Who Said That?

question mark.jpgWho said that?

"But here's first what I see for Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). You're going to have people raised from the dead watching this network. You're going to have people raised from the dead watching TBN.  Programs -- just plain programs -- programs that haven't done much when it comes to supernatural manifestations -- teaching programs!"

Read the quote carefully and after you stop laughing, leave your guesses in the comments section below!  No cheating!

I believe it was Benny Hinn.

Or was it Benny Hinn that said Jesus was 9 feet tall??? I'm not sure now. I can't keep all these prophecies straight.

I'll go with Mr. Hinn. Anyone who says Jesus was 9 feet tall, there are 9 persons in the Trinity and Adam and Eve could fly, had to say something like this.

Wow, raised from the dead to watch TBN, what a cruel joke that would be. Could you imagine being raised from the dead and Jan Crouch is staring at you on the TV screen? Remind me to be buried with a cyanide pill at my side in case this happens. This sounds more like a Farside cartoon or a Monty Python sketch.

Don't you kinda have to be alive to be able to watch the program in the first place?

I would be ashamed if I did know who said it.

I have to go with Hinn also. IIRC Hinn thought people would rise up out of thier coffins if you wheeled them in front of the TV while he was preaching.

Well, so many on that network have predicted similar things, but I will say Benny Hinn. Seems to obvious...but like I said, it could be anyone that has ever been on TBN.

But don't expect it to happen in America...

Rodney Howard Brown. It sounds like his type of prophecy. Personally, I don't make a practice of watching TBN with dead people (or live people or by myself)!

I know that Benny Hinn once predicted that people would be raised from the dead at his events (and that Jesus Himself would appear) I am going to go out on a limb (yeah right) and say it was Hinn.

ps. I don't know about 9 feet tall, but Ken Copeland said that God has a 9 inch span (from the tip of the little finger to the tip of the thumb), that he is about 6'2", and weighs about 200 lbs. It's so nice to know that God is no more in stature than me!
I witnessed the incredulous claim (in '99 I think?) Benny Hinnon explained: "thousands" of people; loved ones, would not need funerals because their (dead) hands would be placed on the TV set and they'd come back to life.

Later it was reported: a couple whose baby had died, put the child in an ice chest and drove umpteen miles to a Hinn rally in hopes of a miracle.

Still this goofball is running around in business - which speaks volumes about the state of Evangelicalism today.

Benny Hinn, for sure! Sounds like him through and through.

It could be brother R.W. Shambaugh

I guess it goes without saying that he doesn't mean raised from the dead spiritually.... Why would anyone want that when you could be REALLY raised from the dead? Any by Benny Hinn!
March 5, 2007 | Unregistered CommenterMark
Benny Hinn.

Or maybe Jan Crouch. Could be anyone on that ridiculous show..But most likely Benny Hinn.
March 6, 2007 | Unregistered CommenterSusan Bertalotto
How long do the dead have to watch? And if they don't come to life does that mean they didn't have enough faith?

My guess is Benny Hill. The dead will come to life and be in permanent fast forward. (you dig?)

it really doesn't matter who said it, i think. christian TV is some of the best entertainment going.

the other night i saw paula white on a low-brow talk show. she apparently is not only a TBN beg-and-guilt-a-thon cheerleader; she is also a life coach to a super model. money is so hard to resist.

Benny Hinn
March 6, 2007 | Unregistered CommenterPeter
Benny "Mr. Off the Wall" Hinn.

Or any of his ilk.

Does it really matter?

What's really pathetic is not just that guys like this exist, but that they have followings of thousands.

What an argument for total depravity. The natural man has zilcho ability to believe (Jn. 6:44) or to obey (Rom. 8:7,8) or to even understand spiritual truth (I Cor. 2:14). And when there's a lack of such understanding, what utterly oddball garbage people are willing to swallow.
