Televangelist's Marriage Can't be Saved

2/18/2010 8:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mega-minister Benny Hinn apparently couldn't apply his healing powers to his own marriage -- because the dude's wife just filed divorce papers claiming their marriage has given up the ghost.

Hinn claims the divorce filing came "without notice" and that he is "shocked" -- despite the fact that the high-profile religious couple has been separated since last month.

Hinn has come under scrutiny recently over suspicion he has false profits -- because the preacher has allegedly been raising money under the guise of a ministry simply to enrich himself.

Hinn is best known for his spiritual healings at events he calls "Miracle Crusades" -- but looks like he's powerless when it comes to saving his marriage.

"For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of marriage. So then, if she marries another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress, even though she marries another man."
Romans 7:2-3

Divorce + Remarriage = Adultery

"A wife is married to her husband as long as he lives."
1 Corinthians 7:39

"Look at the legalized adultery we call divorce. Men marry one wife after another and are still admitted into good society; and women do likewise. There are thousands of supposedly respectable men in American living with other men's wives, and thousands of supposedly respectable women living with other women's husbands." -- R. A. Torrey

Most of you are acting like everyone who's a minister is out to rape, steal, lie and destroy. Are you that thick? In what area of life aren't there violaters? When does an evil, conniving, decietful, manipulative, life-destroying, parasite ever have a conscience enough not to even go into 'ministry'?

You think it's only 'Holy' men that are taking advantage of the sick, dying and hopeless? Moreso, it's those who AREN'T 'holy men' that are taking advantage of these people.

I despise Benny Hinn. Todd Bentley. Even Joel Osteen doesn't get it. The two former are complete frauds that my Grandmother bought into and My Aunt (her daughter) STILL buys into. My Aunt won't talk to me to this day because I emailed her about how evil and fraudulent these men are. They suck people in and then CRUSH them when their 'healings' don't happen.

They're told that they don't believe enough or have enough faith. If only they believed in God more and SPOKE THE POWER of Jesus then they would have recieved the healing that is just sitting there waiting for them. Like a desert parched man laying on the ground dying and someone standing 6" from his fingertips with a gallon of water, saying..okay, stand up and get this gallon of water before you die...c'mon...stand up! It's insanity! It's crushing people's spirits. It's decieving them into believing that they're so LACKING that God won't bother coming the 6" to give them life saving water.

Just because some of you have the ability to sit at your computers and act all arrogant, act all superior to these evil men that you want to lump into a group that you despise ANYWAY, doesn't mean there aren't real people out there who are dying inside because of these evil LIARS. There is a special place in Hell for men like Benny Hinn and Todd Bentley.

Joel Osteen. That man's just going to have to answer for not being able to answer the basic questions. You Tube it! Joel Osteen can't make up his mind if he's a christian or not. Smilin' preacher as confused as the day is long. Lovely! And he's supposed to shepherd lost souls to Christ?

BAH!

I continue to stand behind and pray for Benny Hinn and Suzanne. I will not criticize him. He is an awesome man of God and she is a woman of God. Please pray and support them but do not put your mouth on a man/woman of God!

What no comments on this fraud? This guy flies around in a TBN owned Gulfstream IV and lives the life of a king while his viewers give up their weekly paychecks. If you want to find God, go to the tequila section of your local supermarket, it would be money better well spent!

What, a cleric committing fraud?
Every holyman should get a real job and do something useful and honest for a living, instead of forever exploiting the stupid.
