Spiritual advisor to President Trump Paula White was recently filmed in her church giving a sermon that employed idiosyncratic and fiery rhetoric. What is the new language of spiritual warfare? Where is it coming from, and where is it taking us? 

Andre Gagne is Associate Professor in the Theological Studies Department of Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. His work focuses on the Christian right, charismatic Dominionism, fundamentalism, religious violence and the interpretation of the Bible. This week on Beliefs, Gagne discusses spiritual warfare rhetoric through the lens of Paula White’s recent sermons.

Beliefs producer Jay Woodward spoke with Gagne from Concordia University.
