Inside the Prosperity Gospel Movement with Costi Hinn
Nobody knows the inner workings of this false Christianity better than this year’s Equipping Conference speaker. Costi Hinn grew up in the movement that boasts his uncle, Benny Hinn, as one of its star proponents. He has attended the crusades, traveled with his uncle, and enjoyed the lavish lifestyle afforded by the false gospel. Then the Lord sovereignly saved him. Now Costi pastors a church plant in Arizona and has devoted his life to preaching the true gospel and seeking to reach those caught in the error that once blinded him.
The NAR/WOF trace their roots to three particular historical heroes or “generals” of the faith: Kathryn Kuhlman (faith healer), Oral Roberts (prosperity preacher), and Kenneth Hagin (crazy word of faith). This session is an overview of each of these historical figures and their contribution to the prosperity gospel/word of faith movement.
- The prosperity gospel distorts the biblical gospel.
- …insults God’s nature.
- …confuses the atonement.
- …demeans Jesus Christ.
- …twists Scripture.
- …is motivated by the love of money.
- …produces false converts.
- …overcomplicates faith
- …ruins Christianity’s witness.
