Benny Hinn announces Liberty University partnership

Best known for his false "Miracle Crusades," Word of Faith preacher Benny Hinn has announced that he is teaming up with Liberty University for ministry project that will "shake the foundations of hell."  Posting a blaring headline: World Healing Fellowship & Liberty University Institute of Biblical Studies, Hinn announced:

For some time now we have been in dialogue with Liberty University Institute of Biblical Studies in Lynchburg, Virginia, and we recently agreed that we should join hands to form a powerful, worldwide ministry connection that will touch the world and impact you eternally.

After much anticipation, I am thrilled to announce that it is now a reality. It has been on my heart for years to launch a ministerial fellowship that would result in a worldwide network of pastors and ministries that together will shake the foundations of hell for our Lord and Master, Jesus.

Whether you’re a pastor, lay leader, or in full-time ministry, your membership with World Healing Fellowship will allow you to take a biblical program of study through Liberty University Institute of Biblical Studies that will equip you with rock-solid teaching and a Bible-centered curriculum that is without equal.

Upon completion of this course you will receive a diploma from Liberty University, qualify to enroll in advanced Liberty University Institute of Biblical Studies courses, and become eligible to obtain college credit from Liberty University!

In addition, you will be invited to attend the World Healing Fellowship conference and ordination ceremony in December and receive your official licensing and ordination credentials.

But in break-neck speed, Liberty University responded with a "not so fast."  Officials there are denying an official partnership, stating instead that the partnership Hinn is referring to is with a spinoff organization that is no longer officially theirs:
