Amos 8:5 >>
…Saying, “When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, MAKING THE EPHAH SMALL, and THE SHEKEL GREAT, and FALSIFYING THE BALANCES BY DECEIT?”
Also, during the month, Jim Bakker once again invited Economist Dr. Larry Bates on his show to talk about the financial crisis in America. Dr. Bates who wrote the book THE NEW ECONOMIC DISORDER, warned people to get out of debt as much as possible because the economy is not going to get better. America’s spending is out of control and Dr. Bates says that understanding the truths in the Bible concerning the times we live in will set us free from believing everything is going to be okay.
Dr. Bates spoke of the need for preachers to understand the times, as the sons of Issachar did in the Old Testament, and start preparing for the difficult days ahead. Jim Bakker and Dr. Bates spoke about how the basic needs of everyday life along with emergency food supplies should be available in every church. They agreed that we are to pay attention to the Bible’s teachings so that we will not be overtaken by fear during the unfolding of the Book of Revelation. Both agreed that we are not appointed for God’s wrath in the end times, but we will certainly live through some perilous times!
Jim Bakker says Christians should not be exclusive to their own church, but they should be growing into a community, helping each other in order to help the unsaved. He believes we are coming into the greatest harvest time of souls as events unfold around the world pointing to the soon return of the Lord. Jim also believes the church will someday become “places of refuge.”
“Woe to the Shepherds!”, says Dr. Larry Bates concerning the pastors and teachers who are not warning their congregations of the times we are living in for fear this message would not be popular among their church goers.

Now for the bad news: So far tonight I’ve seen two comments at two different sites that say Bates rips off elderly people:
