I’m sure that you’re aware that all pastors are actors as well. The I Have Sinned confession wrought with tears was not very convincing. Swaggart was only willing to take a short disciplinary break from the pulpit. He actually defined that period. How does Swaggart line up with Scripture in this regard? Does he have a good testimony to those outside the body of Christ?
No, he has a terrible example. How does he rule his family and especially his wife? Not good forcing her to have to keep up. This is an eighty two year old woman? All because of Swaggarts many liaisons with prostitutes. He should never have been permitted to preach again. Teach and sing? Absolutely but after a lengthy period of discipline set forth by his denomination. More of that in Part Two.
