But when the Gulf War started back in 1991, I happened to come across him one night on the 700 Club. He was talking about the war and emphasizing how this could be the beginning of Armegeddon. And then he started pimping his book about the End of Days. That's when he lost me for good. I'm thinking, this guy doesn't really care if this could be Armegeddon, he just wants us to buy his book.
I agree Chip. I really don't know what has gotten into this man over the last several years. I was never an avid follwer of the 700 Club, but I do have several of his teaching series on tape. They were excellent.
But he sometimes does not practice what he preaches.
But as Christians, we are told that our "eyes" are not to be on men.
I have some of Swaggert's teaching series from back in the late 70's and early 80's. Also very good. But what amazed me was when he "fell" (along with some of these other televangelists) that the flock scattered in disillusionment. Their eyes were on the wrong person IMO.
