Hinn has posted a plea for $2 million in donations on his website.
The televangelist says he accumulated the deficit in the past few months because offerings at some international appearances did not cover expenses.
Here’s how the prosperity scam is sold: God wants you to be rich (and/or healthy), but He can not bless you unless you first send money to whichever televangelist or teacher tells you about this scheme.
Such donations are often referred to as “seed-faith offerings” — which is why Benny Hinn is asking you to “sow the best seed you can, as quickly as you can.”
Our advice: If the prosperity gospel works as advertised, folks like Hinn should be sending you and me money so that God can bless him.
We’re not holding our breath. [See also: Hinn and money]
