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.
This lady in particular seems horrified at putting sinning ministers into the pulpit.
Do the following ministers have a good reputation to those outside the body of Christ? Benny Hinn after taking Paula White to Rome, Jim Bakker and his affair with Jessica Hahn outside of marriage not to mention his homosexuality, Jimmy Swaggart and his affairs with prostitutes, Ted Haggard and his homosexuality, Bill Hybels and his sexual assaults of Staff members over the years, Doyle Davidson when he took another man’s wife for his own, David C Pack for excessive spiritual abuse in a previous Church, and Todd Bentley for drug abuse. All these pastors are still preaching despite not having a good reputation to those outside the body of Christ. They don’t even have a good reputation within the body of Christ. If they repent they can still teach after spiritual discipline but they can no longer lead a church. 1st Timothy 3:1-7 provide the guidelines for church leadership. The aforementioned pastors do not follow that guideline and worse still their congregations support their abysmal Behavior. All these pastors literally snub their noses at scripture. Career pastors are not biblically correct. They follow their own rules not those of the Lord. They can still have a Ministry in church but not in leadership. So why do they?
A PASTOR MUST HAVE A GOOD TESTIMONY TO THOSE WHO ARE OUTSIDE- 1st Timothy 3:7. Does Jimmy Swaggart?
I HAVE SINNED O LORD! So why is he still preaching? He had sex with prostitutes while being married. Doesn’t anyone follow the Bible anymore? AND MY PEOPLE LOVE TO HAVE IT SO- Jeremiah 5:31. What about Jim Bakker? He was sent to prison for 5 years for fraud.
MY PUNISHMENT FROM GOD IS EATING MY HORRIBLE AND YUCKY SURVIVAL FOOD! Does Bakker Have a good testimony to those that are outside? And My people love to have it so! Oral Roberts played Let’s Make a Deal With God by staying up in this Prayer Tower until a certain amount of money was raised. He later claimed to have a face-to-face encounter with a 900 foot tall Jesus Christ. And my people love to have it so! Paula White has been divorced 3 times so does she have a good testimony to those that are outside? She also had an affair with Benny Hinn. And My people love to have it so! During the Houston flood Joel Osteen’s Church failed to open its doors for several days as a shelter for people that had lost everything. Why the delay Joel? Was that a good testimony to the people of Houston? And my people love to have it so! The list goes on and on in Pentecostal circles. But I have a question for you. When are God’s people NOT TO LOVE TO HAVE IT SO????
Two qualifications of a pastor are they are not to be greedy for money and they are to have a good testimony to those that are outside the church. As for the first qualification noted that would eliminate the majority of Pentecostal preachers today. Kenneth Copeland has his own airport for his 5 planes, Paula White told her congregation to donate a month salary or God would get them, Benny Hinn, Jesse Duplantis, Joyce Meyers, Juanita Bynum, TD Jakes, and many many more all are unqualified to be a pastor. The woman pastors automatically are unqualified according to the Pauline Epistles. What about those and let’s have a good testimony to those that are outside? Does Jimmy Swaggart when he had sex with prostitutes or Jim Bakker who bilked Millions of dollars from his followers? It would seem that the Pentecostal Church makes their own rules for pastors. And an literate congregation sees nothing wrong with that.
Why do congregations even allow such unbiblical pastors that flourish in the Pentecostal Church. They don’t follow the Bible one bit and no one seems to care. I classify the Pentecostal Church as an apostate cult. If the blind lead the blind both will fall into a ditch. Ezekiel 14:10 says, the punishment of the prophet shall be the same as the punishment of the one who inquired. Perhaps we should start listening to the word of God instead of the Godless Pentecostal pastors.
Does this look like a 81 year old woman to you? I have a video about this woman who was supposed to have knee surgery done on both knees at the same time in 2012. Francis Swaggart This video shows the lies of this ministry couple who wanted you to believe that she had knee surgery on both knees. instead she was getting extensive plastic surgery on her face. So why the lie?
Frances Swaggart could not accept herself as she was so she went into a hospital for plastic surgery on her face to make her look young again. The Bible says charm is deceitful and beauty is fleeting. Frances Swaggart could not accept this so thousands of dollars were spent to make this 81 year old woman young again. What kind of Hearts do the Swaggart’s have?
You have to think that the Swaggart’s want you to look at the outward appearance instead of the heart of an 81 year old woman. This couple is deceptive and Jimmy Swaggart should never have been allowed to return to ministry after his affair with prostitutes.
Jimmy Swaggart is trying to justify his corruption. A pastor must have a good testimony to those outside the body of Christ and he does not 1st Timothy 3:7. Why the cover up in the first place about Francis having two knee replacements? Why not just tell the truth about her plastic surgery? She still wanted charm and beauty which the Bible labels as deceptive and that is what this couple is deceptive. They have no business leading the church. They make their own rules apart from the word of God.
Swaggart lied about his wife having plastic surgery just as he lied about himself having sex with prostitutes. What does the Bible say? It says that Swagger lacks understanding and that he has destroyed his own soul. That’s why lying comes so easy to him. How can someone that has destroyed his old soul lead a church?
Why is Jimmy Swaggert still preaching? The New Testament provides us with biblical standards for pastors. When Swaggert had multiple affairs with prostitutes, while married, he was committing adultery. He who does so destroys his own soul. His reproach will not be wiped away. Does Swaggert have a good testimony among those who are outside? Absolutely not despite his teary eyed confession. According to scripture he can never again preach. Can he teach? Absolutely but only after a lengthy period of restoration.
He would need to undergo biblical counseling according to the scriptures. But he can never preach again because he has destroyed his reputation as a pastor. By remaining in the pulpit, Swaggert is thumbing his nose at the scriptures.
How has Swaggert handled this requirement for a pastor? How is an adulterer a good manager of the household since he cannot even manage himself? Swaggert does not belong in the pulpit and his elders need to remove him from his ministry. Yes, there is forgiveness but there are also consequences.
I’m sure you’ve heard Benny Hinn say this many times and he’s not the only one. You can almost pick out your favorite Pentecostal pastor and he’s done the same thing Benny does. Have they never heard of this scripture? Matthew 6:24 says, YOU CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MONEY OR MAMMON. I remember Jim Bakker saying that he had never heard of this scripture until he entered prison. He was a pastor for many years prior to that and it’s hard to believe that he never saw this verse from the middle of The Sermon on the Mount! The name it claim it phonies believe that can speak words into existence almost like magic. You know, it is Magic.
Now you know where the prosperity preachers got the name it claim it idea. I will create as I speak and that is abracadabra. And that is what I call the Abracadabra Church. You know it as the Pentecostal Church but they practice the same thing.
The Magic Kingdom of Pentecostalism is the occult. And here are its inhabitants.
People just destitute of the truth suppose that godliness is a means of gain. The Bible tells us, from such withdraw yourself and not your money. These pastors are Satan’s pastors having been taken captive by Satan to do Satan’s will. Press any of the categorical names below and you can pull up all the writings I’ve done on each one Again, withdraw yourself in Jesus name. Amen!
Can a fallen pastor regain his Pulpit again according to the Bible? NO! To be a pastor it is one strike and out because you have to have a good testimony to those who are outside. Jim Bakker does not have a good testimony to those outside the body of Christ. Heritage Park USA bilked believers out of millions of dollars. Jim Bakker went to prison and once out went right back to his vomit again. He now sells survival food and Survival equipment.
I have sinned was Jimmy Swaggart’s confession for having sex with prostitutes. He also does not belong in the pulpit again.
Ted Haggard had sexual relations with another man and considers himself bisexual. But, like the others, is preaching again. It would seem the Pentecostals I have a different Bible than I have.
These are the qualifications for a Biblical pastor. Jim Bakker, Ted Haggard, and Jimmy Swaggart all fail this test. Can they still teach? Absolutely but they cannot preach. And they do anyway. Pentecostal seem to set up their own rules over that of scripture. From whom much is given much is required. All three also are greedy for money. If faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God why aren’t these pastors on radio Which is far less expensive then television? Do I hear a witness?
I’d look sad if I were you Jimmy because your Bible is perverted. Why do you compare yourself favorably to the Apostle Paul? Why did you remove the red letters of Jesus Christ from the Gospels? Why are your words and notes in color in your Bible? This is from a pastor that has had sex on multiple occasions with prostitutes and does not accept church discipline. I have an attachment that would be worth your time to read. Jimmy Swaggart Tammy Faye Bakker Could Cry On Cue anytime so what about the tears of Jimmy Swaggart? Are they real? More importantly are they sincere? There is a great deal of corruption in Jimmy Swaggart Ministries including that of his wife Francis. For weeks Swaggart lied about his wife having knee replacements. What was his wife Frances having?
Both Francis and Jimmy Swaggart are living a lie and why should anyone be following them at all?
How many people remember Jimmy Swaggerts plea for forgiveness in 1988? Having an affair with a prostitute should have denied him the pulpit forever. He could still teach after being restored, but not preach. The key point is would Swaggert resign his pulpit? Of course he wouldn’t because his ministry was bigger than the scriptures that revealed his conduct before all. Again Swaggert could still teach but not from the pulpit. Swaggert did not know how to take care of his own house. So how would he be able to take care of the church of God? I have a video of this whole Incident which you can view for yourself.
balaam’s ass could talk and so can I. My ancestry goes back to Noah’s Ark as I supplied the pews for religious services also adding a few scents to the offering plate. I can tell you this that if I were part of the Prosperity Gospel I would let my tail do the talking to people that would not give. I thought of joining the new Apostolic Reformation but I thought they were stinky enough. I wanted a spot on the Jim Bakker Show but while I was waiting for an interview I ate some of the survival food and almost died. Needless to say I did not get the interview. I then went to Jimmy Swaggart asking for a job but he was in the middle of one of his SOB stories that never seem to end. That man could be a human fountain. I went to Heidi Baker next thinking with all her weird theology I can fit in quite well. But she would not let me in. I finally figured it out that I should be partnered with Mike Murdock because we both stink. In his dotage he thought I was a cat so he adopted me and I found a home. Do you know that guy rehearses his wisdom keys in front of a mirror? I finally found the perfect job and so if you want to get in touch with me email me at Pew research. I’m thinking of converting to Catholicism for with a swish of my tail I can create my own stinky tales that will rival what they produce.
Does this sound prosperous to you? Jesus said, you cannot serve God and money in Matthew 6:24.
It doesn’t appear his apostles were very prosperous either. Prosperity pastors teach a false gospel.
We are not, as so many, corrupting the word of God which is found in 2nd Corinthians 2:17. The word corrupting means making merchandise out of you. If you will recall Jesus chased the money-changers out of the Temple with a whip of cords. That would have been the prosperity preachers of today.
