Benny Hinn is a world famous televangelist and perhaps one of the best known “prosperity gospel” advocates on television. Prosperity Gospel leaders teach their followers that belief in God will be rewarded with material wealth. Hinn’s Pentecostal broadcasts are seen and heard by millions daily.
Recently his wife of thirty years, Suzanne Hinn, filed for divorce from her husband, citing irreconcilable differences. The court filing did not bring up finances, but Hinn’s ministry is believed to be a multi-million dollar operation. The couple reportedly own three homes in Southern California.
Hinn’s finances have already been under scrutiny by Iowa Republican Senator Charles Grassley of the Senate Banking Committee. Grassley is looking into whether or not Hinn and other wealthy televangelists have complied with non-profit tax rules. Hinn maintains that he is in complete compliance with IRS regulations and that eighty eight percent of the money he raises goes to church causes.
The Pentecostal community has suffered a number of public divorces and moral failings by its public leaders in recent years, and Hinn’s followers are likely to look for a meaningful, public explanation for the couple’s divorce.
