The Sounds of Fundamentalism: Tunnel of Fire, a New Charismatic Practice


charismatic faith healer

This is the one hundred and seventy-sixth installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism features clips of a new Charismatic practiced called Tunnel of Fire. Charismatic churches are always on the look out for new methods and gimmicks to arouse the passions of congregants. The Tunnel of Fire is one such practice.

    I think that if Jesus was a real person, and he came back today and saw this, he would think, WTF?

    As someone who doesn’t like people touching me, and especially touching my head, it is good that I didn’t grow up in this strain of Christianity. I probably would have decked someone.

    Honestly this is just false advertising, where is the actual fire or tunnel for that matter. I would set up a bunch of flaming hoops like the ones used in circus as well as a bunch of fog machines to give it that otherworldy feel. I would then have people dressed up in angel costumes or something for the hand laying and maybe the touched by sn angel theme on loop. Of course you could also add red lighting and have people in demon costumes to scare/abuse/indoctrinate/prey/torture/force kids into believing instead, but why come up with evidence when you can emotionally manipulate your followers/sheep/target/prey.
