Renowned televangelist, Benny Hinn.
*The gospel is not for sale, blessings of God are not for sale
*Miracles are not for sale, prosperity is not for sale

In what appears to be a stunning turnaround, televangelist and prosperity gospel proponent Benny Hinn admits his past teachings were “grieving the Holy Spirit.”

On Facebook Live Monday, the preacher told an audience: “I’m sorry to say that prosperity has gone a little crazy, and I’m correcting my own theology.”

According to ChurchLeaders, an online Christian website, Hinn was quoted as saying that he’s “been sick for a while” and now sees the Bible differently than he did 20 years ago.

Hear him: “The gospel is not for sale, blessings of God are not for sale, miracles are not for sale, prosperity is not for sale.” Hinn has previously taken steps to distance himself from the prosperity gospel, however, so some of his critics remain skeptical.

“Giving has become such a gimmick.”

During “Miracle Crusades” that are broadcast on his This Is Your Day program, the charismatic preacher requests “seed money,” promising donors wealth, health, and other blessings. Hinn, 66, once asked followers for $2.5 million to cover ministry debt.

Meanwhile, he lived what his nephew, Costi Hinn, describes as a greedy, lavish lifestyle. But on Monday, Benny Hinn was again quoted as saying, “For the first time in my life”—that “it’s an offense to the Holy Spirit to place a price on the Gospel.” He added, “I’m done with it…and frankly, I don’t care what people think about me anymore.”

Hinn says people who invite him to telethons “will not like me anymore” because he’s going to “rebuke them.” He said, “If you are not giving because you love Jesus, don’t bother giving. I think giving has become such a gimmick. It’s making me sick to my stomach.”
