Jim Bakker???

Is Jim Bakker still planning to set up camp in Branson? Where is he going to be?

I have real mixed feelings about the idea, I know he's forgiven, but not sure if I'm ready to see him back in the spot light.

He has. He has a cafe over by the Mansion America. We have had friends attend his Sunday afternoon meetings and went with mixed feelings as well but feel there has been a change. They were quite impressed. Granted I would have mixed emotions too but considering a visit sometime.

I wish I too, could with a true heart, believe he wouldnt scam me.

I used to watch his TV show...cause I loved the singing...it was something new for me, as I had never seen anything like him, before I moved to MO....and I loved the music.

I really liked the message they were giving out...and then, they were caught with their hands in the plate.....nuff for me.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Bransoncutie -

I too have been there, and blown it, and been forgiven to go on and serve God - HIS grace is unending - unfortunately OUR grace isn't as forgiving, those around us don't forget like God does.

I do believe Jim Bakker has changed, and I believe he can still do alot of good work for God - I'm not questioning that - but I feel like he is setting himself up, why put yourself back into the center of the temptation that caused you to stumble the first time?

I am keeping him and his ministry in my prayers - I can only imagine that the media isn't going to be very forgiving the second time around - if he's 10 pounds overweight they're going to remind us that it's sinful to be a glutton, the road he's taking isn't going to be an easy one.

May God's Grace & Glory shine!

Back to my origional question - Where is he holding his Bible study? Is it just in the am, or available in the evenings also?

His Bible Study right now is on Sunday afternoon at 2:30 at the Study City Cafe, right across from Mansion America. I believe plans are to eventually hold them every day, and at different times. The place is almost filled to capacity now, so probably will have to add another time soon.
