The team that released American Gospel: Christ Alone (2018) in 2018, which took a swing at the prosperity gospel, and American Gospel: Christ Crucified (2019) which addressed the exclusivity of Christ and defended penal substitutionary atonement, has released a new trailer for the third installment: American Gospel: Spirit & Fire.
Featuring over 40 interviews, the film will be aimed squarely at the NAR movement and the prophets and apostles of the charismatic movement. Director Brandon Kimber explains:
“In Matthew 3:11, John the Baptist says, “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”
Today, many in hyper-charismatic circles use this verse to teach that a Christian should pursue a “baptism of fire” from the Holy Spirit. These encounters with the presence of God typically manifest in bizarre ways, including a loss of self-control, dignity, and other mystical experiences that are untethered from Scripture and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
American Gospel: Spirit & Fire will examine the true person and work of the Holy Spirit, including His work in the life of Christ and His followers, and contrast this with the different spirit commonly promoted in the movement known as the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR).
