Gwen Shamblin Cause Of Death, Obituary Unavailable Yet – Cults make prophetic promises they almost never keep, forcing them to alter those claims in order to keep their followers in line and their scams going. Few have faced a greater challenge in this regard than Gwen Shamblin, the founder, and leader of the Remnant Fellowship Church, who preached that being faithful to God—primarily by maintaining a slim waistline and teaching children to be docile and subservient—brought glorious financial, familial, and spiritual rewards.
According to msn.com, That was fine during the rich Remnant Fellowship era, but it became a major issue on May 29, 2021, when a jet piloted by Shamblin’s husband Joe Lara crashed on its route to a Florida MAGA rally, killing Shamblin and everyone else on board instantly.
That tragedy served as a de facto cliffhanger for HBO Max’s docuseries The Way Down God, Greed, and the Cult of Gwen Shamblin, which premiered in September, and it’s where director Marina Zenovich picks up with The Way Down Part 2, a two-part coda that looks into what this disaster has meant for the Remnant Fellowship Church and Shamblin’s attendant Weigh Down Workshop diet business.
The latter was the mechanism via which Shamblin, a nutritionist who advocated that real believers should channel their need for food into devotion to the Almighty, initially rose to prominence and money. It was a program that argued that losing weight was a religious act, and it became a nationwide sensation thanks to books, VHS videos, and in-church classes.
The obituary will be published online by the family and will contain funeral plans, dates, and burial arrangements.
