I was attracted to the Pentecostal/Charismatic movement since my conversion to the faith in the early seventies. My hometown contained one of the bigger charismatic preachers, Lester Sumrall, who was…Continue

I am looking for stories of people leaving their religion and becoming atheist. I am writing a book. My story as a former muslim will be included.

Sure I'll give you one but it would be nice to know what it is for.

Did I miss something? Oh well, here it is: Amen brother.

@Billy As Linda pointed out, the Charismatic church has been evolving over the past century. It and Pentecostalism seeks to have the spiritual experiences of the New Testament apostles. These include speaking in tongues, healing, among other miraculous events.

@ T. Duker - So you have seen her before. I'm not even sure she is still alive; I assume she is though.


@ Billy Clutch - I think "charasmatic church" is probably an outdated term these days but back in the 80's a charasmatic church was thought of generally as a church that practiced the prosperity teaching, speaking in tongues, and healing. Think Jim and Tammy Fay Baker and the PTL Club.

I'm neither ex-pentecostal or Charismatic but I am curious about this Charismatic church. What is it about, if I may ask?

@Linda I can definitely relate. I remember seeing her and her daughter on tv

Yeah, 30 years ago when I belonged to a Charasmatic church I was "slain in the spirit" once. It was weird. I have heard that it is a phenomena called "group hypnosis" or some kind of hysteria thing.


If I recall correctly, the name of the evangelist was Marilyn Hickey. I was not in any kind of excitable mood that I could tell. I was just standing in line waiting my turn. When it was my turn she just touched her finger lightly to my forhead and boom I was out for about two or three seconds, at the longest.


It still weirds me out when I think about it; not that it makes me question my atheism at all, but it was just freaking weird.
