Jim Bakker models True Christian™ mercy by forgiving those who got upset and had him thrown in prison. Bakker forgives the 116,000 “Praise The Lord” cable show followers he defrauded out of $158 million, those who charged him with the eight counts of mail fraud, 15 counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy, and the judge who sentenced him to 45 years in prison. Miraculously, he was offered a new sentence hearing three years later, and it was determined by Judge Potter, himself a Christian, that Christians are unfairly persecuted, lampooned as “saps from money-grubbing preachers or priests,” and so his sentence was reduced to eight years. He was released after five. Still, he lost his reputation, his tv show, his mistress, and some $500,000. He now sells buckets of freeze-dried food to help people feel less afraid in face of the impending doom he is convincing people to expect.
