LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Lifetime movies always have a wow factor, and this time a very controversial subject has been chosen rather than someone to make a movie about. Two weeks ago, Lifetime released the trailer for Gwen Shamblin: Starving for Salvation. The Lifetime’s minute-long trailer showcases Gwen Shamblin Lara’s ministry and influence. At one point, she tells her followers, “This demon is not food. It’s sin.” Elsewhere in the trailer, the character says, “Satan doesn’t give up,” “I’ve always had what I would call a crush on God,” and “Your stomach doesn’t need food. It takes God.” Another scene shows a man standing with his wife and son. He says to Shamblin Lara, “We will follow you wherever you lead us.”

But how much of this is really true? See Jennifer Gray portray the character of controversial religious leader Gwen Shamblin in the new Lifetime film Gwen Shamblin: Starving for Salvation out February 2023, but first, let’s find out whether or not she’s based on a true story.
