Benny Hinn’s Divorce

From Yahoo news:

ORANGE, Calif. – The wife of televangelist Benny Hinn has filed for divorce in Southern California.

Suzanne Hinn filed the papers in Orange County Superior Court on Feb. 1, citing irreconcilable differences, after more than 30 years of marriage. The papers note the two separated on Jan. 26 and that Hinn has been living in Dana Point, a wealthy coastal community in southern Orange County.

Hinn is one of the best known advocates of the prosperity gospel, which teaches that Christians who are right with God will be rewarded with wealth and health in this lifetime.

When Benny Hinn was asked to comment about the divorce, here was the answer:

“I will not allow anything to slow me down or stop me”

So there is the answer – when you put MINISTRY above your wife and your family – this is how it ends up most of the time. Pastors and to the readers of this blog it is high time we assess the health of our marriages and our families.

Is our job, ministry more important than our family?

Is your job, passion, ministry really worth in exchange for your family?

1Tim. 3:2 So an elder must be a man whose life is above reproach. He must be faithful to his wife. He must exercise self-control, live wisely, and have a good reputation. He must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must be able to teach.
1Tim. 3:3 He must not be a heavy drinker or be violent. He must be gentle, not quarrelsome, and not love money.
1Tim. 3:4 He must manage his own family well, having children who respect and obey him.
1Tim. 3:5 For if a man cannot manage his own household, how can he take care of God’s church?

Take a time to pray for your pastors and their families. Also make sure to give your pastor ample time every week to spend with their families.
