Jim Bakker Shares How He Forgave Those Who Put Him in Prison

Televangelist Jim Bakker only needed one last thing to get him out of prison: To forgive those who put him there. 

As he sat behind bars, he poured over the Word of God and R.T. Kendall's book on Joseph.  

"That set me free," Bakker says. "I had to forgive everybody, from my heart! Wow. That was the hard one." 

Each day, Bakker would read the names of the judge, the jury and those who turned him in out loud to the Lord.  

That's when God reminded Bakker of scriptures like Matthew 6 and Romans 10.  

Watch the video to see how the words impacted him.
