    For the average person and the staid Christian this behavior seems “demonic” but for those of us who know what’s going on, it’s just sad. Christians are so emotionally repressed that this is the only sanctioned outlet for them, which is why the charismatic movement has been booming for decades now. Repression will either be vented safely, as in this instance, or it will be vented murderously (Andrea Yates, etc.) Either way, emotions HAVE to come out.

    This seems to exemplify a classic case of mass hysteria.

    Ah, geeze… I remember going to churches where this sort of thing went on, as a kid. It was embarrassing, really. Same thing with a lot of things involved in the Charismatic churches, such as being “slain in the spirit” or speaking in tongues. Maybe I’m just not as suggestible as some people, but this stuff always seemed bizarre and unnatural to me (not to be confused with supernatural), even as a kid raised and deeply rooted in such churches. At first I thought there was something wrong with me, but I rather quickly concluded that these people were just crazy.

    Quester,

    It is hard enough to defend the faith without being lumped in with people like those on the video. But all is fair…

    This is what the church has been missing out on for a looooong time :

Attention Christian Readers

Just in case you were wondering who we are and why we de-converted.

de-conversion wager

Whether or not you believe in God, you should live your life with love, kindness, compassion, mercy and tolerance while trying to make the world a better place. If there is no God, you have lost nothing and will have made a positive impact on those around you. If there is a benevolent God reviewing your life, you will be judged on your actions and not just on your ability to blindly believe in creeds- when there is a significant lack of evidence on how to define God or if he/she even exists.
