Addicted To Jim Bakker-MorningSide Blue Eye Mo

I wrote this for you to read ^^^^^^^^^^

Have you ever been addicted to a program you hate? I know,
that makes no sense. If one has an injection phobia,
does one volunteer to give blood weekly?

I have a hard time explaining to people why I used to be addicted to the PTL Club and why I now record and watch some of the Jim Bakker shows.

But the explanation is simple:

Bakker is so outrageous, I just cannot turn him off. First with PTL, Jim was selling partnerships in Heritage USA,

a huge family oriented PTL or so it was claimed PTL project, now in ruins.

Now it's Morningside, which I predict will be in ruins in a few years.

Heritage was fraudulent, and rubble is often what happens to hopes and dreams that are based upon fraudulent claims.

Morningside? Tune in and you be the judge.

Jim’s good at selling. He lays down a façade of ministry,

a cover, when what’s really going on is a sleazy sales pitch.
After an eight year stint in federal prison

it would have been much longer but his appeal resulted in a reduced sentence

Jim’s back doing what he did before, selling what looks to be cheaply made condos under cover of providing a religious program. It’s called the Jim Bakker Show,

and this time, instead of the now deceased Tammy Faye to laugh at, we have Jim’s wife, Lori, a busty blonde with a lurid past, and a brain that might fill a thimble.

This time, Jim’s selling units at Morningside, a five hundred sixty acre development in Blue Eye,Mo- near Branson, MO,

owned by his friend Jerry Crawford.

Jerry brought Jim and Lori out and put him up and on the air,

so Jim could sell his cheap Bibles, tiny swords, Jesus pictures,

“partnerships” and CDs at inflated “Love Gift” prices, and so Jim could spend most of his programming hour pushing Morningside units.

My wife and I were in Branson, and we drove by the complex. We laughed out loud. The “village” had a roof, a big one.

Long, black I-beams provided a three story structure that stretched for several hundred yards. So what now looks like a strip mall is

Jim’s Village of Morningside,
which is nothing more than a television set,

a few shops selling trinkets and plastic or coated religious stuff at inflated prices, a bakery, a general store,

maybe something of a restaurant, and of course condos, apartments, a hotel and building sites.

If you want to watch the Jim Bakker Show from the tiny balcony of your postage stamp condo, one or two stories above a fake street, you’d like Morningside.

I’m sorry, but Jim’s show is so outrageous, I just cannot turn it off.

And you should see Jim beg.
He’s got all the tools. I don’t think a show goes by where Jim doesn’t cry.
Or pretend to do so.
Jim’s lip will quiver, and he’ll talk about how much money he needs to do one more program,

Oh sure, Jim mentions Jesus once in a while, usually in a loud, practiced stretch-syllable Southern Baptist way,

like speaking the name Itself will provide enlightenment and salve all his sins.“Yes,” he’ll say,“Jeeeeeezzz-us loves us,” as if this makes the sales pitch a holy one.

But while the guy can sell, he’s not very smart. Jim’s a preacher, right?

Then what was PTL all about? You don’t think PTL was just a money grab, do you?

Of course it was. And so is Morningside and the Jim Bakker Show.

From Faraway Citizen To Ben Small, I found your article in the Muderous Musings, and thought you hit the nail on the head.
For a while now I couldn't understand why I would want to watch the Jim Bakker TV show, when I read your article, then I realized why, the am also curious and outraged that he continues to stay on TV and collect money. He said recently that a "Terrible Bad thing" was going to happen at the end of 2010, well, we are still here and nothing bad happened. He also has stated that to the people that he said, " people if I told you what I know, I would be arrested". Whatever he meant by that I have no idea, planting fear thoughts.
I do believe that times are not good we all can see that. But for Bakker to ask for money so we can buy his "Watches, food buckets, writ sleep bands, water filtration bottles, etc, these products we will not need if we have a catastrophe, no one will be using these silly items. Our money should go for a better use. He is just another Elmer Gantry!!

I know, just let the a " The Wheat and the Tares", grow together, God said we will know them by the their end result and by their fruit. I have emailed him many times, I asked about both of their testimonies when they gave their heart to Jesus, never a reply.
Maybe because I have complained about Bakker selling food buckets, watches, sleep wrist bands, oh I know, I guess he thinks we will need those things when our world ends....
His son Jay posted me back, and he is the opposite side of Bakkers, he is down and on a revolutionary track. He has a church, but we are not on the same page.
God said it would happen, so be careful who to listen to, and who you give any money too.(Even if people make a mistake on that, God will still bless you). Be watchful, listen to what these preachers are saying. There is two I know of that seems right on still.
1. The church I go to
2. Pastor Bayless Conley( Cottonwood C.C.) in Los Alamitos, Ca.
I have listened to him for years, and he has only grown more right on...

Bakker is a fraud.Not once on his show has he ever preached the true gospel of Jesus Christ.He uses disasters and trouble to sell his items which is all that ever happens for the hour he is on tv.After the quake and tsunami march 11 in japan not once has he encouraged anyone to pray or send any help to the japanese people.Instead he has shown all kinds of footage to scare people into buying his junk.Make no doubt about it ,we are in perilous times and it is good to be prepared for disaster,but if bakker thinks he is going to escape the tribulation by living in the mountains on freeze dried food he is sadly mistaken.This show is exactly why people shun christianity and think we are all nuts.It is a false representation and should be removed from christian television(along with about 70% of the other false teachings on so called christian television)and placed on the comedy network.

They say Lori Bakker used to be a hooker. I don't doubt it, she looks like she could suck the chrome off a trailer hitch.

Jim Bakker is not a fraud. You all should be ashamed; yes you can judge, but the Word says be careful how you judge, for how you judge, you shall be judged. The only problem with Jim is, he's Jim; he's doing the only thing he knows to do and you don't know his heart; only God; I am doing a documentary for public access and God has put Jim on my heart as one of the people to give a real representation of all that is past and present in his life. And, as for Lori; how dare you! She was in Master's Commission; are you in Master's Commission and what is she supposed to do: berate her husband; I believe she prays for him as you all should do; be very careful; you may think your comments are funny; they are a bad fragrance in the nostrils of our Lord. I watch his show and God knows I do not agree we are going through God's wrath; I see the Church (aka Bride) being retrieved in the 4th Chapt of Revelation since John seems to represent the Bride or His Beloved and the Door is open and the Voice calls Him up; so, we should believe God not any preachers that we don't believe is on track; yes, there are some earthquakes happening to show us a foretaste of what the lost will experience; it's going to be a lot worse for them than us. So, Jim should concentrate on selling the food to the lost; they are going to need it; then if they are blessed enough to receive Christ during the Tribulation they will have food to eat. That's my opinion and if I'm wrong, I still believe Jesus will carry me through. If you have posted your opinion haven't received Christ as your Savior, and some of you don't act like He is in your hearts (He wouldn't be saying some of the things you have said), then ask Him to forgive you as I ask Him to forgive me if I am being offensive and He will forgive you.

Some of the things you guys have said are true; others are ridiculous.
I do agree: Jim is using scare tactics to sell his food buckets. It is working for him, though, and as he put it, "is it stupid to have a bandaid around just in case?" Under certain circumstances having dehydrated food around the house is smart; but with your house under water you couldn't eat it. You'd escape your house and the bucket would float around.
I see nothing "nasty" looking about Jim. I consider nasty being needing a shave , being obese, wearing gross clothing. He looks very nice. He's seventy. Lotsa luck being as lively and healthy as he is when you're that age. Let's see you bounce on a rebounder for ten minutes at seventy.
Lori is not Mexican. She and Jim adopted those sweet kids from a Phoenix slum area. So find something insulting to say about that.
Jim does not preach the true Gospel?? Wrong. Whose is he preaching then? He quotes from the Bible; is that not good enough for you?
And the dumbest post of all time: "I feel like it's either going down or prospering." well, duh. Some of you need to go back to high school.

while i beleive that this is a true statement the place is beautiful but the people left to run the place leaves alot to be desired with no compassion to others and money on the brain. the place will fall apart in no time at all. its funny to sit inside and watch all the many happenings take place like the married woman in charge who sleeps with a co-worker and uses her husband only for new things like a new truck or mr jerry jones who robs the place blind and has tempertantums if you dont follow as he says when he says it all the people who fully beleive this will get you heaven as his web page says are sorly mistaken they have people working as vounteers who work like slaves without pay or so much as a paycheck and the cost for all the great gifts is 100% marked up they are bought for 40 dollars and marked for 100 dollars if this is how you get to heaven count me out...my beleif is to treat others as you would want to be treated and this place leaves alot to be desired as you walk in they smile in your face and steal you blind as you walk away...

A Brilliant statement: "it will either prosper or go down the drain." What a psychic.
Show us how it's not prospering. I'm waiting for the answer.

A tale as old as time. Jim is Jim, and freeze dried ice cream is freeze dried ice cream, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

First met jim many years ago. Met his brother and ex wife, my first impression was that he was using religion as a hustle. My opinion has not changed. I had a mentor. He was also my father, a wise kind and very successful guy. WW2 vet, one of the greatest generation. Raised four kids married 30 years til cancer took my mom. One morning when I was a kid, before church there was a televangelist on TV asking for money in the name of god. He was wearing a 500 suit,(in those days alot of money) and had a comical huge hair do. My self and my sisters were watching this guy bounce around the stage. My dad smiled turned off the tv, and said" all those tv preachers will probably burn in one big pile". I have never yet had one thing my dad told me come to pass.

I would love to see a photo of Jim's big' Lakeside home. I think Jim means well, but something isn't right when people live high on the Hog when others send in money..fancy clothes, cars, eating out, big vacations, manicures, hair dye......photos please... :))

I don't consider "eating out" or "manicures" a sign of ripping off the public. He writes and sells books, too. He isnt living in a mansion and driving a rolls royce. My pedicure cost $25. People really shouldn't expect the Bakkers to be in poverty. My God; he works hard although most think he's in leisure, his wife works along with him and sells her own books==why should they not be able to go on some vacations and eat out? That's ridiculous. If they lived "high on the hog" then why are they almost always sitting on that set in Blue Eye? I will say it again: IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEND IN MONEY THEN DON'T AND TURN OFF THE TV. Oh, yes; Laurie has bleached hair, a sure sign of wealth. My new hair dye kit was $8.
