Benny Hinn's wife files for divorce

Read his letter open letter here.

Whilst I'm a million miles from Benny Hinn theologically, I'm desperately sad to read this. It's a personal tragedy for another family and it's also damaging to the cause of Christ, because the reality is that the watching world will simply read of another Christian preacher getting divorced and think- 'whatever they're preaching doesn't really 'work'.'

My other concern is that in our anonymous online era, we will probably now have a wave of reformed cyber-smugness, further reinforcing the grace-less stereotype that we reformed evangelicals struggle to free ourselves of.

Irrespective of what we think about Mr Hinn, let's get praying for Christian marriages.
