During an interview with Pastor Rick Renner about his new book -- How to Keep Your Head on Straight in a World Gone Crazy -- evangelical Pastor Jim Bakker said "America has gone crazy," it celebrates evil and condemns what is good, and across the nation it seems as if there has been "a massive demon possession in the political realm."
Commenting on the political and media chaos in Washington, D.C., Rev. Bakker said, “I want to tell you people today, America has gone crazy. I believe much of politics today, especially those that have gone out on an extreme -- I’ll say left, they are way left -- I believe there is a massive demon possession in the political realm today.”
Rick Renner, who with his wife operates Rick Renner Ministries, agreed.
“I believe it,” he said. “It’s like Hell found a voice. Hell is speaking through the political system today and through the media. It is amazing what is happening to the media."
It is just wicked what is taking place," said Renner. "It should not be permitted. I think about Jesus; Jesus told the demons to shut up and I think we need to take authority over all these voices and command them to be still, in Jesus’ name.”
Rick and Denise Renner live in Moscow, Russia and have been operating a Christian ministry there since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.
