This is Your Day is a Christian television show hosted by pastor Benny Hinn[1] and broadcast several times a week in the United States by the Trinity Broadcasting Network, the Daystar Television Network, Revelation TV, Grace TV, VisionTV, INSP Networks, The God Channel and various local affiliates to an estimated four million followers. The program began in 1990 and is a half-hour long.

Synopsis[edit]

During the program, Hinn and his helpers read letters, pray, and then show highlights from Hinn's "Miracle Crusades." Hinn and his crew travel the world frequently, and a large part of the show is devoted to his crusades, in which Hinn is said to imbue people with the power of the Holy Spirit after they claim to have risen from wheelchairs, or have been healed of other ailments. Towards the final portion of the program Hinn offers gifts such as books, CDs, audio tapes, and movies as a thank you to viewers sending seed offerings. He then, using the word of knowledge, prays daily for healings in his viewing audience. Finally he concludes with an invitation for viewers to receive Jesus as their Personal Savior.

Controversy[edit]

The program has generated controversy due to widespread skepticism about Hinn's faith healings depicted in the show. Investigative news programs such as Inside Edition, Dateline NBC, and the fifth estate[2] claim that Hinn uses the power of suggestion to make crusade attendees fall on stage and believe they're cured. Several tabloid newspapers, such as the National Enquirer,[3] and tabloid television shows have claimed the supposedly cured were actually just pretending to be sick for the show.
