Christian Leaders fervently react to the worst possible scenario, in context to the Sandy Hook School Shooting, US Christian clerics, continue to express their angst.
As a consequence of the deadly shooting, on Friday in a Connecticut Elementary School, 26 innocents died within minutes- 20 of them kids.
Evangelist and Pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship, Greg Laurie, ardently posted a blog by mid-afternoon .In his blog, he called the school shooting,”Worst Possible Scenario.” “It’s Christmas time, parents bundle up their children another day for school before Christmas vacation starts in the small town of Newtown,Connecticut. There’s shopping to do, errands to run before they pick them up. Then the worst imaginable scenario takes place. A young man walks into Sandy Hook Elementary School and begins shooting. When the horror finally stops 20 children and 6 adults have been shot and killed. This is just heartbreaking.” Laurie wrote.
“The experts will opine on why this happened. All I can say is this was pure evil. The heartlessness and wickedness of this man that did the shooting is really unimaginable. I know from personal experience that the pain of losing a child is a fate worse than death for a parent.” he continued.
“At times like this we must reflect on the essential message of Christmas which is Immanuel has come. Immanuel means God is with us.” Pastor Laurie expounds.
