Multitudes of Christians have been given a wildly distorted understanding of the biblical teaching about “faith.” In the late twentieth century, Word of Faith Teachers, such as Kenneth Hagin and Benny Hinn, were at the fore.
In the early twenty-first, they are overshadowed by a new breed of prosperity preachers with even bigger platforms, like Joel Osteen, John Hagee, Joyce Meyer, and Todd Bentley, who are increasingly viewed as mainstream. T.D. Jakes is lauded by Barack Obama as well as trumpeted by Time as perhaps the “the next Billy Graham.”
Thousands have been helped out of the Faith movement by the Christian Research Institute, but many more must be rescued.
