Gwen Shamblin, who founded Remnant Fellowship Church in 1999 after the success of her Christian diet program “The Weigh Down Workshop,” was dogged by accusations that her church was more of a cult than a religious institution, according to News 5 in Nashville. Followers claimed to view her as a prophet and the station previously reported a recording in which she praised parents for locking up their child as a form of obedience training.
Those parents, Joseph and Sonya Smith, were convicted of murdering their son in 2007. The Remnant Church was raided as part of the investigation.
During an appearance on Larry Ling’s show, Shamblin told the interviewer that she looked at concentration camps in devising her weight loss program.
