Rapist, Jim Bakker, Compares Prison Time to Attempted Rape Victim, Joseph

Joseph was thrown in prison because Potiphar’s wife tried to rape him, and he fled to maintain his purity. Jim Bakker was thrown in prison because he raped a woman and used ministry funds to cover it up. However, Bakker – who is now out of jail and running the same type of real estate scams that led to his imprisonment – recently claimed that his prison time was just like Joseph’s.

Jim Bakker told R.T. Kendall on The Jim Bakker Show – which he runs from a retirement end-times survival community – that God allowed him to go to prison.

Bakker said, “Even when I was in the midst of the prison, God means this for good. Today I feel almost privileged that I was able to spend that time with God. It changed my life.”

Bakker tag-team raped a woman with another evangelist and was caught giving her 300k in tax-deductible ministry donations to pay her off. This brought investigator’s attentions to his real estate scam in which he was selling time-shares to donors fraudulently. Bakker was indicted on eight counts of mail fraud, 15 counts of wire fraud, and one count of conspiracy, and he was sentenced to 45 years in the federal penitentiary. Later, the sentence was reduced to eight years. To this day, he still owes the IRS about six million dollars.

Joseph, on the other hand…

11 One day he went into the house to attend to his duties, and none of the household servants was inside. 12 She caught him by his cloak and said, “Come to bed with me!” But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house (Genesis 39:11-12)

Potiphar’s wife then ran claiming #MeToo and had him arrested. That’s not only a different reason than Jim Bakker was arrested, it’s kind of the opposite. Bakker was the rapist in this scenario, not the innocent party.
