BB SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1996 RELIGION THE SALINA JOURNAL TPTL lim Bakker: I miss Tammy Faye Ex-minister is learning to live without ministry, fancy cars and houses By The Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. — After five years in prison for bilking his followers out of millions of dollars, Jim Bakker is > learning to live ! without his ministry, the fancy cars and houses, and Tammy Faye. "I really, really am lonely. I miss Tammy Faye," Bakker said in an interview with Barbara Walters for airing on BAKKER ABC's "20-20" Friday. Most of the interview and his new book, "I Was Wrong," focus on Bakker's life in federal prison and his relationship with Tammy Faye Messner, his former wife. Bakker, 56, says his lowest point in prison came when he found out that Tammy was divorcing him to marry his best friend, Roe Messner. "My wife of more than 30 years was leaving me," he writes. "I wept... and wept... and wept." A federal jury in Charlotte convicted Bakker in 1989 of conspiracy and wire and mail fraud after selling more than 150,000 "lifetime partnerships" to the now-defunct ministry's Heritage USA theme park in Fort Mill, S.C. Prosecutors said the partnerships — which typically went for $1,000 apiece and offered a free hotel room three nights a year for life — were nothing more than a form of time-share transaction that were illegally oversold, with Bakker living off the proceeds. And while he still denies he ever sold time-shares, Bakker blames himself for preaching and living an extravagant lifestyle. "It was wrong as a minister of the gospel, I believe, to live that way," Bakker said in the interview, taped at his modest brick farmhouse in Hendersonville. "Back then, I felt it was fine and justifiable." Bakker also talks about being sexually molested by a man when he was 11 years old and about questioning his sexuality in prison. He said a prison therapist assured him he was not homosexual. Pope John Paul II to be hospitalized By The Associated Press VATICAN CITY — A 10th floor suite at Rome's Catholic teaching hospital has been readied for Pope John Paul II, who is checking in Sunday for an appendectomy. The Vatican did not say exactly when the operation would take place, but sources said it probably won't be before Tuesday. The 76-year-old pontiff has been stricken three times since December by what the Vatican described as an intestinal ailment. After he looked particularly weak during a trip to Hungary Sept. 6-7, the Vatican said he was suffering from an inflamed appendix requiring surgery. The Vatican has repeatedly denied reports that the surgery was linked to the 1992 removal of a colon tumor that the Vatican says was benign.

Yet, most of those who do will tell you they are not frightened, for a shaky step could prove disastrous. Faith in their knowledge and skill provides a sure stride. Those of us who do not share such occupations may feel safe, yet as we walk through life, we have no guarantees from one moment until the next. We must always be ready for the unexpected challenge, trusting God to guide us. 2 Corinthians 5:7 instructs us, "We walk by faith, not by sight." As you approach your church or synagogue this week, walk with a sure stride, for we are promised, "He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths" (Isaiah 2:3).
