Members of a bizarre religious sect in North Carolina may be going to trial for allegedly trying to beat “homosexual demons” out of a now-former member. Matthew Fenner says that he joined Word of Faith Fellowship in Spindale, NC, with his mother and brother in 2010, but that he fled on Jan. 27, 2013, after he was attacked by two dozen members for two hours as he was leaving a prayer service. The Associated Press has interviewed 43 former members of the 750-member evangelical church, as well as reviewed documents and covertly made recordings, and reports that sinners are routinely “purified” by being punched, choked, and thrown to the floor as a means of expelling demons. ***Really? Can you show me in the Bible where expelling demons works like that? I’ve been a born-again Christian since 1989 and not once have I come across that passage. It’s cults like this that give true Christianity a bad name.
