Pastor Benny Hinn and Paula White’s adultery?


Even Pastor’s don’t practice what they preach it seems. Evangelist Benny Hinn recently admitted at a crusade in 2010 in Oakland, Calif., to having a “friendship” with fellow minister Paula White while he’s still married after a tabloid pictured them holding hands in Rome on July 13. But the well-known healing minister says the relationship is over.

“A friendship did develop,” Hinn said of White in Oakland on July 30. “Hear this: No immorality whatsoever. These people out there are making it sound like we had an affair. That’s a lie.”

Hinn invited his daughters Natasha and Eleasha on stage in Oakland and asked the crowd to pray for him, his estranged wife, Suzanne, and their four children. He said he and his wife had problems in their marriage for years and “could no longer exist in the same house.”

Hinn’s wife, Suzanne, filed for divorce in February after the couple had been separated for years, but it has not been finalized.

Hinn aired segments from the Oakland crusade and made additional personal comments on his This Is Your Day program on TBN Aug. 5, the day after his 31st wedding anniversary. A ministry executive said the program will air on other networks this week, including on Daystar Friday.

Hinn told the crowd in Oakland that the Vatican made him a Patron of the Arts and invited him to visit Rome. He said patrons are asked to find donors to help maintain the Vatican’s art collections, and he wanted White to become a donor.

“I let her come with me to Rome so she can donate money,” Hinn said. “That was stupid on my part. And for that I do ask forgiveness.”

The National Enquirer published photos in its Aug. 2 issue of Hinn walking hand-in-hand with White in Rome. The article, which released July 23, claimed the two spent three nights in a five-star hotel Hinn booked under a false name.

Hinn said in Oakland that he and White found “common ground” after she appeared on This Is Your Day in late May. White and her ex-husband, Randy, went through a public divorce in 2007. She now leads the Tampa, Fla., church they founded, Without Walls International Church, and has her own national television show called Paula Today.

He said he and White were never alone in Rome, but claims he ended his friendship with her after the tabloid report was published. “I said, ‘Paula, we can’t even be friends right now.'”

Hinn admitted that he contributed to the demise of his marriage by putting ministry over his family. “I was so busy in the ministry, I was so caught up with the ministry, I forgot about my family,” Hinn said. “That’s probably what broke the whole thing up.”

He said he often preached that ministry comes first, acknowledging that he knew that teaching hurt his children. “You know what? It’s wrong,” he said of the teaching. “I’m here to admit I was wrong because the call of God first should touch the family. If you have no family, you can’t go on anyways.”

Hinn admitted he and his wife had “challenges” but said he didn’t expect her to end the marriage.

“We had troubles for a long time, and I would ask her often, ‘Would you ever divorce me?'” Hinn said. “She said, ‘Never because I fear God too much.’ She said, ‘My covenant is with God, not you.’ And I guess she could no longer handle it. One day she did it to my shock.”

Hinn said it’s painful to talk about his marital problems, noting that he and his wife were separated long before the divorce filing.

“We’ve had to be very quiet to protect the ministry, the work of the Lord,” he said. “But sadly when you are a public person, everything you do becomes public.” “I don’t care how strong you are,” Hinn added. “I don’t care if the anointing of God is mighty on you. Nobody wants to be alone. I don’t care who you are. I am a human being just like you.”Hinn said he is “still focused on the Lord’s work,” adding, “I’m going to go on serving Jesus with all my being, and whatever the future holds, that’s His business.”

  1. GOD bless Benny Hinn amd Paula White. The media is always trying to perpetuate a smear campaign but true followers and believers in Christ know that we are to pray for our brothers and sisters who are ministers of the Gospel. Interceding for them constantly in prayer that they would continually be covered from the arrows of wickedness taht the enemy would use to damage their ministries or lives. Seek the truth and ask GOD for wisdom. Both of these ministers have touched my life through their seperate programs on TBN and other Networks and I just wish them both the best and pray that GOD would continue to use them mightily.

    • No matter whether you are a pastor or a doctor, adultery is against the core of trust on which a marriage is based. When you are an example to many, then you should accept the fact that the public will scrutinize your actions. I have no doubt that these people may have touched your life. As they say practice what you preach and walk the talk.

  2. family is so important,as ministers we need to handle the issues of our homes with spiritual maturity and carefulness. Remember the devils desire is to destroy our ministry through destroying our family.But as long as Hinn has admitted his wrong lets keep praying for him and other top ministers it could be any bodies turn tomorrow.

    • Yes sir. The “devil” wants to destroy your “ministries” and I’m fully in support of your “ministries” getting completely destroyed. Its people like Benny Hinn and the rest who manipulate people to part with their money so they can settle down in their multi-million dollar cushions. I hope they’re all destroyed so people who really care about humanity can set up better organizations to help the millions of suffering children in third world countries. What is Benny Hinn doing with his money? Buying private Jets? What did he give for relief?? $100,000? When he spends millions on his private Jet? This article proves that he’s an adulterer as well. The christian God doesn’t exist to the fraudulent practices of Benny Hinn and the rest can never be judged. But I certainly hope, that someday…people like him are given the right punishment here…on Earth
