Listen and See If You Agree Jim Bakker Is a Changed Man

by | Nov 13, 2015 | Blogs, The Strang Report

Several weeks ago I had the pleasure of being on the Jim Bakker Show. I wrote in the Strang Report how much I felt that Jim Bakker had changed, and it received a strong reaction from my readers.  

During my visit, Jim showed me around his impressive Morningside complex, and I recorded our conversation as we walked and drove around. At the time, I couldn’t take notes and I wasn’t sure what we would discuss. Interestingly, Jim filmed our little tour because he thought it might be interesting. He later broadcast some of it on his television show.  

I remember at one point in our conversation while we were standing in the hallway of Lori’s (Jim’s wife) House—a home on the Morningside grounds that provides a place of ministry, love, rest, learning, fellowship and caring with its main goal of saving babies and caring for their mothers—Jim became very contemplative, and I realized I was recording something very special. He was pitching me on writing a story about the “behind-the-scenes” people who have made Christian television what it is.  

He then began talking about his staff at PTL, and one conversation morphed into the next in an interesting stream of consciousness. He also talked about Lori’s House, his feelings on abortion, what he believes about the end times, and how he studied the Book of Revelation and Daniel while he was in prison. He also spoke about the purpose of his life.  

Of course, Jim knew I was recording the message, but it wasn’t an official interview. I don’t think he was trying to impress me—this was genuine. I felt it gave a little insight into his heart and ministry.  

I decided to include it on my podcast for today’s Strang Report (Friday, Nov. 13). I’ve included it here, feeling that those who read the newsletter would enjoy listening to this podcast.

The podcast is also called The Strang Report. I issue two each week. Only rarely are they on the same topic as the print e-newsletter. The listenership of my podcast is growing weekly. If you haven’t signed up or downloaded them from iTunes, today is a good day to do it.

When you listen to this informal interview I think you’ll agree with me that Jim is a changed man. He is just sharing his heart. See if you don’t agree.
