Neopentecostalism can be understood as a form of religious enchantment, informed by eschatology and embodied in song, dance and positive confession. The messages and songs emphasise intimate and touching individualism, the search for the material and the present. Divine blessing is a material blessing: health and wealth. It is an electronic from of religion that is mediated via television, radio and cyberspace.
