Branding Kimber with us today here in the Christian worldview, the creator of American gospel.

Both films are set first film as the subtitle is Christ alone.

The second one she just releases call Christ crucified Brandon to play another soundbite from the film is gone from moralistic preaching to the works gospel.

Now let's go over to the what you mentioned earlier that had impacted your family so much growing up which was the Word of Faith movement and this particular soundbite has one of the most popular word of faith.

Preachers Kenneth Copeland also Benny Hinn and then finishes with Justin peters, who you also mentioned has been WHOIS. I have cerebral palsy and I was was falsely promised to be healed and he is younger and has spent much of his adult life and ministry speaking out against that the false gospel of the Word of Faith movement was here that soundbite, Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hannon, others from your film American gospel is God's will to heal. If so, is in his will to heal me.

The answer is yes and yes. When I'm praying for somebody first thing has happened is have to be absolutely convinced that it's God's will to heal people. Every time the word of Faith movement is the term given to a movement is more commonly known as the health and wealth gospel prosperity gospel name and claimant gospel distinction, it is always God's will for a Christian to be wealthy. It's always God's will for Christian physically healed sick.

Believe me when I I get or if we do get sick we can be healed as long as we have enough faith, we can attract positive things to ourselves through positive thinking Norman Vincent feel the great Vincent pill was my past, the power of positive thinking and the Word of Faith movement is led by people so choose. In his most famous faith healer Tim Scoble and Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, Joel O'Steen, Joseph Prince TD Jakes, these are just some of the more prominent leaders of the movement, but what is happened is that the United States of America has created this false theology is now exported to the rest of the world.

Now the face of Christianity.

Most of the world is word of faith that was Justin peters from your film American gospel Brandon, you've obviously your family have had much experience with this Word of Faith movement.

Why do you think it's so prevalent is just exploded around the world as Benny Hinn says in that trailer.

Nobody wants to die. Nobody wants to be sick and nobody wants to be poor should know those are natural human desires and so if you take those desires and hold them out as the attraction to come to Christ. That of course it's can be popular there, not necessarily sinful, but they can be idols, so the Word of Faith movement are using God as a means to another and it's kinda like marrying someone for their money.

That message of God has a wonderful plan for your life of health, wealth and happiness in all your dreams will come true is it is contradicting the gospel message of deny yourself, take up your cross and those promises of suffering and persecution that come when you put your faith in Christ
