and needed to come home.

What is this place?

A church, I think.

Goddamn it.

Let it shine

This little light of mine

I'm gonna let it shine

This little light of mine

I'm gonna let it shine

This little light of mine

I'm gonna let it shine

Let it shine,

let it shine, let it shine

I'm gonna let it shine,

let it shine, let it shine

Thank you.

All right.

All right.

- Welcome.

- Welcome!


- This Bible don't lie.

- No, it don't!


It don't do nothin'

but tell God's plain truth...

every word.

Every word.

You don't get to pick and

choose, now, honey, do ya?

This ain't no ice cream parlor.

What do you like,

Smiling Bobby? Vanilla?


How about bubblegum?

It ain't like that, is it?

No, sir.

- No, it ain't!

- He knows it, Brother Bill.

You're either all in...

or you're out.

- That's right!

- You're out!

You are out into that lake of

fire to burn for eternity.

But it don't have to be that way.

Do it, Brother Sherman?

No, sir.

No, it don't.

And why is that?

Why is that?

That's because

Jesus sent us the Holy Ghost.

But there's only one way to

receive that spirit, isn't there?

We got to be in one accord.

- Are we in one accord?

- Yes!


Bless your name, holy Jesus.

Satan's sheddin'

big ol' tears tonight.


He's a big boy, ain't he?

I call him Satan,

'cause he's so big and mean.

It's these deadly serpents the Lord

sent us to handle... without fear.

Our hearts are filled

with the Holy Ghost. Mmm.

Get on up here, Brother Cole.

Satan wants to talk to you.


Where is she?

I don't know.

I'll be in the car.

You hear stories

trickling down the mountain...

of people up here following

their own sort of laws.

Old laws. You know?

The kind where blood gets shed

when they're broke.

Cops don't even come up here,
