After more than 30 years of marriage, faith healer Benny Hinn may be heading to divorce court.
Benny Hinn Ministries on Thursday confirmed that his wife, Suzanne Hinn, filed a petition for divorce in Orange County Superior Court on 1st of February. She cited irreconcilable differences.
Though the couple separated on Jan. 26th, according to court papers, the organization released a statement expressing shock.
“Pastor Benny Hinn and his immediate family were shocked and saddened to learn of this news without any previous notice,” said Don Price, longtime senior advisor to Benny Hinn Ministries. “Although Pastor Hinn has faithfully endeavored to bring healing to their relationship, those efforts failed and were met with the petition for divorce that was filed without notice».
Just months before the petition, world renowned and controversial preacher Benny Hinn had come out to the public to answer his critics for the first time.
For years, Hinn has been a subject of scrutiny by the media and recently the government for the miraculous healings he claims to perform and the lavish lifestyle he leads. He travels to cities across the globe conducting “miracle crusades” and services. Reports from each event indicate that dozens are miraculously healed from a physical ailment, though Hinn admitted to ABC News recently that he doesn’t have medical verification of the healings.
Most Christians have struggles in their marriage, and some Christians will even be forced to leave their non-believing spouses.
A divorce is not the worst that can happen to a preacher man, but that He forfeits his soul. The easiest way to destruction is to become a lover of Money. We are not suppose to preach the gospel as a tool to gain fame or financial wealth.
I have to be honest, and tell brother Benny and his students, that this is exactly what they have done. The irony is that Benny Hinn`s wife will get at least half of the wealth he has stored up on Earth.
