The leading article in this week's newsletter is an interview with Costi Hinn, written by one of the Biblical Recorder's freelance reporters, Maina Mwaura. You don't want to miss this Q&A. Hinn is the nephew of well-known televangelist Benny Hinn and a former proponent of "health and wealth" theology.
The prosperity gospel is a plague on many communities across North Carolina. Take note of Costi Hinn's words when he says, "We need to reach people with the truth because souls are at stake."
