Meet the pastors behind Brazil’s new pro-Israel foreign policy
Evangelicals in Brazil grew from 6.6 percent in 1980 to 22.2 percent in 2010, according to the 2010 census. Today, evangelicals constitute an estimated 27 percent of Brazil’s population. By comparison, American evangelicals make up about 25 percent of the religious landscape in the United States, according to the Pew Research Center.

Like their U.S. cousins, Brazil’s evangelicals have become a political force to be reckoned with. The evangelical caucus in Brazil’s congress is among the largest with nearly 200 members. Overwhelming evangelical support for Jair Bolsonaro is widely credited for his presidential victory last October.

Although often disparaged in the media, Bolsonaro received loyal support from evangelicals after he promised to move Brazil’s embassy to Jerusalem.

One of those supporters, Dr. Josimar Salum, met with Bolsonaro multiple times, worked on his campaign and has been part ...

Tragically aberrant groups such as prosperity gospel / hyper faith, the so called New Apostolic Reformation, which is not new, (based on very old heresies), not apostolic (the self appointed “apostles” and “prophets” that lead this movement fail all the biblical tests), and definitely not a Reformation, as well as G12, a radical heavy shepherding intensive cell movement from Colombia, (led by pastor Cesar Castellanos of Bogotá), are all well represented and have huge churches in Brazil.

The Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UCKG in English or IURD in Portuguese), is typical of these, a hyper-prosperity church, that has huge churches, with many daily services, all geared to prosperity, healing, business success, good marriages, and spiritual deliverance and “empowerment”. It owns newspapers, a bank, the second largest tv station in Brazil, and by the way has countless numbers of churches here in my country in Britain, generally called “Helpcentres”, with services in English, but also in Spanish and Portuguese as well.

This combined with a very large Catholic Charismatic Movement shows the absolutely chaotic spiritual scenario that is in Brazil.

I had a friend in Brazil, an Englishman with his Brazilian wife, who gave me a lot of this information. This huge country n

Though there are small numbers of both Baptists and Reformed Churches in Brazil, by far and away, the largest number of evangelicals, both real and neo-evangelical, are Pentecostal or charismatic.

The Assemblies of God are the largest group, and some of their churches are fairly doctrinal and balanced, though many would disagree with their views on spiritual gifts.

However, many others are into all sorts of things, and there are actually some breakaway “Assembly of God” movements, generally referred to as AOG “ministerios”, that have their own emphases, and are separate from the main Assemblies of God group.

There are other mainstream Pentecostal churches like the “Quadrangular” or Foursquare Church, and an Italian influenced church called the Congregacao de Cristo. This last one has a fascinating mode of worship, as they shun CCM and rock type worship, and only sing old congregational hymns. Men and women sit separately, the women wear scarves, and the hymns are accompanied by a very large all male orchestra, in the body of the church, and on the other side a solo female organist who plays an electronic organ!!

Brazil Christians are most Pentecostal charismatic, emergent church, and a mixture between afro religion and catholicism. Not a very solid foundation and the new president that got lot of suport from the evangelicals and has a Baptist wife still label himself as roman Catholic, and is pushing a strong ecumenical agenda.

What a great story, and source--the Jewish News Syndicate! I never knew that evangelicals made up such a large proportion of the Brazilian society (and conversely, that they make up so little of the US).
Of course, none of this you would know from watching your local news or reading local newspapers.

Apparently every cloud has a silver lining. Brazilian Pentecostalists at least aren't anti-Israel.

...David Roozen of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research said, “If someone is going to be religious in today’s world, it (Pentecostalism) has a lot more pizzazz than sitting around reading an old book. With Pentecostalism [you] can call on the spirit; there is an element of control.”...
....
Many also see it as “God is actively here, we can touch Him, and feel Him, and see Him at work with healing and speaking of tongues,” Roozen added. This notion sits well with many in countries where there is no middle class. The very poor in these cultures have very little access to anything personally that makes them feel powerful....
