BENNY HINN'S 'ANOINTING'-TBN's Paul Crouch interviewed Benny Hinn, Sept.
13 on TBN. In the opening exchanges,
Hinn appealed to Kathryn Kuhlman for his "cursing and blessing" pronouncements at a recently held Healing Crusade in
Denver. He said: "I place a curse on every man and woman that will stretch his hand against this anointing. I curse that man
who dares to speak a word against this ministry. But any man, any woman that raises his or her hand in blessing toward this
ministry, I bless that man…." The New Zealand paper, Contending Earnestly for the Faith (9/99) mentioned "a dangerous
trend toward Catholic-type worship and ecumenical unity" in recent Hinn programs. It said a number of third wave charismatics were recent guests, and that Hinn is assuming the apostolic father figure of the healing ministry.
BENNY HINN SAYS DEAD IN CASKETS WILL BE RAISED TO LIFE AT TV SETS- Charismatic
leader Benny Hinn
on Paul & Jan Crouch's TBN said people are going to be raised from the dead watching TBN. He said "People are going to
be canceling funeral services and bringing their dead in their caskets, placing them before a TV set, waiting for God's power
to…touch them." He said they would be raised from the dead by the thousands (11/22 Chr. News). BDM editor Rick Miesel
said the listed speakers for a 12/3 $100/plate Benny Hinn 25th anniversary dinner in Anaheim, CA included Paul Crouch, Jack
Hayford, Oral Roberts, E.V. Hill, and Rex Humbard. Hinn mentioned, at the start of his 10/99 Denver Healing Crusade (TBN
tape), that Tim LaHaye and Jerry Falwell would also be dinner speakers. In a phone call to Falwell's office, a Mr. Westover
told the CC editor that Falwell "may be there, but he's not going to be speaking." Falwell and Hinn were featured speakers at a
4/96 Washington for Jesus rally (6/15/96 CC). Hinn said he recently had a long meeting with Falwell. He has left his Orlando
church and moved to Dallas. In Jan. he breaks ground for a $30-$35 million Healing Center in Dallas, which will operate 24
hours a day when opened in 2001.
