Wife of Evangelist Benny Hinn Files for Divorce

SANTA ANA, CA - Suzanne Harthern Hinn, the wife of healing evangelist Benny Hinn, has filed for divorce from the high-profile minister, citing irreconcilable differences.

Don Price, longtime senior adviser to Benny Hinn Ministries, said the divorce filing took Benny Hinn by surprise.

"Pastor Benny Hinn and his immediate family were shocked and saddened to learn of this news without any previous notice," Price said. "The couple has been married for more than 30 years. Although Pastor Hinn has faithfully endeavored to bring healing to their relationship, those efforts failed and were met with the petition for divorce that was filed without notice."

Suzanne Hinn filed the papers in Orange County Superior Court on February 1st.

Hinn is well known for leading large-scale healing crusades around the world, where his popular This Is Your Day program is broadcast on Trinity Broadcasting Network and other television outlets.

He was featured on the cover of Charisma in 1979 and 1993 and has written numerous books, including his life story, Good Morning, Holy Spirit. Several of his books have been published by Strang Communications, which also publishes Charisma.

The corporate headquarters for Benny Hinn Ministries and World Healing Center Church is in Grapevine, Texas, but the Hinn family has been living in Southern California to be near the ministry-owned television studio and church in Aliso Viejo, according to the ministry Web site.

Recently, Hinn was one of six charismatic ministers targeted in an ongoing investigation by Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley, ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, to determine whether they were complying with IRS rules for nonprofits.

Hinn has said external auditors ensure his compliance with IRS regulations but he has cooperated with Grassley's office.

Married in 1979, the Hinns have three daughters and a son. - Link

Editor's Note:  Suzanne Hinn is founder of - . On the website she says, "My husband, with his blessing, has released me to fulfill and pursue the call that God has placed upon my life."  She describes Puryifying Fire's mission as ministering "God's love to widows, the orphans and the poor in a practical, as well as spiritual way." Hinn says the organization is in the beginning stages and needs a high definition television camera to take on the road.

The secret of great faith is being fully convinced of His great faithfulness to keep His Word.

It seems strange that Suzanne would name her ministry, "Purifying Fire", and then commit the opposite of a "Purified Fire" life by filing for divorce. There is definitely a need for some serious deliverance, and a binding of curses upon her life. Irreconcilable differences should NEVER BE A LEGITIMATE REASON FOR DIVORCE because walking in Truth with Jesus reconciles the differences, and  His Word tells us that we are called to the ministry of reconciliation. I feel absolutely SICK ABOUT THE ENTIRE THING. It is another reason for the ungodly to call all of us "Hypocrites of the worst order", and gives further license and excuse for other Christians to not remain FAITHFUL to the vows they made. Jesus asked the question whether He would find any faithfulness left on the earth when He returns. When He can't find it in the clergy and family, what example is that for the laity?
