Knoxville, TN: 57-year-old Matt Lincoln is suing Lakewind Church for $2.5 million after the church's insurance denied his medical bill claims. Lincoln injured himself while praying and asking for a "real experience."
At a June 2007 prayer service, Lincoln claims he was overcome by the spirit and fell. However, he also claims that pastors of the church did not make sure anyone caught him. Lincoln says he "hit full force backwards."
A year and two surgeries later and still in constant pain, Lincoln says, "There's no amount of money that can compensate for what's happened to me. My life is totally altered."
