I know of one true story of amazing spirituual encounter which was certainly life-altering:

It is the story of a girl who was pretty and popular, a member of her high school drill team and a good student. But when she was 14, her brother committed suicide. Ten years later her father, a recovering alcoholic, did the same. So when a job supervisor introduced her to a church at the age of 18, she embraced it as a surrogate family. She was very dedicated to her new family. In 1994, she spent more than one half of her income on church courses and worked for a publishing company with close ties to the that church. Even her holidays she spent on a church ship and helped spearhead community projects of her church.

On September 8, 1995, she wrote to a newspaper:

"It is hard for me to imagine anyone, especially one of our own city commissioners, objecting to Santa Claus and singing and to a church that wants to put this on. It looks like this has become a controversial issue - the holidays, of all things! I find it quite silly. The park is the perfect place for these activities and I look forward to seeing it.

Her wish to see Santa Clause and the singing was in vain. She never saw it. And it is doubtful she would have been there on her own free-will if she had not had her life-altering experience. You see, after spending half her life as a member, she told friends that she was ready to get out. At 36, she yearned to reunite with her mom and old friends and start a new life. But unbeknowst to most people, her church has a practice which calls for the isolation of members when they go bezerk.

When she had a minor traffic accident, she sheds her clothes and walks nude down the street, the police take her to the hospital to see a psychiatric nurse, and against medical advice she leaves with friends. Those friends take her to their church where she spends her last seventeen days in isolation as is prescribed by her church. During her first week of captivity she routinely urinated and defecated on herself and rarely slept and had conversations with people who were not there, claimed to be people she was not, sang and danced around the room as if giving a performance, crawled around on the floor, stood on the toilet, got in the shower fully clothed, tried to walk out of the room in a state of undress and on at least one occasion drank her own urine.

Church members kept a watchful eye on her and made extensive notes how she deteriorated rapidly while forcing medication on her without her consent and without appropriate medical supervision. Fourteen days after entering the church in good physical health, she was so weak she couldn't stand, according to the notes.

On 5 December 1995, church members drive her to a hospital more than 20 miles away (a 45 minutes drive) in another county, passing 4 other emergency rooms.

She is dead on arrival.

The Medical Exeminar, Dr. Joan Wood, has said: "This is the most severe case of Dehydration I've even seen" and that the deceased church member must have gone at least 5 to 10 days without any liquids.

Her name? Lisa McPherson
