Benny Hinn Admits he missed it preaching about Prosperity as he reflects Billy Graham's Death

Popular Televangelist, Benny Hinn while reflecting on the death of renowned evangelist Billy Graham, has admitted he went too far with the Gospel of prosperity, Christian Post reports.
Pastor Hinn who made this confession via a Facebook broadcast said: "We get attacked for preaching prosperity, well it's in the Bible, but I think some have gone to the extreme with it sadly, and it's not God's word what is taught and I think I'm as guilty as others. Sometimes you go a little farther than you really need to go and then God brings you back to normality and reality.”
Hinn, now 65, added: “as I have grown older and I’ve come to understand the Bible more, I now realise that some of the things I learned from preachers when I was growing up aren't biblical.
He admitted that the popular interpretation of the prosperity gospel — the teaching that believers have a right to the blessings of health and wealth and that they can obtain these blessings through positive confessions of faith and the "sowing of seeds" through the faithful payments of tithes and offerings — is one of those things.
He said further: “The more you know the Bible the more you become biblically based and more balanced in your opinions and your thoughts because we are influenced.
“When I was younger I was influenced by the preachers who taught whatever they taught. But as I've lived longer I'm thinking wait a minute, you know this doesn't fit totally with the Bible and it doesn't fit with the reality. So what is prosperity? No lack. I've said this before.
"Did Elijah the prophet have a car? No. Did not even have a bicycle. He had no lack ... Did Jesus drive a car or live in a mansion? No. He had no lack. How about the apostles? None lacked among them," Hinn said. "Today, the idea is abundance and palatial homes and cars and bank accounts. The focus is wrong ... It's so wrong."
