“I think democracy is on the line here,” one expert told ABC News.

This story is part of the ABC News series “Democracy in Peril,” which examines the inflection point the country faces after the Jan. 6 attacks and ahead of the 2022 election.

Religion has become a constant theme in the ongoing 2022 midterm election cycle, with candidates and other political figures invoking Biblical imagery at rallies, saying that God is on their side in a divinely inspired fight against evil.

Some candidates have promoted the idea that America — explicitly founded with no state religion — should go back to being a “Christian nation,” subject to Biblical dictates and led by someone they say was sent or inspired by God: Donald Trump.

Trump hardly discourages such talk. Speaking at a rally in Texas in late October, he told the audience, “As long as we are confident, united, and loyal to the cause, the tyrants we’re fighting do not stand even a chance. Because we are Americans, and Americans kneel to God and to God alone … We are one movement, one people, one family and one glorious nation under God.”

At a Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Nashville, Tennessee, in June, he told the audience that “we believe that America’s destiny depends on upholding the Judeo-Christian values and principles of our nation’s founding, and above all else, we know this: in America we don’t worship government — we worship God.”
