But suppose this son has a son who sees all the sins his father commits, and though he sees them, he does not do such things. Ez 18:14
High power churchdom. A fall into disgrace. A family split apart. Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker once had an empire in the Christian world that included churches, a television network, and a theme park. Then, it all came apart at the seams as one man’s sins were brought to light.
I hadn’t thought much about all of this in years. I remember a bit about the great awe of the Bakker family. I remember a little about the scandals and fall. For some reason, what I remember most is a t-shirt that had fake eyelashes on it and a smear of blue and black below them with a lipstick print in the middle that said, "I just ran into Tammy Faye." I guess I don’t remember much because it really no longer matters to me, except to find ways to distance myself from this brand of Christianity.
