Preaching out of Warfare will cause Distortions

Benny Hinn contemporaneous with the unfolding scandal of a Roman Tryst with Paula White preached in Sweden at a Word and Faith Conference hosted by Ulf Eckman. Hinn preached and used his platform to somehow twist the word to seem to justify himself. It took some gnostic twists.

I have advised that a person in the middle of warfare like a lawsuit, divorce, failure and even great pain physically might be better in service to wait until the full victory comes before mounting the platform. Not that there can't be testimonies of peace in the storm, but for the most part the warfare will shape every message. It will lack true edification.

I wanted to keep this whole thing on the back burner but now that the story is out there, I will have a hard time contriving how Hinn and White survive this mess. They won't.

You can read it here.
We must not be taken unawares.

I spent the last weekend hearing Pastor Abe Huber talk about the need to have a person in every SR leaders life who can hear that leader vomit up all the filth they are dealing with, pray for them and help them live in victory. EVERY SR LEADER.

Billy Graham needs one such and had it in Grady Nutt.

The verse from 1 Corinthians 5:12 is pretty clear:
It isn't my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your responsibility to judge those inside the church who are sinning.
The bar is raised. Things are going to get rough if you are a SR leader in the Church and you don't fear God. To play fast and loose with the glory of God is Strange Fire. It will get you killed.

Or it will kill off your ministry or church. Lord let your glory come and let die those who mock you.
