Earlier this month, televangelist Jim Bakker sat down with Rick Wiles, the host of the End Times radio program “Trunews,” where Wiles alleged that the U.S. is supporting terrorism while Russia under Vladimir Putin is bravely standing for God.

This led Bakker to describe “never-been-aired” footage of a 1979 interview he conducted with then-Gov. Reagan in which “Ronald Reagan prophesied.”

“He said, ‘Jim, if America doesn’t change, repent, America will become Sodom and Gomorrah,’” Bakker claimed.

Lori Bakker, Jim’s wife who also says she saw the footage, added that “he said, ‘If America doesn’t turn from its ways right now,’ he said, ‘this could be the generation that sees Armageddon.’”

Unfortunately, the Bakkers said they don’t have the tape of Reagan’s remarks.

Wiles said that this footage must be released “because what America is going through right now is a cultural cleansing, this is a communistic cultural cleansing.” He claimed that the communists who have supposedly taken over the U.S. are doing away with America’s knowledge of God and their own history and lamented that “America has been under a communistic cultural cleansing for the last forty years” … which would include the Reagan era.

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
