TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

Growing up in the Hinn family (Benny Hinn is Costi's uncle) Costi and his family enjoyed lavish affluence. Still, as within most performance-based religious systems, for Costi there were cracks in the dam that eventually led to Jesus breaking into his life with both truth and grace. In this episode Costi outlines core false teachings of the "name it and claim it" gospel and shares what changed in his life when he met the Jesus of the Bible. He also talks about his newest book, "More Than a Healer: Not the Jesus You Want But the Jesus You Need" and why we need a "Jesus awakening."  Lots of good stuff here to listen and share.

QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE

The “name it and claim it gospel” is where people believe they can speak it into existence. I can have whatever I proclaim. Like a debit card machine. I can swipe God right now and I can start tapping into his divine account. ~Costi

The true gospel is about Jesus, His salvation, His grace, His kindness, His mercy and nothing I do can make me rich, heal me, blessed, etc. ~Costi

It’s not a sin to be wealthy but to be faithful. ~Costi

Everything I have been given all come from God and therefore I should bless the body of Christ or others outside as God allows. ~Lynn
