I'm just glad his wife had the good sense to dump that piece of filth.

Well that's just grand. A political test to get into Heaven.

This sort of nonsense directly feeds Trump's pathology and makes him more dangerous.

Everybody who has ever bitched about "Politicizing" anything, or "Weaponizing" anything must be shocked and dismayed by this idiot, Jim Baker, politicizing salvation, right?

Donald Trump is the anti Christ.

Prove your devotion to Satan and embrace Trump.

Please take Jim Bakker.
We've had enough of him here on earth.

Well if a moral stalwart like Jim Bakker says so, it must be true.

Actual Bakers are glad Jim doesn't know how to spell his name right. He also has dementia as a result of the aids contract in the 80s from all the Dixs he sucked.

Religion is a mechanism to support war. That is what we're seeing here.

Bruce without even googling it we both know the majority of Churches doing want a War with Iran.

Can you imagine living eternity stuck with nothing but Trumpers?

I'll take my chances that God, with all the wisdom of creation... would send Trumpers back to basic training.

#5 doesn't their own pseudo theology around the anti-Christ claim he'll be followed by the majority of "believers"?

Bakker is correct when considering the context. I think people are getting "loving" and "following/supporting" mixed up.

You have to love your fellow humans to be considered a Christian. Love your neighbor as yourself is a key tenant of Christianity.

Now if he means supporting, then he's waaaaaaaay wrong.

Anybody who believes this criminal charlatan is truly a moron, but that seems to describe anybody who gives their hard-earned bucks to any of the evangenital crooks like Falwell and Graham. They live the lives of the wealthy, with private jets and expensive cars while their "flock" scrapes up cash to keep them living like Saudi princes. It's no wonder Drumpf glommed onto them, they are easily fooled and looking for a gawd leader/great white hope to follow. Conman Donnie truly does love the gullible, poorly educated idiots who make up America's white evangenitals, they would follow the Gropenfuhrer to the grave.

Dear 503jc69,

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
--Matthew 7:15-20

Bakker's comments were spoken like an ex-con who also paid off a woman to keep quiet an illicit sexual encounter...

I really hate Baker and his dead wife. He is a charlatan on the level of Jim Jones, Oral Roberts, L Ron Hubbard and Joseph Smith. Seems they have a God that constantly needs money. Sort of like the Catholics back in the pre-refermation days, your salvation depends on how much cash you can generate for the church, fee for baptism, fee for conformation, fee for marriage, fee for funeral mass, fee to be buried in "consecrated ground" and then fees for indulgences to get you out of purgatory early. Yep, the protestants have made a lot of progress. Not.

In my opinion, denials notwithstanding, people like Bakker really do speak for most Republicans on this site such as Nulli, Mattress, ROC, etc. They buy into that schitt, but are embarrassed to admit it.

Baker is the kind of hypocrite that Jesus, in one of his few distinct condemnations of anyone or anything, pointed out in his outright rants against religious hypocrites who were more about profits than prophets.

He compared them to coffins that were decorated in white on the outside, but on the inside were rotting dead.

I am sure that all true Christians will speak up and defend the true faith against this charlatan.

If there are any left.
