Benny Hinn is a false prophet and a ferocious wolf. The Holy Bible says, ?Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep?s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.?The doctrines he preaches, his misquotations and misinterpretations of the Bible, his false prophecies, his alleged visions of angels and contact with thedead, and his emphasis on the prosperity of the Gospel and physical healings are controversial and exaggerated. Three centuries ago, he probably would have been burned as a heretic! The Chief minister has said that every one has the right to preach his religion. But, what the CM has forgotten is that the right to profess, practise andpropagate one?s faith is given ONLY to the citizens of this country and NOT to a foreigner like Benny Hinn.The massive build up for Benny Hinn?s Festival of Blessings, supported by vast sums of money from abroad, using expensive advertising techniques, claiming the participation of 30 lakh people in Bangalore has already created tension among the peace loving citizens. They justifiably apprehend violent eruptions in the City. I am filled with fears about the impending disaster the Festival will cause to communal peace and harmony in the City and elsewhere. I feel like a paralyticwatching a rising flood. The portents are clear and you keep trying to alert everyone you can reach to the coming danger. Few listen. And none act in time.
