Benny Hinn Repents—Again |

TBC Staff

I don't think a day has passed when I haven't had at least one person contact me to excitedly let me know that Benny Hinn has repented of his false teaching. They are surprised when I let them know I am unconvinced at this point. There are several reasons for my doubt beginning with the fact that this is not the first time. But, you don't have to take my word for it, Daniel Silliman points this out in Benny Hinn Renounces His Selling of God’s Blessings. Critics Want More, as well:

Hinn rejected the prosperity gospel for the first time in the late 1980s and again in the early ’90s, and there were reports at the time that he had really changed. He went on to preach prosperity again.

Hinn has also ventured unorthodox descriptions of the Trinity, which critics called “tritheism,” but he corrected his theology when the criticism got to be too much. He joined the Assemblies of God for a while, accepting the oversight of the Pentecostal denomination, but then separated and went back out on his own.

If you are waiting for a Zacchaeus moment, don't hold your breath. Even while he is repenting Daniel Silliman reports: 

On the Monday broadcast, after saying he was correcting his theology, Hinn seemed to reiterate the substance of the prosperity gospel.

“I still believe in prosperity,” Hinn said. “The message of prosperity is in the Bible. We cannot deny that if we give, we will receive. That’s in the Bible. You can’t erase it. No way. God wants to bless his people way more than you want to receive that blessing. But you can’t put a price on it.” Just call me Mr. Skeptical.
