While the publishers of Apologetics Index operate from an orthodox, evangelical Christian point of view, the intent of this site is to provide research resources from a variety of perspectives.

Therefore, unlike many other websites that deal with the issues we address, many topics on this site include links to Christian, non-Christian and secular research resources, presented from neutral, pro, and contra viewpoints.

Note: A simple color-coding system is used to help you identify the general background of sites, articles and other listings.

Secular Do You Believe in Miracles? TV documentary by The Fifth Estate (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation)
Benny Hinn may be the most popular personality in the Christian world today. Thousands pack arenas to see him heal the sick and the afflicted. Tens of thousands more watch his television program. Millions of dollars are donated every year to his ministry, none of which he says goes to him personally. But, what about those miracles? And where does all that money go? Bob McKeown investigates.

Christian The Many Faces of Benny Hinn This is the video Benny Hinn filed a lawsuit over. It is "... a unique blend of searing exposes by some of the world's leading news organizations, the biting satire of Door TV's Godstuff (as seen on Comedy Central's The Daily Show) and Hinn's own outrageous statements." In late 1999, Greg Hartman posted - in section of About.com that is no longer online - an interview with the editor of The Door. He later wrote an article in reply to some negative or incredulous reader feedback regarding that interview. It helps to know that The Door [in January, 2005 again renamed "The Wittenburg Door"] describes itself as "pretty much the only satirical Christian magazine in existence." But it's satire comes with a serious edge. As Hartman writes, the magazine is published by "The Trinity Foundation, a controversial evangelical watchdog group headquartered in Texas. Working in tandem, Trinity and The Door have been instrumental in several federal investigations of prominent televangelists -- even sending one to prison."
Let me start by answering the question uppermost in everyone's mind: Yes, she really says it. Suzanne Hinn really says ''You need a Holy Ghost enema'' right in front of a packed house at Benny Hinn's home church in Orlando, Fla. She also yells something incoherent about how women need to forget their high-heeled shoes, says that people-pleasers are ''butt-kissers,'' and she really, truly actually says this: ''If you can't get your motor started, you need a Holy Ghost enema right up your rear end!''

There's a reason I got that out of the way right at the start: Because the Holy Ghost enema clip -- for which The Door and Comedy Central are being sued by Hinn hisself -- comes at the tail end (no pun intended) of ''The Many Faces of Benny Hinn,'' which is three solid hours of some of the best investigative reporting I've ever seen.

The concept is simple: The Door has collected as many investigative news stories on Benny Hinn as they could lay their hands on and put them in chronological order, with a bare minimum of the comedy in the other Godstuff tapes. In other words, this tape isn't very funny. In fact, it's downright sickening.
