A pastor was recently caught on video bragging about punching a "bright kid" named "Ben" in the chest as hard as he could.
According to ChristianNightmares.tumblr.com, Pastor Eric Dammann of Bible Baptist Church in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, made the claim during a sermon that was uploaded to Vimeo, subsequently taken down, but uploaded again on YouTube (video below).
“We were outside one day at youth group,” said Pastor Dammann, noted RawStory.com. “And he was just trying to push my buttons. And he was just, you know, kinda not taking the Lord serious. And I walked over to him and I went 'bam.' I punched him in the chest as hard as I, I crumpled the kid. I just crumpled him.”
“And I said, I leaned over and I said, ‘Ben, when are you going to stop playing games with God?’ I led that man to the Lord right there,” added Pastor Dammann. "There's times when that might be needed."
