In 1986, TV Evangelist and con-artist Jim Bakker opened a Christian Theme Park raising money promising lifetime vacations for followers of his ministry. Instead, the $158 million dollars went into purchasing an air conditioned dog house and other luxuries like a fleet of Mercedes Benz and Rolls-Royce cars.
He was convicted in 1989 on 24 counts of wire and mail fraud and conspiracy, and served five years in federal prison.
At the height of his business, he made $129 million a year. Mr. Bakker portrayed himself as a preacher, not a businessman…
Now he is at it again selling cabins and water for the end times…
2 Peter 2:3 – And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
Christian Conman Jim Bakker Selling Cabins and Water for End Times
Televangelist Jim Bakker suggests that if you want to survive the end of days, the best thing you could do is buy one of his cabins in Missouri’s Ozark Mountains. And while you’re at it, be sure to pick up six 28-ounce “Extreme Survival Warfare” water bottles for $150.
“Where are you going to go when the world’s on fire? Where are you going to go? This place is for God’s people. … We need some farmers to move here,” Bakker said on Tuesday’s show.
“Do you know the people from the government, from NASA, the research from so many of them, they have said in their research that the safest place to live in troubled times is right here. That’s why God brought us here,” Bakker said.
Along with advertising the cabins and survival equipment, The Christian Post reported, Bakker’s Morningside community has also been making plans to add an amphitheater and a chapel.
