The key bulwark of faith-based Trumpism is the prosperity gospel: To the evangelicals (both right and left) lying and money are the real “gospel” so “He’s one of us!”

(AP Photo/Richard Vogel, File)(photo www.rollingstone.com)Evangelical Christianity in America became a get-rich-quick scheme long ago. So it's no wonder that millions of prosperity gospel-following downtrodden white evangelicals who forgot to start churches of their own (and get rich) see Trump as one of their own. For a start he's just like their preachers and leaders: a comforting fraud who holds out hope of winning life's lottery.According to a new Pew poll an astonishing four fi … [Read more...]

Christianity Today is scared of Peggy, Tony and Bart Campolo (and me) and wants to help evangelicals brainwash their children more effectively

Christianity Today is scared of Tony, Peggy and Bart Campolo and wants to help evangelicals brainwash their children more effectively so they won't turn out like Bart.The "method" is always the same. Bart isn't a Christian anymore so we need to blame his parents (while pretending not to) and improve the way we indoctrinate our kids lest they turn out like Bart or worse yet, like Frank Schaeffer.To do that the first thing we have to do is lie about them, dismiss the backsliders and make … [Read more...]

I even wrote a book about learning to become a marine's dad that became a New York Times bestseller after Oprah interviewed me. Then came 9/11. My son went to war, a … [Read more...]

Do Evangelical Leaders Really Believe Their Own BS?

Let’s be honest. Sure some smart young people who “come to Christ” are deeply sincere. Then life happens to them and they come to see that nothing is quite as true as it was cracked up to be that night they got "saved." Then they have a choice: stick with the program, because that’s how they earn their living and/or they now are known as “Christians” so backing down is hard since their identity is on the line-- or bail.Some bail. They lose jobs, friends and family. Most who don't bail and sti … [Read more...]
