When the Southern Baptists, the largest Protestant denomination in the country, endorse “critical race theory” (CRT), you know American Christianity has a Marxism problem. At the Southern Baptist national convention in Birmingham, Alabama, in June, a resolution on CRT and “intersectionality” gained passage with a strong majority.
It sounds simple, absurdly so, but Coontz knows his audience extremely well. He broadcasts on Christian cable channels, often late into the night, drawing in viewers who lack financial literacy and are desperate for change.
“I understand the laws that govern insurance, stocks and bonds and all that is involved with Wall Street,” he once said, looking directly into the camera. “God has called me… as a financial deliverer.”

Another aspect is when a speaker or one of Bethel’s students from the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry gives a prophetic word to an individual. Many attendees say they experienced this in the form of prayer and a few given from the platform. Bethel Music posted one example on its Facebook page, in which the Nixon family received a word.
The host, Doc Burkhart, leads his audience in a “sinner’s prayer.” He tells viewers to confess to God, “Lord, I’m so sorry. I don’t how I was so deceived. I don’t how I was so bewitched by all of this.
“I thought it was a good thing to support the people of Israel. I thought it was a good thing to help Israel.

For the first time in history, atheists constitute the largest religious group in America. According to the General Social Survey, the number of Americans who have no religion has increased 266% over the past three decades and now account for 23.1% of the population, just barely edging out Catholics and Evangelicals as the nation’s dominant faith. Mainline Protestant churches have suffered the greatest collapse, declining 62.5% since 1982 and now comprising just 10.8% of the U.S. population.
