”I am a little messiah”. “I am a little god.” “I Am”. Are these the statements of a true believer? “Jesus Christ will appear bodily in upcoming crusades”. Is this how Jesus said He would appear? This video explores the world of Benny Hinn to a depth that few others have gone. Are his miracle and healing claims accurate? Is his teaching biblical? Is his transferable “anointing” from God? Do his teachings and prophesies prove that he is the type of teacher Christ told us to avoid?  This video features an informal, impromptu discussion of the teachings and practices of Benny Hinn and others by threeer Christ told us to avoid?  This video features an informal, impromptu discussion of the teachings and practices of Benny Hinn and others by three apologists who have been studying Hinn for years. These researchers/authors share their concerns about the current level of discernment among Christians with regard to teachers like Benny Hinn. This production contains a wealth of old and new video quotes with biblically based commentary. The facts presented on this video are documented and undeniable. We believe you will find this to be a valuable resource in learning to discern whether these teachers are teaching in the SPIRIT OF TRUTH OR SPIRIT OF ERROR!

To the Reader: Since the early 1990's, Benny Hinn has established an incredible and unimaginable track-record of false prophecies, false teachings, false healings, and controversies, which is reason enough for him to be considered as the most prolific heretic of our day. It is our prayer that you will read the following information carefully and prayerfully, then rely on God's holy word, the Bible, as your final authority.
This page contains an in-depth, comprehensive list of national and international articles, letters to government officials, news releases, and more that are dated from 1989 to present. For your convenience, the  page will be updated often, and will be of great use to researchers, as well as Christians worldwide.

But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse,

deceiving and being deceived.

(2 Timothy 3:13)
