That’s awful, but you have to question the intellligence of people who fall for things like that, young or not… I was 10 when I decided I was an atheist, and would probably have laughed the whole way through that ‘exhibit’, along with my OH.

But yeah, obviously that’s no excuse; ripping you off $3 and wasting 2 hours of your time if nothing else. These people need some serious help..

sounds to me like you were kidnaped and mentally tortured for a couple of hours… maybe you should sue and they can pay your therapy haha, I am sorry you had to go through that!

I am Christian but that is definitely NOT the way to convert people, that is horrible! And there definitely are Christian drunk drivers, gang members etc.

ETA: I watched the video and was incredibly moved by it, it is a very good way of demonstrating God’s love. But I can understand after seeing all that other stuff it would not be as moving.

@ImaStarr:  I went through something like that when I was i college and it was called judgement house….it sounds exactly like what you are describing. We went thru a scene of teenagers who were in a car crash and then wound up in hell and we went thru that scene…..it was AWFUL. In the end, the one I went thru it had a scene of heaven which was the only nice part.

Just curious by chance was it put on by a Baptist church? The reason I ask b/c the one I went to was.

If you Google ‘the 99 walk through theater’ (it came up as an option when I searched ‘the 99’, you’ll find out a lot more information…articles about how it’s from an evangelical group, what it entails, etc..

It’s things like that that make people thing that Christians and churches are crazy. It’s just an extreme way to get a message across…using fear as a motivator, which is usually a terrible idea.

This link is from a facebook page about it.

Red flag one: It’s listed at a church.
Red flag two: The comments: “Yeah what a great event! How many new decisions to follow Christ do you think you had? That was amazing my daughter said.. ” and “Awesome experience! So many people were saved…

 

This article straight up calls it a “Christian Reality Theatre” and has a lot of god propoganda.

This link explains itself. “Evangelical group hopes to scare kids straight.”

There is a lot of links on the web that points it to being a christian/evangelical group.

@ImaStarr:  Uuugh. As a really strong Christian, I HATE that kind of thing so badly. It makes us look so bad. And you’re right, that isn’t Christian behaviour at all. Sounds like one of those cult Christian groups for sure.  That is totally messed up.  Sorry you had to go through that. Frown
