Benny Hinn Renounces the Prosperity Gospel.

Over the past few days, a viral video of Benny Hinn saying he is done with the prosperity gospel has been making its rounds all over the world wide web.

Hinn has been one of the leading advocates of the prosperity gospel theology since the 1980s, but on September 2, during his 3-hour, 50-minute weekly broadcast, Hinn said he had changed.  He declared that the “Holy Ghost is just fed up with it,”  his full-throated rejection of the prosperity gospel practice that made him and his family millions has however been received with mixed feelings.

Bishop George Bloomer was one of the Preachers to responded to Hinn’s recent rejection of the prosperity gospel and said that the famed televangelist needs to clarify what the Bible says about tithes and offerings.

Bloomer said that in his own ministry, he has “from time to time” read Scripture and come to a new revelation or understanding of an ancient text.

“Before running out and sharing it with everyone, I go over it and then I make my apologies,” he said. “So I’m not bothered by new revelations, I’m not bothered by maturing and coming to a brand new understanding. I’m not bothered by a person having a personal conviction about something that they’re doing and want to correct it. I’m not bothered by that.”

However, the bishop said if he discovers that what he’s taught over the last 20 years on any given topic is “wrong,” then he owes a refund to every person he misled.

So, what exactly is the Prosperity gospel? The prosperity gospel teaches, among other things, that believers have a right to the blessings of health and wealth, and they can obtain these blessings through positive confessions of faith and the “sowing of seeds”. However, if you watch some past videos of Hinn and some of  his colleagues in the faith, you will notice that this “Prosperity Gospel” had gone too far. It got to a point where it almost felt like people were at a Christian Auction House where the highest bidder would somehow gain special access to God’s blessings (Putting a price on Gods word) and it was absolutely sad to watch.

Speaking to his followers during a Facebook Live broadcast on Monday night, Hinn declared the Gospel “is not for sale.”

“I’m sorry to say that prosperity has gone a little crazy and I’m correcting my own theology and you need to all know it. Because when I read the Bible now, I don’t see the Bible in the same eyes I saw 20 years ago,” Hinn said as his followers rejoiced.

“I think it’s an offense to the Lord, it’s an offense to say give $1,000. I think it’s an offense to the Holy Spirit to place a price on the Gospel. I’m done with it. I will never again ask you to give $1,000 or whatever amount, because I think the Holy Ghost is just fed up with it.

Hinn said he now believes such give-to-get theology is offensive to God. He specifically repudiated the practice of asking for “seed money,” where televangelists tell people that God will bless them if they give a specific dollar amount. Hinn himself has done this numerous times, promising God will give material blessings in exchange for a gift of $1,000. On Monday, he said he wouldn’t do it anymore.

“I think giving has become such a gimmick,” Hinn said. “It’s making me sick to my stomach. And I’ve been sick for a while too. I just couldn’t say it. And now the lid is off. I’ve had it. You know why? I don’t want to get to heaven and be rebuked.”

It would be great if someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I considered that the most effective way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape shops and cbd retailers. I was hoping if anybody at all could recommend a reliable web site where I can get CBD Shops B2B Database with Email Addresses I am already examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the most ideal solution and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
