Televangelist Jim Bakker is in a legal and financial bind after he began selling a silver solution that he claims can kill the coronavirus and heal those who have been infected.
Not only has Bakker been sued but he’s also been cut off by credit card processing companies which have forced him to beg his viewers to send him money through checks instead of credit cards.
Bakker goes on to say that he could be forced to “file for bankruptcy” unless they purchase his products.
I’m just sad to see what’s happening to America,” Bakker said. “We are living in the final days, and if we go the wrong direction, America is through. You have to use a check [to donate or purchase products]. Your products are going to come to you. Every one of them will come right to your house, and if we can’t, we are going to refund. I will sell parts of the buildings at Morningside in the long run if you give me a chance. Don’t let me have to file for bankruptcy.”
“They’re already bleeding us to death, and now we’re going to have to pay lawyers that will bleed you to death,” . “I know [my critics] are watching me right now, and they’re having a ball. They’re having a ball, and they’re saying, ‘Wow, we’ve whipped Jim Bakker finally’ … I’ll tell you what, you all may want my head on a platter, and you may get it, but I’ll be gone to Heaven, and you’re not going to win. You’re not going to win because I’m 80 years old, and I don’t need to win. I need to please God, and that’s what I’m going to do the rest of my life.”
Tough break for Jim.
