I found this meme on Facebook and it makes a very good point. If faith healing con artists like Benny Hinn really believed that they were “anointed” with the ability to heal, why do they only do this in front of sellout crowds paying big money? Jesus didn’t heal only in front of 10,000 people who paid $50 a ticket to get a seat, did he?
