Bakker’s ‘King’s Castle’ Being Demolished

A blast from the past,

Demolishment has begun on a large symbol of a bygone era in 1980s American televangelism history located in South Carolina. “The King’s Castle,” the central building for the former Heritage USA Christian theme park in Fort Mill, once owned by the Bakker family, will be leveled. The removal of the centerpiece of the abandoned theme park began earlier this week, with residents from nearby recently developed homes commenting to NBC Charlotte about their approval of the demolition due to the poorly maintained structure being seen as “an eyesore.”

Here’s where it gets interesting,

Tracy Horton, a spokesperson for Morningstar Ministries, which currently owns the property for which The King’s Castle is located, told local media that they also approved the demolition…

Morningstar Ministries, established in 1995 by Pastor Rick Joyner of Charlotte, N.C., purchased 52 acres of the property in 2004 and uses its Heritage Grand Hotel for worship for one of Morningstar’s satellite campuses.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
