NBC Dateline: Benny Hinn's lavish lifestyle exposed!!!

The video above is worth the watch on self-proclaimed anointed Benny Hinn.

I always wonder what what televangelists do between their globe-trotting conversion crusades? This NBC Dateline special on Benny Hinn would put most true christians to shame.
Facts on Benny:-- Hinn's salary is somewhere between $500K and a million dollars per year.
-- he has a $10 million seaside mansion,.
-- he owns a private jet with annual operating costs of about $1.5 million. and he drives a Mercedes SUV and convertible, valued at about $80,000 each.

I agree with Christian watch dog, you're a servant for God's people, not a King and shouldn't be living like one.

Some will be shock. Some will not be surprise like me. Some will deny it, which would not surprise me.

Benny Hinn continued to reject any commitment to join a Evangelical Council For Financial Accountability.

"He has also been criticized by a number of Christian watchdog groups for not joining the Evangelical Council For Financial Accountability. The Council is the leading accreditation agency that helps Christian ministries earn the public’s trust through adherence to seven standards of accountability. It has over 1,100 members, including Pat Robertson and Billy Graham. Benny Hinn refuses to join.
...Benny Hinn insists that every penny is spent on God's work. But the fifth estate obtained confidential financial records from inside the Hinn ministry. These documents were provided by individuals who say they want the public to know how Benny Hinn spends the money entrusted to him.

The fifth estate asked Roddy Allan, a forensic accountant, to review the ministry's expense and travel records. He says, "I'm a mere bean counter, but it would be hard to persuade me that you had to incur that kind of expense in order to accomplish a business objective."

Oh, let's not forget his failed prophecies on the gay community:

"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."
-- Orlando Christian Center, Dec. 31st, 1989

Hey Benny, we're still here, and still gay. What God told him that? Certainly, not the God I know.

From CBS News: CBS News has learned Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa, the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, is investigating six prominent televangelist ministries for possible financial misconduct.
...According to Grassley's office, the Iowa Republican is trying to determine whether or not these ministries are improperly using their tax-exempt status as churches to shield lavish lifestyles.

The six ministries identified as being under investigation by the committee are led by: Paula White, Joyce Meyer, Creflo Dollar, Eddie Long, Kenneth Copeland and Benny Hinn. Three of the six - Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland and Creflo Dollar - also sit on the Board of Regents for the Oral Roberts University.

One down, and four or more to go.Paula White, Joyce Meyer, Creflo Dollar, Eddie Long, and Kenneth Copeland. You guys are next on the list. I hope you're not mis-handling your money like Benny.

Regardless of what these accountants may find, Benny is not making people give to him. Honestly, I figure a great portion of this income is from catholic viewers who like his ministry. There is nothing wrong in financially giving to your local church or a church/ministry that you feel is reaching out to people. These ministers are not officially charged with any crime and most of them report their financial statement publicly; however, they are not obligated to do so, which is there right as a 501 C 3 status organization.

It takes money to preach the gospel, operate the church and do the business of the church. At least the church is trying to help people and giving them guidance and bible teaching to help them spiritually and even in other areas of their lives.

Yet, you have these rappers and thug-like ganstas making millions and still killing people, buying drugs and guns and no one say anything about that! Why is it OK for them to have a mansion, jet and cars and rap about sex, violence, murder, and all other foolishness and you want to falsely accuse a pastor of taking in too much money? That is backwards to me. That says YOUR morals are in the wrong place.

Lastly, for every minister that is under attack for false accusations, I hope more money, wealth and help come to those ministries to make them even stronger to service the people, community and lay persons who attend these churches.

The reason why the devil want to attack the church financially is to keep them from advancing in helping people and spreading the truth in God's word. I know for a fact, the church will prevail any and all accusations now and forever.
