Tracking Bentley back to Benny
There used to be some videos on YouTube that revealed some very sad issues behind the ministry of Benny Hinn that are very damaging to the body of Christ and the way the world perceives Christians. Due to recent threatened legal action against YouTube, some of these videos have been removed from their site.
Now they are on Google.
Sad to say, many sincere people have been deeply influence by the teachings of Benny Hinn. One of those is Todd Bentley. Here are some quotes:
“Todd had not been spiritually born into, or grown up in a religious church environment. The first Christian book he had read was “Good Morning Holy Spirit” by Benny Hinn. Therefore, Todd did not realize that praying and soaking in the Holy Spirit many hours a day was unusual. Like Benny Hinn, as a newborn Christian, Todd had learned that extended times of intimacy with the Lord was normal Christian living.”

“On Tuesday afternoon, Bentley’s staff talked excitedly about inquiries from NBC and CNN. They said there is interest in the revival from someone affiliated with Benny Hinn, the Christian televangelist and faith healer who was born in Israel to Palestinian-Armenian parents and became a Christian as an adult.
“Wouldn’t it be great if Benny came?” one staffer said.”

“Let me give you a little background. I was impacted years ago, and first introduced to this kind of intimacy, through the ministries of Benny Hinn and Kathryn Kuhlman. They opened the way for me to go beyond the power of God’s Spirit, the gifts or any kind of experience like the baptism of the Holy Spirit.” -Todd Bentley
