Charismatic Chaos: Bark at the Moon

September 24, 2010

You know what really confuses me about these videos? Not the fact that people are doing these things as several of you have pointed out different scientific explanations for acting like this. What really confuses me? Why the Sheol anyone would think, after recording this chaos, “Hey, we should put this on Youtube!”

I. Just. Don’t. Get. It. Someone give me a rational explanation. Please.

When the dude starts shaking at 0:47: any suggestions as to what is possibly going through his ultra-bored wife’s mind?

Seriously, look at her, she does not want to be there.

    She’s quenching the spirit .. brother.

    Seriously, there are a whole bunch of folk whose brain goes out of the window as soon as experience of any kind is involved. I think David Wells was correct in suggesting that for a large percentage of the evangelical world experience – because it cannot be denied – is automatically self authenticating.

    I don’t think it would even occur to any of these folk that there could be any other explanation than the Holy Spirit turning up .. feathers and all.

      Well, there’s another explanation for True Believers “whose brain goes out the window” than “The Holy Spirit turning up feathers and all”, and we see it in the YouTube title “DEMONS (TM) Going Berserk in Church”.

      Because any Spiritual Warfare Type KNOWS Everything I Don’t Approve Of (or that happens to anyone else but Me) is done by God’s Much More Powerful Opposite Number. (After all, if God didn’t have Me on His Side (or is that the other way round?), Satan Would Win.) Maybe these Spiritual Warriors/Discerners are afraid they backed the losing side or something, so they have to keep convincing themselves?

        Oh yeah – but i was thinking about naturalistic explanations. Of course – per previous discussion, the average holy roller in such circles would label mesmerism ‘Satanic’.

    FYI, I know of this church – Water of Life in Plano, TX – and the pastor, Doyle Davidson. He’s a real piece of work: http://exposedd.wordpress.com/

      From the headline at the site:

      …he claims his “Gawd” told him to take another man’s wife twice already.

      I read that and thought “How convenient for him…”

      Or in the words of Beavis & Butthead —
      “HE SCORED! HEH-HUH! HEH-HUH! HEH-HUH!”

    More than the wife, I’m very disturbed by the kid’s behavior. Certainly, he’s seen this many times before, and he senses on hostility from his father, and of course his mother is very, very calm. All the same, he remains sitting next to his dad throughout, happily playing with some toy. I know, my kid would’ve either joined in or tried to get as far as he could from the ruckus.

    … senses no hostility …

    It’s really hilarious to think people of God should go to church to fellowship, worship him and hear the word of God preached. On the contrary these here people go to “baying at the moon” and well probably this was a controlled service but the follow on from the above scene is usually being slain in the spirit. Where of course you suspend all senses and take a snooze. Yes, in church! Even pagans and muslims have a sense to go to their places of worship to learn and not sleep.

    Hello All,

    I was part of this group for over twenty years, and was actually one of the main dancers for many of those years. After all the false prophesies, dead babies (two that I know of, including Dena Schlosser’s- just google her name), and funerals for adults, my eyes began to open. It’s been several years since I have left and have been blowing the trumpet on this group ever since, on various blogs and websites. The site Eric mentioned (see above) exposes Doyle Davidson daily. He is still on TV and has a live stream show nightly. We have posted thousands of comments about DD’s tactics and many of us have confronted him in person and on the internet. He has ruined many marriages and families and claims he has walked perfectly before God for over 40 years. He claims to preach the Gospel, but once he defines it, he twists the scriptures to build his own little kingdom where his minions idolize him. His latest claim to fame is that several people on his staff are direct descendants of the Mayflower (we call them MF’s) and this is proof that God sent the MF’s to this country so DD could one day preach his perverted gospel. Like any other cult, only they have the truth and are part of the “elect” overcomers, because they dance, pray, march, shout, bind and quake. The fact that they “cast out devils” makes them part of the elite group of believers who are sancified from the rest of the world. You can clearly notice this on DD’s FB page where his only “fans” are his own church members. He will not tolerate any one questioning or criticizing his arrogant words and actions. They shun their ex-members and DD has slandered me publically because I have spoken the truth against him and his manipulative spirit. You can always send him a friend invite on FB and see what kind of response you get. But don’t hold your breath if he doesn’t know you and is certain that you will exalt him!

      “Main dancer” as in the chicks in the long dresses with the tambourines at the beginning?

      After all the false prophesies, dead babies (two that I know of, including Dena Schlosser’s- just google her name)…

      I did. Assuming the Dana Schlosser who killed her baby in 2004 with a double-arm amputation is the one you’re talking about, my first Google page showed two hits on her out of a dozen unrelated hits with the same name. Both hits were from sites using the kid’s death as a weapon for their Culture War Political Agenda.

    sorry, you will probably need to cut and paste the link, or run a search under Doyle Davidson to find his FB page…

    by the way, the man you first see in the clip “binding” is Terry Mai, Doyle’s son in law. He is now deceased and the last time I set foot in that place was at his funeral.

      Guy couldn’t “bind” his own death, huh?

    Hello headless unicorn:

    Yes, the dancers in my day, however, did not dance (worship) in a circle around Doyle. He stood on the stage or elsewhere in the sanctuary as we danced in front of the stage (horizonatally) Now they dance in a vertical motion AROUND their idol.

    The Dena Schlosser who slaughtered her daughter is the one who attended WOL. There are many news articles which reported this sad event, and yes, some used the incident for their own purposes. The heart of man is desperately wicked.

    When Terry died, he was elevated to martyr level by his father in law, claiming that the Jezebel killed him due to Terry’s faith and the threat he posed to the kingdom of darkness.
