What happened once again shows the danger of not following Jesus words of “those taking up the sword (gun) will perish by the sword (gun).

WINONA, Texas (AP) — A pastor was killed and two other people were injured in a shooting at an East Texas church Sunday after the pastor confronted a man who had hidden from police in the church overnight, a local sheriff

 

Authorities had been using dogs and drones to search for the man late Saturday in woods near Winona following a car chase, and the pastor of the nearby Starrville Methodist Church discovered him hiding in a church bathroom Sunday morning, Smith County Sheriff Larry Smith said at a news conference.

 

Smith said he did not know why the man was initially being pursued but that the license plates on his vehicle were "fictitious."

 

The pastor drew a gun and ordered the man to stop, Smith said, but the man grabbed the weapon and began shooting with it. The pastor was killed, a second person was injured by gunfire and another was hurt in a fall.

Isaiah 33:24  "And no resident will say: “I am sick.”

Too many people in the US rely too much on firearms without having tactical and situational awareness training. The fact that the man got that close to take the firearm and then use it against him shows that.

 

This also applies to hands vs guns.
