One of the worst heretics out there is a man named Benny Hinn. The guy cannot be a Christian; the doctrine he preaches is so unbiblical and his behavior is often demonic. His followers may or may not be Christians, but all are deceived. He is one of those people who always says something which leads to the question, “Did he really say that?!?!” Let me give you some of my favorite quotes, which prove he is a false teacher and false prophet (if anyone wants the reference sources, just ask - I don’t want to take the time here to cite them all).
“If we quit giving you new revelations, we’re dead.”
“I’m sick and tired of hearing about streets of gold. I don’t need gold in heaven, I’ve got to have it now!”
“Poverty is a demon. God had to show me a vision of a demon literally to prove this to me.”
“I feel revelation knowledge already coming on me. ... Holy Spirit take over in the name of Jesus. ... You say, ‘I never heard of that.’ Well do you think you’re in this church to hear things you’ve heard for the last fifty years?”
“The Spirit of God tells me an earthquake will hit the east coast of America and destroy much in the nineties.” [never happened]
“Not one place will be safe from earthquakes in the nineties. Those who have not known earthquakes will know it.” [never happened]
“The Spirit tells me Fidel Castro will die in the nineties.” [still alive in 2012]
“And angels to this day can decide to rebel against God.”
“Now the Lord just told me - and I don’t know whether this is true or not...”
“The Lore also tells me to tell you that in the mid-nineties, about ’94 or ’95, no later than that, God will destroy the homosexual community of America.”
“You wonderful people of God quit attacking men of God by name! Somebody’s attacking me because of something I’m teaching! Let me tell you something brother, you watch it! ... Don’t attack this man of God [speaking of heretic Paul Crouch]. There is a group here in California that thinks they are the judgment seat of Christ! They judge everything that you do. Listen here fellah, let me tell you something, you’re not my judge. Jesus is my judge! You walk around with your stiff lip and collar on your neck - dear God in heaven I wish I could just - ooh! They call it a ‘ministry,’ my foot! You know I’ve looked for one verse in the Bible, I just can’t seem to find it, one verse that says ‘If you don’t like ‘em, kill ‘em.’ I really wish I could find it!... Ladies and gentlemen, don’t attack God’s servants! Don’t publicly attack them by name! ... don’t mention people’s names on your radio program or your TV program - thinking you’re doing God’s service - you’re not! You stink - frankly that’s the way I think about it! ...Sometimes I wish God would give me a Holy Ghost Machine Gun - I blow your head off!”
And my personal favorite:
“God the Father is a person and He is a triune being by Himself separate from the Son and the Holy Ghost. ... God the Father is a person, God the Son is a person, God the Holy Spirit is a person, but each of them is a triune being by Himself. If I can shock you, and maybe I should, there are nine of them. ... God the Father is a person with His own personal spirit, with His own personal soul and His own personal spirit body. ... God the Father is a person separate from the Holy Ghost. Totally separate. ... Do you know the Holy Spirit has a soul and a body separate from that of Jesus and the Father? ... God the Father then is a triune being within Himself. He’s a person, He has His own Spirit, He has a soul. ... God the Father is a separate individual from the Son and the Holy Ghost, who is a triune being who walks in a spirit body and He has hair...has eyes...has a mouth...has hands.”
There are soooooo many things like this from Hinn that it is hard to choose what are the most absurd. I think the man is demonically possessed.
