The Jimmy Swaggart Series
Part 6

Jimmy Swaggart's Expositor's "Bible": 
Doctrines of Devils

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly,
that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith,
giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Speaking lies in hypocrisy; 
having their conscience seared with a hot iron.
1Timothy 4:1,2

 

From his youth, because of his Pentecostal upbringing, Swaggart knew the Truth about sin and repentance.  But he defied the Truth.  He shook his fist at God and His Laws.  And as he wallowed in willful wickedness, he refused to heed the Holy Spirit’s call to repentance.  So, his willful wickedness darkened his heart, darkened his mind, and darkened his soul.   And his conscience was seared with a hot iron. 

 

Swaggart defied God’s Law and refused to repent of his filthy sins of a-whoring after pornography and prostitutes, greed, lies, deception and other abominations.  And he delighted in his hypocrisy.  He delighted in sitting at the table of the Lord, and sitting at the table of the devils. And as he sat at the table of the devils, they laughed and joked and persuaded Swaggart that he could serve God and serve Satan at the same time: 

“Jimmy, YOU are a great TV evangelist.  YOU do many good works in Jesus’ name.  YOU deserve pleasure. Besides…no one will find out.  And if you openly expose and rebuke other preacher whoremongers, YOU will be exalted.  Jimmy, YOU can fool everyone.”

So, Jimmy went out and sought the pleasures of the flesh in secret while openly exposing other preachers who went a-whoring. 

And Jimmy’s ministry continued to grow and grow and grow…

But one day in 1988, Jimmy’s disguise of self-righteousness was ripped off and his hideous hypocrisy was revealed. 

This was the great fall of Jimmy Swaggart. 

And in a desperate attempt to keep his moneymaking ministerial kingdom of mansions and other lavish living, he publicly repented.  However, many shook their heads in disgust and departed from following him. 

And Jimmy continued to sit at the table of the devils and harlots. 

And after he was again caught a-whoring in 1991, he lashed out at his followers:  “The Lord told me it’s flat none of your business.”

Jimmy desperately wanted to rebuild his ministerial kingdom to its former glory.  But how could he persuade men and women that even though he refused to truly repent, they should still follow him and lavish him with praise and money?

And Jimmy continued to sit at the table of the devils.  And the devils said to him:

“Jimmy, YOU can sin and be saved at the same time.  The Apostle Paul was a great apostle and a great sinner after conversion because he did not understand sanctification.  You must profess faith in the Object of the Cross!”

And in his own vain imagination, Jimmy believed he received a great revelation that he did not have to repent because of the new knowledge of Faith in the Object of the Cross.

And in his own vain imagination, Jimmy justified his sin and began to write his “Bible” of devilish doctrines to entice others to partake in deviltry and deceive them into believing that faith in the Object of the Cross will save and sanctify them.

And as the devils watched Jimmy feverishly writing his new revelation – The Expositor’s Study Bible- they laughed and laughed and laughed. 

 

Sitting at the Table of the Devils

 

The Apostle Paul warns us in his first letter to the Corinthians in 10:21…

 

Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils:

ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

 

Jesus calls us:  “Come and dine.”

 

And devils call us:  “Come and dine.”

 

But you cannot sit at the table of two masters.

 

You cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils.

 

You cannot partake of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

 

When Swaggart sat at the table of evil spirits, they seduced him with doctrines that tickled his ears.

 

Swaggart gave heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. 

 

 

Doctrine of Devils:

Faith in the OBJECT of the Cross

 

The cross is the central doctrine of the Gospel:  “Christ crucified.”  Without the cross, there is no salvation.  The cross speaks of the shedding of blood, “and without shedding of blood is no remission” (Hebrews 9:22).

 

Paul preaches the doctrine of the cross in his first letter to the Corinthians:

 

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness;

but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

1 Corinthians 1:18

 

Then Paul further explains the doctrine of the cross:

 

For I determined not to know any thing among you,

save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

1 Corinthians 2:2

 

The message of the cross is “Christ crucified.”  But we do not put our faith in the Object of the cross, we put our faith in Christ crucified on the cross. In other words, the cross is the symbol of Christ’s sacrifice.  The cross was the altar on which the Sacrificial Lamb of God offered up His life to atone for our sins.

 

But Swaggart preaches the doctrine of devils that the power is in the cross, not in Jesus’ blood.  He wickedly bids us to put our total faith in the Cross instead of in Jesus Christ.

Incidentally, in The Expositor’s Study Bible, Christ’s words are printed in black and Swaggart’s comments are printed in red to give them equal authority with Christ’s words.  Or is he giving his words preeminence over Christ’s words? However, in this message, Christ’s words are printed in red; Swaggart’s comments are printed in blue because they are not authoritative:

The Expositor’s Study Bible comments on Matthew 10:38…

38 And he who takes not his cross (total “Faith” in the Cross to the exclusion of everything else), and follows after Me (we can only follow Him by the “Way” of the Cross), is not worthy of Me (not worthy of the blessings afforded by the “victory” of the Cross)

Notice how Swaggart bids us to put total ‘Faith’ in the Cross to the exclusion of everything else.”  Total means whole.  So, if we put our total or whole faith in the cross, there is no faith left to put in Jesus. 

 

And Swaggart comments on Luke 9:23…

23 And He said to them all, If any man will come after Me (the criteria for Discipleship), let him deny himself (not asceticism as many think, but rather that one denies one’s own will-power, self-will, strength, and ability, depending totally on Christ), and take up his cross (the benefits of the Cross, looking exclusively to what Jesus did there to meet our every need) daily (this is so important, our looking to the Cross; that we must renew our Faith in what Christ has done for us, even on a daily basis, for Satan will ever try to move us away from the Cross as the Object of our Faith, which always spells disaster), and follow Me (Christ can be followed only by the Believer looking to the Cross, understanding what it accomplished, and by that means alone [Rom. 6:3-5,11,14; 8:1-2,11;1Cor.1:17-18,21,23;2:2;Gal.6:14;Eph.2:13-18;Col.2:14-15]).

This is a doctrine of devils:  “for Satan will ever try to move us away from the Cross as the Object of our Faith…Christ can be followed only by the Believer looking to the Cross.  Swaggart makes the cross “the Object of our Faith.”  And he preaches Christ can be followed only by looking to the cross – not looking unto Jesus - “Christ crucified.”

 

Our faith is in Jesus Christ, not the cross as the Object of our faith. 

 

But Swaggart makes the cross an idol of worship. 

 

 

Idolatry:

 Worship of the Cross

 

Also, what cross is Swaggart preaching?  Is he preaching the Christian cross as the Object of our faith or is he preaching another cross?  And why does he worship the cross?  Worship of the cross is idolatry.

 

For example, what are the large 6 white symbols or icons on the carpet in the Baton Rouge Family Worship Center (FWC) auditorium that run down the aisles to the “stage”?  6 crosses?  (You can clearly see these icons at 56 seconds into the following video: "A Visual Tour of Family Worship Center & Jimmy Swaggart Ministries" @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiOhV79zZWU). Clearly, it’s not the Christian cross.  Is it an abstract cross?  Which cross?  An abstract Cross of Salem?  An abstract papal cross?  An abstract cross of Baphomet?  Baphomet is a pagan god that is worshipped in Freemasonry.

 

And why isn’t the symbol clearly identifiable?  Or is it a wicked icon that is placed in plain view to mock and deceive us?  Is it a satanic symbol?

 

A friend mentioned that when he visited FWC in 1987, these symbols were not there.  Were they installed after Swaggart’s new revelation of the cross as the Object of our faith?

 

And even if it were the Christian cross, why would Swaggart purposely desecrate the cross of Christ by putting it on the ground so people would trample on it?

 

And even if it were the Christian cross, why would Swaggart purposely place it on the ground and run downward, like the inverted satanic cross?

 

The cross of Christ must always be lifted up.  It must lift our eyes heavenward, not downward to hell.

 

Jesus says:  

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,

even so must the Son of man be lifted up;

That whosoever believeth in him should not perish,

but have eternal life.

John 3:14, 15

 

Notice, Jesus does not say that whoever believes in the cross should not perish…He plainly declares:  “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”

 

The word “believe” means to accept as true or real and to have faith in.  If we truly believe that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, then we will trust and obey Him. We will trust in His promises and obey His commands.

 

And yet for all the Jimmy Swaggart Ministries talk about the cross, on Frances and Friends, Donnie Swaggart forbid a caller to wear a cross necklace calling it idolatry.  But this is not surprising, for the Swaggarts continuously talk in circles.  They use double-talk to create doubt and confusion about what they’re really preaching and teaching.  Their books and programs are full of babbling contradictions. 

 

And then there’s Gabriel Swaggart’s youth program, Crossfire.  What does this mean?  Does it mean a cross of fire which is pagan fire-worship?  A burning cross seems satanic.  And a burning cross reminds us of the Ku Klux Klan.  Is Gabriel’s Crossfire of Celtic or Druidic origin?

 

All of this worship of the cross is like Catholic cross worship.  Catholics make frequent signs of the cross. And the cross is looked upon as having mysterious powers like a magic charm. Cross worship is black magic from the depths of spiritual darkness. It is from the dark kingdom of devils. 

 

The worship of the cross goes back to antiquity.  Pagans worshipped the cross long before Jesus was born and crucified. 

 

The worship of the cross is pagan idolatry. 

 

The worship of the cross is the spirit of anti-Christ.

 

Cross worship is a doctrine of devils.

 

 

Swaggart Transforms Himself Into an Angel of Light

 

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, 
transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

And no marvel; 
for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be
transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according to their works.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15

Swaggart alleges the Apostle Paul did not understand sanctification because he did not understand the message of the cross. But in 1997 he received a revelation of the Message of the Cross.  Swaggart transforms himself into an angel of light, or an angel of enlightenment. 

Essentially, Swaggart boasts:  “Don’t listen to the Apostle Paul!  Listen to me because I have more enlightenment than Paul!”

In fact, Swaggart slanders the Apostle Paul’s character and argues that after conversion, Paul was a compulsive sinner!

First, let’s look at what Swaggart says about Romans 7:15: “For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.”

Swaggart comments:  “Refers to sin in his life which he doesn’t want to do, and in fact hates, but finds himself unable to stop; unfortunately, due to the fact of not understanding the Cross as it refers to sanctification, this is the plight of most modern Christians.”

Jimmy Swaggart just said that the Apostle Paul was a sinner after conversion because he did not understand sanctification: “due to the fact of not understanding the Cross as it refers to sanctification.”

And…

16 If I then do that which I would not (presents Paul doing something against his will; he doesn’t want to do it, and is trying not to do it, whatever it might be, but finds himself doing it anyway)…

Now, Swaggart is pulling the Apostle Paul down to his own low and carnal nature. He slanders Paul by claiming he was sinning against his will, Paul doesn’t want to do it, and is trying not to do it, but finds himself doing it anyway.

Swaggart is lying about Paul’s character to justify his own filthy whoring after pornography and prostitutes.  Here is what Swaggart wants you to think:

If I then do that which I would not (presents Swaggart as doing something against his will; he doesn’t want to do it, and is trying not to do it, whatever it might be, but finds himself doing it anyway)…

In essence, Swaggart says… “I don’t have free will to run from lewdness and lasciviousness.  Besides, the Apostle Paul was sinning against his will, too!”

Then in Romans 7:17, Swaggart writes:

17 Now then it is no more I that do it (this has been misconstrued by many!  It means, “I may be failing, but it’s not what I want to do”; no true Christian wants to sin because now the Divine Nature is in his life and it is supposed to rule, not the sin nature [II Peter 1:4], but sin (the sin nature) that dwells in me (despite the fact that some Preachers claim the sin nature is gone from the Christian, Paul here plainly says that the sin nature is still in the Christian; however, if our Faith remains constant in the Cross, the sin nature will be dormant, causing us no problem; otherwise, it will cause great problems while the sin nature “dwells” in us, it is not to “rule” in us).

So, what is Swaggart saying now?  He just said the Apostle Paul was struggling with sin.  Now he claims: “Paul here plainly says that the sin nature is still in the Christian; however, if our Faith remains constant in the Cross, the sin nature will be dormant, causing us no problem; otherwise, it will cause great problems while the sin nature “dwells” in us, it is not to “rule” in us).

So, Swaggart is saying that Paul did not understand the Message of the Cross.  Paul did not have the victory over the sin in his life because his Faith was not constant in the Cross:if our Faith remains constant in the Cross, the sin nature will be dormant, causing us no problem.”  Swaggart is teaching that instead of Paul placing his faith in Jesus Christ, he should have placed his faith in the cross!  This is a doctrine of devils!

Clearly, Swaggart is excusing his own wicked sexual perversion by saying he didn’t have the victory over pornography and prostitutes because He should have placed his faith in the Object of the Cross, not Jesus Christ. 

Again, this is a doctrine of devils!  This is a lie from the pit of hell!

And…

Romans 7:24….

O wretched man that I am!  (Any Believer who attempts to live for God outside of God’s Prescribed Order, which is “Jesus Christ and Him Crucified,” will, in fact, live a wretched and miserable existence.  The life can only be lived in one way, and that way is the Cross.)  

Now he talks about “Jesus Christ and Him Crucified” and then life can only be lived in one way, and that way is the Cross.)

Swaggart claims none of the apostles understood the Gospel, and he has received a revelation and possesses special knowledge the apostles did not know.

The truth is Swaggart is double-hearted.  He is false at heart: deceitful and treacherous.  He speaks of attempting to live by “Jesus Christ and Him Crucified,” then turns around and proclaims: The life can only be lived in one way, and that way is the Cross.)

This is double-talk!

James 1: 8 warns us: “A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

Unquestionably, Swaggart is a double-tongued Christian…a hypocrite.  He is purposely inconsistent and deceitful in speech. 

Listen up:

According to Swaggart, for over 2000 years everyone, including the apostles, misunderstood the true message of the Gospel.

For over 2000 years, all true ministers misunderstood the message of the Gospel. 

For over 2000 years, all Bible Christians misunderstood the message of the Gospel. 

He alone has received enlightenment - divine revelation - and is the first person to ever understand the true message of the Gospel; specifically, sanctification by placing Faith in the Object of the Cross!  

Alas, Swaggart’s enlightened doctrine is really a dark doctrine of hell.

Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. 
Luke 11:35

Listen closely: We must be wise as serpents, that we may not be ignorant of Satan’s wicked devices. 

Listen closely:  We must be wise as serpents, that we may not be ignorant of Swaggart’s wicked devices.

 

Jimmy Swaggart is deluded.  He is not an angel of light. He did not receive a divine or special revelation.  Swaggart has been deceived and ensnared by a satanic delusion. 

Swaggart has been influenced by Satan – seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.

 

Self-Delusion:
A Self-Exalted Theologian

Arrogance and pride and boasting and all other self-delusion are of the Devil.  And the desire of Swaggart’s prideful heart is to exalt himself as the greatest theologian that has ever lived by claiming a great revelation of the Message of the Cross. 

Swaggart used to profess that Finis Dake was the greatest theologian that ever lived even though Dake confessed and was convicted of transporting underage girls across state lines for immoral acts! 

 

Years ago, Swaggart stole and used the ideas and writings of theologian Finis Dake as his own. In other words, Swaggart plagiarized Dake's writings and pretended they were his own ideas.  And Dake’s heirs sued Swaggart for plagiarizing their father’s material.

http://www.rickross.com/reference/tv_preachers/tv_preachers13.html

 

Apparently, the current The Expositor’s Study Bible is not the original one. When was it re-written?  After being sued by Dake’s descendants?  After Swaggart’s new revelation?

 

Clearly, Swaggart is jealous and bitter about the plagiarism lawsuit and is exalting himself to the position of a great theologian to usurp Dake.  Consequently, he proclaims that the Apostle Paul [and Finis Dake] didn’t understand sanctification, and he is the only enlightened one about this doctrine. 

 

Swaggart presents himself as a theologian – an angel of light.

 

Theologians pretend that they have great enlightenment about the Scriptures. Simply put, theology is the “science of religion.”  The word theology comes from a heathen source – from the Greek classics (god and science).  The definition of “science” is knowledge.  Therefore, theology is the systematic method of study of the knowledge of God. There is Christian theology, Jewish theology, Muslim theology, and so forth.

 

The truth is many “Christian” theologians are agnostics or atheists.  They become theologians and teach in colleges and universities – including “Christian” schools – to undermine the true Gospel by creating doubt and confusion in the hearts and minds of students.  This is one of the strategies of the Devil. 

 

Theologians are puffed up with false knowledge and pretentious words.  They belittle true Bible-believing Christians who believe true Christians can understand the King James Bible with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

 

The 1937 The Book of Knowledge states:

 

Any set of men with special knowledge are inclined to create a formal language for themselves that does not readily give up its meaning to plain people.  It is so with philosophy, religion, the law, medicine, education and most of all with science.  There is a pretense that these dignified subjects cannot be discussed in plain speech, and so a special jargon is invented for each learned set, and in no instance does the jargon become literature.  This special formal language has to be shed before any piece of prose can be read with pleasure for its own sake.  How fortunate it was then that, from the first, there was a book in the language of the people, plain, strong, full, with a natural music in it, and that book one with an extraordinary variety of expression, rich in interest, and exhaustless in meaning.  Theology, which is the “science of religion,” swiftly hid its meaning in a clumsy jargon from which it has never escaped, but the Bible is clear, simple and beautiful.  And this purity in language and style, drawn from common English speech, has been influencing sincere writers ever since.  

Theologians pretend they have special knowledge, but they are puffed up with false knowledge. They pretend a mighty zeal for Jesus and the Bible, and to have authority from them, but the truth is they are the devil’s disciples masquerading as angels of light.

But there were false prophets also among the people,
even as there shall be false teachers among you,
who privily shall bring in damnable heresies,
even denying the Lord that bought them,
and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

  And many shall follow their pernicious ways;
by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

  And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:
whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not,
and their damnation slumbereth not.
2 Peter 2:1-3

Theologians are false teachers. 

Doesn’t this sound like Jimmy Swaggart: “who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them”?  Swaggart preaches: “for Satan will ever try to move us away from the Cross as the Object of our Faith…Christ can be followed only by the Believer looking to the Cross.

 

And doesn’t this sound like Swaggart: “And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you”?  His Sonlife Broadcasting Network under the pretense of spreading the Gospel is actually self-promotion: selling Jimmy Swaggart merchandise - books, CDs, DVDs, and other merchandise.

 

Clearly, Jesus demonstrated his anger toward merchandisers in the House of the Lord:

And the Jews’ passover was at hand,
and Jesus went up to Jerusalem,

And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves,
and the changers of money sitting:

  And when he had made a scourge of small cords,
he drove them all out of the temple,
and the sheep, and the oxen;
and poured out the changers’ money,
and overthrew the tables;

  And said unto them that sold doves,
Take these things hence;
make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.

  And his disciples remembered that it was written,
The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

  John 2:13-17

  Jimmy Swaggart makes the Father’s house an house of merchandise.

And he uses a Bible-thon to sell his The Expositor’s Study Bible to promote himself as the greatest theologian that has ever lived because of his revelation of the Message of the Cross.

The truth is theologians are Gnostics.  And Gnostics believe that they have been given new truths or secret knowledge about Scriptures because they are the initiated. 

Swaggart preaches a Gnostic gospel.

 

Swaggart’s Gnostic Gospel: Doctrines of Devils

To repeat, theology is the science of religion.  But it is not a true science.  In fact, Christian theology was initiated by Gnostic speculation.

And Swaggart claims that in 1997 he received a revelation of the Message of the Cross no one, not even the Apostle Paul understood. Swaggart’s new revelation is Gnosticism: doctrines of devils. 

Briefly, Gnosticism is a counterfeit Christianity that claims special knowledge or science through divine revelation. Generally, Gnostics believe new truths or secret knowledge are communicated only to the initiated  - and they are the initiated.

 

Swaggart claims that the new truth or secret knowledge of the Message of the Cross was communicated to him.  If this sounds like Freemasonry, it is because Freemasonry is rooted in Gnosticism.  Gnosticism is an occult “science.”

 

Paul warns us: “avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith.” Paul is referring to occult science.  Occult science includes astrology (the so-called science of the influence of the heavenly bodies on human affairs), psychology (the so-called science of the phenomena of mind), and other so-called science that is not true science.  It also includes theology because it’s rooted in Gnosticism. 

 

Swaggart’s theology (the science of religion by revelation) boasts: “for Satan will ever try to move us away from the Cross as the Object of our Faith…” The truth is Satan will ever try to move us away from “Christ crucified” and toward worshipping the Cross as the Object of our Faith.

 

Cross worship is black magic from the depths of spiritual darkness. It is from the dark kingdom of devils.  Cross worship is a doctrine of devils.

 

Consequently, The Expositor’s Study Bible is a book of occult teachings: doctrines of devils, including cross worship.

 

 

Other Doctrines of Devils

 

Another doctrine of devils is the Gap Theory.  And Swaggart preaches the Gap Theory as the doctrine of Creation. 

 

Briefly, Jimmy Swaggart and others advocating the Gap Theory argue that there was previous life on this earth before God created the earth as recorded in Genesis 1:2.  They argue that there is a large gap of time between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2.  And it was on this previous earth when the dinosaurs roamed.  Moreover, they argue that the previous earth ended with a war between the angels of God and the angels of Satan, and God sent a flood that destroyed the surface of the earth and killed all animals and men. After God destroyed the first earth He restored it.  This is also known as the Ruin-Restoration Theory.

 

The truth is the Gap Theory is an ancient pagan belief that recurs time and time again. It is modified and adapted to different pagan religions and proposed by man again and again.  Ecclesiastes 1:9 declares:  “There is no new thing under the sun.”

 

In short, the Gap Theory comes from pagan religions/occult science teaching the universe is reincarnated or re-created again and again. 

 

The Gap Theory is a lie.  It is another doctrine of devils.  (See “The Gap Theory is a Lie” @ http://www.libertyadvocate.com/The%20Gap%20Theory%20is%20a%20Lie.htm).

 

And there are many other false teachings and doctrines of devils in The Expositor’s Study Bible.  But it would take pages and pages and pages to discuss them all.

 

 

Purify Your Hearts and Minds

 

All who believe Swaggart’s doctrines of devils must purify their hearts and minds and homes.  If you have Swaggart’s merchandise…get rid of it!

 

The converted early Ephesians burned their occult books in a great public bonfire.

 

Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together,

and burned them before all men:

and they counted the price of them,

and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.

 

So mightily grew the word of God

and prevailed.

 

Acts 19:19, 20

 

Notice that the books were of great value.  They could have sold them or given them away.   But they did not want to spread evil. 

 

Likewise, Swaggart’s materials contain doctrines of devils!  The Expositor’s Study Bible worships the cross and gives it magical attributes. And it preaches the Gap Theory as the doctrine of Creation and many other lies. Therefore, all of his materials must be cast out of every Christian home!

 

Don’t give them away!

 

Throw them away or burn them!  Evil books belong in the fire because they will damn countless lost souls to hellfire who believe in his doctrines of devils.

 

Some may cry, “Burn The Expositor’s Study Bible? We must never burn the Bible.”

 

Swaggart’s “bible” is not the Holy Bible.  It is an unholy bible. It is a book of doctrines of devils.  It is an occult book. 

 

If you keep these evil books, you may be tempted to look back at them, like Lot’s wife who looked back at evil Sodom.

 

Get rid of all of Swaggart’s merchandise!   

 

Then humbly ask the Lord to purify your heart and mind of Swaggart’s doctrines of devils. And seek to know the Truth.

 

 If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
 

John 8:31, 32
