Thousands attend Benny Hinn crusade

Benny Hinn's time for salvation-2


Thousands of people “hungry” for healing, salvation and spiritual deliverance of some kind, filled the Wildey Gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex last night to feed from the ministry of visiting American televangelist Benny Hinn during the opening of his two-day crusade.

The event, which is organised by the recently-established National Alliance of Churches & Christian Organisations of Barbados in partnership with Benny Hinn Ministries, saw hundreds answering Hinn’s calls to receive salvation, healing and spiritual deliverance.

People in wheelchairs, those with walking aides and others suffering from various other ailments came expecting to have their needs met.

Healing for this partially blind man.
Healing for this partially blind man.

It is not clear how many did, but all those wheelchair-bound persons, from observation, left in the same in the same wheel chairs in which they arrived.

One man was brought to Hinn on the platform who, one of the preacher’s helpers reported, suffered from heart problems, that had been healed, while another who was partially blind, could see.

Hinn did advise the man with heart problems to see his doctor to confirm his healing. The crusade ends this evening.

      Could not agree with you more. It has made a mockery of the clerics in this country,especially those who imported Benny. By the way, did he have a work permit?

    Lol, interesting- So a partially blind man was healed, and also a man with heart problems- The guy with heart problems was told to confirm with his doctor that he was healed?

    Ok, i am accustom to seeing names printed, pictures posted, etc….I will give the benefit of the doubt and leave it as a developing story, but hinn has never healed anyone before- see below

    Yes, people believe it, and they are called christians. You want to know when best to get someone to believe you are operating through a god (s) ? Attack when they are the end of their road- when all else seems to fail.

    This is the Barbados i live in- where the christians denounce dub artistes, car shows, etc, but allow a man to visit their island, under the false pretense of being a faith healer- then they turn around and use our dub shows and car events as examples of why spending 300,000 on hinn wasn’t a big deal- Well, a dub show and car show are both entertainment packages, so i guess you are saying benny Finn is an entertainer as well.

    It wasn’t my money that was spent, but it does bother me how easy it is for our local churches and people to be tricked into believing a lie.

    Food for thought- Very deep thought.

      Nicole Jones which ministry in B’dos this money is for ? What a way to make money, by exploiting a bewitch people ! The Most High is going to deal with these fake people that are deceiving the elect. If he was a local preacher, that was holding a pray and healing service here. I would argue that Barbadians would not have turn out in numbers. The first thing they would say, ” Don’t mind he, he just looking for money. An Edomite freak that you don’t know one thing about can get a very good attendance. Barbadians never cease to amaze me. What a thing ! O foolish Galatians, who have bewitch you ?

    hahahahah…..I like the part in the article that read “People in wheelchairs, those with walking aides and others suffering from various other ailments came expecting to have their needs met.
    It is not clear how many did, but all those wheelchair-bound persons, from observation, left in the same in the same wheel chairs in which they arrived. ” (yep, that about sums it up…..( I hope wanna save some for the rent and the mortgage and wanna children school books…..)

    As I’m sure that the congregation / asembly/ coalition of the faithfull/ folks-wid-money-burnin-dey-pocket/ Church of The Gullible, were NOT drawn from the same church, (or even the same denomination) …it looks very much like the stark truth: something is missing in our current Christian Community here…something real dread in the state of Denmark…namely the churches from whence they came…need to “up their game”.
    Or perhaps, we now a have a new dynamic, which politicians and Peter Wickham needs to “explore”, lest it opens-up a new opportunity for “connecting” to a new cadre of citizen-voters: The “New Ultra-Faithfull”…who will part with their last cent (sorry, five-cent)…on the Great Altar of Gullibility.
    Me? Nope, I didn’t go. I was curious; but was shame. Instead, I sent a friend, and I got a DVD; two books; and I am now the proud owner of the Brooklyn Bridge…and I got a “paper” to prove it too.
    On the OTHER hand, it also suggests (Peter, include a suitable question in your survey)…that all of the statistics, lies, and damned lies about the economy; plus Moody Mumblings; Plus Standard Equations; …all are Ananci-Stories.…and Bajans STILL GOT MONEY TO BURN.

    Look out for the inevitable sequel, this time organised by a (nameless/faceless) political party, with the door-prize being a Gold-Printed Certificate of your actual room-number in Heaven (did I say ‘room”? Sorry, make that , “Suite”), signed by Him-he-self. Last Days, Lord.

    If this wolf in sheep’s clothing really wanted to heal people, he could have just donated 350k to the hospital and all the charities that look after poor people in need. Instead he’s come here and the only thing healed is his bank account. Why are people so open to foolishness? Smh and KMT.

  21. jr smith June 23, 2014 at 8:16 am

    This is a challenge for all those fools who claim healing, give the Today reporters your names , ailments before and after healing your claims. just to convince us all.
    I am hoping one of the documentary reporters from london ,media give us a hour long documentary on how wealthy these pastors have become and who they were before hand.
    The organization of churches, who paid for this visit, should now be transparent, be honest no corruption show us where this money came from and who contributed. e
    This issue of these super rich pastors seems to plague the USA, Africa and the Caribbean, this needs to be stop.
    The Barbados government needs now to consider taxing these churches making sure they registered and audited annually and if they don’t close them they are ripping off bajans as well.
    We supposed to be so educated and allowing silly people to lead
    bajans like sheep to the slaughter.

    With social media available one would think that people would do their research and know that this is a business. These people travel with a production team like a circus. Do you personally know these people that were healed???? These people carry ear pieces and do what they are told. I bet these same people will disappear when Benny Hinn leaves the island.
