On Order



Jim Bakker was once the leading proponent of the philosophy that promised, "God wants you to be rich." But after his ministry fell apart and he was convicted and sentenced to federal prison, he studied Scriptures and examined his previous prosperity theology. What he discovered appalled him. He had been preaching false doctrine for years and had led many astray.
