The Sample Five

I have five personalities from different  faiths.
I found it quite interesting to look into the possibility and likely hood of these people having a free passage through the golden gates of Heaven.Two are deceased and  we may not hold any doubt as to where one would be now.
Benny Hinn is an example of his kind who have virtually hijacked all faiths and religions.Thriving on the wrecked lives of people and the gullible .
Benny Hinn was born in  1952, in the then newly established state of Israel.
Took to evangelism, and reportedly earns revenue in excess of USD 250 million a year. He,Hinn is known for his  extravagant life style. He claims to have anointing, special power given by God to heal the sick. Watch dog groups have alleged that his healing acts are contrived and participated by volunteers. Hidden cameras placed at his healing ministries have found deep set and well orchestrated false and fake practises. Hinn exhorts people to donate to his ministry and be saved from all debts by the Lord.

Facts on Benny revealed by NBC:-- Hinn's salary is somewhere around a million dollars per year.
 he has a $10 million seaside mansion,.
 he owns a private jet with annual operating costs of about $1.5 million. and he drives a Mercedes SUV and convertible, valued at about $100,000 each.

Benny Hinn Ministries supports  quite a few missions of charity around the world.

Mother Teresa - needs know encomium or  help from any amicus curiae

Nelosn Mnadela the living symbol of conscience.

The current bearer of St Peter's legacy. One of the richest person in the world.Ornamentally dressed and ostentatious- in total contrast with the shepherd he swears by.
Zealously labours in spreading the "Word" around the world .
Is awkwardly placed in his relationship with other faiths.

The White Sahibs of Great Britain called him "the willy politician and the half naked fakir.
Albert Einstine quoted in his eulogy ,"generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this in flesh and blood walked upon this earth".
All that he possessed while he was shot dead was ,a pair of leather footwear, a metal rimmed spectacles,a fountain pen ,a pocket watch , a wooden walking stick, a manual spinning wheel, besides the home spun cotton fabric he draped around his body.

I think it's blasphemous even to place the other two with Gandhiji, Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela!

It is so great a feeling to discover a brother in arms.
But we are in the minority .

A few people have lived and inspired others by their selfless love and sacrifice expecting nothing in return, a few others pretend and expect plenty in return. And where do we belong?

anilkurup said...

It is not where we want to belong. Do you or I have the acumen to be in either of the two places?

deeps said...

The first figure is new to me, but is he an author? the others of course are faces seen, heard and read about…but as for their entering the golden gate.. ehem…

@ deeps
The guy Benny Hinn in the first picture is a sample of the many of his kind that we see in all faiths and every where. Kerala is special Gods own place for these creatures.
Beeny Hinn is a tele-evangelist who has made riches by his well orchestrated faith drama.

I agree completely to RGB. We might not be able to reach even half way to what Mother Teresa accomplished or to What Gandhiji stood for, I just hope that our sight doesnt waver from that direction, at least then our steps have a positive direction to them. Benny Hinn is a joke!

There are 2 odd ones out there. :-)

The other 3 have showered selfless love and care for mankind and did strive hard in their own way to help.

The other 2 - all talk and no substance. They do it to feed for their extravagant lifestyle

@ Sujatha
You are right. I felt that the group was perhaps a sample lot of what one can be in life.Thank you for the comment.

Your point is matter of fact. But the following may be with the minority two.
