Televangelist's show sells $45 Trump coin as 'point of contact' to God

"The Jim Bakker Show" recently promoted a coin decorated with President Trump's face as a "point of contact" with God. In a viral clip of the promotion, evangelical author Lance Wallnau described the $45 coin as a means for believers to establish a “point of contact” with God.

“When I asked the Lord ‘Why the coin?’ he said ‘Because when you take the coin, it’s a point of contact,'” Wallnau said. “So your faith is being released with a million other believers to pray protection and peace and wisdom and counsel over the president of the United States and over his family," he added.

He went on to say, “That’s why we got to pray, because they think we’re crazy. But we’re actually the sane ones. We gotta pray. The teaching that is here, this coin is a point of contact (with God), this 24-carat gold plated coin.” The coin depicts a photo of Trump alongside King Cyrus, the founder of the first Persian empire.

Last year, Wallnau referred to Trump as “modern-day Cyrus,” saying at the time that “America’s going to have a challenge ... With Trump, I believe we have a Cyrus to navigate through the storm

There is no shortage of stupid people in this country, that's for sure.

I have become so jaded by humanity in the past two years. It's so depressing.

Donald Trump and Two Corinthians walk into a strip club.

Trump gets drunk and forcibly grabs a stripper's cooch. He bellows, "Lord! Where there's the spirit, there's my liberty!"




Joke history: Jan. 18, 2016. Trump misquoted Second Corinthians 3:17 as Two Corinthians at Liberty University.

“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

King James Version (KJV)

30. I remember Jim Baker from the pre-jail days

He was hilarious back in the day. Him and Tammy Faye! I used to work second shift, and got off at midnight. Often, he was the best thing on TV. I used to crack a beer and watch him hawk stays at his water park and other crap. He had a piece of garbage for your price range too, no matter what it was. My all time favorite was a piece of paper that said - more or less - you had watched the 700 club and were a devout follower. It looked like something he typed up and xeroxed a million times. So the paper, the copy, the postage and whatever else - it probably cost about a buck to make. He charged viewers $100 for it! Too funny, unless you were taken in by his con man BS.
