In 1992, Steve Martin starred in a movie titled Leap of Faith. It was about a con artist named Jonas Nightengale. Jonas would roll into town with a caravan of trucks, set up a tent, and announce that he was there to lead healing services. As people arrived, his fellow con artists would mingle with the crowd, listen for people’s ailments, and feed that information back to Jonas. Jonas would then take the stage in a silver-sequined jacket, announce that someone was there “named Jackie who had Cancer,” or “Ted who lost his job.” He would then bring them on stage, pray for them, and announce that if they had enough faith their problems would be solved.
