New Life Church Shooting

I was shocked to hear tonight that there was a shooting at New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO, this morning. One person was killed, three others were wounded. The gunman just walked into the foyer after the 11 a.m. service with an assault rifle and opened fire. There were parents picking up their children from nurseries nearby and people all over the foyer.

New Life is the church that was pastored by Ted Haggard before he was fired last year for sexual immorality.

Can you believe it?? I am so sad for that church. My spirit is just grieving for them. The more I think about it, the angrier I get about it. The enemy has had a field day on them.

We just can’t forget that we are in a real, spiritual battle. The devil doesn’t want the Church to flourish…he wants Her destroyed. But we can’t be afraid; and we shouldn’t be, if we are in Christ. No weapon formed against us shall prosper, and our hope is in Jesus. Even still, to be apart from the body is to be together with Christ (for the Christian).

By the way, the gunman was stopped when he was shot dead by a church security guard. A church security guard. That, my friends, is why the average, responsible individual must be allowed to carry a concealed weapon. Imagine what could’ve happened if the gun laws in Colorado Springs were like the gun laws in Chicago. I can’t.
