In the 1970's the pastor's son listened to a fifteen minute radio broadcast by Jimmy Swaggart, and told me that Swaggart was a phony.
In 1986, competing for donor's money, Jimmy Swaggart helped expose fellow evangelist Marvin Gorman for adultery. The next year, Swaggart helped expose Jim Bakker for an affair years earlier with a prostitute. And the next year, Marvin Gorman sent a film crew to catch Jimmy Swaggart with a prostitute.
Romans 2:1 tells us how phony preachers can spot another phony, while thousands of their Godly followers cannot:
... you who judge practice the same things.
