Most of our vacations have been centered around Christian crusades, starting with Billy Graham's, then adding in others. Usually the cities have lots to see and do. Those meetings, like Benny Hinn's, are always lengthy, sometimes 4 hours at a time. What you see on TV is but a tiny fraction of all that happens there. What you don't see is church volunteers moving around ministering to people where they sit or stand, laying hands on them, praying, seeing miracles happen, people delivered from all sorts of problems, helped to figure out what kind of church they might fit into back home, all sorts of helps. That happens in the hour(s) before the main event, and when the key preacher initiates a ministry time later after praise and worship. All denominations are liekly to be there, none protesting anything.
Sermons go much longer than typical time slots on TV. Enough gets preached to gain a very good understanding of how biblical the ministries are. We've heard some very disappointing statements from them all, even Graham, but if I screened them all based on an occasional error (what has usually been my ill-informed disagreement), they would all be on my ignore list. Some are. In Hinn's case, Jesus is heavily preached, so is the blood of Christ, salvation a key topic. Most do preach Christ very well, while some jump onto their doctrines of expertise, such as healing, like Oral Roberts for many years, and the Abrahamic blessing basis of Christianity like Copeland like to preach.
I've been corrected by the Lord many times over criticizing ministries, usually over a few minor complaints. I've stopped opposing any if they preach Christ simply based upon
Mark 9:38-41 (KJV) 38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.
39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
40 For he that is not against us is on our part.
41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
The disciples were obviously in error being against a man ministering in Jesus' name, even if the minister does things differently. If a critic of a minister like Hinn has never taken the time to actually go get a whole picture of that ministry, how can you be certain there was enough information in a small TV segment to be just in judging his message? From experience I know it's necessary to diligently observe any ministry, any preacher, far beyond one sermon that was mostly disliked because it was too different. Much of what Hinn has been attacked over are not Bible facts, but his opinions about doctrines, which is a major basis of creating more denominations.
Probably most of the alarms against preachers is over their money issues. Again from experience I know most of the complainers resist giving to any ministry, even their home church. In addition, complainers over money tend to not be vessels of money, unable to bless anyone but themselves and theirs. Christians that are generous with giving and tithers tend to always have significant financial involvement in at least one ministry., beginning with their local church congregation.
I refuse to risk prosperity over unbiblical complaining about how someone else deals with money they are responsible to God for as stewards. If I grow to disagree with a ministry, I simply move support to the ones that are better on track. It isn't worth causing your own blessings to become more like curses by cursing anyone, especially if they are a fellow Christian. It's not wise to be a remover of eye splinters, most of us trying to do that with a 2x4 beam in our own eye. Challenge doctrinal error instantly without destroying a brother.But to do that you must know the Word well enough to sort the good and bad. Not many Christians can do that, so they rely upon some "scandal" of a preacher living in a wonderful castle.
