Pastor Jim & Lori Bakker discuss Overcoming Adversity on The Jim Bakker Show.
It’ll Be Alright
Pasteur Jim et Lori Bakker, with co-host Kevin Shorey, focused on the battle surrounding the building of Lori’s House, a facility planned to welcome young women with untimely pregnancies and offer a safe place for delivery of their babies as an alternative to abortion. Pastor Jim shared that his heart breaks over the opposition. Particularly because abortion, in God’s eyes, equals murder, and the intent of the house revolved around saving children and standing for the value of all life. He asked supporters to pray for the house and added that he never dreamed anybody would resist its presence in the area
After months of preparation and spending nearly $500,000, 15 people succeeded in getting an injunction against the ministry to stop any further progress. Pastor Jim noted that support beams were already on the land and ready for placement, cependant, the day building of the actual house was to start, the order came down to cease all work. The primary reason the protesters complained related to their fear that the home would bring violence to the area coming from the husbands or boyfriends of women at the home who might be against the ladies going forward with pregnancy. There also were fears that the home’s presence in the community would cause an increase in taxes. The group even approached the head of the company who cleared and paved the road to the site of Lori’s House, wanting him to add his name to the petition against the home. Pastor Jim said the man refused to go along with the plan.
The Bakkers hold a great love for lambs, the innocent animals so often referred to in scripture, and have several amour cadeau offers available for those who want to contribute towards the effort to save “Lori’s Little Lambs.” These offers, Pastor Jim explained, will help the ministry move ahead with construction of the home at another site.
Even though the setback upset Pastor Jim and Lori, they firmly believe God has control of the situation and will work all things out for His glory. Pastor Jim said he often gains encouragement by listening to an old recording his daughter, Tammy Sue, made as a teenager when she sang “Everything’s Gonna Be All Right.” He encouraged the continued prayers, support and donations of fellow Christians to help secure victory. “Let’s give the devil a black eye.”
