For only $45 you can establish a point of contact with God via a gold-plated coin engraved with President Trump and King Cyrus’ faces — according to the ‘Jim Bakker Show’ at least. The coin is being peddled by Lance Wallnau, who claims God told him people need it to pray for Trump. ‘When I asked the Lord, ‘Why the coin?’ he said ‘Because when you take the coin, it’s a point of contact,’ Wallnau said in the recording. ‘So your faith is being released with a million other believers to pray protection and peace and wisdom and counsel over the president of the United States and over his family.’

You don’t need a material object, much less a 24-carat gold coin, as a point of contact with the Almighty. A seeking and yearning soul is all that is required to make contact with the Supreme Being. Only a con artist would make the patently ridiculous claim that a gold coin, engraved with Trump’s face, conducts the divine energy the same way wire conducts electricity. Only a Trump cultist would swallow such hogwash. Wallnau is destined to make millions of the ignorance of Trump supporters.
Wallnau claims that if millions of believers use the coins as a “point of contact” that their faith will be released, and I guess that means that Jehovah will smite godless liberals, rain down fire on abortion clinics, and strike immigrants with boils until they return to their godforsaken countries.
If there’s a heaven I’m sure it will be populated with the poor and undocumented immigrants who put their faith in God, and if there’s a hell I’m sure it will be populated with the likes of Lance Wallnau, Jim Bakker, Donald Trump and millions of white evangelicals who put their faith in their False Messiah.
