Gunman slays 20-24 people at Texas church

A gunman walked in the Fist Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, during Sunday prayers, and began shooting.  A police commissioner at the scene confirmed that 20-24  people had died and 30  more were injured before police shot the gunman dead. No member of the congregation of more than 50, most families with children, apparently escaped unhurt. The FBI has arrived on the scene. There is no indication of the gunman’s motive. While only one shooter was seen by witnesses, investigators are looking into other possibilities. Sutherland Springs is a tiny community of around 400 souls some 58 km east of San Antonio. At least six helicopters landed to take injured victims to hospital.

    This nation needs Jesus. Every other fix is a bandaid on a broken leg. The only one that can heal the hate in your heart and the inner turmoil is Jesus Christ. Everything else is a lie. Hang onto that truth as this world slides further from the truth. Even if you don’t believe now…..keep watching this world follow the exact steps that God warned the world would take in the end days.

    On point. A world without Christ is a disaster unfolding. Jesus said: I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father but by Me.

    I have already read about this on several so-called “Christian right-wing conservative” news websites today. And every single one of them show that over 95% of the comments are people claiming to be Christian, yet, they have instantly turned this tragedy into a political issue. Many are also either making a lot of tasteless jokes about it or are claiming it didn’t really happen.

    Although I am not at all surprised with the responses from many self-proclaimed Christians on those websites, I am still thoroughly disgusted with each of the people leaving those comments. And it seems like the ignorance has indeed spread to this site as well. Again, not at all surprised.

    God’s word warns believers that this type of thing will happen in these specified times. I am not shocked at such news. I welcome it with open arms, knowing that the Bible says the Lord will not return until things like this do happen. I only hope that those who were shot had become true believers before that moment. I also pray for the loved ones of the victims, that this will draw them deeper into the Word and closer to God.

      Breitbart was flooded with an army of trolls that seemed to be organized on the Left. There was an instantaneous politicization of this tragedy on the left and your comment makes no sense.

      Trump probably praying its a Mexican at #sutherlandsprings to justify his wall bullshit. Sorry, its a crazy white guy with a gun, AGAIN.

    Very sad as this is, this is a warning to the Lukewarm church in the western world who have often more of the ways of the world (devil) in the church than the Holiness of God. Judgement begins at the house of God (1Peter 4v17), BUT God will destroy the wicked For Ever, they will not escape His Final Judgement, Eternal Damnation.

    There are strong indications the shooter was a supporter of Antifa. He had been dishonorably discharged from the Air Force and should not have been allowed to buy a gun. He was shot by a local as he fled. His FaceBook and Twitter accounts have been taken down but some archive records indicate what I said at the top. If in fact he was Antifa and leaned Left, CNN may have played a role in his radicalization.
