Benny Hinn Dating Paula White? ? by Enigma(m): 6:02pm On Jul 29, 2010
I know this is gossip and I am breaking one of my own rules on trying to avoid focusing on personal relationships or morality per se of these televangelists/prosperity"gospel" people unless context requires it. However, I think the story/gossip is interesting enough!

The American rag National Enquirer reported on a romantic trip to Rome with pictures. See pictures here: http://twitpic.com/288cb8/full

However, both have "denied" 'immorality' or 'impurity' in their relationship. See story and denials here: http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2010/July/Evangelists-Hinn-White-Deny-Affair-Allegations/

If you read each "denial" carefully, you will see that they don't clearly deny that they are dating ---- just that there is no 'impurity' or 'immorality' in their relationship ----- yet (if you read Benny Hinn's carefully); and that is even if either of them can be believed.

While both Hinn, 57, and White, 44, have admitted to being friends for over two decades, both issued statements denying that there is anything inappropriate about their relationship.

"There is nothing inappropriate or morally improper about my friendship with Paula White," Hinn wrote in a message on his Web site.

In a statement issued on her Web site, White said she and Hinn have become closer since both have endured painful public divorces, but "our friendship has ,  Remained morally and spiritually pure."

Still, Hinn and White said in the future they would seek to avoid any appearance of impropriety.

"Because of my preeminent priority to my ministry and calling, Paula and I have concluded that we should avoid the appearance that our friendship is biblically impure or violates Scripture in any way," Hinn wrote.

He added that the two had "independently determined that we will have no further social relationship until such time as my divorce has concluded and only if we feel direction from the Lord to do so."

Even after the news broke, the knobhead had the gall to ask his victims, er, partners to give him 2 million dollars to cover deficit he claims to have suffered recently because people in some countries that he visited did not give. Apparently, he has now removed the appeal from his website after ridicule just as he has removed his denial of the Paula White affair.

From http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/global-filipino/world/07/29/10/televangelist-benny-hinn-asks-2-m-donation

Televangelist Benny Hinn is asking his prayer partners to donate $2 million to his ministry because of financial difficulties.

In a message in his website, Hinn said his ministry accumulated the $2 million deficit in the last few months because of the poor economy, which translated to fewer offerings in some of his crusades in different parts of the world.

He cited one crusade in Jakarta, Indonesia recently where his ministry lost money "because the people could not give."

Hinn, who built his ministry through massive healing crusades and TV shows, said Benny Hinn Ministries has cut down on staff and expenses amounting to $21 million since 2008.

He added that the $2 million deficit is not a large amount and that God could surely provide. He pointed out, however, that some of his vendors "are asking for their money. They have been very kind in helping us and standing with us, but the time has come for this deficit to be taken care of so that I can go on preaching the Gospel without pressure."

He then asked his prayer partners to sow a seed into his ministry so that the gospel would continue to be preached.

"Think about the impact, the negative impact it would have If I said, 'OK, I cannot travel anymore. The financial pressure is just too heavy on me. Let somebody else do it.' God would judge me. Secondly, think about the souls that would not hear the gospel. Is it really worth? Of course not. $2 million, that's nothing. God can do that," he said.

Maybe he should curb his high life lifestyle first

Downsizing or downgrading his 10 million dollars mansion to service the  $2 million deficit could be a start

Meanwhile apart from donating for his $2 million donor appeal, you can also buy your "prosperity prayer shawl" from Hinn's website for $50! They stop at nothing when it comes to fleecing the flock.

@Dolemite:

Sorry to burst your bubble but there do not exist "fakes" where there does not exist "originals".

Whether you find only 2 in every million, what matters and is true is that there are some (few though they are) that are true Christians.

The Hinns, Whites, etc all represent the money-based side of Christianity and you will see people like the OP on theis thread who are Christians yet do not support these "criminals in the pulpits".

Your assertion is like saying "because there are very many love-peddlers on earth, all women "on earth" are love peddlers - would you state this? This is not a "us versus them" thing where we support Christians because we are christians (I personally am ashamed of much of what I read here about so called Christians) but just the truth

3. Sorry to disappoint your judging finger. . .how patheic of you to use a church as criterion for judging who a good christian is, sometimes i feel like "praying some folks mouths remains shut expecially in issues they barely no nothing about"

4. Christian drunk. . . no wonder! companion of fools shall be destroyed, i didnt say so Proverbs. 13:20 did.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dolemite you can never comprehend the true life that stands for a taking in Christ except you come in, staying outside and judging who did what to whom are all exercises that will forever blind those who chose to be blinded.

What Humans fail to realise is that no one is ever perfect in this life, not you, not Tonye not all the christians in this world, we only try to live justified to God through the gift of righteousness in Christ. I cannot tell you a day goes by without me erring one way or the other, but one thing remains sure. . .and that is inspite of my fallibles i am sure Someone still Loves me i am sure Someone still accepts me the way i am, someone still sees me as a Son regardless of my prodigality.


Heb 4:15-16 (NIV)
15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are — yet was without sin.
16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.


We do not have any right whatsoever to judge another man's servant, let the man be judged by his master

Rom 14:4 (NIV) - Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

Life has never being easy for any human on earth let alone a Christian, we hear of Christian folks swinging in intimate immoralities daily, we hear of some believing folks stealing from church treasuries and everyone is bold to open their silly mouths to talk all sorts of rubbish about them without realising what they go through, without realising the testing they face from God for their acclaimed steafastness.

We owe them love, we owe them prayers, we owe them acceptance. for let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he falls!(Scriptures)

Your bible says by their fruits you shall know them, there are decievers EVERYWHERE, it's supposed to be the endtime, satan disguised as an angel of light? DUH!! I'm not judging anyone, but when someone who is supposed to be holier than me a wicked sinner who is doomed to hell for eternity with master Satan (giggles) engages in nefarious activities. . .I raise an eyebrow. . .

This is the same mentality Christians have and i DON'T understand it, listen if you accept god into your life, the holy spirit dwells in you right? and that spirit tells you whats right and whats wrong, so why then would you err (I can understand the little occasional white lie here or some insignificant goof up there) but the sins or activities prevailant in Christianity is damning, when you become a Christian you are NOT human like everyone else, bible says you become a NEW creature right? but yet i see you guys doing the most evil of things, defiling the body of Christ so to say. . .not talking from a high horse, im not a pastor i don't even believe in god, but deep down i wish you Christian lived up to what the bible preaches, Nigeria would become a better place if you did, even the most basic one 'love thy neighbour as yourself' is lacking. . .

I'm not into tarot readers etc. However, I know you cannot show me a "fake" 2, 000 Naira note. Why? The original doesn't exist.

BTW, in the past, Nigerians did use friends and associates to launder money. Whether they used email to solicit for such or not is out of the realm of this discussion.
