The Greater Damnation: 
Swaggart or Hitchens?  

by 
Karen Pansler-Lam, J.D.

Who will receive the greater damnation –

the hypocrite or the fool?

 

Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart

or

Atheist Christopher Hitchens?

 

 

Jimmy Swaggart is a well-known Pentecostal pastor, teacher, gospel singer, pianist and televangelist. Before his great fall, Swaggart held evangelistic crusades around the world; and his television ministry aired nationally and internationally.  In 1988, Swaggart became a household name when it was revealed he solicited Debra Murphree, a New Orleans prostitute. On February 21, 1988, Swaggart publicly and tearfully confessed his transgression and said it was a sin of the past.  However, in 1991 he was found in the company of prostitute Rosemary Garcia when he was pulled over on the wrong side of the road in Indio, California. He was also trying to hide pornographic magazines under the car seat. Rather than truly repent and ask forgiveness, Swaggart arrogantly told those at Family Worship Center: “The Lord told me it’s flat none of your business.”

 

Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart refuses to repent of adultery and lewdness and lasciviousness. Instead, Swaggart arrogantly excuses his past whoremongering by alleging he did not know and understand sanctification. This is made very clear in his article in The Evangelist: "Can a Believer Live a Victorious Life If He Doesn't Understand the Cross Respecting Sanctification?"  Jimmy Swaggart is a hypocrite.

 

Christopher Hitchens is a well-known atheist author and journalist whose career spans more than four decades. Before getting cancer of the esophagus, Hitchens crusaded against God on talk shows and lecture circuits and was a champion of the “New Atheism.” Hitchens publicly acknowledges his love of cigarettes and openly confesses to heavy drinking, or drunkenness. 

 

Hitchens declares that if anyone says he converted before his death, it is a lie.  Atheist Christopher Hitchens refuses to repent of his belief that there is no God. Christopher Hitchens is a fool.

 

Who will receive the greater damnation – the hypocrite or the fool?

 

Both are already sentenced to eternal damnation... unless they repent.

 

Swaggart and Hitchens will be hellmates.

 

 

The Dark Side of Jimmy Swaggart

 

For years, Jimmy Swaggart was a hard-preaching evangelist thundering against the sins of the flesh.  He roared like a lion against “whores” and “whoremongers” and wildly waved the Bible.  However, while he was ferociously attacking and exposing Marvin Gorman, Jim Bakker, and other whoremongers and adulterers, he was a-whoring after pornography and prostitutes!

 

O ye hypocrite, Jimmy Swaggart!

 

The Assemblies of God hierarchy defrocked Swaggart and removed his credentials and ministerial license because he would not submit to their church discipline.  So, Swaggart became an independent, non-denominational Pentecostal minister.

 

Many years ago, I wrote Jimmy Swaggart admonishing him to repent of adultery and lewdness and lasciviousness. And I’ve often questioned…"Has Jimmy Swaggart truly repented?"

 

In October 2010, my mother was watching one of Swaggart’s crusade classics televised on Sonlife Broadcasting Network (SBN), the latest Jimmy Swaggart Ministries media outreach.  In the back of mind I questioned…"Has Jimmy Swaggart truly repented?"

 

The crusade was from the early 1980s – before his great fall.  In his sermon, Swaggart told the story about a young man who was in bondage to pornography.  Swaggart tearfully cried claiming this young man was saved and truly loved the Lord with all his heart, but he just couldn’t be set free from this filth.  My question was answered…Jimmy Swaggart never truly repented because he excuses or justifies his sin.

 

Of course, this tearful story contradicted all his loud condemnations of “whores” and “whoremongers.” This “story” was the true story of Jimmy Swaggart.  According to him, all other whoremongers were going to hell, but the man in this “story” – Jimmy - was saved, therefore, free from eternal damnation. 

 

O ye hypocrite, Jimmy Swaggart!

 

Swaggart’s hypocrisy is a perfect example of Matthew 7:

 

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then thou shalt see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

 

Specifically, Jimmy Swaggart was judging whoremongers and adulterers Marvin Gorman and Jim Bakker, yet he was a-whoring after pornography and prostitutes!

 

O ye hypocrite!

 

Nevertheless, if Jimmy Swaggart truly repents, God will forgive him.  And I will forgive him.  However, Swaggart refuses true repentance...

 

Jimmy Swaggart excuses his past sins of lewdness and lasciviousness and adultery by alleging he did not know and understand sanctification.

 

In The Evangelist (March 2011), Swaggart writes in  "Can a Believer Live a Victorious Life If He Doesn't Understand the Cross Respecting Sanctification?"  http://www.jsm.org/documents/March2011.pdf; page 9):

 

Back in the mid 1950’s, if I remember the period of time correctly, a particular Preacher was drawing one of the largest crowds in the world, and in fact, seeing a tremendous work for God accomplished.  Many were being healed and many were being Saved.

 

At a point in time, the dear brother was found to be having a problem with alcohol.

 

Now many would say, as a result of this revelation, that he was a hypocrite and that his Ministry was not valid. None of that is correct!

 

His Ministry was valid.  God was using him, and greatly so; however, he was trying to live for the Lord without understanding the Cross of Christ relative to Sanctification.  In other words, he simply did not know how the Holy Spirit worked.  So, he tried to beat this thing himself, but, as untold millions have found out, it cannot be done that way.  There can be victory, but only God’s Way, which is the Cross of Christ, which then gives the Holy Spirit latitude to work in one’s life.

 

The tragedy then, as by and large is the tragedy now, was that very few preachers knew and understood the Message of the Cross as it regarded Sanctification. Respecting Salvation, yes! Sanctification, no!

 

What Swaggart is really saying is…

 

“At a point in time, I was exposed as a-whoring after pornography and prostitutes.

 

Now many would say, as a result of this revelation, that I was a hypocrite and my Ministry was not valid.  None of that is correct!

 

My ministry was valid.  God used me, and greatly so, even though I was an adulterer and whoremonger and hypocrite.  But, it really wasn't my fault because I didn’t understand sanctification.

 

The tragedy was that I did not know and understand the Message of the Cross as it regarded Sanctification.  Respecting Salvation, yes!  Sanctification, no!”

 

Jimmy Swaggart refuses to repent and excuses his whoremongering. Nowhere in the Bible does God bless and condone the ministry of whoremongers and hypocrites and adulterers.  Contrary to Swaggart’s arrogant claim, their ministry is not valid.  Furthermore, Paul makes it clear in his first letter to Timothy that church leaders must be men of holiness and righteousness.

 

But Swaggart arrogantly argues contrary to Scripture that drunkards and whoremongers and adulterers are qualified to be ministers.

 

Has he not read 1 John 3:8, 9?

 

He that committeth sin is of the devil;

for the devil sinneth from the beginning.

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested,

that he might destroy the works of the devil. 

 

Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin;

 for his seed remaineth in him:

and he cannot sin,

because he is born of God.

 

Even if you profess to be a Christian, if you’re a slave of sin, you’re not saved – you’re a child of the devil.

 

You can no more be a Christian drunkard than you can be a Christian murderer.  You’re either a Christian or you’re a drunkard.  And a drunkard is a child of the devil.

 

You cannot be a Christian whoremonger.  You’re either a Christian or a whoremonger.  And a whoremonger is a child of the devil.

 

Has Swaggart not read 1 Corinthians 6:9-11?

 

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

Be not deceived:

neither fornicators,

nor idolaters,

nor adulterers,

nor effeminate,

nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

Nor thieves,

nor covetous,

nor drunkards,

nor revilers,

nor extortioners,

shall inherit the kingdom of God.

 

And such were some of you: but ye are washed,

but ye are sanctified,

but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,

and by the Spirit of our God.

 

A Pentecostal preacher who preached against whores and whoremongers but didn’t understand sanctification?

 

A Pentecostal evangelist who didn’t understand “sanctify”?

 

Sanctify  Latin sanctus, sacred, holy, + facere, make.  To make holy, as a person; purify or free from sin; also, to set apart as sacred; consecrate. 

The New Century Dictionary of the English Language

 

Again, is Pentecostal evangelist Swaggart claiming he didn’t understand that salvation is conditioned on repentance: “Go, and sin no more” (John 8:11)?  Pentecostals have always preached true repentance is turning from self-willed sin to obeying God’s will - “Ye must be born again.” Being born again means we get a new heart.   Our heart is born anew. 

 

Obedience to God’s will leads to sanctification or the purification of the heart by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. 

 

When we are born again, we obey God’s commands. For example, Paul commands us: "Flee fornication" (1 Corinthians 6:18).  It is our duty to run from temptation, not pursue it!  And when we are weak but truly desire with all our heart and strength to flee, the Holy Spirit empowers us to resist!

 

But instead of obeying the Biblical command to flee fornication, Swaggart pursued pornography and prostitutes!

 

Irrefutably, the Bible talks about sanctification in clear language. It is written:

 

3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:

4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:

7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5, 7

 

In plain language, the Bible commands us – including Swaggart – to possess our body in sanctification and honor, not in lust.  

 

Moreover, Swaggart was reared in a Pentecostal home and an Assemblies of God church.

 

Likewise, I was reared in a Pentecostal home and the Assemblies of God.  As a child, we were repeatedly warned in Sunday school, children’s church, and Vacation Bible School about the enslaving power of sin: do not taste booze (you may become a drunkard); do not look at dirty pictures even out of curiosity, do not curse, do not lie, and other sins.  In other words, be careful what you see, what you hear, what you do, where you go, and what you say. And such warnings were reaffirmed in children’s songs such as “O Be Careful”:

 

O be careful little eyes what you see

O be careful little eyes what you see

There's a Father up above

And He's looking down in love

So, be careful little eyes what you see

 

O be careful little ears what you hear

O be careful little ears what you hear

There's a Father up above

And He's looking down in love

So, be careful little ears what you hear

 

O be careful little hands what you do

O be careful little hands what you do

There's a Father up above

And He's looking down in love

So, be careful little hands what you do

 

O be careful little feet where you go

O be careful little feet where you go

There's a Father up above

And He's looking down in love

So, be careful little feet where you go

 

O be careful little mouth what you say

O be careful little mouth what you say

There's a Father up above

And He's looking down in love

So, be careful little mouth what you say

But Jimmy Swaggart refused to heed Biblical counsel and warnings. He willfully disobeyed God’s Word. 

 

And Swaggart refuses to repent:  “The Lord told me it’s flat none of your business.”

 

Swaggart’s Willful Disobedience

 

 

Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth;

fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection,

evil concupiscence,

and covetousness, which is idolatry:

For which things’ sake the wrath of God

cometh on the children of disobedience.

Colossians 3:5,6

 

Swaggart was repeatedly warned about the enslaving power of sin – but he willfully ignored the danger.  He obeyed self-will rather than God’s will.  It was really a battle of wills – God’s will vs. Swaggart’s will.

 

When Swaggart cries he wrestled with “this thing” for many years, he is really saying “I’ve wrestled with God over this thing for years.  God convicts me over and over and over again, but I will not give it up.  I will hold on to it.”

 

Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears,

ye do always resist the Holy Ghost:

as your fathers did, so do ye.

Acts 7:51

 

Let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit,

perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

2 Corinthians 7:1

 

For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth,

there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation,

which shall devour the adversaries.

Hebrews 10:26, 27

 

For this ye know,

that no whoremonger,

nor unclean person,

nor covetous man, who is an idolater,

hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

 

Let no man deceive you with vain words:

for because of these things cometh the wrath of God

upon the children of disobedience.

 

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness,

but rather reprove them.  

Ephesians 5:5,6,11

 

But God be thanked,

that ye were the servants of sin,

but ye have obeyed from the heart

that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

 

Being then made free from sin,

ye became the servants of righteousness.

Romans 6:17

 

The Bible tells us that we must obey from the heart.  We must have a pure heart…

 

Blessed are the pure in heart:

for they shall see God.

Matthew 5:8

 

For from within,

out of the heart of men,

proceed evil thoughts,

adulteries,

fornications,

murders,

Thefts,

covetousness,

wickedness,

deceit,

lasciviousness,

an evil eye,

blasphemy,

pride,

foolishness:

All these evil things come from within,

and defile the man.

Mark 7:21-23

 

God’s first commandment is to love Him with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind, and with all our strength.

 

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,

and with all thy soul,

and with all thy mind,

and with all thy strength:

this is the first commandment.

Mark 12:30

 

And when we love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, we will flee fornication.  We will not run after prostitutes! Unquestionably, when we love God wholeheartedly, there will be no room in our heart for lewdness or lasciviousness or adultery.  If we truly love God, we will not go a-whoring after pornography and prostitutes.

 

The Bible boldly declares that our body is not our own.  Our body belongs to God. Our body is the temple of God.  Our body must be pure and undefiled so that the Holy Spirit may dwell in us.

 

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?  If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” (1 Corinthians 3:16, 17).

 

“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?  For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1 Corinthians 6: 19, 20).

 

Jimmy Swaggart must stop making excuses for his willful disobedience.  And Jimmy’s wife, Frances, also must stop making excuses for her husband’s willful disobedience.

 

Frances whitewashes Jimmy’s filthy sins on her broadcast, Frances and Friends.  Like her husband, Frances openly condemns sin as sin, but when the subject of pornography is brought up, she calls it a “powerful addiction”- a term from psychology.  Frances publicly excuses her husband’s lusting after pornography as an addiction, not a sin.

 

O ye hypocrite, Frances Swaggart!

 

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

 

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord,

shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;

but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

 

Many will say to me in that day,

Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?

and in thy name have cast out devils?

and in thy name done many wonderful works?

 

And then will I profess unto them,

I never knew you:

depart from me,

ye that work iniquity.

Matthew 7:20 - 24

 

Clearly, Matthew 7:20-24 teaches us that good works – even preaching and teaching in Jesus’ name – will not save us from eternal damnation. We must repent and live a life of holiness and righteousness.  Jesus Christ says to hypocrites:  “Depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”  Hypocrites are condemned to eternal damnation.

 

Swaggart is not innocent. 

 

Swaggart is not blameless. 

 

Yet he justifies, excuses, vindicates, pardons, defends, absolves, and whitewashes his adultery and whoremongering.

 

Swaggart arrogantly refuses to repent: “The Lord told me it’s flat none of your business.”

 

 

The Dark Side of Christopher Hitchens

 

The fool hath said in his heart,

There is no God.

Psalm 14:1

 

Christopher Hitchens is known for his love of cigarettes and booze.  He admits to drinking heavily.  And in 2003 he wrote that his daily intake of alcohol was enough “to kill or stun the average mule.”  Hitchens takes great pride in his bohemian lifestyle.  

 

In 2010 he was diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus.

 

Hitchens’ book, God Is Not Great, made him one of the major crusaders of the “new atheism.” Hitchens crusades against all religions – including Christianity.  In God Is Not Great, Hitchens contends…“above all, we are in need of a renewed Enlightenment, which will base itself on the proposition that the proper study of mankind is man and woman.”

 

Hitchens is walking in spiritual darkness and cannot see that he actually practices a religion - idolatry.  Hitchens worships man - himself.  He believes there is no higher power than man.  Hitchens is a fool.

 

Hitchens’ writing is mediocre for a man who worships his own intellect.  He has no brilliant original ideas…for centuries those who walk in spiritual darkness have called for “enlightenment.”

 

His mundane debates and mundane writings are narrow and restricted to lies and delusion.  And his greatest delusion is that there is no higher power than man.  But Hitchens is not omniscient, omnipotent, or omnipresent.

 

Hitchens is a fool…

 

God is all-knowing.

Hitchens is deceivable.

 

God is all-seeing.

Hitchens is blind.

 

God is all-powerful.

Hitchens is helpless.

 

Hitchens was raised in a nominally Christian home and went to Christian boarding schools.  So, he received a Christian education and is without excuse.

 

Moreover, Romans 1 tells us atheists are without excuse…

 

20: For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22: Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23: And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24: Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26:
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust
one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28: And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave
them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29: Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30: Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31: Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

&data=/texts/english/modeng/parsed&tag=public&part=1&division=div1

 

Hitchens is willfully blind to the overwhelming evidence of the majesty and glory of the Creator and his Creation.

 

Professing to be wise, Hitchens is a fool: he worships man instead of God.  Hitchens is a hater of God, despiteful, proud, and a boaster.

 

Deluded by his vain and dark mind, Hitchens foolishly  imagines he is enlightened.

 

Take heed therefore that the light which is in 

thee be not darkness.

Luke 11:35

 

 

The Sobering Truth

   

Them that sin rebuke before all,

that others also may fear.

1 Timothy 5:20

 

Jimmy Swaggart is an arrogant hypocrite.

 

Christopher Hitchens is an arrogant atheist.

 

Both are already sentenced to eternal damnation... unless they repent.

 

Swaggart and Hitchens will be hellmates.

 

Both hate the truth.  Both are guilty of willful disobedience. Both have an evil heart.

 

Swaggart hides beneath the cloak of evangelist a corrupt and arrogant heart excusing his adultery and whoremongering.

 

Hitchens hides beneath the cloak of atheist a wicked and arrogant heart excusing his profane life. 

 

Both men shake their fists at Scriptural truth and live according to their own self-destructive lusts.  

 

If neither Swaggart nor Hitchens repent...who will receive the greater damnation?

 

The Bible – God’s Law - pronounces the awful judgment.  The answer is sobering…

 

Beware of the scribes,

which love to go in long clothing,

and love salutations in the marketplaces,

And the chief seats in the synagogues,

and the uppermost rooms at feasts.

 

Which devour widows' houses,

and for a pretence make long prayers:

these shall receive greater damnation.

Mark 12:38-40

 

According to God’s Law, Swaggart shall receive the greater damnation.

 

This warning and condemnation of the scribes describes modern televangelists: they love to wear expensive clothing, and love to enrich themselves by selling their merchandise in the marketplace under the guise of ministry, and love the chief seats on platforms and television, and beg for money, and for a pretence make long prayers.

 

Woe unto the televangelist who seeks his own worldly gain and honor more than God's glory!

 

Woe unto the televangelist who begs and robs the poor while he lives in a mansion and luxury!

 

And contrary to Swaggart’s arrogant lie that “The Lord told me it’s flat none of your business,” Scripture warns us to beware of false preachers who are filled with covetousness, greed, whoremongering, and other corruption.

 

Beware of false prophets,

which come to you in sheep’s clothing,

but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

 

Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit;

but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

 

A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit,

neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.  

 

Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit

is hewn down,

and cast into the fire.

 

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Matthew 7:15,17 - 20

 

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!

for ye are like unto whited sepluchres,

which indeed appear beautiful outward,

but are within full of dead men’s bones,

and of all uncleanness.

 

Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men,

but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

Matthew 23:27, 28

 

Beware of the televangelist who loves salutations in the marketplace and all his works he does to be seen of men.  Woe unto the televangelist who lifts up his name higher than the name of Christ and names his ministry after himself – Jimmy Swaggart Ministries…

 

He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory.

John 7:18

 

This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth,

and honoureth me with their lips;

but their heart is far from me.

Matthew 15:8

 

Beware of the televangelist whose heart is unclean with adultery and goes a-whoring after prostitutes and pornography…

 

But I say unto you,

That whosoever looketh on a woman

to lust after her hath committed

adultery with her already in his heart.

Matthew 5:28

 

What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body?

for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

1 Corinthians 6:16

 

Beware of the televangelist who uses his ministry as a house of merchandise - uses his platform for worldly gain and markets books, CDs, DVDs, and other material.  SBN is more correctly called JSSN – the Jimmy Swaggart Shopping Network...

 

Take these things hence;

make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.

John 2:16

 

Beware of the televangelist who devours widows' houses  and robs children of their rightful inheritance...

Beware of the televangelist who uses his ministry as a family business to increase his personal net worth and support his family’s lavish living…

 

What are the salaries of Jimmy, Frances, Donnie, and Gabriel Swaggart and other relations?

 

It is rumored Jimmy Swaggart is one of the wealthiest men in the Baton Rouge area. Here is an aerial view of his home…

 

Jimmy Swaggart's House

How many other luxurious homes are owned by JSM?

 

And what about Bluebonnet Towers owned by JSM? http://www.jsm.org/bluebonnet_towers.php  

 

How much real estate is owned by Jimmy Swaggart Ministries?

 

Beware of the televangelist whose heart is full of covetousness and greed and extortion and excess …

 

  To celebrate the Birthday of this Evangelist, of course, I ask for absolutely nothing for myself.  But I do ask for something for the cause of Christ.

   If this Ministry is a blessing to you, and you believe it’s a blessing to others, I’m going to ask you to celebrate the Birthday of this Evangelist by giving $76, or $176, or $576, or $1,076, etc.

The Evangelist March 2011

 

Of course, JSM is owned by Jimmy Swaggart.  In other words, when you give to JSM, you are giving the money to the Swaggart family business and increasing their net worth.

 

Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough,

and they are shepherds that cannot understand:

they all look to their own way,

every one for his gain, from his quarter.

Isaiah 56:11

 

Woe unto you, televangelists, hypocrites!

 

Woe unto you, greedy dogs!  For all this greed is committed in the name of Jesus Christ…

 

…these shall receive greater damnation

 

 

Repent Before It’s Too Late!

Both Swaggart and Hitchens need to repent before it’s too late.

Hitchens must repent of his willful blindness to the visible evidence all around him of a mighty God. 

 

Swaggart must repent of his a-whoring after pornography and prostitutes, covetousness, greed, self-glorification, arrogance, and other corruption.

 

God’s Law pronounces their sentence – eternal damnation.

 

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable,

and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers,

and idolaters, and all liars,

shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone.

Revelation 21:8

 

O arrogant hypocrite!  Jimmy Swaggart, repent before it’s too late! 

 

O arrogant fool!  Christopher Hitchens, repent before it’s too late! 

 

Alas, take heed, dear reader: Eternal damnation is pronounced upon all hypocrites and fools. And hypocrites will receive the greater damnation.  We must search our hearts.

 

O ye hypocrites and fools, humble yourselves before the Lord and ask for forgiveness! 

 

And turn from your wicked ways that you might have everlasting life instead of eternal damnation...

 

I am the light of the world:

he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,

but shall have the light of life

John 8:12

 

And whosever was not found written in the

book of life

was cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:15
