Suzanne Hinn's scandalous video
In one of her sermons, Suzzane was heard telling the congregation:
"If your engines aren't revved up, then what you need is a holy ghost Enema right up your rear end!"
While some members of the Christian community considered her words as blasphemy, others came to her defence. They argued that she used the word Enema as an analogy.
Benny and Suzanne Hinn's marital life
Televangelist Toufik Benedictus described how they met in his book, He Touched Me. She was already a college graduate at that time. They got married on 4th August 1979 and worked together in Benny's World Healing Center Church in Grapevine, Texas.

Suzanne quit their 30-year-old marriage in 2010. The four children and other family members were as surprised to learn about the divorce. She filed for divorce on 1st February 2010 at Orange County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. Benny explained that they separated for a while before the divorce.
Why did Suzanne Hinn divorce Benny Hinn?
Benny asked his followers to pray for his marriage's restoration because Suzanne did not divorce him on Biblical grounds. He regretted prioritizing his ministry more than his family. His second reason for a failed marriage was that Suzanne was on drugs and emotionally unstable.
On the contrary, it is alleged that Suzanne Hinn's husband had an extra-marital affair with fellow minister Paula White. Benny explained that although they were spotted coming out of a hotel in Rome while holding hands, he and Paula were platonic friends. He admitted cutting ties with Paula to save his marriage.
Pastor Jack Hayford helped the couple reconcile, and they decided to rebuild their marriage in 2013. When it comes to Suzanne Hinn's health, she sought treatment and professional help to get rid of drugs from her body.
