Costi Hinn on Walking Away from the Prosperity Gospel

Wealth. Luxury. Comfort. Who wouldn’t want these things?

Costi Hinn is the nephew of one of the most famous prosperity preachers in the world, but he no longer works for his uncle. After growing up in a life of luxury, Costi found Jesus outside the Word of Faith movement. In what became our most listened-to interview of 2019, he tells his story, while also explaining what the prosperity gospel gets wrong about Jesus.

    Each of these men write books and prosper from the sales of these books. It’s sad that Costi is making money by writing a book discrediting his uncle. I do not in any way promote the prosperity gospel, I just feel that the truth can be preached without bludgeoning another.

    • I see your point but on the other hand not all listen to the radio and the exposure of Hinn and his “operation” is most needed. I was impressed by Costi’s story. Truly a work of God bringing him from darkness to light!

      There is a section at the beginning of the book called Statement of Financial Accountability. ALL proceeds from the sale of God, Greed and the (Prosperity) Gospel will be used to fund theological education and resources for pastors and leaders who have been exploited by the prosperity gospel.
