Jim Bakker and The Coronavirus Cure.

I’m sure it had already started with someone else, but it seems that Jim Bakker (the climate change is an excuse to ignore God guy), has found a reason to profit from the Coronavirus.

Yes. Jim Bakker appears to selling a cure for the coronavirus….

Lets pause a moment. Looking at the webpage for the above episode, you find the following quote…

If you could create the most perfect healing substance, what would you create? You would create something that is non-toxic, you would create something that is safe for all ages, you would create something that is totally effective, and has been proven with studies to do exactly what it says to do. If you were to have a perfect healing elixir, it would be this one (Silver Sol). Because it has all of those properties.

Doctor Sherrill Sellman

Looking up Silver Sol on Google, it appears to have an ingredient called Colloidal silver. Which according to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services…

The FDA also warned in 1999 that colloidal silver isn’t safe or effective for treating any disease or condition.

Lesson here?

Dont research anything that The Jim Bakker Show sells, that sends you down an interesting online rabbit hole. Its far easier to just buy the stuff and see what happens. Right?

This week in the internet

Every week Sofa attempts to round up some of the bits of church internet, that didn’t really make it as a proper post. I say attempt – mostly because this doesn’t seem to have happened for a while. I’m not sure why.

Any way… This collection of fun links comes to you to the backdrop of “Happy Feet.” A bonkers film about singing penguins.

Jim Bakker wants to sell you a Trump Photo…

When A Church Just Asks Its Old People To Leave…

Well. According to Premier Christian News, this is a thing…

Grand Forks Herald reports that a church memo was sent to elderly members recommending they attend the Woodbury campus while the church “resets”. They were also encouraged to wait two years before re-applying for membership.

Sofa is all for encouraging young people in church, but does also feel that lowering the average age by default is simply cheating.

This Week In The Internet

A round up of some of the more random things from the world of Church internets that have come across The Sofa’s attention this week.

Something about Harry and Meghan

Christian Today reported on Christians reaction to recent news from the Royal Family…

Christians have been voicing their sympathy for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Twitter today after they confirmed that they are stepping back as “senior” members of the Royal Family.

In an announcement, the couple said they had reached their decision “after many months of reflection and internal discussions”. 

They plan to split their time between the UK and North America, “continuing to honour our duty to the Queen, the Commonwealth and our patronages,” and have said their goal is to become “financially independent”. 

“We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen,” they said.

What happens when you get Paula White (Spiritual Advisor to Donald Trump), appearing on The Jim Bakker Show? (The Jim Bakker Show being home to all sorts of comments…)

Well, it gets insinuated that Christians must back Trump in 2020 or else the Bible will be banned as hate speech… also the freedom of America is apparently at stake. What does that even mean anyway?

Look Out For The Godly Thumb Drive

It seems that during his appearance on “The Jim Bakker Show”, Hank Kunneman suddenly seemed to receive a prophetic word from God that the appearance of a thumb drive would be a sign that America will have a “season of restoration” during which prayer will take place in public schools and abortion will be stopped.

Which happens to be two things that people watching will love to hear…
