While I was reminding myself why I don’t watch much daytime TV (the absolute dearth of shows is amazing, depite having access to some 75 channels), I saw something that I couldn’t help but have a little chuckle at.
Here, sitting in a studio with his trademark pinstripe suit with his logo on it, is Benny Hinn asking for his
followers partners to donate above and beyond their regular donations as his ministry is supposedly running a $2 million defecit for the year. I know that most churches are run like businesses, but for the most part, they usually can figure out ways to save money by doing things differently, and you wouldn’t see an annual defecit of more than a couple of thousand dollars.
I guess things are different when your main congregation huddle around tv sets to hear you speak, or speak and
beg politely ask for money.
