Jimmy Swaggart Net Worth - Donnie Swaggart Divorced First & Second Wife
Jimmy Swaggart is estimated to have a $350,000 a year salary. He and his family own a fleet of six Mercedes Benz cars. He owns three homes. Son Donnie is said to live in a $700,000 home. Not that this is much different from the lavish lifestyles of Benny Hinn, Joyce Meyers, Kenneth Copeland, Pat Robertson, Creflo Dollar (at least this guy is rightly named), T. D. Jakes, Morris Cerullo, Paul Crouch, Marilynn Hickey, etc., etc. ad nauseum. But Donnie seems to be keeping quiet about apparently divorcing his first wife, marrying someone else, and then divorcing her. Here is what someone claiming to be a former employee of Jimmy Swaggart Ministries has to say about the question "Is Donnie Swaggart Divorced?"
"Absolutely. In the four years I worked there Donnie Swaggart divorced two wives. Debbie in 2003 and Judy about three years later. No, I didn't see the divorce papers but I did see him with one wife who disappeared, then another wife shortly after who disappeared and hasn't been seen since. Even more bizarre is no one at that church dares to speak of it or question whether this slap-happy husband is qualified to shepherd anything. It would be the first step in facing the lie they are all living. As the Swaggart apologists are quick to point out Jimmy is preaching some parts of the word but families there are falling apart left and right, adultery among staff and congregation is rampant. Even the young son of the popular associate preacher, president of the Bible college, and star "anointed" singer of Jimmy's music program was recently busted getting high at a local drug house.
The flock is heavily armed with Jimmy's "new revelation" of the Cross, the same single-minded teaching and scriptures are preached over and over, every single service but the flock is starved for guidance in Biblical teachings applicable to every day family life. The Swaggarts rule their staff and emloyees with bullying, intimidation, and quickly threaten termination for any hint of a problem... no matter who is right or wrong. Opinions, individual thinking, even helpful suggestions are not tolerated and will bring quick scrutiny. The code among emloyees is do whatever it takes to avoid drawing attention for any reason, at any cost, right or wrong. The Swaggarts have hidden personal agendas and use the Gospel itself as their "sheep's clothing" and license to bully and intimidate the weak willed people who still work for them.
It's truly an amazing deception that they have achieved to still get blinded followers to rally behind them. They brag every week from the pulpit with exaggerated and skewed numbers of what the ministry is accomplishing in gaining followers worldwide. Don't dare question the accuracy of it or ask for any kind of financial disclosure. It will be the last words out of your mouth on JSM premises. The sad thing is that even with all the millions of dollars they've spent recently in the attempt to rebuild the Swaggart power and fame (oops, I mean "spread the Word"), the congregation continues to shrink, alter calls are mostly the same old people year in-year out, many radio callers are just long time Swaggart followers simply reminiscing about how great Jimmy is/was. Meanwhile the ministry buildings are in shambles and ruins. It really seems to appear that God has the Swaggarts on a very short leash. And yes once again Donnie Swaggart, the appointed pastor and shepherd of "Family Worship Center" DID just recently divorce not one but two wives."
