Frankly, if this church's preachers are preaching baseless conspiracy theories and trying to manufacture healing and other charismatic spectacles, going so far as physical assault, it sounds like a church that's unhealthy to the point of being abusive. That's not preaching the Word of God or being receptive to the Spirit of God; that's trying to gain human power and authority through the manipulation of a crowd. Even if you don't feel like you can leave this church right now due to your commitment to your parents, at the very least I would encourage you to seek out a different church or Christian group with meetings at a different time you can attend, so that you can have some healthy Christian support in your life rather than what sounds like a situation in which you are dangerously isolated.Man i wish I could leave my current church;
One of the preachers there basically lied during his sermon by saying that the Large Hadron Collider broke down due to divine intervention (even though it's just turned off) in order to support his idea that God wants to stop humanity from unravelling reality with the LHC,
Another always does this stunt every sermon where he keeps trying to "guess" that one of the audience is having some sort of illness just so that he can pull off an on-stage healing on them, 99% of the time he tries it no one actually has the illness he called out on.
Also, I'm just not comfortable with their emphasis on the Holy Spirit and the Azuza Street Revival (literally every sermon they mention it), one time I prayed at the front two of the ushers there tried to cause me to fall down "by the power of the Holy Spirit" like what you see happen to people all the time in footages of Charismatic church prayers by physically pushing my chest.
