“The idea that a man can be up on stage, preaching powerfully, doing miracles, healing the sick and casting out demons, all the while living a hellish life of deep sin and roiling fleshly perversion is not something new to the charismatic church. In fact, by every indication it is widely accepted to be something they hold in tension.”
(Pulpit & Pen) Benny Hinn, the virulent false teacher whom many were hopeful had smartened up and ceased his theological quackery last year when he was said to have repented of his prosperity gospel (hint, he actually didn’t), is still going at it full bore.
This was on display during an interview with leaders Daniel Hagen and Ben Fitzgerald of Fire Church, a Hillsong-ish church with a greater degree of Pentecostal twist, based out of Australia.
The interview covers a lot of ground, mostly the usual sophistry of charismatic gibberish, but one part caught our attention – a segment where Benny Hinn pretty much likens “the anointing” of God to some kind of dark spirit that stirs up a pastor to feel and act upon sinful thoughts and causes them to let their freak flag fly with strange women after they preach powerful sermons.
