Where is the foundation for that so called sign gift? Or is it a sign that confirms no faith as those who believe not the word of God prophecy ?

There is no such thing as being "slain in the Spirit".
Only the sound of that word, SLAIN, should be enough to convince you that it is wrong.
It is blasphemy.

There is Jesus saying to the disciples He will baptize them with the Holy Spirit and fire.

And the baptism is something that happened at pentecost when the 1st local church was empowered by the Holy Spirit

Nothing about being 'slain'

Who claims that it's a sign gift? Perhaps you could quote them so we know you're not simply tilting at the wind.

John 18:5-7
They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.

6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.

7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.(what about this)
.they went backward, and fell to the ground.

Numbers 20:30-31 (he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face)
And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? and he said, Nay.

31 Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.

i have wondered this myself as the diff. in falling backwards and falling forward?

In this one the men who were coming for Jesus were thrown back by the power of the Lord..

I was being prophesied over, and as soon as the minister said, woman of the Word...the power of God hit me in the stomach, and I went down forward, then backward. Lol

Guess I'm covered then. Haha.

Ez.1:28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so [was] the appearance of the brightness round about. This [was] the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw [it], I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

Rev. 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

The live-action roleplay is strong in charismatic churches. Its ridicilous.

I know of one case where the lady was faking the funk as usual, and someone DIDNT catch her, and she got hurt, tried to get money for surgery from the church and aint got none. Hilarious. Unfortunately for her, the healing prayers didnt work either.

Do I feel bad about it? Not at all, im glad its being exposed for the fraud it is. I advice everyone not to catch these liars.

This one is SPREADING like wildfire, destroying the entire continent of Africa almost. These charlatans like Benny Hinn, Creflo Dollar, you name it have been exposed over and over again, and poor desperate people still wait in line to be healed and have their money taken. The peer pressure is strong.
The lack of teaching/preaching/doctrine in these churches also equals to LOTS of worldliness and wickedness.

This fits in well with the coming antichrist agenda with its lack of biblical authority, liberalism and 'false signs and wonders' that we were warned of in the last days.

The people fell were the enemy of Jesus

Slain in spirit what we see now is people that want to accept Jesus.

To be honest I have no idea what the foundation reason or significance of it is but I have experienced it before. It kind of came out of nowhere and I suddenly lost all strength in my body mind and soul it was almost like I didn't even exist yet the second I fell I was in fathers arms like actually in his arms not just how people always say we are in his arms but mentally spiritually and physically in his arms.

The love that was being poured into me was like nothing I have ever known or even fathomed could exist, his arms were so warm and inviting and I was home it was my heaven my home my very reason of being created and the love he was pouring into me was so deep and so rich that I couldn't handle it. It was only a tiny drop of his love and yet it was so deep and so rich that I cried out and begged for him to take me and let me rest in his arms forever. But then I saw in my minds eye me on the ground as I had lost all strength and then I saw him lifting my up with his hand wanting me to stand and be strong but I stopped him saying I didn't want to be stand because I knew if I did I would not be in his arms like that anymore but then he spoke saying I need you to be strong for me and his words alone gave my soul and body it's strength again.

People discount being slain in the spirit and while I have no idea why it is or for what reason it is I can assure you it's very real

Amen there seems to be pattern of falling back or going backward to illustrate as a sign a person is under the fiery judgement of God .

Interestingly both Judas which you offered above to represent the new testament side of the cross with apostles as the one missing in the description of the bride of Christ along with Dan missing as those represented as gates or tribes.

Genesis 49:17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

Jeremiah 7:24 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

Isaiah 28:13But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

1 Samuel 4:18And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck brake, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years.

Psalm 70:2Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.

Again, who is claiming that it is a "sign gift"?
Those that use the doctrine as a sign to confirm something. .What do you think the sign confirms and in respect to who? Does it confirm those who do believe prophecy, God's word, or those who refuse to hear God by faith but rather they do whatsoever their own mouth declares??( Jerimiah 44)

So, who are they? Names, quotations, anything? Or are you just content to make up a "doctrine" that "some people" allegedly believe, and rail against it? Do you really have nothing better to do?
