Jim Bakker



Founder, PTL (Praise The Lord) network. Jailed after being convicted of overselling timeshares to a hotel on the PTL grounds.

Has since denounced the prosperity gospel. Has genuinely repented and changed.

Unfortunately, since his release from jail, he has associated himself with Rick Joyner, touting the latter's revival theories.

Appears to lack discernment necessary to tell apart orthodoxy from heresy.
