Benny Hinn’s Brother Sam Hinn Steps Down as Pastor After Accused of Having an Affair

UPDATE on August 17, 2013:

Some people in the body of Christ think its too soon for Pastor Sam Hinn to return to the pulpit. It sounds like Pastor Hinn was being very impatient about how the process of restoration was going. Read below some of the comments and what Hinn did:

“I have to confess that when I heard about the plans to re-ordain Sam, I was upset. I told one of my ministry colleagues, ‘This is a joke and makes a mockery out of everything I hold dear and have spent my life proclaiming and upholding,'” wrote Pastor Ron Johnson, who was charged with overseeing Hinn’s restoration process.

“I outlined a two-year plan of restoration and walked through the initial stages with him. But after three months, Sam wanted to renegotiate the terms. When I wouldn’t agree to that, he withdrew from my covering and has since found a group of men willing to endorse his leadership in a more expeditious manner.”

Noteworthy is the dichotomy of responses to Hinn’s restoration among lay believers and clergy alike. Some believe it was too soon. Others pull the legalistic card on anyone who suggests it was too soon. Still others point to money motivations. Let’s look at some of the Facebook responses to Johnson’s article:
“Look how the ‘Christian population’ treated Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Bakker. Yes, they did sin. Do you see them on TBN? Daystar? You will see Sam Hinn. It is disgusting. This is the reason so many good and decent Christians have stopped going to church,” Verla Toney wrote.
What do you think?

UPDATE on August 13, 2013:

It’s been 8 months and now Benny Hinn’s brother, Sam Hinn is returning to the pulpit after the scandalous news of an alleged affair he had with a church member. The founder and pastor of the Church on the Living Edge in Longwood, Fla., Bishop Mark Chironna, sent out a phone message to the church’s members this week announcing that Hinn would be “re-ordained” by Chironna, Archbishop Lonnie Langston and six other bishops. The message indicated that Langston, founder of Tabernacle Bible Collegeand Seminary, would be installing Hinn as a professor at the Tampa, Fla., school. Source

It was long ago that Benny Hinn hit the news about his alleged affair with Pastor Paula White and he was divorced by his wife. Though he and his wife have since reconciled, they called off their remarriage until another date. Now, it seems the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree while his younger brother is in the public eye with a sex scandal of his own. Why do many of these pastors find themselves in so much trouble and in many cases its a church sex scandal that seems to be the culprit?
