Suzanne Hinn ch-ch-ch-changes

There is an old saying that truth is stranger than fiction.

The televangelist and entertainment world has been abuzz with news that Benny and Suzanne Hinn were divorcing.

From a biography site of Benny Hinn.

This was what Mrs. Hinn looked like in the now infamous ‘holy ghost enema’ rant. It’s a screen capture off the video, which became infamous when it was aired on VH1 Web Junk 20 show.  The term is used by pentecostals to refer to awakening a dead church and was entered into the urban dictionary in 2006.  She kicked off her shoes, called people butt kissers and  hit the floor about 2 minutes later.

Mrs. Hinn looks like a middle aged mother of four, which is what she is. At this stage of her life, she was raising the kids while Benny was blowing other honeys over.

In 2009 Mrs. Hinn spoke at a meeting called The Esther Gathering, she had lost some weight and changed her hair colour.

This  is probably  from The Esther Conference in 2009, since it was advertised she was going to be a speaker that year.

This is an advertisement video for The Esther Conference 2010. A few hours ago, this comment was posted. Reasonable, given news a marriage of 30 years was ending. The divorce filing wasn’t news to close associates of the Hinns.

Dear friends, In light of the most recent event, Suzanne and Angela have both agreed that Suzanne should take some time for rest and healing with her family. At this time, Suzanne will not be speaking at this year 2010 ” Esther Gathering Women’s Conference” in Guyana. We do apologise for any inconvenience. Please continue to pray and agape love the Hinn family in this time of challenge. In His Love, Pepe & Angela Ramnath MCCI

This is from a ministry site, currently undated.

This is from a video of This is Your Day (Benny Hinn TBN show) posted 9 months ago on YouTube, spanish edition.

Part of the reason I put this up is because when I took a look at a ministry site called Purifying Fire International, I thought the picture was a stock photo.

The site was registered by LeeAnn Pendergrass in February 2008.

Ms. Pendergrass is Mrs. Hinns long time assistant and is identified next to Mrs. Hinn in the 2009 Esther Conference video.
The Hinns started their Orlando Church (Orlando Christian Centre) in 1983. Hinn began broadcasting his crusades in 1989.

They left Orlando in 1999 and moved the headquarters to Texas and settled in California where the tv studio is.

Suzanne Hinn’s parents,  Roy and Pauline Hathern married in 1951. Her father was a pentecostal minister and Suzanne is a twin. Her brother was murdered in 1990.  Benny and Suzanne married in 1979.  Benny Hinn is 57, they have three daughters, a son and a couple of grandchildren.

    Snapshots of the prosperity gospel is right – it’s all about celebrity status, entertainment and personal ambition, and it just makes me feel so ashamed and remorseful to think this is what we have been “preaching to the nations” the past couple of decades. God forgive us.

  2. Therese says:

    …I’m repenting in ‘sackcloth and ashes’ today for having ever believed in and supported Benny Hinn’s ministry in past years…I feel I owe the whole world an apology as well as my heavenly Father. O Lord where is your city set on a hill? We are supposed to show the world what YOU are like, and instead all we have done is to show off and parade our own rotten flesh before the whole world!

  3. randy says:

    Matthew 7:5
    You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother’s eye.

    Just as we expect “leadership” in churches,
    to show accountability, transparency,
    we should also expect “leadership” on websites,
    to show accountability, transparency.

    If enough of us ‘demand’ this, hopefully the
    website’s owners will voluntarily submit
    names, IP’s to an independent 3rd party,
    such as Rick Hebert,
    who can then screen people using multiple
    identities. Also, ‘cloaking’ IP’s is not allowed.

    This would prevent ‘manipulation’ of sites,
    increase credibility, and put to rest dissension.

    Currently, there is no accountability whatsoever.
    Any end time or prophetic site can say whatever
    they want with no accountability. Change is needed. Voice your comment in favor of leader
    accountability to each blog you visit, today!

    Theres hope for me yet then!.

    I never close the door on possibilities, nor deny the probabilities because you just never know what you may be called upon to be or do.

    However, blond is not where I’m at right now, brunette wouldn’ go with my wardrobe, black would be rather harsh and so ‘for now’ I’ll just be who I am in where I am for what I am.

    I have learn’t that the Lord goes with the budget and that no matter what the budget he will always ‘find you something to wear’. Literally.

    I suppose in the ‘jesus business of ‘looking good feeling good’ thats how you end up being led.

    Thank the Lord I’m not famous I would’nt be able to keep up!

  5. Bene D says:

    I’ve had to repent of good intentions and ignorance. If I was going to make a list of bad Christians I’d have to put myself at #1.

    That having been said, irreconcilable differences is a very polite euphemism for ugly things.

    There is a story about Hinn that has surfaced, accusations I am not prepared to repeat or link to because it is tied into social and political problems that are flashpoints right now. The claims have not been substantiated, they may be opportunistic, fear based and gossip. Or not.

    We are told in scripture to be wise, to speak up and to walk away and not harm those who are vulnerable.

    I don’t know what people see when they look at the series of pics of Mrs. Hinn. I see a wife, a woman raised in a home of overbearing expectations who jumped from a frying pan into a fire. I see brokeness, desperateness. I see someone who should never been in anyone’s pulpit, and someone who needs therapy, not plastic surgery.

    Anyone foolish enough to believe the Benny Hinn marketing spin that he is surprised and sorry there isn’t spousal reconciliation needs to get a grip on facts. If anyone is foolish enough to think Benny would have risked his cash flow to file for divorce first is a deluding themselves.

  6. Therese says:

    Suzanne’s situation is driving home to me like I haven’t seen quite so clearly before, the kind of fruit this type of marketed, mass media, slickly packaged, westernized Christianity brings forth and then perpetuates. Know what you mean Bene about “expectations” and the human cost of all that – I’m sure she must be struggling with issues, and who wouldn’t be in that environment? This is what we see in the commercial, materialistic world of celebrities and wealthy socialites and we all have seen and read about the shipwrecked lives there, and where it has influenced our society in general – it’s the opposite of what Christianity is meant to be. Wouldnt’ be surprised at all if we haven’t heard the whole story yet. I agree with hopesome – not many could “keep up” with all that fame and money – for a believer, it’s a kind of life fraught with temptations and ‘opportunity’!

  7. randy says:

    lol. I’ve read those ridiculous false accusations.

    They are a shame to those who wrote them.

    What a sad state of affairs, things are in.

    How glad I am to stick to the Word of God, daily.
    Praying, helping people, being of use.
    Feels good in the heart.

  8. Therese says:

    I find it doesn’t interest me what the men in the house are doing nearly as much as what God is doing with His house in these days. Men are doing what men have always done – law of the jungle – no surprises or mystery there. But what the King of these kings is doing, now that’s worth watching!

    And after the fleshly King Saul was removed from the throne over God’s people, came a humble desert shepherd warrior named David.

  9. Dale says:

    Pray for an awakening in America. Hinn is but 1 of 5,000 to
    10,000 popular leaders who compromise truth today.
    Pat Robertson has compromised truth with Catholicism
    for how long? And is tolerated by wicked Evangelicals and
    their so-called leaders. 2 Timothy 4:1-4 The religious system
    has been gathered after man’s lusts.

    Randy appears to be a follower of Hinn and ignores the deception
    Hinn promotes. Even though many Christian apologists point
    it out.

  10. Tom says:

    Just once I’d like to see Christian responses that are just that…CHRISTIAN. None of you know anything about what this woman has lived through. Try to wrap your little minds around the fact that it’s between her, her husband, and GOD. It’s NONE of our business. There, but for the grace of God…goes any one of us. Nobody cares about your own personal little 3 point Bible lessons (meant solely to prove yourselves right as a rule…isn’t that the main reason for reading it these days???), or how guilty you feel for having supported them at one time. Please. You thought you were doing a good thing. You’re sorry for that?
    You wanna do something for God? PRAY for your leaders…your neighbors…your family. Then put your prayers into action. DO the things you know are right. HELP people where they need help. Love the unlovely. And stop being so offended at perceived failure. Are things all of a sudden too out of control for God? Perhaps they are, since we’re all so willing and anxious to sit in HIS seat.

  11. Hopesome says:


    Love the unlovely! We are doing

    Benny Hinn and co; have had a great deal of influence over peoples lives over the years and ‘have ‘led them to believe’ much about (his) Jesus. He gave the impression he was the incarnate, as many do it seems and now we find that really he’s just human and we feel rather let down.

  12. Truetruth4ever says:

    How long can one go on in lies and deception?
    It will take its toll.
    Is Christianity modeled after the likes of Benny Hinn the truth or Christ-like?
    Boastings about jet-set lifestyles, mansions, big cars are rationalised (or rational lies).

    Now comes “divorce” over irreconcilable differences.
    This is certainly and conclusively not the true Christian principle.
    Both Suzanne and Benny are demonstrating the lies they have been living in all these years.
    Where are their marriage VOWS made before God and man. Why breach these when they have said “I Do” before God and man.
    God is reconciling the world to Himself in spite of ALL irreconcilable differences between man and Himself.

    If Christian marriage is parallel to Christ’s love for the loveless church, then Benny and Suzanne Hinn have to re-look at Eph.5:21-33, otherwise they are just like any unbeliever, and are deceivers of even themselves.
    Divorce will disqualify them from ministry.
    Like a Church divorced from Christ will be a Christless Church.
    It will be just a cult following a man.

    Then again how much of the truth are in them (Benny and Suzanne)if they serve mammon and not God of the Bible?
    What price will they give to adhere to the truth of the Bible?
    Are they willing to return all the money they have extracted and cheated from the desperate people who turned to them for help but were deceived?

    Yves Brault’s book “Behind The Scenes: The True Face of the Fake Faith Healers” published since 1997 is a MUST READ to know what was/is Behind The Scenes of Benny Hinn, Morris Cerullo, Raymond Mooi and many more such false men of God that the foolish hold as charismatic and anointed “leaders”.
    Truly these are just Bastards as spoken of in Heb.12:8 (KJV). Yes, Bastards and Wolves in Sheep’s clothing as spoken of by Jesus.

    Time for idols of men to be cut down. God who did not let Pharaoh off on in his hardness of heart will not spare any of these false men of God. There is a time of reckoning. As sure as the sun will rise there will be a judgement coming.

    No need to be emotional about this matter of Suzanne divorcing Benny. The cries of all who have complained may not be heeded by Benny but God hears and he will judge Benny Hinn. Can Benny Hinn cross his “Red Sea” that divorces God’s People from the oppressors?
    The “Miracle” of the parting of the Red Sea is a great divorce of Pharaoh and God’s people. If the defenders of Benny still fail to see, and they will, they too shall all perish like him. There is also a Mt. Carmel for such as these. 1Kings 18:20.

    Ahab and Jezebel, Ananias and Sapphira are just some husband and wife teams that perish in God’s judgement.
    NOW SHOWING: Benny and Suzanne.

    History lessons are simply ignored or forgotten by arrogant and self promoting men who will not hesitate to re-crucify Jesus.

    This DIVORCE of Suzanne and Benny Hinn goes to just conclusively demonstrate what a FALSE man of God as Benny has been.

    Benny and Suzanne may not have commited any adultery as announced by Benny himself, BUT their SPIRITUAL ADULTERY is without doubt. Benny’s adulterated Ministery has many bastards consequently and God will separate the goats from the sheep, and the wheat from the tares…

  13. all I can say is that, all of you who are criticizing benny hinn, yet you dont know anything that happened in their lives with Suzzane had better shut up, and worry about your own lives, what Benny Hinn had done in his ministry and the amount of sacrifices they made with Suzzane some of you it would take you a million life times to do. No-one is perfect ladies and gentlman, when are we going to accept our human freighlity, whats important is do the best we know how in this life. but we shall all answer to God one day, and not to one another.

  14. kiki says:

    if we all claim to be christians, lets not cast aspersions. let us leave by Jesus’s example, when the adulterous woman was brought to him, he said him that has no sin should throw the first stone. behold when he looked up he did not see any one.

    what are we talking about. benny hinn is a man of God, he has touched lives. we should not be divided as christians. remember the bible said touch not my annointed and do my prophet no harm and some people are passing judgement on a man of God. its amazing. every body has his trying times. and the bible said he will not allow any temptation that is too much for us.

    i think what the Hinns need is our prayers as one family that are bought by the blood of Jesus. if we use this energy to publisize Jesus i think the whole world will be saved.

  15. I do want to make a comment about all this, I know very little about all that is taking place, One thing I do know is what the word of God says, Jesus said I come not to bring peace but rather a sword, a house will be divided two against three and mother against daughter in law and daughter against mother and so forth. and again we must be willing to forsake all for the Lord Jesus, we are living in the last days and people will be tried as never before. I myself stand with the word of God, and I do know that Benny Hinn is standing for Jesus and against this new age movement and Oprah and many others and the devil is mad and if he cannot get brother Hinn he will get after his family. we must stand with the word of God and and stand with those who are fighting the battle for God.

  16. is the link to my report on the End Time Handmaidens and Servants CULT that Suzanne Hinn is a member of. Benny Hinn has spoken at this CULT’s meetings, and there is a photo of him with the CULT’s leader, Gwen Shaw, on the site.

    Divorce is rampant within this CULT that one joins by fasting 21 days on liquids – which accounts for Suzanne Hinn’s 100 pound weight loss several years ago.

    (Also on the site is an e-mail sent out by the CULT’s headquarters on Sept. 4, 2009, in which it is stated that the leader, Gwen Shaw, talked to her husband, Jim Shaw, on her 84th birthday, on Oct. 1, 2008. That wouldn’t be unusual except for one fact: Jim Shaw DIED on March 5, 2007!!!)

  17. lynn says:

    Suzanne got tired of Benny wearing those star treck suits and shirts
    she looks great.

  18. laws632 says:

    Whenever I read or hear about the MISQUOTING of Jesus and the woman taken in adultery, she was NOT innocent, but the Pharisees and scribes had failed to follow the Word of God – this is the mysterious message Jesus wrote in the dirt – the COMMANDS which He as the pre-incarnate Christ had given to Moses. The law stated that BOTH adulterers were to be killed as an example and warning to the rest, that GOD hates adultery and fornication/sodomy. The scribes were blatant in their dishonouring of the legalities prescibed by God. This is why Jesus did not condemn her, she was in an illegal angaroo court lynching. He said “Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more” Jn 8:11.

    Please do not think God ever changes, Hebrews 13:4 is in effect forever: “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled, but the sexually immoral and adulterers God will judge.”

    God will be just as Rev. 21:8 states: black and white/right or wrong/ good or bad. Polemical and absolute.

    Jesus did not condemn her TO DEATH because she was technically – according to the Law – free to go. But with a warning: “Don’t do it again or else.”

    He told another, in John 5, that he better stop sinning, “Behold, you are made whole. Sin no more lest a worse thing come to you.”

    NB the man had been in a helpless state for 38 years prior to. A “worse thing”? I guess Jesus meant Hell aka Mark 9/Luke 16.

  19. Angelrose says:

    Take your eyes off the people in the church and turn them to Jesus. People are human and will let us down if put our faith in them. We are human and should not expect any better of anyone else than we do of ourselves.

    Benny Hinn is a busy man…traveling and speaking all around the world. If she was NOT an active part of his ministry which I think is the case, she was pretty much on her own. I sense she may have been left alone for long periods of time without a spirtual pillar in her life.

    This can do real damage to any relationship…Christian or not.

    Only God knows what happened and it should matter only to God…not to anyone else.

  20. Touchedlady says:

    Let us not turn into the ‘Pharisees’ of our time. Stop taking advantage of the Hinn’s PAIN to make yourself look more righteous! Whatever you gave in support of Benny Hinn Ministries, you gave in faith to Jesus and that goes into your account in heaven! Are you sorry about that?!!!
    Why? even Jesus was persecuted and accused of being false by the very people He helped and preached to and healed! Not to mention died to save!
    I have personally been touched by this man’s ministry and my life has never been the same since! Who are you to judge this man or his family and to write him off just because he does not meet your ‘criteria’ of righteousness!!!?
    Judge not, that you may not be judged! Have mercy and pray for them instead.

  21. Lui DeFranco says:

    “Judge not and you will not be judge!” is right!
    If you are God’s people- we should stop gossiping and pray for them instead.
    And pray also that we will not fall into this kind of temptation. Our days are still ahead of us. It is not how we started- its how we finish! Our God is a God of reconciliation. There is nothing that He can not fix! Just be careful and make sure that when we try to get that sprint out of our neighbor’s eyes that we don’t have a log on ours. We should judge ourselves first before anything. Make sure our garment is clean and white and make sure our lamp is burning with enough oil. All we can do is pray for others!

  22. Bene D says:


    What is the gossip? We have Hinn and Whites words and accounts.
    You grieve me. This isn’t about starting and finishing it is about what is occurring.
    I agree we judge ourselves first, but we can do far more than just pray.
    We can pray God’s will be done. That is a terribly dangerous prayer, don’t you think?

  23. MARY says:

    Love is long suffering,
    love is kind,
    it is not jealous,
    love does not boast,
    it is not inflated.

    It is not discourteous,
    it is not selfish,
    it is not irritable,
    it does not enumerate the evil.
    It does not rejoice over the wrong, but rejoices in the truth

    It covers all things,
    it has faith for all things,
    it hopes in all things,
    it endures in all things.

    Love never falls in ruins;
    but whether prophecies, they will be abolished; or
    tongues, they will cease; or
    knowledge, it will be superseded.

    For we know in part and we prophecy in part.

    But when the perfect comes, the imperfect will be superseded.

    When I was an infant,
    I spoke as an infant,
    I reckoned as an infant;

    when I became [an adult],
    I abolished the things of the infant.

    For now we see through a mirror in an enigma, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know as also I was fully known.

    But now remains
    faith, hope, love,

    these three;

    but the greatest of these is love.

  24. Jackie V says:

    Umm Mary….you ”FORGOT” to mention that you were quoting from the Bible !

    You should NEVER quote a passage of Scripture without acknowledging WHERE it came from….otherwise someone out there (such as a person from another faith who has never read the Bible) will think those words came from YOU instead of the BIBLE.

    I will quote the same passage from the King James manuscript, so we can get it right.

    (Please see Dr. Scott Johnson’s website at Contending For Truth .Com and Last Trumpet ministries and key in the words —-King James Bible—–where they will each elaborate on why the KJV is the only true accurate translation of the Bible.)

    “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass and tinkling cymbal.

    And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge: and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

    And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

    Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up.

    Doth not behave unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

    Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in truth;

    Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

    Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

    For we know in part, and we prophecy in part.

    But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

    When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

    For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

    And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” 1 Corinthians 13

    (The above quoted passage is also known as the love chapter.)

  25. Marina says:

    “You should NEVER quote a passage of Scripture without acknowledging WHERE it came from….otherwise someone out there (such as a person from another faith who has never read the Bible) will think those words came from YOU instead of the BIBLE.”

    Umm…So what? It’s just ink on a page. Do you worship ink on a page?

    “the KJV is the only true accurate translation of the Bible”

    Purely subjective Jackie V. There are many that would ardently debate your King James Onlyism position. But I don’t suspect you would be open to hear opposing views on a subject you have already made your mind up about. Just sayin’…

  26. Autumn2 says:

    The lady with dark hair preaching, I think is Michelle Corral, not Suzanne Hinn, I think. There is a picture I found at a website yahoo search for images, and This person preaching looks like Michelle Corral, and Suzanne Hinn is standing next to Michelle in the picture. The Suzanne preaching video on you tube is not Suzanne, therefore, but someone else, namely this Michelle. You can not be you and stand next to you at the same time.

  27. Joy says:

    I think she looks lovely and I pray the best for her. My mom always told me to never put your confidence in man they will fail you every time. Put your confidence in GOD.

  28. no name says:

    your comments are just a mess

  29. Bene Diction says:

    Yep, conversations are messy, life is messy, relationships are messy.

  30. Hepaid says:

    The church is no different then the world. Thc world sits backs and mocks the hypocrisy. What a reproach to the name of Jesus.

  31. I am a student of BHM. As a student I know noone teaches the word of God better than Pastor Benny. Before anyone judes, find a student & come as a guest. Listen,
    take notes & study for your self.
    I personally believe Paula White set up Pastor Benny & Suzanne up & took advantage
    of a long time friendship between all 3 of them.
    I am not judging Paula White, that is God’s job. I made an observation on her pro-
    gram one night. She was talking about finding her Boaz. She kept looking at her
    hand. The camera finally showed her hand. On her left hand ring finger was a ring
    desiged exactly like Pastor Benny’s. I know this can be taken 2 ways. Pastor Benny
    loves Suzanne & his kids too much to betray them like that. In my spirit I instantly
    felt Paula had that ring designed for herself. What her motives were only God & Paula
    I have my opinion but that is all it is. I will leave it unsaid. Once again that is between
    God & Paula.
    I stand by judge not lest ye be judged. We all have things in our lives that we should
    not have done. God sent his son to save us all. Personally I am prayng God fiixes
    Suzanne’s hurt’s & restores their marriage & restores their family. The kids may be
    grown but I know for a fact they are devastated by their parent’s divorce.
    We as Christians if we all truly are need to stop all the negative talk, stand on what
    God’s word says & pray for reconciliation, & forgiveness between both of them. A
    divorce both parties become extremely hurt. I have seen Suzanne up close & spoken
    to her briefly a few times over the years. What I have seen is a lot of sadness.
    Suzanne has a husband that has a huge calling on his life. She has had to share her
    husband with the world for many years. I have prayed for years for both of them.
    They need each other, God put them together. They are each others covering for
    each other & their kids & Grandkids. It is much more effective if they are together
    as one with God, not separate. They are both still with God, but as the Bible says
    it is when 2 or more come together……..



  32. Blessed says:

    If you have never walked in someones shoes don’t judge. Many people do not realize the satanic attacks that goes with having such an anointing on one’s life. No infidelity was proven. Christians seem to be the only ones that shoot their wounded. Even though there is an anointing on their lives, they are still human. Let’s do as the Word says, ” Let’s love unconditional those back into a greater relationship with Christ. ” If if wasn’t for the goodness and mercy of our God where would any of us be? None of us are perfect and yet He loves us anyway and died for ALL of us. Let’s keep our eyes on Christ, help our brothers and sisters, and love (not judge) unconditional.

  33. Bene Diction says:

    Benny Hinn lied about why he was in Rome and what he was doing. He got caught.
    Avoid all appearance of evil….

    I was into all the TV God wants you to be rich ministries and they are false. Ernest Angley is the only true pastor I have ever found that loves God more than himself and the healing is real in his services. I think Paula, Benny, Pat, Jan, Paul, Jessie, Mike had better do something else to get rich than use Jesus. I was in a church that taught that lie and the preacher had two sons that acted like Hugh Heftner and one was hurt seriously in a car accident and I knew then you do not temp God as he is a God of love and of hate too.
