Have you heard? Benny Hinn has renounced the prosperity gospel. He says, “It is an offense to put a price tag on the Gospel”.
I do not know much about Mr. Hinn. I’ve never kept up with any of the prosperity gospel teachers, but I imagine this has come as quite a shock to his crowd and associates. If he is sincere in his sincerity of the true Gospel of Christ, then Amen and praise God!
Michael Snyder from End of the American Dream website writes:
This represents a 180 degree turn for his ministry, and it could be a watershed moment for American evangelical Christianity as a whole. For decades, an extreme emphasis on wealth and prosperity has virtually drowned out the message of the cross on Christian television, and this has greatly damaged the evangelical movement. Having high profile leaders such as Benny Hinn renounce the “prosperity gospel” would do much to heal the damage that has been done, and he should be greatly applauded for his public repentance.
