Raw Story: The only time I saw Brother Sam in person, he was marching like a soldier as he preached, with sweat running like tears from his temples and the Bible a heavy brick in his right hand.

It was 1978, I was five, and my family had traveled to Lubbock, Texas, for a Body Convention, which was what we called the semi-annual gatherings of hundreds, sometimes thousands, of members of The Body, or Body of Christ, an expansive network of charismatic communities created almost singlehandedly by Brother Sam.

My family lived on a Body Farm, a mostly off-grid outpost on the northern shore of Lake Superior, where I grew up singing, clapping, hollering and dancing in the Tabernacle aisles as shamelessly as King David. In our insular community, Holy Spirit-led practices like speaking in tongues, visions, prophecies, laying on hands and faith healing, altar calls, mass conversions, river baptisms and even demon deliverance were as commonplace as eating or sleeping or, for us children, playing with smooth stones in the frigid stream at the edge of the woods. Back then, if you had asked me if church scared me, I would have been confused by the question, and I would have said no. In retrospect, I was scared all the time.

If this were a face-to-face conversation, you might stop me here, as many have. “So, you grew up in a cult,” you might say, hoping to preface any further conversation with a caveat that my religious experience had to have been uniquely harrowing, an aberration of wholesome, mainstream American Christianity. After all, unlike The Body, most denominations and church networks don’t ask parishioners to sell their possessions and tithe half, or even all of their savings. read more…

  1. The whole article and all the previous comments, are totally irrelevant to all true believers who have “the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
    If the article upset you in any way other than for the lost who hold stock in it, then you may be in a state of jeopardy of which you are completely unaware.

    • Jeopardy? Like the game show? People are entitled to their religious and spiritual beliefs. Someone’s probably in for a big surprise down the road. But, not a fatal one.

  2. Let me fill you in.

    At every American high school military recruiters are allowed to talk to juniors about careers in the US Military. Evangelicals at chruch are all about thanking the other about their service at the local service.

    However, as long as that service is not from one of their children. The local kitchen table and for that matter the Churches themselves are controlled by women.
    If you fail to put this fact into your analysis of Evangelicals your conclusions will always come up skewed and full of error.
    Consider this a public service.

  3. Again VT writters have absolutely no clue what they are dealing with when it comes to Americans Evangelical community.
    The faith is mainstream and home town particularly in rural areas and most importantly in wealthy suburbs.

    They put Trump in power and are angry about the election and making matters worse? You have a sitting president calling white evangelicals public enemy number one.
    I wish you luck with your dear “win their hearts and minds” articles. LOL

    Evangelicals always mistrust government as that is historical and that’s why thousands come and will continue to come to Trump rallies.

    VT? The new CNN perhaps?

    • Bottom line for Evangelicals and the US Military? The best men come from these communities as these men are very conservative politically and really are awesome team players all things taught at the local church from bible study to youth group or camp all funded by parents and controlled by women as you have lost that support in our communities and moreover the Government itself is viewed as an open enemy.

      Huston we have a problem……
