Judging Jimmy Swaggart: Evil Fruits
Irrefutably, God’s Law gives us the authority and duty to judge sinners in the church, including false preachers. So, let’s look at some of Swaggart’s evil fruits…
But I say unto you,
That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her
hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Swaggart committed acts of adultery by a-whoring after pornography and prostitutes and refuses to repent. In 1985, before his fall, Swaggart wrote Rape of a Nation openly condemning pornography. O ye hypocrite!
Why does Swaggart idolize Dake who confessed to sexual sin with young girls?
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness,
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which
commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same,
but have pleasure in them that do them.
Romans 1:29, 32
While Swaggart was committing adultery with whores, he hypocritically pointed his finger at Marvin Gorman and Jim Bakker condemning and exposing their adultery. He did this with malice and mischief in his evil heart, not to bring them to repentance. Gorman and Bakker were ministry rivals. So, Swaggart methodically set out to destroy his competition.

In regards to the killing gay comment Swaggart said he has jokingly used the expression "killing someone and telling God he died" thousands of times, about all sorts of people. He said the expression is figurative and not meant to harm.
"It's a humorous statement that doesn't mean anything. You can't lie to God -- it's ridiculous," Swaggart told The Associated Press. "If it's an insult, I certainly didn't think it was, but if they are offended, then I certainly offer an apology."
To joke about something as serious as this knowing how literal persons take action against same gender loving people is grossly irresponsible. Yet these are the persons who hold positions of leadership in religion, can the blind lead the blind?
Peace and tolerance
