A new documentary on Netflix is stirring up controversy for its portrayal of religion, faith, and Christianity in America.
“American Gospel: Christ Alone,” a 2018 film that arrived on Netflix last month, is dividing viewers between those who think the film is “demonically inspired” and others who like the message it sends.
The film explores the prosperity gospel, promoted by preachers like Joel Osteen, which equates faith with financial success and questions this health and wealth approach to Christianity.
The documentary ignited a controversy online after evangelist Todd White gave a speech about “American Gospel,” calling it “a demonically inspired movie.”
Watch “American Gospel: Christ Alone” on Netflix.
