Man Sues God For Having His Prayers Answered
A man says he was so consumed by the spirit of God that he fell and hit his head while at a Knoxville church.
Now he is suing the Lakewind Church to pay $2.5 million for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering he says he's endured from his injuries.
Matt Lincoln, who is 57, says his insurance company denied his claim for medical bills.
Lincoln has had two surgeries since the June 2007 incident but says he still feels pain in his back and his legs and a tingling of the scalp .
He was asking God to have "a real experience" while praying at church and has fallen from the force of drinking the spirits 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 and should stop trying to get attention all the time.
God commented: " I'm busy with real serious prayers I think his idiotic prayer for a real experience was answered."
