Lo volví a leer ahora que acabo de ver la película "Nada que perder" basada en el Este libro cuenta la historia de los inicios de Edir Macedo y de la Iglesia.

Eu olho para frente. O sol, as nuvens, a lua, as estrelas. Por onde viajo, passo horas olhando para o horizonte azul e meditando em Deus. O sol aquece meu corpo. Olho para dentro de mim.

Era o alimento de sua alma. Sigo esse exemplo. Me fazem pensar. A clausura me agoniza.

Que ser humano consegue viver feliz sem poder. Parecem coisas simples, elementares, mas, apenas por um instante, imagine-se vivendo sem o controle de suas atitudes.

In the late s Brazil was going through a particularly complicated moment in its history. The government was decidedly Roman Catholic—as the majority of the population— and the country was governed by a right-wing military dictatorship.

NADA A PERDER 1

In the s, Brazil was characterized by rapid urbanization and striking economic disparity. Although the Brazilian GDP was growing, such growth did not bring better conditions for the lower classes.

Conditions were improving statistically for the country as a whole, but among the poor infant mortality was high, life expectancy was low, and illiteracy was significant. The focus on the supernatural that would characterize the UCKG was not unusual to its founder and leader, Edir Macedo, who was socialized into the enchanted world of Brazilian folk Catholicism.

Universal Church of the Kingdom of God

Macedo was born poor in He would also use ritual tools that incorporated elements of both religious traditions. As a matter of fact, one of the central appeals of the UCKG is its ritual-symbolic synthesis of Pentecostalism and Catholicism as well as its identity constructed in relation to the legitimization of and resistance to Afro-Brazilian practices.

Mario Justino, who was a leader in the church before leaving and becoming one of its greatest critics, highlights this fact when he writes that In the UCKG there is only one standard formula for the worship service. This spiritual show is divided in two parts and reaches its climax when the exorcisms take place. In this sense, the UCKG differs from both its Catholic and Protestant competitors in that it counteracts the tendency of the first to consider Afro-Brazilian religiosity a valid cultural expression and of the latter of practically dismissing Afro-Brazilian sects.

In contrast to most of the secondary literature on this issue, I think that more emphasis should be given to the fact that this synthesis is not only liturgical but also theological because there is a sense in which the UCKG subverts the Protestant move away from Catholic ritual presence and towards pedagogical representation through its emphasis on the physical mediation of the numinous. In the second volume of his autobiography, Macedo writes: In conjunction with the day to day experience of church life, I concluded that there are people who can only liberate their faith when, for example, they receive anointing with oil on the place of their infirmity, a consecrated rose to bless their homes, blessed salt to help their businesses, or even drinking a chalice with pure water.

In a sense, the UCKG is an effective bridge-builder whose success is connected to its facilitation of the transition from other forms of supernaturalism to its own religious meetings.

The names of the demons were clearly recognizable as entities of Afro-Brazilian religions. In this particular instance, the demons were so insistent that Macedo had to order the demons to stay quiet while he would finish preaching his message before he could resume the exorcism—the demons promptly obeyed and the man stayed on his knees until Macedo finished preaching.

When the exorcism was finished Valdecir, the newly liberated man, said how he was feeling much better. While Macedo never really said it, it was clear: These were the rules of the game: Such examples illustrate that if one is prone to live in a world where spiritual entities are a constant reality, the UCKG may be a compelling option.

And this message endorsed by God and Satan does not limit itself to the demonization of competitors, but it is also used, for instance, to demonize homosexuals. The potential for such performances is broad. There are other neo-Pentecostal churches that use similar strategies to sometimes counteract, as in the case of the Igreja Mundial do Poder de Deus, the very criticisms made during UCKG exorcisms and to further their own agendas.

It must also be said that not all Pentecostal churches and denominations have embraced these practices and some Brazilian Pentecostals criticize such performances, but the visibility of the UCKG, given that it owns the second largest TV station in Brazil, magnifies exposure of Brazilians to such practices. This phenomenon raises many questions, among which the most important is perhaps the stability of religious tolerance in Brazil as it presently exists.

Afro-Brazilian religious groups increasingly claim to be victims of discrimination, intolerance, and even violence and the perpetrators of such alleged actions are usually Neo-Pentecostal churches among which the most well-known is the UCKG. In March of this year, for example, representatives of Afro-Religious groups requested that the Brazilian government start an investigation of the UCKG in general and of a group called Gladiators of the Altar, which is affiliated with the church, in particular.

The Gladiators of the Altar is a group created in the end of with around 5, young men who wear uniform and use army-language in its meetings. When will we pay attention to the monster that is swimming towards the shore? According to the UCKG, the Gladiators of the Altar is a bible study group that uses a military theme but deploy such theme spiritually.

Be that as it may, Afro-Brazilian religious groups have been complaining about religious intolerance significantly over the last few years, and it is to the Neo-Pentecostal that they point their fingers most often. Ritual practices in which others are demonized may indeed have an effect in the social imagination of those who participate in such rituals. Perhaps some of the forms of religious intolerance that are appearing today in Brazil may be correlated to the UCKG form of exorcism performance.

The conundrum is that if we are to have an honest dialogue about religious freedom, perhaps we may have to leave the freedom of the UCKG to perform such exorcisms on the table.

While Macedo never really said it, it was clear: the Catholic Church and Afro- Brazilian religions are in cahoots and the UCKG had the answer for liberating men and women from the evil spirits that oppress them and women from the evil spirits that oppress them through their husbands.

Such examples illustrate that if one is prone to live in a world where spiritual entities are a constant reality, the UCKG may be a compelling option.

The infant mortality rate, for instance was around out of every thousand.Second, I will focus on the way in which the particular form of exorcisms practiced by the UCKG functions as a tool for the demonization of alternative religious institutions with which the UCKG competes in the Brazilian religious market. Apparently, a movie has been made about this episode in this bishop's life.

Comparing the socio-economic status of the average UCKG member to that of the rest of the Brazilian population he says: Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

The churches of this period emphasize holiness and practice tongues and healing.
