Benny Hinn and The Fruit of True Repentance

What is true repentance? In the Bible, a tax collector named Zacchaeus encountered Christ and immediately repented for stealing and lying. What does repentance look like in the lives of believers today? It should look no different than in Zacchaeus’ life!

When prosperity preacher Benny Hinn says he repents, how do we know if it’s the real deal? Michelle and Amy dig into Scripture to look at what real repentance is and is not. Note that our program today is not so much about Benny Hinn, but about how to discern true repentance from something else. However the news does give us a good springboard into this conversation.

    I know that in my life as a Christian, when I have sinned, not only am I remorseful for sinning against a holy God, but my heart has also been grieved deeply that I was a stumbling block to those around me. I’ve had to ask forgiveness of those that my sin was a stumbling block to. Repent and then go and sin no more. I am so thankful that when we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us.

    Just a little note, Mr. Hinn didn’t say „don’t give money to this ministry”. What I understood was that he advised people to change the motivation of their giving. “Don’t give money because you want more money in exchange, give because you Love Jesus.” So, if you Love Jesus, keep giving me money.
    That doesn’t sound like repentance of his old practice.

      That’s correct, Tina, and I suspect we will see that prove out over time.
