Benny Hinn: Prosperity “Gospel” has damages a lot of people
Benny Hinn, the well-known faith preacher, says he has been back walking back the prosperity Gospel message for two years — which various online videos have substantiated, reports ChristianHeadlines.com.
He made this confession in an Encounter TV interview.
HINN: “It has damaged a lot of people.”
Saying he does not see the Bible in the same way he used to, Hinn claims he is into the Word “way more,” and now studies it for his own spiritual benefit.
Hinn said he wants to be a preacher of the Gospel which he described as the message that “Jesus, the Son of God, [who] came to earth, lived a sinless life, proved to be the Son of God, by the miracles, and by death and resurrection. And we have to preach Jesus, crucified, and Jesus resurrected. And to point people to the cross. Because the cross is life. The cross is what brings change to their life.”
Hinn preached to 7.3 million people in 3 crusades in 2007 and a total of 1.5 billion people over the years, according to BennyHinn.org.
Thank God He gives grace to the humble. (James 4:6)

Kenya’s preaching policeman
And finally, Kenya Standard Media featured a story on September 11th of a police Chief Inspector known as the “Preaching Policeman.”

Before locking up the criminals, he says he preaches to them – and most of them confess and turn away from crime. Then, he also works with thieves to restitute to their victims what they have stolen.
