More on Benny Hinn

His Statement of faith does not seem to support the Triune nature of God: read it for yourself:
We believe the one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed "I AM" and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association, i.e., Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.


Something is missing. What does "revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association, i.e., Father, Son, and Holy Ghost" really mean? My guess is that the false prophet who once told us there was "nine of 'em" in reference to the Trinity wants to fit in with United Pentecostal theology of modalism (updated to "Jesus only")- a God who does not fit a Triune description.

I intend to address this in the future. Some might be surprised at the popular "preachers" who espouse this today. And the defenders often say that "doctrine" is unimportant. Paul disagreed:
  • "Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers." (I Timothy 4.16 NIV)
  • "For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear." (II Timothy 4.3 NIV)
  • "He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it." (Titus 1.9 NIV)
