I use to love jsm praise and worship until i saw gabe swaggart bashing another youth ministry and their dancing.when thier youth ministry also involves kids jumping and dancing around to guitars, drums, electronic keyboards ect... If you are gonna judge others then may as well be squeaky clean and this is a perfect example of being a hypocrite.

All of these negative comments are proof that most of you are not right with God and have little to no clue what the Holy Spirit is. I pray for your soul's sake that you make peace with God, by returning to the Cross of Christ. If you get right with the Lord, they wouldn't have to ask for you to support the ministry with your prayers and offerings, it would be automatic for thankfulness to the Lord!

I really feel sorry for you. You need to repent. The Word clearly says not to "touch the Lord's anointed". Not sure what hapenned in your life to make you so bitter. Your clearly trying to make excuses for your "own" sin. The Lord has placed His anointing on JSM & FWC. God continues to bless Brother Swaggart as his ministry continues to "grow". People lied about him in the past & God responded by restoring his ministry.

I am a christian and believe deeply in the word of God. But i just don't believe swaggarts ministry is real... its all about money they have a shopping center going on instead of a ministry. and francis and friend my Lord they all look evil and the way they respond when ppl don't agree with them its unbelieveable. and the massage of the cross is another way they use to make money, if they really believe in the message of the cross they would put it into practice.

Jimmy swaggert is called by God not man. He doesn't need your approval. Thank God that he not a man pleaser. But lives to please God. Sounds like you have a religious spirit. I truly hope that you really get the real Jesus in your heart.

Do the Swaggarts reall have body guards. Are the singers paid, or do they do it all for free?
Recently on Frances & Friends, Frances stated that the musicians are paid.

I have no knowledge about body guards.

Do you really think that Jesus spoke in red?
Give me a break. What Jimmy has done with the Expositors Bible is amazing accomplishment. If you really think that Jimmy is all about the money, you really don't understand the Message nor do you know His heart. If you had a proper study of the Word of God you would know that the Words Christ spoke are not word for word as you study the Gospels. But they are what the Holy Spirit chose. Hopefully as you judge the heart of these men know that yours is being judged by God. Hope your motives are correct.

JSM is spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to a hurting and dying world. People are starving for the true word of God which is what they preach. It takes money to buy air time, unfortunately nothing is free. The share-a-thon is something I look forward to every month so I can take part in helping spread the gospel to our hurting and dying world so that more and more people can be saved and set free from the chains of sin. JSM offers the TRUTH which is what this world needs! Stop letting satan rob you of your joy and listen to what they are teaching, you might actually learn some truth and be set free from the grudges you hold. JSM is about the ONLY ministry that is RIGHT this day in time. Seek the Lord before you judge them because God has raised them up in these last days to carry out the message of the cross which as I said before is the ONLY message that saves and sets free! They meet their Share-A-Thon goals every month because they are in God's will. Their ministry is anointed and is a BLESSING to many. I pray that anyone who listens to the lies that are told about this ministry would just watch it for themselves and allow the holy spirit to show them them truth. May God Bless You!

Its a pity reading all these remarks and I wonder if all these people are saints that have never done wrong. Who are you to judge its God that does the judging, quit slandering and just pray for one another. Jimmy swaggart did commit a terrible sin and I believe he has been forgiven by God if we still keep bring up every sin we have committed and I know we all have then why ask God to forgive us? The past is the past and we are to leave it behind weather swaggart is doing wrong or not its not our job to slander the man, leave it in Gods hands and don't watch him on TV turn the channel instead of sitting on your comfy chair and slander the man have you nothing else to do. Pray Pray for one another.The enemy is out to destroy that is his job what is yours?

If people don't want to give or buy, then they're not obligated to. We are no longer under the law, but it sounds like you are ... expecting the Swaggarts to live up to your standards. I've read nothing here but condemnation. Christ didn't come to condemn the world. For one that passes judgement on others, I would expect you to be perfect, and we all know that isn't the case. Since you're not even able to keep any law, you should step back into grace ... and shut up. Maybe Jimmy doesn't talk about his own shortcomings because it really isn't any of your business. By the same measure you judge, you will be judged. Hope you're ready for that.

After about the 73rd time that the "Family Worship Singers" have
sung the chorus, and Randy Knapps has screamed,oops I meant sang, until his face is beet red and the veins are protuding from his forehead, and with Jimmy Swaggart sitting in the "Amen Corner" with
his always open mic singing/adlibbing to each song, and after an "impromptu" stage appearance by Jimmy who tells the singers to stay where they are and sing that song "ONE MORE TIME...", and one more time and one more time...
And then comes Act 3 of the Jimmy Swaggart Music Extravaganza ...
Anyone want to guess what it is? I'll give you 3 guesses and the
first 2 don't count....That's right, it's money time!!
Now it's time to send out the JSM bully. Donnie comes to the stage
and explains to the congregation the JSM interpretation of tithing.
He tells those watching or listening that you are not doing what God's will if you are not forking over every dime you can. And even though Donnie Swaggart condemns the "Prosperity Preachers" and how they are not doing God's will but Satans, in his next breath he says "God said he would bless the giver 100 fold." And "if you are having financial problems, you need to give more to the Lord and trust him for financial healing." And if you don't give, you are throwing away God's blessings! And God forgive if it's the Sunday prior to the monthly Beg-a-Thon, Donnie with the trembling lip and watery eyes, pours on the "God just told me..." "And you need to.." mini sermon.
Cue the music - the singers sing & the congregation marches in the offering parade down to the stage and drop their money into one of the 4 or 5 boxes set on the steps of the altar. What happened to passing the plate?
In my opinion, and this is just from my observance, this is done for a two-fold reason. My first speculation is that it's all done for the tv show. After Jimmy's fall from grace the 3rd or umpteenth time, the membership of the Family Worship Center took a huge hit.
The balcony of the church which seated over 1000 people was closed off. They still use it for their Campmeetings twice a year, but other than that it's useless except for a tv camera. I've been told that the 5000 seat sanctuary usually has less that 200 people attending on Sunday mornings. So by having all of these people making the pilgrimage to the front of the altar the place looks like it's packed.
My second reason for this money parade is the easiest of both. The ushers at the church can keep tabs on what regular parishoners do not tithe or make an offering on Sunday mornings. We know that during the morning announcements, Gabriel asks all visitors to stand up so the ushers can bring you a visitor's information card. Then Gabriel asks all visitors to meet in room 169 (i believe that is what he said) after the service to meet with the pastors and the welcoming committee. Of course this is how JSM gathers information on you so they can start the process of taking your money. It starts with mailings, and then phone calls, and the card that says "we have missed you and that we hope to have you back with us in the House of the Lord real soon."
And during the money parade, without the use of camera tricks, we see an illusion that would make David Copperfield green with envy.
Jimmy Swaggart has mastered the trick of teletransportation!!!
That's right my friends, mysteriously Jimmy Swaggart disappears from his kings throne in "Amen Corner" to being seated behind the grand piano. Don't ask me how, it could be done with mirrors or trap doors, but in a matter of seconds it happens.
Not being raised in the Pentacostal church, can anyone tell me why the singers are instructed to repeat the singing at least four times? Is this because they believe the spirit moves in the music, and also, why do the men sprint in front of the stage and one guy spins round and round with arms outstretched and the singers spring up like pogo sticks and dance around?

Jesus was criticized by the religious leaders in His day.
If one is truly doing the Lord's work truthfully is it no wonder that he will be criticized as well!
Praise God for the ministry of truth.....SBN!!!

David in the Bible committed adultery and God said that David was a man after God's own heart. so if God has forgiven Swaggart how can you hold it against hi7m what God has forgiven.

They already had a January Beg-a-thon, now here we go again. Frances and Friends wasn't on today and she's only on her show twice a week so the show should be changed to Donnie and Friends. They have no right to talk about any other ministry asking for money because they're money preachers too. Why do I watch? For the music and some preaching. Donnie said " god the son the other day. God is the FATHER, Jesus is the SON.

Jimmy Swaggart Ministries is the biggest scam I have ever seen. This congregation has an empire built up around them. Just about all the workers for the ministry are related to one another. There are husbands and wives working together with their children attending the onsite daycare, preschool, elementary school or high school. They have a massive shipping operation that can also bind and make books, etc. Share A Thon is just once a month. The Donor Services department runs daily with operators taking in donations and selling merchandise. On top of the radio station and the TV station, they also have a bookstore that sells all merchandise. They have a Bible College across from the church where you can pay a ton of money and get a degree to become a minister, I guess. Dorms for the students, a fitness center with state of the art equipment, a maintenance department that is the size of a huge administration building for most companies. This ministry has it all. If they need something, in the form of equipment, they only get the best and the most expensive. It is no wonder they need to raise 3 million plus per month. This is a business that costs millions to run. They need to rename this program to Steal A Thon because I highly doubt any of this money is going to anyone in need and being shared in any sort of way. The worst part, people all over the world are stupid enough to believe their salvation to the Lord is by giving tons of cash over to this ministry. This place needs to be busted for right out theft and scamming.

I agree, Proof. They're at it again today. Apparently they're going to beg the whole month. They're so steeped in greed that it overwhelms The Message of the Cross. In this time of a struggling economy it's sad that they shamelessly bleed their follower out of their cas by shaming them into it. People are so desperate for something to believe in and they're taking full advantage of this..They need to back off from the fund raising and go out into the workforce and earn their rich lifestyle another way other than off the backs of the members.

I am saddened by the obvious carnality that still exists in so many ministries competing for the dollar to evangelize. What must God be thinking as he anoints so many only to see them give in to their flesh.

Yes, it takes money to do what the Swaggarts and so many others are doing. If only the early church would have had the technology to evangelize the world....things would have been so different, Right?
