Here we go again. This time former employees are coming forward with allegations of serious wrong doing behind the scenes at the Swaggart Ministries. According to these witnesses, the JSM leadership, including Jimmy and Frances Swaggart, are involved in shrouding the ministry in secrecy so as to keep hidden from public view the spiritual abuses they've been practicing.

I would like to say to Jimmy Swaggart . Thanks for going back to preaching. Stay with the King James. My wife and I had the opportunity to be in 2 of the fall camp mettings . I believe If you would fellowship with ministies like TBN ,Binny Hinn. Joyce Meyers,Kenneth Copeland and Richard Roberts. Your ministry would grow and you will be Blessed!
Do you also like Swaggart's getting busted (more than once) with hookers? What about his CLUELESS, shrill and hate-filled wife? What about his entire family's constant condemning and judging of others? What about his constant begging for money? I am not one to speak for Jesus,but would Jesus do these things....i think not! And before i get slammed for being non-religious, it is not true...I am a Unitarian and belive in God!

I really do not understand which Bible,(if any at all )some of these preachers and churches are using? I heard a Pastor made a statement a couple weeks ago Saying the sabbath is everyday. I know God does not Change and He cannot Lie.....If God specifically says the SEVENTH day is the SABBATH DAY why are people teaching otherwise?

I just recenty happened to turn on SBN broadcasting and I have to say I think Jimmy Swaggart is a very talented singer and piano player and his facial exprfessins show he seems to mean what he sings. I now he is rich but remember he's a songwriter, singer and a book writer who for 50 years has sold those to the public so he could afford his homes and cars.

As to the salaries to his family and staff that is paid by donations, I agree it is much waste that could be GIVEN TO THE CHURCH AND CHARITY AND THE NETWORK - He and his son and grandson are millionaires, though I do think they must spend a lot of time traveling,singing etc.- enough is
enough. As or any sins they'd done we all make mistakes, and his singing touches my heart like no other has so he's doing something right!!

got wings on your back, do you? We are all sinners. We all make mistakes. Jimmie and his family are responsible for the errors that others make. They are trying to do God's work. We are humans. We make mistakes. Why would they not try to deal with their internal problems privately? Dont you in your family? A church is like a family, a community.
As for asking for money, how else are they to raise the funds except they make people aware of the needs of the ministry and make time available for people to help if they want to. It is kind of tiring to go through it every month. There is a pressure to believe God and wait for people to be touched by God to help the ministry.
My family gives tithes and offerings and buys tapes and commentaries and bibles and help send the spanish bibles to south America. I do it to do our share or part, to further the gospel and see souls reached, saved, healed and delivered from sin's hold. Not all are called to be missionaries and go. But we can give of our time money and talents to God's service by helping Jimmie Swaggart do God's will and get the word out about the cross and what was done there. We can share in his ministry by giving. God Bless them. They need it with Donnie and Gabe. I cannot believe he would leave either of them in charge when he is gone. The best speaker in the place is Loren Larson and he hardly gets enough time to preach and teach on air.

Please, people, get educated about the Bible. I am a Messianic Jew who grew up in Orthodox Judaism. I had to memorize scripture in Hebrew. Below is a copy of Acts Chapter 1 out of the original King James Bible ("The Original King James Bible Online"). See if you can read it.

1 The former treatise haue I made, O Theophilus, of al that Iesus began both to doe and teach,
2 Untill the day in which hee was taken vp, after that he through the holy Ghost had giuen commaundements vnto the Apostles, whom he had chosen.
3 To whom also he shewed himselfe aliue after his passion, by many infallible proofes, being seene of them fourty dayes, and speaking of the things perteining to the kingdome of God:
4 And being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Hierusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye haue heard of me.
5 For Iohn truely baptized with water, but ye shall be baptized with the holy Ghost, not many dayes hence.
6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore againe the kingdome to Israel?
7 And he said vnto them, It is not for you to knowe the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his owne power.
8 But ye shall receiue power after that the holy Ghost is come vpon you, and ye shall be witnesses vnto me, both in Hierusalem, and in all Iudea, and in Samaria, and vnto the vttermost part of the earth.
9 And when hee had spoken these things, while they beheld, hee was taken vp, and a cloud receiued him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heauen, as he went vp, behold, two men stood by them in white apparell,
11 Which also said, Yee men of Galililee, why stand yee gazing vp into heauen? This same Iesus, which is taken vp from you into heauen, shall so come, in like maner as yee haue seene him goe into heauen.
12 Then returned they vnto Hierusalem, from the mount called Oliuet, which is from Hierusalem a Sabbath dayes iourney.
13 And when they were come in, they went vp into an vpper roome, where abode both Peter & Iames, & Iohn, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, Iames the sonne of Alpheus, and Simon Zelotes, and Iudas the brother of Iames.
14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Iesus, and with his brethen.
15 ¶ And in those dayes Peter stood vp in the mids of the disciples, and said,(The number of names together were about an hundred and twentie)
16 Men and brethren, This Scripture must needs haue beene fulfilled, which the holy Ghost by the mouth of Dauid spake before concerning Iudas, which was guide to them şt took Iesus.
17 For hee was numbred with vs, and had obtained part of this ministerie.
18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity, and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the mids, and all his bowels gushed out.
19 And it was knowen vnto all the dwellers at Hierusalem, insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.
20 For it is written in the booke of Psalmes, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: And his Bishopricke let another take.
21 Wherefore of these men which haue companied with vs all the time that the Lord Iesus went in and out among vs,
22 Beginning from the baptisme of Iohn, vnto that same day that he was taken vp from vs, must one be ordained to be a witnesse with vs of his resurrection.
23 And they appointed two, Ioseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Iustus, and Matthias.
24 And they prayed, and said, Thou Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,
25 That hee may take part of this ministerie and Apostleship, from which Iudas by transgression fell, that hee might goe to his owne place.
26 And they gaue foorth their lots, and the lot fell vpon Matthias, and hee was numbred with the eleuen Apostles.

" touch not my anointed do my prophets no harm"not our place to say a word, God takes care of His own. I personally like to think what a pastor, preacher, teacher, or what ever should be none of any ones business. What's in spirit is in spirit what's flesh is flesh!! I'm almost positive if you all picked your favorite preacher and followed him around not leaving his side for just two weeks, they would no longer be your favorite! We all have skeletons in our closet and think every one else is worse than our own! But their is no big or little sin.sin is sin. Adultery is no more a sin than over eating! Think about with Thanksgiving on its way! Stop looking thru your carnal eyes!! God is in compete control of this whole thing

A bunch of mis-educated hicks from Hillbilly bible colleges preaching “give me your money” and god will pay you back. Hypocrites who live like royalty while fleecing old retired people living on social security. Divorce, adultery, greed all in the name of religion. It just never ends.

I sent money to JSM to further God's word but have never felt at ease doing so. I feel God is telling me to feed the hungry and that is what I will do now. I will Let My Light Shine and be the instrument God meant me to be.

Hey, Jesus doesn't exist outside of the bible. There's no evidence that Christ lived at all. There was nothing found anywhere to actually prove he was born. No corrorborating evidence of ANY kind. It's all made up.
