Hinn was born in Israel in 1953. He was raised as a Greek Orthodox and went to
a Catholic school. He claims to have had two visions and an appearance of Jesus
at age 11 before he was converted. This appearing he says continues to occur regularly
since he became a Christian. At the age of 14 the family moved to Toronto, Canada.
Hinn has given a few different stories about when and how his conversion happened.
He claims it occurred in 1972. But this differs from his story on a recorded testimony
from a 1987 recording describing The Angel of the Lord in a vision taking him
into a room in the high school and there he was saved.
his book, Good Morning Holy Spirit, he said the angel dropped him off on Don Mills
road outside the wall of his school. Then in the 1981 publication of the PTL Devotional,
he said "I got saved in Israel in 1968". Yet in a 1983 message in St. Louis, he
claimed that someone witnessed to him and he got saved after he came to Toronto
from Israel. He also tells of his family members giving their hearts to the Lord
at different times. However, in 1984, in his book War in the Heavenlies, he said
that all his family was saved at the same time. There were multiple claims in
his stories, and Hinn is found to be consistently inconsistent with his word.
One can only wonder which story, if any, is accurate.

watched this guy, I am convinced that he is a plant from India, and I have clearly
detected mystic Hinduism and Yoga in his teaching. Nine members in the godhead
is a start, and he teaches that the way to fulfill Romans 12:1-2 is to eat oatmeal,
yogurt, and a banana a day-- NO meat. Honest, friends, my whole family saw it
on his TV program. Even his head movements and his hand gestures are distinctly
Indian from India. I grew up with Indians as neighbors. You who have lived in
India, check it out on his next TV show. Hinn's low view of the holiness of God
is classic Hinduism. I believe Benny Hinn was "born again" under the
power of Shiva, not Jesus Christ.
AN ONLINE FORUM: Years ago, I was watching Benny Hinn with my girlfriend (now
my wife), and I remember jumping out of my seat and screaming, "LOOK AT THAT!!!!"...
Benny was 'curing' a baby from the AIDS virus, but the camera man accidentally
zoomed in too close, and any fool could see the 'baby' was a PLASTIC BABY DOLL!!!

Update-- HANKY PANKY IN HINNVILLE
need to know which spirit works amongst Charismatics. In about 1905, a Black preacher
at the Azuza Street Mission in Los Angeles stuck his head in a butter box, and
when he pulled it out, he was babbling in tongues. This at once broke out in many
places in the USA. It has forever been claimed that this was the work of the Holy
Ghost. Divine healing was added, along with prophecy and automatic writing. The
evolution of alleged works of the Holy Spirit has now come to gold dust falling
from heaven, holy odors, teeth being filled, and many other vulgar activities.
come to the moment with the words of Benny Hinn and his wife. These two people
are highly representative of Pentecostalism and Charismatics, so I believe what
you are about to hear is the true spirit of the whole Charismatic Movement to
the video of the scam that failed-- Please note the suspense over naming
March 3rd with virtually NO specifics except a "change." This is pure
guruism based only on the personality of Benny Hinn and his side kick, Stephen,
who bolsters the scam with a slaying trick. Nothing happened on March 3rd. Also,
please note the Nehru jacket. Hmmmmmm
of Benny Hinn-- If any Fundamental Baptist pastor would
talk this way, the Feds would be on his case in a flash. Why do the Feds ignore
Benny Hinn and Crouch when they make death threats? Could it be that there is
some symbiotic relationship between the Feds and Hinn?
says you are everything Jesus was and will ever be-- This is the pinnacle
of all blasphemies ever purported by the Charismatic mob. You need to understand
that this is the fruit of John and Charles Wesley. They did NOT control the frenzy
in their meetings. They imagined it was the work of the Holy Ghost. They gave
the historic foundation for these Mother Gooseisms we see today. We may groan
at the dullness in the Reformed churches, but there is one thing you will NOT
find in any Reformed Creed-- Holy Rollin'. Fundamental Baptists are right NOW
going through a transition in which frenzy, throwing things, running the bases,
and mad hollering, are taking over in the services. This is the work of the same
devils that are working Brownsville, and it is CERTAIN that you will soon be hearing
Fundamental, KJV Only Baptists, breathing out heresies to keep the hype going
strong. In fact, we deal with this in our Jack Boot Baptist
in a long clip giving devils liberty in several ways with people You will
hear laughing which is very unnatural. You will hear Copeland giving instructions
in tongues, which is NOT a biblical concept. You will see a man doing a soft shoe
dance that would make Fred Astair marvel. I have the video of this scene, and
the man appears to virtually float as he is dancing. The steps he did were
amazing. There is power here. Also, listen as he commands the Lord like a
dog, "Get 'em."
Conclusion, the above Satanic and fleshly manifestations are not so frightening
in that the leaders are mocking God. What is terrifying is that thousands of alleged
saints are eating this up and being manipulated so completely and willingly. What
is in store in the future as the leaders call, more and more, on the faithful
to hate and lash out at those who question these alleged ministries?
