    Worried the pearly gates won't have clean water? TV evangelist Jim Bakker has your back.

    Twenty years after his release from prison following rape and fraud allegations, the disgraced pastor is busy selling unique survival kits apparently for the Apocalypse.

    On his website for his latest TV program, "The Jim Bakker Show," the 74-year-old sells everything from bulk "End of the World Biscuits," "Extreme Survival Bottles" — two for $57 — and extreme cold-weather apparel.

    Elmer Gantry would be proud.

    Some prepare for "the Apocalpyse" by buying cookies, other try to "save their 'soul'" from "hell" by saying "prayers" to a "god". I can't see why one thing could be more/less plausible than the other... mmmmm cookies....

    Umm...yeah... We've still go at least another 45 years before the end of the world. I ain't worried. The Four Horseman aren't scheduled to arrive until AFTER 2060, according to one of the smartest man to walk the Earth.

    The man predicted the end of the King of the North, before the Game of Thrones was even written.:eek::D

    I'll just kill myself when civilization ends. Better than becoming some warlord's slave or starving to death.

    "Not if you were the last man on Earth" takes on a new meaning when you've got EOTWAWKI biscuits.

    Still having those dreams about having no recourse other than "shooting the ugly ones", I see.

    Well Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford and Jodie Foster still won't return my calls. Meg Ryan and Catherine Bach have had restraining orders since the 80's. But if I had biscuits...

    As much as I don't care for Jim Bakker nowhere does his website advertise "End Of The World" food.

    I had to actually visit his website to look.

    Nothing listed as "End Of The World".

    I'm just going to write down the location of the warehouse, so when the apocalypse comes, I'm just going to lead my own tribe of miscreants on a raid.

    you would think these would be marked down end of the world biscuits since the world was supposed to end several times this decade.

    Why is it that you would bash a guy that is marketing a product to a specific group? Just because it says "end of the world" on it? I think it's pretty clever marketing. There are many people that buy this kind of thing to use in emergencies. I have family in California that have a large stock of food and water in case of an earthquake. I also have a friend that lives in Alaska that also has a stockpile of food in case there is a bad storm and they can't get to town for an extended period of time. All of the people around his area do.

    He's selling it as "Emergency Food Buckets" just as about million other places do. Heck you can even get the stuff on Amazon and Sam's Club.

    Do you expect him to never work again and never pay what he owes? He did his time in prison, now he is trying to get it back together.

    He's not selling end of times crap. He's selling the same survival crap that a million other companies are selling. He's even selling solar panels and EMP bags.

    Right it is all so innocent just like how he accidentally ripped off millions. of course it has nothing to do with his end of times books of course such as this excerpt below. support the scumbag ripoff artist and tax evader. I mean he is christian so he must be trustworthy.
