    But if it turns out I am not actually first, I will just put a spin on it to justify my lies because I am not a fraud :mrgreen:

  2. Tim says:

    You’re only 1st, because Hinn’s press agent got in my way. 😉

    About the interview…that was…interesting?

  3. Michael says:

    Too weird for words…

  4. Xenia says:

    Satan done snatched ol’ Benny outta the bosom of the One True Church.

  5. Nomans says:

    You caught that, huh? 🙂
    I will say, the old “good cop bad cop” gig between Hinn & his PA played out well :/
    On a planet where well means disastrous

  6. Rob Murphy says:

    I don’t know if I could pull off dressing like I belong on the album cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

    That interviewer’s “Why?” (at the end, last 15 seconds) and the look on his face is the definition of ‘confounded’.

    I think Benny thinks he’s coming across much differently than he actually is.

  7. Jerry Frank says:

    I worked at TBN for 5 years and we were really divided about the doctrines that were floating around. Specifically the ‘name it and claim it’ and ‘BE HEALED!’ ones. God does bless and heal and he acually uses these guys in spite of the wackiness of their techniques. Still, they are mostly about the excitment of the flesh above the true caring of the soul. I know folks were actually healed though – boy, that’s streaching the term – him and others like Kathrine Khulman. God don’t need us. But, he wants to take care of his kids and he will do it in any way he can as long as it brings glory back to himself.

    The next time you see Hinn on TV, just turn it off.

  8. Tim says:

    “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”

    Oh great…now I’m going to have the album running through my head all afternoon. Thanks. 😉

  9. Dusty says:

    How is your recovery coming along Michael?

  10. Dusty says:

    Any word on DMW?

    Seth is sick.

  11. Jerry F says:

    Oh, don’t pay attention to that man behind the curtain. That’s NOT my real name–I don’t think teir buying it. RATS!

  12. Erunner says:

    It’s unfathomable to watch a man who represents the same God we do sitting and lying so casually about things so serious. If I was a devotee that interview would cause me to send another check.

    The first time I became aware of Benny is when TBN decided to give him air time in what seemed an unlimited capacity. By going wall to wall with in studio interviews and enthusiastic endorsements for his crusades while airing them it seemed his ministry grew exponentially. I’m sure Benny returned the favor by doing Praise-A-Thons for them which helped bring in untold millions.

    If I’m not mistaken the God Channel went 24/7 with Lakeland and a prophet was born. He also had big names endorsing him. I’m wondering how these people would have fared if modern media wasn’t around to jump start their ministries?

    Can you imagine the good that could be done if the funds from these folks was placed in the hands of ministries that used it wisely? I confess there is a part of me that wants to believe Benny and Todd. The idea they are frauds representing the living God is still something I can’t fathom even though Scripture speaks of it time and again.

    Michael, this generation of believers needs heroes they can look at and emulate. My two are Joni and Corrie Ten Boom. Maybe once a month you could highlight a person in the body or one who has moved on for us?? Start with Mr. Rogers! I’m sure the ODM’s haven’t bothered with him. :mrgreen: God bless!

  13. Xenia says:

    Dusty, oh no. What’s up with Seth?

  14. Rob Murphy says:

    Tim: “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”

    Oh great…now I’m going to have the album running through my head all afternoon. Thanks.

    I could make it worse. The horrific “movie version”. Peter Frampton is your Billy. Alice Cooper, because the world is round. Steve Martin’s ‘Maxwell’s Silver Hammer’. Ghastly, man.
    The good: EWF’s version of “Got To Get You Into My Life” and Billy Preston. You gotta love Billy Preston.

  15. Dusty says:

    Xenia, he has gotten a cold…because he has still not fully recovered this is not a good thing.

    Oden’s post on FB “Seth is sick. Somehow he got a bug. He sneezes and is congested, but no fever. We’re waiting to call our doctors at UCLA this morning. Our three year old also is sick and has a low grade fever. We’ve stayed home, disinfected the house, …doorknobs, toys, etc. and the bugs get in anyway. It’s going to be a long winter. Thankfully, we still rest in God’s hands and His love for us. He knew all of this would happen.”

    “I don’t know if I could pull off dressing like I belong on the album cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”


    that is the post of the thread……………… nice work Rob………..

  17. Jerry F says:

    More Seth prayers.

  18. Tim says:

    Billy Preston was the best part about that movie…even if they did have him playing trumpet & not a B-3.

    Believe it or not, I actually liked the Steve Martin version. It seemed like he was one of the only guys in the movie who saw it for the farce that it was. 🙂 That, and Aerosmith’s version of “Come Together”…serious competition for the Beatles’ original, in my book.

  19. bishopdave says:

    Off subject, but is link-a-thon coming back?

  20. Jerry F says:

    A copy of the original is a COPY! And, Billy was the 5th Beatle anyway.

  21. London says:

    That interview was too funny!
    I watched it last night and all I could think was that he really needs some acting lessons before his next one. What a laugh…

  22. Michael says:

    Link-a-thon will return tonight or tomorrow.

  23. Ron says:

    Amazing to watching Todd Bentleys’ interviews with Joyner. Well crafted denials, half truths, passive dismissals…all swept away with a little contorting in his chair and a smirk. Really he gave anyone who dares confront this…excuse my bluntness..the proverbial midddle finger. And why wouldn’t he? The “handler” the bodyguards, the completely insulated life he leads, and those who continue TENS of millions of dollars a year into his pocket, so he can jet around the world in luxury conducting his charade. Staggering that there are brethere..yes brethren who are being defeiled by those in the Word of Faith bowel movement and the NAR “apostles” and “prophets” that are increasing…yes increasing in popularity. And yet, we are promised, Chirst’s word gives us comfort that even the very elect may be deceived. It gives me comfort, becuase I wonder, I am stunned not by the factm but by the brazen audacity of those doing so.

  24. centorian says:

    Billy…. not Preston, but Billy Shields……..

    He say one and one and one is three…. 8)

  25. London says:

    “I want to tell it all….I don’t want people talking for me. I want to talk for myself”

    Anyone want to wager that there’s a “Benny Hinn: The untold story” book coming out soon?

  26. Papias says:

    I would not bet against you on that one! 🙂

    btw, I just renewed my PMP status until 2012. So the hunt for PDU’s has ceased … for now.
    How’s your PM world?

  27. Jerry F says:

    I am amazed that little Seth Fong was (and is being) healed in spite of the wackiness that is being told to us that this is the only way you can be healed. We have watched Seth come through some pretty horrifying events with a smile on his face. And I look at this and can truly see GOD’s hand at work. It’s marvelous. BUt, the OOO – WOW style that Benny portrays is a little nuts to me. I’m not saying that what Paul did and others isn’t correct…that would be close to blasphemy. But, Benny makes a show of it in a Sgt. Peppers style suit. Where’s the modesty and humility? Are we more interested in wathching the “show” or seeking God and glorifying him? Like I said before, just turn it off and go read the BOOK.

  28. Jim Jacobson says:

    What a tragic joke. The publicist was so obvious. Hinn sounds more like a politician than a man of God.
    “I’m glad you asked,… really!” LOL

  29. Benny! Go to your room. You’re a bad boy!

  30. in need of forgiveness says:

    I’m sad because every longtime Christian friend who I hold dear thinks Benny is right on and “called of God”. One of them also thought Todd Bentley was “called” too and that the “naysayers” were tools of satan. My old pastor is fast friends with Benny, and his greed brought his ministry down. I am in awe of God who sustains me and keeps me wanting more of Him. I live two miles from an excellent church with a wonderful, loving pastor, but I rarely go. Any suggestions on how to lift my ample posterior up off the chair, into my car and down the hill? I’m in a season of “I love Jesus but I don’t wanna go to church”. Got LOTS of excuses and ZERO reasons.

  31. mrtundraman says:

    Rom 14:4 Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.

  32. Dusty says:

    lol, wow, I never that I would see the day you would quote that verse Mr.Tundraman.

    How are you?

  33. Michael says:

    That was hysterical…and a reminder that I hadn’t banned you yet.

    That’s fixed now…

  34. Dusty says:

    hi big brother.

  35. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    Bring back Tundra – Bring back Tundra – Bring back Tundra.

  36. Dusty says:

    no MLD, Michael is right to keep him away.

  37. Dusty says:

    I see how you are from your post to Michael, Mr. T…still mean. 🙁

  38. Erunner says:

    I’m going to introduce another excellent foundation on my blog next Monday. It has to do with fighting the stigma of mental illness. They have some Hollywood clout behind them and they’re doing media visits currently.

    In my earlier post I went on about the likes of Benny Hinn. I would love to introduce a huge Christian organization to my readers but I can’t find one. Can you imagine if Hinn and Copeland each gave ten million dollars to someone in the body to help those with mental illness how much God could do? Insert Gospel For Asia or any number of worthy causes.

    I link to a lot of folks where Christ isn’t part of the solution. I understand God’s will can’t be thwarted but it’s tough at times when you see untold millions going down the toilet in the name of Jesus.

    Doug needs to show fruits of repentance before he should ever be allowed on this site again. Those he has hurt publicly he needs to go and make things right.

  39. Augustine says:

    Went to a Hinn service a few years ago. Even went up on stage. He took one look at me and kept going. I wonder why? lol

  40. Nomans says:

    Uncle Scoot is coming over for supper tonight! 😀

  41. Erunner says:

    Prepare a feast Nomans for our road weary traveler! Have a wonderful time of fellowship!

  42. puzzletop says:

    LOLOL That’s fixed now. ROFLMAO

  43. Concerned says:

    I went to a Hinn meeting very early in my Christian walk and on Friday night, the fist night he said that everyone shoudl come back tomorrow and that there would be angels present.
    Needless to say I didn’t go back.
    The fact that he thought he could command angels really made me angry..and no less predict the time…

    Also, I watched Benny on TBN many yrs ago and he seemed to always have angels appear to him at his bedside at night. He never mentioned his wife saw them.
    I guess she slept through it.

  44. Nene says:

    Normans and Scott, have a wonderful time at dinner, too cool!

    Praying for safety, and contiuned blessings as a you travel Scott. Normans, whatz you cookin’ up? Why do I have a feeling anything you cook is good? 🙂

  45. Eric Hoffman says:

    I’ve met 2 people who came to Christ via Benny. One of them at one of his “shows.” That person said that before the cameras went on and the “healing service” began that he did give a straight forward Gospel presentation. Guess that proves that God will not be mocked and He will still work through an as* as He sees fit.

    I have hours of Hinn footage archived and found it funny that the dead man thing is still coming up. That rates up there with other claims he made:

    * A man turned into a snake
    * A demon possessed man lifted a grand piano with one hand and threw it
    * Adam could fly to the moon, making him the first superman
    * The Egyptian soldiers didn’t drown in the Red Sea, rather God breathed on the water, turned it into ice, and it broke, thus crushing the soldiers to death

    Too bad Tilton doesn’t pop back up, he’s even funnier. My favorite was his excuse for spending ministry dollars on his plastic surgery to fix the bags under his eyes. Seems he got “ink poisoning” from laying on all the prayer requests he received. 🙂

    Amazing how some never learn.

  46. Dusty says:


    Angel voice is a wonderful cook. Scott is going to have a wonderful time…he will be made to feel right at home. Hope he can talk her into playing the piano and singing some worship songs…

  47. Dusty says:

    good night family…sleep well.

  48. Glenn says:

    Never fear Eric –

    I was surfing the SkyAngel channels the other night and
    Tilton is back! Hmmm………..

  49. Glenn says:


    For more current info on Robert T go to
    He has a daily show on World Harvest Television.

    For some real inspiration today, I watched the opening of the FFA Convention
    on RFDTV. The keynote speaker was Mike Rowe – the guy who has the show:
    Dirty Jobs. His main point was that there is nothing wrong with good, hard,
    honest work – that those doing that, know something that the Wall Street types
    and ivory or is that ivy tower guys don’t.
    My application here is that the pastors out there doing the real work maybe
    know some things the theologians in there towers don’t. Just a thought.

  50. Nene says:

    Dustygirl, I thought I heard some beautiful piano, and worship in the distance tonight! Do you think? 😉 Sleep well….

  51. Nene says:

    Glenn, FFA?? I had no idea the Convention was televised…my “very cool” blue jacket got tossed out, like I’d wear it again! 🙂 Good memories…

  52. London says:

    Papi, it’s a wise choice not to take that bet 🙂

    congrats on the PMP re-newal. My PM world is at a bit of a stand still right now. I need a project to work on. Know of any? 😉 Actually, what I’d really like is to work on a project as a worker bee. I’m doing some cool stuff with my church group that I’d like to continue to pursue further, I think ultimately moving into some sort of more “ministry related” field. Not sure what that means exactly yet…But, I’d like to not be “in charge” of a huge project outside of that again. Especially not one that I have to rescue out of the toilet again. NEVER want to take on a project like the last one again…
    I’m really SUPER good at work flows, process improvement and testing (I seem to have a “gift” for testing actually) I love configuration and design, and especially training. Those things are “fun” for me. Even being a project coordinator would be cool. I just don’t want to be the “top dog” cause I want to be sure I have some time I can free up for the church stuff I’m involved with. (how utterly BIZZARE is THAT???) 😉
    If you know anyone looking…let me know would ya?

  53. London says:

    just want to write the word again, again 🙄

  54. Psalm62 says:

    bouncing off of the comments immediately above – am I the only one that senses our country turning against the slick, manipulative packaging that has been held up as “ideal”… not just the few folks, but a trend in the nation?
    maybe our small, churches pastored by honest, sincere Christ-centered men or women(?) and attended by honest folk who come to worship and learn more of Christ will yet have the floor…
    my 50-ish daughter told me that their group of church buddies that camp together every year have discovered a country church near the campground where “all the men were in flannel shirts and overalls.” Lots of “howdy neighbor” handshakes, too. The campers (all ages) loved it!

    God comfort and keep all close tonight…

  55. Nomans says:

    Erunner, I went with comfort food, as I’m sure that doesn’t come by easy on the road.
    Nene & Dusteroo,
    Thank you!
    We did indeed worship together, but not with music & lyrics.
    All I can say, is we are very blessed to have such a dear saint as Scott as part of our fellowship here at the PP.
    What a wonderful man of God. He brought with him words of life, and a cup of cold water.
    The Nomans family is richer now than we were 5 hours ago.
    Love you PP family

  56. Scott says:

    Had a wonderful time with the Nomans family tonight! What wonderful host(s) and what an amazing cook Nomans is! More than that, the fellowship and breaking of bread around the Lord Jesus was truly a blessing! Thank you for having me. And oh yeah, their boys are the most handsome a respectful young men I’ve ever met.

  57. Please Note says:

    I am dutifully jealous…

    Scott is a great, great guy, who has been more the ‘hands and feet’ of Jesus than anyone I’ve ever known…

    And Nomans had been a wonderful sister to others offline, and to many of us here online…

    I bet that was indeed a blessed time…

    …did I mention that I am dutifully jealous 8)

  58. Please Note says:


    I menat “Nomans ‘has’ been a wonderful sister” –

    Yikes! Past tense completely unintentiona1…

    Sorry Nomans! 😉

  59. London says:

    Psalms, you may be right.
    I had written a bunch of stuff about what I’m thinking about “my” groups (I actually kinda split my time in 2 places) but decided that I don’t really want to hear the critics bash who we are and what we’re doing.

    Suffice it to say that last weekend I flew to another state to spend the weekend on a church retreat with a group of people I have NOTHING in common with. Not educational level, socio-economic levels, age, background, location, denominal background..NOTHING.
    I wish it would have lasted at least 3 more days…I have a deep affection for them I can not explain and would not trade.

  60. Nomans says:

    Thank you…
    Anytime you are in North Idaho!!!

  61. Jerry F says:

    I thought it was always pretty cool when you pop into another church environment or fellowship and you immedeatly feel a kinship–family really. You kinda hate to leave. I figure it’s a taste of heaven in a sort of way. Can’t wait to be there but hate to leave here also. What a dellema. On the the hand I’ve been in some places I couldn’t wait to get out of. The most unhappy spirit there. It’s good to know the differance.
