Faith healer Benny Hinn

Faith healer Benny Hinn

When it comes to clinical medicine, religion and spiritual issues are cast aside in favor of pharmaceutical drugs and surgical procedures in order to help treat problems that an individual may be having. Some people choose to opt for alternative forms of medicine, however, and one of them that is of much debate is known as faith healing. Also referred to as spiritual healing, it is a type of alternative medicine that has plenty of critics and whose efficiency is debatable at best. One faith healer who is at the forefront of the supposed form of treatment is known as Benny Hinn. In this article, we'll examine Mr. Hinn and help to inform of you of some of the practices that he engages in when it comes to spiritual healing.

Benny Hinn is a televangelist that was raised within the Greek Orthodox Church. After attending a 'miracle service' conference with spiritual healer Kathryn Kuhlman early in his life, Benny Hinn began to involve himself in the practice of spiritual healing more and more. Founding the Orlando Christian Center in the year of 1983, Hinn gained immense popularity with his sermons drawing over ten thousand people per occasion. Employing a very theatrical and dramatic type of sermon, Hinn often claims to perform miracle cures on his television show. People go to Hinn in order to find relief from various different types of illnesses, and on his show he has claimed to have been of help in treating individuals that suffered from AIDS, cancer, Lou Gehrig's disease and a range of other problems. Things were going very well for Hinn indeed, and he found himself making more money than he could ever imagine.

Under the watchful eye of an investigative committee, however, Hinn and his church suffered a great setback when NBC's Dateline offered an expose on his church and the man himself. It was discovered that of all of the immense profits that Benny Hinn was taking in were being used mostly in order to live a lavish lifestyle. Very few of the funds that the church received were used for any sort of charitable offering. Also, the report focused on the purported faith-based healing that Hinn offered. A boy named William had turned to Hinn in order to treat his retinoskesis, which is a type of vision disease. As it turned out, the cure that Hinn claimed to offer young William was, in fact, a complete and utter fabrication. Hidden cameras were used in order to obtain proof that Hinn's cures were unfounded, and it was discovered that many of the disorders that Hinn claimed to cure died as a result of the incurable diseases that they were visiting Hinn for.

Men like Hinn work to prey on the sympathies of individuals who believe that the treatments that they are offering are actually the hand of God working to heal ills. There have been no cases of spiritual healing, however, that have been shown to be of merit. A man named James Randi has offered a one million dollar prize to anyone who is able to successfully demonstrate a type of miraculous healing, and the prize has gone unclaimed as of the writing of this article.
