A young woman prays the benediction at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas. She subsequently has a breakdown of tears and shaking. She prays for the forgiveness of her own sins plus the sins of her peers who have accepted humanism and worshipped the intellectual mind. She starts to lose it when she begs for mercy and not judgment from her loving god. She begs for the mercy of this god onto the lives of the unsaved in the audience.And then… she gets pulled back from the podium and collapses in tears.
This, readers, is what it’s like for a charismatic Christian to be “overcome by the spirit.” I’ve had moments like that in my past, and I know how it feels.
I’m almost too embarrassed to watch it for a second time. What can I say except:
- This should not be taking place at a public university.
- I can spot a fake a mile away.
- They called for an ambulance at the end, but trust me, she’s fine… just hysterical.
- I feel bad for the students and the event as they were surely overshadowed by the theatrics of this one religious girl who lost it while praying.
