Some stories just write themselves:
Televangelist Benny Hinn has asked supporters of his ministry for $2.5 million in donations, which he says an anonymous donor will match dollar by dollar to help him get out of debt. “God wants your ministry to be completely out of debt, and I want to plant an anointed seed that will help you take a giant step toward becoming totally debt-free!” says the anonymous man, whom Hinn calls a “long-time and beloved” friend. “God has laid it on my heart to plant a seed of $2.5 million into your ministry, but God only wants me to make this gift if the ministry partners match the amount within 90 days! I feel so strongly that He wants them to be part of the supernatural wealth transfer that is coming to every believer who will obey God’s Word,” the man reportedly adds. (Source)
The above was reported by The Christian Post and refers to this announcement on Benny Hinn’s website, “Breaking the Bondage of Debt During the Next 90 Days” wherein Hinn writes:
You see, even as God has given us a new beginning, we have faced incredible challenges as a ministry as a result of things that happened in the past few years. At the same time our broken home was attracting attention from worldwide news services, the economies of so many of the countries where our partners live have been hit mercilessly. As a result, some of our partners decided to suspend giving or to simply walk away. And while we have seen God beginning to restore so much, one of the last pieces of the puzzle has been our finances. So you can only imagine how it nearly took my breath away when he told me how much…
The “how much” is $2.5 million, but this “very precious man of God,” as Hinn calls his donor, will only make this generous donation if Hinn’s followers will band together and donate an equal amount. Don’t worry, though, those who contribute will not be left empty handed. No, they will be “sowing a seed” so that they can receive a “debt cancellation” miracle.
Just to recap: Benny Hinn, who constantly tells his followers to “sow a seed” into his ministry so that they will be blessed financially, is gravely in debt and, instead of sowing his own financial seed someplace, he still wants his deceived and bamboozled supporters to chip in and bail him out. Got it? Good.
One wonders why the masterful Hinn does not just follow his own advice. Could he not sow his own financial seed into another so-called ministry and then sit back and wait for it to multiply so that he can pay off his debt? Perhaps this idea has not yet crossed his mind. Here at Do Not Be Surprised, we would love to promise Mr. Hinn a hundred-fold return on any financial seed he may sow, but let’s face it, if we did that we’d be pitiful, pathetic liars. To promise such a thing would make us charlatans, cheats, swindlers, frauds, quacks. . .
