Okay, so that was a little lame, but the Lord has strengthened my blogging legs, so it is time move on!
I am going to play blog-sucker for you, and leach together some material on the Benny Hillnn Show that I have sourced on the blogosphere.
Justin “the Source” Taylor has a couple of posts, with videos to prove it, on subjects relating to the man.
Taylor affirms from this piece the following about Him… and Hinn
- cost of his 7,000 sq-ft house: $10-million
- amount spent per month for his private jet: $112,000
- price of his two cars: $80,000 each
- cost per night for staying at 5,400 sq ft luxury hotel room during a “layover”: $10,800 per night paid
- tips for a 3-day period: $4,500.
So what you say! Is such paradigmatic?
If you want more info., check out Taylor’s post, which has a couple of videos to boot!
Recently Benny was interviewed on Nightline in the States. Here he is for your viewing pleasure discernment!
Thanks to “The Source,” here it is!
You can also catch some good commentary from Joe “I can still see your namesake gyrating around all the bases in Toronto for the Blue Jays in the World Series Carter”… I wanted Philly BTW! However, that was then and this is now, and its all the Bronx Bombers for me!
What say you… about Benny, not the Bombers?
Even if one wants to claim that God has spoken and acted through the ministry of Benny Hinn, which I would not be surprised about, although such a defense I believe, is asking the wrong question Nebuchadnezzar. God has already affirmed that He can work through any man for His purposes, and He can also speak through a donkey, and it was a dumb ass too… the donkey, that is!
The question is not whether it works or the subsequent effects, which is often how the discussion is framed in this man’s context. Remember, such can also be replicated, but from a very different source!
Does the man minister the TRUTH!
I know that may sound like an open-ended answer, but time is not on my side, and I have an essay to write! Therefore, it is time to encourage wisdom to cry out into your streets!
Anyway, feel free to knock me over [its beginning to flow] with your wrath for touching the anointed One… and here was I thinking that there was only one such individual, who started with the letter “B” in the US context, who had such a title… O well, stimulus me, and I will reform!
To encourage you on your way, let me finish with these two quotes, which, if you are interested, float over that lovely picture changer when you put your mouse over each photo [seriously, there is some wisdom from above there]…
The difference between truth and error is not a chasm, but a razor’s edge – John Murray.
Discernment is not a matter of simply telling the difference between what is right and wrong; rather it is the difference between what is right and almost right – Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Seriously, such may be an opportunity to pray that God’s grace or, if he continues [have I already spoken?], God’s judgment would be more evident in the life and ministry of this man. The church needs leaders who they can prayerfully trust such is a true shepherd of the sheep, not only in pastoral matters, where the Shepherd metaphor finds its resonance, but as a paradigm of direction as it relates to all matters of faith and practice!
Until Next Time
