The New Apostolic Reformation and Covid-19

The New Apostolic Reformation, which supports our current president, is a cult with its roots in the Prosperity Gospel/Word of Faith movement that began in the 1950s. As a defector, I’d like to help explain where these “Christians” stand on the Covid-19 crisis. Brainwashing takes place over time, beginning with slightly twisted truths that appeal …

Long ago, when I formed you in your mother’s womb, I placed a piece of Myself inside you. I have been with you since your conception. I was there as your organs formed, as your fingers and toes took shape. I determined the color of your eyes and the sound of your voice. I was …
