(Deadline) Televangelist Jim Bakker recently suffered a stroke, according to a Facebook post Friday by his wife, Lori. As a result, the 80-year-old preacher will be taking what’s described as a “sabbatical” from his television show.
“For many years now, Jim has been working non-stop, working hard to bring incredible prophets and guests to our show, discovering and developing new products to share … and bringing forth the message for the days that we are living in. All of these projects, and the vigorous warfare that we have experienced in the last several weeks, have taken a huge toll on Jim’s health,” said the Facebook post.
Bakker was most recently chastised for touting a coronavirus cure on his program.
New York State Attorney General Letitia James ordered Bakker not to continue advertising the product, “Silver Solution,” on his website in early March. Four days later, Missouri filed a lawsuit against Bakker and his production company for selling the treatment.
Lori Bakker noted, “As a family and staff, we continue to fight the good fight of faith and take a stand against the evil forces and hatred that has come against our ministry. In Jim’s words, this has been the most vicious attack that he has ever experienced.”
She added: “He is still dreaming and hearing from the Lord, and he already has a powerful word to deliver when he returns to the air.”
