Gun nuts rejoice: God loves armed ChristiansDecember 12, 2007 — Deacon Duncan
According to the WorldNetDaily, there were many Christians in the Denver-area ministries when a lone gunman showed up, but if you want to know which one God was with, look for the Christian with the gun.
The female security guard who shot and stopped a gunman at a Colorado Springs church yesterday is crediting God for helping her to resolve the threat by killing the assailant.
Jeanne Assam was hailed by Pastor Brady Boyd with saving many lives in her quick response to gunshots fired at the New Life Church.
“I give the credit to God, and I mean that, I say that very humbly, God was with me the whole time I was behind cover,” she told reporters. “It seemed like it was me, the gunman and God.”
Armed Christian security guards, Christian militias, Christians infiltrating and taking over the Air Force Academy–maybe David Koresh was just ahead of his time.
Of course, there are certain other details, which WND conveniently neglects to mention:
Assam is a former police officer who worked in Minneapolis from 1993 to 1997, but was fired from the department for lying during an internal investigation, Minneapolis police Sgt. Jesse Garcia said Tuesday.
Sgt. John Delmonico, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, said police were investigating a complaint that Assam swore at a bus driver while she was handling an incident on a city bus.
“In giving a statement about the incident, she was untruthful and she was fired,” Delmonico said. Assam denied that she swore at the driver, but her actions were caught on tape, he said.
The union arbitrated the case and the arbitrator upheld the termination, he said.
And what about Proverbs 22:6?
Matthew Murray [the gunman] attended a home-based computer school and worked at his computer for three to five hours a day for the past two years.
A neighbor, Cody Askeland, 19, said the brothers were home-schooled, describing the whole family as “very, very religious.”
Christopher Murray studied for a semester at Colorado Christian University before transferring to Oral Roberts, said Ronald Rex, dean of admissions and marketing at Colorado Christian. He said Matthew Murray had been in contact with school officials this summer about attending the school but decided he wasn’t interested because he thought the school was too expensive.
And lastly, which armed person was God really with?
The man who killed four people at a church and missionary training center died of a self-inflicted shotgun wound, police said Tuesday.
Matthew Murray, 24, was struck multiple times by a security officer at New Life Church Sunday but died after firing a single shot at himself, the El Paso County Coroner’s Office concluded after an autopsy.
The sad end of a life spent surrounded by God’s “love.”
