Co-Defendant; God

You know, as a Christian, I never cease to be amused/embarrassed by other so-called Christians in the news. Here's a story in today's news which should entertain you. Feel free to comment. You just can't make this stuff up:

(07-10) 10:45 PDT Knoxville, Tenn. (AP) --

A man says he was so consumed by the spirit of God that he fell and hit his head while worshipping.

Now he wants Lakewind Church to pay $2.5 million for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Matt Lincoln says he is suing after the church's insurance company denied his claim for medical bills.

The 57-year-old has had two surgeries since the June 2007 injury but still feels pain in his back and legs.

He says he was asking God to have "a real experience" while praying.

Lincoln says he has fallen from the force of the spirit before but has always been caught by someone.

Lawyers for the church say other congregants saw him on the floor laughing after his fall. They say he failed to look out for his own safety.
