This is a great behind-the-scenes documentary film made in 1972 on an evangelist preacher named Marjoe. He was raised by his parents from an incredibly young age of less than 4-years-old to preach to churches around the USA to make them a great deal of money. He believes now in hindsight that he probably made them up to 3 million dollars or more from the age of 4 to his mid teens. None of which he ever saw, or was ever spent on his education or upbringing but to train him as a child preacher to make his parents even more money.
He takes the camera behind the mask of his evangelism and tells the audience exactly what he thinks, feels and believes when it comes to Christianity and his job as an evangelist preacher. It’s pretty disturbing when you hear Marjoe speak about what he does. He seems like a pretty nice and gentle soul, but is using his preaching skills nowadays (in the 1970s at least) to make money off of blissfully ignorant Christians. It’s pretty creepy when you see him change between these two people, his normal self and his preaching self. It makes you think just how many preachers are in the same boat, not believing a bar of what they preach and yet having few options as that’s all they’ve ever known or done to make an income. Anyway, have a look for yourselves!
