Pastor Averts Crisis When Crazed Man with Gun Enters Church

A Texas pastor has averted a potential tragedy and led his congregation to safety after a crazed man with a gun entered his church.

Christian Today reports that Rasheed Abdul Aziz walked into Corinth Missionary Baptist Church announcing he was “a man of Islam.” Aziz avowed there were demons chasing him and that God had authorized him to kill Christians and Jews.

"Every hair on my neck just stood up," said the Reverend John D Johnson III, the church’s pastor. "It was almost like you could just like feel the presence of just negative energy."

Fortunately, Johnson was a former parole officer and had training in verbal de-escalation. Aziz entered the conference room in which Johnson was working, so Johnson attempted to calm him down before Aziz could enter another room where church members were meeting. 

“Immediately, just like clockwork, it kicked in,” Johnson said, referring to his former training.

Aziz calmed down due to Johnson’s efforts, but when Johnson noticed the gun in Aziz’s pocket, he made an excuse and left the room to alert his church members that there was danger.

"We got a problem. Get everybody out," he told them.

Nasir El Rufai, Governor of Kaduna State Shut Down Assemblies of God Church Facilities

Last week, Nasir El Rufai, Governor of Kaduna state shut down Assemblies of God church owned facilities in Saminaka due to unresolved leadership crisis in the church and also to prevent violent breakouts in the state.

The Governor's intentions sparked mixed reactions from Pulse Nigeria readers.

The facilities that was shut down includes: The Theological Seminary of Northern Nigeria, (TSNN), Shalom Comprehensive College, Assemblies of God Church (Nmbare) Assemblies of God Church (Jerusalem) and AGC Evangelist Hospital.

In a statement released by Governor's media aide, El-Rufai's reasons were for the common good of all, in attempt to avoid violent breakouts since the leadership of the Assembles of God church has refused to settle its differences.

Was the Governor right to have done this? Please share your thoughts.
