As evangelist opens US crusade, zeal and questions
By the time the Rev. Reinhard Bonnke edges toward the stage, anticipation in the thundering arena is swelling. A crowd of thousands has been told of his decades of preaching in Africa, the tens of millions of souls he has saved, the countless healings for which he has been a conduit and the modern-day Lazarus he saw risen. The floor is vibrating, the air filled is with fog, sleek videos are flashing on massive screens.
Belief in healings is a chief driver of the crowds to Bonnke's events, as it is for preachers including Kenneth Copeland and Benny Hinn, two men with whom he is closely linked. All three have been associated with the so-called prosperity gospel, which stresses God will reward the faithful with health and wealth, and all three have led ministries that have made them rich....
These b@$tards are NOTHING more than shameless atheist con men, mark my word, you will find out for yourselves on judgement day if you don't believe it. All these men are after is money, sexual favors and adoration from the gullible to make them feel like gods. They are the lowest form of con man that could exist, who use the name of Jesus to front criminal organizations. I only know of one of these con men who ever exposed his scam in the end, look up the documentary "marjoe" on youtube and you will learn one of the sources of where these modern con men learned all their tricks and schemes from.

So he tells them to turn from Satan to God, but never speaks of sin or repentance? How will they know what they are supposed to repent of? And where is the gospel of Jesus Christ? Just more dead religion for the masses.
1 Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
