The Benny Hinn Show [possible theme song]
posted by boost ventilator (13 comments total)

That man is going to have it rough on judgment day.

"And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ..." (Ephesians 4)

Fuck, I thought Jesus was DEAD! When did this happen? I seriously need to keep in touch with current events.

Ha ha! "Yackity Sax"! No one has ever before made the observation that "Benny Hinn" and "Benny Hill" are very similar names. You're awesome! Why are you posting here instead of writing episodes of "The World According to Jim"?

This guy weirds me out. I've seen him in passing on the god bothering channels (TBN Europe if memory serves) and his schtick seems to consist of walking on stage dressed like a "Wild and crazy guy"-era Steve Martin and then procceeds to hit people until they fall down and then proclaim them to be healed.

It really is horrible to see so many gullible, superstitious fools feeding the guy money.

Easy killer. That's a little harsh for polite company. I was talking to a guy once who called Jim Belushi "The Wrong One." Who was it . . . oh yeah, God.

I didn't realize it was an either/or kind of thing. I would like to think people read all the links to see the content and context before the inevitiable snarkfest begins. To claifity, I posted this because of the financial documents and apologize for hastily packaging it as a bad, out-of-date pop culture pun.

What is this post about - When you hear Benny Hinn you think Benny Hill?
now I know I'm not alone with this thought

Sartorially speaking, Benny Hinn has got his swerve on. After JC returns and schedules the first Pentacostal awards show, I'm sure BH will get the nod as emcee. One well-dressed, sheep-shearing, slippery slickster.

In case you can't scroll down, here is a direct link to section of the page containing the uncovered financial documents. You also need Acrobat Reader, which was not implicit in my post because they are PDF files. Can I stop there? Lesson learned: Onions make for bad posts. The multiple layers make people cry.

How can you bring up Benny Hinn and not discuss the hair?

The interview with Justin Peters and the excerpts from his thesis are devastating. For more info on the topic of word of faith and prosperity gospel, read the book Christianity in Crisis.

Hinn may be a con man, but at least he's not as scary as these folks.
