Convicted Christian con artist Jim Bakker now just literally selling buckets of Bibles on TV

Boing Boing

Behold, how the mighty have fallen.

Disgraced televangelist bazillionaire turned doomsday prepper and potato hyperenthusiast Jim Bakker has been reduced to hawking actual buckets of Bibles on television.  

Huh, so there *is* a Hell.

Buckets of milk and potato powder are also available. Jim would like you to know that this is the same “prosperity christianity” version of the Bible that he enjoyed reading while he was in prison.

When I first went to prison, I said I want to know Jesus. And I spent my first couple years reading Jesus. I just studied every word he spoke. And if you want to change your life, read Jesus. -Pastor Jim Bakker

[Thanks, Christian Nightmares!]

  1. “Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, free at last, to screw ’em again with a blast from the past.”

  2. If this creature is reaping ANY profit from this venture, I ask Father YAHWEH to let me speak at his judgement – not to convict the asshole, but to set the stage for his self-indictment. If he is selling in the NAME of the LORD to enrich himself, he presents a VERY bad picture of true Christians by pretending to be one.

    ” 17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves. 18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.”
    Gospel of Mark – 11: 17-18

    “Hell gets hotter for you the closer you come to it in this life.”
    Gospel of Darzak; Chapter and verse incomplete.

  3. Bakker says “When I first went to prison, I said I want to know Jesus.” But I thought he was supposed to be “pastor Jim Bakker.” Shouldn’t have already known Jesus before he started preaching, let alone before going to prison for SCAMMING people out of millions! I know he was not a christian before he went to prison, and pardon me if I don’t believe a damned thing he says now. His type will rot in hell.

  4. As Hypocritical As Bakker’s deeds Sound/are, and how much they irk… I wish to remind…

    “Let those who have no sin, cast the first stone”

  5. He says WE have sown bombs, WE have sown blood shed, BULL! The we are NOT US. Those doing the sowing are not us, so don’t include us in their dastardly deeds!
    Is the guy talking Rick Wiles? Sure sounds like his voice. He is from Truth News or something like that.
