VENTURA, Calif. - Forget the Y2K crisis. Jim Bakker has darker fears. The former televangelist warned that an apocalypse is fast approaching, predicting an asteroid will crash into Earth and b1ock out the sun and moon.

"Y2K is going to be a Sunday picnic compared to what else is going to happen," said Bakker, referring to the worldwide software glitch that threatens computers on Jan. 1, 2000. "All I say is don't fall in love with this world," Bakker told an overflowing crowd Sunday at the Solid Rock Christian Center.
