Whoa, Benny Hinn Is Rejecting the Prosperity Gospel: ‘I’m Correcting My Theology’

Benny Hinn is one of the more controversial names in modern televangelism. Known for his massive “healing crusades,” he’s also been associated with what has become known as the prosperity gospel. Essentially, it’s the idea that God will reward monetary generosity (usually in the form of cash “gifts” to ministries) with monetary blessings and wealth.

It’s also been widely criticized, and many prosperity preachers have been accused of essentially preying on the desperation of the poor to enrich themselves.

However, in this clip Hinn says he’s changing his theology.
