Benny Hinn says that Obama is not the Anti-Christ – but a good man, a Christian man

You can watch it on the foxnews video here:

Asked if Obama is the Anti-Christ, Benny Hinn responds:

“… It’s not Obama no.  It’s not Obama. I have been asked that question
many times, and the answer is no.  He is not, he is not the
anti-Christ.  He’s a good man, a Christian man.  I pray for him.  I pray
that God will give him success.  And I pray that he will support his
will.”

Everyone is entitled to their opinion I suppose, but to call a man who has done all he can to promote the causes of abortion (murder of unborn babies), and homosexual perversion not only a “Christian” but “a good man” is a bit of a stretch. I’d like to know where is the evidence that Obama believes in the same Person who said all those things in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Things like: “I am the Way, the Truth and the LIfe. No one comes to the Father but by Me.” (John 14:6). I mean, come on, what could be the motivation for this kind of statement? I agree with Benny Hinn that Obama is not the Antichrist, but I have no doubt that Obama is AN antichrist.

In other situations, Benny Hinn is not afraid of attacking people who soft pedal their public commitment to Christ.

Take a look at this clip, in which Benny Hinn accuses Ps Joel Osteen of being demon possessed because he won’t confess Christ openly.

How can Benny Hinn be so soft on Obama and so tough on Joel Osteen and on all “seeker sensitive” churches? I agree that Joel Osteen is a compromiser, but it looks like Benny Hinn is too. At the very least, Benny Hinn is careless with his words. Not good for someone with such a public profile.

  1. While I agree with the author of this article that Benny Hinn is mistaken to call Obama a christian and a good man I agree completely what Benny Hinn has to say about pastors, preachers, etc who distort the word of God. I also did not see anywhere in this 10 min and 41 sec clip that Benny referred to the name of Joel Osteen. And while I agree that it very well could be him he does not name him specifically. I think the reason why is because Joel’s father John Osteen who started the ministry (that Joel took over after John died) is still very well respected in charasmatic circles. John Osteen was a very different kind of preacher than Joel. John was not afraid to call a spade a spade. Joel on the other hand is a classisal seeker sensitive preacher.  And while Hinn is clearly attacking compromising pastors (of which we have many in the US today) he is not attacking “people who soft pedal their public commitment to Christ”. He is attacking MINISTERS who soft pedal their public commitment to Christ. There is a big difference here I believe. For one thing if you look at  Jesus in the Gospels he was only publicly angry with those who were leaders that were leading the people of God down the wrong path. Of course we know these as the pharisees. Jesus was hyper-critical of these guys calling them……SNAKES, VIPERS, Etc. I think a good argument could be made that these seeker sensitive ministers fit in the same mold as the pharisees of Jesus day.  These ministers today are more worried about what people think and feel than what the word of God says. They are more concerned with being praised by people than by God. I think this is a real problem the church has to overcome. Jesus sometimes preached in a way that was sometimes hard to bear and unpopular. At one point all his disciples turned away from Jesus and only the 12 disciples stayed with him. And Jesus said “if we would love him we would be persecuted”. And one more point….I don’t think I would go so far as to call Joel Osteen demon-possessed. I don’t think anything is accomplished here by that. I think Benny is wrong to say that. But everything else he said about these ministers I think is right on. And as far as Oprah…well she is an easy target. I think most christians know she has non-christian views. Unfortunately there are some christians that are easily swayed by Oprah. (And thank you for posting this article. It was very informative and thought provoking).

    who is barry hinn? Personally I think Benny Hinn is demon posessed. But that is just me.

  3. Anyone who supports what God has prohibited is not in obediance, in reverance and bearing fruit. They are thumbing their noses at the Creator of life and the universe. Barry also supports Homosexual marriage and misquotes the Bible. Hank Hanegraaff has pointed this out using what Barry has spoken.   May God change the blinded minds and hardended hearts to look upon Him.
