How is it that various instantiations of this diagram collapse, mutate, or colonize other aspects of the world? This chapter addresses the various failure-states and limits of the charismatic diagram. It addresses de-conversion, but also the production and adoption of even more extreme aspects of Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity (and the role that a larger Christian mediascape plays in these intensifications and mutations). It closes with a discussion of how the charismatic diagram can be effectuated in places that seem to be organized by different logics, such as exchange or politics; concluding with the observing that the charismatic diagram is equally capable of animating progressive as well as conservative political projects.

Keywords:   Deconversion, Religious change, Religion and exchange, Religion and politics, Progressive Christianity
