"Our desire is for Jesus to be pre-eminent in all we do."
- Ray and Laila Bevan
On 23rd. August, 2013, I published an article advising and warning people that King's Church in Newport, under its Senior Minister Ray Bevan, was hosting the notorious Word-Faith heretic, fake healer, false prophet, nefarious End-Times deceiver, Mr. Benny Hinn. This article, amended as requested by Ray Bevan, can be found at:
In that article I incorrectly said that Mr. Bevan had divorced his wife. Some 15 months later, he has contacted me to correct this wrong assumption on my part; it was his wife who divorced him. His requests were properly and promptly responded to. I have no problem in apologizing for and rectifying errors that are brought to my attention. Such an action is only right and proper.
I have asked Mr. Bevan if he would admit to his own error in regards to the hosting of Benny Hinn, and apologize to the people of Newport and beyond, who were thus exposed to great spiritual and emotional harm. I am sad to report that he has been quite unable to bring himself to do so. I sent him the personal testimony of a gentleman who attended one of these meetings with his friend, full of anguish at what had transpired. Mr. Bevan would not even acknowledge this gentleman's Christian concerns, let alone respond to them in any way.
In the interest of transparency before men and before God, the exchange of emails between us is published below. People who chance upon this may therefore have the opportunity to make up their own minds about all this, and comment if they so wish.
