    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...

    Pastor Paula White broke her silence Thursday night, addressing all the scandals that she has been associated with since her divorce in 2007. "We’re letting our hair down," White told thousands at the 2011 Pastors and Leadership Conference in Orlando, Fla. "I'm not here to look cute ... I came to let the devil know ... I'm stronger than I've ever been." Though the two-hour message began with shouts of encouragement and notes of affirmation for the participating leaders who may be facing challenges or opposition, by the end of the night it was apparent that the popular charismatic pastor...

The 57-year-old Hinn, who began his preaching career at a church hall near Yonge and Bloor Streets in the 1970s, is best known for his faith-healing “Miracle Crusades” and his half-hour television show, This is Your Day. White, 44, is the star of television’s Paula White Today, whose ministries reputedly pulled in $40 million in donations and sales of various goods in 2006.

And talking he is, about the finance probe, his lavish lifestyle and accusations that his faith healings are fake because he offers no documentation or verification that he has, in fact, helped the blind see and the crippled walk. “They question me on why I don’t verify,” Hinn says.

Or was this planned by the Obama campaign to demonstrate his hypnotic effect on liberals? Who knows? However, Obama is a piker in the fainting department compared to the Grand Master of Mass Fainting, Benny Hinn, as you can see in the VIDEO below. Until the Obamassiah can approach these levels of...

"I don't presume that you automatically support me because of a common faith," Huckabee told a group of more than 100 conservative pastors. "I know I have to earn that.

Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, is investigating several major church-based ministries known for their leaders' lavish lifestyles and prosperity teachings.

Hinn was speaking to a crowd of over ten thousand people when he inadvertently directed his healing powers too close to his head, resulting in a major concussion. Witnesses say the force of power was so strong that Hinn was literally rocketed five feet above the stage and blown back several yards. Hinn is now recovering in stable condition at the Milton S.

    This version of Benny and the jet has nothing to do with the hit Elton John song. "Benny" is Benny Hinn, the Dallas-area televangelist. The jet is Dove One, a Gulfstream G4SP that his ministry recently acquired, according to his Web site. Hinn's ministry did not return a call from the Houston Chronicle, but it has very publicly sought help paying for the plane. Hinn wants 6,000 of his "partners" to donate $1,000 each toward the down payment. Extensive information about Dove One on the Web doesn't include the total cost, but similiar Gulfstream jets appear to sell for at...

He was received at Lagos airport in a motorcade of Hummer jeeps and other...

    A few years ago, a Houston, Texas, woman went with her mother to a Benny Hinn crusade. Her mother was suffering from lung cancer and hoped to be healed by Hinn – and she got her chance, even being allowed to go on stage in front of thousands and be healed. At least, that's what she thought. The mother gave hundreds of dollars to Benny Hinn's organization and quit taking her medication. Soon after the crusade, she was dead – another of "faith-healer" Benny Hinn's followers gone. Of course, the initial thought when someone sees the extravagant crusades of Hinn...
