  1. I do not see anything about the Swaggarts the way you see them. I have listened to them and I have listened to the Message of the Cross.
    I do not know why people like you make it their life’s work to tear down another brother in Christ.
    I want to know one thing do you believe Jimmy Swaggart is saved?

    1. Hi Doris – Thanks for your comment. It is my life’s work to “contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.” (Jude 1:3). It is scriptural to point out doctrinal errors that are publically proclaimed by false teachers. I would encourage you to look at this article: http://www.christiananswerman.com/judging-exposing-error-and-naming-names/ and also at this video: http://www.christiananswerman.com/what-if/ It is out of love and concern for others that I devote myself to this, for I have seen first hand the spiritual and emotional damage that can come from Swaggartism. Please take the time to view the articles on this site and prayerfully ask God to show you if you have been led astray. Since you feel it is wrong to “tear down another brother in Christ,” I suggest you review my article entitled Swaggart Judges Christian Ministers found here: http://www.christiananswerman.com/swaggart-attacks-christian-ministers/ and ask yourself why you do not scold Jimmy Swaggart for his defamation of other ministers, a charge he has been found guilty of in a court of law. You are in my prayers as you follow Christ. I hope you will read and consider carefully the articles on this site. I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

  2. Thanks for your reply. Just to let you know a little about me and the manner in which I found this website &my salvation. My huband and I were saved in 1991, 2 weeks apart. We were saved and attended & became members of a Southern Baptist Church. We were both slaves to drugs and alcohol, however, a person could not tell by looking at us. When we got saved we were both immediately delivered from the above-mention sins and enslavement.
    I was raised by Godly, born again parents and my husband was a child of an alcoholic and an enabler.
    At any rate, I knew the Word of God from a child. My dad was a soul winner on his own(as he called himself…..a preacher in shoes).
    I was not all that familiar with Jimmy Swaggart until he had his problems in the late 80’s. No matter what his problems were, I still believe he has won thousands to the Lord Jesus.
    I want you to know that I am a follower of Jesus the Christ and not a man or an organization or a denomination. I consider myself to be a person that checks out what I am told by the Word to make sure I believe it is TRUTH. I attempt to try the spirits by what the Word of God teaches. I do stick to the KJV of the Bible , I stay away from the other versions. As I said in a prior comment, a word like FOR can change the entire meaning of a passage.
    There is a woman on another website(which shows I have attempted to find info on the Swaggarts) named T.Heim, this person gave me your website.
    At any rate, I will read the info you linked. No matter what. I give time, Money and talents to The Lord not a man and I believe the Lord looks upon the heart of a person . Not WHAT they do, but WHY they do what they do.
    Thanks,

    1. Hi Doris – So glad to hear you have an open mind, as the Berean’s, “who searched the scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.” This site is for you. I hope you find it a help. God bless you as you walk with Jesus.

  3. I believe Jesus died on the cross for out sins and rose three days later and he’s coming back soon. I believe Jesus paid for our sins when he gave his life on the cross. All things are possible for those who believe. I believe when you put your faith in the finished work of the cross and Get saved then all things become new all the old passes away. So we are Resurrected with Christ. Then we get Babtisted with water. In the book of acks it tells us about being Filled with the Holy Spirit leads and guides us in all truth. After we’re saved and get babtisted with warter for remission of our sin’s then were to get filled with the Holy Spirit as the of the Lord gives the utterance. You will feel words that you don’t understand coming from the uttermost part of your being. You have to yeild totally and you will start speaking in other toungs as the spirit of the lord gives the utterance. The Holy spirit helps us to walk right and live Right. He’s our conferter and concealer. He’ll help you and when he come in he will never leave you. Unless you say I don’t want you anymore..That’s something you don’t want to do. Because the Holy spirit leads us and guides us in all truth. He will always lead you to the word of God. He lives inside of you. He’s who convict’s you before you get saved. The finished work of the cross is the answer you seek.When you put your faith in the Finished work of the cross .and get saved your set free from sins and the law of death And set free from bondages and we’re healed bye the strips of Jesus.Then the sin nature doesn’t have dominion over you any more. We’re human and we all fall short to the Glory of God.IF you mess up ask for forgiveness. We all do stupid little things .We’re to say the Lords pray everyday. After your filled with the Holy spirit. Pray in touges .The message of the cross is the answer to every problem we have. Pray exsepting to be healed and you will be faith moves mountains. After your Reborn like the Bible says ask and you shall Receive.There’s nothing we can do to earn or way to heaven. If your church has Rules or are still in the law leave that church. Churches that tell you you can’t wear makeup or cut your hair. Or wear long dresses is still in the law. Of cource we’re surpose to cover our self’s but some churches go over board..I was Raised bye a penocoastal preacher. Who changed before he died. He said if its not in the Bible its not right. They went all over the world preaching the Gospel and took and interpreter. My Grandpa

    1. My Grandparents loved Jimmy Swaggart. When that happened in the eighty’s. I ask Grandpa what he thought about Jimmy Swaggart now. He said God forgave him and so do I we all fall short to the Glory of God that’s why you better ask for forgiveness of your sins every night because know one is perfect that walked the face of the earth exsept Jesus Christ. I love the Swaggarts they have taught me a lot. SBN is the Church for The world.

      1. Hi Angie, please read all the articles on the site regarding Swaggart and watch the video, The Swaggart Seduction. Then you can inform your grandparents that Jimmy continued in sin after his televised repentance show. I was pastoring an Assembly of God church when Swaggart got caught the first time. I told my congregation the same thing, that if he had repented we must forgive him. However, he continued in sin, showing he had not truly repented and turned from his sin, for he was caught with prostitutes two more times after that. Since getting caught with the last prostitute in the mid 90s he did not repent, but arrogantly told his church, “God told me it is none of your business.” Forgiveness does not come without repentance. Furthermore, there is the continued sin of his viscous Demagoguery of nearly all churches except his and then there is also the matter of him spreading false doctrines.

        1. Greetings Mark, you stated Swaggart was caught with prostitutes two more times” after the first time. I am aware of only 1988 and then 1991, I didn’t know it three times he was caught, can you give me the third time date.

          Blessings,

          1. Hi James, In 1995 Swaggart was caught again when he was pulled over by police in a red-light district. He was stopped for suspicion of soliciting prostitutes, but was not charged. Pornographic magazines were found by police under his seat. As I recall, in the Swaggart Seduction Video on this site there is a clip of the officer involved in the stop speaking about this.

    2. Hi Angie, Thank you for your comment. If Jimmy Swaggart taught what you just said, there would be little to disagree with. Hopefully if you read all the articles on this site you will realize that he goes way beyond what you said. I would point out to you however that nowhere does the Bible tell us, “put your faith in the finished work of the cross.” Rather it instructs us to put our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ who died on the cross for the remission of our sins. That is the proper balance and emphasis – our living relationship with Christ. God Bless,

  4. Swaggart can be forgiven,but he should not be a Pastor. Pastors are to be without reproach ( scandal). Not without human sin,but without SCANDAL. He should step down,be IN the church,but not the Pastor.
