie, that many can’t see it clearly.

    I will not continue further because those who receive this will accept it and those who reject it have heard the truth and are without excuse.

  16. He also practices necromancy – he derives his anointings from the dead bones of Katherine Kulman. (sp?)

    Necromancy: The practice of supposedly communicating with the spirits of the dead in order to predict the future.
    Carol if you cant document that, then I’ll remove it tomorrow. thanks, GCMW

  17. I said I would not continue further, but there is strong support for the claim that Benny Hinn is into necromancy.

    ROMANCING THE NECROMANCER

    Pt.2 Benny Hinn’s Romance with Necromancy


    Hinn relates another vision he had “I saw myself walk into a room and there stood Kathryn Kuhlman. And I’ve not seen Kathryn in a dream or a vision [in] years. I knew she had died and it was on the news that same morning. … And there she was standing in this room… And she said, ‘Follow me.’ … And I followed her to a second room. In that second room stood the lord. When the lord, uh-when-when I saw the lord, Kathryn disappeared. She was just gone … And now the lord looked at me and said, ‘Follow me.’ And I followed him to a third room.”

    He said, “One of the strangest experiences I had a few years ago [was] visiting Aimee’s tomb in California… Friday I am gonna go and visit Kathryn Kuhlman’s tomb. It’s close by Aimee’s … I’ve been there once already and every so often 1 like to go and pay my respects ’cause this great woman of God has touched my life. And that grave, uh, where she’s buried is closed, they built walls around it. You can’t get in without a key and I’m one of the very few people who can get in. But I’ll never forget when 1 saw Aimee’s tomb. It’s incredibly dramatic. She was such a lady that her tomb has seven-foot angels bowing on each side of her tomb … I felt a terrific anointing when 1 was there. 1 actually, hear this,’ I trembled when I visited Aimee’s tomb. I was shaking all over. God’s power came all over me. … I believe the anointing has lingered over Aimee’s body.

    Someone asked me how is it you can feel the anointing around a tomb? I have no idea man, but I sure felt it. Your gonna feel the anointing…I’ve heard of people healed when they visited their tomb… ( Double Portion Anointing, Part #3, Orlando Christian Center, April 7, 1991. From the series, Holy Ghost Invasion. TV# 309,)

    Hopefully that is sufficient evidence. You know anyone who exposes Benny Hinn with video footage, Benny has it removed by his lawyers. So we have no choice but to write out what he does, he’ll make sure you don’t see actual footage.

    You know for some of my posts exposing Islam I had to do a good bit of research into that cult. Benny Hinn’s claim of that evil little witch Kuhlman taking him into various rooms is similar to Muhammad’s bogus night journey story. Where Muhammad claimed to go into various levels of Heaven, even higher than Christ. Benny Hinn is of Arab descent. He probably knows the night journey story from having lived around Muslims. Benny has adjusted it for his audience.

    OK, so now maybe I can say it without all the excuses being made for him, BENNY HINN WORKS FOR SATAN!!!

    GCMW: Thanks IC for this information. BTW, I didnt see anybody making excuses for Hinn. There was a consensus that he is not in the God camp. I do think there was a question as to the appropriate terminology to attach to that. Personally, I have never had any confidence that Hinn’s ministry was authentic. The “gay destruction” remarks were more evidence of his entrenched fallacy.

  18. God doesn’t lie.

    The South Californian fire is a testimony.

    Never say never.

    Homosexuality is never a lifestyle. It is SIN. It is sexual. It is fornification. It is decadence.

  19. You’ll never know! If Benny would be with the Lord and he be taken up to Heaven in the twinkling of an eye. We really should stop keeping records of other people’s sins since God doesn’t to ours. What if this year 2008 He decided to repent. I’m sure He did over the years so let’s just drop it!!!

  20. We should not spend our time arguing but praying fo Benny. His ministry is a lot of work…………..

    GCMW: Yeah, its a lot of work to stay in a $10,000 a night hotel room and live in a $10 million mansion on oceanfront property disguised as a “parsonage”. Benny Hinn really needs my prayers.

  21. ooops My mistake!!!
    I MEAN THAT WE SHOULD BE PRAYING FOR BENNY THAT BENNY THAT HE WILL CONTINUE TO FULFILL GOD’S PURPOSE!!!!!!!

  22. Having read all above comments, I’d like to make some myself:
    1. Elisha’s bones revived a dead soldier (2 Kings 13:21)
    2. Jonah said God would destroy Nineveh – and it never happened.

    I do not support or agree with everything Benny Hinn says – but he is just a sinful man as we all are and prone to fail. Before you judge, put your hand into your own bosom.

    When I have judeged him and other “faith movement” people for what I consider extremes, I have experienced a coldness in my spirit – as if the Lord was displeased with me.

    Lord bless

  23. What?

    Jonah’s prophecy regarding Ninevah was contingent upon their failure to repent. Thery did so their destruction was averted.
    Your testimony regarding a coldness in your spirit is entirely subjective False doctrine must be corrected, confronted and exposed according to the scriptures.

  24. Elder Jimmy Im going to add another WHAT??? to that:
    Nineveh was destroyed. Their repentance only delayed it, but it was destroyed never to rise again.

    “In 612 BC, after a prolonged civil war, Assyria’s two former vassals, the Babylonians and the Medes, conquered and destroyed Nineveh, the capital of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. The great city went up in flames, never to regain its former status. Three years later the same rebels razed Assyria’s Western metropolis, Harran, crushing the last-ditch resistance of Assyria’s last king,Ashur-uballit II. This event sealed the fate of the Assyrian Empire, and that is where the story of Assyria usually ends in history books. ”

    Im not sure what this has got to do with Benny Hinn’s false prophecy. Jonah was not a false prophet. I also dont understand the “coldness in the spirit” remark. I wish people would stop being so cryptic.

  25. Pastor D.L.,

    Hope you don’t mind me “pasting and copying” a portion of my reply to you at my blog. But after reading Peter Crause’s “coldness of spirit” comment and what you mentioned about Nineveh ultimately being destroyed (despite their repentance…which only delayed it); I thought that the following excerpt might shed some light upon the situation.

    BTW, Benny Hinn doesn’t appear to share the need for repentance in his “slain in the spirit” gospel. I could be wrong about that. However, if he does discuss repentance, perhaps it’s the “Judas type” that is described below?

    Excerpt of TalkWisdom comment:

    I was looking at definitions of the word “repentance.” I found this, and it was an “ah HA!” moment for me:

    Easton’s 1897 Bible Dictionary – Cite This Source – Share This
    Repentance

    There are three Greek words used in the New Testament to denote repentance. (1.) The verb _metamelomai_ is used of a change of mind, such as to produce regret or even remorse on account of sin, but not necessarily a change of heart. This word is used with reference to the repentance of Judas (Matt. 27:3).

    (2.) Metanoeo, meaning to change one’s mind and purpose, as the result of after knowledge. This verb, with (3) the cognate noun _metanoia_, is used of true repentance, a change of mind and purpose and life, to which remission of sin is promised. Evangelical repentance consists of (1) a true sense of one’s own guilt and sinfulness; (2) an apprehension of God’s mercy in Christ; (3) an actual hatred of sin (Ps. 119:128; Job 42:5, 6; 2 Cor. 7:10) and turning from it to God; and (4) a persistent endeavour after a holy life in a walking with God in the way of his commandments. The true penitent is conscious of guilt (Ps. 51:4, 9), of pollution (51:5, 7, 10), and of helplessness (51:11; 109:21, 22). Thus he apprehends himself to be just what God has always seen him to be and declares him to be. But repentance comprehends not only such a sense of sin, but also an apprehension of mercy, without which there can be no true repentance (Ps. 51:1; 130:4).

    Easton’s 1897 Bible Dictionary

    I could not help but notice the difference between the “Judas” type of repentance described in that definition vs. genuine repentance.

    This is something that I have been attempting to communicate to all who would pridefully label themselves as “gay christians.” [Added note: this could also apply to Hinn and his heretical ministry!]

    Even the fact that the term “gay” comes before the term “Christian” is an alarmingly dead giveaway as to the lack of depth in their repentance! They do not have the kind of repentance that leads “to which remission of sin is promised.”

    They may THINK they do, but they don’t!!!

    We see the definite, distinct difference in the definition of evangelical repentance:

    Evangelical repentance consists of (1) a true sense of one’s own guilt and sinfulness; (2) an apprehension of God’s mercy in Christ; (3) an actual hatred of sin (Ps. 119:128; Job 42:5, 6; 2 Cor. 7:10) and turning from it to God; and (4) a persistent endeavour after a holy life in a walking with God in the way of his commandments. The true penitent is conscious of guilt (Ps. 51:4, 9), of pollution (51:5, 7, 10), and of helplessness (51:11; 109:21, 22).

    The gay christian adherents may THINK they have #2 on that list (e.g. – (2) an apprehension of God’s mercy in Christ); but in reality, they don’t because they have willfully ignored all the rest of the criteria for true repentance!

    I am planning on doing a more detailed post about genuine repentance and what that means. But even this brief synopsis proves that the efforts of your gcmWatch blog is so highly crucial in this day and age!! Rather than subject your Holy Spirit led and valiant efforts to scorn, these naysayers who post at gcmWatch should be so very grateful to you and your Truth Warrior blog Pastor D.L.!!!

  26. Having watched “Benny” over the years (I am an Orlando area resident) I have come to the conclusion that he has strayed from his original dizzy pentacostal status to a full-blown wacko heretic.

    What to do about it? Someone get lawyers to stop the removal of Benny’s tomfoolery!
