Recounting his recent visit to the White House, Bakker declared that he is “so moved by our president asking for prayer” as he rejoiced that “the president is always asking for prayer” because he is a man “that loves prayer.”
Bakker claimed that President Trump watches his program and has told one of Bakker’s close friend that he likes Bakker because “he got back up” after “something happened in [his] life that knocked [him] down.” (For the record, that “something” that knocked Bakker down was the prison sentence he received after being convicted of dozens of counts of fraud.)
Bakker went on to declare that “everything God’s ever spoke to me has come to pass” while fuming that society has made Christians afraid to share their faith. But Bakker refuses to be controlled by that fear, even though he knows he could be killed simply for wearing a Christian hat in public.
“I wear them out in public and I know I could be shot,” he proclaimed. “I know that. There are crazy people out there, but I’m not going to deny the cross. I will not deny the cross! I won’t.”
