NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — How does one process the feelings of betrayal by a religious leader — especially when that religious leader is also family?

That’s something that Michael Shamblin — son of the late Gwen Shamblin, the controversial religious figure from Brentwood — is still trying to figure out.

“People wonder, how do people buy into cults or how do they buy into these churches or charismatic leaders? It was my mother, and I went along with everything,” Shamblin said in an exclusive interview with NewsChannel 5 Investigates.

Michael Shamblin, who’s now trying to create a new professional identity under the name Michael S. Black, noted that his mother was once almost a “rock star” in the Christian diet world. Her Weigh Down Workshop found a home in thousands of churches.

She later founded her own church, the Remnant Fellowship.

Not only did Michael Shamblin go along with it, he and his sister became part of Gwen’s Remnant Fellowship show. Michael brought the musical talent, while his sister brought the eloquence for public speaking.
