This story is true and is congruent with current affairs.
When I was younger (late High School or Early College), I operated a sound booth at a local church. My parents attended a Assemblies of God church (my father had resigned from the ministry by this point and was working as a painter) in our area.
Leading a Service into Darkness
On this one Sunday, we had a guest speaker. This in itself was not unusual, but the speaker would turn out to be quite the character. His message was about a ministry he claimed to have worked – focusing on fighting abortion in the United States.
I can’t tell you for certain what his main activities were, as his emotional outburst was so extreme it overshadowed any actual data he may have presented. He spoke with a magnetic personality. His mannerisms, verbiage, and tone were all curt and borderline hostile.
As his message continued along, it grew increasingly dark. He had images and photos and diagrams of the unborn. He talked about the details of the abortion process. Women gasped, and men grew angry. I could feel the anger in the room.
I looked over at the pastor, who had a hand over his face – obviously unhappy with what was happening. He was watching an outsider take his congregation into hell. Not an eternal hell, but a mental hell of dark emotions.
