Televangelist Jim Bakker took the airwaves to claim that this really is the end of it, that he has less than a week to raise a million dollars in funds or else the network is going cancel his broadcast – a fund-raising endeavor unlikely to be achieved.
Bakker has long been struggling financially, particularly since last year when the credit card companies cut him off and reduced him to only taking checks to support his ever-dwindling ministry, the result of continued fallout and legal action after seeking to sell colloidal silver as a cure-all for the novel coronavirus in 2020.
A few months ago he was on air pleading with people to buy a $1000 miracle blanket, demonstrating that with this desperate new venture, his ministry is basically being held together by duct tape, chewing gum, and bottled demon tears at this point. His newest cry for help makes this even more clear.
I’ve been told that the network’s going to cancel my broadcast within another week. We’ve got to catch up on the bills, and that’s about a million dollars…We lost millions in finances due to the legal battles we have fought; losing our ability to receive donations by credit cards for over a year has left us in a desperate state. What the devil has tried to do is silence our voice! I’m asking you, as a friend and long-time supporter of this ministry, as valuable partners, will you help us turn this wolf away from our door? We’re not crying wolf, our door…would break down if the wolf comes in. Because he’s there. He’s at the door. He’s not near the door, he’s at the door.
At the same time, because he is a supreme huckster, he may have found his niche; modeling his business after stores that have had huge signs that had said “Going out of business! Everything 50% off!” for the last 30 years. If nothing else, this pitiful cry might be the new perpetual bait that serves to chum up the waters for his ignorant and ailing audience.
[Editor’s note: The only wolf involved in this story is Jim Bakker.]
A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by censorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
So we have some great ways for you to EASILY support our work that will take less than 3 minutes of your time to do.
First, check our our page explaining this all at detail at https://supportpolemics.com
But in short, you can support us on Patreon and get exclusive rewards like the FULL non-truncated episodes of the bi-weely Polemics Report podcast ONLY available on your Patreon app. It's super easy to use. Get exclusive updates from JD. Get all that and support our work for only $5.95 a month. You'll also get a PAID subscription to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" once a day for 50 news links to banned content you can't find in social media. For other patron tiers, you can join us live via zoom to interact with JD during the Bulldgomatic Bible study, get free theology books in the mail, and more.
Or, if you don't want to use Patreon and don't want the rewards, subscribe to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" for free (three days a week) or $7 dollars a month (notice that's a dollar more than getting it through Patreon) or $70 dollars a year. Instead of you scouring the news, let our Gideon Knox News team do the news-hunting FOR YOU and it will save you time finding real news.
And finally, you can give a one time financial gift through Giving Fuel . It's also super-easy to set up and takes only minutes.
