The “Jesus 24” conference, set to unfold from June 6-8 in Orange County, California, with Benny Hinn at the helm and includes speakers like Francis Chan, Christine Caine, and other well-known charlatans. Hosted by Jesus Image—a group frequently in collaboration with Hinn, known for its emphasis on controversial charismatic practices such as the ‘second baptism in the spirit’—the event presents itself as a “pivotal” spiritual assembly. It purports to provide attendees with wisdom and training from “esteemed” Christian leaders, yet its association with false teachers and false teachings should leave any Bible-believing Christian thinking twice about attending.

Chan, who made our False Teacher of the Day #22, has embedded himself with Roman Catholics, charismatics, and has embraced such spiritual folly as tongues, prophecies, and even faith healings. At one ecumenical event with Roman Catholics, Chan removed his shoes on stage while several Catholic priests pray over him. At the same event, Chan declined to share the gospel with a Catholic, stating “I don’t believe the Holy Spirit wants me to.” Chan also has embraced the Roman Catholic heresy of transubstantiation.

Christine Caine, a former self-described “pastor” at Hillsong Church—a Satanic distraction—promotes a Prosperity Gospel, and associates with other well-known false teachers like Beth Moore and Joyce Meyer. Caine’s false teachings, from the prosperity gospel to the New Age practice of impartation, lead people away from biblical truth. Despite this, she receives support from mainstream Evangelicals including John Piper, JD Greear, and Denny Burk, who legitimize her presence in the Christian community. Her engagement in social justice is a facade for her spiritual poison.

These are some of the mainstream Evangelicals who will be teaming up with some of the worst false teachers of our time, Bill Johnson of Bethel Church and the notorious false teacher, Benny Hinn, to build bridges between Evangelicalism and this extreme, NAR charismaticism.

Benny Hinn, is well-known for his charlatanry, lying, and fake faith-healing nonsense while bilking his followers for millions of dollars. Hinn, who was caught with his mistress, Paula White, has claimed numerous times that he has “repented” of the prosperity gospel and desires to preach the truth, only to fall right back into the same scandals repeatedly, like a dog returning to its own vomit.

While I do not agree with continuationism, I can acknowledge that there are some continuationists who are sincere in their faith. But this extreme charismaticism is a cult and most charismatic leaders are like cult leaders in that they demand unchallenged devotion and loyalty to them. Charismatics love to twist the Scriptures to support this claim and one of the most twisted verses in the Bible that charismatics use is Psalm 105:15 (also 1 Chronicles 16:22),

saying, “Touch not my anointed ones, do my prophets no harm!”

Benny Hinn says that God once cursed Kenneth Copeland, another famous false prophet bilking people for millions of dollars, because he spoke out against him. He says that Kenneth Copeland got really sick once, and that he called him to ask his forgiveness because he had spoken ill against him at a private conference. He says that Copeland told him that God wouldn’t forgive him unless he forgave him too.

And of course, like most false teachers, Bill Johnson is neck-deep in the charismatic movement that teaches that not only does God continue give us new revelation apart from Scripture, but that the apostolic sign gifts, such as tongues, prophecy, and healings can and must be performed by people of faith.

Bill Johnson’s heresies and false teachings are much deeper than that, however, and include serious and rampant idolatry, blasphemy, and, of course, a false gospel.

Bill Johnson and Bethel Church are well-known for their music–it is also home to the popular worship band known as Jesus Culture. But many people are unaware that Bill Johnson and Bethel Church practice many things that the Scriptures condemn, including witchcraft, necromancy, and ritual occultism. For example, Johnson and his church practice a form of witchcraft known as grave-sucking (or soaking) where people will lie on the graves of dead saints in order to “suck” (or “soak”) the anointing from them. Below is a picture of Johnson’s wife, Beni, practicing this heinous act.

Why does this matter? Of course, birds of a feather … right? And we could just write them all off and say they’re all just false teachers who need to be ignored. But the reality is that while it’s easy for us to point out that everyone in this line-up at this conference is a false teacher, some of them have their feet in the doors of Evangelical churches—even Southern Baptist churches. As stated before, people like Francis Chan and Christine Caine are endorsed by major, well-known Evangelical leaders who most would not consider to be false teachers, but their endorsement of these false teachers places them in a position where they, too, should be ignored. And that’s the whole purpose of practicing discernment.
